Do you cringe anytime you hear about sex toys? Does it just not make sense to you because you think it is demonic or promotes lust? Are you a man who just hates the idea of owning sex toys because you assume that for your woman to own one, it simply sends a message that you are incompetent and cannot satisfy her sexual needs fully?
Several people out there do not see the essence of owning sex toys and even those interested in getting one aren’t able to come out openly to admit it because of the stigma associated. ‘Is she an addict?’
‘She’s a slut.’
‘Is he gay?’
‘If you start using sex toys, no man will be able to meet your sexual needs in the long run.’
Here in Ghana, there are a number of online sex toy shops and you will be surprised to learn that it is a booming business. Until you throw ignorance out of the window, you will never understand the essence of owning a sex toy. There are several types of sex toys out there: some for males, some for females and others for couples.
I will introduce you to the basic types and the next time you hear about sex toys, you won’t only have dildos, vibrators and, maybe, sex dolls coming in mind.
These are phallic shaped (shape of the penis). Some are made from glass, steel and wood. Others are made from silicone and the very realistic ones that feel like an actual human skin or penis are made from cyberskin.
In Ghana, there are local manufacturers of wooden dildos and they come in different sizes to suit anyone’s taste.
Dildos are basically for insertion into the vagina or anus during masturbation or sexual intercourse. They spice things up and are useful for men with small penises who aren’t able to reach the pleasure spots in the far end of the vagina. Having your woman’s needs in mind, you can get one big dildo and during sexual intercourse, after you’ve had an orgasm, you can use the dildo on her.
Also, just like the other sex toys, it benefits couples in long distance relationships. When the woman has the urge to have sex, instead of sleeping with another man, she gets her dildo and takes care of herself. What makes it fun is, she can actually do it while her husband or her man is watching via video call. It strengthens the bond between couples and no matter how far apart they are, they feel close.
TYPES OF DILDOS
- Double penetration dildos- for simultaneous insertion into the vagina and anus/ for lesbians.
- Strap-on dildos- for lesbians or heterosexual couples (anal penetration from the woman to man)
- Vibrating dildos
- Heating dildos (you can adjust the temperature)
These are sex toys that vibrate to stimulate the nerve endings and add extra sensations. Holding a vibrator against any part of the body feels good and it spices things up between couples. It also makes it easier for women to get orgasms and is usually prescribed for women with orgasmic dysfunction.
Women with orgasmic dysfunction never get orgasms during sex, so they tend to have unsatisfying sex lives and they do not see the essence of having sex aside giving pleasure to men and making them cum. Some have unsatisfying orgasms and others take too long to reach climax.
Using vibrators helps to correct that and experimenting with the different types out there makes sex fun for couples. Now, the most amazing part of using vibrators is the added benefit of making women squirt easily. Women let go easily with vibrators and if you know what you are doing, you will have her flooding the room with ‘water’ from her vagina. If this isn’t enough reason for you to want to get a vibrator, I don’t know what will make you want to get one.
