Vibrator use can play a key role in reducing female dryness, decreasing stress, boosting you out of a bad day and even –  somewhat ironically –  relieving headaches.

Debby Herbenick PhD, MPH, lead a study of 2,056 women as the associate director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University, Bloomington. She says vibrator use – even if it was infrequent or over a year ago – correlated with health benefits and better sexual function — specifically, increased vaginal lubrication, less pain and discomfort during intercourse, she told WebMD.

While Herbenick doesn’t use the term “dyspareunia,” she’s basically describing it. Dyspareunia is the clinical term applied when women experience pain during intercourse. It’s usually related to a lack of female lubrication due to hormonal changes brought on by menopause, but it can be an indicator of medical problems such as endometriosis.

There are a number of ways to deal with dyspareunia, including using  vaginal lubricants, extended foreplay, and vaginal estrogen cream- but using a vibrator may be most “rewarding.”

“Using a vibrator, for reasons we don’t understand, helps women orgasm,” Herbenick said.

However, she did point out it could be a that women who use a vibrator more just don’t find sex painful. Still, vibrator use has long been recommended by sex experts as one way to address dyspareunia.

Some women avoid vibrators because they’ve heard it will make desensitize them and make it harder to achieve organism over time, particularly during sexual intercourse. The WebMD article even quotes one psychiatrist who said he worries too much vibrator use can “habituate your automatic nervous system to such stimulation,” but he doesn’t back that worry up with specific examples or research.

The study suggests there’s little reason to be concerned: In addition to better female lubrication, women who used vibrators also reported more desire, arousal and — hear ye, hear ye! — ease of organism.  Only 30 percent of women reported ever experiencing genital pain or numbness as a side effect of vibrator use.

Vibrant Nation readers won’t be surprised. The community’s sex expert, Dr. Pepper Schwarz, is a long-time advocate of using a vibrator to increase sexual pleasure and contends it’s a myth to say vibrators impact your ability to orgasm during sexual intercourse.

“Sometimes we need stronger stimulation than a hand can give without it becoming irritating,” Dr. Schwarz writes in Great Sex After 50. “And sometimes we just need a different kind of stimulation for the sheer eroticism of it.”

    Have had migraines for years and just recently discovered using a vibrator that results in an orgasm, mind you, does help. But, just like otc drugs, it’s only temporary in some cases. It can be rather addicting, too, but hey, who cares! lol
