6 Things Every Couple Needs to Know About Using Sex Toys
5 Women Reveal Their Favorite Sex Toys—and How They Use Them
There are a ton of sex toys out there. While this is amazing for ensuring that you have as many options as possible for some toy-assisted pleasure, it does make it a bit difficult to make a snap decision while trying to buy a toy after browsing shelves and shelves full of orgasm-promising sexcessories at your local sex toy store. So many options! Which one is right for me? Generally, toys can be broken up into a few umbrella categories: clitoral external toys, internal vaginal toys , cock rings , blowjob sleeves , and anal toys. Within each of these categories, there are also more subcategories, like you can have a suction toy and a bullet and a panty vibe all being clitoral toys, and anal beads and butt plugs within butt toys.
We tend to associate sex toys with masturbation —you know, something you drag outta the bedside drawer whenever a flesh-and-blood partner isn't available. But whether it's a vibrator , dildo, butt plug , cock ring , or prostate massager —or all of the above—a sex toy can also work wonders for all kinds of partner sex. Couples in a sex rut might find a shiny, new toy brings excitement back to their bedrooms, and couples who are already adventurous might use a toy to explore even more avenues for gettin' it on. There are even remote-controlled sex toys that can help couples in long-distance relationships keep the flame alive from far away. Some people looking at you, men shy away from the idea of a couple's sex toy out of fear their partners will like it better than their own junk.
