If you’re in a long-term relationship, it’s easy to fall into a routine. The same date nights, the same positions in bed—it can get a bit boring after a while. But don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to spice up your love life and keep the fire burning in your relationship. One way is to start using sex toys. If you’re feeling hesitant about taking the plunge, we’ve got some tips on how to get started!
Take it Slow
Start by talking about fantasies and what turns you both on. Find out what kinds of sex toys your partner is already interested in or might be curious about. Taking this approach gives you the opportunity to explore different kinds of pleasure together, while also easing any potential anxieties they may have around using a sex toy. It’s important that both partners feel comfortable and safe when introducing any new form of sexual play.
Choose Quality Toys
When shopping for a sex toy, quality should be at the top of your list. Pay attention to materials used, design, and customer reviews before making a purchase. If possible, go for body-safe silicone toys as they are non-porous and easy to clean, which makes them much safer than other materials like plastic or jelly rubber. A high quality sex toy will last longer and provide better sensations during use.
Communicate & Experiment
Talk openly with your partner about their thoughts on using a sex toy in the bedroom. Ask questions about what kind of sensations they enjoy or if there are any areas where they would like more stimulation or pressure during intercourse or foreplay. After discussing what turns them on, experiment together with different settings and techniques until you find something that works for both of you.
Introducing sex toys into the bedroom can add new levels of excitement and exploration in any relationship—but it needs to be done carefully and respectfully so that everyone involved feels comfortable and safe throughout the process. Start off by taking things slow, choose quality products, communicate openly with each other, and experiment until you find something that works for both partners! You can then enjoy all the pleasures that come from exploring new ways to experience sexual pleasure together!
