Top Tips for Sex Toy Success!
Now that you know the major types of sex toys, you can get started with these valuable tips.
Flawed sex toys are hazardous to your genitalia. Before using any toy, check for any imperfections including rough seams, tears, or cracks to avoid skin irritation.
Start off with something simple and work your way up to more adventurous toys
A bullet vibrator is a suitable starter as it’s intended to be used on the outside of your vagina and therefore less evasive. Then after when you get a hang of the bullet vibe, you can try vaginal and/or g-spot vibrator which is solely meant for penetration.
After that, you can go all-out with a dual-action vibrator such as the rabbit for both vaginal and clitoral stimulation.
Use a Lubricant
Lubricants make sexual activity more comfortable and pleasurable. Every woman should have one in hand since naturally occurring lubrication doesn’t always occur for a myriad of reasons.
To avoid viral and bacterial infections, don’t insert a sex toy in the mouth or vagina if it has been used in the anus without a condom or without being washed properly. If a condom was used with the sex toy, replace the condom with a new one before inserting the toy in the mouth or vagina.
If it hurts, Stop!
When experimenting with your partner, don’t be afraid to set the limits. A safe word is useful in this case.
Proper cleaning of sex toys is essential to avoid bacterial infection or transmission of venereal diseases.
Don’t be fazed if something goes wrong. Always remember that the sole purpose of sex toys is to bring the fun.
