Using sex toys is nothing new, and the first recorded use of them goes all the way back to Ancient Greece. Using a sex toy isn’t just about trying something new, it is vital tool when it comes to learning more about your own body.
There is no greater way to learn about what turns you on, makes you feel good and, more importantly, orgasm than spending some time with a toy of your choice. For men, studies suggest that masturbation decreases the risk of prostate cancer, and for women, it can ease body aches and menstrual cramps. Plus, it sets you up for a great sleep.
But despite all this sex toy positivity being sprinkled around, there is still a taboo around using sex toys that stops us from openly talking about it. What’s more, there is still a stigma attached to masturbation with unique issues for both men and women.
The best way to tackle this taboo is by talking about the use of sex toys more openly with partners or our friends. Only by discussing our sexual preferences can we reinforce that this is a normal behavior, and also unlock more great orgasms. So go ahead and enjoy.
