Have fun! Toy Buying FYI
A couple of quick things to remember when buying a toy. Every woman’s body is different so a toy recommended by a friend may work wonderfully or perhaps is just OK for you. Be prepared to experiment a little. Always use lube with a toy. Lube makes the experience so much more pleasurable by allowing the toy to glide more smoothly. We recommend buying a good book to learn more. They don’t teach you this stuff at school or in the Girl Guides. Most of us have to learn this for ourselves. “Tickle Your Fancy” by Dr Sadie Allison is a good example of a great starter book; it’s an inexpensive, quick and informative read providing benefits that will last a lifetime. We find that most women end up getting a few different toys over time to suit how their body feels at that moment and to keep things interesting, so have fun experimenting.
Vibe Testing Tip
If you are in a store and wonder how to test a vibrator for clitoral stimulation, turn it on and test the vibrations by holding it against the tip of your ear lobe. Your ear lobe has lots of nerve endings making it highly sensitive, though still not as many as your clitoris....
The type of vibrator you buy depends on what you want it to do, here’s how we categorize them;
Bullets & Egg Vibes
These are amongs the simplest toys, usually only one speed and for external use they make great first time vibes.
External vibes are usually the best way to begin. Vibes such as Laya or, Nea, or any of the bullets are a great way to start for self stimulation or to introduce a toy to your partner. If it's a gift, Nea is a beautiful vibe that any woman would want. Always use lube with a toy, water based Liquid Silk is excellent to get you started. You can also use a warming gel such as Flower Balm to heighten the experience even more. Always stimulate the area around your clitoris first before you gently slide the vibe onto your clitoris (C-spot).
Most internal vibes can be used as external ones also. Some women like the feeling of fullness that a vibe such as Liv, Stranger or Elise can offer, when it is inserted into the vagina after stimulating the clitoris first. Other women looking for G-spot stimulation may require a vibe with a curved body or an angled head such as Little Paul or G-Swirl. The choice is yours, just remember every woman’s body is different so experimentation is key to finding what is right for you.
These vibes can multi-task. Examples of dual action vibes include the Rabbit Habit made famous by Sex and The City and Rabbit Pearl. The pearls on these vibes stimulate the entrance to the vagina while the little bunny ears delight your clitroris.
Couples vibes are made for sharing, they start with the simple one use vibrating rings to the rechargeable Canadian designed We-Vibe, which is one of our best sellers, it looks odd but it really works.
These toys are for women who have some experience in using pleasure toys and know what their body responds to best. If you are looking for something a little different these toys are a teriffic option for you to explore and includes the Hitachi Magic Wand which is the most powerful vibrator available.
