Review: The Eroscillator

The Eroscillator, a long, thin tan-coloured "fun stick", has been around for a while now. This electrically-powered device oscillates from side to side, instead of vibrating up and down, and the makers claim this action creates better orgasms, faster. As it oscillates 3,600 times a minute, it's easy to imagine the benefits.

The main marketing point of the Eroscillator is that it is a full-blown electrically powered "massager" that is purely intended for sexual use. All other electric vibrators are marketed as muscle massagers, and may not necessarily be the best thing to put near your rude bits.

Thus, this vibrator is lighter and more flexible, but far sturdier than any adult-shop-type vibrator. It never runs out of batteries, comes with 5 attachments, all designed to stimulate the clitoris, and even has its own instruction book on how to produce orgasms with the device.

I have to say, it's one hell of a fun toy. Mains power means you get some seriously amazing stimulation, although the cord can be a hassle sometimes. My favourite attachments would have to be the one with little bumps on it, and the flat one that imitates the motion of a finger. The vibrations range from tiny to extremely strong, which makes it a very versatile vibrator. After an initial warm up, I found its top speed can induce an orgasm in a matter of seconds.

The slimness of these attachments means the device can be used during intercourse, as it doesn't get in the way.

The makers conducted a study comparing their design with the Hitachi Magic Wand, the Prelude III, and the Eroscillator. The 30 participants reported faster and more intense orgasms when compared with the other vibrators. Dr Ruth has personally recommended its use in sex therapy. I hear that it's been the tool of choice for women learning to experience their first orgasms.

The Eroscillator doesn't come cheap (it's almost $200), but it's definitely worth the money. You get something that's going to last, and it's going to give you some damned fine pleasure as often as you want it.

The Eroscillator is available from Good Vibrations.

How To Choose A Vibrator

When shopping for a vibe, it’s often helpful if you know how sensitive you are, or your partner is. If you’ve used a vibrator before, what worked in the past? If you’re looking for your first one, do you know if you like strong or mild sensations? Or perhaps you like different things at different times. While vibes create a sensation that’s undeniably different from anything else, if you know that your partner prefers a soft touch or a firm one, that’ll help you narrow the choices...
