8 Celebrities Love Sex Toys and Here is Why

Celebrities, they’re just like us! They’re sexual beings who care about pleasure and getting that big-O. Yes, it’s hard to believe that in between all those lengthy red carpets, grueling TV interviews, and glamorous award shows, they have time to put anything else on their plates (or in their pants). But plenty of celebrities have disclosed their love of sex, and have even spilled the tea on the sex toys they use and love. Destigmatizing masturbation and sexual health in general is incredibly important, especially during a time when most young adults are learning about sex through porn, which can be very misleading (no, she likely won’t be screaming and quivering in ecstasy 30 seconds into sex, especially if you open by jackhammering her vagina with your finger).
