Vibrator Sex Toy Guide



Vibrators can help you explore your sexuality in wonderfully creative ways. During solo play or with a partner(s), as an accompaniment to sex or as the main event, by themselves or in conjunction with other toys, the possibilities seem endless. How does one choose a vibrator from what seems like a limitless selection? Like the choice of a lover, the choice of a vibe is personal — what leaves one person yawning might cause another to writhe in ecstasy. Therefore you must understand your tastes. What do you enjoy while masturbating? How do you like a partner to pleasure you? About what do you fantasize? What kind of stimulation and fantasies are you experiencing at the moment you have an orgasm? With this information in mind, read through the following guide, whether you are a first-time buyer or you already own a whole drawer full of vibes:

Where on your or your lover’s body will you use the vibrator?

Clitoris. A large percentage of women require clitoral stimulation in order to cum. For years women have relied on the legendary Hitachi Magic Wand for an almost unbearably exquisite sensation. The equally renowned Eroscillator and the new Synergy Pleasure System help women stimulate their clits, and now feature new attachments that are even more effective at targeting this prime pleasure zone. Mini Massagers and Bullet Style Vibes zero in perfectly on your bliss button. Or try slipping a Clit Flicker on your lover’s cock or dildo for that extra thrill while you have sex.

Vagina. If you delight in the internal fullness and pressure of penetration, play with our whimsical Fun Factory vibes, or try an attachment on the powerful Hitachi Magic Wand.

Clit/Vagina. For those who don’t want to choose between their two favorite areas, the hugely popular dual action Rabbit Vibrators provide satisfying penetration with fluttering “ears” that will tickle your clit.

Anus. Enjoy a butt buzz from toys specifically designed for anal insertion such as the iPlug and our vibrating butt plugs.

G-Spot. Our customers love the G-Spotter for reaching this pleasure powerhouse, or use attachments on the Hitachi Magic Wand, the Eroscillator, or the Synergy Pleasure System.

All Over. For a waterproof and insertable toy with different attachments for nipples, clit, penis, testicles, or G-spot, you can’t beat the popular Eroscillator and the new Synergy Pleasure System.

Yours and Mine. Double the pleasure with the Feeldoe, a vibrating double dil. Typically, a woman inserts one end in her vagina while the other end protrudes like a penis, allowing her to penetrate her partner’s favorite orifice.

In what setting will you use it?

At Home. The classic plug-in massagers like the Hitachi Magic Wand and Eroscillator will deliver strong vibes without losing power when you need it most.

On The Go. Surprise your lover during your next road trip, as our extensive line of classic battery-powered vibes gives you the freedom to take the fun with you. For travel, Mini Massagers and Bullet Style Vibrators slip easily into a purse or pocket. The Synergy Pleasure System travels well, as it is cordless and rechargeable.

In The Shower. Many of our Mini Massagers and Fun Factory vibes can be used in the bath, shower, or during any kind of watersports. The versatile Eroscillator also stands up well to wet play. Remember to choose something a bit more powerful than you need, as the strength of the vibe will be diminished in water.

In Public. Don our Remote Control Butterfly or remote butt plug and enjoy getting buzzed in public. Hand over the controls to a partner before heading to a restaurant, and the other diners will never guess the source of your ecstasy. Remote toys generally are quiet enough to wear discreetly in a bar, movie, or restaurant, but you might be found out if you played in an extremely quiet setting …like a wedding ceremony (although being “outed” at a wedding might be interesting!) Keep in mind that the sound is muffled by skin, clothing, and ambient noise, so they are quieter during use than they seem to be “out of the box”.

With Discretion. At times you will want a vibe that doesn’t look like a sex toy. Many of our Mini Massagers and Bullet Style Vibes look quite innocent yet get the job done. The Hitachi Magic Wand has long masqueraded as a deep muscle massager, and it certainly does soothe those aches! If noise is an issue, the remote controlled vibes tend to be quietest because they must allow for discretion during public use. Also, jelly vibrators are quieter because the material muffles the sound a bit. Alternatively, you might try covering up the buzz of your favorite vibe with music, or by snuggling under a blanket while you play. Remember that any buzzing sound will be amplified if you use the toy in water.

Do you enjoy strong or gentle sensation?

The strongest sensation can be had from the plug-in massagers; such as the Hitachi Magic Wand. Most classic vibes draw their power from batteries, which provide an intermediate level of stimulation. Typically, toys powered by watch batteries give a gentle (but focused) feel.


What sort of material is right for you?

Silicone. The ultimate material for sex-toys, silicone is smooth, non-porous, and retains body heat. It withstands aggressive play and will last for years. Always use water-based (never silicone-based) lubes like Astroglide with silicone vibes and attachments. Silicone toys clean up with soap and water and can be disinfected so they are safe for use with multiple partners. It is the material of choice for those with latex allergies.

Jelly. Like silicone, jelly feels smooth, pliable, and realistic. Because jelly is soft and porous, we recommend that you use a condom over your toy to extend its life. Also, jelly cannot be disinfected so a condom will allow for multiple users. The material cleans easily with soap and water.

Hard Materials Like Plastic and Acrylic. These silky smooth, slippery, and non-porous toys stay slick for long periods with only a little lube. Because this material has no “give”, a toy made from it may feel larger than a similar sized toy made of silicone or jelly. Use condoms if you plan to share these toys, and clean with soap and water.

How much do you want to spend?

We carry a full line of vibrators so there’s bound to be one that fits your budget. For example, if you are looking for an inexpensive, entry-level rabbit vibe to try out, consider the Original Rabbit. If only the best will do, then buy as you would a car, and stick with the superior engineering of the German-made Fun Factory vibes or the Japanese Vibratex products, such as the Rabbit Pearl, Rabbit Habit, and Butterfly Vibrator. Another top quality rabbit is the silicone Impulse Snow Bunny Crystal Rabbit, loaded with more features than a high-end sports car.

What sort of look pleases you?

For some, the appearance of a vibrator matters a great deal. There are those who prefer one that closely resembles a penis, others feel strongly that it should look like anything but. A classic smooth, missile-like design has endured over the years. Some people are drawn to a more high-tech look like the futuristic iVibe collection from Doc Johnson. Some delight in whimsical models like the Vibratex Butterfly or the Impulse Gyrating Beaded Dolphin. The playful, colorful designs of the Fun Factory vibes are a favorite among many of our customers.

What do other people like?

The babes on Sex and the City rave about rabbit vibes. Our top sellers among these dual-action dynamos are the Original Rabbit, the Rabbit Habit, and the Rabbit Pearl. The Hitachi Magic Wand has remained a top seller for many years. The diminutive Dr. Ruth Westheimer endorses the Eroscillator, and the Oxygen Network’s Sue Johanson recommends the Synergy Pleasure System and the Butterfly Vibrator by Vibratex. Still undecided? Ask your friends and lovers what they enjoy. Maybe they’ll even try one out on you!


We hope this introduction to vibrators together with our thorough product descriptions helps you choose a vibe that will give you great pleasure. Remember that these products are called toys for a reason, so have fun and play! We encourage you to experiment with different types to see what you like. Ultimately, you may buy various toys — variety is the spice of life!
