today’s sex education lesson: dildos and vibrators

Vibrators and dildos are sex toys that can be used for masturbation and/or sex. All different people use vibrators and dildos in a variety of ways–either alone, with a partner or a group of people.

Vibrators :  to increase stimulation to a desired body part, be it the clitoris, vagina, anus or any other erogenous body parts. They are either battery operated or electric and they are either phallic-shaped (for internal or external use) or shaped like a back massager (for external use).

A dildo, on the other hand, is completely controlled by the speed and tempo of the person using it. They, too, are generally phallic-shaped. Dildos can be used by hand or by strapping it on to a body with a dildo harness and "wearing" the dildo in order to have sex with penetration.

There are no tried and true statistics for how many people use vibrators or dildos..


If a person is old enough to purchase a vibrator and dildo, doing so through a reputable sex shop will give her the chance to talk to salespeople who are knowledgeable, personable, and willing to answer questions about different brands, materials or anything else pertaining to vibrators and dildos.


Sex experts recommend keeping those vibrators or dildos clean. It's important to:

·  Put a condom on the dildo or vibrator if it will be inserted into a person's anus. Equally important is remembering to switch condoms each time the usage is switched from anus to vagina.

·  Know what kind of material the vibrator or dildo is made of, because different materials often require different types of cleaning. Silicone, however, is a very popular toy material, and it can be washed with soap and warm water. Allow it to air dry.

·  If it is an electric toy, do not submerge it in water. Instead, clean it with a soapy, damp washcloth.
