Sex Toys FAQ

Listed below are the most frequently-asked questions Lube Analyst receives. Look through the questions, and if what you need to know isn’t listed here, please email us and we’ll get back to you quickly.

What are the sex toys used for?

Here’s a quick breakdown for first-time players.

There are things you stick in…..

We’ll start with the dildos and dongs. They are used to mimic the penis, and are normally inserted into the vagina or the anus. Dildo measurements are given in circumference and length. Don’t let your eyes be bigger than your capability.

Remember, the average male dick is 5.5 inches long, and when you start talking “bigger” that’s not always better.

Most dildos and dongs are made from either latex, gels, or cyberskin. Remember, with dildos, you do all the work. You either stick it in yourself, or you have a partner do it for you.

Moving up from dildos, we have vibrators. These are equipped with small motors that make the dildo go up and down, or side to side.

As a rule of thumb, the more expensive the vibe, the better it is. There are also a lot of inexpensive smaller vibes that women like to use in their own activities. And there are a lot of non-dick vibes also. Like the Venus Butterfly (designed to stimulate the labiae).

And things you stick your thing into….

These are masturbators and are designed to recreate real situations. You can get sucking lips and vibrating vaginas, and all sorts of artificial holes and tunnels for you to insert your dick into. The ultimate masturbators are the dolls, which have tunnels you can stick into and lots of other things.

And things that make your thing bigger!

These include penis pumps and cockrings. These are based on the fact that the penis is like a blood bank.

Fill it with blood, up it goes. Drain the blood, where’s Charley?

The best penis pumps help you get blood into the tissue, and therefore get you hard. Cockrings help hold the blood
in.

Are Sex Toys Safe?

Every toy that Lube Analyst reviews comes from reputable manufacturers (Doc Johnson, Swedish Erotica, Hustler, Penthouse and so on) and the toys have been manufactured to exacting quality control standards. All of the materials used have been tested and approved by various underwriting laboratories.

What’s the most popular sex toy?

There are more than 100,000 different kinds and types of sex toys in the world and they are used in practically every culture from the Australian Aborigines to the Zulus. However, the most popular sex toy is the dildo.

Are there different dildos for men and women?

Although they can be used across the board, generally dildos for use by women have curved tips designed to stimulate the G spot while those used by men have devices to stimulate the prostate (which triggers the orgasm.)

How do you clean sex toys?

The best way to clean them after each use is with hot, soapy water. After they dry, then wipe them down with alcohol. Or you can use any good sex toy cleaner that is for sale on our site.

How do I know what size to get?

The best advice is to start small and then work your way up. Many people like to start with butt plugs that gently strengthen the muscles before moving into dildos. Most experts (and porn stars who should really know) agree that the best way to make the experience even better is to use a lube.

Do only gay guys like their asses played with?

Not all societies consider the anus and rectum to be offensive and “untouchable.” Physiologists agree that the rectum and the anus are the most sensitive parts of the human body.

When a vibrator or dildo is inserted into the male rectum, more than 1,000 different nerve endings become stimulated and, most importantly, the prostate (the master of the sperm) goes bonkers.

It is possible to climax completely from anal stimulation, and this is accepted in hundreds of cultures throughout the world.

Do I need Lube?

By all means! Be sure to use tested and approved lubes for sex toys. These include Doc Johnson, Private, and Swedish Erotica lubes.
