The difference between a Dildo and a Vibrator

New to the world of sex toys and want some sex-pert knowledge? You’re in the right place.

When choosing your first sex toy, it can be a bit daunting and one question that we often hear is “what really is the difference between a vibrator and a dildo?”

If you want it put in simple terms, then a vibrator vibrates, sending tingles to your love parts, and a standard dildo is used for pleasurable penetration.

But, which is best?

Well, the answer is both. Vibrators and dildos both work well for pleasuring; it all depends on your personal preference!

So, lets break it down.

Hopefully after a lesson from Ricky you’ll know exactly which product you will be choosing for your orgasmic helping hand.

Let’s split the most popular toys into three sections: the standard dildo, the vibrator and the vibrating dildo. These three types of products come in many different shapes and sizes, pleasuring those who can only handle a small length to those who like the ultimate girth - no one is left out of here!

All three are equally as good at creating the greatest sex experience, if you know what you enjoy and how to use them properly.

First, ask yourself the question, do you like penetrative sex or clitoral stimulation more?

If you answered clitoral stimulation, then we first move on to the humble vibrator. A firm favourite amongst sex toy lovers for an orgasmic experience.

Vibrators

Vibrators are powered by a motor that makes them, well, vibrate. These vibrations are often concentrated around the clitoris, sending feel good waves through your private parts. A large number of women only reach climax through the clitoris, making the vibrator a woman’s best friend when it comes to orgasming.

It can be used for some alone time and even during intercourse with a partner for direct enjoyable sensations to the clitoris.

Whether you’re wanting a small vibrator to inconspicuously stash, or you’re looking to pack some pleasure for your weekend away, the bullet vibrator is a small and discreet companion. It may look modest, but it packs an almighty vibrating punch.

Wand vibrators are great for those looking for the most powerful of vibrations. A few seconds of the wand vibrator on full strength and you’ll be well on your way to pleasure heaven.

Take a browse at all the vibrator options on offer and pick your perfect match.

Dildo

Next, let’s move on to those who prefer some penetrative pleasure.

Used for penetrative masturbation either solo or with a partner, a dildo usually doesn’t vibrate and resembles a phallic shape. Unlike vibrating sex toys, standard dildos don’t come with a motor and are designed for penetrating orifices for sexual gratification.

You can find dildos with veins and ridges that look and feel so realistic the only give away is they aren’t attached to a human. Big ones, small ones, curved ones and even doubled ended ones, the dildo possibilities are endless! Simply start browsing and find the shape, size and material that is right for you! If only it was that simple when you were browsing for a partner, eh?

Vibrating Dildo

If you’re a little indecisive and enjoy penetrative pleasure, g-spot stimulation and clitoral excitement, then the good news is there are toys for you all-or-nothing pleasure seekers.

If you’re stuck between choosing a vibrator or a dildo, then maybe the best option for you would be a vibrating dildo as you get the best of both worlds here. Vibrating dildos often end with orgasmic bliss and are certainly a toy you should have in your sex toy collection.

Much like the standard dildo, vibrating dildos come in an array of all shapes and sizes to create a tailored pleasure experience. Why not try Ricky’s Ultimate Wand?
