Traditional vibrators focus entirely on vaginal penetration and stimulation. They don't have the spinning beads for your G-spot or the blinking bunny ears for your clitoris. Traditional vibrators may only do one thing, but they do it better than any other type of vibrator or sex toy!
When you ask most people to describe a vibrator, they usually end up describing a traditional vibe. Traditional vibrators typically have rounded or tapered tips and smooth cylindrical bodies to facilitate penetration. Motors are usually located in or near the tip for deeper stimulation. They are usually about 6 inches long and a little over 1 inch wide. Don't be surprised if this sounds like the vibrator you found in your parent's or sister's sock drawer years ago. Traditional vibrators haven't changed much in decades, and they're still hugely popular -- even as bunny and G-Spot vibrators take the spotlight.
While traditional vibrators are designed for vaginal use, you can easily use them for other purposes. Using a cutting-edge motor, you can focus traditional vibrations on your nipples or clitoris for direct stimulation. Traditional vibrators also make decent body massagers—especially if you have a knot in your neck or back that won't go away. While it may be tempting to use a traditional vibrator for anal stimulation, it's not a good idea. Traditional vibrators don't have the safety features found on anal toys, and they're more likely to be lost if you're taken away.
Traditional vibrators are very popular among beginners. Many people actually end up choosing traditional vibrators as their first sex toy — mostly because they're so user-friendly. Traditional vibrators cost less than other types of vibrators, making them very easy on your budget. Traditional vibrators are easy to use, and there are no complicated controls or bells and whistles that would make a bunny vibrator so confusing. Basic vibrators use normal AA or AAA batteries you can easily find - even if that means "borrowing" them from your TV remote!
