    I think the idea of this giveaway is awesome, but this is your professional website, did you really need to include the tidbit that you masturbated? I think it would be insinuated without having to spell it out. Remember, you’re an ambassador for some big companies and others are reaching out to you every day. None of those companies need a visual of you using a vibrator.

      I don’t think it’s a problem – most giveaways are tried by the blogger. Wouldn’t it be odd if she gave away a protein powder she never tried herself?

      First of all, I never said I masturbated – there you go drawing your own conclusions. Second of all, the “first of all” was a really bad joke – I’m sorry if no one gets my sense of humor. :) Third of all, I hate referring to this blog as a “professional website” yes, it’s a big part of my profession, but it’s also where I kick back and lay it all out there (most of the time unfiltered) When I work with companies, they already know my personality and appreciate my honesty and ability to keep it real. Like, you know, admitting I actually used their product.

    • Becky
      August 29, 2012

      First of all, it’s not clear that she masturbated. She and her fiancee could have used the vibrator together. And secondly, why is it a problem for a company to know that somebody masturbates? She didn’t post photos of her using it, and she didn’t describe anything that would be embarrassing or inappropriate. Masturbation is common and normal. I applaud Meghann for stepping up and talking about this so directly.

      • Meghann
        August 29, 2012

        I had to pass this comment to a friend on how ridiculous it was. The whole point of the post was to say that it shouldn’t be a big deal and here she is trying to shut it down. It’s just sex, everyone does it. I think it was awesome you wrote this, because our society is filled with so many complete prudes, its embarrassing that I am part of it sometimes.

        Go Meghann. This post made me like you even more than I already did!

        Cara, I couldn’t get your comment out of my head. Please know that being “open minded” like so many comments are saying, yet calling someone a “prude” for being uncomfortable with this post isn’t congruent. Would I post something like this on my blog? Absolutely not. Will I stop reading Meghann’s blog because she did? No!

      • Therese
        August 29, 2012

        (part 2) My husband was once in a work environment where women talked openly about things like masturbation in the company of married men. It fueled my husband’s addiction, led to an affair, and broke my heart.

      • Therese
        August 29, 2012

        (part 3) I am NOT saying that women who use these products are husband-stealers. I AM saying that I have very strong opinions about the sacredness of sexual relationships and that may make me a “prude” in your book. But please refrain from name-calling when someone shares a differing opinion!

        Definition of prude: A person who is or claims to be easily shocked by matters relating to sex or nudity.

      • Therese
        August 29, 2012

        If that’s the definition of prude, than I can hardly say I qualify. I’m the most jaded person ever and nothing related to sex surprises me anymore. As for nudity, I’m a nurse. I see it on a daily basis. Old news. Truly not trying to offend you, just asking you to refrain from name calling and making assumptions!

      • Cara @ I Don’t Believe in Diets
        August 29, 2012

        I was trying to make the point was that I didn’t think it was name calling. However, I do not think what I said was contradictory at all. We do live in a society of prudes (I actually took a class on this in college, it was very interesting) and I do find that being a part of this culture is sometimes embarrassing, as is many other things our society does sometimes. I think that everyone should be more open about sex, and blog posts like this really open the discussion up rather than shut it down. I do not think me stating the facts that we live in a prude society is shutting this conversation down and being close minded.

        Were you the original one to comment about this (Krystina) but then respond with another username? so confused.

        Oh okay thanks. The definition without the explanation confused me. I’ve never heard the word “prude” used in a non-offenseive way before. I’m intrigued that you took a whole class about it!

        And no, my only comments on this post have been directly in this thread as a response to you. Not sure which comment you’re talking about? Comparing sex toys to protein powder? Definitely not me! haha.

    • Katie @ Year of Katie
      August 29, 2012

      Oh man, I really disagree! I think it’s awesome to be open about stuff like this! Meghann’s blog is about health, and sexual health is important too! Personally, I think the embarrassment around masturbation and women being sexually satisfied is something that needs to be changed, and one step towards that change is open discussion.

      Furthermore, I’m sure Meghann doesn’t want to be involved with companies that would forgo business with her on the basis of her honesty on a blog that has always been totally honest!

      Also, saying “I used the vibrator” is not nearly the same is giving a visual.

      Go Meghann! Awesome give away, and even if you didn’t mean it like this, what an excellent feminist post!

    Meghann, as someone a little older than you (I’ll be 41 in October), I’ve visited slightly sleazy “toy” stores for my vibrator needs. (And I once attended a “pleasure party” at a friend’s place.)

    I think it’s fantastic that these Trojan Vibrations are available at the local drugstore, because you’re right — there should be no shame in sex.

    I have to back up what most of the comments have already said- it’s healthy to be open about sex. Everyone does it (or should be doing it), it’s one of life’s greatest pleasures, yet we’ve buttoned ourselves up so tightly about anything even remotely sexual. We can laugh at Seth Rogan’s relentless sexual innuendo, we can pass Victoria’s Secret ads without batting an eyelash, but god forbid a blogger admits that she tried out a new vibrator. It didn’t phase me at all when I read that you had, and was surprised as I scrolled through the first string of comments. It’s a shame that masturbation is so shut away most of the time, and good on you for your honesty!

    I think it’s commendable and totally freaking awesome that you were open about this topic. Sexual health and experimentation are not dirty subjects, though they’re far too often treated as such. Kudos to you for wanting to write about the world’s best freebie and for not censoring yourself.

    I think it’s especially badass because I feel like many healthy living blogs often fall into a rut where posts can either get a bit boring and repetitive, or sales-y as bloggers review products – this is honest and open, and it sure as hell isn’t boring. :) Two thumbs up!

I think you would love the honesty and openess of one of my favprite “pleasure party” hostesses Chrystal B. http://bliss-radio.com/ . I have been to several parties with her and they always fun and informative and eye opening.

    And posts like yours and hers bring to light that yes, we woman are sexual beings, yes, we use toys either by oursevles or with our partnes, and yes, it’s all good as consenting adults :) It’s not something to be ashamed about at all, and the more we openly talk about it, the less the stigma on women and the sexual aspects of our lives. People are entitled to their opinions and your are entitled to write your thoughts on the open and public platform of a blog, for which I am thankful for.

    I’m not entering the giveaway because of the ‘fits in your purse” thing. I want it to barely fit in a duffle bag…

    Thank you for openly and frankly discussing this. We shouldn’t be shamed for something that is natural. Women have sex and like to orgasm *feigns shock* Seriously this is nbd. Men are allowed to frankly discuss sex. No one bats an eye when they buy hustler and playboy but oh my a women actually admits to have sexual desire, people freak out. We need more posts and discussions like this.

    What’s the difference in buying a vibrator or other toy and reading the 50 Shades books? Gets the same result…hot sex! Go Meghann!! The first adult toy party I had I invited 30 people and 45 showed up. I have a VERY small home. Everyone had a blast and was SHOCKED that my mom was there. Mom and Dad like sex too!

    Meghann, you are probably the most liberal HLB that I read, which is why I keep coming back to your blog. Thanks for not being uptight and rude with any of your posts. You’re a very open and personal individual, which is why I think you have such a huge following!

    I’ve read every post of your blog for at least 2 years and I’m not sure I’ve commented more than once before. I’m coming out of the proverbial closet though to say major kudos to you for this post. I don’t think women do themselves any favors by not talking about this kind of thing and I’m glad you’ve opened the conversation!

    This is my favorite blog and I find it so sad that people take the time to read and comment on stuff they find offensive. If something bothers me then I skip it. The “get a life comment” was pathetic and im glad your response to it was so eloquent. Good for you for being classy!!!

    GASP. Haha. I had to do a double take when I saw that blog title. Go, girl! Way to do exactly what all those talks at BlogHer were talking about when they said “find your voice” and stick with it. I LOVE that you brought this up. Too many women are afraid to talk about their sexual health! I say down with the stigma. Kudos, girl. Don’t let any of the haters get you down. FYI you’re officially my favorite blogger. And, yes. I entered the contest. 😉

    Definitely in agreement with the vibe that this is an important topic not to be ashamed of – but seriously – 1 or 2 people said it was unprofessional and like a million people jumped down their throats. All the comments make it seem like 20 people said how bad it was – there were 2 vs. EVERYONE else.

    But still, great post today. I think it’s important to normalize sex issues among females for sure!

    1) Say that commercial was HILARIOUS
    2) Enter the giveaway (no shame here! I’ve never tried a vibrator, but they sound like great fun, ha!)
    3) Say thanks for being an honest, open person! You rock :)

    Hey girl, I’ve gotten a really rough time for putting my thoughts on my personal blog (about 2-3 years ago) and I stopped blogging. Boooo to that…. and YAY for you putting yourself out there. Regardless of anyone’s opinions, you’re staying true to yourself. I wish I would have kept going and I’m so proud that you will. Big hug to you! You are inspirational :)

    There’s really nothing I can say that isn’t an echo of all the positive comments above, but you really are pretty darn awesome, Meghann! I love that you had the guts to post this & totally agree that sexuality is a part of healthy living. I’m definitely not afraid to say I entered the contest & hope to win (along with, so far, over 600 people!). I also think it’s pretty awesome that Trojan is selling these at ‘regular’ stores!

    Meghann, you had me at the word vibrator! I’ve always enjoyed reading your blog and I think this such a great way to open up dialogue for introducing sex toys into people’s sex lives! Thanks for being so open and honest on your blog.

    Been married 5 years now and have a great sex life… and I’ve never used a vibrator. Perhaps this could be the gateway to something more for us?

    Love this post! I hate when people act shocked that women may want to masturbate… but on that side note, I’ve never actually had a vibrator before! *fingers crossed* I win

    I can’t believe all these women saying they’ve never tried a vibrator before! Have you tried Trojan’s vibrating ring? If not, I highly recommend.
