I have to say that some of the best toys I've gotten have been less expensive by far than some of the toys I've had the worst experience with. I suppose I would rather go by personal experience and company reputation than by price as a indicator of quality. On the whole, though, we try to find the "more expensive toys" (i.e. rabbits) for under $50.
I said $20 mostly because I don't really buy a lot of *toys*. And I mean honestly, for a 4 inch wide belt that would take me half an hour to sew myself, I wouldn't pay much more than that. So I'm basing things off of my experience with lube and lingerie (Though, I typically buy lingerie local because I'm so little I like the piece of mind that something will be similar size.) For toys, I suppose it'd be more like $30-$40 depending on what it is, but since I don't like vibrators and don't get much out of dildos I don't really spend much on toys myself. So, I'm biased.
My vote went for under $40.00.
Maybe it's because I have full-time employment and am no longer a student, or maybe it's because I'm a fan of the safest materials which often cost a bit more.
This is referring generally to a non-mechanized insertable, though.
Just out of curiosity, what do you personally consider to be "inexpensive" when it comes to sex toys? Now I know this can vary depending on the type of product (an inexpensive vibrator is not the same price as an inexpensive bottle or lube)

Now I know this can vary depending on the type of product (an inexpensive vibrator is not the same price as an inexpensive bottle or lube) but I would like to get a general idea of everyone's opinions as I continue to add products to my store, Frugal Fantasys.
Currently, I'm using a guideline of $30-$40 or less.
Also, to specify: <$30 includes everything below it in price range
Usually it depends more on the product. If it is something I really love and has a high enough safety rating, I'm more likely to buy it if it is over my $20 limit but, unless that's the situation, the first stage in my process of elimination is price. Anything below $20 (or if I can make it below $20 with discounts) is game, then safety rating, size, etc.
I think anything under $20 is inexpensive. Personally, I've never gone above $50 for a toy. There are a few I've been interested in that are $100+ but I just can't justify the cost. The $50 had me sweating as it was.
20 seems like a good number for me, cause 20 is usually my limit in buying a piece of clothing item. And I usually use clothing prices to gauge the price of everything else. I don't know why. Except for electronics.
