SEX ADVICE:

How to Choose the Right Vibrator

Where to begin?! It's like a needle in a haystack. But here's a check list and some suggestions that might help narrow down the search for a good fit. And it’s no secret, a lot of guys buy vibrators for women. Keep in mind, everyone is different, and these are just suggestions. Bottom line…if it vibrates, donuts to dollars, it will be fine. Best not to overthink it. Hope this helps.  

 1) Function. Start by asking yourself how you plan to use the toy: overall vulva, clitoris, G-spot, anally or more?

    •  Clitoral Vibrators - Most women need clitoral stimulation to have an orgasm. To this end, clitoral stimulators and clit vibrating sex toys were specifically designed to target this super sensitive zone.  Relatively new to the clitoral world, are non-pressure clitoral vibrators..  The  most popular being the Womanizer and Satisfyer.  We use the term "vibrator" loosely, because these don't really vibrate but instead create a gentle suction that produces orgasm quickly without any over stimulation... or as we say.. clit fatigue.  Also popular is the Fun Factory Laya II which is a lay-on vibrator.  It is contoured to the female body and just be laid onto the sweet zone.  Click here to view all our clitoral vibrators. Below are some of our favorites.

  • G-Spot Vibrators – G Spot vibrators come semi-realistic or smooth, with that particular bend in the shaft that connects with your magic spot. If you feel you've never found your G spot, then buying a G spot vibrator is the answer for you.  Once you've hit the spot, there is no going back. And if you still can't find it? Read our article "Finding the G-Spot".

  •  Rabbit Vibrators - Originally designed by a woman, Jack Rabbit vibrators are used for simultaneous vaginal and clitoral stimulation. The shaft's outer layer is typically constructed from a soft jelly or silicone material creating a bunny rabbit vibrator that massages both the clitoral and vaginal regions. Dual penetrating rabbit vibrators have an extra thin probe for a triple treat. For an added thrill, try a thrusting vibrator.  In addition to vibrating and rotating, thrusting rabbit vibrators go up and down, in and out.

  •  Anal Vibrators - For a little buzz in the tush, try an anal vibrator during alone time or with a partner. The feeling of fullness, together with a touch of inner vibration creates an unusual, exciting sensation. Though not categorized as anal vibrators, ultra thin vibrators work just as well.

  2) Use. Are you planning to enjoy it on our own or with someone very special? Sex toys for couples are worth checking out.  Remember, sharing is caring.  

  • Remote Controlled -  If the object of your affections is a world away or maybe just in the next room, try a remote controlled vibrator. These distance-loving sex toys, have become very hi-tech with remotes, phone apps and motion sensors.  They can be controlled by your phone, a hand-held device, a ring on your finger and even a wristband that looks like a FitBit, case in point: The Lock-n-Play. Always a favorite…remote controlled panties, especially the OhMibod BlueMotion.  Your lover is now only phone app way.

  • Erection Rings – Want to keep things closer to home? Try a vibrating erection ring.  These stretching rings provide stimulation to both partners at the same time while helping him to keep a longer, stronger erection. If you can't be with your guy, but you really want to knock off his pants, try a remote controlled c-ring.  Out of sight, does not mean out of mind.

  3) Portability. Do you want a toy that slips discreetly into your purse or backpack, or a plug-in model that mostly stays home? Traditional vibrators, like the Magic Wand, plug directly into AC.  On the plus side, you never have too scramble for batteries or wait for a recharge, and the power is always reliable.   On the down side, you are attached to a cord. Back to the plus side, many Magic Wand-type masagers are now rechargeable, but they are not small enough for toting around.  Lots of the newer, smaller vibrators are USB rechargeable with abstract and non-phallic designs...you can charge them on your computer while you work and your co-workers wouldn't have a clue.  If if they did... so what?  You're a modern woman.

  • Small & Discreet for TravelThese discreet vibrators tend to be small. Fear not, these small and discreet vibrators are capable of being just as intense as their larger counter parts. Carry a discreet vibrator in your purse or luggage without worrying about a TSA agent confiscating your hidden sex toy.

  • Electric & Recharging - Biggest advantage of electric and recharging -- no running around looking for batteries. But you do have to recharge or stay plugged into the AC.  Also, many newer vibrators can be charged via USB. In the long run, electric and recharging vibrators do have a longer life and are environment-friendly. And they are more powerful than battery-operated ones. 

   4) Design. Do you like the look and feel of a real penis but don't have access to one? Luckily some options don't require an actual Y chromosome. What do you call the useless skin around a penis? A man. To the guy reading this, we apologize. It was too good of an opportunity to pass up that joke. Back to design...the flip side of realistic vibrators would be ultra discreet ones Those disguised vibes can fall out of your purse, or be displayed on your bedroom shelf, and no one would guess what it was. 

  • Realistic Vibrators(vibrating dildos) have a "fleshy" feeling and are shaped like a penis.  Some have balls. Some don't. Some look exactly like a penis and some lean towards semi-realistic and  non phallic. Regardless of the appearance, they can provide a fuller feeling.  As mentioned above, thrusting vibrators come pretty close to creating the feeling of intercourse.

  • Discreet Vibrators - These “incognito” vibes look like anything but a vibrator. Fear not, these small and discreet vibrators are capable of providing orgasms while keeping a secret. A lipstick vibrator is a must-have for women on the go.  You gotta keep those other "lips" happy too.

 5) Price. Sometimes, it just comes down to what you can afford. Typically, the more expensive vibrators are rechargeable and can last a for years.  The "budget friendly" ones are usually battery operated, and while they won't last a lifetime, with proper care they can have longevity and are worth considering.

  • Budget Friendly but Quality - Aware of budget limitation, some high end manufacturers have come up with affordable versions of their more expensive products.  JimmyJane, Jopen and Fun Factory have been very responsive to consumers' needs.  These are some of our favorites:

  •  Luxury Vibrators - Like jewelry, women love luxury sex toys. And so do men! Luxury erotic toys personify style, sensuality and craftsmanship. The designs are cutting-edge and the technology is state-of-the art. These products last for years and are worth the investment. If you are presenting one of these gems as a gift, you cannot go wrong. If it is for you... you deserve the best.
