Ann Summers: Vibrator Heaven

by

Kissing.
Clothes off.
Lights out.
Missionary.
Orgasm for one- or two if you’re lucky.

Sex can easily become such a formulaic process that we don’t think twice about it. It becomes routine, predictable and boring, making sex seem obligatory rather than what we want it to be: exciting, fun, and orgasmic! Finding time for elaborate role playing fantasies is difficult, and dealing with the messiness of chocolate syrup and whipped cream after a long day, can seem unappealing and maybe too sticky for some. But there are lots of ways of putting some spice into your sex life.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of receiving two lovely vibrators that have done wonders for me, and I have two people to thank: my boyfriend, and Ann Summers, a racy sex shop that has franchises all over the United Kingdom. (Seriously, vibrators have reached a new dimension.) Their most popular (and highly rated) sex toy is the Rampant Rabbit Vibrator Series. Their basic design is a silicone covered dildo with a smaller rabbit head attached to its bottom side, whose famous ears are where the vibrator gets it name.

Depending on what you like, there are several different off shoots of this basic design. The Rampant Rabbit Thruster is the most popular one, making its debut on “Sex in the City,” and breaking sales records for Ann Summers the day after the episode aired: 1 million of them sold! Its design fits its name. Covered in bright sparkly blue silicone, the vibrator contains metal beads that move up and down at six different speeds, creating a wonderfully fluid and sensual thrusting motion. Meanwhile, the rabbit’s ears are tickling away at your clitoris, buzzing in four different styles. The first one is like an appetizer, its gentle steady vibration arouses and prepares you for more. The second one, vibrates in a musical like rhythm, with two short gentle vibrations and ending with a long accentuated vibration. I found this style to be particularly delightful medium between the really light and strong vibrations, one that you can linger on and pleasure yourself for ages, right on the edge of orgasm. The third style has quick detached (almost like the rabbit is hopping!) strong vibrations, and the fourth style is a steady, powerful vibration that satisfies that craving for a strong and fast stimulation seconds before orgasming. Great invention. Complaints? The first line of these that came out had a few faulty mechanics, rendering the thrusting motion dysfunctional. But apparently, they’ve fixed that now. Go figure.

If however, you are feeling more adventurous, the Rampant Rabbit Thriller is a one of a kind experience. “6 ½ inch shaft covered in 93 soft arousing nodules, 5 inch girth, with 5 speed metal ball shaft rotation.” says Ann Summers. The thing looks closer to a battle mace. I thought at first, “no fucking way is that going anywhere near me, let alone inside me!” But appearances can be deceiving. You just need to relax, breathe deeply and use generous portions of water or silicone based lube. The “arousing nodules” (just get the battle mace image out of your head for a minute) feels a bit strange at first, but once you get a few inches inside, it feels remarkably wonderful- and subtly different from the thrusting motion many of us are used to. This Rampant Rabbit swirls around, giving a deep, sensual massage, while its 5 speeds of clitoral stimulation add additional pleasure.

So if you’re looking for spice, these vibrators are like cayenne pepper. And by that, I mean hot and tingly, not er- spicy vaginas (or butts ^_^).

    Ok…masturbation for women is a step forward, but what about men??

    I like how they try to make vibrators more cute and non-threatening like involving rabbits or making the shaft into a little person with a face.

  4. Madameve Says:

    yeah that video for the thruster is awesome, esp with the soothing voice over it.

    As for masturbation for men, I realize Ann Summers designed the rampant rabbit for women. However, theres nothing on the label that says men can’t use it. Same thing with things like condoms, made for men, women can use them too, (cut them and use them as dental dams) A man could use the rabbit head on say, their anus. In any case, I think putting more focus on female pleasure is crucial, seeing as the majority of sex media is geared toward male pleasure. Look at mainstream porn, look at the hypersexualization of women as sexual objects of desire for men. Lesbians are only considered ‘okay’ if they’re on display for men, and of course, they both usually end up ‘getting fucked” by the guy afterward.

    And seriously, there are plenty of things to help guys masturbate, asking what you asked is kind of like asking, theres women studies, why aren’t there men studies? I don’t mean to be harsh, but the truth is, there is a hefty percentage of women in the world who will NEVER orgasm. You’ll never find that with men.

    Regardless of that, there are masturbatory toys made for males, check ‘fleshlights’ out. They’re pretty boss.

    Hm, I had no idea that that vibrator on Sex in the City was actually in production.

    Madameve:

    The existence of Women’s Studies (which I minored in) HARDLY precludes the urgent need for Men’s Studies. Just ask your local gender studies professor. Women are organized; men are not. How should a man be feminist? Egalitarian? And how should such a man date? I think I’m pretty clear evidence that that’s not possible, which is a pretty damning rebuke of feminism and Women’s Studies efforts in the first place. You can’t achieve equality between two groups through a process that completely excludes one of those groups, representing 50% of the population. Duh.

    Look at the VOLUNTARY self-objectification of women and tell me whether I’m supposed to be offended when they are or when they aren’t. (or when they try to self-objectify but it doesn’t work on me) Look at the rape prevention efforts undermined by women themselves. I spent years telling men that yes means yes and no means no, only to discover that women virtually never mean what they say in dating. How naive I was! To think you could trust a person’s word! I unearthed data positively correlating not asking or paying for dates with gender-based violence, but I’m met with knee-jerk outrage when I point it out because women would rather keep their patriarchal advantage of being able to date without asking anyone out or having to pay for it. Chivalry is romanticized; equality asexualized. Kilianski and Rudman (1998) found that women want the advantages of both feminism and sexism, with the costs of neither. They also found that as long as men *pretend* not to be sexist, they do at least as well with women as truly egalitarian men; the cost of being a feminist or egalitarian male is much greater than the benefit. This is the female pleasure we should be concerned about? You don’t have to ask or pay for dates now, but you can get raped later?

    Nessie explained to me at length how masturbation is sufficient enough a sex life in itself. I didn’t realize she meant I was supposed to masturbate *her*.

    Not all men can get off anally, nor should those who can be expected to. You’re falling back on sophistry to rationalize hypocrisy. I don’t want a fleshlight, nor have I even seen them featured here.

    Clearly, women and sexist men together will continue to collude in monopolistic power. There is no provision for the existence of feminist men or the consideration of their perspectives and experiences.
