With the frantic pace of modern life, our vibrators really do need to work overtime
Love using vibrators of all different types? You’re not alone. A survey conducted for Superdrug Online Doctor revealed that 88% of women masturbate, carving out an average of two x 13 minute sessions per week. And, for the 12% that have let self-pleasure slip under the radar, using one of the best vibrators or a classic rabbit vibrator could be just the thing to help them jump back on the proverbial ‘wagon’.
And, even if you don’t have an orgasm, masturbation is said to improve your health. This means it can help:
- 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…
But what if vibrators were not just about pleasure. What if 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 about that?
We’ve made it easy for you to slot yours into your schedule with these multi-tasking vibrators….
1. The one that’s ideal after a workout: Lovehoney Classic Mains Powered Magic Wand Vibrator, £49.99
With a round, bulbous head and flexible neck, this vibrator looks like a microphone. But, sadly, you can’t use it for karaoke. Yet, if you have tired and stiff shoulders stopping you from enjoying yourself, then this pick is for you. While an orgasm can help make you feel relaxed, especially when you are stressed, only a good massage will help relieve achy joints. No one around to lend a hand? Step forward, a magic wand vibrator. These handheld heroes have evolved from massager products which athletes used to treat aching limbs. So, it’s no wonder they can help achy muscles after a workout. Magic wands are becoming so popular as they are a great choice for people who enjoy intense stimulation. Once you feel better, you can use it in a more intimate area and prioritise your own orgasm every day. Win, win!
2. The one that reads you an erotic bedtime story: Vibease Bluetooth Erotica Rechargeable Responsive Knicker Vibrator, £99.99
Calling all bookworms! Loved reading Fifty Shades of Grey? Then you’ll adore this small-but-mighty clitoral vibrator. Not only does this toy have five intense vibes which really hit the spot, but it can sync up to some top erotic audiobooks (via an app). This means you can listen along to a saucy story, hands-free, and your mind and body will both be stimulated at the same time. It’s something new to try if you have a drawer-full of vibrators already. You can even close your eyes if you want to! There’s definitely no more being turned off as you stop to turn the page.
3. The one that wakes you up with an orgasm: Little Rooster, £79
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.
All the vibrators here are popular, but this one 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.
4. The one that jazzes up your décolleté: Coco de Mer Crave Vesper Vibrator Necklace Gold, £180
Going away? Then you might prefer something a little less conspicuous. And, thankfully, not all vibrators look like sex toys. 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.
5. The music lover’s choice: Lelo Siri 2 Luxury Clitoral Vibrator, £129.99
The Lelo Siri 2 boasts eight 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% 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!
6. The one that lets you FaceTime from the inside out: Svakom Black Siime Multiple Speed Vibrator with Built-in Camera, £93.78
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.
