What is a vibrator?
Vibrators are electromechanical devices which produce vibrations, and are intended to be used in contact with the body to stimulate the nerves and tissue. Vibrators come in many shapes and sizes, and can be used in a variety of ways, including externally or internally to the body. When used for sexual stimulation (rather than for massage or other therapeutic use), vibrators are generally applied to the erogenous zones, and in particular to the clitoris, vulva, vagina, anus or penis.
Popular because of their compact size and approachable appearance, these external vibrators typically have a rounded capsule shape. The most common application is to touch or press the vibrator to sensitive areas on and around the clitoris and vulva. The ICONIC BULLET is a popular take on this design, and the INDULGENCES Pleasure Set includes a waterproof Bullet vibrator.
Introduced over 25 years ago, these were among the first compact vibrators available. Typically a little larger and more powerful than their more modern cousin, the Bullet. Intended for external use, the most common application is to touch the tip of the vibrator to sensitive areas on and around the clitoris and vulva. Popular because of their combination of compact size and strong vibration. The ICONIC POCKET is one of the best known versions of this type of vibrator.
Only recently introduced to the market, these were the first hands-free vibrators to become widely available. Intended to be worn at the base of the penis with the motor positioned for contact with the clitoris during intercourse, they are an easy way for couples to share sensation. Unlike typical vibrating rings which are designed for a single use, the ICONIC RING features replaceable batteries for a long life.
These small and medium sized vibrators are intended to be held externally against the body, and typically feature ergonomic curves for contact with the clitoris and vulva. Among its many functions, FORM 6 can be used as an External Vibrator. Smaller external vibrators such as FORM 2, LITTLE CHROMA and LITTLE SOMETHING can be used solo or be held in place against the clitoris during intercourse.
These are generally very simple forms intended for insertion into the vagina for internal stimulation. They vary in length and diameter to suit different desires and body types, and can be used for external stimulation as well. LITTLE CHROMA and LITTLE SOMETHING are smaller Smoothies, while the ICONIC SMOOTHIE is a larger, yet approachable design. The larger end of FORM 6 can also be used in this manner.
These vibrators have both a shaft for insertion and an adjacent vibrating shape for external stimulation. First created in Japan over 25 years ago, the ICONIC RABBIT is one of the best known versions of this type of vibrator. The shaft oscillates, and beads rotate beneath its surface, adding to the sensations. When the shaft is inserted into the vagina, the ears of the rabbit come in contact with the clitoris..
These vibrators feature a curved tip intended to stimulate the G Spot. When inserted into the vagina, the tip of the vibrator can be positioned to contact the front wall (toward the belly) of the vagina which for many is a pleasurable sensation. The curvature of the small end of FORM 6 is excellent for this use.
These vibrators feature a curved tip intended for anal use and/or to stimulate the male prostate gland. When inserted into the anus, the tip of the vibrator can be positioned to contact the front wall (toward the belly) behind which the prostate is located. The curvature of the small end of FORM 6 is well suited to this use.
