So, we’ve put together a list of the best toys for beginners to make choosing your first toy easy and fun.

Classic Vibrators

For most beginners, classic vibrators are a great place to start your toy collection. They’re designed in a phallic shape and can be used for external clitoral stimulation, but are typically used for insertion. While many classic vibrators are engineered with all sorts of bells and whistles, the best design for beginners are vibes that are multispeed with a twist-base operation. They deliver sheet-clutching pleasure, but are easy to use.

Rabbit Vibrators

Rabbit vibrators are the most famous vibes in the world, thanks to its appearance on the popular TV show, “Sex and the City.” The sexually repressed character, Charlotte, became liberated after trying a rabbit vibrator for the first time. In fact, she enjoyed the Rabbit vibe so much, she refused to leave her bedroom! “Sex and the City” inspired millions of women to purchase a rabbit vibrator of their own and experience the same new-found sexual freedom that Charlotte did.

Rabbit vibes come in a wide variety of styles, but they all share a similar design – a clitoral stimulator branches off from the main shaft like two bunny “ears,” which provides simultaneous internal and clitoral stimulation. Some rabbit vibrators have additional features, such as a thrusting motor that makes the shaft’s tip spin, rock or thrust upward to mimic intercourse. This keeps the vibe in place once inserted, while maintaining clitoral stimulation.

They’re extremely discrete and affordable for first-time toy buyers. Bullet vibes are available in many cutting edge designs with different speeds and vibrating patterns, which are easy for new users to operate.

Pocket Rockets

Pocket Rockets are simple for beginners to use, and one of the most popular small vibrators on the market. They’re so discreet that they resemble a small pocket flashlight more than a sex toy, and are designed for direct clitoral stimulation. While they’re tiny in size, they come in a wide variety of revolutionary shapes, from a cup that surrounds the clitoris to a simply designed pointed tip. They’re typically bigger than bullet vibrators and contain larger motors, making them much more powerful. Beginners love the multiple speed selections that Pocket Rockets offer.

Magic Wands

Back in the day, these vibrators were marketed as tools to relieve neck and back pains. But when it was discovered that these wands actually make powerful clitoral stimulators, sales of wands went through the roof! Today, wand vibrators offer the most intense stimulation of all vibrators. They’re typically designed with a large handle that’s topped with a large head, which contains an ultra strong vibrating motor that delivers the most powerful vibrations of any sex toy. In fact, some beginners might find the super vibrations of the Magic Wand too intense. In that case, it’s best to purchase a Bullet or Classic vibrator, and then move to a wand when you feel ready.
