Men and women with a few long-term relationships under their belt are likely to have sizable toy collections. Most sex toys are expensive and have a high resale value which makes parting with them even more difficult. With all the time, energy, and money spent acquiring sex toys, it seems sad to start all over again.
Even the most stable are not immune to the feelings of doubt, paranoia, and anxiety that jealousy can bring on. Perhaps one of the worst feelings in the world, a little bit of jealousy is normal from time to time. But like an invisible parasite, unchecked jealousy can cause the green-eyed monster to grow into something just that—monstrous.
You don’t have to be like Scarface and whip out all the goods at once. Instead, take your time, and wait until you’ve had a few sessions with your partner to bring up the idea of using sex toys together. Make the transition easy by building a bridge of trust and communication both inside and outside of the bedroom.
Relationships are complex. But throw in a mix of low and high sex drives and it can become downright challenging. Having mismatched sex drives is one of the most common relationship problems couples face. In fact, data suggests that a third of all couples have serious issues with libidos that simply don’t sync.
The frequency of your lovemaking wanes as life’s demands take over and you remember that you have to occasionally leave your bedroom to work, eat, and socialize. As time continues to move forward and your love becomes even more comfortable, you start to wonder—are we having the right amount of sex to stay happy?
