While owning a couples vibrator may seem taboo, it’s actually a great way to level up your sex life and increase intimacy with your partner. No matter how your relationship is defined, or how those within it define themselves, the addition of sex toys to your bag of tricks can be beneficial on many levels. That’s why today we’re exploring seven benefits of owning a couples vibrator and how those benefits can strengthen your relationship.

More Pleasure

The first and most obvious perk of owning a couples vibrator is that those who have vaginas will experience more orgasms as a couples vibrator is generally designed to stimulate the clit. Penis owners can also enjoy extra stimulation meaning that there’s more pleasure to go around for everyone.

Stimulate Different Areas

Another benefit is that your couples vibrator can be used to stimulate different areas. Applying the device to nipples often has pleasurable results and if it’s strong enough, it can also be used to give massages in general. Plus, having your vibe taking care of the clit during sex frees up your hands for other activities.

Improved Communication

While the main perks of owning a couples vibrator are generally perceived as being linked to bedroom activities, the biggest benefit of all isn’t even to do with sex. Bringing toys into the bedroom requires openness and honesty between all involved in regards to what they do and don’t like (or will and won’t consider) and can actually significantly improve communication in the relationship in general.

Growing Closer

You’ll also grow closer thanks to your new couples vibrator as orgasms release the love hormone, oxytocin. This means that your feelings of love and closeness with your partner will increase simply because the sex has gotten better. This in turn creates a self-perpetuating cycle of positive changes within your relationship as studies have shown that sex is often more enjoyable the more you care about the person (or people) you’re doing it with. This continued improvement and enjoyment leads to more love out of the bedroom which then translates to even better sex which begins the cycle again.

Increased (And Better) Foreplay

Bringing toys into the bedroom also tends to both increase and improve foreplay. This is important as those who have vaginas often cannot orgasm from penetration alone meaning that foreplay is commonly their only chance to achieve that level of pleasure when intercourse is vanilla.

Opens Opportunities To Explore New Ideas Together

Owning a couples vibrator can also lead to further discussion about what other things the involved parties would like to experiment with in the bedroom. This opens up opportunities to explore new ideas together and share fantasies that may have otherwise stayed buried for fear or judgement. While your partner will obviously still have hard limits that cannot be crossed, you may be surprised by the new things that you both want to try.

Fun Novelty

Finally, owning a couples vibrator is a fun novelty that can help spice up your sex life, even if you end up deciding that this particular toy isn’t for you. Trying new things together with your loved one is always a novel experience and the addition of a toy to your bedroom activities is no different.

While bringing toys into the bedroom may seem scary, it can be a wonderful experience as long as both parties have clearly communicated their wants and needs. These seven ways owning a couples vibrator can help improve your relationship are some of the biggest perks of these devices, but they aren’t the only ones, so we suggest experimenting yourself to find more with your partner.
