Finger vibrators vs other types
Mini finger vibrators are, to put it bluntly, pocket-sized vibrators. The handy formats open up several possibilities. On the one hand, they are well suited as a travel vibrator. On the other hand, they are smaller than most sex toys; talking about classic dildos, dual-headed sex toys, and anal sex toys. So, because of how small they are, they are a good choice for beginners who want to explore their body or its erogenous zones more closely.
Even for women with a petite build, it can be pleasant to “start small”. This can also be done well with finger vibrators. Simply pull them over your fingertips and then use them where you want them.
Also, they are the cheapest types of vibrators. You can get one for the price of, say, a cup of coffee at some cafés.
Features to consider when choosing a finger vibrator
A finger vibrator is a modern sex toy that anyone can use. No matter whether you are a beginner or a little more experienced in using sex toys, the vibrator is a nice addition to sex with your partner. Especially if you have not yet had any experience with toys, the device is a perfect start to slowly get to grips with the various toys. And if you’re still wondering how to choose yours, here are some features to consider.
Power and runtime
Power is a constant in vibrators. What then differentiates one from the other is the way it is powered and the type of power it generates. Talking of power, you have a choice between the replaceable batteries and the built-in rechargeable batteries. Replaceable battery-powered devices are suitable for travels, for example, for holiday caravanning, especially if you don’t have access to electricity. Their runtime varies according to the battery capacity. For finger vibrators, the advice is to choose one that can last between 30 minutes to 90 minutes, or the Lovehoney Ignite Finger Vibrator with 100 minutes runtime.
Materials and flexibility
Material and flexibility are central when choosing a vibrator. Because this not only influences the compatibility but also our sensual impressions. The feeling on and in the body, the grip, and also the smell influence the feeling of pleasure.
Medical silicone is now the most widely used material, as you can see by the Fifty Shades of Grey Secret Touching Finger Ring Vibrator
or the GLUVR Finger Vibrator
. There are several reasons for this. Initially, it is mostly well tolerated. Of course, allergic reactions cannot be completely ruled out, or at least unlikely. It is therefore worthwhile to use a silicone vibrator to get started. It adapts quickly to body temperature and is also relatively easy to care for. The material or its surface on the vibrator is not very susceptible to nucleation. A vibrator made of medical silicone is also great in terms of hygiene.
Other materials used for flexible to firm fingertip vibrators include Plastics (ABS, TPE, PU, Jelly PVC). There are other rigid materials used. These include stainless steel, glass (rarely, more often used in dildos), and metal, for example, aluminum.
Each material has its advantages and disadvantages. What matters here is what you can tolerate and find pleasant. For example, some materials conduct heat or cold well. What some may find uncomfortable, others use for additional pleasure. Other factors such as lubricity also result from the materials. The same applies to shape and design.
Speeds and vibration patterns
In this aspect, we’re talking about the speed level and the different vibrational patterns. While some finger vibrators like the BASICS Vibrating Finger Bullet can come with just a one-speed pattern, others such as the Lovehoney Ignite Finger Vibrator can come with as much as 17 or more. It all depends on how naughty you’d like to get.
The vibration of the finger vibrators can give you a lot of pleasure and be of good use. Various models can be handled differently and have different settings. Most finger vibrators have different levels of vibration. So you can choose the one that’s right for you to feel the pleasure intensely. It is also no problem to change levels during lovemaking because it works very simply by moving a lever on the device.
Due to the different settings, a small finger vibrator is something for everyone, no matter how strong the vibration is needed. You can of course also use two-finger vibrators at the same time, each with a different level of vibration. There are no limits to your imagination and you and your partner are allowed to do what you enjoy.
A splashproof vibrator can easily withstand a few splashes of water or allow you to use lubricant gel. But it is not suitable for going to a “diving station”. This is only possible with waterproof vibrators. These are processed in such a way that no water gets inside. This qualifies them for use in the bathtub, for example.
The design of a finger vibrator is also important. In terms of design, ergonomics, shape, and aesthetics are involved. Some, like the GLUVR Finger Vibrator and the Ohmibod LoveLife Rev Finger Vibrator, are ergonomically designed to be fitted into the finger while they caress the walls of your sensitive regions.
If you want girly options, models such as the BASICS Vibrating Finger Bullet and the BASICS Finger Ring Vibrator, are designed in attractive pink and purple colors.
Certain materials can be found in vibrators, especially in the lower price segments. Products made from plastics such as ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) or PU (polyurethane) can be found here. Inexpensive plastics and processing add to the health risks and possible restrictions in several ways. On the one hand, despite care, the likelihood of potential hygiene deficiencies increases. The structure of cheap plastics allows germs and bacteria to settle in the vibrator. This not only results in health risks, but it also increases the likelihood of an allergic reaction.
Also, inferior materials and workmanship are often noticed by their smell, which can be very intrusive and unpleasant. In the case of vibrators of inferior quality, this does not dissipate over time. If you notice this feature as soon as you open the packaging and it does not disappear even after a thorough cleaning – hands off! In addition to the obvious flaws in material and workmanship, the smell can turn out to be a pleasure killer if you try to use it.
But how can you recognize good quality vibrators when you buy them? First of all, the price can be a good guide. By investing in a premium model like the Fun Factory Be One Finger Vibrator, you can be assured of quality and safety as it is made of safe silicone and soft ABS.
Of course, you don’t have to spend a fortune on a vibrator. A higher price is also not an automatic guarantee of a flawless product.
In principle, excellent products can be found in the price range between $20 and $80.
