What influences your toy choice?

What influences your toy choice?

Roz W Roz W
This occurred to me while looking at a pretty (though slightly strange) dildo called "Ocean Breeze." Does something like the name of a toy influence your opinion of it? I find I have pretty strong color preferences. What are some outside-factors that attract you to buy a toy? Multiple choice voting.

Color - I refuse to get realistic colored things, and I really dislike pink as well.

Material - I will never get anything that's not body safe/porous, like Jelly.

Reviews - to see if it's good or not. I want to know how strong and loud it is

Price - I don't have unlimited money.

Materials reviews and price. Usually with the price, I will save up but it has stopped me a couple of times.

My priorities are usually safety, function, ergonomics and appearance, in that order. Color usually isn't a huge deal as long as it's not a skin tone. Material relates to safety and function so it's probably my number one priority. Reviews help me determine all the other factors. I have some small level of brand loyalty so it's a factor but not a requirement. The name is almost no importance to me. If I don't like the name, I'll rename it if I really care. Price usually only determines whether I can buy it sooner or later unless it's something I feel is wildly overpriced for what it is. The site ranking doesn't matter much to me since that's mostly popularity and sometimes cheap toys end up in those lists cuz they're cheap so lots of people buy them.

I think reviews and brandname are the most important influences for me. There are a few brands that I trust, and a few that I definitely do not... just as there are a few reviewers that I trust, and a few that I definitely do not!

What DOESN'T influence my decision is the top whatever ranking, as it is often nonsense. In priority I would say it's material, reviews, manufacturer, price, and finally color.

Reviews, almost 100%, particularly the strength. I need 4 or 5 vrooms - I guess you could say I have a "clit of steel."

Material, size, and shape are the big three for me. After that comes the reviews (particularly on strength if it's a vibe), then price and color. Seeing it's from a company I favor can definitely sway me, as well.

Pretty much everthing influences my choice. But mostly the material, reviews, and price.

Color isn't a deciding factor, but it will make me hold off on a purchase until it becomes available.

This depends on what I am looking to get. If its something that is pricey, I will make sure to go through every avenue to make sure its really what I want, worth the mollah and can be used in numerous ways. If its something sorta cheap, and just one of those "Meh,lets give it a shot" kinda things then I am not as picky.

I look at a combination of things, but I would say the most important to me are the reviews. If it does not have many reviews, I will decide based on price if I want to take a chance on it or not. I do look at the material- I do have certain preferences, but I will not rule any toy out because it is made of something that is not my favorite. I just like to know in advance if it is something that requires a lot of extra effort to keep clean or not. I do not care so much about what the color is. Certain colors are a plus, but there isn't any one color that I stay away from. I really do not care at all about the name or site rank. And as far as the manufacturers go, I do have my favorites.

I want to say all of the above for us as well, but there is a definite ranking to the criteria. First is material; if it isn't safe and can't be sterilized, the other factors don't matter. Next are reviews, then color, and so forth.

Actually, all the choices have factored into purchases at one time or another.

SIZE is number 1. I have to be able to use it first and foremost.

Materials- I don't buy below a certain safety level.

Reviews- If people I know that have similar preferences that I do say that it's not strong enough for them or too buzzy for them then I know it would be the same for me.

Materials is the big one for me. I don't even look at toys that don't meet my materials standards.

Manufacturer is big, too. I tend to stay away from manufacturers I don't trust to provide accurate material information.

Reviews, of course, are crucial. I would have no damn idea what to buy if it weren't for reviews.

First, it must be a body safe material from a quality manufacturer. Second I look at size and shape to see if it is something that would be suitable for our needs. Then I read reviews to help narrow down my choices and make my purchase decisions.

For the most part it has to be silicone, then it has to be a shape which looks stimulating, and lastly a nice colour will help sway me.

Purpose, quality, reviews, price. They all play a part. Colors not so much for me.

Material is the most important for us. It has to be non-porous. Then we would look for a reputable manufacturer.
