In brief: Slow down
You might consider applying vaseline to protect the skin or just not go at it so roughly.
Usually decreased lubrication is the problem and a product like astroglide tends to help with that.

In brief: Gentleness & lube
A water based lubricant, a gentle and mindful partner, and "clean toys" all help to protect you.
Washing vibrators after use with a mild soap solution or rubbing alcohol, never inserting a "toy" from the rectum into the vagina without cleaning, and the use of lubricated condoms over vibrators are all helpful.
