Taboo Taboo With Sex Toys

by Ele 13. November 2010 10:52

With the "sex and the city" movement came a steady breakdown of sexual barriers in the media. Is the notion of sex toys officially "out of the closet"?

It seems that the subject of sex toys is definitely gaining acceptance in our society.  People are becoming more comfortable talking about sex toys and more open to trying them.  More women than ever before are openly admitting to owning a dildo or vibrator.  Sex toy retail sales are also at an all time high.  “We’ve seen this category grow pretty significantly over the last couple of years”, Amazon spokeswoman Charmaine Diploa says.    

There is obvious evidence that a movement is taking place.  However, the subject of sex toys still seems to come with a sense of taboo for many. Is this because sex is surrounded by a feeling of shame since we first learn about it in our youth? Sex toys are just one example of this sense of taboo. We find a lack of communication, and even embarrassment, in subjects ranging from sex toys to politics, morality, and personal faith. Is it because of the personal nature that it is tied to?  Perhaps it is just a manifestation of the innate need to keep our most intimate details to ourselves. After all, the nature of sex is as intimate as is gets. The need for privacy and discretion is understood, but why the sense of taboo?    

So the basic question remains: why do we feel embarrassed over something we accept, practice, and understand?
