Choosing a sex toy store online
Like a big kid in a sweet shop, buying sex toys online can be an exciting but overwhelming experience. There are lots of things to consider about who and where you buy from.
How long does it take for your order to arrive?
This depends on what you are ordering and who you are ordering with. If you are looking for a general item like a vibrator, dildo or strap-on then most stores will despatch same day and you can expect receipt in 2-5 working days. If you are looking at a bespoke piece of furniture for your BDSM play then it can take up to 4 weeks.
Where do you get the best range?
Again, it depends what you are looking for. We’ve detailed below the best shops online for different purposes from Love Honey that offers the best all round range to places like S(A)X Leather who specialize in bondage gear.
How do you get the best deal?
Most companies apply any suitable discounts at the checkout but occasionally (particularly if you are ordering a few hundred dollars worth, it could be worth contacting the company directly to see if they can do you a deal. Whilst ordering online is easy and discreet, nothing beats the actual advantage of speaking to a real life sales person when it comes to negotiating. This is particularly useful if you are buying a lot of things and you’ve seen some items cheaper elsewhere. In this instance, some companies run a price match service.
If you aren’t in a rush, do a quick search in another window for ‘discount codes’ for the site you are using before you hit the purchase button. Sometimes a coupon code might be available to give you free shipping or a small discount. Always worth a quick search.
Lastly, some sites have newsletters to sign up for which is worth doing as they will send you offers and let you know about promotions they are running.
Will the mailman know what you’ve been ordering?
Most companies who sell adult sex toys online in Australia fully understand the need for absolute discretion both in postage and package handling as well as billing. In our experience (unless stated) your order will arrive in plain packaging with a return address that uses non-distinguishing features.
