So I stumbled upon this post on thought catalog titled 20 little-known facts about vibrators, I'll share a few with you.
Research has shown that women who use vibrators are more likely to visit the gynecologist for checkups, to achieve orgasm with or without a vibrator, and to have lower stress levels and fewer headaches than women who don’t use them. What’s not to like?
One billion dollars’ worth of vibrators are sold every year, accounting for a bigger market even than condoms.
As legend has it, Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt whose seductive powers culminated in the Roman Civil War, invented the hand-held vibrator by filling a hollowed gourd with angry bees and then pressing it against her nether regions. Hail to the Queen Bee! (Nawa for Cleopatra o!)
Contrary to stereotypes that women use vibrators because they can’t snag a living penis, one study showed that four out of every five female vibrator users was in a relationship
Despite the popular notion that men experience severe castration anxiety and fear of mechanical cuckoldry whenever they see a vibrator, one study showed that seven out of ten men were absolutely A-OK with their lady friends using vibrators.
B.O.B That’s an acronym for “Battery-Operated Boyfriend.” If you can come up with a cuter name for your vibrator, go for it!
The article took my mind back to a post I read on Bella Naija discussing masturbation and whether it's sin or not. As expected the post received a lot of reaction and the comment section was a fiasco. The writer expressed that she fails to see how masturbation is a sin and referenced the bible portion "Christians" use as their case in point. The story of the man that God struck dead for spewing his seed on the ground. I've heard pastor's say this; that's how much God detests masturbation, he even struck a man dead for pouring his semen on the ground, wasting it. Which is what happens when a man masturbates.
LOLzzz. It's also the same thing that happens when you ejaculate into a condom or "pull out"...
So yeah, we've established that that's not why he was struck down. He was, for flaunting the orders to continue the lineage by impregnating his late brother's wife...
So that's that.
Still, having the lustful thoughts that often lead to and of course occur during the act, is sinful. Yes? No?
I've heard women write, moan, cry about their men masturbating. But is there really anything wrong with the act itself? Ladies, do you own a B.O.B? Men, do you feel threatened by your girl's sex toys? ...And what do you say about the lady whose pastor encouraged to masturbate, in order to keep herself for marriage, and later on, help stay faithful to hubby?
