However, when a friend gave her a selection of toys for her birthday, Noémie changed her perspective. “I discovered that vibrators can also be thin, lightly colored, subtle and stimulate the clitoris without focusing on vaginal penetration. Not to mention from the accessories, such as the vibrating ring to put on the penis, which my companion really liked."
Far from focusing on penetration, modern vibrators explore all aspects of female and male pleasure, allowing you to expand the range of possibilities.

"I wondered if it was my fault if I wasn't giving him enough pleasure have."After long conversations with her lover, Anna gradually got rid of this prejudice."I understood that it is important to keep moments for yourself and that what happens in the couple's room has nothing to do with what what you experience and explore alone."
In addition, the vibrator can also have a therapeutic vocation beyond pleasure. For women with dyspareunia - pain during vaginal penetration - the vibrator, which stimulates the vaginal wall and clitoris at the same time, can be used to relax and soothe their penetrative relationship.
