Liz’ Favourites: My Essential Sex Toys

Favourite Sex Toys from an early age

White Drawer with three vibrators inside

Since I was eighteen years old, I’ve always had a sex toy. My partner at the time bought me my first one, and I bought a second one soon after. Continuing with the theme of self-care, masturbation is, of course, vital. My vibey friends have made it possible to fall asleep on numerous occasions. They have provided me with distraction, relaxation and stress relief. For someone who struggles to let go and relax, this has been instrumental in my life. So what were my first loves in this area, and where can you buy them today?

Rabbit Vibrator

One day, as my boyfriend at the time and I were browsing through the red light district in Amsterdam, as you do :p, my partner bought me my first vibrator. Back then I thought it was called a Tarzan vibrator, but nowadays they’re known as rabbit vibrators. It had beads inside that twirled. I believe it even ran on four AA batteries. The toy was hefty, and it was not made of body-safe materials. It was the year 2000, so I had never heard of silicone and whether other materials could be dangerous. I don’t know if they were. I’m still here.
Anyway, I loved that vibe. It filled me up nicely, I love the feeling of the beads moving inside of me, and once turning on the rabbit, it would lead me to a certain orgasm. It was my dear friend for many years.

Many upgraded variants today are available. The Happy Rabbit Realistic Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator seems like a decent successor. It’s made of body-safe silicone (yay!), it’s rechargeable and waterproof. I think 18 yr old me, would have liked this version even better.

Purple G-Spot Vibrator

Once you have one vibrator, you start looking around to see what else is out there. I ordered a purple G-spot vibrator through a mail-order service. Can you even imagine what that was like? Filling out a card and mailing that to the company? I don’t know how long it took to arrive, but it wasn’t next day delivery.
Anyhow, I loved this vibrator maybe even more than the first one. I didn’t use it often as a G-Spot vibrator. Instead, I would put the head to my clitoris, and it would lead me to quick and easy orgasms without the hassle of having to insert anything. It was made of hard plastic. Not sure how body safe that was, but better than the first one.

Today, there are many follow-ups of this model available. One of these is Lovehoney G-Slim G-Spot Vibrator. The model is precisely the same as the one I used to have, though the specs are slightly different. Unfortunately, it's not rechargeable but runs on two AA batteries. It is waterproof, and even though it's also made of hard plastic, I'm sure the material is better for your private parts than mine was. It looks like a great follow-up to the toy I used to have.

Dildo

Remember how I said I ordered my G-Spot vibrator from a catalogue? That's precisely the reason why my first dildo was such a failure.
I figured I ought to have a toy that resembled a real penis, that's why I chose the model. I think it could vibrate too.
The problems with this toy were numerous: it was too big for me, it was made of hard plastic so very uncomfortable and overall unpleasant.
So why is it in my list of essential toys? Because I think everyone who's into sex toys, should also own a dildo. To this day, they're not my favourite toys, even though I have several different sizes and models. But they're essential during play!
Dildos are versatile and can be used in many different ways. They can be extra stimulation during oral sex. Many have suction cups which are great for self-fucking. And sometimes my husband just wants to watch me pleasure myself with a dong such as this.

An updated toy to the one I used to own is the Lifelike Lover Luxe Realistic Silicone Dildo 6 Inch.
This dildo is not too big, what I prefer, and it's made of silicone. I love the way that it's shaped and it has the suction cup that I mentioned earlier. It looks like an excellent pick for 2020!

Variety

In my opinion, it's best to have a variety of toys at home. And no, you don't have to all buy them on day one. You can take your time to choose what you think suits you best. In my experience, I use different toys at different times. And no, you definitely don't need the most expensive toys to reach a great orgasm. My purple G-Spot vibrator was one of the cheapest ones available. Just be mindful of the materials used and whether you want it to be rechargeable. Most importantly: stay safe and have fun!
