BEST DEALS ON SEX TOYS:
If Instagram is to be believed, then self care for women basically amounts to face masks and daily affirmation apps.
Hot take: Sex toys are the ultimate self-care purchase.
Orgasms release oxytocin, the anti-stress hormone that gets you warm and fuzzy when cuddling, while dopamine, a neurotransmitter that regulates sleep, also makes an appearance. It stands to reason, then, that “I need to get laid” is a thing that actually makes sense to say when you’re having a rough week.
Sex toys allow you to give yourself that needed boost whenever you damn well please, and it’s empowering to not have to rely on someone else (though toys are great for spicing things up with a partner, too). Getting to know your body is also key in developing a positive relationship with yourself — the most important relationship you’ll ever have.
Not all sex toys are made equally: Your favorite could be an oral sex simulator or clitoral stimulation via sonic waves, or maybe the Game of Moans dildo sword is what makes winter come. Whatever your preference, there’s so much more available to you than those $10 vibrators at Spencer’s in the mall.
