ADULT TOYS On A Budget: 5 Tips From The Great Depression
The variety of adult toys is surprising. Sex toys vary from purely male or purely female adult 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 are more sensitive or provide a different feel to ‘normal’ sex. Other adult toys offer an ‘environment’ for variations in sex, for instance so called orgy bed linens. Sometimes they are used to help somebody who has difficulty with unaided sex to attain sexual satisfaction. However most sex toys provide a new solution to directly stimulate the female or male genitals to attain sexual satisfaction furry sex doll.
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 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 popular adult toys are ‘vibrators’ which, as the name suggests, provide stimulation of the genitals using vibration. They are 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 than 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 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 and with it both rate and strength of vibration. Both 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 well change as your degree 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 as well as your preference may even vary based on which part of your body you are stimulating.
Recently electronic vibrator controllers have appeared which provide not only the static control of power/speed but also enable you to select patterns of power pulses and surges. These can be very effective.
Additionally, there are other vibrating sex toys such as 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 which makes the masturbator 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 mattress pump rather than a motor. The movements have 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, there are ‘sex machines’ that incorporate thrusting and vibrating dildos.
Combination Sex Toys
So far we have covered vibrating, moving and thrusting adult toys. Because you can have guessed these are all offered in a bewildering array 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 could have ridges or soft spikes or 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 number of sleeves to put over the penis to provide different sensations for both partners while engaged in penetrative sex.
There are rings that squeeze the base 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 may give a man’s partner greater sensations during penetration.
There are a wide selection 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?
An excellent question is: why do people work with a masturbator? 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 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 not possible with ‘normal body parts’ (particularly vibrating sex toys and electro-stimulation).
Where To Start
