My husband is upset I bought a vibrator... adult content

I went to a Pure Romance party last night and bought a toy. It is my first one. I've never wanted one, because they creep me out. This particular toy wasn't scary or creepy or large. So I bought it. I told my husband about it, and he flipped out. We have never used any sort of toy. We both watch porn and we both masturbate and it's been totally fine. He was saying isn't what we do enough for you? I enjoy our time together, I just thought it would be fun to have when we do anal since its hard for me to relax if we're not in the shower. I offered to just cancel my order, but he said to just keep it but he doesn't want to see it. We've been married for 4 years, and I didn't expect him to be thrilled, but I didn't expect him to be so upset! The toy is smaller than he is and isn't penis shaped at all :'( on top of that, i wont even have it for a a few months as it is on backorder... what do I do? I want to use it with him but now I worried ill have to hide it and use it in secret. Any advice?

  • my ex husband was like this...Its a double standard in my opinion, He may believe the comon misconception that toys can numb you in many cases it actually makes you more sensitive. Honestly i feel hes acting kinda prudish.....in all things good luck

  • I'd tell him he can watch if he wants but you're going to use it. You are allowed to please yourself alone. He's just being a dumb insecure man who is threatened that your vibrator might do a better job. He needs to get over it. He probably jerks off when you aren't around.

  • Your DH sounds insecure. As for advice, IDK I've never had this problem. My exs have been the type to go out & buy toys and, bring them home.

  • That's odd since he's all for watching Porn with you & anal & everything.

  • that's odd...
    especially, since he is okay with porn and whatnot.
    sounds insecure.

    maybe once he sees it- he will mellow out? or if you use it with him?

    not sure...my hubby is totally fine with toys- he has bought them too

  • Would you want to be replaced by some kind of mechanical device? I wouldn't. So it isn't hard for me to understand why he is upset.
