But now is the time to think about a new, possibly more exciting vibrator. The technology has come a long way, especially in the last few years as women enjoying self-pleasure has, you know, stopped being frowned upon. Ugh.
From whisper-quiet vibrators practically designed for those share house situations to clitoral stimulators that suck and blow, there are some great options in the sex toy market for upgrading your solo time. Oh, and a few old favourites that have really gone the distance. Here are some top rated vibrators to consider if you're up for making a new purchase.
1. Womanizer Premium Clitoral Stimulator
There's a reason the Womanizer vibrator collection is a cult buy globally. The brand's "pleasure air technology" changed the game when it came to clitoral stimulation - using air pulses to create a sucking sensation, as opposed to relying purely on vibrations. A great buy if standard vibrators just haven't done it for you.
2. Fifty Shades Of Grey Greedy Girl Rabbit Vibrator
Rabbit vibrators might look intimidating, but are actually a great introduction to sex toys. The rabbit ears send vibrations to your clit, while the stem is curved to hit your g-spot. The result? Intense orgasms! The Fifty Shades version allows you to individualise the vibe intensity between the ears and the stem.
3. Dame Eva II Vibrator
This funny-looking egg vibrator is one of the best for couple play. The "arms" keep it in place over your clitoris, and the small size means it fits neatly between bodies.
4. Mantric Wand Vibrator
Wand vibrators are great for self-pleasuring, and this version features an ergonomic handle with rubber material that gives great grip. Nothing worse than dropping your vibrator at an inopportune time, right?
5. Lovense Lush 2 Egg Vibrator
A flexy wearable, the Lovense vibrator is designed to be used via an app, which allows you (or a partner, oo er) to control the vibration levels. A great handsfree option, it's also teeny enough to fit comfortably as a during-sex toy.
6. Lovehoney Magic Wand
The magic wand style of vibrator has been a top-rated sex toy for years - decades, even. Made famous on Sex and the City, there are now far more modern iterations - like this one from Lovehoney, which features varying styles of vibration from deep pulses to light, consistent vibes.
7. WeVibe Moxie Wearable Vibrator
WeVibe make great sex toys, but the Moxie is our pick in this collection due to its powerful magnets that'll hold it in place in your underwear. Yes, this is a wearable vibrator - attach it and then go to town on yourself remotely using its remote.
