Best Vibrators of 2023

Whether you’re buying your first vibrator or you have a drawer full of toys and are looking for new gems to explore with, selecting a vibrator can feel daunting. "Anyone looking to expand their experience of pleasure or try new kinds of stimulation can benefit from using vibrators," says Kate Balestrieri, Ph.D., licensed psychologist, certified sex therapist, and founder of Modern Intimacy

A good vibrator can help you explore what you like during solo sessions without the anxiety that can come with a partner asking you what you want. Meanwhile, for couples, using a vibrator together can increase intimacy and intensify simultaneous pleasure, she adds. 

Staci Tanouye, MD, a practicing OBGYN in Jacksonville, Florida, adds: “[Exploring with a vibrator] can help with mood, sleep, better communication with your partner during sex, and confidence in your own pleasure.” And studies suggest that vibrator users with vaginas are more likely to self-examine their genitals. Plus, vibrators can help improve orgasms and lubrication in people with vaginas and increase arousal and erections in people with a penis.

The best vibrators will be made from body-safe silicone, have easy-to-access controls, and be constructed to help you explore pleasure in a way that seems desirable to you.

Both our experts agree that selecting a vibrator is a deeply personal preference. "Everybody is different, and people like different types of stimulation," Dr. Tanouye explains. Some people like internal stimulation only, some external clitoral stimulation, others a combination of both—and even within these categories, you have the option of a thruster, a rabbit, and suction, just to name a few. "It's a completely personal preference," Dr. Tanouye adds.

An obstetrician/gynecologist on our Medical Expert Board also reviewed this article for medical and scientific accuracy surrounding what to look for in a vibrator, how to properly clean one, and which materials to avoid.

Best Overall

Hitachi Magic Wand Rechargeable

Hitachi Magic Wand Rechargeable


Why We Like It: This vibrator has an incredibly powerful motor, soft silicone head, and long battery life.

It’s Worth Noting: It doesn’t offer much versatility for internal stimulation.

The original Magic Wand has been pleasuring people for decades with its soft silicone head and powerful motor. This updated, cordless version, the Magic Wand Rechargeable, has the same deeply powerful 6,300 RPM motor that delivers deep, rumbly vibrations.

The vibrator is easily controlled via intuitive buttons to switch between four intensity levels and four vibration patterns, which are displayed on the handle. The head is made from soft silicone, so it feels lush next to your skin, and we love that the head covers a lot of surface area, which you don’t often see in vibrators. 

This updated version is cordless, allowing you more versatility in your pleasure—but it can also be used while charging in case the battery runs out.

Best for Beginners

Maude Vibe

Maude Vibe


Why We Like It: The vibrator has a soft, silicone body with a flutter tip that vibrates at three different speeds.

It’s Worth Noting: It doesn’t offer multiple vibration patterns.

If you’re new to using a vibrator, finding the right one can be a little trial and error—but it’s best to start with something simple, Dr. Tanouye says. She recommends a bullet vibrator, so check out our top pick for that category too. 

But we think the Maude Vibe is ideal for beginners thanks to its no-frills yet versatile design and soft-to-the-touch silicone body.

The intuitive stretched-out egg shape is approachable for beginners and offers opportunities for self-exploration. The tip has a flutter design, while the body provides a deeper vibration. It’s made from 100 percent platinum-grade silicone, so this vibrator is silky soft to the touch, whether on your nipples, clitoris, or perineum. The design of this vibrator is also quite discreet.

It has three speeds, all of which run quietly but are very powerful. It doesn’t have vibration patterns like some vibrators, but for someone just starting to explore their pleasure, the versatile body shape and three speeds will provide plenty of pleasure. 

Maude is a woman-owned small business owned partially by Dakota Johnson that’s known for its clean, high-quality products, including one of our favorite lubes.

The body of the Maude Vibe is latex-free and phthalate-free, so it’s safe for all bodies. The design makes it great for both solo play as well as use with a partner. A single charge lasts 2.5 hours, and it has a travel lock mode so the battery won’t run down accidentally.

Best Budget

Secret Lover Bullet Vibrator

Secret Lover Bullet Vibrator


Why We Like It: It’s affordable, waterproof, and offers multiple speeds and vibration patterns.

It’s Worth Noting: The strength of the vibration weakens as the charge gets low.

If you’re looking for a little pleasure without breaking the bank, or you’re in a trial phase to narrow in on what kind of vibrator you really want, the Secret Lover Bullet Vibrator has three speeds, seven pulsating patterns, and an ergonomic design to focus on sensitive spots. A classic bullet shape, the tip of this vibrator features a flat, lipstick-style edge to focus vibrations on your clitoris, nipples, or anywhere that feels pleasurable.

This bullet is small—just 0.7 inches, about the size of a lipstick tube—which makes it comfortable to fit between you and a partner to use during sex, as well as easy to stash out of sight and bring with you while traveling. This vibrator is even waterproof, opening the world of possibilities for self-pleasure.

It charges via USB in 30 minutes. It’s worth noting the strength of the vibration does weaken as the charge gets low, and it’s not the quietest device. But for $12, you can’t beat it.

Best with Suction

Satisfyer Pro 3+

Satisfyer Pro 3+


Why We Like It: It combines vibration, suction, and pulsation in 110 combination patterns.

It’s Worth Noting: The suction may be too intense for some.

A suction vibrator mimics a mouth sucking on your most sensitive parts. The Satisfyer Pro 3+ offers pressure-wave technology to bring a feeling of suction and pulsations, combined with vibrations, for ultimate pleasure. 

The Pro 3+ has 11 pressure wave intensities and ten vibration settings—a total of 110 combinations to explore. The motor is strong but runs quietly. The Pro 3+ is fully waterproof up to 1 meter, so it can certainly be used for bath play. 

Unlike other suction vibrators, the Satisfyer Pro+ has an ergonomic handhold to keep the suction comfortably against your body. The body-safe silicone feels soft against your skin as well.

Note that a suction vibrator can be highly stimulating—which is pleasurable for some, but can also be over-stimulating for those who are more sensitive, Dr. Tanouye adds. 

Price at time of publication: $41

Best Intense

Womanizer Duo

Womanizer Duo


Why We Like It: This vibrator offers both G-spot and clitoral stimulation at once.

It’s Worth Noting: It’s more expensive than other options on this list.

If you’re looking for your next-level vibrator, the Womanizer Duo is designed for double stimulation for the strongest orgasm. This toy has two parts: a vibrating, flexible arm that can be inserted into the vagina to stimulate the G-spot while, simultaneously, a suction head gently stimulates the clitoris. 

This toy has 12 levels of intensity for both the suction and the vibrator (controlled independently), as well as ten vibration modes—so there's a pattern for any mood you're in. 

The Duo is waterproof and made from body-safe silicone.

The biggest downside is that it’s expensive. But considering it’s two vibrators in one and opens a whole world of double stimulation, this vibrator is worth it if you want to upgrade your orgasms.

Best Tongue-Style

Lelo ORA 3

Lelo Ora 3


Why We Like It: Its firm yet soft texture mimics a tongue.

It’s Worth Noting: The buttons on this vibrator can be difficult to use when maneuvering the toy. 

The LELO Ora 3 is a unique vibrator with a silky silicone node that rotates around to mimic a tongue licking. The node is perfectly firm with a soft-to-the-touch overlay to keep it from feeling pointy. 

“Tongue vibrators mimic the feel of receiving oral sex, but with you controlling its position, you can be confident it will land on your clitoris and deliver exactly the kind of sensation and intensity you seek,” Balestrieri adds.

This toy is designed like a ring, so it's super easy to slip a finger through to hold it against your skin wherever licking would feel pleasurable. The vibrator has 12 patterns, the motor runs quietly, and the toy is fully waterproof. 

LELO is one of the leading luxe sex toy companies, known for its high-end toys and design.

Best for Couples with a Vagina

We-Vibe Chorus

We-Vibe Chorus


Why We Like It: This vibrator is small enough to be used while a penis or dildo is inside the vagina. 

It’s Worth Noting: The inner arm vibration may seem weak to some.

If you want the ultimate stimulation with your partner, the We-Vibe Chorus is a C-shaped vibrator with two flexible, silicone arms, one of which can be inserted into the vagina and the other of which sits on top to vibrate against the clitoris. Both ends vibrate, and the Chorus is small enough that it can fit inside the vagina at the same time as a penis or dildo.

The Chorus has touch-sense control on the body, so you can change the intensity at the moment. It also comes with a remote so you or your partner can control the intensity, and the remote even has a "squeeze" function for intuitive control. 

Bonus: The Chorus also connects to the We-Connect app, which allows you to set customized patterns for quick access, as well as allow a partner to control the vibrational patterns of the toy no matter where they are—great for long-distance relationships.

The Chorus runs quiet, and it comes with a charging travel case, too. The only cons are that the size and shape might not be a good fit for all vaginas, and the vibration on the inner arm isn’t super strong.

Price at time of publication: $199

Best for Prostates

Lovense Adjustable Prostate Massager

Lovense Adjustable Prostate Massager


Why We Like It: This toy features dual stimulation for the prostate and perineum.

It’s Worth Noting: The app connectivity can be spotty.

The first adjustable prostate vibrator, the Lovense Edge has a 3.13-inch stem that'll reach the prostate—with a head shaped for pinpoint stimulation—and a base that can touch the perineum for serious additional stimulation. It's made of 100 percent medical-grade silicone, that’s soft to the touch and silky when lubed up. But what makes the Edge better than other prostate vibrators is that the stem has an inner frame that can bend into your ideal personalized angle. 

The Edge has powerful dual motors that can be controlled individually for internal and external prostate stimulation and a battery life of 150 minutes. The Edge can be controlled via a Bluetooth app standing up to 20 feet away or remotely. The app allows you to program personalized vibration patterns. 

Price at time of publication: $99

Best G-Spot

LELO Gigi 2

LELO Gigi 2


Why We Like It: It has eight super-quiet vibration settings.

It’s Worth Noting: It might not be long enough for some vaginas.

Lelo's Gigi 2 is carefully designed by a leading sex toy company to reach the G-spot of different-shaped vaginas. It has a long shaft and flattened tip, sending the deep and powerful vibrations straight to the G-spot. The flattened tip can also be used externally as a clitoral massager, and this toy's dual use is a great perk. 

The Gigi 2 has eight vibration settings, all of which run quietly. The toy's body is made of premium, extra-soft silicone, and the motor is powerful for such a small toy.

This vibrator is 100 percent waterproof and has a long-lasting charge of up to 4 hours. It also comes with a one-year warranty and a 10-year quality guarantee.

Price at time of publication: $103

Best Thruster

Adam & Eve Thrusting Wand

Adam & Eve Thrusting Wand


Why We Like It: It’s super powerful and has a dual use with a massager and thruster.

It’s Worth Noting: The vibrator is not waterproof.

For deep internal stimulation, the Adam & Eve Thrusting Wand has a thrusting vibrator on one end and a powerful massager on the other. The vibrator is made from smooth, body-safe silicone and runs at 9.37-inches long and 1.89-inches wide for deep and thick stimulation.

The thruster runs at three different speeds, is accessed by three on-device buttons, and extends up three inches to perfectly target your G-spot. The wand uses deep, rumbly vibrations that can be used externally for warm-up stimulation.

It also has an easy-grip handle. It’s splash-proof but not waterproof. This toy is large and powerful—in a good way for most, but it might be a bit much for beginners.

Price at time of publication: $62

Best Rabbit

LELO Soraya 2

LELO Soraya 2


Why We Like It: The flexible exterior arm can accommodate different-shaped vulvas.

It’s Worth Noting: Some people may want a stronger vibration and more oomph. 

Rabbit vibrators are ideal for simultaneous clitoral and G-spot stimulation. We love the LELO Soraya 2 for its luxurious feel, powerful motor, and well-fitting design. 

The Soraya 2 has a long, flexible internal arm that gets broader and thicker at the top for ideal G-spot sensations. The smaller arm is fully flexible, so it sits at a comfortable angle for different-shaped vulvas. We also love the finger loop at the base for a comfortable handhold. 

This toy has 12 vibration settings, from a light tease to a stimulating pulse. It's 100 percent waterproof and made from soft, smooth body-safe silicone. It is expensive, but LELO has a long-standing reputation for high-quality and durable toys.

Price at time of publication: $183

Best Bullet

Je Joue Rabbit Bullet Vibe

Je Joue Rabbit Bullet Vibe


Why We Like It: This bullet has bunny ears for clitoral stimulation.

It’s Worth Noting: The battery life and vibration intensity are a bit limited.

A bullet vibrator is simple and can offer both internal and external vibration stimulation for clitoral and vaginal orgasms, Dr. Tanouye says. The other leading favorite vibrator style is the rabbit, because it offers simultaneous clitoral and G-spot stimulation—and the Je Joue Rabbit Bullet combines both. It keeps the simple, streamlined bullet design with rabbit ears at the end for external clitoral stimulation.

“For some folks with pain during penetration, a bullet vibrator may also be more palatable than some larger vibrators or dildos,” Balestrieri adds.

The Je Joue Rabbit Bullet uses body-safe silicone, is waterproof, and rechargeable with a battery that lasts 90 minutes.

This vibrator is small and simple with no frills, from a playful luxe french brand that stands behind its quality. But some might not find the highest setting powerful enough, and the battery life isn’t the longest.

Price at time of publication: $65

Best Ring

Tenga SVR

Tenga SVR

Tenga Store USA

This vibrating cock ring has a stretchy, silicone band that can easily fit over any penis girth and is made of supple material that won’t pull at your skin as you slide it down the shaft (although we still recommend using it with lube). Attached to the ring is a small, bullet-like vibrator that offers a simple, powerful sensation and ergonomic design to reach the wearer’s perineum and a partner’s clitoris. The vibrations from the bullet will transfer to the wearer’s penis as well, adding stimulation.

This ring is a super simple, waterproof design with five vibration strengths and two patterns. The battery only lasts 60 minutes and charges via an uncommon port, so you must keep track of the charger that comes with the device. But overall, the cock ring is small and discreet, easy to stash in a nightstand or purse.

Price at time of publication: $80

Best Anal Beads

Pipedream Vibrating Anal Power Beads

Pipedream Vibrating Anal Power Beads

Adam & Eve

Why We Like It: It has multiple beads for different levels of pleasure.

It’s Worth Noting: It’s a PVC toy, which is not highly recommended by experts.

Add a little extra stimulation with these vibrating anal beads. The insertion and removal of anal beads stimulate the sensitive nerves at the entrance of the anus, which enhances pleasure. The tapered tips on these beads make the toy easy to insert, and the shaft bends and twists to adjust to your individual anatomy to tease your prostate. 

The beaded shaft, which is one inch across and 8.25 inches long, offers different levels of pleasure, and the whole toy vibrates at multiple speeds with a simple, twistable controller. It runs on two AAA batteries and is fully waterproof.

Note that this toy is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is sturdy, easy to clean, and keeps the toy affordable. But PVC sex toys are not recommended for regular, long-term use because they contain phthalates that can affect the body's hormone balance.

Price at time of publication: $25

Best Panties

We-Vibe Moxie

We-Vibe Moxie


Why We Like It: This wearable vibrator magnetically clips to underwear for secure placement.

It’s Worth Noting: The connected app can be finicky.

Add a little spice to date night with this wearable panty vibrator. It easily slides into panties to cup the vulva comfortably while sitting or standing. It’s secured with a magnetic clip so you can position the toy's vibration surface right against the clitoris. The toy is then controllable by a partner via the We-Connect app or remote control. 

The Moxie can run ten rumbly vibration levels, which is ideal for deep clitoral stimulation. You can customize vibration patterns via the We-Connect app, and the toy is also whisper-quiet for the ultimate secret out in public. 

It's made from body-safe silicone and is phthalate-free, BPA-free, and latex free.

Price at time of publication: $129

How We Selected

To determine what vibrators were safest and most pleasurable, we first spoke with two experts in the world of sexual health and pleasure:

  • Staci Tanouye, MD, a practicing OBGYN in Jacksonville, Florida
  • Kate Balestrieri, Ph.D., licensed psychologist, certified sex therapist and founder of Modern Intimacy

Based on their insight into what benefits a vibrator can offer and what makes for a safe and quality item, we leaned on our years of first-hand knowledge as product journalists in the space.

What to Know About Vibrators

Features to Look for When Shopping for a Vibrator


Which style vibrator you want is a personal choice:

  • Bullet vibrators are small, discreet, and give precise contact with the clitoris. 
  • Suction vibrators mimic the sucking of oral sex via vacuum or sonic pulses.
  • Tongue style mimics the licking of oral sex along with control over its position. 
  • Rabbits are highly popular as they offer simultaneous clitoral and G-spot stimulation.
  • Anal beads provide a unique sensation of being full, which many people love, and can even offer G-spot or P-sot stimulation through the anal canal. 
  • Prostate massagers help deliver an intense orgasm, especially for people with a penis.
  • Cock rings put pressure around the base of the penis and can increase the strength of an erection and delay orgasm, all while increasing pleasure.


You’ll want buttons on the vibrator that are easy to access and press so you can change the intensity level or vibration setting at the moment. Some people may also like vibrators with a remote control or an app for their partner to control, especially for long-distance relationships.

Intensity levels and vibration patterns

Look for a toy with at least three intensity levels, although some people may want even more. A variety of vibration patterns may also be important to some people when choosing a vibrator. Some app-compatible vibrators also let you customize and save your own vibration patterns.

Materials to Look for and Avoid 

While dildos and other toys come in materials like stainless steel and glass, the vast majority of vibrators are going to be silicone, as they are slick, easy to clean, rechargeable, and comfortable, says Dr. Tanouye. Look for body-safe silicone, which is higher-quality and won’t break down against skin contact or cause an allergy.

You might also see toys made from other plastics like PVC, which are unsuitable for long-term use. Keep in mind that silicone-based lubes break down the silicone toy material faster, so opt for water- or oil-based lubes.

How to Clean a Vibrator 

Be sure to read the packaging when you buy a vibrator, as each toy can have different cleaning and care requirements, Balestrieri says. Generally, most vibrators can be cleaned with a lightly soaped cloth and warm water.

Your Questions, Answered

What is the best vibrator?

The best vibrator is a matter of personal preference as everyone is different in what they find pleasurable and what level of intensity they may like, Dr. Tanouye explains to Health. Many people with vulvas like a rabbit vibrator as it delivers clitoral and G-spot stimulation at the same time. Bullet vibrators are straightforward, discreet, and precisely stimulate your clitoris. Others may like internal stimulation, so they want a thruster or a wand. Meanwhile, people with a penis might find prostate massagers help deliver an intense orgasm, while cock rings can help put pressure at the base of the penis to give a stronger erection and delay orgasm.

How do you use a vibrator?

Use a vibrator in whatever way feels pleasurable to you—whether that’s stimulation to the clitoris or perineum, penetration in the vagina or anus, vibrations on the G-spot from the inside, or stimulating the prostate from inside the anus.
