Once upon a time, in a dark and scary time in our history, there weren’t many choices in sex toys. To get our rocks off, we had to resort to slinking into some neon-dazed sex shop to buy something more for the amusement than its function. Thankfully, those days are long gone, and we’ve got choices up the wazoo. Now there are tons of pleasure enhancing devices that have amazing form and function that can also be customized for any adventure.
But as far as our sex toy purchases go, the decision is not always about the price, or even battery versus USB—it has more to do with our personality type. That’s right, no matter if you’re detail oriented, a social activist, a pleasure delayer, a recycler, or just plain quick-n-dirty, the toy you decide on has a lot to do with how you’re sexually wired. To find out your sex toy type, it’s time to drag them out of the closet and give them a closer look.
For you, it’s all about the art of seductive pleasure. Since you’re highly visual, stimuli like french lingerie, feminist porn and a swanky hotel suite help to satisfy your romantic craving. You do err on the promiscuous side, and have a deep-seating desire for danger.
You prefer sex at a pre-determined time (preferably 5 minutes following The Bachelor). You see sex as a systematic part of being healthy and happy. While you do enjoy doing the nasty, you’re not to keen on trying anything too crazy. Hence a toy with no operating system or batteries. Because your health matters the most, you’re sometimes a quality snob and really look forward to a world filled with less toxins and more love.
Not one to dilly-dally, you’re direct about what you want, which is great. You’re also athletic, interactive, engaged—all objectively good things when it comes experiencing high intensity orgasms. Just remember that unlike sports, sexual pleasure can have an emotional component to it which sometimes requires you to slow down.
You like to win at sex. First off, you have an extroverted sense paired with introverted passion, which basically means you ooze sexuality. Secondly, you place high emphasis on getting greater satisfaction while being incredibly open-minded to new sensations. Simply put, you’re amazing in bed and have an incredible sense of direction.
You have a hard time getting out of your head in bed. You need to feel a high level of comfort before you’re able to climax. That being said, once you come out of your shell, you do get freaky by talking dirty to yourself. You like to experiment and enjoy exposing yourself to a new ways of doing things. Although you tend go through long periods of celibacy, the intense sensations following are well worth it.
You approach self-gratification the way you approach everything else – loudly, proudly and as a prime opportunity to flex your muscles. You take a great deal of enjoyment in having an orgasm but don’t focus much on the connection. Can you last for a long time? Yes. But you prefer intensity over proprietary and like to do things over again and again.
You see sex as a challenge. (Okay you see everything as a challenge). You want to constantly improve sexually and are consistently finding new ways to make the experience more intensely pleasurable for both yourself and your partner. The flip side of this highly mental game is that you can occasionally let loose during sex. You enjoy the rare opportunity to temporarily detach from your over-active mind, and let your physical impulses take over.
Like most anal pleasure types, you can be described as borderline sapiosexual. You don’t just want to fuck—you want to delve in deeper and experience it all. Extremely intelligent, lustful and downright kinky, you’re turned on by the obscure and strange. The stranger and more perverted the fantasy, the better. You’re the reason why kink websites exist.
If someone’s looking for a dominant, style lover—then you’re the one to call. You’re imaginative and explorative in the bedroom, remaining highly receptive to your partner’s desires. Nothing pleases you more than knowing that your partner went on a unique, relatively kinky sexual journey – and that it was you who led them there fearlessly.
You put the love in lovemaking. Potential partners need to know that for you, sex is never strictly a physical affair. Getting it on is a matter of connecting emotionally with whomever you’re sleeping with, which is why you’re so dynamite. The only thing you love more than romantic intimacy is reflecting on said intimacy once it’s over. You want a partner who’s lovin’ makes you feel something.
Solo-sex for you is not as exciting as being with your partner. That being said, you’re a warm and enthusiastic lover who enjoys exploring all facets of their sexuality. Being connected both physically and emotionally is what makes you extra special. You like to share the wealth in whatever strange new way you can think of.
