Sex toys are a lot of fun, but they aren't just for fun. They can help people discover aspects of their sexuality they weren't previously aware of, connect with their partners in new ways, and overcome sexual issues. Most good sex toys will give you a good time, but a select few will change your life.
"Sex toys can actually be a unique, and pleasurable, way to learn more about your body via stimulation and experimentation," Alicia Sinclair, CEO of b-Vibe and Le Wand, tells Bustle. "My goal when designing sex toys is to optimize pleasure through the product design and the resulting user experience. That means, before I begin to develop a product, I spend months researching not only the targeted area of stimulation, but also what users (or potential users) might know about those areas of the body."
In addition to teaching you about your body, experimenting with sex toys can provide insight into your preferences, your relationships, and even your personality. And if you're dealing with a medical problem, like urinary incontinence or anorgasmia, they can be godsends. Here are a few sex toys with the potential to change your sex life and your life as a whole.
