Never too old for a good time!  

Many things change as we age and medical and physical ailments can get in the way. That doesn’t mean that just because our body is slowing down, our sex lives have to as well. Everyone needs a satisfying sex life for physical and mental health and that sentiment doesn't change as you get older. 

Things to consider:  

While there are plenty of innovative New Sex Toys on the market, many of which can be used by anyone, there are certain considerations some people may need to take as they age. These include:

  • Difficulties maintaining an erection. 
  • Difficulties reaching orgasm.
  • Ergonomics (using a product that is easy to hold and operate).
  • Overall health (a variety of conditions that may or may not be related to older age such as arthritis) 
  • Incontinence (causing weakened pelvic floor muscles)

Sex Toys Can Help:  

Often, the use of a sex toy or enhancer may be able to help you enjoy a fulfilling sex life (either partnered or solo) and can help to maintain an intimate bond within your relationship.

While there are not as many toys that are specifically marketed towards mature aged people, a number of products can address certain issues that a mature aged person may be experiencing.

Benefits of Sex:  

Sexual activity, solo or partnered, is a vital part of healthy ageing. Orgasms are amazingly effective for reducing anxiety and depression and increasing your sense of well-being. And during these stressful times, we can use all of the stress relief we can get! Other benefits of sex include boosted libido, lower blood pressure, lowers heart attack risk, lessens pain, improves bladder control in women and may even reduce a man's risk of prostate cancer. You'd almost think sex was the miracle cure for all! 

Challenges some women face:  

Orgasms are sometimes harder for women to reach after menopause due to reduced pelvic blood flow and loss of sensitivity. Because of this, mature aged women may need prolonged manual stimulation, but arthritic fingers and wrists may tire. This is where sex toys can help. 

  • Vaginal Dilators: After menopause, your vagina becomes drier, less elastic, narrower, and shorter. This process can happen sooner for women who have had cancer treatments, or a surgery to lower their risk of cancer. To help you with these changes, you can use a vaginal dilator and begin vaginal dilator therapy. You will start vaginal dilator therapy using the smallest dilator in your kit, and then slowly increase the dilator size over time as you feel more comfortable. The Inspire Silicone Dilator 5 Piece Set has ergonomically curved tools that are designed to improve intimate experiences and to aid sexual health.

  • Kegal Balls, Eggs and Bullets: Kegel exercises are done to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. These muscles are especially important for sexual function and orgasmic release but they are also needed for other bodily functions as well. These muscles provide support for vital organs in women such as the bladder, vaginal canal, uterus, and rectum. Devices such as Kegel balls (also called eggs) can be used as part of your pelvic floor exercise routine. We recommend the Pretty Love Elvira, as it’s used to train, tone and tighten your pelvic floor. We’re confident you’ll have fun while you're doing it. The Je Joue Ami - Pelvic Floor Weights tone and strengthen your PC muscle for stronger orgasms and more. The progressive three-step set of soft, smooth pelvic weights allows you to train your PC muscle at your own pace and suits women of all ages and fitness levels.

  • Vibrating Body Wands: Vibrating body wands are ideal for those who have limited flexibility and have trouble reaching those hard to reach places. They are a great massage tool if you have a sore neck, back or feet, and are also great for external stimulation for those who want a lot more power in their toys. We recommend the We-Vibe Wand Stimulator. Because of its attachments, longer ergonomic design and flexible head, it’s perfect for those with reduced flexibility. 

  • Sexual Enhancers: A woman's sexual needs change throughout life as do her body's hormonal responses. Sometimes, a woman also need an extra boost to help her reach her pinnacle of pleasure. Whether you need an extra boost of stimulation or lubrication for vaginal dryness, many women often find comfort in adding a sexual enhancer to the equation. Enhance your libido and add a little spice to your sexual encounter to discover the difference a little sexual enhancement will make to your sex life. Vaginal dryness is also a common issue in younger and older alike, and it can be helped by applying Jo Renew Vaginal Moisturiser which is an intensive moisturising cream specifically designed for women. The blend of moisturisers, including bisabolol, aloe vera, and cucumber fruit provide a gentle daily use formula designed to relieve vaginal dryness. 

  • Finger Vibrators: These handy clitoral vibrators are cute, comfortable and feel great if you don’t need super-strong intensity. They’re small and easy on arthritic wrists because you don’t have to lift or hold them up; just slide it onto your preferred finger and press it gently to your clitoris and rest your palm on your pelvic region. Toys such the Pretty Love Finger Bunny and Charged FingO Finger Vibrator are lightweight and simple to use and undaunting for vibrator newbies. 

Erectile dysfunction:  

A common issue that men face as they age, or because of other underlying health conditions is erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the inability to maintain an erection during intercourse. While it’s not a huge issue if it happens occasionally, if it happens more often than you or your partner would like, it can be a cause for concern. This can affect his self confidence, cause stress and contribute to relationship issues but it may also be a sign of an underlying health issue. We advise men to seek advice from a GP to see if there are any medications or therapies that might help. 

Solutions for erectile dysfunction:  

There are things men can do to help maintain a fulfilling sex life. 

  • Cock Rings: Cock rings are an option for those who can get an erection but cannot maintain it for intercourse. They can also increase sexual pleasure by changing the way an erection feels. They are generally simple and inexpensive, depending on what options you choose. The Renegade Super Soft Power Rings are designed for supreme comfort and enhanced performance. Super soft silicone rings are ultra stretchy and pliable, delivering ultimate pleasure and satisfaction. Cock rings are also suitable with most Lubricants.
  • Strap ons: Strap ons are a great way to enjoy sexual intercourse with your partner without having to worry about keeping erect. They are made to wear as a belt. We recommend trying a hollow penis with a super soft liner for inserting. Flaccid or semi-erect with some lubrication, you slide your penis into the hollow portion. This allows you to connect with your partner in a more usual way. Strap on devices come in a multitude of sizes, materials and skin tones. The Everlaster Stud Wishbone Strap-on Harness w/ Hollow Dildo is great for men suffering from premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction. The superior 4 way adjustable harness keeps your comfort in mind and fits over a flaccid penis, giving you the ability to continue pleasing your partner for as long as you like.
  • Penis Pumps: A penis pump is a device designed to help achieve and maintain an erection by drawing blood into the penis via air suction. It’s not a cure for erectile dysfunction, but can help increase your ability to have sexual intercourse. The Pump Worxs Beginners Auto Vac Kit is made from thick, heavy grade acrylic and marked with metric gradations to measure your growth. When you've reached your desired size, simply push the quick-release button under the power button to instantly relieve the pressure.
  • Masturbators: They say if you don’t use it, you lose it. Well, masturbators are perfect for the man who needs some extra stimulation when masturbating. The Fun Factory Libre Cobra II is a penis vibrator that surrounds the top of the penis and doesn't need to be moved back and forth by hand - so you can just concentrate on breathtaking sensations and enjoy the ecstasy! The Optimale Secondskin Silicone Warming Penis Stroker is ideal for those with erectile dysfunction because you don’t even have to be fully erect to gain the benefits of this toy. It encases your penis in a wraparound fashion and has individual buttons that operate the vibration and warming features, giving you the power to combine and time the stroker's stimulating modes to perfectly pleasure you.

Repair & renew:  

Growing older is a fact of life that is unavoidable, and for many, so is an ailing body. It’s normal to get glasses if your eyes are failing, hearing aids if your hearing is diminishing and a hip replacement if your hip gives in. So it only makes sense that you would seek aids to help keep your sexual health at its optimum.

Older is not quieter!  

Leaving our youth behind doesn’t mean we have to stop having fun. It just means we may need to make a few changes to keep the fun alive. Trust us… getting older certainly does NOT mean things have to get quieter! Rock this lock down with some hot sex play and get as loud as you want.
