Adult Pleasure Toys: 5 Of the Most Common Mistakes You’re Making
No one is born an expert in sex toys. There’s only one way to find out what works for you and that’s by trying them out. However, it can be a daunting concept! A nudge in the right direction can only play to your advantage. To help you on your way, we thought we’d outline some of the most common misconceptions and mistakes that are made when experimenting with adult pleasure toys.
Buying Without Researching
Time and time again, people buy their sex toys without taking a good look at the product specifics. With something so personal, you want to be sure you’re getting something that suits you. Think of it this way, you’d never spend money on a dress that didn’t suit you, just because it was popular. It’s the same for adult pleasure toys, just because it works for someone else, it might not necessarily work for you. Everyone is completely different and buying sex toys is down to personal preference. Think about what turns you on, what you like in bed and what you’d like to try. There is something for everyone, so by doing some research, you’ll find exactly what you’ve been missing in no time!
Bigger Is Not Better
Especially when you’re starting off! Don’t be tempted to go for the biggest vibrator or the largest dildo because everyone else seems to be doing it. By all means, if you know that the larger sizing floats your boat, then go for it. But, we suggest building up to the bigger toys, especially if you’re beginning your pleasure journey, the last thing you want to do is hurt yourself!
This one is easily forgotten during a steamy session. Using lube when you’re using a sex toy is like putting butter on bread. It’s a must! Not only does it ensure maximum comfort every time, but it enhances any sexual experience. From different flavours to exciting sensations, there are so many to choose from. Take a look around and you won’t be disappointed next time you indulge!
Not Cleaning Correctly
One of the most common mistakes is people not cleaning or storing their adult pleasure toys correctly. It’s imperative that you clean your sex toys before and after use. If you don’t, you are likely to get a bacterial infection, yes, bacteria lives on sex toys. Each toy has different cleaning instructions depending on the material and nature of device, but for the vast majority, washing in warm water and soap is sufficient enough.
Your adult pleasure toys must be dry before you store them. If they’re not, there’s a possibility that mould could grow on them. Let’s face it, you don’t want to be putting that inside of you! Dry your toys off after cleaning and store them separately in a plastic or cloth bag. This will avoid further cross-contamination.
‘Sex Toys Are for Bad Sex’
Hands up if you’ve heard this one, or maybe even thought this before? So many people feel intimidated by adult pleasure toys because they’re worried that their partner will feel insecure and react negatively. We used to hear that if you need a sex toy, your partner can’t fulfil you and sex must be bad. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Pleasure toys are a sexual enhancement and using one with your partner only develops more excitement in the bedroom! Pleasure products are the key to intensifying intimacy and pleasure between you both. It’s worth discussing what you’re both looking for in a sex toy. Having a real conversation ensures you’re both on the same page.
