    Bullet Vibrators

    Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator

    The most popular choice for a first toy and ideal for couples, these miniature vibrators are built for precision and their name comes from their resemblance to spitzer bullets in size and shape. Because they're usually 2-3 inches long, they usually use smaller LR44 watch batteries or N batteries but there are rechargeable varieties like the Lelo Mia 2. Bullet vibes are ideal for women who are looking for direct clitoral stimulation during masturbation or sex. The small size of bullet vibes makes them ideal for use while having penetrative sex without causing obstruction to either partner.

    Butterfly Vibrators

    Lovehoney 10 Function Venus Butterfly Vibrator

    Also known as strap-on vibrators, these vibes are worn a bit like you would wear a pair knickers to give hands-free vibrating stimulation directly to your clitoris. Butterfly vibrators get their name from the shape of the clitoral stimulator which is shaped like a butterfly with its wings spread. Some butterfly vibrators also have an insertable shaft to offer simultaneous internal and external stimulation. Butterfly vibrators are good for masturbation or use during sex.

    Clitoral Vibrators

    Lovehoney Powerful Pocket Vibrator

    The term ‘clitoral vibrator’ refers to any vibrator designed with stimulating the clitoris as its main aim. Their shapes are tailored for direct clitoral stimulation and offer shapes from a simple point-like tip to a cup that surrounds the clitoris. Clitoral vibrators tend to be larger than bullet vibrators to accommodate larger batteries and bigger motors, making them more powerful. They can also be used to stimulate a larger area, making them great for grinding up against.

    Rabbit Vibrators

    Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator

    The all-singing, all-dancing vibrator. Rabbit vibrators come in a variety of styles but they all have one thing in common - a clitoral stimulator that branches away from the main shaft, allowing for simultaneous clitoral and internal stimulation. Some rabbit vibrators include a special rotating or thrusting motor in the upper shaft that allows the tip of the shaft to spin in circles, rock from side to side or thrust upward to better simulate the sensations of penetrative sex. This prevents the need to move the vibrator once it has been inserted and ensures clitoral contact is never lost.
