Toys can make everything about sex more fun. There’s a lot to look forward to if you’ve never tried them. But if you’re thinking about trying sex toys (or maybe you already have a sizable collection), we suggest talking to your partner(s) first.
If your sex life needs some buzz, a vibrator will definitely bring it. The real trick is figuring out which kind works best for you. It can get confusing because there are so many shapes, sizes, configurations, and price tags. Vibes are mostly designed to get women off — and the word on the street is they work like a charm — but there are guy-oriented models that go safely into the anus to stimulate the prostate.
Dildos can be large or small, hard or squishy, and every color of the rainbow. Some vibrate and include attachments for extra-sexy stimulation. They are designed for penetration, but, of course, it’s not required. Sometimes it feels great to just rub the dildo against certain sensitive body parts.
One thing to keep in mind with dildos is that just like real dicks, they can damage the tender tissues of the anus which can increase the risk of HIV transmission for the receptive partner. Our recommendation: Get the squishy, smooth dildos as they’re less likely to damage your beautiful buns.
To some, sex toys are unknowns and can creep them out. Others think their fingers, lips, hands, and tongue are all the sex toys they need. Breaking out your sex toys without talking about it first can send some lovers running for the door like they’re suddenly competing in a 100-meter dash. It’s important to never play without asking for permission.
It’s also a good idea to keep them clean so you don’t chance either of you getting an STI or another type of infection. Other than that, there’s not a whole lot to worry about.
But wait, what about HIV?
Can’t sex toys spread HIV?
Simple answer: NO
