The subject of sex in the 21st century is unfortunately very taboo. Most people do not even want to talk about it or mention it even to their closest friends and some people even act like it does not exist. It is unfortunate because sex is natural and should be a part of everyone’s life. This is how we humans reproduce and it also brings physical satisfaction. There is nothing wrong with that. But, even though it is taboo, a lot of people do use adult toys.
The fact is that adult toys, sex dolls, sex books, and everything else in that segment can be very useful and fun, especially for older couples. It can bring that spark in a relationship that has been gone for years.
However, it is no secret that many people are not familiar with adult toys and are even ashamed to use them. There are a lot of myths and misconceptions surrounding these, but in the last couple of years, these subjects are becoming more “normal” and natural. To further help the cause, we decided to write this article and talk about those myths and get rid of those misconceptions.
1. Adult toys are for lonely people
The most common and the worst misconception or myth about adult toys is the fact that many believe these are made for lonely people. For people that cannot find a girlfriend or a boyfriend. For those that are without love during their entire lives.
However, that is far from the truth. Anyone can use these toys. If you want to spice up your love life with your husband or your wife, why not get a few of these sex tools that can make things more interesting?
It could be a vibrator, a dildo, a strap-on, or who knows what else. These days there are thousands and thousands of options.
Additionally, even if you are a lonely person, there is nothing wrong with using these adult toys to make your life a little bit interesting. Maybe you do not want to partner or you do not have the time right now. But, naturally, you have your sexual needs and you need to satisfy them.
Using your hands all the time can get boring, monotonous, and repetitive. It cannot bring the satisfaction you really need.
2. You can lose sensitivity if you use adult toys
This is another myth that a lot of women are afraid of. For some reason, many women believe that using poison vibrators could lead to reduced sensitivity of their private parts.
We understand where this comes from and it does make a bit of sense. For example, vibrators vibrate at very high speeds, a speed that a human could not achieve. If a male or female hand can stimulate the clitoris with two or three movements per second, the vibrator can do 100 of those movements and one second. Allowing the woman to have an orgasm in a matter of seconds rather than minutes.
So, naturally, women are scared that they might get adjusted to that incredible speed. But, that is not the case. Yes, your private parts can get a bit desensitized, but if you take a break from your vibrator for a week or two, you will get back your sensitivity in no time.
If you have ever felt the need to buy a toy for your pleasure, we suggest that you go ahead and do not worry about a thing.
This same logic can be found in men too. They believe if they use sex dolls with unrealistic proportions such as the ones that come with very large breasts, etc. For example, if you visit here, you will see that most of these sex dolls have very large attributes and “perfect proportions”.
This makes for an unrealistic view of the female body.
However, if you are afraid that you will get such an unrealistic view of the female body, the same solution can use that was used for the previous problem. Take a break from your sex doll, forget about it for a few days and you will get back to normal.
3. Your partner’s need for a sex toy implies that you cannot satisfy them
This is another myth and misconception that we have to get rid of. Just because your partner wants to implement a toy in your sex life, does not matter whether they are a man or a woman, that does not mean that there is something wrong with you. It does not mean that you do not have the ability to satisfy them.
In fact, it could be the exact opposite. It means that your partner has a lot of fun in the bedroom and they want to make it even more interesting. Personally, I would take it as a compliment.
And, of course, if you do not like the idea, you do not have to force it. Get one vibrator or sex doll, try it out and if you do not like it, you can always forget about it.
4. Adult toys replace the need for a partner
After surfing around the Internet for a couple of hours, reading about what people have to say about adult toys, it seems like a lot of people are afraid that they will lose their love/lust for partners after getting used to adult toys.
That is not the case, no matter how good that toy will satisfy you. Yes, it is going to feel good, but it will never compare to a real human being. No matter how realistic your sex doll is, it is still just plastic or some other skin-like material. It is impossible to feel any kind of warmth, love, or other feelings from this object.
So, no, this toy will not replace your need for a boyfriend or a girlfriend.
Like I mentioned previously, sex is taboo, especially when it comes to adult toys. But, we hope that with this article we are going to make things get a little bit better and that you will be confident enough to buy a sex toy for yourself in the future.
