How to Choose the Right Vibrator

A girl’s best friend: finding the right vibrator

Just as each girl has her own fashion sense, shouldn't they have their own "vibe sense"? We all know each woman has different needs and likes different things, so here are a few tips to help you pick out which vibe will flip your switch most!

Lubricants
Electric Vibrators
Battery Powered Vibrators
Jelly Vibrators
Clitoral Vibrators
Anal Vibrators
Multi-Function Vibrators
Cleaning and Care of your new Best Friend

Before we get started, I want to talk about the importance of Lubricant. Lube is very important! You wouldn't buy a hot sports car and put bad wheels on it would you? Having a vibe and using it without lube is pretty much the same thing. It might get you there but it won't get you there in style, now what I mean? Wink*. Why only use half of the capability of the vibe? Enjoy it to the fullest! Make sure you get a good quality lube. Yes, there really is a difference. Many of the more expensive lubes are far superior to less costly formulas, just as many other products of the daily day life. Some lubricants are specifically made for certain types of play for maximum stimulation. For example, you might choose a silicone lubricant for your waterproof toys since it won't wash off easily without soap. Water based lubes are great because they clean up easily and gels (thicker lubricants) make sure the lubrication stays where you put it instead of dripping off onto the sheets. Anal lubricants typically have a desensitizing formula that helps you enjoy your anal experience more by relaxing the rectum properly. The right lube makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

Now we have gotten that out of the way, let’s get to the fun part.

  • Electric Vibrators (the kind that plug into the wall): The first thing you should now about them is they last longer (always a good thing, right? Wink*) than the battery powered ones and can pack a great punch! They are generally larger, can cover more area and are usually the most powerful vibrators available. For this reason, electric vibrator are not for the meek or for a first time user, so beginners may want to start somewhere else. While experience is necessary when it comes to having fun with one of these bad boys, it’s definitely worth it!
    There are several models of electric vibrators, ranging from wand styles to massagers and they are re-chargeable, so you can use them with or without the cord if you're not tied into a wall outlet...not that being tied in is a bad thing, *
  • Battery Powered Vibrators : These lovelies offer more freedom to get into that right position for your masturbation technique, but they do not pack quite the punch that electric vibes do. Want to now how to tell if a vibrator is more powerful than the other one? A good rule of thumb for the power of a vibe is looking at how many batteries they require. If a vibe takes only one small battery it's going to pack less punch than a vibe that takes two or three bigger batteries. Battery powered vibrators come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colors, so a little experimentation may be needed to find out what works best for you. That’s probably the best part, right? Wink*.
    Some popular models include a butterfly type, other hands free models and dildos that aim for the G-spot.
  • Jelly Vibrators : These are probably the most popular for insertion because they are soft and comfortable. That’s why they are great (and preferred) for those who climax through penetration. Just as their human counterparts, they vary in size, shape and color. So, once again experimenting will help you find out the one that is right for you (all in the name of research, of course wink*). Want to double the fun? Here is a tip for pleasure overload: use one vibrator on your clit while you use a jelly vibe for penetration. No, no need to thank me… just send me some chocolate and wine, you’re welcome.

  • Waterproof Vibrators : You are in need for some waterproof mascara and lipstick, so what makes you think you wouldn’t need waterproof vibrators? Remember you can use them in the shower, bathtub, whirlpool, or anywhere else you are feeling naughty! Just keep in mind to only use vibrators that are specifically marked "waterproof" under water. Because if you don't, you run the risk of ruining your favorite toy! They come in a lot of models; they can be ribbed dildos, teasers or massagers. When it comes to waterproof, the sky’s not the limit.
  • Clitoral Vibrators : Oh, now we have arrived to my personal favorites: the ones that are made to go directly over the clit and stimulate the entire clitoral region. I would suggest using them in conjunction with a jelly vibe to get the most out of the experience, although they work wonderfully on their own. Given that most women have very strong orgasms through clitoral stimulation and some can only climax like this, you can imagine the popularity of clitoral vibrators. Hear me out, fellow woman: If you've had trouble reaching orgasm before or think you can't at all, try one of these and see how it goes. I will be right here waiting to hear how it went…

And I should also mention there are some cock rings designed to tickle and tease the clitoris with vibrating nubs; if you have a partner, this may be of some interest, wink*.

  • Anal Vibrators : To begin with, make sure that any toy you use for anal insertion has a flared base so it doesn't slip away on you. You don't want to make an embarrassing trip to the emergency room! Always make sure to use a good lube such as those made specifically for anal use with desensitizing properties for easier insertion. They are great on their own, but if you want to begin experimenting with anal penetration, anal vibrators are a great starting point to gauge how you feel.

  • Multi-Function (often "Rabbit") Vibrators : Here is a fun anecdote: last year for Valentine's day I gave all the girls in the office a Rabbit Vibrator. Within the next week, I got rave reviews on them from our staff ranging from 19-50+ years of age. You now what they say: everybody loves the rabbit. The rabbits are my second favorite kind of vibe and believe me when I say every girl needs a rabbit in their life. “Why are they so great?” you may wonder. Well, vibrators are great for penetration and stimulating the clitoral region at the same time! See? It’s like magic! Those beads and the squirming shaft can send you over the edge within minutes…or even less.

Ok, so you are thoroughly informed about the models. But now it comes a very important part: cleaning your toys:

Before you use your toy for the first time, it's always a good idea to clean it first before using it. Keep all of your toys clean and disinfected to avoid irritation of the sensitive skin they'll be coming in contact with. Plain soap and water will clean your toys but it won't disinfect them. If you keep your toys clean they will not only last longer, it will also take away the risk of an infection. In order to do this, you can use some cleaners specifically designed for this.

A toy cleaner is great idea because they disinfect and clean at the same time, while being formulated especially for the materials sex toys are made of.  

Remember to never directly rinse off your toys or soak them in the sink if they are battery operated because it can shorten of the life of your toy. After each use, clean your items properly and thoroughly. This is especially important if you have vaginitis or any other medical problems because you can re-infect yourself by using your item again without cleaning it. Before use, always check the manufacturer's information included with your item. They will often have information on not only how to clean your item but how to make it last longer.

If you are having multiple sexual partners, a great idea is to use a condom over your item. This will keep you and your toys safe from unwanted STD's or germs. Always store your toys in a cool and dry location. Direct sunlight, excessive moisture and high temperatures can dramatically decrease the lifespan of sex toys. It's always a good idea to take the batteries out of your toys when you are not using them, to keep them from accidentally being turned on or just to keep the batteries from expiring prematurely or leaking. We all know sex toys aren't much fun if they don't work right, so if you put the extra effort into taking care of yours, you will have many, many years of orgasms in your future, wink*.

So now, are you ready to shop for *your* vibrator? C'mon, I'll show you around!
