how not to feel embarressed when buying a sex toy
Sex toys can feel awkward and embarrassing to purchase, and I can completely relate. Shopping for something that is typically viewed as a very private and personal item can make you so uncomfortable that it sometimes even feels like everyone else in the store is staring at you!
Now, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t need to be that way. In fact, from my own experience, I can safely say that buying a sex toy is nothing to be embarrassed about. Here are a few tips and tricks on how to not be embarrassed when buying a sex toy.
First off, before you even walk into a shop, remind yourself that you are not doing anything wrong by buying a sex toy. It’s not dirty, it’s not wrong- it’s simply a means of pleasure.
Once you’ve emotionally prepared yourself, search for reputable shops – ones that you feel comfortable engaging with. This will give you the assurance that you’re shopping in somewhere that won’t judge you, and it’ll also mean that you’re shopping for top quality sex toys with an expert team nearby, should you need any advice.
Another great tip is to do your research before you go into a store. Knowing what you want to buy will make the whole process so much simpler and it’ll also give you the ability to focus on your purchase instead of panic.
Check if the store has a website or online shop, so you can shop from the comfort of your own home. That way you won’t need to leave your house, and you can have the product shipped directly to your doorstep.
When searching online, be sure to look at reviews before deciding on your toy. Reading other people’s experiences can be incredibly helpful in determining if the toy is right for you.
Finally, it’s important to remember that feeling embarrassed is totally natural. Don’t let it put you off your purchase. Everyone has different views on sex and sex toys, and it’s ok to have your own. Ultimately, it’s all about what makes you feel comfortable and what can bring yourself or a partner pleasure. So, go and enjoy it!
Now that you know how not to feel embarrassed when buying a sex toy, let’s look at the different types of toys that you’ll encounter. Typically these are divided into two categories: male and female toys.
Male toys typically include penile pumps, cock rings, and prostate massagers. Penile pumps are cylinders designed to be placed over the penis and to create a suction. This can increase the blood flow and help give you a larger and harder erection. Cock rings are devices designed to be worn at the base of the penis while having sex, helping prolong erections and enhance orgasms. Lastly, prostate massagers are specially designed to massage and stimulate the prostate gland, helping to reach the male g-spot.
Female toys include vibrators, dildos, and anal plugs. Vibrators are designed to provide clitoral stimulation and are usually battery operated. Dildos are usually designed to provide vaginal stimulation and are usually made from rubber or silicone. Finally, anal plugs are typically used to stimulate the anus and can have a variety of shapes and sizes to give you a variety of sensations.
When buying any type of sex toy, it’s always worth considering if the toy comes with any security features. For instance, most vibrators come with silencing technologies, to make them quieter and avoid any unnecessary attention. Furthermore, the featured materials can make sex toys last a long time if you take the necessary care when cleaning them – especially if you’re sharing them with a partner.
Another thing to consider is that many sex toy stores have loyalty clubs where you can earn points or discounts when buying. This can be a great way to save some money on top quality sex toys and can be a win-win-win situation. As well as this, a lot of sex toy stores have a blog which can help you learn more about the toys that you’re looking to buy.
Finally, some sex toy stores also have online communities which allow customers to interact with each other. This is a great way to ask questions and learn about different sex toys. Joining these communities can also help you feel less embarrassed when buying sex toys – since you will be surrounded by like-minded people who can provide you with support.
So, there you have it. Don’t be embarrassed when buying a sex toy – just be confident, do your research and enjoy the experience. After all, it’s all about personal pleasure and fun!
