5 Reasons to try a sex toy for the first time

Ember says…

Some people go through life never using sex toys, either because they find it taboo, they are of the older generation with less access to such things or they have never been inclined to try them.

Sex toys can open up new avenues of pleasure – here’s five reasons why beginners should try sex toys:

1) They help you figure out what you enjoy

Solo play with a toy means you can use it however you like.  You can try different positions along with the various settings on the toy, for example change up the level of vibration to find the intensity you enjoy best.  As well as different locations – bed/shower/bath.  You can also use toys on different areas of your body to see which types of sensation do it for you.

Using toys also helps boost self-confidence and gain an added appreciation for your body.

2) It can be easier to orgasm when with your partner

Trying a toy with a partner can add something extra to play time.  Sometimes it’s hard to orgasm - 70% of women need some sort of clitoral stimulation to orgasm according to the Kinsey Institute.  A toy can take the pressure off you and your partner.  Whilst your partner is likely trying their best, a toy can hit your sweet spot and make it more likely you will orgasm.

3) Masturbation is one of the best forms of self-care

A new toy will almost certainly encourage you to masturbate more, and that does wonders for your body and your mental health.  The release of the feel-good chemicals brought on by orgasm can improve your mood or a cheeky session before bed can lead to a sound night sleep.

4) Sex toys can ease symptoms of the menopause

Many symptoms of menopause relate to vaginal issues.  Using a slim vibrator with lubricant can help to stretch the tissues of the vagina to enable penetration without pain.  The vibrations can increase blood flow to the walls of the vagina, promoting healing, stimulating nerves and improving lubrication.  There is also some evidence that the use of toys can lead to an improvement in sleep and overnight menopausal sweating.

5) They can help boost your sex drive

It’s a vicious circle – but a good one!

Using toys can improve your libido - the more you use them, the better sex can feel as having sex can improve vaginal lubrication, blood flow and elasticity.  This in turn makes you likely to have more sex.
