Who has used a vibrator – raise your hands! (Waving mine right back at you!) Whether you’ve tried one or not, check out the benefits of the buzz.
A vibrator is a good thing that’s actually good for you. Yup – and I’m not just giving you an excuse to buy one!
Dr. Laura Berman’s The Berman Center conducted a study of vibrator use among women, and the findings were resoundingly positive. Hooray!
More women have dabbled in vibrators than you may think: 44 percent of women have vibrator experience. What’s really interesting is nearly 60 percent of women in relationships cried viva la vibrator! Our single gals came (no pun, really!) in just over 33 percent.
News flash: these bundles of joy are healthy for you, too! Vibrator use is associated with better sexual function. Women who use a vibrator have more sexual interest and desire; better arousal; easier and more frequent orgasms; and less pain during and after sex. In addition, better sexual function was linked to higher levels of sexual satisfaction and even enhanced quality of life.
Are we vibrating with happiness yet?
In case you were wondering if you’ll need intervention (e.g., Charlotte in Sex and The City), the study showed you don’t need to be afraid of vibrators — women said they did not become dependent on a vibrator once they started using one. A vibrator was never viewed as a replacement for a partner. If anything, a vibrator has a valuable place during partner sex, since two-thirds of women are not able to orgasm through penetration.
More than anything, women reported they were driven to try a vibrator because of curiosity.
