​How to select the best Vibrator for you

Posted on

We’ve come a long way, baby. Did you know that vibrators have been around for several hundred years? The origin of the device is remarkable because it was primarily invented for – and used by – physicians who were curing women of ‘hysteria.’ Yes, women were diagnosed as being hysterical when they complained of aches, pains, increased libido, feeling wet between the legs and a host of other illness which we now consider being just plain horny.

Remember, 200 years ago women didn’t have sex drives or orgasms. They just provided the receptacles for men’s semen just to produce progeny. Don’t laugh. At one time everyone believed the world was flat. The notion that women are inanimate beings without sex drive and sensuality is almost archaic.

Back to the physicians: there were a lot of snake oil salesmen back in those days. They used leeches for bleeding the viruses and bacteria from patients. But some horny dude discovered – probably by error – that if he greased his hand and used his fingers inside of a women while plying his palm to her clitoris she would have a small seizure and would be cured of her ills – temporarily. Women paid good money for the treatment and the doctors got rich. There was a lot of repeat business and it was all supposedly on the up and up.

Then the doctors developed a problem. Maybe today it would be called the precursor of carpet tunnel syndrome. Their hands and fingers hurt so badly they could not cure their female patients. Then ingenuity came to the forefront and many patents were given to all sorts of strange electrical devices. Then batteries came into being and replaced electricity.

The original vibrators were sold as ‘personal massagers.’ Most people knew the true purpose. They were even sold in the Sears Roebuck Catalog. If Sears sold them, it must be okay. However, the purity movement took over and any type of masturbation was seen as sinful and dirty. Mothers checked their sons’ palms to ensure that no hair was growing there.

We are now in the Age of Enlightenment as far as sex and sexuality go. According to psychologists nearly one third of all American women have a vibrator. One would think that number is a little on the shy side because certainly there were plenty of women who would not admit the fact. Some women own two or more.

This should not be surprising. Unfortunately the ‘uneducated’ man does not realize that only a small amount of women have an orgasm from penile penetration only. Many have wives who are good actresses and other men feel they are inept. This is simply not the case. According to a 2013 article in Psychology Today, “Clitoral stimulation with vibrators produces orgasms reliably even in women who have difficulty experiencing them in other ways. And women who use vibrators consistently report sexual enhancement in both solo and partner sex.”

Know your options

You may or may not know that male condoms are now made in four different materials and a jillion sizes, shapes, textures and costs. Well, maybe a zillion is stretching it a bit. But women have more selections in vibrators than men have in condoms. If you get bored one day you can look at all websites and count for yourself.

In this article many options will be broken down for you. It is your decision as to the exact purpose of your vibrator. Everyone knows what the end result should be – but how you personally want to achieve your orgasm is your choice. You will need to key into your likes and dislikes, what you want the material to be, do you want it to be manipulated by hand or by remote control, etc., etc., etc.

Let’s get started. The main types of vibrators are:

Clitoral vibrator: It concentrates on this clitoris only. Generally, these are rounded like the palm of a hand.

Vaginal vibrator: This model is used internally. However, some women do use them occasionally for clitoral stimulation. These are typically cylindrically shaped.

G-Spot vibrator: Yes, ladies, it is not a myth and if you have never had a G-spot orgasm, to say you are in for a real treat is an understatement. These vibrators will always have an upward curve and a bulbous head.G-spot stimulation is associated with female ejaculation or squirting.

Dual action vibrator: These can be divided into two separate but equal categories. One is like the popular rabbit which has a phallus for vaginal insertion while it has rabbit ears you place on your clitoris for dual stimulation. Then there is the dual action vibrator that a woman can use vaginally and anally, simulating sex with two male partners.

Before the material is discussed there is a lesson on phthalates. This is a substance that makes plastic and jelly vibrators softer. You will often see claims that toys are phthalate-free. In actual research there are very few studies that link phthalates to bodily harm. There was evidence that phthalates could hurt the male reproductive organs. When rats were exposed to very high amounts, they developed a great deal of problems with their liver, lungs and just about every other internal organ.

Then several years later it was discovered that phthalates were used in babies’ teething rings and consumer groups insisted they be removed. However, there was no report of organ damage. You will see that most new toys will be phthalate-free. There is a proverb that says an ounce of caution is worth a pound of cure.

You will see a great deal of jelly-type toys. These are much harder to clean than smooth plastic. The jelly is a porous material and bacteria have plenty of places to hide. You could wear a condom with yours (condoms cannot be re-used) or ensure you have a toy cleaner that will destroy all bacteria.

Other materials that are easier to clean and maintain are silicone and metal.

More Options

If you are a novice, want something that travels well or want something truly discreet select a bullet vibrator. Bullets are usually hard-shelled (either plastic or aluminum) or covered with a soft rubber or jelly coating. Most will operate at different speeds. They are so small they can be inserted even during sex and some men love the sensation of the vibrations when they are held against his scrotum during foreplay.

Your everyday vibrator will have different speeds that are controlled by twisting a cap at the base. You control the thrust and where you want the vibrations. You can purchase one of these fairly reasonably and they are available in lengths from four to eight inches. While these vibrators come in rubber, silicone and metal, experts say you can feel the vibrations more in a plastic version.

Phallus vibrators look like the real thing. Some women do not want to insert a rocket-looking piece of plastic inside them and prefer a soft-feeling but hard jelly penis. These will have different vibrations and operated via twisting the knob at the base – and you can generally pick your favorite color. They, too, come in various sizes as well as thicknesses.

How high-tech do you want your vibrator? Do you want it to run on batteries, can be plugged in or can be recharged? If you want to use your vibrator anywhere around water, you definitely do not want on that has to be plugged in. You also have to be close to the plug when you use it. Battery supplied vibrators tend to be the less expensive. The rechargeable ones can cost more but you will not have to stop your action to run out and buy more batteries.

If you and your partner are simpatico, you may want to consider a remote control vibrator. Generally, these are balls or eggs. The4y get inserted into the vagina and your partner can control the vibrations and your pleasure.

Best Selling Vibrators

Like condoms, there is a reason why a vibrator is a best seller. It has been purchased by a large quantity of women and has received four to five star reviews from verified purchasers. The vibrator is a good value and does exactly what it says it will do. You can count on it.

Shibari Mini Halo 20x, Multi-speed Magic Wand, Wireless, Power Wand Massager

Wand vibrators were the first real vibrator advertised and today is still the number one seller. This may be because it does have multiple uses. You can use it on sore muscles or on underused clitorises. With its 20x pulsations, it will help you relax in no time. This wand is USB rechargeable and 100% water resistant. This does not mean it is waterproof. It cannot be submerged in water. With over 1,000 sold on Amazon in the U.S., it is one of the true best sellers.

Magic Wand with Free Premium Wand Essentials Speed Controller

This is another wand that has been sold close to 1,000 times and is a favorite with ladies who like their hands free for other occupations. The wand controller is an extremely helpful tool for those with the need for adjustable speed. Simply plug the box into the wall, plug the wand into the box, and adjust the dial according to your desires. This premium controller offers 6 feet of cord for additional mobility, quality long lasting components, custom dials and a wide speed band.

We-Vibe Tango Bullet

This bullet vibrator looks like a innocuous tube of lipstick. The tip of the lipstick vibrator features a narrow edge that focuses vibrations anywhere you want them. The small size and discreet design make the We-Vibe Tango a great travel vibrator. You can easily fit it in your purse or suitcase wherever you go. The strong vibrator features 8 different settings – including 4 speeds and 4 pulsating patterns. To maintain its reputation for discreetness, the We-Vibe Tango’s motor is virtually silent.

Thrusting Jack Rabbit Vibrator

This bunny rates a firm five stars for good reason. The head of the vibrator thrusts in and out, just like your partner. There are beads in the middle of the shaft which rotate for more stimulation. It has seven vibrating patterns and six rotation/thrusting speeds. It is made of rubber and is waterproof so you can use it in your hot tub, bath or shower. The rabbit ears for your clitoris operate indecently. This vibrator is not inexpensive but it doesn’t reach the clouds, either. It is a great investment and runs on batteries.

ORA by Lelo

This was brought forward by Shape Magazine. It is expensive but depending on your tastes, may well be worth the extra money. “With 10 adjustable stimulation modes at your fingertips, this hand-held vibrator imitates the sensation of oral sex with swirling strokes and fast flicks.

Lady Bi

Lady Bi is for size lovers who crave dual stimulation from a powerful rabbit-style vibrator. Two motors send deep, rumbly vibrations through both parts of this vibe: the long silicone shaft feels great when used vaginally or anally, while the flexible arm delivers strong vibrations to the clitoris.
