What Do I Want in My Sex Toy? Part II

So now that we covered dildos, we get to cover another toy that women (and men) use: vibrators. What's an appropriate toy to get? Like dildos, vibrators come in a variety of colors, sizes, materials, and textures. They also come with vibrations; some toys have a plethora of vibrations that range from extremely weak to incredibly strong; others are either really weak or really strong. Some are ass friendly and some are not. So what kind of toy is made for you?

~Vibrator Overview~

As with any sex toy, you are going to want to buy one made of good quality; there are many, many pure silicone options to choose from, but there are also a few ceramic and glass options, though they are more limited. Pure metal options are rare (at least, that's what I have found personally). All these toys come in a variety of styles and colors, so the sky is the limit. Lower grade materials (read here) tend to have a much shorter life span and are generally not healthy for the body; it's also a terrible idea to share them if that's what you're into.

Vibrators are made of seriously every size you could possibly imagine; some are thin as a pencil and some are as thick as a body builder's arm. Length is pretty versatile as well. If you've been playing with toys for a while, you probably know what you're comfortable with. If you want to try something new, or if you are new to toys in general, there are a few types of toys to consider. For example, vibrators are not JUST vibrators, but they're divided into separate categories. There are g spotters, which are specifically designed to hit a woman's g spot (or if it has a flared base, then it can hit a man's p spot as well); clit vibes which are designed to stimulate the clitoris but can also be used to tease the nipples or a man's testicles and penis- these are not made for insertion; there are rabbit vibrators, which are meant for both clitoral and vaginal stimulation but can be used for anal insertion as well.

I'll be going into more detail about the specific types of vibes that I just discussed, but to remember about all these products: if you are new to sex toys, you are going to want a smaller toy with a variety of power options so you can find out how much power is suitable for you. If you are not satisfied with a smaller toy, remember, you can always move up. Some people may think they can handle an eight inch silicone vibrator as their first toy, but it may end up being painful and incredibly uncomfortable if you haven't prepared yourself for it. A good size to start off with is about 5-6 inches (12.7 cm to 15.24 cm) in length and a one inch (2.54 cm) diameter. Consider buying a toy light in mass; a toy that is one pound (453 g) is going to be too big for your first; your arm will tire and you won't be able to get yourself off.

Also consider a smooth texture; combine a busy texture with vibrations may be a bit much, or painful, for a beginner. Some toys have a drag, so consider investing in a water based lube if you don't like that.

Some great toys to consider are the Fun Factory Bimini Ocean, which is a rabbit vibe; the SinFive Nagi, which is a great traditional vibe; and the Mimi by Je Joue, which is very user friendly clit vibe. All of these toys are body safe, great for sharing,  have a range of power options and though very beginner friendly, are also great for advanced users looking to try something new. All these are available at the shop I trust. If you buy them, make sure to use my affiliate code for 25% off your order.

I hope you enjoyed this thoroughly!
Have a wonderful week!
