A GUIDE TO USING YOUR VIBE

Get The Most Out Of Your Favourite Sex Toy

Many a woman would love to know more about a Vibrator but finds it a tad awkward asking the girls over lunch what she is supposed to do with her new battery-powered pal. So let us step in and show you how to get the most out of your new vibrator...

Making Quality Sexy-Time

First of all, the idea is for this to be Quality Time, so set aside an hour or so where you won't be disturbed or discovered! This sort of play can't be enjoyed fully if rushed, or interrupted.

Wash your hands, unpack your vibrator and study it. Insert the batteries, or plug the vibrator in to charge. Once ready, apply some quality lube to you and  your vibrator, and you're good for the next step. 

Read all the included instructions, e.g. - how to clean your toy, whether it is waterproof, how the settings work, etc. Some vibes have fewer buttons, and you need to know whether to apply a "long press" or a "short press" for the results you are after. 

Set the Mood

To set the mood, lay aside some quiet time for yourself, make yourself comfortable and double-check you won’t be interrupted. Then bring on any other aids that might help you create a little erotica, Pictures, books, sexy lingerie, watch a movie or whatever lights your fire.

Feel the Vibration

Switch your vibrator on and gently run it along your arm, across your tummy, and up your leg - feel the vibrations. If it has different settings, test how each feels on your skin. Some parts of your body are more sensitive than others, so try it in different areas. Take your time. Get to know the various settings and speeds of your vibrator and what they feel like.

It may have a tapered area and a flatter one. Each gives off a different sensation, so experiment with how they feel on the different parts of your body.

Some women prefer strong, fast vibrations, while others only climax after a slow, gentle buildup. You’ll get to know your body over time, but initially, we suggest you just try out the different options and note their effects.

When you're ready, direct the vibrator towards your genitals. You might want to start with your underwear on or even be fully clothed, to test the strength of the different vibrations. If the lowest setting still feels too powerful, placing a towel between the vibrator and your clitoris might be the answer.

Run it along the inside of your thighs and press it against your labia. Allow the different sensations to heat you up. Keep moving it around. If you have a G-Spot- or Rabbit vibrator you can also use it externally too, depending on your mood. Explore all your erogenous zones with your vibrator, and it could soon become your favourite sex toy.

Many women find that some of the settings on their vibrators are great for external use but not so for internal, and vice-versa. Toy with the settings to discover which you prefer. Remember: you don’t have to have an orgasm the first time you use it. You’re still familiarising yourself with it. We strongly recommend you lube up on the vibrator and your genitalia to make things way more successful. Remember to ensure your lube is compatible with your make of toy.

Power Hour

Different vibrators have different strokes and strengths. Small bullet vibrators tend to work on button- or small batteries and thus do not always give prolonged powerful vibrations.

However, because most vibes are tapered and all the vibration is targeted on one area – usually your clitoris – they can still have powerful effects. Try the different vibration settings to find the one(s) you prefer.

Remember, what feels like a light vibration on your hand may feel quite the opposite when pressed against your bits. Many women like to start with a lighter setting and then notch it up as they get more turned on. Experimenting will help you find the perfect speed and timing.

Bring a Friend

If you have a partner, invite them to take charge of your vibrator and see if they can discover a trick you haven’t. Above all, have fun. Your vibrator is meant to please you, and it will do just that if you relax and let it.
