Sex toys are full of many settings that work automatically. Usually we associate these settings with a range of powerful vibrators when discussing clitoral stimulation. Simply choose the intensity and speed and you're away. Through developments there are now plenty of toys that lessen the amount of effort required to enjoy their use. One category that is often overlooked are thrusting vibrators. Thrusting vibrators are basically miniature handheld sex machines!
It's understandable that people may be hesitant to include self-thrusting toys within their sex life. It's common knowledge that many women (approximately 70%) cannot reach orgasm through penetration alone. This is why clitoral vibrators or rabbit vibrators are so popular, bridging that biological gap within heterosexual relationships.
Although despite the beliefs of the sexually caring yet tunnel visioned modern man, it's not always about the clitoris. Sometimes a girl simply wants penetration and lots of it! So put away the clit sucking pulsation control vibrators, take off the remote controlled vibrating panties and give self-thrusting adult toys a chance.
How do they work?
Like many sex toys, the name is pretty self explanatory, they thrust. It's the era of automation and this toy has given it's best shot at finally putting male hips and their penises out of employment.
Self thrusting vibrators come in two main variations, plain dildo or rabbit. The difference being that a rabbit accompanies additional clitoral stimulation with each stroke. For some toys, the actual base of the thruster needs to stay in place. Therefore many thrusters will come with a suction-cup base or type of stand to encourage penetration at a constant angle. Otherwise the device will be used for plain old hand held pleasure. Thrusters are utilised for anal or vaginal penetration, the difference being that anal vibrators are shorter in thrusting depth and have more of a tapered insertion. Vaginal thrusters will be longer in depth and will mimic the design of a classic dildo.
The purpose of thrusting is obviously to provide constant vaginal or anal stimulation through penetration. Depending on the design of the toy or the angle of penetration, users can feel additional g-spot or p-spot stimulation.
Using it with a partner
Sharing a thrusting vibrator with a partner is a unique experience. One misconception that men have towards sex toys is that they are being replaced, this belief birthed mostly from realistic dildos. Therefore, it's understandable that introducing a self-thruster may bring up false feelings of replacement. Instead, these toys provide partners with an opportunity to give their partner new forms of pleasure. With penetration being taken care of, partners can better focus on providing stimulation to other areas. Maybe you never could really pinpoint how your partner's clitoris enjoyed being stimulated whilst being penetrated, now you have the chance. Maybe, someone always had the fantasy of double penetration or a threesome yet was never comfortable bringing someone external from the relationship into the bedroom, self-thrusting vibrators can satisfy this fantasy without that discomfort!
Because many thrusters are remote controlled, one partner can tease the other one with different thrusting speeds. Alternatively some partners, or BDSM practitioners in dominant submissive relationships (D/s) will use self-thrusters with bondage restraints. Using an increase in speed as a kinky reward or a sensory overload.
Are they the same as a partner?
No, of course not and they're not meant to be. Another reason why men should not be worried about sex toys replacing them. Thrusting vibrators can only provide a constant motion and do not mimic the change in angle, speed and depth that a person could. Not to mention the passion, communication and intimacy involved… While constant penetration may be all some people desire, others may find using a self-thruster a bit boring.
Important things to remember
Ensure to keep your sex toys clean. If using a thruster for vaginal penetration a thorough clean with sex toy cleaner and water is necessary. However, if using the vibrator for anal play, then it's recommended to cover your toy with a condom. If you want to put the toy in multiple orifices during one session using condoms and removing them before switching orifice stops the spread of bacteria, keeping things body safe!
Always discuss the inclusion of any sex toy before any use. Thrusting vibrators have more potential to be intimidating than a standard vibrator. Sometimes devices that are self moving can simply make people a bit nervous, a sort of sexual spook. If you are the one whose introducing the sex toy or the idea of using the toy. It's important to know why you want it and what worries your partner might have. This is a great way of reinforcing trust in a relationship and when you get around to the fun part, will make the entire experience more intimate!
