Why Buy a Vibrator?

A vibrator is a powerful tool—pun intended. Millions of women masturbate manually, but nothing beats a vibrator-induced orgasm. Sex toy technology has made major leaps in the last couple of decades, going from clumsy “personal massagers” to sleek, versatile devices with amazing functions and amazing pleasure-inducing capacity. Why buy a vibrator? Because you want to get more out of getting off.

Why Buy a Vibrator?

Here are some questions every woman should ask herself when she is ready to purchase a vibrator:

• Which type of vibrator is correct for me?

This depends on your preferences. If you love vaginal penetration, opt for a classic vibrator, which is normally shaped like a penis. If you prefer strictly clit stimulation, buy sex toys like a butterfly, egg, mini, or fingertip model. If you are into anal play, there are lots of vibrators with anal stimulators, as well as vibrating butt plugs and probes.

• What is my G-spot, where is it located, and how to I stimulate it?

Your G-spot is basically the same as the male prostate gland. Both produce deep, intense orgasms through direct stimulation. In women, G-spot stimulation can even bring on ejaculation of a fluid that is very similar to seminal fluid, minus the sperm, of course! The G-spot is located on the external wall of your vagina, around the area of the top of the pubic bone (where your pubic hair begins). It is a small, slightly raised area that has a spongy texture that is very different than the rest of the vaginal wall. To find it, reach up inside yourself with your index or pointer finger. Turn it so the outside of your hand faces more away from you, and make a “come here” gesture with your finger. You will feel it begin to engorge with blood after a few moments, like your clit engorges when you get horny. G-spot orgasms can be manually induced, but the best and most powerful G-spot orgasms come by using a vibrator. But a vibrator that is made especially for this kind of stimulation, with a characteristic curve of the shaft toward the top. Be prepared to come like you never have before!

• What size of vibrator is right for me?

Make a vibrator purchase that is comfortable. If you know that you are not built to take on well-hung men (you experience some pain during deep penetration as the head of their penis hits your cervix at the top of the vaginal canal), choose a smaller model. What usually makes the biggest difference in a penetrative vibrator is the girth, or size around the base. This is because most of the nerve endings in your pussy are found in that lower area. If penetration isn’t that important during masturbation, buy a vibrator that is dedicated to your clit alone, and these can be quite small.

• Can I use a vibrator on my clit and/or ass with a vibrator during intercourse?

Absolutely. There are many vibrators with several stimulating appendages. Rabbit and dolphin vibrators are made for this purpose, so buy a vibrator that is made specifically for stimulating these areas

• What type of material should I choose in a vibrator?

This is another personal preference issue. Many ladies like a “real” feeling texture, so Cyber Skin and silicone are good choices. If you like a slick, smooth surface, choose plastic, metal, or hard natural rubber vibrator.

• Are they waterproof, so I can use them in a pool, Jacuzzi, or in the bath?

Some are, but always check the packaging to determine if they are truly waterproof. Battery-operated vibrators that are waterproof will say so prominently, and they won’t have cords or a battery compartment that has discernible edges. Buy vibrators specially designed for water play. There are lots out there, with features like variable speeds and intensities and remote control.

Buy sex toys that meet your needs and desires. Actually, buy more than one! There are so many ways to pleasure yourself or add some fun to your sex life with your partner.
