Best Vibrators for Beginners

If you are new to the vibrator game, the abundance of options might seem quite daunting. But don’t fret, if you’ve been wondering where to buy a vibrator, you’re in safe hands! Just read on to see the different types of vibrators and work out which one is going to launch your rocket.

Before you hit ‘checkout’ on a vibrator that looks good, start at the beginning and think about a few things first...

  • How are you going to use your new toy? Solo play, foreplay or during sex?
  • Do you want to use it on multiple erogenous zones, internally, externally or anally?
  • Do you have flatmates so will want to keep extra quiet?
  • Do you prefer soft, rumbling sensations or harder textures?
  • How do you want your toy to move, or would you prefer to move it yourself?

Vibrators for Women – Choosing the Perfect Toy for You

When choosing your favourite new toy, you need to consider what you like, or what you think you’ll like. There are several vibrator types to choose from, the one you choose will depend on whether you want:

Clitoral stimulation - Go back to basics with a good old buzzin’ Bullet. Or for stronger sensations a Clitoral Vibrator will do the job well.

Internal stimulation - Take real feel to a whole new level. Vibrating Dildos are designed to target your G-spot for penetrative satisfaction.

The best of both worlds - The start of a sex toy revolution, the Rampant Rabbit ® ticks both boxes. Our iconic Rampant Rabbits ® is still considered one of the best vibrators for women and feature ears to stimulate your clit and a shaft to deliver vibes to your G-spot simultaneously. You simply can’t be the original when searching for the best rabbit vibrators on the market.

Something for the G-spot - For keeping it simple and straight to the OH, you can’t go wrong with a classic G-spot Vibrator.

Men’s Vibrators – Finding the Perfect fit

We’re not just for girls. We have a huge range of toys for men looking to put a little spark into their solo play.

A masturbation buzz - Try something new on for size with our range of male masturbators, plenty of which vibrate for a whole new way to climax.

P-spot Stimulation - Anal play is a pleasure goldmine for men, thanks to the location of the P-spot. This is the male equivalent of the female G-spot, found a couple of inches inside the anus. For this we’d recommended a Prostate Massager.

Vibrators for Couples – Adding Another Dimension to Your Sex Life

A toy to use during sex - Couples who play together stay together. Put a ring on it with a Cock Ring – perfect for pleasuring you both. The ring will keep him harder for longer and improve stamina, while the vibrations target her clit and stimulate you both.

Spicing up foreplay – Hell yeah! Use a Body Wand and massage oil to explore each other – slide over them to deliver intense vibrations and discover where they like it most. Powerful and versatile, a body wand is a great way to share mind blowing vibrations.

A way to play together - Who said playtime has to stay in the bedroom? Give yourself over to your partner with a Remote Control Toy. Kinky, discreet and a perfect way to start foreplay over dinner on date night. If you are buying your girlfriend a vibrator, be sure to get a little shopping inspiration and ask her what she likes first.
