As people become more intimately acquainted with their body and its capacity for pleasure, their natural curiosity becomes engaged. They begin to explore ways to enhance and build on the sensations. A 2009 study published by the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that more than 52% of women in the United States have used a vibrator.
“The study about women’s vibrator use affirms what many doctors and therapists have known for decades–that vibrator use is common,” according to Debby Herbenick, associate director of the Center of Sexual Health Promotion, “It’s linked to positive sexual function such as desire and ease of orgasm, and it’s rarely associated with any side effects.”
Obviously there are plenty of positive benefits to enhancing one’s sex life with enhancement products. Shopping for sexy toys has been made easier for those desiring a more privacy than brick-and-mortar stores provide, thanks to the internet and pleasure parties. Still, it’s not always easy to know what to look for, or perhaps more importantly, what to look out for.
Should this scare you away from buying something new to play with? Absolutely not! It just means that whatever shopping method you choose for shopping, you should be armed. Knowledge is power.
There are so many fabulous benefits to be had by taking a little time to research and buy the right product. Take the time to find something you like, then get to know yourself on a deeper, more intimate level. Your sexual and physical health are worth it.
