Top 5 Sex Toys for Newbies

Top 5 Sex Toys for Newbies

Taking the plunge and buying your very first sex toy is exciting and a little bit scary – what if you don’t like it? Or what if you like it too much?!  (We promise that “liking it too much” is a not thing when it comes to pleasure, so no need to worry about that!)

We have compiled a list of our Top 5 Sex Toys for Newbies: whatever the style of toy you think you might like, we have something that’ll suit your desires.

These toys are all rated 5-star on our website, so you can relax in the knowledge that someone has already bought one of these toys and thought it was ace!

All the toys on our Top 5 list are of course body-safe and very affordable – because a great orgasm shouldn’t cost an arm & a leg!

First Sex Toy For Clitoral Stimulation

Most women need clitoral stimulation in order to have an orgasm. It’s no surprise – the clitoris has around 8000 nerve-endings on its very tip so it is a massively important part for pleasure. An estimated 75% of women say they need the right kind of stimulation in the right place on the clitoris for the right length of time to orgasm – and that can be hard work! Which is where a great vibrator comes in. 🙂

The Love Bullet Lipstick Vibe is a bestseller both in our shop in London, and with our website customers.top5_4

Its discreet design and petite size means you can take it everywhere, including on holidays. Store it in your make up bag and no one will be the wiser!

Despite the small size, the Lipstick packs a punch – it’s incredibly powerful and with 8 different settings to explore, you are almost spoilt for choice. This vibrator is USB rechargeable, so you can easily charge it up whilst you are working or surfing your favourite social media sites.

Oh, and it’s fully waterproof!

First Sex Toy For G-spot Stimulation

The G-spot is an area located a couple of inches up on the inside of the vagina. There are doubters, but we say “bah!” to them – the G-spot is an actual area and with the right kind of stimulation, marvelously deep orgasms could come your way!

Our Mini Pink G-spot Vibe is small, slim and quiet, but works top5_1
wonders when applied to the sensitive G-spot area. The bump at the tip of the Mini Pink is there to help find and stimulate the G-spot. A good trick to try is “juicing” the G-spot – rather than sliding the vibe in and out at breakneck speed (often seen in bad porn), slowly work it back & forth on the G-spot itself. The G-spot likes firm pressure, so don’t be shy.

It may feel like you need to go for a pee which can be distracting, but relax into the sensations and you might find that waves of pleasure soon follow.

First Rabbit-Style Vibrator

Rabbit vibrators of old were mainly made out of less-than-great materials and for some unfathomable reason, designed to be huge.

top5_2These days, Rabbit vibrators come in body-safe materials and a range of sizes to suit all tastes. The 5-star toy we’ve added to our Top 5 list of sex toys is Cute Rabbit, a dual-stimulation vibe made from strokeable silicone, which is USB rechargeable and fully waterproof.

The internal shaft is short and smooth, and delivers delicious pressure to the G-spot.  The clit stimulator, which has its own motor, reaches over and offers direct stimulation to the clit.

Dual stimulation toys, i.e toys with a shaft for internal pleasure as well as a built-in clitoral pleaser, are great for bringing on what’s known as blended orgasms: pleasure waves from both clit and G-spot simultaneously. *swoooon*

First Sex Toy For Couples

The Ovo Cock Ring is a stretchy vibrating ring for couples. Worn around the base of the manhood, it enhances erections and provides additional thrills during penetration.top5_3

Ovo is a a little gem for beginners – it is so easy to use. Add a little water-based lube to his semi-erect shaft for comfort, before sliding the ring over the penis and all the way down. The ring stops back-flow of blood and makes the erection both firmer and more sensitive. Switch on the one-speed bullet before she positions herself on top – this way she can grind against the vibration in ways that feel best for her.

Cock rings are the perfect accessory for introducing toys into the bedroom; small and non-threatening, and with enough functions to keep you both happy.

First Sex Toy For Anal Play

Cute beginners butt plug with removable mini bullet – perfect for first time anal play.  This small, ergonomically curved butt plug has a sensual, shapely body designed in harmony with the curves of your body and a narrow neck for comfort.top5_5

The tiny vibrating bullet fits into a hole hidden in the base, and the vibrations can help relax tense tushies.

A lot (a lot!) of people enjoy anal play and even more people fantasize about trying it. The trick is to go slow and use lots of lube – preferably a lube designed for the delicate rectal membranes.

A butt plug offers fullness and pressure, and the additional vibrations delivers super-thrilling sensations.

So there you have it – our Top 5 Sex Toys for Newbies. Only one question remains: which sex toy will YOU choose?

 

 

And the Best Vibrator is…

And the Best Vibrator is…

The most common question asked in our  London sex shop is “Which is the best vibrator?

Customers are somewhat disappointed when we explain that there is no easy answer – when you have a choice of a cherry-picked selection of all the very best toys the industry has to offer, there is not one single toy that is better than all the rest. They are all great!

What works for one person won’t necessarily work in the same way for someone else as desire and pleasure are very subjective.

Your friend may love the latest ‘MonsterDongDildo’ and it might work fantastically well for her – but if you are not into over-sized playthings without vibration, it’s not going to work for you.

Instead of pointing to the latest or most expensive toy (because most expensive doesn’t always equal best), we answer the question with one of our own:

What would you like your vibrator to do for you?

The answer may seem obvious (duh!), but actually requires a little thought and perhaps an internal dialogue with your vag. Would  like an external toy, or an internal toy, or a vibrating toy or a toy that warms up? So many questions!

Are Clitoral Vibrators The Best?

Clitoral vibrators are great. About 75% of women say they need clitoral stimulation, in just the right way, to have an orgasm. This may mean a continuous high-pitched buzzing or fun patterns like pulsing – it depends on what your clitoris likes (keep for future reference: your clit should always have a say in the vibrator you choose).

You won’t know what you like until you try – it’s  a bit like choosing a new dish at a favorite restaurant: you have a sneaky suspicion that you’re going to love it, but until you’ve had that first mouthful you won’t know for sure.

A small clit vibe with a selection of settings is a great choice for someone who doesn’t necessarily want anything for internal use, or someone looking for something a li’l extra during penetrative sex.

Are G-Spot Vibrators The Best?

G-spot vibrators are amazing, especially if you love G-spot stimulation or are keen on trying to coax the G-spot out of its hiding place to work some magic.

G-spot vibes have been designed for internal use, but there is no reason why they can’t also offer clitoral pleasure. Just because it has a shaft doesn’t mean you are limited to using it only on the one pleasure (G) spot…

Experiment with you chosen vibe – vibrations can be great for stuffed sinuses (true!), sore necks or tired feet. The only limit to what sex toys can do is your imagination. 🙂

Are Rabbit Vibrators The Best?

Rabbit vibrators are the bestselling sex toys in the whole world – more women have had their first orgasm, or their most intense orgasm, with a rabbit-style vibrator than any other type.

A rabbit style vibe is a toy with dual stimulators: a shaft that goes inside the vagina and a clitoral stimulator that reaches over and teases the clit.

The internal shaft often comes with an additional feature such as rotating beads, rippling or pulsing which can elevate the status of the pleasure enjoyed to ‘mind-blowing’.

Dual style vibes can look a little bulky and intimating  in comparison to small clit vibes, but they are great toys and if you are curious – try one like this slimmer Rabbit vibe.

Are Waterproof Vibes The Best?

Yes, they are – if you prefer pleasure in the bath or shower.  For many, the only private time they get to enjoy involves the bathroom, so a waterproof vibrator can be a godsend.

Not all sex toys are submergible so it’s always best to check a toy’s tech spec to find out if this is important for you. However, if you aren’t planning on jiggling your jewel under the waterline, it might not matter so much.

Are Rechargeable Vibrators The Best?

Categorically, yes. Plugging your favourite muffin buffer into a USB port or wall socket is a fantastic way of keeping it ready for action at all times, because you never know when the mood for a ‘menage a moi’ is going to strike. Batteries run out at the most inopportune moments, and anyone who has been there, done that will agree a rechargeable vibe is the way forward.

Again, the choice between batteries or socket is subjective and it could be that you prefer batteries – which is perfectly ok. 🙂

Are High-Powered Vibrators The Best?

Not necessarily – for someone who likes a gentle buzz, a strong vibrator can be a real mood killer. Before making your selection, try the intensity of the vibe on the tip of your nose: you’ll get a good indication of the power it’s packing.

If you aren’t sure, we’d recommend choosing a vibrator with intensity controls. Going from gentle to intense, and then back to gentle can be a fantastically sexy way of teasing yourself to incredible orgasms. Work those buttons, gurl!

Are Luxury Vibrators The Best?

Like many things in life, you get what you pay for. We have seen number of unfavorable reviews of the £1-vibe from a well-know highstreet retailer, with many deeming it “rubbish”. This is understandable – a vibrator costing only £1 clearly hasn’t been built to last. It might even conk out during first use – it happens.

High-end vibrators like Lelo are built to last, if not a life time, at least a good few years. The motors are near-silent, the materials used are body-safe, the designs are beautiful…  Lelo toys are simply stunning, but comes at a hefty price.

Choosing a mid-priced vibrator, like our range of Sh! toys, you are guaranteed a great product at purse-friendly prices. An orgasm doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg – but £1 is perhaps unlikely to get you there…

There is no one vibrator that is “the best” – but considering the points above, you’ll be able to confidently choose a vibrator that is best for you.

 

How to use a g-Spot Vibrator

Q&A: How Do I Use a G-spot Vibrator?

So I bought a g spot vibrator but umm I don’t know how to use it, how far inside should it go, because it can not go inside… like less than a quarter of if can, and it hurts, so I give up and uhg, i really want to use it but its painful and hence i think im using it wrong. thank you and i’m sorry for this REALLY awkward question, wait i haven’t asked my question, sorry, how do you use a g spot vibrator?

Hello there,

Many thanks for your email.

We are a little concerned about the vaginal pain – we’d recommend getting that seen to, first of all. It might not be anything serious at all – perhaps a little tear in the delicate membranes – but any and all muff-pain should always be checked out by a professional.

A little bit of knowledge on the G-spot itself is a good place to start.

G-Spot picture

The G-spot is located close to the entrance of the vagina, about half a finger in and up on the front wall. Have a feel with a lubed-up finger – the ridged area is the G-spot.

Always use a good lube for all sex play, including when experimenting with using G-spot vibrators. Add lube to fingers, toy and muffkin – you might find this makes a huge difference.

Are you comfortable with other kinds of penetration, i.e with fingers and/or penises? It is possible that the girth of the toy is wrong for you – a toy that is too big will be uncomfortable. An intact hymen could also make things a little painful.

It’s important to be fully aroused before going G-spotting. The G-spot grows with arousal, making it easier to find and stimulate. Inserting a toy into a body that isn’t yet ready for it can make the experience uncomfortable and painful – not good.

demona-wave-vibratorA toy designed for G-spot pleasure doesn’t have to go very far in to be able to stimulate the right area. The important part of the design is that the toy has a bump or an upwards curve on the tip  – this bump or curve is the part that can work magic. A G-spot orgasm takes time but is worth the extra effort. 😉

We recommend “juicing the G-spot” – firm, circular motions on the area. Make sure you’ve emptied the bladder beforehand so you can just relax and enjoy the sensations.

Good luck!

Love, Team Sh! xx

Q&A

Will a G-Spot Vibrator Find My G Spot?

Dear Sh!

I’ve heard about the G-Spot but have never found mine and I’m wondering if a G-Spot vibrator will find it for me?

Thanks

Sue

[Names have been changed for anonymity] 

 

Hi Sue,

G-Spot vibrators don’t have built-in pleasure radars for instantly finding and satisfying your G-Spot – sorry!

There’s lots of disagreement and conflicting evidence about the G-Spot – check out the wiki page to see just how much doctors, scientists and researchers are tying themselves up in knots about it. ( grab a cuppa first because it’s quite a read!)

It’s great ( and about time!) that female anatomy, sexuality and pleasure is finally being researched but we have to remember that this is all incredibly recent – the internal clitoris wasn’t discovered until 1998 and it still took another 10 years before French doctors Odile Buisson and Pierre Foldes created the first three-dimensional sonography of the female pleasure system, which showed that the structure of the clitoris was a LOT larger than the external little pea most of us think of and actually it is mostly internal.

[To put this into perspective, the first sonography of the penis was conducted in the 1970’s]

After centuries of ignoring female pleasure and arousal in the medical world ( and millennium of desexualizing  it into female hysteria ) it seems the race is ON to make conclusive statements about our bodies and how they respond.

Whilst the hoo-haw rolls on, we prefer to go on our own evidence of chatting to 1,000’s of women over the years and conclude that whether or not the G-Spot is indeed a specific spot inside that produces a very different kind of orgasm or is actually part of the internal clitoris and thus basically a clitoral orgasm, is, in the end, immaterial.

You’ll see from the article that many medical & scientific peeps believe that the G-Spot is an imagined holy-grail of female pleasure that doesn’t actually exist. But this doesn’t tally with our experience or ’empirical research’! It seems to us that most ‘experts’ haven’t actually talked to women about their experiences, as we have.  Nor have they experienced G-Spot pleasure or the squirting, AKA female ejaculation associated with it…

Many ( we’d say most) women feel there is a certain area on the front wall of their vagina that feels a kind of ‘Oh! wow!’ very different to rest.  For some women this is every time, but for most it’s a very-hit and miss affair.

The real question is whether we all respond to G-Spot stimulation in the same way?

The answer is a very obvious no  ( we’re resisting putting a duh! here)  How turned-on we are, what kind of pressure or stimulation, whether we’re feeling safe and relaxed or anxious or hurried or a million other different factors…

The one thing we think we can say for certain is that the G-Spot is an elusive little beast and its awakening is very much dependent on how aroused you are, how firm the pressure it receives, for how long and how much you are able to relax into its sensations…

We’ve met lots of ‘medical experts’ ourselves who believe that the G-Spot is a myth and we’ve had many a passionate debate about it.

We believe that it’s more than likely that all/most women do have the capacity to orgasm from inside, but whether the orgasm is coming from their G-Spot or internal clitoris, who knows…

And it the end, does it matter what it’s called?

The place where we agree with many experts is that no woman should feel inadequate or a failure because she doesn’t spontaneously combust at the stimulation of any pleasure spot.

Finding your G spot should be a pleasurable journey of sensations

…with meanderings off the path as your passion dictates, not a single-minded search without deviation.

Taking yourself on any journey of sexual discovery is worthwhile ( in fact highly recommended!) but embarking with grim determination on a hunt for your G-Spot or becoming hung up on not finding it, nor having a G-Spot orgasm, certainly isn’t!

It’s also counter-productive, because, whilst orgasm may feel like a build-up of beautiful tension, being relaxed enough to be swamped by the build-up  is the key to female orgasm.

That’s why no toy can guarantee an orgasm, especially not a G-Spot orgasm!

G-Spot Vibrators are shaped, with either curved or bulbous heads, to make G-Spot for stimulation easier, but they don’t contain any radars or magical G-Spot awakening qualities…

They’re simply fabulous tools to add to the journey and may make discoveries easier…

Being receptive to G-Spot pleasure generally takes a long build-up, and using your fingers can be tiring.

All our vibrators for the G-spot feature the firm texture, extra reach and curved or swollen head which should make finding and massaging your G-Spot easier.

The G-Spot seems to respond better to pressure and motion than to vibration; A G-Spot vibrator offers you the option of adding a buzz, which your clitoris will likely enjoy, adding to your arousal and making everything swell and become more receptive…

(  if you are taking yourself on a G-Spot journey, it better to not allow yourself to orgasm, clitorally, if you can help it! )

There’s not a great deal of size options with G-Spot  vibes, so it’s also worth considering a  Silicone Dildo – with  over 30 different shapes and sizes our hand-poured range, they may offer you more bespoke and fulfilling choices than the vibes.

 

advice g spot

How to use a G-Spot Vibrator

The G-Spot is on the front wall of the vagina – some say about three inches inside, behind the pubic bone. For others their ‘special spot’ is not so far in – perhaps an inch or so.

Similarly, some women find their G-Spot to be very responsive whilst others have a hard time waking theirs up.

The most definitive thing we can say, after 20+ years advising women on this most mysterious of erogenous zones, is that it might be elusive but it’s definitely worth exploring!

However,  no toy can guarantee orgasms – G-Spot or otherwise – so please don’t buy a G-Spot vibrator or dildo expecting it to act like a sat-nav that will definitely take you to your desired destination…

Learning to identify and relax into the sensations is the only way to identify your G-Spot and perhaps achieve a G-Spot orgasm.

That said, the curved end of a G-Spot toy will allow you to try to discover yours, because the shape naturally probes the area you’re looking to explore.

The G-Spot can take time to respond and when it does, it’s more likely to be through pressure and motion than delicate touch or vibration.

The G-Spot can take a long time to awaken and is most likely to do so when you are incredibly turned on and it is getting lots of attention.

The G-Spot loves consistent firm stimulation and if it receives this,  it swells and grows from being the pea-size to walnut-sized.

G-Spot Only: Vibrator Styles and Shapes

Desire G-Spot Vibrator
Desire G-Spot Vibrator £49

Vibrators that are designed for G-Spot stimulation only are always shaft-shaped with a curved or angled head.  When used inside, this style of vibrator allows you to hone in on the internal sensations without any distraction. That said, any toy that vibrates, whatever its size or shape, can be enjoyed externally so if it doesn’t help you find your G-Spot, all is not lost – you can always enjoy its buzz on your clitoris instead!

  • A  G-Spot Vibrator  with a round, bulbous head provides a feeling of fullness and a large surface area  with which to massage the area – try using small  circular motions to identify and awaken your G-Spot.
  • A vibrator with a flat end, such as Lelo Gigi  or Picobong Moka, also gives a large stimulating area, delivering  firm pressure across the whole surface. Used with a small in-out motion, it can tap away at the designated area.

Some of these vibrators may be too large for many women to enjoy, especially during a solo sex session.

Lots of women don’t include self-penetration as part of their pleasure-itinerary, so a smaller G-Spot toy might be preferable on your first forrays into G-Spot pleasuring.

  • At only 4 inches long, the Mini G Spot vibrator is the shortest G-Spot vibrator we carry – but still plenty long enough for G-Spot probing (remember it’s somewhere 1-3 inches inside).
  • For a super-slim shaft, the Diamond G-Spot Vibrator offers very precise, directional G-Spot stimulation – though this may be too precise for those who haven’t found theirs yet.

G-Spot Vibrators that offer clitoral stimulation too.

G-Spot Rabbit
G-Spot Rabbit £39

There are pluses and minuses to having dual stimulation during your G-Spot search. Whilst adding clitoral stimulation can never be a bad thing for most women, it can make it difficult to identify and zone in on specific G-Spot sensations.

  • A rabbit vibrator with massaging beads has given many women a ‘blended orgasm’  ie clitoral and internal, possibly G-Spot. You can, very carefully, bend the shaft so as to increase the arc of the stimulation.
  • A revolutionary vibrator, the Groovy Chick Massager works on a pivotal action and taps against your G-Spot. The unique action can make self G-Spot stimulation easier.
  • C-shaped vibrators such as We Vibe and Leo Noa are designed to stimulate your clitoris and G-Spot at the same time. They are also designed to be used during intercourse.

 

Some G-Spot Vibrator Tips & Tricks

  • Whilst stimulating your G-Spot, press down on your lower belly to make your G-Spot connect even better with the vibrator stimulation.
  • Try a long G-Spot vibrator ‘from behind’: on all fours, reach behind you and slip the vibrator inside with curve facing downwards. Although it’s a tricky position for solo sex, it’s a great position finding and stimulating your special spot.
  • Dont rush it! G-Spot orgasms need time to build. Tantalise yourself by inserting the vibrator only a short way in, with the head stimulating just inside. Only when you’re really aroused, work the vibrator further inside to pleasure your G-Spot.
  • G-Spot vibrators don’t only have to stimulate your G-Spot – the wide/flared base of many G-Spot vibrators (like the G-Twist), acts as  guard making this vibrator anal-safe for stimulating your man’s prostate gland; the curve of the vibrator offers precise prostate-pleasuring and the ridges down the vibrators shaft feel as sensuous anally as they do vaginally. Use lots of lube and always cover your G-Spot vibrator with a condom if using anally.

Where is the G-Spot? How to Find it & Have a G-Spot Orgasm

‘Will a G-Spot toy help me find mine?’

‘I bought a G-Spot vibrator and played with it, but nothing happened – why?’

We’re asked these questions, and countless other G-Spot queries, all the time in-store.

Despite the hype, for most of us, our G-Spots are not easy to find or stimulate, so don’t think you are the only woman in the world unable to have wall-to-wall G-Spot orgasms or to experience female ejaculation.

If you haven’t felt your G-Spot, or more specifically pleasure from your G-Spot, you are, in fact, in the majority.

Follow our advice below, and read our other advice on the G-Spot to help discover yours, but please keep in mind; this is meant to be a pleasurable journey of exploration, not a grim expedition to the G-pole!

 

Arousal is No1 key to responding to G Spot sensations…

There’s absolutely no point or pleasure in going after a G-Spot orgasm without being very, VERY aroused.

Certainly, as you become aroused, the spongy area around the G-Spot will become swollen and engorged with blood.

But G-Spot sensations don’t always necessarily feel pleasurable which is why it’s important to be really turned-on. Only then, can you be responsive to G-Spot sensations and the pleasure this can give you.

So read erotica, watch a sexy movie, enjoy a sensual massage from your partner, tease your nipples and your clitoris, but don’t let yourself orgasm.

Finding your G-Spot with fingers…

We recommend trying to find your G-Spot with your fingers first as they will feel the different texture of the G-Spot.

Firstly,  find a position that’s comfortable for you and for reaching inside yourself; try lying on your back with your knees drawn up, on all fours or squatting.

With your palm covering your vulva and clitoris, slowly slip 1 or 2 fingers inside yourself. We highly recommend using lubricant to really enhance your sensitivity.

Your fingers will naturally curve forwards, as you slip them inside, but crook them forward some more, towards your pubic bone.

G-Spot picture
G-Spot picture

Your G-Spot may not be as far inside as you think…

Feel for a slightly bumpy/ridged area on the front wall of your vagina, approximately half a fingers’ length inside.

It could be less, or slightly more. Somewhere between an inch (or less) up to 3 inches inside – so don’t go delving too deeply!

The texture and surface of the G Spot feels different from the typically smooth walls of the vagina.

The bumpy ridges are erectile tissue that swells and hardens when you become aroused.

Some women find that their G-Spot can actually be stimulated from the outside – try firm rubbing or patting around the urethral opening (where you pee from) to see if this works for you.

 

Using Sex Toys or Vibrators to Find Your G-Spot

Whilst we recommend learning to identify the spot using your fingers, it can be difficult and tiring to stimulate it to the point of orgasm solely by hand.

This is where a great G-Spot toy, with a curved, probing end, can help bring on the fireworks.

But there is nothing magical about a G-Spot toy; it’s simply a good tool to keep on the pressure!

There are three types of G spot toys;

 

G-Spot Dildo
G-Spot Dildos £28 – £130

G-Spot Dildo

Firm yet user-friendly with an ergonomic shape and smooth, rounded head for applying pressure on the right spot, these Sh! dildos have been specially designed for G-Spot pleasure.

 

G-Spot Vibrator
G-Spot Vibrators £15 – £134

G-Spot Vibrator

Whilst the G-Spot responds to firm sensations, rather than vibration, a G-Spot vibrator, with its  curved, angled end is specially shaped for exploration, plus it gives you the option of adding a buzz to your play.

Look for a head with a large surface area  to give you the best chance of locating your G-Spot.

 

Glass Dildo
Glass Dildos £28 -£74

Glass Dildo

Smooth, sleek, intensely firm and weighty, a dildo made of safe glass is probably one of the most G-Spot awakening toys there is.

 

 

How to Pleasure Your G-Spot

The G-Spot responds best to firm pressure and as it swells and hardens (as you become even more aroused) it can take firmer and firmer rubbing.

Stimulate it inside using a ‘come here’ motion of your fingers and circular swirling movements.

With a dildo or vibrator, keep the toy pressed firmly on the spot and move it around in small circular motions.

We call this motion ‘juicing the G-Spot’ and its key to success.

As you ‘juice’, with your other hand, use a finger to press and stimulate the area around your urethral opening.

G-Spot Gel

Tickle Her G Spot Pleasure Gel
Tickle Her G Spot Pleasure Gel (£18)

There is a special cream Tickle Her G-Spot Gel, which receives great reviews from customers and Team Sh! alike.

It is formulated to swell the G-Spot and make it more sensitive; in a world of hype, this stuff really does seem to work…

One of the biggest stumbling blocks to a G-Spot orgasm is feeling like you want to pee.

This feeling is the main reason why women stop themselves having a G-Spot orgasm. You need to get past this feeling, if you are to experience a G-Spot orgasm. Visit the loo before you start, put a towel underneath yourself, and if a worry pops-up, just keep fantasising until it goes away…

Love balls £10 -£129
Love balls £10 -£129

Love Balls are a great way to get yourself a a strong PC muscle, that if you squeeze rhythmically during sex, will also improve your chances /strength of orgasm – both G-Spot and clitoral.

Curved G-Spot Vibrator

The Curved G-Spot vibrator is perfect for anyone who wants to explore their G-Spot, but don’t fancy anything too girthy.

At only 1.25″ wide, this vibrator is about the size of two fingers in width. Exclusive to Sh!, this slim G-Spot vibe quickly made our Best Seller List.

Curved G-Spot Vibrator
Curved G-Spot Vibrator £29

Made from silicone, the best material for all your sex toys, the Curved G-Spot vibe is easy to keep clean and we recommend adding some water-based lube for extra-sensual play.

G-Spot Vibrator with Long Handle

The long handle makes it very easy to manoeuvre and the curvy bumps along the shaft offer extra sensations. A great tip for enhanced pleasure is to use your PC muscle (the internal “hammock” that holds your pelvic organs) to squeeze against the shaft, thus making the most of the gentle bumps.

Making the Most of Your G-Spot

For an additional zing, why not try the Tickle Her G-Spot enhancing gel as well? Designed to draw the blood to your G-Spot, making it throb and pulse, it works marvellously well in conjunction with the Curved G-Spot vibe!

For internal pleasure: choose a vibrator or a dildo

You’ll see from the picture above, your clitoris has two shafts that loop inside and hug the vagina. Your vaginal entrance is also packed with sensitive nerve-endings, so intense pleasure can come from inside too.

Choosing the right shape and size of a penetrative toy IS important.

The right toy for penetrative pleasure is something of a Goldilocks choice; One that’s too big or wide for you will feel uncomfortable, just as a toy that’s too small or slim will feel unfulfilling.

The best way is to think of ( or measure!) the size of your preferred penetrative pleasure object ( fingers? penis? another sex toy?) and  go for similar proportions.

For stronger orgasms through PC Muscle/ Kegal workout – choose love balls

 

Love balls are 2 weighted spheres designed to strengthen the PC muscle, which, in time  will give you stronger orgasms
Love balls are 2 weighted spheres designed to strengthen the PC muscle, which, in time will give you stronger orgasms

 

The key to stronger, longer, more certain orgasms is a strong PC muscle, which you learn to flex during sex is key.

They also seem to be imposrtant to learning how to female ejaculate or ‘squirt’

Love balls, made famous in Fifty Shades of Grey, are 2 heavy balls that you wear inside (vaginally)

The weight means that you naturally tense your PC muscle to keep them in place.

Many women also tell us they find them pleasurable to wear in themselves, as they twirl around in response to your movements.

For your G-Spot – Choose a vibrator or dildo that’s specially shaped for G-Spot pleasure

 

There’s lots of hoo-haw recently about whether the G-Spot exists. We don’t believe there’s been enough proper ‘evidence’ of this and prefer to go on personal research!

It might be that we don’t all respond in the same way but, whether it’s part of the internal clitoris or indeed a special magical ( and illusive!) spot, many, many women report a difference in sensations and orgasmic qualities that come from inside…

Your G-Spot
Your G-Spot

So, we will continue to call it the ‘G-Spot’ and give advice that is gathered from talking to 1000’s of women.

A  toy that has a curved or bulbous head is best suited to finding and stimulating the G-Spot  more easily and more comfortably, than a straight-sided toy.

A vibrator with a curved and/or bulbous tip can find & stimulate the G-Spot more easily, than a straight toy

Beginners Guide to Buying first Strap On

How To Choose A Vibrator

Choosing a vibrator is a very personal thing and what works for one woman, whether in shape, size, feel or even colour, may not work for the next.

With so many different styles of vibrators, let alone different materials and settings, we know it can feel a bit overwhelming trying to choose a vibrator, especially if it’s your first vibrator and have no idea what to look for…

So we’ve put together a simple guide, covering the basics for those starting out on their journey of vibrator discovery.

The 1st question to ask yourself is; ‘What do I want my vibrator mostly for…?

This is the most important starting point. Like a zen diagram, from here you’ll be able to whittle down or open up your possibilities…

It’s easy to get distracted by a pretty vibe but if it’s not designed to stimulate the bits of you, or your partner, that you would like to thrill, then it may not be the right toy for you. Just like the other kind of DIY 😉 finding the tool for the job is a good starting point.

The good news is that many vibrating toys can be pressed into action to stimulate lots of erogenous zones and are pretty versatile. Others, though, are ergonomically designed for a specific kind of stimulation and it’s these toys you need to look to, if you are looking for that kind of pleasure.

I’m looking for external/ clitoral pleasure – Which vibrator should I choose?

Clitoral vibrators are specially shaped to pleasure externally
Clitoral vibrators are specially shaped to pleasure externally

Did you know that for solo sessions (aka masturbation) most women (around 80%) play with their vibe on the outside only,  using it externally to pleasure their clitoris and vulva?

This is because most women need ( and enjoy!) clitoral stimulation to orgasm and clitoral O’s are the most common type of female orgasm.

If you’ve never had an orgasm or find them a bit hit-or-miss, we recommend the first type vibrator you choose should be for exploring clitoral pleasure.

We’ve selected our range of clitoral vibrators because they’re brilliantly shaped  or particularly fab at delivering external clitoral stimulation.

But the good news is that whatever their size or shape, ALL vibrators, can be used to pleasure your clitoris so feel free to choose ANY vibe, from any category, that catches your eye. Just because a vibrator is shaped for penetration, it doesn’t mean you have to use it that way…

Any toy that vibrates, whether pebble-shaped or 6 inches long, can be held against the external clitoral and vulval areas to tease these highly responsive spots.

So, if clitoral pleasure/orgasm is your goal, you have the choice of every vibrator we carry – Lucky you!

We’ve written more about how to choose a clitoral vibrator and how to use one  and we have a whole section giving advice about the clitoris so if you’d like to read more – head over there…

Small clitoral vibrators, the kind that are designed to lay-on the clitoral/vulval area, have the added advantage of being a good toy for introducing a vibrating toy to sex play with your partner, as they are not intimidating and, because they are not shaped for penetration, there can be no hurt feelings or bruised egos..

 

 

I’d like a vibrator for internal or G-Spot pleasure…

A toy with a curved and/or bulbous head can find the G Spot more easily
A vibrator with a curved and/or bulbous head can find the G Spot more easily than a straight one…

If you’re looking to buy a vibrator for vaginal stimulation, including G-Spot play, choosing the right shape and size IS important.

Width is the vital statistic to get right as a toy that is too wide can feel more uncomfortable that pleasurable.

Length is less important as you can always control how deep inside it goes.

The best way to determine what’s a comfortable width for you is to experiment with fingers first; either your own or your lover’s. Don’t go in cold, though, as arousal is absolutely key to penetrative and G-Spot pleasure As you get really turned-on, blood-flow rushes to the area, your vagina balloons and your G-Spot swells, making everything more responsive to pleasure.

For most women this means at least 20 minutes of non-penetrative pleasure;  kissing, licking and teasing touches of nipples, lips ( upper and lower!) and clitoris; stroking thighs, squeezing buttocks tickling toes – whatever combination works for you and for however long you want it ( 20 minutes is only an average – many women will want, need and desire much longer…)

(BTW whilst ‘foreplay’ is the given term for the above, it isn’t one we like to use because it suggests that everything has to lead-up to, and end in intercourse, which isn’t the case and often doesn’t do women any orgasmic favours)

So, once you are well and truly turned-on ( and only if / when your body is crying out for something inside) delve into your vagina with fingers; Is one finger enough? Two? Three? More…?

Some women enjoy the feeling of ‘stretching’,  whilst for others it can be a sudden halt to arousal and feel too overwhelming to be enjoyable, so the important thing to remember is that there are NO rules or expectations, only what feels good for you.

After your session measure around the finger(s) that proved satisfying, form it into a circle and then measure across – this will give you the diameter of a comfortable toy for you. We measure the width of all our toys in diameter (as this is the easiest to imagine) and always at their widest point.

One of the most common questions we’re asked in-store is will a G-Spot vibrator find my G-Spot? Sorry, but the answer to that is there are, and can never be, any guarantees. How a woman responds to any kind of pleasure is unique to her. We’re not robots with guaranteed pleasure buttons and that’s something to be celebrated!

Look at smooth, classic vibrators, as well as specially curved G Spot vibes, as both ranges have been chosen for being the best at delivering internal/G-Spot pleasure, and remember that you don’t have to use them internally – they are simply shaped that way to give you the option…

I’d like a vibrator to pleasure both inside AND out – Which is the best choice for that?

A Rabbit Style vibrator features a shaft for penetration and an external arm to stimulate the clitoris
A Rabbit Style vibrator features a shaft for penetration and an external arm to stimulate the clitoris

For clitoral and internal stimulation at the same time, your best vibrator-choice is definitely a rabbit-style vibrator.

Featuring a shaft for internal pleasure and a vibrating clitoral stimulator, rabbit vibrators offer amazing dual stimulation, inside and out.

It’s the world’s most famous vibrator because it offers simultaneous pleasure that can lead to a ‘blended orgasm’. This kind of orgasm, exactly as the name suggests, is a heady mix of climatic pleasure that appears to come from both inside and out; a blend of clitoral and g-spot orgasms all at the same time!

 

Rabbit vibrators have given more women more pleasure and more orgasms than any other style of vibrator and we have a wealth of rabbit vibrator advice, from how to choose a rabbit vibrator and how to use your rabbit, right through to sex tips and tricks to get the most out of your rabbit, so head over here for more info…

One of the more surprising things we’ve learnt from chatting to women at our store is how many of tell us ‘it’s ALL about the bunnies ears!’ – it seems a LOT of women don’t always ( or ever) use the shaft portion of their rabbit vibes. A dual-stimulation vibe may seem to be the ‘bells and whistles’ of the vibrator-world, but actually lots of women enjoy purely clitoral stimulation from theirs.

So, when choosing a vibrator for masturbation, these are your 3 main choices; A toy for external/clitoral pleasure; One for internal/G-spot stimulation; One that does both!

Choosing an anal vibrator is a different story, as safety is very important…

Any sex toy for anal pleasure whether it vibrates or not, must be shaped in such a way that it cannot slip inside and get lost. It’s always best to buy a dedicated anal vibrator or prostate massageras they have been specially designed as sex toys for safe anal play, and, whilst many can be sterilized, we recommend it’s best for hygiene reasons, to keep any/all anal toys dedicated solely to backdoor play.

 

 

I can’t orgasm during intercouse with my partner – is there a vibrator for that?  

An intercourse vibrator is designed to be worn by the woman, and enjoyed by both partners...

You’re not alone! In fact the vast majority of women ( around 70% of us) find it difficult or impossible to orgasm through penetration alone, needing added clitoral stimulation during intercourse to climax.

So, for adding a buzz during sex with your partner, take a look at vibrators for intercourse and cock rings that vibrate – both are specially designed to be worn by one partner during penetrative sex with their partner.

A vibrating cock-ring is worn by the man ( you don’t say!) at the base of his penis, with the bullet positioned so that it stimulates your clitoris during sex.

Intercourse vibrators, such as the world-famous, million-selling We-Vibe, are specially shaped for the women to wear; with the larger pad externally stimulating her clitoris, with the smaller pad nestling against her G-Spot, whilst still leaving room for her partner to slip inside, where they too will feel the vibrating stimulation.

Vibrating cock-rings are a cheaper option to add thrills, whilst intercourse vibes are quite an investment. We’re not all ‘one-size’, so whether they work for you can be quite a leap of faith…

Remember, too that any lay-on clitoral vibrator as well as bullet and egg vibes are discreet enough to add an extra buzz to intercouse, without getting in the way…

 

The next vibrator-choices are quite practical…

Once you’ve decided on what kind of pleasure you’d like your vibrator mostly for, the next things to consider are the practicals of your toy.  How would you like it to feel – Do you want it to feel soft and squishy or prefer something hard and sleek?

Do you think you’d enjoy an intense buzz or prefer something gentler? Is size important?

Vibrator Material:

Concerned by chemicals? Don’t worry. We won’t stock sex toys that contain phthalates ( a potentially dangerous chemical softener found in PVC/  Jelly Toys)

All our vibrators are safe, but they come in a range of materials which bring different qualities to the toy; check our guides to sex toy materials to discover the pros & cons of each.

Briefly, a hard plastic vibrator is usually more powerful (and less quiet) as vibration isn’t absorbed by the material. Nor will it absorb any lubricant or your natural juices, which makes it feel strong and sleek.

Softer vibrators made from Elastomer will feel less intense as the soft material absorbs some vibration (as well some sound and lubrication) but these kind of vibrators generally feel more user-friendly…

A silicone vibrator is probably the best you can buy. Silicone is safe, soft and transmits vibration well, whilst keeping noise transference to a minimum.

Vibrator Intensity:

Secret Vibrator £35
Secret Vibrator £35

We know this is difficult – if you don’t have any experience with vibrators, how on earth do you decide what kind of vibrator intensity you will prefer!

The best way is to think about the kind of manual stimulation you prefer; is it a soft, gentle touch or do you need firm/intense stimulation to orgasm?

Most vibrators offer various speeds (often with escalating & pulse options) but if you’ve never had an orgasm, find orgasms illusive or feel like you take “too long”,  we’d advise you choose a vibrator that is rated ‘Strong’ or ‘Wowser’, such as the Secret Vibe or Sh! Bullet.

For a super-sensitive clitoris,  look for a ‘Very Gentle’ or ‘Mild’ rating, such as the Flexi Wand vibrator.

On top speed, we assess each vibrators  and give them an intensity-rating of:

  1. Gentle
  2. Mild
  3. Strong
  4. Wowser- High Intense
  5. Wowser – Deep Throbby

Remember, a vibrator that feels too strong can always be toned-down by using it through your knickers or a piece of material, so if you have any doubts, we recommend a stronger intensity vibe over one that offers a gentle or mild vibe.

Vibrator Volume:

Everyone wants a totally silent vibe but unfortunately they don’t exist.  A vibrator has a motor & will always make some sound, however low.

You may need to forfeit power/functions for a really quiet or almost silent vibrator.

On top speed, we measure each vibrator with a sound meter and give them vibrator volume of;

  1. Extra Quiet / Almost Silent
  2. Quiet
  3. Medium
  4. Audible- But Worth It!

Size:

We measure toys ‘Actual Length‘ (full length of vibrator/sex toy – including battery case if its integral), and ‘Playable Length‘ (insertable bit).

Remember, just because a vibrator looks like it’s designed to go inside, it doesn’t mean you have to play with it like that!

If you do want a vibrator for penetration, you can always control how far to insert it, but one that’s too wide will always feel uncomfortable.

To assess the right fit, think how many fingers feel good for you.

It’s probably best to buy a vibe that’s a similar width, rather than being overwelmed by a vibrators girth and never getting it our to play.

If you are uneasy about penetration, start with a  slim vibrator and work your way up. Whilst browsing, have a ruler handy to give you an idea how long/wide a toy will be.

We list all important info such as vibrator material, dimensions, intensity, sound, as well as whether it is rechargeable or takes batteries etc on each product page.

Style:

Desire
Desire Vibrator £49

For most of us, how something looks is important. If it’s unattractive to you, a new vibrator may not be played with very often. Take a long, lusty look at each vibe and try to visualize playing it before you buy.

Each toy at Sh! is chosen because it’s good-looking, as well as practical and good quality, whatever it’s price range, but for top style, take a look at our luxury vibrators

How Your Vibe is Powered

Rechargeable or battery-powered? Each has it’s advantages.

A rechargeable vibrator is the greener alternative and means you’re not a slave to batteries  – no more raiding the TV remote-control of it’s batteries in the middle of the night!

But you do have to have access to a plug or USB port to fire up your vibe when it runs out of steam.

And you do have to forward-think/be organised. If you haven’t kept your vibe charged up, there’ll be a frustrating wait to use it…

Battery-powered vibrators, so long as you have batteries, can give you  instant gratification.

And battery-powered (so long as you have batteries!) toys can travel anywhere.

We hope this has helped whittle down which may be the best vibrator choice for you.

Remember, though, we’re here to give expert, tailored advice, whether in our London store, on the phone or by email, so do feel free to visit /contact us, if you’d like more help or some personalised recommendations – we’re really friendly, non-scary and unembarassable, we promise!
