Sexual play is a beautiful thing, and there’s no reason the vibrators we use can’t be, too. We especially like the ones that are chic enough to leave out intentionally on a nightstand. Sex toy décor, anyone?

From a toy that’s cute and heart-shaped to one that can be worn as a necklace, here are five gorgeously designed vibrators that—at first or second glance—don’t look like vibrators.

  • 1

    The Heartthrob

    goop Wellness, $98

    This heart-shaped toy is small but packs a lot of power into its two separate motors. The first is a regular vibrating motor. The second creates a unique tapping motion that ranges from a gentle beat to intense drumming.

    Viva la Vulva

    goop Wellness, $98

    Viva la Vulva’s distinctive arch has a functional purpose: It’s designed for you (or a partner) to rock against the body and heighten sensation as you build to an orgasm. It’s a good pick if you’re looking for a toy with an element of active play that not every vibrator has.

    The Pearl

    Tabu, $95

    The Pearl is understated—it looks like it could be an elegant paperweight. A few things to know about it: It’s wildly strong for something this small, and it’s a little firm and a little flexible, which gives it just the right amount of resistance. The Pearl is also wrapped with a thick layer of soft silicone, so it feels excellent against your vulva.

    Vesper 2

    Crave, $98

    Crave’s chic bullet-shaped pendant goes from night out to night in. That is: It’s a vibrator designed to be worn as a necklace. It’s made of stainless steel, finished in 24-karat yellow or rose gold, waterproof, and easy to clean. Now in its second generation and stronger than ever, Vesper 2 is known for being quiet. You can recharge it quickly with any USB port (a full charge lasts about 40 minutes).

    Ora 3

    LELO, $179

    Ora 3’s unique round shape is designed to be held comfortably—loop a finger or two through the middle and position it wherever you please. And it doesn’t just vibrate: A rotating nub sits under its soft silicone surface and rotates to mimic the feeling of a partner’s tongue.
