Whether it’s your magic wand that grants your wishes or a rampant rabbit that hits the spot, vibrators come in all shapes and sizes and there’s plenty on offer to keep you coming back for more.
Romina Puma, a comedian who has muscular dystrophy, is calling on women to forget diamonds and realise vibrators are actually a girl’s best friend.
In this video and blog, she opens up about her experiences using sex toys and how they can keep her going all night long.

The power of persuasion
I never used to masturbate at all. Probably because coming from a Catholic Italian family you can’t talk about sex let alone touch yourself!
My best friend introduced me to the world of vibrators. She told me to experiment with them, so I could understand my own body. Before then I didn’t think I needed the help of a vibrator but my friend kept saying, “try, try, try” – She finally convinced me!
Being a beginner
So I decided to visit a sex shop. I remember when I walked in there were so many vibrators to choose from – I didn’t know where to start! A shop assistant spotted me a mile off. She was like yep – it’s her first one! She approached me and said “Can I help you with anything?” I said “yes! I don’t know – help!” And she said “This one here is for beginners”.
I came home afterwards and tried it out… And honestly I couldn’t stop! It was like that scene from ‘Sex in the City’ when Charlotte gets a rabbit and the other girls go to her flat to rescue her from using it because she couldn’t stop!
Learn how to pleasure yourself
Using a vibrator helped me learn so much about my body and which position is the right one to make me come. Now when I have sex with someone I know how I like to be pleasured – how to reach that goal! Sometimes it can be difficult, especially when you don’t have a full relationship with a guy or it’s your first time in the sack together. My motto is if it doesn’t go well, you can always wait until he leaves and then take your rabbit out of the drawer!
For me a vibrator is such a great Plan B! I used to always go out on the pull when I wanted to find sex, but now I’m getting old and lazy, using a vibrator can be so much easier.
