    I ordered my first vibrator and dildo just over 2 weeks ago at the ripe old age of 26. I had been thinking about it for a while but didn't really know what all the fuss was about.

    Wow, what have I been missing out on?! I wanted to get some time to check them out first before I get my boyfriend involved with them so I have been 'making use' of them frequently since I got them. Definately feel like I have been missing out and should have got a toy before and I have been left behind!. When did others start using toys?

    Bought my first toy in February last year at the age of 34 having never had a partner.

    in that reasonably short time i’ve progressed from not having even touched myself to regularly enjoying anal toys of all types and exploring so solo bondage and pain play.

    There are still lots of things I would like to explore but can’t without a partner but it’s fair to say Lovehoney changed my life.

    First toy was with my Ex, probably 15 years ago but has was an ass and I hated anything to do with Sex because of him. Now that I have moved on and more comfartable within myself, purchased some toys about 8 years ago and haven't looked back! Had a GF who worked in a Sex Shop so would get stuff through her but have now found LH and feel very at home.

    My OH is on the extremely small side so having toys gets us both to our happy places.

    I got my first vibrator when I was pretty young after I got invited to a toy party by a friend and her older sister. I already knew what they were and had seen various items in my mums room before but it was quite embarassing even with some encouragement to order something.

    I was using toys before I had sex with my first boyfriend very happy I started them.

    I got my first one last week, already deciding what I will purchase for the second one.
    Tried the first one on Friday, a bit more practice needed soon. I find it quite exciting looking at the site at all the products available.

    First toy I used was when I was **edited by moderator - life starts at 18 here*   and embarrassingly was my older sisters I’d found by accident. Was 25yrs ago when toys where taboo for males. So glad times are changing

    Hey, this is a good thread idea but is open to rule breaking so I just want to put a polite reminder that at Lovehoney, sex life starts at 18 :)

    A bullet was my first toy (and only one for a while) that I had but didn't use, got that at 18. Then I started my collection in my early 20s, still wasn't really aware of what "did it" for me toy wise. Over the last couple of years my collection has grown quite a bit and I use toys more than ever now, mid 20s.

    I got me and my wife our first sex toys together when we were around the 18 years of age mark. In all honesty she was at the beginning terrified of It and considered it dirty and not in a good way either.

    But after a little foreplay and time she grew to love it. Shortly after we made similar purchases together and now have a varied collection of both male and female toys. Mine being a fleshlight, hers being rabbits. We regaurly use them with eachother, as well as alone.

    I had a Rocks Off bullet just before I started working at Lovehoney... so I think I was 19/20

    I was well into my twenties before I got my first vibrator and then there was a massive gap of no further toy buying till I discovered Lovehoney about 4 years ago !

    Can't remember but think in my late 20 while working for GEC Marconi at Waterloo Street. My 1st 8 inches black vibrating dildo at £120 bought from a store along Seaport. Toys were not so unimpressively made and expensive then. This skinny and long dildo has long retired but I kept it as part of my collections.

    I bought our first sex toy back in about 1983 when I was nineteen and my girlfriend was 18. It was back in the days of having to order things via the mail from adverts in porn mags. It was a very simple gold tipped vibrator. Since then and the advent of the internet we have bought loads of vibrators, dildos, strap ons, cock rings and so on. Hurrah for the internet. The girlfriend is now my wife.

    I purchased my first toy when I was about 17 years ago! I was so nervous, there was so much choice and products on the market I didn’t know where to start! Luckily, there was a rather helpful and understanding member of staff on hand in the store to help me decide and I soon lost the embarrassment feeling! I have never looked back since! I love it and have recently introduced my partner to include this during our ‘time’ and we rather enjoy it!

    When I was 20, so 17 years ago. Was ordered from a sex toy party, a rubber, pink, glittery vibe. Did absolutely nothing for me other than irritate my vagina. Had no idea that rubber toys could be toxic until I became I regular poster on these forums.

    R, very early on, first was a non-shaped ribbed rubber vibrator, first of a collection that has grown over the years until it now completely fills a bedside drawer, everything from mains-powered to minute.

    G, started using cock-rings when married to his ex, and when we met R persuaded him to try anal toys. Now has a fleshlight and wishes he'd something like that when discovering the joys of sex!

    We very bravely went into a really seedy, back street sex shop when we were first married and bought an old school very rattly plastic vibrator ! Then nothing until I joined Lovehoney.

    Lovehoney has definately changed our lives, I now have two drawers full of his and hers toys.

    I think I first bought a rabbit for an ex girlfriend when I was 20 as she wanted to experiment. I bought my anal you for myself when I was about 32

    I reckon I was about 34, but the toys were for me and hubby to share and use together. For solo playing and masturbation, it was about 1 year ago. I wish I had started mych earlier because I could have been much happier with myself.
