The Lowdown On Sex Toys
There is a vast range of sex toys available for both men and women. All you have to do is choose which one is right for you.
Why use a sex toy? Are the fingers, penis, mouth, tongue, clitoris, vagina etc. not sufficient to have pleasurable sex? If yes, then why should one use sex toys?
Good question, but sex toys can elevate your pleasure during the act, drive your imagination wild, provide variety in your sex life and that extra stimulation which is not possible in normal sex. It also can help men get an erection or, if you are a female, arouse your genitals. It is not only about the variety they provide to the act it is about the zing they add to your relationships.
The usual expectation is that sex toys 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.
The most common devices are the vibrating sex toys that provide arousal of the genitals through its movement. They can either be used to arouse the clitoris or the male genitalia. Most of them are in the shape of a penis and are battery operated but some of them come with an adaptor attached to them with a wire. They have a small motor inside them which when rotates provides the vibration.
Some of them have a controller, which controls the power of the vibration. The strength of vibration depends on your personal taste and mood. There is no optimum speed that you have to stick to. At various stages of your sexual experience, you may feel like changing the strength. It also depends on which piece of your body part you are arousing.
Butterfly stimulators and vibrating penis rings are some of the other types of vibrators available in the market. The ways to provide stimulation can be many. There are some devices that change shapes or moves back and forth by use of an electric motor. Mostly it is the air pumps that motorize the back & forth movements. Some of them are mechanical licking tongues, vibrators that penetrate the vagina and mouth simulators to give a man a ‘blow job’. If you have the cash there are more expensive sex toys, such as the thrusting and vibrating dildos.
There are also sex toys available that provide combined stimulation. The most common of them all is the rabbit style that uses movement & thrusting motion to arouse the clitoris or the vagina. Adding textures to the surface of a sex toy for that extra pleasure is not uncommon. Some of them have spikes while others have ridges on the surface to elevate pleasure.
A completely different type of sex toys provides a sensual experience while having sex rather than stimulation. There are a lot of penis sleeves on the market with a lot of differences. Some are for increasing penis width, penis length, stimulating vaginal walls, some have vibrators attached, some stimulate the clitoris and some the anus of the partner.
The assortment of lubricants available in the market aiding sex is worth mentioning. Also there are PVC & Polyurethane bed sheets that are oil proof & waterproof for greasy or messy sex.
Newbies can start with a simple vibrator. If you enjoy the experience then move on to the more sophisticated ones. With time you will know what best suits you.
