the ergonomics of the vulva

There's an album title.

As for the thing itself, I'm still stuck on "How do you use *that*?". It looks like it would make an interesting new kind of dildo, but I suspect that for me the vibration function wouldn't get used much, based on the controls I can see. I very much prefer escalating vibration, plain "bzzz" really isn't my thing 99% of the time.

Unless I'm way off base, as pictured, the bottom bit penetrates to massage the G-spot and pelvic floor muscle, and the bulge at the top, below where the controls are, massages the area around the clitoris. Similar idea to a Rampant Rabbit, but without looking like a cock with ears.

Info on masturbation techniques is, er, always useful *blush*. I'm still very much trying to figure out what works.

I know the feeling, for me it has to change (pulse is good, is there one with a pulse that you can set to a speed that triggers you?) The ones that are inside and out sort of work like that, in that the circular internal movement causes the buzzy bit to move around and simulate a pulse... but it's all too complicated.

That's why I suggest two at different speeds. Think of it as two different sound waves, sometimes they clash, sometimes they meet together, sometimes they just sound terrible, but the net effect is a sort of a pulse on top of being stimulated at two different frequencies. It does for me! Took years to discover though, and you run the risk of being so tied up with both hands that it's hard to relax.

Can you get alternatives to plain "bzzz"? Cos that only works for me in the first 30 seconds of a new Duracell. (I used to be known for saying "there's nothing like a new Duracell" but we shall gloss over that.)

For "how do you use it" I am thinking you can use the small end externally and the large end internally, but not both at once unless you are anatomically unusual.

Is it bad that my first thought was, "Oo, what we really need is a USB-enabled sex toy, and maybe the vibe could run off the DC input, and then you could adjust the vibration and pulse on the fly with a program and write scripts."? :)

I think these are the closest you're going to find at the moment.... ;)

Okay, well

1) that sounds so awesome, and

2) The Bit That Shows You More About The Journalist Than The Product:

creating a foreplay-like experience

because remember, masturbation is only meaningful as a prelude to heterosexual penetrative sex.

Is it bad

Yes. But I'd buy one anyway :)

Shame I'll never be rich, really. If I had a few thousand to spare I would buy one of the USB ones linked further down for myself and for a dozen or so close friends :)

My last vibrator had about six different settings; there were two escalating ones, a couple of pulses, slow bzzz and fast bzzz. It was just a garden variety jelly-willy one with a metal core under the silicone sleeve, I can't remember the name of the firm I got it from. Peter Somethingor Paul Something I think; they're the people who do "real" Amm Summers parties.

I mostly don't bother with vibrators, though, and not that often with dildos either. I think two would just distract me - I'd feel like I was trying to choreograph a swordfight with cucumbers in the dark :) If I need extra I just tend to use my fingers.
