Beginner Vibrators and Dildos? (Vib vs dildo?)

Beginner Vibrators and Dildos? (Vib vs dildo?)

Bleu Bleu
Hello~ I'm 19 and newly (Well not so new) had my cherry popped but due to the fact that I wont be seeing my boyfriend for another 7 months (long distance), I recently wanted to look into dildos and vibrators to make my wait NOT so long.

I have been roaming around and I already have a We Vibe Salsa (which I LOVE) and wanted to look more into a dildo with a suction cup or something like that (hands off) but I have nowhere to start. I am not all that experienced so I don't think I can take something too girth-y but I also don't want something too slim either. My boyfriend isn't built like a horse and I don't think I'd enjoy something that big anyway.

I was also wondering if a vibrator or a dildo would be a better choice. I already have a nice bullet vibe and since I have yet to achieve orgasm through vaginal intercourse, I wanted to see if I could practice and kinda be able to guide him a little better on what to do.

To make a long story short, I need a beginning vibe or dildo (preferred). I would like something below $80 and preferable with other options other than pink. Any material is fine, I plan on using a condom with my toy to not come in contact with the harmful stuff. Again, nothing too girth-y, please.

For dildos I would suggest the Mustang by Vixskin ...it is quite pricey but it is an amazing body safe dildo that feels fairly realistic. I also can't take a lot of girth as I'm built really small down there and this works perfectly for me. This is my favorite dildo by far. There is also the Spur if you want something smaller. Although it may be too small.

If you need something cheaper check out some of Tantus silicone dildos. I highly recommend their Acute dildo to beginners. Its great for hitting the g-spot.

I'd also like to note even though the VixSkins are expensive Eden always has a code to get 15% off and often has sales to save 20% or more on products if you spend so much. Keep an eye out for sales.

I am actually looking at the Mustang as a possibility! Great minds! I might look at the Acute more, I hadn't seen it. I have been bouncing between a lot of dildos and the reviews can be over-whelming.

Thank you, Sinfully!

I think I'm going with the mustang~ And with a coupon it is brought down to my price range.

I was considering the cush but a lot say it's a little big for beginners.

Thank you, Beck!

The Acute is one of my all time favorites and it's at a GREAT price point for such a high quality toy. Tantus' 02 Mark is a little girthier and longer than the Acute but is also one of my favorites. I'm not sure how "realistic" it is, but I LOVE the feel of the dual density silicone.
You didn't mention material choices, but here's some basics. For soft dildos, definitely stick with silicone. AVOID jelly, rubber, latex, pvc, sil-a-gel and UR3. They contain chemicals that are sketchy at best, toxic at worst, are porous and harbor bacteria and other things, are hard to clean and store, and can cause allergic reactions and complications. For firm dildos, glass, steel and wood are your best best. Plastic isn't completely out of the question, but it's definitely inferior and, honestly, doesn't feel as nice internally. Eden has some good resources for more info on materials and their safety scale is super helpful. Silicone and glass both rate a perfect 10, as a point of reference. I generally won't even consider anything below an 8, which is where plastic and non-porous TPR fall. Jelly is a 2! Yikes!
You might consider a smaller glass item as an alternative or follow up to some of the softer toys. Some of them are very reasonably priced and most are excellent g-spotting toys. But keep in mind that firm materials usually feel bigger than soft ones so make allowances for girth, especially since you are inexperienced.
As for vibrators, dildos are usually going to be considerably cheaper than a comparative quality vibrator and, frankly, i see no point in buying lower end vibes because you simply won't like them as much. Better to invest in a nice expensive vibe and get one you are going to love. As you know from your Salsa, good vibrators are worth the money! But it's hard to justify the expense of the higher end vibes when you don't really know what you like, especially for internal vibes. Dildos are a good way to find shapes and sizes that work for you since you can usually get 2-3 good quality silicone or glass dildos for the price of one high quality vibrator. Since you have a really nice clit vibe, I'd start out with some non-vibrating internal toys to get to know your body and preferences a little better.

Ohhh a lot of great points made! Yes, I am sticking to 10s. I value my body more than to stick something weird into it. I think I was reading up one day about plastics (and as a chemistry student who wears gloves in lab to just deal with nail polish remover) it freaks me out entirely too much. I was looking into glass but I (recently) tried out one and didn't like the...feel of it. It didn't go well with my body and adjust like I would have liked. Just felt...weird. Plus I'm prone to dropping and breaking things and I don't know what I'd do if I broke one.

I've heard too many horror stories of random dying of vibrators and how sad that would make me! I have enough battery operated products to know how terrible it is to just have my comp mouse die on me.

My salsa is a dream! I must write a review on it soon because that it single-handedly the best thing for myself I've bought in a while.

I do thank you for all your advise! It's really really helpful! You sound like a real expert!~

I was also considering flurry but I know I like texture and it looks a bit smooth.
