Whilst it might not be as wet or wild as a water-based escapade, or a threesome, a new sex toy is a go-to for spicing things up. There's a strap-on, ring, or wand out there for every kind of couple, whether you're looking to expand your nightstand collection or you're brand new to sex toys altogether. When shopping for a sex toy, it's important to remember they aren't only for penetrative stimulation. Never underestimate the power of foreplay, or a spontaneous toy massage. You'd be surprised how many nonpenetrative ways you can stimulate your partner using a vibrator!
Some people might cringe, or even feel inferior, at the thought of using a robotic assistant on their partner, but Eddie Marklew, a sex expert at TENGA, tells POPSUGAR that adult toys shouldn't be viewed in such a close-minded way. "Sex toys should not be viewed as a replacement for sex, but a way to make pleasure better," they tell us. "Just as we sleep right, eat well, and take care of our bodies, masturbation and sex toys should be another part of our self-care routine and a great way for couples to explore their sexuality."
Marklew continues: "Using couples sex toys is a great tool to help build trust and intimacy in a relationship, as well as add excitement and variety to one's sex life. Sex toys can do things our bodies can't, like pulse and vibrate and thus can open up entirely new realms of pleasure for everyone involved." Nonetheless, it's still important to speak to your partner about their likes, and dislikes. "Communication is key but by using toys, couples can experiment with different sensations and learn what things they might enjoy," says Marklew.
Whatever you and your partner are in the market for, we've found lots of options ranging in price, shape, speed levels, vibration patterns, and more. Shop items like handcuffs, double-ended dildos, and remote-control toys to take your sex life to new pleasurable heights.
