How to choose your first sextoy

Understanding the different types of sextoys

Diving into the world of sextoys is a bit like strolling through a candy store for the first time - so many choices and flavors! There are the vibrators, which whisper or roar according to your preference, and then, the stimulators which, true to their name, awaken your senses with a caress or an electric thrill. But that's not all!

  • The dildos, often phallic, come in a symphony of shapes and sizes for a more 'realistic' experience.

  • The plugs, small or grandiose, are there to explore new territories gently.

  • The penile rings, those acrobats of love, add a vibrant touch to romps.

Each guy has his own personality, his own expertise in pleasure. Choosing a sextoy therefore requires knowing your inclinations, listening to your body, and aligning yourself with your intimate desires. So don't be afraid to question yourself: are you looking for a slow waltz or a furious samba? Your first sextoy will be your guide to this quest for pleasure.

Taking your own anatomy into account

When it comes to pleasure, our personal anatomy enters the scene like a conductor. It's the difference between a symphony that transports you and a concert where we play out of tune. Choosing your first sextoy without taking into account your own carte du Tendre is a bit like playing guitar with mittens, isn't it? So, before you fall for that eye-catching model, ask yourself what will make you tick, literally.

  • The size matters! A sextoy that's too intimidating or, on the contrary, too shy could play tricks on your pleasure.

  • The form should hug your curves, not the other way around. Our body is a map of sensations, so we might as well choose a playmate who knows how to navigate brilliantly.

  • Think about manoeuvrability too: a sextoy should be an accomplice, not a Chinese puzzle.

In short, listen to yourself and let your body choose its first play partner. After all, it'll be leading the dance!

Consider the materials used

So, you're ready to spice up your sock drawer with a first sextoy, but you're wondering what material to invite to dance under the sheets? It's crucial, because it's the peach skin of your forbidden fruit that's going to woo her. Sex toys are like costumes for your private parts: they need to be both comfortable and seductive!

  • Silicone: The darling of the toy cupboard! Soft, supple, and most importantly, hyper-hygienic. Have you got your eye on it? Make sure it's 100% pure, for a flirtation without faux pas.

  • Glass: Iced or warmed, glass takes you through a tango of temperatures. Don't worry, it's tough; no breakage without your consent.

  • Metal: For those who like their caresses with a bit of weight, metal is the deal. It's as easy to clean as a plate after a squeegee.

Every material has its fanfares and false notes. Choose a safe and quality material, because your body deserves a red carpet, not a clown act. And remember, the best material will be the one that thrills you as much as your sextoy!?
