The Top 5 Reasons
Cheap Sex Toys
Are a Waste of Money and Time

This post was last updated on November 23, 2020 at 3:54 pm.

Ugh! We've all been there and have owned one of those cheap sex toys that we either bought on a whim, bought when drunk or was given to us as a gag gift.

And what has happened to those inexpensive sex toys? They have either ended up in the trash because they stopped working after the first use or are in the back of your underwear drawer. Even worse, they might have caused irritation to your skin.


Cheap sex toys are not worth your time and money. Invest in yourself and prioritize your pleasure. Spend a lit bit more money and get a high-quality premium product.

Top 5 Reasons Cheap Sex Toys Are A Waste of Money and Time:

1. Cheap Sex Toys Have Poor Quality

Have you ever experienced a toy that breaks while in use or doesn't work straight out of the plastic (let's face it: a cheap sex toy does not come in a box)? If you are lucky enough to get it working, these toys can also have a hard time holding their charge or overheat very easily. After 1-3 times, cheap sex toys stop working.

Say goodbye to your hard-earned money! You just wasted it and threw it in the trash.

2. Cheap Sex Toys Are Noisey

What? What did you say? I can't hear you over that VERY loud cheap vibrator. Are you really serious when you say that there isn't a freight train running through your bedroom? It sure sounds like it!

3. Cheap Sex Toy Are Made with Cheap Materials

Have you ever experienced an allergic reaction to an adult toy? Have you ever witnessed the material melting or changing color? That can happen with cheap toys thanks to all of the chemicals and fillers that are used to make them so inexpensive. This is in addition to the fact that certain cheaper plastics are very hard and don't feel very pleasurable.

Also very important is that cheap sex toys are very hard to clean. They are usually porous, which means that bacteria can survive and stay in the sex toy. YUCK!

4. Cheap Sex Toys Look Cheap

We know of one customer who ordered a toy online and when she opened up the box, she was so disgusted, she threw it out! Yes, it could have been buyer's remorse, but it was more about the fact that it looked ok online, but in person, it looked gross and disgusting.

Also, cheap toys are uncomfortable to hold and are not ergonomic at all. How much thought and design goes into these products?

Finally, have you noticed that cheap sex toys all look the same? Why? Because they come from the same factory production line. All they do to differentiate cheap sex toys is to change the packaging and maybe add a tweak here or there. In the end, it's the same exact cheap toy!

5. Cheap Sex Toys Have Outdated Technology

Yes. Yes! Yeess!! Yeeesss!!! NOOOOOO!! The batteries just died. It's equivalent to letting air out of a balloon. We hate when that happens. Would you ever use a battery in your cell phone? Why use batteries when you can recharge your toy? Also, would you ever get up from the couch to change the channel? (Unless you can't find the remote!) Do any cheap sex toys come with a wireless remote control? We don't think so!

High-Quality Premium Luxury Sex Toy Basics . . .

What Are High-Quality Premium Luxury Sex Toys?

Above are the 5 reasons why you should NOT buy cheap sex toys. So, what should you buy? High-quality premium luxury sex toys!

Luxury Sex Toys Offer:

Better performance

The best sex toys have stronger, quieter motors that lead to more stimulation and stronger orgasms. These motors also have multiple speeds and settings, offering a wider variety during play time. The motors of high-quality sex toys are stronger and quieter and are built to last longer.

Most luxury sex toys have many benefits that include: being waterproof; remote-controlled, either by a standard wireless remote or your smartphone;  have at least a one-year warranty.

Better materials

High-quality premium luxury sex toys are made with the finest materials available, such as 100% medical-grade silicone,  medical-grade plastic, glass, and medical-grade stainless steel. High-quality silicone is incredibly soft and never rubbery. It will not smell (like a new shower curtain), it is not porous, and it is easy to clean.

No batteries required

Generally, most luxury sex toys now use rechargeable batteries. It is eco-friendly and cheaper than batteries in the long run. Plus, it is much easier to clean (and store your premium sex toys).

Design and research matters

Many high-quality luxury sex toys are so discreet and beautiful that you could leave them in full sight and no one would guess what they were.

Premium sex toy manufacturers spend a lot of time and money on research and development. Their products do not come off the same production line simply with different labels or a slight change as other cheaps toys.

Final Thoughts . . .

Although Pulp Fiction and the Matrix are cult hits and still popular today, that doesn't mean that special effects and cinematography hasn't advanced. The same is true in the world of sex toys --- they have gotten better and have advanced to luxury sex toys because they are of higher quality.

So, stop buying cheap sex toys. This should not a "bargain shop" purchase ... It's a purchase deserving of the best quality and a few extra dollars. Be mindful of what you are putting in your body since many of these toys and adult products, such as lubricant are made with lots and lots of chemicals.

Quality comes at a price, and you will see right away that you pay for what you get.
