I'm just confused about if vibrators are all the same. I've played with a couple. I didn't like the buzz feeling. But I'm reading online (yes, I know I should not do this) that there are vibrators that do other things. None of it makes sense. Can you please tell me if there is something beyond average vibration?
You're right! Vibrators can be confusing. I understand and agree.
I'm going to give you a few explanations and options. Grab yourself a cup of tea and Let's Talk Vibrators!
Lins, first I'd like to thank you for reaching out. With the thousands of sex toys out there, it's understandable that figuring out the best option for you can be a bit overwhelming.
Are you ready? Let's start with vibrators. Vibration is the most common stimulation and can be found in many vibrators. Vibration sensations can range from buzzy, much like a toothbrush, to deep and rumbly like a motorcycle.
Buzzy vibrations are usually found in vibrators with smaller motors, such as the Rianne S Rechargeable Vibrating Heart Massager.
Lins, Magic Wand massagers are FAMOUS for their deep, rumbly vibrations.
And lucky for you, they come in 4 different options now - they're newest, the Magic Wand Mini, was introduced in 2022.
There are the Original Magic Wand Body Massager, the Magic Wand + Plus Body Massager, and the Magic Wand Rechargeable Body Massager to choose from depending on if you want one that plugs into an electrical socket or one that is rechargeable and therefore "wireless".
Next, let's talk about a couple of alternative options when it comes to lesser known "vibrator" sensations.
First up - Air Pulse!
Vibrators that offer air pulse sensations can provide non-contact stimulation of the clitoris.
Air Pulse stimulation works on the principle of displacing air or ‘pulsing’, creating a sensation similar to a piston.
One product that offers air pulse is the Satisfyer Haute Couture.
Option 2 - Suction!
Suction is a stimulation that many people don’t realize is an option, and often it’s confused with Air Pulse technology.
Suction works by drawing air through the product to create a vacuum.
The Maia Tulip PRO Suction Vibe is unique in that it offers 15 levels of suction to suit your clitoris or nipples, in addition to 15 vibrating functions. These 15 levels of suction allow you to experiment with stronger or less intense suction, along with multiple vibration sensations.
Dr. Sunny Tip: Always try suction on an arm or thigh first before heading directly to your clitoris or nipples. This way, you can determine the strength of the suction before placing it on a sensitive area.
Option 3 - Sonic Waves!
I know, you weren't expecting this one, were you, Lins *wink, wink*.
The Lelo Sona sonic clitoral massager is surprising for its petite size. It has some huge technology inside its delicate shape that provides sonic waves.
Now, you may wonder what the heck THAT feels like - and I invite you to try it for yourself!
The power of these pulsing sonic waves is that they can travel deeper than purely the tip of your clitoris. Not to get too technical, but I'm talking about the clitoral crura or "legs" which are the two erectile tissue structures that together form a V-shape down either side of the vaginal canal.
My point is, sonic waves can travel down these internal "legs" to provide A LOT more intentional pleasure.
So Lins, has this given you some food for thought?
Vibrators, in all their many forms, are becoming more diverse and unique - and technology-driven!
There are many sensations of pleasure for you to explore, Lins.
