Or, maybe we can help "refresh" your memory about all of the options available. Either way, we'd like to make choosing a vibrator as stress-free as possible.
What to watch out for?
There are a lot of vibrators that are made as a novelty and break easily so it is important to choose wisely, selecting from a reputable store with high quality products like ours.
Battery tip - Vibrators that use batteries often suggest taking the batteries out in between use… this is a good tip as it helps prolong the life of the vibrator and prevents the batteries from leaking causing damage to your vibrator.
What pleasures you?
There is nothing quite like the humming of a vibrator between your legs… but there are some questions you may want to ask yourself before choosing one. Do you want one that allows you to be hands free, vary the speed and intensity, with or without a remote control, small or large, and/or have one attach to a partner to pleasure you? Below you will find a review of some of the basic features of vibrators that will help you better answer these questions and get you on your way to experiencing erotic vibrations!
G – Spot Vibrators
G-spot vibrators are not only great for g-spot stimulation but for prostate stimulation as well. They are usually long and slim with a curved tip and make access to the g-spot and prostate easy. Many know that finger play can get tiring and these vibrating stimulators are pleasureful for a partner or solo experience. This is a basic sex toy that everyone should have!
Any woman who has tried a vibrator on her clit will tell you that it is heaven. Some women favour stimulation to one side, while others like direct contact. Nonetheless, it is a sure winner in the pleasure department. Also it brings a women to climax much more quickly and allows her g-spot and vaginal walls to become more sensitive when used prior to penetration from her lover or a toy. Of course you can always combine your pleasure by getting vibrators that multitask… like the rabbit vibrator for more intensity.
One of the more popular clitoral vibrators is the bullet, which is usually 2-4 inches in length. These egg-shaped wonders can ignite the clitoris, labia, anus, nipples and head of a penis like a charm. Other lucky body parts can also benefit from these little hummers. Most often these pleasure eggs are attached to a multiple speed battery pack connected by a long cord.
These can take the form of a ring that encircles the base of a male's penis allowing him to experience vibrating ecstasy. Others like this have an additional attachment that allows a male to stimulate his female partner's clit with a vibrator as well. For the adventurous male who knows how good prostate stimulation feels there are the vibrating dildos and slim models. All in all a lot to choose from for the man who wants it all.
A lot more people enjoy anal play than you may think. While anal play is still something that some people may be wary about, many are enjoying this pleasure zone and loving every minute of it. If you haven't yet tried anal play, but are curious about what it feels like, you might consider trying an anal toy like a vibrator. It's a good way to find out if you like anal stimulation, without having to worry about being embarrassed. For simple "rim" stimulation a bullet or slim vibrator is simply heaven. For penetration, a Neo - Skin, or g-spot vibrator is a great way to go.
These are vibrating clamps that squeeze and stimulate the nipples. Some have adjustable settings so the pressure can be customized or varied as well as the speed of the vibrations. Nipple clamps can also be used on other areas of the body, such as the labia lips, ball sack, ear lobes... well you get the idea. It's a good idea to test the clamps on the skin of the inner wrist or the webbing between the thumb and forefinger, to get an accurate "reading" of the level of intensity. If it's bearable and tolerable within that threshold of pain/pleasure, they should be fine for the nipples or labia or balls!
Basic "On-Off" Controller
This is one of the most basic of controls on a vibrator and is simply an "on-off" control found on the base or hand control of a vibrator. While this simplicity allows a user to not have to think about anything more than turning their vibrator on, it may not be the ideal choice for someone who wants to adjust the speed to find just the right stimulation for them or to vary the intensity during use.
Multiple Speed Controller
This type of vibrator such as the Good Vibrations G-Twist allows you to adjust the level of speed to adjust the intensity. Some people prefer the more subtle vibrations while others want pure power to get them going, thus having the ability to customize the level of intensity is a nice feature. Another advantage is being able to start out slow and advance into more intense stimulation as you or your partner become more aroused.
Multiple Function Controller
There are many types of vibrators and some have multiple features. For example you might find something like the Jessica Rabbit or Silent Spur that acts as a rotating dildo with the ears lined curved to stimulate the clitoris. Most people multi-task in their work all day… why not do it when you are ready to have some fun too!
The hand-held control connects to the vibrator by a wire which allows one to adjust the speed without moving the vibrator away from the sweet spot that is being happily stimulated. These are very common on bulletvibrators and many people like them because they are small and discreet. The one main drawback to the handheld is that it is not recommended for water use and the cord can sometimes get in the way when a partner is involved.
The remote control vibrator is great for partner play as well as solo. Imagine you have your sweetie on a wireless remote totally at your command to experience pleasure and increase it at the right moment while you move around the room. Whether you are stimulating the clitoris, anus or other lucky body part… this is a wild ride in the technologically advanced world of vibrators.
A drawback to using a vibrator discreetly is that they hum and sometimes loudly! Usually this is not a dilemma, but you may feel a bit self conscious about using it. There are vibrators that are quieter than others, and doing things like having music on or using them under the sheets does help drown out the noise. Bottom line, all vibrators make a certain amount of noise but a good rule of thumb is that a plastic vibrator will tend to be noticeably louder noise than a latex vibrator.
Examples Of Vibrator Types-
Based on a 1,000 year old Asian sex toy, they are usually a pair of hollow balls and have something inside that rolls around inside them, creating vibration and stimulation to the g-spot or prostate. However, they are now available with vibrating motors in them for an even more intense stimulation. Women have also used them to strengthen their vaginal muscles which enhances a woman's pleasure for stronger contractions during an orgasm and man's pleasure when his penis is gripped harder during sex.
Usually 2-4 inches these egg-shaped wonders can ignite the clitoris, labia, anus, nipples and head of a penis like a charm. Other lucky body parts can also benefit from these little hummers. Most often these charmers are attached to a multiple speed battery pack connected by a long cord.
Vibrating cock rings are unique sex toys in the sense that they essentially act as blood flow "restrictors". They are worn at the base of the penis and are designed to heighten and prolong an erection, as well as intensify orgasms.
These are newer to the vibrator family. They usually come in the form of a glove and fit on two to three fingers allowing the vibration to come through the padding on your fingers as you manually stimulate. Those that have tired it for all over body stimulation including the traditional sweet spots of the clitoris, anus, nipples, etc. have given it rave reviews. Additionally you can get vibrators that secure to the finger. We recommend the Dinky Rabbit or the Pleasureme.
Strap-on vibrators vary. We supply several Tantus dildos that have flared base and a removable vibe that can be used with a harness to create a strap-on vibrator. Strap-ons are great for allowing one to be spontaneous in their movement while getting and/or giving pleasure to their lover.
These vibrators are not only portable and versatile they can be used in the bath, shower, pool, ocean…. well you get the picture, they can get wet! Covered with waterproof material these vibrators make ripples of fun.
Remember……….. once you've whittled the choices down to two or three contenders, using all available information, it is then the time to cast rational thinking aside and pick the one that tickles that sexy part of your imagination. It may be the prettiest one, the kinkiest one, or the most comforting and familiar one. Desire and aesthetic are deeply personal and entwined; pick the vibrator or vibrators that speak to you.
