Discovering Your Body: A Comprehensive Guide to Female-Focused Intimate Toys

No matter where you look, female sex toys are popping up everywhere. You’ll find women’s sex toys on blogs, favorite magazines, social media, and even your favorite TV shows. There is quite a lot of buzz about it, but not much info about the how-to information of the toy. This may leave beginners with questions like, “Should I buy the toys? And how do I know the right one to buy?”

This guide will provide all the how-to information you need. For the first question: Yes, you should! And for the second, you should read on, and you’ll find out.

Getting an Intimate Toy

The road to self-expression and self-pleasure can feel overwhelming when you don’t know where to start. For the most part, you will be bombarded with all sorts of information from the internet. You’ll also probably get lost when browsing the intimate toy options in your local mall or online stores. But if you can find the right one for you, it can make all the difference in your sex life.  

The right sex toys can elevate your erotic exploration from basic to extraordinary, helping you to get to those hard-to-reach places and providing twists that can’t be provided by fingers alone. Plus, it will help you to find the right spots and know what works for you.

The Different Types of Sex Toys

A quick search on Google on the different types of sex toys will probably provide more information that confuses you than answer your question. Plus, new types enter the market every day. However, they can be split into two main categories: internal toys and external toys.

Internal toys are designed for vaginal or anal insertion. Common examples include G-spot vibrators, dildos, and butt plugs. On the other hand, external toys provide external stimulation. Common examples are bullet vibrators, clitoral suction toys, and wand vibrators.

Even more impressive, if there is an area of your body that you like to be stimulated for sexual satisfaction, you can probably get a sex toy to do just that. For instance, if you like breast or nipple stimulation, you can get nipple clamps and suckers to provide the unique sensation you need. 

Here are some more in-depth information on the common types of sex toys


Probably the most popular name on this list, dildo is a non-vibrating toy for penetration and internal massage. A major reason for its popularity is that it can be used for a wide variety of sexual adventures. They can look like a penis but can also vary in size and shape. You can get a big, small, mini, glass, or textured dildo. You can even get a curved one that directly targets the G-spot.


This tool vibrates to stimulate the erogenous zones of the body. There are several types, and figuring out the best one for you depends on which parts of your body you like to stimulate. You can get the external vibrator that stimulates the clitoris and the internal one that stimulates the vagina and the G-spot. If you would like both external and internal stimulation, you can get the rabbit vibrator that does both.

Clitoral Massager

A survey by the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University reports that 37 percent of women say they need clitoris stimulation to achieve an orgasm. This toy can help them to achieve that. It is designed to target the clitoris to bring the person to orgasm. They are also available in different sizes, from the smaller bullet vibes to the more powerful wand vibrators.

Nipple Clamps

The nipple is one of the erogenous zones of the body, so it can be stimulated to achieve sexual pleasure. Nipple clamps work by pinching the nipples to restrict blood flow to the area. You can tug on them to feel pain – if you like that sort of thing. But their primary purpose is when you remove the clamps and blood flow to the nipple. The resultant effect makes the nipple more sensitive and readily stimulated.

Choosing the Right Intimate Toys for You

You might ask, “What is the best toy for me?” However, there is no straightforward answer to this question. All bodies are different, and there is no one-does-all toy for everyone. You need to do a bit of trial and error to find what works for you. Remember that intimate toys are a journey of self-discovery, so be ready to take your time. Don’t rush the process, and be open to experiment.

Generally, we advise you to figure out your budget and how much you will spend. Other factors to consider are the materials. Most toys are made of silicon, glass, wood, and stainless steel. Decide what material you want for your toy, considering that the material decides how you care for it.
