Vibe Virgin to Master Masturbator

Choosing Your First Vibrator

So, you’ve decided to buy your first vibrator… Bravo, it’s a decision I applaud, being somewhat partial to sex toys and all their trappings. But…oh. You’ve hit a stumbling block. There’s just so much to choose from. As it’s your first vibrator, you want to pick the right one but don’t really know what that arm is for, or if you really need the shaft to do that when you press the middle button.

Well, your confusion is about to come to an end, because I’m here to break it down for you, to help you figure out which of the most popular styles of vibrator will be best able to fulfil all your masturbatory needs.

Push the Button

Fact of the day: many vulva owners need clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm. For some a featherlight touch from a familiar finger might be enough to send them tumbling into seventh heaven, but others might find themselves needing the aggression of a thunder storm to all but drag them to the finish line.

Bullet vibrators truly are the best friend of the sensitive clitoris. The most inexpensive of them are super basic, AAA battery powered, and start from as little as $10. A myriad of colours and funky designs await you in the clit-ammo aisle, so you’re bound to find one that calls to you. They’re often made from ABS plastic or silicone, both of which are body safe, so no worries there. The vibrations are often mild to middle range, surface level and great for clits that have no problem coming. Bear in mind, though, that you get what you pay for. These bullets aren’t built to last.

If you want something with longevity, a little trip up the price scale to the $100 mark will offer you some real wonders, like my favourite, the We-Vibe Tango. Rechargeable and waterproof, this bullet is gentle on the lowest setting, but once it hits full power? The rumbly vibes will penetrate deep into the vulva, not just giving those hard to please clits intense pleasure but also stimulating the part of the clitoris that lies hidden beneath the labia.

TIP

Bullets are a perfect choice for a first vibrator. But if you find you’ve picked one that’s too strong for your clitoris, try using it over your panties. That’ll spread the vibes over a wider area and can help prevent the numbing caused by overstimulation.

Insert Here!

Those who live for penetration are catered for not only by dildos, but also insertable vibrators. There are so many shapes and sizes out there, from the classic torpedo shape, which will usually be a larger version of the basic bullet, to those with curved shafts and bulbous heads that are made to delight the g-spot.

Classic vibrators usually have similar vibrations to the basic bullet, but on a slightly more powerful scale due to a battery upgrade to AA. You still get the mild, shallow buzz, but in a longer toy. If you want something slim, straight, and smooth to the touch and don’t need very intense internal stimulation, the classic could be the perfect first vibrator you.

If you need your internal stimulation to be all about the g-spot, you’re in for a treat. Vibrators like the Lelo GiGi 2boast flattened heads at the end of curved shafts. They swoop around your pubic bone, the flattened head naturally settling in the general g-spot area. Once it’s in there, it’s up to you to root out your hotspot.

The beauty of any of these types of vibrator is that you don’t have to use them internally. If you can’t decide whether you want your clit tickled or your depths plundered, an insertable vibrator works just as well on the clitoris. Use your chosen vibe inside of you and out, and see where that takes you.

TIP

Some folks don’t like toys that are shaped for g-spotting because they find insertion and removal uncomfortable when their chosen piece passes the pubic bone. Pushing down against the vaginal opening and perineum, and following the curve of the toy in an upward rocking motion as you insert it helps it hook around the pubic bone without bashing or scraping.

Best of Both!

Okay, so switching between internal and external stimulation doesn’t sound like your thing. Most of the time, it isn’t mine either. Now is the time to consider something different for your first vibrator – the multitasker that is the rabbit!

Rabbits come in all shapes and sizes, and they’ve moved on from the days of Carrie Bradshaw and her jelly monstrosity. Today, we have rabbits that are completely encased in silicone. Some are battery powered, some rechargeable, and many of them are waterproof.

Rabbit-style vibes can be found for as little as $25, but kill the engines! If you come across a cheap bunny, there are a few things to think about. Firstly, check to see what it’s made of. If you see the words jelly, TPE, TPR, rubber or latex, steer clear. Those materials, while prolific in the sex toy market, are not suitable for putting inside your body. Silicone is what you want. Rabbits made from silicone are more expensive than the old death-jellies, but you – and your intimate health – are worth it.

TIP

When shopping for a rabbit, consider what you want before starting, because many of them have fancy features so you can pick the perfect one for you. Like your g-spot stroked? Look for a rabbit with a rotating shaft like the Lelo Ina Wave. Prefer having the opening to your vagina massaged? Bunnies with rotating beads will do the job. Do you like a lot of internal movement but find that your hands falter before you’re suitably satisfied? Thrusting rabbits will be your friend!

Back of the Front!

I’ve talked a lot of talk about the vulva, but not everyone has one of those. But something we all have, is a butt. One thing to note about any toy you want to use for anal penetration is that it must have a flared base of some kind to make it anal safe. Bullet vibes and classic vibes are a definite no, as are g-spotting vibes that don’t have handles wider than their shafts. Rabbit vibes, however, are very butt friendly, and of course there’s a world of vibrating toys made especially for anal play. I’ll tell you all about those another day.
