There’s that pretty display case in your local boutique sex toy store filled with frilly feathery minxy things and bean-shaped flowery gadgets. Gorgeous, aren’t they?
Locked and lighted and reserved for customers with discerning tastes and juicy fat wallets—these are the high-end sex toys. The toys that cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars. Toys that rock stars and trust fund babies flock to.
The helpful sales person at the sex toy store will likely try to steer you toward those pricey toys in the display case. After all, the bigger the sale, the bigger their commission.
But wait! In this economy who can afford a freaking gold-plated sex toy? You aren’t a trust fund baby or a rock star. Until you start pulling six figures a year, these insider’s tips will help you shop smarter, save cash, and buy a sex toy that is just as nice as those luxury models.
Now let’s say you’re eyeing one of those dainty bean-shaped toys with all those frou-frou flowers but there’s no way you can afford it. Just walk over to the Grrl Toyz display and find the Discreet Curved Vibe.
Compact for travel with a curved design that hugs the body, the Discreet Curved Vibe is slightly larger and therefore easier to handle than the frou-frou bean shaped vibes—and it costs about $50 less than even the most basic beanie model.
Do you have a fun-loving affinity for silicone toys shaped like animals? If dolphins turn you on, then get a unique and affordable one!
The Climax Silicone Splash Dolphin is made from 100% platinum cured silicone. It has a curved tail that you can use as a handle, or the included Silky-Smooth love bullet can be inserted to make Flipper flip-out and vibrate. Hygienic, safe, and beautiful, this dolphin is waterproof and retails in the mid-thirty dollar range.
What if you are looking for a fancy G-Spot vibe, but you don’t have a C-Note to spend? The popular Slimline G is an economical option for you.
Available in a variety of colors and sizes, the Slimline G is perfectly angled for G-Spot hunting and can also be used for external stimulation. Ideal for playing alone or with a partner, the simple design is as brilliant as it is practical. It is made of hard plastic with no controversial phthalates and retails for around $30.00.
If you can’t fork out the dough for the sparkly glass dildo illuminated in the display case like the Hope Diamond—and priced like it, too—then indulge with the CyberGlass Pink Indulgence from Adam and Eve Signature Toys.
CyberGlass is hand-blown, fracture-resistant, and can be heated or cooled to a desired temperature. The CyberGlass Pink Indulgence has a trendy color, is angled for G-Spots, and even includes a pretty storage bag. It looks just as good as its pricy counterparts when you take it out of the packaging—and costs a third of what they do, too!
Furry, fuzzy, fluffy, frilly toys can capture your attention in the blink of an eye. But if you ain’t got the dough for the bling, then the Taboo Tease is what you can swing!
This bejeweled vibe might not sparkle with Swarovski crystals, but it does gleam with fashionable rhinestones and frill with a super soft tickler attached to the base. The shimmering plastic vibe is both attractive and phthalate-free. Priced at pennies on the dollar compared to that frilly pinky minxy thingy, the Taboo Tease is sure to please your pocket book, too.
And if you’re sad because your toy doesn’t come with a fancy stand, please remember that smart people store their sex toys in drawers or satin bags for privacy and cleanliness. Really, who puts their sex toy on display to attract dust and dirt? Ewww…
There are many other frugal options when shopping for sex toys. Before you even walk into the store have an idea of the type of toy you are looking for. Decide in advance what functions are most important and search them out. Do your comparison shopping and let Topco Sales provide you with cost-conscious sex toys until you get that fifty-thousand dollar a year raise!
