do introverts shop online or in person for sex toys

I was recently talking to a friend about the introverts shopping experience when it comes to sex toys. She said she was too embarrassed to enter an adult store in person, and that she’d rather buy online. I looked at her and asked “What would be different if you walked into a store?”. It surprised me! I mean, I’m definitely an online shopping person as it’s faster and more convenient, but I hadn’t thought too much about how introverts might feel.

Well, after some deep thinking, I can see why people who might be a bit shy would find it more comfortable to go online when shopping for sex toys. Firstly, there’s no need to talk to any sales staff. You can browse in peace and choose what you like without any pressure or judgement. There’s also the anonymity factor. No one needs to know where you bought that purple vibrator or the 50 Shades bunny rabbit. Buying online makes it easier to ask questions too, if that’s something you’re worried about – there’s always a helpdesk or customer service chatbot to consult.

Admittedly, online shopping sometimes has its drawbacks. You don’t get to feel the product, and sex toys you can’t get much of an idea of the size or shape. There’s the added confusion of all the descriptions too, some of the words might not even be in your everyday vocabulary! Not to mention the waiting game, as you wait for the delivery to arrive.

For me, I guess it depends on what I’m buying. If I know exactly what I want, or I’m buying more everyday items, such as a body wash or lube, then I’ll most likely purchase online. On the other hand, if I’m looking for something special, or need to seek advice on the various options available, then I’d rather go into a store and talk to a knowledgeable staff member who can help me choose the best product for my needs.

One thing’s for sure – buying sex toys can be a strange experience for introverts. So whatever way you choose to purchase, whether online or in store, take some time to think about it, and make sure you’re comfortable with your choice. After all, it’s important to feel secure in your purchase.
