Picking A Vibe

How-To Pick a Vibrator

By Amanda-Faye Jimenez

With so many buzzing, humming, and even rotating devices to choose from, what seems like a simple, sexy task can get a little intimidating. Whether you’re shopping for your first vibrator or in the market for something new, there are a few important questions you can ask yourself to help the process along.

Why should I get a vibrator?

  • Most women find some kind of vibration pleasurable and many actually need that kind of steady stimulation to have an orgasm. That’s totally normal and ok. No, you won’t get addicted, but if you do find introducing a vibe into your sex life helps you get off, chances are your partner will be perfectly pleased as well.

What kind of vibrators are out there?

  • The amount of styles, speeds, and pulsations vibrators come in could create enough heavy breathing to power a small city for weeks.
  • Clitoral Vibes are vibrators specifically designed to be used externally. Pretty much any vibrator can be used on the clit, but many clitoral vibes aren’t meant to be inserted, like The Pleasure Chest Mini Rocket, a one-speed, water-resistant, portable classic. The multi-speed, multi-function ergonomic wonder Fun Factory Laya Spot is another example of a vibrator that’s a perfect fit for clit stimulation, but it can be inserted just slightly for some g-spot action.
  • Slimline Vibes remain popular because they are a bit more versatile and most are fairly inexpensive. They usually have a twist dial or push button at the bottom to control the speed. We love the Metallic Shimmer because it’s a lot of power and not at all pricey. If this is your favorite type of vibe or you just love a bit of luxury, Jimmyjane Iconic Smoothie is the obvious choice, with its ultra-powerful motor and one-year warranty.
  • G-spot Vibes are curved to access the g-spot. Lelo’s Gigi continues to blow our minds and fly off our shelves due to the spot-on curvature, silky silicone cover, and the fact that it’s rechargeable. The fully water-submergible JeJoue G-Ki is covered in 100% silicone and has joints that lock in place to reach just the right spots. Great for prostate stimulation also.
  • Rabbit-style Vibes first hopped into our hearts and top drawers courtesy of Charlotte on Sex and the City. These vibrators feature a rotating or vibrating shaft of some kind and an external clit stimulator. They’ve seen a million incarnations and copycats since, but Vibratex, the founders of the original Rabbit have teamed up with Jimmyjane to bring us the Iconic Rabbit, which is comparable in price to most rabbits but far excels in style and quality.
  • Anal Vibes vibrate on the delicate, sensitive nerves around the anus or, for guys, on the prostate. Stick with anal vibes made of silicone, like Pandora or Rude Boy, otherwise use a condom on your toy.
  • Couples’ Vibes can only be used with a partner. They literally explode when single people turn them on. Just kidding, anyone can use vibes geared toward couples, and likewise some couples prefer more traditional vibes. The more mainstream sex gets, though, the more thoughtful sex enhancers for couples come out on the market. We-Vibe is the hottest new item for two because it’s made of silicone, waterproof, rechargeable, and can actually be worn during sex. The Tor vibrating cockring from Lelo is one of the only rechargeable vibrating rings on the market. It gives strong sensations – including multiple speeds and vibration patters – to both partners.
  • Luxury Vibes often carry a pinky-out aesthetic, but the real benefit to most of these lies in the quality, body-safe materials they’re made of. Sure, Jimmyjane’s Little Chroma is a bit of an initial investment, but it’s nearly  silent, submersible in water, and boasts a stainless steel outer layer and replaceable motor. That’s more of a smart investment than splurge, if you ask us.
  • Discreet Vibes had to be extremely slick to get into this category. Pick one of these if you have curious kids or roommates or travel a lot. There are the obvious hidden in plain sight vibrators, like the Lipstick Vibe and then there are those like the Lelo Siri, which is ultra-quiet and looks nothing like a sex toy, yet has multiple speeds and vibration patters.

How do I use my vibe?

  • The individual vibrator’s intended use, instructions, and your personal taste will guide you, but here’s a few tips: Experiment with the on/off, speed change, and pulsation functions before you get down to business so you  won’t end up using turbo drive on a clit with training wheels. You can use your vibrator to tease your favorite spots like nipples, neck, and thighs. A drop or two of lube helps a clit vibe glide around nicely and is a must for inserting a g-spot vibrator, vibrating dildo, or anal vibe.
