Guide to Ribbed Vibrators

We are always looking for new and interesting experiences and sensations in our lives. Whether that is through thrilling adventures, new tastes and delicacies or testing yourself physically, our continuing need to feel new things can be a powerful motivator. Of course this entirely applies to our bedroom antics as well!

Sex is a perfect way to explore many different, new and exciting sensations. Our bodies are so full of different nerve endings and pleasure zones and we're all unique in how we appreciate and respond to touch and stimulation. This can even change individually­­ depending on the day. Our bodies responses and sensitivities can also become a bit predictable if we don't mix things up once in a while. This is why introducing a sex toy to your sex life can help to keep your sexual spark alive - a sex toy like a ribbed vibrator.

What is a ribbed vibrator?

Ribbed VibratorsA ribbed vibrator is a vibrating sex toy that offers unique and satisfying sexual pleasure. The opposite of smooth vibrators, these toys come with a ribbed shaped shaft that adds extra stimulation and sensations. They are very versatile and easy to use, making them suitable for both men and women. Their shape and design make them perfect for both anal and vaginal penetration.

A ribbed vibrator combines all of the features of our other beloved vibes, including power and variable speeds, but they add something completely new to the menu. Bringing all of these other elements together with strategically ­placed ridges along the shaft of the vibe will surely make a favourable impression. As you slide your ribbed vibe in and out of your vagina or anus, or up and down your clitoris, each rib and bump will stimulate and tease your nerve endings, sending with it a wave of orgasmic pleasure.

These ridges, bumps, swirls and contours, when coupled with vibration, reach to new and exciting pleasure points­­ both internally and externally. That is the great thing about these wonderfully diverse sex toys. They can take you to new heights no matter how you choose to use them.

With vibrator technology constantly improving, many ribbed vibrators offer a variety of interesting speed settings and functions. Some come with a single speed vibration for instant gratification, while others are a bit more elaborate, offering a multitude of tantalising options such as escalation, roller-coaster, pulsation and more. Make sure you try each setting as your body will react differently to each type of buzz.

How do I use a ribbed vibrator?

Ribbed vibrators offer intense pleasure that you're sure to enjoy, no matter if you're using it internally or externally. Their versatility means you can use them in a variety of ways - you're only limited to your imagination.

To get familiar with your ribbed vibe and the stimulation it offers, it might be a good idea to start on your skin or clitoris to test the waters. After applying a generous amount of personal lubricant, turn your vibe on to a low speed setting and caress onto the skin. Bring it closer to your clitoris and tease and tantalise this area, slowly getting closer and closer to this magical pleasure zone. When you're ready, lightly place your vibe onto the tip of the clitoris and gently rub it up and down. You're probably going to feel some kind of pleasure right away, and your instincts will tell you to press harder and faster. Go with the flow! Try all the different speed settings and intimately caress your clitoris, running the ridges and bumps over it as you do so.

Ribbed VibratorsBy now, you're probably going to feel pretty lubricated - both from the lubricant and your natural wetness. Now might be the time to take things a little further. Start by bringing the tip of your ribbed vibrator towards your vaginal opening and slowly insert it, getting deeper and deeper as you enjoy the overwhelming pleasure. You can sift through the different speed settings as you do this and take note of how your body responds to each. As you slide your new found friend deeper inside your love tunnel, the ribs and bumps are going to stimulate your vaginal walls in ways other vibrators can't. It might take a while to get used to this feeling but we're sure you're going to enjoy it. The rest is up to you, do what feels best and don't be afraid to get creative. With the right vibration and stimulation you'll soon find yourself on the verge of orgasm - and beyond.

To take your ribbed vibrator sexy times one step further, you can also try your luck at anal play. Yes, that's right, ribbed vibes make the perfect butt buddy. These toys feel fantastic in the back passage for much the same reasons as they do vaginally. While caressing the walls of your or your partner's ass is awesome, it is the unique pleasure of sliding them in and out of the anus that is mind-blowing! This stimulation, paired with vibration, offers an intriguing and overpowering feeling of sexual pleasure that is sure to tip you over the edge. As with most types of anal play, don't forget the lube!

What size ribbed vibrator is right for me?

Ribbed VibratorsOne of the other great things about ribbed vibrators is that they come in many different sizes and shapes to accommodate everyone's taste. They also vary in the size, type and number of ribs, swirls, nubs and bumps. Some are covered with contours and some feature only a couple. And of course, there's everything in between. Choosing the right size and shape may seem a little intimidating at first, but once you ask yourself some important questions you'll be well on your way to choosing the perfect sized ribbed vibe!

Before choosing the perfect sized vibe for you, it's going to depend on your experience with sex toys and vibrators. If you're new to the joys of vibrator play and are looking for something to get you started, a smaller, slimline ribbed vibe would be the better choice. This way you'll get familiar with the shape, size and sensations of your vibe without being too overwhelmed. And once you've gained some experience and want to take things up a notch, you can purchase a new vibe with a different length or girth.

If you've used a vibrator before and consider yourself a bit of a pro, maybe the smallest size isn't the best for you. It might be time to get a little creative and try new things. Experiment with different sizes, shapes and designs and we guarantee a fulfilling and pleasant time to be had. Good sex is all about trying new things, so don't be afraid to think outside the box. Mixing things up in the bedroom will keep your body wanting more and more!

Three hot spots to use a ribbed vibrator

The great thing about ribbed vibrators is that they can be used in lots of different ways and in lots of different places. Here are three hot spots that your ribbed vibe will love to please!

1. The clitoris

It should go without saying that the clitoris is an ideal hot spot for a ribbed vibrator. However, you can use them in a unique way for hot orgasms. Instead of just focusing on the clit, run the whole of the vibrator's shaft up and down, rubbing all sides of the clitoris. This takes advantage of the contours as they glide over the sensitive nub.

2. The penis

Even though vibrators are often primarily focused towards women, don't forget that they also feel great when pressed up against a penis. You can rub them up and down the shaft in much the same motion as described above for the clit. The ribs and bumps will stimulate his shaft and head in delightful ways. It is best to add some lube here to enhance this experience even further.

3. The feet

Using a ribbed vibrator on someone's feet can be both sexual and relaxing - especially if you have a foot fetish! If your partner is tense and needs to chill, roll the ribbed vibe up and down the soles of their feet to relieve that hard day. This same technique will bring boundless pleasure to those who get off on foot stimulation.
