When we see the word vibrators, we all know that it’s kind of synonym of sex toys, which means toys for sex. We use vibrators on our erogenous zones for sexual stimulation, for the release of sexual frustration to achieve orgasms. In fact, vibrators are often recommended by sex therapists for women who have difficulty reaching orgasm through masturbation or intercourse.
You may have read in many researches about how doctors invented vibrator as a treatment device for hysteria, what a noble invention! However, according to my own research, there’s a lot of myths and misinformation about the claim of such vibrators history. According to Helen King and a 2018 paper by Hallie Lieberman and Eric Schatzberg, there is not more than “circumstantial evidence that a few physicians and midwives may have practiced genital massage before the 20th century”.
I believe that people from the 19th century did know that vibrators have such a wonderful and noble usage, but due to masturbation was widely viewed as shameful, vibrators had never been openly advertised as sexual products. Thanks to the progress of civilivation, vibrators become increasingly visible in mainstream public culture, and the market of vibrators is booming today!
Let’s Go High-Tech, and Smart!
Just about most of the appliances in our lives are “smart”, it comes no surprise that vibrators are getting smart too. But how smart can vibrators be given their sole purpose is to vibrate and offer sexual stimulation? Not to worry, this dream of disrupting the sex toy industry through innovation and tech has garnered tremendous hypes over the past few years. SexTech has become one of the trend in the global tech scene, sexual wellness is getting mainstream too!
The 8 That I Love or Would Love To Have
I have gathered 8 high-tech and smart toys in the current market below, I have tried a couple of them, while waiting for someone to ship me the rest for review. 🙂
1. The Lioness Vibrator
Design wise, the Lioness looks like an ordinary rabbit vibrator, but it’s considered one of the smartest vibrators in the market. Once you link it up to the app on your smartphone, the Lioness transforms into one with biofeedback technology that learns up on everything from your body temperature to your pelvic floor contractions. You can even see a visual representation of your own orgasm, how about that? If you want to further study your own sex drive, you are encouraged to put down notes about each masturbation experience, so over time you will be able to learn how your sexual pleasure might be affected by things like stress, alcohol or tiredness. From all the above, it does sound intrigue to try, but I am still waiting for their email…

3. LELO Enigma
LELO Enigma is not truly a smart vibrator, but it is definitely a high-tech vibrator to me! I own this toy, and I am pretty impressed with how well it works on me. Love it. Enigma is marketed as dual action sonic massager. Basically, it has one suction part that aim to stimulate your clit from the outside and another vibrating part that goes inside for your G-spot stimulation. It took me awhile with some lube (water-based please) for me to get it into the right position, and it actually worked pretty well for me!
