In case you’ve been living under a rock, clitoral vibrators are all the rave these days. Why? Well, aside from the fact that a clit stimulator toy can lead to some of the most powerful orgasms, they can also serve as a wonderful addition to intercourse with a partner.
However, there are some long-surviving myths about clitoral vibrators (and vibrating sex toys in general, really), which we thought we’d debunk once and for all in this article. Read on for the most common myths about clitoral vibrators, for your peace of mind!
- If you use a clitoral vibrator too often, it will desensitise your clitoris
First and foremost, fear not that your rigorous masturbation sessions are taking their toll on your genitals’ ability to feel the delightful sensations that come from stimulation. Your clitoris will continue to respond to stimulation regardless of whether it comes from vibrating toys, a penis, a finger, or something else altogether.
- Clitoral vibrators will take the fun and excitement out of other forms of sex
Having experienced the eyer-rolling sensations that a good clitoral vibrator can deliver, you’d be forgiven for thinking that “regular” sex won’t be as enjoyable for you in comparison now. And while this argument is up to opinion rather than a black-and-white verdict, the reality is that vibrators simply deliver a certain type of sexual gratification, whereas other types of sex will deliver on other fronts.
- Clitoral vibrators are just for external use
But, the clitoris is on the outside, you say? Well, yes… and no. Not everyone knows this, but your clitoris actually extends up into the body – stimulation of these different “zones” of the clitoris can be achieved by pressing down firmly on your labia, playing with the pubic mound, and giving some attention to the inside of your vagina as well.
- Larger (more visible) clits are more sensitive than smaller ones
Okay, so this final myth isn’t specifically about clitoral vibrators but it’s relevant nonetheless. If you’re the owner of a – shall we say, petit or hooded clitoris, this in no way means that you receive less stimulation during your sexual endeavours. In fact, your clitoris doesn’t even need to come into direct contact with anything for you to reach climax.
We could go into the science behind it (i.e. that sensitivity is influenced more by neurology, hormonal levels and your relationship with the sexual partner) but for now let’s just say that you can finally put to rest any preconceptions you held regarding the four common clitoral vibrator myths listed above.
Hopefully this helps put your mind at ease the next time to get into bed with a partner, or shop for your next clitoral vibrating toy online!
