How to use a vibrator properly

Here are a few tips on how to use a vibrator to increase sexual pleasure.

Using a vibrator after becoming accustomed to manual stimulation is like switching from driving a manual to an automatic car: You don't have to work as hard and you don't stall as often, so you can relax and enjoy the ride.


If you haven't experienced orgasm yet, a vibrator might do the trick to get you over the top.

Choosing the right one

Different vibrators provide different stimulation, so experiment and choose your favorite.
 

  • Electric vs. battery: Battery-powered vibrators offer more freedom of movement, while electric ones last longer.
  • Clitoral vibes: Smaller heads deliver more focused clitoral stimulation, and larger heads spread the vibrations out.
  • G-spot stimulation: Choose a curved, firm vibe for effective G-spot massage.

Position yourself

  • Lay on your back with vibrator in hand, positioned on your clitoris.
  • For variation, try lying on your vibrator, clenching it between your legs, or propping it against your body.
  • More ideas: Stand up, lie in the bath (waterproof, battery-powered only), or squat.
  • Put a towel or cloth between your clit and the vibrator to ease yourself into the action.

Ready, set, go

  • Turn your vibrator on and start by running it all over your body.
  • When you're ready, put a little lube on your clitoris and near your vaginal opening. Drop the tube of lube into a glass of hot water first if you want it warmed up.
  • For multi-speed vibrators, start on low and work your way up.
  • Breathe deeply. Feel free to fantasise, read erotica, or watch a video while using your vibe.

Find the spot

  • Vary the speed, motion, and position of the vibrator to keep things interesting. As you get close to orgasm, back off to stay on the delicious edge a while longer.
  • Enjoy rocking your pelvis while placing a long, slim vibrator into your vagina.
  • Try a curved vibrator, face up, to massage your G-spot during insertion.

Playing with your partner

Vibrators are an addition to, not a replacement for, partner sex. Ask your lover to join you sometime!

Show your partner how you like it done. Masturbation for a partner can be very intimate and sexy, too. If your partner is open to it, try using a slender vibe with a flared base to stimulate a male partner's prostate.
