Are you curious about using sex toys in your relationship, but worried about your partner's reaction? If you are, you're not alone. Many couples have a hard time bringing this topic up. They're afraid that it will make the other feel inadequate. Some, simply think the topic is taboo.
Sex toys, however, are super common. They aren't meant to replace your partner, but rather increase your pleasure together. Did you know that this industry brings in multi-billions' of dollars each year? If you're not using a sex toy, chances are, your friend is. According to The Journal of Sexual Medicine, one in two women use a vibrator. Bottom line: it's an extremely normal desire, and can even save your relationship in some cases.
So, what are you waiting for? Help your significant other jump on board the sex toy train by starting the conversation with these 4 steps.
1. Ask at an Appropriate Time
Never bring this topic up after, or right before you have sex. Your hormones are already high during these times. It will leave your partner feeling like they aren't meeting your sexual expectations. The best time to approach this topic is when you both are in a relaxed, happy mood.
2. Use the Right Verbiage
Use the right verbiage while you're giving them the "sex toy talk", so they won't feel like you are replacing them. Pick a move that turns you on, and suggest a sex toy that will enhance that feeling. For example, if you like submissive positions, tell them you think a toy - like wraparound mattress restraints - will help enhance your experience.
3. Start with Beginner Toys
Vibrators and lubricants are great beginner toys to start with. Most people find them the least intimidating. It may surprise you to know that lube is actually this industry's #1 best selling product.
