Sex Toys/First Toy


Question
I am in my early 20's and still a virgin. I have masturbated a little, but would like something more then just my own fingers. I was wondering what vibrator you would suggest for a first timer.

Thanks,
Melissa

Answer
Hello Melissa,

Thank you for your question.

You want to start with something small, like a pocket rocket, mini wand, or rabbit ears toy like the Muse here-

All of these types of vibes are small (so easy to hide), don't need to plug in (so easy to use), fairly powerful (so more than enough to get you off).  They vary in price, but usually the cheaper you go, the cheaper the product, so won't last as longer as something that is a higher price.

For instance, the Pocket Rocket Plus is more expensive than regular Pocket Rockets, but comes with more speeds which is handy if you want to upgrade-

And, rechargeable wands are more expensive, but you don't need batteries-
