Wait, Your Vibrator Can Do WHAT?!

You probably thought that the sole use of your vibrator that’s hidden in your desk drawer (no need to be ashamed, girl) was to help you masturbate. I mean, what else would a perfectly-sized, vibrating little machine do for you?

As it turns out, your vibrator can help you with something else that will probably really surprise you – it can make you a better singer. Or, technically, improve your vocal range. A new study found that holding a vibrator against your throat can improve your vocal range, projection and power.

Um, yeah. Vibrators can improve your singing. I know… I was left a little speechless, too. I mean, first of all, how did anyone find out about this? Who was having trouble singing one day and thought, “maybe if I hold my vibrator against my throat… yeah, that will totally work.”

Regardless of how ridiculous it sounds, it does work and is considered to be vibration therapy. Dr. David Ley is the professor who came up with this alternate use of popular sex toys. When one of his singer friends had lost her voice, he said he noticed a lot of tension in her throat. He tried holding a vibrator against her throat. The vibrations relax the muscles in the throat and that in turn “eases vocal fatigue and improves the overall sound quality of a voice.”

Sounds pretty crazy, right? Dr. David Ley claims this technique has already helped improve the vocal techniques of 150 singers. Sara Farb, a stage actor from Canada who tested this theory out, claimed that after just one session, the results were “unbelievable.” She said, “That night was my best performance. Not just of that run, but in recent memory.” Sounds pretty legit.

The vibrator doesn’t just help one time, though – Dr. Ley says the results appear to be permanent. He also found that putting the vibrator on different pressure points produced different sounds.

Honestly, this just sounds… crazy. But if it works, I guess that’s a good thing, right? It looks like vibrators aren’t just for masturbating anymore. Still, I’d suggest buying a separate one if you’re going to be using it to improve your vocal sound. I feel like using just one for, ahem, everything isn’t very sanitary.

If you’re a singer, would you ever try vibration therapy? Have you ever? Do you think this sounds crazy or pretty legit? Tell us in the comments!

    an done, I am so not in the mood for sex. However, I will say that this is few and far between.Toys! Men, don’t be aifard of toys. Women who use, and or want toys, are not saying you are inadequate in any way (that is a generalization of course, because I am certain there are some that are saying that.) For the most part, people are looking for ways to spice up there sex life. Some turn to polyarmoury or swinging. Others turn to toys. Some start having affairs. A lot us don’t play nice in the sand box with other people, so toys are a wonderful way to add a new dimension to your sex life without added potentially dangerous (either STD or destruction of relationship) people to your sex life. I would say 90% of the people in the world don’t like vanilla sex. However, that is all most of them experience. That is purely a guess, I have no data to back that claim up though. Toys, provide a way to get out of the vanilla sex, to break that routine of the same old same old. Other ways are costumes, role playing, or just try different positions. If you are a missionary person, try reverse missionary, try doggy style. Get a Kama Sutra and try one new position it says every week. I personally prefer the anvil, man is it great form both partners. Throw some porn on. Just do something to break your routine and keep things interesting.There is absolutely nothing wrong with vanilla sex, but it can, and does become boring, and that is when people start looking for something else. Take Maureen’s advice, and add in a couple of my suggestions. Always do something different, never let your sex life become boring.

    How long do you have to hold up to your throat for it to work?

    Its kind of funny that it helps our vocal cords. Maybe using a vibrator that doesnt look like a realistic penis would be easier to get people to use, even though I like the thought of a big hard purple penis near me.

    I’m sorry but if my vocal coach took a vibrator and held it up to my throat I would get the hell out of there and probably call the cops. Sorry but this is just weird. And umm why was this doctor carrying around a vibrator to his tutoring job. That makes me worried.

    I’m a voice teacher who is now enthusiastically incorporating these techniques into the work I do in the studio. They have tremendous potential to facilitate and accelerate progress! You can read the interview I conducted w/ David Ley on my blog at http://www.claudiafriedlander.com/the-liberated-voice/2013/03/david-ley.html – a lot of the information that appears in the news blurbs you’re seeing around the web about this were lifted from my post.
