How Can Sex Toys Improve Your Relationship?

How Can Sex Toys Improve Your Relationship?

If you’re reading this, we can assume that you fall into one of two categories: you’re curious about welcoming sex toys into the bedroom, or you’re keen to improve your relationship. 

Well, we’re glad to tell you that both sides can be satisfied at the same time, provided you approach things the right way. 

Sexual intimacy is so important to most* couples (*we see you, asexuals!) and introducing sex toys into your ‘activities’ can bring an entirely new dimension to your relationship. 

In the past, the mere mention of sex toys, games or bondage gear could have been considered taboo, but today they are as commonplace as the bed itself and add a lot of excitement in a lot of different ways. 

So, let’s not dance around the subject. Let’s discuss exactly how sex toys could be a boon in the bedroom and bring you closer to your partner than ever before. 

Next-level Intimacy

We won’t deny that increased pleasure is a major selling point for sex toys, but we’re going to focus on the lovey-dovey side of the coin first.

The introduction of sex toys between a couple can take a lot of trust, patience, understanding and communication. 

Many people might feel overwhelmed by their first toy being more complicated than the terms and conditions, so it pays to test the waters slowly. 

This begins with an open and honest conversation about why they might be a good idea for you, and what form they might take. 

This will be initiated by one of you at some point and the best-case scenario is that you were both thinking the same thing. The next best is that the other person feels cautious but open-minded and will need to be reassured of the benefits. 

This whole process of open communication and trust is sure to strengthen any relationship as each person works on making the other feel comfortable. 

Once the toy is bought online or in-store, the real intimacy can begin. Some people feel threatened by sex toys and feel as if their partner will replace them with the toy. It’s paramount to raise these concerns with your partner and allow them to reassure you that these toys must be seen as sex enhancers and not sex replacers. 

When used right, these little wonders can benefit both of you at the same time – it’s all a matter of practice and creativity.

Okay, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. The whole point of sex toys is that they’re designed to feel really, REALLY good. Or, you know, just really good – we’re all different and you can’t expect every toy to suit every body. 

As you dive into the world of sex toys, be aware that it will likely take some time and experimentation to find what works for you and your partner. 

Don’t see this as an obstacle, but an opportunity to explore your sexual relationship with yourself and with your partner. 

There are so many toys that you might not be aware of – your favourite sexual act may not have ever been considered before! It can be a really exciting journey for both of you, so long as you allow it to unfold. 

Reduce Sexual Anxiety

You might not realise it because it’s rarely discussed, but sexual dissatisfaction can lead to real anxiety in the bedroom. 

An inability to finish or to pleasure your partner can hurt relationships and individuals when a person may have simply missed their ticket to satisfaction. 

They’re never a surefire way to improve your sex life, but if you haven’t tried toys then you can’t claim to have tried everything.

The cruel cycle of sexual dissatisfaction can create an aversion to such activities, causing a person to believe they simply don’t enjoy sex. In turn, when they try to enjoy it, their anxiety gets the better of them and this stops them from enjoying the experience. 

Enter: sex toys. 

Using sex toys together can help to create a safe and supportive environment where partners can explore their desires without fear of judgement or rejection. This can lead to increased sexual confidence and a more fulfilling sex life.

Perhaps you’ve always felt close to orgasm but couldn’t cross the finish line – sex toys may be the superpower you need to open doors to new sexual dimensions. 

As we said, you can’t knock it until you try it.
