Are you ready for the definitive glossary, an A to Z of sex toys? If you’ve ever wanted to know all there is about adult play things, then this is the place to be. Without further ado…
And we’re opening with things you stick up your derriere. Anal toys excite your bottom in ways you can only imagine.
App Driven Sex Toys
Your phone controls your vibrator, like OhMiBod’s blueMotion or the We-Vibe 4 Plus. You can be in the same room or across the world, just open the app and start tapping!
We’re going to try really hard to write this definition without mentioning 50 Shades of Grey…oops..ok. Balls are inserted into your vagina and the weights exercise your kegel muscles/pelvic floor so your insides can be as tight as a virgin’s – well, nearly, it will be an improvement anyway!
Following on from anal toys, a butt plug goes into your behind and can be the source of much pleasure or pain – depending on your partner!
Vibrating bullets are named so because of their size. They are mini vibrators, great for clitoral stimulation during sex. I’d like to say they are about the same size as a real bullet but as I live in the world of Oz and we have gun control I don’t know what the size of a bullet is. Make love not war people!
A clitoral vibrator is the key to women’s orgasms. Most women can easily experience a clitoral orgasm with the right vibrator providing clitoral stimulation. Most reliable for orgasms are the new-ish breed of clitoral stimulators: The Womanizer and The Satisfyer, also the two with the worst names!
Cock rings, love rings, couples rings, gentlemans rings, we think that is all they are known as. These sit on the penis and can be worn to keep him harder for longer and/or to provide stimulation to us ladies during sex.
Couples Vibrators & Adult Toys
C is also for couples vibrators and sex toys. Mimi De Luxe is passionate about couples, because let’s face it, love makes the world go round. And sometimes you might need a bit of extra excitement or even a bit of help in the lovemaking department.
There is a difference between dildos and dongs, although some adult shops don’t differentiate between them, here at Mimi De Luxe we do. A dildo is does not have balls, where as a dong is made to really represent the male genitalia.
Dongs are dildos with balls. If you are thinking feisty you are wrong. Think phalic.
Welcome to the 21st Century. Electro stimulators use an electro magnetic pulse which produces intense micro currents which stimulate your nerve endings. Take a look at Nalone Electro Wand or Mystim.
E is also for eggs. Vibrating eggs can be used for massage and stimulation. Some old skool eggs are connected with a wire to a battery pack. Then there are the Tenga eggs which are entirely different to vibrating eggs and are used for masturbation. They break apart like a real egg and slide over the penis.
Isn’t it obvious? Pop one onto your finger and easily massage all over your partners body. Most will slide either on or around your finger and are battery operated. They are a great foreplay tool as they can get you really warmed up!
A G-Spot Vibrator does just as the label says. It massages your g-spot. These vibrators specialise in finding the holy grail of women’s orgasms.
Just like love can run hot and cold, so can your sex toys. Metal and glass toys can be warmed up or cooled down for pleasure and pain.
The often neglected essential sex toy. Lubricant can not only make intercourse better, but also greatly improve your experience with a vibrator. Water based lubricant is the most versatile as it will work with all vibrators. Oil based and silicone lubricant is great for water activities, but check with your toy before using a silicone lube as they can erode silicone products.
Traditionally a mains powered all over body massager. Made famous by the Hitachi Magic Wand in the 70’s as women around the world discovered they were really just as good as delivering orgasms as providing an all over body massage. And the magic wand is a favourite for BDSM fans including a certain Mr Grey.
Is there really a difference between a massager and a vibrator here? No, afraid not, it’s just marketing speak for those of you who can’t bring yourself to say VIBRATOR. But on the plus side you can tell your wife you’ve bought her a Massager and it will provide an excellent all over body massage, let her discover what else it can do and she might just love you forever.
Nipple clamps, nipple tassles, nipple stimulators, even Burlesque pasties to add some bling to your nipples. Playing with your nipples is an often forgotten source of erotic pleasure.
Fun Factory have created a cross-bread of pulsators called Stronic. These three vibrators all pulsate, so we can’t really call them vibrators. Can you remember how to count in German, Eins, Zwei, Drei…well you’ve just named all three of them! Following on from that, many others created thrusting vibes.
Oh Samantha, thank you for introducing the world to rabbits. Rabbit vibrators are called rabbits due to the little ear that sticks out the front. They are genius really as one part stimulates you internally (G-Spot) whilst the other part stimulates you externally (Clitoris). As clitoral stimulation is what most women need to achieve orgasm so the rabbit works well for most of the female population.
Remote Control Vibrators
All the rage in 2013 and early 2014, it looks like remote control vibrators are losing ground to apps. We envision remote controls will be replaced with apps on your smart phone in the coming year. Remote vibrators are great for couples as both parties are involved.
A strap on is usually a dildo worn by one person to stimulate another person. Sometimes strap-ons are connected to a harness or built in to undies, or they are cleaver enough to be inserted into the giver.
Think electric bucking bronco with a penis sticking up. Now add some vibrations. That is pretty much a Symbian. It’s like a woman’s version of a blow up doll, only better and much more powerful. You can rent them or purchase for around $3k!
The new universal charging system, most brands are switching to USB chargers instead of a plug so you can take your toy on holiday and not worry about having to find an adapter.
Take your toy in the shower, bath or hot tub! Waterproof vibrators make your sex toys really versatile. If you’ve never a quickie with your rabbit in the shower then you should. It will really get your day off to the right start!
