With the frantic pace of modern life, our vibrators really do need to work overtime
A survey conducted for Superdrug Online Doctor revealed that 88 per cent of women masturbate, carving out an average of two 13 minute sessions per week. And for the 12 per cent that have let self pleasure slip under the radar, a multi-tasking vibrator could be just the thing to help them jump back on the proverbial ‘wagon’.
This classic sex toy could not only improve your health, but render everything from your early morning alarm call to your evening curled up with an audiobook an infinitely more enjoyable experience. What’s not to love?
And even if you don’t orgasm, masturbation is said to improve:
- circulation (boosting memory)
- release endorphins (which helps to relieve stress)
- decrease blood pressure and fights menopausal symptoms including dryness and narrowing of the vagina
- Release the feel good hormone oxytocin
Could an orgasm a day beat your customary apple when it comes to keeping the doctor away? It has to be worth a try. We’ve made it easy for you to slot yours into your schedule with our pick of the best multi-tasking vibrators on the market.
1. The one that ‘wakes you up with an orgasm’
Imagine, if you will, a world in which your alarm clock induces joy, rather than misery. That’s the promise of Little Rooster, the vibrating alarm clock – worn inside your underwear (but outside your body) – that wakes you up with gentle vibrations which gradually increase, over the course of five minutes, to your chosen level. There are 30 power levels, the first 27 of which are, apparently, virtually silent. It’s phthalate-free and comes complete with travel lock, one year warranty and, yes, a snooze mode.
The toy has won rave reviews from users, some of whom have taken advantage of its portability to liberate it from the confines of the bedroom – like the woman who set hers to go off twenty minutes into a blind date. Well, it’s certainly one way to ensure a satisfying evening out.
2. The one that jazzes up your décolleté
Going away? Then you might prefer something a little less conspicuous. Billed as an ‘intense intimate pleasure accessory’, the Crave also doubles up as a chic pendant. This is one vibrator that won’t leave you red-faced at airport security, and with three vibration intensities and a pulsing mode departure lounge waits will take on a whole new dimension. Handily Crave is also USB rechargeable, and will look completely discrete sticking out of your laptop as you wait to recharge it’s batteries.
3. The music lover’s choice
The Lelo Siri 2 boasts 8 vibration settings associated with the rhythms of different styles of music – classical, reggae, rumba, folk, hip hop, soul, techno and jazz. But set it to ‘sound responsive’ mode and its vibrations will sync with the sounds in your ambient environment – from your favourite CD to your lover’s voice and even, apparently, your own sighs! It’s guaranteed to make your next music concert an unforgettable experience…
Not quite ready to risk a public ‘When Harry Met Sally’ moment? Why not run a bath and crank up the sound system, instead? It’s 100 per cent waterproof… Keen singer? You can even incorporate the Lelo into your vocal warm up – according to vocal coaches, it’s a great massage tool for the larynx!
4. The one that lets you FaceTime… from the inside out
Have you ever wondered what an orgasm looks like from the inside? Well, wonder no more. The Svakom vibrator, dubbed the ‘vaginal selfie stick’, boasts a built-in illuminated HD camera, allowing you to create a very personal sex tape. And, thanks to its FaceTime compatibility, you can even share the footage with a partner in real time! If you haven’t channelled your inner voyeur yet, now could be the perfect time.
