How to Choose a Vibrator Vibrators come in many shapes and sizes, each with their own pros and
cons. Choosing the vibrator that's right for you is part process of
elimination and part super fun homework assignment. Consider these
questions when choosing your first or your twenty-first vibrator.
Do you want a battery powered or electric vibrator?
Are you looking for a vibrator for penetration or clitoral stimulation?
What kind of vibration are you looking for?
What material should your vibrator be made from?
How loud is your vibrator?
Do you want a vibrator for you, your partner, or both of you?

Choosing a vibrator material Whether it's a hard plastic vibrator, silicone rubber vibrator, plain rubber vibrator, or the new elastomer material vibrator,
choosing the right vibe can be about finding a material that works for
you. While many people don't react to less expensive rubbers, these

or if you're concerned about what you put in and on your body, you
might want to read up on our different sex toy materials and be sure
you're using a toy that you can feel good about after it stops buzzing.
