Sex Toys FAQ #1 - What's a Vibrator?
vibrator is a battery or electrical powered device that delivers fast,
reliable vibrations much more intensely than a hand, penis or mouth. So this
is why vibrators are often recommended by doctors, therapists and magazine
editors as an effective way to help you achieve an orgasm.
Vibrators come in a huge range of shapes and sizes, some will appeal to
you, and others may not. You can get
penis shaped vibrators,
egg shaped vibrators and even
animal shaped vibrators.
Because vibrator orgasms can be more intense and are easier to achieve, they
can soon become an important and regular part of your sexual norm.
Sex Toys FAQ #2 - What's a Dildo?
A dildo unlike a vibrator does not vibrate. It is
designed for insertion either vaginally or anally. A dildo can be used on
its own or in a harness to enable hands-free penetration of a partner. These
are called strap-on dildos. Strap on sex is a common practice amongst
straight couples and gay couples.
Straight men sometimes enjoy penetration
by their partner which stimulates their prostrate gland and some women enjoy
penetrating their partner with a strap-on dildo perhaps because it gives
them power and a unique sensation of pleasure giving.
Men in straight
relationships can wear a dildo to experiment with double penetration on
their partner, or to prolong sexual intercourse after their own
subsided or before intercourse to lengthen the experience for their lover.

popular belief a dildo does not vibrate and is designed for insertion. This
often leads to the misconception that women orgasm more readily through
thrusting which is incorrect. The shape of a vibrator is not as important to

stimulation rather than thrusting alone, although once combined the dildo
and vibrator may provide the ultimate experience for many women.
Sex Toys FAQ #4 - What is a Clitoral Vibrator?

orgasm easier through direct clitoral stimulation and while standard
vibrators can easily help women achieve this, clitoral vibrators are used
uniquely for this pleasure.

looking and better for beginners using a vibrator for the first time. They
are often less intimidating than phallic shaped vibrators.
Some are hand
held such as the
Pocket Rocket and others can be worn, such as the
Venus Butterfly, or the
Decadent Lovebird. There are even
remote control vibrators on the market so that the woman's partner can
participate in pleasuring her with their choice of clitoral vibrator.
