Sex Toy Guides

If you need the low-down on a specific type or category of adult toy, welcome to my in-depth sex toy guides here at the Cara Sutra sex blog. As mentioned over my general sex toy advice area, the world of sex toy shopping can be baffling once you see just how many different types, materials and brands there are. I’m here to help guide you towards the best pleasure purchase for you, giving you all the information you need about every type of sex toy so you can make an informed decision based on the criteria you set.

First of all you should consider what type of sex toy you’re seeking guidance on. I have comprehensive guides for magic wand vibrators, bullet vibrators, love eggs & jiggle balls, strap-on sex harnesses and dildos, sex machines and many more types. These guides offer you information on how to use these sex toys and the benefits other people have reported, what the major retailers stock in that department, which leading brands you should look out for and which ones to avoid. I also link to the thousands of sex toy reviews here on the blog relevant to the specific type of sex toy you’re looking for advice about.

Other aspects considered in my guides are the sex toy materials, who would likely benefit from using that type of toy, as well as the different price ranges and how that is or isn’t relevant to quality and effectiveness levels. Therefore, these sex toy guides should provide all you need to know when it comes to selecting the perfect sex toy for you in terms of style, effectiveness, body safety and price.
