Women might use these toys on themselves as their partner watches or gently caresses them.
Or men might gently slide well-lubricated toys into their well-lubricated partners.
But once you master the techniques, you'll be on the road to mutually fulfilling lovemaking for the rest of your lives.
Note: Some people object to oral sex and/or sex toys, and that's just fine; no one should feel pressured to have sex in ways that cause distress.
If you embrace new moves you both enjoy with love and laughter, sex sans intercourse might even become the best you ever had.
Here are a few pointers to help you scout out this new terrain: Age-Related Sexual Changes The biggest sexual issues women encounter after menopause are vaginal dryness and a decline in libido.
If men receive sufficiently vigorous stimulation, it's still quite possible for them to have a marvelous orgasm with only a partial erection (or even a flaccid penis).
When men have iffy erections, women can use a dildo or vibrator to achieve that filled-up feeling.
Great sex minus intercourse involves the same leisurely, playful, whole-body caressing that sexuality authorities recommend to lovers of all ages.
But with intercourse off the menu, it focuses instead on the many other ways couples can make love: hand massage, oral sex and toys — specifically dildos and vibrators for women, and penis sleeves for men.
Women now enjoy receiving oral sex more than any other type of sexual activity, research suggests.
This is because cunnilingus has become a mainstream sexual activity, reflecting a change in the tide of sexual behaviour.
