What's a clitoral vibrator? How is it different from other vibrators?
A clitoral vibrator is a vibrator designed for clitoral stimulation. You can usually tell if it's a clitoral stimulator or g-spot vibrator based on the design of the sex toy. G-spot vibrators are often phallic so that they can reach a vagina's internal g-spot whereas clitoral vibrators can be a wide variety of shapes, some very discreet: wand-shaped like the Hitachi magic wand massager, disc-like like Unbound's Bean, a bullet vibrator, or shaped like a lemon (hint)!
Of course, there are also those infamous for conquering both g-spot stimulation and the clitoris at the same time, such as the iconic Rabbit vibrator featured on Sex and the City.
And remember, when looking for a clitoral vibrator, make sure it's made of body-safe, soft silicone. Hard plastic parts aren't going to feel good against that bundle of nerves!

Clit vibes for couples–best sellers and high-tech options
Clit vibrators are extremely handy partners for couples in the bedroom. They make it much more likely that a woman will orgasm, increasing enjoyment overall for everyone involved. We've written a lot in the past about how to use a vibrator during sex with a partner and how it can change a relationship (for the better!). Some companies have capitalized on this by creating sex toys designed to be used during sex.
