The best vibrators for beginners: which sex toy to choose?

Do you think about it? Not sure where to start or what to choose? Here is a short guide and advice for choosing the right first sex toy. Masturbation contributes to our well-being, like a sports session. But the most important thing is to go at your own pace and follow your desires.

Why buy a vibrator?

  • To do good: It's a way like any other to take care of yourself, to decompress! We spend some time with ourselves, self-massaging. Masturbation is an intimate massage where you give yourself love.

  • For better self-knowledge: Who better than you to discover your body, its erogenous zones and what makes you feel good? We may read all the books, none can tell you how your vulva is, what your desires and desires are: because we are all unique! Yes, the best sex education manual is already in your hands! Getting to know your body better also means being able to better guide your partner during our relationships and to have fun together. Then if you need help you can always read the Female Masturbation Guide .

  • To add a little spice to 2 or more: Introducing a sex toy during your intercourse can raise the temperature and make you discover new sensations together. Note that there are also vibrators for couples that will stimulate both partners at the same time.

  • To feel good in your head and in your body: having fun leads to the release of this hormone responsible for the feeling of well-being: dopamine. It also helps reduce stress, pain and makes it easier to fall asleep.

  • Perhaps discover orgasm, without pressure and at your own pace : there are no rules, it can happen by surprise in a great moment of letting go. Better self-knowledge can lead you faster to enjoyment.

Convinced ? All you have to do is choose your ally to get started!

Sex toys are more and more numerous and now meet multiple needs. It becomes difficult to make a choice, we want them all! Keep calm and follow our lead...

How to choose your vibrating sex toy as a beginner?

We've put together a guide just for you, beginners, the curious, to help you choose your first vibrator.


Yes, before knowing what you want, discover yourself. Your little object of pleasure can make you discover new sensations.

What do you want to explore? The clitoris is the organ responsible for pleasure , with its 10281* nerve endings, there are things to explore! Know that the outer part is the glans of the clitoris (the one that looks like a small penis, it also has erectile tissue), at the top of your vulva is only a very small part of the clitoris.

Its two large "legs" or corpora cavernosa that surround the vagina and the urinary meatus can be stimulated in many different ways: outside the vulva, inside the vagina ( confused about the difference between the two ? ) and even by stimulation of the perineum and anus.

So go on an adventure, explore your body while masturbating , help yourself to erotic podcasts if you need a boost to get you in the mood.

Excerpt from the Guide to intimate well-being by Gapianne x Mia.

*According to a new study published on October 27, 2022: How many nerve fibers innervate the human clitoris #001, Sexual Medicine Society of North America and International Society of Sexual Medicine.


Once you have discovered the many facets of your body and the pleasant sensations that come with it, analyze the cravings to understand what suits you best.

Thus, you will be able to determine the stimulations that make you feel pleasure and perhaps even have an orgasm : are these stimulations external? (vulva and glans of the clitoris), anal, or internal (the vagina is very innervated, its size and the texture of the vaginal walls change when we are aroused), or both.

But the erogenous zones are not limited to your sex, on the contrary, think of all these other zones that give you pleasure too (nipples, knee, ear... again we are all different!)


And finally, identify what could influence your choice such as:

The technology used (Pulsed air, waterproof, etc) – different technologies for different needs;)

The size – neither too small nor too impressive? It's up to you

The vibrations - the rhythm, the intensity

The design (shape and colors) – we combine the useful with the pleasant

Usefulness - is it for naughty solo fun, or to spice up during sex?

Your budget – it matters!

Autonomy, its charging mode – its practicality to meet your desires

At Gapianne, we have selected vibrators that are perfect for beginners, tested and approved!
