Pérez offered a handful of tips for sex toy beginners:
1. The price: Start simple. Why would you invest $80 or $100 on something that you don't even know will satisfy you? You can buy something great for $20, $40 or $50, so start off small until you know what you like. That said...
2. Know what you like: "I always ask my clients for what they want, because there are many types of vibrators: Clitoral, external stimulation or penetrating massagers (and these can be simple, double, G-spot stimulators. There are clients who know they want penetration, and others that prefer to focus on the clitoris. That's a good place to start." Pérez always recommends that you get the chance to touch anything you buy. "The texture and density are very apparent during penetration, so you may want something more flexible, softer and more manageable at the beginning."
3. Miracles don't exist: Finally, Pérez reminds us that there's no miracle product. "There is no surefire way to have an orgasm ... so focus on what excites you." And have fun!
