Vibrators have been pleasuring us sexy humans for quite some time already! But did you know that they were initially invented as a means to cure hysteria in housewives?
Indeed, going back to the 1900’s, physicians would ‘treat’ their patients when they felt fatigued and emotionally unstable because, of course, women weren’t built to want/enjoy sexual stimulation. Little did these professionals know, the vibrator did so much more than simply ”treat their tired symptoms”!
Soon, women began talking amongst themselves, finding ways to get their hands on their own vibrators, which were marketed as neck massagers. Even today, you’ll find a slew of magic wands that are said to target “sore and aching muscles”. Sneaky, sneaky!
Needless to say, the vibrator hit the ground running from day one, and is still a number one pleasure product for all kinds of endless satisfaction and self pleasure.
Which is why we’re all about educating and thrilling our readers with resources and information that’ll satisfy their lustful desires. And understanding vibrators is your first step towards nurturing your sexual health and getting the satisfaction you so rightly deserve.
Thus, we’ve rounded up the best collection of vibrators for beginners, introducing you to the various styles, sizes, functions, and brands, so that you can make an informed decision when it comes to getting your first vibrator.
Whether you love direct stimulation, internal stimulation, clitoral stimulation, or other, you’ll find a sassy sex toy that’ll get your motor going. After all, one’s sexual health is just as important as physical and mental health.
But first, let’s dive into all the burning questions you may have concerning vibrators…
What Are the Different Types of Vibrators?
When it comes to the different types of vibrators, the choices are seemingly limitless! And for those who want to indulge are thus lucky enough to be spoilt for choice!
If you’re on the hunt for your first vibrator, and unsure of which type of vibrator to get started with, here’s a list of sex toys to get you acquainted:
- Wand Vibrators: a massaging pleasure product used either for sensual massages or sexual pleasure
- Bullet Vibrators: a small and petite sex toy that’s mighty and perfect for travel
- G-Spot Vibrators: an internal vibrator that has a curved tip to target the G-spot in women
- Rabbit Vibrators: a dual stimulation vibrator that targets the clitoris and the G-spot simultaneously
- Clitoral Vibrators: a sex toy that stimulates the clitoris
- App-Controlled or Remote-Controlled Vibrators: a vibrator that comes with either a remote or an app that allows you to control its functions and speeds

What is the Best Starting Vibrator?
While each vibrator has its own sense of magic and sexual euphoria, we strongly recommend either a wand or a bullet vibrator for your first vibrator, as they’re considered to be the best vibrators for beginners.
This is mainly because they’re both easy to use, get the job done erotically and beautifully, and they’ll provide you with a more broad kind of sensation as opposed to intense targeted pleasure.
Using a wand or a bullet as your starting vibrator means that you can explore your erogenous zones gently and sensually, while enjoying direct stimulation and finding out what makes your toes curl and what doesn’t exactly float your boat.
And once you know that, you can branch out into some of the more targeted sex toys for even sexier self pleasure.
How Do You Masturbate with a Vibrator?
The way in which you masturbate with a vibrator will depend on the kind of vibrator you own. And now that you know of the different kinds of sex toys available, it’ll be a lot easier to learn how to masturbate with one!
For good measure however, here’s a little cheat sheet when it comes to masturbating with a vibrator:
Clitoral Stimulation Vibrators: this non-penetrative sex toy is simply magical, as the clitoris has thousands of nerve endings waiting to bring you pleasure.
How to masturbate with a clitoral vibrator is to find the angle that fits perfectly against the clitoris aka direct stimulation, then choose your preferred vibration intensity and pattern.
You can use whatever kind of motion you desire, such as up and down or circles, or you could simply leave it in-place.
If you’re using a suction clitoral vibrator, you could either hover the hollow mouth over the clitoris or put it directly on top, then choose your favourite setting for a suckling kind of bliss you’ll love.
Internal Vibrators: For vulva-owners, an internal vibrator will target the G-spot while resembling that of penetrative sex.
This special zone, when stimulated, can bring you mind blowing orgasms, so giving an internal vibrator is definitely well worth the experience.
A G-spot vibrator will have a delicious curve so that it can target your special spot with ease. You can insert it slowly, with lube if necessary, and turn on the vibrations to experience all kinds of sexy feels.
Internal and External Stimulation (Dual) Vibrators: For double the fun, an internal and external vibrator, for vulva-owners, will target both the clitoris and the G-spot. An example of a dual vibrator, would be that of a rabbit vibrator.
In this way, you will insert the longer arm, while the shorter arm will nestle against your clit for a bout of direct stimulation full of buzzing delight.
Anal Stimulation Vibrators: Using anal stimulation vibrators, or even non-vibrating anal toys, takes patience and care.
The anal cavity is not as elastic as the vagina, so you’re going to want to start off small, perhaps with a finger. Once you’re comfortable with two or three fingers, which could take days, weeks, or even month, you could opt for some anal vibrations.
To use anal stimulation sex toys, make sure to use plenty of lubrication, and insert it slowly. We suggest waiting until you’re comfortable to turn on the buzzing sensations.
Prostate Stimulation Vibrators: The prostate is a gland that’ll bring penis-owners to their knees in ecstasy.
And while using a prostate vibrator is similar to using any other kind of anal vibrator, the difference is that a prostate vibrator is curved in such a way that it’ll give you direct stimulation of the prostate.
We suggest following the same rules as above if you’re hoping to use a prostate vibrator.
Penis Stimulation Vibrators: Penis stimulation vibrators are pleasure products such as male masturbators, fleshlights, and pocket pussies.
They’re an aid that’ll make your masturbation sessions even sexier, and are used either in conjunction with, or in place of, your hand, depending on which penis stimulation vibrator you have.
What Kind of Sensations Do You Want to Experience?
Now that you’re all clued up when it comes to masturbating with a vibrator, you’re also wiser and more informed about what kind of sensation you’d like to experience when you buy your first vibrator.
For example, you know that for clitoral stimulation, a suction vibrator, clitoral stimulator, or a dual vibrator will get you where you want to go. And for G-spot stimulation, internal vibrators are most definitely on the cards!
If you’re new to all of this, and you’re unsure of the kinds of sensations you want to experience, we suggest penciling in some much-deserved self pleasure ‘me’ time so that you can play with yourself using your hands.
You could massage your clitoris using your finger(s) in circles or different motions, stroke your shaft with different levels of tightness and intensity, or you could insert a finger or two into the vagina or anus to see how it feels.
If it’s anal stimulation you’re after, slowly use one finger, test the waters and see how you enjoy it. At first, it may be uncomfortable or strange, but this takes some time to get used to.
And when it comes to penis stimulation, if you enjoy your masturbation routines of self pleasure, you’ll almost certainly fall in lust with a penis stimulation vibrator… it merely makes the experience better and more magical!
Can I Use Lube with a Vibrator?
The short answer is yes! Using lube with a vibrator can really transcend your sexual health, and transform your self pleasure sessions, making it wetter, sexier and even more erotic. This is especially true when using internal vibrators.
The long answer? Well, sex toy vibrators are made using different kinds of materials. One vibrator may be coated in silicone, another could be made of glass or stainless steel.
So if you’re wondering which lube you can use with what vibrator, what will answer your question is to research the material your sex toy is made of.
For example, almost all silicone vibrators pair effortlessly with water-based lubricants. Silicone lube however is a little more fussy and can only be used with certain kinds of materials, such as hard plastic, glass, or stainless steel sex toys.
How to Clean a Vibrator?
Different vibrators require different cleaning methods, but it’s safe to say that the majority of vibrators are easily cleaned using lukewarm water and antibacterial soap.
But of course it’s always important to read up on your chosen vibrator to make sure you follow the correct cleaning procedure.
Something to consider when it comes to cleaning your vibrator would be the type of material your sex toy is made of. If it is silicone, the water-soap cleaning method works like a charm. For glass or stainless steel, you could opt to boil or place it in the dishwasher, and for porous sex toys, you’re going to want to do a more in-depth clean, as they’re more prone to bacteria.
You may also choose to use a specialised sex toy cleaner for one or all of these kinds of vibrators.
Another factor to consider would be whether your vibrator is waterproof or not. Some vibrators can happily be submerged in water, while others cannot.
Can Overusing a Vibrator Cause Damage to the Clitoris?
While some may believe that “overusing” a vibrator can cause damage to the clitoris, this is entirely false. And can you believe that there’s even a name for this so-called occurrence? Dead Vagina Syndrome!
For too long, women have been led to believe that vibrators will ruin them for partnered sex. To this day, some feel that using a vibrator will reduce the ability to orgasm or feel pleasure with a partner, and thus they’ve shunned the use of sex toys.
The good news is, science has our back, teaching us that there is no such thing as Dead Vagina Syndrome, and that one can enjoy the perks of using a vibrator until their heart's content.
Sure, you may experience a loss of sensation if you persist to use your vibrator for hours on end, but if you opt for a 10 to 20 minute break, you’ll resume that glorious pleasure once again.
How Much Should I Spend on a Vibrator?
You really need not spend an arm and a leg when it comes to buying a sex toy, especially if it’s your first vibrator. Some of the best vibrators are super affordable, so all it really takes is a bit of research to find the best vibrator for your specific desires and preferred stimulation.
With that, we suggest opting for budget-friendly when it comes to buying your first vibrator. This is so that you can experiment with different kinds of sensations to find your favourite. Once you’ve discovered what you truly love, you can choose to spend more or less on your preferred sex toy.
We also suggest that you be cautious when spending too much money on a sex toy when you don’t know much about it or the brand. Knowledge is power, so reading reviews and taking a look at sex toy websites will give you more peace of mind when you’re shipping out your hard-earned dollars.
