The summer months are passing quickly but there’s one thing Canadian adults can enjoy year-round: sex toys.

Yes, we’re going there. Because it’s time to start caring about the Big O in your life. After all, climaxing can have positive benefits for your health like reducing stress, promoting calmness, and making you feel pretty darn happy.

We’re living in an era where you’ve got the freedom to explore new things, whether you’re single, dating, or in a long-term relationship — and that’s a huge improvement from 50 years ago. So why not take advantage of that and invest in a toy that might just do you a world of good?

If certain myths or misconceptions have held you back until now, don’t worry. To help make things a lot clearer and get that oomph back in your step, here are four things that everyone gets wrong about buying a vibrator.

Aesthetics shouldn’t surprise you

It’s the 21st century and this is a friendly reminder that no two vibrators are created equal. If the appearance of the products you’re viewing online are surprising you, that’s a good thing. Technology is advancing, and for sex toys, that’s just an added bonus. Take the Mighty Metallic Wand Massager as an example. At first glance, you could think this is a microphone, but it’s got the power to leave users feeling intense power that will have you singing higher notes than you could imagine (in or outside the shower).

On the other hand, you’ve got the Petite Remote Control Panty Teaser which you may mistake as a hair detangler. Think again, dear friends, because this device is made from silky smooth silicone and is lined with stimulating ridges to send you floating on a cloud of pleasure.

That there’s only one vibrator shape

Everyone has different needs and until now, you might have thought that a vibrator fits one specific kind of shape or style. The good news is, that’s not the case these days. In fact, there are a plethora of different shaped vibrating adult toys on the market, each with their own specific set of uses. For instance, the Rechargeable Finger Vibe is one you may not have considered. Wondering how it works? Well, it fits onto any size finger and sends blissful or powerful (depending on your mood) waves of vibrations to wherever the user wants them to go.

If big and bulky toys are too offputting for your liking, you might want to find a smaller yet equally strong vibrator like the Intimate Curves Rechargeable Wand. It’s fully rechargeable and even lights up to let you know that it’s on and ready for usage. Since it comes with a USB charging cable, it’s as easy as charging your smartphone, kind of.

The product names don’t live up to the expectation

Thruster/Adam & Eve

Although we don’t know what toys you’ve used in the past and whether you’ve found them to be good or bad, there is a selection of products on the market with names that actually match their use perfectly. One of those is the Thruster — the world’s first thrusting, rechargeable silicone vibrator. This multi-function product comes with an angled G-spot-friendly tip. It’s also got a seven-function rabbit-style clitoris stimulator, so you can use your imagination to guess how that feels.

The Evolved Wild Orchid Vibrator has not one but two motors; one in the tip of the shaft and another in the flexible clitoral stimulator. Users can feel the throttle separately or have the two motors work at once for an “explosively” good time.

You have to vibrate solo

There’s a common misconception that vibrators are for single-user enjoyment only. However, there are options that cater to couples, too. If you’re looking to spice up your relationship, the Tryst Multi-Erogenous Massager could be the toy you need. Arms, a triple-motor system, and seven arousing vibrating functions give this device the power to act as a penis ring, clitoral stimulator, couples vibrator, and so much more. Basically, it offers the best of both worlds for partners. What could be better than that?
