A Guide to Our 5 Bestselling Vibrators

There are a lot of vibrator options out there—and an increasing number of them are beautiful and innovative and more than get the job done. So the (fun) work is finding out which is right for you.

To add some helpful data to your search, we thought we’d share the five that goop readers love most, from a classic bullet vibrator with simple settings to a tricked-out rabbit-shaped one with customizable everything. Each is made with super smooth, body-safe silicone; offers a number of speeds and patterns; and is water-resistant, in case you decide to take playtime to the tub.

We’ll take one of each.


  1. 1

    The Double-Sided Wand Vibrator

    Yes, our very own goop vibrator is far and away our top seller. One end of this powerful toy has a wonder-ball wand with deep, rumbly vibrations for external stimulation. The other side is flexible and provides powerful and precise vibration for targeted clitoral stimulation. (You can use the slim end to penetrate one to three inches, too.) Each end of the wand offers eight pulsating patterns that vary in intensity, with subtle, ergonomically placed controls for uninterrupted navigation. And because nothing will kill your vibe like your vibrator’s battery dying in the heat of the moment, we designed an LED battery display into ours: Each light indicates fifteen minutes of time left on the clock. Four lights mean you’ve got an about an hour; one light means you have fifteen minutes.

    The Adjustable
    Rabbit-Shaped Vibrator

    The Nova 2 by We-Vibe is a rabbit-shaped vibrator with longer “ears” designed to provide constant contact with your body as you move. The long head is firm and adjustable, which allows you to shape the angle just right for your internal pressure points, and the short head bends, which keeps it in continuous contact with your clitoris as you explore different levels of penetration. Each head has its own motor that you can control independently, with ten vibration patterns and thirteen intensity levels. Its surface feels smooth and gentle on the skin, its ergonomic grip makes it easy to control from any angle, and it has a travel lock, so it will never turn on when you don’t want it to.

    This one also comes with an associated app. Which is sexier than it sounds: When you download We-Connect and sync it to your Nova 2 over Wi-Fi, you can program whatever custom patterns feel good to you. And while this vibrator was originally made for solo play, a partner can join in from across the room (or across the globe) by operating Nova 2 remotely—just send them an invite from the app, and they can control the vibrations while you play.

    The Air-Pulsing Clitoral Vibrator

    The Womanizer is a clitoral vibrator that feels a lot like oral sex. How it works: Turn it on and place the stimulation head over the clitoris to form a seal—we recommend doing so with a water- or oil-based lube, like Nécessaire’s Sex Gel or Province Apothecary’s Sex Oil—and let it do its thing. (That “thing”: emitting pulses of air and light vibrations that create a sucking sensation around the clitoris.) It fits nicely in the palm of your hand and is nearly effortless to operate. This is especially true if you turn it on autopilot, which switches up the vibration patterns and intensity to mimic the variation of partnered oral sex. It’s made with “smart silence” technology, meaning it switches on only when in contact with your skin and shuts off if you need to set it aside. But while the toy may be silent, you might not be—we’ve found it’s a consistent path to an intensely satisfying orgasm.

    The Perfectly Curved Vibrator

    Made with Dame’s strongest motor yet, the Arc is here to help you explore what feels good for you. Its deep, rumbly vibrations are designed to be enjoyed both internally and externally: It’s curved to hit sensitive spots on the vaginal wall, and the squishy, bulb-shaped head comes to a ridge for targeted clitoral stimulation. You can cycle through five speeds and five different vibration patterns and take your time finding what feels best—it can go for more than an hour and a half on a single charge.

    The Classic Bullet Vibrator

    Bullet-shaped vibrators are great for first-timers, and this one is no exception: You just press the button on the end to start, press again to cycle between modes, and explore different feelings from there. For internal stimulation, hold it by its end to insert it into the vagina—it feels especially good pressed against the vagina’s front wall, where it can bump up against the internal structure of the clitoris on the other side. (If you were ever taught that the clitoris is pea-size: That’s inaccurate. Every body is different, definitely, but typically the clitoris extends about ten centimeters from the head to the tip of each of its two internal ends.) You can also enjoy the vibrations externally: The rounded tip feels good for targeted stimulation, or you can flatten the length of the vibrator against the vulva for broader, less-intense sensation. Unlike the rest of the bunch here, this vibrator is battery-powered. One AA gets you four hours of play—you’ll want to keep a stockpile on hand.
