Here’s everything you need to know about using sex toys post-menopause
You’re right to search for the best sex toys for menopause. Sex toys and menopause can be a match made in heaven.
Here’s the thing, for women going through “the change” sex toys are about far more than orgasms. Regularly using sex toys and vibrators may help curb menopause symptoms. (scroll down for product recommendations)
Yup, you read that right.
Here’s how this works:
Decreased estrogen can often cause a dip in vaginal blood flow resulting in vaginal dryness, orgasm difficulties, and a lower-than-usual desire for sex.
Regularly using sex toys, particularly clitoral vibrators, may help keep your sexual functioning in tip-top shape. For menopausal women, the most beneficial byproduct of using a vibrator is increased blood flow.
Increased blood flow to the vagina and vulva can help create natural lubrication, increase sensitivity and boost arousal making sex much more enjoyable.
Sex toys are a joyful solution to an age old problem
For many menopausal women, orgasms can be elusive. Then, when you finally do achieve one it may not be as powerful as it used to be. Combine this with low arousal, and low vaginal lubrication, and this can result in a decrease in desire which can really affect intimate relationships.
Vibrators, a joyful little invention, can help menopausal women improve arousal, lubrication, libido, and orgasm potential. With consistent orgasms, even your pelvic floor muscles can be strengthened and your vaginal tissues rejuvenated.
Think of it as a very enjoyable “workout” for your sexual health. The more consistent you are, the better your vaginal blood flow, the more lubricated your tissues will become and the easier orgasms will arrive.
Gynecologist Dr. Prudence Hall agrees. She says “Masturbation is part of getting the tissue healthy and vital.”
Not only do sex toys feel great, but they’re also good for you.
The very best sex toys for menopause & post-menopause
No doubt, the best sex toys for menopause are powerful clit stimulators. The clitoris is the epicenter of female pleasure and arousal. When the clitoris becomes the star of the show, pleasure isn’t far off.
Lucky for us, these days clitoral vibrators come in various forms.
#1 Powerful vibrating wand massagers
So, some vibrators are buzzy and others are rummmmmbly.
The buzzy types offer more of a surface-level stimulation. For those needing powerful stimulation, they are nothing to write home about.
On the other hand, rumbly, powerful vibrators stimulate deeper into the surrounding muscle and nerves offering a far more intense orgasm.
If you’re looking for the very best sex toy for menopause – look no further than this cordless, rechargeable, 3 speed & 10 pattern vibrating wand massager.
The Bewitch’d Vibrating Wand Massager is definitely a rumbler.
It’s absolutely everything you’d want in a clitoral massager.
#2 Clit suction toys
Suction toys come in a very close second to wand massagers. These sex toys are newer to the market and have created quite a stir.
These vibrators are famous for offering powerful orgasms in under 60 seconds.
They are designed to stimulate the entire clitoris as the air pulse suction surrounds the area. The sucker never actually touches the clitoris, but envelopes it. The suction increases blood flow, skyrockets arousal and makes orgasms easy as cake.
These suction vibrators are so powerful they damn near broke the internet when they came out.
Aura, the 3-in-1 clit sucker, is our best-seller here at BerryLemon. It is versatile, powerful, and reliable.
When using a double-ended clit sucker like Aura we’d recommend applying lubricant and working your arousal up with the vibrator side before using the suction.
#3 Internal toys are a great option too
Using sex toys internally can be great for vaginal lubrication and arousal. For those with vaginal dryness, this might pose a challenge. But if you can swing it, while listening to your body and applying lubricant of course, vibrating dildos are really great.
Our vibrating dildo Indie is a double-ended stimulator that can be used externally or internally.
If penetration is your fave, opt for vibrating dildos and water-based lubricant. We’d recommend also building up your arousal before exploring penetration to give your body time to respond to the stimuli.
Let's talk vaginal discomfort and sex toys
This is a problem for some folks. But, lubricant is a wonderful addition to your sex toy explorations.
Everyone can benefit from using lube to enjoy frictionless stimulation, but for those with vaginal dryness, it’s a requirement.
When you’re post-menopausal the vaginal tissue may become dry and fragile. Solution this by applying water-based lubricant to your vulva and on top of any insertable sex toy.
