With so many vibrators on the market—and all at different price points and with different bells and whistles—figuring out which sex toy to buy can be a little intimidating. To take the guesswork out of it—and to make sure you're getting the best bang (wink, wink) for your buck—we asked a group of sexperts, like shop owners and educators, which vibrators they actually use. Ahead, Wild Flower founder Amy Boyajian, writer and sexual wellness advocate Arielle Egozi, Babeland co-founder Claire Cavanah, Unbound Box CEO Polly Rodriguez, Lovehoney's sexpert Jess Wilde, and Good Vibrations' staff sexologist Carol Queen, share their recommendations.
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
We-Vibe Nova, $145
"The Nova is an updated twist on the classic rabbit vibrator. There are two powerful motors on each arm, which can be controlled independently, and the external arm is super flexible to contour to the shape of your body. One of my favorite features is that you can control the vibrators and movement via an app on your smartphone, so no fumbling for buttons when you’re using it!" —A.B.
Satisfyer Pro Plus Vibration, $70
"With the recent advancement of air pressure toys (toys that create suction around the clitoris to mimic oral sex), there has been an influx of this style of vibrator on the market. The Satisfyer Pro Plus Vibration is my favorite of the bunch by far. It combines this new technology with classic vibrations to deliver a variety of different sensations with varying intensities. Plus, it’s waterproof so can accompany you in the shower or bath tub! " —A.B.
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
Broad City Dr. Wiz Mini Wand Vibrator, $70
"If you’re looking for something discreet, a mini-wand is a great option. Theis sure to hit the spot quietly yet powerfully–it’s waterproof too!" —Jess Wilde
Desire Luxury Rabbit Vibrator, $85
"comes with eight patterns of waves and pulses and twelve levels of adjustable intensity for ultimate pleasure. The shaft is made from a velvety smooth, luxury silicone that many first-time buyers find suits them." —J.W.
The Minna Limon, $99
"This the perfect first vibrator. About 70 percent of women need clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm, so it's great to start off with a vibe that focuses on just that. The Minna Limon also includes a brilliant squeezable interface—the harder you squeeze, the stronger the vibrations get. On top of that, for a small toy, it harbors an unprecedented degree of strength. Since every body is different, it features customizable memory to allow a completely personalized experience." —P.R.
Fifty Shades of Grey Greedy Girl Vibrator, $90
“Look out for dual motors in a vibrator—it means double the pleasure. Many of our customers note that the blended orgasm is achievable with simultaneous G-spot and clitoral orgasms. Theis Lovehoney's worldwide best seller." —J.W.
Je Joue G-Kii, $119
"Oh, trust us—you need this one in your bag of tricks. This beautifully made, adjustable vibe can serve either as a straightforward vibe or, with the touch of a button, curve to hug every woman's unique shape to best stimulate the g-spot and clitoris. Use it in a rocking motion and take advantage of its unique range of crescendoing vibration patterns to build slowly to an orgasm."—P.R.
Womanizer Deluxe, $219
"Yes, the name is totally cringeworthy, but this waterproof toy is designed to provide touchless stimulation of the clitoris using pulsating pleasure waves that feel both gentle and powerful. There's really nothing else like it. The interchangeable suction heads are made of soft, hygienic silicone and you can easily switch between 8 levels of intensity. Studies showed that women using this vibrator were able to achieve orgasm, on average, in less than 2 minutes." —P. R.
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
Crave Bullet, $99
"This is a classic shape for an external vibe done up in shiny silver or gold. The metal casing makes for a strong vibration and a classy experience." —C.C.
Je Joue Mio, $109
"This is our most popular vibrating couple's ring. It can be worn on a penis and can really turn up the heat during sex." —C.C.
Vesper by Crave, from $149
"This is a beautiful and truly unique vibrator, and so portable, you don't even need to bring a handbag. The Vesper Vibrator is a strong, slim vibrator as well as a piece of jewelry—it can hang around your neck!" —Carole Queen
We-Vibe Tango Waterproof Vibe, $44
"This petite vibe packs a punch! With a discreet design, the angled tip delivers pulsating vibrations for targeted clitoral stimulation. It's well-made and packed with the multiple modes that all technologically-enhanced 21st century vibrators should feature." —C.Q.
Pleasurette Mini Vibe, $20
"This baby is so easily portable, you can carry vibrations with you almost anywhere. Some of the small, discreet vibes don't have a lot of power, but this one brings the buzz." —C.Q.
Rabbit Habit Original Deluxe Vibrator, $94
"If you look closely, you'll see that there is an actual rabbit hanging off the base and those bunny ears have thrummed on countless clitorises since Sex & the City! That little guy will wiggle his ears to help stimulate your clitoris, while the shaft goes inside your bod, and the tip of it moves in a circular motion against your G-spot. Many people don't know there are two separate nerve pathways that serve the genitals, and guess what? In tandem with the shaft for vaginal insertion, this little rabbit stimulates both at the same time!" —C.Q.
Magic Wand Rechargeable, $90
"This iconic item and bestseller at Good Vibrations was recently updated by the manufacturer to be lighter, but with the same intense vibrations. No other vibrator quite compares to the strength and deep vibrations of the Magic Wand. It's Number One for a reason!" —C.Q.
Lelo Gigi 2 Rechargeable Vibrator, $149
"The Gigi has a truly savvy shape that lets the user choose to aim the flat head at the clitoris or the curved underside, used vaginally, at the G-spot. It's slender but not too small and fits the hand very easily; I recommend this one all the time." —C.Q.
Amorino Rechargeable Vibrator, $100
"Many vibrators are essentially variations on popular and well-designed themes, and at first glance, this is a small twice-as-nice, with a clitoral stimulator and a shaft; but when you start playing with the stretchy silicone loop, it takes you to places other similar vibes simply don't. An ingenious design." —C.Q.
