Different types of clitoral vibrators

Here we will discuss all of the different types of vibrators that are available to you and why you should consider what each and every one has to you offer you.

Fixed versus Non Fixed Vibrators

A fixed vibrator is simply a stimulator that is fixed in its position and used hands free. Classic vibrating panty are very popular. This ingenious device is usually made out of the normal fabrics used in creating female lingerie, such as nylon, cotton, mesh, lace, leather, and latex. The material is typically stretchable to fit any size and be comfortable for wearing for long periods of fun.A vibrating bullet or some other shaped stimulators are located against the clitoris and labia. The panties are intended to keep the vibrator in place while running and for wearing it comfortably under your clothes for the more adventurous orgasm aficionado.

There are several different versions of vibrating panties, including remote controlled models, Crotches models to be used in conjunction with the vaginal insertion of your choice, and models that come with removable bullets. These removable bullets bring us to our next category: non fixed vibrators.

Non fixed vibrators are simply vibrators that are meant to be held in the hand or hands and moved around. While the fixed vibrator excels at being discreet, Non-fixed vibrators give you the freedom to adjust the pressure against your clitoris, as well as its position. They also come with the added benefit of being slid or rolled against your intimate area during play.

Material

Something that is very important and should be at the forefront of your mind when choosing a vibrator is the material that it is made from. This is what it’s going to feel like in contact with your skin and has the potential to turn your orgasm from an “o” into an “OH GOD!”

Jelly vibrators offer a very smooth and plush feeling. Due to its makeup, this material can come in any shape that the manufacturer can dream up. It’s flexible and very smooth to the touch. Since the material is versatile, designers often add lots and lots of different extras and attachment to jelly vibrators. The so called jelly is, in reality, a type of rubber. Aside from all of their benefits, they should be washed by hands each time you use them. Therefore, in case you are the type to fall asleep right after your coital bliss, then that is definitely something to consider. Disinfecting them is also off the table.

Latex, which is the same stuff that makes up condoms, can also be used to construct your orgasm machine. This stuff holds a firm shape, but is nowhere near the stiffness that plastic offers. The drawback, which you’ve probably experienced if you’ve ever used a condom during sex, but weren’t quite lubricated well enough, is that the material has a tendency to cause friction against your naughty parts. The obvious solution is simply to keep a generous portion lubricant at your fingertips, so that’s definitely something to consider when you’re considering. The other drawback is that some people have an unfortunate allergy to the material. You'll want to make sure that you're one of the lucky ones before you buy.

Plastic is the most popular material both in the market and the world itself, which is commonly used in clitoral vibrators. It is cheap and easily maintained. It can take on any form and comes with a very smooth surface. It is easy to use against the clitoris to create delicious stimulation. When used, plastic warms up quickly, which is a godsend unless you like to fantasize about Eskimos and Yetis. On the flip side, the material doesn’t like to flex, which can be an instant turn-off. They are very good for direct stimulation of the clitoris, and they’re very durable, but they feel like plastic vibrators. Again, this may be a good thing, depending on your proclivities. This is a judgement free zone.

It is also recommended for you to give a closer look to silicon. It is hypoallergenic and very easy to clean. Best of all for the for the more sexually charged woman, they can take a lot of usage and abuse and never lose their shape, which is ideal for when you get hot and heavy with yourself. These silicone vibrators are a little more expensive, but feel soft to the touch, which can be very appealing.

Possibly the most enticing and most recent inductees into the self-love market, together with the most realistically feeling vibrators, are going to be made out of cyberskin. The top selling point is that these guys feel like real skin, especially once it gets nice and warmed up (again, if you're fantasizing about Eskimos, you can give it a few minutes in the freezer for that authentic, chilly feel). However, you need special cleaning agents to keep the material plush and soft, and they won’t last as long as silicone models, but it does feel amazing.

Form

The shape of clitoral vibrators is as varied as your fantasies. If you have something in mind, then chances are that with a little time spent browsing the web, you’ll be able to find it.

Form always depends on your private wish. Do not be scared of trying different things before settling on your favorite for any given circumstance. The only problem to having a drawer full of different vibrators is remembering to change the batteries.

Vibrators such as the “Womanizer” are on the cutting edge of masturbation. These slick little devils offer sucking action aimed directly on your clitoris. It also pulses and comes equipped with eight different intensities and speeds.

Another, such as the “Jelly Gems Bullet”, is a vibrating bullet that is encased in the jelly material from earlier. Vibrator ends with two little bunny ears which flutter and vibrate against your clitoris to an astounding effect. This design is becoming increasingly common, and for good reason: it feels amazing.

The famed finger vibrators are what many women take on the road for lonely nights or boring flights. These shapes are simple and easy to use. The ring shape fits right over your finger and you hold it against yourself while it vibrates you to happiness. It’s that simple. Just think of the possibilities!

On the opposite end of the spectrum, you’ll find the beefy and not at all discreet massage wand. These monstrosities are huge and must be plugged into an outlet for power. They are bulky, loud, and will transport you to an alternate dimension of sexual bliss. Known as “Cadillac of vibrators”, it uses a lot of power that gets transferred to its vibrating head which can cover not only your clitoris, but your entire outer vagina. It should also be noted that there are many, many attachments made for these vibrators, bring hundreds of different sensations, so they can definitely be worth the investment.

Surface

The vibrator surface can be just as varied as the form and is applied for astounding effect. Once again, your preferences are very important, but you can never have too many options at your disposal. What feels good on Monday may not be enough to satisfy you on Tuesday but feel like too much on Wednesday. Let’s just hope your finding time to water the plants with all of your newfound special alone time.

The most typical surface that you’ll come across (hehe) is simply smooth. No matter which material the vibrator is made from, almost all will have a smooth variation. This is a minimalist approach that lets the vibrations do most of the work for you.

The toothbrush surface is so called for its resemblance to the thing that you use to clean your teeth. It usually has angled peaks or ridges in it to give you a different experience every time you move it around your clitoris.

The rough surfaced vibrators are the go to best friends of women who want a little accent to their private time. These surfaces are covered in hundreds of little bumps that come in a variety of sizes and density. Many of them are designed and marketed to feel just like another person’s tongue, which obviously speaks volumes about its value and potential place in your closest drawer.

Noise Level

Common concerns that most women have when searching for a vibrator is the noise level. Depending on your intended usage or living arrangement, shopping for a vibrator only to get it home and find out that it’s louder than a jackhammer can be a big problem.

Luckily, there are ways to figure out if the noise level is right for you beforehand. Many online retailers rate their vibrators by the noise that they create. Each product is typically given a number between one and five in order to have a better understanding of the item before the purchase. For example, when you are looking for a new vibrator to keep in your office for the occasional restroom quickie during downtime, then you’re not going to want something with a solid five rating. If, however, the vibrator is going to live alone with you in the bedroom of your one room apartment, then a one may be underpowered and underwhelming.

These rating systems, however, are completely arbitrary and created by the retailer. In order to understand what a number actually means, you are going to have to try them for yourself or hope that you can rely on customer feedback.

When personal shopping is your thing, then you can simply ask your local orgasm machine purveyor to test out the vibrator in store before you buy. Most places will let you do this since you cannot return a vibrator once it’s left the premises for obvious reasons.

Your third and possibly best option is a simple Youtube search. Not only can you find reviews for any vibrator you may be considering, but many people compare the noise levels of different vibrators right in front of your eyes.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics is defined as fitting a job to a personby OS and HA, and nowhere does that ring works better than your personal hand jobs. The ergonomic fit of your vibrator into your hand is of the utmost importance and should not be taken lightly. When you’re on your back, trying to have a relaxing evening alone, or if your partner is doing all of the relaxing to you, then you don’t want to ruin the mood with a cramped wrist at the most inopportune of times.

Many vibrator models are molded to fit comfortably into the hand and come with a slight curve to them to take as much work away from your muscles as possible. This can be especially important if you’re the type of woman who takes a little warming up before the main event.

However, as it was stated above, it is upto your preference. If you can get in and out before your favorite show comes back from commercial break, then heft and shape won’t make that much difference to you, although it is something to consider.

Controls

So, now the question becomes one of control and how you would like to wield your power over your orgasms. There are two ways to control the speed, power, and frequency of any vibrator and those are simply manual and hands free.

A manual vibrator will have to be turned on and off and adjusted through a control on the device itself. This can mean pressing buttons with a finger from the hand that is holding it, or it could come with a small knob or dial.

A hands free vibrator will come with a wireless controller that can be operated with your free hand, or by your partner. These can be extremely discreet and provide a lot of naughty fun.

There are also wired version of these controllers, which are connected to the vibrator through a thin cable. Although not as discreet, you’ll never have to worry about losing the only controller that you have to you wonderful new toy.

With your chosen type of controller in hand, you should also make sure that it can actually control what you want it to control. Every vibrator will have and on and off function, but there are many combinations of controls to consider.

The most common function after power that you’ll find is speed. Speed is the intensity of the vibrations coming from your little friend and making you go wild. Every single woman on the planet likes her own speed, so this function should be considered a must.

The other function is one that controls the type of vibration that it puts out. There are endless variations on vibration patterns out there. Some vibrators are even capable of being synched up with a music device to turn your favorite songs into your favorite orgasms. Having a vibrator with a good selection of vibrations can be perfect for the right kind of woman.

Batteries vs Charging

Whether a battery operated product is better, or one that can be charged over time, is something that will be debated until the end of time. Each one has its advantage and disadvantages. For instance, an item operating from the battery power may seem like it costs more money, simply for the price of replacing them, having something that sill run when you want it to is sometimes worth the expense. Not only can batteries be bought in bulk for less money, but if you’re crawling into bed thinking of talking to your secret crush and admiring the way his or her body looks in their brand new, skin tight, mostly see through outfit, then you want your vibrator to turn on and you want it to turn on immediately. This is where batteries are worth their weight in gold, because if you flip it to maximum and don’t hear that wonderful “whirr”, then you can simply swap them out and get back to the task at hand. If you happen to be relying on a charging vibrator that simply had no charge, you might find yourself running to the local laundromat with a handful of quarters and a craving for the spin cycle.

If, however, you don’t frequent the halls of sexual bliss all that often, then an item working from the battery power may be a waste of money. If you know that there will be enough time between your sessions to charge your little lover, then you’ll have plenty of extra cash to spend on accessories.

Conclusion

Well, now we know everything that we need to know about vibrators and can confidently head forward into our new lives as members of the “always smiling for no reason” club. Some things to remember while you search out your new obsession are quality, material, and purpose.

The lubes are made from petroleum which will eat right through the material and end your relationship with the toy very quickly.

It is recommended for you to keep in mind,whether you are searching something that can travel with you when you’re on the road or if you can splurge on an impressive vibrator that will stay in your favorite private time spot. Things such as noise, weight and size have huge effects on your usage of the toys, so you want one that fits with your needs.

You should also ask yourself if this toy is meant for your private masturbatory getaways or with a partner. If you ask a lover to use a toy on you that is designed to be used solo, then you could both be in for a very uncomfortable evening.

Finally, keep yourself in mind. The fanciest, most expensive toy in world could do absolutely nothing for you if it doesn’t fit your own sensitivity level. Be sure to find out where your comfort level is and find a vibrator that matches it. There’s no sense trying to tune yourself to what you have when you can just as easily try new things and find something that fits you like you deserve.
