A gyrating sex toy is a type of vibrator that uses very fast, circular rotation to create sensation. The high-powered gyrations drive a dildo or similar attachment to create deep, penetrating stimulation inside the body. While the vibrator and gyrator both involve a weight spinning off-center, a gyrating sex toy's spinning weight is many times heavier than in a vibrator. The resulting gyrating motion can be used to stimulate the nerve-rich, interior clitoris.
More About Gyrating Sex Toy
In a gyrating vibrator, the rotation happens inside the vibrator. A rotating motor is weighted to one side, and throws its weight around in a way that delivers a thumping motion rather than a typical vibration. The deeper, rumbling type of vibrations a gyrating sex toy produces are believed to more deeply stimulate the clitoris and G-spot resulting in more intense orgasms.
