Top Sexual Wellness Products
for Seniors & the Aging

Age ain’t nothin’ but a number when you have these sexual wellness aids by your side.

While aging can have a positive impact on your sex life, it also comes with a handful of changes in your body that may require workarounds in order for you to have sex the way you want to. Luckily, there are plenty of easily accessible sexual wellness products on the market to help you do just that!

Whether you consider yourself a senior, aging, or simply want to prep for the future, the following sexual health product categories can help you (or future you) navigate some of the less desirable impacts of aging on your sex life.

Positioning Aids

Sex furniture and positioning aids have been having a ~moment~ ever since How to Build a Sex Room graced our Netflix suggestions, and while it’s true that these sex enhancers are fab for getting kinky and exploring creative positions, they offer far more than opportunities for sexual creativity. If decreased mobility (which tends to accompany aging) is putting a cramp on your sex life and limbs, sex furniture could be just what the doctor ordered. Sexual positioners are designed with ergonomic angles that place bodies in the ideal position for reducing strain while also offering body support.

Each sex pillow design provides a different perk (or, in many cases, multiple perks!) Smaller wedges (like the Lovehoney Elevate Sex Position Enhancer Wedge are a grand match for oral fun, as they lift the receiver’s hips up and towards their partner so the giver doesn’t have to bend forward as much, mitigating neck pain. Fans of doggy style, on the other hand, will benefit from a large sex ramp (like the DOMINIX Deluxe Large Inflatable Wedge, Handcuff and Blindfold Set) that gives the receiver full-body support that takes the pressure off their limbs. And then there are best-of-both-worlds sex furniture duos (like the Lovehoney Ultimate Sex Position Enhancer Set) that you can use individually or together, allowing you to enact countless sex positions with ease!

Kegel Exercisers

With age (and especially menopause), the pelvic floor weakens, which can lead to some undesirable consequences, such as urinary and bowel incontinence and even pelvic organ prolapse. Luckily, you and your pelvic floor have a secret weapon against mother time in this instance: Kegel exercises! Kegel exercises (often simply referred to as “Kegels”) are pelvic floor strengthening workouts, and while you can perform these sexual health improvers on your own, specialized Kegel exercisers can help you achieve better results and guide your process. Plus, who doesn’t love a cute workout accessory?!

So, how exactly do Kegel exercisers enhance pelvic floor workouts? Essentially, these wellness products give you something to squeeze around, making it easier to identify that you’re doing your exercises properly. You can also purchase Kegel exercisers in sets that increase in weight so you can amp up your workout as your pelvic floor grows stronger, or choose a Kegel set with interchangeable weighted balls to up your strength-training game when your body is ready for more intensity. You can even find double-duty Kegel exercises that vibrate so you can use them to improve your health and then reward yourself with a much-deserved orgasm!

Cock Rings & Penis Pumps

Many penis owners find it more difficult to obtain or maintain an erection when they get older, with some even developing erectile dysfunction. Big pharma may have led you to believe that little blue pills are the only solution, but there is at least one other option: sex toys! More specifically, cock rings and penis pumps can be helpful tools for those struggling to get or keep it up.

While penis pumps’ reputation implies they’ll magically make your johnson larger, penis pumps are actually better used as an avenue to get hard – which, I suppose, would technically make your schlong bigger if you’re a grower, not a shower. These devices work by using a vacuum effect to draw blood into the penis, engorging it and resulting in an erection.

Those who can get it up (whether that be with the help of a penis pump, naturally, or otherwise) but struggle to keep it up will likely find high value in one of the most popular male sex toy categories around: cock rings! Also sometimes referred to as “penis rings” or “c-rings,” cock rings work by constricting blood flow so that it remains in the penis, so you can remain erect!

Dilators

It should come as no shock that menopause can put your body through the wringer, bringing about a whole bunch of hormonal changes. One of these hormonal switch-ups is a decrease in estrogen, which can cause vaginal narrowing that makes penetration painful. For those whom penetration is a large part of their partnered sex life or who simply love penetrative play, this can be a major bummer. You don’t have to resign yourself to a penetration-free sex life, though – vaginal dilators can help vaginas regain flexibility to diminish or eliminate penetration-related pain.

Dilators are cylindrical rods users insert into the vagina for increased elasticity over time. These sexual wellness tools almost always come in sets of various graduating sizes for users to progress through as their love tunnels gain the ability to handle penetration from larger objects. While dilators can be life-changing for some suffering from pain with penetration, they aren’t a good match for everyone, so be sure to consult with your doctor before starting dilator therapy.

Lube

I’m sure you already knew this one was coming, as lubricant is one of the most basic and easily accessible sexual wellness products and is often associated with vaginas of a certain age. As vagina owners get older, their bodies’ ability to produce sexual lubrication naturally diminishes, making lube a must-have for getting jiggy. But it’s not just older vagina owners who stand to benefit from lube. Personal lubricant is also clutch for:

  • Shower sex

  • Easing entry of large objects and body parts

  • Enhancing sensations

  • Anal play (lube is actually a requirement in these instances!)

While lube is a fab tool as you age, we can’t recommend this sexual health staple enough for people of all ages!
