I am not a doctor, so I recommend that you consult a doctor before using any toys. Do not use anything on your body without your doctor's permission. If you are sexually active and need help, I would highly recommend visiting your doctor right away.
Stimulation toys (e.g., dildos, vibrators, butt plugs, strap-ons) are a new addition to the toy scene. They're also more affordable than the toys you've been familiar with. Most stimulation toys are made of plastic or wood, but some have metal pieces. They are great for stimulating the clitoris, or any part of the vagina, that's covered or otherwise damaged. They are also great for prostate stimulation because they stretch the muscles. Some stimulation toys even have small sensors on their ends that make them feel really good when you push them into your vagina. Pleasure toys (also called "bondage toys," or "sex toys") work by stimulating or binding the genitalia. It's important to know that while some pleasure toys are very effective, some may be harmful to you. A good rule of thumb is that you should only use a pleasure toy for one or two minutes at a time. Many pleasure toys are very good for one to two days. Most of them will last much longer if they are stored properly.
