How to Deal with Sexual Side Effects of Your Meds

sexual-side-effects-01-1024x597

‘Sexual side effects’ – if you take prescriptions medications, know someone who does, or have seen commercials for them, odds are you have heard this vague phrase. So, what does it mean? What makes them happen? What can we do about them? Let’s take a look at sexual side effects, their causes, and some fun tools that can help you navigate them and maybe find some new routes to pleasure.

Sexual side effects primer

First off, side effects are effects medications have on the user that are unrelated to the reason they are taking the medication- kind of like a bonus, but not a good one.

Lots of medications can cause sexual side effects, these include – but are not limited to –

– Anticonvulsants

– Antidepressants (SSRIs, MAOIs, Tricyclics)

– Antihistamines

– Anti-hypertensive medications

– Anti-manic medications

– Anti-psychotic medications

– Benzodiazepines

– Beta-blockers

– Birth control

– Opioid painkillers

Now that we are clear on the concept of ‘sexual side effects’, and some of the medications that can cause them, let’s get specific as to what exactly they look like. The term “sexual side effects” typically refers to the following:

– Loss of libido

– Erectile dysfunction

– Vaginal dryness

– Genital numbness

– Delayed orgasm

– Anorgasmia (Inability to orgasm)

How does a wand massager help coping with sexual side effects?

When it comes to navigating sexual side effects, we’re happy to inform you that you have options.  You could talk to your doctor about finding a different medication that works for you, without causing the unwanted side effects. However, you may not want to do that if you are happy with the positive benefits of your medication.  In that case you may, instead, want to figure out how to enjoy your sex life and continue taking your medications.  Luckily, especially in cases of genital numbness, delayed orgasm, and anorgasmia, vibrating massagers and their attachments, can be part of the solution.

We’d like to offer you some suggestions. First things first, though, let’s talk anatomy!

Pleasure anatomy beyond the usual suspects

For many people dealing with sexual side effects, it can feel like the stimulation that had previously been the key to their orgasm suddenly no longer works.  This can leave folks at a serious loss of pleasure. However, while lots of folks know to stimulate their clitoris or their G-spot, many don’t know about all the other potential pleasure makers right in that area!

In 2014 an Italian study was released about the clitourethrovaginal (CUV) complex – the area encompassing the clitoris, the vagina, and the urethra – as a great source of orgasmic pleasure. This study was sadly lost in a deluge of publicity claiming that it proved the G-spot “doesn’t exist” when in actuality, what it did was to call for recognizing the entire group of sensitive areas as key to the orgasmic process rather than focusing in on one point. The study noted that “Compared to the male erogenous zones, those in the CUV complex are much more variable and complex, and also varies from woman to woman depending on the hormonal cycle.”  Voila! The internal clitoris was “discovered”.

– The most important takeaways from this study include:

– The internal clitoris is huge and what we refer to as the G-spot is a small part of the expansive CUV region

– The urethra can also be stimulated for pleasure

The perineal sponge, known as the PS-spot to some, is a spongy cushion of erectile tissue between the vagina and rectum, is a sexual hotspot that most of us haven’t even heard of and can be another source of pleasure.

sexual-side-effects-02-1024x597

So essentially, there are places in the entire genital region that trigger pleasure.  Let’s take a moment to remember that bodies vary from person to person. So while some folks may find their orgasms can be triggered by perineal sponge or urethral stimulation, others may find that G-spot or clitoral stimulation is their money spots.

Bringing in the tools!

One of my biggest recommendations for folks coping with genital numbness, delayed orgasm, or anorgasmia is always large, strong, wand style massagers. This is because of their ability to deliver incredibly strong vibration to large areas.  Wand massagers are often substantially stronger than what folks are used to and that sheer power can be enough to get you past the hurdle of your meds. Additionally, large wands cover more surface area than traditional vibrators which may result in stimulating areas you haven’t stimulated before – like the vaginal opening, the urethra, or the perineal sponge.

A whole new world

An important thing to remember while navigating sexual side effects is that you are exploring uncharted waters. The orgasms you experience may feel different than you are used to, just as how you used to reach them may be completely different than the ways you’ve reached orgasm in the past. In JoEllen Notte’s sex and depression research, participants have described their orgasms as “in my body but not my brain,” “more subtle,” and simply “not the same.”  Remember, you’re exploring what is happening for your body now. Don’t get hung up on what you think “should” happen. Think of it as an adventure and find all the routes to pleasure you can.

A Look at the Wide-Ranging Appeal of Suction Toys

Suction

A few years ago, we all saw the dawn of the suction/air pulse toy category. It was new, exciting and a revolution in the sex toy game. Manufacturers had a new range to focus on, and retailers had exciting new toys to debut in their shops. Leaving the consumer with a new toy that brings a little something special to their toy box.

What makes suction and air pulse toys such a key category right now? Much like the wand or rabbit, this toy category is here to stay. It’s exciting to add a new range to the list of core top sellers — we don’t see that type of movement on metrics very often. The wand and rabbit are well-known, go-to favorites. Customers know and ask for them based on their legendary acceptance by shoppers of all kinds. By adding the suction/air pulse category, the wand and rabbit have rounded out into a trifecta of top sellers.

Offering a range of suction toys in stores is as important as any other category. Originally stores may offer one or two styles, but with rapidly emerging technology and more options, this section of a store can be just as big as any other top seller. We often focus on creating toys for the end user, but I feel this category allows the lines to blur when we are looking at who the end-user is. Make sure to mix up the brands you carry with newer items like this. Core top sellers will always have a place in your store; this is a perfect opportunity to try new manufacturing partnerships.

This is the first handheld, female-friendly toy that most accurately mimics human interaction during foreplay or intercourse. The entire concept of this toy is built around creating a realistic experience that you would have with a partner. What audience does that speak to? Everyone — from a sales perspective, suction/air pulse toys are something that any customer can use. This is also a category that doesn’t focus on vibration. Vibration is a nice benefit to most styles, but it’s an added feature to what the toy is intended to do. Suction toys also vary on their stimulation methods. Some of these toys perform a true suction and may offer different types of vibration to complement the core feature. Or it could be designed with air pulse technology that feels incredibly like suction, paired with different types of vibration.

This is also a toy that people can instantly relate to in a different way than they might to a vibrator. Our personal interpretations of vibration are different. Wands are a great example, what one customer may find too strong, another doesn’t think will be strong enough. Suction on the other hand, has a more uniform feel that users can easily identify with. It makes it easier to speak to someone about a sensation they are familiar with, than trying to break down more complex items like a 28-speed and function wand.

My favorite part of this category is the definition of whom it’s for. Sometimes it’s easier for customers to understand when the manufacturer or retailer breaks down the intended user for them. Suction toys can be enjoyed by all kinds of users. Sell your hearts out, people. If you have a couple looking for a new toy, this is a great option for foreplay. It can be hard to stay connected when one partner travels frequently or for couples that may not live together. Having this product category offers a toy both people can relate to, helping to keep things exciting and spicy. As more app-based toys emerge, it truly does keep people connected! As the self-care trend continues to encourage people to think about themselves more, this is a great toy for connecting with oneself. It’s a great way to make a customer feel empowered about taking control of their pleasure, with a toy option they can relate to. These toys are a great upsell for those looking to treat themselves a bit.

One of the best retail mantras I have learned on the sales floor was “four to the floor” when I worked for Nike Brands. The first two items you bring are what the customer asked for in two different sizes. The third item you bring is an alternative to their original choice in case that doesn’t work, and the fourth item is something you think they would like but wouldn’t ask for. A lot of times, the fourth option is store-driven — it’s something for a holiday; it’s a focus item for the month, or it may be something you have a lot of inventory of. This is such a great rule to translate and apply to our retail stores, and suction is an easy and perfect fourth option. Create a go-to area for that fourth surprise and delight item for everyone in the store, making it an easy conversation to add on to the sale. If a customer is looking for a rabbit, show them a few different rabbits and another type of clitoral stimulator. Surprise them with a suction toy that looks like a rabbit! These products are perfect opportunities for engagement on the sales floor, even for those people who don’t want help. I always talk about tester stations because I believe in them so much! This type of toy must have testers … ask your distributors and manufacturers for support. The more credibility you can establish with a product on the sales floor, the easier it will be to close the sale.

As manufacturers continue to develop more materials, colors and options for this category, suction and air pulse toys will continue to grow its audience. Use these new and innovating products to make sure that your store or online site becomes a go-to destination for your customers to find the latest and greatest.

Head Games: Using Vibrators for P3nis Pleasure

using-vibrators-during-oral-sex-le-wand-1024x597

Ever tried a vibe on a D? We want to talk about blowjobs, handjobs, anything, and everything to do with penis pleasure!

Writer’s note: Throughout this article, we will be referring to the genitals of someone assigned male at birth as a penis and using masculine pronouns, but these tips will work on a wide range of folx, regardless of their gender or what they call their privates.

Investing in your first sex toy can be an exciting and/or overwhelming experience. Once you have it in your hands, what do you even do with it? It may seem straight forward, but if it’s your first sex toy it’s completely understandable to feel a bit out of the sea without a little direction.

On the flip side, maybe you have a drawer full of sex toys and you aren’t looking for a new toy but rather looking for new ways to use your existing 100 vibrators. You’ve tried each toy at each setting at different angles on your sensitive bits and now want to use your trusty go-to pleasure tool in a new way.

We’re here to help! Through years of, um, “personal research,” our team has compiled a list of creative ways to turn your toys into weapons of mass destruction in a way that you may have never even considered before. By mass destruction, we’re talking about blowjobs, handjobs, anything and everything to do with penis pleasing — and YES, you can use vibrators on penis’ for intense and sometimes explosive results.

Scroll on down to read our top five tips on using vibrators during sex:

  1. Preheating the oven

It may seem like some folks are always “ready to go,” and sometimes others might need a helping hand. Foreplay can be just as important for him as it is for anyone and using a handheld vibrator can aid with getting things going.

Before you begin, make sure to apply ample water-based lubricant to your toy. There is nothing more uncomfortable than an unlubricated sex toy on the genitals, regardless of how high quality the material of the toy is!

Set your toy to the lowest setting with your partner’s preferred pattern. The patterns that have quick “thuds” can often work the best here, as each thud acts as a little knock at the door. Lightly trace the vibrating part of the toy around the head of the penis while doing whatever else you want — making out, kissing their neck, playing with their nipples, whatever their “thing” is. You can even hold the vibrator in the palm of your hand and simply wrap your hand around the entire penis, applying a slight amount of pressure, and not move your hand at all. This will help send the pulsing vibrations deeper into the penis and get blood flowing to the area.

  1. Snake charmer

Once he is at attention, it’s time to start turning up the heat. With the penis fully erect, it is ok to start using stronger intensity vibrations.

Turn your vibe up to the setting your partner prefers and apply light pressure to the frenulum — this is the soft area on the “front” of the penis in between where the head of the penis merges into the shaft. This area is incredibly sensitive and responds well to lubrication, vibration, and even temperature.

Apply slight pressure to the frenulum and then slide the vibe down the front of the shaft as you take the head of the penis into your mouth. The vibe should reach where the shaft meets the testicles and hold there for a beat, then slide back up and repeat. You can modify the pace based on personal preference.

  1. It’s all in the throat

This one admittedly feels a little silly, but it’s simple and easy to do with some pretty fun results. Using the petite massage wand press up again the bottom of your chin just above your voice box to turn your mouth into a vibrating wonderland.

Warning: If you talk while you’re attempting this, you will have some serious robot voice! Give it a try if you’re up for having a laugh. Sex should be fun after all, so have fun with it!

  1. The reach-around

While positioned behind your partner, reach around and use a palm-sized vibe to cradle your partner’s penis. Gently stroke up and down while moving your body in sync. The lack of eye contact adds to the psychological excitement here and can feel next level amazing!

  1. Playing with the luggage

Of course, you should never forget to play with the testicles! Playing with the balls can make both parties feel a bit nervous because we don’t want to hurt them (obviously). But believe it or not, the testicles are actually fairly resilient and respond well to temperature, pressure, vibrator, and even (brace yourself) light squeezing. There is a common phrase used in regards to fingering that goes “know the difference between summoning a genie and stuffing a chicken,” and the same rule applies to pressure on the testicles.

Using a wand massager have your partner lay on their back and position the head of the wand directly against their body under their balls. This will hit your body differently depending on the size of your body, so don’t feel like you can’t play around with this just because “it’s not in the right spot.”

With the wand between their legs and against their body, gently lift the wand towards the testicles as you alternate hand strokes on the penis. As you go down further along the shaft with your mouth, raise the wand up to meet the testicles, and then when you are coming up lower the wand back down. This will give a pleasure-in-stereo sensation that will add an exciting level of stimulation to an otherwise basic blowjob.

These are only a handful of suggestions for how to creatively use your sex toys on a partner. We strongly encourage you to get creative and communicate with your partner about what they like. See what you can come up with together!

5 Ways to Stay Home and Play with Yourself

social-distancing-masturbation-tips-04_-1024x597

Listen, you might be going complete bonkers right now being cooped up inside. And, hey, we GET IT. Staying inside is wretched and depletes our vitamin D (pun intended, because sorry it’s rough out there). We need something to lift our spirits that doesn’t involve getting a crooked spine from watching ninety hours of Netflix.

Enter orgasm. Orgasm creates a magnificent cocktail of pleasurable hormones in your brain. It’s like mother nature’s blessed Xanax. Anxiety is naturally relieved when the brain is flooded with oxytocin and dopamine. It helps to bring down your stress levels and give you a sense of peace.

An orgasm is legitimately good for your health. It makes your skin look better, it improves mood, and it brings down anxiety levels. Not to mention it boosts immunity. Hello, we’re literally trying to stave off an infectious virus up here. ANYWAY, masturbation is amazing and everyone should be doing it. If you’re having anxiety, grab your vibrator! Get that oxytocin flowing, girl.

Here are the top 5 things you should try while you’re social distancing and have way too much time on your hands.

  1. Edging

Edging is a technique wherein you bring the body into the near-eclipse of sexual release, only to bring yourself back down again. And then repeat! Also known as “orgasm control,” it can make serious intense orgasms (once you get there).

It is an ongoing state of heightened arousal. When your clitoris is at attention due to previous stimulation, your whole body begins to feel desperate for an orgasm. Start by masturbating as slowly as possible. Use your vibrator on the lowest possible setting (and experiment with different vibration patterns). When you’re about to climax, pull it away. Have a sip of water or get up and stretch your legs. Take a minute to take big, deep belly breaths. Then, start all over again. When you’re first starting out, try doing this three times before giving yourself over to orgasm.

It may sound hard, and that’s because it kind of is. It takes practice. You’re in isolation. You have time to perfect this. We promise it is worth it — like “blast your effing face off” worth it.

  1. Erotic Hypnosis

Erotic hypnosis might sound like some new age-y nonsense, but it’s actually quite a lovely, sexy thing to try. It can help to center you and get you out of your head and into your body. Lord knows we all need that right now, you know?

Erotic hypnosis is the use of hypnotic trance states to up the ante on your sexual experiences. This can be done solo (or with a partner). In this practice, you use your creative, glorious brain to manifest pleasure in the body. Again, this might sound a little nuts, but the brain is seriously the biggest sex organ we have.

Just because you’re hypnotized (technically), it doesn’t you become a zombie. You’re still very much in control, you’re just relaxed and taking an erotic journey. Listen to an erotic story or meditation while breathing into your body. Through the power of suggestion, your body can/ will respond to the pleasure your brain experiences. Some people can even orgasm! There are lots of dope YouTube videos designed for this – check them out here.

  1. Masturbating while doing your kegel exercises

When you’re trapped at home, masturbation may feel like the only thing you really can do right now. But that shouldn’t mean you just pop into bed for two minutes and rub one out. This is an opportunity to try new stuff. Don’t waste it!

While masturbating, try giving your kegel exercises a go. Kegels are used to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, a sling-like set of muscles that hold in vital organs and muscles such as your uterus, vagina, and intestines. When peeing, try stopping the flow of urine for a second. The muscles that stop the flow are your pelvic floor muscles — medically known as pubococcygeus muscles (PCs for short). Strong kegels can contribute to stronger, better orgasms. Why? Because when they are toned, they can help to engage your entire clitoral structure. with enough practice, doing kegels during intercourse have even been shown to assist some female-bodied people in having orgasms during intercourse.

To give this a go during masturbation, try inserting a dildo or kegel ball into the vagina while using your wand on your clitoris. Squeeze on the toy while it’s inserted. This can create a whole new sensation that is pretty explosive.

  1. Exploring new erogenous zones

There are so many erogenous zones on the body and yet we tend to stick to the nipples and clitoris. With everyone trapped inside, it’s time to tap into your pleasure potential. Take an afternoon to explore a new zone of the body. Learning what brings you pleasure is key to having good sexual experiences.

For example, try engaging the lower vaginal wall, including the very opening of the vagina. This area is rarely explored and it’s a real shame. It’s packed with nerve endings. The bottom of the vaginal opening, called the fourchette, is highly sensitive. Try caressing this area with a wand vibrator. Since it’s a new spot, you may want to try something with a little less intensity.

  1. Erotic self-focus

Have you ever been having sex (partner or solo) and realized that you’re really focused on yourself — in a good way? Like you can’t stop thing about how sexy you are? Well, that is called erotic self-focus. If you’ve never done this, we highly recommend it. It can help with body confidence, heightened arousal, and general sexual badassery.

Where to start: set up a mirror in front of yourself before masturbating. Be sure that you can see your whole vulva. Grab a wand vibrator and start masturbating. Stay as focused on your body as you possibly can. Pay attention to where you’re touching yourself and what feels good. Learning exactly where you like to be touched on/in your clit, vulva, and vagina can help you gain true knowledge of your pleasure points.

Plus, getting turned on by your own body is super hot. You’re sexy, honey. You deserve to be horny for yourself.
