Sex Toys 101
Sex Toys, or Adult Toys as some prefer to call them, are inanimate objects used for sexual gratification. This can be a sex toy that you purchase from an adult store, such as a vibrator or blowup doll, or an item you assemble yourself from everyday household items.
If you've never tried sex toys before, then you're definitely missing out on a truly erotic experience. Whether you sometimes need some sexual release when you're all alone, or want a little extra stimulation during sexual intercourse with a partner, sex toys can help you reach and/or intensify your orgasm beyond your wildest dreams.
What different varieties of sex toys are there? Well, there are plenty of broad categories of sex toys, including vibrators, dildos, anal toys, fetish sex toys, homemade sex toys, and sex toys for men. Within these categories are endless possibilities, all designed to get you off in a way that appeals to you and your erogenous zones.
Vibrator Sex Toys
Of all the sex toys in existence, vibrators are the most widely known of and commonly used of all. There are various designs, whether you desire deep penetration, clitoral stimulation, or a combination of these, and they can be used for some fun solo play or with a partner to increase orgasmic pleasures.
Traditional vibrators are simple, hard-shelled plastic vibrators that are about 4-8 inches in length. They are mainly designed to allow you to feel more vibrations and can be used for targeted stimulation of the clitoris or g-spot and are perfect for beginners.
Dildo vibrators, such as the Pipedream Extreme Toyz Girthquake, are designed to look and feel like a real penis. They are often made of silicone, jelly, or rubber, and can be used for targeted stimulation of the clitoris or g-spot, as well as for in-and-out penetration and thrusting.
Bullet and Egg vibrators, such as the 10 Speed Vibrating Digital Egg, are designed for external clitoral stimulation and are made of plastic or aluminum. They are small and discreet and are perfect to enhance your pleasures during sexual intercourse.
Rabbit Vibrators are the all-in-one vibrators that allow deep penetration, g-spot stimulation, clitoral stimulation, and, in some cases, anal penetration as well, such as the Rabbit Pearl Plus. They look and feel like dildo vibrators, so they are much like a real penis, but they have rotating beads inside for g-spot stimulation and "rabbit ears" for clitoral pleasure.
Almost any vibrator can be used for clitoral or g-spot stimulation, but if g-spot pleasure is your targeted goal, then a G-spot Vibrator, such as the Silicone Taffy Tickler G-spot Massager, is the way to go. These vibrators are long and curved at the end for targeted stimulation of your most sensitive erogenous zone. If clitoral stimulation tickles your fancy, butterflies and pussy pumps are fantastic and are often wearable and useable during intercourse with a partner, unless you prefer to play alone.
If you don't like playing alone, and you both desire some vibrating penetration, there are Dual Vibrators which are double tipped so that you and your lover can both enjoy vaginal or anal penetration and stimulation, reaching orgasm simultaneously.
While any vibrator can be used for anal play, there are vibrators designed specifically for anal penetration. They are designed in such a way to make anal play safer and more enjoyable, and are a great way to practice before trying anal sex with a partner.
If you're bashful and prefer discretion, there are vibrating sex toys for you too. Try a wand, which looks like a regular massager, but is great for outer, clitoral stimulation, or discreet vibrators that are designed to look like everyday objects, like lipsticks or hairbrushes. No one needs to know you have a playful side if you don't want them to.

Dildo Sex Toys
Like vibrators, Dildos are fun sex toys designed for thrusting and can be used for solo pleasure or with a partner. You can use them to penetrate the vagina or the anus, or in some cases both, and are usually molded from a real penis to give you all the sensations of having the real thing even without it.
G-spot Dildos, like their vibrating counterparts, are extra long and curved at the end for targeted stimulation.
Glass Dildos are smooth and more hygenic than any other material and you can even control the temperature before you indulge in playtime.
Strap-on Dildos are usually meant for vaginal or anal penetration of a partner. Just strap it onto your body and start thrusting. However, if you wear your strap-on inside out, you can enjoy some fun masturbatory pleasure. If you and your partner desire simultaneous stimulation, there are Double Dong Strap-ons, such as the Double Delight Strap-on, to help you reach orgasmic pleasure together.
Speaking of Double Dongs, not all of them are strap ons. Some of them are regular dildos with two heads. They can be used for simultaneous anal and vaginal penetration for personal masturbatory fun, or used with your lover so you can both receive some penetrating pleasures.

Anal Sex Toys
Dildos are often used for anal pleasures, but did you know that they make sex toys specifically for anal play? You can use almost any sex toy for anal sex play, but anal toys are specially designed to keep anal sex play safer, keeping your toys from being swallowed up by your rectum. Such toys are designed with a wider base for such safety, and include butt plugs, for a feeling of rectal fullness, dildos and vibrators, for penetration and thrusting, and anal beads, which, when used properly, can enhance your orgasm beyond your wildest dreams!
If you are thinking of having anal sex with a partner, anal toys are a great way to practice without embarrassment to learn what feels good to you. Just make sure you use lots of thick lubrication, start with beginner's toys, such as the Anal Pleasures Kit, and practice the safety tips laid out at Anal Toys 101.
Fetish Sex Toys
If you're interested in anal play, then you may also be interested in fetish sex toys. These are often referred to as BDSM, or "Bondage and Discipline", "Dominance and Submission", and "Sadism and Masochism". Fetish toys often include whips, handcuffs, chains, sex swings, ball gags, and other kinky play things. Ever fantasized about your lover chaining you to a bed before having his way with you? Ever thought about tying up your partner and torturing him until he begs for release? The Fetish Fantasy Beginner's Cuff and Tie Set, and other fetish toys, are just the ticket to a wild night of taboo sexual acts and fantasy play, all within the safety of your relationship.

Homemade Sex Toys
If your vibrating cell phone has ever given you naughty ideas, then I'm sure you've thought about using everyday items to pleasure yourself on those cold and lonely nights. While there are sex toys for every sexual indulgence, you can easily make your own sex toys for those nights when you need immediate release but have no sex toys around. Everyday household items can be used for sexual pleasures. Ever had dirty thoughts while brushing your teeth with an electric toothbrush? Ever wondered how you could hump the couch and actually cum? There are ways, and with a few tips, you're sure to assemble your very own sex toy from everyday household items.

Oh yes, you can make your very own homemade sex toy with these items. Don't believe me? Check out Homemade Sex Toys 101 for all the dirty little household secrets.
Sex Toys for Men
Some men enjoy the same sex toys that women enjoy, specifically used for anal pleasure. However, there are sex toys specifically designed for men, such as dolls, masturbators, pumps, toy vaginas, and cock rings. So if the lotion filled sock just isn't doing it for you anymore, you may like to give the Becky the Beginner Babe Love Doll a good bang.
