Can a Vibrator Desensitize my Clitoris?

By Emma Hewitt 5 months ago. Posted in Sexual Health
Can a Vibrator Desensitize my Clitoris?

Can a vibrator desensitize my clitoris?

This kind of conversation has been doing the rounds for a while now. As toys get better and stronger, there seems to be a growing concern that “over-stimulation” from a vibrator may cause a loss of sensitivity or numbness of the clitoris. This may then mean that reaching orgasm with a less intense toy, with your fingers or with a partner may become more difficult or even impossible. 

But, is this true? Are our vibrators ruining our ability to orgasm without one?  

Will using a vibrator numb your clitoris?

The clit is the epicenter of pleasure for a lot of us so I understand where the fear may lie. But, this one is a myth. Using a vibrator is not going to desensitize your vagina, your clitoris or any other part of your vulva. Not permanently anyway. 

Vibrators are designed to stimulate your nerve endings and feel damn good. They offer stimulation that feels unlike anything a human body can give you and are specifically designed to make you orgasm. And a lot of the time, a vibrator can get you there a lot faster than a human can.

Vibrators help to get you there faster

When you use a strong vibrator, you might find that your body skips much of the arousal stage of the sexual response cycle. This is because vibration helps blood flow into the clitoris which increases the surface area. Increased surface area exposes more nerve endings which are what gives you that pleasurable feeling. For some of us, this can result in getting adequately aroused and reaching orgasm very quickly. Much faster than we might if using only our hands or while playing with a partner. 

They don’t alter your nerve function

Even though they provide so much stimulation to your nerve endings, there is no proof to suggest that strong vibrators alter your nerve functions or desensitize the clitoris in any way. Yes, directly after you reach an orgasm from a super strong toy, you might feel a little numbness on the surface of your body. But this is temporary and in almost all cases your body will go completely back to normal within an hour. Even the most powerful toys on the market are unlikely to cause any sort of nerve damage. Think of it this way. If you sit on your hand, it becomes numb due to the pressure. And, the same goes with your clitoris if you overwhelm it with super-strong vibrations. 

What a strong vibrator might do, is to make you become more dependent on fast, effective stimulation that guarantees you an orgasm.

The thing is, vibrators are efficient

When you know that a vibrator can get you there in a few minutes but your hand or a partner might take 20… it can feel pretty frustrating. And that’s when your brain takes over and starts stressing about being able to orgasm. Do you know what can make you feel less sensation and prevent you from reaching orgasm though? Worrying about it. 

Yup, stress and worry are serious mood and orgasm killers when it comes to pleasure. Feeling stressed out about reaching orgasm can prevent you from fully experiencing pleasure making getting there without your vibrator almost impossible for some of us. Don’t forget how powerful the placebo effect can be. If you think that you can’t have an orgasm without a vibrator, you may be making it harder for yourself. 

If you want to do something about it, you can take a break from your vibrator

If you think that your vibrator is playing too big a role in your life, then you can take a break and reset those neural pathways. But make sure you make this choice and it’s something that you actually want to do. Don’t do it because someone is telling you that you should or you feel like there is pressure to do so. 

The easiest way to retrain your body is to take things easy and give your toy a rest for a while. Only use a toy now and then use your fingers sometimes too. That way you can ensure that your body is capable of responding to all sorts of stimulus, not just vibration. 

But, honestly, the best advice is to stop worrying about it

Because vibrators are good for you! Studies have found that people that use them frequently have better sexual health and higher sexual function than those that don’t. They can make you feel more arousal, more desire, help you to become more lubricated and help you to orgasm more. 

Vibrators rule and they aren’t going to break your clit unless you want them to. So, stop worrying about what your vibrator may or may not be doing and just let it do what it's good at. Vibrating. Because no matter how good you or your partner may be in bed. You don’t vibrate!

Just remember that sex toys are enhancements to a great sex life! They are not here to replace or be a substitute for anyone. I mean maybe if my vibe started bringing me breakfast in bed… but we are not there yet. If you do happen to know of any vibrators that offer this service, please call me ASAP.
