How to guide: Buying the right Vibrator or Dildo

How do you know if you’re buying the right vibrator or dildo, especially if you’re new to the world of sex toys? Sometimes it can be overwhelming and intimidating to say the least… size, shape, color, vibrating or not…choices, choices, choices…

Well, we’ll simplify it for you… basically it centers around what turns you on and what doesn’t, it’s that simple!

Although buying sex toys online is far more discreet and a whole lot less embarrassing, it’s a good idea for first time buyers to venture into an adult shop and take a look around. Yes…we know, adult shops are generally disgusting/dirty/creepy places with shelves filled with porn video’s and pictures of things you wish you’d never been exposed to… however, nowadays (lucky for us) there are some really upmarket stores that cater specifically for woman. We’d suggest first searching the available stores in your area online, and then making your decision from there.

Look for something that turns you on

When you look at what is available… it’s always good to think of a color that may turn you on. If it’s bright screaming pink, buy a bright screaming pink vibrator, if it’s a man’s penis, buy a dildo!

Size is also very important…for starters, begin small and slowly work your way up if you’re wanting something that’s a bit more “well-hung”! Vibrators also come in a variety of shapes… some are designed for exterior use, others for internal use with G-spot or A-Spot locators, and then there are those that have an internal and external mechanism… yes… there are lots of varieties.

Start with something simple… you have a life-time to explore the many wondrous sex toys out there! We would suggest going for a clitoral vibrator at first. The clitoris is essentially a bundle of 8000 nerve fibers which makes it the most sensitive spot on our body.

Battery operated or electrical socket?

Lastly, if you choose a sex toy that vibrates, they will either require batteries, or to be charged via an electrical socket, or remain connected via an electrical socket.

There are upsides and downsides to each variety. We suggest asking the shop assistant at the adult store if they can turn it on for you before you purchase it. In general, electrical socket vibrators seem to be a lot louder than battery operated ones, but on the flip side, battery operated vibrators chew through batteries and the batteries can quit on you at any point… so that choice is going to have to be yours!

If you’d like to buy something online, here’s our suggestions…

Lastly, please also read our How To Guide’s: Using A Clitoral & Vaginal Vibrator & How To Guide’s: Using a Dildo as they can be really useful… and most sex toys don’t come with an instruction book!

We hope you have fun shopping, and that we’ve made buying the right vibrator or dildo a little easier for you!
