Investing in the best vibrators reigns supreme as the easiest way to enhance masturbation, foreplay and partnered sex. Stat. Necessary, since orgasms are a crucial part of your wellness regime, acting as a mood-booster, natural pain killer and sleep enhancer.
Of course, you’re probably already masturbating or having great penetrative sex (or both), but there’s always room for experimentation and improvement. And that’s where high-quality vibrators come in. Their impressively powerful motors serve-up heightened orgasms on tap.
Of course, the sex toy world is a burgeoning one, with brands from Dame to LELO all offering their own bestsellers. As such, shopping for a new vibrator can be a tad overwhelming. So, we’ve done the hard (~ahem~) work for you and tested a whole bunch of clit vibrators, rabbit vibrators, bullet vibrators, couples vibrators and remote control vibrators to whittle things down to the best. This lot deserve a spot in your bedside table drawer. TikTok-trending Rose toy included.

What type of vibrator is best?
Before you settle on a new vibrator too quickly, it’s worth getting clued up on the different types of vibrator – and exactly how each of them will change your sex life. Forget what you thought you knew: not all vibrators are made equal.
- Bullet vibrators are for clitoral stimulation and external stimulation of erogenous zones. They’re small, discrete and often quite affordable. They’re also great for first time vibrator users, ‘cos they’re pretty simple and don’t tend to have too many settings to confuse things. “They can also be paired with other compatible toys (such as a cock ring) to make them vibrate,” adds Annabelle. We recommend this classic bullet vibrator from Smile Makers.
- Clitoral vibrators tend to be larger than bullet vibrators, but they serve up more powerful vibrators. They also often use sonic wave technology to create airwaves around your clitoris and suck it upward, stimulating the feeling of oral sex and foreplay, and can, says Annabelle, “lead to heightened stimulation.” For really good vibrations, we recommend LELO’s Sila.
- Rabbit vibrators serve up internal and external pleasure at the same time, which can result in a blended orgasm. The main shaft of the vibrator is insertable, while the rabbit ears stimulate your clitoris simultaneously.
- Wand vibrators are versatile vibrators designed for external use only. They’re often quite large and not always cordless, but they can be used all over the body to stimulate areas like the vulva and nipples. Wand vibrators vibrate at lower frequencies than bullet vibrators, for an intense experience. We recommend this mains powered magic wand vibrator from Lovehoney. Annabelle’s tip? “They can still be used as a massager if you want!”
- G-spot vibrators are designed for internal use and, Annabelle explains, “are often curved in a particular way to make [your G-spot] that much easier to reach. That is, the cluster of nerves on the front of your vaginal wall. They’re often ergonomic in design. We recommend Smilemakers’ The Tennis Pro for reaching that sensitive area.
What is the best vibrator for sensitive people?
“The first thing a person with a sensitive clitoris needs to look for when buying a vibrator is the available speeds and patterns – a vibrator with a higher range of speeds will give you more chance of finding one that’s right for your level of sensitivity,” explains sex and relationships expert Annabelle.
