We will cover all of our main categories of high quality vibrators and to which customers needs and desires they would be best suited for… so lets get cracking.

Bullet Vibrators:

Bullet vibrators are frequently recommended to beginners due to their compact size, unintimidating look and often great value for money. Bullet vibrators are also incredibly straightforward to use. Most come with a very simple and single operating button which can cycle through the various settings options when pressed. Bullet vibrators are usually made from a rigid material, such as plastic and/or metal and are always frequently used for direct pin-point stimulation. Bullet vibrators can in some cases be inserted into other sex toys (such as cock rings and vibrating panties), which makes these vibes very versatile too.

Best Suited To You: Bullet vibrators would best suit those who enjoy direct, on-point stimulation. They are frequently used for clitoral stimulation, but they can also be used to tease other erogenous zones. If you are looking for a vibe to use on your clitoris during penetration, then the bullet vibrator would be a perfect choice. The bullet vibrator doesn’t take up too much space between your legs, or block the entrance to your vagina like larger vibrators will do.

Just Not For You: If you are looking vibrator that can be used internally, you should probably avoid bullet vibrators. Due to their small size, we wouldnt recommend inserting them into the body. Bullet vibrators should also be avoided if you prefer a much broader stimulation, or seek intense power. There are a few bullets available that are really powerful, but most do emit gentle to moderate level intensity vibrations.

Vibrating Eggs:

Vibrating eggs also known as love eggs are similar to Kegel balls however they are designed to provide mind blowing pleasure rather than a workout. Vibrating eggs come in a wide variety of styles and they usually have a couple of things in common. First of all, the vibe will be round or oval in shape. The rounded feature makes the egg suitable for internal use as well as clitoral stimulation. Secondly, most vibrating eggs come with a remote control. The remote can operate wirelessly, or come attached to the egg via a body-safe control cord.

Best Suited To You: If you want a versatile vibrator, capable of delivering amazing internal and external stimulation. Vibrating eggs are also fantastic for couple’s looking to experiment, as you can allow your partner to control the stimulation via the remote. Due to their small size and pleasing unintimidating design, we would recommend the vibrating egg to beginners.

Just Not For You: Due to the rounded shape and size, vibrating eggs can often be difficult to grasp and control during use. Handling can be very awkward and clumsy when they get wet. If you prefer to thrust or jiggle your vibrator during use, the vibrating egg may not be the best option for you.

Classic Vibrators:

Classic vibrators are very much like bullet vibrators; they are usually smooth, streamlined and made from a rigid material. The biggest difference is the size. Classic vibrators are larger than bullets, so they can be used for internal stimulation as well as clitoral play. Although they are larger than bullets, the classic vibrator is still relatively slender (circumferences range from approximately 2.5 inches to 4.5 inches). With an unintimidating size and shape, the classic vibrator would be an ideal choice for beginners and those who prefer a slimmer sex toy for penetration.

Best Suited To You: If you are looking for a vibrator that you can thrust with but you don’t like being stretched too much, the classic vibrator would be a great choice. Most classic vibrators come with a basic, non-anatomical design, making them suitable for beginners and any who wish stay away from realistic looking sex toys. The classic vibrator can be used for clitoral and internal stimulation, making it a great choice for those who want a versatile sex toy.

Just Not For You: Classic vibrators are usually made from rigid materials, we would recommend avoiding them if you prefer softer, squishier materials. If your preference is, “The bigger, the better” we would not recommend a classic vibrator.

G-Spot Vibrators:

G-spot vibrators come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but most feature a curved shaft or an angled tip, to help you locate and stimulate the g-spot. Almost any internal vibrator can be used to apply direct stimulation to the anterior wall of the vagina, but a curved one will do most of the hard work for you. Before purchasing a g-spot vibrator, have a think about the kind of stimulation you are seeking. If you prefer it firm, hard and/or fast, it might be best to choose a rigid g-spot vibrator with a slimmer shaft and very little texture. If you prefer rumbling sensations and less pressure, look for a g-spot vibrator with a little more texture and flexibility (e.g the Fun Factory G5 Tiger Vibrator).

Best Suited To You: The g-spot vibrator will focus its intensity into the anterior wall of the vagina, so the stimulation feels more direct and precise. If you are seeking this type of sensation, the g-spot vibrator would be ideal.

Just Not For You: You want to simulate penis-in-vagina penetration. G-spot vibrators can be used to thrust with, but the slimmer, smoother shaft might leave you craving more. For some, the direct pressure applied to the anterior wall of the vagina is a little too overwhelming, so they are forced to slow down or stop. If you prefer a more rounded, inclusive sensation, the g-spot vibrator might not be for you.

Realistic and Semi-Realistic Vibrators:

Realistic vibrators are designed to look and feel like a real penis. They often have a defined glans/coronal ridge, a visible frenulum and even some veining throughout the shaft. Some may even come with testicles. Semi-realistic vibrators are designed to resemble a real penis, but they usually lack one or two of the features previously mentioned. Most realistic vibrators are made from a softer, squishier material, to give them a life-like feel. However, the material quality can vary dramatically from brand to brand.

Best Suited To You: If you are seeking the most realistic experience, both visually and tactilely.

Just Not For You: For some, the realistic design can add to their fun. For others, the disembodied penis look can be a little off-putting. If you are shopping for a partner and you are not sure how they feel about realistic sex toys, it might be best to err on the side of caution and choose a non-anatomical design at first.

Rabbit Vibrators and Dual Stimulators:

Rabbit Vibrator and dual stimulator is designed to provide internal and clitoral stimulation at the same time. Just like g-spot vibrators, the dual stimulator varies dramatically in shape, style, size and quality. Rabbit vibrators are so named because the clitoral stimulator attached to the main shaft resembles a pair of bunny ears. Rabbit vibrators are extremely popular, so it is no surprise that manufacturers have spent time developing new designs based on an old favourite.

Best Suited To You: If you enjoy having something inside you during clitoral masturbation, the dual stimulator would be ideal for you.

Just Not For You: If you need your stimulation to be very precise. Dual stimulators are notoriously difficult to fit correctly. Vulvae come in all shapes and sizes and each woman prefers to be stimulated in a certain way. Since the clitoral arm is attached to the main shaft, it can often fail to make contact with the most sensitive part of your clitoris. You can angle the vibrator, but this will cause the internal arm to break contact with your g-spot. These issues can affect the amount of stimulation you receive. To help combat this issue, look for a dual stimulator with a relatively flexible clitoral arm. It won’t fix the issue completely, but it will help.

Wand Vibrators:

Doxy Wand Massager started with the Hitachi Wand; a super powerful vibrator, originally designed to provide deep tissue massage. Then some clever soul discovered the Hitachi’s success in helping women overcome anorgasmia and the wands popularity as a sex toy exploded. This, of course, encouraged manufacturers to develop their own versions, but not all wands are created equal. The large, mains-powered wand vibrators (e.g. the Doxy Massager) are the most powerful sex toys to date, but the rechargeable and battery-operated wands can vary hugely in intensity.

Best Suited To You: Power-seekers, or those who struggle to reach orgasm through other methods. Due to its incredible power, we would also recommend the wand to those who usually prefer pin-point stimulation. The mains-powered wand is ideal for all kinds of external stimulation, including male masturbation and full-body massage.

Just Not For You: The mains-powered wand is often not recommended for beginners, due to its intimidating size, intense power and noisy motor, but don’t rule it out if you are struggling to orgasm through other means. Avoid the wand if noise is an important factor – they are often very loud.

Couples Vibrators:

The couple’s vibrator is designed to be worn by the female during sexual intercourse or while inserting other sex toys. Couple’s vibrators are usually quite small and tend to be shaped like the letter C. The idea is to insert one end into the vagina, allowing the other end to rest along your clitoris. Once inserted, it should remain in place hands-free. Couple’s toys usually come with a slim or flat internal arm. With the toy taking up little space inside you, you can often enjoy sexual intercourse (and clitoral stimulation) while the toy remains in place.

Best Suited To You: Women who enjoy hands-free clitoral stimulation while being penetrated.

Just Not For You: You need precise stimulation. Just like dual stimulators, couple’s toys can sometimes fit incorrectly, overshooting or undershooting your clitoris. They also have a habit of moving around during intercourse, so you don’t get the stimulation where you need it most. We would also avoid couple’s toys if you already struggle to take your partners penis, as the internal arm will take up some room in your vagina.

Useful tips to consider before making a purchase

Hopefully, you now have a few categories in mind, but before you begin shopping, there are some important questions to ask.

How big should the vibe be for my partner?

If this is your (or your partner’s) first vibrator, we recommend playing it safe and choosing one with moderate proportions. It might be hot to imagine them inserting that 12-inch mega-vibrator, but you could scare them off sex toys altogether. We recommend building it up slowly.

What is the texture like?

With the Fun Factory Tiger G5 Vibrator the shaft smooth and streamlined, or does it contain raised texture? The texture and the material used to create the vibrator will have a huge impact on how the toy feels during use. If you want your vibrator to feel quite subtle or gentle, you might want to choose one with minimal texture. The more texture, the more intense the vibrator will feel as you thrust it in and out.

When it comes to materials, you also want to think about friction. Smooth, polished materials (like glass and metal) will glide easily with the smallest amount of lubricant. Silicone and rubber materials create more friction, dragging slightly as they brush back and forth over the skin. This type of material will feel more intense during use.

How many settings does it have?

Does your new vibrator come with a wide variety of settings, including a few continuous speeds and a selection of pattern modes? The more settings a vibrator has, the more you can experiment with different sensations. You are also more likely to find a setting that suits your (or your partner’s) tastes.

How is the vibe controlled?

Some vibrators come with remote controls, others operate via buttons on the handle. There is even a new wave of vibrators that can be remotely operated via the internet and/or Bluetooth devices. If you suffer from mobility issues, or just want your partner to take control, it might be best to look for a remote control device. If you decide to go technological, double check that your device is compatible with the toy in question.

How is the vibe powered?

Is it mains-powered, rechargeable or battery-operated? If it is rechargeable, all our vibes come come with a mains or a USB charging cable. All our vibes also provide details how long a full charge will last? If your new vibrator is battery-operated, don’t worry we supply batteries, so no need to order any batteries at the time of your purchase.

What is the vibrator made from?

All our vibrators glass, stainless steel and medical grade silicone are all body-safe and virtually non-porous, so there is no risk of irritation and infection.

How noisy is the vibrator?

If you share a house with other people, you are probably going to want a quiet vibrator. At PleasureStore we label all our vibrators as “quiet” or “silent” so you don’t need to worry.

Is the vibrator waterproof?

A waterproof vibrator can be used in the bath or shower, which adds to its versatility. Of course, there are other benefits to choosing a waterproof design. First of all, the vibrator can be cleaned more thoroughly after use, since you are able to fully submerge/rinse it. Secondly, a waterproof vibrator is not going to be damaged if you accidentally get it wet during use.

Do you need to purchase anything else to use your new vibrator effectively?

We always recommend adding a bottle of water-based lubricant to your order before you checkout. Some sex toy materials create a fair amount of friction, so lubricant is essential for comfort. We also have an extensive range of condoms, sex toy cleaners and storage pouches, to properly clean and care for your new toy.
