Come in and Play: Exploring Toys

By Brethren

When we were kids, getting to know the world meant that we get to explore the different range of sensations through play. From blowing raspberries and playing peek-a-boo; as we grew older we began to make use of toys to extend our imagination to the real world. We thus expand the limits of our play space to have fun with our playmates. As we mature, our view of fun and play changes and same goes with the toys we fancy. Seeking pleasure, be it cognitive, emotional or sexual, is human nature. Having a sex-positive attitude greatly helps in acknowledging the fact that satisfying our sexual needs is part of a healthy lifestyle.

A Whole New World With Sex Toys

As we begin to explore a new world of play, it’s normal to feel a bit overwhelmed with the options available. We can use sex toys regardless of our sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression. After all it’s up to the us how we want to play. It's important to note that we are starting to get to know a new part of ourselves, so it may take time to get comfortable with the idea of using toys to enhance pleasure.

As someone who’s currently single, you may be interested in items such as erogenous zone stimulators and vibrators, penetrable and penetrative molds, or even blood retention toys.

For those with a partner who want to be more adventurous, there are even more options! Cuffs, neck chokers, ticklers and whips, rope, and sex furniture can be great options to spice things up in the bedroom. However, stimulators, vibrators, and masturbators work well for foreplay as well.

Using Sex Toys for the First Time in Forever?

Knowing what you want will aid you in choosing the right toys for you. First timers? No need to worry, we asked Love365 for their Top 3 pick for beginners, whether they be for personal use or for sharing.

 The Massage Wand. Unsure if you’re ready for penetration? Are you interested in a whole different sensation? The Massage Wand is an external vibrator which stimulates the adjacent erogenous areas such as the vagina or the underside of the testicles for alternative pleasure. You can use it by yourself to explore your different body sensations, or you can try it on your partner before you move on to penetrative activities.

Cute-Sized Dongs. Sometimes, big things come in small packages. These dongs might look cute and small, but they’re highly effective. These are recommended for people who have just started trying out penetration. It’s great practice to prepare for a partner’s bigger package.

Masturbator Cups. Mainly for people who want to do the penetrating, it comes in a variety of different designs and containers. It’s easy to find one that fits your fantasy and discreet! You might even mistaken it for one of your tumblers.
