We’re not really sure why all of a sudden our friends over at Good Vibrations emailed us to tell us sales are going crazy for the vibrators on our site.

But we could guess why people are investing in their personal joy, their partners, investing in feeling better, investing in pleasure…

The truth is the world is a frightening place right now, and what we can control at home, in the privacy of our own relationships and bodies is ever more important as the news is crazy disturbing.

Here’s 7 reasons why we think vibrator sales are going through the roof.

  1. Stress relief from listening to politics.
  2. We can’t find relief from talking about what is happening in the world, so we’re looking for a little distraction.
  3. We are getting older and spending more time on our couches binge-watching and just hanging out. Date night on the couch can be more than a good TV show.
  4. Could it be that our long term marriages need a little spice?   Vibrators are fun!
  5. Maybe we are becoming more open and less uptight.
  6. Grace and Frankie have opened up the dialogue on their TV show (Fonda and Tomlin.) Vibrator talk is no longer taboo.
  7. A vibrator may just be an antidote for vaginal atrophy! That’s not your sex therapist telling you what to do, it’s becoming the mantra of more and more doctors.
    “Vibrators, which can help to fight against “vaginal dryness and atrophy,” as the vaginal muscle is more likely to deteriorate in middle age (which is what makes sex uncomfortable). Buying yourself a toy is a fix that many doctors are recommending — so long as patients keep their toys clean and use them as recommended.”

    Whatever the reason, vibrator sales are having a major uptick… and it may be time to give one a try.

    Here’s what our friends over at Good Vibrations recommend as the top 3 vibrators for women over 50:

    The Ina Wave, by Lelo:  “Are you ready to experience pleasure in ways that you never knew imaginable? With their new revolutionary vibrator technology, LELO is ready to unveil their latest “game changing” design. Inspired by the highly talked about “come-hither” motion, the INA WAVE simulates the curved fingers of your lover’s intuitive embrace. Curved inward, the “in and out” motion of the INA WAVE’S motor will have you riding waves of ecstasy! With two new and improved dual synchronized motors, the 100% silicone INA Wave will sensually stimulate your clitoris while passionately pumping your G-spot…”

    The Womanizer:  “This revolutionary rechargeable sex toy features a focused clitoral suction tip combined with a light, yet incredibly effective, vibration effect, which they call Pleasure Air Technology. Completely innovative in the way it stimulates the clitoris, Womanizer is ergonomically designed to offer the right amount of body contact while delivering powerful and surprisingly strong orgasms. Its ABS plastic body is topped with a cone shape covered with a removable silicone sleeve; place it over the clitoris for a new kind of erotic ride. The new Pro version offers two exchangeable heads that differ in size and shape; the larger of the two offers wider area coverage, better accommodating people with larger clitorises. The silicone head even has a light effect so you can see where to place it in the dark! This toy really does all the work for you, so it’s a good choice for people with arthritis or wrist issues.”

    The Bullet Vibrator by Crave:  “How do you make a better bullet? Turn it over to our innovative friends at Crave! This petite and elegant toy looks like a mini high-end lipstick tube, but it goes all the places you want to take your favorite vibe: It fits into many dildos and harnesses, plus it’s rechargeable, fully waterproof, and designed to be the same size as disposable bullets, but with a longer lifespan and high-quality materials. This beautiful metal toy comes with a silicone sleeve, too, giving you the option of covering half the bullet–vary the sensation, or enjoy the way it quickly warms to skin temperature. Charge it up via any USB port and save the further expense of buying batteries. …
