There's no denying that the holidays are a very stressful time for a lot of us — and it's important to find ways to unwind and deal with holiday stress. "Most of us already have busy schedules but adding in holiday shopping, events, and travel can make it even more stressful and hectic," Dr. David Greuner, an NYC-based cardiovascular surgeon, tells Bustle. "Set aside days where you can relax and have time for yourself, and enjoy relaxing activities like yoga, reading, or a bubble bath." And those are all definitely great ways to relax — but there's another way that you might want to consider. If you really want to destress this holiday season, then setting aside some you time can be a lot of fun — and there's no stress reliever quite as fun as masturbating.
Masturbating is a great way to unwind, but it can feel awkward if you're home for the holidays. Footsteps in the hallway, family coming over — it's easy to feel like the whole house is constantly full of people. Luckily, there are plenty of quiet, discreet toys out there that mean you can have a lot of fun without getting caught. So if you are looking for a way to spice up the holidays without being awkwardly walked in on, here are some quiet sex toys that should do the trick. And the best part? They're all in the holiday sales — though many of the sales only last run for Black Friday or Cyber Monday, so you might want to get browsing.
This unassuming vibrator actually packs a big punch — but it's super discreet, easy to use, and perfect for beginners. It's a great way to blow off that holiday steam — and discounted for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Use the code STOREGASM for 25 percent off purchases starting at 8 p.m. on Thursday — or get an even bigger discount on Cyber Monday, using CUMAGAINSOON for 30 percent off.
