HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT VIBRATOR

Beginners trying to find the perfect vibrator should consider some factors: if it is an affordable vibrator, the design of the vibrator, the material of the vibrator, and whether it is rechargeable or not. Use this blog to know how to choose a perfect vibrator.

Some people are less shy nowadays about purchasing vibrators than a decade ago. Vibrators are getting less stigmatized with time. There are thousands of places to purchase sex toys both online and physically. You buy a vibrator because you can. You cannot go into a sex shop or browse online and buy the first vibrator you see. However, you can, but you will most probably purchase the wrong one. Most people are still concerned about discretion when they are buying vibrators. They buy a vibrator that is appealing and discreet and overlook every other feature that would have been useful to them. The following are the points to should consider when buying vibrators;

Purpose

All beginners should know that vibrators do not serve the same purpose. Vibrators are of two main broad branches, internal and external vibrators. Some are meant to work on the clitoris, some go after the g-spot, others are anal, and some are versatile. The clitoris vibrator will not help you if you wanted a vibrator that would excite your clitoris only, and you went out and came back home with a g-spot vibrator. Research the type of vibrator that you want. You could probably be looking for a vibrator that you can use with your partner. You will not want a vibrator between the two of you during sex. A small one will be best. You may need to walk to the sex toy shop to ask the questions you are wondering about. Consider reading the descriptions and the reviews before buying a vibrator if you are shopping online.

Size

The size of the vibrator matters when using it on your clitoris and other parts of the body. However, bigger may not be better if you were hoping that the vibrator you picked online was small. Getting a size that you did not want cannot be pleasant for online store shoppers. Some vibrators seem small in pictures, but in reality, they are huge. An example is the wand vibrator. Smith & Pérez-Atamoros (2006) noted that the smallest wand massage vibrator is 9 inches long, and the largest is 14 inches long. It is hard to believe that the wand vibrators can be 4 inches long from the pictures online. That's how the description will come in handy. Do not take the vibrator if the seller has not indicated its size. Move on to another online shop. Compare the measurements you read online against items you have at home to know what to expect. The best alternative would be to check out the vibrators at the sex toy and go home happy with what you ordered.

Price

There are various vibrators on the market, and they all have their price. Some are so expensive that they are referred to as designer or luxury vibrators. A smart beginner would not spend money on an expensive vibrator. What if they buy the vibrator and realize that they do not like vibrators? Buy a vibrator that is easy on your budget. The most important trick in life is always starting small, even when buying vibrators. Start with an affordable vibrator before you splash money on an expensive vibrator. Besides, sometimes expensive vibrators are expensive for nothing. Sometimes it is about making a profit and meeting overhead costs. It has been said that cheap is expensive, and it could be true, especially if the vibrator is very cheap. That could reflect the material used to make it, and you will be back at the sex toy shop seeking recommendations on the best vibrator to buy. Sometimes cheap is affordable and does the job perfectly. The trick is to window-shop and compare prices.

The Material of the Vibrator

Vibrators have been tested to be consumer-friendly, but the one material everyone swears with is silicon. Rullo et al. (2019) stated that silicon is popular because it is non-porous, soft, and easy to clean. The least popular material is jelly-like materials because they are porous and, therefore it, holds bacteria. The last thing we want to start dealing with is an infection that we got from a vibrator.

Design of the Vibrator

Some people wouldn't bother with how the vibrator looks and instead focus on its functions. But there are people among us who like cute things. Some people find cute things sexy, and there is nothing sexier than a cute vibrator. It's unlikely you'll use it as much as you would if it were a cute vibrator.

Is it Noisy?

Some people want a vibrator they can use discreetly, and nothing screams discretion than a vibrator that is not noisy. Some vibrators come with settings to help control the noise (Dillon, 2008). Luxury vibrators can go as silent as you want them to because the manufacturer understands discretion is important. Therefore, they fix the vibrators with almost silent motors.

Does it use batteries, or is it rechargeable?

Vibrators using batteries or rechargeable are good. The advantage of a battery-charged vibrator is that you do not have to sit and wait for the vibrator to charge. The disadvantage of battery-operated is you must have batteries at the stand–by for the times that you will want to use the vibrator, and the vibrator runs out of batteries because you will have to find other ways to take care of your arousal. Replacing batteries whenever they run out is also costly and boring. Rechargeable vibrators are environment-friendly and economically convenient compared to battery-operated vibrators ( Mckeal, 2008).

Conclusion

Vibrators can improve our sex lives as individuals, for you can explore and satisfy your desires. Vibrators are not for solo play only. You can involve your partner, helping you reconnect and strengthen the relationship. When shopping for vibrators, you need not panic about the stigma that may be staring at you. People buy vibrators because they are adults and can do whatever pleases them.
