If you don’t have any sex toys, chances are you’re curious about toys but don’t know where to start. If this is the first time you decide to buy a toy, you will probably have noticed overblown variety of colours, sizes, materials, prices (which do not always go hand in hand with quality) … it’s like an odyssey and you end up more confused than you were before and you give up on your goal; of getting an erotic toy.

Or, potentially, you have considered getting a toy at the same time you wonder why/if you actually need one. You’re not alone, and the answer is quite simple. According to a research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the use of toys improves sexual function and helps women reach higher levels of arousal making it far easier to reach an orgasm.

If that’s not a reason good enough, then it’s fair to state that sex toys help you to know your body, to get out if the routine if you’re playing with a partner, … and they’re simply always available to give you love. Furthermore, just the fact that women are far likely to reach an orgasm with sex toys, the health benefits of orgasms should never be underrated as I explain in this article: 8 Reasons Why You Should Masturbate More.

Great, ok, so what to consider before buying a vibrator?

1.You can actually have it with just one click
If you’re embarrassed to go out and buy a vibrator and have to explain your life to a stranger face to face, here in Room Privée, apart from having the right toys according to your needs, we can advise you in total confidentiality. Simply get in touch with us through the chat on our site or on Facebook, or send us an email, whatever suits you.

2. The material is the most important part
It is essential to know what your vibrator is made of. The best, and the most recommended, is medical silicone because it is a non-porous material, it transmits vibrations well, has a silky-smooth touch, and is easy to clean.

3. Fall in love with the toy
I know it sounds weird, but I really mean it. Aesthetics is important… choose a vibrator that appeals to you and you will use it frequently; see how useful it is to you and you will fall in love with it and use it more than you ever expected.

4. The size
This is an obvious point, I know, but far too many get a bit confused with this point specifically during their first purchase. There is a wide variety of sizes that suit everyone’s taste and needs. At Room Privée here in Australia and New Zealand we literally have all sizes, so you’ll certainly find what you’re looking for. If this is your first purchase and you’re unsure about what size you should get, I usually recommend sizing down rather than up. You’ll always be able to use a smaller toy, but if it’s too big it might be uncomfortable for some. You can always size up later if you feel your new toy is a bit too small. No need to complicate things :)

5. It doesn’t have to be expensive
You can get a good quality toy without ruining your monthly budget and go without eating the last days of the month. I believe that you should be able to orgasm without going bankrupt, so I’m going to recommend this wand vibrator. It’s made from high-grade medical silicone, has 20 vibration patterns, 100% waterproof, and quite powerful. The price is quite good and there’s free shipping. Perfect quality toy for beginners!

6. You want it to be silent
…unless you have a fetish to let your neighbours know about it every time you play at home. Also, if you have kids you might want to have a little solo fun without the vibrating sound reaching all the way to their room. We test all our products and try to focus on this point. Most of our vibrators are quite silent, and if they’re super-silent we mention that specifically. The wand vibrator I mentioned here above certainly fits the category of being silent. It’s been thoroughly tested :)

7. Can you use it to play with your partner
This is something you might want to keep in mind; whether your partner is a male or female it could be nice if the toy can be shared. There may be days when you want to use it while playing with someone else and, again, starting with a wand vibrator will certainly be useful for him as well.

So, now you know everything you need! Enjoy :)
