The Vibrator and the Vaginismus Patient

Vibrators come in many shapes and sizes

Vibrators for women come in many shapes and sizes. Many of our vaginismus patients have never seen or touched a vibrator, as it is very common for them to feel anxiety when thinking about using a vibrator for the first time. Most vibrators for women are designed to be simple to operate and control and are battery operated or plug-in. Vibrators for women with vaginismus can be a useful aid as it can be used to relax and to explore one’s body and erogenous zones. Vibrators can help women with low libido get “in the mood”.

When using a vibrator in combination with dilation or transitioning to intercourse, it is important to set aside enough time for so that you have the necessary privacy – remember, being comfortable and feeling safe will help relieve any anxiety you may be feeling. It can be helpful to dim the lights, turn on soft music or whatever else you might need to feel sexy or “in the mood”. Give this topic some thought ahead of time and be creative and the rewards will be plentiful.

Become familiar with your body and learn what feels good

Begin with touching your erogenous zones with your hands before using the vibrator. This is a good way to get familiar with your body and to learn what will feel good when using the vibrator. Next, test the vibrator using the different speeds on different parts of your body before using the vibrator on your genitals.

As you begin to relax, explore all parts of your body, including the sensitive parts, starting with the vibrator on the lowest speed. Experiment with the different speeds and modes to find what works for you – everyone is different and experimentation can be a lot of fun. Once you are comfortable, you can then begin working towards a clitoral orgasm – again, start out on a gentle speed and pressure while moving the vibrator. It is so important to relax and to enjoy yourself.
