A man wonders if his girlfriend’s newfound interest in vibrators is a reflection upon his ability to please her.
Dear Sexes: My girlfriend has recently said she wanted to try a vibrator. It’s making me very insecure, as it feels like maybe I’m not doing everything for her that she wants. A few things have crossed my mind, but the main concern I’ve had is whether I’m “big” enough for her or not. I’ve never measured myself for an actual size, and she tells me I’m big, but I just don’t know. She certainly has pleasure with me, but I can’t keep from asking, is she thinking of replacing me?
She Said: So you’re out to dinner, you’ve had an amazing meal, maybe some incredible wine, you’re feeling great and so is your girl. Along comes the waiter with the dessert menu, asking, “Would you like some amazing whatever-you-love-cake-and-home-made-something-else-you-love-most-on-the-side?”
And you reply, “You know what? I’ve had enough good. No more good for me. I’m all set on good. More good might mean that the first good thing I ate just wasn’t good enough.”
No! You eat the frickin’ dessert! Because it’s delicious!
Give your girl the dessert, my friend. Feed it to her, bite by bite (if she wants) and watch her love every second of it and think to yourself, I was a part of all this goodness.
He Said: Hang on. I need a minute to collect myself. I’m still trying to get over the idea that you’ve never measured yourself… Okay, I’m ready to proceed. If I had a dollar for every “my girlfriend just got a vibrator” question, I’d be a rich man! Well, maybe not rich, but I’d definitely have at least thirty-six bucks or so.
I feel like we need to start a partner’s vibrator outreach group, so everyone in this predicament can talk to others in the same situation. Now, let’s get down to business. Just so we’re clear, the word “predicament” was said completely in jest. Your situation is not uncommon, and it’s nothing to freak out about. Regardless, I’m glad you asked.
This is more about communication than vibrators (or size). Your girlfriend could be newly interested in vibrators for numerous reasons, but no machine is gonna replace you, as long as you and your girlfriend are going strong. If your girlfriend “certainly has pleasure” with you, keep doing what you’re already doing. If you’re worried she’s not having enough pleasure, try some new moves, or start a conversation to see if there’s areas you can improve upon. When in doubt, talk it out. There’s no need to buy a penis pump (yet).
