The range of sex toys is surprising. Sex toys change from purely male or purely female sex toys to toys which can be used by both sexes. In addition there are some sex toys that may also be considered sex aids or marital aids.

The Purpose Of Sex Toys
Some sex toys aid the man's erection, stimulate the feminine genitals to be more sensitive or offer a different feel to 'normal' sex. Other sex toys offer an 'environment' for variations in sex, for instance so named orgy bedding. Sometimes they are utilized to assist someone who has difficulty with unaided sex to attain sexual satisfaction. Most sex toys provide a new way to directly stimulate the male or female genitals to achieve sexual satisfaction, however.
Using sex toys can provide new variation and experiences in the sexual experience. It may also provide a fantasy element for enhancing or revitalising a partnership.
The usual expectation is that a sex toy provides direct stimulation of the genitals in foreplay and/or during sexual intercourse or as a means to obtain orgasm through only the stimulation provided by the sex toy.
Types of Sex Toys
Vibrating Sex Toys
Probably the most recognized sex toys are 'vibrators' which, because the name suggests, provide stimulation in the genitals using vibration. They are mainly used to stimulate the clitoris, but may also be used to stimulate any other part of the female body or that of a man's.
The easiest of such are pencil or wand shaped (though normally thicker compared to a pencil). They frequently come with an internal battery (or two) which powers a small electric motor. Sometimes the battery controller and pack are external and connected to the vibrator with a wire. This motor is fitted having a small, from balance, weight attached to the shaft. Because this weight rotates it throws the motor and vibrator in to a small circular movement which in turn causes the vibration you feel.
With a vibrator that has a controller, because the power is increased the rate in the motor increases with it both the rate and strength of vibration. Both the strength and rate of vibration effects how stimulating you find the sex toy. The best effect may not be as strong and as quickly as possible. The optimum settings might change as your amount of excitement builds. For the best results it really is worth buying a vibrator which can be controllable.
Different vibrators could have different characteristics and you could well find you like one combination much more than another as well as your preference could even vary depending on which part of the body you are stimulating.
More recently electronic vibrator controllers have appeared which provide not merely the static control of power/speed but in addition enable you to select patterns of power pulses and surges. These can be extremely effective.
There are also other vibrating sex toys including butterfly stimulators and vibrating penis rings.
Other Powered Sex Toys
There are some sex toys that use other ways to provide mechanical stimulation. These usually depend on a motor that makes the sex toy continually change its shape which offers a kind of rotational movement or makes it move back and forth. The forth and back movements are sometimes powered by an aura pump as opposed to a motor. The movements have been used to create, for instance, mechanical licking tongues, vibrators that 'penetrate' the vagina and mouth simulators to offer a guy a 'blow job'.
On a bigger scale and much more expensive, you can find 'sex machines' that incorporate thrusting and vibrating dildos.
Combination Sex Toys
So far we have covered vibrating, thrusting and moving sex toys. As you may have guessed these are all offered in a bewildering selection of combinations.
A common combination in numerous 'Rabbit Style' vibrators is clitoral stimulation using vibrations and vaginal stimulation using movement and sometimes a thrusting motion as well.
Many sex toys add varying textures with their surfaces; a dildo or vibrator might have ridges or soft spikes or even a rippled shape.
Sensation Change Sex Toys
Some sex toys instead of provide vibrating or moving stimulation, modify the feel of sex.
As an example there are a selection of sleeves to set over the penis to provide different sensations for both partners while involved in penetrative sex.
You will find rings that squeeze the base of the penis or tighten the scrotum that help the man's erection as well as changes his sensations. There are penis extenders and thickeners which might give a man's partner greater sensations during penetration.
You will find a multitude of lubricants that can significantly change the feel of sex.
There are Polyurethane and PVC bed sheets which can be water and oil proof that can be used for slippery or messy sex.
Why Use A Sex Toy?
A great question is: why do people utilize a sex toy? Surely clitorises, fingers, vaginas, penises and tongues etc all provide great sexual stimulation and enjoyment.
Well, aside from therapeutic uses (eg erection assistance), sex toys can drive the imagination (being taken by a machine), provide variety (new methods to do old things), vary the stimulating effects in otherwise normal sex (penis sleeves) and some can offer experiences difficult with 'normal body parts' (particularly vibrating sex toys and electro-stimulation).
How To Start
If you have not tried a sex toy before and don't yet have an idea of what you might like, try one of the simpler vibrators first. Probably you may take advantage of the experience and then begin to wonder the other delights can be obtained with additional sophisticated vibrators along with other sex toys ...
Find you do enjoy sex toys try out a few others and find what suits you if you. Most importantly, have some fun trying them out!
