A Safe Space for You and Your Vagina

First Time Vibes

June 02, 2021

New to the magical world of vibrators? Then you’ve probably got a few questions. Thankfully, we have answers (and a few pointers). Keep reading for an unofficial guide for the first time viber. Rest assured, the only emotion you’ll be feeling after your first vibe session (other than pure bliss) is annoyance that you didn’t start sooner.

How to Hold Your Vibrator

It really comes to what feels natural to you. For example, with rabbit or wand vibrators, there is usually a long shaft that you can easily grip onto, whereas for bullet vibrators it’s common to hold them between your thumb and forefinger. But honestly, there’s no wrong way to hold your vibrator. Once you’ve got a firm grip on it, it’s go time. Move it up, down, left, right, in a circular motion, or even place it in your underwear for a hands-free experience. You do you!

Lube + Vibrator = The Duo You Didn’t Know You Needed

OK so if you know anything about us, you’ll know we’re HUGE fans of lady lube. Why? Well, a number of reasons really but one main reason is its versatility. Sure, lubricant can transform sex with your partner from good to mind-blowing, but it can also seriously improve a solo vibe session. Trust us when we say that adding a drop or two of lubricant to your vibrator will make every sensation A LOT more pleasurable. A water-based lube like our Sex H2O pH Balanced Lubricant is a must, as it won’t disturb the natural pH balance of your vagina, nor will it kill your precious vibe (in all seriousness though, silicone-based lubricants can damage silicone sex toys, so it’s best to stay away from these). In terms of how much to apply, start with a drop or two, but feel free to apply more as needed. You can also apply the lube directly to your sex toy, your vagina/vulva, or all of the above!

Tips For Your First Time

  • Start slow (literally and figuratively): To get started, turn the vibrator on its lowest setting and trace it along different parts of your body.
  • Don’t be afraid to explore: Explore different body parts, as well as different kinds of vibrators. You might realize you prefer a clitoral vibrator, a penetrative one, or a combination of the two (hello, elusive blended orgasm!). And as we all know, size isn’t everything. Small bullet vibrators can deliver just as much pleasure as larger rabbit vibrators.
  • Expect some trial and error: It might take you some time to discover what you like and what you love. Don’t be discouraged. 
  • Use lube: On dry land or in the tub... we can not stress this enough!
  • Experiment with water: Once you get more comfortable using your vibe, check if its waterproof (some are fully waterproof, while others are water resistant). If all systems are a go, take it into the shower or bath and experiment.

Good Clean Fun

Wondering what's best to clean your vibrator with? We recommend South’s pH Balanced Intimate Skin Cleanser and water. Grab your vibe and add a few drops of this cleanser to the bath - you'll thank us later. (Psst... Check out our Good Vibes Duos for a sweat deal). We should also mention, if your vibe isn’t waterproof, you can simply wipe it down with an antibacterial wipe. 

The takeaway? Vibing is FUN. Try not to worry too much. You’ll get the hang of it after a little practice (and trust us, you’ll want to practice). Plus, once you’ve got yourself all figured out, why not invite someone special to join you - sharing is caring, after all.
