Top 5 Best Vibrators
These are the vibrators that came close to perfection… you just can’t get better than this!
Where do I begin? This toy is unbelievable. Immediately upon opening, the Mystery Vibe Crescendo comes in the sexiest, classiest packaging I have ever seen. It comes in a sleek black package, that opens to reveal the toy itself and a small note that says in gold lettering “A World Of Pleasure Awaits You”. I have never been turned on by packaging, but I felt so chic, sexy, and kinky. I couldn’t wait to use the toy, and with a unique design, six different motors, 192 vibrating combinations, and all the features of a high end toy (like waterproof, rechargeable, and remote controlled) this is a must have vibrator for every girl’s bedside drawer.
2. We-Vibe Sync
This toy is gorgeous, unique, and everything I could have ever dreamed of. Like the We-Vibe 4, the We-Vibe Sync is a couple’s vibrator that’s designed to be worn during sex. You put one end inside you to hit your g-spot, while the other end curls around to hit your clitoris. Both ends vibrate, giving you g-spot and clitoral pleasure all in one. Yet, unlike it’s predecessors, the Sync can be adjusted to fit your body at two different points, to better hit you g-spot and clitoris, and keep comfortable and in place during sex. It’s also remote controlled, app controlled, waterproof, and rechargeable – so you can use this in almost an endless combination of ways.
3. LELO Iris
The Iris vibrator, created by trusted sexperts at LELO, is sure to please. With it’s petal-like shape that increases stimulation and provides a natural, ergonomic fit, this toy is designed to make you orgasm – over and over and over again. It also has a variety of quiet vibrations, so it’s perfect for those who want to explore all kinds of sensations – or happen to live with roommates. If you’re looking for an incredibly luxury vibrator that will totally indulge your most intimate areas, and is especially fabulous at targeting the g-spot, LELO’s Iris is a top choice!
I was super excited to try Hot Octopuss’s Queen Bee. Clit stimulators are my favorite, and as a vibe that offers deep, rumbly vibrations and a sleek, aesthetically pleasing look, this sex toy sounded like it would be perfect to add to my collection! This toy definitely met my expectations, and had some added benefits like a piston-style motion, wand-strength vibrations, and all the high-quality features you’d expect of a luxury toy. It’s waterproof, rechargeable, has a lot of settings, and is versatile! If you’re looking for your next luxury clit vibe, especially one that packs a lot of power, check out The Queen Bee.
Looking for a vibe that’s perfect for a self-quickie? The Broad City Vulvarine Rabbit Vibrator is a self-pleasure tool for the woman who wants to get off with minimal effort, and it works well for partnered play! Turn The Vulvarine on and it’s “go” time in just a few short minutes. Not only is this a device for pleasure, but for a woman in my shoes, it’s a quick reminder that your vagina isn’t dead and motherhood hasn’t killed your mojo for self-love.
Honorable Mention – The Satisfyer Line
Clitoral stimulators tend to be a fan favorite. They’re straightforward, easy to use, and super pleasurable. The Satisfyer line is a twist on clitoral pleasure that using a pulsating suction rather than vibration to bring sensation. This type of toy isn’t for everyone, though. Some love it, others find it to be not so satisfying. If you like the suction of oral sex, you may want to give it a try! Of this line, the Satisfyer Pro Penguin is the smallest, cheapest, and best for beginners. For more intense sensation, the Pro Deluxe is more powerful, with updated features, and the Satisfyer 2 is the most powerful of them all.
Top 6 Best Other Sex Toys
These are the toys that came close to perfection… you just can’t get better than this!
The world’s first Guybrator! When my partner and I previously tried Hot Octopuss’s Pulse II Duo, we loved the unique design and concept. We’ve always loved male toys, and as a girl with too many toys to count, my guy has tended to feel a little left out on the fun. Really, all that’s typically available to him is “life-like” sleeves that haven’t given us much luck. So, we were really excited to try the unique design of the Pulse, the world’s first “Guybrator”. This toy uses unique oscillations (similar to vibrations, but more of a piston motion) to stimulate the penis – and when used with a partner, can also provide some interesting uses for play. We loved this toy, and found it to be a very unique and pleasurable experience compared to traditional masturbatory sleeves.
2. Minna kGoal
Kegel exercises offer so many benefits, from helping with incontinence post-pregnancy to easing period cramps to working those muscles in order to make sex more pleasurable. While I know how to do Kegels on my own, I’ve been interested in checking out a Bluetooth pelvic floor exerciser to really help me track my pelvic floor workouts and to ensure I’m doing them to the best of my ability. Because of this, I was so excited to try the Minna kGoal, and it did not disappoint! (BTW, this awesome toy is cousin to the Minna Ola and the Minna Limon!)
I’m definitely an anal newbie, so when I was looking for a plug, I knew that I needed something small from a brand I trust. Tantus is definitely that brand, and their Little Flirt plug did not disappoint! A smaller version of their Flirt plug, the Little Flirt is the perfect stepping stone or anal newbies or those who enjoy just a little backdoor stimulation.
TENGA is well-known for their high-quality male sex toys, but has recently expanded into creating toys for women in their Iroha line, as well as toys for couples – with their newly launch SVR Cock Ring! This ring has all the marks of a high-end toy, with a great design, range of vibrations, and waterproof and rechargeable features. It’s brilliantly designed to please both partners, and be a seamless addition to your sex life. Whether you’re just beginning to try cock rings and want some luxury features, or are looking for a versatile ring that’s expertly crafted for pleasure – TENGA’s has you covered.
We recently shared some of the latest male sex toy innovations from TENGA with you – their super gorgeous and reversible 3D Spiral, and their simple and disposable Vacuum Cup. Both toys are a huge upgrade to the traditional male masturbator sleeves, with unique features specifically designed with your guy’s pleasure in mind. Yet, their TENGA Flip Zero might just be our favorite toy yet, with tons of texture for the guy who wants intense stimulation, plus a super strong vacuum sensation. With another perfectly detailed design, high-quality materials that give it a fabulous feel, and an easy to clean build, this toy is the perfect gift for the guy in your life that loves to explore unique experiences!
Kegel Balls have always been that type of sex toy that has always interested me. Is it really a sex toy or is it for exercise? Or both? I jumped at the chance to review the Miss on the Go and I’m glad I did. Add to it that they can be controlled via the Miss On the Go App from your android or apple device and you’ve got a great little toy.
Top 4 Best for Beginners
These are toys that are under $75, reasonably high-quality, with moderate vibrations and functions that will probably please a beginner. Here’s our top 4.
- Emojibator – Like just about any other basic bitch, I enjoy a healthy dose of emoji. I’ve been known to spice up (or ruin) a sext by throwing in “dat eggplant” next to the seductive lips emoji. So of course, the second I found out that there was a vibrator shaped like the famous eggplant emoji, I knew I had to add this beauty to my collection. Whether you’re a beginner looking for something simple and fun for a first toy or just obsessed with emoji like I am, the Emojibator is the toy for you.
- Lovehoney Desire – When I first pulled the Lovehoney Desire out of the box, the quality of this toy was immediately apparent. It’s made of silky smooth silicone, has an ergonomic design, is rechargeable, and a variety of vibration patterns and intensities. If you’re looking for a sleek, satisfying g-spot vibrator, give this one a try!
- 50 Shades of Grey Delicious Tingles – Whether you’re in need of a new waterproof vibrator for solo pleasure or hoping are to add more fun to partnered play, the Fifty Shades Darker Delicious Tingles is a perfect match. Though petite, it houses a range of impressive vibration patterns and twelve powerful intensity levels.
- Jopen Lust L2.5 – This is a compact bullet massager designed for discreet pleasure on any external erogenous zone. While this vibe is little, its motor delivers powerful vibrations that are a reminder you can never judge a book by its cover.
Best 5 BDSM
- Bijoux Indiscrets Maze Body Harnesses – Try the Maze X and Maze H. Whether you’re going to the club, a play party, or the bedroom… accessorize with kink gear that’s street-friendly, sexy, and shows that there’s more edge to me than meets the eye.
- Fetish Fantasy Gold Vibrating Cock Ring – This ring provides sufficient clit stimulation, while incorporating an edgy BDSM style with black, studded, flexible silicone. Although it only has three simple vibration patterns, they are sure to please and great for beginners who prefer lighter vibrations. It’s also very inexpensive!
- Sex Kitten Silicone Ball Gag – This gag is made of my favorite material (so it’s body-safe and easy to clean) – plus has an adjustable strap made of comfortable leather that’s also durable, so you’ll be perfectly silenced.
- XOXO Paddle – This adorable yet durable paddle puts them, and your homemade spanking toys, to shame. It’s flexible, thin, and lightweight, yet still a firm paddle that can pack a nice sting. The “XOXO” design can even mark you with its pattern if hit hard enough!
Lube of the Year
We are totally obsessed with Wicked Sensual Care this year – once again! They won our Best Lube of 2015, and came back this year with Ultra Silicone Lube and Peppermint Cocoa flavor. Some of our favorites from their line are the Salted Caramel and Candy Apple flavored lubricants, as well as their Ultra Chill and Aqua Heat sensation lubricants. They also have a fabulous Jelle anal lubricant, sensitive lubricant, Toy Love lubricant, and toy cleaner. Check out all the products we’ve reviewed by Wicked here!
Toy Company of the Year
We were consistently blown away with the high quality and powerful vibrations of WeVibe’s toys this year. So, we have no hesitation naming WeVibe our favorite toy company of the year. Their products live up to their quality promise, delivering power and pleasurable designs, topped off with luxury accents – like rechargeable features, couples vibes, waterproof designs, interactive apps, nice quality packaging, and more. We’ve reviewed the Tango (a powerful bullet, our #1 best toy of 2014, and still a top favorite), the Touch (a handheld clitoral vibe, and our #2 best toy of 2015), the WeVibe Classic (their original couples vibrator, and our #3 best toy of this year), the WeVibe 4 (the redesigned couples vibrator, and our #7 best toy of 2014), the Rave (an internal vibrator, and our #4 best toy of this year), the Nova (a rabbit vibrator, and our honorable mention this year), and the Tango Pleasure Mates (attachments to the Tango, and our #3 best non-vibrating toy this year) – all of which were perfection, or very close to it!
My Favorite Review
OMG Yes, the interactive site to enhance your orgasmic pleasure, was by far the coolest thing we reviewed this year. I brought five virtual women to orgasm in 15 minutes… and learned all about my body, and how to make MY orgasms even better, with one amazing, must-have thing for every woman and her partners. OMG Yes, the ultimate resource for learning about the practical application of female pleasure. It has pro-tips on improving communication about intimacy with your partner, as well as developing your own orgasmic potential, with an interface that’s beautiful, classy, intersectional, and includes virtual vulvas.
The pro tips are the result of a compilation of over 2000 interviews and surveys performed by The Kinsey Institute and Indiana University to find out more about female pleasure. Basically, a group of researchers, filmmakers, engineers, designers and sexologists identified taboos present in the way we are socialized to discuss female gratification, and wanted to create a ‘vocabulary’ that would better describe the way in which women experience pleasure and orgasm.
Seriously, you need to check out OMG Yes – right now!
Most Unique, Innovative, & Creative
Kiiroo’s Long Distance Couples toys combine technology and toys in an amazing way to bring long-distance couples remote, interactive pleasure. With new “teledildonic” technology, Kirroo produced Pearl (a female vibrator) and Onyx (a male masturbator) which allows couples who aren’t together geographically the ability to get it on. They also work in male/male or female/female combinations!
We didn’t review any novelty or humorous toys this year… but we’ll be looking out for double the trouble next year!
If you want to dive into the world of champagne, roses, bubble baths, and massages… look no further than Kama Sutra, the beautiful pleasure products designed to inspire desire and intimacy. From massage candles and oils to luxurious bubble baths and beauty products, Kama Sutra has thought of it all!
My Man’s Favorite
My partner loved the Aneros Vice, and I especially loved joining the experience. Guys, if you are looking for a toy that is specifically designed to target your prostate, the Vice is ready to please. Ladies, if you’re looking to get in on the action, get a little more intimate with your man, and learn more about the levels of his pleasure — time to give the Vice a whirl. The vibrations aren’t for beginners, but you can always leave the vibrator off and let the silicone toy massage your prostate all by itself. I strongly suggest this toy to anyone in search of a prostate stimulator and definitely plan on using this in the future with my partner. Enjoy!
There you have it! A quick guide of all our favorites and most hated’s of the last year.
