Now there's a title to get your attention.
The reason I'm writing about vibrators is that the New York Times did almost a half-page story on them Sunday. If you want to read the whole story, go to nytimes.com and type in vibrators. Anyway, they say they're as "common an appliance in American households as the coffee maker or toaster over.''
For those of you who don't want to read the whole story, here's some stats:
Of Boomer women 45 to 60, 46.3 per cent reported using a vibrator as some point in their lives. Of the 23 to 44 crowd, it's 59.5, and just 32.7 for the 18 to 22 year old types. Maybe these women aren't as liberated as us old dudes think they are.
For men, it's 45.2 percent ages 45-60, 51.5 percent for 23-44 and 15.5 for 18 to 22.
And even in bad economic times, vibrator sales were up 20 per cent last year. Well, if you have more free time...hey, you get the drift.
There's also something called Pure Romance, which sells sex toys to women in their living rooms to women aged 18 to 75.
Hey, they finally mentioned the over 60 crowd. As a member in good standing of that demographic, I don't want to be ignored.
Also, the Journal of Sexual Medicine reports that 39 per cent of middle aged women used a vibrator for masturbation (they didn't mention what other uses might be), compared to 53 per cent for the 23 to 44 group and 30 for the 18 to 22 age group. And the more educated you are, the more likely you are to use one. I must have missed that class! LOL.
Being vulnerable... he's here!
