From personal experience, I feel that when a male owns a sex toy (e.g. some type of masturbator) they usually keep the fact hidden from even there closest friends. Why is it that males feel that the use of such a toy is seen as degrading or a sign of "weakness." Many of such toys automatically have a negative, somewhat biased association that come along with them. While females do not go out and spread the word about their new favorite vibrator to the whole world, I feel that the attitude held by the general public is completely different when it concerns females who own toys. While I can only speak on behalf of my own personal experience, I feel that males and females both enjoy the use of sex toys equally.
On the flip-side, males typically enjoy talking about sex (or even the occasional masturbation joke) in general. Why is it that the use of some kind of aid is not discussed or widely accepted?
This post was more of just a way to put my thoughts down than anything else, but I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts!
