      Hi,

      I hope you can help me. Up until approximately 2 years ago I purchased my vibrators from Ann Summers. Suddenly they stopped stocking the model I used to buy. I have tried other expensive models since, but sadly I find they are very dissapointing.

      What set the original model apart was the high frequency of the vibration in the rabbit ears. I have not managed to find a model which vibrates at the frequency of the discontinued model. Advertisers do not concentrate on the frequency of vibration which in my opinion is the most important characteristic of the vibrator.

      Can you help in identifying a model which vibrates at high frequency.

      Would love to be a tester of your products.

      Thanks in anticipation,

      Caroline.

      Please can you help us!! My female partner and I (also female) want to use a strap on double vibe However my partner can only use "thin" ones. I have tried everything that looks thinner than the usual size vibe and even the feeldoe thin is too big for her. Can you recommend anything to help us.

    • Anna: June 17, 2009 11:05
      I have received my LoveHoney Bang Bang Bullet, and it doesn't do anything for me, even when I use it on my clitoris. I bought it as I'm told self-pleasure is the way to orgasming during sex. My partner and I have been together for two years, but didn't have sex for one year. Before we did, I could fantasise and this sometimes led to an orgasm. Now, however, orgasms are a no-show even though we experiment and the results are very pleasurable. There have been a couple of close times, and I haven't the heart to tell him that I've never orgasmed with him. (We're each others first partners) I want to orgasm with him, but touching myself never really worked so I decided to give a vibrator a go.

      As a first-timer, is there anything I should be doing with it? At the moment it just feels like something vibrating inside me.

      Also any tips of bringing it up with him?

    • LoveHoney Steve: June 18, 2009 10:25

      Hi,

      I'm looking to buy my first vibrator. I'm recently single and want to please myself but I don't know where to start! What should I be looking for as a beginner/?

    • Susan: June 25, 2009 21:27
      hi, ive never used a vibrator before but am about to have radiotherapy treatment for cancer that will result in long term dryness and shrivelling of the vagina. i will be given dilators to keep it open and have been told that regular sex will help too. as my husband somethimes works away i thought i might as well have the pleasure of a vibrator to keep me 'open' rather than the boring dilators. please can you recommend a vibrator that is good for internal use as well as external and a lube that wont aggravate my skin, im looking for something like ky jelly but with a bit more tingle to it ;o).
    • LoveHoney - Carly: June 26, 2009 10:49
      Hi Ellie,

      If you read the help given above, you'll find lots of excellent advice about first time vibes! The blog gives top tips and descriptions of each type of toy - from realistic to miniature - so you're sure to find one you like!

      Many people like clitoral vibrators as they provide a quick and easy, yet amazingly sensual way to orgasm, so check out our special section with lots of Sale bargains here on LoveHoney: www.lovehoney.co.uk/store.cfm?cat=61

    • LoveHoney - Carly: June 26, 2009 10:58
      Hi Susan,

      Many tingle lubricants contain L'Arginine and glycerin which can often aggravate sensitive skin. However, Sliquid have created a wonderful range of lubes that do not contain L'Arginine, glycein or parabens and are therefore skin safe! I'd highly recommend Sliquid Sassy as it lasts for ages, feels silky smooth and always has a delightfully cool nature to it - www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=11373

      As for first time vibes that can be used internally and externally, you should first take a look at our Classic Vibrators range: www.lovehoney.co.uk/store.cfm?cat=5644
      These are designed to tease the clitoris but are the right shape for insertion soon. They come in lots of sizes, shapes, colours, speeds and functions, so you're sure to find something you like.

      If you want clitoral and vaginal stimulation at the same time then you need a Rabbit Vibrator! The Jessica Rabbit G-Spot Vibrator is ideal as it's slim, sexy, has multiple functions and provides sensual pleasure to both of your hot spots simultaneously: www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=15336

      Good lucka dn have fun!

    • Katie: September 02, 2009 03:56
      Hi, i have had 2 vibrators, one which is still working but the other recently broke. im finding that generally they do not have strong enough vibrations, and were wondering which u can suggest for really powerful clitoral stimulation as well as my g-spot, which i hav had difficulty stimulating.
      Thanks
      Katie
    • LoveHoney - Carly: September 02, 2009 08:43
      For super strong vibrators, take a look at the mains powered section' As these run off normal electricity, they're amazingly stimulating:
      www.lovehoney.co.uk/store.cfm?cat=62

      Similarly, why not take a look at the Vibratex Mystic Wand - it's the most powerful battery operated vibrator we've ever felt:

    • anahi: September 10, 2009 00:11
      i am a married women and i want to get a vibrator cause i always wanted one, but the problem is my husban ddoesnt like them. what should i dop???
    • LoveHoney - Carly: September 10, 2009 08:55
      Hi anahi!

      The key thing here is communication, communication, communication!

      Men often get worried that sex toys will become a replacement for them or that the sex toy will do a better job than he can - you just need to reassure him that that's not the case.

      Maybe have a calm but informal chat with your partner about vibrators, mentioning that a couple of your friends have them or that there was a study done recently that suggested that sex toys actually make relationships stronger. Find out why he doesn't like them and why he doesn't want you to have one. At the end of the day, it's your decision, but you need to show him that he can get in on the fun too by using it on you or having it used on him!
