Good vibrations: Teens and their toys 

I am an 18-year-old straight girl. I am also a virgin. After my 18th birthday, I bought a small vibrator. I love it — it's completely changed masturbation and I reached orgasm for the first time. However, I'm worried about developing a dependence on it. Should I hold off on using it until I get some real experience?

Teen With A Tech

Enjoy your vibrator, TWAT, and enjoy those orgasms — but mix it up. Masturbate with your vibrator and without; see how worked up you can get through fantasy alone; get yourself close to the edge and finish yourself off with your hand; experiment with nonvibrating, inanimate sex toys. And when you start having sexual experiences with nonvibrating, animate sex toys (boys), don't be shy about introducing them — or their genitals — to your vibrator. Dicks are just big clits, TWAT, and vibrators can work wonders on dicks, too.

I have a 15-year-old daughter. I am bisexual and work in marketing for the adult industry; both are things I explained to her when I thought she was old enough to form an understanding of what they meant.

Recently, I returned from an adult-industry convention, where I often pick up new toys. One of my gift bags contained a petite sparkly purple vibrator, and I thought, well it's not my style but maybe I should give it to my daughter along with a lecture on masturbation being a great alternative to sex. Even though I am open-minded, this thought still made me uncomfortable, and I relegated the toy to my nightstand full of toys that aren't my style. I figured that no teenager wants to be given a masturbatory device by a parent. Was I wrong?

Teenage Masturbation Icky

No, you were right: No teenager wants to be given a masturbatory device by her parent. But that doesn't mean a teenager wouldn't be delighted to have a masturbatory device. A moment of awkwardness and a little feigned teenage discomfort/disgust — perhaps even a show of discarding the device where it could be easily retrieved after Mom apologizes and retreats — is a price that most teenage girls would be willing to pay to have a brand-new sparkly purple vibrator of her very own. (Oh, and I'm thinking she knows about your drawer full of sex toys. Maybe you could just tell her that anything in there that's still in its original packaging is up for grabs.)

How come when I look up the history of the T-shirt on Wikipedia, there's a picture of you? Are you aware of this?


I invented the T-shirt, and every time one is sold — even one with rapper 50 Cent on it — I get a royalty check. That's why I don't have to have a real job and can devote my time to answering questions from virgins, bisexuals, and people interested enough in the history of the T-shirt to read the Wikipedia entry about it.
