    What adult toy is best for you?

    Adult toys are an increasingly popular way of spicing things up in the bedroom. The world of adult toys is ever-expanding, with people's bedside table collections growing alongside the market. Searching for an adult toy online can be daunting as you are taken through page upon page of toys of different shapes, sizes, colours and functions. Knowing what you want, and what will suit you best, can be difficult and many people will be turned away as they simply don’t know what they are looking for. This should not be the case, as adult toys can be an excellent way of bringing a new element to your alone time or your time with a partner(s). In this article, we will provide you with some answers you may be looking for about adult toys so you can elevate your experience to another level. 

    What are the benefits of using sex toys?

    Sex toys, when used in a healthy way, can help to elevate sexual activity for those using them alone, as part of a couple, or more. For those using them alone, adult toys can bring more fun to their masturbation session, no matter their gender. For couples, adult toys can be used as accessories during their time together and can be used on themselves, or on each other, the possibilities are endless. As long as all activity is consensual, you can go crazy. There are many different types of adult toys that you can purchase, and there is something to suit every taste imaginable. 

    Do sex toys increase sexual pleasure?

    Everyone is different. Every body will react differently to stimulation. Sex toys will simply provide a different level of stimulation to regular sexual activity. Adult toys are designed to stimulate the body's erogenous zones. Erogenous zones are areas on the body that respond to sexual stimulation. There are many, many different erogenous zones, and everyone will respond differently when one is stimulated. 

    Erogenous zones are different for both men and women, however, they are relatively similar. The central erogenous zone for all genders is the genitalia. For a man, this is the penis and the scrotum, and for women, this is the vagina. Other erogenous zones include the anus, the inner thigh, the neck, the back, the wrists, the mouth, and much more. Adult toys have been designed to stimulate the primary erogenous zones in different ways be it through delicate touch, penetration, or vibrations. If your body responds well to these stimulations then you may find that sex toys will increase sexual pleasure. 

    If you want to test whether or not a sex toy can help enhance your sexual activity then you can purchase a beginner toy that can help you to explore your own personal pleasure. 

    What are the different types of sex toys for women?

    There are many different types of sex toys that women can use to stimulate themselves or their partners. Here are some of the most popular sex toy types for women:


    Perhaps the most well-known female sex toy type, the trusty vibrator is the quintessential adult toy for women, no matter their tastes. Vibrators provide intense sensations to the most sensitive areas including the clitoris, g-spot, or wherever you want them. There are many different types of vibrators in different shapes and sizes. Regular bullet vibrators provide powerful vibrations in a discrete toy, whereas larger rabbit vibrators offer less discretion, but more stimulation. Different forms of vibrators are also available, including ones that use pulses rather than vibrations. These products claim to be much more powerful than regular motorised vibrators. Vibrators are great for those that enjoy external stimulation, however, can also be used internally. 


    A dildo, unlike a vibrator, is perfect for those who enjoy penetration over clitoral stimulation. Dildos come in different sizes and shapes and can offer different features such as curves, lumps, bumps and nodules. Dildos are ideal for using alone, providing a simulation of penetrative sex. They can also be used as part of couple or group sessions and can be used by both men and women. Dildos are versatile and can be used to satisfy a number of erogenous zones.

    Butt Plugs

    One of the erogenous zones that people are often nervous to stimulate is the anus. The anus contains a high concentration of nerve endings, making it very sensitive when stimulated. A butt plug is a toy that sits inside the anus, they can be different shapes and sizes, but all are designed to provide stimulation to those that enjoy anal play. 

    What are the different types of sex toys for men?

    Men often feel they do not have the same variety of sex toys as women. This is not in fact the case, and the world of male sex toys is ever-expanding. Here are some of the most popular male sex toys available.


    Fleshlights are the most well-known male sex toy. A fleshlight is a male masturbation sex toy. Fleshlights are often artificial vaginas that men use on themselves or are used on them by a partner. They do not have to be vagina-shaped, and you can get fleshlights that are in the shape of anuses and mouths. The internal cavity of fleshlights are often filled with different chambers, ribs, dots, and nodules to provide extra sensation to the penis. 

    Prostate Stimulators

    The male prostate is an incredibly sensitive erogenous zone. Many men do not explore this, however. A prostate stimulator is inserted into the anus and provides pressure and stimulation to the prostate. The male prostate is said to be similar to the female g-spot. 

    Pleasure Rings

    Pleasure rings are soft silicone rings that sit around the base of the penis during masturbation or intercourse. Pleasure rings are designed to help men to last longer, as well as providing a stronger erection. Pleasure rings can come in different shapes, sizes and designs, and can have features such as rabbit ears or a built-in bullet vibrator.
