Men Can Play Too—A Conversation About Modern Sex Toys

In Partnership with LELO

Is it just us or do lots of cis-males only talk about sex when they’re bragging? Did they not get the memo? Unsolicited arrogance is so last century. Meanwhile, the times have changed in more ways than one. For starters, more and more people are waking up to the fact that sex talk is never just about sex—it’s actually a conversation about health, trust, and confidence. And pleasure, naturally…lots and lots of pleasure. That brings us to our second point: have you seen what they’ve been doing with sex toys these days?

For proof of just how far the sex toy industry has come in recent years, look no further than Swedish lifestyle brand LELO. Amongst all the companies advancing the art of pleasure, this one is a personal favourite.

Of course, one must break the stigmas and embrace the full potential of pleasure if they’re going to explore the wonderful world of modern sex toys. You don’t just pick up a prostate massager overnight and get to work the next day, for example (or do you?). Hence, before we dive into some of LELO‘s latest and greatest output, let’s talk about men’s sexual health and all that entails.

Embrace the True Meaning of Sexual Health

We get it, fella: you’ve had lots of sex. But guess what? No one really cares. The truth is that bragging about your sex life is quite basic to a nearly primitive degree and also pretty obnoxious. It almost seems like you’re afraid to embrace sexual intercourse as an act of extreme intimacy, which connects you and a partner on both physical and emotional levels. Without this connection, meanwhile, one will never fully experience the mental benefits of a healthy sex life.

Have Real Discussions About Sex

Sex and self-pleasure should be more than a brag (here’s looking at you, straight cis-males), as they’re a vital part of our overall human well-being. When you sit down with others and have a real talk about these topics, the experience can be quite liberating. As you may soon discover, men become far more attractive and appealing when they put bragging aside to focus on actual feelings and preferences. It can open you up to an entirely new world of communication, where other humans are free to likewise discuss their personal experiences and desires. Already, the social stigmas are weakening.
