Susan and her husband of 30 years used to have a pretty good sex life, but ever since he developed prostate problems, they only use their bed for sleeping. “I love Jason dearly, but often miss this part of our relationship. It used to make me feel so good.”
“Having a sex life is important, whether you’re married or not,” says Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus, director of the Medical Center for Female Sexuality in Purchase, NY. “It’s important for your sense of self, whether you’re having sex with someone else or with yourself.”
While sex is an important release for pleasure, it’s also important for your health. “Your genitals, your vulva, your clitoris, your vagina, those are parts of your body that also need to be exercised,” Dr. Marcus explains. “You need blood coming into the area. You need the muscles to be stretched.”
Just because you’re single doesn’t mean your sexual health needs to suffer. Dr. Marcus recommends that a woman masturbate at least once a week if she doesn’t have a partner or doesn’t have regular sex with her partner. “Finding one or a few vibrators that you enjoy and work well for you is pretty important. They can make sex easier and more fun for many, many women, both with their partners and by themselves.”
A vibrator love note from FOFounder, Geri Brin
I tried my first vibrator over 12 years ago, but I’ve never stuck with one long-term. So when
the folks at Revel Body asked if I’d try their new SOL Sonic Vibrator, I was game.
Hands down (another of those crazy little puns!), this is the best vibrator I’ve ever used.
The cute little round device has a magnetically centered moving part, powered up by quick, alternating magnetic pulses. Unlike traditional battery-powered vibrators, with limited speeds, this unit sits on a stand, which charges the lithium-powered battery, and delivers a wide range of adjustable vibration “never before seen in sexual wellness products,” according to the company.
Made of high-quality, body-safe materials, the Revel Body SOL is waterproof, rechargeable, and is pretty enough to leave on your nightstand. Vibrators that are shaped like penises generally don’t perform like the real goods and you can’t wait to stash them away.
Another great feature of the Revel Body SOL is that it generates underwater vibration and suction when the concave side is used underwater and held again the body. It is a sensation unlike any other.
ONE MORE THING
The $139 investment is nothing, considering the return. I’d pay twice as much for this, even if I had to give up drinking cappuccino for a couple of weeks. Those can be stimulating, too, but they don’t come close to this.
