A few of my favourite things...Vibrators!

by Shawna Scott September 08, 2014

Some people have asked since it's now "officially" the run-up to Christmas here in Ireland (which I still refuse to believe till it's at least past Halloween, and just for the record, you people are insane!) if I would be kind enough to post about my favourite vibrators for gift ideas. Sure thing!

When I recommend vibrators to people, I always try to ask them questions about what types of sensations, size, and speed they like as well as help them figure out what aspects and features are most important to them in a vibrator like...

"Would you prefer a lots of vibration patterns with a few buttons, or 1 button with only constant vibration?"

"Do you need external stimulation, internal stimulation, or both?"

"What colours do you like?"

Believe it or not, many people are quite picky about vibrator colours. I'm one of them. But since I don't have you here to ask you these sorts of questions, I'll just have to wing it. Though feel free to email me at hello@sexsiopa.ie with any questions you might have about a product. I'm always here at my computers...ALWAYS!

Minna Limon - Words cannot describe how much I love this vibrator, and it was love at first sight. Minna ran an uber-successful crowdfunding campaign last year to get the product off the ground, and finally at the start of this year, I was able to get my grubby little mits on one. The squeezable interface is similar to it's predecessor, the Ola, but even cleaner and with 1 button, instead of 2. For those of you who have no idea what I'm on about, the harder you squeeze the Limon, the stronger the vibrations get. If you press it's singular button once it will record any pattern you play into it. Press it again, and it was lock that pattern into place. It's simply a bit of pure genius. End of story. The Minna Limon is available for €120 including free discreet shipping.

Lelo Mona 2 - This vibrator is the stuff of legends for people who love their G-spot, but don't let that deter you from using it externally. It rocks at that as well! Lelo must have put some sort of black magic into the mix when they made the Mona, because it's one of the rumbliest toys out there, and yet is ridiculously quiet considering how powerful it is. It's shape and size is big without being too intimidating. However if you're not used to internal stimulation, I might try something smaller first like the Lelo Gigi 2. This one of our bestsellers and you can buy the Lelo Mona 2 for €130 including free discreet shipping.

Leaf Fresh - It's beauty is in it's simplicity. If you're not fussed about loads of vibration patterns and just want a toy that's going to 1 thing very well, this is the toy for you. It has 1 button on it's side and the longer you hold down on it, the stronger the vibrations get till they max out. The shape is pocket sized and discreet. Unless you knew what it was, you'd never know what it was, so it's great if you're living with someone(s) who isn't someone(s) you're sleeping with. It's unique heart-shape also makes the vibrations more versatile. On the pointed side, you get stronger or focused vibrations, while on the broader side they're lighter and more spread out. Also, it's shaped like a heart, and that's just adorable! You can grab the Leaf Fresh for €100 including free discreet shipping.

 



Lelo Mia 2- The Lelo Mia 2 is one of my best sellers, and it's not hard to see why. Like the Leaf Fresh, it's super discreet and pocket size, approximately the size of a large lipstick or mascara. But what I love most about the Mia 2 is the sheer nerdiness of it. It's USB rechargeable, so again unless you knew what it was, it could easily be mistaken for a flash drive. This also means that you'll never have to worry about travel adapters ever again...well at least for your vibrator. I typically recommend the Mia 2 to first time toy owners for this reason, but because it has a nice, wide range of vibration speeds, it's also great for vibrator connoisseurs as well. The Lelo Mia 2 is €60 including free discreet shipping.



So there you have it. Those are my top 4 vibrator picks for Christmas 2014, each amazing in it's own little way, like some sort of sexy, vibrating snowflake. However, like I said at the start, if you've any questions about a particular toy or need further recommendations, do feel free to get in touch at hello@sexsiopa.ie.
