Buying Your First Vibrator? Here’s What You Need to Know

Approximately 12% of women use sex toys at least once per week. Plenty more own sex toys for occasional use. If you’re thinking about buying your first vibrator, you’re in good company.

Buying sex toys is nothing to be ashamed of. There’s nothing shameful about wanting the best orgasm possible regardless of whether you’re playing alone or with a partner.

We’re here to talk about a few things you should consider when you buy a vibrator for the first time. Read on to learn more.

Look for Body-Safe Materials

Not all sex toys are body-safe, unfortunately. Even when it comes to vibrators, which are usually external toys, you still need to be careful. When it comes to internal toys (which some vibrators are), you need to pay even more attention.

So what’s not body-safe?

You want to avoid any toys that are made from porous materials. While they may seem fine from the outside, they can’t ever be truly cleaned. This means that they can introduce your body to harmful bacteria.

Even if it’s listed as “body-safe,” you should avoid anything made with TPR, “jelly,” and PVC (among other things). Good materials include hard plastic, silicone, and metal.

This is more often a problem with dildos than vibrators, but it’s still something you should keep in mind. Note that vibrators made from safe materials may be slightly more expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Note Vibration Settings

All types of vibrators have various levels of vibration. If you’re brand new to vibrators, you may want to choose something that has slower settings (or at least has a wide range).

Some vibrators have different vibration patterns while others just vary in speed. Fast vibrators may be too intense for people who have never used them before.

What Type of Vibrator Are You Looking For?

Vibrators come in all types. Which is right for you?

Wand vibrators tend to have thin handles and larger vibrating “heads.” These come in many sizes (more on that later) and they’re easy to hold, making them convenient for first-timers.

There are egg-shaped vibrators that fit well in the palm and they’re easy to hold during sex, but may not be as convenient for solo play.

There are vibrators that you can share with a partner as well that have both internal and external components. You could also choose a vibrating dildo, but this is really a different category of toy.

Size: Does It Matter?

So does size matter? When it comes to vibrators, yes!

If you’re using a vibrating dildo, the size you choose will obviously vary depending on what your own size preferences are. Bigger isn’t always better.

If you’re just getting a vibrator, you have more flexibility.

Some people like having large vibrating wands because they’re easier to use with a partner. It’s easy for a partner to reach around with a larger vibrator during sex.

Others prefer small palm-sized vibrators because they’re easy to use alone and they’re easy to hide from prying eyes.

It’s Time to Buy Your First Vibrator

Buying your first vibrator is exciting, but it might also seem intimidating! Keep these factors in mind when you’re searching for your toy and you won’t be disappointed. Have fun!
