Expensive Sex Toys Might Be Worth It

Expensive Sex Toys Might Be Worth It

“The great thing is that you're almost always going to be able to find something a little bit lower priced that's similar in shape to the more expensive toys,” Lisa Finn, sex educator and brand manager for Babeland, tells SELF. So if you’re new to toys or are looking to try something different, starting in the lower range can make a ton of sense. Then, when you figure out if that type of toy works for you, you can upgrade to something more expensive with a similar size and shape.

If you know what you want and investing in a sex toy makes sense for you right now, keep reading to see why it can be such an excellent decision.

1. Expensive sex toys might open you up to a wider range of sensations.

In the world of sex toys, There are two types of vibration: rumble and hum. “Generally speaking, most people prefer rumbly because rumbly will give you a deeper vibration,” Robo said. The buzz toy gives a sense of superficial level, with vibrations located on top of any tissue where you place it. However, the rumbling vibration penetrates deep into the tissues, so if you have a vulva, you will feel it not only on the vulva, but also on the entire wishbone nerve bundle below. Although you can find some cheap toys with rumble vibrations, rumble toys—like Silicone Rechargeable Anal Vibrator With 6 Vibration Modes ($45.99, Anal Vibrator)—most often come at a higher price tag.

Even at a minimum, more expensive toys may start thinking about vibration power. For people who are new to toys, the high power (or faster) of better quality toys may actually be shocking, but because they are used to vibrations, it may be better.

2. They also usually have better designs.

The design includes the shape of the toy, the placement and creation of tools, machinery, and so on. Really good design considers how people use toys and creates features that make these use easier. Hold hold.

I believe you can indeed find cheaper versions of the most expensive sex toys, but design research usually affects the effectiveness of rabbit toys. Take the vibrator as an example. It is a very popular sex toy. A bigger episode of "So Fashion City" is a famous episode, but there are many different versions of toys-resulting in your possible experience with three rabbits and your experience with only another rabbit.

The rabbit is made of hard plastic, and the outer arm is not flexible (partially), which means you can only get out of the car when your rabbit, clitoris and toys are completely virtual. , Your rabbit with this design will be a cheaper version. However, designers who create more expensive sex toys already have the outline, that's what the desire to make these toys create like mice. The key to fascinating.  Heating Mute Rabbit Vibrator ($60.99, Heating Mute Rabbit Vibrator ), Double Motor Wave ($56.99, 9 Modes Rabbit Vibrator Double Motor) and Plump And Round Head Soft Rabbits Vibrator ($44.99, Plump And Round Head Soft Rabbits Vibrator) have flexible inner arms, soft outer arms, or Both, so that your clitoris will have a message contact.

3. It will likely contain better and safer materials.

Any sex products you buy in good sex shops such as Babeland or Smitten Kitten should be safe for your body (the term is described as a toy made of materials that are known not to cause harm, which is a prerequisite for your proper cleaning and maintenance) Yourself), but not all toys contain materials that are safe for the body or materials that are safe for the body.

For example, you’ll often find cheaper toys contain something called jelly rubber. Certain jelly rubbers are “body safe,” Finn says, pointedly using air quotes to indicate that not all jelly rubbers fall under this category. But jelly rubber is porous, which means it can, and most likely will, start to harbor bacteria over time. “If it begins to change color or hold a smell, you have to get rid of it because it’s no longer body safe,” Finn says. This doesn’t mean that you’re guaranteed to get something like a vaginal infection if you use a porous sex toy that’s harboring bacteria, but it can theoretically increase your risk if all the stars align perfectly (especially if you’re not cleaning the toy), SELF previously reported.

With more expensive sex toys, you’ll find materials like pure silicone (sometimes medical grade), hard metals like platinum, and glass—none of which are porous and, therefore, less likely to harbor bacteria (though you should still clean them regularly).

Some less expensive toys are actually also made out of nonporous materials, like ABS plastic. This material is generally considered body safe, “but there's nothing dampening the vibrations,” Robo says, and dampening is important for creating a better-quality vibration. “A lot of the more expensive toys are encased in some layer of silicone, and the quality of silicone varies the more expensive the toy is,” Robo says. This layering, which leads to dampening, helps in making a toy’s vibrations more rumbly and therefore more intense.

4. Expensive toys can save you money in the long run.

A warranty might not be the sexiest thing to think about when it comes to your sex toys, but having a long warranty protects you and your money. While a $20 toy is cheaper upfront, it can easily become more expensive in the long run. “If you buy a $15 toy, and it has a 30-day warranty and breaks after two months, you have to go back and buy a new one,” Finn says. “If you get a vibrator that has a two-year warranty and it breaks after two months, you can trade it in for another one. If that happens five times over two years, it doesn’t matter.”

And if you use your vibrators often it’s almost a certainty that your $20 toy will break, sending you back to the store (and potentially adding more plastic to landfills, Finn points out).

5. You probably won’t need to replace batteries.

Another thing that will save you money in the long run: not having to replace batteries all the time. You’ll be hard-pressed to find an expensive sex toy that uses batteries—they’re nearly all rechargeable now. Less expensive toys can also be rechargeable, but many still run on batteries, which add up over time as you have to replace them again and again (plus, it’s a real bummer when the batteries in your toy die suddenly while you’re using it).

6. It will probably have other cool features.

For those who like the idea of using their vibrator during a long, luxurious bath, more expensive toys offer vastly better waterproofing. There’s usually just one small silicone piece protecting the motors on cheaper waterproof toys, Finn says. But more expensive toys have mechanisms protecting both their motors and wiring from water. Toys like the Crave Bullet ($59, Crave) are standouts for splash-proof and waterproof play, Finn says.

App connection is another great feature you’ll get with many of the more expensive toys these days. “You can have a partner control them from far away,” Robo says, adding that some sex toy apps allow you to create your own vibration patterns.

7. Your pleasure is worth it.

More power, deeper vibrations, safer materials, and a vibrator that probably won’t break within a year. Those all sound like great reasons to consider an investment vibe to us. But more importantly, choosing a pricier vibrator if you can is also an investment in your sexual pleasure. “Which one is going to last you five years?” Finn says. “Which one is going to be as good the 1,500th time as it was the first?”

Society generally teaches us that sex is shameful—something to be hidden. But your pleasure is worthwhile, and it’s worth the splurge.
