If you’re a newcomer to sex toys, it can be a little overwhelming and hard to choose your first toy. There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to choosing a sex toy and if it’s your first time exploring them, it can be hard to know which one will work the best for you, or you and your partner.
Whether you’re looking for a sex toy to use solo or something to spice things up with you and your partner, there are a few toys that are a great place to start. We’ve found the three best sex toys for beginners based on popularity, customer reviews, and advice from sex experts. Without further adieu here are the three sex toys that every beginner should try!
1. Magic Wand
As the name suggests, magic wands can be extremely magical. They are very simple to use and provide a powerful vibrating sensation that helps improve the sexual experience by providing added sensation. Many wands are wireless and rechargeable which is convenient because you don’t need to change the batteries, however, there are some that use regular batteries so make sure to check the specifics before purchasing one. You can usually find them made with different types of material including plastic and silicone, many times it is a combination of both. 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
This toy can be used alone while masturbating or during partner sex. Magic wands typically have multiple settings of vibration intensity which makes them perfect for beginners. We recommend starting at a lower setting to get used to the feeling and then increasing from there. The easiest way to start using a magic wand is by turning it on and placing it on sensitive areas like the clitoris to increase stimulation. It is a good idea to test out the vibration power on less sensitive areas like the breasts before moving to more sensitive areas like the clitoris to make sure the vibration isn’t too powerful. It is really as easy as that. Just turn the device on and place it on different areas of your body, the more sensitive the area, the more intense the experience.
2. Rabbit Vibrators
When it comes to vibrators there is a ton of different options, all meant to provide different stimulation. Rabbit vibrators are meant for penetration and clitoral stimulation which makes them very popular. They are usually made from plastic and silicone. The silicone creates a skin-like feel that makes penetration very comfortable and natural. Both silicone and plastics 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 out the vibration setting on less sensitive areas like the breasts or nipples. This will help you get a feel for the vibration and pick a setting that is the perfect intensity. When you’re ready, use the large end and insert it into the vagina. Once the vibrator is inserted, the smaller part of the vibrator should be on or near the clitoris. The vibrating feels amazing inside and on your clit. Rabbit vibrators are very popular for masturbation purposes, 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
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 larger end on your clitoris to get used to the vibration before trying the double combination. Rabbit vibrators are a very popular choice amongst beginners so don’t be afraid to dive in a try one out.
3. Clitoral Vibrator
As we mentioned earlier, when it comes to vibrators there are a ton of different kinds. Another popular kind of vibrator is the clitoral stimulator vibrator. These vibrators 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 are meant to stimulate the clitoris and other parts of the vagina and mimic the feeling of oral sex.
The most simple way to get started with a clitoral vibrator is by placing the cup on the clitoris. Similar to regular vibrators there are multiple settings to help control the intensity. 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 further stimulate the sensitive area. This helps increase the chance of orgasm as well as increase 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
These vibrators 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. Many women struggle to orgasm with just vaginal penetration so having a toy like this handy will certainly help solve that problem.
When it comes to sex toys there is always something for everyone, the key is to not be intimidated. Find something you think you might like and don’t be afraid to give it a try. Get creative and try new things, there is no right or wrong way to use these products as long as you or you and your partner are safe and enjoying them, you’re using them perfectly!
