Using sex toys: a sex therapist's advice


I can perfectly understand those who aren't particularly interested, or are even against using sex toys. To me, it seems like nature has given us everything we need for giving and receiving pleasure. Nevertheless, sex toys aren't completely without their uses...
 
They can, for example, allow you to spice up your sex life in an original way. Used as an extension of your hand, they can be introduced into your sex life in a sensual, complementary manner.
 
For those who are really resistant to sex toys, ask yourself whether it's a real rejection or fear of the unknown?
 
Usage advice

- It's important that the sex toy remains a toy, as its name indicates. It shouldn't become essential for your lovemaking sessions.
 
- Don't see it as a rival to your partner's penis. It's not there to try and equal him, instead, it's there to stimulate parts of your body differently.
 
Tips
 
- Speak about it with your partner. Ask him what he thinks about sex toys and if they appeal to him. You might be surprised by his reaction! Asking him to use it on you or as an additional stimulant can be empowering and pleasurable.
 
- When it comes to sex toys, there is a plethora of choice these days! It's up to you to choose the one you like the most. If you've never tried one before, go for a flexible, small and funny one to break the ice gently.
