    Loved the article. It’s so great you are getting the word out. Just posted an article with my thoughts on the study and the NYTimes piece:

    Wonderful post! I appreciate your careful presentation of our study results, and your sharing what you’ve learned as a result of running MyPleasure.com. The site of stimulation and availability of pulsation vs. vibration are valuable to discuss.

    Regarding the numbers presented in the NYT, their numbers are indeed correct – we ran a few additional analyses (age breakdowns and % of vibrator users who had used them alone vs. with a partner, as opposed to % of all women who had used them alone or with a partner). It was an interesting perpsective which allowed us to gather new insights into the data.

    Thanks again for covering our work in such a smart way!

    I do have lots of Google Alerts :)

    Thanks for clearing that up where the NYT got that number from. Based on the data I saw in the article, it seemed like they had added something wrong. I’ve corrected my article accordingly.
