Feb 12, 2024

Well, well, well, look who's curious about the connection between sex toys and health! It's not all about the naughty giggles and blushing cheeks, you know. There's a whole world of health benefits hidden behind those colourful, buzzing contraptions.

You might be thinking, "Oh, come on! Are you pulling my leg?" Not at all, dear reader! You're about to embark on a journey that'll make you see your favourite bedside drawer in a whole new light.

The Health Benefits of Sex Toys

Let's have a chinwag about something spicy. Forget that bottled chilli sauce - we're talkin' sex toys. Yep, you heard it right. And did you know these toys are not just for kicks and giggles but also have bumper health benefits?

Things are about to get interesting, folks.

Feel, Look and Sleep Better

Sex toys are total powerhouses when it comes to making you feel, look, and sleep better. If you think I'm pulling your leg, here's the scoop. It's not just a delicious bedtime story your dearest vibrator is granting you; it's also unloading endorphins by gallons. These feel-good hormones are the sworn enemies of stress and insomnia. That's a quick Do Not Disturb sign right there!

But wait, we aren't stopping at better sleep.

Did you know that these sextech wonders can make you look younger? That's right. Regular orgasms keep your blood pumping healthily. This translates into a radiant glow. And forget expensive facial creams; a little "teatime with toys" will take care of those pesky wrinkles.

Surge in Body Confidence

Who's got time for self-doubt when you're busy experimenting and discovering your own body? Sex toys provide a platform for solo exploration. This not only boosts your self-esteem, but also takes your body awareness to a whole new level.

Strengthening Relationships

Whether you're playing solo or adding a little spice with your partner, sex toys can bring a real zing to relationships. Introducing toys into the bedroom can break mundane routines and keep the closeness fresh. If you're already going "ooh" and "aah", just wait for what's next.

Helpful for Post-Menopause Women

During menopause, ladies often face issues such as vaginal tightness and dryness. Using sex toys can help solve these discomforts, according to medical studies. These toys can promote blood flow to the area, helping to keep the vagina healthy, moist, and maintaining its elasticity.

Enhancing Intimacy and Communication

Who says sex toys are a third wheel? Nope! Let's set it straight: far from it, they're actually like a miraculous little cupid, especially beneficial for amping up intimacy.

Picture this - you and your partner sitting together, giggling like naughty teenagers, while unboxing your latest toy. Sounds like fun, right? Not to mention, it can open up honest conversations on preferences, boundaries, and fantasies. You'd be surprised to know what you'll uncover once the cloak of apprehension lifts!

Onto a more practical stage. Let's say you've got that lovely little rabbit vibrator. Its cute-as-a-button appearance disguises its mind-blowing feature: dual stimulation. The marvel of technology hits two birds with the jackpot or should we rather say, two pleasure points with one toy? Either way, it levels up the intimacy game. No question about it!

But recalling Janet— a sweet Kiwi lass we know, who swears by her little pocket rocket. Janet and her partner discovered they were hitting a bit of a slump, with their sensual life feeling somewhat lacklustre. They decided to give sex toys a try. A couple of orgasms later, Janet says, "Well, I'll be damned! Who knew that 'toy time' could be 'bonding time'? Clearly, we're in for a world of good!" And voilà, Janet had not only hit the 'O-zone' but also stumbled upon a deeper connection with her partner.

Remember, folks, that squeaky wheel gets the grease—or in this case, the good-times-rollin' wheel gets the lube! So, don't be scared to bring props into the play. After all, it's about your pleasure, isn't it? There's no reason why you can't have a good laugh while scouting for the best vibrator in our eclectic collection. And don't forget, every laugh syncs a heart beat and a shared orgasm? Well, let's just say it sparks off a bond that's tough to beat!

So, what's stopping ya? Dive into the world of sex toys, and explore the multitude of ways it can bring more intimacy into your life. There's really no end to the blissful journey, is there?

Improving Sexual Satisfaction and Confidence

Remember the thrill of passing your driving test? The sheer ecstasy of finally getting your hands on that oh-so-coveted license? That's nothing compared to the joyride that awaits you in the world of sex toys. In fact, it's not overstating to say that sex toys are the Ferrari of sexual pleasure - the only thing you lack is the key to ignition - or in this case a confident conversation.

It's as simple as this. Sex toys, bless their silicone hearts, can boost your sexual satisfaction and pour a healthy dollop of confidence into your bedroom exploits. It's not about replacing human intimacy - it's about enhancing it. Your satisfaction levels rev up when your desires are acknowledged and fulfilled.

Take Lucy and James for example. Two lovebirds living it up in sunny Auckland, whose bedroom adventures had descended into a long series of box sets - until they decided to add a dash of salsa by popping into the local Peaches & Cream. A few vibrators, dildos and butt plugs later (hey, we're all adults here!), their pleasure quotients have rocketed faster than a SpaceX shuttle!

Then there's Graham and Sophie. Yes, that couple from the breath-taking landscapes of Queenstown. Sophie spotted Graham eyeing those cock rings and male pleasure devices online. She didn't know then that this single purchase from Peaches & Cream would boost Graham's self-confidence to new heights. Now, he considers himself Zeus in the sheets!

Do you notice the recurring theme here? It's not about mere pleasure. It's about self-discovery. It's about building confidence.

When you delve into the world of sex toys, you're not just experimenting with pleasure. You're also exploring boundaries - not just yours, but your partner's as well. More importantly, you're opening dialogue channels that didn't exist earlier. And in this process, you create an environment of acceptance, respect and love - where both partners feel valued.

So, in the grand scheme of things, those purchases from Peaches & Cream aren't mere transactions. They're confidence boosters. They're enablers of satisfaction. They're bridges to understanding. They're, dare we say, life changers?

Strengthening Pelvic Floor Muscles

Let's take a wee detour to a less glamorous but incredibly important benefit of sex toys: strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. Hold up - you've got muscles in your... where?

That's right, mate. The pelvic floor muscles are those hard-working unseen heroes that support your bladder, bowels, and in women, the uterus. They're the one putting the brakes on when you've had eight pints and suddenly feel the urge for a comfort break during the gripping final minutes of an All Blacks match.

You might be saying, "That's all fine and dandy, but what's this got to do with sex toys?" Well, as it turns out, a nifty little toy called a Kegel exerciser is a miraculous helper for these mighty muscles.

Kegel exercisers are like mini gym equipment for your pelvic floor. Like any other muscle in your body, your pelvic floor muscles can be made stronger with a proper workout. They're quite the versatile bit of kit - used for anything from preventing incontinence to aiding recovery after childbirth, and even heightening sexual pleasure.

A study of sex toy users in 2018 by renowned sex researchers Debra Herbenick and Tsung-Chieh (Jane) Fu, found out that:

Sex Toy Users (%)
Kegel Balls
  • 17% used to strengthen pelvic muscles
  • 12% used to enhance sexual pleasure
  • 5% used for incontinence problems.

So it seems, in this neck of the woods, sex toys do a lot more than just spice things up. They literally give your body a leg - or maybe a muscle - up in ways you'd never imagined. From boosting your sex life to banishing unexpected urinary surprises, they're more versatile than a Swiss army knife. The key to success is to choose the right toy for your individual needs.

For instance, Lovehoney's Main Squeeze Double Kegel Balls are highly popular among women who want to add some weight to their workout - figuratively and literally! Meanwhile, the Fifty Shades of Grey Beyond Aroused Kegel Balls Set is perfect for beginners and offers a range of weights for personalised training.

Boosting Overall Well-being

Got a case of the Mondays? Have you considered dangling a set of Kegel balls from your chandeliers? Kidding! But honestly, much more than spicy sessions and pelvic masterclasses, sex toys like your Kegel exercisers could be the unsung heroes of overall wellbeing.

Trust me, folks, it's no laughing matter. I've witnessed the evolution of a shy, timid young woman into a confidence oozing powerhouse. She was struggling with post-partum depression, feeling less than her fabulous self. Then she discovered Kegel exercisers on Peaches & Cream. Started as a way to tone her pelvic muscles - and let me tell you, it's more than just an after childbirth thing - she soon unearthed her inner goddess. It wasn’t long before she was strutting about like a model, radiating self-confidence.

Just like this young lady, you can work your way up the 'mighty' ladder too. Use your pelvic powerhouse to conquer more than just the bedroom. But hey, no pressure to perform Olympic-worthy stunts. Know your comfort zone and remember - this isn't a competition, it's about you. It’s about finding what boosts your satisfaction, tickles your fancy, and (who knows) possibly adds a spring to your step.

Sure, we can't all be medicinal engineers, but you don’t need a PhD to know where to get ‘em. Your next session of online retail therapy on Peaches & Cream could just be the ticket to well-being city. Pull up a cosy chair, get that digital basket handy - this is one shopping spree that’s got more perks than just free shipping. Talk about winning!

So, add those Kegel exercisers into your routine. See the ripple effects go beyond the boudoir and into daily life. Because when you're smiling on the inside, you're glowing on the outside. And there ain't any harmful side effects - unless you count jealousy from your best mates who’ll be green with envy at your newfound tinderbox of poise and pleasure. Risky business, this sex toy shopping, eh?


So there you have it! Who'd have thought that a little bit of 'me time' with your favourite Kegel exerciser could be just the ticket to a healthier, happier you? It's not just about the big 'O' (though let's not downplay that part, it's pretty fantastic). It's about boosting your confidence, your well-being and even helping to tackle those pesky post-partum blues.

And remember, it's not a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. Just like you wouldn't buy a pair of shoes without knowing your size, don't dive into the world of sex toys without knowing what works for you. So, go ahead. Explore. Experiment. Find your fit. Because at the end of the day, it's all about your satisfaction and pleasure. And who doesn't want a bit more of that in their life?
