The benefits of sex toys for couples
A shared orgasm is arguably one of the greatest joys of sex, and yet surprisingly few heterosexual couples manage to hit the high notes together every time they have sex. In a 2016 study, only 46% of women reported nearly or always reaching orgasm when they got it on, compared to over 90% of men.
There are a number of proven benefits to enjoying a simultaneous orgasm – for one thing you can share in that glorious sex afterglow at the same time, promoting bonding and intimacy. Studies have also shown that this sexual 'glow' can last for up to 48-hours after you get jiggy, and the stronger the bond the better the connection in the long-term, so investing in couple's sex toys that you can use together is actually good for your relationship!
