Dr. Minkin, a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Yale University School of Medicine, is one of the nation’s foremost experts on menopause and sexual health. She’s also a major advocate for vibrators. Dr. Minkin advocates the use of vibrators to keep vaginas happy and healthy.

Is there a specific vibrator you recommend?
I like the We-Vibe vibrators. They’re made of medical-grade materials, and they’re BPA free and reliable. Some brands of sex toys are not not terribly well monitored or checked, so I like that the We-Vibe comes from a reputable, good company. Also, they’re supplying vibrators for a study I’m doing. I help direct a clinic at Yale for women who have had cancer and want to get back to their normal lives. Often, they’ve had surgery or pelvic radiation which disrupts blood flow and causes scarring. We are getting ready to do a study on how vibrators can help these women keep their pelvic floors functional and happy.
