Menopause and Intimacy: How Sex Toys Can Help

Navigating through menopause and intimacy can feel like you’re trying to find your footing on a shifting landscape. Hormonal changes, vaginal dryness, a dip in libido, and fatigue are just a few of the symptoms of menopause that can pose a challenge to intimacy. But, thanks to growing awareness and education about menopause, sex toy and lubricant manufacturers have started to create toys and lubes that support sexually active aging and your unique needs during this stage of life. 

Understanding Menopause and Intimacy Challenges

First off, let’s talk about what happens during menopause. Hormonal changes lead to decreases in estrogen levels, which affects the skin's elasticity and natural moisture in the vaginal lining, and can limit spontaneous desire libido. While these changes might seem daunting, there’s a silver lining! This phase of life can be an incredible time of exploration and with the right aids, many people experience deeply satisfying intimacy.

How Can Sex Toys Help with Menopause?

Alleviating Vaginal Dryness and Discomfort

As most of us know, vaginal dryness can make sex uncomfortable and even painful. Lube and moisturizers decrease friction and reduce the risk of micro tears during intercourse. When purchasing penetrative sex toys, you will want to pair your selection with a thick, water-based lubricant that won’t run off your toys! Many options are specifically designed for this type of play, including Wicked Sensual Care’s Toy Love lube!

Boosting Libido and Desire

It’s really common for libido to wane during different stages of menopause. But, let's not forget that sexual desire isn't just about biology; it's about psychology too. Engaging with sex toys can reignite the mental and emotional excitement of intimacy. 

Enhancing Emotional Connection

Sex toys aren’t just for masturbation sessions either; they’re fantastic for all kinds of play, partnered or solo. Bringing toys into your intimate relationship(s) can help with communication and deepen emotional connections as you explore new sensations together. This can be particularly important during menopause, as shifts in intimacy can sometimes strain relationships.
