Ins and Outs of Vibrators

2013. We’re surrounded by dozens of different vibrators in all shapes and sizes to choose from. For the uninformed, it’s a nightmare.  However, it’s no surprise that this seemingly simple invention used to cure women’s hysteria in the 1800s has managed to become the sex toy of choice for a third of women today.

Amidst the multiple variations, the two common things all vibrators contain…a battery and a motor. It’s also pretty standard to have multiple program options and intensities. Simply perfect for experimenting.


Often mistaken for “massagers” grandma uses to ease those aching backs, the classics are simple, discreet and can be easily purchased in most departmental stores. The most common of which is the Magic Wand made famous by all the AV movies you watched as a kid. Its sole purpose is for clitoral stimulation and because of it’s design the Magic Wand is significantly more powerful than most other vibrators on the market.


Dildo shaped vibrators have dual purposes, they are meant to simulate the actual experience of sex. The phallus-shaped toy is often modeled after the penis with some even molded from actual porn stars with lengths of up to 16” and 7” around. The penis shape allows for vaginal penetration, which the vibration action helps to enhance the sexual pleasure. They can also be used anally although significantly more lubricant is often required


Since Ernst Gräfenberg discovered the G-Spot it’s been the “Holy Grail” of the female orgasm. G-Spot vibrators are dildo shaped vibrators with a specially designed curved shape to stimulate the G-Spot in women and prostate in men. For some women, it’s really the only way they get to cum.


The world renowned Jack Rabbit was popularised by Sex and the City in the 90’s, invented by Ann Summers it became the company’s cash cow for years to come. The rabbit is designed to stimulate both the vagina and clitoris simultaneously. It feature two vibrators one dildo shaped to penetrate the vagina and the second, its namesake is a clitoral stimulator shaped like rabbit ears to target the sweet spot.


Relatively small and unobtrusive, bullets and eggs are the perfect companion to take on the go. Due to its small size, it’s normally minimalist with few added programs and function exactly like the classics. Predominately used for clitoral play there are some larger ones which can also be inserted into most openings.


Needless to say this is the perfect way for any woman to wake up short of having her partner between her legs.  Alarm clock vibes are worn on panties during the night. They are exceptionally thin and shaped to the curves of the female body so you don’t notice it at all. They work great as they’ll wake you up feeling so good that snoozing would become a thing of the past.


The butterfly is a pretty interesting style of vibrator. It’s obviously shaped like a butterfly and is worn like a pair of panties and targets the clitoris. As it’s strapped on, operation is completely hands-free and often it comes with a remote control for added fun.


With the introduction of the Internet, long distance relationships got much shorter and sooner or later, someone would come along to bridge the gap between lovers.  Remote controlled sex toys from firms such as the Vibease and Remote Pleasure have burst onto the market. Partners across the globe can now using smartphone apps can be directing the orgasm distances away.


Previously vibrating cock rings were the only thing couples could use together but the We-Vibe couples’ vibrator changed all that when it was launched. A flexible U-shaped toy worn inside the vagina during sex has not one but two vibrating motors, one for the G-Spot and another for the Clitoris. It’s unique shape and design allows the man to penetrate the woman while she adorns this magnificent piece human ingenuity. The things we think of to have better sex.

In our opinion, all vibrators are really just meant to help us get off. But with so many different styles to choose from, these days we’re really spoilt for choice. Imagine if we only had that one steam powered design.
