Terms you always wanted to know but may have been afraid to ask
There are an enormous range of adult toys but most of them fall into several broad categories:
Clitoral- Powerful vibrators recommended for external use on the clitoris such as a bullet.
Vaginal- Usually somewhat phallic shaped used for vaginal stimulation. Comes in variable textures, materials, colors, and sizes.
Dildo- phallic shaped, non-vibrating, can be made of plastic, silicone, rubber, vinyl, pyrex, or latex.
Waterproof- Can be used in the water, such as in the shower. Although marketed as waterproof, most should not be submerged.
Rabbit- Two pronged for stimulation of both the labia and the clitoris.
G-spot- Similar to the traditional vibrator but with a curve tip. The curve makes it easier to stimulate the g-spot.
“Undercover” Vibrators- Vibrators discreetly shaped as every-day objects, such as lipstick tubes, cell phones, or candy bars.
C-Ring (AKA Cock-ring)- A ring that is put around the base of the shaft of the penis and is used to increase orgasm and prolong ejaculation.
Vibrating C-ring (AKA Vibrating Cock-ring)- Vibrator (sometimes cordless) inserted in or attached to a c-ring, usually for stimulation of the clitoris during intercourse.
Dual-Action Vibrators- These vibrators are designed to stimulate two erogenous zones simultaneously or independently. Usually found in the form of a clitoral stimulator and vaginal stimulator.
Triple-Action Vibrators- These vibrators are designed to stimulate three or more erogenous zones simultaneously or independently. These provide stimulation to the vagina, clitoris, anal regions and/or g-spot.
Male Stimulator Sleeves (AKA Whack-it Jacket or Pocket Pussy)- Primarily designed for a man to use for masturbation, but can also be used as an aid during oral sex, manual stimulation or intercourse.
