Q&A: Help! What’s a Good First Vibrator?

Hello!

I wondered if I could ask for some advice –

I would like to buy a vibrator but I have no idea which one to buy.


I have never used one on myself (only a partner on me during sex)
Is there a particular one that’s good to start with? I also am not sure
if there are ones that also penetrate?
I appreciate your advice!

Thanks!

L.

Hi L,

This is a very common question, sometimes when you start looking at toys it’s a little hard to know where to start. We do have a ‘My first’ section on our website and a beginners sex advice section – both are good resources if you’re stuck for ideas.

How to Pick a First Vibrator

In the end though, it all comes down to what you enjoy! Take some time to think about what kind of stimulation you enjoy, something intense or something more delicate? Direct or indirect?

It’s also important to think about safety, cheap toys might seem attractive but you should always go for high quality, body safe, non-porous toys. You’re always safe with us, otherwise look out for silicone and ABS plastic, which make for nice, safe, vibes.

It’s a good start that you know you’re interested in something that incorporates penetration.

Our recommendations for a beginner’s vibrator

Lots of vibrators incorporate penetration,
for example this Sh! Waterproof Rabbit has bunny ears that stimulate the sides of the clitoris, which many women prefer to dead on stimulation, and a roatating shaft for penetration, it’s only about 4.5 inches penetrable length and fairly slim.
We’d advise not going to all out on your first toy because you don’t
necessarily know what you want yet. The Desire is one of our best sellers and can be used for clitoral or g-spot stimulation, it has a range of settings if you’re not sure what you’ll like.  It is a good all rounder but it is a little more expensive than some other options. There’s also toys like the Mini Pink Vibe or this G-Spot Dual Vibrator, so it stimulates your g spot and clitoris at the same time, it’s pretty small and discreet and could make a nice beginner toy.

Always remember to use lube and keep your toys safe and hygienic, wash after use with toy spray or hot water and soap.
