As the old saying goes: “We are children at heart.” Meaning, we may grow old physically with time, but emotionally and mentally, we will always have an innate desire to want to play. And boy, were they right.

If you’re new to kinky bedroom toys or the idea of self-stimulation, firstly, I want you to know that toys and masturbation are completely normal. Think of it this way: when you’re feeling hungry and there’s nothing in the pantry, you go grocery shopping.

Or, when you’re bored and nothing looks entertaining, you buy a new app or something that looks interesting. So, when you’re feeling kinky and there’s no one around to help you, you buy a new sex toy. It’s that simple. Well, maybe the concept is that simple; however, finding the perfect one for you, that’s a whole other issue.

The first time I bought a sex toy, I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t know what I was looking for or even have the slightest clue about what I wanted it to do. All I knew was that I was feeling a certain way, and I needed to take pleasure into my own hands. So, after not much deliberation, I bought the first thing on Amazon that had great reviews – a simple vibrator. Long story short, I ended up loving it (once I figured out how to use it) and incorporated it into my weekly self-care routine.

For those of you who are new to the world of vibrators and toys, navigating the seemingly endless realm of sex toys can seem quite daunting. So, to help you out, I’ve created “The Sex Toy Guide” to showcase some of the best toy options that one can buy:


The Empress is one of the most popular sex devices on Instagram, with over 1,500 five-star reviews. This sexual wellness device helps empower women by giving them the best orgasm known to men. This kinky device is a vacuum vibrator with eight different suction levels, each designed to stimulate the clitoris and help you get to know your body better. And if you weren’t sold on that, The Empress is water-resistant, so it can be used in the shower or bath with no problems and is easily cleaned. Sounds like a win-win to me.


However, if you’re a newbie to masturbation, the best option for you to go with is, as I said before, the simple vibrator. Except, this vibrator is a little more advanced than the one I used and is sure to give you a mind-blowing orgasm. The Rose is a signature bullet vibrator – perfect for the entry-level woman ready to begin her exploration into the world of self-pleasure.


Your Majesty is one of the best classic wand vibrators on the market. This toy is the most luxurious because of its whopping 25 vibration settings. Whether you’re new or experienced in the world of self-pleasure, this vibrator is a must-have.

Sex toys are the perfect option if you want to take control of your sexuality. They allow you to experiment while displacing anxiety or stress. And depending on your partner, you can use them in the bedroom to ‘spice up’ your sex life.

Most sex shops have dedicated sections for partnered stimulation. It can be as simple as a vibrating penis ring, dedicated to titillating both his erection and her clitoris. But it can also include bondage ideas like sex swings and whips; however, I recommend candidly discussing your sexual desires with your partner before going out on a shopping spree.
