Vibrator Use Common and Linked to Sexual Health

A recent nationwide sampling of women conducted by Indiana University revealed that 53% of women have used vibrators during sex. Despite longstanding assumptions, this was the first large survey on such matters. It affirms what many therapists and doctors have known for years.

The study was conducted on over 2,000 women between the ages of 18-60 years. There were some other interesting findings with the study:

52.5% of women have used a vibrator, with about 25% having used it in the past month.

Vibrator use was more likely if the woman had a gynecological exam within the past year, or had done a genital self-exam within the last month, reflecting an awareness and interest in maintaining sexual health.

71.5% reported have no side effects from the vibrator. Most side effects reported were rare and short in duration.
