Synopsis:
  • In this article we discuss the different vibrators and how to find the one that is right for you.  Each vibrator is going to be different than another vibrator, and with tens of thousands out there to choose from, it can be difficult to begin to narrow down your choices.

  • Vibrators, which are loosely defined as an adult toy that vibrates for the sake of pleasure, come in many shapes, sizes, forms, materials, and strengths. Each vibrator is going to be different than another vibrator, and with tens of thousands out there to choose from, it can be difficult to begin to narrow down your choices. There are vibrators that offer dual-stimulation, vibrators designed to be used hands-free, vibrators that have different forms of vibrating like thumpy or buzzy, vibrators that plug into an outlet, vibrators that use watch batteries, and so, so, many more options!

 

  • Choosing your perfect vibrator doesn’t have to be difficult though. Keep in mind that you may have to try a couple different vibrators until you find the perfect one, but the journey is half of the fun, right? Try some of these steps to narrow down your available vibrator choices to find the perfect one for you.

 

  • Step 1: Would type of stimulation would you like? Do you just want singular stimulation at a time or would you prefer dual or triple stimulation? There are many single-shaft vibrators out there, but some vibrators (typically known as rabbit vibrators) come with a little bullet towards the base of the shaft that rests against the clitoris while the rest is inserted for dual stimulation. Furthermore, some vibrators are just shaped to be both insertable and pleasurable on the clitoris at the same time. If you want even more stimulation, some rabbit vibrators also, in addition to the shaft and clitoris part, will include an extra shaft to be inserted anally at the same time for triple stimulation!

 

  • Step 2: Would you like to insert your toy? If inserting your toy sounds like something you want to do and you’ll have a basic vibrator, you may want to look towards a vibrator that includes a softer material. Silicone, TPR, and similar materials tend to be softer and plushier which usually is more comfortable for insertion. Some women find that rigid materials like plastic can be uncomfortable for use when inserted.

 

  • Step 3: Would you like it to be realistic? Toys have many different designs and many different colors. You can find vibrant pink, blue, yellow, and green vibrators, and you can find realistically-colored skin vibrators as well. The vibrator may be shaped like a dolphin or a ghost, and it also can be realistically shaped like a penis. Depending on your preference, this may narrow down your search pool for vibrators that you’ll find physically appealing.

 

  • Step 4: What material works best for you? Different materials will feel differently and will transmit vibrations differently. Materials like silicone feel more pleasurable on the skin, but they can deafen vibration strength a bit. Materials like plastic are very smooth and transfers vibrations well, but it can be uncomfortable for some people to insert. It depends on your preference towards the material, so keep in mind if you want something rigid or something with a bit of plushiness to it. Some materials can also be safer for your body than other materials, so that’s something to keep in mind as well.

 

  • Step 5: What power source would you like? There is a huge variety in what type of power a vibrator will use. Some use multiple watch batteries, some will use AAA batteries, some use N batteries, some use AA batteries, and some will use C batteries. Along with that, some plug straight into an electricity outlet, and others actually are rechargeable much like a cell phone is. If you don’t want to be tethered to a wall, the electrical outlet vibrators may not work for you, and if you aren’t comfortable charging your sex toy, a rechargeable toy may not work. If you want to reduce how many batteries you buy, though, rechargeable toys may be perfect for you.

 

  • Step 6: How much noise can you make? Some sex toys are louder than others. As a general rule of thumb, the larger the sex toy, the more noise it tends to make. Electricity-outlet powered vibrators tend to be the very loudest while bullets or finger vibrators tend to be some of the quietest. If noise is a concern for you, read reviews over your potential sex toy and see what the reviewer says about the noise.

  • Step 7: Does your vibrator need to be waterproof? Most vibrators are now made to be waterproof. However, it’s possible that the vibrator you chose will not be waterproof. Make sure, if going in the water sounds like something you’ll want to be doing, that you choose a vibrator that is waterproof to keep the toy from getting harmed in the water.

 

  • Step 8: What special features would you like? Vibrators vary widely in the things they can do. For example, the OhMiBod series of vibrators can plug into your music device and vibrate to the beat of your music! Some other vibrators come with their own carrying and storage case to keep them out of public eye, and in others, the vibrator may be hidden inside a small, make-up looking box to keep others from seeking. Some vibrators are wirelessly controlled by a remote, and there are even vibrators that can turn your gaming remotes into vibrators as well! If you have a special feature you’d like to see, this is the time to see if your vibrator choices have it.  

 

  • Step 9: Now that you’ve narrowed down your vibrator choices, pick out the one that seems best, and go with it! Don’t forget to pick up the batteries, if you need them for it, to get your playtime started right away!
