Basically, it seemed to me that if a woman is better than a man she’s dating in any aspect of her life, she’s automatically cast as “too intimidating.”I was immediately pissed, because a lot of the characteristics that men evidently considered intimidating were fundamental parts of me.
I’ve always been incredibly driven in my career, and I consider myself moderately successful.
While Debra Herbenick, lead researcher and associate director at Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion, claims her study is the first to examine beliefs about vibrators, there has been much buzz in the press about the prevalence of these personal (and interpersonal) devices. With the upcoming release of "Hysteria," a film about the early medical usage of vibrators to treat women, vibrators appear to be going even more mainstream -- if they haven't already achieved mainstream status.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for me a few years ago.
I tend to let things roll off my back, but I’m not afraid to speak up if something pisses me off.
I’m independent — I live alone, I support myself, and I don’t need anyone to help me change a lightbulb.
If you've ever thought that men are threatened by women using vibrators, a new national survey out of Indiana University may prove you wrong.
According to the survey, which polled over 3,000 Americans ages 18 to 60, the idea that vibrators are intimidating to women's sexual partners is largely held by, well, women: while 70 percent of men professed they had no problem with the buzzing sex toys, 37 percent of women either agreed or strongly agreed with the idea that using a vibrator would be upsetting to their partners.
