I was inspired to write this post by Dangerous Lilly's rant about abstaining from vibrators and the (lack of) effect on her sensitivity.  Lilly shares her perspective on vibe shaming and the myth of vibrator addiction as someone who has always had difficulty reaching orgasm without vibration.  If you haven't read her piece, go do that now...especially if you or your partner struggle with...
