How to Choose a Sex Toy

Need a little help deciding which vibrator to buy?

The truly amazing array of vibrator styles, sizes, and materials can be both inspiring and a little daunting. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a partner, answering these few simple questions can help cut through the information overload and guarantee a delightful spin with your new sex toy.

 

Are you looking for
a vibrator that...
Then you might like...Babeland
Favorite

...is for clitoral
stimulation
?

Just about anything that vibrates feels good on or around the clitoris. Smaller clitoral vibrators like the powerful, waterproof, and rechargeable Jimmyjane Form 2, the bestselling Laya Spot, or the Iconic Pocket are easy to use and stronger vibrators like the Hitachi Magic Wand vibrator will help you come quickly.

...will put you in touch
with your G-spot?

The Babeland Orchid G wins rave reviews, as does the silicone Gigi 2 vibrator and Jimmyjane Form 6. Look for vibrators with a curve toward the tip for exquisite G-spot stimulation.

 

...is so quiet your
roommate won't hear it?

For a whisper-quiet battery vibrator, try the Minna Ola, Je Joue Mimi, or Ocean Mini Vibe.

...gives your hand a
little extra oomph?

The Hello Touch, Aries Fukuoku, and Ophoria Finger Vibe are tiny vibrators that slide right over your finger.

...is so discreet that
airport security won't
know what it is?

The Kandi Kisses vibrator fools everybody, as does the Ducky and the USB-rechargeable Mia.

...can be used for clitoral
or G-spot stimulation...
or both?

Check out the long and sleek Slimlines and the Gigi 2.

For a vibrator that stimulates both pleasure points at once, try the Rabbit Habit, or the rechargeable Soraya.

  

...can be worn while you're
fucking, so your hands are
free
to seek other pleasures?

Consider the innovative couple's vibrator designed to be worn during sexual intercourse: We-Vibe 4. Or try a vibrating cock ring like the Duet Cock Ring.

 

...can be worn by your
lover, but gets you both
off during penetrative sex?

Slip an Iconic Ring, Wave Rider, or rechargeable Tor cock ring over your favorite penis or dildo; the vibrator is strategically placed to hit your clitoris during penetration.

...is so wonderfully intense,
you'll get off in seconds?

The Hitachi Magic Wand vibrator packs a powerful punch, which is great when you want to get off quickly or if you're just learning how to orgasm. For a cordless, battery-operated model, try the bestselling Mystic Wand (and add the Mystic Wand Attachment for some added G-spot fun!).

...features more subtle vibrations for the
sensitive clit?

The My Secret Vibe is a waterproof vibe with a soft velvety coating, which is easy to clean and transmits vibrations beautifully. For an affordable, tiny, attractive vibe, carry around the Babeland Buzz.

 

...is great for sex or
masturbation in the bath
or shower?

The Blueberry Buzz, RO-80mm bullet vibrator, We-Vibe 4, and the Je Joue Mio will all make quite the splash.

...is an international
celebrity?

That would be the Rabbit Habit, made famous on Sex and the City and the new plaything of many a celebrity (Eva Longoria, for example). Kate Moss and other celebrities are also fans of the Jimmyjane and Lelo vibes.

...is so stylish, your
girlfriends will covet it?

The Siri is sleek, rechargeable, and targeted for clitoral vibration. For true luxury, take a gander at the Jimmyjane Little Platinum or the gorgeous Jimmyjane Ultimate Members Set of 6.

...makes a great gift?

They all do, but we often recommend the Orgasm in a Box (Hers) or Orgasm in a Box (His). Or, for a more deluxe delight, give her the ever-popular (and money-saving) Bunny Love Kit.

 

Vibrator Tips

Most vibrators are built to provide clitoral stimulation externally — that's where vibration feels the best and is most likely to prove orgasmic.

If you've never used a vibrator before, be prepared to experiment! Pick a toy with variable speeds so you can play around until you discover just what amount of vibration starts your motor. After some initial investigation, you'll be ready to hone in on your vibrating dream date.
