Dildos. Vibrators. Cockrings. Butt plugs. If you're a newbie to the wonderful world of sex toys, you might find them a bit intimidating. But don't worry, we've all been there, and I've got some useful tips that can help ease you in slowly (somewhat like the aforementioned butt plug).
First things first, don't jump straight into the heavy stuff. Start off with something small, something that doesn't require a huge investment of money or effort to enjoy, and something that you wouldn't be too embarrassed walking up to the counter with. Like this little beauty:
I know quite a few ladies who began their sex toy collections with this little wonder. It's not too high-tech, it's not too expensive, and you can adjust the controls to find what rhythm and intensity suit you. You can insert it (wherever you want) and use the remote control to find the perfect vibration setting. You can also use it on the clitoris directly.
Aside from the fact that it's a versatile and fun toy to play with, it's small and simple enough that it's not intimidating - to a girl as her first toy (whether she buys it for herself or whether an open-minded partner gets it for her) or to her partner. It can be used solo or with your partner, and can be really fun for both parties - especially if his or her tongue gets tired! It's also pretty easy to find one either at your local adult toy shop or online - lots of brands make them and they're pretty popular! If you only ever buy one toy, I'd recommend this one.
Bonus Tip: You can often buy spare bullets in case you wear out the motor on your first one!
