The variety of adult toys is surprising. Sex toys vary from purely male or purely female sex toys to toys which you can use by both sexes. Additionally, there are some sex toys that may also be classified as sex aids or marital aids.
The Purpose Of Sex Toys
Some sex toys aid the man’s erection, stimulate the female genitals to become more sensitive or give a different feel to ‘normal’ sex. Other sex toys provide an ‘environment’ for variations in sex, for instance so called orgy bed sheets. Sometimes they are used to help someone who has difficulty with unaided sex to accomplish sexual satisfaction. However most sex toys provide a new solution to directly stimulate the female or male genitals to attain sexual satisfaction.
Using sex toys can offer new experiences and variation in the sexual experience. Additionally, it may give a fantasy element for enhancing or revitalising a relationship.
The usual expectation is that a masturbator provides direct stimulation of the genitals in foreplay and/or during sexual activity or as a means to acquire orgasm through only the stimulation provided by the sex toy.
Types of Sex Toys
Vibrating Sex Toys
Probably the most popular adult toys are ‘vibrators’ which, because the name suggests, provide stimulation of the genitals using vibration. They’re mainly used to stimulate the clitoris, but may also be used to stimulate any other area of the female body or that of a man’s.
The simplest of the are pencil or wand shaped (though normally thicker when compared to a pencil). They often have an internal battery (or two) which powers a little electric motor. Sometimes the battery power and controller are external and connected to the vibrator by way of a wire. This motor is fitted with a little, out of balance, weight attached to the shaft. As this weight rotates it throws the motor and vibrator right into a small circular movement which in turn causes the vibration you feel.
With a vibrator which has a controller, because the power is increased the speed of the motor increases sufficient reason for it both rate and strength of vibration. Both strength and rate of vibration effects how stimulating you find the sex toy. The very best effect will not be as strong so when fast as you possibly can. The optimum settings may change as your degree of excitement builds. To get the very best results it is worth buying a vibrator which is controllable.
Different vibrators will have different characteristics and you may well find you like one combination a lot more than another as well as your preference may even vary based on which part of the body you are stimulating.
Recently electronic vibrator controllers have appeared which provide not merely the static control of power/speed but additionally let you select patterns of power pulses and surges. These can be very effective.
There are also other vibrating sex toys such as for example butterfly stimulators and vibrating penis rings.
Other Powered Sex Toys
There are some adult toys that use other ways to provide mechanical stimulation. These usually depend on a motor that makes the sex toy continually change its shape which gives a sort of rotational movement or helps it be move back and forth. The trunk and forth movements are sometimes powered by an air pump rather than motor. The movements have been used to create, for example, mechanical licking tongues, vibrators that ‘penetrate’ the vagina and mouth simulators to provide a man a ‘blow job’.
On a bigger scale plus much more expensive, you can find ‘sex machines’ that incorporate thrusting and vibrating dildos.
Combination Sex Toys
So far we’ve covered vibrating, moving and thrusting sex toys. As you may have guessed they are all offered in a bewildering array of combinations.
震蛋 in many ‘Rabbit Style’ vibrators is clitoral stimulation using vibrations and vaginal stimulation using movement and sometimes a thrusting motion as well.
Many sex toys add varying textures with their surfaces; a dildo or vibrator may have ridges or soft spikes or perhaps a rippled shape.
Sensation Change Sex Toys
Some sex toys instead of provide vibrating or moving stimulation, change the feel of sex.
For instance there are a variety of sleeves to put on the penis to provide different sensations for both partners while engaged in penetrative sex.
You can find rings that squeeze the bottom of the penis and/or tighten the scrotum that assist the man’s erection and also changes his sensations. You can find penis extenders and thickeners which may give a man’s partner greater sensations during penetration.
There are a wide selection of lubricants that can significantly change the feel of sex.
You can find PVC and Polyurethane bed sheets which are water and oil proof which you can use for slippery or messy sex.
Why Use A Sex Toy?
A good question is: why do people use a masturbator? Surely fingers, tongues, penises, clitorises and vaginas etc all provide great sexual stimulation and enjoyment.
Well, apart from therapeutic uses (eg erection assistance), adult toys can drive the imagination (being taken by way of a machine), provide variety (new ways to do old things), vary the stimulating effects in otherwise normal sex (penis sleeves) plus some can provide experiences extremely hard with ‘normal body parts’ (particularly vibrating sex toys and electro-stimulation).
Where To Start
Assuming you have not tried a sex toy before and don’t yet have a good idea of everything you might like, try one of many simpler vibrators first. Almost certainly you will benefit from the experience and then start to wonder what other delights are available with more sophisticated vibrators and other sex toys …
