9 Tips for Getting the Best from your Vibrator

9 tips for getting the best from your vibrator

Figuring out how to use a vibrator can be a little overwhelming, particularly when you’re searching for your very first sex toy. Should you get that slightly intimidating looking rabbit vibrator or that tiny little bullet vibrator?

Buying a sex toy for the first time is an exciting and freeing experience. You are investing in pleasure and yourself, so you want to make sure you do it the right way. Set aside the preconceived notions, myths, taboos, and guilt surrounding pleasure, and you are ready to embark on your adventure of a lifetime.

 

If you’re a first-timer, here’s how to use your vibrator along with some suggestions for the best ones to start your sexy adventure.

1. Set the mood

If you’re having a hard time getting in the mood, a little ambiance goes a long way.

Plan your sexperience with a date night for yourself, take a bath, light some candles, and even turn on some relaxing music. Relaxation and arousal are essential to experiencing pleasure, and if your body is prepared, [your] vibrator is charged, and your mind is at ease, pleasure will come naturally.

 

Try: The Lelo Smart Wand which has a powerful vibration that you can use on the muscles all over your body to release tension during a full-body self-massage before you use it to get down.

2. Make sure your vibrator is juiced up

Nothing kills the mood like a dead battery. 

If battery-operated, make sure to use fresh batteries. Don't pull the ones from your remote as they aren't strong enough. If it’s a rechargeable vibe, make sure it’s fully charged. You don't want the disappointment of being so close to orgasm only to have your toy die on you.

Try: The Double Love by Satisfyer is a fantastic remote vibrator that makes charging easy with its design. Plus, you can use it either with the wireless remote control or as a standalone!

3. Take your time

It’s understandable to feel a little performance anxiety even when you’re going solo, but don't be afraid to go slow and figure out what feels good to you. This isn’t a race, sometimes when we go too quickly, especially when pleasure is involved, we miss the beauty of the process.

Try: The Grand Bullet by LeWand is a USB rechargeable vibe that boasts an extra-long battery life, so you can take all the time you need.

4. Explore your body

You can have all the right materials, but it can be hard to get started if you don’t know what you like! If you haven’t explored your body and the sensations that turn you on, you’ll have some difficulty picking the right product. Spend some time navigating the pleasure points of your body. Once you’ve established what feels good, [whether it's] internal stimulation, external stimulation, or even both, you are ready to start the process of your pleasure product purchase.

Try: The PicoBong Transformer by Lelo is a flexible vibe that lets you change the shape of the toy to find what works best for your anatomy.

5. Variety is key

Don’t forget that most vibrators come with multiple settings and that they might feel extra good to you in certain contexts — but you’ll only know if you try.

 

Play around with different techniques, settings, and positions. The same vibrator may feel different when you are lying on your stomach versus when you are lying on your back. Get creative. This is your time.

Try: The Mono Flex by Satisfyer is a waterproof rechargeable vibrator but with a whopping 50 vibration patterns. How’s that for variety?

6. Add a little something extra

The fun isn’t just in the sex toys, there are gels and lubes that can help enhance your pleasure. These enhancers can be used to add extra sensation to playtime. Often a gel and can be applied directly to your clitoris, enhancers encourage more blood flow to the area, making you more sensitive, and [they] can have warming, cooling, and even tingly effects.

Try: A stimulating sensual oil that helps with increased sensation for a more intense experience.

7. Remember what the real goal is

It’s good to be goal oriented, but in this case, don’t get too stressed about the big O. Focus on having a good time instead, and remind yourself that there’s no “right” way to do it.

Don’t get discouraged. It’s a new experience and can take a few times getting used to. Have patience and take your time. You goal isn’t just an orgasm, your goal is also pleasure.

 

Try: The Sila Clitoris Sucker by Lelo will remind you to have fun with it.

8. Keep it clean

We’re talking literally here: Keep your vibrators and sex toys clean. You’ve invested in a product and yourself, so you want to make sure that product lasts. Cleaning your product is key to a long toy life and a happy body.

9. Give your vibe a home

Don’t just toss your sex toys under your bed when they’re not in use. It’s important to have a designated, clean place to store them. W]ash your toys before and after use. Now, that is ideal, and we often get caught up in the moment and don’t have time to clean beforehand; therefore, just make sure once playtime is done, you clean your toy with your cleaner and keep it in a safe spot away from the sun, dust, and other toys.

NOW GO AND HAVE FUN!
