Dr Hitesh Shah, a renowned sexologist told Afternoon Voice in his exclusive interview “Using sex toys for some change is fine but for the long run, it impacts their emotions. These gadgets can’t give them emotional; support or compassion. It’s so mechanical and self-act, having a partner and having a toy is a huge difference for the wellbeing of a person. There are chances that they can get too dependent on their sex toy. Manual masturbation is more of a gentle, luxurious experience, you don’t need to let that go just because you get a sex toy, and incorporating it from time to time will keep you from becoming dependent.”
He further elaborated, “Use of sex toys does not impact the emotional health immediately, but if they get addicted to this kind of pleasure then it will affect their relationships in the future. They will not think of sex in context to relationships and invariably this will impact the healthy sexual and emotional connection between both partners. Once in a while for a change it is ok, otherwise, this is not recommended as a healthy solution.”

Now things are changing fast, no one has time to invest on lose on emotional relations or wait for the partner to satisfy one another.”
Jacky a working professional said, “Most of the time what folks think is sexual thwarting is a lack of satisfaction with something else going on in their lives,” emotions and sex life is bookish terms nowadays, one needs a solution and no risk, this is safest.”
Sexologist Dr Shirish Malde believes there should be a local market for sex aids, he says, “No stores or famous outlets or even malls in Mumbai sell sex toys since they are still in the grey zone and thought illegal. Though sometimes we do have to prescribe these sex-enhancing tools to our patients, we buy them from certain reliable hawkers.”
Markets, sexologists in India have to mainly depend on peddlers and local smugglers to get them the required sex toys for their patients.
Dr Kuldeep Bawle says, “In some cases, sex toys are essential to cure our patients’ sexual dysfunctions.”
