Are you looking for ways to spice up your sex life?
One of the best recommendations is to purchase a new sex toy. Sex toys can be a great way to enhance your current sex life or add a new element to it, like introducing anal sex to your relationship or finding new oral sex techniques.
However, for some, convincing your partner to try a sex toy can be an obstacle.
For some, the idea of a sex toy can be intimidating. He or she might have unfounded fears about sex toys and it can be important for you to communicate with your lover. Not only letting them express their fears, but trying to work past them.
Here are five ideas to introduce sex toys to your partner for a hotter sex life:
1. Plan for fun.
It’s called a sex “toy” after all, right? Remind your partner that a sex toy is just something to keep your sex life fun and light-hearted. A sex toy can introduce you to new positions and new ways of having sex, and be a fun gadget that you share together…and the incredible orgasms you can get with a great sex toy are a happy perk, too!
2. Start slowly.
You don’t need to break out one of the most advanced sex toys on the market right away. Instead, look to the simple things that will introduce the idea of sex toys to your sex life. Surprise your lover with an all-natural massage oil. This simple addition can be fun for both of you and open up the conversation about getting more sexual aids into the bedroom (or wherever you love to have sex together!)
3. Shop together.
Go online and look through a catalog of sex toys together. When you go direct to upscale websites like BetterSex.com, you can look at a variety of toys and talk about what interests both of you, what you’d love to try, etc. You might be surprised where the conversation leads you. Just having the conversation in the first place can help both parties feel more confident in their sex life together, which can be a huge turn on itself.
4. Get something you can share.
There are a number of sex toys that can be used by both partners at the same time. Look for a penis ring that also has a vibrator in it. Try a vibrator that stimulates him while pleasing the woman as well. Or perhaps look for something that stimulates both the clitoris and G-spot on the woman or the prostate for the man. Whatever your need, there’s a toy to accommodate it.
5. Talk about it.
If you want to have a great sex life, talking about what turns you on and what toys you might like can be a great way to not only improve your sex life, but also improve your relationship. When you have better communication, you will see the excitement in the bedroom ratchet up a few notches as well!
