I am almost 53 and female who is going through menopause, I am
having issues with my sex drive or libido. My husband recently
purchased me a vibrator to see if that would help. My problem is I have
tried one before and I don't know how to relax and to use my
imagination while using it, also I am nervous or feel a little embarrassed by doing it or even talking about it. How do I overcome
these issues and relax more so that I can make a better loving partner for my husband. I have never been in this type of relationship before.
I feel very inadequite.

Try experimenting with the vibrator by yourself through masturbation.
