Can't decide? Here are our top tips for choosing a vibrator to get you started.
When choosing a vibrator it's important to understand that some are designed to be used internally (inserted vaginally) such as G-spot vibrators, while some are designed to be used externally, such as bullet, finger or wand vibrators. If you want dual stimulation, which is where the vibrator stimulates internally as well as externally on the clitoris, try a rabbit vibrator.
To find out more about internal and external stimulation, read our guide: Internal vs external vibrators.
Make sure you pay attention to the vibrator dimensions before you make a purchase. If you're a beginner, we recommend an internal vibrator that's up to 7 inches in length and no larger than 4 inches in girth, which is the distance measured around the toy, and 2 inches in diameter.
Many vibrators come with multiple speeds and vibration patterns, usually ranging anywhere between 1-20 speeds and 1-15 vibration patterns, although some have a lot more! Make sure you check these functions out in the description before purchasing your toy as having variety will keep things exciting. You can choose from app-controlled, remote-controlled, or button-controlled vibrators.
If you're living in a family home or with flatmates, you'll probably want a vibrator that's quiet for discretion. While there's nothing to be embarrassed about when buying or using a vibrator, it can still be embarrassing if we get caught in the act. Be sure to check out the product description and reviews to understand the noise level before you purchase. Remember that all vibrators will make some noise, even if they are described as being quiet.
The material your vibrator is made from is important for understanding how to care for your vibrator and what lubricant to use with it. Silicone and ABS plastic are popular vibrator materials that are body-safe, easy to clean and last for many years. Some vibrator materials that are porous, such as TPE or TPR, can harbour bacteria and should be disposed of after nine months, or used with a condom. Read our sex toy material guide for more information.
If you're wondering whether to buy a battery operated or rechargeable vibrator, we recommend rechargeable. Rechargeable vibrators are better for the environment, they're more convenient as most now have USB chargers, and they tend to be more powerful than their battery-operated counterparts. If you can afford to spend a little more, opt for a rechargeable toy.
If you want to be able to take your toy into the bath or shower for slippery and sexy fun times, make sure you buy a fully waterproof vibrator. A splash-proof vibrator isn't fully waterproof and shouldn't be submerged completely underwater.
