These Vibrating Apps Turn Your Phone Into A Sex Toy

Illustrated by Louisa Cannell.
Vibrators, those simple sex toys that many of us have learned to depend on and love, have a complicated history. These gadgets were actually first created to relieve doctors treating women with "hysteria" with manual genital massages from getting hand cramps.
But before long, vibrators moved out of doctors' offices and into catalogues, marketed as "personal massagers." Today, you can easily find vibrators in almost any sex shop, drugstore, or online at Amazon. But did you know that just about everyone has a tiny vibrator in their pocket 24/7? It's your phone. That's right: There's an app for that.

Actually, there are at least 500 apps for turning your phone into a vibrator. (I mean, I didn't count, but I did type both "vibrator app" and "vibration app" into Play Store and came away with pages upon pages of options, so 500 feels about right.) I'm all about experimentation, so I'm listing the best-rated apps below in case you want to give them a try — and also including some of the hilarious descriptions. But please, cover your phone in a silicone case and remember to clean it both before and after.
But buyer beware: If you need strong vibrations to orgasm, these apps probably won't do it for you. Still, if you're in a pinch, they could come in handy!
