Self-pleasure, self-love, flicking the bean, jerking off, playing with peter, petting the kitty – yes, I’m talking about good ole masturbation.
There are so many names for the solo act, yet a multitude of people still think of it as their dirty secret. Their secret shame. Personally, I like it’s given name. Although I, too, once felt weird to tell the truth of what happens behind my locked bedroom door, I now proudly proclaim to all that lend their ears that I “Netflix & Chill” with myself on a fairly regular (daily) basis.
Sex toys and pleasure products still remain a controversial topic. Some people are completely turned off and intimidated by the idea because they think using such technology is unnatural or somehow a criticism on their own skills in the bedroom.
Others are totally in favor of anything sex toy related. So much so, they don’t even see using a Magic Wand during sex as kinky.
When you’re getting a sex toy for your lover, while it may be a gift for them, you know you’ll want to reap some of the benefits, too. Or, if you’re a really good friend to a couple – a really good friend – looking to help spice up their sex lives, you want to get a toy that both of them will appreciate.
Most pleasure products are either for men or for women, but there are a few out there that were made with any gender in mind (even if you don’t identify). So, whether you’re using it together, or taking turns (after cleaning, of course), a toy that anyone can use brings a whole new meaning to sharing is caring.
