how many guys own a sex toy
I have to admit, I probably raised a few eyebrows when a few weeks ago, I told my friends that a growing number of guys own a sex toy. Yeah, that’s right – a “toy” that brings pleasure. It’s not that I’m embarrassed to admit that I know a thing or two about them, it’s just that it’s not really a common topic of conversation, so it catches a few people off guard.
As you can imagine, a lot of guys felt a bit embarrassed talking about the topic – I guess maybe because it challenges traditional gender roles, or just because it’s a little bit taboo. But I’m here to tell you – don’t be embarrassed! These toys can be really helpful in a lot of ways.
For starters, it can help guys explore their own sexuality without having to worry about performance. It can increase sexual responsiveness and make it easier to experience different kinds of pleasure. Plus, it doesn’t just have to be a solo thing – it can actually create some intense moments with your partner.
As I started to talk to my friends about the topic more, I started to pick up on more subtle reasons why guys own sex toys. Some said it was to better understand the female experience – and I think that’s a really interesting perspective. It brought home the idea that guys should be more open to understanding each other.
There are so many options when it comes to sex toys – from vibrators to dildos to cock rings. And then there are the lubricants, gels, and other accessories that can really make sex even better. I think that this is something that goes beyond just toying around – it’s about wanting to feel pleasure and have a good time.
Another perspective I’ve heard from some of my guy friends is that they just enjoy the feeling of being wanted – having a toy that makes them feel desired. It gives them a sense of control when it comes to their own pleasure and it’s kinda empowering.
And then there’s the idea that there is something inherently sexual about sex toys. It can be a way to connect on a deeper level, and it can be really intimate. The idea of having something that’s just between you and your partner, that no one else knows about, can be incredibly satisfying.
But what I think I hear most often – and what became really clear after chatting with my friends – is that sex toys can be really freeing. Frustration with conventional sex roles and gender stereotypes means that having the chance to explore and experiment with a partner can be incredibly exciting. Plus, when it comes to sex, there should never be any shame in wanting more.
Finally, a lot of guys are now using sex toys out of sheer curiosity. There’s a whole world of sensations to explore and the options are often so varied. From high tech toys that have all kinds of advanced features, to more traditional options, the possibilities are truly endless.
So now that we’ve talked about why so many guys are deciding to invest in sex toys, let’s dive a bit deeper and explore a few creative ways to bring sex toys into the bedroom.
One way to make things interesting is to incorporate a toy into foreplay. For example, using a vibrator to send teasing vibrations along your partner’s body. Or having them use a blindfold to surprise and titillate their senses. The variations here are endless – but all of them exciting.
You can also use sex toys to really up the intensity of sex. By stimulating two pleasure points at the same time – say the clitoris and G-spot – a partner can take things to a whole new level. Plus, before you know it, you’ll be discovering all kinds of new ways to experience pleasure.
And of course, there are plenty of solo sex options out there – and those toys can be used to make masturbation even more exciting. For example, using a pulsating toy that stimulates in a unique way. Or stimulating the prostate, for a completely different type of pleasure.
It’s also important to keep in mind that when it comes to sex toys, there’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach. Everyone’s pleasure points are unique, so you might have to try out a few toys before you find the one that really works for you. But that’s just part of the fun.
One thing is for sure – sex toys are here to stay. As more and more people become comfortable talking about the topic, more are turning to these toys to really explore their own pleasure. And there’s no shame in that – whatever gets you hot and bothered!
