What's all the BUZZ about? ORGASMS are good for your health :- o

     Recently, Beauty Wonkette made a very interesting discovery.  Did you know that vibrators were developed to treat female hysteria?  Mmmm hmmmm.  Indeed they were!  But these days, they're improving the health, happiness and empowerment of women unafraid to go after The Big O.

     Before the Butterfly Kiss, the Xtreme Rabbit and Lelo’s $15,000, 24-karat gold vibrator, there was the “Manipulator,” a 19th century steam-powered tool developed, not for women, but for the male physicians whose hands and wrists had become fatigued from the pelvic massage therapy they were giving patients suffering from hysteria.

     That’s right: Vibrators were created to relieve men’s discomfort when they became pooped from too much lady-patient genital stimulation—a commonly practiced medical treatment back in the day. No, seriously.

     The new film "Hysteria," starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy, is set in the Victorian era and deals with this very issue. Dancy’s character, Dr. Granville, develops carpal tunnel from all the manual labor and thus creates a solution—the vibrator.  Bzzzzzzzzz

      ‘Hysteria’ is no longer a recognized illness of course, but masturbation is still a well-practiced tension-tamer. Today, over 90 percent of women report that they masturbate regularly (nice, ladies!), and there’s a huge industry devoted to the creation of ever more pleasurable devices to bring about the Big O. That’s a good thing, because half of Americans (both women and men) say they’ve used a vibrator. Studies show that more women achieve orgasm with the help of a vibrator. So go ahead, this may be the one shopping spree your significant other won’t complain about.

Sex Does A Body Good

     The benefits of vibrators aren’t all fun and frills though. Masturbation can actually help improve your health as self-love increases the incidence of “friendly” bacteria in the vagina and allows for increased fluid movement, which flushes out the yucky stuff such as UTI-causing bacteria.

     Frequent orgasms—with a partner or without—can also improve cardiovascular health and lower your risk of type-2 diabetes. And if you suffer from insomnia, as over 60 percent of women do, masturbation is a natural sleep aid, helping relieve tension and releasing dopamine, a hormone that spikes in anticipation of a sexual climax. Post-orgasm, calming oxytocin and endorphins are released for a gentle afterglow and peaceful sleep. Um, awesome.

     Need more reason to touch yourself? Science also shows that masturbation can improve a blue mood, relieve the pain of menstrual cramps, PMS symptoms, and improve your sex life by helping you recognize what your body responds to.

    And that rush of blood that accompanies your climax? That’s your beauty bonus that leaves you with flushed cheeks and an (ahem) healthy glow.  (Ah, the understanding of which made Francois Nars RICH!)

     the end :-)
