Adult vibrators have come a long way from the early plastic models that just barely resembled a penis. In those days, the adult vibrators were called personal massagers and were advertised with pictures in a standard Sears catalog type product magazine. Seldom were the real uses of the adult vibrator listed and the pictures used in the ad more often than not featured a woman caressing the massager with her cheek. (read more)
The typical modern adult vibrator not only resembles a real penis, but more often than not will so closely resemble a penis in appearance and feel that it would be difficult to tell the difference between the adult vibrator and the real penis. They are used for anal and vaginal stimulation in women and anal stimulation in men. There are many different types and shapes of adult vibrators.
Anal adult vibrators are tailored specifically for the needs of someone desiring a little anal action. Of course the differences between the anal vibrators and vaginal vibrators are few as the same basic shape can be used to stimulate both areas. Those meant specifically for vaginas will sometimes have additional attachments to stimulate a woman's G spot which of course wouldn't work going in from the other end.
In terms of the realistic looking adult vibrators, the appearance varies greatly from one to another. While some tend to be striving for the most accurate depiction of a man's penis, others tend to favor the more science fiction realm of 'if a woman could design a penis' some of the otherworldly adult vibrators come with pussy beads, G spot stimulators and rotating action. These adult vibrators come in all colors ranging from natural Caucasian flesh to African flesh to Mexican or Asian flesh tones. When those colors aren't enough for you there are 'fantasy' colors: Purple, green, blue bright orange and clear.
Since the modern technology has advanced significantly there are adult vibrators that are for more than just penis substitutes. In fact there are adult vibrators that are shaped like eggs, bullets, and beads. There are adult vibrators geared specifically for clitoral stimulation and less for penetration. There are strap on vibrators that attach to your fingers which turns your ordinary dull fingers into throbbing instruments of pleasure able to be put anywhere.
Some as mentioned before are geared specifically for reaching a woman's G spot. Some are unique in their construction while others are unique in the materials out of which they were made. There are vibrators made from glass, others made from metal and some from silicone while these may not have more than a passing resemblance to a penis the smooth surfaces of glass and metal makes for a unique sexual experience. The silicone vibrators have the firmness of a smooth glass or metal model with a soft 'give' to it. These smooth adult vibrators make cleaning the toy when you are done much easier.
When you are browsing through the magazine looking for a vibrator that is right for you, you may run across some terms that don't seem to make much sense. First, rabbit vibrators. You know what a rabbit is, right? In the world of adult vibrators, 'rabbit' refers the size and speed, it's small and fast. Thruster vibrators refers to the type of motion the adult vibrator is making. Tickler vibrators have a small piece to 'tickle' at a woman's G spot.
There are vibrating panties, vibrating strap on penises, clitoral stimulation devices and all day wearing anal vibrating toys. There are even adult vibrators that are small enough to wear around your neck in a discreet form. The Neon Party Tube is a waterproof adult vibrator that is ready to go anywhere at any time with just a simple twist.
If you've ever used one of these types of toys you know that accidentally pulling the remote control plug in wire from the device can lead to a quick end of the action, not to mention an awkward few minutes of trying to reattach the wire to the remote in your hand while the dildo is firmly planted in your ass. Yeah, it's awkward all right. The good news is that with the advances in modern technology that there are now wireless adult vibrators with remote controls.
In fact, many of these wireless adult vibrators can be concealed beneath the clothing and worn all day. Many years ago there was a scene from a popular television show where one character was wearing the wireless panties vibrators and an office co-worker found the remote control and began intermittently turning it on in the least opportune times for her. Yes, it was hilarious. Many of these wireless adult vibrators can be recharged via a USB port recharging unit, and some simply need to be plugged in.
Some wireless vibrators are the more simple panties type, some are clip on nipple vibrators, some are anal butt plug type adult vibrators. Many of these all day adult vibrators come with ultra quiet motors to make sure that those close to you can't over hear a thing, that is unless you are moaning, biting your lip and crying out loud. That might give it away.
It's not always the size that makes the difference between whether you should purchase it or not. It's the power the little thing puts out. Some of the more best-selling vibrators are the high speed, high intensity bullet sized vibrators often called pocket rockets or buzz rockets.
One important thing to remember is to keep your adult vibrator clean and in good working order so that it will serve your sexual appetite needs for years to come. First, always remove the batteries prior to storing it away. This will help lessen the drain on the batteries and will prevent the possibility of corrosion from the batteries from ruining the vibrator. Second, always clean your adult vibrator toy with warm to hot soapy water. For a little extra dose of cleaning power use an antibacterial sex toy spray. (close)
