Sex toys don’t have to just be solo-specific—they can be a tremendous addition to many couples’ sexytimes!
What is your first thought of “a sex toy in use?” Did you immediately picture a hot, solo session?
For many people, sex toys are considered self-love selections—the lovers you bring out when you’re on your own. They are the most trusted hook-up you can wish for!
The thing is, while sex toys have long been associated with masturbation, they’ve never been restricted to solo use. However, since the connotation of sex toy = self-pleasure is so strong, some folks have parked their toys securely in the solo zone.
In reality, sex toys don’t have to just be solo-specific—they can be a tremendous addition to many couples’ sexy-times!
Bringing a sex toy into bed can revolutionize your sex life by adding new physical sensations as well as increased communication and intimacy.
Check out these five factors that make your couple's toy experiences great!
1. Sparks the Conversation
The key to any great sexual relationship is communication. Being able to openly discuss your desires, your likes, your dislikes and your boundaries is fundamental to establishing and maintaining a connection that is full thrills and chills.
The first step in buying a couple’s sex toy is communicating. You have to check out what is available and have some sexy conversations about what you find.
So, how does that conversation go? Where do you start? Well, you’re talking about sex, so the main factors are pleasure and intimacy. What kind of pleasure are you both looking for? What turns each of you on? What are each of you not interested in?
While you’re talking through what your ideal couple's sex toy might look like, check out some trusted sites, look up reviews and, if possible, visit a sex shop that carries toys you can touch and look at.
2. It’s Got The Look
The aesthetics of sex toys have come a long way in the past twenty years. In the past, the design of sex toys was often pretty narrow. Vibrators looked like plain, hard tubes and dildos were poor artistic renditions of penises. As sextech evolved, toys were bedazzled with rotating beads, vibrating tendrils and buttons galore. They achieved more of a sci-fi alien buzz to them.
Now, if these are your jam, great! However, as companies started to consider couples of different sexualities, they realized the look and feel of sex products needed a makeover.
While there will also be people who are turned on by realistic, futuristic or fantastical looking sex toys, a safer bet when purchasing as a couple is to seek out toys that are visually appealing for both people.
Many couples' toys feature smooth lines and discreet shapes that prioritize function over fetish. These qualities give toys an inclusive look that can be sexy for everyone.

3. How Will We Use It?
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty: what do you want your couple's sex toy to do for the two of you? What sensations do you both want to enjoy? How do the two of you have sex and how can the two of you shimmy a sex toy into this equation?
A great place to start is by checking out two of the most versatile couples' sex toys: insertable vibrators and vibrating cock rings. These two types of products can used in conjunction with penises, dildos, strap-ons and more! Consider these possibilities!
An insertable vibrator can stimulate one person’s G-spot or prostate internally and their clitoris or perineum externally, while at the same time, provide amazing sensations for a penis that is penetrating a vagina or anus. If you’re using a dildo or strap-on, the external vibrator can provide sensation back to the body of the person using it.

On the other hand, a vibrating cock ring is all about external pleasure and can be used to stimulate the clitoris, vulva, anus, penis, scrotum, perineum and any combination of the above!
