How to Buy Sex Toys Online & Have Them Delivered Discreetly

3 minutes to read

Millions of adults enjoy using high quality sex toys and
millions more are interested in buying sex toys online but are nervous about
whether the packaging will be discreet. Most people do not want to share their
sex lives with neighbors, children, or the mail carrier. This uneasiness around
packaging makes them second-guess making a purchase. Because the pandemic has
made brick & mortar shopping less convenient, more people are turning to
online buying. If you’ve been somewhat hesitant to buy sex toys online, here
are some tips to put your mind at ease:

  1. Read the Description- Many luxury sex
    toys are shipped in discreet packaging – either plain packaging or the shipping
    carriers packaging — without the company name appearing anywhere. That said, not
    all sellers practice the same level of security. Read the store’s shipping
    information to see if there are references to the packaging. The retailer’s
    Frequently Asked Questions section may also give packing information.
  2. Product Reviews- In addition to the product
    descriptions, read reviews on the seller’s website. See if there is any mention
    of packaging. Most retailers that are selling sex toys online do not rely on the
    manufacturers’ packaging for shipping. They use their own; sometimes branded
    and other times, plain.
  3. Be Wary of Bloggers- Many of the so-called sex toy reviews found
    online are nothing more than thinly veiled affiliate sites; a website where
    bloggers earn a commission for every product sold. Even the big name blogs
    aren’t exempt from this practice. Honest reviews are great, but difficult to find.
    redditt is often a better source for real reviews and honest feedback.
  4. P.O. Box- For those who are unwilling
    to leave anything to chance, it’s easy to just rent a post office box and have
    packages delivered there. If the sex toy store you are shopping with happens to
    boldly broadcast details of your brand-new toys on the side of the box, at
    least only the post office employees will know! Keep in mind that some shipping
    carriers, such as UPS and FedEx, are unable to deliver to a P.O. Box.

Can Minors Buy Sex Toys Online?

Sex toys cannot legally be sold to anyone under the age of
18. When a shopper enters a sex toy website or when a shopper checks out, a birth
date may need to be entered. Even if that isn’t the case, minors should not try
to purchase sex toys online, even if they believe the product will be sent
discreetly and their parents will not find out.

Where NOT to Buy Sex Toys Online

If you decide to purchase sex toys online and don’t want
anyone find out, you may want to avoid shopping on websites like Amazon or Ebay.
Not only do these websites often sell fake and used toys, these websites also remember
your shopping and browsing history and sex toys just might show up in your
social media feed or Amazon suggested products. Another way to ensure that you keep
your sex toy shopping on the down low is to clear your cookies and browser
history, after making a purchase.

Avoid sex toy websites that do not disclose the manufacturer of their sex toys. It’s important to know product details, including what chemicals and materials are being used. Some
third-party sellers will claim to sell a luxury sex toy or high-end sex toy,
but instead are selling cheap knock offs that may be toxic or dangerous. The best advice is to stick with name brand
products and to buy from trusted websites.
