According to an article in the New York Times, fifty-three percent of women admit to having used a vibrator. Almost half of all men polled also admit to have used a vibrator, as well.
While the facts and figures are not surprising news, as most people I know aren’t as prude as what society pegs them to be, what is surprising is that individuals are so apt to openly admit something that was once (and not so long ago) considered to be a topic of taboo… ness.
The same study shows that the majority of vibrator use is not during masturbation; to the contrary. The primary function of vibrator-use seems to be dominant in two-person sexual encounters.
One of the most interesting facets of this long-winded study, which you can read here, was the simple fact that, despite current economic conditions, the sex-toy industry has not yielded to the Crumbling Of The Empires. As a matter of fact, according to Jim Daniels, VP of Marketing for Trojan, sales are up almost twenty percent in comparison to last year.
It seems no matter what the current economic climate, certain things (obviously, like vibrators and anal beads or something) don’t go out of style. Some items are just must-have, even if you have to scrape the couch for change to cover the shipping and handling on your very own Black and Decker Pecker… imitation.
On a more personal note, vibrators don’t do it for me during two-party sex; toys and what not are pretty fun, but the whole buzzing machinery thing kind of kills the moment for me. Don’t get me wrong; I’ve been no stranger to experimentation in the bedroom, but I guess I’m not a part of the whole “vibrator craze” that’s currently gripping the world.
At any rate, good for you, ladies and gentlemen of the world who want to keep the fire in the bedroom alive and aren’t being shy about it!
