Learn About Vibrators 101
Now that you’ve gotten an understanding from our Vibrators 101 course on some of the various type vibrators that exist, it’s time to get into the nitty gritty.
These little babies are also known as “bullets”. They are typically no more three inches in length and are designed specifically for clitoral stimulation. While the name of these vibrators come from the shape and size of a bullet, they can also come in more modern designs and textures.
This style vibe is exactly as its name implies; discreet. The purpose of the design is to ensure that no one can tell by looking at it what power it really holds. Though they will come in a variety of designs, lipstick and mascara tubes are some of the more common designs.
When it comes to vibes, the sex toy industry doesn’t beat around the bush. This kind of vibe is oval in shape and looks like, well… an egg! More often than not, this older style vibe will come with a remote with a cord attaching them. This vibes is usually used for clitoral stimulation and will have a deeper, more rumbly vibration sensation.
To review from our Vibrators 101 course: G-spot massagers are intended for internal use. Most will have a slim, straight shaft with an egg shaped bulb on the end. This bulb, once inserted, will massage the g-spot that is located about 2-3 inches inside the opening of the vagina. Being that the g-spot is part of the clitoral network, stimulation in this area can result in an intense orgasm.
Also known as “wands”, this style toy look similar to a microphone with a bulbous vibrating head and a shaft to maneuver. If you want a lot of power, the original design that plugs into the wall is going to be your best bet. With technological advancements, however, these do also come in rechargeable options. The frequency at which these vibrate offers a deeper, rumbling sensation that is intended for external stimulation (though you can get attachments for internal stimulation if you are looking to really rock your world).
Like the human penis, the penis shaped vibes will come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and grooves. You will have the option to choose from vibes of this style that take batteries or are rechargeable. There will also be the option of a more realistic feel, a firmer TPC, or a soft silicone.

An oldie but goldie, the pocket rocket refers to a very specific style and design of vibe. Coming in around four inches in length, the design of this vibe will come three small, metal nubs on top. It will also usually have a removable number cap which will offer two stimulating textures. These will typically take one AA battery and have only one speed.
With a longer shaft for insertion and a smaller vibe on top, this style toy will offer both internal and external stimulation at the same time! Rabbit vibes tend to be what most people think of when they first considering getting themselves a toy. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and functions so try to keep that in mind while shopping.
If you are looking to mix things up with your partner and let them have control over your vibe or you’re looking for a hands-free ride, these bullets are just what you need. Remote control vibrators will come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Remote capabilities can vary from a simple on/off or can allow the user to customize their own patters (or, in some cases, vibrate to the beat of music!).
These vibes are longer than your standard bullet and range in size from about 4-7 inches. These are primarily used for internal stimulation, though they can also be used externally if you have any mobility/dexterity issues. These typically tend to be on the slimmer side and are usually smooth.
This is a fantastic feature that more ad more toy companies are offering now. This feature offers a seal or barrier which prevents moisture from getting inside the machinery of your toy. One thing to note is that while many toys will advertise that they are “waterproof” or “water resistant”, this does not always mean they are water submersible. The difference being that waterproof toys are safe to take in the shower, but not in the bath.
As the name would suggest, these vibrators are worn in the vagina or anus or will clip to underwear for secret clitoral stimulation. More often than not, this style of wearable vibe will come with a remote, which can either be controlled by the wearer or given to a partner for discreet public stimulation.
