I talk to a lot of people about their toys when I am in the Playblue shop. I know the most asked questions, concerns or challenges. Buying the first vibrator for yourself or for your partner is exciting and scary at the same time. A long time ago I've been there too, and I made the same mistake as most people do, when they choose their first toy. Because most of us don’t know yet what is important and what to avoid before really having a direct experience. And even if your best friend has a vibrator and is open to talk about it, it just doesn’t mean that you are going to have the same experience or that you need the same thing.


So what to consider and how to make the best decision for you?



What is a vibrator?


To be honest what I find when I talk to people is that any pleasure toy that is able to make somebody cum is a vibrator for them. So not just vibrating bullets, clitoral vibrators, rabbits, wands are vibrators for them, but plenty of time even dildos.


In this post when I say vibrator, I mean a vibrating toy. 



Let’s start with a question:


What is your favourite way to self-pleasure? 


Do you go for clitoral orgasms?

Or self-penetration is the juicier part for you?

Do you love when your nipples get the most attention?

Or do you want your whole body activated and have sensations all over?
Maybe it is a combination of all of these that you find the most satisfying.



Your answers to these questions define which kind of vibrator to get first. 



If you are into clitoral orgasms, then choose a vibrating bullet or a clit sucking vibrator.


My favourite vibrating bullet is the Custom Bullets - Soft Rechargeable Spring Pattern 10 Speed Bullet, because it is very powerful and focused. It is not soft as the name suggests, but more on the harder style, however it is good material silicone.

This Pink Rechargeable Bullet also has an amazing reputation, and it is on the soft side. So if you want powerful waves but gentleness at the same time, this bullet is perfect for you.

Clitoral sucking toys are quite new still. You can choose one that is vibrating and sucking as well, so you can have more options to choose from. The Satisfyer Pro 2+ is one of the best on the market, and it is super easy to clean too. Check this hidden beast out here.


Wands are super famous for making you cum. They are powerful and you can use them all over the body. They are not “just” for clitoral orgasms, but your whole body can be pleasured by the vibrations.


The legendary Doxy is a plug in wand, so it can provide you those delicious waves of pleasure all over your body as long and as intensely as you want. 


The Rocks Off Oriel is a rechargeable wand that can go 3 hours with one charge, so you don’t need a socket and there are no cables around. If this is not enough, the flexible head also gives you more freedom.


Some wands have more potential than “just” a vibrating massaging head. They can be used for penetration as well. So you have the stimulation wherever or however you want it.

The Vive is an amazing vibrator brand. They also have a powerful wand that has dual motors, so the handle can also vibrate, AND it has the pulsating function that I love so much in the Kyra. If you have a wand like this, you can use the round head all over, and you can enjoy the vibrations and pulsations inside the body, or you can choose to come from the pulsations on the handle used on the clitoris (or on the prostate).


Javida has a multifunctional wand with a thrusting (and rotating) handle. 


The Dua for example has an interchangeable head. It can be used as a wand or you can add the rabbit head, and you have a joker toy.


Rabbits are the most popular vibrators for women. Having 2 motors taking care of all the delicious stimulations, so the vagina and the clitoris can have all the joy at the same time (if you want).


I would recommend starting with a smaller sized rabbit, like the Amoressa Jerry Premium Silicone Rechargeable Rabbit. This toy is ideal also to give extra stimulations to the g-spot. 


Do you prefer battery operated toys rather than rechargeable ones? Try the Easy Toys - Lily vibrator or the fun and active Glossy Rabbit Elvis


When you are afraid of being overwhelmed by powerful vibrations choose a toy with an app. This allows you to have the maximum control and flexibility over your vibrator. Satisfyer have lots of app-operated possibilities for you. 


I understand that it seems risky to pay more for a toy when you don’t know yet what you like exactly, but at the same time, the better the toy that you are using, the more likely that you are going to enjoy it. 


The Lelo Mona is the perfect example for you. The size is not intimidating at all. The design is exactly what your body needs. The material feels amazing to your body. It is super quiet, but that doesn’t take away any of the depth of the vibrating waves.

And of course, adding lube can be a game changer. Get your water based lube by clicking here.


Look around and start your collection with a curious mind. Explore and have the best orgasms ever.
