USING a vibrator is a pleasurable experience.
But now researchers say they could also help women with a variety of health problems.
Experts in the US have shown that their benefits could even justify free prescription of the devices to women.
The medics said that using a vibrator during masturbation can help a woman reach orgasm faster.
In addition, it can also help them climax multiple times.
In an article in the Journal of Urology, Dr. Alexandra Dubinskaya and her team found evidence of a variety of benefits in women who used a vibrator regularly.
Experts looked at 21 studies that analyzed the use of sex toys for medical purposes.
They found that women who used one improved pelvic floor health, reduced vulvar pain, and also saw an improvement in overall sexual health.
The research team said some women also saw improvements in incontinence.
However, it is not clear how long you would have to use the device before it resulted in health improvements.

Previous research had found that women who regularly experience orgasms with stress relief have better sexual health.
Finally, they said that vibrators should be seen not only as a pleasure but also as a therapeutic gadget.
They said female health professionals and doctors alike could benefit from prescribing vibrators to female patients.
“Given the potential health benefits of pelvic vibrators, their recommendation to women should be included in our treatment for pelvic floor disorders,” said Dr. Dubinskaya.
Experts previously said they were trying to “educate” the NHS on why sex toys could be beneficial for women in more ways than one.
dr David Goldmeier, sexual function consultant and lead clinician, told The Guardian that many toys can stimulate areas that other things can’t.
“While I imagine there are women who aren’t dysfunctional and enjoy sex toys, for those with a real problem, such items are hugely important,” he said.
Experts in the US previously said that there are some medical conditions that lead to reduced blood flow to the clitoris, which means the nerve endings don’t respond well.
They said that using a vibrator or having sex could fix this.
