Sex Toys Are Good For Your Health
Do you feel squeamish about sexually pleasuring yourself with inanimate objects? Do you think sex toys are just that – toys? A frivolous luxury? Do you think that sex toys are sinful, perverted or self-abuse?
It turns out that sex toys are actually good for you and your physical health.
Many doctors will even suggest the use of certain sex toys for men and/or women that need some help in that department. IntensityTM falls into that category. Doctors recommend this product from some of their patients to help strengthen their PC muscle (pubococcygeus muscle). This toy is a vibrator AND a Kegel exerciser that automatically strengthens and tones the muscles responsible for intensifying orgasms. It tones and tightens internal muscles as it stimulates. IntensityTM vibrators feel intense.
Gentle vibrations stimulate the nerve endings at the surface of the skin and cause your body to increase levels of endorphins, natural chemicals that make you feel relaxed. The effect of your increased sense of well-being slows your heart rate and regulates breathing, thereby reducing stress levels. It’s a much healthier way to reduce stress and your lower heart rate than drinking alcohol or taking prescription medications like Valium.
Strong massage increases blood circulation, and with it, levels of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues in the massaged area. Increasing blood flow by using a vibrator can also speed up recovery from surgeries like episiotomies and vasectomies.
Vibrators can be used to improve sexual function for people with medical conditions. Diabetes and multiple sclerosis can affect nerve transmission that can dull sexual sensation. People taking medications for high blood pressure and depression can also suffer side effects that limit sexual response. Women who undergo hormonal changes during menopause or suffer nerve damage after surgery sometimes find their clitorises to be less sensitive. A vibrator can be useful to increase arousal.
Strong massage increases reaches tense muscles that lie more deeply beneath the skin’s surface to ease muscle discomfort.
Wand massagers like the Original Magic Wand can also be used in the way they are more publicly marketed – to provide deep muscle relief on other parts of your body like your shoulders.
Regular sexual activity, even with a dildo, can help maintain healthy vaginal tissues, especially at the onset of, during and post-menopause. Preventing vaginal atrophy should be taken seriously. Vaginal atrophy can lead to increased vaginal infections because of changes in acid balance. Vaginal atrophy can also lead to frequency, urgency of urination, burning with urination, urinary tract infections, and incontinence.
Men with prostate disorders can use dildos or prostate massagers to drain built-up fluid.
Kegel (and Ben-Wa) balls are usually recommended by obstetricians and gynecologists to improve the elasticity of the vaginal muscles and to prevent urinary incontinence. You can squeeze these muscles on your own, but the balls provide additional resistance and make sure that you’re really putting effort into working those muscles.
