Sex toys are everywhere you look today, even high end stores are selling battery operated boyfriends as “massagers”. As you know there are a huge variety in all shapes and sizes from a realistic replica of a penis to cucumbers! The popularity and use of these products has increased due to increased exposure in the media from TV to books.
The question of the day is are these toys just for fun or are there other benefits as well? One of the biggest questions is who if anyone would receive them? Believe it or not your relationship status comes into play.
For single people in addition to the good feelings there are a few interesting health benefits:
- Stress relief since endorphins are released in the brain during orgasm.
- It burns calories! While it is known that a sex session burns a good amount of calories the same is true when using a vibrator. Maybe not as many as an hour or so with a partner but it increases your heart rate. This has the same benefit as an hour long cardio workout and it sure as hell is more enjoyable than going to the gym?
- Remember those endorphins which reduce stress? They can also help you to cope with pain be it physical or emotional.
So if you’re a single lady knock yourself using a sex toy,it’s a great way to get your orgasm and improve your health at the same time.
What if you are in a relationship though? Can they help there as well? The answer is a resounding yes.
One of the main benefits is that it adds a new dimension to what can become a routine. Even though we might not like to admit it the longer you’re in a relationship the more of a “chore” sex can become. Some people still find it hard to talk about what it is they really want when it comes to sex since this will avoid hurting the feelings of their partner but it surprising how people can lose their inhibitions when sex toys are used. They will make things become more adventurous in the bedroom. I myself enjoy using my toys while my partner watches or they use them on me as well. In addition to being a bit different it adds the “feeling” of a third person which some couples may want to explore later.
As you can see, the benefits of using sex toys far outweigh any disadvantages whether you are single or in a relationship. If you’re a single lady keep up what you’re doing. If you are in a relationship and currently don’t use toys talk to your partner and bring them in slowly.
