The range of sex toys is surprising. Sex toys change from purely male or purely female sex toys to toys that can be used by both sexes. In addition there are some sex toys that may also be classified as sex aids or marital aids.
The Goal Of Sex Toys
Some sex toys aid the man’s erection, stimulate the female genitals to become more sensitive or provide a different feel to ‘normal’ sex. Other sex toys produce an ‘environment’ for variations in sex, for example so named orgy bed sheets. Sometimes they are used to aid a person who has difficulty with unaided sex to accomplish sexual satisfaction. Most sex toys provide a new way to directly stimulate the male or female genitals to achieve sexual satisfaction, however.
Using sex toys provides new experiences and variation within the sexual experience. It can also offer a fantasy element for enhancing or revitalising a romantic relationship.
The usual expectation is that a sex toy 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.
Kinds of Sex Toys
Vibrating Sex Toys
Essentially the most well-known sex toys are ‘vibrators’ which, since the name suggests, provide stimulation in the genitals using vibration. May also be used to stimulate any other part of the female body or that of a man’s, though they are mainly used to stimulate the clitoris.
The simplest of those are pencil or wand shaped (though normally thicker compared to a pencil). They frequently provide an internal battery (or two) which powers a tiny electric motor. Sometimes the battery controller and pack are external and connected to the vibrator by way of a wire. This motor is fitted having a small, away from balance, weight connected to the shaft. Because this weight rotates it throws the motor and vibrator into a small circular movement that causes the vibration you really feel.
With a vibrator which has a controller, as the power is increased the speed from the motor increases and with it both rate and strength of vibration. The rate and strength of vibration effects how stimulating you locate the sex toy. The very best effect may not be as strong and as quickly as possible. The optimum settings could very well change when your amount of excitement builds. For the best results it is worth purchasing a vibrator which can be controllable.
Different vibrators could have different characteristics and you may well find you prefer one combination a lot more than another and your preference could even vary depending on which part of the body you might be stimulating.
Recently electronic vibrator controllers have appeared which offer not merely the static control over power/speed but also enable you to select patterns of power surges and pulses. These can be extremely effective.
Additionally, there are other vibrating sex toys like butterfly stimulators and vibrating penis rings.
Other Powered Sex Toys
There are some sex toys that use different ways to provide mechanical stimulation. These usually rely on a motor that creates the sex toy continually change its shape which supplies a sort of rotational movement or causes it to be move back and forth. The forth and back movements are sometimes powered by an aura pump as opposed to a motor. The movements have already been utilized to create, for example, mechanical licking tongues, vibrators that ‘penetrate’ the vagina and mouth simulators to offer a man a ‘blow job’.
On the bigger scale plus much more expensive, you will 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 these are all offered within a bewildering array of combinations.
A standard combination in many ‘Rabbit Style’ vibrators is clitoral stimulation using vibrations and vaginal stimulation using movement and quite often a thrusting motion too.
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 example there are a selection of sleeves to put on the penis to supply different sensations for both partners while engaged in penetrative sex.
You can find rings that squeeze the lower penis and tighten the scrotum that help the man’s erection and also changes his sensations. You can find penis extenders and thickeners which may provide a man’s partner greater sensations during penetration.
You will find a multitude of lubricants that will significantly modify the feel of sex.
There are PVC and Polyurethane bedding that are water and oil proof which can be used for slippery or messy sex.
Why Use A Sex Toy?
A good real question is: how come people utilize a sex toy? Surely fingers, penises, clitorises, vaginas and tongues etc all provide great sexual enjoyment and stimulation.
Well, besides 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 a few provides experiences not possible with ‘normal body parts’ (particularly vibrating sex toys and electro-stimulation).
