Love your vibrator – 6 tips for beginners

If you’ve never experimented with a vibrator before, chances are you may feel a little intimidated. What was once taboo – is now fairly commonplace among woman, but somehow you haven’t jumped on board yet.

 

Well, relax, although you may feel a little out of the loop, and like there are so many things to know and catch up on, we’ve pulled together a few tips to make the process easier and – like it should be – fun!

 

Tip #1 – Go Shopping With a Friend

When looking for your first vibrator, the shopping experience can be a little overwhelming. There are so many brands, models, shapes and sizes. How do you know which one to take home?

 

The key to enjoying your first vibrator is ensuring you approach the experience with curiosity and excitement. Turn your shopping task into a fun afternoon with a friend. Keep the mood light.  Whether you are shopping for vibrators online or in person, keep an open mind – and remember pleasure and excitement are guaranteed at the end of this journey. 

 

#2 – Do your Research

Make sure to ask lots of questions and do your research. For online shoppers, reviews are hugely important. Although everyone’s wants and desires are different, reading reviews is a great way to learn things about each product that you may never have thought of. 

 

Reviews are also a great resource for those that may be a little bit shy when it comes to asking specific questions to customer support teams and sales associates. Benefit from others test-driving these products and look for a brand that has excellent reviews and great feedback when it comes to customer service and product satisfaction.  Some of the best selling brands on the market include Lelo and Womanizer.

 

#3 – Experiment with Your New Vibrator

Depending on the toy you choose, you will either need to purchase batteries or charge your toy before the first use.  Tip – we tend to prefer toys with chargers, as they’re more environmentally friendly and generally are better value for your money, since you don’t have to keep buying batteries. 

 

It’s also a good idea to rinse your toy with soap and water once you take it out of its packaging.

 

For most women, setting the mood is very important for arousal. Consider taking a hot bath, lighting candles and having a glass of wine – whatever makes you feel relaxed and sensual. 

 

As with intercourse, lube is essential to enjoying your vibrator. Make sure to avoid a silicone lube with a silicone toy. (Silicone on silicone will warp your toy and can even start to disintegrate it). Some of our favourites water-based lubes include Pink Water Lubricant, Astroglide Gel Lubricant and Sliquid H2O Intimate Lubricant

 

All that’s left is to get comfortable and enjoy experimenting with your new toy.  

 

#5 - Practice Makes Perfect

If your first time experimenting with your new vibrator is – ahem – a little anticlimactic, don’t worry. Practice makes perfect, and orgasms are heavily dependent on being able to relax your body and fully enjoy the experience.

 

Like we said at the beginning, approaching your new toy (and how your body reacts) with open curiosity will help. Commit to exploring your vibrator a few nights a week. See what you like, cycle through the different settings and test what intensity feels best.  

 

There is a whole world of climaxes ahead of you – from quick and intense to a slow, steady build with a powerful orgasm at the end – the fun is experiencing them all with your new vibrator.

 

#6 – Loop your Partner in

Once you get comfortable with your toy and loving it, consider exploring it with your partner. While you may be afraid of introducing a sex toy into your relationship, the majority of adults really enjoy spicing things up.

  

A great way to broach the subject is to suggest casually to your partner, “I think it’d be fun to try something new – what do you think about testing out a toy together?” Exploring the shared benefits of toys in the bedroom can enhance the experience for you both, when you are ready. 

 

For both parties – but particularly woman, a little extra vibration on the clitoris during intercourse can really enhance her experience and ability to reach pleasurable climax.

 

#7 – Treat your Vibrator right

If you want your toy to last, treat it with proper product care. You can either purchase a toy cleaner, or use soap and water. Make sure you clean your toy after every use, as this helps to both protect your health and safety and prolong the duration of your toy.

 

Tip: never go from anal use to vaginal use without cleaning your toy first.
