If you’re a newcomer to sex toys, choosing your first toy can be a little overwhelming, but we shall walk you through beginner-friendly options.
Whether you’re looking for a sex toy to use solo or something to supercharge hotness between you and your partner, a few toys are a great place to start. We’ve found three ideal sex toys for beginners based on popularity, customer reviews, and advice from s-experts. Without further adieu, here are the three sex toys that every beginner should try!
1. Magic Wand
Magic Wands are magical in more ways than one. They are simple to use and provide a powerful vibrating sensation that helps improve women's sexual experience by giving Magic Wand aficionados control over which sensations and how much sensation to add during solo or couples play routines.
Originally designed by Hitachi as a full body massager, the original Magic Wand quickly gained cult status with women in the US for its incredible stimulation of erogenous zones, especially the clitoris. We'll say it again; Magic Wands are supreme in providing clitoral stimulation. But they can be used to stimulate other erogenous zones. Many wands are wireless and rechargeable, eliminating the need to change their batteries. However, some wands do use regular batteries, so make sure to check the specifics before purchasing one. They usually feature silicone heads, making them comfortable and easy to clean. If you are looking for something that makes it easy to reach any part of your body, look for one with an adjustable head like the one here.
"This little toy comes with awesome power and flex to hit all the right spots. Both of us were amazed, that something so small would work so great this is a must-have for any couple to use in the bedroom. If you haven’t got this toy, buy one!" - Harpreet, March 18/2019
Magic Wands are excellent for either solo play or partner sex. They have several settings of vibration intensity. Lower settings are a natural starting point for beginners. We recommend starting at a lower setting to get acclimatized to the feeling and then increasing from there.
If you are unsure, it is a good idea to test out the vibration power on less sensitive areas like your breasts before moving to more sensitive areas. Start by turning your Magic Wand on (before contact with your body), and then place it on erogenous zones like the clitoris. It is as easy as that. Just turn the device on and put it on different areas of your body; the more sensitive the area, the more intense the experience.

2. Rabbit Vibrators
Rabbit vibrators are designed for simultaneous penetration and clitoral stimulation. Made from silicone, rabbits have a skin-like feel that makes penetration comfortable and natural. Rabbit vibrators are very easy to clean and maintain.
Similar to the Magic Wand, most rabbit vibrators come with multiple vibration settings. When you first start using your rabbit vibrator, test the vibration setting on less sensitive areas like the breasts or nipples. This will give you a feel for the vibration's intensity and make it easier to pick a setting with the perfect intensity. When you're ready, insert the shaft into the vagina. Once the vibrator is inserted, the smaller part of the vibrator (with the rabbit ears) should be on or near the clitoris. You'll find that dual vibrations feel fabulous inside and on your clit. Rabbit vibrators are super popular for solo play but can also be used during partner sex and foreplay.
"When I first opened it I thought it might be a bit thick for me - since it was my first time using anything thicker than a couple fingers - but I used it with some lube and it was no problem. The vibrations are powerful enough and it's nice to have different settings. The material feels very soft and flexible. Overall, I’m pretty happy with it." - Lovetreats Customer, April 2/2021
Because of their dual stimulation design, Rabbit Vibrators are a popular choice for beginners, so don’t be afraid to try one out. If you want to ease into the experience, try inserting the vibrator only part of the way and then stimulating your clitoris with your hand. You can also try placing the more prominent end on your clitoris to get used to the vibration before trying the double combination.

3. Clitoral Vibrator
Clitoral stimulators are a little different from regular vibrators because they are meant to simulate the feeling of oral sex. The little circle cup delivers pulsing air pumps that stimulate the clitoris and other parts of the vagina. These air pulsations mimic the feeling of oral sex.
Similar to regular vibrators, there are multiple settings to help control the intensity. The simplest way to get started with a clitoral vibrator is to start at its lowest setting and then place the cup on the clitoris. From there, increase power as appropriate for you. Once the cup is on the clitoris, it draws the clitoris in to encourage blood flow to the area, which increases sensitivity. The vibrator then uses sound waves or air to create a pulsing sensation to stimulate the sensitive area further. This increases the likelihood of orgasm as well as the intensity of orgasm.
"This toy brings me to that next level...nay...out of this UNIVERSE. It will literally make your body feel like it's melting." - Lovetreats Customer, March 23/2019
Many women struggle to orgasm with just vaginal penetration, so having a toy like this 'handy' will help solve that problem. Clitoral stimulators are popular options to use alone during masturbation because they are very intense and are the closest feeling to real oral sex. They are also great when used with a partner.
