The decision to invest in an adult toy is a big step for most Christians, and price is usually a consideration when evaluating the options. For this reason, we've put together a quick guide for what you should spend on a new adult device. Here are some questions to ask:
- What is your spending budget? The thing with adult toys is that they can range from the ridiculously affordable to the unbelievably inexpensive, but as a general rule you will get what you pay for so it is really worth investing much more. Expect to pay between $20-$100 for a vibrator...usually the more expensive units have additional bells and whistles like multiple vibration patterns.
- What is your motivation for buying? Sex in marriage is an extremely holy and sacred experience that God intended to be fully enjoyable. But frequently, it is not. Maybe the husband hasn't learned to satisfy his wife's more complex sexual needs, or the wife is indifferent and cold throughout intercourse. If there are underlying problems, a sex toy may not be the only thing you need to look into, and perhaps spending money on couple's therapy would be worthwhile.
- How do you plan to use a sex toy to pleasure each other? Women usually appreciate their husbands when they treat them nicely. Dealing with a woman kindly doesn't necessarily mean that you are purchasing them costly presents, buying jewelry or taking expensive vacations. What a lady really wants is an attentive partner in the bedroom--someone who listens, communicates with transparency, and who looks after her needs. When pricing an adult toy, your budget should reflect a desire to bring the most benefit to your spouse...this may translate into lingerie, vibrators, penis rings, and other items that enhance the bedroom experience. Therefore, mutual pleasure, not cost, should not be the bottom line.
