We all have our fantasies, and when it comes to pleasure and sex–there are no boundaries at all. Then may it be a make-out sesh at the beach or using a certain kind of sex toy–you can experiment any which way that you like. 

Talking about sex toys, we’re sure that you would have given vibrators a chance. After all, thanks to films like Fifty Shades of Grey and Lust Stories we have a sense of acceptance when it comes to sex toys like vibrators. 

In fact, according to Raj Armani, co-founder of IMbesharam, the demand for sexual wellness products is increasing amongst women.  

But it’s not just about the pleasure – you’ll be glad to know that there are some health benefits to using sex toys too–both physical and mental.  

So, before any further ado, let’s unveil the five benefits that you can reap by using sex toys:

1. Yes to sex toys means zero chances of STDs
Well, this is no rocket science. As there is no human intervention in this self-service, therefore, the chances of contracting viruses like HPV, HIV, and so on are almost zero. But ensure that you regularly sanitize your toys to avoid the risk of a bacterial infection.

2. Using a sex toy can bring you and your partner closer
If you are having trouble in paradise then give sex toys a chance to patch things up for you. According to a study published in Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy using a sex toy can increase intimacy amongst the partners.

Here’s another fun fact: If the idea of being naked gives you jitters then using a sex toy can actually help you gain some confidence. The study also suggests that using a sex toy can reduce anxiety and help you communicate better with your partner.

3. Sex toys can be a saviour when you are stressed
Masturbation and sex, there is one common thread between the two and that’s release of endorphins – the feel-good hormone. This hormone not just makes us feel calm but it also helps in the reduction of headaches that’s caused due to real-life situations.
