What Beginners Need To Know About Sex Toys
If you’ve never considered using a sex toy before, it can seem like a leap in the dark. There are so many different types, it can all feel a bit confusing and difficult to know what would be right for you. It’s a very personal decision, and of course sex toys are there to enhance your sexual wellbeing, not to add another layer of stress and pressure to your life.
However, it is a shame to miss out on something that could help you become more sexually confident and adventurous. They can help you work out what your sexual preferences really are, and what you genuinely enjoy in bed and what you don’t. They can help you achieve stronger orgasms and overcome a low libido.
There are sex toys for people of all genders and orientations, and they are equally fun to use solo or with a partner. Remember that sex toys are there to work for you, to heighten your pleasure and make it more intense. Here are some ideas to help you discover the world of sex toys.
Vibrators are sex toys, usually made of soft silicone, which have a motor that vibrates. Many have different speeds and settings, so you can control the intensity and motion of the vibration. They are available in a huge range of shapes and sizes, and can be used internally or externally.
Many women use vibrators to stimulate the clitoris during sexual activity, because this is the easiest and quickest way for them to reach orgasm. If you’ve never used one before, a bullet vibrator is a popular first choice, as they are small and very easy to use.
Butterfly vibrators, which are worn like a sexy pair of knickers, are a great alternative, and best for providing clitoral stimulation while you have sex with a partner. You can even wear them out and about under your clothing if you want the thrill of some secret sexy stimulation!
Vibrating cock rings
These are designed to be worn at the base of the penis, and are available in vibrating and non-vibrating versions. They help men to stay harder for longer during sex, by compressing the blood vessels and making it more difficult for the blood to drain away. They are easy to put on, and shouldn’t cause discomfort.
Some versions vibrate to help provide an extra level of stimulation to the wearer and their partner. They can be used for fun, to make sex last longer and feel more intense. They are also good for helping men who have issues with erectile dysfunction.
Love eggs and Kegel balls
These are small oval shaped balls that are designed to be worn internally. Many women use them to help tighten up their pelvic floor muscles after childbirth, which makes partnered sex more satisfying and intense.
Butt plugs and anal beads
These are used to stimulate the sensitive nerves in the anus, and are a great way for beginners to experiment with anal sex in a safe and controlled way.
