Pssst...want this information in a watchable, video-format instead!? Check out our YouTube video down below!


Myth #1. "They are only for women"

Cal Exotics COLT 10-Function Vibrating Stroker

People of any gender can experience the stimulating pleasure that vibration can bring. Yes, they are super popular to use on the clitoris but they can be used all over the body including the penis, nipples, perineum, anus, and more!

Some toys - like strokers & rings - are specifically designed to stimulate penises and other parts of the body. Other, more universal toys - like bullet vibes & massage wands - can be used anywhere on the external body to provide good vibes.

Myth #2. “They are soooooo loud”

We-Vibe Tango X Powerful Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator Midnight Blue

Okay, some are, but not all of them! If you were hoping for one on the quieter side, try looking for one marketed as “whisper-quiet” and/or a vibe with more of a rumbly motor rather than a buzzy one.

Myth #3. “They will damage or decrease nerve ending sensation in the clitoris”

Shots Toys VIVE Enora Dual-Ended Wand Vibrator & Massager Purple

Nope! The nerve endings in the clitoris (and other parts of the body) can get “used to” the sensation during a play session, but it won’t last and it’s not causing any damage. Instead, take it as a sign to change vibrators or switch things up altogether!

Myth #4. “They all look anatomically correct”

Cal Exotics California Dreaming Venice Vixen Dual Vibrator Yellow

Does this bright beauty look like a penis to you!? Some vibrators are realistic, but just like our personal preferences, there are many unique-looking vibrators out there in various shapes and styles.

Myth #5. “They are so big!”

In fact, many are actually quite small in size, also making them super discreet if tossed into a backpack, purse, or pocket!
