An anonymous straight guy was recently quoted in the British style magazine Dazed as saying, “I once drunkenly told some of my guy friends about experimenting with sex toys and they instantly mocked me, telling me I must be gay.” It’s a widely accepted myth: Men who use vibrators with their wives, girlfriends, hook-ups or one-night stands must be terrible in bed, or somehow less masculine. But new research from Erin D. Watson and a team from the department of family relations and applied nutrition at the University of Guelph, in Canada, found that straight men actually really, really, really enjoy breaking out a vibrator with their female partners.
MEL spoke with Watson about her findings; check out the conversation here.
