Hands up for the ultimate sexual pleasure

  • Written by Saville

Technology and sexual wellbeing go hand in hand. With innovation and forward thinking being important for sexual wellbeing brands like Lovehoney when developing products to ensure customers are benefiting from the latest technology.

This month is International Masturbation Month, celebrating going solo. Lovehoney research revealed nearly half of Aussies (45%) enjoy going solo multiple times a week for an average of between 5 - 10 minutes. 

The findings provided insight into Aussies favourite methods with 85% of penis owners revealing their hands are their go to. Whilst half of vulva owners choose their hands.

Lovehoney’s Sexologist Chantelle Otten says “Sex toys can add a whole new dimension to the sexual experience enhancing the experience” and four out of five Aussies agree stating that the using a toy enhanced their experience and satisfaction.

To demonstrate the differences between the pleasure offered from sex toys and our hands, Lovehoney has created the Masturbation Hands. One for penis owners and another for vulva owners, the Hands use data on the most popular pleasure and technology utilised to deliver the ultimate sexual pleasure.

Featuring extra fingers, width and skin texture to pleasure a penis, or the rabbit inspired fingers and PleasureAir technology included on the vulva hand. As shown, we would have to evolve dramatically to take over from our favourite products and deliver the same pleasure.

Rob Godwin, Director of Lovehoney Australia says “We wanted to spark conversations around sexual happiness and to highlight the many benefits sex toys can have on pleasure. Encouraging Aussies to celebrate their bodies and explore a new world of sensations.” 

Mixing things up and introducing sex toys helps understand what turns you on and keeps things interesting by offering different sensations and stimulations compared to your hand. So this Masturbation May - Go SOLO!
