We don't give up reading when our eyesight gets worse—we get a pair of reading glasses.
We can compensate by taking more time, energy, and attention to awaken or re-awaken our sensations. Using tools—personal or small vibrators for women, an intimate compact massager, or warming lubricants—is an excellent way to increase self-awareness and sensation. So take a deep breath and try some of the suggestions below.
Try these actions. We’ve started with the simplest first.
Use a Personal Vibrator
A personal vibrator—also known as a clitoris vibrator or intimate compact massager—can enhance vaginal comfort and awaken interest in sex. Whatever their shape, large or small, vibrators for women all have motors that make them vibrate to stimulate the clitoris. A vibrator helps increase genital sensation and can bring its user to orgasm.
Whether on our own or with a partner, self-stimulation is an important skill for any of us who wish to develop and maintain her ability to enjoy sex.
Use a Warming Lubricant
A “warming” lubricant or oil contains minty or peppery ingredients, which increase sensation and stimulate circulation in genitals before and during sex, with or without a personal vibrator.
