How to Choose the Best Vibrator

Here at Loving Joy we believe that vibrators are for everyone, and you should have the best vibrator for your own needs. Choosing a vibrator can be very difficult, so we have created a short guide to help you find the best vibrator for you, your partner, or for both of you. Before reading any more, if you are unsure about the what a vibrator is then take a quick look at our Beginners Guide to Vibrators here. Our beginners guide to vibrators will outline the different types of vibrators, materials and much more information for all your basic vibrator needs.

Now, we think that the best way to start is by asking yourself some questions about what you are going to use your vibrator for. Below are some of the popular questions that our customers have asked us in the past, which will help you make a decision on buying your first vibrator!

How are you going to use your new toy? Solo masturbation, foreplay or during sex with your partner?

There are many different vibrators on the market, many of which have been designed for different types of use, either by yourself in a solo masturbation session, or with your partner during foreplay, and even during sex.

If you are looking for a vibrator to use for solo masturbation then there are many different types that are specifically designed to bring you to climax. These include rabbit vibrators, bullet vibrators, and wand vibrators. You can find our guide to the best rabbit vibrator here, the best bullet vibrator here, and the best wand vibrators here. Each of these guides give you a little bit of information on what that type of vibrator is, and also what is our best one. One of the best vibrators for solo masturbation is by far the Loving Joy Power Bullet Vibrator.

Using a vibrator with your partner during foreplay can be great fun, and there are many vibrators that you can use for this, including bullet vibrators, remote controlled vibrators, and other clitoral vibrators. If you are looking for a vibrator to use with your partner for some foreplay we highly recommend the Loving Joy 10 Function Rechargeable Egg Vibrator. This egg shaped vibrator is great for foreplay as you can use it to massage your nipples and other erogenous zones to increase your, or your partners arousal. Furthermore, you can also let you partner control this vibrating egg with its remote that works up to 15 feet.

If you are looking for a vibrator that you can use with your partner during sex, or just foreplay then remote control vibrators are always good for this. To find out a bit more information about remote vibrators and also our best remote controlled sex toys then click here. Alternatively, wearable vibrators are also extremely popular as you or your partner can wear them during sex. These vibrators resemble a C-Shape and usually feature two motors, that vibrate to stimulate the clitoris and the G-Spot at the same time. If you are looking for a vibrator like this then we recommend the Loving Joy VERSA which is a bendable vibrator that you can bend into a C-Shape.

Do you want to use your vibrator on numerous erogenous zones, internally, externally or anally?

There are many different ways in which you can use a vibrator. Here are some of the different ways in which vibrators can be used:

  1. Clitoral stimulation – if you want a vibrator purely for clitoral stimulation then we recommend using a bullet vibrator, you can see our best bullet vibrators guide here, which will give you a bit more information on what a bullet vibrator is, as well as our most popular bullet vibrators.
  2. Internal Stimulation – Internal stimulation feels great, and using a vibrator that is specifically designed for this will take your orgasm to new levels. If you want a vibrator for internal stimulation then we recommend the Loving Joy Bully Boy, which is available in flesh and black.
  3. Dual Stimulation – These are some of the most popular types of vibrators and using these can lead to what is known as a blended orgasm. This is where you experience an internal and clitoral orgasm simultaneously. Rabbit vibrators are known for this, and we would highly recommend the Jessica Rabbit Ultimate Extra Vibrator, which is one of our global best selling rabbit vibrators.
  4. Anal Stimulation – There are many vibrators that are designed for this use, including the Loving Joy Bully Boys. However, our best anal vibrator is the Jessica Rabbit Double Bunny as it is designed to massage the clitoris, provide internal stimulation, and massage the anus as well.

How big do you want your vibrator?

Size is also extremely important when it comes to buying a vibrator. If you are new to sex toys then we highly recommend using a product that has a slimmer shaft, like the Slim Jessica Rabbit Vibrator; or even a vibrator that is designed for external use, like the Loving Joy 7 Speed Bullet Vibrator.

If you have used a vibrator before and are looking for a larger vibrator, then we suggest trying either the Jessica Rabbit Ultimate Extra, our largest rabbit vibrator. If you just want a very powerful vibrator specifically designed for clitoral stimulation then we highly recommend the Loving Joy VITA Wand Vibrator, which is our most powerful wand vibrator!

Do you have flatmates or other people in your house so will want to keep extra quiet?

In general vibrators are created to be as power as possible, whilst being as quiet as possible. That being said, there are some vibrators that are much quieter than others, allowing you to make the most out of your alone time without the feeling of waking up your flat mates. Loving Joy has developed several extremely quiet vibrators for this. By far the most popular one is the Loving Joy DUA Interchangeable Rabbit Vibrator with Wand Attachment. This has been one of our best vibrators ever since it was extremely well reviewed by the Good Housekeeping Tried and Tested Panel in 2018.

What material do you want your vibrator?

Plastic vibrators – These tend to be harder than lots of other vibrators, however this hardness allows for more direct, targeted stimulation, and for you to apply more pressure to your erogenous zones like the clitoris or the G-Spot. With these types of vibrators it is much more about the precision of vibration.

Jelly or rubber vibrators – These are a bit softer than plastic so they usually have a bit more flexibility, especially in the shaft. The jelly or rubber is usually made from skin safe TPE or TPR. You will commonly find this type of material in the majority of our Jessica Rabbit Range, this is because this material allows for the internal beads to move and be felt much better than other materials.

Silicone vibrators – Silicone is a very popular choice for more expensive vibrators. The main reason for this is that silicone is incredibly smooth to the touch, warms to body temperature reasonably quickly and is non-porous, making it completely body safe. When using a silicone toy do not use with silicone lubricant, as this can damage the product.

Do you want to be able to use your vibrator in the bath or shower?

Fancy a nice and relaxing bath or shower? Nothing is more relaxing than climaxing in an even wetter environment with a specifically designed vibrator to help you do so! You will find that vibrators are categorised into three different types of waterproof-ness: not waterproof; splash-proof; and submersible.

Vibrators that are not waterproof should not be taken in to the bath or shower. You will find that this doesn’t include many vibrators, as the majority of vibrators feature some sort of waterproof seal. However, always check the packaging on the product beforehand.

Splashproof vibrators usually mean that they cannot go under water, so you can use them in the shower. Vibrators that you can use in the shower include the Jessica Rabbit Original, and the Jessica Rabbit G-Spot Slim.

Submersible vibrators are ones that can fully go under water, so are great for the bath, and also fantastic for the shower. These include the Loving Joy Versa, and also the Loving Joy DUA. Both of which are fully submersible.

Remember to always check the product description, packaging, or contact us to confirm if a vibrator is waterproof or not. If you are looking for the best waterproof vibrator then take a look at our guide here.
