  • No, that is a personal item that she would buy herself.

  • I have heard 'experts' speak on both sides of this. One says it eliminates the curiosity of 'how it feels' and thus leaving them more liekly to abstain form sex longer. The other side says it leads to further curiosity... I think it depends on the child. Though I will not buy it. I will mention they exist and how they work.

  • Nope! If she wants one then she would have to buy it herself.

  • No, I can't see myself ever buying my daughter that.

  • I think that would be crossing the boundary line from parent to friend. So I'd say no.

  • That's icky. Plus when I was a teenager, I wasn't concerned with just the mechanics of things. I had a boyfriend who I really loved and could have cared less about a vibrator. Honestly, I probably wouldn't have even known what to do with it. And say you get her one and she really likes it (yuck), then she may want to experience it with a real live boy. I think it's an all around bad idea and a boundary a mother should never cross.

  • I think I would be traumatized for life if my mom gave me a vibrator! I've got no issue with masturbation and I've got no issue with my kids getting their own toys when they are teenagers... I just can't see purchasing it for them!

  • I had one when I was 15. It just pushed me to have real sex since the vibrator was awesome.
