Try shopping online. There are forums and product reviews for every dildo, vibrator, strap-on and bondage gear out there. There are entire subcultures that have grown up around the world of love dolls. You can get an exact replica of your favorite porn star’s vag nowadays. Just load up her picture on your computer screen, and wail away like there’s no tomorrow.

Sex toy reviews are helpful because they give you a sense of what exactly the product will do, whether people have had significant issues with it, and how easy the thing is to clean—all important factors to consider before purchasing.

Avoid used sex toys. This is one place where you don’t want to save a dollar. I’ve seen used toys online. I’ve even seen used dildos in donation boxes. Even if the threat of infection is low, the ick factor is way too high. It’s worse than buying used underwear!

Another problem is that the plastics and rubbers used in such devices tend to break down over time and get toxic, especially when they have regularly combined with lube. Trust me.

Visit your local sex shop. If you’re shopping for another person, it’s helpful to ask them what their needs and desires are first. I bought an old girlfriend a cordless vibrator, so she could use it more places around the house. Turns out that she needed corded ones because they deliver so many more kilojoules of hammer power, which she needed and expected to stimulate her clit.

Ask questions. Shop retailers sell this stuff for a living, and they expect to have conversations about their products. You’re in a non-judgmental space where you can bring these subjects up, so don’t be shy! Reach out and ask questions about what you want and desire.

Have fun!
