The first time I saw a woman casually declare her love for sex toys and self-pleasure, was Samantha in Sex and the City. Despite such a free-spirited character being on a show that’s helped define a generation of women, not much has changed. Female masturbation is still a taboo and a hush-hush subject. With this month being National Masturbation Month (yes, that’s a thing), now is the perfect opportunity to talk – without shame.
Modern shows like Girls and Broad City have pushed boundaries and moved the conversation on female masturbation forward, but it still doesn’t feel normal to say – I use sex toys and I’m a woman. That needs to change however. If not for anything, the numerous amount of health benefits. inews.co.uk mentions amongst its list, “increased resistance to infection” and “decreased anxiety levels”.
Is female masturbation the ultimate female empowerment?
Amid acknowledging pay gap issues and sexual assault, can we also speak up about this? It’s not a masculine thing – being proud of your body and wanting to freely enjoy. Femininity is seen as dainty and sweet, but women need to break from believing that pleasing themselves is somehow unconventional and unladylike.
Satisfyer Pro G-Spot Rabbit
With all that said, I took the plunge a few months back to finally see what I was missing. The Satisfyer Pro G-Spot Rabbit is the perfect choice to discover self-satisfaction.
Made of sleek, white silicone, with rose-gold accents, this toy is waterproof, hypoallergenic, and comes with a rechargeable battery and magnetic charging cable. After I realised how to turn off (queue chaotic panic at realising people were coming round and I had a moving vibrator ringing) it didn’t take long to become a fan.
It’s the kind of toy an adult couldn’t get bored of playing with. There’s 3 vibration intensities and 7 rhythms – within the first week I had my favourites chosen. Not to mention that the design is sleek, glides in easy and stimulates as though the sex you’ve pictured having with your partner, is actually happening.
The design speaks for itself after winning the Design Awards 2018. While the vibration can sound a little noisy, the rhythms are fairly quiet, meaning you and the rabbit can keep the secret between you. What makes the Pro G-Spot rabbit stand out – ‘it expands the unique feeling of clitoral pressure wave stimulation to include an additional G-spot massage’. If struggling to orgasm is an issue, take my advice and give this a try. The opposite issue will happen – if that could ever be an issue!
Satisfyer claim that their rabbit will give a user a lovely and healthy glow, along with noting all the advantages of an orgasm – stress relief, improved immunity and a natural mood-booster. I’m not sure if my skin is glowing, though I can certainly testify that the rest is true.
It’s £62.95 and comes packaged discreet. Click here to find out more.
