Every woman should own a Vibrator

For the longest time, there were misconceptions about women using sex toys and vibrators. Women were shy to reveal they owned a vibrator.

Nearly half of adult women currently use sex toys or have tried them in the past as masturbation is frequent in women. Also, women in relationships are even more likely to use them, according to research.

According to statistics, the sale of sex toys boomed globally in 2020 with Nigeria experiencing an over 50 percent increase in sales during the pandemic.

A vibrator is a sex toy that is used on the body to produce pleasurable sexual stimulation and they come in different shapes and sizes, depending on what purpose you want it to serve.

Vibrators have numerous health benefits according to relationship experts and if you have not joined the list of those who own one, here are 7 reasons why you should.

1. Leads to multiple orgasms

Having multiple orgasms is a feat that not too many women accomplish on a regular basis. However, that can change by using a vibrator.

Since the vibrations cause your body to be more sensitive and reactive, it’s more likely you’ll be able to experience those multiple orgasms you’ve always desired.

A lot of women who have never had an orgasm before will often orgasm the first or second time they use a vibrator.

2. Relieves stress

If you’re feeling pretty stressed out after a hard day, are unable to relax, or have trouble sleeping, try having an orgasm.

Having an orgasm releases oxytocin and serotonin, which heightens feelings of calmness and contentment. These hormones are known as the ‘feel-good’ hormones because they are linked to happiness. Regular production of these hormones through orgasms with a vibrator can contribute towards feeling less stressed and more positive.

3. Spices up your sex life

If you don’t communicate with your partner during sex, you will fail to know what to do and it can become a daunting affair. Still, it is crucial to experiment with vibrators so that you discover your partner’s likes and dislikes.

As a result, you'll feel increased intimacy with your partner, leading to increased sexual desire for your partner and increased satisfaction with the relationship overall.

4. Keeps your vagina healthy

When you orgasm, your vaginal walls are lubricated, and this moisture boosts their elasticity, which breaks down as you age. It also opens your cervix so fluids can be flushed out, which will prevent those tricky (and painful) UTIs.

5. Helps relieve pain

Research has shown that orgasms have been effective in getting rid of period pain and cramps. Also, vibrators can also help if you have other health conditions like headaches.

This is because the area of the brain involved in pain reduction is highly activated during arousal and endorphins are released, which can soothe nerve impulses that cause migraines or joint pain.

6. Helps you learn about your body

Using a vibrator helps you find out where your truly sensitive areas are. You will also become way more confident sexually, and you’ll be able to bring some of your newfound sexual knowledge into the bedroom. When you start having regular, great orgasms you’ll likely begin to become more confident in your body and the way you carry yourself. And often treating your body better will follow.

7. Helps you sleep better

If you have trouble sleeping, an orgasm will improve the quality of your sleep thanks to the fact that when you climax you produce the sleep-inducing hormone, prolactin. So, theoretically, you should enjoy better and more restful sleep after an orgasm.
