Vibrators for Virgins

I'm a female virgin who enjoys masturbating, but would like to try something new--by that I mean buying a vibrator. I would prefer something that could be used for penetration--though I would also like to try something that could provide clitoral stimulation (could be seperate from penetration)--and was inexpensive. What sort of vibrator would you suggest, and what other supplies (lube, cleaning, etc.) should I buy with it?

The thing is that depending which vibrator you buy, the price range will vary. Regular manual ones can go for about $40 if memory serves me right, at least last I saw them they were about that price. If your looking for a more complex one, there are those that offer both penetration (both vaginal and anal) and clitoral stimulation with rotating features. Last time I saw someone purchasing one it went for about $125 or so. Take into account that this was at a sex shop, I don't know how the prices differ online should you decide to purchase it there

When buying a toy, its essential that you buy the cleaning solution and before using the toy for the first time, get it cleaned. These go from $10-$20 sometimes $25 depending on the manufacturer. Lubes come in varieties too. You can get a regular one but there are warming lubes as well as flavor lubes. Try a few if your up for it to see which one fits your needs best.

Why? I agree a toy should be cleaned before and after use, but what makes the commercial cleaning solution "essential"? You don´t need fruit wash to clean an apple, and you don´t need toy wash to clean a toy.

Concerning the original question: You will have to find out what you like best. Vibrators come in all shapes, sizes, firmnesses and materials, and it is a matter of personal preference what works for you. Start with cheaper ones to see what you like and not taking too big a loss when something doesn´t work out, and once you have your "style", you can buy a better quality product. The expensive ones usually last longer and feel better, but as long as you don´t know what floats your boat, spending big bucks is just silly if you ask me.

I like the sex exhibitions - there, you can touch/handle the toys before you buy them. In a sex shop, it will depend on the owner and the product whether you can touch or not, but at least you can talk to the salesperson, and they can offer some advice. I would not recommend buying your first toys through the internet - it is hard to judge the size, texture and firmness of something just from a picture. Once you have some experience, online ordering is a very good option.

You will need lube. Everyone I ever talked to about this ended up needing it. No matter how aroused and wet you are, those toys have a way of drying you out (I have no explanation why, they are not porous and should not be able to take away any moisture, but they do!)

The best kind of lube depends on the toy you get. Water-based goes with everything, but has the shortest half-life (it gets sticky because the water evaporates out of it). Oil-based pretty much kills every toy, so steer clear.

I love silicone-based lube because it stays slippery forever, even in the bathtub. BUT: silicone lube eats silicone toys!! I ruined my very favorite toy this way because I didn´t think about this. Silicone toys are on the expensive end though, and latex, glass and plastic toys are fine to use with silicone lube.

Other than that, you will need a place to store your toy after it has been cleaned and is dry, but a ziplock bag will do that. No need for special boxes or pouches if you ask me, unless you like the design and want it.

One more thing concerning cleaning: If you buy a toy that is safe for in-water use (many vibrators are waterproof), cleaning it is sooo much easier that this makes it worth a few extra bucks if you ask me. No worries about moisture getting into the battery or the electronics, no "I have to keep this part dry at all costs", just wet, soap up, rinse, done.

Just like being on the safe side is all.
