How to Choose a Clitoral Vibrator

The size and shape of a clitoral vibrator is less important than the sensations it delivers.

Any vibrator can be used for clitoral pleasure and most women use their vibrator solely on or around their clitoris and vulva during masturbation. But we all have different sensitivities and responses, so getting the right kind of stimulation is key; A vibrator that is too powerful for one woman and desensitizes her might be just the thing for the next women, who needs strong intensity to get off.

So, when choosing a clitoral vibrator, it’s good to think about how much clitoral stimulation you need to become aroused or to orgasm.

If orgasms come easily to you through clitoral stimulation and you know the level of stimulation you enjoy; mild, medium, strong or wowser! – Use the ‘intensity’ filters (on the left hand side of our category pages) to take your pick of any  vibrator that takes your fancy.

If you are new to the whole idea of dedicated clitoral pleasure and have little idea of the kind of stimulation you might like, then we recommend exploring with your fingers and some lubricant first.

This way you can get some idea of the sensations you enjoy and how firmly or fluttery you might enjoy them.

It may seem like the most obvious statement in the book, but you will only achieve orgasm through clitoral stimulation if that stimulation is pleasing to you!

In the same way that a milder vibe might be too subtle for some, a super powerful vibe can be a turn-off for for others. The wrong-type can lead to frustration or  even ( horrors!) vibrator-rejection but the thing to remember is, like women themselves, vibrators come in all sorts of intensities.

In general, vibrators with a ”higher pitched” vibration make for better clitoral toys and those with a lower, heavier, deeper vibration are better for penetration.

We have rated all our vibrators for these two types of intensity: High Intense  &   Deep Throbby.

DO YOU LIKE INTENSE CLITORAL STIMULATION?

For those who enjoy full-blast power, feel they need strong, firm clitoral stimulation or have reduced sensation ‘down there’, a vibrator with a ‘high intense’ rating is likely to be the best choice.

Vibrators with a ‘Strong’ or ‘Wowser’ rating are some of the most powerful vibes know to woman, and most likely to bring about a spontaneous clitoral orgasm.

Remember, whilst our clitoral vibrators have all been chosen because they are shaped or particularly recommended for external pleasure, ANY vibrator can be pressed into clit-pleasing service, so you may wish to browse our full range.

Filtering results on our main vibrator pages to show all toys with a ‘Strong’ or ‘Wowser’ rating, will give you the most choice, whilst doing the same on the sub categories ( clitoral vibrators/rabbit/wands etc) will whittle them down…

If you are one of the many, many women who sometimes find their mind or body unresponsive to sex, keeping a really high-powered vibe buzzing away on your clitoris can be a good way of awakening your body’s response

And where the body leads, the mind will often follow…

Many Sexologists recommend a Wand Massager for women who find orgasm tricky or illusive because they offer so much more power and intensity than a battery-operated vibe.

 

 

 

 

IS YOUR CLITORIS SENSITIVE?

If you know that you are sensitive ‘down there’ and prefer a soft, subtle touch to caress your clitoris, try a soft-feel vibe that has the variety to offer gentler vibrations.

Many women swear by the clit-pleasing bunny ears of Rabbit Vibrator as they stimulate the sides of the clitoris, rather  rather directly on it.

This is better if you prefer a more diffused clitoral touch or find direct clitoral stimulation actually turns your clit off…

Many women have told us they use their regular bunny vibrator purely for clitoral stimulation ( ‘I don’t even bother with the shaft thingy!’) so for a dedicated bunny-ear clit vibrator, there’s the Rabbit Ears Vibrator.

For advice on how to choose, use  and enjoy rabbit vibes, check out our rabbit vibrator advice.

If you find a vibe too intense, simply wrap it in a piece of fabric to soften the vibrations.

You can filter for ‘Gentle’ or ‘Medium’ intensity rating on our vibrator pages.

 

 

DO YOU LIKE VARIED CLITORAL STIMULATION?

In general, most women need sustained clitoral stimulation to orgasm and on average, for 20 minutes or more.

A vibrator can certainly speed things up ( if you want it to!) but the other variant among women is the kind of consistency they need to orgasm.

Some need stimulation to consistent and changing the stimulation can, like a snakes and ladders game, take them back to square one.

Other can find they become too accustomed, or even bored, by lots of samey clit stimulation.

Thankfully, these days most vibrators offer different patterns of vibration, as well as a steady, regular buzz, as standard.

For women who want to be taken on a journey  of different sensations, a high-tech clitoral vibrator like Secret Vibrator offers 20 ( yes -20!) pulsating and escalating settings to keep you, and your clitoris, surprised and, we hope, delighted!
