Sex isn't just partner sex. Many of us don't have partners, yet keeping our sexual selves vibrant and healthy is crucial for many reasons. It's true that if we don't use it, we lose it -- and that's true for both women and men.
Some of us have been using sex toys since we discovered vibrating 'personal massagers' some 30 years ago -- or since we created interesting things to do with vegetables in our youth. But others have never used a sex toy and figured they never would.
