4 Questions Seniors Have About Sex Toys

4 Questions Seniors Have About Sex Toys


Seniors have been around the block a time or two and don't need to learn much about sex - they've been doing it longer than the rest of us. But that doesn't mean that the times haven't changed, and many seniors are daunted by today’s sex toy market. Here's the answer to four questions seniors are often afraid to ask out loud, and a product for each that will help with any concerns.

  • How old is too old? You're never too old for pleasure, and adults enjoy sex at any age! You might be interested in sex toys for a variety of reasons, to supplement your sex life and perhaps because your long-term partner has passed but you still have sexual needs. If you're new to sex toys and nervous that it's too risqué, try a simple and easy to use toy. The Bodywand 5 Mini is a simple and inexpensive but intense toy and you can pass it off as a back massager!
      1. Is it safe for my health? This is one of the biggest questions we get, and contrary to popular belief, sex toys can HELP a senior’s health! Orgasms release stress and relieve pain because of the oxytocin released, and builds strength in the uterus and vagina to prevent prolapse. Likewise, orgasm prevents prostate problems as well. The Prostate Play Vibrator  is great for prostate health and easy to use for beginners.
      2. Will I use such an expensive toy often enough to warrant the purchase? You might be surprised to know that libido gets stronger for older women; you might also be surprised that toys aren't always expensive. We like the Rocks Off Gold Collection, reasonable prices and several sizes available.
      3. What will other people say? Well first of all, your sex toys don't have to be the topic of any conversation! But your partner will likely love it or be curious, and your grown children don't need to know. If you want to make sure no one knows, try a hand blown glass objet d’art - the Icicles line is gorgeous but this unicorn horn shaped massager is a favourite.
      4. Do I need to purchase any accessories? It's not just about the toy - take good care of it and its person too! Lube will make it easier to use and prevent pain or sensitivity in applied areas. Jo H2O Lube is water-based, great for post-menopausal women who can't always produce natural lubrication.
  • Can I use a vibrator? We think vibrators might actually be preferred for people with dexterity issues or arthritis. The GiGi2 G-Spot Vibrator is shaped so you don't have to move it too often and there are no edges that might make you more sensitive. The interface is easy to use without excessive technology and settings.

  • Seniors might already have a sex toy collection that puts ours to shame but it doesn't mean they don't have questions - especially about wi-fi connected toys and other increasing technology! Do you have any questions we can answer for you?
