Sex Toy FAQ
How do vibrators work?
Vibrators contain an electric or battery powered motor that produces vibrations. When the power is turned on the vibrating motor is activated, creating vibrations.
What is the difference between battery and electric powered vibrators?
Generally, battery powered vibrators tend to be less powerful than electric powered vibrators. Electric powered vibrators tend to be designed with stronger motors which use more power, which means you don't have to worry about electricity running out like batteries do.
Why are there different styles of vibrators?
Vibrators come in different styles because people like to use them in different ways. For example, a clitoral vibrator is designed to stimulate the clitoris while a G-Spot vibrator is designed to stimulate the G-Spot. There are many different styles to choose from and some vibrators even combine two or more different styles, for example the Jack Rabbit stimulates the clitoris with the "bunny" while stimulating the G-Spot with the twisting shaft and the outer-vaginal area with the spinning beads. It is best to choose a style that responds to your body, creating stimulation.
How long do vibrators last?
Depending on the quality of the vibrator, they can last anywhere from a few months to a few years. Cheaper vibrators tend to break down relatively quickly, so if you are looking for quality, spend that little extra to have a more longer-lasting vibrator.
What is the difference between a clitoral and a vaginal orgasm?
Clitoral orgasms are achieved by stimulating the clitoris and usually are quicker and very intense. Vaginal orgasms can take some time to build but is often a deeply powerful experience.
Can anal vibrators give you an orgasm?
It's possible. Anal vibrators are well-known to produce a lot of pleasure as the anus is a very sensitive spot with many nerves. Stimulating these nerves with a vibrator can heighten sexual experience and lead to stronger orgasms. There have been reports that people have had an orgasm from anal stimulation alone.
Can vibrators be used during intercourse?
Yes they can. In fact, butterfly vibrators were specifically designed for this purpose. If you don't have access to a butterfly vibrator, any small stimulator will do. Both partners usually enjoy vibrations during intercourse.
Is it safe to use a vibrator during pregnancy?
It is generally considered safe to use a vibrator during pregnancy. If your doctor has given you the green light for sexual intercourse, then it's generally accepted that you also have the OK to use a vibrator.
Is it safe to share a vibrator with a friend?
It is up to the individual. However, if you are concerned about catching a disease it is not a good idea to share sex toys as this will expose yourself to whatever diseases your friend may carry.
Where should vibrators be stored?
The best place to store a vibrator is in a cool, dry place. Moisture is the number one cause of damage. Avoiding moisture will go a long way towards keeping a vibrator in good working condition.
Why does my new toy have an unusual smell?
The smell is not uncommon and it doesn't exist with all toys, but for many it does. The smell is caused by the combination of materials used to manufacture your toy. The quickest way to eliminate the smell is to wash your toy with adult toy cleaner or mild soap, and let it air out before you use it.
What is a Cock Ring?
A cock ring is a device that fits around the penis, constricting the flow of blood and increasing the intensity of an erection. Just before orgasm, the cock ring is released, creating a more powerful orgasm.
What is a Penis Pump?
A penis pump is a device that increases penis size via vacuum pressure.
What are Nipple Rings, Chains, Clamps and other forms of Nipple Jewelry?
Nipple stimulation, when performed correctly, can actually lead to an orgasm. Specific products designed for this purpose are nipple rings, vibrating nipple clamps and nipple weights, nipple exciters and arousers, nipple enlargers, breast enhancers and all other sorts of nipple jewelry to beautify the female breast. These products and more have the sole purpose to help tease, fondle, stimulate and pleasure the nipples and breasts, especially to areas that are very sensitive to touch, such as the areola (the pinkish area that directly surrounds the nipple).
What's the Best Sex Toy for a First-time Sex Toy User?
Your first sex toy should be something that is personal and definitely catches your eye. Many popular first sex toys are often vibrators or dildos. The rule of the thumb is to start with small sex toys and work your way up to larger sizes. Keep your first sex toy adventures simple.
How do I influence my Partner into using a Vibrator or other Sex Toy?
It's just like trying anything new, a new type of change. You have to explain that a sex toy will not take the place of him or her. Quite the opposite, a sex toy will add more pleasure and excitement into your sex life.
What are BDSM/Fetish Sex Toys?
