Frequently Asked Questions

1. I’m a first-time buyer or beginner—where should I start?

We suggest that you start small, with a compact item. Browse the Discreet Vibrators section, note a few items that you find intriguing, do a little research, and make your purchase. (Don’t forget to also buy a water-based lubricant/moisturizer!)

A compact item designed for external pleasure is a good first pick because it can be used for all-over massage and many users find that they are readily able to orgasm through clitoral stimulation. Remember that orgasms—how they feel and how they are reached—are unique to the individual. Sex toys are a great way to explore and discover what works for you and what doesn’t work for you, on your own or with a partner.

If you are a beginner, you might also start with a classic or G Spot vibrator of a size and shape that you would feel comfortable using.

 

2. I’ve seen inexpensive items on Amazon, eBay, and AliExpress—are these safe or legitimate?

While there are some third-party sellers on Amazon, eBay, and AliExpress who do vend safe and legitimate items, there remains a significant risk of receiving a counterfeit item from an unethical seller. The production and sale of counterfeit sex toys is increasing in frequency and is potentially dangerous to the health of users.

Most luxury brands set a minimum advertised price and limit online retailers from selling on the secondary market (i.e., third-party sales on Amazon, eBay, AliExpress, and similar platforms). Brands do this to prevent retailers from continuously lowering prices to undercut competition and, more importantly, to mitigate the risk of counterfeiting. Should a third-party seller vend items at a discount of 50-90% or more off the retail price, it is likely that these are counterfeit items.

Please note that LUVOQA does not sell items on Amazon, eBay, AliExpress, or any similar platform.

 

3. How do you protect my privacy?

As is necessary to process and ship orders, we collect and store the contact information provided by our customers during the checkout process. We do not store payment information. We never sell information about our customers, or their orders, to any third party.

LUVOQA only sends emails to prompt order completion, confirm orders, notify customers about backorders, confirm shipping, and request service reviews. We never automatically opt in customers to any mailing list for marketing or promotional purposes.

5. How old do I have to be to place an order?

Current US law requires that customers be at least 18 years old in order to purchase sex toys.

Please note that LUVOQA may cancel any purchase without being liable for damages or costs if we have reason to believe that you are under 18 years old, per our Terms of Service.

10. Can I track my order once it has shipped?

11. Can I cancel or modify my order?

Once an order has shipped from one of our warehouses, we are unable to cancel or modify the order, as the items contained therein cannot be resold or handled in keeping with industry best practices of health and hygiene.

LUVOQA typically processes orders within 24 business hours. If an order has yet to ship, you may contact customer service to cancel or modify the order.

 

12. Can I return or exchange my order?

Due to the intimate nature of the products sold on this website, and in order to ensure that all of our customers receive only new, unopened items, LUVOQA does not accept returns for reasons of dissatisfaction or ordinary wear and tear. We implement this measure as a part of our overall commitment to safety.

In keeping with industry best practices of health and hygiene, once an order has shipped from one of our warehouses the items contained therein cannot be resold or handled, regardless of whether or not upon receipt the items are opened.

If an item has a manufacturing defect and the manufacturer does not offer a warranty on the item, you may request a return authorization in order to obtain a same replacement item or equivalent store credit. We are unable to issue refunds. LUVOQA will not accept items returned without a return authorization—please do not attempt to return an item without making a request for and obtaining a return authorization.
