We’re the first ones to admit that shopping for a vibrator is filled with many options. The good news is that there’s no shortage of brands and styles to choose from. (YAY!) The bad news is that sex toys aren’t exactly the kind of product you can try on and take for a joy ride before purchasing. (BOO!) Ready for the DL? Read on. We’ve done the work for you and prepared a list of 9 types of vibrators and sex tips to help you on the way.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Waterproof/Splashproof Vibrators: Ready to explore uncharted sexual territories? (Hell yes!) Try starting out with waterproof and splashproof vibrators. Bathtubs, pools, hot tubs, waterfalls… So many slippery-fun ideas, so little time…
- Waterproof vibrators can be submerged, but splashproof toys are more suitable for steamy showers.
- Water must not enter the battery compartment, so be sure that it’s tightly closed and the small rubber ring is kept in place. This will ensure that you can keep the good times coming.
- Water can actually amplify sound, so vibrations may be a little louder when your toy is submerged, but whatever. Just a FYI.

- Originally created in Japan over 25 years ago.
- Available in many shapes and sizes.
- Once the shaft is inserted into the vagina, the rabbit ears provide clitoral stimulation. Talk about a win-win!
- Most innovative models have oscillating shafts and beads that rotate beneath the surface to stimulate the entrance of the vagina. To sum it up, a rabbit vibe basically covers all of your most sensitive pleasure areas.
