The world’s first couples vibrator launched in 2008 at the International Lingerie Show in Las Vegas. The We-Vibe® couples vibrator was an immediate hit, selling out of the first 20,000 products in only six weeks. The brand quickly created a buzz amongst consumers and the adult industry alike and ever since has enjoyed accolade after accolade. Now ten years on, psychologist and We-Vibe’s Relationship Expert, Dr Becky Spelman shares her ten reasons to invest in a couple’s vibrator.

Is your sex box lacking this one vital item?

Is your sex box lacking this one vital item?

A couples toy is fun for both! Given that sex is something that two people do together, it makes sense to use sex toys that bring pleasure to both parties. 

Couples toys are great for men too. Not only do they get to enjoy the exciting sensations it provides, but it also takes some of the pressure off. Men are traditionally seen as having all the power to make or break a sexual encounter. By helping to give both women and men sexual agency, the toys can help men to treasure the nuanced and complex nature of their own sensuality. 

Equal pleasure is good for relationships. Couples toys recognise the sexual agency and desires of both women and men understanding both can give and receive pleasure in a variety of active and passive ways. Ideally, sex is an exercise in giving and taking, and both parties to it will feel cherished and nurtured by the experience, growing their relationship and their sense of tenderness towards one another. 

The We-Vibe Sync is feminist! Traditionally, sex toys are often designed with the idea of things being “done to” the woman and her body, either when she is on her own, or when she is in bed with her partner.  This reflects an old-fashioned paradigm whereby women’s bodies are seen as essentially passive “things” that can give or receive pleasure in a passive way. The We- Vibe Sync brings equality into the bedroom. 

A couples toy brings erotic play to the next level! Both the man and the woman are invited to engage fully with one another and with their own deepest desires. The vibrator itself has been carefully designed to stimulate the genitals of both at the same time, enabling them to connect with one another on a new, heightened physical and emotional level.

They relieve stress - by the end of a busy day, the thought of getting naked and having to be inventive in bed can just seem to be too much. By introducing a thoughtfully designed product into the relationship, everyone can feel less under pressure about their performance.

The We-Vibe Sync keeps couples hot for each other even when they are miles apart! Thanks to its innovative We-Connect app, the We- Vibe Sync brings some much-needed excitement into the bedroom—even when the couple are not physically together, such as when one of them is on a work trip.

Couples toys make it easier to orgasm! Let’s face it, we all love to orgasm—and couples toys can make that easier for both the people involved.

These orgasms are good for our mental health! Experiencing orgasm is important for emotional health, and the heightened levels of serotonin that result, with associated feelings of well-being, help us to bond with our partner and feel good about ourselves, promoting mental wellness. 

They are good for our physical health as well, we can’t be physically well unless we are also emotionally well. Sexual contentedness is associated with healthier behaviours all round, leading to better levels of physical health.
