How To Choose Your First Vibrator

So you’ve finally decided to buy your first vibrator! It’s a good step, but at the same time, it can be a bit overwhelming, confusing, and also scary. Put those worries to rest and start looking forward to the exhilarating journey you’re about to embark on.

Here’s how you can go about choosing a vibrator that is right for you.

1. Let go of the stereotypes

Many people assume that vibrators are those large, phallic, uncomfortable-looking, penis-replacement objects. Some of them might fit this category, but most vibrators are far removed from this approach.

There are several types of vibrators. Most of them have nothing to do with a penis. The goal of a vibrator is to stimulate you and to bring pleasure (and orgasms) to you. It is well-known that most women need clitoral stimulation to orgasm. Many vibrators deliver exactly that.

Don’t imagine vibrators (necessarily) as objects you need to push into your vagina. Many of them are intended solely for external use (on the clitoris). And they are divine.

2. Power, speed, and patterns

Most vibrators offer a range of options in the categories of power, speed, and patterns. For your starting vibrator, choose something that has a decent range of these options.

The vibrations speed and intensity get things rolling on the immediate effect of the vibrator. Patterns are pretty self-explanatory – vibrators often have pre-programmed variations included with their setup. These are designed in a way the manufacturer believes pleasurable. But each body is different and has its own preference. So, feel free to play around to find something you like.

A similar logic applies to power. You don’t just want a “powerful vibrator”. You want one where the power translates into deep, rumbly vibrations. Those are the ones that bring the most pleasure and open the gates of orgasmic heaven. Do read more about choosing a powerful vibrator so you start with an informed choice.

3. You will buy lubricant

Q: Should I use a lubricant?
A: Definitely, yes.

Here’s a simple truth – lubricants make things easier, more fun, and enjoyable. It doesn’t matter if you naturally produce a ton of lubrication down there. Add more. Trust me, you’ll like it.
Only intend to use a vibrator externally for clitoral stimulation? Lube up.
Using your hands to masturbate or having conventional sex? Yes, you’ll need lubricant.
Using a vibrator for vaginal or g-spot stimulation? You know it already, lube up!
There is never enough lubricant, so don’t shy away from using it. As a beginner, you’ll find that there are tons of options available on the market. It’s always a good bet to choose a water-based lubricant.

4. Buy a vibrator that’s hard

When looking for a vibrator, especially an insertable one, beginners will instinctively look for a soft vibrator. Take a step back and reverse that approach. You want a vibrator made from hard materials. There are several advantages to this approach.

A hard vibrator body means that most of the vibrations generated will be transferred to you. On the other hand, vibrators with soft materials for their exterior will end up dampening the vibrations.

Besides, there is a material disadvantage to vibrator bodies being soft. A lot of times, these are made from cheap materials. And if they’re overly shiny and bendy, they may contain dangerous materials like phthalates.
You want a vibrator made from a hard, non-porous material. It’s just a more responsible choice for hygiene. That brings us to the next step.

5. You’ll have to clean the vibrator and keep it hygienic

Any vibrator you buy will need cleaning, maintenance, and general hygiene. Be sure to check the manufacturer’s recommendations on cleaning the vibrator. You should clean the vibrator before and after every use.

This is where those non-porous materials come in handy. Since such a vibrator won’t absorb any bodily fluids, there is a remarkable risk of bacteria and other undesirable organisms growing on the vibrator. A lot of vibrators in this category are made from ABS plastic and silicone. They’re both good choices.
Finally, it might be good to consider the waterproofing of the vibrator. If it’s a waterproof vibrator, you can wash it well under a tap. If not, it will need more careful planning and cleaning.

6. Buy a cheap vibrator and experiment

For most circumstances, I’ll wholeheartedly recommend a premium, expensive vibrator. But for your first vibrator, it’s okay to go cheap. Perhaps under $25 or $30. As I said earlier, there are several types of vibrators.

You aren’t just looking at clitoral vibrators and g-sport (insertable) vibrators. There are more categories and specializations for each.

Buying a cheap vibrator gives you the opportunity to experiment. Plus, you don’t have to be tied up to an expensive purchase even if you don’t like it.Also, don’t discount your common sense when buying these times. If something looks overly cheap and too good to be true, it probably is. If you find a very noticeable chemical smell on the vibrator, it’s best not to buy it. Similarly, any cracks or chips in the surface of the vibrator are a sign against using the vibrator.

7. Read reviews

If you have a vibrator in mind, search for it online and read the reviews. Customer reviews, technical reviews, professional reviews – anything you can get your hands on is good. You’ll get a good idea of the strengths (and weaknesses) of the vibrator.

There’s also a chance of scoring some brownie points and learning a few different ways of using the vibrator, depending on the reviewers’ experience.

Some of the points to look for are noise, power, battery usage, waterproofing, and material quality.
Be confident. There is a very wide range of vibrators available and you will find something that matches your interests, desires, and even kinks. All you have to do is to take the plunge.
