weeks, months, hell you’ve lost track of time since the last time you had sex. I don’t mean just any old kind of sex: I mean the kind of sex that makes you want to call into work sick. Maybe you are in between boyfriends or your honey is away on a long trip. So you start working out, staying later at the office, hanging out with your family, everything that’s anything to avoid thinking about all the sex you’re not having. I have a solution for your problem: the solution is YOU.
Hear me out: It’s 2012 and yet we are STILL afraid to talk about pleasuring ourselves. Listen up Made Woman: Knowing your body by pleasuring yourself will actually help you have BETTER sex. So, dare I say it: It’s time for you to buy yourself a vibrator. I know what you’re thinking, “So what, I am just supposed to do, sit in my room alone and rub something…..down there?” Well… yes (although location is up to you though, girl). Truly, there are so many different vibrators for you to choose from that if you choose the right one you won’t have to do any rubbing at all. (As a tip, when you are shopping for one, test them on the tip of your nose, which is the closest you’ll get to what it’ll feel like…down there.) Now, get your mind out of the gutter. Literally. It’s not a demoralizing experience to get to know yourself in a sexual way. You don’t have to write a Facebook post or Tweet about it for God’s sake. You’ll learn exactly what works for you and what doesn’t, and you won’t need a man to show you. (I know you think you know everything about your goodies, but trust me, there’s always more to learn). Not to oversimplify, but you get to have a great orgasm and release all that “I don’t need a man to keep me happy/Work is kickin’ my ass/I’ve gained ten pounds” energy. Relax, girl, and let it all go. Take a trip to the Pleasure Chest Sex Shop or another local shop in your area and browse. If you are a little gun shy, here are some suggestions for you:
- Bullet: This is the beginner’s favorite vibrator because it is primarily for clitoral stimulation. It is simple to use and most bullets have a maximum of two speeds and two settings.
- Rabbit: This vibrator is for when you are ready to graduate from your bullet. There are so many different kinds of rabbits with multiple speeds and settings.
- Form B: This vibrator is available on JimmyJane.com. Jimmy Jane is the motherland of sex toys and vibrators. (There motto is, “Pleasure to the People”. It doesn’t get much better than that). Form B charges on a stand, has four different speeds and settings, is nice and soft AND is waterproof. It’s a little pricey, but hey, it’s an investment.
Step outside your comfort zone for once. You’re a Made Woman, and you deserve it.
