For over a century, it has been shown that vibrators enhance sexual pleasure. In the US, Betty Dodson (b. 1929) has been a masturbation advocate for decades. Recognizing early on the need for more attention to women's genitalia and masturbation, she hosted regular masturbation workshops for New York women in the seventies and eighties.
In her work, Dodson encourages women to firstly familiarize themselves with their genitals using a mirror; and then to explore various stimulation, including with a vibrator, in particular for clitoral stimulation, which, as research shows, most women need to orgasm.
The New York Times and Salon recently featured reports on the growing mainstreaming and popularity of vibrators among women and couples. "Once seen as a threat to masculinity, straight men are finding that sex toys give them some sexual swagger," reports Salon; even becoming "an accepted symbol of a man's sexual prowess." – "As more women have been speaking up about using vibrators, it has normalized it for their male partners," comments adult sex educator Dr. Charlie Glickman.
The condom company Trojan recently released its line of vibrators, after a study the company conducted in 2008 in partnership with the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University revealed that over half of American women had used vibrators–and of that group, nearly 80 percent had shared them with their partners. Speaking with The New York Times, Jeremy, 31, a content strategist in the entertainment business who lives in New York, said, “From my perspective, a woman who has thoroughly explored her own body, both alone and with or without whichever toys she finds interesting, makes for a significantly better lover.”
The Passion Flower Mini Vibrator is a discreet micro bullet vibrator that provides clitoral stimulation. You can even wear it in your panties, or use it during naked self-love sessions. I also recommend it as a supplement during partner sex. Regardless if you enjoy a vibrator on your own or with your partner, I advocate it first and foremost for your own pleasure.
