Sex-Positivity – Self-Love – Starting the Revolution
Let’s get back to business (or pleasure, as the case may be). We already talked about bullet vibrators, but what if you’re bored with your bullet or want to try something else with your clit? Well, readers, there are lots of options.
The first option is to try a finger vibrator. Vibrators like the Fukuoku, the Nanovibe Finger Vibrator, and the Ophoria Finger Vibe are all built to slip onto your finger to be used more flexibly during masturbation and/or partnersex. The great thing about finger vibes is the range of motion you’re afforded: unlike with other vibrators that you have to hold, finger vibes just slip onto your hand and are ready to go. They’re small and very quiet, but very powerful for their size. Like bullets, they require batteries and are rarely rechargeable.
Finger vibrators provide a similar experience to masturbation or partner-play with a hand, because of their shape and design. They just add the extra fun and stimulation of vibration!
However, not all clitoral vibrators are small, and not all are shaped like fingers.
Some vibrators, like the Laya Spot, are shaped to follow the curve of your body and rest on your clitoris. Others, like the Hitachi Wand, are huge and bulky but iconic for a reason: they’re incredibly powerful (and can come with attachments that make penetration possible as well!). Still others, like the Jimmyjane Form 2, are shaped to go around the clitoris, and not rest directly on it, for women who prefer more indirect stimulation.
You can use clitoral vibes just like you use your hands: to stroke, tap, circle, or rub your clit, or you can mix it up! Hands don’t have to be involved. You can put the vibrator on a surface (for example, your bed) and move on it to your heart’s content. Many clitoral vibrators are waterproof, so you can take them into the bath or the shower if you prefer. But make sure the vibe is submersible first, because you don’t want a broken vibe on your hands just because you read the label wrong!
You can use them alone, or with a partner! Many partnersex positions can easily be adapted for simultaneous clitoral vibration.
Remember: the clitoris is not the ONLY erogenous zone on the female body. Even though clitoral vibrators aren’t usually meant for penetration, they can easily be used to stimulate other areas of the body. You can slide them over your nipples, around the vaginal opening, around the anus, and anywhere else that feels good.
The best way to research types of clitoral vibrators is to go to a woman-friendly sex shop like Babeland or Good Vibrations and browse their vibrator selection! Likewise, the best way to figure out what kind of vibrator stimulation works for you is to experiment! Since vibrators are, of course, not free, you can read reviews online and figure out which vibes might provide a good experience for you.
Coming up next week, I’ll talk about G-spot vibrators, and penetrative vibrator use in general!
