NYTimes Blesses Vibrators; Meta Rejects Them. – Dr. Marty Klein

Vibrators—available in the American colonies by the 1750s, and America’s first personal-care electrical appliance in 1899—now have the blessing of the New York Times.

Their Wirecutter feature, which for years has evaluated consumer products ranging from earbuds to toddler highchairs to boxed chocolates, this month researched and recommended vibrators.

In the real world, this isn’t such a radical step: Over half of American women use a vibrator, and 76 million Americans own one.

But Meta (Facebook) won’t accept ads for them. They’ll take ads for products that treat erection or ejaculation problems. Their new policy allows some ads for birth control, menopause products, and the relief of painful sex—ads that “promote sexual and reproductive health or wellness, as long as the focus is on health and not sexual pleasure.”
