The Government Supports Vibrators –

Doctors Prescribe Vibrators --

So Why Is the Subject Taboo?

 




Doctors Invent the Vibrator to Induce Orgasm

Despite the negative way that people view vibrators, these tools were first invented for strictly medicinal purposes. Doctors around the world manually stimulated women’s genitals as a standard part of their practice as that was believed to stop hysteria. Doctors induced a vibrator orgasm as the standard treatment for hysteria which used to be considered a chronic and common ailment, considered to be a consistent female sexual problem.

 

As technology evolved, vibrators replaced doctors’ hands and continued to improve women’s physical, emotional well-being and sexual health. Now we are at the peak of our technological knowledge. So the question is how can we expand technology faster than we can expand our own minds?


Anorgasmia: A 37% Issue

Today vibrators are no longer prescribed by doctors to treat hysteria, but they are now used as treatment for anorgasmia, an even more complex medical condition. Over one fourth of the female populations, 24% - 37% are affected by anorgasmia, the female orgasm disorder, this ailment which prevents women from achieving orgasm. Anorgasmia is a real medical condition that is classified in the DSM-IV (code 302.7), The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual published by the American Psychiatric Association.


The medical community fully understands the problem of this condition, as does the government. That is why the National Institute of Health (NIH) specifically devotes time and money to treat anorgasmia which is now a widespread problem that can essentially jeopardize many women’s sexual health.

Fun Facts

In the Durex Global Survey 45% of Americans think it is acceptable for products aimed at improving sex lives to be sold in mainstream stores.



Did you know?

According to the Durex Global Survey more than a third of Americans (34%) use vibrators and more than half (54%) use lubricants as part of their sex lives - That's far higher than the global figures of 21% and 34% respectively.

According to the NIH, there are four types of anorgasmia. The first is known as primary anorgasmia, which means that a woman has never experienced an orgasm. The second is called secondary anorgasmia, meaning that a woman has experienced an orgasm in the past but she can not do so in the present. The third type of anorgasmia is known as absolute, which means that a woman cannot achieve an orgasm under any situation. The final type of this ailment is situational, meaning that there are only certain situations under which a woman cannot reach an orgasm.


Though the severity of each type of anorgasmia varies, this ailment can severely affect women’s sexual health and their sexual partners. Women who suffer from anorgasmia cannot understand why they cannot achieve orgasm. Men who are with women who have this disorder frequently feel inadequate. These mental insecurities can put tremendous strain on individuals and on relationships.

"When orgasmic dysfunction persists, sexual desire usually declines, sexual frequency wanes, and this may create resentment and conflicts in the relationship." from nih.gov

National Institute of Health Suggests Vibrator as Treatment for Anorgasmia

That is why the NIH has program that is meant to treat anorgasmia of any degree.

The NIH’s recommended these steps towards treating anorgasmia including:

  • Self exploration
  • Sensate focus
  • Masturbation
  • Use of vibrators
  • Exercises to heighten sexual arousal

As you can see, women with anorgasmia must overcome many hurdles before they can achieve orgasm with their partners. Ironically, one of the most helpful steps in this treatment plan is the use of vibrators for an orgasm – and purchasing a vibrator in a society where these devices are frowned upon is perhaps as scary as letting go enough to reach an orgasm.


Since anorgasmia largely stems from a woman’s fear to let down her guard and let her sexuality overtake her, it seems quite wrong for society to contribute to that fear.



The Vibrator, Orgasm & Anorgasmia

The medical community supports vibrators as does the government. Yet many of the women who use vibrators are absolutely terrified with the idea of what other people might think. Thus sexuality becomes even more cloaked and more women are too scared to let themselves reach an orgasm. This contributes to a vicious circle that makes anorgasmia a growing sexual problem for women around the world.


That is why I urge you to put your political differences aside and take the government’s lead on this one.


If vibrators are government recommended and approved, If vibrators are medically prescribed and approved, who are we to say otherwise?
