A study suggests that penis sleeves and prostheses, also known as strap-ons, can be used as substitutes to the real thing in case it’s difficult for a man to maintain an erection especially if his partner takes a long time to climax. The use of these sex toys is highly recommended by experts before considering penile implants.
- Using vibrators can help detect vaginal diseases
Women that use vibrators regularly are able detect health problems in their downstairs areas easier. Many women like to use vibrators during their solo play and with regular use they become very familiar with their bodies and can easily tell if something changed.

As you grow older, your sex drive also decreases. In men, testosterone decreases and in women, estrogen and progesterone decreases. These are the hormones that give us our sex drive. Using sex toys have shown to fire up your sex life and increase your sex drive.
- Enhance orgasm and pleasure
Most women fail to orgasm during penetrative sex without some kind of clitoral stimulation. Using toys like clitoral vibrators during foreplay can help women achieve an orgasm like never before. These toys include small bullet vibrators and rabbit vibrators.
Men can also enhance their orgasm by trying sex toys like prostate massagers. These toys can make both intercourse and masturbation more pleasurable.
- Boost sexual performance

Having regular sex has been proven to improve mental health. As humans, we need physical touch and love in order to maintain good mental health levels. If you’ve been with the same partner for a long period of time, it is not uncommon for the sexual spark to dwindle a little as time goes on. Regularly purchasing sex toys can bring back the spark and fire in your relationship. These toys can allow you and your partner to try different sex positions and experiments with each other’s bodies. Using sex toys also provide both of you something intimate to talk about. You can talk about which toys you want to try or even go sex toy shopping together.

Reaching orgasm can have significant effects to your body and soul, for both men and women. Taking a few minutes away from a busy work week to just enjoy yourself can definitely provide you with tons of happy vibes to survive.

Many women admit to having a more pleasurable orgasm through masturbation than with penetrative sex and this is where sex toys can greatly help. They shouldn’t be used as substitutes for their partners, but it is undeniable that toys like vibrators and dildos can effectively make women climax.
