Good Vibes Solo Sex Survey Results Are In!
Good Vibrations Celebrates Masturbation Month with Vibrator Survey Results

SAN FRANCISCO, (May 30, 2017): Good Vibrations, the iconic, woman-founded pleasure emporium that turns 40 this year has some fascinating statistics to share in regards to vibrator use and masturbation. Good Vibrations pioneered the clean well-lit vibrator store where you can also find trusted information on all things sex related and these survey results are no exception.

Did you know that out of 375 people surveyed, 30% learned about vibrators by watching porn? Almost 70% stated that they prefer vibrators that offer clitoral stimulation and over 50% prefer using a wand type vibrator. 60% of respondents confirmed they use a vibrator during solo and partnered sex. Favorite location for vibrator use? 93% said in bed and over 40% prefer when a partner uses it on them while over 60% prefer vibrator use during partnered sex. 18% of the respondents prefer vibrating cock ring type vibrators and 35% prefer G-spot stimulation. The most important thing about a vibrator to people? Oh no, not just affordable price, but overwhelmingly body safe materials is the number one priority to people surveyed. Good Vibrations does not sell any product containing phthalates (the chemical softeners that raised concerns about toxicity in plastics).

Good Vibrations founded International Masturbation Month in 1995 in the wake of the controversy surrounding the firing of former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, who evoked conservative wrath when she stated that discussion of masturbation might have a place in sex education curricula. Realizing that one simple, sensible mention of solo pleasuring was enough to lose this prominent woman–the country’s first African-American surgeon general–her job convinced Good Vibrations staff that this most basic and accessible form of sex needed a serious image boost. Since that time others have followed suit and helped Good Vibrations spread the word.

“We have been talking to people about sex for 40 years and we know a thing or two about vibrators”- says Jackie Rednour-Bruckman, Good Vibrations Executive Vice President. “Pleasure should be celebrated and we invite everyone to stop by our stores and see what all the fun is about.”
