A top psychologist in Zimbabwe has warned that sex toys are destroying marriages in the country. Dr Kudakwashe Muchena said that the adult toys are to blame for the high divorce and separation rates in the country.  

Dr Muchena’s warning comes at a time when there has been an increase in the popularity of the toys in Zimbabwe. The Healthtimesreports that an Online Sex Toy Shop was recently licenced. Other distributors of the pleasure toys have been using social media to market and sell their wares.

One of the most popular sex toy, the sub buzz

According to Dr Muchena, the use of sex toys among married couples will lead to sex addiction and the breakdown of marriages.  

In an interview with the publication, Dr Muchena said, 

“The use of intimate toys or sex toys is around two things which is openness to experience and openness to communication. 

“In our context, Sex Toys have been something that is taboo and has been mostly linked to Homosexuality because they have been seen as a substitute to having a partner. So in a Heterosexual (between a man and a woman) marriage, the use of sex toys can actually destroy that marriage because one of the partners involved may actually feel like they are being replaced by a toy so that may destroy the relationship,” 

Explaining further on the issue, Dr Muchena said, 

“Whilst the idea behind getting a sex toy is to enhance the sexuality of the partners involved. In most cases, it may end up replacing the other partner. Once the part realizes that they can get satisfaction from a toy whether it’s a vibrator or anything, it then diffuses the idea of having a physical partner. For men mostly, we are looking at masturbation even for women, research has shown that a lot of people who are involved in masturbation end up losing that personification in terms of sexual contact, they feel that they don’t necessarily need a physical partner to actually satisfy their sexual needs.”

“Whilst its intention is to help intimacy in marriage, but ultimately it will lead to a separation or divorce because the other party like I said, may feel that they are being replaced by a toy and which might be true because the other party will be getting more satisfaction from a toy than the actual intimacy with a partner so they end up feeling comfortable with a toy than the other party and that can destroy marriages,” said Dr Muchena.
