For some people, smoking or drinking may be the deal-breaker when it comes to making relationships work, but for one Derbymum it’s her sex toy addictionthat’s putting the brakes on her love life.

According to 28-year-old Elysia Downings, she’s spent more £3,000 feeding her gadget habit over the last 15 years, and she claims to masturbate up to 10 times a day.

Back when the single mum was only 13 years old, the personal experience became an addiction as a form of escape from the difficulties in her childhood.

“When I was 13, I didn’t have sextoysso I used household items instead – back massagers, toothbrushes, ­anything that vibrates,” she said, going on to explain that she eventually bought her first sex toy when she was 17.

However, the mum-of-one says the love affair between her and her battery-operated partners is standing in the way of her getting a real boyfriend – apparently men ‘struggle’ with the idea of her mad passion for the toys.

Elysia said: “The guys have to accept that anything with batteries will always get the job done quicker and more efficiently.

“One man I was seeing threw my vibrator out of the window during an argument. He didn’t like the fact that I was using my toys when he wasn’t there.”

According to Elysia, her love of sex toys has become a compulsion and an addiction over the years.

She said: “Vibrators have replaced my sex life.They’re often the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning and I use them up to ten times a day.

“I can find myself getting a bit moody if I haven’t had an orgasm. The more I use my toys, the moredependantI become. It feelssimilar toa cigarette addiction when you get cravings.

“I don’t feel I should be ashamed. Some women have a thing for shoes or bags, I just happen to get my thrills from sex toys.”

In fact, in some ways, it seems they’re the ideal partner when it comes to her self-confidence.

She said: “They won’t judge my naked body if I feel self-conscious. They won’t cheat on me and they won’t break my heart. What I love most is that I feel comfortable exploring my body with them.

“I’d rather respect my body by using a toy than being used by a partner who doesn’t value me and then feel bad about myself afterwards.”

The one person Elysia is careful around is her young son – naturally, she keeps all her sex toys away from him and keeps her room out of bounds to make sure he doesn’t find out about them.

Even with all the knockbacks from men who ‘don’t understand’ her love for the toys, however, she’s still confident that one day she’ll find ‘the one’.

“I’ve met men who find it endearing but most find it off-putting,” she said.

“My perfect man is out there somewhere but for now I’m happy without one.”
