Who here can say as much? But for many people, the episode simply tapped into something they were already well aware of: Vibrators are a damn good tool with which to find sexual gratification.
Sold in virtually every color of the rainbow, with a plethora of materials , intensities , shapes and price points , vibrators abide by the Goldilocks method: Some are too this, others are too that, but then you find the one that's just right. But they're more than just pretty toys. There's something else at work besides magic. So what's really going on inside your nightstand's favorite little buzzing resident? Giphy As it turns out, they're relatively simple.
Then there are very high-intensity vibrators," which run at higher frequencies, she said. Typically, you want a motor with as little wobble, or vibration, as possible.
But a vibrator relishes in the opposite: The greater the vibration, the better. You're intentionally making the entire setup wobble as the motor spins. That's what the creates the vibration.
YouTube "The bigger the [weight], the more off-center it's mounted and the faster you spin it, the stronger the vibration," Lieberman explained. Displacement is also a factor. The bigger the distance a motor moves inside the housing of a product, the more powerful it will be. Why do both men and women tend to orgasm more quickly and easily at frequencies we don't normally produce ourselves as humans? Tweet Vibrators need an electricity source in order to make the motor spin, and most get that from batteries — AA, AAA or watch batteries, according to Herbenick.
Some, like the Hitachi Magic Wand, use an outlet and a plug, which equals greater power and thus greater intensity. But, she added, they're not as frequently used because they're not quite as convenient as a more portable vibrator. But devices like phones and toothbrushes vibrate, too. So although some people may at least initially experience with vibration that's available to them from something like a toothbrush or phone, especially if they're young Giphy The material used is another factor.
And that wouldn't be the case with a lower frequency vibrator. Though most vibrators use a rotary motor system, others, like Hot Octopuss' Pulse sex toy and Revel Body's sonic vibrator , have expanded beyond that method.
In his company's products, "you have a motor attached to a mechanism that causes a pad to go up and down, like a piston," Adam Lewis, the co-founder of Hot Octopuss, told Mic.
The devices uses this mechanism "to deliver high-amplitude oscillations rather than low-amplitude vibrations," the website further explains. RevelBody The idea, Lewis said, came from medicine that has been in use for years. It's more like a piston, a sort of up-and-down motion. YouTube Revel Body's sonic vibrator is similar. According to its website , it uses linear motors, which, unlike rotary motors, "produce pulsation, a back-and forth-vibration or force that creates high-performance vibration.
It used to be very much dominated by the large players in the market. Now you're seeing smaller companies coming into the market with this [new] technology. You'll see the new entrants coming to the market [that work] very differently to the legacy products that have been around for years.
Regardless of someone's gender, vibrators can do wonders for sexual satisfaction. Why do both men and women eke so much pleasure out of a little bit of vibration? Giphy "Ultimately, why, for example, do both men and women tend to orgasm more quickly and easily at frequencies that we don't normally produce ourselves as humans?
Why wouldn't the optimal frequency be something that's more common to humans, that we produce on our own? Moreover, we're not all the same when it comes to intensity levels.
Whatever the science behind them, however, one thing is for sure: They sure do get us buzzing like bees.
