Vibrators For Women Are Back In Fashion

Sex and the City

And The Exploding Popularity Of Vibrators

Brought to fame by a famous episode of Sex and The City, the use of vibrators among women has exploded in popularity in recent years, so much so, that they are currently in more demand than ever before.

Specialist female novelty stores like Females Pleasure are providing women with a selection of some of the best toys available, just take a look at some of the amazing femalespleasure.com.au/vibrators on offer at their online store.

These toys are even starting to make their way into almost every major retailer, and companies like Trojan are literally taking the message to the streets with creative marketing campaigns portraying vibrators as fun and accepted by society more than ever.

In fact they gave away 10,000 free vibrators in the streets in order to get the product out there in consumers hands, can you believe that!? You can read about it below.

Just take a look at this video and see for yourself:

Talk about clever marketing!

But how is it that we’ve come so far from the first vibrator that was invented in 1883 for treating female hysteria, to one of today’s most popular selling retail products?

Well, there has been a long history of vibrators and other sexual toys used for similar purposes, but they have always remained quite taboo and not openly talked about.

These days however, an estimated one in three women currently owns and uses one, which suggests that all the taboos that were once associated with sex toys are slowly vanishing.

Why are vibrators so suddenly so popular?

Well, for starters women are less willing to settle for unsatisfying sex, and less willing to be left high and dry. So instead, they are turning to beautifully designed “pleasure toys” to get the job done well.

Women have much higher sexual expectations nowadays, and the introduction of vibrators into a sexual relationship is now much more widespread and accepted.

If a male partner is unable to fully satisfy his female companion, he can now use a vibrator on her to help her achieve orgasm.

Where 75% of men report having had an orgasm during their last sexual experience, it is a much smaller 25% of women that say they have achieved orgasms.

Why are women accepting vibrators?

Part of the reason why they have become so popular is because they have been marketed in a more fun and feminine way.

And online adult toy stores are committed to making the buying experience comfortable for women for the first time in history.

Stores are making it their mission to separate the old sexual taboo and seediness of shopping for these products at dimly lit, back ally type sex shops, and introducing a safer and more acceptable way of shopping.

The trend towards the acceptance and encouragement of female sexuality has been a long time coming.

No pun intended ;-)

  1. It’s definitely the way forward and it’s about time that society has taken a more accepted view of sex toys. Only in recent times has the whole idea of owning a vibrator become a popular thing! I think the clincher here was when these large toy makers like Lelo and Jimmyjane put a significant amount of money into their marketing campaigns, and in turn, what was once a taboo topic not to be discussed has suddenly turned into something mainstream and commonly accepted. If you take a look at some of lelo’s marketing video’s you almost can’t help but feel compelled to buy some of their toys. It’s a great thing to see and let’s hope it stays that way.

  2. Hi thanks for sharing this! I’ve always been a little apprehensive about buying vibrators at stores, because most are so seedy and full of gross perverts! Even some of the online sex toy stores that you see online are pretty gross as well. Are there any stores that you can recommend that are just for women, preferably run by women? Thanks heaps. Janice

    • Hi Janice, actually being a woman myself I know exactly where you are coming from. Personally, I’ve never ventured into those same stores that you’ve described, and luckily for us women, there is a large selection of friendly and discrete online sex toy stores that you can find locally here in Australia – there’s even some that sell specifically for women. In my opinion, when you are shopping you probably want to go with online store that provides reviews on their products, as this way you know they have been tested and you can read up about the features of the products. Just jump onto Google and do a search for “vibrator reviews” and you’ll find some really good stores in the first few positions. Good luck!

  3. Hi my name’s Kristen, I stumbled upon your your site when I was looking for a new vibrator. I feel really nervous about shopping for one online, because I don’t want anyone to know what I’m buying. I was wondering if there’s a way I can buy one still and keep all of my details private. Have you got anything that you can suggest? Thanks a lot.

    • Hi Kristen – thanks for posting your comment. I can completely understand how you are feeling. For many women the idea of shopping for a new (or their first) vibrator can be a daunting one, and filled with lots of mixed emotions about whether or not its normal to do that. The truth is, that while not many women openly talk about it, something like 55% of the female population own a vibrator. Theses figures come from large samples of women. So, going by the statistics, it’s nothing to be worried about at all!

      In terms of a discrete shopping experience, there are many online stores here in Australia that cater specifically to women. I know of some very good online stores, and I’ll be happy to send you their details. Just shoot my a message via the contact form I’ll reply to you.

      Thanks for stopping by! Manuela

  4. I definitely see this trend as getting more popular. Women are coming out of their shells, it’s a new type of sexual revolution. With brands like Lelo making such gorgeous products that work so well, how are we meant to resist ;-)
