Sometimes, using a vibrator in a heterosexual relationship can send mixed messages, either the man thinks that he is not satisfactory enough or the woman feels that she needs the vibrator in addition to her man for satisfaction.

On the other hand, studies have shown that men who use vibrators on themselves or their partner during sex tend to have a higher satisfaction rate and better erectile function.

Studies have also shown that couples that find more novel ways to enhance their sexual experience whether that includes sex toys or not, tend to report a more satisfactory sex life and are more satisfied in the relationship in general.

Using sex toys in a relationship tends to indicate that there is more open communication in the relationship which leads to better understanding and a stronger relationship in the long run.
