Shedding the stigma against devices that could help women with sexual dysfunction
In an hour-long interview with The Broad Perspective, Dr. Marsha K. Guess and Dr. Kathleen Connell shared findings from their recent study that looked at women with arousal and orgasmic dysfunctions to see if genital vibratory stimulation devices have an impact on female sexual dysfunction.
What we really wanted to do here was identify an objective outcome and finding for women suffering from sexual dysfunction. Because we did that, what we are hoping is that people stop looking at these devices as sex toys and recognize them in their ability to impact the neurological sensation in the genital region, which may in fact improve sexual function for some women.” Dr. Guess
Drs. Guess and Connell shared the finding from their recent study on Wanda’s Picks Radio Show
On November 29, 2017, Dr. Marsha K. Guess and Dr. Kathleen Connell talked on the Wanda’s Picks Radio Show about their recent study that looked into the effects genital vibratory stimulation devices have on sexual function in women with arousal and orgasmic dysfunctions.
Rather than looking at sexual function as a complaint from women, we were charged with trying to figure out what could be going on anatomically… and ideally identify a potential solution.” Dr. Guess
Dr. Guess talks about why they started the study on “Middle Age Can Be Your Best Age”
Dr. Marsha K. Guess talked with Roy Richards on his “Middle Age Can Be Your Best Age” radio show on March 19, 2018, continuing to educate the public about her recent study. This study looks at using a genital vibratory stimulation device to improve sexual function in women with arousal and orgasmic dysfunctions.
Dr. Guess mentioned that they started this study for two reasons. The first reason was to identify a possible treatment option for women who have these problems. The second was to reduce the stigma around the use of stimulation devices for women. They are sold in sex shops, and women generally do not talk about using them.
We frequently watch commercials on male sexual dysfunction products, like Viagra. Knowing that, we thought if we could study the genital stimulating device and show it truly works, we could end the stigma.”Dr. Guess
