I took my best friend to a local adult store to purchase her first vibrator. She had told me she didn't have any toys at all and I about fell off my chair and we immediately went that night to go look.
I loved watching her reaction as we looked at different toys and features. She had a great time making fun of me when she had one of the employees go over toys that are for those with "clits of steel" and the employees brought out the super wands. LOL.
I'm not sure if I would ever buy her a vibrator unless it was like a really cute shape that would be more of a gag gift.
