If you’re looking to buy your first ever sex toy, you might possibly be confused about where to begin. You will find that buying a massager is a good place to start.

Our guide to choosing an intimate massager

Massagers are smaller, more discreet and more multi-purpose than most vibrators. They are also a great new way to explore each other’s bodies during sex.

Good vibrations

Vibrating massagers are small and discreet. They easily fit into the palm of your hand and can be used across the whole body. Thus, they are great for exploring each other’s bodies with new pleasurable sensations.

As they are designed to fit into your hand, you are offered greater control over where the massager goes on your body. So you can better target the spots you want to hit for maximum pleasure.

They are more compact than many vibrators, meaning they can be less daunting to experiment with.

Try using them all over the body for an erotic massage before gradually progressing to more intimate areas. This makes massagers easier and more natural to use than other sex toys. They also help you get in touch with your body’s different pleasure centers.

Massagers work particularly well when used with intimate lubes and massage gels, as they help the massager to gently glide across the skin and find your most sensual areas.

They are available in different shapes and with different modes and speeds, so you can find the perfect one for exploring different areas of the body.

As they are suitable for both men and women, they’re great for experimenting with as a couple. A big plus is that they make an excellent naughty gift for both of you to share in bed!
