I don’t know about you, but my first experience in a traditional sex shop was not the most pleasant. With a salesperson watching my every move, I felt no privacy at all. Since this was supposed to be a fun and exciting thing to do with my boyfriend, I can only say that the experience was not as exciting as we expected.

So we decided to see if going to an online sex shop would be more our style. Just the fact that we could sit together at the computer screen and look at everything that was available was definitely more enjoyable. Just fantasizing about using this or that, or explaining how we would use this sex toy on each other, in complete privacy was definitely a turn on.

One thing we did notice, were the prices. Toys in online sex shops were unbelievably lower. Even taking shipping costs into account, the final purchase price is much lower than in high street stores. Some of these online sex toy stores even had free shipping if you purchase over a certain predetermined amount of dollars.

Once we discovered the sex toys we wanted to buy, we had the opportunity to compare prices and find the best prices. There are some great price comparison tools out there if you look around. Shopzilla and Google Product Search are some of my favorites. They allow you to search for a particular product and see the different online sex shops that have them and compare prices. Thus, it is possible to get the most out of your investment (pun intended!).

So, all things considered, here’s what we found to be the pros and cons of each sex toy store:

Buying in an online sex shop will save you money if you know how to buy and compare. You will also have a much more private shopping experience. We found that shopping from the comfort of our couch was fun, exciting, and only led to more sex talk and jokes.

However, the disadvantages are that you cannot touch and see the products. So knowing if the vibrator you want to buy is big enough, vibrates enough, or just feels like what you want is not possible when shopping online unless the website has live chat. Some sites will offer live help to get answers to questions you may have.
