Hi everyone...This is my first time seriously considering buying a vibrator. I am worried about buying something that's made in China as they don't always make the best product. Can anyone suggest a good vibrator that's not too expensive that you like that's not made in China?!Thanks!!!
While I am touchy about anyone who implies that products made in China are unsafe (!), I understand your concern. You want what is safest for your body, and since China's reputation for production of goods as of late has been tarnished, you want to steer clear of those products just in case something terrible comes up, like "Cockroaches found in Chinese Sex Toys!"
However, just because a vibe isn't made in China does not guarantee quality, just as a vibe that IS made in China does not guarantee that it is inferior. Your best bet is to read the articles on material safety offered on this site and make use of material safety ratings, reviews, and star ratings to find the right toy for you.
The safest materials are those that can be sterilized, such as ceramic, glass, and steel. A drawback is that toys made of this material are usually more expensive. However, nonporous toys such as plastic are pretty safe too, and many good plastic toys are plenty affordable. I'd recommend starting out with a nice simple bullet and then moving on to something more specialized, but since you didn't specify, I'll just wish you the best of luck in finding the perfect first toy
