Whether you're enjoying partnered sex or solo play, no matter your gender, relationship status or age - vibrators are a great way to spice up your sex life and add some extra pleasure to the bedroom.
But as you might imagine, there's a long list of options out there. Don't panic! we're here to give you the 101 in what type of vibrator is right for you, and the basics about how to use them to get the most out of your purchase. Let's get started!
First Things First: Finding the Right Vibrator For You
With dozens of different options available these days there’s something for everyone. The trick is knowing what type works best for your needs and body shape. And trust us, the options are endless! From small bullet vibrators that deliver precise sensations to larger ones with curves specifically designed for G-spot stimulation. You can even get wearable vibrators if you want hands-free pleasure during intercourse!
A good place to start is to identify what type of stimulation you're looking for. These can largely be broken down into four types:
If you're looking for clitoral stimulation then bullet vibes are an excellent choice - they're small yet powerful enough to deliver amazing results without any messiness; perfect if you prefer discreet toys.
If you're looking for G-spot stimulation then rabbit-style "double stimulating" models provide intense internal vibrations for the G-spot combined with external clitoral massage (many come remote controlled which allows you to play around with different settings, speeds, and patterns).
On the other hand, if penis stimulation is what you're looking for, there are also plenty of vibrators on the market such as cock rings, prostate massagers, and even app-controlled vibrating penis masturbators.
Finally, stimulation of the anus can be intensely pleasurable for people of all genders, and there are a number of different options on the market for this. From vibrating butt plugs to strap-ons, you can explore what works best for you and your needs.
Solo Show: Using Vibrators For Solo Sex
Now we’ve gone over finding the right vibrator let’s move on to how they can be used during solo sex sessions.
One great way to start is by getting familiar with its features and sensations first; some enjoy taking things slowly when doing this (use low vibration levels at first gradually increasing intensity if desired) while others enjoy jumping straight into an intense session with high-speed vibrations from the beginning until the end. It all comes down to personal preference in terms of intensity. But remember always use lube whenever possible during solo play – because no matter which type or style of vibrator you're using, it will help you make things feel a hundred times better.
When it comes to women's bodies, many find rubbing the vibrator directly against the clitoris the most effective "trick". However, don't feel like you need to "stick to the rules" here - try exploring other erogenous zones too, including lips labia, etc...
Additionally laying flat on your back while using a vibrator may feel good as this allows you to really let go and concentrate on sensations.
A Party of Two: Using Vibrators During Partner Sex
When incorporating vibrators into partnered sex, we have several tips that can help make the experience more enjoyable for everyone involved.
Firstly, it's important to communicate with each other beforehand - discuss likes/dislikes and agree upon boundaries so everyone feels comfortable at the moment (e.g. do or don't want external stimulation, etc).
Secondly, decide who will be controlling the device during sex; for example, if your partner wants complete control then they should hold onto the vibrator while you focus on experiencing every single sensation that's coming your way. Alternatively, you could take turns being ‘the driver’!
Finally, ensure enough lube is present throughout playtime - not only does this boost sensation but also ensures safety from any potential friction-related injuries.
There’s an option for everyone so take the time to research and figure out which vibrator will work best for you and your needs before settling on a model to buy. And don't forget that communication is key when using sex toys between couples. It's important to always ensure all parties feel comfortable.
Vibrators are a great way to add pleasure to your partnered or solo sex life, no matter what stage of your relationship. And remember, never be afraid to experiment - often what works for one person won't necessarily work for another so it's worth trying out a few models before settling on one that hits the spot!
