Ahead, the 51 popular vibrators that the experts swear by. (P.S.: Get into the mood with our hand-picked list of the best female-friendly porn websites.)

FemmeFunn Ultra Bullet, $49
"I tell my clients the FemmeFun Ultra Bullet packs the most bang for the buck and size. It looks like a tiny purple flashlight with a hot pink on/off button, and has 20 different powerful vibration modes. It's perfect for travel, especially if noise is a consideration as well. It’s whisper quiet, so vibe away no matter where you are." —Dr. Holly Richmond
Dame Products Eva, $84
"Eva is the lovechild of the dynamic, badass—ahem, female—duo behind Dame Products. Take note that this is the *first* hands-free, strap-free, non-intrusive couples vibrator. To which we say, 'LOOK MA! NO HANDS!' Eva is made of the smoothest silicone, with flexible wings that fit snugly under a woman's labia majora, making it possible to experience clitoral stimulation during sex or while playing solo." —Polly Rodriguez
Lovelife Cuddle Mini, $59
"A smaller version of the original, Lovelife Cuddle Mini is petite and discreet, with a soft design. It's our vibrator of choice when women come to us for suggestions on an introductory vibrator. Women LOVE this item, and we are constantly getting requests from people for it!" —S.D.
We-Vibe Sync, $130
"Our most popular couple's vibe keeps getting better and better. The latest innovation of the C-shaped vibrator that can be worn during sex is more flexible, powerful, and can be operated with an app that also works remotely. That means your partner can control your vibrator even when you're far apart." —Claire Cavanah
California Dreaming Malibu Minx, $98.99
"From the California Dreaming line, which I absolutely love, this one stands out because the clitoral stimulator sucks! When we talk about clitorises, we tend to talk about flicking or licking sensations, but a lot of what many people love about oral sex is the suction, and this vibe provides that!" - Dr. Jill McDevitt
Unbound's Palma, $128
"The vibrator you can take anywhere—discreet, wearable, waterproof. Gone are the days of worrying that your vibrator will go off in your carryon while the airport agent is searching your bags…now you can bring your vibrator with you and feel like the sex goddess you are wherever you go. I like to use the Palma as the perfect foreplay…wearing your vibrator out to a fancy dinner and no one is any wiser is a great way to build pleasure and desire." - Dr. Jordin Wiggins
The SKYN Vibes Personal Body Massager Vibrator, $27.49
"SKYN Vibes is an amazing vibrator as they’re virtually silent and still very powerful. They’re also a great shower sex accessory since it’s totally waterproof and perfect for play that doesn't involve intercourse." - Gigi Engle
The Vector by We-Vibe, $139
“The prostate is a man’s most direct access point to explosive orgasms. [I recommend exploring] prostate stimulation for psychological and sexual health and wellness, but the biggest reason for exploring the prostate is to unlock higher arousal and levels of pleasure." - Dr. Chris Donaghue
The K-Y Ultimate Pleasure Personal Bullet Vibrator, $50.95
"For women looking for a discreet option, I highly recommend the K-Y Ultimate Pleasure Personal Bullet Vibrator—small and very quiet--this vibrator is an amazing option and travels very well. Don't be fooled by its size, it delivers ten-fold! Added bonus—it's waterproof, so you can bring it into the bath or shower." - Dr. Jennifer Wider
The Melt by We-Vibe, $149
"The Melt has just the right amount of suction AND vibration. It’s designed to be slim enough to work for every couple and every position, but I like it just as much for self-pleasure during a solo session. It can be hooked up to an app so your partner can control the intensity while you hold is just where you want it." - J.W.
Hide & Play Rechargeable Lipstick, $26.99
"It easily passes for a lipstick you can keep in your purse or makeup bag. Plus it's powerful and functional, so you can actually use and enjoy it. I like to recommend this one to clients in need of something discreet and private." - J.M.
California Dreaming Orange County Cutie, $98.99
"I wasn't kidding when I said I love the entire California Dreaming line. I love the colors, the motors, the silky silicone. But this is another standout from the line—it features a clitoral stimulator (win) and thrusting vaginal stimulator (double win!) that thumps up and down." - J.M.
Optimum Power Masturball, $79.99
"It's truly a one-of-a-kind penis stroker that squeezes and rubs in a way that feels like lips and a tongue. Super unique!" - J.M.
California Dreaming Surf City Centerfold, $92.99
"Okay, seriously, this one is my favorite of the California Dreaming line I'm obsessed with, because it is like nothing I've ever seen before in a vibrator. It features a pulsating pad that thumps. The motion reminds me of a base speaker on full blast! You can put it on your clitoris for thumping vibes on your clit, or insert it and the thumping pads like up to your g-spot." - J.M.
Lovelife Share Couples Vibrator, $79
"For any couple who wants to start with a product that is small and simple, this is the perfect item. The vibrator has seven vibration patterns, and its discreet look that will make each person more comfortable introducing toys into their bedroom." —Suki Dunham
The ZALO Queen, $179
"This unique toy comes packaged in a keepsake box and includes fine design features like a Swarovski crystal embellishment on the handle. It has a warm-up function as well as dual stimulation: wave vibrations and rumbly vibrations—both of which send pleasure sensations across the body, thanks to the fact that it curves up gently to stimulate the G-Spot. Use a few drops of Astroglide Liquid with this one to take the wave vibrations to new heights." —Dr. Jess O’Reilly
The Pom, $95
"Dame Products’ latest creation, the Pom, sits comfortably in the palm of your hand and delivers five powerful patterns or the option to pick your intensity. This flexible vibe is a clitoral pleasure godsend." —C.P.
Le Wand Petite, $130
"As a longtime Magic Wand devotee, I didn’t think another wand vibrator could live up to such magic. Le Wand Petite is a more compact version (think smaller head and handle) that is purse-sized and perfect for travel." —Charyn Pfeuffer
The Moxie by We-Vibe, $129
"The formula for passion in relationships involves creating a foundation of love, security, and trust that is so solid you can do things that feel risky together. Breaking the rules together with Moxie not only heightens your excitement and pleasure, but can deepen your bond and build trust, as you confide in one another and share a private, playful secret." - J.O.
Unbound Bean, $36
"At only $36, this powerful vibe is a steal, given all its features. Bean has 6 modes, is waterproof, and can be used for both targeted and broader stimulation. Like all our vibrators, it is made with medical grade silicone so even though it's more affordable, you're not compromising on using body-safe materials." —P.R.
Trio Triple-Vibe Remote-Control Butt Plug, $140
"If you’re new to anal play, this toy is a good mid-range, easily insertable size for testing the waters. It can be worn comfortably under clothes, and with its remote-control feature, is fun for pseudo-public sexy time." —C.P.
Lily 2, $140
"This is my go-to toy when I want a lazy orgasm. It requires very little activity, motion, or lube, and can even be used over underwear, if you're feeling REALLY lazy. It's very ergonomic and fits perfectly in your hand, so it's also an excellent choice for providing external clitoral stimulation during intercourse." —Dr. Zhana Vrangalova
Club Vibe 3.OH Panty Vibe, $119
"As many know, we began by creating the music vibrator. Over the years we have worked to perfect these products and create new ones. Our new Club Vibe 3.OH is a discreet wearable panty vibrator designed to please—wherever the mood strikes. Quiet and lightweight, the slim-line vibe features three pleasure modes and a rechargeable, wireless remote control with a built-in microphone. Step up your game with your partner!" —S.D.
Ina Wave, $199
"This is probably my favorite rabbit style vibrator out there. It's perfect for when you want dual internal and external clitoral stimulation, and the Wave part adds that up and down motion that hits the G-spot just right." —Z.V.
Fun Factory Stronic Real Realistic Pulsator Thrusting Dildo, $199
"The Stronic Real makes me glad that I’m alive and have a vagina. It’s one of those rare sex toys that I feel the need to keep rigorously testing even after I know I’ve used it enough to write a detailed review. It’s a good thing the Stronics’ battery life is so long (I’ve found mine to last something like an hour and a half), because you may want to spend a while with this toy. I feel like I’m doing myself a disservice if I dedicate less than 45 minutes to the Stronic Real." —Felicity
Sona Cruise, $179
"When receiving oral sex, some clit-owners prefer licking, others prefer sucking. If you're the latter (like myself), you're going to love the Sona Cruise! It provides that sucking motion experience, in the exact speed and pattern that you want." —Z.V.
Satisfyer Pro Deluxe, $50
"Okay, this vibrator is a hero. I have the entire line of Satisfyer products—this company is that good—but I tend to go back to the Pro Deluxe because its simple and easy to hold, focuses on one thing (clitoral stimulation), and does it so well. It uses 'touch-less' technology, which means instead of vibrating on your skin, air pressure is sent around your clitoris in a way that's powerful and unlike any other vibrator you've tried. It will leave you wondering why you ever downloaded a dating app." —Arielle Egozi
Unbound Bender, $59
"I adore this toy, which was so obviously designed by women. This multi-speed, waterproof vibrator is like the totally sexy-hot version of Gumby. You can bend its pink, flexible body whichever way you choose (which is an extremely satisfying thing to do, separate from its intended use), making it ideal for G-spot, clitoral, or all-over stimulation. It lies pretty flat too, so it's discreet (in case you're not in the mood to show off the outline of your favorite sex toy in your bag." —A.E.
Dame Products Fin, $75
"This toy is just so elegant. Everything from the branding to the design is beautifully executed. Fin is small and unobtrusive: You put it on your fingers (or have your partner put it on his or hers) and it becomes an easy (and very fun) addition to partner or solo play. " —A.E.
Noje G Slim, $40
"The Noje line by Blush is one of my favorites, and the G Slim is their newest toy. This affordable vibrator has a lot of power! Plus, its shape is ideal for G-spot stimulation or slipping between bodies during partnered sex for some clitoral pleasure. The only thing I’m unsure of about the Noje G Slim is which color I like best!" —Amy Boyajian
