We are sometimes of the mindset that one vibrator will do all things, or that maybe we should only use our vibrator in a certain type of scenario (whilst having sex for example).

Different vibrators are great for different situations, and it pays to have a variety.

Here are eight ways in which we here at Passionfruit, use our toys:

1. A quick afternoon orgasm

There’s nothing like getting off in less than a minute to help wake you up at 3.00pm. We drink too much coffee as it is. Instead, find your strongest vibe, such as the Palm Power or We-Vibe Tango, think sexy thoughts and apply to your clitoris. No need to get undressed. Job done.

2. Relaxation

Had a long day? Set the mood, draw the bath or lie in bed and leisurely love yourself. Employ your best waterproof wonder toy, like the seriously good Sensevibe, to melt your worries away. Orgasm has loads of health benefits and improves immunity. Stress helps us achieve things but can be detrimental to our health if not alleviated so….vibrator.

3. Self Exploration

A variety of vibrators will help you find out more about your own sexuality and how your body responds. Putting aside time to experiment, without orgasm as the sole aim will radically increase your libido and sexual confidence. You can search for your G-Spot using a favourite dildo like the Pure Wand or even go for a cervical orgasm with the G-Stronic. You can experiment with anal toys like the Rosebud to test the feel of weight in your butt while you masturbate. You can do your kegel exercises with the Yany Beads. You can massage your own prostate and try having an orgasm without ejaculating with The P-Vibe. You can employ the sensational Rave and feel parts of your vagina you never knew were there! Be bold and experiment with vibrators like you experiment with makeup or wine or shoes. (Admittedly, the above mentioned are not all 'vibrators' but choice sex toys nonetheless).

4. In front of your partner

Bringing yourself to orgasm with a gorgeous toy while your partner watches is completely erotic. Not only will you be showing your partner how you get turned on (education) you’ll look sexy as hell and skyrocket your bedroom confidence. Move your vibrator around and PLAY rather than leaving it in one place. We suggest the Big Boss for the illusion of real or the pretty and petite Uma.

5. With your partner in control

An enthusiastic partner will love to (for example) blindfold you, tie you up and bring you to shattering orgasm with the perfect toy. Heavenly! We always suggest a soft, flexible toy rather than a rigid toy for this scenario, so as to keep things comfortable. The Fun Factory range is perfect for this. Try the Tiger or Lady Bi

6. Travel

Travelling to far flung destinations or for a round of international board meetings shouldn’t mean missing out on revitalising orgasms. You can wear your vibrator around your neck in the form of the stunning Crave Necklace or pack your trusty Tango bullet. Most toys charge via USB so there’s no need to pack batteries. Then there’s toys like The Nova that can be controlled via a smartphone from anywhere in the world. Why not have your partner enjoy the party too? Just because you’re far apart doesn’t mean you can’t be intimate.

7. During sex

Most women cannot climax through penetration alone. Using a clitoral toy during penetration like the Kushi or Touch will help you achieve that. The We-Vibe is a couples toy that stays in place during sex and creates intimacy because you’re both feeling the same thing. A vibrating erection ring like the standout Mio is perfect for couples. His erection stays harder for longer and her clitoris feels the vibration when you’re at your closest. You can both have a powerful orgasm when completely connected. Double dildos like The Sonic can be used face to face or end to end! The possibilities are endless…..

8. Rehabilitation

Health issues affect us all and vibrators are a great tool to aid recovery. Both vaginismus and vulvodynia can be eased with the help of a slender, squishy toy like the Mikazuki. A Breast Massager can relieve soreness, increase circulation and contribute to the healing process after breast surgery. Vibrators can be used to aid recovery from sexual trauma (we suggest talking to a physiotherapist about this). The Pulse can help bring a flaccid penis to ejaculation for men who have had a spinal cord injury or who suffer erectile dysfunction or limited mobility. And vibrators can help those with anorgasmia - when orgasm is persistently difficult to achieve.

So many different vibrators can help with all of the above. Have fun, try different models and keep a grand selection for every encounter.
