Sex Spoken Here: Choosing the Right Sex Toy
Welcome to my virtual therapy room! I am Dr Lori Beth Bisbey and this is Sex Spoken Here. Remember that this podcast deals with adult themes so if you don’t have privacy you might wish to put on your headphones. This week I am talking about choosing the right sex toy.
Joining me today, is Katy, the public relations director and resident sexologist at Adam and Eve.
Katy is a native of Tennessee (Go Vols!) and a graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with a B.S. in Journalism and Public Relations. After working for Maytag and in publishing in New York, she started working at Adam & Eve in November of 1993 as a catalog copywriter (remember catalogs?!). In 1997, Katy was promoted to Adam & Eve Director of Public Relations. She received her certification in Clinical Sexology in 2017 and holds an Associate in Sex Education from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. She is currently working towards her AASECT certification as a Sex Educator.
Personal: Divorced mother of two teen girls. Lives a block from ex and we still have weekly family dinners and even vacation together. Pescaterian (Mostly vegetarian but occasionally eats fish). Loves dogs, monkeys, travel and red wine.
We spoke about choosing a sex toy.
We started by talking about the different types of toys available for women from clitoral stimulators to vibrators. We talked about the toys available to men from masturbators to prostate stimulators and those for couples as well. Cutting edge toys include Bluetooth controlled toys and prostate vibrators. Katy said they have experienced an upsurge in sales for prostate stimulators and we both agreed that now there are a number of these toys marketed for heterosexual men. We spoke about the increase in heterosexual men willing to consider prostate stimulation.
We spoke about how sex toy might develop and what virtual reality toys are coming.
All of the current ones are meant for one person to be having sex with a virtual character. I asked about the possibility of ones where people could have sex with each other in the virtual sphere. Katy raised the ethical issues that might come as a result of that including issues around cheating and underage use. I suggested that raising ethical issues is a good idea as it gets people to think through their sexual and relationship choices.
We spoke about how sex toys have helped many women to reach orgasm who had not been able to without a toy and how they can help around menopause and after so that people can continue a healthy sexual life into their mature years.
I asked for a recommendation of a first toy and Katy said for women she would recommend a bullet vibrator or a pocket rocket. For men, a masturbator. She recommended that people try some less expensive toys out to figure out what works best for them.
Katy has graciously offered us a code ‘SPOKEN’ to use to get 50% off any one item at https://www.adamandeve.com. So go and grab that must have toy now!
