If you’ve been thinking about trying different vibrators, you’ve come to the right place! Everyone is totally different, as you may have discovered, what floats one person’s boat, might be the next person’s idea of a complete turn off. It’s always important to do your research before you invest in something as personal as a vibrator. To help you decide, we’ve put together a list of the 3 fundamentals to consider whilst getting experimental.
Size and Style
There is no one size fits all when it comes to vibrators. There’s only one way to find out what works for you and that’s to experiment with trying different vibrators. There is a lot of choice, from penetrative to external vibrators, to simultaneous stimulation and there are also many different shapes and sizes. When it comes to size, our advice would be to make your decision based on the purpose you want it to service.
Smaller handheld vibrators are fantastic for clitoral stimulation and the massage bar shapes work a treat. FYI, not all vibrators have to be phallic! Although, insertable vibrators are generally phallic in shape and often slightly curved for ease of access.
Rabbit vibrators are insertable and have a clitoris stimulator that branches off, to stimulate both areas at once. Keep in mind that a rabbit-style vibrator might be overwhelming for vibe newbies. It can be a lot to focus on at once while you’re learning. You could always try getting an insertable vibrator and a clitoral one, this way, you can switch between the two to have a comparable experience and decide what you like!
Sensations and Speed
Many vibrators have a variety of settings, but you can buy ones for specific sensations. A lot of people prefer a deeper kind of vibration, almost like more of a rumble, for those intense orgasms. Because the vibrations are lower in pitch, they actually resonate deeper within the body, which helps to stimulate the vagina, hitting plenty of nerve endings and sensitive tissues. For those who like a lighter, ‘buzzier’ sensation, devices that provide a faster, high-pitched hum (similar to an electric toothbrush) are what you’re after. Often clitoral vibrators focus on this sensation. You can always adjust the speed settings to experiment with edging when trying different vibrators; it’s a great way to achieve that prolonged, mind-blowing orgasm.
There are so many materials out there to choose from. Good quality silicone is the most popular these days; it’s comfortably soft, yet firm enough, if you get our drift! It’s also so easy to clean. Additionally, you can also get vibrators in plastic, skin-safe rubber, latex, metal and glass! So long as your device has been approved by a regulatory body (which should be shown on the packaging), you’re good to go. It’s just down to personal preference and what you find most comfortable.
If you’re looking for even more comfort, we would suggest lots of lube when trying different vibrators. Whether you’re new to sex toys or not, using lube can enhance any sexual experience with that slip and slide sensation leading to smooth stimulation and powerful orgasms. There are hundreds to choose from – water based, flavoured, heated to name a few. Not only do lubes offer extra lubrication, but they also allow for different sensations and can really intensify your play.
