So, you're ready to take the plunge and buy your first sex toy, but where do you start? How to wade through the hundreds of options and choose a beginner-friendly toy that feels great, is easy to use, and is affordable, too? Here are my top picks for the best sex toys for beginners.
Best bullet vibrator
Femme Funn Booster Bullet There's nothing like a good bullet vibe for solo sessions, intercourse, and taking along when you travel. What sets the Booster Bullet apart from similar toys is its deep, rumbly power, a rare feature when it comes to vibrators this size. It's also flexible, waterproof, compact enough to use in almost position, and the price won't break the bank.

Best vibrating wand for beginners
Femme Funn Ultra Wand The Femme Funn Ultra Wand delivers penetrating power in a pretty, waterproof package. Cloaked entirely in beehive-patterned silicone, the Ultra Wand is a cinch to clean and goes easily from bed to shower (or tub, pool, or ocean). This silky-smooth toy includes a Boost Button for a blast of intense stimulation to push you over the top.
Best dildo for beginners
Avant Ergo Mini I couldn't have designed a better starter dildo than the Avant Ergo Mini. Made from dual density silicone that feels soft and squeezable on the outside and firm on the inside, the Ergo Mini is perfect as a first anal or vaginal toy. The dimensions are beginner-friendly, too: 5.25 inches insertable length, 1.25 inches in diameter. And all for under $40.

Best butt plugs for beginners
b-Vibe Snug Plug 1 This silicone plug checks all the beginner boxes. It's petite, body-safe, and torpedo-shaped for easy insertion. The slim neck makes it easier for the sphincter muscle to close tightly and keep the plug in place. This toy is also slightly weighted, which helps to relax the anal muscles (key for anal sex prep). Lastly, it has a T-bar base for anal safety and peace of mind.
ROMP Bass Vibrating Butt Plug Looking for a body-safe vibrating butt plug that's the perfect starter size and budget-friendly, too? ROMP has granted your wish with the Bass, a stylish green and yellow toy with an anal-safe T-bar base and 10 vibe modes. Feel free to take this waterproof beauty into the bath or shower.

Best G-spot vibrator for beginners
Pillow Talk Sassy I used to wonder what all the hype was about the Pillow Talk Sassy, and then I tried it. In my experience, no toy does it better when it comes to G-spot stimulation. The Sassy is powerful, with deep rumbly vibes that penetrate all the way through the clitoral network. The girthy, nerve-stretching shaft feels phenomenal and the settings are super-easy to operate if you're new to toys. 10/10 highly rec.

Best rabbit/dual stimulation toy for beginners
Romp Jazz ROMP is one of my favorite brands to rec to beginners and the Jazz rabbit-style vibrator is one of the reasons why. Body-safe, well-designed, and powerful, the Jazz is a great introduction to dual stimulation. It has 10 vibe modes and a textured shaft for a little extra sensation. It's also fully waterproof and budget-friendly.
Best prostate toys for beginners
Aneros Eupho Trident The prostate experts at Aneros have created the Eupho, a slimmer toy with the length and curve to target the P-spot. This hands-free toy is designed to pivot on its own in response to your muscle movements, creating deep internal stimulation and more intense orgasms.
Quest Vibrating Prostate Bullet It doesn't get easier than the Quest Bullet. Insert it, turn it on, and discover prostate pleasure -- it's as simple as that. The Quest isn't the most powerful prostate vibrator on the market (for that, check out the Lelo Hugo), but it's a great way to start exploring your prostate with a body-safe toy that won't break the bank.
