There are two types of women in the world – those who have no idea how they ever got along without a vibrator and those who’ve simply never tried one before. Vibrators are nothing short of life-changing when it comes to the quality of a person’s sex life, but even a good thing always has the potential to be better. Here are a few tips for getting the absolute most out of your favorite toy in every possible way.

1.      Establish a thorough care routine.

Your vibrator has more in common with your cell phone or your car than you might think. The better you are at taking care of it, the longer it will last, and the better it will perform. Start with the barest essential – basic cleaning and sanitation. Like all sex toys, your vibrator needs to be properly and thoroughly cleaned after every use to keep it hygienic and preserve its integrity.

A simple, thorough wash with gentle soap and water in the bathroom sink is fine for most toys. However, a good spray-on, wipe-off toy cleaner is well worth keeping around for those times it’s just not practical to hop right up after orgasm.

Make sure you’re checking your toys regularly for damage as well. Plastics can crack, glass can chip, and silicone can tear or develop other integrity issues. The seals on waterproof toys can deteriorate and cords can fray. Look your sex toy collection over thoroughly at least once every couple of months and replace anything with issues right away.

2.      Add some lube to the mix.

Never make the mistake of thinking lube is only useful if you suffer from vaginal dryness. It can add so much to any encounter, whether you’re enjoying yourself with a partner, with your vibrator, or even with your fingers. It’s phenomenal for transferring sensation and making sure you’re working with just the right amount of friction.

Plus, lubes can turn your play into a multisensory experience. They can be flavored or scented. They can be extra thick or pillowy – perfect for experimenting with anal play or oversized toys. They can even warm, cool, or tingle on contact for some seriously interesting sensations.

Just make sure you’re using a lube that’s compatible with your vibrator of choice. For instance, silicone-based lubes will not be friendly to any real-skin toys you own, and oil-based lubes can ruin the integrity of many toys. When in doubt, stick to a good water-based lube, as they’re compatible with just about everything.

3.      Treat yourself to an upgrade.

Some women assume that if they’ve used one vibrator, they’ve used them all when nothing could be further from the truth. If you can’t imagine life without a fully-charged vibrator in your nightstand – and really, who can – then you owe it to yourself to try a luxury upgrade ASAP. You’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner for reasons like the following:

  • Luxury vibrators are made of truly next-level materials that convey vibrations like a dream. Think buttery smooth silicone that glides over your skin and ergonomic designs that feel like they were made just for your body!
  • Powerful motors mean better quality vibrations and stronger orgasms every time. These are vibrations that rumble and penetrate, as opposed to simply buzzing across the surface of your favorite hot spots. Every last nerve ending – including many you didn’t even know you had – winds up stimulated and satisfied.
  • Innovative shapes and unusual functions bring a lot to the table that’s new – perfect for women who know variety is the spice of life. Some of today’s most intriguing vibes thrust and throb while others twirl and undulate. Add a wealth of next-level vibration settings to the mix and it’s not hard to see why toy connoisseurs go nuts for vibes from top manufacturers like FemmeFunn.

4.      Share it with a partner.

Your vibrator only has to remain your naughty little secret if you want it to. It’s just as capable of adding some oomph to encounters with your partner if you’re both on board with the idea. Deep, rumbling vibrations feel good to everyone’s sensitive nerve endings, so don’t be afraid to experiment a little and figure out what works for both of you.

Start with one of your favorite go-to vibes like the Ultra Wand. Then add to your growing collection by shopping for new options together. Great vibrators come in all shapes and sizes. Some are insertive while others are bullet-shaped or egg-shaped so that they glide across eager skin with ease. There are anal vibrators to experiment with, as well as Kegel vibrators like Momenta, and more.

Consider starting a toy chest and filling it with delicious options from luxury toy labels like FemmeFunn for experiences that are always guaranteed to satisfy. You’ll never find yourself unprepared for a toe-curling orgasm again.
