In honor of Stress Awareness Month, we’ve rounded up our favorite toys that help you unwind and feel really good at the same time. Unsurprisingly, sex offers a number of health benefits, including better sleep and lower blood pressure, but getting busy has also proven to be effective in reducing stress. We don’t know about you, but we’d take sex over any other relaxation method any day. So go ahead — grab your partner and experiment with these stress-relievers ASAP. Science says they’re good for the mind and body.
