The Woman's Guide to Vibrators
Sex Aids & Satisfaction
Answerthepublic.com is an online tool that grants users insight on popular Google and Bing searches. Hear me out, I promise this is going somewhere.
Now search vibrators on answerthepublic.com. I’ll wait. Assuming we're both on the same site, you see what I see.
“Can vibrators give you UTIs?", "Can vibrators cause a miscarriage?", "Can vibrators cause cervical cancer?" And above all: "Can vibrators cause thrush?"
(A quick Google search informed me that thrush = yeast infection)
This was wildly disappointing, as I was hoping for questions like: "Where can I buy a vibrator?", "Which company makes the best vibrators?", "How do I choose a vibrator?" And above all:
“Help! I got a new vibrator and haven’t left the house in three days! Should I even stop now?”

While shame surrounding sexuality has lessened, for some women, making a purchase that will aid in their sexual satisfaction is still a decision they don’t feel entirely comfortable making. There is still some sad, twinkling glimmer of nonsense that floats around, whispering in the ears of unsuspecting women, telling them their pleasure is meaningful - but to a lesser degree.
LGBTQ+ folks are off the hook this time - you’re certainly doing your part in this golden age of sexual pleasure. Did you know 86% of women in a same-sex relationship have used a sex toy with their partner while only 56% of women in a heterosexual relationship have? Gay men as well are much more likely to use vibrators and other sex toys than heterosexual couples.
Somewhere along the course of vibrator history, the same glimmer of nonsense that whispers rude things in women’s ears told heterosexual men that using a sex toy means that they, as a sexual partner, are not satisfactory (which we all know is a misconception).

Vibrators can't kill spiders or pick up a pizza on the way home.
I’m not sure when some of us came to the conclusion that a penis is the only means of satisfaction, especially when we consider the fact that only 18% of women are able to orgasm from vaginal penetration alone. Additionally - who would want so much pressure put on their sexual organs? Can you imagine if being a man entailed saving the world - one erect penis at a time? It certainly conjures up some interesting imagery, but I digress.
Vibrators are not here to replace men, but terms like “battery operated boyfriend” certainly aren’t helping us to prove our point. In addition to this, masturbation and sex are not mutually exclusive, and certainly not in a relationship. You can participate in both individually and both at the same time - having sex with the aid of a toy.
Vibrators are just that - a sexual aid. Additionally, it’s important to choose what works for you - vibrators aren’t created equally, and every body is different. Click here to peruse what’s available through your friends at No Limits Novelties.
Sex is less societally shameful than ever. It's time that women take hold of their sexual satisfaction, or their vibrator - whatever works, it may be the same thing.
