  • - Ella didn't tell me what we were

  • talking about today. - Yeah.

  • - What are we talking about today?

  • - I want us to tell the stories of

  • the first time we got vibrators.

  • - What? (laughing nervously)

  • (bright music)

  • (vibrators buzzing)

  • Vibrators are super important and every woman

  • should have one and not feel ashamed,

  • and I felt the shame for a long time.

  • - Oh my god, I hadn't been into a sex store

  • until maybe two years ago.

  • - Yeah when we went to Palm Springs?

  • Was that when it was? - When we went to Palm Springs

  • - Whoa. Spoiler alert.

  • I bought Ella her first vibrator.

  • - She did. (laughs)

  • I feel like sex stores

  • are very intimidating. - Yeah.

  • - I was very naive and kind of prude, and like I had

  • never watched porn really, - Okay.

  • - I'd never even entered the realm of like vibrators,

  • knew nothing about it until I was an adult.

  • - You were the Jon Snow of sex.

  • - Yeah. - You knew nothing.

  • - Yeah. (laughs)

  • - Amazon is probably making it so

  • much easier for people to like - Oh, yes.

  • - you ship it to your school, or to your friend's home,

  • or to your work or something. - Your school.

  • - Probably not to your school.

  • Do you have a very real fear of

  • when you're traveling that your vibrator is gonna

  • go off in your luggage? - Yes.

  • - Or that they're going to stop you?

  • - I'm scared that TSA,

  • it's gonna get flagged - Yeah

  • - in TSA, and they're going to be like, "What's this?"

  • and I'm gonna have to be like, you know what it is.

  • - I have had that thought so many times

  • and then I wouldn't bring my vibrator with me

  • and then I would just be mad, and then finally

  • I had to just be like, you know what?

  • If they ask, then it's yes,

  • it's a vibrator. - It's a fucking vibrator.

  • - But you have to have that in your head, mentally

  • you have a scene where you're like yelling at the TSA

  • with two vibrators, just like yelling.

  • - Well, I looked it up actually and it's not something

  • that they'll flag. - Oh yeah.

  • - So you're fine.

  • - And hack: just take the batteries out before you travel,

  • so that your bag doesn't start vibrating.

  • So I got my first vibrator like most people at a Brookstone,

  • I think, that was a foot massager.

  • You know what I mean? - I used to be that kid

  • that was putting it all over. (laughs)

  • - You're like "Oh, it's for my neck!"

  • - And now I'm like, wow.

  • It's just so funny.

  • - It reminds me of that episode of Sex and the City

  • where she tries to return the vibrator and they're like,

  • "What was wrong with it?"

  • And she's like, "It didn't get me off."

  • And they're like, "It's a foot massager."

  • And she's like, "Well, this foot massager

  • "didn't get me off." (both laughing)

  • - It's weird now 'cause we talk about it all the time

  • and our friends, our group chat is constantly

  • giving each other recommendations.

  • - Like this one's really good,

  • you should get that one. - I need to now get into the

  • phase where I have multiple vibrators.

  • - Yeah, I just did that.

  • - Did you? - Yeah.

  • - Okay, so wait, tell the story of your first vibrator.

  • - First vibrator.

  • We were all hanging out--

  • - How old were you?

  • I was like...

  • 18 or 19.

  • - No, it was whenever we went to Palm Springs.

  • - So you were like 25.

  • - Yeah, I was like 25. (laughs)

  • - Too long!

  • - Yeah. And I just--

  • - You just weren't getting off?

  • - No. - Oh my god.

  • - I don't think I actually had like...

  • - An orgasm? - Yeah.

  • - Oh, that is so... - Yeah.

  • - It's like we're living - Maybe I had like,

  • - in the '50s. - two.

  • - Yeah.

  • It's hard to orgasm just through normal like P and V sex.

  • People don't talk about female orgasm.

  • - No. - They just don't,

  • and it's assumed that when you're having sex with a guy,

  • the guy always finishes, - Yeah.

  • - Or for the most time and that's when it's over.

  • And so if you don't have a partner who is

  • also encouraging you and knows what you need,

  • then you could be 25. - Yeah

  • - and not really, you weren't sure right?

  • - I didn't know. - You had no orgasm?

  • - Yeah I was like, I had think so

  • and I definitely had had, like, one or two.

  • - And we were like you would know

  • - You would know, and I was like, what?

  • - Everyone was like, "We get off, like, every day."

  • - And I was like, what?

  • And they're like "We're going to the

  • "sex store right now, we're finding you one."

  • - In Palm Springs - And I was like, no!

  • And I was so embarrassed but all of my friends were like

  • "No, this has to change" - Then finally I just

  • bought one for Ella. - Yeah, I couldn't do it,

  • I was too embarrassed in the store to even buy it.

  • - I was like this is good, wasn't it just like a little one?

  • - The tiniest little... - Yeah.

  • 'Cause I was like, sometimes honestly it's

  • (censor beeping) intimidating to go into a sex store,

  • and it's just a giant, like, dildo vibrator.

  • - Oh my god, yeah. - And whether or not,

  • it's hilarious to me 'cause they're all pink and purple

  • or something, - Yeah.

  • - I want a cool space design or something, but it is really

  • (sighs) intimidating, so we got you

  • just the smallest one. - The small one,

  • and then I was like, okay, wow.

  • I didn't know this.

  • (laughs) - I can't believe...

  • So now I'm comfortable talking about it.

  • And I just want other women

  • to not be embarrassed about it and be like, you know what?

  • Even if you're having sex with a guy,

  • - Have a vibrator. - you should have a vibrator,

  • like you shouldn't just...

  • - It's also for your own pleasure,

  • - Yeah. - it doesn't have to be

  • at the same time.

  • Honestly it's just relaxing. (laughs)

  • - Knowing what you like. - If you want to go to sleep.

  • Yeah. (laughs)

  • - Knowing what you like is important too,

  • and being able to tell people.

  • - So now have you kind of graduated into--

  • I'm still, I will admit I'm still kind of afraid

  • of just sex stores at large.

  • - Okay, I've 360 - Really?

  • You're the guru now?

  • - I wouldn't say guru but I've been now, like,

  • three or four times - Wow.

  • - to a sex store.

  • You know what?

  • It's actually kind of fun.

  • It's like, ooo, what is this thing?

  • (whip slashes) - You've got to go to a good.

  • Honestly, I think the people who work there

  • are professionals too.

  • You can look up and see on Yelp where their reviews,

  • if it's a generally female friendly store

  • or if it's sex positive.

  • So yeah, I definitely have a secret vibrator

  • that I felt really bad and guilty about,

  • and I didn't talk to any of my friends about it.

  • - Oh yeah, no no no, me neither, not until I was an adult.

  • - Like, two years - Yeah, literally.

  • - I started talking to my friends about it.

  • - It was very, we all, I think,

  • one day were like, "So do you have a vibrator or what?"

  • You know.

  • - This is great, I was - Yeah.

  • - a little afraid at first, - No.

  • - but it's just a conversation - It's just a conversation so,

  • you know, talk with your friends about it,

  • or talk with your internet friends below

  • and let us know what you think.

  • - Yeah, if you're too afraid to talk to your friends,

  • just comment below.

  • (playful music)

- Ella didn't tell me what we were
