The variety of sex toys is surprising. Sex toys change from purely male or purely female adult toys to toys that can be used by both sexes. Additionally, there are some sex toys that can also be classified as sex aids or marital aids.
THE OBJECTIVE OF Sex Toys
Some adult toys aid the man’s erection, stimulate the female genitals to become 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 linens. Sometimes they are used to greatly help someone who has difficulty with unaided sex to achieve sexual satisfaction. However most adult toys provide a new solution to directly stimulate the male or female genitals to attain sexual satisfaction.
Using sex toys can provide new experiences and variation in the sexual experience. It can also give a fantasy element for enhancing or revitalising a relationship.
The usual expectation is a masturbator provides direct stimulation of the genitals in foreplay and/or during sexual activity 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 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 could 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 pack and controller are external and connected to the vibrator by a wire. This motor is fitted with a little, out of balance, weight mounted on the shaft. As this weight rotates it throws the motor and vibrator into a small circular movement which causes the vibration you feel.
With a vibrator which has a controller, because the power is increased the speed of the motor increases and with it both the rate and strength of vibration. Both the strength and rate of vibration effects how stimulating you find the sex toy. The best effect might not be as strong and as fast as you possibly can. The optimum settings may change as your degree of excitement builds. To get the best results it is worth buying a vibrator which is controllable.
Different vibrators will have different characteristics and you’ll well find you prefer one combination much more than another as well as your preference may even vary based on which part of your body you are stimulating.
More recently electronic vibrator controllers have appeared which provide not merely the static control of power/speed but also 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 supply mechanical stimulation. These usually be determined by a motor that makes the sex toy continually change its shape which provides sort of rotational movement or helps it be move back and forth. The back and forth movements are occasionally powered by an air pump rather than a 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 man 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 have covered vibrating, moving and thrusting sex toys. As you may have guessed they 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 adult toys add varying textures to their surfaces; a dildo or vibrator may have ridges or soft spikes or perhaps a rippled shape.
性玩具 Sensation Change Sex Toys
Some sex toys rather than provide vibrating or moving stimulation, change the feel of sex.
For instance there are a variety of sleeves to put on the penis to supply different sensations for both partners while engaged in penetrative sex.
There are rings that squeeze the bottom of the penis and/or tighten the scrotum that assist the man’s erection and in addition changes his sensations. You can find penis extenders and thickeners which might provide a man’s partner greater sensations during penetration.
There are a wide variety of lubricants that may significantly change the feel of sex.
There are 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 work with a sex toy? Surely fingers, tongues, penises, clitorises and vaginas etc all provide great sexual stimulation and enjoyment.
Well, apart from therapeutic uses (eg erection assistance), sex toys can drive the imagination (being taken by way of a machine), provide variety (new methods to do old things), vary the stimulating effects in otherwise normal sex (penis sleeves) and some can provide experiences not possible 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 a good idea of everything you might like, try among the simpler vibrators first. Almost certainly you will enjoy the experience and then start to wonder what other delights can be found with more sophisticated vibrators along with other sex toys …
