Vibrator vs. Dildo

JessBed_edited-1

I’ve got a confession to make: I’m cheating on my vibrator with a dildo.

It’s not that I’m bored with her – after all, we’ve only been together for about five months, and with her eight different modes and five speeds ranging from “soft flutter” to “intense pulsation”, boredom is but a distant memory. But lately, I’ve been craving something different, something deeper.

Seriously readers, I know you’ve heard this before, but if you don’t own a sex toy that sends thundering waves of bliss through your entire body, you should consider investing. Not that fingers aren’t fun too. I mean, they’re always there, right?

Until recently, I had surprisingly little experience with sex toys. My first vibrator was actually a gift when I was 19. I broke my wrist during my first and only time snowboarding, which forced me to take six weeks off from the coffee shop where I worked. One night, my co-worker Kendra called me to the café because she had a gift for me. She wrote this long, rambling card that talked about how it was something very valuable that I could use with only one hand, something every lady over 40 owns, and so why not be 20 years ahead of the game, and so on.

Here I thought she was cleverly insinuating it was a vibrator, but that it would end up being a back scratcher, so I opened it in front of everyone – and turned beet red when indeed, lo and behold, a pearly pink phallus. And while I did enjoy my time with that toy, it lacked the intensity I craved and the curve needed to stimulate my G-spot in ways that I didn’t even know were possible. Furthermore, it guzzled batteries like a Hummer guzzles gas.

Avid readers may remember my trip to the Everything to do with Sex Convention back in January. It was there that my very wise companion turned me on to Lelo, a Swedish company that prides themselves as one of the world’s leading providers of the most stylish and luxurious intimate lifestyle products. They even name each of their toys, and came up with a whole new term for them: pleasure objects.

And that’s where I met Ina, “a sleek, dual-action vibrator that reaches out seamlessly to the most erogenous zones… motors in each pleasure point to allow simultaneous or alternating vibrations as and when desired, tantalizing her user before delivering prolonged feelings of satisfaction, time and time again.”

All of Lelo’s products are made from ultra smooth, FDA-approved body-safe silicone. And, perhaps best of all, they solved the battery problem: Ina comes with her own charger! Plug her in for two hours and she’s good for up to four hours of pure bliss.

If I had to give one small piece of advice to Lelo, the controls aren’t as intuitive as I want them to be. After all, who wants to be fumbling for a button in the throes of passion?

But still, even with all that going for her, it was time to try something with a little more weight and girth. Meet the Pure Wand from Njoy. Crafted from 1.5 pounds of medical grade stainless steel, the Pure Wand packs quite a punch. If anyone tried to break into my apartment, one crack over the head with the Pure Wand and they’d be regretting their decision to match with this vixen!

A double-ended dildo with a 3-inch ball on one side and a mighty 5-inch ball on the other, it features what can only be described as the perfect curve. And my G-spot rejoiced! Run it under hot water or pop it in the freezer for a spine-tingling chill. And this one’s great for the guys too since it doubles as a prostate massager.

Someone recently asked me which was better, but it’s like comparing apples and oranges. They’re both great at what they do, and the sensations they provide are plentiful but different. At the end of the day, if I’d known I was coming home to either one of these two fabulous friends, I would have left the bar earlier… satisfied, disease-free and without questions.

If anything in here has piqued your interest, or if you have questions about finding the right toy for you, I recommend speaking to Phong at Joy Toyz.

  • Thanks for the review! We’re really big fans of the Lelo too. Definitely thought about the njoy wands for awhile, and am really looking forward to adding them to the collection. Thanks for the inspiration.
