Can I ask you a question?
What was it like getting your first pleasure toy?
If you could go back in time, what would you tell yourself before buying it?
Me, I'd tell myself the following:
Do your research.This is all about YOU!
So make sure that you take time to know the kind of toys out there and take more time to decide which is right for you.
It Doesn’t Have to Look Like a D*ck
This is not to say that you should stay away from dicks or things that resemble them.
There are so many options out there.
Feel free to explore the design-centric sex toys that don’t resemble a dick if you don't feel like getting one that looks like it.
Get a good lube.
Lube is great whether you’re a novice or a sex toy expert.
Lube greatly helps to decrease friction during partnered sex, making it a much smoother and enjoyable experience.
ALWAYS check the materials.
Do a bit of extra research to make sure that your toy of choice really is body safe.
When in doubt, purchase your toy from a reputable company instead.
Look, if it's your first time, I know that buying a toy can be a lot of pressure.
But the point here is to keep exploring.
Keep exploring yourself and experimenting with the kind of sensations you like.
And most of all, have fun!
