Every relationship reaches a point where you might want to spice things up in the bedroom. For many, this means experimenting with sex toys and foreplay that lead to orgasm. However, many adult toys are designed for solo use. While great for some "me time," what if you want toys to enhance your time together?

To help you orgasm with your partner, we've put together the Complete Guide to Couples Sex Toys.

A Brief History of Sex Toys

If it's been a while since you restocked your adult toy box, you'll be surprised to learn about the vast array of sex toys available today in all shapes, sizes, colors, and even flavors.

Archaeologists have discovered sex toys dating back to the time of China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, around 221 B.C. Some of these ancient toys were found in the same tomb as the famous Terracotta Warriors, perhaps explaining the smiles on some of the soldiers' faces.

The invention of electricity brought sex toys into the high-tech era, with doctors using the first vibrators to treat "hysteria" in female patients. Interestingly, electric vibrators were invented more than a decade before electric irons or vacuum cleaners, proving that orgasms have always been a priority.

Recent technological advances have pushed sex toys into the digital age. Today's toys are no longer just your average vibrator but incorporate everything from smartphones to virtual reality. Modern toys can also be used together in the bedroom, transforming them into couples' sex toys.
