The first sex toy I ever bought myself was a hard plastic vibrator ordered from Good Vibrations about 13 years or so ago. I don't know what brand it is and it doesn't work anymore, but I still have it.
I don't recall where my first one came from. I am really happy with their reflections hope, a glass vib. Recently I have purchased several of Doc Johnson products and I'm really happy with them. The i-ride rocks!!!!!
No, mine was a hard plastic g-spot vibe that I bought in a local sex toy shop. I think it was made by Penthouse or Hustler. It wasn't anything great but it did the job and got my excited about sex toys!
