Vibrators are one of the most popular types of sex toys. So, what’s all the buzz about? There is not one specific type of vibrator that is better than the rest. Instead, there are four main types of vibrators to choose from, and it all comes down to personal preference. These are straight vibrators, phallic vibrators, rabbit vibes, and bullets. Picking out which type is best for any specific person can take a bit of trial and error. Once the preferred type is found though, it is smooth sailing from there on out.
Straight vibrators are the most basic form of vibrating sex toy. Though they come in a variety of widths and lengths, the design is ultimately the same. They are, at their most basic, simply a straight device, with various vibration strengths. To use them, they can either be inserted vaginally/anally, or used as a clit stimulator with a little extra reach. This classic form will likely never go out of style, and is a widely popular choice, that is great for starting out. One of the most beneficial parts of this toy is that it allows the user to decide if they prefer the toy for clit stimulation, insertion or both.
Phallic vibrators are very similar to straight vibrators but have one key difference. They’re shaped like a penis. That is really it for the most part. While a straight vibrator may have some different texture to it, phallic vibrators have the shape and texture of a penis. This style of vibrator is mostly for people who have decided that they prefer insertion over clit stimulation. This style has a pretty diverse selection, ranging in sizes, textures, shapes, and different vibration functions.
The bullets main usage is as a clitoral stimulator by delivering a strong vibration to a small area. Some come in a very basic style, utilizing a battery pack connected to a bullet via a cord. These are a very basic style of toy, and they do have a more shortened life span due to the cord being tugged on during play. To remedy this, many toy makers have opted to house the batteries in the unit itself. Another, and in our opinion a much better option, is for the toy to rechargeable. The rechargeable bullets are often also the strongest, and the highest of quality.
The final style that we will be discussing is the rabbit. Fun history fact, the first rabbit was designed in Japan, as a way around their stiff rules around sexuality. They were not allowed to make a sex toy look like genitalia, so they decided to go with the design of the rabbit. The rabbit combines the straight vibrator with a bullet, providing stimulation to both the clit, and the g-spot at the same time. There is a variety of looks that a rabbit vibrator can take, though the most common is a medium sized shaft, with a strong bullet connected to one side. When picking out a rabbit, the best one to choose will have dual motors, which generate vibration at the tip of the shaft, as well as in the bullet portion.
Picking out which type of toy to go with takes a good deal of trial and error. If a straight vibrator is chosen, try using it for both penetration and clit stimulation. When a choice is made on which way is preferred, then it is time to pick up a good version of whichever type is preferred. So try them out, and figure it all out for yourself!
