How to choose a vibrator – PART 3

Whether you are buying your first vibrator or are an experienced user, here are some final points to consider when choosing a vibrator:

  • Size: Does size matter? Um…YES! If the vibrator is too big that it makes you or your partner uncomfortable, then it’s not for you. Do you want something that’s small enough to carry in your purse or travel with like the Leaf Spirit?
  • Power: How many speeds or pulse patterns do you want?  Do you enjoy a steady pulse or do you like to mix it up?
  • Batteries: Many luxury vibrators like the Minna Ola are now rechargeable so you don’t have to worry about running out of batteries or your vibrator running out of juice. Convenience is key and green is sexy. Rechargeable vibrators are more expensive than battery operated vibrators, but think how much you will be saving.
  • Volume: No one wants a loud vibrator. It’s not only distracting, but your roommate or children might hear. Luckily, quality vibrators are all virtually silent.
  • Material: Many sex toys are made with chemicals that you wouldn’t want inside your body, like phthalates. Phthalates are chemicals used to soften PVC rubber. Luxury vibrators are made without phthalates and are body-safe. Materials include silicone, metal, thermoplastic elastomer/TPE  (a soft and stretchy compound used in medical devices and not as durable as silicone) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene /ABS (a common thermoplastic that is used in many consumer goods-not as soft as silicone or TPE).

Lastly, don’t forget to clean your new vibrator before AND after each use with sex toy cleaner (Renew Toy Cleaner is an excellent organic sex toy cleaner).

So many options….so little time. Let the games begin!!
