What’s the difference between a dildo and a vibrator?

Dear Rebecca,


I am an older woman (in my late 60’s) and have been widowed for over 10 years now. I’m just starting to rediscover myself sexually and am interested in trying a vibrator or dildo. I’m not quite sure what the difference is though. Please could you tell me more?

Thank you,

Geraldine

 

 

Hi Geraldine,

Thank you for your email. How wonderful that you are rediscovering your sexuality! You’ve definitely come to the right place to find out more about dildos and vibrators. There are lots of different types of dildos and vibrators and it often comes down to what you like, or what you’re in the mood for.

A dildo is a phallic shaped toy that is usually intended for penetration during masturbation or sex with a partner. They can be made of different materials and can come in slightly different shapes or textures.  Some are quite simply shaped and some look more realistic, it depends on your preference.

For a first dildo, you might like to try these:

The Tantus Adam O2 Silicone DildoThis dildo is similar to a real penis in that it has a soft fleshy outside with a firm inner core.

The Tantus Silk Small Silicone Dildo – This dildo is small, slim and smooth and so perfect for a first dildo.

A vibrator is much the same as a dildo except that it has a motor in it that makes it vibrate. Most vibrators have different speeds for different types of sensations. Some vibrators also have an appendage that stimulates the clitoris while the rest of the vibrator is penetrating the vagina.

For a first vibrator you might like to try these:

The Loving Joy Aspire – A fabulous vibrator that can also be used as a dildo, simply remove the vibrating bullet. You have three speeds to choose from plus the curve at the end makes it easy to handle on your own.

The Vibe Therapy Sutra 7 function G-spot vibrator – Beautifully made and has lots of functions too. This vibrator is specially designed to stimulate your G-spot during penetration.

Wishing you lots of sexy fun with your new toys!

With love and delight,

Rebecca
