During our time at Seduction, we learned a lot about how to go about buying what will work best for you. Here we’ve boiled down all of that information into a few important tips to help you get started. Thank you again to everyone who was so helpful during our visits to the store!

1. If you’re looking for the best of the best, it’ll cost you a couple hundred dollars … but we’ve been told it’s worth it. The more you pay upfront, the less you have to worry about later on, like wear and tear or buying batteries. Let’s be real, what’s more adult than a warranty? The We-Vibe Sync was recommended to us as the most popular and versatile sex toy available—it can be used alone or with someone else, internally or externally, and is adjustable so it can work all along your body. Best of all, it’s rechargeable and works wirelessly through the use of an app, We-Connect!

2. Hygiene is always important, so don’t just use any old soap to clean your sex toys! Definitely use a sex toy cleaner, as they have ingredients meant to thoroughly clean and also preserve the integrity of the product. And if your toy is made of metal, glass, or true silicone, you can always boil them in water.

3. But how do you really go about buying a sex toy? It can be intimidating to make the leap from looking at one to buying one, especially since there’s money and time at stake. For sure, it can feel “easier” to just go on the Internet, read some reviews and decide on something you then get shipped discreetly to your home. However, there’s always some amount of guesswork involved in doing so. What you get might not end up being right for you, or it could even turn out to be a knockoff. Going to a store is worth the peace of mind, especially since you can get all your questions and concerns addressed by an employee who has direct experience and knowledge about all of the products.

4. When it comes down to it, just remember that when you walk into an adult store, people are there to help. More importantly, they’re there to listen—because the more they know about you, the better they can help you find a product that will meet your needs and do the most for you. A lot of us walked in there a bit hesitant about the idea of verbalizing what we think we know about our sexuality, but they always responded openly and really tried to make us feel welcomed and comfortable.

5. Looking to open up with your partner in the bedroom? When you think of BDSM you might shy away or just not know where to start, but we’ve got some simple and easy advice to share with you: play around with the five senses! Start with SIGHT (meaning introduce a blindfold to the equation), move on to TOUCH (using restraints or running a feather across skin), and then TASTE (like the feel of a ball gag or being muted) and SMELL (introducing ambience with a candle or cologne/perfume). But when it comes to SOUND, leave your hearing alone, because there’s nothing better than being able to hear each other’s pleasure (and if you need it, a safe word!)
