The Beginner’s Guide to Sex Toy Shopping as a Couple
Couples who have been together for ten years will still blush and stutter trying to express their most secret fantasies. Deciding that you and your partner are going to invest in some quality sex toys is amazing. For many people, it’s the first step to a happier, more intimate, and more sexually fulfilled part of their relationship. It can also be overwhelming for those without experience, however. Here’s what to do so you can have the best sex toy shopping experience possible.
Talk about What You Want Going In
Before you even open a catalog, walk into a store, or click to a website you and your partner should have a talk about what you want. If you keep it vague there are apt to be surprises along the way. “Spice things up” can mean different things to different people.
Pay Attention to What Your Partner Doesn’t Say
It’s important to note that these conversations can be awkward. Sometimes people get excited thinking that their sexual fantasy is going to come true and they don’t stop and consider how much it looks like their partner is really into an idea.
Before you rush into a purchase, make sure that it’s something that your partner really wants.
Also, when you’re thinking of things to explore, watch for something that it looks like your partner is too shy to ask for. If certain kinks make them blush and stammer, consider asking for it yourself (if it’s something that you’re also eager to try).
These kinds of conversations can be tough, but usually it’s pretty obvious if the idea of something turns someone on.
Set a Budget Before You Begin
Sex toy shopping can get expensive fast. Rather than promising to buy whatever your partner wants, set a budget. Each of you put up a certain amount of cash and know that you can’t exceed that amount.
It will make it a lot easier for you to find something frisky but affordable at the outset. If you’ve found that you really enjoy a cheaper toy, save up for the more expensive version.
Sex is a huge part of couples’ intimacy. By setting out to broaden horizons and increase pleasure together, couples enjoy their fantasies and their real relationships more.
