Do you think silicone dulls vibration?

I don't know if I'm just on a string of bad luck, or if this is true across the board, but I can NOT find a silicone toy that has vibes as strong as some of my plastic ones that I really like.

Does this have to do with the material? Or am I just not looking at the right ones?

Yes. Silicone is very dense and shock absorbent, and therefor will dull silicone.

Then I guess I just don't understand what all the 'buzz' is about. Either I'm in a minority that takes a fairly strong vibration to actually get somewhere, or people are foregoing pleasure for the safety factor of the material. I also have the same problem with a lot of the plastic toys I get that have that 'velvety' texture to them.

Well, if you're talking about vibrating dildos, yeah, they're pretty ineffective and I generally find it a waste of time to even use the vibration option. However, there are many excellent vibrators that are covered in a very thin film of silicone (Je Joue and Lelo), which would hardly dampen the vibrations. I'm not sure if these are what you're referring to, though.

i don't know how i never made this connection before, but i've found it to be true now that i think back on it.

It sucks. I really like the feel of silicone, but I NEED strong vibrations. Is there some sort of material that feels similar?

Um, I've never had this problem. I'm interested in what toys you're using?

Silicone does tend to do that. You have to find vibrators that use strong motors or thin silicone to get around it.

Yep, I've noticed this, too. I use silicone vibrators as I find that they tend to be quieter than most other options (maybe just the ones I've used, I don't know), but they're nowhere near as powerful as I need them to be to fully enjoy them.
