What Makes a Sex Machine a Sex Machine?

What makes a sex machine a sex machine?

Sex machines are basically mechanical devices created to simulate the sensation of interactive sex. They are typically powered by a motor that creates very strong vibrations or a rotational force. Basically, it can move a dildo in and out to mimic the sensations of penetrative sex but at turbo speed and with powerful vibrations (if you want).

Different kinds of machines aim to mimic different sensations. Whether they are mechanical or fully automated, they are all designed to help the user experience the kind of  sexual stimulation that might not otherwise be achievable during solo-play.

Types of Sex Machines

There are several different types of these devices. They each have unique features that stimulate different body parts with different motions. Let me walk you through them!

One of the most popular kinds sex machines are the trusty thrusters. These are also often the physically largest devices. They take up quite a bit of space – but with great dimensions comes also great pleasure
