My girlfriend has never once even slightly hinted at a sex toy, and quite frankly I don't think she'd think too highly of them either, mostly due to inexperience and having to hide it when she's home for the summer. Main reason I'm thinking about it is, I think it's be a nice subsitute from my little member because her and I had intercourse but then decided afterwards that, yeah it was great, but right now it just seems too risky. She isn't on BC yet but plans to go on BC for the added benefits of BC (regulating period, etc). So the few times we did go all out, we relied on condoms, which quite frankly using just condoms isn't that fun because of the paranoia I have with always checking them to make sure everything's a-okay. So anyway, I thought maybe I'd get her a toy to spice things up a little bit. I figured it would pose as a nice subsitute when we are getting down and dirty, eliminating the risk of pregnancy, which in my opinion would make that care free love making session even more enjoyable. The thing I'm unsure of is how to bring it up with her. I've thought about just blurting it out sometime when we're alone and we happen to be talking about sex, I thought about trying to ease it into the conversation we'd be having, etc. Overall, the best thing I could come up with would be to tell her I have a very personal question to ask her, then ask what she'd think about a vibrator. I'd hear her out, then tell her my story of why I think it'd be a nice addition (and smart if we'd use it in place of us having intercourse for the time being). What if I just bought it for her, and someday just gave it to her and explained myself? I think she might even be a little offended though, for me to just hand her a box with a rubber dick in it. Meh... ideas? The other big reason I was thinking she'd like a vibrator is the fact that... are you guys ready for this? She doesn't masturbate... She has tried it in the past and told me she just can't get the same feelings by herself as she does when it's me doing the work, and I guess that makes her frustrated. I would think if she had a little toy to play with, she'd be more prone to masturbate. I honestly wish she would every once in a while, it's one hell of a nice stress reliever, and sometimes when you're cramming for finals you just need that release.
