Peaked interest in sex toys
How can I introduce sex toys into the bedroom without intimidating my husband? He is very old fashioned and tells me “toys are for kids”. I roll my eyes and change the topic. I can’t believe one person can be so closed minded. I love him and have no problem with the sex as it is now, but I also don’t see any harm in using a toy every now and again. – Debra, 38
Tell your husband that age is only a number and the two of you are far from old. Actually, you’re really just “a pair of big kids” and I hope that doesn’t change. Why?
Because if you think yourself old, you’ll become old, and there’s a lot of exciting, fun things to do before then. Instead of talking about it, you could just buy one and show him when the conversation seems right, and he may be responsive. I speak here of “toys” for female stimulation or male stimulation. I am not referring to a dildo.
I emphasise this because some men can be very intimidated by women using dildos larger than their penis. Many men often see this as their partner saying their penis is too small to satisfy them. So please bear that in mind.
If the dildo is not the issue, then try to help him to realise that whatever his age in numbers and years, he’s still the sexy young man he once was and as such, he makes you want to explore safe things together.
I hope that helps.– Helen
