You can explore toys and wellness products on your own, or invite your partner(s) to be part of the experience. 


Sex toys can add novelty to intimacy 


Sex doesn’t have to be stagnant. One of the amazing things about sex is the ability folks have to get creative and try new things. For those in long term,, monogamous relationships, keeping intimacy fresh and exciting is something many couples need to prioritize in order to maintain a fulfilling sex life. Sex toys are a great way to introduce some new forms of pleasure. 


Exploring pleasure through toys can improve your self esteem 


When you have a healthy and loving relationship with your body, it can be great for your self-esteem. One way to foster a loving relationship with your body is through sexual pleasure. Your body is an amazing vessel and allowing yourself to delve into pleasure whether with a sexual partner or during solo sex is one way you can show your body you love and appreciate it.
