The variety of sex toys is surprising. Sex toys vary from absolutely male or simply female sex toys to toys that can be used by both sexes. There are also some sex toys that can 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 become more sensitive or give a different feel to ‘normal’ sex. Other sex toys give an ‘environment’ to variations in sex, for example so called orgy bed sheets. Sometimes they are used to help a person who has difficulty with unaided sex to achieve sexual satisfaction. However most sex toys give another way to straightforwardly stimulate the male or female genitals to achieve sexual satisfaction.
Using sex toys can give new experiences and variation in the sexual experience. It can also give a fantasy component to enhancing or revitalizing a 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 given by the sex toy.
Types of Sex Toys
Vibrating Sex Toys
Probably the most well known sex toys 情趣用品 are ‘vibrators’ which, as the name suggests, give stimulation of the genitals using vibration. They are mainly used to stimulate the clitoris, but may also be used to stimulate any other part of the female body or that of a man’s.
The simplest of these are pencil or wand shaped (however 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 into a small circular development which causes the vibration you feel.
With a vibrator that has a controller, as the force is increased the speed of the motor increases and with it both the rate and strength of vibration. Both the strength and rate of vibration effects how stimulating you find the sex toy. The best effect may not be as strong and as fast as possible. The ideal settings may well change as your level of excitement builds. To get the best results it is worth buying a vibrator which is controllable.
Different vibrators will have different characteristics and you may well find you favor one combination considerably more than another and your inclination may even vary depending on which part of your body you are stimulating.
More as of late electronic vibrator controllers have appeared which give not only the static control of force/speed but also allow you to select patterns of force pulses and surges. These can be effective.
