Cool New Research on Vibrator Use

June 16th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I’m sure that “people use vibrators!” isn’t news to you, but here are some honest-to-goodness statistics with which to wow your skeptical friends and to help a shy partner open their hearts to toys.

New Research on Vibrator Use.

…researchers Michael Reece and Debra Herbenick along with colleagues from Indiana University (and one self-interested researcher from Trojan) recently published two studies on vibrator use in the Journal of Sexual Medicine and they represent a quantum leap in research quality and methodology. The studies involved just over 2,000 women and 1,000 men, all U.S. adults, and were conducted online, using a nationally representative sample from the company Knowledge Networks.

The most surprising and significant finding in my mind is the number of people who use vibrators. 52% of women and 45% of men report having ever used a vibrator.

Cory quotes several of the results, such as that the majority of women report no negative side effects, that the majority of males used vibrators with a partner, and that vibrator use corresponds with higher levels of sexual confidence and health.
