5 Tips for Introducing Sex Toys to Your Relationship

A woman holds up a toy in front of her. Her partner embraces her from behind. Communication is key to introducing sex toys in any relationship.

Our official partnership with Married at First Sight (MAFS) for their 2022 season aims to break the stigma surrounding the use of sex toys with and without a partner, while highlighting they can be seen as a pleasure ally rather than something to be intimidated by.

With the season now well underway, the show has just revealed its sexiest Intimacy Week ever. Introducing toys to your relationship is the perfect way to build pleasure-positive sexual connections with one another, but for some it can feel super daunting.

Your partner and their feelings are of course always at the forefront of your mind, especially when it comes to decisions that can affect the both of you and your intimacy. Sexual intimacy is a major part of any relationship, and there’s no right or wrong way to be intimate.

1. Communication is key

MAFS’ 2021 season highlighted the concerns of many that a sex toy is a replacement of them in the bedroom when contestant Alana Lister’s Lelo Sona clitoral stimulator caused major on-screen controversy with her husband, Jason. Dubbed the “the enemy,” Jason wanted nothing to do with the must-have vibe.

Firstly, if you’re considering introducing a vibrator into your relationship, make sure you’re comfortable using sex toys alone and talking about it with others so you can clearly tell your partner what you want and why.

At Wild Secrets we like to think of vibrators and pleasure products as a teammate and a relationship enhancer. People can be apprehensive to introduce toys into their relationships out of fear of being replaced, but that is certainly not the case!

It’s our hope that the inclusion of sex toys in MAFS’ 2022 season empowers Australians to celebrate pleasure while strengthening erotic connections and sexual compatibility.

2. Talk to your partner before bringing a sex toy into the bedroom

This year, MAFS’ Intimacy Week incorporates sex toys into their exercises as they look at ways for the couples that have just married each other at first sight to increase their intimacy and accelerate their connection during the eight-week experiment.

Bringing toys into the bedroom is a great way to connect as it creates an open and honest dialogue surrounding sex, pleasure, and what each partner’s likes and dislikes, wants and needs are.

You want to have this chat before you bring anything to the bedroom, though! Talk about the positives of sex with your partner and explain how a vibrator wouldn’t replace them, but rather, enhance your relationship and increase your pleasure together.

If you’re nervous to start the conversation, try relating it to a tv show or movie with a scene featuring sex toys and ask your partner how they felt about it.

3. Enjoy a solo self-love session first

Have a go using a toy alone first to get a feel for it and explore which sensations you enjoy. Debrief about your experience after, the safer and more relaxed you both feel, the better.

Discuss your likes and dislikes so your partner can please you exactly how you want and vice versa. It’s also helpful to establish any rules together about how you do and don’t want your toy or toys to be used.

Once you’re both ready, experiment together to discover what lets both of you give and receive pleasure.

If your partner still isn’t ready, respect that. It might not be the right time now, but they may reconsider in the future. Trying out a spicy new sex position or two is another great way to shake up your routine. Check out our article on the best sex positions for cheeky ideas…

And, you can always continue with your solo sessions in the meantime!

4. Indulge in a sexy shopping trip together

Begin by browsing for toys together, we have the largest range online and the best prices around, so your options are truly endless!

Simply looking at all the delicious toys you have available to you can be a massive turn on, so don’t be afraid to point out something you’d like to try.

While it might be tempting to go big, we recommend starting small and working your way up to bigger or more complicated products.

5. Talk about your experience afterward

Keep your communication flowing! As with your solo session, debriefing afterwards is important to ensure you both feel safe, happy, and satisfied.

This experience should enhance your relationship and not hinder it. If your partner is uncomfortable or unsure about your experience, talk about what they didn’t like about it and why.

When you’re ready to try again, keep these things in mind so you can take your play to the next level while being respectful of your partner.
