So if you’re thinking about adding some toys into your routine, Dr. Jess has some great suggestions on how you can get started!
How to start the conversation?
- Have an open conversation with your partner about your interests and desires. You can’t expect them to read your mind, so make some time when you’re both relaxed to talk.
- Be positive and honest. You don’t want to come across that your sex life is boring. You want to reassure your partner that you’re interested in adding to your routine to enhance the experience for both of you.
- Connect the toy to something that your partner is already doing. As an example, if your partner knows how to touch your hot spots, suggest that vibration from a toy can be used to touching these spots.
What toys do you recommend for newbies?
Some men can feel intimated by toys, especially if they feel the toy is replacing them. Dr. Jess recommends starting with a toy that is less threating—something small that that doesn’t look like a penis is a good introductory toy. The We-Vibe Touch X Lay-On Vibrator and Massager is a versatile multi-purpose vibrators that can be used in a variety of ways on you and your partner.
Choose a toy that you can use together. There are lots of toys that are designed to be used during intercourse, Like the We-Vibe Chorus Couples Vibrator, that stimulates both you and your partner during intercourse.
