A Guide to Vibrators for Women Over 50
Knowing what kind of touch or sensation feels good is vital information to becoming more attuned to one’s pleasure centers
We all know sex toys are about giving us pleasure. Vibrators also fall into the category of sexual health tools. Whether you’re having difficulties or not, sex toys can be an important teaching tool for women who want to learn about their bodies, enhance pleasure and become more orgasmic.
But what happens when you want a vibrator and have no clue as to what to buy or how to use it? I’ve heard from several women in their late 50s and early 60s with questions about vibrators. Questions like, “My doctor suggested it, but I’m not sure what she wants me to do,” to “I’ve never had an orgasm, would a vibrator help me?”
The reason we use vibrators is to give ourselves pleasure. Fingers, tongues and penises are wonderful, but sometimes, using a vibrator on your own body can be instructive - and delightfully pleasurable. By using the toy as a learning device, the user can begin to understand where they feel the most pleasure. And knowing what kind of touch or sensation feels good is vital information to becoming more attuned to one’s pleasure centers.

Benefits of Using a Vibrator
Let’s look at some of the benefits of using vibrators:
Pleasure Without Penetration
A vibrator allows you to feel and give pleasure without vaginal penetration - a plus for women who have issues with dryness or pain during intercourse. It’s also a useful tool for couples if erectile issues are present. That's right - men can use vibrators too!
Making Pain-Free Penetration Possible
When penetrative sex with a partner is desired but there is concern about discomfort or pain, a slender vibrator can be used, slowly and carefully, with you in control. Some doctors prescribe vaginal dilators for vaginal atrophy, but in a mild case, or just for fun, a slender vibrator can be used both internally and externally. With the extra pleasure vibration provides, experimenting with a vibrator can help get you comfortable with this type of play again.
More Orgasmic Intercourse
A vibrator can be used during intercourse to provide the extra stimulation necessary for orgasm.
