The Best Sex Toys for Women at a Glance

RELATED: The Best Sex Toys on Amazon, According to Enthusiastic Reviewers


1. Lovehoney Jessica Rabbit Vibrator

Most popular sex toy

The rabbit vibrator was made famous in the late 1990s thanks to Sex & the City, and, as it turns out, Charlotte's not the only one who is obsessed with it. These dual-action toys have a distinctive shape compared to other vibrators, featuring both a phallic shaft and a clitoral stimulator (which usually has rabbit "ears”) to create fluttery-yet-evocative sensations against the skin. This particular model from the Lovehoney Jessica Rabbit line is one of the most popular toys on the site (surprise, surprise). It boasts three different speeds and seven patterns for more personalized pleasure, and the shaft actually rotates at three separate speeds, too.

2. Adorime Rose Sucking Vibrator

Most discreet sex toy

If oral is your thing, look no further than this elegant rose-shaped vibrator. This powerful device may be small, fitting right in the palm of your hand, but one look at the reviews (there's nearly 19,000 of them to speak of!) will tell you it sure is mighty. And considering that it has seven pulsating suction patterns and speeds to get you there, it's no wonder. It's made with soft, hygienic silicone for your most sensitive parts, and its cute design is difficult to distinguish as a sex toy, making it as discreet as they come. Better yet? It's waterproof, so it can be used in the bathtub for some ultimate "you" time.

3. Le Wand Vibrating Massager

Most powerful sex toy

This wand vibrator—a type of sex toy that’s known for being incredibly powerful and having a rounded, rotating head that's attached to a thick handle—often gets overshadowed by the extremely similar Magic Wand. One advantage to using Le Wand over the latter, however, is that it has 20 vibration patterns (the rechargeable version of the Magic Wand only has four). You’ll get a lot of intense stimulation from this device, which can be a lot to handle if you’ve never used a vibrator before, but if you want a heavy-duty toy that can also be great for back, neck and shoulder massages, this could be perfect.

4. Liberator Wedge Sex Positioning Pillow

Best sex pillow

One minute, you’re locked in a steamy embrace with your partner. The next, you’re having to stop and readjust because one of you got a cramp or an ache in your back. The right sex positioning pillow, like this wedge from Liberator, can help to provide an important layer of support during intimate throwdowns that will help to keep the focus right where it belongs. Because it’s angled at 27 degrees, this item can also facilitate deeper penetration and accessibility, so those sex positions you thought were only possible in the Kama Sutra? Yeah, they’re about to become much more obtainable. This pillow also comes with a plush, machine-washable cover, which makes it easy to clean.

5. Manfly Low-Temperature Candles

Best sex candles

Some like it hot, and others prefer a little wax thrown in for good measure. You’re in for both—not to mention a really memorable night—with this low-temperature candle from Manfly. Made from medical-grade wax, it burns at 122 degrees Fahrenheit, which is plenty warm enough to really heat things up in the bedroom. You will want to exercise caution, however, as it could still hot enough to singe bare skin if used irresponsibly.

Buy It ($19)


6. Gläs Purple Rose Nubby Glass Dildo

Best glass sex toy

Cinderella may have had a glass slipper, but this glass dildo from Gläs is the stuff fairy tales are really made of. This toy also looks absolutely gorgeous in person—so visually stunning, in fact, that you might have to talk yourself out of keeping it out on display. Made of hypoallergenic and fracture-resistant glass, it's also specially designed to retain various temperatures of heat and coolness—something that's incredibly important for temperature play. You can stick it in the freezer for an icy shock, or, on the flip side, you could run it under hot water to make it warm to the touch. Another reason to give it a try is that its raised pleasure-increasing nubs make it incredibly versatile for all your sexual needs.

7. Lelo Gigi 2 G-Spot Vibrator

Best G-spot vibrator

G-spot orgasms aren’t always easy to achieve, but the Lelo Gigi 2 is specifically designed with this erogenous zone in mind. Made with a flatter-than-average arch at the tip, it can help you explore this elusive pleasure spot, one play session at a time. There are four button controls and eight different vibration patterns, plus, it’s made from supple, body-safe silicone that's ultra-smooth to the touch. To make the most out of the Gigi 2, the brand recommends starting slow by positioning it upside down against your clitoris, which can help you ease into G-spot stimulation—especially if you’ve never tried a toy like this before.

Buy It ($182 $111)


8. Satisfyer Pro 2 Clitoral Stimulator

Best clitoral sex toy

If you treat yourself to just one new item off this list, let it be the Satisfyer Pro 2—a mega-popular clitoral stimulator which uses pressure-wave technology to deliver suction-like sensations to all your secret sweet spots. Designed to recreate the sensation of receiving oral sex, this rechargeable device is equipped with 11 settings, comes with a USB charging cable and features a thick, silicone-tipped head, which can form a soft-but-firm seal over the clitoris or other areas of the body that you position the device over. It's also waterproof, so it could be an exciting way to add a little more splish to your splash.

$50; $33 at Amazon


9. Akstore Jeweled Plugs

Best sex toy for beginners

Looking for a gentle way to ease into backdoor stimulation? This set of three differently sized jeweled plugs from Akstore is pretty-but-practical, and could be a terrific investment. Available in 12 different gem colors, each one has a tapered tip for tender insertion. The sparkly end serves a functional purpose, too, as it’s thick and circular enough that it’ll help things from jostling around. While these metal-plated plugs might seem daunting by virtue (they’re not stainless steel, as several reviewers point out), the advantage to using heavy metal is that it's somewhat easier to clean and maintain than silicone and safe to use with all types of lubricants.

10. We-Vibe Chorus Couples' Vibrator

Best remote-controlled sex toy

Whether bae is right next to you on the couch or traveling across the country for a work trip, the We-Vibe Chorus can help to bridge the gap and bring the two of you closer together. This silicone toy has a bendable C-shape and is intended for simultaneous clitoral and G-spot stimulation. You can use it solo or with a partner, and the toy’s three speeds and seven patterns could provide extra pleasure for a partner during penetration as well, as they’ll be able to feel it too. The Chorus easily connects to We-Vibe’s free app, so you can share control of the device, no matter how near or far. Even the remote control is innovative—the tighter you grasp it, the more intense the toy’s vibrations become.

Buy It ($200)


11. YTOY Panty Vibrator

Quietest sex toy

This vibrator goes in your panties and can be controlled from up to 50 feet away, providing the ultimate in naughty fun for you and your partner. With 12 different strength settings, you can really go to your maximum, as the quiet vibrations can go undetected at even the strongest setting for a spicy sexual rendezvous anywhere you may choose.

12. Zumio S Precision Clitoral Stimulator

Most versatile sex toy

At first glance, it might be easy to mistake the Zumio S for an electric toothbrush, but don’t let initial impressions fool you—this unique device offers a lot more than meets the eye. Slim and discreet, it doesn’t look like your average sex toy, and that’s one of its major selling points. Another is the way it delivers stimulation. Like other models in the brand’s line of similarly shaped devices, this uses a rotating circular motion rather than vibrations to deliver ripples of sensation throughout the body. This particular piece also boasts a shorter stem and rounder tip, which means the rotational patterns will be smaller and gentler on skin. Although the Zumio S is technically marketed as a clitoral stimulator, it can work wonders for all-over body massage too—especially along erogenous zones.

$135 $108 at Amazon


13. Lovehoney Curved Silicone Suction Cup Dildo, 6 Inch

Best classic sex toy

When you’re shopping for a sex toy like this, one of the most important things to actually consider beyond size is whether or not it has a good suction-cup base. This smooth, 6-inch curved model from LoveHoney has a sturdy one, which means you can stick it to the bottom of a tub, against a tile wall or another hard surface and it will stay firmly in place as you do your business. To step things up even further, it comes with room for a bullet vibrator in its base to give you the best of both worlds.

14. Tenga Iroha Lipstick Vibrator

Best sex toy for travel

As a brand, Tenga is largely known for its disposable silicone strokers, which come in plastic, egg-shaped containers and are designed to fit in the palm of one’s hand. But the Iroha line is possibly its best-kept secret, as these small, bullet-style vibrators are surprisingly powerful and made from a pillowy-soft silicone, which can be a pleasure just to touch. This lipstick vibrator is ultra-discreet and can easily fit in a bag or suitcase, making it a solid choice for travel. While it is battery-operated (a bit of a bummer, considering so many sex toys nowadays are USB-rechargeable), the brand claims it can run for up to five hours at a time, plus, it’s waterproof, so you can take it with you from the bedroom to the shower and everywhere in between.

15. Dame Eva II

Best hands-free sex toy

Like the We-Vibe Chorus and other couples' vibrators, the Eva II is a wearable device. But that’s about all this remarkable toy has in common with others on the market. Intended to be non-invasive, it features a small, rounded body and two flexible “wings,” which are meant to straddle the clitoris for an entirely hands-free experience. This toy isn’t app-enabled like the Chorus, but its compact size and rumbly (rather than buzzy) motor make it a fantastic option for those searching for deep, toe-curling orgasms, either via solo or partnered play.
