The Do’s And Don’ts Of Buying Sex Toys Online

The Do’s And Don’ts Of Buying Sex Toys Online

Deciding on getting a vibrator or any kind of sex toy can be a difficult decision for some people, but even after they’ve made up their minds, deciding on how and where to get it is another dilemma entirely. Most people would rather avoid the hassle of walking into an adult store themselves, so they turn to online stores to get their products. 

However, even that can be a hassle because there are many things to consider, like how do you know you’re getting what you ordered? Is it safe? Will the package be labelled with the adult store's logos and much more? To ease the stress of this process, we’ve compiled a list of things to do and what to avoid when ordering those pleasure tools online.

Decide On The Toy You Wish To Purchase

For first-time users, you might be amazed at the vast variety of sex toys available to you and picking one can be tough. Do you want vibrators? Well, they come in so many different shapes and sizes. How about dildos? Well, those can either be hands-free models, strap-ons, or models with suctions at the base that can be placed on a table or fixed to a wall. In addition to dildos and vibrators, there are also fleshlights, anal beads, penis rings, nipple clips, and much more. We advise that you pick which ones you feel resonate with your desired outcome and move on to the next step.

Check The Kinds Of Materials The Toys Are Made With

With relaxed FDA regulations when it comes to sex toys, some manufacturers try to cut corners by making toys using materials like plastic, rubber, vinyl, and PVCs. And while these materials aren’t generally harmful, they are made into sex toys using chemical substances.

Some of them can be porous, making them a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, and you do not want those anywhere near your sensitive areas. One way to avoid these materials is by checking the ingredients used in making them. Most legitimate online stores like the Be Daring Adult Sex Shop state these below each product. 

Another way to be extra sure after the order has been delivered is by smelling the items. Those with strong plastic “new car” smells most likely contain these toxic materials and should be returned immediately.

Avoid Going For The Cheapest Toys

As we’ve established earlier, some toys can contain toxic chemicals and materials, and they are usually the cheapest in the bunch. Try opting for sex toys made using silicone as it is the best-recommended material to be used on sex toys.

Always Check Reviews On Each Item And Store You Purchase From

With the help of the internet, most people can leave reviews on their experiences with online stores and the items they purchased. Try to avoid stores with no review system on their platform or no web page for public reviews. They are probably hiding something.

Avoid Ordering On Amazon And Try Dedicated Adult Online stores

We know ordering on Amazon might be second nature to most people. Still, when it comes to discreetly purchasing sex toys, Amazon might not be the best option. Amazon features 1st and 3rd party sellers, most of which don’t have discretionary shipping policies, so you might end up with a box labelled “Kinky Pricks Adult Sex Store” delivered on your front door step. Furthermore, your search history and suggestions will now feature sex toys.

Instead, try some dedicated online stores, they understand the discretion that comes with ordering sex toys, and most of them even have coupons and promos to attract customers, which would be to your advantage.
