Walk into a sex toy store — or visit online stores like Lovehoney — and the choices can be overwhelming and even intimidating. Do you want a wand vibrator with a dozen vibration modes or a bullet vibe that can fit in a Jacquemus Chiquito bag? Will a rabbit-style vibe live up to its Sex and the City reputation? What size and shape butt plug is the right one for beginners? How do couples’ sex toys even work? How do you even know what's best?
We hear you and we’ve got you. Ahead, we’ve put together an amateur-friendly guide to all the different sex toy options out there. Whether they’re designed to stimulate the clitoris, G-spot, penis, anus, nipples, butt, or somewhere else entirely, the choices are seemingly endless. But once you have an idea of what does what, and what might suit your style — targeted clitoral stimulation, for example — then you can begin to search for your perfect toy.
