Vibes vs. Clitoral Hood

Vibes vs. Clitoral Hood

Rin (aka Nire) Rin (aka Nire)
I don't know if I'd say I have a clit of steel - it's not hard for me to get off - but it seems I have a high vibration tolerance. When using a vibe on my clitoris, I get the best sensations when I pull back the clitoral hood and put the vibe right us against it. It feels fan-freaking-tastic!

From what I've heard, most women don't do this. I'm curious what the Eden community has to say. (Guys, feel free to answer for your ladies if you want.)

For me, my clit is too sensitive for that. I prefer stronger vibrations, just not directly on my clit. If I wanted to do that, I think I would have to be strapped down so I don't thrash uncontrollably.

I do this for two reasons. One is that it just plain feels better that way. The other is that I have my hood pierced and if I don't move it it gets in the way of the vibrator and causes issues.

Heehee, I do that sometimes - start bucking a lot - but more often I completely freeze and can't move until I work up a lot of resolve. LOVE IT!

I can't. I can't touch my clit in certain ways with a vibe or the intensity causes me to wince (and not in a good way).

I only do that if the vibe is pretty weak. (The RO-150mm slimline bullet comes to mind!) I don't need to do that with stronger vibes, and it would probably be too much for me if I tried to do that with a stronger vibe.

I do this most of the time. I have the Classic Clit O Steel. I move the Wahl around so it's right on top of the good parts.

I'm allergic to dairy products so no cheesecake.

Other. My clitoral hood is super tiny, so it doesn't actually cover my clit, it just sits above it. I don't have the option of pulling it back or not.

I don't like pinpointed stimulation right on my clit though, even though I do need strong vibrations. The feeling is more intense, but it's a totally different feeling for me, and isn't really pleasurable. It almost reminds me of hitting my funnybone.

I prefer to use toys with a broader surface, so that it does make contact with my clit, but the vibrations are also spread out to the area around it. I also love my Form 2, which vibrates on either side while also sending the vibrations through my clit.

I do the same thing when I use my fingers. I will put a finger on either side of my clit so that I'm touching the sides of it, and the area around it, but not touching right on it.

I kind of wish I had a bigger clitoral hood. Based on me liking more indirect stimulation, I would probably enjoy using vibrators through it.

I actually find I get off best angling the vibe atop my clitoral hood. Lets me put the most pressure there. It doesn't so much cover my clit, though, as chill out right above it.

I guess it's all about your anatomy. ¯\(°_o)/¯

depends on the vibe

Never really thought about it. But it takes a bit of work to actually get to my clit as it's itty-bitty. Seems to work okay regardless. It's pretty sensitive even with the hood in place. Now you've got me curious, so I'll have to try it, but I think it would end up being painful for me if I hit it for more than a moment.

Good to know about hood piercings. I only had mine for a few days before I took it out as it was crooked & not the way I wanted it. But I'll have to take that into account if I ever think about having it repierced.

No way. That would be too much sensation in an uncomfortable way. The part of my clit that feels the best to rub is higher up, anyway, and to one side. It's definitely an on-top-of-the-hood place.

Everyone is different, in terms of sensation. It's natural to have different reactions to different vibes.

However, you must be a total awful person to not like cheesecake.

OMG, thank you for saying what I was thinking. I've always been confused about my clit. It takes a lot to get me off, but I can't stand pinpoint stimulation!

If I have already had one clitoral orgasm, it takes stronger stimulation for me to have another. I'll pull back on my hood a little bit.

I love direct pressure and rumbly vibes! I can only handle them with my clit hood pulled back sometimes, though. It's usually to push me over the edge when I'm having a hard time coming.

I can't get off on anything less than intense, direct contact with the clit. It's really sort of annoying, because I can enjoy other forms of masturbatory play, like the use of a simple dildo or insertable vibrators, but I'm not actually going to orgasm without additional stimulation to the clit. Moreover, the power of the vibrations have to be on an Eden scale of 4 to 5 (really, more like a 5+ but I've learned to be patient) to even get my attention. Anything less feels like an annoying little buzz and isn't really pleasant at all.

Way too sensitive to do this! I like more indirect stimulation, pulling back the hood is way too overwhelming, it actually feels somewhat painful.

Update: okay, I'll say I have a clit of steel. Turns out I can do it with a Hitachi, too. At least on low. Haven't attempted high yet.

Mine's an every now and then sort of deal. I have longer labia and I think what's probably a larger clitoral hood as well. It's typically really easy for me to get off, my bf calls me "push button," but occasionally when I use toys it does feel like the skin over my clit is getting in the way or making it take longer.

I developed something of a technique where I'll press the vibe against my clit and lips and then move it slightly upwards in such a way that pulls up the hood just enough to make things feel right.

Usually when people have an "oh god, Never!" option on a poll instead of just "nope, not me," I say... 'well, oh god never is kind of overkill...'

But for this poll? I was actually cringing and saying "Oh Gawd! Never!" before I read the poll option. That would just be too much for me *faint*

MWAHAHAAAAA!!! I have found your weakness! *strokes invisible evil goatee*

Yeah, I should have put something a little less extreme for the "definite no" option, but it seems like what I did put is working out for most posters.
