The Millennial: Why millennial women prefer sex toys to men

The dating scene in 2023 is just as unpredictable as a game of Russian roulette, and as if that’s not enough to ponder on, here come millennial women finding solace in a buzzing, whirring, and ever-dependable companion: sex toys. 

Millennial women have decided to take matters into their own hands (literally) and bid farewell to the whims of a man’s sexual performance unpredictability.

With a sex toy, there are no worries about untimely deflation or finishing the race too soon. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, and these toys are here to make sure the finish line is reached with style and satisfaction, without so much as breaking a sweat.

This sexually liberated generation of women choose sex toys as a means to maintain control over their sexual experiences. With a sex toy, a woman can customize her pleasure, experiment with different sensations, and establish a deeper understanding of her own desires. This autonomy allows for a self-centric approach to pleasure, unencumbered by the expectations and needs of a partner.

Looking into the myriad reasons why millennial women are choosing to take pleasure satisfaction into their own hands, you notice that the common denominator in the dating dynamic is that women are avoiding the baggage that comes with laying with a man in this era. Not to mention the STIs/STDs that many carry from cheating and sleeping with numerous women. 

In a world where relationship statuses change as often as Instagram filters, millennial women have embraced complexity like never before, and sex toys offer a straightforward and uncomplicated alternative to navigating the muddy waters of modern relationships. No more deciphering mixed signals, ghosting, or swiping left and right in search of the right mjuls to get the job done. 

No millennial woman is looking to navigate complex relationship dynamics in an era marked by digital connectivity. The rise of casual relationships, non-monogamy, and open-mindedness toward diverse sexual experiences has led some women to view sex toys as a convenient and fulfilling alternative to traditional relationships. Sex toys provide an outlet for sexual gratification without the emotional complexities that can arise from interpersonal connections.

Sexual performance anxiety is also a common concern that can affect both men and women, and in the context of traditional relationships, this pressure can be exacerbated. Some millennial women prefer sex toys because they alleviate the performance-related stress often associated with sexual encounters with a partner.

With a sex toy, the focus shifts from performance to personal pleasure, allowing women to fully relax and explore their sexuality without the fear of disappointing a man by seeming “inexperienced.”

Let’s not forget how when it comes to multitasking, mjuls just can’t keep up. Millennial women are busy juggling careers, social lives, and their favorite Netflix series. Who has time to schedule a sloppy man’s “appointments” when a sex toy is just a drawer away, ready to provide instant gratification without the need for small talk or an elaborate dating ritual? The vibrator understands that time is of the essence, and it’s always ready to make things exciting at the push of a button.

Young adult women nowadays are woke and proud of their sexual allure and needs, and they are not afraid of expressing them. With an ocean flood of private options, gone are the days of awkwardly tiptoeing into a seedy adult store and blushing at the cashier. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, sex toys are just a few clicks away and millennial women can discreetly shop for their new best friend, all while receiving the package in a discreet brown box. 

This convenience factor, coupled with the anonymity and privacy afforded by online shopping, has contributed to the growing popularity of sex toys.
