Luxury vibrators vs. cheaper ones....which do you use the most if you have more than one type?

Luxury vibrators vs. cheaper ones....which do you use the most if you have more than one type?

Hot 'N Sexy TexasMama Hot 'N Sexy TexasMama
I'm curious about luxury vibrators versus the more common ones. I have several that we like now and while I am considering getting a Jopen somewhere down the road (not sure which one) and a couple of others - I am wondering about something.

If you have luxury vibrators - do you use them more than others - or do you find you use both types about the same % of the time?

My most-often used vibrator is my Hitachi. I wouldn't really consider it luxury at the price-point, more middle-of-the-road. For my other toys, it depends. I only have a few lower-end vibrators-- I hate having to hassle with batteries and refuse to use jelly/rubber/tpr/etc-- but of the ones I do have, I don't find myself often reaching for them.

I have a mix of both but much prefer my luxury ones. I like a lot of power and I like quality material and I find that I get both in my luxury vibrators. I also tend to have expensive taste in general, so maybe I'm just being a toy snob? With my own personal money I tend to buy more expensive things. The cheaper toys I have tend to be spur of the moment purchases or assignments from Eden. In my mind, with anything, I tend to think that more money equals better product. I know it's not always a hard and fast rule but it's stuck in my head anyway. I had a few old favorites before I started buying luxury about a six months ago (I just started shipping online) but they have all since been replaced and mostly seem like junk now!! I even threw a lot of them away to make room for more luxury items.

Not to say smaller ticket items don't have a place. I still do pick up a $20 toy here and there. It's just not very often anymore. Usually if I'm drunk and at the sex shop by my house or need free shipping or there's a really good sale.

My go-to daily vibrator is the wahl. If I am switching it up I go to a luxury vibe about 95% of the time. I'll rarely use a cheaper toy, but it does happen on occasion. Especially if I want a non-cumbersome toy when I'm using a dildo, then I'll use one of my plastic purple bullets.

My favorite toy is my $30 Seduction by Evolved, but after that comes my $50 Harmonia and my $100 Rondo! I like plastic and silicone best, but I find it really depends what you want in a toy. What makes my Rondo worth the price tag is how it throbs with the two motors, my Harmonia I love because of the size and flexibility, but my Seduction hits my G-spot best!

My favorite vibes are the Eroscillator, which I definitely consider to be a luxury vibe, and the Hitachi. Most of my cheap toys have been battery operated, and not very powerful, so I prefer my more expensive toys.

I use high end vibes FAR more than cheapies. I just don't feel much for my cheaper ones. But I've become a snob.

If an insertable vibe doesn't come with a price tag of $100+, I probably won't buy it.

I actually have some "favorites" that I use more than others, but I rotate others out. It's really a mix of both, but they both have advantages. Luxury products are usually made of better materials and have more dependable construction whereas cheaper ones are at least easier to replace. One of the BEST bullet vibes I had was super cheap, so it just depends. There is that old rule. "Buy cheap, buy twice".

My go to clit vibe is my MiMi, and then a variety of glass or silicone dildos. I don't use most of my cheaper toys ($75 and under) anymore just because my higher ends toys work better, feel better, etc. They usually have more power, and are safer materials, so that makes me use them more.

Well, I'll speak a little counter to everyone else's response here.

For starters, when I say 'cheap' I don't mean *too* cheap, because I only use toys that are silicone, glass, plastic, wood, metal, or something else non-porous. So, no cheap jelly or rubber or TPR.

So, that said---I also haven't tried too many vibrators. I've tried the
All Night Long (list price probably around $20---EF decided not to stock it)
Spoon (list price $28)
Reflections Beauty (list price $33)
Shello (list price $54)Vuali (list price $70)
The Cone (list price $120)
Ina (list price $156)

Wow, that was a really interesting exercise. Of these, I'm not going to include the Cone (because it's in a whole different category---worth the money but it's not the kind of vibe you were asking about) and the Spoon (it's a bullet, and it's great for me, but again, it's not like there are "luxury bullets")

Clit vibes don't count: Cone, Spoon.

So---I have pretty strong pelvic muscles. And I found out that my pelvic muscles can stop some vibes from vibrating when I'm getting close to orgasm and I "clamp down."

The vibes that I cannot stop: All Night Long, Beauty, Shello.

The vibe I can slow down: Vuali.

The vibe I can stop altogether: Ina.

So... higher price doesn't necessarily mean stronger motor. Part of it also is the structure of the vibe---Shello is a really delicious combination of firm and flexible (sunshineamine shows good pictures in her review), while Vuali is stronger than Shello, but it doesn't have much structure or support where my muscles clamp, so the motor suffers. Ina... there is no excuse for Ina, it's got a hard plastic core. I was really sad about its performance. All Night Long and Beauty are firm materials, so there's no way to deaden the vibrations.

So---it's not just "spend more money and you'll get a better toy." Spend *enough* money to get safe materials, definitely yes. But it's important to really consider the shape, the design, the construction, and how it will work for you, before deciding to spend money.

Ok, so to actually answer your question? I use the Shello more often than the others on this list. Heck, I even gave the Ina away!


(And then there's also the SaSi. That list prices at something like $145? and it didn't get me off, but it's more of a concept toy and I got it for learning more than for pleasure. Interestingly, I still do use it a few times a month.)

First I'd like to say that I haven't tried very many higher end toys basically only a few rabbits and the Lelo Nea. I'm saving up for higher priced toys atm because I'm frustrated with lower priced toys. I've gone through over a dozen different clit vibes under $30 and none of them can get me off. I have one toy that was a jelly g spot vibrator that I peeled the jelly sleeve off of and used as a clit vibe, and that was the only thing I had that could get me off. Since it is now dead I am eagerly awaiting a new toy that can actually get me off.

I generally only use the luxury vibes. I went from a bendy Jelly toy as my first to the LELO Gigi as my second, and never went back. I tend to use the luxury vibes more because they are all rechargeable. I rarely use my battery-operated toys.

I've not owned luxury vibrators because I can't really justify the cost. My mid-range vibrators are really effective for me and I just use rechargeable batteries.

My wifes all time favorite is the Eroscillator 2 deluxe with the grapes attachment.

Regarding this post being flagged:
So, I'm new to posting on Eden and now see that this particular posting was flagged with a reference to spam. What I have posted could not be further from the truth. My wife and I have owned the Eroscillator for years. Possibly the flag is because my description of the Eroscilator model may seem clinical. That said, the Eroscillator comes in I believe three different models. Hence, I was simply trying to be definitive on what exactly we have, so others would know what we have been successful with. We certainly have no relationship with the manufacturer whatsoever. However, when we say it is our all time favorite toy, it just happens to be so.
