"The days of viewing sex as taboo are well and truly over!"


Medical benefits

Everyone knows that sex toys are great for pleasure. But what you didn’t know is that sex toys can achieve great health benefits for women.

According to American medical scholar Rachel Maines, vibrators were used to medically treat hysterical women since the early 20th century. During the 1970’s, only 1% of women owned a vibrator. Fast-forward to today and nearly 55% of women own or have used female sex toys! The days of viewing sex as taboo are well and truly over!

There are various medical benefits to using sex toys. They can not only alleviate pain and discomfort but also bring about living a much healthier lifestyle. Sex toys are known to greatly help with a condition called vaginismus, menopause and also overall sexual health.

Vibrators can be better dilators for vaginismus. (Vaginismus, is a condition that affects a woman's ability to engage in vaginal penetration, including sexual intercourse, manual penetration, insertion of tampons or menstrual cups, and the penetration involved in gynaecological examinations, or pap tests). Women's health physiotherapist Michelle Lyons encourages her sexual health patients to use a vibrator with their recovery from vaginismus/dyspareunia. Low frequency vibrations can have a sedating effect for the pelvic floor muscles. She also says, sometimes, vibrators bring more significant help than a standard dilator.

As for menopause, the dropping of hormone oestrogen levels may cause vaginal tightness, dryness and atrophy. But vibrators can help improve elasticity and strength of vaginal walls. Sex toys are also widely used in gynaecological surgery recovery, especially after childbirth. It helps strengthen the vaginal tissue and stimulation increases blood circulation in the area to accelerate healing.

Based on a study from Kinsey Institute, women who use vibrators are likely to maintain more regular gynaecological appointments and gain higher levels of desire, arousal, and orgasm. As we all know, orgasm can help reduce the risk of breast cancer. Meanwhile, it helps ease anxiety and lowers the rate of depression. Nothing like some self pleasure to lower those stress levels!

Orgasm/ Climax

 A study in 2009 found that without the assistance of a toy or manual stimulation, almost three quarters of women had no orgasm during sex and nearly a quarter of women never experience orgasm at all. A toy like a massager or a clitoral stimulator like The Womanizer can greatly increase a woman’s chances of climax.

What’s more sex toys can aid in sexual dysfunction. Using relaxing toys with stimulation features, massage oils and candles are always helpful for women suffering from low libido.

Whether you’re stressed out, suffering from sexual dysfunction or low libido, or are just horny and looking to spice up your sex life, sex toys can be a helper, a curer and a friend.

Whether for pleasure or health purposes, sex toys should be an essential part of every healthy woman’s life.
