Vibrators are one of the many ways you can achieve sexual empowerment and get in tune with your body. However, vibrators are not one-size-fits-all. Whether you’re looking to dip your toes into the realm of sex toys, want to expand your growing collection, or you’re just curious to see what’s out there — I’ve got you covered. Here are nine vibrators for beginners that can help you take some time to pleasure yourself and give in to your desires. 

SONA 2 Cruise

“Women, you are worth your pleasure, so go out there and get it,” says Dr. Brandye Manigat, a certified OB-GYN and pleasure coach who helps women awaken their inner “sexual goddess.” She tells Her Campus, “It’s important to find the right toy because there’s so many options out there. You need to ask yourself what you’re trying to feel,” she explains. 

Lelo’s sex toys are Manigat’s top choice. “I just love the way they construct their products,” she says. The SONA™ 2 Cruise vibrator is made of silky soft silicone that adds to the product’s allure, and it even won a design award. The material helps absorb and transmit waves back into your body to help your clitoris achieve a gentle, yet deep sensation.

There are 12 preset settings, but that's not even its greatest selling point — there’s cruise control, too. This setting automatically accelerates the intensity of the vibrator the harder you press it against your skin. Feel free to jazz up your nightly bath with this waterproof massager.

Magic Wand Rechargeable

This personal massager has been satisfying people for the last 50 years. Its newest version is cordless and rechargeable, with four vibration patterns and four levels of intensity. The flat silicone head allows for vibrations to be felt easily, even if used over your underwear. Even though the product is considered bulkier when compared to other smaller vibrators, it makes a great companion for beginners — there’s no hassle of figuring out where your clit is.

“Play around with it a little bit, try it on your arm to see how it feels,” Manigat recommends. Just remember: don’t take it in your shower, because the Magic Wand isn’t waterproof.

Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation

The Satisfyer Pro 2 uses air pulse technology, meaning it uses both airwaves and direct contact to stimulate your clit. The massager carries 11 settings and has a quiet motor, making it perfect for discreet use. If you’re looking for a more affordable clitoral stimulator, this vibrator is the way to go. Like other more expensive products from this category, you can also use this product underwater.

If you’re a beginner, this is especially great for you, as it’s affordable and easy to use!

Lelo GIGI 2

This G-spot massager will have you shivering in your sheets. The slightly curved, flattened tip accentuates your G-spot massage to help you achieve a more satisfying and intense climax. There are eight different pleasure settings and the vibrations are “whisper-soft” making it the perfect toy for quiet use (super important for life with roommates).

Like other Lelo products, this toy is also waterproof, so grab it the next time you take a shower. Keep in mind, though, that water washes off your body’s natural lubricant — so I suggest you use an artificial lubricant in this case.

Crave Vesper

This discreet vibrator also doubles as a stylish necklace, and comes in silver, rose gold, or 24 karat gold plating. Though this accessory is for external use only and only has four presets, its sleek style and soundless vibrations make for the perfect intro vibrator. You can even customize this vibrator with an engraving for yourself or a loved one!

Enby Wild Flower

Enby is the first gender-neutral vibrator to ever exist. This inclusive massager can be used in a harness, rubbed on your private parts, and even placed between two bodies to enhance stimulation between couples. The product's sleek, malleable design and five patterns of vibration make it a great sex toy for everyone. This massager is also splash-proof, so it's super easy to clean.

LOVENSE Lush Bullet Vibrator

This bullet vibrator is great for couples, especially during times when you can’t get too close. The massager is controlled through an app that acts like a remote and gives you access to 10 different pleasure patterns.

Since its vibrations are silent, feel free to wear it under your panties — or even test it out in public, if you’re into that. Your significant other can easily control the device from anywhere with its wireless connectivity. The product can also be used for solo play if you'd prefer some alone time.

Tracy’s Dog Rabbit Vibrator

This affordable vibrator is great for achieving both vaginal and clitoral stimulation. “There’s pleasure points located deep inside your vagina that are really hard to get to and vibrators can really help with that,” says Manigat. The Rabbit Vibrator hits not just the G-spot, but also the A-spot which is located even further away, so it’s harder to identify and reach. There are also 15 different vibration modes with the added benefit of waterproof functionality. Talk about a bang for your buck!

Fifty Shades Freed Deep Inside Wave Vibrator        

If you were ever a fan of the 50 Shades of Grey book series or the movie, you’ll want to purchase this vibrator. Like its namesake, this vibrator will stimulate spots deep inside of you while thinking about Christian Grey. The pleasure toy is waterproof and comes with a beautiful design boasting the “Freed” logo. The product also comes with a storage bag, making it the perfect travel companion.

If you're brand new to sex toys, know that vibrators can be one of the many ways to get to know your body more intimately (and get the pleasure you deserve!). Regardless of the product you choose, Manigan says, "Make sure to use a lubricant and clean your product after use!” With all of the above options at your disposal, I hope you have some safe and consensual fun.
