As soon as I moved out of my parents house.
Once on my own I became mor comfortible with the idea of toys. For a long time I viewed that as just for women but now I'm open about mine. Someone has to normalize them for men. I began all my friends that once they try a pocket pussy, they will never use their hand again. And there's no shame in reducing your risk of carpal tunnel.
I had just turned 19, and a friend was hosting a pleasure party, and I was so out of my comfort zone! I had no idea half of what everyone was talking about, but I thought I should get a toy and start experimenting. I bought a cheap little vibrator, and it was so buzzy that it just tickled! I still have it, though. I should try it out again sometime and see if it's any better for me now that I've got more experience under my belt!
I am interested in finding out how old people were when they got their first toy.
I was 21 when I got my first vibrator, and have been slowly building a collections since. It's still rather small, since I'm only 22, therefore have only been collecting for less than a year, but I'll base my collection more on the quality of my vibrators, not the quantity. Especially since I'm REALLY picky about my vibrators. So I won't just collect them willy nilly.
