There are a number of sex toys that were designed strictly with women in mind. However, most toys can be used by men or women. Further, most toys can be used for more than meets the eye. We sometimes think that our genitals are our only erogenous zones. Our whole body is erogenous. Don’t forget about your mouth, ears, neck, back, chest, bum, and perineum. These zones can be gently stroked by a vibrator.
Women generally purchase sex toys for one reason… ORGASM. And considering most women do not regularly orgasm through penis-vagina sex, it is no wonder they seek other methods to achieve orgasm. Many women experience their first orgasm with the help of a vibrator. Usually this is done through direct clitoral stimulation. When it comes to vibrators, there’s a few different types of toys available including traditional, clitoral, electric, combination, G-spot, anal, and specialty vibrators. You can read more about this in the vibrators section of this guide. We’ll focus on clitoral vibes in this section as they are the easiest tools for women to achieve orgasm.
Clitoral vibes apply intense vibrations directly to a woman’s clitoris. The only function for the clitoris is for pleasure. It is packed with over 8,000 nerve endings. So, of course it feels great when its stimulated. These toys are designed to give women powerful sensations right were they like it most.
Battery Operated Clitoral-Only Vibes
These vibes are designed to produce powerful stimulation directly on the clitoris. They are generally quite small and portable being the perfect travel size. They are hand held and come in a variety of shapes and sizes and generally don’t look like a traditional vibrator.

Electric vibrators make fantastic full body massagers, but are wonderful for direct clitoral stimulation. They produce powerful vibrations that have caused millions of orgasms worldwide. Electric vibrators generally have a large head and are never intended for insertion (although you can get insertable attachments). This vibrating head can be used to massage the labia, mons pubis, perineum and even those aching muscles. The most popular electric vibe is the Hitachi Magic Wand. This Japanese-made vibe is made from high quality materials and superior electronics. It should last for many years. It even comes with a manufacturer’s warranty if there are any problems.

Rotating Dual (Clitoral and Vaginal) Vibes
These wonderful toys stimulate both the clitoris and vaginal canal. They usually have dual action rotating shafts and pearls that cause exciting sensations. They come in a number of shapes and sizes, but most look like a traditional vibrator with a ‘branch’ coming off of it to stimulate the clit. The 'branch' is often in the shape of an animal with rabbits and hummingbirds being the most common. You insert the vibe until the clitoral stimulator reaches the clitoris. These vibes are all battery operated and generally have different levels of vibrations and rotations. Many of these dual vibes are shaped for G-spot stimulation. These vibrators are great for any occasion. They are so versatile that they really are a must have for any toy box.
