The Vibrator - A More Playful Sexual Experience

You know that episode of Sex and the City, where Charlotte swears off men and then forms an intimate relationship with the magical "bunny", guaranteed to make her orgasm every time?

bunch of vibrators to hover around
Did you know that vibrations increase the chances of a body-rocking orgasm?

She bemoans that men are not as reliable as her vibrating toy, when it comes to getting her off - and in matters of the heart. Amusing, yes, but these toys are so more than just a single gal's answer to a dry spell (partner-wise).

Used right, vibrators can be a kinky way to bring pleasure with a partner to a whole new level.

A Brief History of Vibrators

With men going off to war in the 1900s and the clearly sexually-stifled Victorian Era shutting down women's desires for frequent orgasms in the 1800s, it was like one long and collective dry spell, a dark time in history.

All humor aside, however, many women during this time period were diagnosed as suffering from "hysteria", depression, fatigue and anxiety -- common symptoms of a loss of sexual appetite.

Dr. Mortimer Granville, that wiley genius who invented the first electromechanical vibrators in the late 1800s, produced them as a response to sexually stimulating women on a regular basis - without developing carpal tunnel syndrome.

Not Just A Solo Activity

Far from being a symbol of the malady of the "sexually-unfulfilled woman", however, vibrators are incredibly fun when incorporated into intercourse.

Yes, it started as an autoerotic tool intended for, ahem, sexual "maintenance", the way you might tweeze a couple of hairs down there between waxing appointments.

This article writes from the point of view of a woman with a man but this could easily be substituted for same-sex couplings and partners.

Getting creative with vibrators and your partner means that while he's stuffing you from behind, you can pop that baby on your clitoris, go to town and leave your hands free to grab his ass and pull him deeper into you.

You could also use these toys as a kinky way to have a mutual masturbation session, or put on a show for him while he watches. 9 out of ten doctors agree: this will get him hard in no time flat.

A Man's Best Friend

Curing "hysteria" aside, this vibrating toy's use can be as varied and naughty as its user's imagination.

Think about it: It was essentially invented because doctors were tired of digitally stimulating a woman to orgasm. If you're chuckling and saying, "typical", let's stop right there for a second.

You can use this battery-operated toy to start in the front and make your way to the back. In other words, like a dildo, slim vibrators meant for anal openings can help you and your partner transition to anal sex.

The deep and stimulating vibrations will help increase the chances for a body-rocking orgasm, which loosens the muscles around the anal opening, allowing for easier penetration.

If you're pairing up with a guy, holding it against his perinuem is going to send surefire shockwaves of pleasure.
