During the last five years, the sex toy world has been totally revolutionised. Never before have we seen such an influx of new products targeting female pleasure - Hallelujah!
These new products have been developed by teams led by female engineers, female doctors and female experts. They harnessed their knowledge and found a way to apply technology in a functional way for female pleasure.
Let’s have a quick recap of its history to be sure that everybody is on the same page. In 1998 we finally discovered the real shape of the clitoris, the center of female pleasure. An organ that is 8cm long, that develops internally in two bulbs, two arms and one head; 8000 nerve endings ready to be stimulated with different techniques.
If we have a look at how female vibrators have been developed in the last 20 years (and more), we see that vibrations are the most commonly used technology to stimulate the clitoris. It clearly works, but I think we can all agree that this method of stimulation is a bit old and can do so much better. Why? Because vibrations by nature do not propagate well inside bodies, but rather concentrate where they are directed.
Focusing “only” on the visible part of the clitoris when we have 8cm of potential points of stimulation, seems a very narrow point of view.
It took us 20 years to develop a technology that allows sex toys to stimulate the whole body of the clitoris and all 8000 nerve endings. In reality, there was no new invention. Finally some brilliant minds understood how to use existing technologies in order to get multiple and intense orgasms, in a few minutes. Amen.

I’m talking about sonic waves, also known as air technology. These toys have been called “clitoris suckers”, that 's a basic terminology but definitely well-fitting.
This kind of clitoris vibrator allows zero effort and maximum result. People described their experience as “the kind of orgasm every woman should feel”. And it’s true, you just need to turn the toy on and place it - sometimes you may need only to move it closer without contact - in order to reach a powerful orgasm in a few minutes.
If you are too sensitive in your clitoris, I suggest that you don’t use this kind of clitoris vibrator but one of the other three technologies. However, if you are not, you should try this kind of stimulation at least once in your lifetime. There are many different toys that use waves or air - they differ in colour, shape, price and some of them are app-controlled. Here are some suggestions.

Obviously, we are all very different. Some of us prefer a less mechanical and more realistic stimulation, and waves are the kind of stimulation that cannot be replicated by a human being.
There are many ways of stimulating the clitoris. A survey led by a female engineering team at Lora DiCarlo brand, showed two forms of stimulation that are most effective: rotating movements and micro pressures.
Let’s talk about the first one: they resemble the cunnilungus a lot. These clitoral toys have a small ball (soft enough but not too much) or more than one ball that goes around in circles and can move as you like - you can also set the speed. It’s really like the tip of a human tongue.
This is the ideal stimulation for “oral-sex” lovers; it lets the orgasm grow gradually and it regulates trythm and pressure, allowing the clitoris to reach climax faster.

The name says it all. Hands are the most used tool in seeking pleasure and one of the most loved movements. According to a survey, so indeed are rhythmic touches on the clitoris. We can decide the rhythm we like, from slow to fast. This is the added value of these kinds of clitoral toys.
No more finger cramps and less effort - you just need to place the toy and set the rhythm and intensity you desire.
Until now, vibrations have been a great classic; a never ending story. Fortunately, nowadays batteries are rechargeable!
If you’d like to try a clitoral vibrator that uses vibration, you are spoilt for choice. So many different shapes, materials (be careful, I always suggest medical grade silicone), colours and kinds of vibrations.
The small ones are called bullet vibrators and they are not bigger than a finger (so they’re super discreet) - you can even place them in a clutch bag. Then there are the mini rabbits or the bigger rabbits, larger and more flexible, that allow you to also stimulate other parts of your vulva.
The round ones, fitting perfectly in your hand, can be placed on your whole vulva. Then there are the “finger” vibrators; you hold them between your fingers. Finally, there are the wands. They are magical in stimulating your clitoris, as they produce intense vibrations.

Whichever technology you choose, always remember to thank those who worked incredibly hard for many years in order to give us the opportunity to choose a sex toy that is created with the real shape of the clitoris in mind. A toy that is different, like every one of us, and the companion in our pleasure discovery.
