Choosing a vibrator to add to the mix can be difficult, given there are so many on the market. This guide will help you find the best vibrator.
There are a number of questions to consider when picking a vibrator. Do you want to use it for internal use, is it for solo play or are you going to use it together as a couple, how big do you want it to be, and will you be using it in the bath or shower?

A little bit extra…
FOREPLAY: Finger vibrators, Tickler vibes and Tenga’s VI-BO range are great warm-up vibrators. These vibrators are generally not super powerful and they are a bit of fun (think the crazy Tickler Mystic antenna) to share with your partner.
LONG DISTANCE: It doesn’t matter if you have a FIFO partner, you’ve started a long distance relationship, or your partner travels for work, with an app driven vibrator your partner can control your vibrator from the other side of the world.
Types of Vibrators
There are a range of vibrators available, and they all stimulate different parts of your vagina. Read more below to get a better understanding of the stimulation each vibrator provides.
A bullet vibrator is a small or mini-vibrator, sometimes called a lipstick vibrator. It is called a bullet because its shape resembles a bullet. Most are about the height of your palm so they are good travel companions. Bullet vibrators are used externally, providing clitoral stimulation.
A rabbit vibe is a combination of the two above, clitoral and g-spot, all rolled into one. So while the shaft goes in search of your g-spot, the rabbit ears stimulate your clitoris – it is the best of both worlds! You can easily start using your rabbit as just a clitoral vibrator and work you way up to inserting it for g-spot stimulation.
MAGIC WAND MASSAGER
Is it a massager or a vibrator? Well it’s both. It can be used for all over body massage, but it also vibrates and the round head makes it awesome for clitoral stimulation. In fact the reason it is so popular is because most magic wands are mains powered making them rather powerful. With an attachment it can be used internally.
These are usually vibrators that are worn to stimulate both partners during sex. They include vibrating cock rings (worn by the man), finger vibrators, and the u-shaped couples vibes like We-Vibe. Most of these vibes provide clitoral stimulation during sex to make it easier to achieve an orgasm in the moment.
Finger vibrators should be thought of as a sub category to couples vibrators. They are useful as a warm up tool, a pre-sex vibrator, but can also be used during sex to help stimulate the clitoris and other parts of your body. Usually not super powerful, finger vibrators slide over or between your fingers.
How big do you want your Vibrator to be?
Who says size doesn’t matter? It’s important to check out the size and pull out your handy ruler to really visualise how big the vibrator is. We’ve had some customers who get their vibrators and are surprised by just how big they are!
You can find the sizing information on the product page under the tab “DETAILS”.
Do you need a Waterproof Vibrator?
Most newer vibrators are waterproof, for example the entire range of Tenga are all waterproof, as are most of Je Joue, Swan, Leaf, We Vibe and Rocks-Off. Waterproof means it can submerged in the bath or a swimming pool.
Make sure you read the waterproof description carefully as some of products are only splash proof which means they can’t be submerged but you can generally run a damp cloth over them for cleaning.
Waterproof vibrators are usually easier to clean as you can pop them into a sink of very hot water.
If you are going to be using your vibrator in water and need lubricant, then you will be needing oil or silicone based lube. Water based lubricants are water soluble so dissolve in water.

Rechargeable, batteries or mains-powered?
Did you know until a few years ago, hardly anyone searched for mains-powered vibrators? Since that little book, Fifty Shades of Grey, now everyone wants to know what is the mains powered wand Christian used on Ana…and the answer is a Magic Wand Massager. The original magic wand is the only mains powered vibrator available, although thankfully LELO have created a rechargeable version which is equally as powerful and waterproof!
Most vibrators at Mimi De Luxe are rechargeable as we see these as more beneficial for our customers (having a battery run flat at the critical moment is, well…frustrating!) and better for the environment.
