Vibrator Reviews to Help Couples Jump Start Intimacy

Two of the great myths about vibrator use is that it will alienate your partner and desensitize your body, thus ruining sex with a partner. But both myths are just that – myths, according to Toys for Grown Women,  a Vibrant Nation free report.

“A confident sex partner won’t be put off by a sex toy; in fact, many will welcome it as part of normal sex play as a couple,” the report states. “Approached correctly, sex toys can enhance sexuality within a loving relationship. As one Vibrant Nation member shared, ‘My partner loves to watch me get my orgasm(s) on while I’m using my Hitachi.’

“Another member added, ‘A vibrator can be used as an integral part of intimacy when you have a partner. If you let your partner use it on you, it can re- ally enhance the experience together.'”

Though vibrator reviews often focus on women flying solo, many couples enjoy using vibrators together, both for foreplay and during sex. If you’re looking for advice on the best vibrator for you and your partner, you might want to check out the Toys for Couples section of Toy With Me, a website  devoted to vibrator reviews and created by a 40-something woman experiencing menopause.

The couple’s review section doesn’t just cover vibrators use – there are also reviews of a sex swing and a book on fellatio.

“Today’s luxury sex toys are made for men too, and sharing your play time with your partner can amp up the toy experience by a whole lotta volts,” the site notes in its introduction to Toys for Couples section. “The couple category of toys is ever growing, and now includes the best quality you can find in playthings that range from vibrating cock rings to double-ended dildos to lickable flavored oils.”

Did we mention this site isn’t for the timid?

You may be shy about introducing a vibrator, but it’s actually a great way to jumpstart your sex life, according to Vibrant Nation blogger and menopause health expert Dr. Barb DePree.

DePree says when she recommends a vibrator, women typically respond with surprise. “A vibrator? Me? At my age?!” they ask her.

“Yes, a vibrator, for you – and especially now,” DePree tells them.  “Because, the secret to keeping sex alive after menopause is more.”

If you are shy about introducing these types of sex toys into the bedroom with your partner, you can always keep them for yourself. But consider what you’ve got to gain by giving it a try.
