What is the difference between a vibrator and a dildo?

vibrators are different from dildos

When people think of sex toys, most people think directly of dildos or vibrators. For many, it is the same.

Are vibrators and dildos the same?

But not at all! There is one important difference between the two toys: The vibrator is equipped with a motor. The dildo is moved with muscle power and is therefore completely silent.

Dildos are the oldest sex toys in the world. The first appeared already in the antiquity of the sixth century BC. At that time, penises were simply copied from stone, today they are much more sophisticated. They are thick or thin, they are available in silicone, plastic, wood and even in cooling glass, with nubs or notches. The penis shape has given way to new creations in recent years, so they can look like dolphins or penguins, but also like discreet design objects.

Vibrators have only been around since the 19th century. They were invented to cure women of so-called female hysteria through this form of sexual stimulation. Doctors believed that the disease originated in the womb.

At that time, the devices were steam-powered. But today they have one or more motors that run on rechargeable batteries. In principle, a vibrator is similar in shape to a conventional dildo. But it has more functions and more variable uses. There are models that specifically stimulate the G-spot or only the clitoris.

Are vibrators for men too?

The assortment is completed by lay-on vibrators in various shapes, which work with pressure wave stimulation in addition to pure vibration. Other models are specially designed for men and serve as prostate massage devices.
