Can you use a vibrator too much?

No partner at the minute so the vibrator is earning its keep grin.

But will using it a lot make it harder and harder to orgasm with a partner - if and when I find one?! Is there like a female version of death grip?

Thank you.

Well on the basis death grip is an MN myth then no.

If however you believe death grip is a thing then logically the same almost certainly applies to women as no human can replicate a vibrator or suck jobbie and most men aren’t as big as the average dildo...

For me I find that once I'm with a man I really like all memories of the vibrator are out of the window .

Regardless of who I’m seeing or not seeing, l’ve more or less been a daily user for years, so l would say no, you can’t overdo it.

I am with StarlightLady on this. If repeated stimulation made it harder to orgasm, then most of us would have stopped cumming years ago.

It is a bit like the myth that shaving makes hair grow back stronger and faster. I have been shaving for half a century , so if that were true I'd be shaving a few times every day by now and finding it impossible to use a normal razor because the hair was too tough.

Well that’s reassuring, thank you all. I feel like it’s taking longer to reach orgasm so wondered if I was storing up trouble for the future!

Death fanny is definitely a thing from what I've read.

In my experience yes, it can be overdone. Perhaps I was using it too fiercely, but after a while, I could hardly feel anything from my partner's tongue or fingers.

Any intense sexual actvity is going to leave some numbness at first but l can’t see this being anything other than temporary.

To add, I’m in my 40s and have been buzzing very frequently since my teens. Everything still works fine. Including with other people. Different types of itches that both need regular scratching.

Nah don't worry @Trobby

Used vibrators since a teenager but can cum without one.... and the one I currently have should come with a warning grin a good warning. !

I think they can make you cum quicker. Especially if used right before sex as part of foreplay. I've used one probably daily for the last 6 years and have only found them an enhancement to my sex life.

I dont have s fanny but yes, i think that using a vibe can lead some people to being insensitive to stimulation via sexual intercourse.

@Arnoldthecat - I think cltoris owners are best placed to judge on this.

I think it all has to depend on the individual to some extent. I had an FWB who had loads of toys but she couldn't get too much oral from me. grin.

I disagree. As one who has ministered to a good number of clitorises, i feel i can add some value to the conversation. I have known women who have been without a sexual partner for some time and who have been using vibrators to the point where they have become desensitised. Of course each one of us is an individual.

Death Fanny. Sounds like a horror film (a la Teeth). Or a death metal band.

If death grip is real, then vibratus toomuchius is probably an issue too.

Get a few vibrators that do different things and switch it up a bit...problem solved!

Personally I'm v sensitive and they're all too strong for me. And too artificial.

Call me old fashioned but imagination and the real thing are my restricted diet!

I think you can become used to needing a particular type of stimulation to orgasm. It's not permanent though. If you're worried that is starting to happen then just stay away from the vibrator for a little while and all should be well.
