Every woman responds differently to varying levels and types of sexual stimulation. What gets one woman off quickly may do nothing for another. Even the same woman can respond differently than she ever used to once she’s hit menopause.

In fact, after menopause, you may notice that you need much more prolonged stimulation with more intensity than you ever needed in your 20s or 30s. Sex is just different after 50, and that’s when you might get very interested in vibrators for women.

Most women respond well to direct and sustained clitoral stimulation. Using vibrators for women for this kind of female masturbation is one of the easiest ways to achieve orgasm. However, because some women prefer light stimulation and others prefer more intense stimulation, the same model of vibrator will not work well for everyone. You have to find the type of vibrator that gives you the stimulation you best respond to.

Fortunately, we live in a time when a wide variety of vibrators for women are readily available. Sex stores found in most cities and a plethora of online retailers ready to provide vibrators for women. The rest is up to you!

First, think about the kind of stimulation that really gets you going. Is it light and fluttering, or deep and penetrating? Localized on a small area, or do you prefer stimulation over a larger area?

For example, if you’re looking for a small, localized area of stimulation, you might enjoy something like a “pocket rocket” vibrator for women. On the other hand, if you think you’d enjoy stimulation over a wider area, you might want to try the very popular Hitachi Magic Wand.

Not sure you’re ready to explore female masturbation with a vibrator? How about using a hand-held shower head?

No matter how you choose to pursue better orgasms, vibrators for women are worth considering. Many couples choose to use vibrators together, allowing them to bring a different type of stimulation to their lovemaking without doing too much harm to our aging bodies.

In the Vibrant Nation Health Guide, A Woman’s Guide to Great Sex After 50 Dr. Pepper Schwartz explains:

“A lot of touching and using toys not only stokes up erotic desire, it also gets everyone excited without having a male partner have to last forever during intercourse. For one thing, as we age, our knees, backs, hips, and pelvis need a little relief, or sex will be more painful than pleasing.”
