Ann Summers talk Sex Toys with
the nation's favourite doctor
Dr. Christian Jessen

The nation's favourite doctor, Dr Christian Jessen, believes that there shouldn't be a stigma attached to sex toy use and shares how you can reap the benefits from using sex toys either solo or together.

"According to a recent Ann Summers survey, 3 in 5 couples use sex toys together every fortnight. Although it's clear that loved-up couples are becoming more open minded and experimental when it comes to introducing sex toys into the bedroom, what other impact does it have other than spicing things up under the covers?"

Use It or Lose It

"Sex toys help you stay sexually primed. Regular self-stimulation helps to promote healthy blood flow to the genitals, and it also helps keep you in touch with your sexual fantasies and desires. Sex toys can play a vital role in self-stimulation, especially for women."

Discover New Levels of Pleasure

"Sex toys can take you to new levels of sexual pleasure. For most women, orgasm isn't easily achievable. But with toys, orgasms become more frequent, and they can also become more intense and pleasurable."

More Time for Foreplay

"Instead of leaping right into intercourse, sex toys can help you slow down and enjoy the ride. From vibrators to massage oils to bondage gear, sex toys and aids can help you make sex as fun and erotic as you desire."

G-spot Orgasms Easier to Achieve

"With G-spot stimulators, you will be better able to locate and stimulate this hot spot. Or, you can even reach a blended orgasm (a simultaneous vaginal and clitoral orgasm) by using a toy that stimulates both areas at once. "

Use Them to Your Heart's Desire

"Sex toys can be used on a regular basis. They will not permanently damage your sexual response or harm your sexual pleasure in any way. Just keep them clean after every use so they don't grow bacteria. Rinse them with warm water or use a Ann Summers Buzz Fresh Wipe."

A Boost of Confidence

Female Sexual Empowerment

"Recent research discovered that women who used vibrators were more likely to take care of their health by visiting their gynaecologist in the past 12 months. In addition, vibrator users reported higher levels of desire, arousal, lubrication, and orgasm."

Explore Fantasies With Your Partner

"Sex toys get you talking, fantasising, and connecting with your partner on a physical and emotional level. The best way to improve your sex life and your sexual pleasure is to talk openly and honestly about your needs and desires, and sex toys can play a big role in getting that conversation started and helping to break down barriers and taboos."
