Pandemic life and lockdowns have made us realise how important selfcare and self-love is. A sex toy can help you bring intimacy, pleasure, and discovery into a once-boring self-care routine.
Be open, embrace variety, and add some lube to your toy play –once you have your favourites, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without them.
With a predicted annual growth rate of 8.04% each year until 2028* the industry has finally shifted the dial and changed the societal conversation around masturbation, self-pleasure, and reducing the orgasm gap between men and women. Well overdue!
You aren’t alone in making pleasure a priority. In 2020, the global sex toy market was valued at $33.64 billion* (USD). It’s time to have a remove all stigma and enjoy masturbation, sexual wellness, and self-love.
It’s time to bring a toy into play. Explore yourself solo, with a partner, or multiple partners and reach new sexual heights together.
Right, where do I start?
If you’re new to the world of sex toys and haven’t used them before there’s a whole heap of choice out there to allow you to discover some new erogenous zones. If you don’t know where to start, here’s a quick guide to help you choose.
Personally, we’re huge fans of the toy range from SKYN®. All SKYN® intimate toys are expertly designed to provide maximum sensual pleasure. They have options for every body, for solo and partnered play – bullets, clitoris stimulators, male masturbators, and much more – it all depends on what floats your boat. And they’re available right here from us.
Toys love water-based lube
As practice makes pleasure perfect, get to know yourself on a deeper level by adding a water-based lubricant when enjoying your favourite silicone sex toy.
Water-based lubricants are free of any smell, taste or colour and are non-staining (ensuring no marks on your sheets!). LifeStyles® water-based products are easy to use and wash off with no leftover residue. Generally, these lubes are light and smooth on your skin – and to the touch. They are suitable for use with any sex toy and won’t impact the materials.
Silicone on silicone? Big ‘no-no’!
Silicone-based lube is not a good match for silicone sex toys as they can affect their longevity and possibly destroy them in the long run. Nobody wants a deteriorating material near or inside their body!
And don’t forget to spoil yourself in the pleasure journey. Candles, music, and relax in your own space. Nobody knows your body better than you do – so start to get to know things even more.
