Vibrators are popular sex toys that produce pleasurable vibrations. Known as one of the most common adult toys in the world, vibrators come in many different sizes, shapes and materials. Since they are so varied there are many sub-types of vibrators to choose from. Any adult toy that produces vibrations can be considered a vibrator. Typically, vibrators use batteries or are electric-powered to produce vibrations. Modern vibrators usually come with more than one vibrating speed and type, so the user can choose between pulsations, vibrations and throbbing in various speeds and intensities. Both men and women can use vibrators for enhancing sexual pleasure and to make their solo time more exciting.

Vibrators can be used on many different body parts. The most common erogenous zones to stimulate with a vibrator include vagina, vulva, clitoris, perineum, anus, testicles, penis and nipples. Out of these, vagina, clitoris and anus are the most popular erogenous zones to stimulate. Certain vibrators are specially designed for specific erogenous zones, such as vaginal vibrators, G-spot vibrators, clitoral vibrators, anal vibrators or urethral vibrators. Others take their name based on the shape of the toy, so there are phallic vibrators, egg and bullet vibrators, and more. Certain vibrators are designed to stimulate more than one erogenous zone at once. The most common example of these vibrators are rabbit vibrators made to stimulate the vagina and clitoris.
