Most women find it easier to achieve orgasm through clitoral stimulation than any other kind, which is why the vibrator is one of the most popular sex toys. There are many different kinds of vibrator - butterfly, bullet, finger, G-spot, magic wand, remote control - but easily the most famous of the vibrators is the rabbit vibrator.
The rabbit vibrator is a toy that provides both internal and clitoral stimulation at the same time, making it unlike anything else. The Lovehoney Jessica Rabbit 2.0 Vibrator (£24.99) is the perfect first time vibrator because of its incredible ease of use, multispeed controls and waterproof cover - for fun in the bedroom and the bathroom.
However if all those functions scare you, start small with the Tracey Cox Supsersex Bullet Vibrator (£9.99). Single-speed and discreet, this mini vibrator is unintimidating and intuitive.

Dildos are perfect for those who like something a little more realistic about their sex toys. They are ideal if you need some sort of internal stimulation to orgasm and they can hit your G-spot perfectly when angled right.
The most popular kinds are the realistic and glass dildos - the realistic because of the simply irresistible feel of them and the glass for the unique sensations they create. However, each dildo has its purpose and the double ended and strap-on dildos are perfect for those who are feeling a little more adventurous.

The We-Vibe II Clitoral and G-Spot Vibrator (£64.99) is a revolutionary couple's vibrator that's specially designed to be worn by a woman during intercourse to stimulate the clitoris and the g-spot at the same time. A brilliant buy for adventurous couples.
Vibrating cock rings make erections stronger and longer lasting, with pleasurable vibrations for you both too. The Tracey Cox Supersex Silicone Love Ring (£7.99) is a great way to initiate yourself and your partner into the world of cock rings.

There are entire ranges of sex toys available to men with such variety that you're bound to find something that tickles your fancy. There's everything from great value sleeves and strokers to realistic vaginas, and from sex dolls to prostate toys.
An ideal starter would be the Pink Lady Fleshlight (£51.99). This sensuously soft sleeve has the life-like look and feel of a real vagina. It's easy to handle, even easier to clean and designed for discreet storage too.
If you want something on the lower end of the price scale so you can experiment and see if male masturbators are right for you, check out the disposable TENGA products. Pocket-friendly in both size and price, there are a multitude of TENGA products in different shapes and textures for you to enjoy.

Anal beads are probably the best introduction because of their ease of use, graduated sizing and unintimidating appearance. Pick up a set of Lovehoney's Beginner Anal Beads (£8.99) and you can start with the smallest bead then work your way up to taking them all.
Anal dildos provide greater sensations and are available in many different shapes and sizes, making them ideal for men, women and couples. Similarly, butt plugs give you that incredible feeling of fullness yet also give you the graduated shaping of anal beads too - the best of both worlds. Whichever anal toy you decide is best for you, use anal lube for easy insertion.
