When I talk about my Magic Wand massager I often get questions and a lot of the same ones come up over and over again and honestly, there’s one that I always find a bit silly: “Aren’t you afraid you’ll get ‘addicted’ to it?”
People seem to believe that there’s a very real possibility that using a powerful vibrator like the Magic Wand massager will make one unable to orgasm any other way, effectively “ruining” them for any other form of stimulation and rendering them “addicted” to the vibrator. I’m here to tell you that you really needn’t worry. This fear is largely rooted in stigma around the use of vibrators.
So, where does this concern come from and is there any actual basis for it? The answers to those questions are complicated and in her 2015 piece Can You Become Addicted To Your Vibrator? Rachel Kramer Bussel talks to some experts on sex, relationships, and even sex toys and they have some very helpful insights as to why people worry about this and what can actually happen to our bodies when we use our vibrators (spoiler alert: nothing bad). They even talk about the Magic Wand massager specifically.
While it seems lots of folks are worried that vibrators could become something of an addiction, you can rest assured that there’s nothing to worry about. And, no, I’m not afraid of becoming addicted to my Magic Wand massager.
