I usually purchase my own. Know what I want and simply get it. Easier to just tell hubby how much I put on the credit card lol

A gift would be just as nice though (my sister is prone to buying gags that turned out as great toys) and it would be kinda kinky sexy if from hubby but I highly doubt he'd buy any without me there.

I like to self purchase with some guidance from the wife, since the last time I purchased sex toys without her she was not cool with what I got. However, it would be very cool if my wife purchased something as a surprise, especially if it was a new kind of toy for us.

I don't know anyone that would buy me one so I buy for myself and the wife, when she wants something.

I don't want to come off like a control freak or something, but I definitely want to pick out my own. I guess you could say I'm picky, because I like to do a lot of research, read a lot of reviews, and mull it over for quite a while, especially because most of my toys are pretty pricey! I can see why it could be very sexy to get a surprise toy from my hubby, but I can't say for sure if the sexiness aspect would overtake my thoughts about how much it cost or if I could have found anything better. Yeah, I guess I actually am a bit controlling when it comes to my toys lol

Haha I do the same thing, so I guess I'm controlling when it comes to my toys as well.

I would probably rather buy my toys myself, but the first toy I got was a gift and I'm not opposed to gifts. LOL

I wouldn't mind getting one as a gift but I'm probably more likely to get exactly what I want if I purchase it myself.

As fun as sex toys are to receive as gifts, I prefer to buy my own because I know what I like.

That is, unless ANYONE wants to buy me Eleven. That is one I would not turn down.

Although, if it was something off my wishlist, I wouldn't mind

I'm not in anyway opposed to gifts. The people who would think to buy me a toy would be fairly familiar with other things I like, but I like shopping for them myself a lot more.

I would rather purchase my own. If someone gave me one then I would feel slightly obligated to use it even if I ended up hating it.

Getting as a gift would be nice but my bf can't get me anything since his mother watches his spending like a hawk, so I just buy my own (and his).

I mostly prefer to buy my own because I like doing the research first but a toy as a gift is always nice too. My ex boyfriend gave me a couple toys as gifts and They weren't anything that I would have bought for myself but I loved them! It allowed me to try something that I normally wouldn't.

I wouldn't mind a gift, but it'd be hard to get someone to know exactly what I wanted. However, it's definitely the thought that counts, so if my boyfriend bought me lingerie or something like that, it'd be a really nice touch.

I said buy my own but my b/f travels and will pick up something I have mentioned or will look around for some toy that seems interesting. I kid him about his visits to Babeland in Seattle as he travels to Seattle frequently.

Where is the infamous 'Other'. My wife has never purchased a toy for her or me, they have all been gifts from me.

I have actually never bought a toy specifically for myself - but I do use some of my wife's older smaller toys.

I would love to get a gift - it would indicate an active involvement in the process instead of the current passive-acceptance role she plays.

A gift is nice, but I like to really research what I am getting. EF reviews and ratings play a key role.

Looks like people prefer to buy their own toys

I have received a toy as a gift but mostly I buy my own - that way I get exactly what I want ... unless a partner knew what types I went for.

Never received one as a gift, though I imagine my husband and I will be getting some for each other from time to time. I enjoy picking them out with him myself, because I have a good idea of what I like.

Receiving them as a surprise gift can be nice. But I'm fairly picky when it comes to toys.

I think the only problem I would have in letting someone buy a toy for me is that it may not be what I would like. I prefer, when I have the money, to buy my own

the gift makes it a surprise and helps to try new things. who knows what they will get. so it gets you out of your comfort zone but i also like to purchase my own

I've bought all of my own so far, but I wouldn't mind getting one as a gift so long as it was something the giver knew I wanted or it was off a wish list.

I'd love to get a toy as a gift. My SO knows what I like, he even knows which specific toys I'm saving up to get. But on our college student budget it's very unlikely I'll get gifted toys...
