What is it?

A clitoral stimulator or vibrator is something like a regular vibrator but is not used for insertion (like a regular dildo). Instead, it is used to stimulate your clitoris. While some are covered with a soft silicone outer cover, others may be made of other materials that add to the experience. Apart from that, these vibrators are usually very small in size, are very discreet, and come in various shapes and sizes. What's more, some of them are also fashioned to look like commonly used items (like a lipstick or cell phone, etc.), so there's no embarrassment if someone finds it on you. Here's everything you need to know about the clitoris (the female sex organ that can make orgasming so much better)

Types

There are a number of types of clitoral stimulators; the conventional ones have an on and off button and buttons to increase and decrease the intensity of the vibration. Some also come with a button to change the kind of vibration.

Clip on vibrators or hands-free vibrator: These are essentially those vibrators that are hands-free. So, they either have a strap or are in the shape of a butterfly that helps them clip on just above your clitoris. All you have to do is get some batteries, switch on the device and get going.

Vibrating panties: These are panties that come with an in-built vibrator and an external remote with which you can change the speed and settings.

Handheld vibrators: These are small, discreet vibrators that are meant to stimulate only your clitoris. Handheld, these vibrators come in the rechargeable and one-time use variants.

Penis rings: Made for those times when you and your partner are having some fun between the sheets; this kind of vibrator is fitted onto the erect penis of a man and has a little bulbous portion that vibrates and stimulates the clitoris. The penis ring also helps stimulate the penis, helping the man orgasm too. But that being said, you can use this device on your own too. Just use the ring portion to hold on the vibrator, switch it on and get your jollies.

How do you use it?

Quite simple to use, a clitoral vibrator does not need too much technical knowledge. All you have to do is switch it on, place it on your clitoris and masturbate. It is usually advisable not to insert this kind of vibrator, as they are rather small, and you may find it difficult to get it out of you.

Cleaning and care

Keeping your vibrator clean is essential. After every use make sure you wash it with warm water. Usually water resistant, running your vibrator under some warm water is the best way to clean it. Of course, you should use a mild, non-corrosive soap too. A very corrosive cleaning agent can erode the delicate silicon around the vibrator and damage it.
