Discussing Sex Toys With Friends

by Raunchy Republic Manager on February 3, 2011

When it comes to talking about things with friends there aren’t many topics that are considered too sensitive for discussion but is talk of sex toys in, or out? Are your friends likely to join the conversation with a keen interest or simply sit and squirm in their seat?

Many people who see themselves as open and adventurous still struggle to speak openly about sex, even with close friends. It’s therefore no surprise that sex toys rarely come up in even raunchy conversations but this seems to be slowly changing. Women in particular are more likely to chat about where they go to buy vibrators or which types of sex toys they have tried. Gay men are also very open and honest about sexuality.

Most conversations about anything sexual tend to follow a few drinks with friends. As your inhibitions are worn down by the alcohol we tend to become far more willing to discuss sex and the scene is ripe for a healthy chat about your favourite sex toys. While this can sometimes be a little awkward at first but it usually isn’t long before everyone is having their say, often with some great stories about personal experiences or early experimentation with adult toys.

Even though you may consider yourself to be fairly close with the people you are talking with you’ll probably find that the amount of information you offer is given in small, incremental chunks. We all tend to continually assess and re-assess the current vibe of the conversation, only offering more raunchy details if we believe that is where the conversation is going. We also tend to build on what has already been said so that we don’t jump in and say something that will shock everyone else at the table.

Be prepared for some sheepish looks the next time you see your friends though. Sex toy conversations are often revealing but soon enough everyone will be comfortable enough to laugh about it. And who knows, it may even lead to a naughty rendezvous with one of your friends!
