Can you overdo it with a vibrator, and cause yourself to need stronger stimulation to achieve an orgasm?

NuMe NuMe
On "Tuesday's with Nina" today, someone wrote in and asked some questions about concerns she had with
"becoming less sensitive and needing more power to reach orgasm."

Basically, she wanted to know if it was possible to overstimulate your clitoris by using a vibrator.

Do you think it is or isn't possible? What did you think of the suggestions Nina gave to help her out? Do you have any added suggestions?

I think it is possible. Ya I know, I don't have one. But I do have a penis and can say for sure that when I play hard with it, light play does nothing for me.

Our skin has the ability to develop a thicker layer, much like your hands develop callouses. At one time I could handle extremely hot metal, this was after 8 years in the steel/welding industries. Also, my skin could handle quit a bit of punishment, much like a martial arts person breaking a board with their bare hand.

It only make sense that a clitoris would develop the same type of resistance. If you get used to heavy vibes, a lighter vibe will not be as stimulating.

There was a time, before I found out about lube, when I would masturbate dry. This was during a time when I was traveling for two weeks at a time. When I would get home, sex with the wife was a long ordeal. Not that she complained but I had a hard time getting off. Her vagina just could not match the stimulation that my penis was looking for. Now, I always use lube (and toys) and I have no problems comeing when I want to.

I don't think it's possible, unless you're using super high vibrations for hours a day, weeks at a time. I tend to use really strong ones, but there are times a less powerful vibe works just as well, or a lower setting. It may be less sensitive for a short time, but if I go a day or two in between, or I'm really aroused, it doesn't seem to take more and more to get off.

Of course, sensitivity varies from person to person.

I worry about this for myself... But at the same time, I notice that it is more sensitive when I first start playing.. And I work my way up almost every time. This is all during one session, though. I don't think I've personally burnt my clitoris out permanently, and I do believe that taking a "break" every once in a while- going a week without vibrators- can actually restore a lot of sensitivity for me.


I haven't had a chance to watch the video from Nina yet, but I am pretty interested in the topic.

I tend to agree with your theory. I think every now and then our bodies need "cooling off" periods.

There are times when my husband and I will have weeks of really rough sex, then try to have a night of sweet gentle sex and neither of us will find climaxing easy.

However, I have noticed with age, my clitoris is very moody. She is extremely lazy and it takes jackhammer-like vibrations to rattle her at all. Most regular clitoral vibes, seem to aggravate her, in turn leaving me frustrated and pissed off. (Keep in mind, this lack of sensitivity could be part of my MS too, I am not saying it happens to all women as we age.)

I think it's possible. Well at least for me. I have a sensitive clit. It's not hard to overstimulate mine be it with a vibrator, finger, tongue and it makes it really hard to orgasm.

I think for short periods of time it could desensitize you but after a short break you would be fine. I think it would be hard to do permanent damage to yourself. I also know for me different times my clit sensitivity changes.

I never thought I would believe it but I think it can be true for some people. I know that since I changed from manual masturbation to using toys, my clit has become less sensitive. I can no longer come from oral and I used to all the time!
