What’s the Buzz? 4 Health Benefits of Vibrators

Written by: Dr. Joshua Gonzalez

Well, the Pennsylvania rodent saw its shadow which supposedly means an early spring. With Spring comes warm weather, flowers blooming, and bees buzzing. But if we want to maintain our physical, emotional, and sexual health well into the summer, and beyond, the bees aren’t the only ones that should be buzzing this spring! Make sure to have fresh batteries on hand because Popstar is back with all the tips on the health benefits of stimulating your erogenous zones. We have the buzz on vibrators!

4 Health Benefits of Vibrators:

#1 Stress Relief

Vibrators are right up there with Vinyasa yoga when it comes to stress relief. Stimulating your erogenous zones triggers the release of endorphins, naturally boosting your mood. Endorphins promote relaxation and alleviate feelings of anxiety, buzzing your way right into a state of pure bliss.

#2 Pelvic Floor Strength

Masturbation via vibrators can act as HIIT (high-intensity interval training) for your erogenous zones. Regular use of vibrators can aid in building pelvic floor strength and improving overall pelvic floor health. Strengthening your pelvic floor is crucial for bladder control and sexual function. For our readers with penises, pelvic floor strength is necessary for maintaining erections and enhancing sexual performance. A powerhouse pelvic floor combined with Popstar’s signature formula can help you go the distance and achieve peak performance.
You can also strengthen your pelvic floor through kegel exercises, which involve the contraction and release of the muscles used to stop your urine stream. To learn more about strengthening your pelvic floor and kegel exercises, check out our blog on that very topic here.

#3 Troubleshooting

Vibrators can be valuable for people experiencing sexual dysfunction or who have difficulty reaching orgasm. Solo sexual exploration with a vibrator allows people to discover what works and what doesn’t work, all without the added pressure of performing for a partner. Having a good understanding of what brings you pleasure can improve sexual confidence, enhancing sexual experiences and deepening intimacy with partners.

#4 Mental Health

The benefits of vibrators extend to mental health as well. Sexual pleasure, even when achieved alone, boosts self-esteem, overall mood, and can combat symptoms of depression. So if you need a mood booster, skip the brain teasers and reach for your favorite toy!

Boy Toy

Well, folks, it turns out vibrators aren’t just for one gender! As long as you have pleasure points, every goodie drawer should include a vibrator. We’ve talked about the male g-spot, or the p-spot, on this blog before. The p-spot refers to the prostate: a man’s pleasure center. To learn more about the prostate check out our blog post here.

Vibrators, or dildos with a vibrating feature, can be used anally to stimulate the prostate, leading to intense pleasure and shaking up your masturbation routine.

While vibrators are commonly associated with sexual pleasure, their benefits extend far beyond the bedroom. Vibrators aid with stress relief, pelvic floor strength, and overall physical, mental, and sexual health. So make sure those batteries are fully charged and ready to keep you buzzing all year long!
