A Sex Toy Industry Expert Addresses Common Sex Toy Complaints

When you have a sex toy that you have been enjoying, it is so disappointing when you are in the mood to use it, and guess what, it no longer turns on! Or, have you had the experience of purchasing a sex toy, wait about a week or so for it to arrive, and it is defective? There are also situations when vibrators that do work just won’t turn off! You have to actually remove the batteries for it to shut down! Then, there are the products that are too weak, too loud, or just plain uncomfortable.In this article, I am going to address some of the complaints that sex toy consumers have mentioned. Do not be discouraged if you did not have a good sex toy experience. With numerous adult toys available, the chances of disappointment and/or frustration is quite possible. However, here are some tips that can help you during your purchase which may lessen your disappointment and turn you into a sex toy believer!

Complaint #1 – This vibrator is not powerful enough!

Tip: Before you purchase a vibrator, read through customer reviews to see what they say about it. Most reputable web sites will post both the negative and positive reviews for the product. In addition, find a web site that has the power levels measured for each of the vibrators. If you do not have a material preference, try out the vibrators that are made of hard ABS plastic. The vibrations are more intense on these types of vibrators because the vibrations are not being absorbed into a softer material. For example, the Hot and Smooth vibrator is a mult-speed powerful vibrator and is made of hard plastic.

Complaint #2 – The vibrator arrived defective from the retailer.

Tip: Before you get upset, make sure your batteries are inserted properly into the battery pack. This may seem like common sense, but some of the vibrator’s housing are not always clear on what end the positive side should be and vise versa. If applicable, screw the base on tight if the batteries are inserted into the base. If the product will still not turn on, then the vibrator is defective.

Make sure you read the company’s return policy before making a purchase. Many times I have seen complaints about customers who wanted full refunds for defective products when the company’s policy was to give store credits. It is very important to be knowledgeable about the return policy in case the product arrives defective or if you are not happy with the product. Most companies will send a replacement of a defective product at no charge. However, be aware of the time frame in which products can be returned or defective products can be replaced.

Complaint #3 – This sex toy is way too large for me.

Tip: A product can look smaller in the picture than in real life, which can be a disadvantage to purchasing online. It is important to read the measurements for the product. Most web sites will have the length and width of the product. In addition, there are web sites that offer a measuring chart to have a more accurate account of how big the product is.

Complaint #4 – This vibrator will not stop buzzing!

Tip: Some of the smaller products like some of the bullets may have a tendency to not turn off. Users have stated that they had to remove the battery completely in order for the product to turn off. Most of the time, these types of vibrators are operated by watch size batteries. Purchase a vibrator that is operated by at least triple A sized batteries. Plus, I also find that the products that are operated with at least triple A sized batteries tend to last longer, and are more powerful.

Complaint #5 – My sex toy is giving me an allergic reaction or irritating to my skin.

Tip: Stop using this product immediately. If you are having an allergic reaction, you may be allergic to latex. Use a product that is made of glass, metal, hard plastic, or silicone. Those types of sex toy materials are perfect for users who are allergic to latex. If you are using a condom with your sex toy, make sure that the condom is latex free such as Durex Avanti Bare of LifeStyles Skyn.
