What's the Difference?


Nope, pulsators and vibrators are not the same thing! Are you asking yourself "What is a pulsator?" or wondering about difference between a pulsator and a vibrator? 

Vibration is caused by a weighted motor spinning very, very quickly inside the toy. Vibrators are great when you want a more intense, focused sensation and they’re perfect for nerve-dense areas like the clit.

Pulsators thrust back and forth on their own, using a combination of strong magnets and German engineering. Their steady massaging sensation is perfect for G-spot or prostate play and feels a lot like the motions of a particularly skilled and tireless partner.
