Will more expensive toys offer better vibrations for me?

Will more expensive toys offer better vibrations for me?

I've tried several vibrators, both internally and externally and at various settings, and I don't get much enjoyment from them. Specifically, there's some physical reaction (e.g. getting wetter) but not much actual pleasure (just numbness).

However, all of said vibrators have been, well, cheap: a knock off pocket rocket, a simple bullet, basically all in the $10-$20 range and plastic. What I'm wondering is if I'm not that into vibration period, or if the issue is some quality that I wouldn't find in more expensive or fancier toys.

So for those of you with experience with a wide range of vibrators: Do you find much difference between the type (not intensity) of cheaper and more expensive toys? Are the vibrations on a luxury toy going to be more enjoyable? Is there anything in particular you'd recommend for someone like me? (At the moment I'm eying the Eroscillator and toys with "pulse" functions -- how different are those from, say, the much simpler turbo glider that EF is giving out as a free gift?)

I highly suggest the Eroscillator. I love it myself. However, a large price tag doesn't necessarily mean they'll have high vibration (or even be high quality, like some expensive jelly rabbits).

It sounds like you've been getting a lot of high-frequency or "buzzy" toys, which plastic is notorious for. Try something with lower frequency "rumbly" vibrations instead. Materials with more cushion (like silicone or TPE/TPR) will give you a different experience too.

Price is a funny thing and you're not guaranteed to get "better" vibrations just because the toy was expensive. We have quite a few really expensive toys that are just as buzzy and numbing as some of the cheapies (albeit they're much better made). I can't think of any rumbly toys in the $10-$20 range you mentioned, but slide up to $30-$40 and you should be able to find something more to your liking. The L'Amour line comes to mind first, but you can find toys with even deeper vibrations than those too.

I've never really understood the difference between buzzy and rumbly until this very moment, thank you!

I'll keep an eye out for silicone toys that reviews say are rumbly. I'll happily spend more for something I'll actually like, especially with EF's points program existing.

The one that works for my wife no matter what is her Eroscillator. She likes to take her time when possible, but always comes hard. The Eroscillator 2 deluxe with the grapes attachment is her all time favorite.

I have a rumbly silicone luxury vibe - the We-Vibe Touch - and I think there's a world of difference between that and a little AAA-battery plastic vibe. I'd never go back!

My first vibrator was a $20 or $30 stinky, huge jelly toy that somehow attracted every particle of cat fur in the house and never got me off. My next was a little metal $10 egg-style bullet and that did the trick perfectly! It doesn't have to be expensive to work right! Check out the reviews within your price point!
