Material: What should my vibrator be made of?

On the subject of soft or firm, with hard materials like steel or glass there are no problems with hazardous substances. But if it needs to be a soft vibrator then you have to make sure that only 100% medical grade silicone is used. Especially when looking for your first time vibrator, people tend to choose a toy made of soft material. All FUN FACTORY vibrators are made of just this high-quality silicone which has proven itself time and again.

Power Source: Rechargeable or Battery Vibrator?

If you want a rechargeable vibrator, you are protecting the environment but have to be a bit patient because your newly attained item first needs to be charged. The battery-operated vibrators are immediately ready for action after inserting batteries! In general, rechargeable vibrators have a stronger vibration than battery powered vibrators. However, the intensity of the toy's vibration is not only a matter of taste but also sensitivity. The best thing to do is test out the vibration levels in the store on your nose for a quick experience of just how much power is under the hood. Basically, rechargeable toys have a little more power than battery powered vibrators.

SHAPE: Which shape & size is right for me?

If the vibrator is to be used solo, then the shape can be selected according to your own personal preferences. Did you know that there are specific shapes for G-spot, clitoris, head of penis or prostate stimulation? Pick a shape that’s going to target your erogenous zone(s) of choice.

Big, small or somewhere in the middle? Not sure what size you want? There are many types of vibrators. Take a look at the size specs before you get your sex toy. Try measuring the width of your fingers for a vibrator comparison. For partner sex, perhaps the large dimensional vibrators are not the best choice, because the male partner might feel a little inferior.
