In reality, there’s not much difference between heterosexual and homosexual sex toys. In fact, adult toy manufacturers tailor their products to the anatomy of either men or women, or both in the case of sex toys for anal pleasure. The aim of these toys is to give pleasure by taking into account the specificities of each sex’s body. For example, a clitoral vacuum cleaner can be used by both straight and gay women. Similarly, a penis ring can be inserted by a man during vaginal penetration with a woman, or anal penetration with a woman or a man.
