Contrary to popular opinion, studies have shown that the vast majority of men aren’t intimidated by a vibrator. In fact, many are happy to see their wives or girlfriends using one and include it as part of a happy and healthy sex life.

Vibrators – Perfect women’s sex toys

So when it comes to rubber, plastic or even metal loving, what is it that you should know? We’ve put together some of the essential facts that every woman should know about her vibrator.

They’re good for your health

This may sound like a piece of propaganda started by a sex shop, but the facts stack up: using a vibrator is good for a woman’s health.

We’re not just talking about the effects of an orgasm either, although that is also beneficial for your health.

The wonder that is the rabbit vibrator.

Research has shown that women who use a vibrator are far more aware of their vaginal health and see their doctor more regularly for smears, check-ups and other gynaecological matters. Therefore, when you’re enjoying a little bit of self-loving, it appears you are also bonding more closely with your vagina, encouraging you to take that much better care of it.

Everyone’s a winner….

They won’t last forever

The relationship with your vibrator may be the longest you’ve ever had but the sad facts remain, a vibrator isn’t for life.

It’s worth investing in a good quality vibrator as the studies suggest these can last for a decent length of time, but even these deluxe models will sooner or later have to go to the big sex shop in the sky.

A range of vibrators to suit a variety of tastes

A range of vibrators to suit a variety of tastes.

Cheap vibrators have a maximum shelf life of a year, even if only used periodically. If you’ve fallen in lust with a model made from jelly or rubber, don’t even think about keeping it longer than 12 months, even if it cost more than a top notch gigolo. These kind of materials harbour bacteria and germs which are impossible to get rid of even with the most obsessive cleaning, so the consequences don’t even bear thinking about. Have one last session and say your goodbyes, it’s better in the long run…

They improve your sex life

Even when used solo, regular playtime with a vibrator can help build a happy and satisfying sex life with a partner.

Experimenting and discovering what you like and what feels good is much easier without the pressure of a partner and their expectations. Spending time pleasuring yourself and understanding what you want means you are far better informed to help your partner get it right during sex.

The studies suggest that women who use a vibrator aren’t just better informed but more confident too. A study which researched women’s sexual satisfaction on the Female Sexual Function Index sound that women aged between 23 and 60 all scored more highly if they also used a vibrator.

Just over half of women have a vibrator. One study revealed that 53% of participants admitted to using a vibrator on their own, during foreplay or as part of the main event with their partner. 84% used their love machine for clitoral stimulation with less than two thirds – 64% – using it for penetration.

Conclusion

There’s no denying that vibrators are part of a happy and healthy life for women and that whilst they aren’t a replacement for sex with a partner, they can deliver a number of benefits which can make life better for everyone.
