For penis sleeves: the Si-X N, Hotmilk, or Peach Pai (all from Toys Heart). Affordable, durable, and very easy to clean.

I would go with the Silver Impulse. It's a good size for beginners, not expensive, and well made. Plus, it's powerful.

OK. So I have a few recommendations : )

For newbies, I think they should take it easy, dive in slowly. Start in the kiddie pool. Especially if this is their first time - don't want them to be scared! lol

Clitoral hummer waterproof clitoral vibrator As their first vibrator. Its not intimidating looking, and is pretty affordable. Plus its waterproof, so they can try it in the shower, where they are going to have more privacy. And when I was a newbie, I liked the idea of quick and easy clean up. LOL

Bgood – traditional vibrator would make an excellent first vibrator as well. Can be used against the clitoris, or inserted. Either way, this is pretty much the "standard" in my opinion for first timers. This is what I got my first time : )

Seduction Holiday edition – traditional vibrator is another good first time selection. It offers a bit more than the traditional vibe, and its waterproof.

For a first dildo - Classic dong – dildo is a great buy. Its realistic, and comes in 2 great colors. This was my first dildo. It was so much fun lol.

For a first time anal user, they should try something simple and basic like the Butt hungry – butt plug. Its affordable, slim, and perfect for the newbie interested in anal.

The best thing about all of these toys, they are all affordable. All of these products are under $30. In fact the price range is $9.99 - $25.99.

Definitely Ella by LELO is the best beginner g-spot dildo. Mia by LELO is an affordable rechargable vibrator that would be perfect for any gal.

I wrote an article about "Beginner" toys. We need to remember that not all "Newbies" to sex toys are new to sex. My second bought sex toys, purchased only a few months after my husband first gifted me with a cheap Sil-A-Gel vibrator, that I wasn't fond of was a Wahl and the Fun Factory Boss Lady with approx 5 inch circumference shaft! I had been having sex for decades, and needed power, quality and girth.

Here's my article. It addresses a lot of issues with Newcomers to sex toy play.

I would recommend the Harmonia. It is $50 but it is well worth it for material safety and versatility. It isn't phallic and has 8 vibe settings. It is waterproof, runs on two AAA batteries, has a g spot bulge that isn't intimidating, and it is super flexible in the middle of the shaft, so you can bend it up to hit the clit too.

For some one who doesn't know where the g spot is, I recommend the Bent Graduate or the Amethyst. I like the Reflections Serenity as well.

I'm not big on vibes, but you can't go wrong with a cordless waterproof bullet with strong vibes. I like the Iconic bullet, but it does eat batteries. I have heard great things about the High Intensity bullets, though I haven't been able to get one yet. I also have the Chandra, which is great and rechargeable, but it isn't water proof.

Maximus lube! I remember when I didn't know the importance of lube period, let a lone GOOD lube. I used to think I stayed wet enough that I didn't need it, but would wonder why my lady bits were a little irritated after playing with my silicone or rubber toys. Also, I never understood spending any more for lube than buying Astroglide at the drug store. Boy was I wrong! I tried Maximus and haven't looked back since. I actually have been meaning to try other lubes, but it is hard to justify the purchase when I have lube that does the job so well.

the first toy that I have really enjoyed has been my ultimate massager pocket rocket. I would recommend a good quality pocket rocket that either has functions or a dial base because one speed will be hit or miss as to whether you enjoy it. Insertable toys should be left up to the person using them, it really depends on their preferences.

Tantus Silk Small or the Happy Valley Pleasure Plug #1 or #2 were all great when I was re-learning to enjoy anal sex. They're all affordable and nice and small, not to mention easy to care for. Great newbie butt toys!

One of my favorite beginner toys is the Sugar Spoon. I still have mine from years and years ago and I still love it.

I would add the Tantus Ripple to the list of good beginner butt toys seeing as it increases in the size of the ripples along the shaft.
For beginner glass I can recommend the Amazing Swirls, it is double ended with some texture on one end and a smooth bulb at the other.
To the list of vibes, I'd add the EF branded bullet. It is very inexpensive for the amount of vrooms it gives, and because it has a dial control, it's more flexible for both those who need a lot of vibration and those who don't.
Also, the Blueberry Bliss is a great waterproof, traditional vibe with a fair amount of vroom for your buck.
Each under $27, because as a beginner to toys, sometimes you need to experiment to find what works.

RO-120mm Bullet

This was my first, and I literally cried after I used it. GOOD tears. I feel like I should qualify that, you know, just in case someone thought it did horrible things.

I think the strap-on vibes by Doc Johnson are absolutely stunning beginner toys! Seriously, there's nothing like them. I say Doc Johnson because I've had terrible experiences with the other brands. I've been using the Doc Johnson strap on sting ray vibe for ages and will ALWAYS keep one of those on hand! They're easy and they aren't at all intimidating, beginners tend to get intimidated easily by certain products I still do! But that strap on clit vibe by Doc Johnson is just one unbelievable item! I couldn't do without it! I think it's also very appealing to beginners and even advanced users because they're pretty and cute! They also don't have big, scary things that go inside or hard materials.

I'll be raving about that one when I'm 60 years old!

My first toy almost 20 years ago was the classic Beaver. I wore my first one out after about five years and had to buy another one. I still use it today even though I've become more adventurous lately. It might not suit everyone, and it is rather expensive, but it was the perfect first toy for me.

You can read my explanation of why it is a great first toy in my review.

Now I may be a bit crazy for recommending this one, but I think that Rainbow Heart makes a great first toy for someone who is new to toys, but not new to intense sexual stimulation.

It was my first toy and I love it to pieces. This toy finally made me realize why my husband masturbates so much! I mean, I have always loved sex, but never really got masturbation. Turns out I just needed help!

Why I think Rainbow Heart is great for beginners who prefer intense stimulation is because for one, it looks about as intimidating as Rainbow Bright and two glass is so easy to clean and incredibly safe. Besides the nubs feel great on your clitoris and internally.

Then again, I might just be crazy and weird.
