A Guide To The Best Vibrators: Top 25 Vibes Ever Made

"I'm at the point now where just the sound of a vibrator turns me on" - Betty Dodson

It's been 40 years since Betty Dodson popularized vibrators through her Bodysex workshops.  In those days, the magic wand vibrator had just been released, and people were waking up to how awesome vibrators were for masturbation and sex.

Now vibrators are much less taboo (thank goodness!), and there are thousands to choose from.   With so many choices it can get overwhelming though, so in this post, i'm going to try to condense the vibrator world into a few thousand words, with the goal of helping you find the best vibrator for your individual needs, tastes, and anatomy.

Chapter 1

The 10 Best Vibrators

The best vibrator can be pretty subjective and depends on your body type and what you like.  However these next 10 have consistently been crowd favorites because of their quality, easiness to use, and innovation.

Best Wand Vibrator

 Hitach Magic Wand, Rechargeable Edition

The Hitachi Magic Wand is the vibrator that started it all, and it's still one of the best.  

When the first version came out in the 1960s, it was meant to be a back massager, but soon people realized it was the perfect orgasm machine.  Soon it was the symbol of a masturbation movement across the US.

The magic wand is probably featured in more artwork than than any other sex toy. 

The rechargeable version is pictured above, which is the new magic wand updated for the 21st century.  It features more vibration modes and cuts the cord with a 3 hour battery life.

What makes the magic wand so special is the very powerful vibrations summoned up by its highest setting, which are famous for making some women experience their first orgasm.  With the original version, people were sometimes forced to used bath-towels (a technique known as the Betty Dodson method) or speed controllers to dampen the intense vibrations when needed.

Now the rechargeable version has much more settings, so it's possible to warm up to the higher settings without needing to put a pillow between yourself and the magic wand.

PROS: very powerful,  4 intensity levels, 4 vibration patterns

CONS: large and difficult to hide,  loud at the highest setting

Best Bullet Vibrator

Crave Vesper

The Vesper is both a vibrator and a fashion statement.  Its stainless steel body feels smooth and palpable around the neck, and just as smooth on the clit.

On Instagram you'll see people showing it off under the hashtag #vesperstyle, including celebrities Gwynth Paltrow, Ariana Grande, and Janet Jackson.  It's a fun way to show off your good vibes. 

The stainless steel helps create vibrations that are deep/rumbly, not buzzy like some plastic bullets.  The button on the side can be used to switch between the 4 vibration patterns: low, medium, high, and pulsing.  I would prefer more patterns, but the simplicity can be a good thing on the go when you don't want to busy yourself cycling through 20 patterns.

PROS: discreet, also a necklace, bodysafe stainless steel, comes in different colors, waterproof

CONS: only 4 vibration settings, wearing a sex toy may be awkward to some

Best Rabbit Vibrator

Wevibe Nova

To do its job well, a rabbit vibrator has to be a good fit for your anatomy.  If it's too small or too big for you it can cause problems.

The We-Vibe Nova solves that problem by having an extra long flexible rabbit ear that bends to stay in contact.  So instead of being cradled in between its two arms, you make contact with the outer face of the ear.  This also makes it easy to make bigger thrusts with the toy while maintaining contact with your clit.  

PROS: one-size-fits-all rabbit vibrator, can also be controlled with an app, 10 vibration modes, waterproof

CONS: the flexible clit arm doesn't put as much pressure on the clit as other dual-stim vibes

Best G-Spot Vibrator

The Swan Curve

At its highest setting, the Swan Curve has vibration so rumbly and deep you will feel like everything it being simulated at once. The curved end is the perfect shape for zeroing in on your g-spot with pinpoint accuracy.

For controls, you can either press the button to cycle through intensities, or use its squeeze me technology to control the vibration speed based on how hard you squeeze.

If you want a bigger g-spot vibrator check out its larger cousin, the Swan Wand, which is wonderful for external use but can also be used internally. If you turn it sideways a bit it can hit the entire genital region at once, or focus in a bit on one area using the smaller side.

Another cool technique I like is pressing these toys against my pubic bone and letting the vibrations spread out from there. The sensation I get is so amazing it leaves me with garbled speech for minutes.

PROS:  intensities ranging from light to intense af,   vibrations can be controlled by squeezing it, you can use both 

CONS: the squeeze control can take some practice

Best Clit Vibrator

Lelo Sona

Although there are many brilliant clit stimulators out there, almost all of the best clit vibrators are external, meaning that they focus vibration pleasure on the external part of your clitoris that you can see. However, your clitoris is actually a fairly large part of your anatomy that extends into your body – stimulating the tip is great, but it’s the tip of the potential iceberg.

Lelo designed the Sona to use sonic pulses instead of vibrations. This means that waves of sonic pleasure travel up through the external clitoris and deep into your internal clitoral complex, unlocking “clitorally” insane orgasmic sensations.

PROS:  Sonic wave technology, 100% waterproof, stimulates ALL the clitoral complex

CONS: Pricey, a little loud

Best Remote Controlled Vibrator

Lovense Lush 2

Personally, I think there’s something really hot about a long-distance vibrator. Going about your day with a remote vibrator inside you and surrendering your vaginal pleasure to another person’s whims is undeniably erotic. You can also use a remote vibrator solo or in the same room as a partner too.

Even at its highest speed, the Lovense Lush 2 tops out at a noise level of around 45db, which is about the same as a distant bird call. If you’re using it at the lower settings, it has the potential to be very subtle. The Lush 2 also has a far bigger motor than the original Lush, so you can rest assured that this is one of the strongest vibrators around.

PROS:  Long distance vibrator, can sync to music, quiet, USB rechargeable

CONS: Expensive

Most Discreet Vibrator

Lelo Mia 2

MAC makes some great lipsticks, but do they vibrate in 6 different patterns? I thought not. This USB rechargeable lipstick vibrator from Lelo is designed to be a subtle addition to your bag, allowing you to take a small vibrator with you on the go. It’s even fully waterproof down to 1 meter, so it can be used in the bath or shower.

At a glance, this looks like a lipstick, but it does say “LELO” on it rather conspicuously, so people who have heard of the sex toy company might put 2 and 2 together if they see it. Although this is a fun little naughty bullet vibrator, the sex toy reviews on Amazon for the Mia 2 show a lot of people being unhappy with its strength.

PROS:  6 different vibration settings, subtle, waterproof

CONS: Expensive, vibes are a little weak

Best Big Vibrator

The Tremor

Vibes are great for arousing our genitalia, but even the most powerful vibrators don’t stimulate the feel of penetrative sex. Enter the Tremor! The Tremor is a large 'hands-free' rideable vibrator which is compatible with Sybian and Motorbunny attachments, two of the most well-known sex machine brands in the world.

The standard Tremor comes with 2 different silicone attachments as standard, all of which are dishwasher safe, which is cute. You use a wired remote control to control the “rock” and the “roll” of the machine, basically making you a really horny version of Little Richard. So, just Little Richard I guess.

PROS:  Remote control sex machine, many different attachments, compatible with Sybian & Motorbunny products

CONS: Pricey, higher settings can be a bit noisy

Best 'Realistic' Dildo Vibrator

Vixen Creations

Vixen Creations make some really neat artistic stuff, combining vibrant colors and designs with some of the best sex toys for women. This Vixart series “Pop!” model in particular features realistic feeling silicone combined with an internal bullet vibrator which is USB rechargeable.

However, I wouldn’t say that Vixen make the top-rated vibrators in the world. Although the USB charging is good, this toy lasts for barely more than 60 minutes of continuous use, which doesn’t impress me much, as Shania would say. Still, these toys are really impressive to look at.

PROS:  ​​​10 different vibrate settings, artsy design, 100% silicone exterior, Vixskin feels realistic

CONS: Vibrations only last for 60 minutes

​I love Sweet Vibrations, and you should too. This female-owned company creates some of the best female sex toys on the market, working across a range of different styles. All of their top vibrators are affordably priced, robust, and even come with a lifetime warranty as standard. In fact, they’re the ONLY sex toy company to offer lifetime warranties on all of their products!

The Pixie is designed to sort-of “pinch” your clitoris, providing intense external stimulation when you’re in the mood. It has 10 different vibration settings, it’s USB rechargeable, it’s quiet, it’s waterproof, AND it has a lifetime warranty if you’re not happy or it breaks. What more can we ask for?

A quiet bullet clit vibrator

PROS:  Lifetime warranty, waterproof, quiet, USB rechargeable

CONS: ​Shape isn’t very intuitive

Chapter 2

25 Special Mentions For 'Top Vibrator' of 2019

In the last section I listed my opinion of the 10 best vibrators of all time, but when it comes to any sex toy, 'best' is very subjective. So in this section i'm listing other cool vibrators just worthy of the title 'best vibrator' for other people and body types.

Emojibator Eggplant

The Emojibator eggplant is one of the best ways to get your daily recommended dose of masturbation. 

Based on the most suggestive emoji of all time, it's got 10 vibration settings and one of the strongest vibrator motors for the size.

Wevibe Tango

The Tango is another A-list bullet vibrator I really wanted to mention in the top 10, but didn't have space for. It has famously strong vibrations that feel rumbly, not buzzy.  If you love a powerful vibrator, but want something small, then you will love the Tango.  It is more powerful than the Crave Vesper, just not quite as stylish and discreet.

I'm not sure how they do it, but the motor inside this vibe is leaps and bounds ahead of what any other bullet vibrators have.  That being said, even the weakest setting is strong, if you have a more sensitive clit, this guy might not be for you.

The Mystic Wand

The mystic wand is about half the length of the magic wand, and one of the best medium sized wand vibrators.

It's the strongest battery powered vibrator i've found, too. But its 6 settings let you tone down the vibrations if you want to play around with some more gentle vibrations.  

Stronic Surf

The Stronic Surf Pulsator is reminiscent of an ocean wave, so I guess it’s ideal for surfers who like to get off.

This toy comes with an insertable length of 5.6 inches and comes with thrusting motions in 21 different speed/strength combinations, so it’s great for simulating real sex with a top-rated vibrator.

Lelo Mona 2

The Lelo Mona 2 is arced so that it provides a large area of g-spot stimulation.  It's easy to hold and one of the best vibrators if you love internal stimulation.  It's also very dynamic, going from soft vibrations all the way to very powerful.

It's made by lelo who is known for making vibrators that look as good as they feel.  Since it's waterproof you can take it in the shower, and since it's rechargeable it will save money over vibrators that use batteries.

Lelo Soraya

While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, when it comes to rabbit vibrators the Lelo Soraya tends to be a head-turner.  Its aesthetic shape and Swedish design won it several awards for most innovative Toy of the Year.  The name 'Soraya' means gem of the desert, or princess when it is used as a person's name.

It's about a 3/4 on the intensity scale and 2/4 on the loudness scale.  There's 8 vibration modes and 3 of them alternate different patterns between the clit and the shaft motor.

The Shark Vibrator

The 'Shark' is a rabbit vibe in shark's clothing.  Like all of Emojibator's toys, it's a fresh and fun take on a classic.

Instead of a rabbit ear, it uses a fin for clit stimulation.    It's pretty high tech too, with 3 inflatable settings that let you change the size of the shaft.

Lioness

Designed with subtlety in mind, the Lioness is the brainchild of a female-led team of sex toy designers who were sick of loud sex toys giving the game away.

The lioness is a simple quiet vibrator which is also 100% waterproof, so you can almost-silently pleasure yourself anywhere without sacrificing strong vibrations.

The Swan Wand

This is a BIG vibrator.  At nearly 1 foot in lenth,  USB rechargeable body massager is made from 100% medical-grade silicone, so it’s perfect for people with sensitivity issues. It’s designed as a generic “body massager” but it acknowledges that it’s also a sex wand.

I wouldn’t put this sex wand inside you, but its 2 powerful motors make for some awesome clitoral stimulation.

Unbound Squish

This squishy vibrator is certainly a unique concept. The waterproof vibe comes with 5 different modes, claiming that the vibrations get stronger the harder that you squish it.

The Squish is definitely an interesting design that stands out from the rest, but I can’t help but think that it’s a bit gimmicky.

Iroha Mini

Made by TENGA, the Japanese company famous for its unusual male strokers and artistic designs, the Iroha Mini is a vibrating egg sex toy which claims to be fully waterproof.

The Mini runs on batteries, so bear that in mind if you’re planning on taking it away for a long weekend!

Ave Nimbus

After some light research (a.k.a googling) I discovered that “Nimbus” is Latin for “rain cloud”, which explains the unusual color and shape of this vibrator.

It comes with 7 quiet vibration modes and USB charging, but I just can’t help but think that the design is not very… sexy?

Gaia Eco

This is the world’s first biodegradable and recyclable vibrator, which I have to admit deserves some praise. It’s made from starch-based plastic, which saves the planet but doesn’t exactly wet my panties.

Still, it’s hypoallergenic and comes with multiple vibe settings, so what’s not to love? Go green and get off.

Maude

If you’re going to call a vibrator “Maude”, you’d better be marketing it to old grannies with too much time on their hands. Maybe they are, because this doesn’t scream “PENIS!” when you look at it.

It has 3 speeds and lasts for 2.5 hours after a charge, which is neat.

Lovense Hush

Lovense loves to create good vibrators which can be remotely controlled via wifi and apps on your phone. This makes the possibilities of solo play and long-distance couple play endless.

The Hush is a powerful wifi-controlled vibrating butt plug which is designed to keep lube inside your sphincter, making it easy to remove once you’re done. Nice!

The Eroscillator

This Swiss-engineered line of top-rated vibrators has supposedly helped many women to reach their first-ever orgasm, which is cool.

It’s hard to understand this vibrator without a Physics degree, but it uses something called an “axially oscillating engine” which seems to respond to your vagina’s muscle movements in real-time.

The Tiger

The tiger, which disappointingly doesn’t really resemble a tiger, is one of the most powerful vibrators on this list.

With an insertable length of 6 inches and a total of 36 different speed/pattern vibration combinations, there are many hours of fun to be had with this beauty. If only they’d made it more tiger-ey.

Queen Bee

This cool sex wand is ideal for vulva stimulation, featuring 2 different vibrating sections which can be individually controlled for the ultimate masturbation experience.

It’s best used externally, but it’s great for some vulva and clitoral vibes! I can’t see it being endorsed by Beyoncé, but who knows?

Patchy Paul

Okay, the name “Patchy Paul” does not make me want to stick this inside me. However, this German-made vibrator has a unique bumpy body and curved tip design which make it great for internal G-spot orgasms.

It also has 6 different vibe patterns and 6 speeds, so you can experiment to your heart’s content.

Aneros Vivi

This cool sex wand is ideal for vulva stimulation, featuring 2 different vibrating sections which can be individually controlled for the ultimate masturbation experience.

It’s best used externally, but it’s great for some vulva and clitoral vibes! I can’t see it being endorsed by Beyoncé, but who knows?

Lelo Ina 2

If you’re a fan of rabbit sex toys, then the Lelo Ina 2 is for you. This is one of the strongest vibrators in the rabbit style, boasting 2 powerful motors for G-spot and clitoris stimulation.

I don’t think it’s particularly different from other rabbit designs, but it does promise amazing blended orgasms nonetheless.

Zalo Luxury Vibrator

Honestly, I don’t care what this toy does or how many vibe settings it has. The selling point here is how bloody gorgeous it is!

This opulent sex toy features a Versace-esque design and 24 karat gold plating. It’s literally the Ferrari of sex toys.

Volta Clit Vibrator

The Volta is an external vibrator which is designed to frequently tap against your clitoris, allowing for more intense stimulation.

It essentially features 2 “flaps” of silicone which are vibrated separately, causing the material to shake around very quickly. Take my word for it – things can get intense rather quickly.

Kiiroo Pearl 2

Unlike many other Bluetooth vibrators and wifi vibrators, the Kiiroo Pearl 2 can be paired with another Kiiroo device.

This makes it one of the only vibrators in the world which caters to lesbian couples, allowing them to enjoy simultaneous vibrating pleasure and really share erotic moments.

Eva Dame

The female-designed Eva II is a wearable vibrator which can last for 5 hours at its lowest strength and 1 hour at its highest strength. 

It’s not the world’s most intuitive design, but it can be worn handsfree for many women. Still, some ladies may have to hold it in place.

Lelo Nea 2

Unlike many other Bluetooth vibrators and wifi vibrators, the Kiiroo Pearl 2 can be paired with another Kiiroo device.

This makes it one of the only vibrators in the world which caters to lesbian couples, allowing them to enjoy simultaneous vibrating pleasure and really share erotic moments.

WeVibe Sync

The female-designed Eva II is a wearable vibrator which can last for 5 hours at its lowest strength and 1 hour at its highest strength. 

It’s not the world’s most intuitive design, but it can be worn handsfree for many women. Still, some ladies may have to hold it in place.

Satisfyer Penguin

The Satisfyer Penguin is a cool little vibrator which is designed for labia/clitoris stimulation. It has 11 different vibration patterns and a cute penguin design.

It charges via a magnetic USB port, but they also include a mains adaptor if you prefer to charge it from a wall power outlet.

Types of Vibrators Explained

Wand Vibrators

Wand vibrators have long handle and a ball-shaped end that vibrates.  The original vibrators were all wand vibrators, like the magic wand, and sold as back massagers.  It only took a while for people to realize that wand massagers were the best orgasm machine ever invented.

Read the full wand vibrator guide

Bullet Vibrators

Bullet vibrators are small and compact clit vibrators, best for taking on the go or keeping things discreet.  For sex, they fit in positions where other vibrators can't. For masturbation, they work well on their own or can be mixed and matched with dildos and other toys.

To make it easier to find a bullet, we've put together a guide to the best 38 bullet vibrators, here are the top four from that list:

Rabbit Vibrators

Rabbit vibrators, aka dual-stimulation vibrators are like two vibrators in one.  The small 'rabbit ear' and shaft vibrate separately to give you swirling, spiraling blended orgasms.

The original rabbit vibrator came from Japan, and had two little silicone ears for clit stimulation.  Now a days the best rabbit vibrators usually just have one ear, which makes broader contact.

Here's the top 3 rabbit vibrators from our guide to the best rabbit vibrators:

G-Spot Vibrators

For internal stimulation, the best g spot vibrators can really hit the spot.  They are internal vibrators that are shaped to apply strong vibrations directly to your g-spot.

You can use them alone or combine them with the bullets, wands, and clit vibes we just went over.  Using one for the first time can take some practice, but it's a good investment if you love internal stimulation.

Remote Control Vibrators

Remote control vibrators let you adjust the speed and patterns of a vibrator from a distance.

Your only limit with these vibrator is creativity, and perhaps your wifi signal.  Most can be worn in public and controlled by a partner via app.  Others come with their own remotes and use a wireless signal.  Some can even be controlled from across the globe, for long distance sex.

'Quiet' Vibrators

It can be a bit of a turn off if you want to use a vibrator, but have roommates nearby.  I thought it would be fun to measure different vibrators volumes at my local sex shops to see which ones were the quietest.  Unsuprisingly, the smaller the vibrator (and the smaller the motor) the more quiet the vibrator.  You can read about my findings in this guide to the quietest vibrators.

Vibrating Panties

Vibrating panties or panty vibrators can be worn and controlled in public.  Most are quiet and as long as you can hide your O-face, no one will know your partner is making you orgasm under the dinner table.  Just sip that red wine and focus on those innuendos your partners are making.  People may get suspicious as you make stifled gasps from how good it feels, but keep calm, they're probably enjoying it as much as you are.

Curious to learn more about this type of vibrator? In our post on the best vibrating panties you'll learn about the best panty vibrators and how to use them.

Clit Vibrators

70% of women need clitoral stimulation to orgasm, and clit vibrators are designed to be the best at delivering it.  They are good for on the go, solo masturbation with other toys, and for adding some vibrations to sex.  In our best clit vibrator guide, we list out 50 awesome clit vibrators, sort-able by price, rating, and likes.

Sonic & Sucking Vibrators

Also called clit massagers and stimulators, these sonic vibrators suck your clit by using high frequency sound waves.  It's one of the most high tech ways to get off.

Best Vibrator Brands

Chapter 4

Each brand has a distinctive style, quality, and feel to their vibrations, so if you're wondering where to buy vibrators, searching by brand is generally a good place to start.

Fun Factory - Colorful & Fun

Fun Factory makes vibrators that look as fun as they are to use. After all, what's more fun than masturbating?  

Each vibe comes in bright colors, interesting shapes, and they usually have cool names like "Patchy Paul", "Wicked Wings", or "Miss Bi".

Volta

Each one is designed and made in Germany, where they're famous for being  both kinky and techy.  So it's no surprise their vibrators are cutting edge orgasm machines: waterproof, rechargeable, with soft silicone, strong motors, and ergonomic handles.

Patchy Paul

The Fun Factory factory

Fun Factory is also famous for being one of the most ethical vibrator companies.  They make their toys out of body-safe materials, their workshops use eco-friendly methods and they have fair labor practices.  If you go into independent woman-owned sex shops you'll find Fun Factory vibrators are a favorite, usually front and center on display.

Just north of Germany's Fun Factory, across the Baltic Sea in Stockholm, is Lelo, Sweden's biggest Vibrator company and Fun Factory's biggest competitor.

Tiger

Lelo - Glamorous and Shiny

Compared to Fun Factory, Lelo's vibrators look more luxurious, glamorous, and snazzy.  Their sex toys are just as at home in a jewerly box as they are in a toy box.

Lelo's flare has attracted some serious star power, like Gwyneth Paltrow, who recommends their $15,000 gold vibrator in one of her sex toy guides.

Lelo Soraya Black Review

Most of Lelo's Vibrators aren't as expensive as a new car, though.  The Soraya vibrator, which means princess, is $190 and one of their more popular rabbit vibrators.  Their clit-sucking vibrator, the Lelo Sona at $70, is another well known pulsator.

Lelo isn't without controversy though.  Some bloggers have written heated bits about their business ethics, like here and here.

WeVibe – a Focus on the 'Best Vibrators for Couples'

Founded in 2003 by a Canadian couple named Bruce and Melody Murison, WeVibe is all about creating top-rated vibrators that can be worn by a woman while she has sex with a male partner. The flexibility of their products means that they will stay in place no matter what creative sex positions you’re getting up to.

After launching its first couples vibrator in 2008, WeVibe quickly went on to win a Venus Award for the bestselling sex toy product in 2009 in Berlin, Germany. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength, continuing to innovate and create vibrators which can be worn during sex.

Over 1.5 million WeVibe products have been sold as of 2019, with the company even being dragged into lawsuits and patent debates by companies such as Lelo who want to “copy” their idea of a wearable vibrator designed for enhancing intercourse.

However, it’s not all sunshines and rainbows with this Canadian sex toy company – they were recently ordered to pay out $4 million CD to consumers because they collected data about users’ internal temperature and vibrator habits, which seems a little gross and intimate. They were probably trying to collect data for their own design efforts, but it’s still kind of weird, right?

Vibratex – Longstanding US Vibrator company

Vibratex is a California-based sex toy company which was founded in 1984, so you can rest assured that they’ve been around the sex toy block a few times. For many years, they have been the exclusive US importer of the Hitachi Magic Wand Massager which became popular in the 1960s as an impromptu clit stimulator!

If you’ve seen the famous Sex and the City episode with the rabbit vibrator, it was actually the “Rabbit Habit” rabbit sex toy from Vibratex which was featured on the show. Their rabbit sex toy has also graced the glossy pages of Cosmo, “O” Magazine, and Glamour too. That’s an impressive resume!

Apparently, Eva Longoria often buys Vibratex rabbits for her friends as gifts, claiming that the best gift she can give them is an orgasm. She says that they “scream when they open the box”, which seems a little excessive, but each to their own.

It seems to be quite hard to find information about Vibratex as a company, despite their high media profile. Their Twitter account seems to be active, suggesting that the company is based in Napa Valley, CA and is actually family-owned. They also list their official Twitter location as “the right spot”, which is cute.

Womanizer – German clitoris-sucking revolutionaries

Womanizer is a sex toy manufacturing company which started in Metten, Germany many years ago. The founder Michael Lenke and his wife Brigitte heard that lots of women around the world were having a hard time reaching orgasms consistently, so they decided to revolutionize the stagnant sex toy industry with something new.

Enter the Womanizer! These unique female sex toys use a patented “Air Pleasure Technology” system which essentially sends waves of air into your clitoris for stimulation instead of actually touching it. This stops your body from becoming accustomed to the sensations and hence makes it easier for you to orgasm.

Their products are essentially “clit sucking” vibrator sex toys which move your clitoris without actually physically touching it. I know that “clit sucking sex toys” doesn’t sound too appealing, but many women swear by it as a reliable orgasm delivery method. If you’re finding it hard to cum from regular vibes, Womanizer’s products could help.

Shipping around the world, Womanizer now employs 30+ people and has offices in Berlin, San Francisco, and Hong Kong. In fact, a Hong Kong sex toy reviewer recently claimed that a Womanizer product allowed her to orgasm within 1 minute!

Blush Novelties – Ethical and eco-friendly Vibrators

Blush Novelties are surprisingly difficult to find information on despite the high level of press attention that they have received recently. For example, the company recently won the title of Pleasure Products Company of the Year - Sex Toys at the 2019 Xbiz Awards.

Their website sells a ton of different sex toys and vibrators for men and women, and the company claims that they manufacture almost all of them according to a strict ethical code. Blush Novelties’ Chief Operating Officer, Eric Lee, claims that over 95% of Blush Novelties' products are made in their own factory. This is a refreshing revelation following the cheap imported vibrators that many companies peddle.

The company is probably most famous for inventing the Gaia Eco - the world's first biodegradable and recyclable vibrator. It is made from a starch-based plastic which can be composted after use, something which can’t be said for the vast majority of vibes!

They have recently been featured in articles about eco-friendly sex toys in publications such as The Guardian, making a name for themselves as an ethical sex toy company. Blush Novelties seems like a breath of fresh air in a sometimes-seedy industry.

SheVibe Vibrator Retailer - Fun comic-book-style

I think that SheVibe definitely has the coolest and most unique aesthetic out of all the sex toy companies I’ve reviewed. Their style is very comic book-ey and cartoonish – it’s basically like a sex toy company for nerds. They sell lots of dildos and top-rated vibrators based on famous films and TV franchises. I particularly like their Rick and Morty sexy enamel pins and their Steampunk-style dildos.

SheVibe was started by a husband and wife team who decided to found a sex toy company in the midst of one of their so-called "porn and sushi" nights. That sounds fun to me. Both partners had retail experience and lots of personal experience with different sex toy brands, so they decided to hire a talented graphic artist to bring about the “comic book” style they were going for. With that, SheVibe was born.

To be clear, SheVibe doesn’t manufacture products – it stocks products from over 200 different sex toy manufacturers, including Womanizer, SheVibe, Lelo, LoveHoney, TENGA, Blush, and most the producers that we’ve mentioned on this list. Whether you’re a fan of the style or not, SheVibe’s site is a fun and non-intimidating sex toy website which is here to stay.

How to use your new vibrator 

Even if you’ve got one of the best vibrators for women, you’ll never maximize its potential if you don’t know how to use a vibrator properly! Here we’re going to give you a quick overview, but check out our how to use a vibrator guide for more detail.

Clitoral stimulation

The easiest way to use a vibrator is to stimulate your clitoris or “clit”. You can stimulate your clit by rubbing it or grinding on household objects, but a vibrator is a much easier way to produce clitoral orgasms. The clitoris is a very sensitive part of a woman’s body, so lubricate it with some water-based lube before putting anything down there.

Once you’re lubed up and ready to go, gently place the vibrator on your exposed clitoris (you may need to pull your labia back to expose it) and start to feel the sensations. It’s probably best to start with low-strength vibrations at first, working up as you become more comfortable. The best vibrators have a wide range of vibe patterns, and some even use airwaves to "suck" your clitoris in and out at high speeds.

G-spot stimulation

As well as your clitoris, you also have an internal G-spot which has the potential to deliver deeply intense and relaxing orgasms throughout your entire body. The G spot is located on the anterior (front) side of your body, around 2-3 inches inside your vagina. It’s at a curved angle, so it’s basically impossible to touch with your own fingers.

However, you can buy specially designed sex wands and G spot vibrators which are curved in a unique shape which massages your internal G spot. You can also get the famous “rabbit sex toys” which are known to produce "blended orgasms" – a combination of the clitoris and G-spot orgasms which are very intense.
