should i tell parents about sex toys

I’m really curious about this: should I tell my parents about sex toys? To be honest, I have no idea where to start.

First off, I know my folks aren’t big on the idea of sex toys. They still get uncomfortable when the subject of sex education is brought up. But, I’m at the age where I’m discovering my sexuality and feeling curious about different things, and so I’m wondering if I should bring it up.

My parents have always been so open and supportive with me and kind of let me choose how I want to explore different areas. I do think they’ll be understanding about this topic, but I’m still feeling a lot of anxiety. I mean, I know they’ll be shocked and may have lots of questions.

Even though it’s uncomfortable, I think it’s worth a discussion. My parents have gone above and beyond for me, and I think this is something they need to know. So, I take a deep breath and start the conversation.

I hold my breath as they exchange a look, not sure what to expect. Then, remarkably, to my surprise, they laugh and give me a hug. “We were expecting you to come to us with this sooner or later,” my mom said. “We know that as you explore your sexuality, this could happen.”

Having them react like this was such an incredible relief. They obviously had some reservations, though, because they spent the rest of the conversation giving me all sorts of advice about safe sex practices and pleasure. At one point, I think my mom even asked me to not go too wild!

We ended the conversation on a light note, but I was still a little bit anxious. What if they actually weren’t okay with it? But, they were, and it made me feel more comfortable about breaking out of my comfort zone and exploring new things.

Now that I have talked to my parents about sex toys, I want to learn more about them. I want to find different ways I can use them to enhance my sexual experience. So, I start doing some research on different types of sex toys and learning about the different types of sexual pleasure they can provide.

I’m looking into different vibrators, dildos, lubes and Kegels balls. 🤩 But, what I really want is an unobtrusive and discreet toy that can be used both solo and with a partner. So far I’ve come across a few options that seem to suit my needs.

I’m starting to feel excited. I mean, with sex toys, I can explore greater levels of pleasure and sensuality! And, I can do so without feeling ashamed or embarrassed. That being said, I’m still feeling a little nervous about it.

I’m so thankful that I got to have this talk with my parents, and that they were understanding. It was one of those moments where I was reminded how radically accepting my parents are and I’m immensely appreciative of that fact.

In the end, it’s important for us to have these loaded conversations with our parents about sex toys, because it’s only through dialogue and education that we can destigmatize sexual exploration. Plus, I think it’s important to remember that our bodies and our minds are always worth taking care of and exploring. 💕
