Buying Your First Vibrator: A Beginner's Guide

Syndicated

I bought my first vibrator at a seedy adult store with blacked-out windows and flashing lights proclaiming XXX-Adults Only! The experience was rather unsettling -- between the guy at the counter reading a girly magazine, and the wall of sex toys beckoning like phallic monstrosities -- I was very overwhelmed.

I grabbed the least intimidating toy on the shelf and walked up to the counter with trepidation, hoping this would be over quickly. It was a crappy toy made of questionable materials that ended up dying after just a few weeks. So much for my first sex toy experience.

These days, purchasing your first vibrator is both easier yet also more complicated. It is easy to browse sex toys online and read various reviews to get an idea of what type of toy you may like. However, because there are literally hundreds of thousands of sex toys to choose from, this also makes choosing a good sex toy much harder. From the huge array of buzzing, osculating, penetrating, tickling, nuzzling, music driven, battery operated or rechargeable objects of pleasure, where do you start?

Vibrators versus Dildos

Seventy percent of women reach orgasm through clitoral stimulation alone, rather than sexual penetration, so for most beginners a vibrator is the best place to start, rather than a dildo. And, while that narrows down your choices, there are still many types of vibrators to choose from and not all of them are ideal for beginners.
