Welcome to Sealed Section, with certified sex therapist and clinical counsellor, Aleksandra Trkulja. Aleks is a sex-positive and inclusive sex and relationships practitioner based on Gadigal land in Eora, Sydney. This is your modern guide to better sex and better intimate relationships—today we're talking sex toys and self-pleasure.
She’s, He’s, They’s & Gay’s; whether you’re seasoned, or new to self-pleasure, it’s time to add to the self-pleasure kit.
Why invest? Self-pleasure is good for you, darling! You explore what your body likes, which can improve partnered sexual experiences.
Did you know that only 25% of women orgasm from penetration alone? If you’re an internal stimulation person or a squirter, a G-Spot vibrator is for you. They’re also great for exploring your internal spots. For the other 75% of us, our clits need attention!
If you’re an external stimulation person, you’ll love an Air Suction Clitoral Stimulator. These toys produce airwaves that gently stimulate your clitoris and its surroundings. They’re great if you find vibrators over-stimulating on your clit, or want to explore something different. My personal favourite is the Womanizer X Lovehoney Pro40 Rechargeable Clitoral Stimulator.
If you’re like me, you want it all. Dual stimulation toys are inserted into the vagina, while a separate part externally stimulates the clitoris. This can increase pleasure or orgasm intensity for two reasons.
Firstly, dual toys stimulate spots along the vaginal canal, plus the clitoris. And secondly, the internal clitoris looks a bit like a wishbone, and its legs wrap down and around your vaginal canal. Stimulating both internally and externally provides pleasure from all angles.
My go-to is the Lovehoney Indulge G-Spot and Clitoral Suction Stimulator. I prefer this product because I find the mixed stimulation of air suction and vibration super pleasurable.
Sex toys aren’t just for vulva owners! There’s a huge range of sex toys for penis owners, that stimulate the head of the penis. This is often the most sensitive part, so with some water-based lube, inserting the head of a penis into a vibrator or fleshlight can be incredibly pleasurable.
Remember, caring for your toys is essential. So always clean them after every use.
