Why Every Woman Should Own a Vibrator

Why Every Woman Should Own a Vibrator

Find the right toy for you and enjoy good vibrations...

 

Though once upon a time, talking about a vibrator – let alone owning one – might have been a taboo topic, it is not anymore. In fact, a 2009 Indiana University (IU) study found that vibrators are showing up in U.S. bedrooms in a big way, with more than half of all women between the ages of 18 and 60 saying they use them either alone or with their partner. Plus, a 2011 study published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy found that most people – male and female alike – have high positive and low negative beliefs about women's vibrator use.

 

As vibrators become more universally accepted and leave the world of “solely a tool for sex,” they’ve become a fun way to enhance your relationship. Read on for some of the most compelling reasons to get one for you and your partner.

 

They May Boost Your Libido

Recent research shows that vibrators may help your libido. In fact the IU research found that, compared with women who hadn’t used a vibrator recently (if ever), those who had used one in the previous month reported higher levels of sexual desire and arousal, as well as lubrication.

 

The study authors noted that the pleasure women get with vibrators may light a spark that causes them to crave more intimacy.

 

They Help You Enjoy More Between-the-Sheets Action

Experts also recommend using vibrators to help achieve an orgasm more easily. About one in four women have trouble climaxing, if they’re able to achieve orgasm all, according to a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association. But sex therapists say that women may learn more to enjoy intimacy even more with the aid of a vibrator.

That’s at least partly because using these titillating tools helps you figure out what turns you on, but also because you can use a vibrator during intimacy to ensure maximum stimulation.

 

They Help You Love Your Body Even More

The Indiana University study also found that women who reported using vibrators were also more likely to have had a gynecological exam within the past year, as well as to have performed genital self-exams during the previous month. Researchers said it could be that using a vibrator helps women feel more comfortable with their bodies and less anxious about their doctor’s visits.

Of course, women may be wary of using vibrators for a variety of reasons – including fear of possible pain – but the Indiana University researchers found that the majority of those who used vibrators didn’t experience any negative side effects, such as genital numbness or pain.

 

Meanwhile, a University of North Carolina study published in 2009 found that vibrators could in fact be effective for relieving vulvar pain, actually making intercourse less painful and intimacy more enjoyable.

 

They Help You Discover a New Level of Intimacy

Most importantly, adding a vibrator into you and your partner’s bedroom routine is a great way to take your intimacy to the next level. This small, intimate tool help you explore new romantic adventures, serving as just another way to bring you closer to your partner both in and out of the bedroom.
