Best types of vibrators for beginners
- Bullet — bullet vibrators are suitable for external stimulation, they are discreet, and they can vary a lot in intensity
- Dildo — dildo vibrators are suitable for internal stimulation and they can have a realistic look or appear neutral
- Rabbit — a rabbit vibrator has an internal shaft and external ‘rabbit ears’ so it stimulates the clitoris and vagina at the same time for blended orgasms
- Love egg — love eggs are worn inside the vagina and remote control love eggs are great for partner play and long-wear (depending on material)
- Anal plug — vibrating anal plugs create a feeling of fullness while the vibrations add more stimulation
- Clit sucker — specifically centered on the clit, clit suckers provide pulsing indirect stimulation with or without vibrations
- Wand — wands are suitable for external use only and are usually very powerful
Top 5 things to think about before buying a vibrator
- Size — Do you want a vibrator with plenty of girth, or a more beginner-friendly one? Beginner vibrators tend to be less girthy and shorter
- Materials — Silicone is body-safe, non-porous, and easy to clean. Hard plastic is also body-safe and non-porous, but unlike silicone, it’s rigid. PVC and jelly are both porous, so we recommend avoiding these materials.
- Buzzy/Rumbly — Buzzy vibrations tend to stimulate the surface of the body with high frequencies, whereas rumbly vibrations stimulate deeper into the tissue of the body with low frequencies.
- Price — Price doesn’t always equal total satisfaction, so you should go for the vibrator that suits your wants and needs. In general, cheaper vibrators tend to break easier and might use unsafe materials but there are some great cheaper vibrators out there, so be sure to shop around.
- Area of stimulation — If you enjoy clitoral stimulation, look for a bullet vibrator, clit sucker, or wand vibrator. If you prefer internal vaginal stimulation, look for a vibrating dildo, love eggs or g-spot vibrator. If you are looking for an anal vibrator, you can choose between a vibrating butt-plug, a vibrating dildo, or a P-spot vibrator. If you love nipple play, a wand vibrator or bullet vibe also makes a great nipple toy
Should you spend more for a rechargeable vibrator?
Rechargeable Pros and Cons
- rechargeable toys tend to harbor more power
- travel safe
- not eco-friendly
- if you lose the charger the toy is unusable
Battery Operated Pros and Cons
- no charger to store
- battery operated toys tend to be less powerful
- less convenient
So, whether you’re a beginner to vibrators or experienced, you definitely know more about them now; read on to see our top picks of the best beginner vibrators on the market today!
What is a Beginner Vibrator?
A beginner vibrator is designed with all kinds of first-timers in mind! This means that the size small enough to be beginner-friendly, not just in length but in girth, and that the vibrating functions are variable so that you can experiment with different sensations. Good vibrators for beginners will also usually combine various functions, such as a vibrator that can be used for external stimulation as well as internal use; this allows you to engage in clitoris, labia, perineum, and glans play if you wish. The best size for a beginner vibrator is something that lacks large girth and length, as this can be overwhelming when paired with the navigation of multiple vibration functions. When choosing a beginner vibrator, people often opt for a bullet vibrator; these are small, but powerful vibrator that are great for external stimulation; unfortunately, a bullet vibrator cannot be used internally. For internal use, a vibrating dildo is a good choice.

The 10 Best vibrators for beginners in Test
Lovehoney Ignite 20 Function Bullet Vibrator
The Lovehoney Ignite 20 Function Bullet Vibrator is a great investment for a vibrator newbie: with 20 vibrating functions and a sleek, pink silicone design, this vibrator is best used for clitoral stimulation and is one of the best vibrators for beginners on our list. If you’ve never used a vibrator on your clitoris before, this toy gives you 17 vibrating options to build from, as well as 3 different vibrating speeds. Made from body-safe silicone, this toy comes with a cute storage bag and is chargeable via a USB cable for convenience and simplicity. If you’re looking for a first time vibrator, this little toy is an ideal candidate!
The Lovehoney Ignite 20 Function Bullet Vibrator is a great first time vibrator, especially if you have a clitoris and you’re looking to achieve more orgasms either during solo play or with a partner. This toy is not for you if you’re looking for a vibrator for penetration purposes, as the bullet is for external use only. Whilst you cannot use this little toy for penetration (vaginal nor anal) it can still be used to stimulate the erogenous zones on the outer body, and is great when used during a steamy session with a partner to crank up the heat and intensify your clitoral orgasms. If you’re looking for a vibrator for solo masturbation, this bullet is also a great choice: enjoy some me-time and experiment with the 20 vibrating functions at your own speed. A great vibrator for beginners, we highly recommend this toy for for clitoral stimulation, solo use and during penetrative sex.
Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine Vibrator
The Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine Vibrator is our G-spot test winner! With a curved, ribbed tip perfect for hitting that G spot and a raised ridge for giving the clitoris some love, this toy is a great first time vibrator. With a ring handle and sleek, USB charger and body-safe silicone for easy cleaning, this toy also scores a full 100/100 when it comes to ease of use. Like all good vibrators for beginners, the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine combines clitoral and G spot stimulation, with a beginner-friendly 4.5 insertable inches.
If you’re a first time vibrator user, the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine combines the thrill of g-spot stimulation with clitoral stimulation, with 6 vibration patterns and 6 intensities. The curved shaft is ribbed in order to fully stimulate your G spot, whilst you control your pleasure via the toy’s handy, ring-shaped handle.
With a diameter of 1.7 inches and 4.5 insertable inches, it’s certainly a beginner-friendly toy. This vibrator is made from body-friendly silicone, making it easier to clean for a sex toy newbie, and coming in at under $50, it’s good value for a first-time toy. Whilst the battery life of 50 minutes might be slightly limiting for longer sessions with a partner, simply keep your USB charger handy when you’re engaging in some solo play to boost up a little.
Desire Luxury Rechargeable Remote Control Love Egg Vibrator
The Lovehoney Desire Luxury Remote Control Love Egg is a nifty little vibrator ideal for a beginner, designed to give you hands-free pleasure 100% in your control (or 100% in your partner’s control!) If you’re unfamiliar with egg vibrators – also known as “love eggs” – they’re oval-shaped toys usually placed in the vagina to heighten pleasure during sex and foreplay. How do they work? Well, the vagina itself doesn’t have lots of touch-sensitive nerves, but what it does have in abundance is pressure-sensitive nerves: this means that pressure (provided by the egg, which is normally wider than a traditional vibrator) and the accompanying vibration create pleasure waves which spread throughout the entire pelvic area. This type of toy is perfect for a beginner vibrator, as you can really connect with your body and feel pleasure through your internal clitoris.
The Desire Luxury Rechargeable Remote Control Love Egg Vibrator is a great first time vibrator choice and an ideal option for couples, especially as a way for you or your partner to take their oral sex game to the next level! With the price reaching almost $100, it’s certainly an investment, but with 12 vibration speeds and 8 patterns, you won’t get bored with this toy! Another pro for this vibrator is that it is made from body-safe silicone, making it easy to clean after use. For the price, we’d hope that the remote control would be less temperamental, but this problem can be solved by remaining close to your partner during use, and simply letting your partner adjust the controls as they please. Overall, this love egg makes for a great first-time vibrator, although if you prefer a vibrator with a separate clitoral stimulation function, one of our other recommended vibrators might be more suitable for you needs.
Fifty Shades of Grey Greedy Girl G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator
Our rabbit testwinner, the Fifty Shades Greedy Girl Rabbit Vibrator packs a punch! With 15 vibration settings and a sleek, body-safe matte black finish, it’s the perfect vibrator for stimulating that elusive G-spot, with a curved bulb tip designed specifically to help bring you to a G-spot orgasm. With 5.5. insertable inches, this toy is also good for beginners, although if you’re a first-timer, you might struggle with the 1.5 inch diameter. As the toy is centred on penetration, you might want to try the Greedy Girl after you’ve already experimented with one of our other beginner-friendly recommended toys.
Whilst this gorgeous matte black vibrator packs a punch, it’s not really suitable as a first time vibrator. With a diameter of 1.5 inches, you might find this toy a little too girthy for your current needs. However, if you’re a beginner (but not a first-timer) this gorgeous sleek vibrator might be The One! With 5.5 insertable inches it’s a manageable length for a beginner, and the clitoral stimulation – combined with the bulbed tip optimal for G-spot stimulation – offers fully-rounded pleasure.
When it comes to design, we can’t deny that this toy checks all the boxes. With a sleek black matte finish, soft silicone shaft and a red satin storage bag, this vibrator screams luxury. This luxury does come at a price, with the vibrator coming in at just under $100. It’s certainly an investment, but if you’re a beginner-to-intermediate vibrator user looking to take your pleasure to the next level, it’s worth the splurge. Equipped with a travel lock for your peace of mind, you can take your Greedy Girl wherever you go!
Lovehoney Deluxe Rechargeable Mini Massage Wand Vibrator
If you’re a vibrator-newbie looking to achieve powerful clitoral orgasms, investing in a magic wand is a great option! No, not the Disney kind, the vibrating kind! Less complicated than a rabbit or a love egg, magic wands really do deliver when it comes to supercharged clitoral stimulation. The Lovehoney Deluxe Mini Massage Wand is an ideal first time wand for a beginner: with 10 intensity levels and 7 vibration patterns, this little wand will help guide you to powerful clitoral orgasms either solo or with a partner. You can also choose from a variety of colours for this wand – we love the gorgeous pastel lilac displayed above. Whilst some more powerful magic wands are mains-powered, you can simply charge this mini magic wand at your laptop with a handy USB charger.
Packing a punch with 10 intensity levels and 7 vibrating patterns, the Lovehoney Deluxe Rechargeable Mini Massage Wand is the perfect first time vibrator, guaranteed to give you powerful clitoral stimulation. Especially ideal if you dislike penetration but still want earth-shattering orgasms, this mini magic wand is equipped with a wide, ergonomic head, helping you to stimulate those hard-to-reach nerve-endings. This toy can also be used on the external body, whether it be the other erogenous zones – or even just as an on-the-go back and neck massager. However, if you’re looking for a multi-purpose vibrator with penetration functions, this toy is not for you, as it is for external use only. Affordably priced under $50 and perfect for a first time vibrator, this little toy is our Wand category testwinner!
Dame Eva II Hands-Free Rechargeable Clitoral Vibrator
If the idea of a hands-free clitoral vibrator seems like a luxury from the Year 3000, you’re wrong! Let us introduce you to the Dame Eva II, a hands-free vibrator ideal for use during sex but nonetheless suitable for solo use. With a three power motor and three vibration intensities, this little vibrator is attached to your clitoris and Dame Eva does the rest of the work for you! Both waterproof and made from medical grade silicone, this toy is luxurious and high quality, designed with the clitoris in mind. With its gorgeous millennial-pink exterior, the Dame Eva II can help you achieve better orgasms during penetration, whether during sex with a partner or from other toys.
Whilst this vibrator can technically be used solo, with just 3 different vibrating intensity levels it’s not the most ideal vibrator for solo masturbation – especially if you struggle to orgasm and especially considering the hefty price tag! This toy is great for clitoral stimulation but given its hands-free nature, is best used in couples play. We also love the motivation behind the creation of the Dame Eva: it’s a known fact that if you have a vagina, orgasming from penetrative sex alone is not particularly common. Whilst it can happen, the best orgasms usually occur from combining some form of penetration with clitoral stimulation, and the aim of the Dame Eva is to make this as easy as possible, with a small, hands-free clitoral vibrator. Whilst we wouldn’t necessarily recommend this product as the best toy for solo use, we recommend it highly for explosive fun with your partner!
Satisfyer Pro 2 - Next Generation
The Satifsyer Pro 2 Next Generation is our Oral category testwinner! If you love the feel of oral sex and want to be able simulate it at home with your own toy, the Satisfyer Pro 2 is your ideal match. Affordable, easy to use and ideal as a starter toy, this vibrator offers targeted clitoral stimulation via pressure waves in a variety of intensities, with 11 vibration speeds and clitoral suction.
Overall, the Satisfyer Pro 2 is great as a starter toy if you’re looking for a vibrator designed for targeted clitoral stimulation. We also recommend this toy for its affordable price – if you’re just starting out using vibrators, you don’t want to splurge hundreds of dollars on a single-function toy that you might not like. Priced at under $50, this toy is ideal if you want to test out clitoral suction vibrators without breaking the bank. However, with the affordable price obviously comes some downsides, in particular that the vibrations on the Satisfyer Pro can be quite weak. If you struggle to orgasm, it might not be the best choice. However, for a beginner or a first-timer, the Satisfyer Pro 2 is a solid, easy to use top-tier choice.
Lovehoney Butt Tingler 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug 3.5 Inch

With 2 vibration speeds and 3 vibrating patterns, this toy our category testwinner for the best anal vibrator for beginners.
If you’re new to anal play and want a beginner-friendly butt plug with some vibrating functions, the Lovehoney Butt Tingler is an optimal choice. It’s 3.5 insertable inches is beginner-friendly, whilst the 5 vibrating functions offer some internal stimulation to spice up the experience and help things run smoothly. However, if you’re looking for a butt plug to use for double penetration, this toy is not ideal, as the flared base can get in the way and impede any other penetration. The vibrations on this toy are also fairly weak and limited in options, so if you’re looking for a toy that prioritises vibration, this butt plug isn’t the ideal choice. We recommend this butt plug for newbies looking to experiment with butt play, either solo or with a partner! Submersible, you can also use this toy in the shower or bath for some me-time!

You can choose between a gorgeous Jade green or plum purple colour, and the broad vibrations mean you can stimulate not just the clitoris but the surrounding areas too, hitting those hard-to-reach nerve endings! The Dame Pom is also flexible, and fairly versatile with a rumbly, powerful motor.
Ideal for solo masturbation, this small, travel-sized vibrator slips into the palm of your hand and offers some powerful clitoral vibrations.

If you’re in a long distance relationship or simply like to get adventurous – discreetly! -in public, the Lovense Lush 3 is a great first-time toy. Whilst the vibrations are not necessarily the strongest of all our vibrators reviewed, they’re beginner-friendly and can be adjusted according to your needs. Nonetheless, the real superpower of this toy is its portability and capacity for long-distance stimulation. If you’re apart from your partner for long periods of time or in a long distance relationship, this app-controlled toy could come in handy to boost your sex life whilst you’re both apart. If your long-distance situation is temporary, you can still have fun using this toy once you’re physically back together: it could be used to have fun in public or even incorporated into sex or oral.

Now, we’ve covered all the bases of first-time vibrators: rabbits, magic wands, palm vibrators, hands-free vibrators, bullet vibrators and even app-controlled vibrators. Our next vibrator doesn’t exactly have a niche – except that it might be the world’s most versatile vibrator!
The Mystery Vibe Crescendo is an award-winning, innovative vibrator, designed to imitate fingers and is fully flexible to bend and curl according to your needs.

Red flags when shopping for your first vibrator
Before making your purchase, make sure to check certain product specifications to make sure your vibrator will be the right one for you! Refer to our handy checklist below for some help:
Check the materials of your chosen vibrator and ensure that it is body-safe. Opting for non-porous materials for your first toy is a good idea.
Always double check the dimensions (diameter as well as length!) and ensure that the toy is suitable for your level of experience.
Make sure to check the reviews of both the product AND the shop before making your purchase. We recommend buying from one of our high-quality, reputable sex toy providers.
Some materials used to make sex toys can irritate the skin and body: if you’re a beginner, try to find a vibrator without phthalates.
Cleaning your vibrator is vitally important! Check the cleaning instructions and try to opt for something easy to clean, like silicone.
What is the best size of vibrator for beginners?
One Size DOESN’T Fit All
If you’re wondering what’s the best size of vibrator for beginners, it really depends on your level of experience. Being a beginner to vibrators is not the same as being a beginner to sex, and everything will depend on what kind of toy you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a first time vibrator for vaginal penetrative purposes, there are some key specification to look out for, but ultimately your choice will depend on your experience.
Best size of vibrators for beginners, what to look out for:
- Size: not just length, but girth
- Texture: ridged, veiny, smooth etc
- The tip: if the vibrator has a bulbed head for G-spot stimulation etc
Anal vibrators for beginners
When it comes to anal vibrators for beginners, again look for the diameter and girthiness of the toy, as you might find it difficult to accommodate bigger toys as a first-timer. Whilst there is no perfect size or “one size fits all” beginner anal vibrator, always start with the smallest and work your way up. Some sex shops sell anal starter kits if you’d prefer to buy a range of sizes to experiment with.
How to use vibrators for beginners?
Vibrators for beginners have a multitude of uses, and can be used by any genders and sexualities, and used either solo or with a partner. Here are some common uses for beginner-level vibrators:
No matter what you’re using your vibrator for, ALWAYS use a compatible lube when experimenting with a first time vibrator.
The clitoris is full of nerve-endings, and half of them we probably haven’t even discovered yet! Use a wide-headed, clitoral vibrator to explore your body’s pleasure centre and enjoy some out-of-this world orgasms. Sorry, neighbours!
Have better orgasms
The clitoris can be one of the most neglected body parts during penetrative sex, but it doesn’t have to be! Incorporate a clitoral vibrator into the bedroom and watch your orgasms intensify.
Spice up a long distance relationship
If you’re in a long-distance relationship and missing the intimacy with your partner, you can try investing in an app-controlled vibrator. Perfect for beginners, these toys can help keep the magic alive when you’re physically apart.
Experiment with anal play
If anal play interests you but you’re feeling intimidated by the idea, experiment first with an anal vibrator for beginners. Make sure to choose a butt vibrator with a flared base – you don’t want to be making any embarrassing trips to the ER!
Experiment with different positions
If your partner is well-endowed or you have problems with penetrative sex (if you suffer from vulvodynia, for example) you can use beginner vibrators to test out different positions and see what works best for you. If you love the feeling of domination in the doggy position but not so much the penetration, try a sex toy!
How to Clean a Beginner Vibrator
It's vitally important to clean your sex toys after each use, and this applies to all beginner vibrators. Knowing how to correctly clean your toy will depend on what kind of material it is made of: bacteria can often penetrate the material of porous toys, so we recommend using condoms alongside cleaning after each use. Vibrators made from silicone are easier to clean: using some hot soap and water and thoroughly cleaning the surface of your toy should do the trick. Always dry the vibrator completely each time before storing it away until its next use. Refer to our guide below for more detailed instructions on cleaning all types of toys:
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
