Every day, we help our customers find a toy that is right for them. Sometimes it is their first toy, other times it’s their twenty-first toy.
When shopping for sex toys, there’s always going to be a bit of trial and error. There’s no way to know what you like if you don’t experiment, right?
My first purchase at Our Pleasure was just months after the store opened on Water Street. My boyfriend at the time and I, shyly walked in and talked to each other in whispers – both excited and mortified all at once. It’s not like we were new to sex, we were both in our early twenties, but we were new to sex toys. We shuffled around for a bit before settling on this. My first vibe. It was slim and pink and not intimidating at all. We picked up a bottle of lubricant and walked to the end of the block where our apartment was and stepped lightly into the world of adult toys. Let it be known that I was late for work that afternoon :P
Over the years, until I actually came to work here, I experimented now and then with toys. A lots of misses with very few hits. After emptying my wallet a few times on vibrators, I finally realized that I enjoyed these toys much more when the vibration was turned off. See? Trial and error!
Now that I work here, I get to learn about all the toys on the market without vibration or toys that move without vibrating, that I may love. Even now, it’s still trial and error sometimes. I do, however, know what I like and what I dislike and that comes with experimenting!
What was your first sex toy? Was it a dud or was it the best thing you’ve ever purchased? We’d love to know your experiences!
