Guide To Vibrators for Beginners

A beginner's guide to vibrators

So you want to buy a vibrator - but where do you start? What’s this mysterious Rabbit you’ve heard so much about? What on earth are Eggs? And are Wands really magical?

If you’re new to the world of vibrators, don’t worry, babe, we’re here to help. Knowledge is power and we do love to share; our guide to vibrators will teach you everything you need to know about these small, but mighty, machines.

What is a vibrator?

If you don’t know then you’ve come to the right place. A vibrator is just one of many sex toys - and trust us, there are plenty of them out there! - and is designed to provide pleasure, often to the point of orgasm.

Some are designed to just stimulate the clitoris; some will stimulate the G-Spot similar to penetrative sex; and some will do both at the same time - in case you needed another reason to love them.

How to use a vibrator alone

How you will use a vibrator depends entirely on which one you have chosen - skip ahead if you want to pick your favourite. But if it’s your first time, we’d recommend starting slow; don’t walk before you can run.

Pick a toy that’s recommended for beginners and, for your first solo venture, make sure you’re alone and won’t be interrupted. Turn it on and see how it feels. Move it around to experience the sensations on different areas. Turn the settings up and down to find what works for you.

Don’t be disappointed if you don’t reach orgasm - just focus on what feels good. You’ll get there eventually, honey, just stick with it.

How to use a vibrator during sex

Sex toys are the perfect way to introduce something new into your relationship, and we have a few tricks up our sleeve to help you get started with vibrators...

  • It’s not just for girls - vibrators are perfect for use on your man. Turn it on a low setting and run it up and down their shaft and across the head of the penis
  • During oral sex, hold a buzzin’ bullet against your cheek; unexpected, intense and hot as hell
  • And vice versa! When he’s going down on you, have him use a G-Spot vibrator for double the impact
  • Pick one of our smaller models such as a vibrating cock ring to vibrate against your clitoris during penetrative sex. Just like with our oral tips, he’ll feel the vibrations through your body - guaranteed to drive him wild

The different types of vibrators

Good vibes come in all shapes and sizes, but they’ve all got that buzz. That kick. Exactly what you need to get you off - whether you’re alone, or pushing foreplay to its limits with your partner. But not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered, girl. Step up, read on and prepare to meet your new best friends.

Bullets

Looking for the best vibrator for beginners? We recommended a bullet. It’s always our go-to first for a vibrator apprentice, but they’re perfect for those who have been playing longer. Small in size - usually just a few inches - but built with powerful vibrations in mind. They’re ideal for use during sex - as their size won’t get in the way of your partner - foreplay, or a little solo play. Target your clit, or explore other areas.

Those who are new to the wonderful world of vibrators should take care to go for something easy, as the vibrations can feel somewhat extreme in the very beginning. Opt for a bullet with different settings, so you can find out exactly what works for you, and how to push those boundaries.

Clitoral Vibrators

Although bullets will hit the spot and deliver incredible stimulation to your clit, there are plenty of other paths to pleasure, and clitoral vibrators are the next step up. Suction of flicking motions takes the feelings to a whole new level by delivering powerful sensations that you will never have imagined.

The shape of clitoral vibrators have been specially designed for optimum clitoral stimulation, and can vary from point-like tips to a cup that surrounds the clitoris and sucks. They’re more powerful than bullets, but don’t be afraid to go exploring

Finger Vibrators

Take the phrase ‘at your fingertips’ to a whole new level. Finger vibrators are simply a powerful little bullet vibe with a loop to slip your finger through - take full control and pinpoint your pleasure with ease. There’s no need to hold onto a bullet, which leaves the rest of your fingers free to wander.

They can spice up your solo play or can be worn by you or your partner to enhance penetrative sex. No slippery bullets if there’s lube involved!

Shaft vibrators

Better than the real thing? Or the best of both worlds? These straightforward vibrators can double down as clit-stims, but are really made for deep penetration - with a naughty little kick. Simple, yet effect, and a classic for a reason. Find your perfect partner, and choose between sleek, soft, ribbed and realistic designs.

As you become more familiar with vibrators, you’ll be sure to find your favourite that you return to time and time again. And we know ours; the Sleek Seven Inch. Smooth and firm; a true classic.

G-spot Vibrators

Looking for a toy that really hits the spot? Sorry. We couldn’t resist. But you won’t be able to either when we tell you what’s in store. The curved vibes of G-Spot Vibrators can be used on your clit, sure, but they’re specifically designed for internal stimulation.

Because of their design, which features a thicker head, targets the most sensitive part of your vagina, which means serious pleasure. Lube up, start slowly, and push yourself to the limit with powerful vibrations targeted straight at your G-Spot. Although it may be shrouded in mystery, the mythical G-Spot is associated with female ejaculation, so don’t be afraid to push yourself over the edge.

Vibrating Love Eggs

Feeling wild? Love Eggs are ideal for those with a seriously kinky streak - these small internal vibrators come with remote controls, perfect for handing yourself over to a partner. Hands-free pleasure at your lover’s beck and call - what could be finer?

They are designed to be inserted and nestle nice and snug against your G-Spot. The soft vibrations will deliver powerful pleasure directly to your most sensitive part.

For those looking to kick their kinks up to their limits, wireless and app-controlled versions are devilish little devices for taking things outdoors, and truly giving up control. Turn up the vibrations whilst you’re out and about, and you’ll be dying to get behind closed doors.

Rampant Rabbits

The Rampant Rabbit is our gift to the girls of the world - sex toy revolution worth screaming. No need to thank us; the pleasure was all ours. All stories have a beginning, and ours started with the Original.

The imitators are flattering, but Ann Summers is the only place you’ll find the real deal. Prepare to meet your bunny, honey. The Rampant Rabbit combines a classic vibrating dildo, with clit-stim bunny ears unlike any bullet you’ll ever feel. The internal shaft provides serious internal pleasure while the ears hit your clit just right so you can lay back and enjoy the ride.

There are plenty to choose from; different movement styles and sizes. Some thrust to replicate penetrative sex, whilst others rotate to hit all your internal pleasure points at once. There’s a whole world of rabbits out there, so hop right in - you won’t regret it.

Anal Vibrators

Looking to switch things around? Anal vibrators add an irresistible element to backdoor play - and are an easy way to introduce anal sex into the bedroom. For those who are brand new to anal toys, vibrating butt plugs are the perfect choice, whether you’re working up to something bigger or just taking the good vibes as they come.

If you’re looking to step it up, Vibrating Anal Beads will send tremors through every inch - slowly remove them at the point of orgasm for unbelievable pleasure.

Magic Wand Vibrators

Just like magic. Wands are the most powerful vibrating toys you’ll ever find. Work your way up, or take the plunge - either way, you’ll never find anything else like them.

Originally designed as body massagers, we don’t know who first discovered their much more fun applications, but we’re forever in their debt. Wands come in all shapes and sizes, with heads in slightly firmer plastic or soft and sensual silicone, and a range of flexible handles. Even the mini versions have some serious heft to them that’s just oh-so satisfying. Turn them up, and let yourself go.

Looking to learn some spells of your own? Our recommendation for magical apprentices is the Bodywand Plug in Massager. Design to his every spot with mind-blowing vibrations, its 3 metre cord will have you playing all over the house.
