The big, bad world of sex toys may include way more than just vibrators, but vibrators are def some of the heaviest hitters when it comes to pleasure objects. Not only can vibrating sex toys make partnered sex way better, they can also make discovering your own pleasure and sexual exploration way easier. There are a ton of vibrators out there, ranging from butt-specific vibrating toys, vibrating magic wands, smaller bullets, internal toys, rabbits, cock rings, and way more. If you’re looking for more on our favorite sex toys in general, here’s a list of our top 84 sex toy picks (we continually update it, so you can be sure it’s got the latest stuff on there).
When shopping for a vibrator, there are a few general rules to keep in mind. First of all, it’s always better to get a rechargeable vibrator if possible, as it usually means the vibe has way more power and functionality. Battery-operated toys tend to be more on the ~novelty~ scale, whereas vibrators that are rechargeable tend to have a lot more settings, functionality, and overall bang for your buck. Also, y’know, rechargeable toys are more environmentally friendly and reduce waste. We’ve tried to keep most of the toys on this list rechargeable for those specific reasons.
Secondly, always look for body-safe materials with vibrators. A rule of thumb is that you’re probably better off buying a sex toy from a legit site that specializes in sex toys over a novelty site. If it’s going inside you, you want it to be legit. Many body-safe toys are made of either medical-grade silicone or ABS plastic.
Thirdly, if your toy is silicone, stay away from silicone lubes. Silicone or oil-based lubes can degrade the material on your toy, so you wanna be sure to only slick up with water-based formulas.
That’s pretty much it! Now that you’re probably chomping at the bit to dive into it, here’s a rundown of some of our favorite vibrating toys.
