With the holidays coming up quickly, the buzz of gift giving fills the air. People head to the mall, department stores, and Amazon. But what about places like Edenfantasys? Are sex toys appropriate gifts to give friends and loved ones? Although sweaters and fruitcake may be what grandma gives, sometimes it is okay to push the binds of convention and give sex toys for the holidays.
Now, I’m not saying that your son’s second grade teacher should get a set of anal beads, but in the dynamic of certain relationships, sex toys can not only be an appropriate gift, but also a fun one as well.
For example, a dear friend, who has trouble climaxing from intercourse, could really benefit from a clitoral stimulator or vibrator small enough to handle during doggy style. Or perhaps she would like a vibrating cock ring for her to share with a lover, which could change the whole way they go about sex.
Then there is your aunt, who is just hitting menopause. Last week over coffee, she complained that she no longer seems to get as wet as she used to during sex. I’d bet she’d appreciate the opportunity to try a variety pack of flavored lubes.
How about your sister who read 50 Shades of Grey cover to cover three times, but doesn’t know where to start when it comes to BDSM? Perhaps she find a use for a silk scarf and blindfold, or even one of the new kits from Lelo.
In my opinion, if your relationship is open to positive sex talks, then it is probably alright to give sex toys as gifts. Just make sure they don’t open it in front of Great Uncle Ralph; you don’t want to be responsible for any heart attacks on Christmas! If there is someone on your Christmas list who you think could really enjoy toys, but you’re unsure if it’s okay, simply ask them if they would be offended if they received a toy as a gift. The worst thing that can happen is that they can say that they don’t want one.
Really, everyone loves gifts that keep on giving.
