Beginner's Guide to Vibrators
People have created some pretty phenomenal things, you know? Airplanes, cars, the Internet, television... and vibrators! While vibrating sex toys may not rank highly on everybody’s list of notable human accomplishments, it is hard to argue with the tremendous influence they have on our lives. Many people have greatly benefited from the additional buzz and whir of our sexy mechanical friends to achieve lovely sexual heights.
Initially conceived to treat hysteria, a supposed mental illness specific to women, vibrators and vibration toys have revolutionized how people have sex. Incorporating these devices into our sex lives have changed relationships and opened people to many new experiences.
As you begin to explore the fun of vibrators, it is key to remember there are many different types. When you think about what you want, there are a number of different factors to consider.
Think about what kind of stimulation you like
The first thing to think about is what kind of stimulation you’re interested in. Do you want external or internal vibrations? Something for your clitoris or possibly your G-spot? Will you be using it alone or with a partner? What level of intensity are you after?
These are all important considerations. Many vibrators are specifically designed for clitoral stimulation, but they can be wonderfully versatile. Women and men can enjoy the wonderful buzz these toys give, in all the right places. Turn up the speed to go for a powerful and intense orgasm. Keep it low for a longer lasting sensation. Any way you do it, vibrators are sure to bring you a lot of pleasure.
There are some practical considerations too. Some people are put off by the sound of some vibrators. If you live in a shared space, you might not want a vibrator that makes a lot of noise. Fortunately, technology is advancing and toys are getting quieter all the time. Also, what type of power source do you think would be best for you? Vibrators come in three basic versions: battery operated, plugin and rechargeable. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Batteries are convenient, but a sad situation if you run out in the middle of a session. Plugged in versions are entirely reliable, but not necessarily convenient if the wall outlet is too far away. And rechargeable vibes are great for the environment but can take hours to repower if you run out of juice half way through your sexy session.

Clitoral Vibrators: There is a common misconception that a woman's sexual pleasure is penetration and vaginal stimulation. In reality, most women cannot orgasm through penetration alone. Instead, clitoral stimulation is key to gratifying sexual fun for many women. And clit fun goes to a whole new level with a clitoral vibrator. Many different models are specially designed with different types of tips to stroke, tease and drive you wild - through your clitoris. A must have!

Bullet Vibrators: Some vibrators can take touch out of the vulva pleasure. But bullet vibrators, given their size and how best to hold them, ensure that you or your partner are more likely to achieve skin-to-skin contact. Plus, these little toys feature extremely powerful motors that can easily please. They are a great vibe to use during all aspects of sex, from foreplay to intercourse.

Egg Vibrators: The great thing about egg vibrators is their versatility. Great to use both internally and externally, these sex toys are smooth and comfortable, while still packing a fantastic vibration kick.

Finger Vibrators: Do you remember the slogan "Let your fingers do the walking?" Well, you can take that sage advice and apply it to your sexy fun.

Use them for a great massage or tease all of your hottest spots - with the touch of a finger.

Big Vibrators: While it may be true that for most people we shouldn't focus on size, the great thing about sex toys is they don't have feelings and can't get upset when you choose a bigger one. And for some people, size really does matter. For those who need a little more to feel full, big vibrators can fulfil your needs. Many big vibrators are realistic looking, but the shape is far less important than the size. Find the big boy you need!

Slim Vibrators: If big isn't your thing, then maybe a more demure vibe is right for you. Slim vibrators pack all the power of other bigger vibrators into a smaller, streamlined package.

Rotating Vibrators: One of the best parts of sex is exploring new sensations that you might not have ever guessed would feel so good! Rotating vibrators offer that kind of thrill. In a way, they can simulate the movement of fingers deep in a vagina, the swirling movement of the head of the toy acting as fingers sometimes do. As the head moves around and around, it comes in contact with the walls, and as they tighten towards orgasm, amazing things happen.
Learn more in our Guide to Rotating Vibrators.
Thrusting Vibrators: Everybody likes different things about sex and different kinds of stimulation. One of the hottest parts of penetrative sex is when the action really picks up with some deep thrusting action.

With the end of the toy thrusting deep inside you and vibrations coursing through you, get ready for amazing orgasms!

Discreet Vibrators: The thing about sex toys is that they look like sex toys. And not everybody wants that! Some people want their toys to not be obvious to the naked eye - just to their naked self! These are the folks discreet vibrators are made for. Available in a variety of non-sexual shapes and sizes, these vibes pack all of the power of other vibrators, but maintain a little decorum on the bedside table.
