    “I’ve had many clients swear that they won’t use something simply because of how it looks. Their immediate reaction to it is usually something like, ‘Too big’,  ‘The colour isn’t nice’, or ‘It looks cheap’.

    “How do you like to pleasure yourself? Do you normally rub your clit or around your vulva? What would you wish your vibrator could do to give your hand a rest?

    “Do you plan to use this vibrator alone or with your partner? It can be fun letting someone else control your sexual pleasure, but if you’ll be using it by yourself, you won’t have to take another person’s preferences into consideration.”

    “A quality vibrator can be more expensive than you might think, but you should remember that you get what you pay for. While plastic vibrators are cheap, they aren’t always an ideal choice as they erode over them and the material can be absorbed into your body. What you want is a body-safe, medical-grade silicon vibrator of the highest standard that will not potentially disrupt your hormones.”
