What’s Better: A Vibrator or a Dildo?

Newcomers to the world of sex toys might find their first visit to a shop or adult store website to be a bit overwhelming as there are so many items from which to choose. Words like “vibrator,” “dildo,” “stimulation” and “simulator” appear in bright letters, beckoning shoppers towards them. Vibrators and dildos, the two most common sex toys, are often thought of as synonymous tools, but they are different. Let’s take a look at how they are similar and how they vary.

What is the Story with Dildos?The Realistic Dong UR3

“Dildo,” simply put, is a term to define any object used to penetrate the vagina or anus. However, if you want to get more technical, dildos are generally thought of as devices that are shaped like penises intended for vaginal insertion. Dildo purists believe a true dildo has no mechanical or moving parts.

Dildos are, perhaps, the oldest sex toy, according to archeological research. The oldest dildo is believed to date back to the paleolithic era. Dildos are also depicted in several examples of Ancient Greek art.

Modern-day dildos can be made of a multitude of materials, including rubber, glass or plastic. Modern materials, such as “Cyberskin” mimic the feel of natural skin. Rubber and silicone dildos are more flexible than other materials.

Dildos can be used solo or with a partner. Some couples enjoy using a dildo that is purposely shaped to stimulate the g-spot as part of their sexual experience.

Vibrators are a lot like dildos, but they incorporate a component that vibrates or pulsates for additional stimulation. Vibrators come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, and may be intended for insertion, external stimulation or both. In fact, the sheer variety of vibrators currently on the market can be a bit daunting.

The vibrator was originally marketed as a medical tool, and used by doctors to treat “female hysteria.” In 1902, Hamilton Beach patented the first commercial vibrator. The popularity of television shows like Sex and the City brought vibrators into more mainstream conversations in the 1990s.

Today, vibrators come in all shapes and sizes with an incredible variety of functions. Some are remote controlled, while others can even be controlled by phone apps for long-distance lovers. Some twirl and spin while also offering clitoral stimulation, while others are more straightforward and simplistic.

Because of the varying types and stimuli, just about anyone can find a vibrator that will work for their needs, whether they plan on using the device alone, or with a partner. Vibrators are a fun and accessible way to spice up one’s sex life.

So, which is better?

There is no simple answer to this question. Both vibrators and dildos can be successfully used solo or with a partner. What will work best for you? depends on what feels best for your body and your partner’s body. The pulsations and vibrations of a traditional vibrator offer more stimuli than that of a dildo. On the other hand, dildos allow the user to feel in complete control of the action.
