The days when sex toys were considered strictly for women who were either single or had trouble reaching orgasm any other way are over. These days just about everyone, including men and couples, has discovered just how much a sex toy brings to the table.

In fact, it really doesn’t matter who you are or what you enjoy in bed. If you value your sex life and care about making it as enjoyable as possible, you’re someone who should consider keeping a good go-to toy on hand. Here’s a closer look at some of the most significant ways doing so will make life better.

1.      Toys can help you become more confident.

Your body and your mind aren’t as separate as you might think. Anyone who’s ever started working out or eating better knows that a healthier body inevitably leads to a healthier mind, as well. And you don’t just think more clearly and experience better brain function, either. You feel happier, and your confidence goes through the roof.

Many people experience something similar when they buy their first sex toy and make it a regular part of their routine. Yes, having better orgasms and more of them is part of it. But so is the way a sex toy helps you build a better relationship with your body and learn more about how you really like to like to be stimulated.

2.      Sex Toys can increase your libido.

Many people who still haven’t pulled the trigger on that first sex toy purchase are concerned that the toy will tank their libido. But as dedicated sex toy users can tell you, the opposite is actually true. The more sex you have (solo or otherwise), the more sex you tend to want to have, so a sex toy just may be the libido booster you’ve been looking for.

Both men and women who own sex toys and use them regularly tend to be more responsive sexually overall, as well. They experience higher degrees of passion and excitement when it comes to sex. They become more highly aroused more quickly, as well.

3.      Toys are great for your overall health.

Yes, adding a sex toy or two to your sexual repertoire can absolutely improve your mental health, mood, and overall outlook on life. But it’s great for your health in other ways, as well. To begin with, sexual activity of all kinds (including the type that’s just between you and your toy) is a form of exercise, so it delivers many of the same benefits, including increased stamina and strength.

People who make it a point to stay sexually active and satisfied also have lower blood pressure, better hormonal balance, and a lower risk of heart attack. Regularly masturbating or otherwise engaging in sexual activity to the point of orgasm can also help keep your pelvic floor strong. Not only does a strong pelvic floor mean stronger orgasms and better sex overall, but it will lower the likelihood of a person developing issues like incontinence later in life.

4.      Toys can keep your sex life spicy.

Sexual ruts happen to even the closest, happiest couples, and it’s not hard to understand why. Most people have a lot going on in their lives between work responsibilities, family duties, and their personal lives. It’s not always easy to find the time or energy to pour into your sex life when you’re tired at the end of the day. So you have sex when it occurs to you and stick primarily to what you already know works for both of you. Before you know it, you’re in a sexual rut.

Using toys together as a couple can be a fantastic way to keep sex fresh and exciting without having to rearrange the entire rest of your life together. Toys take the pressure off of both partners when it comes to giving an orgasm, receiving one, or both. They also introduce fun new sensations to the mix. Many couples enjoy using toys together so much that they decide to maintain an ongoing collection filled with goodies to turn to whenever the mood strikes.

5.      Toys can make your entire relationship stronger.

The health of a couple’s sex life goes hand in hand with the health of their overall relationship. So keeping things fresh, active, and intimate in the bedroom is one of the surest ways to strengthen your entire relationship.

Using toys together helps a couple start talking more freely about sex. They get more comfortable giving each other feedback, asking for what they need in bed, and bringing up new activities they’d like to try in the future. Shopping for new toys together helps facilitate this process even further.

And these are just a few of the ways adding even one toy to your ongoing repertoire can make your life better. So don’t be afraid to give it a try for yourself and discover a few more. You’ll be glad you did.
