Let’s start with the basics! Vibrators are a type of sex toy used to create sexual stimulation and pleasure!
These are generally insertable dildos that vibrate, but not always, for example the magic wand massager cannot be inserted, yet is easily one of the most powerful vibrators on the market. Simply, it may be easier to think of a vibrator as an object that just vibrates and can be used for sexual pleasure.
WHY SHOULD I BUY A VIBRATOR?
You should by a vibrator to make your sexual playtimes awesome! You can rely on your vibrator to always be ready to get you off. As long as you keep it charged or have additional batteries, your vibrator will be there for you, whenever you need it.
A vibrator can be useful if you’re struggling to reach orgasm or want something that will get you there quicker. The intense vibrations are highly sort after as they take your play time to the next level.
HOW TO CHOOSE A VIBRATOR?
Choosing the right vibrator for you can be quite a challenge when there’s so many different sizes, styles and shapes available. You will need to ask yourself what you would like to get out of a vibrator to pick the best one. Does it need to be quiet? Do you want it to be extra powerful? Does it need to be waterproof? Maybe you want a specific size, or you don’t want it to look like a penis. There’s a lot of questions you need to answer to pick the perfect one for you, and maybe one will never be enough?
Take a good look through our guide to narrow your search down and consider these top 5 points below to help you pick the perfect partner.
- Size – Does it need to be big, or would you prefer a more generic size?
- Style – Does it need to be realistic, or something less penis shaped?
- Material – Would you be okay with jelly PVC, or maybe TPE, or silicone?
- Features - Is vibrating enough, or do you want it to rotate and thrust up and down?
- Price – What’s your budget? You want to get the most out of your money, without being completely out of money!
HOW DO YOU USE A VIBRATOR?
If you’ve just received your first vibrator, give it a quick wash in warm, soapy water – this is best practice with all new sex toys, wash them before their first use. Once cleaned, charge it up or insert the correct batteries and ensure all the electronics are working as you would expect. Now set the mood and make some time when you’re not going to be disturbed (unless you’re into that of course). When you’re ready to use the vibrator, apply a small amount of water-based lubricant to the tip and shaft of the vibrator and some to yourself and slowly begin to insert. Feel free to turn up the vibrations and turn on the modes as you go.
Don’t feel you need to immediately turn it up to maximum power, the lower settings are a great place to start, and you can work your way up to higher speeds and modes. If you have a partner, why not introduce your vibrator to your couple’s session? They’re a great way to turn up the heat between the sheets. Maybe you’ve purchased a remote control or app-controlled vibrator? These are especially good for couple’s play as your partner can control the vibrator using the controller.
- Clean all sex toys before their first use
- Set the mood and make sure you're ready for the experience
- Apply some water-based lubricant to the vibrator and yourself
- Gently insert using the smooth and tapered tip and begin to thrust
- Fantasise about whatever gets your rocks off
- Carefully increase the speeds and modes as you require
- When you're finished, make sure your vibrator is cleaned and stored properly
WHICH LUBRICANTS CAN I USE WITH MY VIBRATOR?
Using the correct lube with your vibrator is important! If you use the wrong lubricant, it could cause the toy to rot from the inside or cause the outer materials to breakdown. Not Sexy! Using the correct lubricant is down to the materials used to create the vibrator, however vibrators can often be made from a variety of materials.
To be completely safe, it’s best to ask yourself what type of lubricant are you planning to use?
If it’s water-based lubricant, you’re safe to use it with all sex toys, so do not worry.
If it’s a hybrid (water-silicone mix) it will usually be completely safe with any sex toy, but just double check on the bottle or the page where you purchased it, we’ve never found any that are not safe for use, but I would still double check.
If it says oil-based or silicone-based, do not use it with any sex toys. These types of lubricants cause the issues, particularly with silicone-based sex toys.
FOR EASE, JUST STICK TO USE WATER-BASED LUBRICANT WITH YOUR SEX TOY.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY VIBRATOR?
Cleaning your vibrator doesn’t need to be difficult and we’re not going to try and sell you sex toy cleaner here as the others would. First, make sure you remove any batteries for your safety. If the vibrator is waterproof, you can submerge it whole into some warm, soapy water and give it a good wash.
If the vibrator isn’t waterproof, then you will need to wipe it down using a lint free cloth, or simply submerge the tip and shaft into the water, without sinking in the electronics. Basically, if it’s not waterproof, be careful around the electronics and the controller, and work to clean the main body of the toy.
Once the toy is cleaned, leave it to air dry.

HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY VIBRATOR?
So, you’ve got a new favourite vibrator and you want to know how to make sure it lasts as long as possible. Maintaining your vibrator requires you to make sure it is cleaned after each use; it doesn’t have to be straight away, but it needs to be done.
Once it’s clean and dry, you just need to make sure it’s stored properly. To do this, make sure you store your vibrator in a cool, dark and dry place.
