How to Introduce Sex Toys into Your Relationship
Sex toys can be an exciting way to relight the flame in an established relationship or even a fun way to get to know each other’s bodies in a new one!
But a lot of people get hung up on the how and when of introducing sex toys to the bedroom. With a few simple steps it can be really easy and really fun to get started.
- Talk About It
Make sure both you and your partner are on the same page about using sex toys. Nothing is going to kill the mood faster than if you surprise your partner in the wrong way. The types of sex toys you might be interested in are something worth going over in detail. Furthermore it’s important to put any hang ups either of you have about using sex toys out in the open so they can be addressed. You don’t want anyone feeling inadequate when they should be feeling aroused.
- Do Your Research
Get online and check out some reviews of popular sex toys and maybe even a few tips for using them. The tried and tested favourites are popular for a reason so if you have no idea where to start, why not take the advice of someone more experienced in the area?
- Start Small
You don’t need to jump straight into massive dildos and bizarre attachments and fetish gear. Consider starting with something very basic like a small vibrator and a pair of handcuffs or a blindfold. There is plenty of time to work your way up if you decide that sex toys are your thing.
- Shop Together
Purchasing sex toys can be a fun bonding experience for you and your partner, or at least a kinky date idea. By shopping together you’ll be able to purchase toys that interest both of you and don’t freak either of you out. If you’re shopping in person you’ll both be able to ask questions of the attendants and if you’re shopping online you’ll both be able to research the sex toys for sale.
- Go Slowly
If you bring your new toys home and just aren’t feeling it right away, that’s fine. You don’t need to jump in and use them right away, it’s okay to fool around and get used to them in your own time. Be sure to have open communication and feedback with your partner so that you can take a time out if either of you are becoming uncomfortable. If a sex toy doesn’t work for you then don’t use it!
Introducing a sex toy to your relationship doesn’t need to be daunting or embarrassing. With a little forward thinking it can be easy and even kind of fun. As long as you are open and honest with your partner about your wants and needs, the right sex toy for your relationship can be found and is sure to spice things up. Why not talk to your partner about it today?
