Even a decade ago, owning a pleasure device of any kind felt slightly shameful. It was as though it was a secret to be hidden away, in our most private drawer only to be seen on dark lonely nights or maybe this was just my experience. This feeling was in part due to how sex toys were manufactured to be blatantly realistic and obnoxiously large. Let's just say before the 90s, vibrators were not discrete—or cute, for that matter. As we continue to shift our cultural narratives surrounding sexuality, we are able to propel a ripple effect throughout the industries dedicated to catering to our sexual desires. There is an emphasis on innovative, anatomically driven designs and celebrating women designers who are modernizing the industry.

Our choices cost rather more than a bunch of flowers.

Recent studies have revealed that women who use vibrators are healthier -- and sexually happier -- than women who don't. Finally, the stigma of the sinful sex toy is fading and women can hold their Rabbits and Pocket Rockets proud. So if good vibrations are good and good for us sexually evolved women, are they good for our daughters too? This question came up recently on my website, truuconfessions -- when a mom shared the following:.
That's the message from one prominent blogger, who has said that girls should be taught about female pleasure at a young age. This will help them get to know their bodies before they start having sex with others, she believes. Nadia Bokody, a self-described sex-positive feminist, has said that parents must take it upon themselves to educate their daughters on pleasure, including by giving them sex toys. I don't like it either.
