The category of sex toys for women is a bit of a misdirection on the part of retailers and marketers. It's true that there are sex toys for women, insofar as there are many sex toys that women can use and enjoy. But sex toys aren't usually made for specific categories of people. Most sex toys can be used by anyone on any part of the body. Some sex toys are made for specific body parts (for example a penis ring or nipple clamps) and other sex toys are made for specific sexual activities, but even these toys can be used in different ways by people with very different bodies.
It can be easy to forget that not all women have the same body parts. We may assume that when we talk about women's bodies we mean a body with breasts, a clitoris, a vulva and vagina. But this isn't always true (the same goes for men's bodies). When we compartmentalize sex toys by the sex or gender of the user, everyone loses, because the truth is that any woman might love almost any kind of sex toy, and the same is true for all other genders.
With that caveat in mind, let's consider some of the main categories of products that are marketed as sex toys for women, which means, in the minds of sex toy marketers, sex toys that are designed for people with a vagina and a clitoris.
Because women have a wide range of preferences in terms of clitoral stimulation a good clitoral vibrator will be variable speed, and allow the user to easily manipulate where the vibrator is touching and how much pressure is applied. Some clitoral vibrators come with straps and can be worn on the body. They rest just above the clitoris and the straps are often designed to allow for penetration play at the same time.
A vibrator suitable for vaginal penetration should be of a material that's safe to use internally, relatively smooth and seamless, and easy to clean properly. Some vibrators that are safe for vaginal penetration may also be safe for anal penetration, but not all of them. Far more women use vibrators for clitoral stimulation than penetration. A notable exception to this is women who like a particular kind of internal stimulation, g spot stimulation.
G spot vibrators may sound like they are designed for a specific body part, but are probably better understood as being designed for a particular kind of stimulation. G spot vibrators are usually firm and have a curve which makes it easier to stimulate the front wall of the vagina from the inside. Some women find this kind of stimulation highly pleasurable and report that orgasms feel different when they stimulate this area. Other women don't.
Finally there are vibrators called dual action vibrators which are designed to provide simultaneous clitoral stimulation and vaginal penetration. The rabbit vibrator is by far the best known of the dual action vibrators. Rabbit vibrators, like other dual action vibes, have a main shaft that vibrates or rotates, and a second part that branches off from the base, and is meant to provide clitoral stimulation at the same time.Double dildos are designed to allow penetration at either end of the toy, and may be used by women with a partner or on their own for simultaneous anal and vaginal penetration. sex and gender (so there are lubes for women and lubes for men, girly lubes and macho lubes, etcâ¦) Most of this is just marketing and should be ignored. One exception to this is that many lubricants are developed with the ph balance of the vagina in mind. In addition to this, women that are prone to yeast infections, women wanting to reduce their exposure to potentially harmful chemicals, and women who are trying to get pregnant should all choose a lubricant to suit their needs.
