Best material for first time insertion?

Ellamore Ellamore
Hi everyone!

I've been reading a lot about different kinds of materials and decided all the sex toys I get from now on won't be jelly. So far I've used metal, silicone, rubber, and jelly toys. They were either anal or for clit.

I'm going to buy my first insertable vibrator soon and have had a hard time picking out the material I should get. I actually am a virgin (won't be soon though) and have put nothing inside besides fingers, so I don't know what I prefer at all.

I thought about getting the Waterproof turbo blueberry glider because it is cheap, and got awesome reviews. From what I read, hard plastic is a safe material.

But does anyone have any experience about how it feels inside? Is it so hard that it's painful?

I've also considered silicone. I've felt silicone before and it seems softer and that it gives more give. I like the High roller vibe as well, it's just a bit pricy for me. I'm 21 and don't even know if I'll like it.

Thanks for reading and any advice.

I'm partial to silicone and glass.

Silicone is soft and flex...it's also pretty safe. Glass is smooth, great for temperature play, and you can use ANY lube with it. Unfortunately, both aren't usually in the cheap range.

If you do decide to go with a more economical material, condoms are always a good choice for covering a toy if you're worrying about UTI's and such.

good luck!

HAVE FUN!

Plastic isn't too hard unless it's at an odd shape where it can press against your body in uncomfortable ways. The shape and diameter of the blueberry doesn't seem like it'd be uncomfortable and I think plastic on that type of toy would do just fine for a newbie to insertion. What I like about plastic too..especially shiny/smooth plastic like that is that it glides easily and doesn't drag at all.

I think overall though no matter what material you use the biggest thing is going to be the size and shape. I wouldn't go with anything too textured at first, or anything too large and you should be good with whatever material you choose.

Thanks for the replies everyone!

I've thought about glass too but it just seems "too hard". Like...in my mind I think I would enjoy that. But on the other hand I'm afraid it would be painful since I'd probably take a while to learn how to use it.

Alicia, I thought that about the plastic toys that it would be easier to glide. I really imagine it feeling good I just notice sometimes plastic toys are complained about, or people say they're cheaply made. But I'm in love with the blueberry one and I think I'll get that regardless, even if I choose something else. It's such a good deal with so many good reviews, it seems like a winner.

Thanks again.

Well, with plastics you'll have some that are cheaply made and then some that are better made. But I think it's a great place to start. And what I have been doing is getting cheaper toys if I'm not sure I'll like the texture or the shape or the material or what not. Then, once I know for example..that I like curved toys, I might then invest in a more expensive, well made curved toy. But until you know what you like there's not really much sense in spending a lot of money.

So, since you think you'll like the bulbed design of the blueberry I'd say that's a great place to start because there are bulbed vibes and dildos in many different materials, a lot costing more then the blueberry, so it seems like that one would be a good first choice to test out the feel.


If you do go with glass, I recommend a smooth one without a lot of texture, I have one that's ridged and while I like it, I wouldn't recommend it for someone new to insertion because it can be pretty overwhelming. But glass doesn't really feel as hard as it sounds like it would because it's so smooth, and you can't any more hygienic then glass!

Regarding the specific toy you mentioned, I wouldn't go with the Blueberry Glider. The bulbes were actually painful for me and I didn't enjoy it much while thrusting (I still need to write a damn review though hehe). It also may be too ummm.. girthy? But to each his own. However, the toy is extremely powerful in regard to the vibes it gives off.

So I'd recommend glass. It may seem too hard at first, but it's not *that* much harder than plastic toys. My first dildo was glass and it was an amazing experience. I'd only had one partner before I bought it and I still wasn't used to penetration, but the glass toy wasn't a problem at all. I also recommend silicone as one poster mentioned.

Whatever you do, I really recommend getting a smooth toy. Without nubs, bulbes, swirls.. etc. Good luck and let us know what you decide on!

I actually agree that glass is excellent; totally smooth and frictionless but much nicer than plastic. Plastic is, really, just as hard as glass once it's inside you. Neither have any give and glass feels much nicer.

I know it's kind of silly and christmas-y but the candy cane is a slim 1" diameter, smooth, straight shaft that would be ideal for a beginner. link

I think silicone or plastic would be good materials to start with. The Turbo glider seems to be a popular toy for beginning insertion. The only reason I wouldn't recommend glass is because it can be pretty heavy, meaning that the motions you make might have a bit more "oomph" to them than if you moved a plastic toy around. With a lighter toy, you're less likely to feel discomfort. I love my glass toys, don't get me wrong, but I am glad I didn't try them first.

Actually the candy cane dildo isn't that expensive for a glass one...now I'm thinking I'll get that along with something else. Maybe still the the Turbo glide.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a silicone insertable vibrator? The High Roller one looks like it may be too girthy now.

Thanks for all the replies.

It's not a vibrator, but the Small Silk by Tantus would be excellent for beginners, or perhaps the Silk Medium. Both are smooth and not very girthy or large.

I reviewed the blueberry and it would probably do pretty well. The curves are smooth and not sharp and the smaller knob tip will be more gentle than a bigger end, I'd think.

Silicone is softer but I find it drags more on my skin sometimes.

I think you'd like the Blueberry.
