Choosing Your First Vibrator

Posted by Tim Sizemore on

Where to Start

It's easy to browse sex toys online and read various reviews to get an idea of what type of toy you may like. However, because there are literally hundreds of thousands of sex toys to choose from, this also makes choosing a good sex toy much harder. From the huge array of buzzing, osculating, penetrating, tickling, massaging battery operated or rechargeable objects of pleasure, where do you start?

Seventy percent of women reach orgasm through clitoral stimulation alone, rather than sexual penetration, so for most beginners a vibrator is the best place to start, rather than a dildo. While that narrows down your choices, there are still many types of vibrators to choose from and not all of them are ideal for beginners.

Bullets & Eggs

Bullets and egg vibrators are very small and usually fairly powerful for their size. Which is why they are great first Vibrators. They are discrete and fairly affordable for first-time buyers. They come in many designs and range in speeds from single to multiple speeds and vibrating patterns. All are fairly simple to use and are perfect for a first time buyer. We recommend the Nimbus mini vibrator, but for someone willing to spend more, we highly suggest The Rabbit Ears from The Rabbit Company.

Pocket Rockets

Pocket Rockets are the best selling small clitoral vibrators on the market. They look like mini pocket flashlights and are very discrete, affordable and simple to use. Basic pocket rockets are one speed only, which is usually enough power for a younger woman. We recommend multiple speed rockets because you have more variation and you won’t outgrow them. These are a bit more expensive, but worth the investment. We recommend the Pocket Rocket Plus by Doc Johnson for a great clitoral vibe.

Magic Wands

The Hitachi Magic Wand is the best selling and most powerful vibrator ever made, but it is often way too powerful for a first-time buyer. However, body massagers are much smaller and have more variations in speed. Our customer's favorite wand vibrator is the Mini Wand Massager. This vibe is great for the beginner and expert vibe enthusiast as it is multi-speed, but also very discrete and quiet.

A Few More Tips

  • Be prepared to shop around. While buying online is discrete and we offer free shipping, we recommend coming in to the boutique where our knowledgeable staff can answer your questions and steer you in the right direction.
  • No need to feel uncomfortable shopping at our boutique, our staff of women treats the toys as mere electronics and you are a valued customer.
  • Test the strength of a vibrator on the tip of your nose. Your nose has a similar sensitivity as your clitoris, so if it tickles, that tells you it will work for your clitoris as well.
  • Make sure the sales person puts in batteries and tests it for you before you take it home when you purchase in store.
  • Stay away from jelly and rubber and choose plastic, silicone, glass, stone and elastomer.
  • Many vibrators are not waterproof. Keep that in mind when you purchase, if you intend to use it in the bath or shower. There is a difference between splash-proof, waterproof, and submersible. Don't be afraid to ask our staff for more help.
