If you want to buy sex toys online in South Africa it's 100% discreet with passionfruit, South Africa's biggest online adult shop. Buying anything online can raise concerns, but this is amplified with sex toys. Maybe you don’t want people knowing about your kinky lifestyle, vibrators, or perhaps you think buying a butt plug online is dodgy. Your concerns are relevant, but with a little background knowledge, it’s easy to comfort your mind.

Here are 3 tips and solutions with buying sex toys online:

1. Scams

Everyone who buys anything online is concerned about scams. Will you get what you’re paying for? Is the website legit? All these question race through our minds before we hit the purchase button. A good way to determine if you’re going to be scammed is looking at the history of the website or online store. Has it been around long? Online stores that have stood the test of time are doing something right, not wrong. Angry customers, for example, can easily report false advertising, or scams, in which case the website would most likely close.

2. Discretion

This is one that worries people the most. Will my online purchase of a massive dildo be treated with discretion? After all, you may be happy with your lifestyle, but not necessarily keen on explaining it to anyone who might see the words “massive dildo” on your delivery. When buying sex toys online, always check to see what the shop says about its delivery service. Ensure that it is 100% discreet, even if you have to contact the website owners and ask them directly. Many online sex shops send orders in plain packaging, and if you pay by card, your statement will also be discreet.

3. Paying online

Paying online with a credit card always carries risks, but there are ways to minimise this risk. Make sure that the website you’re buying from uses an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate, which is an industry standard for every online shop. You can usually spot the certificate on the homepage of a website. Protected websites also always have a “lock” symbol at the beginning of the URL address. This technology offers the best possible security and the highest level of authentication and is thus used by banks, for example, to protect online banking data.

So next time you’re shopping online in South Africa, look out for these simple cues to give you peace of mind so that you can enjoy your dirty fetishes, without concern!
