Fingertip Vibrators

An amazingly effective new inspiration, the fingertip vibe is a small plastic or jelly ring that goes around one finger. Attached to the ring, along with the finger, is a removable stimulation pad.

Most models feature several different pad attachments. Contoured just right, they're amazingly precise and can focus in on your sweet spot in no time at all.

Smooth Vibrators

When most people think of a vibrator, the smooth shaft style is the one that comes to mind.

The shaft is between 6 and 8 inches long, smooth from tip to base in the shape of a penis with a multi-speed controller at the base.

Though it has the shape of a penis, the slimline does not have the definition of a dildo. In fact, it has no definition at all - the surface is completely smooth.

The batteries are inserted into the hollow shaft and the controller screws on at the base. Many women enjoy the smooth surface as it tends to glide easily to the perfect position.

Jack Rabbit Vibrators

Originally designed by a woman, Jack Rabbit style vibrators are used for simultaneous vaginal and clitoral stimulation.

The shaft is typically very soft jelly or Cyberskin material in the shape of a penis - most models add as much detail as a realistic dildo.

Attached on the top of the shaft is a small rabbit (or beaver, pachyderm, panther, alligator, turtle or some other animal) that is made of a softer jelly than the shaft.

The rabbit is only about 1/4 the length of the shaft. It's ears are designed to gently stimulate the clitoris while the shaft is inserted into the vagina. The deeper you insert the shaft, the harder the rabbit presses on your clit.

Doctors and sex therapists worldwide are lauding Jack Rabbit vibrators for their ability to simultaneously stimulate the clitoris, the G-Spot, and the vaginal walls.

In addition, most rabbit vibrators feature multi-speed controllers and a variety of vibrating, pulsating or thrusting options. Top of the line models has a super soft, skin-like feel.

Clitoral Vibrators

Clitoral vibrators use several different designs to achieve the goal of stimulating the clitoris.

Some features a large, round bulge at the base of a slimline styled vibrator so that the bulge comes into contact with the clitoris when the shaft is fully inserted into the vagina.

Some clitoral vibrators are shaped like a tongue or a finger to allow for precise stimulation of the clitoral area.

The Magic Wand

Whether you're looking for an amazingly effective clitoral stimulator or just a good neck massage, the Magic Wand can deliver pleasure to almost any part of your body.

The Magic Wand is a unique vibrator in a class by itself. It features a large, circular head that is a little smaller than a baseball attached to a stable shaft that is 7 or 8 inches long.

The head can be used to massage any area of the body but has been found to be particularly effective in stimulating the clitoris. The shaft itself is never inserted or used for stimulation.

G-Spot Vibrators

G-spot vibrators feature a normal length shaft that is curved between 45 and 90 degrees just before the tip to allow for acute stimulation of the female g-spot. The vibrators are also popular with men for prostate stimulation.

Vibrating Eggs & Bullets

Vibrating eggs, also called vibrating bullets, are small, oval or egg-shaped vibrators that attach to a multi-speed controller via a small wire.

They can be used to stimulate almost any area of the body, but are primarily effective in getting to the clitoris and the anus. Both men and women can enjoy vibrating eggs. For a little extra fun, try a remote controlled vibrating egg or a wireless vibrating egg.

Early designs were called bullet vibrators and were mostly made of hard plastic. Newer models feature jelly, Cyberskin, futurotic, ur3, metal and some of the more exotic materials.

Better models also come with 2 or 3 bullets. Wireless models can be worn underneath your clothes and controlled by yourself or someone else in the room. Talk about foreplay at the Friday 4 PM meeting!

Many women enjoy double penetration with a double bullet. Even light stimulation around the anus can greatly heighten the force of orgasm from the clitoral and/or vaginal bullets.

Multi-speed controllers also allow you to go from mild to wild at the touch of a button. It's nice to have a toy that peaks when you do - and one who can take it slow and easy until you're ready.

Realistic Dildos

Believe me when I tell you that when you don't always know when you have the real thing in your hand, your mouth or anywhere else you can stick it.

They're hard, but with just the right amount of giving to make it feel realistic. Specialized vertebrae inside the shafts can cause orgasmic reflex strokes.

In all good models, you'll see exacting attention to detail, the use of expensive, but realistic materials and even models molded after the superstars of schlong.

Modern materials and design have allowed the creation of dildos and dongs that are amazingly life-like and are always ready to please.

Certain models also feature built-in vibration for additional stimulation. Realistic dildos carry the heftiest price tag, but if you want something life-like, they're worth their weight in Cyberskin.

Strap-On Dildos

Men use strap-on dildos to deliver pleasure to their partner after they are spent. Some may also attempt double penetration using the dildo and their own penis to create a sort of "two-headed monster".

There are some women who like to turn the tables on their man and wear the penis for a session. Feel no pity for the men, they enjoy it.

Strap-ons with vibrating bullets built in are becoming especially popular with the ladies, as they enjoy intense clitoral stimulation while doling out pleasure with the dildo.

Double Ended Dildos

There's nothing hotter than two tanned, toned bodies going rear to rear with a huge double dong. Or maybe you want both heads all to yourself! There's room for two on each one of these exquisite creations. Don't be afraid to get creative.

You'll find that double ended dildos range in size from 1 to 3 feet and come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and materials. Like any dildo, the top of the line models is all made of ultra-realistic Cyberskin or futurotic material. The hottest new models feature the integrated vertebrae for added support, flex and penetrating ability.

Cleaning & Care of Vibrators & Dildos

Store them in a cool, dry place.

Wash them before and after each use with soap and warm water.

Use water-based lubes vs. oil based lubes.

Use condoms over the dildo or vibrator (this really works well with the lower priced dildos).

Keep extra batteries handy.
