Your First Vibrator: A Buying Guide

What type of vibrator do you like?

Find a vibrator type that appeals to your senses.

Raunchy Republic offers a multitude of vibrators. If you are a first time vibe-buyer or user this can be a bit daunting. At the Raunchy Republic store vibrators are broken down into seven categories. Here, I will go into more detail about these different kinds of vibrators to help you find your vibe, the one that is just right for your first time.

“Challenging” Vibrators
These guys are called challenging for two main reasons

  1. They are “realistic” in that they look like cocks, complete with veins and all.
  2. They are also “unrealistic” in that they are rather large…the biggest one measuring at 12 inches.

These are also softer vibes, which give a softer stimulation than the intense stimulation of hard plastic vibes. If a realistic looking cock is part of your fantasies, this vibe is right up your alley.

Clitoral Massagers
Yes, all vibrators are clitoral massagers but these are sure to get that job done right. With pointed tips and and special small sizes to perfectly perch on your clit, these are made for concentrated clit-stimulation. These are all hard plastic vibes, and if intense clit-stimulation is what you are looking for, hard plastic is the way to go. I’ve heard it said that there is nothing better than your own hand, but these direct-clit vibes give righty a run for her money.

G-Spot Vibrators
Use these to tickle that hard-to-reach-yourself hot spot. These toys can also be used for men as well to find the prostate, or P-Spot. If you’ve never found your respective G or P spot, I cannot urge you enough to purchase one of these toys to go “discover yourself.” A G-Spot Vibe is a smart buy because it can be used for G stimulation but also for outer clit-stimulation as well.

Mini Vibrators
Mini and Bullet vibes are great to bring out during intercourse. They are small and discreet so they don’t really get in the way. If you are buying a vibe to use solely during sex in order to achieve orgasm, these are a great buy. Also these make great first-time-vibe gifts, they are small and cute, very non-threatening.

Rabbit Vibrators
These are also known as dual action vibes: they provide stimulation to both the G-spot and the clit. The Rabbit is the most popular of these, maybe because of the toy’s stint on Sex and the City, but also because it is that good. The Rabbit brings alot of stimulation without you needing to do much work, and it is intense. When shopping keep in mind the size of the shaft, how much penetration are you comfortable with? If double stimulation is your thing then this is the vibe for you, these also make a nice “special occasion” vibe for when you are in the mood for a little extra.

Remote Controlled Vibrators
To me there are two really fun ways to use these guys. One is for playful use outside of the bedroom. Maybe you put the vibe in your undies while you hang out for a night of watching movies with your honey or perhaps you dare to use it out in public. Either way, the knee-weakening vibes sent by your lover will make for an interesting night. For this type of play you will need a wireless remote controlled vibe. This type of vibe is also a ton of fun for bedroom sessions, all during foreplay your partner can send you vibes with the touch of a button. This is a perfect vibrator for partner-play.

Waterproof Vibrators
Sometimes there is nothing hotter than getting dirty in the shower or bath. If you regularly masturbate in the tub or shower (or if that sounds good to you) this type of vibe is for you.
