Psychiatrists and sexologists have witnessed a rise in the number of women using sex toys. Not only more women are coming to experts and asking about it, but experts mention that women’s sexuality is now going beyond procreation.
Dr Vaibhav Lunkad, a sexologist from Pune, said, “The number of women coming and asking us on whether they should use sex toys has increased recently. Movies, web series and documentaries are making women aware of such products. Information on the Internet is making it normal to talk about sex toys.”
Experts suggest that your sexual life has a link to your emotional well-being. Dr Prakash Raval, a sexologist from Pune, said, “In many cases, emotional well-being is dependent on sexual well-being. In this scenario when traditional marriage set up is not able to give pleasure to women they are coming to experts and asking ways to seek the same.”
Dr Raval informed, “The sale of sex toys has increased recently in the country. Many online sale portals have come up even though it is banned in India. We can’t deny that more and more women are coming out of guilt to have pleasure without a partner.”
Experts mention that when women are not getting sexually satisfied they are not shying away from using sex toys. More and more women are now not looking at sexual health just as ‘family planning’ thing but are even exploring different ways to have pleasure.
Dr Amar Panase, Psychiatrist from Pune said, “Earlier talk about sexual health was broadly limited to use of contraceptives and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). But now more and more women are coming and asking us whether the use of sex toys is harmful or not.”
