Senior Sex Toys

Sex Toys for Seniors. We’ve Got Them!

One of the things I look forward to when working at Enchantasys is when a more mature person or couple walk through the door. In the past month I’ve had two couples, well in their 60s looking at toys for the very first time. I’ve also had a newly divorced woman and a single woman who is post-menopausal visit the store.

What these people have in common is that they want to know what kind of options they have to keep their sex life fun and enjoyable even into their golden years. The boomer population is aging and we all need to have places where we feel comfortable and valued when investigating the world of sex toys. Even though they lived through the sexual revolution of the 60s and 70s, it’s sometimes difficult to express the desire to stay sexually healthy and active as an older adult to a stranger. And their needs can be different than others who typically buy sex toys.

I love that our customers can expect a valuable experience from a qualified person who will ask good questions and listen intently to what they have to say. Treating people with dignity and respect regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or cultural background is something we take pride in at all our stores. And nothing is more satisfying to me than when a customer it truly happy about what they purchased and excited about the possibilities. I’ve been hugged, seen big smiles and renewed confidence, and even tears of gratitude from our more mature customers, who haven’t given up on the health and wellness aspect of being sexually active. Even in their 60s, 70s, and beyond.

One of the couples were looking to add more intimacy into their relationship by finding a toy they both could enjoy. The other couple couldn’t get enough info about all of the options. One of them kept saying, “how fascinating!” over and over. The divorced woman was looking to reclaim her sexuality by choosing toys that made her feel empowered. And the postmenopausal woman needed reassurance that there are solutions to the unique circumstances that go along with her stage of life.

I’m proud to say that we carry the toys mentioned in the this Mashable article: “Where are all the sex toys for older adults?” Find them at our stores and right here on our website, Enchantasys.com.
