Buying Your First Vibrator

Buy your first sex toy

I’m going to take a slightly surprising direction here and advise that you don’t buy a Rampant Rabbit as your first model, it’s probably more than you can handle, it’s definitely more than you need and it’ll cost a lot more than a generic model. You can buy a Rampant Rabbit such as the little shaking one but you wont learn to drive in a £45,000 car so why start of with the Cadillac of the sex toy world? These are the important variables:

Safety of the Vibrator

It goes without saying that this is an electrical device you’re going to be placing in a very sensitive place, what most women don’t realise is that jelly like vibrators are porous. This means that they will absorb whatever lubricant and bacteria they sit in and cannot be sterilised even by boiling, if you buy a cheap generic sex toy you can be putting your health at risk. Stick to silicone or similar body safe plastics, they not only feel better but can be sterilised by boiling if you get adventurous putting them anywhere else.

Size of your First Vibrator

The size can be an issue, while you can always buy lube the truth is for your first ever vibrator you’re probably looking for something small like the bullet vibrator it’s nothing fancy but it is discreet both in size and volume which is a big plus (as you probably don’t live alone). Coming in at only £10 you’ll find it’s ideal for clitoral and vaginal stimulation and much easier to enjoy than a larger model. If you’re sure you want a life sized one then lean in the direction of either the Promises pink or possibly the Bishop.

Either of these are ideal in terms of dimension and power, not overly large but sufficient to pair you for the real thing and to give that full size satisfaction. I still find myself using the bullet from time to time and it’s a great starter but if your next model is definitely going to be a Rabbit then it is too small to start out at. Still remember if you’re letting your partner take charge a larger model can be painful in eager but inexperienced hands.

Discreteness of the Vibrator

Unlike a dildo a vibrator may make more noise than you, the more functionality it offers the louder it will typically be. This isn’t as true at the top end of the market but unless you want to spend £50+ on a sex toy only to find out it’s not for you stick to the cheaper units. A small 5 setting may mean you have to put on some music to get privacy at full throttle, a larger 7+ can mean late night use is totally out of the question. If you have thin walls always opt for a quieter vibrator.

Beyond merely sound if you go for a large sex toy like the Expanding Rampant Rabbit you’ll struggle to find a sock drawer big enough. Always check the measurements because the base may increase size making it hard to hide. Going a few inches smaller may mean the difference between hiding it in your socks and an awkward conversation with a parent or partner.

Waterproof Vibrators

If you are opting for a larger more noisy model then make sure you opt for a waterproof sex toy. While it’s always nice to have the option of using it in the shower the bath is where these things shine. Fully submerged the lower settings are typically completely muffled, at the higher end you can claim you were brushing your teeth for half an hour!
What Vibrator Do You Want?
Ultimately if you’re determined to have a Rampant Rabbit opt for a smaller model like the little shaking one or the slim silicone one. Avoid the rotating rabbit as it offers a completely different sensation and can take a while to get used to. There is no “Best Vibrator” each one offers different things for a different price.

If you’re only going to use it late at night (which is typically how it starts) get a small, discreet vibrator. If you have a little privacy during the day consider going for a full range model – just remember to start slow. Whatever you do don’t start out on a high end model, it’ll cost a fortune, you’ll take forever to get the hang of it and you’ll be disappointed by anything you spend less on.
