A spokesperson for TENGA commented: “Fantasies can be incredibly empowering where you’re the master of your own destiny and can decide exactly what you want your leading man or leading lady to do.
“Not only will your crush be gorgeous, but they will fancy you back with equal vigour.
“The brain is our most important sex organ, and a celebrity crush can be the perfect focus for a self-pleasure fantasy.”
Women have recently revealed that sex is much better for them at a certain age.

Among the things that get better with age for women, sex and body confidence make the cut.
Women aged 45 to 65 are more body confident, are experiencing more life adventures and enjoying a new lease of life as a result of children moving out of the family home, according to the research.
One in five women aged 45 plus say their sex life is better now compared to their younger years. In fact, almost half of women aged between 45 and 65 would like to increase the time they spend between the sheets.
A third of women aged 45 to 65 have undertaken a career change in their 40s or 50s, and one in three women class themselves as the main ‘breadwinner’ in the household.
