Even if your between-the-sheets time needs a kick-start, there’s exactly zero shame bundled into using these products. (And if you’re a first-timer looking for some rookie tips, we’ve got a helpful guide for getting into sex toys.)
Here’s why you should care about bringing sex toys into the bedroom, even if everything’s [mind-exploding emoji]: because she’ll enjoy herself more. A 2017 study noted that 37 percent of women need clitoral stimulation (and not just penetration) to reach the summit of Mt. Orgasm. Adding a vibrator to the mix proves you know how the female body works, and that you’re as turned on by her pleasure as you are by her body. It proves you’re confident, and adventurous, and an all-around thoughtful sex-haver.

Check out a variety of tested-and-proven toys—from vibrators that double as high-end jewelry to prostate pleasurers— and give your bedroom the gift of some truly ear-shattering orgasms.
