I recently encountered a friend of mine who asked me a question out of nowhere; “Hey, can you buy used sex toys?” I must admit, I was a bit taken aback by the question and didn’t know what to say. After a moment of contemplation, I realized that I had heard of this before; that it was possible to buy used sex toys.

So, I made a brief explanation to my friend about how the sale of used sex toys has been around for quite some time. I told her that used sex toys are commonly sold in sex shops like Adam and Eve’s or in online sex toy stores like Lovehoney, among other places. I went on to tell her that second-hand sex toys can be a good option for those looking to save some money as it can be significantly cheaper than buying new sex toys.

Then my friend asked me, “Are there any risks when buying a used sex toy?” I told her that, like any other used item, it could be of lower quality and not as reliable as buying new, but there is also the risk of buying a used toy with unknown infections. Thus, it is important to research the seller’s reputation prior to making a purchase. And I went on to explain that if you do end up buying a used sex toy, it’s always wise to thoroughly clean it before use.

My friend then asked me what kind of used sex toys are available for purchase. I explained to her that there are all sorts of sex toys available, including vibrators, dildos, butt plugs and many others. Plus, there’s a wide variety of materials used to make these toys, including silicone and glass, and even metal. Many of the sex toys come with different features as well; some may be adjustable, air-operated, and have multi-speed options, among others.

My friend proceeded to ask me what my opinion is on buying used sex toys. I explained to her that it really depends on the user and their preferences. In my opinion, it’s totally fine to buy a used sex toy if the user is willing to do the necessary research and clean the item thoroughly before using it. However, I do recommend buying new sex toys for increased safety and enjoyment.

In conclusion, there are some key factors to consider when buying a used sex toy. It’s important to research the seller’s reputation and to be aware of the potential risks. Before using a used sex toy it is highly advisable to thoroughly clean it first, and in any case, buying a new sex toy is recommended for increased safety and enjoyment.
