Try before you buy is not an option when it comes to sex toys – thank goodness.
So Healthista thought they would do the research for you – which was no hardship trust us.
Vibrators are now rightfully seen as a way for women (and men) to revitalise their sex lives. Maturbation helps people to understand their own bodies and sexual needs better, in addition to improving sexual health too.
Covid-19 has impacted almost all aspects of our lives, with sex being no exception. Indeed, a new survey conducted by leading sex toy shop Peaches and Screams, found that 75 per cent of the 20,000 surveyed buyers said they have been using sex toys more during the pandemic.
Solo-play has also become more popular with 45 per cent revealing they masturbate a few times a week, while 34 per cent revealed they do it on a daily basis.
Some people need a really powerful toy to feel satisfied
You’ll also learn about your own sexuality and stimulation preferences, meaning you’ll be able to communicate what you like more easily with your partner, boosting your chances of being able to climax.
When looking for a vibrator, clients pay attention to the brand, quality, noise and power. When it comes to vibration, not everyone is going to be the same. Some people need a really powerful toy to feel satisfied, while others will run for the hills at anything stronger than a light rumble.
Tried and tested, Healthista has had a look at as many variations as we can, to bring you the best of the best. Here are 11 of the best vibrators for women – you’re welcome…
