It is our pleasure to welcome and introduce you to the wonderful world of vibrators. If you don’t know much about them, you’ve probably at least heard whispers of the endless amount of pleasure they offer. The one vibrator most women have heard about is the Rabbit, which got a lot of women talking and interested in them after featuring on the TV show, Sex and the City.
As the world is becoming more and more sex-positive manufactures of sex toys are using innovative new technology and materials to produce an outstanding variety and quality of vibrators. Women are now recognising the importance of sexual fulfilment and their sexual wellbeing; Having a vibrator by their bed or even a collection is becoming the norm for the modern day woman. Actress, Eva Longoria has spoken openly in interviews, like Cosmopolitan about her use of vibrators and how they help you understand your body and what you like. She even says she likes to give them to her friends as gifts for their birthdays!
Aside from rabbits, there are a variety of other vibrators to choose from in all shapes and sizes. Below we will explain the different vibrators and their features. Whatever you desire there is something for everyone.
Classic vibrators are cylindrical, with a rounded head and are long in length. They have a hard interior, but are coated in a soft silicone material for comfort. Some have textures or ribbing for extra stimulation. Depending on the product, they may be rechargeable via charging port or require batteries. They usually have one motor in the head with a variety of vibration functions. Some have two motors, with one in each end. Classic vibrators are used for both internal and external stimulation. The round head makes penetration easy and can also be used to stimulate the clitoris.
Bullet vibrators are small and discreet, making them ideal travel companions. Their small size means they can easily fit in your handbag. What if someone were to see it you might ask? They often have a cute design that doesn’t look like a sex toy. Bullets can be hard shelled (alluminium or plastic), or have a soft rubber/jelly like coating. Most bullets require batteries, but some are rechargeable via charging port. They usually have one motor with a variety of vibration functions. Bullet vibrators are very versatile and can be used all over the body, as well as internally.
Rabbit vibrators have a round head for easy penetration and often have a curved shaft. They have external rabbit ears or a single finger (not all rabbit vibrators have rabbit ears for external stimulation. Some of the best ones on the market have a single finger/node). The material is soft and body-safe. They have two motors, one in the tip of the shaft and one in the external ears. Depending on the product, they may be rechargeable via charging port or require batteries. Each brand has their own unique features, like rotating or rolling heads, or internal beads. Rabbits are used for dual stimulation of the g-spot and clitoris. This combination produces mid blowing orgasms…
G-spot vibrators are long in length, with a curved and round head. The material is soft and body-safe for smooth sensations. They are either rechargeable via charging port or use batteries. Most have one motor with a variety of vibrations patterns and strengths. Some have two motors (1 at each end). Some brands have unique features, like LELO’S Mona, which uses wave motion technology, making the shaft move back and forth like a finger would. G-spot vibrators are used for internal stimulation of the G-spot. However, the Mona mentioned above is great to use on the clitoris because of the wave motion technology.
As the name suggests, these vibrators are for external stimulation of the clitoris. They come in variety of different shapes. Many are ergonomically designed to perfectly fit in your hand and are quite small. Others are longer and are hand held. They are made of body-safe, soft material and are rechargeable via charging port or require batteries. Depending on the product they have one or two motors.
*Most clitoral stimulators use traditional vibrating motors. There are a few that have new innovative pressure wave technology and use ‘touch-free’ clitoral stimulation. These products have a little hole at the top of them for the air suction and vibrations. They have caused quite a stir in the sex toys industry, with women who’ve used them saying they have experienced orgasms like they’ve never had before… These tend to simulate oral sex. Brands that have products using this technology:

Wand vibrators (also known as wand massagers) are quite big compared to other vibrators. Their shape resembles a microphone, with a large vibrating round head. Some, like the LELO Smart wand have a slight curve in the body. They are made of soft, body-safe material. Wands are *very powerful*, with the motor located in the head. It’s their AMAZING power that makes them one our favourites. Many wands come with a power cord that plugs into the wall, but there are some that are rechargeable via charging port.
*Wand Massagers are some of the most powerful vibrators in the world, and for this reason are one of the most popular types of clitoral vibrators! They are not for internal use. They are also great for all over body massage, which means you can use for solo or couple’s pleasure. If you are purchasing a wand for couples play, we would suggest a cordless wand like the LELO smart wand mentioned above.
Realistic vibrators are phallic shaped and come in different sizes. They have a hard interior, but are coated in a soft silicone, rubber or jelly material for comfort. Some have textures or ribbing for extra stimulation and a more realistic feel. They usually have one motor with a variety of speeds and are battery operated. Realistic vibrators are used for internal stimulation.
Dildo vibrators are phallic shaped and look very realistic. They have a hard interior, but are coated in a soft silicone, rubber or jelly material for comfort. Some have textures, ribbing or veins for extra stimulation and a more realistic feel. They usually have one bullet motor beneath the tip with a variety of speeds and are battery operated. Realistic vibrators are used for internal stimulation. *Some realistic dildos have remote controls, and some have a suction cup at the base to stick to a hard surface, so you can use it hands free.
Vibrating panties come with a vibrator that usually sits in a small pocket on the front of the panties, stimulating the clitoris. Some have bullets that you can insert inside you. The vibrators are small and come in a variety of shapes, like a bullet or butterfly. The material is hard shelled (plastic or aluminium), or has a soft rubber coating. They are rechargeable via charging port or require batteries. They usually have one motor with a variety of speeds. Some have a remote control which is great for a hands-free solo experience, or you can wear during intercourse for extra stimulation as most have crotchless panties. If you want to use while having sex we would suggest one without remote control so you can both enjoy the experience without any distractions.
We recommend trying a rabbit vibrator. They are very versatile, and therefore the best way to explore what makes you tick and your orgasmic responses to stimulation of different areas. Don’t know if you are ready to insert a toy inside you? You don’t have to at the beginning. You can play around with rabbits externally. We would suggest the ‘LELO INA WAVE’. Her shaft moves in waves like a finger and is AMAZING for clitoral stimulation, as well as her intended small finger. Then when you are ready, you can insert it if you wish. Some women prefer to only insert vibrators slightly and still get great satisfaction this way. INA WAVE has powerful dual motors and the batteries last a long time.
SVAKOM’S ‘TRYSTA’ is another rabbit we suggest. Trysta is a targeted rolling G-spot vibrator. We LOVE LOVE LOVE the rolling ball on the head… With its powerful motor it is amazing for g-spot stimulation. The angle of the clitoris massager (2nd motor) is smaller so that it reaches the clitoris easily and provides extra stimulation.
So, if you are only going to have one go-to toy, a rabbit is a great investment because of its dual stimulation and versatility.
Nervous about using a vibrator for the first time?
Don’t put pressure on yourself to have the ‘ultimate’ orgasm straight away. Instead, enjoy the new feelings and sensations. Explore the different settings and try using it on different areas. You will soon discover what turns you on. Just enjoy the new experiences a vibrator offers. Doing this will help you relax and you are more likely to have an orgasm.
