Remember the Cone? It still exists, but LH doesn't sell it anymore - it's a large, cone shaped external vibe with all sorts of fancy vibration patterns.
A boyfriend bought me one yeaaars ago, during my quest to learning to orgasm, and I discovered that I need strong precise stimulation so the cone didn't work for me.
Now I finally have a reliable way of getting myself off (it's an electric toothbrush and a tingletip) I am making friends with my cone. Because it might not get me there all the way, but it's brilliant for when I'm writing (or reading) smut and don't actually want to get off that fast.
(the tingletip is great, but it's a little like getting kicked off a ledge. Its only setting is HOLY SHIT)
Just thought it was funny that after years of searching for better, faster, stronger to be able to get myself off, now I'm looking back to gentler vibes, and found a great use for a toy that's been sitting around for about five years now..
