Are Sex Toy Subscription Boxes The Way To Go?
April 20, 2017
Plenty of people have started to use subscription boxes as a way to try new things. Most of the time, people opt for food boxes to try new products or beauty boxes to get samples of the latest make-up items on the market. If you can think of it, there is a subscription box for it… and this means you can actually sign up to sex toy subscription boxes too!
Sex toy subscription boxes are becoming more and more popular… but are they the way to go? If you want to update your toy drawer with the latest products, should you sign up to a subscription or simply head to the store to buy some things yourself?
How do subscription boxes work?
The way that these boxes tend to work is that the customer will sign up to a “no obligation” subscription, much like you would for Netflix or Spotify. Except instead of getting access to movies or music, you’ll instead get items send to your home.
You can get them monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly. This means that you get that special delivery just when you need it, but the most exciting thing about it is that the items inside are often a complete surprise! You might know the type of things you can expect, but the actual products you receive will be a mystery until you open the box.
There are so many different types of boxes for you to get. You can buy some with ingredients and recipes in to make delicious meals. Some simply contain snacks or beauty products. You can even get some with fresh razor blades so that you are always looking clean for your date!
Sex toy subscription boxes
With such a huge selection of things you can get pushed through your letterbox it was only a matter of time before somebody went “do you know what people need to receive in the post? Sex toys”. So if you are feeling a little frisky or you want to update your toy drawer, you can sign up to a sex toy subscription box!
These subscription boxes are often a little more expensive than other subscriptions you can get. But in them you’ll got a number of different sex toys and essentials to try out. You can get everything from condoms and lube to sex toys and BDSM equipment.
Getting a box means that you get fresh items each month to try, and if you are a little more open minded you can get some fantastic things you have never heard about in your box! You could get a cock ring, bed restraints, whips, and even items for a kinky costume!
Why people are reluctant
Of course for some people these sex toy subscription boxes aren’t what they were hoping for, and they aren’t as popular as they could be. There are many different companies who have started up a sex toy subscription box only to go out of business shortly afterwards.
It seems that people aren’t as keen to buy the boxes, and this is for a number of reasons. For a start, they are pretty expensive. The cheapest will set you back £25, while the most expensive cost £50. These are the prices per month, and so they are a huge expenditure!
People are also worried about getting them as getting a box full of sex toys could be a little too much. Yes, we love trying new toys, but having new ones to try each month could get boring after a while, especially with hectic schedules.
You might not get many toys in your box each month, and if you opt for a cheaper subscription the toys you get might not be long lasting. So you have to choose between a few great, long-wearing sex toys or many toys which might break sooner than you’d like.
Are they worth it?
The big question is: are sex toy subscription boxes the way to go? For some people they are a fantastic idea. If you are open minded you get the chance to try some new toys each month, and the excitement you’ll feel when the box arrives will get you in the mood. You won’t want to wait to open the box and play with your new toys!
For others, the boxes come too often or cost too much. You can always adjust your subscription so that you only get one box every few months, but even then £50 at a time is a lot of money to pay!
What do you think? Are sex toy subscription boxes worth it? Would you invest in one to help to fill up your toy drawer? Or would you rather head to the shop with your partner and hand pick the toys you want to buy for yourself?
