Splurge Steal Vibrators 1207

THE WORK OF ART SPLURGE: $380 BONE, myla.com. As head of design for Sir Terence Conran's shop, Habitat, Tom Dixon brought high design in furniture and lighting to the masses. With Bone, he brings the same to the bedroom ... along with a deliciously visual and tactile level of eroticism to solo sex.

THE WORK OF ART STEAL: $29.95 NATURAL CONTOURS MAGNIFIQUE, naturalcontours.com. When Natural Contours partnered with the designers of the Fokker Aircraft Cockpit (we're getting aroused), no surprise they came up with something sleek, functional, and ergonomic.

THE STANDARD SPLURGE: $395 JIMMYJANE LITTLE PLATINUM, jimmyjane.com. Why get plastic when your sexcessories can be platinum? The superquiet, waterproof vibe comes with a replaceable motor because, for nearly $400, it ought to, and the chassis won't wear out.

THE STANDARD STEAL: $20 WATER SHIMMER, babeland.com. In hard plastic, it's the mac and cheese of sex toys: basic, unobjectionable (not in-your-face lifelike; costs less than takeout), and decidedly satisfying.

THE INCOGNITO SPLURGE: $175 FORM 6, jimmyjane.com. With no specified top and bottom, just endless sensuous surfaces, this curvy silicone toy is designed for limitless play (for real -- the battery lasts two hours!). Good thing, because the six different vibrating patterns will keep you plenty entertained.

THE INCOGNITO STEAL: $48 LAYA SPOT, babeland.com. This tiny (4 x 1.5 inch) vibe is a perfect travel partner: Its design doesn't scream "sex toy" at airport security, and, unlike your guy, it won't get cranky on a long flight.

THE RABBIT SPLURGE: $82 RABBIT HABIT, goodvibrations.com. This toy tops the charts because of its hits-two-spots-at-once design (oh, and that Charlotte episode). Bonus: It's made of Elastomer, a plastic that's latex-free (safe for people with allergies) and phthalate free (no potential cancer risk).

THE RABBIT STEAL: $14.95 ROTATING RABBIT VIBRATOR, adameve.com. A knockoff cheap enough that you can trash one every few weeks before your parents visit (but you might need some carbon offsets to restore your eco karma). Just don't expect this vibe to last much longer than an Altoid.
