The 42 Best Vibrators for All Kinds of Stimulation, According to Sex Experts

24 total views

VIBRATORS ARE a gift to women and vagina-owning people everywhere. They take the already titillating act of sex and turn it into an orgasmic overload of pleasure. If you’re searching for the best vibrator, you don’t have to look very far. There are so many options available for every body type and preference.

Like other sex toys, vibrators enhance sex by stimulating the vulva and vagina in ways the human body simply can’t. Using your hands can be fun, but it frankly doesn’t compare to the power of a vibrator. Plus, you can get sore pretty fast.

While some guys feel intimidated bringing a vibrator into the bedroom, true pros know that vibrators elevate the entire sexual experience. The best vibrators for women focus on her pleasure, which, in return, also pleases her partner to know that she’s enjoying herself.

But which vibrators are the best? There are tons of options out there, from the trusty ol’ Magic Wand that’s been helping people cum since the ’60s to cutting-edge products that heat up, pulse to the beat of music, and thrust on their own. There are vibrators that stimulate the clitoris, vibrators that hit the G-spot, and vibrators that do both—even both at once. All of which is to say, if you’ve never bought a vibrator before, or even if you’re looking for a new vibe to add to your collection, the volume of choices can be a bit mind-boggling.

Not sure what kind of vibrator is best for you? The person who’s going to be using the toy should consider what feels good for them and go from there, says sex and relationship therapist Rachel Wright, LMFT.

“Think about what body parts you want to stimulate, where you like to be touched, and what types of sensations you like,” she says. “For example, if you know that you like to have your clitoris stimulated, this is a great opportunity to get a toy or pleasure aid that can stimulate your clitoris in a way that the human body just can’t.” (FYI, an oft-cited survey of 1,055 cisgender women published in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy found that 37% of cis women need clit stimulation to have an orgasm, and a further 36% said they didn’t need it, but it made their orgasms better—just another reason to have a vibrator in the bedroom!)

If you’re curious about a particular vibrator, read the product description and look at photos to learn more about what it’s best used for. Some are designed to stimulate the clitoris during penetrative sex, some are best for other kinds of partner play, and some are ideal for masturbation, Wright says. Plus, some partnered toys are geared toward penetrative sex involving a penis and a vagina, which isn’t how all couples get down.

Since everyone’s looking for different kinds of pleasure, we listed our editors’ and experts’ favorite vibrators in nine categories listed below. Whatever you end up playing with, don’t forget the water-based lube!

Best Bullet Vibrators

These vibrators get their name because they’re shaped kinda like bullets. They’re designed for external stimulation: primarily of the clitoris, but hey, try them on the nipples while you’re at it. The small size makes them approachable for beginners, not to mention ideal for travel.

Best Massage Wand Vibrators

Massage wands tend to be bigger vibrators that deliver serious power. They “have a strong, often rumbly, vibration,” Wright says. Given how intense they are, wands are great for solo play. If you are using one with a partner, you’re better off focusing on the toy than trying to squeeze it into another form of sex, she adds. Most of the time, “it’s the wand show.”

Wearable vibrators can be tricky because there’s no guarantee they’ll align with the user’s anatomy—or that they’ll stay in place once they’re in.

Best Pinpoint Vibrators

With their teeny-tiny tips, pinpoint vibrators “are really great for getting intense stimulation exactly where you want it,” Wright says. “Pinpointed toys are often geared towards clitoral stimulation, but because of the design, they can be great on the nipples, collar bone, belly, and other erogenous zones.”

The little ball is the standout of the three attachments on this versatile vibe. It’s about the size of a blueberry, so the stimulation is targeted without being too intense—a great beginner pinpoint vibrator, and with alternate attachments if the ball isn’t your thing. Also, not for nothing, people will compliment the toy’s luxurious design.

You want precision? Ethel will give you precision. The tiny, hard tip rotates instead of vibrates, and the experience is intense—in a very, very good way. This is the toy for people who want to go all-in on pinpointed pleasure.


Crave Vesper

What it slightly lacks in power, the Vesper more than makes up for in coolness and convenience. This slim metal vibrator doubles as a necklace, making it the ideal sex party accessory, incognito travel-friendly toy, or sexy gift for a partner.

It’s the only vibrator endorsed by the legendary Dr. Ruth Westheimer, so it has to be good. “It was created by a Swiss scientist [Philippe Wood] who’s not alive anymore; he’s the same guy who [invented the] electric toothbrush,” Westheimer told Men’s Health. “I right away thought, hallelujah! Whoever can come up with the electric toothbrush can come up with an electric vibrator!”

Best Temperature Play Vibrators

Lora DiCarlo Sway

There’s something for everyone with this heated vibe, which has dual ends for G-spot and prostate stimulation.

Best Rabbit Vibrators

“Many rabbit vibrators stimulate the clitoris while stimulating the internal portions of the vulva and vagina, including the internal part of the clitoris that we can’t see,” Wright says. (FYI, the clitoris is shaped like a wishbone; that little nub at the top of the vulva is just the tip.) “By stimulating the internal parts and the external parts of the vulva, vagina, and clitoris, you may have what’s considered a blended orgasm.”

G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator

The curve at the end of the shaft really hits the spot, and the rabbit attachment is big and firm enough that it stimulates the clitoris at most angles you could possibly hold the toy. Hello, blended orgasm.

Nova 2

With most rabbit vibrators, you have to hope and pray the two arms align to hit the G-spot and external clit simultaneously. Not with the Nova 2; the highlight of this toy is the bendable internal arm, which users can customize to whatever angle feels most out-of-this-world.



You know that “come hither” motion you’ve heard about for stimulating the G-spot? This toy can do it for you. It doesn’t just vibrate; the internal arm can also “wave” back and forth, putting feel-good pressure on the front wall of the vagina.

Jessica Rabbit Vibrator

With over 1,400 five-star reviews on Lovehoney and a relatively low price, this 10-function toy is the perfect option for rabbit vibe beginners.

What to Consider Before You Buy

With so many options, it can be hard to choose! Before you buy a vibrator, you should have an idea of what kind of stimulation you enjoy—internal, external, or both! If you’re new to the magical world of vibrators, you can’t go wrong with a bullet vibrator. They’re often inexpensive and less intimidating than other models. If you’re like external stimulation, you might enjoy a wand or a suction vibrator. If internal stimulation is your jam, look for a curved vibrating dildo that promises G-spot orgasms. For those who just can’t choose, a rabbit is a great all-around pleaser.

What Are The Types Of Vibrators for Women?

Women are lucky in that they can have two different types of orgasms: external and internal. Most vibrators are specialized to achieve one or the other, and the kind of orgasm you enjoy depends on the person and their specific anatomy. Generally speaking, there are four types of vibrators: wand vibrators, bullet vibrators, suction devices, and rabbit vibrators. There are many other vibrators that women can get pleasure from, such as vibrating cock rings or anal toys.
