Which is the Best Vibrator?

Which is the Best Vibrator?

The most common question we get is: "Which is the best vibrator?"

Customers are somewhat disappointed when we explain that there is no easy answer. When you have a choice of a cherry-picked selection of the very best toys the industry has to offer, there is not one single toy that is better than all the rest. They are all great!

What works for one person won't necessarily work in the same way for someone else. Desire and pleasure are very subjective. Your friend may love the latest 'MonsterDongDildo,' and it might work well for her. But if you are not into oversized playthings without vibration, 'MonsterDongDildo' won't work for you...

Instead of poiting to the latest or most expensive toy (because the most pricey doesn't always equal the best), we answer the question with one of our own:

What would you like your vibrator to do for you?

The answer may seem obvious (duh!), but actually requires a little thought and perhaps an internal dialogue with your sexy bits. Would  like an external toy, or an internal toy, or a vibrating toy or a toy that warms up? So many questions!

Are clitoral vibrators the best?

Clitoral vibrators are great. About 75% of women say they need clitoral stimulation in just the right way to orgasm. This may mean continuous high-pitched buzzing or fun patterns like pulsing. It depends on what your clitoris likes (for future reference: your clit should always have a say in the vibrator you choose). 

It's a bit like choosing a new dish at a favourite restaurant. You have a sneaky suspicion that you'll love it, but until you've had that first mouthful, you won't know.

A small clit vibe with a selection of settings is the best choice for someone who doesn't want a toy for internal use or wants something a li'l extra during penetrative sex.

Are G-spot vibrators the best?

G-spot vibrators are fab, especially if you love G-spot play or want to coax this elusive spot out of its hiding place.

G-spot vibes have been designed for internal use, but there is no reason why they can't also offer clitoral pleasure. Just because it has a shaft doesn't mean you're limited to using it only on the one pleasure (G) spot.

Experiment with your chosen vibe. Vibrations can be super-helpful for stuffed sinuses (true!), sore necks or tired feet. The only limit to what sex toys can do is your imagination.

Are rabbit vibrators the best?

Rabbit vibrators are the most sold sex toys in the world. More women have had their first orgasm, or their most intense orgasm, with a rabbit-style vibrator than any other type.

A rabbit-style vibe is a toy with dual stimulators. A shaft goes inside the vagina, and a clitoral stimulator reaches over and teases the clit.

The internal shaft often comes with an additional feature such as rotating beads, rippling or pulsing, which can elevate the status of the pleasure enjoyed to 'mind-blowing'.

Dual-style vibes can look a little bulky and intimidating compared to small clit vibes, but they are great toys. If you are curious, we recommend something like this slimmer Rabbit vibe.

Are waterproof vibes the best?

Yes - if you prefer pleasure in the bath or shower. For many, the only private time they get involves the bathroom, so a waterproof vibrator can be a godsend.

Not all sex toys are submergible, so it's always best to check a toy's tech spec if this is important for you. However, if you aren't planning on jiggling your jewel under the waterline, it might not matter so much.

Are rechargeable vibrators the best?

Categorically, yes. Plugging your favourite muffin buffer into a USB port or wall socket is a fantastic way of keeping it ready for action. You never know when the mood for a 'menage a moi' is going to strike! Batteries run out at the most inopportune moments, and anyone who has been there and done that will agree a rechargeable vibe is best.

Again, the choice between batteries or sockets is subjective and it could be that you prefer batteries - which is perfectly ok.

Are high-powered vibrators the best?

Not necessarily. For someone who likes a gentle buzz, a strong vibrator can be a mood killer. 

If you're unsure, we recommend choosing a vibrator with intensity controls. Going from gentle to intense and then back to gentle is a sexy way of teasing out incredible orgasms.

Are luxury vibrators the best?

Like many things in life, you get what you pay for. We have seen a number of unfavourable reviews of the £1-vibe from a well-known high street retailer, with many deeming it "rubbish." This is understandable - a vibrator costing £1 hasn't been built to last. It might even conk out during first use - it happens.

High-end vibrators like Lelo are built to last. The motors are near-silent, the materials used are body-safe, designs are beautiful... Lelo toys are stunning but come at a hefty price.

Choosing a mid-priced vibrator, like our range of Sh! toys, you are guaranteed a great product at purse-friendly prices. An orgasm doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg - but £1 is perhaps unlikely to get you there...

There is no one vibrator that is "the best" - but considering the points above, you'll be able to confidently choose a vibrator that is best for you.
