Q. What do we mean when we refer to “body safe?”
When we say, “body safe,” what we mean is that: the ingredients in our product range (including the materials used) are safe for the body. In truth, the sex toy industry isn’t fully regulated, so some toys may cause infection and may deteriorate in the body or degrade over time. Sex toy safety is exceptionally important. We pride ourselves on being safe and reputable.
Q. Which is better, an internal or an external vibrator?
This answer might sound a little counter-intuitive, but trying toys is always best. This is key. If you usually masturbate by arousing the clitoris, you may be more tempted to purchase an external vibrator, but if you like having pressure inside the vagina or anus, an internal vibrator is the best choice. Sometimes, purchasing a toy that can offer both can be beneficial, so then you can choose which type you like most of all.
Q. Is a toy supposed to be used internally or used externally?
Toy usage is all about personal choice or preference. The toys on our site will generally show you what they are intended for in the title, image or via their specifications. However, it’s ultimately up to you on how you use them. The vagina is typically a few inches deep and nothing can go past the cervix, so you don’t need to become worried about anything going too far. With toys made for anal use, make sure they have a flared or stopper-type base to make sure it doesn’t go in too far. Safety first, always.
Q. Why should I use a dildo?
This question is a good one. Some people enjoy pressure, or a fuller feeling as opposed to vibrations. Dildos place pressure inside the body on the G-spot or prostate (in the case of males), which can provide alternative sensations and orgasms that vibrators mightn’t do. Dildos can be used with specific harnesses to give the feeling of having penetrative sex.
Q. What do I need to know about anal toys?
Anal toys are great for solo or partnered pleasure. Sometimes they’re deemed in mystery and add to the curiosity of sexual play for many. The first important step is to start small and use lots of lubrication. When it comes to anal play, lubrication is key. The next step is starting slow and small. So, this might mean trying out a finger (and then more), and after a time, moving your way up to a smaller toy. This toy should have a flared base, and this will keep your toy from being lost inside of the anus. So… lube, go slow, start small, and choose toys with a flared base.
Q. How can I choose a sex toy gift for my partner?
This can be somewhat difficult, mostly because each individual enjoys different things, but there’s always something sexy for everyone. If you’re gifting your partner and don’t want to ask what they’re in to, you might like to think about what they enjoy when you’re having sex or during any type of sexy play. We have many potential sex toy gifts that you can choose from in our wide and extensive range.
Q. How do cock rings function?
Cock rings (also known as c-rings) are placed around the shaft of the penis or around the penis and testicles. This choice is up to you. Most people use c-rings to enhance the size of the penis. And this is done by restricting the blood flow to the shaft, to keep their erection for a longer time, and so they might have powerful, often longer-lasting orgasms. It’s highly recommended that a new user starts around the penis before trying it around the testicles, though.
Q. I like to enjoy solo sessions in the shower or tub. Do any toys enhance that type of sensation?
We have loads of waterproof sex toys that can be utilized in the bath or shower. There are dildos for women and fleshlights for men, as examples. All our product range will stipulate whether they’re waterproof or not. Some are splash proof, too.
Q. Can my vibrator turn on in my suitcase or when I go through checkout at the airport. How can I ensure this doesn’t happen?
Many toys have a travel lock feature that makes it impossible for the toy to turn on without you unlocking it manually. For those that have batteries, you can simply remove these for added peace of mind.
Q. Do I use water-based or silicone-based lube, and how do I know which is best?
There are a few factors here. Water-based lubricant is safe to use with all toys. Some users like this choice more because it’s an easier clean up, but some other users don’t like having to reapply it as often, as it’s absorbed quicker into the skin.
Silicone-based lubricant can be used with all sex toys, except those made from the material known as silicone. Silicone lube will bond with a silicone sex toy, causing the silicone to deteriorate and degrade, and this compromises the material of the toy. Many users prefer silicone lube though, and this is mostly because it tends to last longer. But others say it’s harder to clean up.
Q. Why is anal lube different?
Anal lubricant is always thicker than other lubes. And so, it lasts longer and gives extra cushioning (or wetness) internally. It’s also it is perfectly fine to use any type of lube for anal play or intercourse.
Q. What is a harness used for?
Used for those who want to have penetrative sexual intercourse. A user might want to wear a harness with a dildo if they don’t have a penis able to penetrate their partner; vaginally or anally. Harnesses help those with mobility issues and they can use a harness to be able to penetrate their partner. There are also harnesses for people with penises, and this allows double penetration, penetration in-between erections, or penetration if someone is unable to maintain an erection, like in the case of erectile dysfunction.
Q. What if I like something more, or my partner does?
The truth is that nothing can ever replace an emotional connection. Sex toys are erotic and exciting, and they can bring something super-saucy to the table. But they aren’t real, or human touch, and can never take the place of a real person. If you do find a sex toy that you love, you can always add it to your fantasy, cos, fore, or even BDSM-play with your partner. And so, it doesn’t have to be the choice between a toy or a partner, it can be both.
Q. Can you tell me how a butt plug is different from other toys used anally?
The addition of butt plugs is often used to give a deeper feeling of fullness that users really enjoy. For females, they might use a butt plug for a double penetration feeling. For males, a butt plug can directly push on the prostate. It’s also true too, that some users choose to leave butt plugs in for longer periods of time, and not just when having a solo session or having sex, but to give a sensual, fuller feeling throughout the day, or perhaps during other activities.
Q. What is a strapless strap-on?
A strapless strap-on usually has one end which is easily inserted into the vagina and is held in place by the Kegel (also known as the PC) muscles, therefore giving the person wearing it the ability to use the other end to penetrate their partner. This occurs without having to hold it into place for the duration of penetrative sex.
Q. Where is the G-spot and how do I stimulate it?
The G-spot is a location inside of the vagina, and in most cases, it’s a few inches forward, directly on the front wall. And if it receives pressure, it can feel extremely pleasurable. Some women can easily feel an extra sensation when their G-spot is stimulated, and some might not be as aroused from that surface area, but it really is unique to everyone. Using a G-spot toy can help a person to know if they like the feel of pressure on the G-spot (or not). Your best bet is to try and see if you like it!
