Sex toys were once a taboo topic of discussion and could be purchased only as mail-order “massagers” or in seedy little novelty stores. Thankfully, sex toys are now widely available and come in many varieties, so it’s easy to discover the many reasons why sex toys are healthy, fun, and beneficial. Here are the top-ten reasons:
Use It or Lose It
Sex toys help you stay sexually primed. Regular self-stimulation helps to promote healthy blood flow to the genitals, and it also helps keep you in touch with your sexual fantasies and desires. Sex toys can play a vital role in self-stimulation, especially for women.
Discover New Levels of Pleasure
Sex toys can take you to new levels of sexual pleasure.
For most women, orgasm isn’t as easy as one, two, three…. But with toys, orgasms become more frequent, and they can also become more intense and pleasurable.
Anyone Can Play
Sex toys can be used by everyone — not just single women. In fact, women who are in relationships are most likely to own and use sex toys. Studies show that 78 percent of women who use or have used a sex toy reported being in a relationship. Additionally, a recent study found that almost 25 percent of people have used sex toys with their partners.
More Time for Foreplay
Instead of leaping right into intercourse, sex toys can help you slow down and enjoy the ride. From vibrators to massage oils to bondage gear, sex toys and aids can help you make sex as fun and erotic as you desire.
G-spot Orgasms Easier to Achieve
With G-spot stimulators, you will be better able to locate and stimulate this hot spot. Or, you can even reach a blended orgasm (a simultaneous vaginal and clitoral orgasm) by using a toy that stimulates both areas at once.
Use Them to Your Heart's Desire
Sex toys can be used on a regular basis. They will not permanently damage your sexual response or harm your sexual pleasure in any way. Just keep them clean after every use so they don’t grow bacteria. Rinse them with warm water or use a sex-toy cleaner.
People of All Ages Use Them
Many people use sex toys: men or women, singles or couples, and people of all ages. In fact, 44 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 60 have used a sex toy.
A Boost of Confidence
Sex toys can boost your confidence. A recent study linked self-stimulation with increased body image and lower sexual anxiety. Sex toys can play an important role in masturbation and in helping a woman fully explore herself and discover what feels best.
Female Sexual Empowerment
Recent research from the Kinsey Institute found that women who used vibrators were more likely to take care of their health by visiting their ob-gyn in the past 12 months. In addition, vibrator users reported higher levels of desire, arousal, lubrication, and orgasm.
Explore Fantasies With Your Partner
Sex toys get you talking, fantasizing, and connecting with your partner on a physical and emotional level. The best way to improve your sex life and your sexual pleasure is to talk openly and honestly about your needs and desires, and sex toys can play a big role in getting that conversation started and helping to break down barriers and taboos
