• What Your Favourite Sex Toy Says About You

    Lovehoney Student Sex Advice

    Whether you've got a single toy hidden away in your sock drawer or a gigantic collection that's taking over your whole house, everyone has that one favourite toy they always find themselves coming back to.

    You know the one. The old reliable that you never can quite replace.

    But have you ever wondered - what does your favourite sex toy say about you?

    From the classic dildo to the beasty butt plug, we've looked at seven different sex toys, and what we think your preference indicates about your personality.



    The Classic

    Just like your toy of choice, you are practical, efficient and great at getting straight to the point. After all, why over-complicate something you can easily handle elegantly and easily? Both you and your favourite toy excel at cutting through the faff and getting things done.

    That's not to say you're boring, though. Just as the classic vibe can pack one of the biggest punches, there can be a lot more to you than meets the eye.

    The Bullet

    Looks can be deceiving, and your bullet vibrator illustrates that better than anything! Sure, it's tiny and discreet, but when that baby gets going there's no missing it.

    In the same way, those who only know you in passing might think you're a little timid, or not very forthcoming, but your nearest and dearest know the truth - there's a wildness in you that has to be seen to be believed, a depth that only a lucky few get to really see.

    The Butt Plug

    What is life without adventure? Whether it's that new restaurant in town, a class for something you've never even heard of, a fictional world to spend days exploring in whatever new books, films or games come your way, you live for the new, whatever it might be.

    Some people are happy to go their whole lives never experimenting with the more 'out there' toys, and for them that's great, but just like how you love your plug, you need something a little more.

    The standard day-to-day routine will never quite be fulfilling for you, and that's a blessing and a curse, but you take life by the unmentionables and run with it, wherever it might take you.

    The Cock Ring

    It's rare to meet someone who gets just as much joy from helping others as themselves, but you're one of those few. The cock ring's most popular attribute is the mutual sensation it offers, stimulating both you and your partner in equal measure, and in a similar way it's knowing you've brightened someone else's day that gets you through yours.

    Be careful, though. Just as a cock ring doesn't live up to its full potential if only used on one person, so too should you take care to look after yourself and others in equal measure - if you don't do both, you'll do neither.

    The Magic Wand

    POWER! If there's one thing associated with these hefty super-toys it's pure, unadulterated power and you're no different. Once you get into your flow there's no stopping you.

    Just like the wand, you might sometimes be a bit much for some people, but when you click with someone they can be sure they've made a great friend for life.

    Whatever life throws your way you can just power on through, although you may sometimes take on more than your fair share of work and other people's problems.

    The Dildo

    Sometimes, the classics really are the best. You know how to knuckle down and just get things done, but when the situation calls for it you're more than capable of jumping in and taking charge.

    You can be a perfectionist, perhaps overly so at times, but when something needs doing you get it done and you do it as well as you can. Even when you look like you're at your most frantic, deep down you're cool and in control - it takes a lot to overwhelm you.

    Make sure you take time to enjoy yourself and relax, though, as sometimes you can be the last person to realise how tired you are.

    desire rabbit

    The Rabbit

    Ubiquitous, quintessential, the rabbit is often considered the definitive sex toy and for a very good reason.

    Some toys have power, some toys have precision, some toys fill your whole body with sensation and some make your clit sing with joy. The rabbit does it all. So too are you a great multitasker, and one for whom no job is too big to try.

    For you, life is about living. The unique experiences, the best of the best, for what is life if not something to be enjoyed? You take the same approach to your work. If something is going to be done by you it will be to your standards, and they are never lax.

    Sometimes you might be too hard on yourself, and take too much on at once, but you always recover whether by determination or the support of your friends.
