5 Top Things To Consider When Purchasing The Perfect Vibrator

Let’s call her Jane. Jane is a middle aged woman, with silver-gray hair, soft brown eyes and appears to be frustrated when she recently visited the Greenfield Adam & Eve Store. I didn’t even have a chance to introduce myself — as soon as Jane saw me, she waved her arm at the wall of vibrators and said, “Too many vibes! Wa-a-ay too many! How am I ever going to choose the right one?”

“That’s why I’m here,” I said. “I’ll help you find your perfect vibe!”

Jane and I spent some time chatting about her needs, choosing possible toys and testing them out with batteries. She left with a bright pink Aria Lucent (batteries included) and a mini-bottle of toy cleaner. Several months later, she stopped by just to tell me that she simply loved that vibe! So, how did she succeed in choosing the perfect toy the first time around? That’s the A&E secret I’m going to share with you now.

The best way to pick a vibrator is to start, not with the toy, but with the person who’s going to use the toy. First, think about your needs and tastes. To make the process easy, here are the top 5 things you should consider when purchasing the perfect vibrator.

  • Connector.

    Will I want to use the vibrator internally?

    Some vibes are designed for internal use and may include a nice little bend to hit your g-spot. Others are “clit” vibes. Most vibes, however, are suitable for either use. If you like both kinds of stimulation at once, you can’t beat dual-stimulators or “rabbit-style” vibes.

  • Connector.

    What kind of texture/material do I want?

    Silicone is a highly rated material because of its comfort, smoothness and easy cleaning. Other material choices range from hard, smooth plastic to amazingly flesh-like rubber composites. One of the great things about shopping at an Adam and Eve store is that you can handle the toys and feel the various textures. Our staff can also answer any questions you may have about the different kinds of materials.

  • Connector.

    Do I want a battery-operated or rechargeable toy?

    Each has its benefits, although never having to buy another battery is a powerful incentive to get a rechargeable vibe! Most luxury vibes are rechargeable, and that brings us to a related question . . .

  • Connector.

    How much do I want to spend?

    You can get a nice battery-powered vibe for as little as $12.99, or you can choose a high-end, rechargeable, luxury vibe made of medical grade silicone that’s priced over $200. In between, you’ll find hundreds of styles at all price points.

  • Connector.

    Finally, ask yourself, What do I want my vibe to look like?

    Big or small? Lifelike or abstract in design? Pink or blue or purple? Our current favorite at A&E Greenfield is the Disco Bunny, Jimmy Jane Form 2 or the WE VIBE.

So, that’s A&E Secret #1. Answer those questions, just like Jane did in the store, and you’re sure to pick the perfect vibe!
