Today I am going to do something I have never done before, review a sex toy shop. The thought never occurred to me, but when I was asked to review it, I happily accepted the opportunity. It never hurts to find new sites to purchase products right?
The first thing I do when a company approaches me is check out how their site looks, what they are selling and make sure it doesn’t contain any offensive content. Tacky Sex Toys passed the test overall.
TackySexToys.com is retailer that provides a large selection of toys and novelty items, carrying over 17,000 products for you to choose from. You can find sex toys made of plastic, glass, silicone and steel. Offering a selection of toys from respected manufacturers such as Tantus, LELO, We-Vibe, Sliquid and more.
I was thrilled to see they carried plus sizes, transgender apparel and even adult books. Go them! The anal toy selection looked pretty good too, though I did find couple unsafe toys. Just always make sure that it has a substantial flared base that prevents it from becoming lost in the rectum if you plan on ordering one.
The dildos and vibrators selection also looked great and I like how they allow you to browse subcategories. The only downside is that you can’t select to only see the newest toys or order by price. I must add, I did see toys made of porous materials like jelly and PVC for sale, which aren’t safe to put inside your body but that’s something I can’t control obviously. So please be careful, read the materials of the products before purchasing and always go with nonporous materials for your sex toys.
Another thing I noticed I know a lot of people take issue with is that they have gendered their selection of products by having a section for “Men’s Toys“. Something the sex-positive community would like to see retailers avoid. Labeling this category as “prostate toys” or such would definitely be a great idea.
The site itself is very easy to navigate on both desktops and mobile devices and isn’t flooded with ads. It offers a menu with categories listed, as well as a search bar at the very top, so it’s really easy to find what you are looking for. They also provide a site map so you don’t have difficulties locating something on their site. There is also a red button featuring a shopping cart so you can directly access to the items you add and easily proceed to order.
When it comes to ordering, all you have to do is add a product to your card and proceed to checkout by logging in or creating an account to be able to track the status of your order(s) and review them if wanted. Maybe in the future they will also add a way to check out as a guest for a quicker way to shop without having to save your details. After that, you have to choose your preferred shipping method (usually UPS unless you must use an P.O. Box), add special instructions, apply a discount code if you have one and finally pay using a debit or credit card or via Paypal (which is quick method many people prefer over entering their credit card number). You can find their Ordering FAQ here, but don’t be afraid of contacting them if you have any other questions. I got to chat to Pinky, their Marketing Manager and she was very attentive and helpful.
Tacky Sex Toys understands the importance of privacy, they will always ship your purchases and bill you discretely. All of their orders are shipped with packaging labels on the inside of a plain box, and blank shipping labels on the outside. Their billing system never mentions your order details or the company’s name on your statement. They have also even developed a fair price pledge, which in my opinion is fantastic! Read all about it here.
I hope to see them offering free shipping on certain orders in the near future, be more active on their social media accounts to engage with customers and run occasional sales or host giveaways both on their own site and with bloggers. I also hope they make a commitment to selling more body-safe toys.
Overall, Tacky Sex Toy‘s genuinely wants to offer their customers a better shopping experience and are in my opinion headed in the right direction. They have competitive prices and have a nice selection of products and several categories, so next time you are shopping for a new sex toy, lube, bondage or other adult products and accessories, make sure you stop by their page and subscribe to their newsletter to receive the latest offers, discounts and updates!
