Having the best time with me.
Most people will enjoy sex toys more with a little water-based lubricant applied to your toy first - and of course, top up if you feel the need at any point!
As with all sex toys, you'll have the best experience by warming up your body with less sensitive erogenous zones first, then moving to more sensitive external areas like the clitoris, vulva, perineum and anus - whatever you like! Use the 'head' of the toy (the rounded, shorter end) to stimulate these areas. This is especially important prior to exploring internal stimulation.
When you're ready to move internally, we recommend holding Darcy at the entrance of the vagina, and using breath or movement to get comfortable before gently moving inside. There's no rush!
To experiment with stimulating the area known as the 'g spot' (technically a zone which is part of the clitoral network, rather than a spot!), insert the toy 2-3 inches, and turn the head of the toy upwards and towards the front wall of the vagina, and use a gentle motion to place pressure on this area (imagine if you were using a finger instead that you would be making a 'come here' motion with the hand facing upwards). Experiment with different levels of pressure and areas around this zone to find what feels pleasurable to you. You might also try combining this internal stimulation with external stimulation of areas like the clitoris, nipples, anus and other erogenous zones (try touching or stroking yourself, or if you're feeling particularly skillful, you can always combine two devices!).
Darcy is also double-ended, with the shorter round 'head' and the longer, slimmer arm on the other side. You can also experiment with internal stimulation and a sense of fullness using this other end. You may also want to pair it with music, scents, erotica, pornography or a fantasy of your own (whatever works to help you feel in the mood). Experiment to find what feels good for you, and follow that feeling.
Darcy is also great toy for using on and with partners. Darcy can be used for foreplay (warming up erogenous zones all over your own and your partner's body using the rounded head), for internal play (allowing a partner to control the device during internal stimulation) and even for penetration for both partners simultaneously. As with all things to do with internal stimulation, remember to use lots of lubricant, communicate clearly and take it slow as you find what works.

Our devices are designed to fit the widest range of bodies possible - but if it doesn't feel right to you, listen to your body. Let us know, and we'll help you find a device that really is a perfect match.
Cautions (to keep things normal).
Darcy is suitable for use in the shower and bath for up to 30 minutes.
Do not use silicon-based lubricants with Normal devices (water-based lubricants are best).
Clean and dry the toy thoroughly between each use (using soap and water on regularly used surfaces, or a sex toy cleaning spray - there is no need to submerge, boil or clean in appliances like a dishwasher or washing machine).
Store in a cool, dry spot.
Remember that STIs can be transmitted on surfaces (like a device) - so if using with a new partner or multiple partners, use barrier protection like condoms appropriately to manage risk.
While there are alternate uses for many sex toys, we do not recommend this device for oral or internal anal use.

Returns policy (a.k.a. the 100 Night Stand)
If you don’t love your first choice, let us know: every body is different, and we never want you to regret an experience with NORMAL.
Let our team know what didn’t work for you by contacting customer support (just email firstname.lastname@example.org), and they’ll organise a credit to spend on a new toy of your choice.

If you’d like help with picking something different, our customer support team can give you a personal recommendation and organise for it to be sent out to you.
We provide a one-year warranty from date of purchase (with replacement or refund) for functional issues - so while this does not cover regular cosmetic wear-and-tear from usage, it does cover any issues which impair the functioning of the toy and were not caused by non-recommended usage.
