Pleasure doesn't have to be expensive. There are lots of cheap vibrators that are high-quality and effective, making them great sex toys for beginners to experiment with.

"Vibrators allow an individual to learn what different sensations feel good for them, which ones are too overwhelming, and which ones don't do anything for them," says Jordan Soper CST, a board-certified psychologist and AASECT certified sex therapist based in Las Vegas, NV.

You can find plenty of cheap vibrators on Amazon and many of them are designed with motors that provide buzzing or rumbling sensations. You can also find quiet vibrators that feature suction technology (for those who enjoy more intense sensations). Plus, they’re not exclusive to the genitals; many people enjoy using them on other parts of the body, like the nipples. The only limitation is that you should not put a vibrator in your anus if it doesn't have a flared base, which ensures you'll be able to take it out, says Javay Frye-Nekrasova, certified sex educator based in Oregon. If you do use an anal toy, be sure to use anal lube.

Sexperts also recommend getting toys made of body-safe materials like silicone and avoiding toxic chemicals (phthalates) like those that may be found in jelly-based toys. However, that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice quality when going with a cheaper vibe. Here, find 15 of the best safe and affordable vibrators to upgrade your sex life!
