Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: If I use a vibrator all the time, will it make sex less enjoyable for me?

Answer from Dr. Locker

Yes and no. If a woman relies on a vibrator in order to orgasm every time, then she may not be able to orgasm any other way… because her body gets so used to the electric stimulation. Will this make sex less enjoyable for you? Well, no, if you and your partner don’t mind that you’ll have to use the vibrator every time you want to orgasm when you are intimate. But if you want to be able to orgasm while you with your partner, without having to use a vibrator, then you would most likely need to entirely stop using the vibrator in order to get over it, and re-sensitive your body to your hand (or his hand, or rubbing on his body, or oral sex) in order to orgasm. By the way: There are some toys that the man can wear (like a “vibrating ring”) and that also provide stimulation for the woman, so you can use a vibrator with your partner in a more discreet way.
