Dr. Laura Berman Webcast Transcript
Oprah: And your Kegels just go, I can't help you.
Dr. Berman: The Kegels are going we're gone until you kick us back into gear. But they do recover in most cases?
Oprah: So the number one question that you all asked after last week's show was, where do I get the vibrator that Dr. Berman talked about? Dr. Berman, that—I understand that it was called the Aphrodite.
Dr. Berman: That was the Aphrodite.
Dr. Berman: That, Dean, was the—look, Dean's reading our minds.
Dr. Berman: Look at this.
Oprah: And that a year's supply that Amazon.com had—
Dr. Berman: Well, yeah, my manufacturer had a year's supply at Amazon. com and at the other places because they're sold all over the country, sold out in four hours after your show. So—so the Aphrodite right now is on back order but—
Oprah: I'm just looking at that thing. I just wonder is it necessary to be that big?
Dr. Berman: Well, not necessarily. The reason that I like this one for beginners, and this is the one that I recommended for Luanne, is that it's very strong, and I'm going to show you one in a minute that is very strong and much smaller. The down side of this is you wouldn't necessarily use this easily during sex with a partner, you know, it's kind of big and cumbersome.
Dr. Berman: But it's something that kind of feels less threatening to women because it could be a back massager, which some women use it as as well because there's a heated side.
Dr. Berman: It's strong.
Oprah: It really is a back massager.
Dr. Berman: Yeah. And it covers a large surface. So the areas on a woman's vulva that are really sensitive are her clitoris, her periurethra area, the area around the urethra, the inner labia, and this covers a really large part. It's not like a pinpoint. It covers a really large area that's rich in nerve endings so that works—that's why we call it the sure thing. But it's really called the Aphrodite.
Oprah: But now it's sold out.
Dr. Berman: At least for about six weeks to two months. So it is sold out right now, but we're going to show you other ones.
Oprah: So that's sold out, but Dr. Berman brought a variety of vibrators from her own Berman Center Intimate Accessories line—
Dr. Berman: I did.
Oprah: —to show us tonight.
Dr. Berman: Thank you. So—you ready?
Oprah: I am really fine.
Dr. Berman: All right. So this is the one—
Oprah: This is my last night, I've been jet-lagged all week, so—and the inauguration starts, and here I am with—
Dr. Berman: Talking vibrators.
Oprah: Here we go.
Dr. Berman: So this is the Athena that is very strong also and very unthreatening and small, so women—I use this a lot with beginners. I give this to beginning self-stimulators or women who have never had orgasms, and it has all these different attachments you can put on top. It's waterproof.
Oprah: Yeah. I like this because it's like a little perfume spray.
Dr. Berman: Yeah—yeah, it's a cute little thing, and it's very strong and it covers a pretty wide—you know, for a small thing—
Oprah: Hold it up so everybody can see. See, it's like a perfume spray.
Dr. Berman: Yeah, it's a cute little thing.
Oprah: As opposed to carrying that around.
Dr. Berman: That. Well, you're not going to carry this in your purse, no. This—and this is great, too, because you can incorporate it into love making. So if you need—most women who have orgasms during intercourse need clitoral stimulation during intercourse, and this is a great way to get it—
Dr. Berman: —the Athena. Now, for women who want to have a G-spot orgasm—
Oprah: G-spot orgasm. Ooh.
Dr. Berman: A G-spot orgasm. Now this—so if you to have a G-spot orgasm and you've never had one—
Oprah: Which are for fare more intense and powerful.
Dr. Berman: Right. And that you want to—I recommend exploring the G-spot on your own first before you try it during intercourse because it can be, you know, hard to find. You want to experiment. So you can do it manually by yourself or you can use a G-spot stimulator, which is curved. So this is one in my line. I have several of them. But this one is called Paris, and this one vibrates as well, and so you would insert this into the vagina, and this rubs against the G-spot. So when you've hit the G-spot, you'll often feel the urge to urinate and that's because it's so close to the urethra where the urine comes out, so it will—it's stimulating the nerves there, and that's a good sign you're in the right spot. So this is a great way to explore G-spot stimulation. And then if you've already found your G-spot, you're more an advanced G-spot, or you want that blended orgasm, because remember there's three types of orgasm. There's the clitoral ones, which you would get with the Athena, you know, or the Aphrodite. And there's the G-spot ones, which you would get with the—this one. And then there is the Adonis—look at your face.
Oprah: It looks like a cell phone and something combination. Oh my gosh.
Dr. Berman: That's the next thing. You just gave me a great idea.
Dr. Berman: A cell phone that doubles as a vibrator. I'll have to think about that one.
Oprah: It looks like a cell phone.
Dr. Berman: Yeah, it does. This one has like seven different settings. It's a very intense—
Oprah: And how—what is that? I can't even tell which end is in.
Dr. Berman: All right. So I'm going to show you how it works. This is the spot that stimulates the G-spot. This is the vagina. It goes into the vagina.
