Sex Toys Awards: 5 Reasons Why They Don’t Work & What You Can Do About It

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 OBJECTIVE OF Sex Toys

Some sex toys aid the man’s erection, stimulate the feminine genitals to are more sensitive or give a different feel to ‘normal’ sex. Other adult toys offer an ‘environment’ for variations in sex, for example so called orgy bed sheets. Sometimes they are used to help a person who has difficulty with unaided sex to attain sexual satisfaction. However most sex toys provide a new way to directly stimulate the female or male genitals to accomplish sexual satisfaction.

Using sex toys can offer new experiences and variation in the sexual experience. It can also provide 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 intercourse or as a means to obtain orgasm through only the stimulation provided by the sex toy.

Types of Sex Toys

Vibrating Sex Toys

Probably the most well known sex 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 these are pencil or wand shaped (though normally thicker when compared to a pencil). They often have an internal battery (or two) which powers a small electric motor. Sometimes the battery pack and controller are external and connected to the vibrator by a wire. This motor is fitted with a small, out of balance, weight mounted on the shaft. As this weight rotates it throws the motor and vibrator right into a small circular movement which causes the vibration you feel.

With a vibrator which has a controller, as the power is increased the speed of the motor increases and with it both rate and strength of vibration. Both the strength and rate of vibration effects how stimulating you find the sex toy. The very best effect will not be as strong and as fast as possible. The optimum settings may well change as your amount of excitement builds. To get the best results it is worth buying a vibrator which is controllable.

Different vibrators could have different characteristics and you may well find you prefer one combination much more than another and your preference may even vary based on which part of your system you are stimulating.

More 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 quite 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 sex toys that use other ways to provide mechanical stimulation. These usually be determined by a motor which makes the masturbator continually change its shape which gives a sort of rotational movement or helps it be move back and forth. The back and forth movements are sometimes powered by an air mattress pump rather than motor. The movements have already been used to create, for example, mechanical licking tongues, vibrators that ‘penetrate’ the vagina and mouth simulators to give a guy a ‘blow job’.

On a bigger scale and many 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 adult toys. Because you can have guessed these are all offered in a bewildering selection of combinations.

A common combination in lots of ‘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 to their surfaces; a dildo or vibrator may have ridges or soft spikes or perhaps a rippled shape.

Sensation Change Sex Toys

Some sex toys rather than provide vibrating or moving stimulation, change the feel of sex.

For instance there are a number of sleeves to put over the penis to supply different sensations for both partners while engaged in penetrative sex.

You can find rings that squeeze the base of the penis and/or tighten the scrotum that assist the man’s erection and also changes his sensations. There are penis extenders and thickeners which may provide a man’s partner greater sensations during penetration.

There are a wide selection of lubricants that may 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?

An excellent question is: why do people work with a sex toy? Surely fingers, tongues, penises, clitorises and vaginas etc all provide great sexual stimulation and enjoyment.

Well, aside from therapeutic uses (eg erection assistance), sex 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) and some can provide experiences extremely hard with ‘normal body parts’ (particularly vibrating adult toys and electro-stimulation).

. Where To Start

Should you have not tried a sex toy before and don’t yet have an idea of what you might like, try one of the simpler vibrators first. Almost certainly you will enjoy the experience and then begin to wonder what other delights are available with more sophisticated vibrators along with other sex toys …
