“Girls commonly refuse to use sex toys due to several fears. The first one is the fear to get attached to modern devices, since most of them are so advanced that they can compete with experienced men in terms of the sensations. Girls are also concerned that if they offer their partner some device, they will lose face in his eyes. Fortunately, nowadays such problems can be discussed on special trainings, and a wide choice of accessories allows to bring them into the intimate life quite comfortably, giving only pleasure to both partners.
