Sex Toys for Couples
If you're interested in trying a toy that can benefit both you and your partner, you're in luck. From penis rings to vibrators, there are a number of toys on the market these days that can be used seamlessly during sex to enhance both of your sensations. By providing dual stimulation that both you and your partner can feel, these products help bring you closer to your partner and allow you to experience a new level of pleasure. A popular choice is the rabbit sex toy.
Waterproof Sex Toys
Your intimate action doesn’t need to be confined to the bedroom. Talk to your partner about exploring with toys in a new, wet locale. If you decide to explore the shower or bath, you'll need a toy that can withstand water. A number of toys are actually waterproof. Check the label before you buy to determine if the product can get wet, and whether or not it can be submerged if you'd like to use it in the bath.
Discreet Sex Toys
Looking for something you can take on your romantic getaway for two? You want something small and discreet, yet something strong enough to withstand the inevitable wear and tear on your luggage. A vibrator that discretely charges in a USB port is a great toy option for jet-setter couples.
Sex Toy Aesthetics
If you feel sex toys just look too sexual for your taste, that’s totally okay – don’t rule them out just yet. Speak to your partner about some more discreet options that both of you would feel comfortable with. Many toy makers are actually creating sleeker, quieter, and more futuristic designs to take the potential awkward factor out of your standard vibrator. Remember, using toys in the bedroom shouldn’t be only about the physical experience, but rather just another way you and your partner connect further.
