Sex Toys for Sexual Wellness

Sex toys have long since been thought of as unmentionable little secrets.

Some sex toys still carry a taboo and a lot of people are pretty reserved when it comes to talking about using them. Yet millions of people around the world enjoy them and unless millions of people around the world are perverts (okay, maybe that’s a little true) there must be something pretty amazing about them. What if I told you that sex toys weren’t just for mindless self-indulgence and that they aren’t exclusively used by perverts or the stereotypical shy person who can’t get any? What if I told you that sex toys can actually play a really important part in your overall sexual health?

It’s a well-established fact that women have a much harder time achieving orgasm than men. Men, it’s not your fault, we’re just built a little complicated down there and the important thing is that you’re trying! Sex toys can help improve the likelihood of a women climaxing during sex in two key ways. One way is by encouraging masturbatory exploration which is recommended to women who have difficulty reaching orgasm. After all, if she doesn’t know how it all works how can she possibly hope to explain it to her sexual partners? The second, more obvious way is by utilising sex toys during sexual intercourse. Men need not be offended! Only a tiny portion of women can climax without direct clitoral stimulation and sometimes it’s just not possible to get there – those fancy positions can be tricky! Sex toys can provide the clitoral stimulation that many women need to get off and more orgasms can only be good for their sexual wellbeing!

Men can also buy toys to improve their sexual health. Unlike women, men tend to worry about finishing too early. Sex toys can provide ways for a man to delay orgasm or even train to last longer in the long term. Cock rings are popular male sex toys that can be fitted around a man’s penis to help him last longer during sex. Vibrating versions are also available that both he and his partner might enjoy. The increasingly popular Fleshlight can also be used to build stamina by following a sort of penis endurance training program. Premature ejaculation could be a distant memory with a little bit of practice with the right sex toy.

What else can sex toys do for your sexual wellbeing? Well, if you’re a part of a couple a sex toy might reignite the spark in the bedroom which is sure to have a positive impact on your intimacy levels. People who report feeling sexually satisfied by their relationship are more likely to rate their relationship as positive overall and a happy relationship has been shown to do wonders for individual health. Your sex life might also benefit from the cooperation and trust that comes with using some of the more advanced sex toys, such as bondage equipment.

Sex toys are far from being simple devices of pleasure. With all the potential benefits sex toys are practically medical devices! Well, maybe not quite but they are pretty great. Next time you’re playing with your favourite toy don’t feel guilty for wasting time. You should feel good knowing that you’re doing something to increase your sexual wellbeing.
