Can A Vibrator Ruin Your Sex Life?

If you are anything like me, you read that title and thought "oh man, I hope not." They can be wonderfully useful in those lonely moments. Wonderfully useful. But I'm sure most of us haven't stopped to think about what it could do to our social and romantic lives. Anyone who was/is a fan of Sex In The City will remember the hilarious episode where Charlotte gets a Rabbit vibrator and then proceeds to never leave her house. It ends in an intervention from her girlfriends. I'd like to say this is an incredibly far fetched idea but it isn't. I, like so many women who saw that episode, bought a Rabbit. It was spectacular. I would actually look forward to getting home from work everyday to hang out with my battery powered friend. I did wonder, more than once, if a human could ever be so effective. Up until that point, I had had a fairly lackluster sex life and was feeling less than convinced. And when I did give up the Rabbit, it wasn't by choice. One sad day, the motor died. I decided not to replace it. I had actually closed myself off to the idea of meeting someone simply because I had found an easier, less complicated and more efficient way of doing it myself. If you are someone who needs help figuring out what makes your body hum, vibrators may be of great assistance. But for me, it was getting in the way. I don't think it is ever a bad idea to own a vibrator but if it starts to become something that blocks your social interactions, you may want to consider dialing back your use. It is true that a human can never measure up to a vibrator. But the inverse is no less true. When was the last time your vibrator gave you a sultry kiss? The sensual elements of sex cannot be replicated with batteries. The heat, the scent, the passion. That's all human to human. Think about that the next time you are considering blowing off your date to stay home with Bob, your battery operated boyfriend. h/t: Marie Claire
