You’ll never forget your firsts. First crush, first lover, first vibrator. All of them can be extremely confusing to navigate.

Advice from a female sex toy designer on what’s out there, what to look for, and recommendations.
A clitoris pump (also colloquially known as a clit pump, pussy pump, or clit sucking toys) is a device that you place over your clitoris (and sometimes vulva) that provides clitoral stimulation via a cunnilingus-like sensation. Its purpose is to enhance sexual arousal and pleasure, add additional stimulation, and depending on the toy, potentially bring the person using it to orgasm.
When experimenting with Lioness, I’ve sometimes given the suggestion of trying different sensations with different external stimulators, using the Lioness more a measurement tool by keeping the vibration off using the customizable vibration settings. This is an example of what I mean — here, I’ll use the Vesper while using the Lioness’s biofeedback technology to show arousal and orgasm. This is my second in a series, the first being the Zumio.

A study that was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that nearly half (44.8%) of all men surveyed had used a sex toy at some point in their life (either for solo and/or partner play) and about 17 percent had used a vibrator for solo masturbation. Granted, this survey was conducted back in 2008, which (surprisingly) is now eons ago. With the rise of more sophisticated and tech savvy sex toys, as well as more cultural openness around sex, both of these percentages have likely increased in the last decade.
