Simply Solo Spotlight: Who Needs A Guy For Sex Anyway?!
Today’s Simply Solo Spotlight is written by Nicci Talbot, a journalist, editor and author specializing in health, sex and wellbeing. Nicci edits Rude magazine, which explores pleasure, health and personal growth through conscious kink, Taoism, Tantra and more.
Our guest post today is a little more scandalous than I usually feature on Simply Solo, but I figured since half of you guys are reading Fifty Shades of Grey, you could handle it. If you are my mom or my coworker, feel free to skip this week’s post and stand by for normal content next week!
Quick shameless plug: Do you have a story to tell? Advice to offer? Did you just have literally the worst date of your life and you must write about it? I’d love to have you as the next Simply Solo Spotlight! Find out how you can be the next writer for Simply Solo here!
Who Needs A Guy For Sex Anyway?!
So he’s just not that into you … then maybe it’s time to upgrade to a better model. Who needs a man for sex these days when discovering the world of vibrators means you’ll be far too busy to date. Take inspiration from the lovely Eva Longoria who recently confessed, “‘I own two. I have the Rabbit one and I give that as a gift all the time. It’s the best gift to give – an orgasm!” Or the far-from-desperate Teri Hatcher, “To be honest, I don’t know what I want a male for. I have some fabulous electronics to use instead. And any woman who tells you she doesn’t is lying.”
Being single is a special time in your life and it doesn’t come around that often, so embrace it for all it offers. You can get up and go to bed whenever you like, plan the day according to what you feel like doing and shave your pins once a week. Take joy in self-pleasure without having to worry about someone prodding you in the ribs, muttering, “Are you done yet? I’m trying to sleep.” An ex said that to me once, and talk about deflating my inner goddess. Where’s the passion in that? Needless to say, I was not happy about having to use my toys in secret and I gave him the boot shortly afterward.
Statistics show that women who use sex toys are happier, less anxious, more orgasmic and have a better body image than women who don’t. An orgasm a day is the best stress relief I know and will keep you tuned into your body and libido. If your pleasure chest is looking a little bereft, then it’s time to do some shopping. Take inspiration from the erotic bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey and invest in those little silver balls for pelvic toning. Every woman needs a Rabbit habit and the latest models are made from body safe, real feel materials and are rechargeable for hours of pleasure. Can you say the same about a man? Maybe he was a little sensitive about certain activities and you didn’t feel you could explore your sexuality freely. There are toys to pleasure all areas of the body and figuring out what you like makes it easier to direct a future partner. Have a browse through the current range of female vibrators and see what takes your fancy.
Toys that stimulate the G-spot are a great way to explore new pleasures and sensations because they stimulate a different nerve pathway. They are smaller and thinner than regular vibrators and have a curved tip to hit your sweet spot. Best of all, once they are in place, all you need to do is lie back and relax.
A final word from pop diva Missy Elliott, “I gotta bag full of toys and I don’t need none of your boys!” Happy shopping, ladies.
