Depending how we use them, toys can enhance intimacy in the bedroom, or they can be somewhat of a barrier. This often depends on the intention & quality of presence that we bring to the experience of using the toy.
For example, if the toy is a way of compensating for a lack of pleasure or connection, it may temporarily "fill" that void by offering us higher stimulation, but there can be an emotional hollowness that follows.
On the other hand, if there is deep connection already established, a toy can enhance the playfulness & eroticism even more.
We find that a Crystal Pleasure Wand, given that it is not vibrating or over-stimulating, easily leads to a highly connected & intimate experience between lovers, where there is an effortlessly devotional energy that is evoked by the person "using" the wand that is offered to the person "receiving" the wand.
I have found that when a lover has massaged me internally or externally with a Crystal Pleasure Wand, he seems to become even more intentional & attuned to how my body is receiving the wand - because it is such an artful & delicate object.
Any toy, highly stimulating or not, can be an enhancement to sexual intimacy - by bringing elements of play, curiosity, intensified pleasure, experimentation, and so on. Ultimately, we recommend cultivating meaningful intimacy that feels nourishing before bringing the toy into the mix - and allowing the toy to be an enhancement to the experience.
