9 Reasons Not To Be Embarrassed About Preferring Your Vibrator Over All Else

When the women in movies talk about sex, they make it look easy and fun. Everyone shares a story, they have a few laughs, and their entrées arrive just as one of them makes a big sex confession. But try bringing up the topic of sex toys with a group of your ladies, and you can get some mixed looks. This type of openness may not be for everyone, which is fine. But you should feel proud to share the reasons you're not embarrassed about preferring your vibrator to all else — because chances are, most of your friends are just as obsessed as you.

I'm not just tossing out opinions here, the numbers add up. According to Psychology Today, vibrator sales is a one billion dollar business, in the just the United States alone. This means that you aren't the only one crushing on some good vibrations. If all these women who own a vibrator are using it, chances are they have the same love for it that you do — they just may not be as comfortable as you talking about it. That doesn't mean you have to feel ashamed to speak openly about your best friend — er, I mean, vibrator.

If you can't live without your sex toy and think it's the bee's knees, it doesn't mean you need to order an official freak flag. Take comfort in knowing you are totally normal and have nine solid reasons to never be embarrassed about preferring your vibrator to all else.

Vibrators come in handy when you want to move the race to the finish line. If you and your partner tend to climax at different times or if you are in the mood for a quickie, using a vibrator can get you to that orgasm — harder, better, faster , stronger.

2. It's Healthy

There was a time, when vibrators were prescribed as therapy for women, according to Mind Body Green. This is due to the physical, mental, and emotional benefits an orgasm provides. Proving once again, that an O is ultimate ticket to the good life.

3. It Isn't Just For Solo Use

You and your sex toys don't have to be exclusive; getting your partner in on the action is fun too. Experiment with your vibrator on different body parts to discover where else it feels good, as Health suggested. Have your partner place it all over your body and let them know where you like it. And don't forget to return the favor and try your vibrator on their body as well.

4. It Won't Ruin You

There's a dirty rumor about vibrators, one that says if you start using them, you'll get addicted. But as certified sexual therapist Judy Kuriansky explained on Bottom Line, forget that myth and move on. Just because it happened in an episode of Sex And The City, doesn't mean it will happen to you.

5. It Travels

Some vibrators are small enough that wherever you go, it can go too. Toss it in your purse or inside your suitcase and no matter where you travel, you are only a short distance from your next orgasm.

6. Haters Haven't Tried It

If you hear people hating on vibrators, don't be embarrassed that you love yours dearly. The likely scenario is that those haters haven't tried one, or have believed some of the myths about vibrators that make their way around the office water cooler. Drop some knowledge and set those haters straight.

7. You're In Good Company

In a study published by the Kinsey Institute, 52.5 percent of women report having used a vibrator. The age range surveyed was women 18 to 60 years old, and the other finding was that women who use vibrators are more likely to be proactive in their gynecological health. So loving your vibrator means you are among many other woman who feel the same.

8. It Satisfies You

It's been said that if you have to use a vibrator, your sex life must be a yawn fest. But nothing could be further from the truth. According to Everyday Health, women who use vibrators are more sexual satisfied than those who don't.
