We all know how sex toys make you feel while you’re using them, but can they alter your level of happiness? Can they make you feel ecstatic? Can they give you a lasting impact that makes you feel as refreshed and energized as yoga, meditation, or exercise? According to science, the answer is a resounding yes!

Here are six ways to improve your life using only sex toys. It's really as simple as that.

Get More Sleep

There's a reason most of us feel so sleepy after those extra-hot climaxes. Oxytocin, one of the feel-good hormones released during orgasm, creates an overall feeling of relaxation and even sleepiness for some people. Orgasms also physically and emotionally release tension. Exhausting the body will help you fall asleep faster.

Try a strong, whisper-quiet vibe to help you enjoy powerful orgasms and the ultra-deep zzz’s afterwards.

Banish Binge Cravings

Carbs, alcohol - and orgasms. Why do they make you feel so darned good? Well, they all release feel-good endorphins called dopamine and serotonin into the body. These improve your mood and produce a sweet, natural high. However, of the three, only orgasms give you that feel-good euphoria in a way that won’t expand your waistline.

To maximize the belly-burning magic of orgasms, men and women can turn to toys that require physical activity: a hands-free toy or a vibrating cock ring to be used during sex are both perfect. Not only are users getting the feel-good euphoria boost that orgasm brings, but they’re also burning calories from the physical exercise.

Boost Creativity

Feeling burned out? We’ve all been there, but the key to coming up with big ideas at work might be to let your creative side run free … after-hours.

Adult play is noted to have a brain-rejuvenating effect on creativity. Sexy role play is no different. Whether you go with the classic "naughty nurse" scenario or some light dominance and submission play, lowering your inhibitions will silence the "inner editor" that’s been censoring your thoughts and ideas. You’ll be on your creative A-Game in no time.

Live Longer

Paging Dr. Feelgood! Regular sex is linked to creating higher levels of the antibody immunoglobulin A, which boosts the immune system.

For the sex toy version of 'an apple a day' reach for a classic vibrator, or a Rabbit-style squirmy for women, and a stroker for men. These sex toy classics are basic, reliable and always dependable for releasing the feel-good chemicals that help fight illness, depression, and other maladies.

Look Younger

Why get botox when you can just masturbate? DHEA, a youth-promoting hormone that is released within the body during orgasm, helps to produce shiny hair, a glowing complexion, and bright eyes. Plus, high-activity orgasm allows toxins to sweat out from the skin’s pores. This detoxifies the body and makes your skin physically glow.

Believe it or not, there are even pleasure products specifically designed to create an anti-aging effect. Now that’s a sexy Fountain of Youth.

Get Smarter

Studies have shown that there is a correlation between intelligence and an active sex life. Did you know that sexual activity can actually improve your cognitive functioning over time?

So, why not stimulate your body and your mind by keeping your pleasure varied and novel. A mix-and-match system of Ben-wa balls can help women strengthen their pubic muscles while prostate massagers help to strengthen a man’s PC muscles. Meanwhile, both of these products contribute to stronger, more powerful orgasms in the long run.
