When it comes to all things vibration, a lot of toys can start to look (and feel) the same. Enter: floating motors. Chances are, you’ve probably never seen anything quite like this collection. It includes vaginal, clitoral, c-ring, and dual-action vibrators to suit just about any preference.

So, what are floating motors?

Put simply, “floating” is a way to describe look, in combination with functionality. Each toy in this collection features one or two motors to put penetrating, but quiet vibration right where you want it. Because the motors are somewhat removed from the main bodies of the toys, the collection has a unique set of traits: low volume, concentrated sensation, and designs that pique curiosity.

Let’s break it down further.

Volume

Self-explanatory. If you have concerns about a toy’s buzzing being heard in the next room, low volume is a must. As this is a hallmark of this collection, the lack of noise from any of the four toys cuts down on your chances of being overheard. Well, of the toy being overheard. There are no guarantees keeping your voice down will be easy, however.

Note, as with most toys on the quieter side, floating motor vibrators aren’t necessarily 11 of 10 on the power scale. But don’t count them out. Power isn’t everything. As appealing as high-powered toys sound (see what I did there?), they can be too strong for most. The most powerful of toys on the market can lead to overstimulation and, unfortunately, a numbing feeling. And that’s no fun.

But, if they’re not super strong, why bother? One word: edging. First, if you’ve never tried it, you’re missing out. Second, if you’ve never heard of it, Healthline puts it well. saying it’s “the practice of stopping yourself from reaching orgasm right when you’re on the cusp — the metaphorical ‘edge’ right before you fall off the cliff into sexual climax.”  It’s said that edging can lead to a more satisfying orgasm. Taking things slow and working your way from peak to peak means you need a toy that doesn’t overpower.

Alternatively, if you’re not into edging, consider foreplay. Giving your body and mind the chance to build excitement is an essential part of any sexual experience, solo or with a partner.

Sensation

Experiment with me right quick. If you have another toy, grab it and turn it on for a moment. More than likely, vibration can be felt all over the body of the toy, a trait that’s known as broad stimulation. While this type of sensation is loved by many, it just doesn’t do the trick for everyone.

If you’ve ever found yourself wishing your toy’s vibrations were concentrated in a smaller area, you might favor pinpoint stimulation. It’s also possible you might like both, just for different erogenous zones, but that’s a blog for another day.

It’s worth noting that the size of a toy doesn’t necessarily determine whether you’ll get broad or pinpoint stimulation. That depends on motor placement and type. And, if you’re a fan of sensation concentrated in one to two spots, a floating motor toy is a good fit.

Design

Okay, okay so this one was more just for me. You can’t deny floating motors look pretty damn cool. When I first saw the suspended motors and classic color, what came to mind was aerial arts. Think arching dance-like movements, limbs artfully tangled in silks, and silhouettes against dark backdrops. The collection just says “sexy” to me.

And there you have it! That’s everything you need to know about this exclusive collection. To summarize, picking from these toys is a great option for anyone looking to experiment with slowly building pleasure (edging or foreplay), low volume options, or concentrated sensation.

If you’re curious and want to try one out, I’d personally recommend Tight Call. Though it’s slated as a clitoral toy, nothing’s stopping you from exploring all your favorite spots or handing over control to someone else!

If you think a different floating motor toy might be more your style, reach out to a Pure Romance Partner you’ve partied with or find one nearby and ask for personalized recommendation!
