A Guide To Choosing The Right Sex Toys For Your Personal Preferences
We have a simple mission here at www.luxetoys.co.au - we want to provide the very best sex toys of all shapes and sizes to buyers with all kinds of needs and desires so that they can have the best experience possible. This objective means that we therefore have a large range of interesting products available for men, women and couples; however, we also realise how daunting this selection can be for first timers who are unsure of what is it they are actually looking for. We appreciate that every consumer has their own concerns about these products and their own personal sexual preferences and hopefully this guide can make choosing your next adult toy less confusing and more enjoyable.
Which is the best sex toy?
We have put this question first because it is actually the wrong one to ask. There is no single, ideal toy; there may be products and brands that sell really well and come highly recommended by other users but this doesn't mean that they are going to be the best choice for you. Sex toys are not just phallic looking dildos to be used for penetration. Instead, it is best to think of them as an eager-to-please substitute for a man and to think about what you really want from sex because there is sure to be a model that can deliver. If you are one of the many women that prefers foreplay and oral clitoral stimulation instead of vaginal penetration, then focus on the options of toys available for this zone. The important thing is to listen to your personal desires and work around them while carefully browsing the different styles and shapes of toys available.
Generally speaking, the main thing you will want to consider is which type of toy will create the type of orgasm that you desire. For women; the choice will be based around either a clitoral or a g-spot type of orgasm. These are the two main types, and women will have different preferences as to which one they prefer. Based on this preference you will want to buy the the correct toy to achieve that type of orgasm. For example, a g-spot toy will provide you with orgasms in that area, and a clitoral toy will take care of orgasms to that area. Some women even prefer to pleasure both of these areas simultaneously, and that's where a rabbit vibe will help you out the most.
The selection of different styles and designs is vast. What else can I do to choose between them?
Looking at designs that are aesthetically pleasing is a great start. There is a stereotypical image of the dildo in the media that filters into the backs of our minds where they are just big, plastic phalluses that are designed for a realistic look and deep penetration. While these versions are available, they are not always that appealing because, in all honesty, the male member is useful but it is not the prettiest of sights. This is where modern sex toys differ; some of them are beautiful objects in pretty shades of aqua, lilac and other colours with smooth, sleek shapes that you can instantly imagine will feel good inside of you. Look at the size and shape and think about what you are willing to handle. Which of these objects would you enjoy taking out of a case and treasure like a loyal friend?
In addition to the aesthetics of your new toy, you will also want to consider its functionality. This means being aware of what type of motor is found in the toy; is it a single or a dual motor? You will also want to consider the various vibration modes or patterns that come with it - some have only a few patterns, whereas others have up to ten patterns to choose from. Speed settings are another thing to consider as well, and it is generally advised to buy a toy that has multiple speed settings so you can experiment with which one works perfectly for your own needs. Remember, what works for one person may not necessarily work for another.
Why are there so many materials to choose from? Which is the best?
The range of materials used in these products has developed greatly as new designs have been made and – to use that stereotypical image again – it is about far more than rubbery plastic and rigid mouldings these days. One of the most popular choices is silicone because it is more supple and offers a much nicer sensation; plastic, metal and glass all make contact with you where it counts but silicone can feel like a soft touch. Metal and glass also have their benefits though because some say that the weight to them gives them a more substantial feel and they often glide more smoothly, meaning less lubrication is required.
At LuxeToys we are very conscious of the materials that these products are made from, and at the end of the day, what substances that are in the product are also what we are putting into our bodies by way of insertion. It makes sense to only buy products that are completely safe to use and are made from approved or "body safe" materials, such as medical grade silicone. You can be assured that all of the products that we stock on our online store are made from completely safe materials for our customers to use.
What is the difference between dildos and vibrators?
This is a good question to ask because there is an important distinction and buyers that just assume they are the same thing could be quickly disappointed if they buy the wrong one. Dildos tend to be inanimate substitutions that are designed to be used for vaginal penetration; vibrators, on the other hand, can be used for the same purpose yet have the additional function of vibrations to stimulate your most sensitive area in a different way. Some can be quite basic with simple high and low settings to increase the intensity at your own pace but others offer a variety of patterns and waves to add something new to the sequence.
Most customers will be interested in purchasing a toy that vibrates as it makes the whole process of achieving an orgasm a whole lot easier - the battery and motors in the toys make the whole experience a "less manual" affair.
Why are there such vast differences in the size and shapes of these vibrating toys? Do they have different purposes?
This goes back to idea that every one has different needs and desires in the bedroom and that there is more to sex than just intercourse. Despite what men are constantly led to believe, bigger is not always better and while some of the larger options will please a lot of women through G-spot, and potentially even A-spot stimulation, the smaller options are just as specialised at giving great orgasms. Many of these smaller examples are ergonomically-designed clitoral stimulators – the flat, tactile silicone heads as soft as a tongue with the ideal surface area. Of course there are also the strange, curved contraptions that say “why choose!” and offer the best of both worlds. Again this does not necessary mean they are better, simultaneous stimulation like this could be too much for a first-time choice.
Aren't vibrators loud? How can I be sure that I'm not buying something that it too noisy?
This is a common concern with any vibrating model because it is harder to get lost in the moment if you are concerned about what your housemate can hear through the walls. These models are getting quieter but it is always a good idea to check the specification for information on the settings and the motor – if it says “whisper quiet” then it should be fine. Additionally, it never hurts to read user reviews of these products to hear about real experiences.
At LuxeToys we are aware that no customer wants a toy that makes loud vibrating noises, so that's why every product on sale has been approved by our specialist team to ensure that they are not only great quality products, but exceptionally quiet to use as well.
What if I want to be a little more adventurous and want to play without some adult toys outside of the bedroom? What other factors should I be looking at?
This is a great aspect to consider because, just like sex itself, there are far more places to play than in bed and it never hurts to be adventurous. Waterproof models are becoming more popular for use in the shower or bath and silicone models and vibrators will say in the product description if they are safe for use in this capacity. Additionally, more toys are becoming portable for greater fun on the road. A lonely business trip is a lot less lonely with one of these friends so look at size, the battery life and the presence of a compact charging unit and discreet travel cases.
Couple's massagers are also very popular and allow for plenty of adventures away from the bedroom. The woman can wear the vibrating component of these toys while the man can control the pattern and intensity of the vibrations. We have heard from customers who have done this while dinning out at fancy restaurants, and the male partner controls the orgasms that his female partner receives. Who needs dessert when you've got that!
The products list mentions products for men and couples. What adult toys are available for us both to enjoy?
Some dildos and vibrating toys are specially designed for the female form, which is great for women, but there are other that have a more simplistic design that can be used on either sex. Some of the biggest brands around now have unisex options that are suitable for all couples – gay or straight – and this means the same great vibration options and materials no matter who you are. Other options include cock rings and female toys that come with a special, wireless control units. Women that like their partner to be in the dominant role can hand over all the controls and lie back with no idea about how intense things are about to get.
How much can we use these products and toys to experiment with our bodies and desires?
That is beauty of some of these unisex products and the great range of features and different materials that can be found these days; there really is something for everyone now and they let users experiment more freely on parts of their bodies they may consider quite so often during sex. Many adult toys can be enjoyed as a couple if you are open and keen to try things together and this can mean anything from anal play to simply testing vibrations on sensitive areas. Just remember to stay safe and hygienic, respect each others feelings and preferences and open your minds to the different options available.
At www.luxetoys.com.au we performed extensive market research with singles and couples to determine which toys were the most popular ones to use. In conduction with this, we spoke with numerous suppliers and manufacturers and hand selected only the best products and brands available to ensure that our customers only get the best selection. Although our product range may cost more than other types, they are all made from very reputable manufacturers and are of the highest quality. There is a big difference between buying a toy that has been built to do its job well, and buying a cheaper one that doesn't do what it's meant to do. With products like these it pays to spend more on something that will undoubtedly make a big difference. At the end of the day it is your orgasms that we are talking about, and wouldn't you want the best?

Due to demand by customers, we have decided to provide additional buying information so that you can make the right purchase of your new toy:
So, what are sex toys?
These toys are an exciting accessory whether using them with others or by yourself. There are a number of misconceptions that those who decide to stay abstinent are the only ones who use them, or those who don't have sexual partners, or by lesbians and gay men. The fact remains, sex toys are used by all kinds of people. Some decide to use them when they're by themselves while partners are away, or together with their sexual partners. Whatever you prefer, it is crucial that you understand the best way to clean the toys if you decide to share them and the best way to avoid transferring any diseases.
Sex toys can vary from toys that vibrate and tickle, to various products which can be inserted into the vagina or anus. Take a look at our variety of toys to find out more on what is out there and how you can best use them.
How can you introduce them to your partner?
You may find that it's not easy to convey your sexual desires, particularly when you are wanting to bring something new into the relationship. Open communication and truthfulness are the most effective strategies for speaking with sexual partners. Your partner must understand where you are coming from, what you are thinking about doing, and their borders will be respected by you to allow this healthy and pleasurable element of your relationship to take off.
What is the best method of using them for maximum pleasure?
Before using your new adult toy make sure you inspect it first; this includes any jagged edges, rips in the surface material, or any other obvious faults or imperfections. Lube is an excellent means to help improve the effectiveness and the enjoyment of any sex toys. It’s best to check with us which lubricant is the most ideal for, or simply follow any specific directions that have been outlined within the toy's manual. For instance, silicone lubricants can damage and deteriorate the surface layer of silicone toys after prolonged use. Flavored lubes are not preferred as the sugar content may interfere with the harmony of a woman’s pH, which may cause yeast infections.
If planning on sharing your toys; including butt plugs, dildos, and vibrators, use dental dams and condoms to assist in preventing the chance of catching germs. Be sure to use another condom or dental dam, if changing the toy to someone else. Be aware; soap is ineffective for removing viruses or bacteria on the toy. Do not add any adult toys into the vagina or the mouth if it's been used without adequately being cleaned correctly or without a condom in the anus. Trust is a huge element if you're using your sex toys together with a sexual partner. If you would like to try it for the first time, try to relax and if desired use some lubricant to make the experience more pleasant.
What is the easiest way of using your new toy?
Appropriate cleaning of your new toy is important to prevent transmission or bacterial infection. It's also crucial to be remove sperm which will be on the toy before, if you would like to prevent pregnancy. It is important to follow the instructions and directions very carefully. If you feel that cleaning the toy correctly would be too difficult or overly time consuming for you, consider purchasing another toy. The information supplied below gives an overall summary for cleaning different kinds of adult toys and is not meant to replace the directions of the maker.
For cleaning toys make sure that you pay extra attention to the instructions, as this is the most fundamental thing to your health. Never submerge electric parts in water unless they are waterproof.
Cleaning nonporous materials: stainless steel, glass, tough plastic, and silicone:
Glass: Wash glass adult toys toys with water and soap. Pyrex toys are dishwasher safe. But try not to expose glass to excessive temperatures.
Stainless Steel: If there aren't any electric parts you have 3 choices: Boil or soak for 10 minutes in a bleach-water solution (50:50 ratio), or put this in the dishwasher.
Tough Plastic: Clean with water and antibacterial soap. Don't boil.
Silicone: Tend not to boil because you are going to destroy the vibrator mechanism.
Cleaning porous materials: nylon, rubber, vinyl, cyberskin, and leather:
Rubber materials: Rubber substances are porous and hard to clean. Moreover, their composition isn't always understood or may include phthalates, substances which have been demonstrated to be dangerous for your health. Therefore, it is suggested to use condoms with these kinds of toys.
Cyberskin is porous and soft, frequently used for dildos. Wash vinyl and cyberskin toys finely with warm water just. Air dry and powder a little number to keep them from becoming tacky.
Leather: Wipe leather products with leather cleaner or with a damp, soapy cloth. Tend not to soak leather. You may recondition your plaything using a leather conditioner. Protect metal parts by applying a coating.
