BEGINNERS GUIDE TO: VIBRATORS

THEY'LL LEAVE YOU BUZZING

These days, purchasing your first vibrator can feel overwhelming and complicated. It is easy to browse through the different types and read various reviews to get an idea of what exact toy you may like. However, because there are literally hundreds of thousands of toys to choose from, this also makes narrowing down a good sex toy much harder. Don't worry, we're going to break it down for you!


Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend clearly never had a vibrator!

3 Stars

These versatile little gizmos are a super easy way to introduce a sex toy into the bedroom without requiring a ton of skill or know-how. A simple bullet vibrator is a great introductory toy (and often remains as a staple in the bedroom). Its small size and basic function make it simple to include in foreplay or during sex and it’s also a fantastic masturbation toy for women. Bullet vibes are held gently against the clitoris, and varying speeds and patterns of vibration are often available on most models. Just press the ‘On’ button and hold on tight!

BEGINNERS GUIDE TO THE: G-SPOT

THAT HITS THE SPOT!

Internal and G-spot vibrators are designed to be inserted into the vagina and range from about 4 inches in length to about 12 inches. The size you choose is entirely up to you, and is based solely on personal preference. If the toy has a curve at the end, it is designed to access the G-spot easier than a standard straight vibe. Either way, make sure to lubricate these toys so they glide easily. If you’re not sure which lubricant is best for you, a simple water-based formula is a good bet. Turn the toy on and insert the toy to where it is most comfortable. Play around with angles, speed and varying pressure until you find what works for you.


Want to hit both the clitoris and G-spot at the same time? Then you’re looking for a “rabbit” or dual vibrator. These toys have a shaft and a small clitoral bullet attached at the base. This design allows you to contact both the internal nerves and G-spot and the clitoris at the same time. Given the size of these toys, they are more commonly used a masturbation or foreplay tool for women as they would generally be “in the way” during sex.

BEGINNERS GUIDE TO: COCK RINGS

PUT A RING ON IT

Another option if you’re interested in something that can be used to stimulate the clitoris and g-spot simultaneously (but want to be able to use it during sex and not just for foreplay) is a vibrating cockring. Cockrings are typically made of a stretchy material and shaped like a small circular ring. They are stretched over the shaft of the penis straight down to the base where they rest against the pubic bone. A small clitoral bullet is attached on one side on the vibrating model so that when the penis enters the vagina, the bullet will press against the clitoris and provide great hands-free stimulation for both partners!

Regardless of what kind of toy you decide to try, there are Four Golden Rules to keep in mind!

3 Stars
  • First, always, always, ALWAYS, wash your toy with a good toy cleaner or non-irritating, unscented mild soap before and after every use. This hygienic practice will keep the toy clean and safe for use and also maintain it so you can love it for as long as possible
  • Second, never be afraid to lubricate a toy. We always say “wetter is better!” Any water-based formula will improve the toy’s function and prevent any chafing or pulling if things get hot and heavy!
  • Third, if the toy takes batteries, do NOT leave the batteries in the toy when it’s not in use. Not only does this drain the batteries’ power (even when the toy isn’t on), but it can also cause the toy’s motor to overheat or burn out. Leave the batteries aside when storing your toys and pop them back in when you’re ready for fun.
  • Last, always store your toys separately (meaning don’t let them touch). Many toy materials include silicone in them, and given its inert nature, silicone bonds to itself. This means if you store two silicone-containing toys on top of each other for a length of time, they will effectively ‘melt.’ Put each toy into a lint-free pouch to prevent any issues, and also to help keep them clean in storage.
