Definition of Vibrator

Vibrator - The name for any variety of battery- or electrically-powered devices used for sexual gratification. The traditional vibrator is a long, slim, smooth cylinder (called a slimline), usually made of plastic, powered by batteries in the base of the vibe. There are also dual-action vibrators, which consist of a shaft, generally phallic-shaped, that may rotate in different directions, vibrate, have gyrating beads or "pearls," be textured or all of the above; they also have a clitoral stimulator attached at the base of the shaft which may be any variety of animal (rabbits and dolphins being popular), insect or even another body part. Most have separate controls for each action, though these may be found on either the base of the vibe or be attached by a cord or wire to a handpack where the batteries are inserted. There are strap-on vibrators that are worn via a g-string panty or elastic leg and waist straps; these can be remote-controlled or wireless as well as controlled by a handpack. There are also vibrating bullets, pocket rockets, G-Spot vibrators and anal vibrators. All varieties of vibrators are made from a wide spectrum of materials, in all price ranges, colors and sizes.

1. Results: What do you want this toy to do to you (or your partner)?

  • Is this your first foray into buying a vibrator? Then consider starting out with a small and gentle vibrator.
  • Are you looking for something to provide internal stimulation? Then a traditional vibrator is your best bet, but you should also consider a dual-action or G-Spot vibe.
  • Looking for external clitoral as well as internal stimulation? A dual-action vibrator is ideal.
  • Do you have difficulty achieving orgasm or need something more powerful? If so, you'll want to look into an electric vibrator.


2. Materials: What do you want this toy to feel like?

  • Do you want something that feels as much like skin as possible? Then you definitely want something made of CyberskinTM, Futurotic or Soft Touch materials; these materials are pricier than plastic, jelly or rubber, but feel uncannily realistic.
  • Are you looking for something that feels realistic, but is more affordable? Most vibrators made of jelly will warm to your body temperature and feel more lifelike.
  • Would you prefer a toy that you can use in the water? Then any vibe that is waterproof is the best vibrator for you; check by looking for a rubber O-ring at the opening to the battery compartment. If this goes missing then it is no longer waterproof.
  • Do you prefer something rigid that transmits the strongest vibration possible? A traditional slimline vibe, generally made of hard plastic and without bells or whistles, is what you're looking for.
  • Do you want a vibrator that is hypoallergenic and can be sterilized? Materials like silicone and glass are more expensive, but they're also more body healthy and have a longer lifespan.

 

3. Size: Do you want smaller than average, average or fantasy-sized?

  • Are you just beginning to experiment with toys? Then you'll probably want to start with a smaller vibrator.
  • Do you want something of an average size that won't be as intimidating to bring into your intimate relationship? You should look at the dimensions of the vibrator. If they're not listed in the description, contact customer service and ask; don't just go by a picture. If a toy is uncomfortable or too small to satisfy, then you'll be frustrated and unhappy.
  • Is a feeling of fullness most gratifying to you? Look for anything that has words describing magnitude in the name, such as "huge". Again, though, be sure to look at the dimensions so that you're not disappointed.

  • 4. Make Sure You Have All Your Accessories
  • Finally, after you've selected the product that you think meets your needs, make sure you have all of the following:
    • Plenty of fresh batteries in the proper size for your battery-operated toy. The description and the box your vibe comes in should say what size is needed.
    • The MyPleasure Customer Service email in case you have questions!
    Now that you've found something that you like, enjoy it in good health and great pleasure!

Why aren't there any larger vibrators?

We do offer a number of large vibrators, such as the Wildfire Line. However, we've found that many people underestimate how large a vibrator with a diameter of 1-3/4" is -- that's larger than the average male penis, so be careful when you start thinking you need even more girth on your vibrator!


How strong will my vibrator be?

It really depends on the vibrator you select. You can find more information in the MyPleasure Guide to Sex Toys vibrator section.


What material should I choose?

It entirely depends on what is important to you. You can find more information in the MyPleasure Guide to Sex Toys. For information on premium silicone, please read our article, Silicone: High Tech and Highly Pleasurable.
