How to Use a Vibrator

Whether yours is clitoral or classic, rabbit or remote control, these are our top recs to help you maximise your vibration elation.

Much like there is no one type of vibrator, there is no one way to use them. Check the rest of our advice for more specific advice on using clitoral vibrators, bullet vibrators, rabbit vibrators and more.

But you need to start at the beginning, so read on for our best all-around advice that'll help you get the most out of your favourite vibe, no matter what shape and size.

Use the right lube

You can use vibes all over your body, and most of those places do not self-lubricate (it's a skill that only the vagina really excels at). With that in mind, it's important to always use lube and further to use the correct one for what kind of vibrator you plan to play with.

“The more lubed up you and the toy is, the easier it is (at least for me) to find that 'sweet' spot where my clitoris likes it most.” - laluz

The biggest factors in determining what kind of lube you can use are what the toy is made of and where you intend to use it. Water-based lubricant is compatible with absolutely every kind of sex toy and comes in anal varieties for toys going in your backdoor.

Explore the settings first

Some vibrators have a lot of buttons. With functions like warming and thrusting becoming common alongside vibration, getting busy with your new vibe can get kind of complex.

“These different settings enable her to change things up, and often when she's near to climax she will change the setting, which will then finish her off and entice a huge orgasm, which has her shaking.” - His Point Of View

To avoid any embarrassing (and possibly painful) mishaps, take a minute to test-drive all the buttons and switches before your start playing for real. You can even use it as a kind of foreplay - just imagine those functions getting to work on your sensitive spots while you watch what your toy can do.
