Selecting the best vibrators for women is highly subjective, but we believe we've nailed it. How'd we go about finding the best of the current selection? We obviously couldn’t go to the store and try them all out. And while we’re all for being sex-positive, exploring sexual meditation and even sex magick, we weren't about to ask about everyone's favorite devices on our office Slack channel. So we created an anonymous poll to ask women about their favorite vibrators, why they like them and whether they’d recommend them to others. Then we followed up with a Q & A with a successful California-based sex toys maker. Here's the lowdown on what's tops in the vibrator marketplace, and how to find what's going to work best for you. And, a note: While researching this story, we found out that all the toys are delivered in nondescript packaging, so you'll never need to worry about SEX TOYS INTERNATIONAL or some such being stamped on the outside of your box. (Your silicone somethings are nobody's business but your own.)

Meet the Expert

Chad Braverman, COO at Doc Johnson, a leading U.S. manufacturer of sex toys.

What Should You Look for When Choosing a Vibrator? 

“There are so many options in shapes, speeds and vibrations, choosing one really comes down to personal preference. If something seems too basic or too much for you, keep looking,” Braverman says. “This is not a one-size-fits-all situation. One thing to look for every time though, no matter how many speeds or functions a vibrator has, shoppers should always consider the material. Non-porous options like silicone should always be prioritized, because no lubes, fluids or dust can sink into the material.” General categories of vibrators include bullet, rabbit, clitoral, massage wands, G spot, suction and wearable. Braverman says his company’s most popular products are the bullet, rabbit, and clitoral suction models.

What Are Some Tips for Choosing A Vibrator for Maximum Fun?

"A lot of times people can overlook the simple bullet vibe, because it doesn’t seem intense enough. However, small and discreet options can be taken wherever a user needs, and they pack a punch. They can be used on the clit or internally, with a partner or without. Additionally, it’s important not to forget to look at the material. While there are infinite cheap vibrator options available, it’s important to get one that’s safe for your body. We recommend silicone, which is soft and non-porous, so completely worth the price tag."

Finally, the Age-Old Vibrator Question: Battery-Operated or Rechargeable?

“It’s important not to overlook the necessity of a battery-powered option,” Braverman says. “There’s nothing worse than your vibrator dying while you’re in the middle of things and waiting 45 minutes for it to recharge seems impossible. With batteries, you can replace in a minute and keep going.”

  • Battery Life: four hours

The Firefighter from Smile Makers is the go-to of one satisfied respondent: "I love the shape of this guy for some self-care time by myself or with my husband for a couple extra Os. It has four speeds and a couple pulsation modes. If you're like me and prefer a steady pace, you won't need the extra modes anyway."

Super Rabbit Vibrator

With 12 speeds and eight vibration modes, you're sure to stay occupied for multiple Os. I like that I can use this one in the shower, too, because it's completely waterproof."

Favorite All-in-One

3. Doc Johnson Tryst V2

Doc Johnson

  • Why We Love It: can be utilized multiple ways solo with a partner, separate motors at each end
  • Material: silicone
  • Size: 4.49 x 1.26 x 5.98 inches
  • Battery: 90 minutes between charges

Multi-functional, this vibrator can be used solo or with a partner and in different positions and configurations…it’s the Choose Your Own Adventure of sex toys. The flexible silicone arms can be bent into position as a c-ring or wrapped around one another to make a shaft for internal use. There are three motors, one in each arm and one in the central body, and the middle section can be used as a clitoral or vulvar stimulator. It’s waterproof and has a remote control, so you won’t be having to manipulate the device directly on the body—great for ease of use.

Perfect for Vulva Stimulation

4. Smile Makers The Ballerina

Smile Makers

  • Why We Love It: soft and squishy, strong six-speed motor
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 3.7 x 2.4 x 1.9 inches
  • Battery Life: numerous sessions with one charge

"This is a refreshing change-up from phallic-shaped, penetrative vibrators," says one fan. "It's whisper-quiet and made to vibrate (in six pulsing patterns) against the whole outside of the vulva, which really disarmingly relaxes, then sends you." Not only that, but "I've been known to use this topically on my neck and shoulders, with a little CBD balm, when I'm tense."

Great Multi-Purpose Toy

5. Lelo Tor 2


  • Why We Love It: simple two-button interface, wearable or can be used as massager
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 2.4 x 1.7 x 1.7 inches
  • Battery Life: up to 90 minutes on one charge

This c-ring is great for couples—it's made to slip over the penis to heighten pleasure for male wearers—so we were surprised when a female user told us she enjoys solo play with the six vibrating functions and soft silicone texture. The rigid square bullet vibrator top "feels great for external stimulation, whether it's cupped in my hand or rubbing between my boyfriend and me when he's wearing it." Bonus: The handsome matte green silicone material makes it look like sculpture.

Unique Wearable Design

6. We-Vibe Jive


  • Why We Love It: solo or couples play, eight vibration modes
  • Material: silicone free from phthalates, BPA or latex
  • Size: 3.6 x 2.5 x 1.4 inches
  • Battery Life: up to two hours

This vibrator has an external, flexible arm that rests outside the body and an internal vibrator that the wearer inserts and wears under her panties and clothes. "This is so fun for solo play, since it has ten vibration modes and fits inside you, where it totally finds your G-spot, and also outside, resting against your clitoris," says one reviewer. The waterproof device is controllable by the app, which means you can decide on the speed at home or cede control to a partner long-distance.

Super for Muscle Massage

7. Plusone Personal Massager


  • Why We Love It: waterproof, ten vibration modes
  • Material: silicone
  • Size: 3.69 x 1.69 x 7.63 inches
  • Battery Life: rechargeable lithium ion battery

One woman told us she likes this massager for the shape and the power, and after reading more about it, we can understand why. The unique design is described as “compact, yet powerful,” with ten different settings and a battery that lasts up to four hours. What more could you ask for?

Super Mini Massager

8. Shibari Mini Halo

  • Why We Love It: flexible head, waterproof
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 7.8 x 1.6 x 1.6 inches
  • Battery Life: two hours per charge

This baby has range—as in 20 different speeds and eight different vibration patterns. Users praise it for its battery life, affordable price point and super-quiet motor. And with more than 13,610 five-star reviews on Amazon, it’s pretty clear this wand massager is well loved.

Outstanding Air-Pulse Movement

9. Satisfyer Pro 2


  • Why We Love It: innovative air pulsing, concentrated clitoral stimulation
  • Material: ABS plastic, medical-grade silicone
  • Size: 6.5 x 1.8 x 2.6 inches
  • Battery Life: two-and-a-half hours per charge

The Satisfyer Pro 2 was by far the most loved in our poll, and here's why: According to the brand, it has “tingling negative pressure, paired with exciting pulsations, that stimulates the clitoris without contact in a previously unimagined way.” A poll respondent agreed: “It’s just such a different sensation.” Did we mention it’s super quiet and has 11 different intensity settings?

Ideal for Design Snobs

10. Maude Vibe


  • Why We Love It: minimalist design, three vibration speeds, featured in MoMA gift shop
  • Material: RoHs passed / platinum-grade silicone
  • Size: 1.5 x 4.9 inches
  • Battery Life: up to two-and-a-half hours

“It’s discreet—not hot pink—and could almost be mistaken for a piece of art. It has three speeds, comes with a little carrying case and can definitely be taken for travel,” said one woman we polled. It’s one of the most affordable toys on our list, but make sure you’re diligent about charging it, one fan warns.

  • Why We Love It: waterproof, 12 settings, angled smaller arm
  • Material: body-safe silicone, ABS plastic
  • Size: 8.6 x 2.9 x 1.7 inches total, 4.3 inches insertable
  • Battery Life: up to four hours on a charge

“I don’t love the price, but this thing is un-f*cking-believable,” one woman told us. At $160 on sale, this one is pretty pricey—but according to its fans, it’s worth every penny. The dual-action internal and external massager has 12 different settings (from a teasing murmur to a satisfying pulse) and a whisper-quiet motor.

Great for Beginners

12. Smile Makers The Billionaire

Smile Makers

  • Why We Love It: simple to operate, four speeds and two pulsation modes
  • Material: cryogenically polished silicone imported from Japan
  • Size: 5.7 x 1.3 x 1.3 inches
  • Battery Life: AA battery lasts four hours

“It’s compact, cute and quiet,” one woman wrote about this lavender-hued wand. “It’s pretty soft and light, and I like that it has six settings to choose from.” She also likes the fact that it’s sold at places you might not typically expect to find a vibrator, like Free People, and hopes that will encourage people who would ordinarily feel too nervous to buy one. We couldn’t agree more.

Perfect for Blended Orgasms

13. Diosa by Bellesa


  • Why We Love It: stimulates your G-spot and clitoris simultaneously, waterproof
  • Material: liquid silicone technology
  • Size: 4-inch girth, 6.5-inch length
  • Battery Life: two hours per charge

Bellesa describes this best-seller as “a favorite of beginners and experts alike,” which is something we can definitely get behind. It offers dual stimulation and seven different vibration settings, and it’s 100 percent waterproof, if that’s your thing. One anonymous fan told us, “I’d absolutely recommend this vibe to other women. It’s not too expensive, easy to keep clean and easy to charge up.”

Suitable for Sensitive Clitorises

14. Je Joue Mimi

Je Joue

  • Why We Love It: low-frequency vibrations penetrate and stimulate, extra-squishy tip
  • Material: medical-grade silicone
  • Size: 5.5 x 1.6 x 6.5 inches
  • Battery Life: two hours play between charges

Designed by London-based luxury sex toy company Je Joue, the Mimi offers five different speeds and six different patterns of vibration, so you’re bound to find the right fit. “It’s a great size for clitoral stimulation: It’s easy to hold and lies nicely,” an anonymous fan shared. “It’s also great for partnered play as it is pretty small and easy to incorporate.”

Great Wand Vibrator

15. VIM Vibrating Wand


  • Why We Love It: flexible neck, lightweight handle, two-year warranty
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 2.4 x 12.3 inches
  • Battery Life: six hours use between charges

This recent introduction from German-based Fun Factory iterates the classic wand vibrator to make the style quieter, lighter and overall better for sensitive clitorises. “I'm not usually a wand person, the old-school ones are like jet engines to me and to use one I'd have to put a thick comforter in between the toy and my body,” writes one reviewer. “Not with this one. It still has a ton of power which is great for my less-sensitive partner, but it goes down low enough for me and stays super rumbly.” Another innovation is the spring-loaded head, which bends as you apply pressure and allows you to angle the movement with less arm and wrist strain. And along with the five speeds, there are three auto-programs, a deep orgasm, a quick intense orgasm and an edging program (that last is the one that builds and ebbs intensity repeatedly until climax).

Super Silicone Alternative

16. Doc Johnson Lucid Dream 14

Doc Johnson

  • Why We Love It: battery operated, simple operation
  • Material: body-safe thermoplastic elastomer
  • Size: 8.75 x 5.5 x 1.75 inches with 7.5 insertable length
  • Battery Life: 4 hours

This waterproof plastic G-spot vibrator comes in three candy colors (pink, yellow and purple), and is not only well-priced but offers a body-safe alternative to silicone-skin vibrators. This vibrator is made of TPE, that’s thermoplastic elastomer, a molded plastic that is safe to use with silicone-based lubricants. The motor in the tip of the device delivers a solid rumbling to the G-spot when inserted, or to the clitoris when used as an external massager. And the two AA batteries that power it mean that even in a worst case scenario—that it runs out of power in the middle of use—it’s easy to just pop two new batteries in and continue.

Great Sculptural Design

17. Fun Factory Ocean Rabbit Vibrator

Fun Factory

  • Why We Love It: six speeds and six patterns, enables G-spot or prostate play
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 5.63 in x 1.42 with 4.33 insertable length
  • Battery Life: two AAA batteries

A versatile, beginner-friendly design that’s too pretty to hide in a drawer is what sets this mini vibe apart from the pack. Its motor ratchets from a soft hum to a powerful buzz, and the AAA batteries mean you’ll never need to wait for it to re-charge. You can insert the long wave, meanwhile the short wavelet can massage you externally, front or back. “It is totally great for such a small, battery operated toy!” writes one user. “It is sooo quiet!!”

Tops for Flexibility

18. Unbound Bender

  • Why We Love It: creative design, ten speeds and patterns
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 7.5 inches
  • Battery Life: two hours between charges

Suitable for G-spot, clitoral or overall external stimulation, this vibrator is a great way to hit exactly that spot (since everyone’s body is different). Safe for insertion and silky-soft and strong for external use, the only limit to what the Unbound Bender can to is the limit of your imagination.

  • Why We Love It: bulbous tip hits g-spot, three steady intensities and seven patterns
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 8.5 inches long with 4.5 insertable inches, 1.5 inches at thickest point
  • Battery: rechargeable, with battery-life display

We appreciate the hustle this little guy shows—not only does he have a swollen tip to let users find the exact G-spot they’re after, he heats up! The concept is that, by warming to slightly above body temperature, this device encourages blood flow and muscle relaxation, both of which help the good times roll. It comes with its own travel pouch and has a travel lock so you’re guaranteed no suspicious humming emanates from your carry-on.

Outstanding attachment selection

20. Zalo Kyro Wand Massager


  • Why We Love It: G-spot and clitoral/nipple stimulating attachment, lightweight
  • Material: Dow Corning food-level silicone with exclusive Softek™ surface coating
  • Size: 11.46 x 2.11 massage head diameter
  • Battery: two hours

This is a lot of vibrator ability in a lightweight body that has glam styling to boot. Part of Zalo’s Legend collection of vibrators that come in rich jewel tones with gold filagree styling reminiscent of the Pharoah, this wand vibrator has a flexible neck, which heightens the six speeds and five vibration modes. The largish-round head can be used for external stimulation per most wands, but with this number you can add a bit of water-based lube (remember, silicone lube on silicone toys is discouraged), then slip on the smaller bulbed G-spot accessory for penetration, or pop on the forked nipple/clitoral accessory for soft surface stroking. “I love the nipple/clit stimulating head that can be added to the wand the most,” writes one reviewer. “My partner loved it as well. Overall great wand. Easy to hold and use.” Bonus: Inside the discreet shipping box, the vibrator comes tastefully packaged in a box that’s suitable for gifting.

Cutest Vibrator

21. Banana Emojibator™


  • Why We Love It: comic (but effective) relief, ten settings
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 4.60" x 1.22"
  • Battery: one AAA battery

Don’t overthink it: This is a vibrator that’s shaped like the banana emoji. It has ten settings and is suitable to use in the bath or shower and it’s battery-operated, so no one will say “Hey, why is that banana plugged in on your nightstand?” Also, the compact size is all you need…plus, it’s a great gag gift or funny moment when you pull out with your lover.

Fun Novelty Gift

22. Sexology Pussy Power Bullet


  • Why We Love It: cute styling, beginner-friendly
  • Material: hypoallergenic silicone
  • Size: 5.3 x 2.1 inches (3.7 insertable length)
  • Battery: two hours

“This is the first toy I've purchased, says one reviewer. “It's small and easy to use. I really like the fact that's it's rechargeable,” summing up the appeal of this straight-to-the-point bullet vibrator. The pink color and feline imagery are cute, but users say its steady purr gets the job done. We like it for travel, too.

Tops on Social Media

23. Allovü Rose Vibrator


  • Why We Love It: multi-use, compact size
  • Material: waterproof, nine vibration and nine suction settings
  • Size: 3.7 x 3.11 x 3.03 inches
  • Battery: two hours

This silicone rose is all over TikTok, with happy users brandishing their little fake flower friends. While it looks like an artificial rose that you might find in the aisles of Michael’s, after you charge this baby for two and a half hours and use its puffing tech on your nipples and/or clitoris, anyone named Michael will be the last thing on your mind. “I started Prozac and started having difficulty climaxing,” says one reviewer. “I bought this toy and left my body. I'm talking legs shaking, sweat dripping, soak the sheets orgasms. My husband now calls this his ‘associate.’ I tell everyone about this toy now…it’s rechargeable, waterproof and has different settings.” The noise of this mini small vibrator is less than 50 decibels, so you can enjoy this discreetly.

Tops for Travel

24. Coco de Mer Pleasure No. 1 The Seed

Coco de Mer

  • Why We Love It: luxe zipped case, ten speeds
  • Material: silicone
  • Size: 3 x 2.5 inches
  • Battery: 60 minutes

Nothing says “I’m an international woman of the world” more than packing a clitoral vibrator that’s based on the national fruit of the Seychelles. That’s the inspo for The Seed, a palm-sized, ten-speed vibe that is made to nestle around the labia and thrum with dual motors. The silicone body’s rich brown silicone matches the elegant brown vegan leather case, and both the toy’s accent and case’s zipper are rich gold. It’s pricey, but in the hustle and bustle of travel, it’s nice to know you have a relaxing and indulgent treat waiting for you when you finally reach your destination.

Exceptional Hands-Free Functionality

25. Dame Eva Vibrator


  • Why We Love It: flex-arm design, fun colors, three-year warranty
  • Material: medical-grade silicone
  • Size: 2.4" W (wings included) x 1.7" H x 1.1" D
  • Battery: one hour at highest setting

At the end of your life of sexploits, don’t be the person lying on your death bed thinking, Why didn’t I try that cute little vibrator with the wings that’s supposed to stay put during coupled sex? We’re talking about the innovative Eva vibrator, which its makers explain as being created because “holding a toy in place can be distracting and even counterproductive. Eva leaves your hands free so that you can be fully in the moment.” The teensy (1.7 inches high) little device has flexible arms (the brand describes them as wings) that tuck under the outer labia, securing the three-speed rumbling body right on top or next to the clitoris. “This is great for partnered sex, but I have also loved it on my own,” says one reviewer. “Now one of my favorite toys. I love the rumbly vibrations and bright color. Eva takes me to orgasm in just minutes.” Bonus: It has a discreet charging case, so unlike most toys you can plug it in right in the open.

Optimal Thrusting Movement

26. Velvet Thruster


  • Why We Love It: custom dildo and thrusting vibrator, bendable, three-year warranty
  • Material: body-safe silicone
  • Size: 11.5 to 12 inches long, .65 to 1.85 wide
  • Battery: eight hours use time, 30 minute charge time, 300 stand-by hours

It’s pricey, but this custom thrusting vibrator has all the bells and whistles. Made of ultra-soft silicone, the shafts flex and bend while thrusting, a unique design consideration that makes the experience lifelike. And with your choice of five head shapes, in four colors, and five rechargeable base colors, you can have experiences that range from girthy to G-spot bulbous. The motor has six speeds, up to 140 strokes per minute, with a 3.3 inch stroke length. If this sounds really engineer-y and not sexy, don’t be fooled: “The depth and speed of the Velvet Thruster Prime is absolutely incredible!” says one reviewer. “I love that I can easily switch up the speeds and angles while it's inside of me, and that the textured feel of the Jackie Prime (the head I chose) is literal perfection.”

Favorite Stealth Vibrator

27. Discreet Lipstick Vibrator


  • Why We Love It: fits in nightstand, ten settings
  • Material: ABS (thermoplastic of the sort used to make computer keys) and silica gel
  • Size: 3.6 inches x .9 inches
  • Battery: indicator light shows it’s recharging

If you’re looking for a clitoral vibrator that’s small and super-stealth, this lipstick vibrator is for you. “Fits right in with your makeup, literally NO one will ever know,” writes one reviewer about this ten-speed device.

Great Gift Set

28. Vush Pop Bundle


  • Why We Love It: four toys in one set, mini-sizes
  • Material: medical-grade silicone
  • Size: as small as 3.5 x1 inches
  • Battery: 60 minutes to two hours

Do you know a sex toy aficionada, or has your lover expressed interest in learning about the wide world of sex toys? Gift her this set of four toys from Vush, including Gloss, a pint-sized bullet vibe; Shine, a G-spot vibe; the Plump palm vibrator and Swish, a dual-tip vibe. All are rechargeable, waterproof and made of tasteful millennial pink silicone. Oh and they’ve got low-battery warnings, so when that one-hour run time is winding down, you’ll both know. And all the toys hum along at less than 50 decibels (so you’ll probably end up making more noise than the device does).

Tops for Oral Simulation

29. Lelo Ora 3


  • Why We Love It: variable rotating node under silicone skin, lightweight
  • Material: ABS plastic, silicone
  • Size: 3.2 x 3.4 x 1.7 inches
  • Battery: up to one hour play time

This award-winning device has a unique mechanism that simulates the lapping motion of oral sex not with vibration or air currents, but with a rotating “pleasure nub” that moves around underneath the device’s silicone covering. It’s designed to be used to initiate arousal by holding around the clitoris, then going direct for a big finish. We love that the randomized movements of the nub are impossible to predict, helping users to stay focused while using it.

Great Wearable

30. Satisfyer Sexy Secret Panty Vibe


  • Why We Love It: app compatible, multi-function
  • Material: ABS Plastic, silicone
  • Size: 3.5 x 1.4 inches
  • Battery: 90 minutes between charges

This small, thin vibrator rests in your panties, secured by magnets; your partner (or you) control it via app. So, school drop-off just got fun (kidding!). We’re talking date night together or staying connected while your partner is out of town, since with consent, your partner can control the ten intensities of humming, pulsing and throbbing. “This is such a fun little toy. It’s very soft, smooth and discreet,” says one user. “The app has quite a few options and the fact that it can be controlled remotely is a bonus.” And did we mention there’s music syncing?
