Vibrators

Vibrators are available in a range of hard and soft rubbers, plastics and metals and in many varieties, from small, single-area stimulators -- known as bullets -- to more advanced models designed to stimulate multiple regions. For example, Rabbit-style vibrators include a shaft with rotating beads and a clitoral stimulator that may be shaped like rabbit ears. Some models feature anal stimulators, too [source: Steinborn]. Vibrators may be battery powered or have a power cord that will need to be plugged into an electrical socket, and some are rechargeable.

Bullets are small cylinders that commonly have a simple on/off function to control the vibrating mechanism. Others are more complex. Take the OhMiBod Boditalk Escort Vibrator, for example. You can set this vibrator to activate when you dial your cell phone; it will stay in motion for the length of your call [source: DV Hardware]. How's that for phone sex?
