A Guide to Our 4 Bestselling Vibrators
There are a lot of vibrator options out there—and an increasing number of them are beautiful, innovative, and more than get the job done. So the (fun) work is finding which is right for you.
To add some helpful data to your search, we thought we’d share the four 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 waterproof, in case you decide to take playtime to the tub.
We’ll take one of each.
OUR BESTSELLING VIBRATORS
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.Dame Products Arc G-Spot Vibrator goop, $115SHOP NOW
The Classic Bullet Vibrator
This bullet-shaped vibrator is simple to use and designed for first-timers: 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 AAA gets you four hours of play—you’ll want to keep a stockpile on hand.Smile Makers The Millionaire goop, $55SHOP NOW
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.We-Vibe Nova 2 Vibrator goop, $149SHOP NOW
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.Womanizer Womanizer Premium goop, $199SHOP NOW
