Vibrators: Healthy & Fun
Vibrators for women are more socially acceptable these days.

You no longer have to order a "personal massager" from a kitschy mail order catalog to save the purchasing embarrassment. In fact, vibrators can provide health benefits.

Here's what a vibrator can do for your health:

  • Serve as a marital aid. Use of a vibrator in the bedroom can spice up your sex life. It also removes issues of orgasmic timing between partners. Decreased effort and cramping from duration and position are also helpful.
  • Provide orgasm when alone. There is no partner required for vibrator use, which is handy when one is single or in a long-distance relationship.
  • Relieve tension and stress. An orgasm can help you sleep better at night.
  • Treat vaginal dryness in menopause. A vibrator stimulates blood flow, which increases moisture and sexual response.
  • Help with muscle tone. A vibrator stimulates the vaginal muscles, improving muscle tone. This is a great way to improve sexual function and prevent incontinence.
Listen in as Dr. Barb Depree joins Dr. Pam and Michelle to share the health benefits of vibrators.
