Vibrators; From Taboo To A New Act Of Selfcare

For years, self pleasuring, let alone using sex toys has been stigmatized. Sexual pleasure and feminine care products were considered taboo and had plenty of shame and prejudice surrounding them. Things have changed for the better. We have seen sex positive show segments on National Television, educative and entertainment TV series such as Shuga promote sex positivity. With the rapid growth of the sex-positive movement, sex has become an act of wellness and a part of open conversations.

The world today, through simple practices, has discovered how taking care of your sexual well-being, while also enhancing your solo and partnered sex life can open to a whole new world of pleaseure. We all know that sex can help you to relax, and take your mind off everyday worries and anxieties. During sex your body releases endorphins and oxytocin, and these feel-good hormones create feelings of relaxation and intimacy, as well as helping to stave off anxiety and depression. We’ve all heard of the importance of self-care for our mental and emotional wellbeing. Self care is a key practice in avoiding burn out, regulating the nervous system and enhancing connection to oneself. But have you heard of sensual self-care?

This is where indulgence meets self-love…. Infusing sensuality into your self-care practices is a beautiful way to increase your sexual self-confidence, reduce stress levels and improve your body image. Taking care of yourself will affect your libido and your desire to be intimate with your partner. Regular self-pleasuring has SO many health benefits! From increasing blood flow, preventing vaginal atrophy, helping with incontinence and that regular orgasms are so good for your whole body. (An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away).

Self-care can come in many different forms, but I deem masturbation to be one of the most important factors for improving self-care. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, these are 5 reasons why sex toys can help improve your level of self-care:


Don’t limit yourself to just one sensation. What greater way to learn more about what makes you feel good, turns you on, or more importantly orgasm than spending some quality time with the sex toy of your choice? A dildo or a vibrator, try them both.

Sexual Empowerment

Sex toys should be celebrated, just as your orgasms should be. When you are truly able to discover what makes your body feel good, you instinctively become more empowered by your body. Sexual empowerment means embracing your unique sexuality and desires.


Sex toys have one goal… to make you feel good. The toy you choose has no ulterior motive to pleasuring you. It is simply there to do just that, and the best way to feel good about yourself is to make yourself feel good, right? Masturbating regularly helps you feel more secure and happy with your body because you are bringing it pleasure.

Sexual Wellness

Masturbation can also release tension, boost concentration, relieve menstrual cramps, alleviate pain, and much more. There is not a pill in the world that can accomplish all these things at once. With those benefits in mind, sexual wellness is an integral part of self-care.


Masturbation is the ultimate form of self-love and is one of the best ways to really get to know yourself. The longest relationship you’ll ever have is with yourself, so make it a great one! Taking care of yourself in 2023 is no longer just about having an effective beauty routine.
