Is Luxury Worth the Money?

Is Luxury Worth the Money?

Lena Eden Lena Eden
With so many sex toys on the market, sometimes it’s hard to choose one. With their great variety of functions, vibration modes and textures, the toys get in a real competition.



The fact is that there can be 2 similar looking dildos or vibes with similar function(!), and the only difference between them is the price.

So, the question here is how often do you prefer the more expensive toys to the cheaper ones? Why? Are the luxury toys really worth the money we spend on them?

I've had both good and bad with luxury toys over the years. I try to do my research on all similar options and go based on what is best for me. Material, power, girth are all things I look into before price.

That question is a double edged sword. Working for an ecommerce importer I have learned not to look at price but the material quality of the product and personal preference. This ecommerce importer had 4 product lines priced at different price points but were the exact same product with a different name on the box. The customer perfered the higher priced products as the higher price tag made them think the product was higher quality.

Good question. Some of prices of expensive toys can cost 3 times that of a similar one. So if broke or wore out just purchased another.

Some higher price dildos certainly feel better and worth the price tag at first. After playing with the lessor priced one, they do grow on you.

For example the BBC Caesar was difficult to use and felt too much texture at first. Now we crave it. Although similar to the Outlaw (mighty, mighty) it being shorter was easier to take. The fullness filling was fantastic !

Same with the EF Mega. A little too stiff at first but now it fantastic. Get after lots of usage it soften up some.

Electronic toys, now that's a little different. Most lower priced ones don't have the strength/intensity controls. Just high power. However if that's what one wants it def a money saver. Look at Unity's price tag vs We vibe.

This is my experience as well - price does not tell the whole story, but quality is vital.

There is no doubt in my mind that BD and Vixskin dildos are superior to the off-brand varieties that I have tried. Then there's the trust factor, I know what to expect from name brands in terms of product quality and customer service - should a problem arise.

On the other hand, clitoral wand vibrators are pretty much generic at this point and I have purchased products in the $30 range that are better than $100 - even $150 products from the big names.

As MR. Smooches points out below - retailers are very sophisticated these days and use their access to 'big data' to segregate the premium buyers from the bargain shoppers. It is truly a world of buyer beware.

There is also a conflict between rewarding the company that has invested in the design and the research to come up with a great product - vs. the company that simply copies it and capitalizes on the creativity of others.

Like anyone else, I like a good deal - but do draw the line at blatant knock-offs.

I can say, based on my own experience there's certainly a difference between cheaply made toys and the luxury ones. The luxury ones have better quality, more interesting functions that can enhance your sensations and leave you super satisfied in the end.
