Sex toys are a lot like crisps. You can’t just have one. Most people start out popping their sex toy cherry with something small and low-key and then wind up filling an entire drawer with their favourite toys. While not everyone will turn their spare bedroom into a sex dungeon, it’s nice to be able to round out the collection with an array of ticklers, teasers and pleasers.
For the budget conscious, which nowadays is most of us, rounding out the collection can be costly. This is why we’ve put together this budget guide to the best sex toys for those who don’t want to spend a fortune on their orgasm.
Sex toys on a budget
The first thing you need to remember when buying sex toys on a budget is that you should still go for reputable brands from reputable retailers. While you might see super cheap prices on sites like Amazon, the way the platform is set up means that you can be looking at a listing for a branded sex toy, but the order can be fulfilled by a company that sends you an off-brand knock-off.
These fakes might look the same, but if they are made from cheap materials they will likely to porous and this makes them a breeding ground for nasties and bacteria. Yuck. You might also have trouble with the chargers or batteries which can be very dangerous. So, always shop on reputable sites, even if the price seems too good to ignore elsewhere!
Women looking to get their kicks solo will often reach for a rabbit vibrator. These versatile little pocket rockets are great for blended orgasms and it’s like you’re getting two-for-one. Don’t always reach for the absolute cheapest rabbit vibrator, as this will often be shorter and have just one speed for both the ears and the shaft. Instead, look for an entry-level model with a few more bells and whistles. For example, this Erotic Rabbit Vibrator features dual motors, vibrating internal pearls and a ribbed shaft for added pleasure. Not bad for less than £25!
Great value sex kits
If you’re looking for a fun kit to explore with your partner, then a sex kit might be a great way to fill up the sex toy chest without breaking the bank. This Dirty Dozen Sex Toy Kit includes a vibrator with numerous sleeves for different types of play in addition to a bullet with extra sleeved. You also get kegel balls and an adjustable cock ring. It should take you and your partner a while to make your way through this dirty dozen.
Porsche for the price of a Peugeot
The Fleshlight is well known in the sex toy world as the Porsche of male masturbators, but this doesn’t sound too budget-friendly. If you’re keen to try out these stamina training units for yourself, then the Quickshot Boost is a great low-budget choice. Rather than being enclosed at the end, this doughnut-shaped stroker is a lightweight version of the full thing. Not only will it amp up your solo sessions, but it is also a great accompaniment to a blowjob.
Anal beads on a shoestring budget
Once you’ve started building your sex toy collection, there’s no better addition to the toy box than anal beads. These tantalising little beads on a string are versatile and pack a pleasurable punch for their small size. You can pick up anal beads for as little as £3.99 if you want to give them a try, but we’d recommend scaling up to the Onyx Silicone Anal Beads for a fun ride.
If you and your partner are interested in trying bondage but don’t fancy spending a fortune on leather and latex that you might end up never using more than once, then this Amazing Bondage Sex Toy Kit could be the solution. It includes everything you need to try bondage once at a price that won’t make you weep if it never gets a second outing. Bondage isn’t for everyone, but everyone should try it at least once. With this kit, you’ll get black plastic handcuffs, a ball gag, an eye mask, a collar with central D-ring, a length of black rope, a pair of nipple clamps, and a whip. More than enough toys to get your imagination going!
