Factors to Consider Before Buying Finger Vibrators

Power and Runtime

What differentiates vibrators is the type of power it generates and the way it is powered. Power is a constant aspect of all vibrators. Consider if you need the one with in-built batteries or replaceable batteries before choosing the right vibrator for yourself. The replaceable battery-powered sex toys are perfect for you if you are a fan of traveling or if you don't have easy access to electricity. Their runtime varies according to battery capacity.  A vibrator with at least 30 min to 90 min can be a perfect one for finger vibrators. According to Bardzell & Bardzell (2011), consider the smell of the sex toy and grip as they may influence your pleasure.

Material Used

Ensure the material used on a vibrator is firm and flexible. Rigid materials like stainless steel, glass, and metals are considered the best since they are body-safe, easy to clean, and do not harbor toxic bacteria. However, if you need flexible and smooth materials, go for medical-grade rubber and jelly materials. The sex lubricant you choose depends on the toy's material.

Vibration Pulsations and Speed Patterns

Some finger vibrators come with a one-speed pattern, while others have as many vibration patterns depending on how naughty you need them. Brandt (2011) advised that beginners can start with finger vibrators with a few vibration pulsations and speed patterns.  Sex toy pros can buy vibrators with more intense vibration speeds and pulsations.

Is the Toy Waterproof?

Waterproof vibrators can withstand water splashes since they have waterproof compartments. This allows a partner to play with them in the bathroom without damaging the internal components. However, it is recommended to consider how deep the toy can go inside water before taking it in the shower or bathtub.
