Benefits Of Sex Toys

Sleep

Feel the need to sleep after a good session (both solo and partnered)? 


That's because both masturbation and sex release oxtoycin and endorphin, which help you feel more relax. With the use of sex toys, not only will you be able to orgasm much easier but you'll also be able to sleep more soundly which will improve your quality of life! 


How To Use And Take Care Your Sex Toys


Lube


Making sure everything is lubed up is key when using sex toys to make it more pleasurable and to eliminate uncomfortable rubbing, chafing or pain. But it is even more important to know which kind of lube to use depending on the material of your sex toy.  


Silicone lube is a great option as it is long-lasting, slippery and meant for longer sessions. However, silicone lube can also interact with silicone sex toys and melt them! To prevent this, you should only use water-based lubricant when using silicone sex toys. 


You should also avoid getting or using lube that contains parabens and glycerin as it is possible that they can affect your hormonal levels. 


Cleaning


You should always aim to be as hygienic as possible when it comes to using and cleaning your sex toys. If not properly cleaned and dried, sex toys run the risk of being a petri dish for bacteria. 


Before and after using it, clean your sex toy with a gentle antibacterial soap, making sure to water it thoroughly to ensure all soap is removed. You should let your sex toy air dry to avoid a build up of residue and lint. 


While most sex toys can be cleaned in this fashion, you should always consult the manufacturer's instructions before cleaning. Take special note of your product's specification. Sex toys that are not waterproof cannot be submerged in water and require you to take out the batteries first before cleaning. 


If you're looking for something easy to clean and maintain, avoid buying porous sex toys as their sponge-like texture makes them one of the harder toys to clean. Non-porous sex toys made out of stainless steel, silicon or borosilicate glass are recommended for their easy maintenance. 


Sometimes Sharing Isn't Caring


While the sharing of sex toys isn't necessarily encouraged, there might be instances where you're using it with a partner. This makes thorough cleaning before and after even more important. 


If your sex toys is improperly cleaned or stored, it is possible that the transmission of various STDs could occur. To be safe, you should always sterlize your sex toy before using and sharing it with someone else. 


Follow your manufacturer's instructions on the sterilization process, as the material of each sex toy is different and requires different care. 


When sharing a sex toy with a partner, it always recommended that you use a condom on the toy to prevent the spread of STDs. You should replace the condom with a new one before swapping.
