Vibrators

Bullets are small, discreet egg-shaped vibrators that have versatile uses. Place a bullet on your favorite erogenous zone and enjoy the simple pleasure. How about customizing your erotic toys? Bullet vibrators come in a variety of non-standard sizes (2 to 2-1/2 inches long, 1/2 to 1 inch wide) and may or may not be inter-switchable with removable bullet novelties so some improvisation may be required. Ready to spice up your favorite love-making positions? Hold the bullet next to your cheek as you perform oral sex and the vibration will go through your tongue and send your partner through the roof!

Bullets travel discreetly since they're small enough to carry in your purse or pocket. Typically they are made of hard plastic so they are very easy to clean.

Some bullet vibrators come with multi-speed (battery pack) controllers for controlling the speed of the vibrations. These would use require either 2 "AA" or 3 "AAA" batteries. Others are completely wireless with a little dial at the bottom and use button cell batteries. Some of wireless variety are even waterproof!

Classic vibrators typically have smooth, torpedo-shaped, hard plastic shafts and are designed for vaginal penetration or stimulation of any erogenous zone. These traditional vibes have built-in battery packs, come in a variety of sizes and colors, but all feature the same basic operation...turn them on and they vibrate!

At Melrose Urban Female, we've also included the Hitachi Magic Wand in this collection, since this traditional design has been one that women have trusted for decades.

These realistic vibrators are designed to resemble the real thing. Some of these vibrators are made with Cyberskin, an amazingly life-like skin substitute. Most of them, however will have a penis-shaped head and veined texture to the shaft.

Electric vibrators must be plugged into an AC outlet for use and are noticeably more powerful than battery operated vibrators. Our favorite (and most popular) electric vibrator is the Vibratex Hitachi Magic Wand. This is by far the most powerful vibrator anywhere. Some women require this much stimulation for orgasm, and would never think of using anything else! The disadvantage of electric vibrators, in general, is that they must always be attached to a wall outlet, which can restrict your location and movement. The Hitachi Magic Wand was designed to be used exteriorly as a massager. As a sex toy, women have found that it provides teeth-chattering arousal to the clitoris.

Manufacturers have creatively designed wand attachments that turn this powerhouse into a g-spot vibrator, as well.

Rechargeable vibrators are more powerful than your typical battery toy, a nice advantage for those of you looking for more power but also flexibility of movement. And, of course you never have to buy batteries! A disadvantage is that you must remember to recharge them after each use. Typically a single charge will last 1.25-2 hours which is usually enough time to thoroughly take advantage of the toy.

The Grafenberg Spot was referred to a 1950 article in the International Journal of Sexology in which Dr. Ernest Gräfenberg wrote about erotic sensitivity along the anterior vaginal wall.

Most people don’t know about the G-Spot, a bean shaped mass of nerve tissue located about halfway between the back of the pubic bone and the top of the cervix. Along with the clitoris, the G-Spot is the other focal point of the female sexual arousal. The G-Spot marks the Paraurethral glands behind the vaginal wall that are filled with the prostate-like fluid that women sometime ejaculate when having an orgasm (in addition to the vaginal discharge that is usually produced). Stimulation of the G-Spot increases production of the ejaculate within the Paraurethral glands and increases the likelihood of a woman being able to push it out during an orgasm.

How can you find the G-Spot? The size and location of the G-Spot will vary from woman to woman, but it’s usually about the size of a quarter, and lies two to three inches inside the upper/front wall of the vagina directly behind the pubic bone. Not easily located, there is a method to finding it. If you lie down on your back, knees bent and feet flat on the bed. Put a small pillow under your buttocks. Insert the length of a lubricated forefinger into your vagina toward your naval. (This will be about two inches inside the vagina). Press with your finger against the wall of your vagina. Because the G-Spot is surrounded with tissue and is deep in the vaginal wall, you may want to apply a little more pressure than usual. You should feel a slightly rough patch of skin with a different texture from the rest of the vagina.

When you stimulate the right spot, it will swell, or engorge with blood the way a man’s penis does. When you find the sensitive spot, continue stimulating it until it becomes firm and swells like erectile tissue.

Most women need much firmer pressure to the front of the vagina, quick rhythm, and lots of friction to have a G-Spot orgasm. With their special curve to stimulate the G-Spot on the ceiling inside your vagina, G-Spot vibrators are designed to help you achieve the illusive G-Spot orgasm. By following the steps above you’ll have a better idea of the spot you want to target. As you insert a G-Spot vibe, the curved portion should be pointed up towards the surface of your lower tummy. The little stimulator arouses the clitoris while the curved shaft is arousing your vagina and the curved tip is facing up, pointed towards your navel (G-Spot).

Some women feel the need to urinate at first when the G-Spot is stimulated and this is normal. The clear fluid released during climax is sometimes mistaken for urine, however G-Spot orgasms are known to produce an unusually large amount of clear white fluid so don’t be alarmed!

Do you like vibrators but miss the fingerplay? Now you can have both with these tiny vibrators that fit over or around your fingertips turning your finger into a mini vibrator. These finger toys add endless possibilities to the sexual encounter equation. They can be used to stimulate and tickle the erogenous of your partner (ie nipples, testicles, etc) hightening the foreplay encounter. For women who need clitoral stimuation during intercourse, either she or her partner can massage the pleasure zone with a vibrating finger.

Be daring and wear one on each finger!

Originally designed by a woman, Jack Rabbit style vibrators are used for simultaneous vaginal and clitoral stimulation. The penis-shaped shaft's outer layer is typically constructed from a soft jelly or silicone material. Attached on the top of the shaft is a small rabbit (or some other critter) that is made of soft jelly for clitoral arousal.

The characteristics that all our Jack Rabbit style vibrators share:

  1. A phallic-shaped shaft for vaginal penetration and a protruding limb for simultaneous clitoral stimulation
  2. Rotating shafts
  3. Vibrations for shaft and clitoral stimulator

Our jelly category of vibrators encompasses all vibrators and stimulators made from the mysterious substance named jelly, gel, puregel, siligel, spectra-gel, crystal jelly and crystalesence jelly amongst others. What these all have in common is their jelly-like texture, realistic softness and affordable price – making them extremely popular these days! Some of the most beautiful sex toys on the market are made of translucent jelly and available in every color of the rainbow – which is why we women LOVE them so much! In fact, it could be argued that the texture of jelly feels so erotic to the touch, it really doesn’t matter what they look like. With a blindfold on, feeling the jello-ish jiggle sends your receptors into overdrive, yet the phallic-shaped vibrators feel sturdy – much like a man’s erect penis. In our opinion, the crème de la crème (pardon the pun) of jelly sex toy applications – that jaw-dropping moment - is when jelly stimulators are applied to the clitoris!

Jelly material is delicate and porous. Because of this, they can feel somewhat sticky, even when dry and they tend to collect lint – even if you set them down for a second! This is easily remedied by carefully washing them with a mild sudsy washcloth (paying attention not to get the electronics wet) and drying with a lint-free towel or air-drying. Never use dishwashing liquid soap, harsh oil-removing soaps or alcohol on jelly toys. A mild liquid hand or facial soap with no harsh chemicals is perfect. Jelly is not as rugged as other toy materials and can become damaged easily. Also, because they are so porous, we recommend using a condom if you plan on sharing your sex toy with a partner.

Another interesting characteristic of jelly toys is their propensity to smell like plastic. Fortunately, manufacturers have heard your complaints and they are now producing jelly toys described as “pleasantly scented”, “hygienically superior” or “sensually scented”. Siligel is a silicone jelly material that is less porous and it doesn’t have that rubbery smell. Jel-lee material is scent-free and latex-free for allergy sufferers.

Jelly will degrade if exposed to a non-water based lubricant, so always use a water-based lubricant!

For both men and women, the nipples and areola (the pinkish area that directly surrounds the nipple) have extremely sensitive nerve endings. The muscles underneath the nipples contract when exposed to temperature changes, touch and arousal. Highly responsive to touch nipples fill with blood and get more sensitive the more intense your arousal becomes. Many women can actually orgasm from breast stimulation!

Vibrating nipple clamps attempt to reproduce the same pleasurable sensations created when your partner kisses, licks, pinches, flicks their tongue or gently bites on your nipples. These clamps have miniature bullet-shaped vibrators suspended from them to intensify the stimulation. They can be used with or without the vibrators turned on. The vibrators add some weight to the clamps and will swing as you move, providing extra sensation as they pull on the clamps. A tension-release screw allows for adjustment, however because clamps restrict blood flow, they should never be used for more than 15 to 20 minutes at a time.

Vibrating nipple clamps can also be used on the clitoris or labia. Some customers have created their own vibrating panties by clamping one strategically to the inside of their underwear!

We've reserved this subcategory for all penetrating vibrators whose shafts measure 1.25" or less in diameter at the widest point. The average width or diameter of a vibrator is 1.5", yet some women find these too uncomfortable for vaginal play. Also, for "beginner" anal penetration, it's important the you select a plug that isn't more than 1.25" at the widest. It will be much less intimidating, allowing you to relax and enjoy!

The "Slim & Ultra-Thin" subcategory easily pulls up all of these vibrators into a single view.

Most women need clitoral stimulation in order to have an orgasm. To this end, clitoral stimulators were specifically designed to target this super sensitive zone. All of them involve vibrations of varying speeds and many offer functions such as pulsation and escalation. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes including strap-ons, panties, hand-held, bullets, or erection rings. In addition, they are made of a wide range of materials including silicone, plastic, or jelly material. Clitoral stimulators pack a powerful punch and tease the clitoris with their varying functions and speeds.

Many clitoral stimulators may be used during intercourse while some women simply enjoy how wonderful they can feel used solo during masturbation. The FingO and The Pocket Rocket are just two of the many popular clitoral stimulators that we carry.

Great for couple's play because most of these toys travel well and can be used in a wild variety of settings. Also terrific for solo use because there's no reaching or stretching involved when controlling your vibrator.

Waterproof vibrator sex toys follow you into the bath, shower, hot tub or other wet water adventure. These are great vibrators if your only privacy consists of the bathroom. They tend to be very quiet so you can't hear the vibrations (or you!) over the noise created by the shower or running bath water.

Dildos

CyberSkin® was invented by the founders of Topco Sales whose origins are in Southern California’s Aerospace and Metallurgical Engineering Technology. With this incredibly realistic breakthrough material, Topco Sales has been on the cutting edge with their virtual reality sex toys. Topco Sales is partnered with Hustler Toys, Spice TV, and Penthouse Toys and Wildfire, so you will notice they all have CyberSkin® products.

With the creation of CyberSkin® it is now possible to make products with Virtual Touch™, that is, with an extremely realistic feel like that of the human body. This means that if you close your eyes and touch the material, you can't tell the difference between CyberSkin® and the human body. CyberSkin® has two unique properties. First, CyberSkin® has memory and can recover to its original shape. Second, this revolutionary material can simulate in the same product the softness of skin and the rigidity of erectile tissue. The injection molding process used to create CyberSkin® products allows them to vary the density or hardness of the CyberSkin® within the same mold. This is one of the keys to the remarkably realistic feel. Some CyberSkin® dildos are so detailed that they have skin that moves along the shaft and balls that shift inside the scrotum.

For some customers, CyberSkin® dildos are almost a little too realistic looking and feeling. Almost horrified at the sight and feel of a disembodied penis, they can’t imagine being turned on by them. The size can also add to this fear. Because of the soft, skin-like resilient surface, the manufacturer has tended to make these vibrators larger in girth than average, knowing that they will fit and feel just fine.

Most customers genuinely enjoy the likeness, and it feeds perfectly into their most erotic fantasies. The CyberSkin® dildos with realistic balls provide a flat base fitting against the palm of your hands for control, while the balls stimulate the clitoris with each thrust.

CyberSkin® Care and Cleaning

CyberSkin® needs to be treated with care. It is not the type of toy you throw into a drawer along with your other toys. Being soft and skin-like, it can tear against rough edges, and because it’s semi-porous you don’t want it touching any silicone toys. Silicone deteriorates CyberSkin® material and also stains it to whatever color the silicone toy was that it touched!

The semi-porous quality also makes CyberSkin® toys more difficult to clean than other materials. Therefore, you may want to cover your CyberSkin® dildo with a condom before inserting it, especially if you are using it for anal penetration or if you are sharing it. And as with all CyberSkin® toys, use water-based lube only; oil-based or silicone-based lubes will destroy the CyberSkin® material.

After Use:

  1. Wash with a liquid antibacterial soap and water.
  2. Pat dry with a soft cotton towel and allow to air-dry completely.
  3. Generously apply CyberSkin® RENEW (or cornstarch) to properly maintain your CyberSkin® products. This will restore the original soft, non-sticky smooth Virtual Touch™ texture.

Hard, smooth, seamless hand blown works of art, glass is arguably superior to any material used in massage therapy and its designs are inspired by ancient Chinese energy and harmony concepts. The smoothness and weight of glass achieve the pressure and control needed for satisfying sensations without friction.

Glass massage tools are made from medical grade hypoallergenic glass. This is the same durable glass used in contemporary bake ware, such as Pyrex®. Containing a scientific grade borosilicate that resists breakage, your glass dildos can last you a lifetime so enjoy the sensation!

Glass may be heated or cooled to further increase the enjoyment of your massage. The molecular structure of glass is that of liquid so it is temperature absorbent and adjusts to the temperature of your body. It can be warmed in hot tap water (for 1-2 minutes), or placed in the freezer for an icy chill. It will stay hot or cold for ten minutes.

Since glass is non-porous, it is also compatible with every variety of personal lubricant and massage oil. Also, the lubricity lasts much longer than massagers made of other materials! Cleaning e-glass® is easy since these massagers are dishwasher safe and can be sterilized in boiling water.

Realistic dildos are the perfect sex toy when the real thing isn't available. Modeled from actual penises, realistic dildos have natural looking veins and testicles and are often molded from male adult stars penises. For an even more lifelike feel, these realistic dildos are made of materials like Cyberskin, UR3 and silicone. Designed specifically for penetration, realistic dildos can be used vaginally, anally or you can practice your blow-job skills. Many realistic dildos are used with harnesses and are strapped on. As with real penises, realistic dildos come in a range of sizes and shapes that will meet the needs of beginners and experts. 

Silicone is the ideal material for just about every kind of sex toy. Lifelike with a soft, smooth texture, silicone quickly reaches and retains body temperature, making your sexual experience wonderfully warm and realistic. Silicone also cleans very well; it's non-porous, so you can easily wash your toys with soap and water without having to worry about having an allergic reaction. The only drawback to this wonder-material is the price - because silicone toys are hand-cast, they can cost significantly more than their rubber or jelly cousins. If you're looking for a high-quality, realistic toy that will last a long time, silicone is a good way to go.

Harness compatible dildos are uniquely made to work with any number of harnesses. What makes a dildo harness compatible, is the slightly flared base suction cup which secures it between the harness and o-ring for an optimal fit.  Strap-on sex allow both men and women to experiment with vaginal and anal intercourse. Many women have found it exhilarating to turn the tables on their man.

Put 'em in -- and leave 'em in. These anal plugs come in variety of sizes because not all butt plugs are made equal, but they all have a similar shape, narrow at the base, thickens in the middle and narrowest on top. The flared base prevents the anal plugs from getting "sucked in" and lost inside. Anal plugs are designed to stay in place rather than be pushed inside and out. We carry beginner anal plugs and various vibrating butt plugs for his and her pleasure.

Lubricants

Great for vaginal penetration. Water-based lubricants consist mostly of water, resembling a thin syrup that feels slick to the touch. Safe for use with all sex toys and latex, they do not stain sheets and are wonderfully slippery and wash right off in water. The only disadvantage to water-based lubes is that after a long period of time, they tend to dry out requiring more applications.

Stay slippery much longer than water-based lubricants, without the need for reapplying. Silicone-based lubes are non-sticky and waterproof, so they are great for playfulness underwater! These lubes are also safe to use with condoms, diaphragms, and (non-silicone) sex toys. (Silicone-based lubricants may react chemically with some silicone toys, so the two should not be used together.)

Hybrid is a new category of lubricants that has been evolving over ths last couple of years. These hybrid lubricants take the best quality of water and silicone and elimate the less desirable qualities. The end results are lubricants that are long-lasting, silky smooth and clean up easily.

Anal lubes are specifically designed to be heavier because the rectum does not produce any lubrication on its own. Without lots of lubrication, the rectum can be temporarily and painfully damaged. There is never too much lube for anal sex. Consisting of both water-based and oil-based, these lubricants have the lasting power and won’t break down during anal sex.

A wide variety of products designed to enhance arousal and/or prolong orgasm. Arousal enhancers for women are designed specifically to produce tingling sensations and increase blood flow to the vagina. For men, they are designed to keep the penis hard and firm, but provide the staying power needed to prolong orgasm.
