Different styles of vibrators to choose from

Choosing the right vibrator will always be primarily about personal preferences. But there are some questions you can ask yourself before you choose a vibrator that will help reduce the risk of choosing one that you’ll use once and then will forever collect dust in your sock drawer:

  1. How do you want to use your vibrator: external clitoral stimulation, penetration, or both?
  2. What should your vibrator be made out of, and what safety concerns are there about materials?
  3. How strong a vibrator should you buy: mild to super strong, single speed or variable?
  4. How much do you want to spend on a vibrator: $5 or $500, the selection is out there for every budget?
  5. What do you want your vibrator to look like?

As you click through the pages below you’ll see lots of examples of vibrators, and get tips on things to think about when buying a vibrator.
