Sex toys are a crucial part of sexual health, whether you’re in a relationship or flying solo. They’ve become a permanent fixture in the sexual wellness journey of many. These handy tools for self-pleasure should coexist peacefully with your crystals, manifestation candles, and other wellness knick-knacks. They’re pretty harmless (once you figure out how to use them!), increase your chances of having an orgasm, and are durable enough to be considered a smart long-term investment. However, despite their benefits, sex toys still face a lot of regulation, stigma, and unfair judgment.

I need to acknowledge my privilege while advocating for the acceptance of sex toys. Not everyone has the luxury of privacy, and some may face objections from friends and family if they find out. The lack of education about their use turns them into people’s “dirty little secret.” It’s challenging to let your partner or family in on this secret because sex toys are often portrayed as comedic props in mainstream Indian movies. They rarely get depicted in a genuine light. Since advertising and discussing them in mainstream spaces are taboo, they remain hidden in incognito tabs and wishlists. Buyers are too hesitant to hit the checkout button. People who openly talk about sex toys are still outliers in society. While some conversations have started, there are still a few important facts to consider when it comes to using sex toys.

The sex toy market is versatile and inclusive. It doesn’t cater to a specific gender identity, sexuality, relationship status, or even where you live. Recent trends show that while there’s a high demand in metro cities, smaller towns and cities are also catching up. Easy online access to sex toys and the rise of trustworthy brands have contributed to their growing popularity in the country.
Have you ever wondered why sex toy packaging is more secure than a credit card? Well, in India, most sexually active individuals live in joint households, so discreet packaging is essential. Younger consumers living with parents and those with limited privacy also require this service. Sex toys are designed to be discreet. Unless you’re into super-realistic dildos with veins and all (yes, they exist!), you can easily store an innocent-looking lipstick vibrator at home without worrying about your mom questioning its purpose. The need for discretion in India is crucial. It’s not so much about hiding them or feeling ashamed for using sexual wellness products. It’s simply a matter of circumstance.
