Are men really okay with sex toys?
DEAR REDBOOK READER:
Most men are totally cool with sex toys, most of the time. Using them implies that you're as committed to getting off as we are, which is sexy. Also, sex toys still seem appealingly exotic to a lot of guys. But if you're always busting out the same old sex toy, I can see how it might get vaguely insulting, like you're in it to win it quickly and reliably and you're not interested in experimenting with your partner. Every so often, put down the toy and see what else turns you on. As long as you mix things up, the use of a battery-powered love machine shouldn't bruise the ego of your non-battery-powered love machine.
