Vibrators vs. Dildos

It’s a common mistake for people to use the terms “dildo” and “vibrator” interchangeably. They are of course similar in that they are both sex toys, however they have very distinct and significant differences.

Dildos are super basic and are considered the original sex toy. In fact, the first known sex toy was a dildo made of stone and is estimated to be over 30,000 years old! Lucky for us, we’ve evolved to make them much more pleasurable and safe.

Dildos are phallic shaped toys that mimic an erect penis and are designed for simple penetration. Much like an actual penis! In, out, in, out, in, out… BASIC! Sometimes that's all that is needed or desired for G-Spot or prostate stimulation.

Vibrators on the other hand, are much more evolved and supercharge the pleasure by adding, you guessed it, vibration!

Vibrators come in a ton of different designs from a basic classic shape, to Rabbits, Eggs, Wands, Clitoral Stimulators, and even hands free butterfly stimulators, and many others.

The design of the vibrator will dictate the type of stimulation it gives you. Whether it be external clitoral stimulation, internal vibrations, or both simultaneously. If clitoral stimulation is your thing, then a vibrator is definitely your best choice.

In Conclusion...

Dildos are basic, phallic shaped toys designed for simple penetration and g-spot or prostate stimulation.

AND...

Vibrators are more advanced, and come in a plethora of designs that vibrate. They are great for all kinds of unique vibrating stimulations, internally and externally.

Choosing Your First Vibrator

Where to Start

It's easy to browse sex toys online and read various reviews to get an idea of what type of toy you may like. However, because there are literally hundreds of thousands of sex toys to choose from, this also makes choosing a good sex toy much harder. From the huge array of buzzing, osculating, penetrating, tickling, massaging battery operated or rechargeable objects of pleasure, where do you start?

Seventy percent of women reach orgasm through clitoral stimulation alone, rather than sexual penetration, so for most beginners a vibrator is the best place to start, rather than a dildo. While that narrows down your choices, there are still many types of vibrators to choose from and not all of them are ideal for beginners.

Bullets & Eggs

Bullets and egg vibrators are very small and usually fairly powerful for their size. Which is why they are great first Vibrators. They are discrete and fairly affordable for first-time buyers. They come in many designs and range in speeds from single to multiple speeds and vibrating patterns. All are fairly simple to use and are perfect for a first time buyer. We recommend the Nimbus mini vibrator, but for someone willing to spend more, we highly suggest The Rabbit Ears from The Rabbit Company.

Pocket Rockets

Pocket Rockets are the best selling small clitoral vibrators on the market. They look like mini pocket flashlights and are very discrete, affordable and simple to use. Basic pocket rockets are one speed only, which is usually enough power for a younger woman. We recommend multiple speed rockets because you have more variation and you won’t outgrow them. These are a bit more expensive, but worth the investment. We recommend the Pocket Rocket Plus by Doc Johnson for a great clitoral vibe.

Magic Wands

The Hitachi Magic Wand is the best selling and most powerful vibrator ever made, but it is often way too powerful for a first-time buyer. However, body massagers are much smaller and have more variations in speed. Our customer's favorite wand vibrator is the Mini Wand Massager. This vibe is great for the beginner and expert vibe enthusiast as it is multi-speed, but also very discrete and quiet.

A Few More Tips

  • Be prepared to shop around. While buying online is discrete and we offer free shipping, we recommend coming in to the boutique where our knowledgeable staff can answer your questions and steer you in the right direction.
  • No need to feel uncomfortable shopping at our boutique, our staff of women treats the toys as mere electronics and you are a valued customer.
  • Test the strength of a vibrator on the tip of your nose. Your nose has a similar sensitivity as your clitoris, so if it tickles, that tells you it will work for your clitoris as well.
  • Make sure the sales person puts in batteries and tests it for you before you take it home when you purchase in store.
  • Stay away from jelly and rubber and choose plastic, silicone, glass, stone and elastomer.
  • Many vibrators are not waterproof. Keep that in mind when you purchase, if you intend to use it in the bath or shower. There is a difference between splash-proof, waterproof, and submersible. Don't be afraid to ask our staff for more help.

Rabbit Vibrators 101

Most people have indeed heard of a "Rabbit" and no not Peter Cotton Tail, but the kind that rubs a woman "the right way". The Rabbit gained so much popularity from its debut in the infamous TV show Sex in the City, but if you're unsure, let me explain.

What is a Rabbit?

The Rabbit Vibrator gets its name from the cute little bunny ears attached to the clitoral stimulator. A Rabbit style vibrator is no ordinary vibrator part of the popularity of Rabbit Vibes is the dual stimulation it gives you. There is an internal vaginal part of the Rabbit "the shaft" and a clitoral part (either ears that flicker or a solid piece for more pressurized stimulation). So while you are getting internal stimulation you are simultaneously getting clitoral stimulation as well. Doesn't get much better than that!

Why should I choose a Rabbit?

One of the greatest things about Rabbits is that there is an endless amount of varieties to choose from. From the shaft rotating, multiple speeds, different types of vibration, size, color, material, shape and so on and so forth. If your like a lot of other women and you cant enjoy an internal orgasm without clitoral stimulation then a Rabbit is perfect for you. If you don't want to buy separate toys for separate needs i.e. a toy specifically for clitoral stimulation and a toy specifically for internal stimulation then a Rabbit is perfect for you. If your not fully convinced still that a Rabbit is the right kind of Vibrator for you then take a closer look at our selections!
