Do Vibrators Actually Decrease Your | India News today English

[ad_1]

Vibrators owe two things to Sex and the City: Mainstream normalization and, unfortunately, the proliferation of some scary sounding myths. In a now-infamous 1998 episode the HBO hit, high-strung Charlotte confides to deep-thinking Carrie, “I think I broke my vagina…with the rabbit [vibrator]. I’m scared if I keep using it, I’ll never be able to enjoy sex with a man again.”

Well Char, it’s myth-busting time, and nearly 15 years later, it bears repeating: No matter how often you use it, you don’t need to stress about becoming wholly dependent on a sex toy to bring yourself over the finish line, and no toy time or vigorous solo session is going to desensitize your bits—at least not for long.

The masturbation myth

The myth is a frightening: Over-reliance on vibrators or other toys will reduce your sensitivity to that point that you’ll build up a tolerance. Soon, you’ll be burning through a series of ever more powerful vibrators, desperately chasing your next big O. In this scenario, you can’t get anything accomplished manually, let alone with a partner. Even just financially, that’s horrifying—vibrators ain’t cheap. Intimately and romantically, that’s also horrifying. Fortunately, it’s not actually a life-altering threat.

“This concern is extremely common,” said Matt Lachman, a certified sex therapist and owner of Cleveland Sex Therapy. People with vaginas who use vibrators do express concern about losing sensitivity, going numb, or even becoming “addicted” to their devices, he noted, but he’s seen those fears becoming less of a problem over the past decade or so, as open discussion of sexuality has become more mainstream.

Jenni Skyler, PhD and resident sex therapist at Adam and Eve, agreed, telling Lifehacker, “I don’t know how widespread it is anymore, with the internet debunking that myth.” Still, there are still a lot of people out there googling “dead vagina,” so let’s get into it. The discussion, I mean.

Alexandra Fine, CEO and co-founder of Dame, feels for worriers out there—and wants to help educate them. She said, “A big question we always get at Dame is, ‘Am I going to get addicted to my vibrator?’ From a scientific perspective, the answer is no – it doesn’t meet the criteria of what an addiction is. If many people are asking the same question, though, it’s important that we answer it correctly.”

Can you use a vibrator too much?

There is a small kernel of truth to the myth that too much vibration or stimulation can zap your privates into a state of numbness—but if it does happen, it’s only temporary.

“Basically the truth of it is, yes, your nerve endings can be desensitized with overstimulation in the moment,” Skyler said. “So if you use a very powerful stimulation—a very powerful vibrator for instance— then your nerve endings are like, ‘Whoa, overload.’ That can certainly happen, but they recalibrate a few minutes later.” The myth that your nerve endings will be ground into oblivion—gone forever—is just that.

Lachman agreed that some numbness can be expected with overuse, especially if you’re using a high setting on your toy or going at it constantly, but compared the numbness to the temporary sensation of having a body part fall asleep. “It’ll come back 10 minutes or whatever,” he assured us.

There is a caveat worth noting, Lachman added: If you are exclusively masturbating with a vibe, your body may get used to that and come to expect release only from that method, “so when you have partnered sex or when you masturbate without a vibrator, it may be slightly difficult to achieve that orgasm.”

This temporary loss of sensitivity can affect people with penises, too, especially if they’re gripping really hard with their hand was self-pleasuring. (Please, don’t forget lube.)

How to recover sensitivity

Besides using lube to lessen the friction, you have a few options to avoid a temporary numbness or bounce back from it. Use a lower setting on your vibrator, for one, “instead of just putting that shit on a 10 and going to town,” advised Lachman.

Skyler recommends bullet vibrators, which are generally smaller and only feature one speed setting. If you experience numbness while you’re being intimate with a partner, she advises taking breaks as needed. (We’re sure you can think of other activities to keep you busy while you wait for your nerve endings to simmer down.)

Switch things up whenever you can, too. Fine explained, “If we’re always masturbating in the same way with the same products, we’ll start creating a strong pathway to pleasure that could become limiting. The concept of ‘fetish’ is a good example of this because if you really need a feather to have an orgasm, without that feather you may not experience pleasure. If we get so specific that we can only experience pleasure in one way, it can be problematic, so it’s important to have different vibrators and connect with our bodies to find pleasure in different ways.”

Katerina Lin, head of luxury sexual lifestyle brand JimmyJane, suggested that the easiest way to avoid the problem is to listen to your body. “Start with slow play, with yourself. Really understand yourself,” she said. Figure out how you respond to, and experiment with different pressures and paces. If you get too used to certain products or models, there are plenty of options out there. (JimmyJane, she notes, aims to create toys that simulate human touch more closely than ones made of other materials, so maybe that will change things up a bit).

Lachman also stressed the importance of being open with your partner. Explain that in your private time, you use a toy, so you might not come as easily during sex with them. An honest discussion beforehand can prevent them from feeling bad in the moment (even though, as we know, sex should be about pleasure, not the pursuit of an orgasm). And hey, maybe they’ll even be down to bring the device into bed so you can both enjoy it.

Huzurabad byelection: It’s BJP’s Ram mandir versus TRS’ sop | Sidnaz Blog

[ad_1]

HYDERABAD: BJP is playing the emotive Ram Mandir card to counter TRS’ sops and schemes to woo voters ahead of the crucial bypoll to the Huzurabad assembly constituency.
The 5,000-disciplined army of BJP and its frontal organisations are raising the Ram Mandir issue. Panna Pramukhs, each of whom has the target of connecting with 60 voters, are silently taking the slogan to the electorate that “a vote for the lotus symbol is equivalent to contributing a brick in the construction of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya.”
BJP claims the response has been good from the people as a majority of them have been raising hands when asked by Panna Pramukhs how many of them had contributed money during the public donation collection done by Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust for construction of Ram Mandir and offering them another opportunity to add to their good deeds. “TRS is depending on money to win the election. BJP’s slogan is to meet every voter at least once. It is up to the voters to decide whether they want to do ‘punyam’ (good deeds, good karma) by voting for BJP which is constructing the Ram Mandir or account for ‘paapam’ (sin) by voting against lotus,” BJP’s Huzurabad in-charge and former MP AP Jithender Reddy told TOI.
Backward classes welfare minister Gangula Kamalakar, who is leading TRS charge in Huzurabad, said BJP has always tried to polarise voters on religious lines. “The issue of Ram Mandir is not new as BJP tried to use it in earlier elections too. But people of Telangana have been voting for development and welfare schemes of TRS government and K Chandrasekhar Rao’s promise of transforming the state into Bangaru Telangana,” he said. However, the minister hastened to add that they would soon come out with a counter strategy against the saffron party’s Hindutva card.
Another senior TRS leader said people know that the KCR government has been spending on temples, including Yadagirigutta, enhanced the honorarium of archakas, muessins and imams. It has given land for cemeteries to the Christian community in and around Greater Hyderabad, in tune with its secular ideology, he added.

After Ramappa, Telangana eyes UNESCO tag for more sites | | Sidnaz Blog

[ad_1]

HYDERABAD: Buoyed with the UNESCO world heritage tag for Rudreshwara (Ramappa) temple in Mulugu district, the Telangana government has decided to get dossiers prepared for at least half-a-dozen historical places in the state and get them similar recognition.
It would prepare dossiers for the historic Thousand Pillar temple in Warangal, Sammakka Sarakka (tribal festival) in Mulugu, Pillala Marri (over 700-year-old banyan tree) in Mahabubnagar, Warangal Fort, Mutyala Dhara waterfalls in Jayashankar Bhupalapally district apart from Golconda and Charminar.
“The archaeology department has been asked to come up with the list of places which have rich history, heritage and culture. The list will be given chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for finalising the names. Once the names are finalised, dossier preparation will be started. A consultant will also be hired for the purpose,” culture and tourism minister V Srinivas Goud told TOI on Saturday. He said there were many places in the state which qualify for the world heritage status.
After getting the world recognition, the state government has decided to develop the temples and create a buffer around Ramappa temple to protect the monument. As number of tourists have already started thronging the Ramappa temple, the tourism department is planning to construct hotels in nearby places.
The minister said the main Ramappa temple was in the purview of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), while three temples near Pakala Lake need to be developed. The government would also see no structures come up in the buffer zone of the main temple, he added. “To promote tourism in Ramappa and surrounding areas, the government is planning to develop ‘Kakatiya Circuit’,” Srinivas Goud said.

HYDERABAD: Justice T Amarnath Goud of the Telangana high court has convicted six officers in a contempt case and sentenced them to jail for six months along with a penalty of Rs 2,000 each.
The judge convicted IAS officers — A Santha Kumari (special chief secretary of environment and forest sciences) and D Amoy Kumar (Rangareddy district collector) — and IFS officers — R Shobha (principal chief conservator of forests) and Sunita M Bhagwat — and along with divisional forest officer Janakiram and additional collector and forest settlement officer S Tirupati Rao in the case and imposed jail terms and penalties on them.
The judge handed out the sentences for violating the court orders in a land case in Rangareddy district.
The judge handed out the sentences under the Contempt of Courts Act for violating the court orders issued in respect of 383 acres of land belonging to Mohammed Sirajuddin and nine others of Maheswaram mandal in Rangareddy district.
The land was sought to be converted into a reserve forest by dispossessing the owners of their property. Despite advice from the forest settlement officer that the action of the revenue and forest officials was not feasible and despite a court order to either acquire the land or return the same to the owners, the officials had failed to do so inviting contempt of court charges.

Telangana bars reg of farmland less than 20 guntas | | Sidnaz Blog

[ad_1]

Sources said developers hit upon this idea after making efforts to sell undivided share of land in unapproved layouts and unregistered venture projects with Telangana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) to gullible buyers. (Picture used for representational purpose only)

HYDERABAD: The Telangana municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department has told the registration and stamps department not to register farmland or plots below 20 guntas (2,000 square metres).
The move comes after officials realised some property developers were registering open plots in illegal layouts in the name of ‘farm plots’. Unauthorised layout registration was banned by the state government in September 2020.
Sources said developers hit upon this idea after making efforts to sell undivided share of land in unapproved layouts and unregistered venture projects with Telangana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) to gullible buyers.
The developers were trying to take advantage of the fact that one does not need a layout copy to register agricultural land. “Besides stopping registration of farm plots below 20 guntas, we have also asked the registration department to insist on the layout copy if a farm plot abuts a new road,” MA&UD department principal secretary Arvind Kumar told STOI.
He said the decision to stop registration of plots in unauthorised layouts had paid dividends and the government was able to control illegal ventures across the state. The government banned registration of non-agriculture properties not having either a layout copy in case of open plots or a sanctioned plan in case of buildings.
Following this decision, thousands of layouts, which were developed without seeking approvals from the civic bodies, were stuck as layouts and plots could not be regularised under the layout regularisation scheme (LRS). Soon after banning illegal plots, 25 lakh applications were filed under the LRS, an official said.

Telangana: Notification for polls to Legislative Council in | Sidnaz Blog

[ad_1]

HYDERABAD: Intense lobbying is on for the seven vacant seats in Telangana State Legislative Council with indications that the Commission of India may issue a poll notification for six seats in August.
The ECI has written a letter to the state government asking about the coronavirus situation in the state. It will take a decision on issuing poll notification based on the reply from the government, which sources said is in favour of completing the Council elections.
The lobbying for the seven seats is intense as a berth in the Council is guaranteed. The ruling party has enough MLAs to send six of its leaders to council under MLAs quota without a contest. The opposition is unlikely to contest as it does not have numbers on its side.
Apart from six MLCs, the term of another MLC M Srinivas Reddy elected under the Governor quota ended on June 17.
Earlier, the ECI had postponed the council elections as there was a rise in Covid-19 cases during the second wave of the pandemic. The term of six TRS members in the council expired on June 3—council chairman Gutha Sukender Reddy, deputy chairperson Neti Vidyasagar, former deputy CM Kadiyam Srihari, chief whip B Venkateshwarlu, Md Fareeduddn and Akula Lalitha.
A senior leader in the ruling TRS told TOI that aspirants are keeping their fingers crossed as KCR made many promises to leaders at the time of their joining TRS.
