Frequently Asked Questions

About our toys

We deliver a paperless digital product guide to you via email when you make your purchase. Additionally, all of these product guides are stored here permanently.

Nope! All Normal toys are designed to be charged via a USB cable.

Your toy will arrive with a charging cord and a complimentary collection bag for storing your sexual wellness essentials.

We are committed to making our products as sustainable as possible (and we know what it's like to lose the instructions at the worst moment), so your paperless product guide will be emailed to you in advance of your product arrival (and you can find all of the product guides here whenever you need them).

All of our toys are made from body-safe silicone.

Plug one end of your USB charging cord into a USB port, and connect the other end to the toy.

Our toy charging ports are in different locations and may look different on some toys, so we recommend you check the product guide for your specific product to confirm how to charge.

We recommend giving toys at least 2 hours to reach full charge and regularly charge to keep your toy in best working order.

All of our toys are safe for washing with soap and water (or cleaning spray, like NORMAL’s toy and hand cleaning spray) by cleansing the surfaces between uses. You should always avoid putting toys in items like dishwashers or washing machines, or boiling them to clean them.

In terms of bringing toys into the shower or bath, check the specific toy product guide, as this varies by toy.

That should be fine.

Many of our toys can be used for multiple purposes - if it feels pleasurable somewhere else on your body or your partner's body, that's great! So feel free to explore, remembering to use lubricant and go slowly.

That said, we should give a couple of specific warnings about anal play - if inserting something, it's very important to use only products with a 'flared base' (a wide section which is substantially larger than the diameter of the anus) to ensure that you can remove the toy easily. And if using a toy in or around the anal area, we recommend cleaning thoroughly before using elsewhere on the body (or putting barrier protection like a condom on your toy). No one wants to be on the wrong side of either of those scenarios!

Similarly, we recommend using only toys designed for vaginal insertion in the vagina - the phrase "anything is a dildo if you're brave enough" is not one we endorse!

And finally, we don't recommend oral usage of these toys.

If you go to our Collection page and find your toy, you will find a great instructional video guide from our in-house sex coach Georgia Grace.

All of our product guides are also stored here.

You can also visit our blog for advice on a wide range of sexual education and skill-building topics, including guides to better sex for a range of needs.

Yes! Your toy is made from body-safe silicone.

Note that we recommend using only water-based lubricants with your toy, as silicon-based lubricants will degrade the toy's silicone.

If for any reason you are having a physical issue with the toy, cease using the toy and any other products combined with it, and let us know straight away via hey@itsnormal.com.

We recommend using either a cleaning spray designed for sex toys (like NORMAL’s toy and hand cleaning spray), or warm water and a mild soap on the external surfaces of the toy.

Yes. Trust us.

You should ensure your toy is cleaned between uses (by you, with a partner or with multiple partners - every time means every time) to limit infection risk. We recommend the NORMAL cleaning spray!

As a default answer - probably yes. If you find it more pleasurable not to after experimenting, then great - no lubricant needed. But we find most people have better experiences with lubricants.

If you’re new to lubricants, check out our guide to the different types of lubricants.

You should stick to water-based lubricants for use with silicone toys to avoid degrading the silicon.

Yes - especially if using a toy with more than one person, this is a great way to ensure everyone has a safe experience and avoid any infections being transmitted. Just remember to change between uses (and to keep cleaning your toy every time as well).

Our toys are made in China and shipped to Australia, where they are packed and sent to you!

That's OK! Our bodies aren't all the same, and while these toys are designed to cover as much of the range as possible, nothing will be a perfect fit for everyone.

You should contact us via hey@itsnormal.com and organise to use our 100 night stand policy (which gives you 100 nights to trial your product, and if for any reason you don't love it, return it for store credit to try something else).

We would also be delighted to get your feedback and give you a recommendation for another toy.

Vibrators vibrate, dildos don't! Find out more on the difference between dildos and vibrators here.

A cool, dry, hygienic spot (like your new collection bag from NORMAL) is ideal.

If you’re heading overseas, it’s important to know whether the places you’re visiting have sex toy restrictions, so to avoid any trouble, educate yourself on your destination’s policies beforehand. Different countries have different rules about where you can keep loose power items during a flight (for example, carry on or checked baggage). Again, we recommend checking before you travel.

Luckily for you, all the NORMAL toys are rechargeable - so that’s one less thing to worry about!

We recommend taking our quiz first to get a better idea of your preferences, and checking out our sex coach Georgia’s introduction videos for each toy (just go to the individual toy’s page on our website).

If you’re still unsure, you can reach out to our support team at hey@itsnormal.com with your quiz recommendation and personal preferences, so that they can help you find the best toy for you.

Also, to put your mind at ease, we believe it takes time to find the right fit, so if you feel like the toy you have picked isn’t right for you, we can give you a full refund or exchange for another toy with the 100 Night Stand Policy.

Please email our support team at hey@itsnormal.com with your current home address and which charger you need and we’ll get you sorted with a replacement!

100 Night Stand trial policy

We never want anyone to regret buying from us - and we know even the best toy isn’t perfect for every body and every person.

If you don't love your toy, you have 100 days (and nights!) to let us know and receive a store credit for the value of your purchase, to be put toward another toy. Our team will even support you to choose another toy and have it delivered if you’d like! It’s that simple.

You send lovely customer support team a message at hey@itsnormal.com and they will sort you out.

Our customer support team will reach out over email and get your feedback on the toy to understand what’s not working for you.

If appropriate, they’ll send out a printable postage label to help you post back your original toy for disposal.

They’ll then organise you a credit for your next purchase, and if you’d like help choosing another product, our team will listen to your feedback and offer a personalised recommendation to match you with a better toy for your needs. They can even organise for it to be sent out to your preferred address as well.

Our team will apply a store credit to your account (if the value is greater than your prior toy, you will need to pay an additional amount; if it is less, you will be able to have an additional store credit or be paid a refund of the remainder). Your store credit will act like a discount code so you won’t be able to use another discount code on top of it.

Nope! We really, really want you to enjoy your purchase from Normal, and we know it's vital to find the perfect match for your needs.

We assume our customers are operating in good faith, but we do also place a limit of one credit and exchange per purchase on our products to ensure we can provide this program to all customers, and keep an eye on return numbers to make sure the policy is being used in the intended manner.

All about warranties

Normal has a warranty of one year on all toys for functional issues (i.e. issues which prevent the toy from fulfilling its function, rather than cosmetic wear-and-tear).

You are welcome to seek a replacement for any functional issues in this period - just reach out to our lovely customer support team via hey@itsnormal.com and they'll get you sorted straight away!

Submit a request via email (hey@itsnormal.com) and our customer support team will be in touch to organise the process. Please provide your order number and current home address if you’re looking to get your product replaced

Our customer support team will reach out to you and record the issue which occurred (including asking for a photo or video to confirm the issue). This helps us to improve our products and prevent future issues.

They will then organise a replacement to be sent out to your preferred address, ASAP!

NORMAL uses the sales of our sexual wellness range to help us fund creating free inclusive online education (check out our guides, course and socials), as well as closing the research gap through initiatives like The Big Sex Survey, and advocacy on issues related to sex education and sexual wellness.

We aim to operate as sustainably as possible. Our mailer bags are compostable, and our packaging is designed to be kept and enjoyed as much as possible.

We deliberately choose to use language on our website which reflects a modern understanding of sex, gender and sexuality. We don't assume that our users are heterosexual or cisgendered, and we speak in terms of anatomy to allow everyone to find the right products for their bodies.

Unfortunately at this stage we don’t have the capacity to accept any more toys for our Trade In Program (we didn’t anticipate such a huge response to our recycling program and are currently working to rectify this!).

In terms of our sustainability commitments, our products still come in compostable mailers, with packaging designed to be re-used or recycled, and we’ll keep you posted if we begin accepting toys in the Trade In Program again.

In the meantime we recommend reaching out to your local council to see if they’d accept them under e-waste.

Please reach out to our customer support team at hey@itsnormal.com with the discount code you forgot to add and if the discount code is still active the team can refund you the difference.
