Sex Toys and their Popularity
As mentioned, Laura and Aladin fought over Laura’s sex toy, particularly a vibrator. Now, the N question is, how do sex toys impact a relationship?
The popularity of sex toys has increased during the past decade. According to research, the taboos that surround vibrators and other sex toys intended to increase mutual and individual pleasure are already dissolving. This is because more couples and individuals are reaching for a far more intimate type of technology.
Moreover, a large nationally representative study that is led by researcher Michael Reece, Ph.D., examined the popularity of the use of vibrators among heterosexual men in the US. They found out that heterosexual men who have already used a sex toy with their partners reported lower levels of satisfaction. This was compared to men who never used a sex toy with their partners. Of course, the researchers cannot say why the satisfaction level for men who used sex toys was lower.
However, most heterosexual men who have used vibrators with their partners said that it increased their partner’s pleasure. Considering this fact, it is possible that those men’s sexual satisfaction was unchanged by the introduction of a vibrator. Rather, it may have been lower, to begin with, and the use of vibrators only increased their level of satisfaction.
That being said, it may also be possible that some heterosexual men who have used vibrators with their partners felt as if having to use a sex toy reflected poorly on their very own sexual ability. If such is the case, then it would make sense why their sexual satisfaction level remained low.
Moreover, one of the most common misconceptions about sex toys is the belief that using a sex toy means your partner is not good enough in bed. This was according to Dr. Kat Van Kirk, Ph.D., a licensed marriage and family therapist, and resident relationship and sex expert at AdamandEve.com. He added that one partner may also fear that their partner’s use of sex toys will replace them. they also fear that their partner may become too dependent on sex toys to get arousal or orgasm.
However, not every man who uses a vibrator with their partner feels unsatisfied or inferior. Another research that Reece made found out that men who use vibrators regularly have higher measures of erectile function, sexual desire, as well as sexual satisfaction. This was compared to men who have never or rarely used a vibrator.
