Through market research into adult toy use, John Thomas Toys have found that the majority of sex toy or adult toy users tend to be more likely to use them alone during solo masturbation moments. It may well be that the individual is single, or their partner is away.
Alternatively, some people use their sex toys behind their partner’s backs!
For most adults who are single, using an adult toy in order to help themselves achieve sexual gratification is totally understandable and there would be few who could or would criticise – perhaps those with strong religious opinions may?
In this day and age as we approach the very tail end of 2019, sex toys can be found – albeit in small versions – tucked away and stocked on the shelves in most major supermarkets. It is common for men and women to discuss the purchase of and use of, adult toys or sex toys and there is little cause for embarrassment.
If you are single and therefore not engaging in sexual activity then it can often be a lonely and sexually frustrating time if you are not able to engage in some sort of self pleasure. While there will always be those who feel it is forbidden or wrong or plain immoral, the majority of adults will see nothing wrong with satisfying themselves. Despite more relaxed attitudes to the use of sex toys and masturbation in general, it still appears (based on our research at least) that men lead the way when it comes to self pleasure.
This shouldn’t really be a surprise when we become aware of the fact that hundreds of millions of adults tune into porn sites online every day (around the world) and that nearly 70% of them are men.
Men may be the most likely group to engage in masturbation however when it comes to the incorporation of sex toys into the proceedings its quite an even thing between the sexes.
Men are drawn predominantly to the use of male masturbators to masturbate their penises. For those of you that are not up to speed on these devices, they are essentially some form of handheld artificial chamber made to resemble the inside of the anus, vagina or mouth.
They are designed to make the male masturbation experience more realistic and thus enjoyable and the materials they use in these sex toys are designed to be as close to life as possible.
Male mastubators tend to be only used in a handheld manner, but for the man with a larger disposable bank account he may attach it to a compatible sex machine or other equivalent adult toy capable of gyrating the male masturbator back and forth etc.
As a general rule of thumb, heterosexual men are more liable to only use male masturbators where as bi-sexual or gay men are liable to not only use those sex toys, but also incorporate a platinum silicone dong or other anal sex toy so they can stimulate their anus, rectum and ideally their prostate gland (a small walnut shaped gland inside the body which can be massaged via anal entry with an adult toy such as a vibrator or platinum silicone dong).
Women who masturbate regularly are reported to have begun this practice simply by using their hands to stimulate the vulva, clitoris or vagina. Over time they are liable to want to make the experience more enjoyable or possibly less hard work. As a consequence, they may well look to research the weird and wonderful sex toys on the market.
The vibrator is a common go-to sex toy which women love to use when they masturbate. The vibrator is particularly suited to clitoral stimulation with or without vaginal or anal play.
Many women like to use massaging wands or other high powered vibrators when they play.
Alternatively, they are also highly likely to use and enjoy for that matter, platinum silicone dongs or large silicone dildos for anal and or vaginal penetration by hand.
Some platinum silicone dildos even cater for both orifices simultaneously if the woman wishes to experience double penetration.
