That’s right–today, we are discussing the many benefits of sex toys.
The Wide World of Sex Toys
In the United States, 78% of Americans over 18 reported owning at least one sex toy in 2022. “Sex toys” is a broad term that we use to label any accessory that is used during sexual interactions, either solo or with others. Since this is the case, you might not realize just how many different sex toys are on the market. There are all kinds of sex toys designed to offer different forms of stimulation and use cases, empowering you to define your sexual preferences on your own terms.
Common Sex Toys Include:
- Clitoral Stimulators

The Long List of Perks that Come with Using Sex Toys
When you invest in a sex toy, you are not just investing in a device. You are investing in an experience–and quite a few benefits alongside it. Let’s take an up-close look at the benefits sex toys offer and how they support your sexual health.
1. It’s Easier to Climax
Obviously, a lot of people enjoy sex because of the grand finale that comes with it, but many people need a little help getting there. Bedbible’s State of Sex Toys 2022 found that 75% of women cannot reach orgasm through standard sexual intercourse. In most cases, they need a little boost to get them where they need to go. Sex toys can offer that boost.
Since sex toys are designed to help you enjoy yourself, they tend to make it a lot easier to get where you want to go. You can choose toys that specifically offer the sensation or use case that you need to climax and enjoy yourself. For a lot of people, this is a really empowering narrative shift!
2. It’s a Safe Way to Play
Protecting your sexual health is one of the most important things you can do and using sex toys is a great way to go about it. If you keep your sex toys clean between uses, they are a very safe way for you to achieve sexual gratification and have a little fun without putting yourself at any additional risk.
Sex toys can also be a wonderful solution for couples or group dynamics where sexually transmitted diseases are a consideration. Most doctors recommend exercising abstinence prior to treatment or during outbreaks, and sex toys allow you and anyone with you to continue to play without the risk of transmission.
3. Sex Toys Are Perfect for Solo Play, Partner Play, and Group Play
The versatility of sex toys makes them a natural enhancer for any kind of sexual dynamic. You can comfortably use sex toys alone with solo play, and a lot of us love the convenience that they bring. Sex toys can also be a great part of a healthy sexual dynamic where a partner isn’t feeling up to shared sexual experiences.
Couples all around the world are using sex toys to spice up their sexual interactions and have a little fun. Some use sex toys to set the mood or as foreplay, while others prefer to incorporate all kinds of toys into the entire sexual experience. No matter what you want to bring to your dynamic, there is a sex toy that can help.
Sex toys can also offer these same benefits during group play, creating a more intense and fun interaction between everyone involved. Just remember, most experts agree that toys shouldn’t be shared and should always be cleaned between scenes and uses.
4. You Can Learn About Your Body
Understanding your body and sexual needs can be a freeing process, but it doesn’t always feel easy. You might not be able to find a compatible partner, or you might not feel completely comfortable being vulnerable with others in certain instances. By using sex toys, you can safely explore new sexual interests and create an experience that matches your preferences. This can also be used to experiment with sexual partners too!
5. Sex Toys Can Set a Scene
For the longest time, the use of any sex toy was considered kinky. Now, so many sex toys are on the market that kinkiness has been completely redefined. When you use sex toys, you can create a scene and live out your desires–and maybe even a few you never knew you had!
From handcuffs and whips to anal beads and bondage, there are plenty of products on the market to help you make a scene to explore your every desire. Submit, dominate, or live out dynamic sex scenes with the right tools to make it feel as real as possible.
