Sex Toys and Erotica

While the Rabbit vibrator was made famous on "Sex and the City," it's not just the single ladies -- or the single ladies on TV -- who are turning on with toys. Sex toys can be a handy tool to enhance sexual satisfaction, alone or with a partner. Toys are a way to boost not only arousal and orgasm but may also help boost desire, lubrication and the entire sexual experience.

And in addition to toys, erotic material may also heighten your sexual experiences.

Pornographic material, from erotic stories to soft or hard core videos or photos can help some people reach orgasm during masturbation. Porn can also help individuals or couples explore fantasies and open communication about desires. On the downside, though, pornography and erotic materials have the potential to create or widen intimacy problems in relationships. Communication with your partner about your comfort level and your expectations is important.
