Honesty and comfort in discussing anything is critical for sustaining a healthy and loving romantic relationship. If it a sexual kind of relationship, such a discussion is even more important. The reality is far from perfect. Those who do not mind using sex toys, and those who are interested in doing so, thus find it difficult to talk about it when their partners are not so open-minded.
When something else that can elicit pleasure in their partner is introduced, people start to feel less important. These things are seen as a threat. So when a partner says they would like to try them out, it is immediately understood that their efforts have not been amounting to much. Handling such a delicate situation determines if they shall accept to join you, and if this shall be a successful experiment.
There is always the danger that your partner might start viewing you as not normal if you suggest to try out such toys. The usual sexual subjects are already hard as they are. You therefore need to be clear on why you need to introduce these toys to your intimate life. The benefits for the both of you need to outweigh their doubts. Your discussion should also clear the air where feelings of inadequacy are concerned. You need to still uphold the idea of honesty and openness.
It is important your timing of when to have such a discussion. You need to pick a suitable place and time to bring up such a topic. It is not a good idea to talk about such when you are in the throes of passion. Neither should you do it when you have just fought. If you notice you or your partner is having a tough and rough day, do not bring this subject up.
This is one topic you need to prepare adequately for. You need to do it at a neutral location. It needs to also be private. You should expect some form of discomfort in bringing the subject up before anyone can open up to it. The next stage after that needs you to set some rules and boundaries that are to forever be respected. Start off by trying out the smaller toys. The more you get into them, the more you shall be ready for more complicated things.
You can both participate in the choosing of toys. You can avoid the trip to the store. You can shop for them online, and have them delivered to your doorstep. There needs to be no need to rush your partner at this stage. AS you get used to them, use lubrication to make it easier. Using these toys does not mean you are weird or sick in any way. They are the things that have saved quite a number of sex lives in most committed relationships out there.
