Anal Toys

The best thing about anal toys is that anyone can use them. These are great for beginners because they can be easily introduced into foreplay. Anal toys provide excellent stimulation and are perfect for priming yourself or your partner for some hot booty lovin’. If you’re feeling daring, you can always try something like The Flanker, a cock-and-ball-torture (CBT) device that will leave him screaming with desire.

 

Pinwheels

BDSM play is all about the sensation of touch. It heightens one’s awareness of both pain and pleasure. One of the most popular beginner BDSM toys is the Wartenberg pinwheel, which comes in all different shapes and sizes. Pinwheels are used to stimulate the flesh as its tiny spikes are rolled over the body. There's a wide range from the single to the 7-Wheel Pinwheel to get started.

 

Floggers

Beginner flogger sex toy

Floggers are almost synonymous with the BDSM lifestyle, and many prefer them to whips or canes. Floggers are usually made of either leather or silicone, each with its own unique feel. The snap of silicone or leather tails striking a supple, quivering ass can almost immeditately put someone in a great headspace. Beginners will love the intimidating yet naughty feel of The Bestia leather flogger, which can brush you with all the litheness of a pussy cat or tear you apart like the ferocity of a tiger.

 

Breast Bondage

There are many different clamps available to stimulate your body, including nipple clamps, clit clamps, labia clamps, cock-and-ball clamps...you name it. For BDSM beginners, it is recommended to start with a simple pair of nipple clamps. Nippitine Nipple Clamps would make the Marquis de Sade proud. With each tightening screw, the line between plessure and pain becomes more and more blurred, while ecstasy quickly builds.
