How to Choose a Vibrator

Choosing the right vibrator will always be primarily about personal preferences. But there are some questions you can ask yourself before you choose a vibrator that will help reduce the risk of choosing one that you’ll use once and then toss away in your sock drawer.

Questions to ask when you choose a vibrator:

  1. How do you want to use your vibrator – external clitoral stimulation, penetration, or both?
  2. What should your vibrator be made out of, and what safety concerns are there about materials?
  3. How strong a vibrator should you buy – mild to super strong, single speed or variable?
  4. How much do you want to spend on a vibrator – $5 or $500? (The selection is out there for every budget.)
  5. What do you want your vibrator to look like?

Tips to Choose a Vibrator

While the majority of vibrators are phallic shaped, most people use vibrators for external stimulation. If you’re looking for a vibrator for external stimulation only, you should consider buying a hard plastic vibrator because they tend to be stronger than soft rubber vibrators, are easier to clean and don’t bend when you press them against your body, allowing you to better adjust the pressure of the vibrator

External hard plastic vibrators can be small bullet- or egg-style vibrators, or longer wand-style vibrators. They may be battery powered vibrators or plug-in vibrators.

While most people use vibrators for external stimulation, others love the feeling of a vibrator for penetration. More people choose soft rubber vibrators for penetration, as they find hard plastic vibrators too jarring.  More and more vibrators for penetration are designed for g-spot stimulation.

These vibrators will have a curve near the tip, which makes it easier to stimulate the G-spot as soft rubber toys can bend when inserted into the vagina. G-spot vibrators can also be used to stimulate the prostate in men, provided they are safe for anal use.

Soft rubber vibrators – which most people choose for penetration – can be made of a variety of materials such as silicone, jelly rubber, cyberskin, vinyl, and all manners of silicone/jelly mixes. One of the benefits of any soft rubber vibrator is that it will be quieter than hard plastic, and if you drop it, it’s less likely to crack.

Hard plastic vibrators are ideal for external stimulation, and as long as they are seamless and have no rough edges or corners, they can also be used for penetration.

If this is your first vibrator, and you’re looking for something to use externally for clitoral stimulation, hard plastic might be the way to go. Metal vibrators, while highly prized, do tend to be more expensive and may not be a great idea for first timers.

Vibrators come in a wide range of strengths, from mild to supersonic. If you are buying your first vibrator, what is most important is to get a vibrator that has variable speeds.

In almost all cases electric vibrators – whether they plug in or are rechargeable – are more powerful than battery vibrators. The best vibrator will be one that goes as low as you need it to for starters, but is stronger than you’re comfortable with as well.

A final, but not unimportant consideration is what you want your vibrator to look like. Vibrators come in every look imaginable, so even if you’d like something that is phallic-shaped, but not the realistic veins, you’ll find something.

If you’re going to use the vibrator with a partner you might want to consider what they’ll be most comfortable with, and most excited by. Some people are intimidated by toys that look like recognizable body parts, whereas others are turned on by them.
