1. Sex toys are for everyone, not just lonely single people.
One of the most negative myths about sex toys is that they’re just for single, or “lonely,” people who have no option but to use something with a battery. Wrong. People of all relationship statuses use sex toys. In fact, 78% of women who use them report being in a relationship. They’re also not just for straight women. There are plenty of toys out there for same-sex couples, as well as toys for men.

2. Sex toys make good sex lives better, not worse.
Another nasty rap and outdated notion is that sex toys are only for those whose sex lives are lacking. Wrong again. A recent study from the Kinsey Institute have found that women who use vibrators are more likely to keep regular gynecological appointments and experience “higher levels of desire, arousal, lubrication, and orgasm.”
3. Women not only benefit from sex toys — some women need them.
Getting a woman off is big business, and as women have orgasms only 64% of the time, it’s also important business. A 2009 study found that a whopping 75% of women do not orgasm during sex without the assistance of a toy or manual stimulation. The same study also found that 10-15% of women never achieve orgasm at all.
Toys like vibrators can change that. “I work with a lot of women who have never had an orgasm, and I tell them to purchase and experiment with a vibrator. Most women will be able to have their first orgasm thanks to the steadfast buzzing of their new toy,” sex therapist Vanessa Marin wrote in Bustle.
While the female orgasm doesn’t serve an evolutionary purpose quite like the male orgasm, it is does have some health benefits that all women need, on top of feeling good, of course. Orgasms are great for stress and depression, they can help lower the risk of breast cancer in both men and women, and even aid in curing the common cold. Orgasms allow women to have control not just over their pleasure, but over their health, too.
And while all sex toys are made to enhance the already pleasuring experience, certain products and companies really go above in the beyond the call of duty for women’s orgasms. Case in point: Alexandra Fine and Janet Lieberman of Dame Products, who have created Eva, the very first strap-free, hands-free vibrator meant to be worn during vaginal intercourse for maximum clitoral stimulation. Thanks to one small device, the wearer can focus on sex with her partner without giving up the opportunity for enhanced pleasure.
4. Sex toys can be be game-changers for couples.
Sex toy company PicoBong drew attention recently for unveiling what it claims to be the world’s first “gender-neutral sex toy,” the Transformer. While the unisex sales pitch is appreciated, sex therapist Vanessa Marin told Mic this isn’t the first toy that can be used by both sexes.

“The majority of [sex toys] can be used by either gender. Anal plugs and vibrators, restraints, whips, paddles, ropes, clamps, blindfolds and electrostimulation toys are all technically ‘gender neutral,'” Marin said. “There are also plenty of couples toys, like the We-Vibe, Lelo Tor, and Jimmyjane Hello Touch that are designed to be used together.”
