Has anybody ever considered buying sex aids for a parent / family member?

Emma (Girl With Fire) Emma (Girl With Fire)
My mother has been separated from my father for almost 10 years, has not been in any sort of dating relationship to date, and has no real desire to find one. She has never owned a vibrator or sexual aid of any type that I know of. I had once asked her if she would like one as a gift and she told me that she didn't think there was a point. She laughed and told me that she was too old to be concerned with sex of any kind. She has a lot of stress in her life, and virtually no stress relievers. I know this is not something she would ever do herself, and is probably embarrassed even discussing with me.

I am curious has anybody else ever purchased a sex toy for a parent or family member? Would you?

I'm actually kind of in an "other" category. I haven't, but I would. My mother has been separated from my father for about five years. I know she's stressed, and I know she's lonely. I've somewhat jokingly mentioned getting her a vibrator, and she laughed and said she didn't want one. But I really want to get her one, and I do think part of it is just embarrassment. I would totally get her one, though, and don't see anything wrong with it.

I would be an "other" as well. I've bought a vibrator as a gift for my sister and I would buy her a toy again but I would probably never buy a sex toy for a parent.

I would if they seem interested or like the type who would use one. If my mother came to me and said she wanted a sex toy, I'd bring her here and show her all the different toys and give her recommendations. I'd probably do the same for my 20-year-old nephews.

That's exactly where I'm at with my mom.

Never considered doing this, and I do not even know where I would begin when looking for something for a family member.

My mum is the exact same and now single. She say's she isnt interested in guys or toys. But she loves her romance novels so I dont know how she gets by...lol. I have been considering buying something lately and I have no issues doing so if I come across something I think she would like.
Makes it easier to know when she sees all my new ones and shows some interest in certain ones.

My mom doesn't see mine. And to be honest I think she might die of embarrassment/become quite concerned if she came across my collection. I love her though, and I think the stress relief would do her a world of good.

I've given my mom loads of toys, and will continue to do so, but she's really open and welcomes them so it's not a big deal. My aunt and uncle asked Alan & I to select some toys for them when they found out we were toy reviewers, and that was ODD but I'd do it again if asked. To just buy one out of the blue for a family member though? No, I wouldn't.

I would for my Mom if I thought she wanted it. We are really close. I say if it will make her happy, go for it. If she ends up not using it (which she WILL) then you can take it back and keep it. : )

I am not that close to my family and I don't think they are interested in that kind of thing. I don't really talk about sex or anything with anyone other than my boyfriend, so I'd be way too uncomfortable discussing vibrators with my mom or something.

Who said anything about discussing them? Just hand her a wrapped box and tell her to open it in private Thats what I'll do.

We bought a 'gag' gift for sister & brother in law when they got married. One of those weekend getaway toy kits, basically, with a card that read something like 'in case you wear him out on the wedding night'. Does that count?

I have discussed what worked for me and what didn't toy wise with my mom. She has been divorced from my dad for almost 15 years and remains single. I am thinking of a few toys as gifts for her for this Christmas.

I just posted about this in another thread. My mother and I have a great open relationship and she was the one to teach ME about sex toys in the first days of "Fantasy" parties. Now I am the one doing the teaching and I just bought her her very first glass dildo for Christmas.

I have bought and given toys to my friends, aunts, and even my fiance's mother, but they are all open with me about sex. I think it depends on the situation. If you have talked to them about it and they seem receptive, I say go for it. However, in this case it seems like they are telling you no, so it may back fire. It may make them even more shy about toys. It's a tricky situation.

Sex wasn't something that was openly discussed in my house growing up so I would be uncomfortable giving my mom anything like that. I don't know what her reaction would be...

I would not buy sex toys for or even mention them to my parents as we don't talk about sex and never have (And I'd rather keep it that way...). I have not talked to my siblings about sex much, so it is unlikely I would buy anything for them. I can talk about a little with them, but anything about our personal sex lives is not something we like to share with each other. Now, most of my nieces and nephews are at "that" age and one lives on their own. I am more comfortable talking about sex to the eldest ones. The further away someone is from me genetically, the more I can talk to them, plus, I didn't see these kids a whole lot as they grew up. I think of them more like younger friends. I think if my eldest niece expressed some frustration or an interest in toys, I might get her something. She is really the only one I would buy for now.

No, that would be too uncomfortable, awkward and embarrassing.

No, I wouldn't.

I have thought about directing my mom here for the review program. But I don't know if I want to taint that 'innocent' image she has of me. LOL

I tell my mom it is my goal to totally shock her everyday!

Conservative Christian family. Aw hell no. That'd be one of the most awkward conversations of my life. My family has no business knowing how I get off, and I would like to likewise not know anything about their sex lives. An exemption might be my sister, but she's the wait til marriage type...

I bought one for my sister with my points for Christmas... BUT she expressed interest in getting one. She told me what she was looking for and I found something that I thought she would like. I don't know that I would do that for a parent, maybe my own mom because she and I had discussed it (not that I can do that now), but my dad or step-mom... ew... cousins or other family members... definitely EW.

This is also why I voted with two very very different answers. For some family members, I would be OK with it and would do it again... but for others... No fucking way.

That was my attitude in Highschool. I don't think there is much that would shock her now, but I try to keep her calm because she is the type to freak out that I am somehow ruining my life and endangering myself. She already has PTSD thanks to my father so I think it's probably best not to scare her. Something like buying her a sex toy wouldn't freak her out though.

I also think its silly that people try to deny that their family members are also sexual. I had a conversation the other day with a guy who was convinced his mother and stepfather did not sleep together. Not because they didn't but because he just did not want to acknowledge it.

I've given my mother, who is in her 70's and single, two vibrators. And I've given three of my grown up kids toys.

Along with the Gold laced G I bought my mom for Christmas, I am also giving her a powerful silicone vibrator, and the Groovies Wave so she can play around with a toy that has 8 different settings. I am bound and determined to show her the joys of sex toys. She has tried them before, but that was ages ago, and she really doesn't know how far toys have come. I feel like having a good g-spot glass dildo, a body safe silicone vibe, and a good plastic vibe with more settings is a good start. Hopefully, she will be able to enjoy them at least enough to get her curious about what else is out there and what other toys may be able to add to her sex life.
