It’s time to jump right into a discussion about sex toys. Let’s break down each sex toy into categories.

 

Clitoral Stimulation Toys

Most women that struggle achieving orgasm during sex simply need extra help with clitoral stimulation. Vibrators (typically named as vibrating bullets or eggs) are designed to be small enough to stimulate the clitoris without interfering during intercourse. While they are mainly used in a woman’s clitoral area, they can be used either externally or internally, depending on personal preference.

 

These toys have options on how to power them – either stand-alone (cordless) or attached to a cord. The cordless types (shown on the left) are powered by either a battery or by a rechargeable cord, and have the buttons to control the settings on the vibrator itself. The corded type of vibrator (shown on the right) usually has the control buttons on the battery pack, away from the actual vibrator. To give you more information to help you with an informed decision of buying, they will be rank in order for durability, cost, and battery life.

 

Durability (best to worst)

  1. Rechargeable bullet
  2. Stand-alone bullet
  3. Corded bullet

 

Cost (expensive to cheapest)

  1. Rechargeable bullet
  2. Corded bullet
  3. Stand-alone bullet

 

Battery life (longest to shortest)

  1. Rechargeable bullet
  2. Corded bullet
  3. Stand-alone bullet

 

Rechargeable bullets are dependable to use multiple times before needing to recharge. They are also typically waterproof and last longer than the average bullet. There are also more options for more vibration patterns. The downside is that they cost more.

 

Corded bullets can be used together as a couple, where the partner gets to choose which vibrating setting that the woman may enjoy. They usually have several to choose from. This type of vibrator usually isn’t expensive, but the major downside is that they aren’t always durable. The most common issue is the fact that the vibrator is attached to a cord, and the cord typically shorts or disconnects; leaving you with a useless toy.

 

Stand-alone bullets are easy to conceal and convenient to use. They are typically the cheapest of all the toys. Be aware that most on the market require an odd size battery; not the typical AA, or AAA. You may have to splurge on a special battery that costs more than a standard size. They also don’t have much variety on the types of vibrations they can do. The only variations they usually have is with the vibration pattern itself, not the intensity of the vibration.

 

G-spot Stimulation Toys

Many women have yet to explore the mystery of the G-spot. Refer to Different Types of Orgasms to learn more about whether you have experienced an orgasm through G-spot stimulation or not. These toys are recognizable because they curve at the end of the vibrator. They are designed that way to reach the G-spot in the vagina for stimulation, in order to climax more powerfully.

When you are purchasing one, you are able to buy them as battery operated or rechargeable. Rechargeable will be more expensive, but it will stay charged for longer and for multiple uses. Pro tip: find a vibrator that is firm. Some G-spot stimulation toys are flimsy at the neck area. Once you insert the toy, it becomes harder to control where the stimulation ends up.

 

Vaginal Vibrator

Some couples use a vaginal vibrator to help the woman become more aroused during foreplay. Most of the newer selection of these toys are waterproof and cordless. Some have a curve to them like the one you see above, which allows for a little G-spot stimulation. If you find a toy that is similar to this shape but doesn’t vibrate, it is known as a dildo.

 

This particular toy, pictured above, is available for purchase through O! Beehave. It’s the first product that we’ve introduced to our clientele. You may click here to purchase it. A bonus eBook is included with the vibrator, to show the versatile ways that a couple can use it together. The eBook includes information on both internal and external uses.

 

Dual Stimulation Vibrator or Rabbit Vibrators

Dual Stimulation Vibrators are nicknamed rabbit vibrators because when a company in Japan first manufactured the toy, they purposely made them look like rabbit ears to make the vibrator appear more friendly. One distinction to make between these and other vaginal vibrators is that the rabbit vibrators have rabbit ears that reach the clitoral area, maximizing clitoral stimulation.

This particular toy has clitoral vibration and vaginal vibration and since it curves at the tip, it can help also stimulate the G-spot. Most newer models come as waterproof and rechargeable.

 

Couple Vibrators

One of the most popular couple toys on the market is this type of vibrator, which can be worn by the woman during intercourse. It stimulates the clitoris, G-spot, and shaft of the penis at the same time. These can be found in the same shape as you see above, or it can be bought as flexible vibrator that can bend and contour to each of your unique body shapes.

 

C-Rings

C-Rings are typically placed on the penis, at the bottom of the shaft. As you can see in the pictures, there are several different types available. The general purpose of a c-ring is to increase sexual pleasure for both male and female. This is done by reducing blood circulation in the penis which keeps the male aroused for a longer time and also pleasures the woman by making the penis a little larger. You don’t want to use these toys without lubricating properly.

 

The first toy, pictured on the left, is a basic model of a c-ring. These can found in different sizes and stiffness of materials. It’s recommended to buy from a company that teaches you how to measure correctly to create a comfortable experience during sex and prevent penile damage from a misfitting ring.

 

Next, the toy pictured in the middle is a c-ring with a vibrator attached. The vibrator is in a spot to provide pleasure in two specific ways. One is to stimulate the female by providing vibration to the clitoral area. The second is to stimulate the male, by turning the vibrator around and placing it in the testicular area.

 

The last c-ring, pictured on the right, has two rings to reduce blood circulation for both the penis and testicles. It is recommended when putting this one on, to first put the smaller ring on the penis, and then when you are comfortable, to pull the larger ring down over the testicles.

 

In the event that the male has problems with erectile dysfunction, play around with these toys to see if it helps decrease premature ejaculation or a flacid penis before or during intercourse. Some men have found these to be a tremendous resource, while other men don’t. Just remember that each person is different.

 

Male Sleeves

Male sleeves come in many shapes and sizes. Too many times, these toys get a bad reputation as only being used as masturbation sleeves. While they may be used for that, this can be a wonderful toy to use as couples. Consider using this product if sex isn’t an option (after a having baby, surgery, or even during a menstrual cycle). Whatever the reason may be, these sleeves can be used to bring the male to orgasm. First and foremost, DO NOT use these without lubricant. These toys can and will rub a man raw and leave very unpleasant memories.

 

When using these toys, you can experiment with different strokes and speeds. You can even use the sleeve by rubbing up and down on the penis or change the sensation by using one hand to keep the sleeve at the base while using the other hand to pull on the other end creating a suction feel. Women joke that this toy is a blessing to avoid arthritis in the hand or lockjaw.
