How to Masturbate with Your Vibrator

Since reading our blog about buying your perfect vibrator, you made a decision and your vibrator has arrived. Now it’s time to explore…

Using a vibrator for the first time can be quite daunting. You’re probably used to using your fingers for pleasure, so transitioning to something bigger (that also vibrates!) can feel like a big next step.

That being so, we wanted to share some tips about how to make the most of masturbating with your vibrator. Masturbation tips that we hope will make your first experience as pleasurable as possible.

No pressure

A lot of women we speak to use a vibrator like Crescendo to help them reach climax. However, it’s really important you don’t preoccupy your mind with this end goal. Yes, of course orgasms are great, but self-love has so many other benefits.

Firstly, it helps you understand your body and discover erogenous zones, it helps you relax, it de-stresses you, it makes you feel sexually empowered and it can improve your sexual experiences in the long run.

So our advice is, stop pressuring yourself. Putting too much stress on the specific goal of climax may stifle your ability to do so.

How to Masturbate With Your Vibrator: set the mood

Set the mood

As we all know, getting in ‘the mood’ doesn’t happen with a flick of a switch. Orgasms can act as great stress relievers, however it can be hard to embrace them when you’re feeling tense, or haven’t set aside time.

Self-pleasure is important, and a wonderful experience if you get it right. For your first time, be sure to set aside adequate time to make yourself feel good.

Start off by dimming the lights, perhaps putting on some calming music, perhaps find some erotica to read or watch, and when you’re feeling relaxed enough, use your fingers to touch yourself.

This is a time to treat in yourself – so there’s no need to rush. Close your eyes and indulge in the moment.

Get a helping hand

Once you’re feeling a little frisky, it’s time to turn on your vibrator. But before you do so, remember that lube is your best friend. Lube will make your vibrator feel much more natural, easier to insert, more pleasureable and a lot more fun for you.

Make sure you research the type of lube you need to use. For example, if you’re using a silicone vibrator, you should use a water-based lube rather than a silicone based lube. Similiarly, if you want to use a condom (for extra safety and cleanliness), you shouldn’t be using an oil-based lube.

Be sure to pay attention to the ingredients in the lube you choose – try using a lube with natural ingredients (perhaps even organic) so you’re being as kind to your skin as possible.

Explore your body

For most women, the clitoris is their most sensitive area. In fact for the majority of women, clitoral stimulation is the only way they will reach orgasm. If you’re one of these people, you can use  your vibrator to tease your clitoris and vulva without inserting, if you’d prefer. 

We made Crescendo bendable so that you could have both internal and clitoral stimulation at the same time.

Before you insert your vibrator, turn it  to a low intensity and gently press it against your clitoris – some people with vaginas like to do this over their underwear as direct stimulation can be a little too intense.  

You can also use this same technique to tease your nipples. Gentle stimulation like this will increase your ability to climax, and make your experience more intense and pleasurable in the long run.

Slowly but surely

Now you should really be in the mood. Your clitoris is pulsating, your nipples are erect… it’s time to feel exactly how good your vibrator can be.

Start by inserting it slowly, and play with the vibration patterns. You may want to start with a slow, rumbly pattern until you’ve become acquainted with how to hold and insert your vibrator.

There are lots of different ways to insert your vibrator; some women like to lay on their back with their legs spread, for others laying on their front is more comfortable. If you have a bendable vibrator, you may want to angle it in a way that makes the vibrator hands-free, that way you can sit on it, enjoy the vibrations and use your hands at the same time!

Now you can turn your vibrator to a more intense setting, and enjoy as the vibrations flood through.

How to Masturbate With Your Vibrator: try different techniques

Try different techniques

Once you and your vibrator have spent some time together, you can start trying different techniques. For example, some women like to engage their muscles during masturbation as this really helps them reach orgasm – this is because your pelvic muscles become tighter around the vibrator meaning you will feel the vibrations better.

You could also try teasing yourself until you’re on the edge of orgasm, then stop before it actually happens. This can give you hours of pleasure!

Lots of Crescendo users like to use the MysteryApp to enhance their masturbation experience. By creating their own custom vibration patterns, they can find new ways to orgasm every time.

Once your first experience with a vibrator ends, we’re sure that you’ll finally understand what all the hype is about. We hope you’re left feeling satisfied and sexually awakened, already excitedly waiting for your next self-love date.
