Anal vibrators are specifically designed to be used anally. However, some other types of vibrators, such as classic vibrators, can also be used anally, but we recommend using a vibrator with a large base so there isn't a risk of the vibrator being pushed too far up the anus.
If you plan to use your vibrator anally you should always use a condom, as otherwise you risk transferring bacteria from your anus into other parts of your body. Always thoroughly clean your vibrator before and after each use, using hot, soapy water and sex toy cleaner.
The vibrator product description, packaging and instruction manual should outline whether or not the vibrator is waterproof. Splash-proof does not mean the vibrator is waterproof and a vibrator that needs to be plugged into a power source to run is not waterproof.
A good indication is if the vibrator doesn't have any crevices or areas that aren't covered seamlessly by the vibrators exterior material. If you're unsure, please ask us.
For internal stimulation, a classic vibrator, a wand vibrator or a rabbit vibrator are all great options for beginners. These vibrators are easy to use and they're a safe bet if you're buying your first vibe.
For external stimulation, such as the clitoris, a bullet vibrator is a perfect way to experiment. Bullet vibrators are small, simple to use, and affordable. They're also fun to use with a partner during foreplay or sex. Read our Beginners Guide to Vibrators for more information.
Battery powered vibrators tend to be less powerful than electric powered vibrators. Electric powered vibrators are usually designed with stronger motors which use more power.
Rechargeable vibrators will always be a better option in terms of convenience, but they are usually more expensive. However, the amount you'll end up spending on batteries will equal more in the long run, so if you can afford to spend a little more, opt for a rechargeable vibrator.
Couple's vibrators come in a range of different shapes, sizes and types, so the best vibrator for couples would be the vibe that fits your purpose the best.
Some couple's vibrators are designed to be worn during sex to stimulate both parties, such as We-Vibe's couples vibrators, while other couples vibes are used to stimulate each other’s body parts separately during foreplay or sex, such as finger vibrators, anal vibrators, clitoral vibrators and more.
