You won't want to put it down
With nearly half the population of the UK owning a sex toy, it’s clear we all love a bit of one on one time. Even our favourite celebrities love a sex toy – though we bet you’ll never guess who blew $6,000 on one.
Sadly, unless you’re one of the rich and famous, you probably won’t be able to shell out quite as much for one yourself. Not to worry though, as we’ve done the hard work for you (excuse the pun) and found the best (and slightly more affordable) vibrators to treat yourself to.
That being said, shopping for the best vibrator for you is no easy task – especially when there are SO many options to choose from. So, we asked the lovely experts at LELO for a bit of guidance along the way.
Here’s your ultimate guide to finding the best vibrator for you.
GIGI™ 2 G-Spot vibrator, £119.00, LELO
Once you get to grips with them, G-spot vibrators can be a God send. G-spot vibrators are designed to stimulate the nerve endings that lie towards the front wall of the vagina, which is why they usually feature a slightly curved tip.
The GIGI™ 2 is officially the world’s best selling G-spot vibrator, with it’s specially designed flattened tip making it most pleasure seekers go-to-gadget. The dynamic shape of this product also allows it to be used for external clitoral stimulation, making it one of the most versatile but satisfying sex toys out there.
TIANI™ 2 Remote control vibrator, £119.00, LELO
Remote controlled vibrators are great if you fancy a lazy DIY sesh, or spicing up your love life 50 Shades of Grey style. In fact, according to LELO it’s one of the reasons they’re such a popular vibrator with couples.
‘There’s an element of power play here too. To wear one of these wireless vibes and then hand the remote control to a partner is, essentially, to submit control of your personal pleasure to someone you trust. That’s a very sexy thought,’ our expert explains.
Each of LELO’s remote controlled pleasure products works at a distance of up to 12 meters, meaning they work through walls and underwater. So you really can have some fun with them! The main vibrators are all rechargeable and the remote controls are battery powered, with up to two hours of batter life per play.
SMART Wand Medium, £119.00, LELO
The very first wand-style massagers were sold as exactly what they said they were; electric massagers for the back and shoulders. Of course, that’s not quite how they’re used now-a-days, with the wand vibrator having one of the most iconic silhouettes when it comes to the modern sex toy.
Our LELO expert recommends using your wand ‘through underwear or by “muffling” the power of the vibrations with a towel’ if you’re a first time user though, as the vibrators are so much stronger than most other sex toys.
Wand vibrators are also a great tool for edging, also known as orgasm control, which is the practice of bringing yourself (or your partner) to the edge of an orgasm and then easing up on the stimulation in order to maintain arousal.
HULA Beads, £149.00, LELO
As sex toys go, some fall much more neatly into categories than others. EGG vibrators generally apply to any sort of small, spherical or egg-shaped sex toy that is inserted into the body.
HULA beads are a popular choice amongst couples, as they are a form of a remote controlled vibrator. The shape of the HULA beads vibrator allows them to revolve inside the body, maximising the pleasure experienced against the G-spot.
Powerplay 10 function bullet vibrator, £14.99, Lovehoney
The bullet vibrator is the perfect tool for beginners as it’s designed to externally stimulate the clitoris
The Powerplay 10 function bullet vibrator from Lovehoney offers as it promises, 10 powerful functions, 3 speeds and 7 thrill-inducing patterns of vibration designed for your pleasure.
Satisfyer Pro Penguin USB rechargeable clitoral stimulator
Much like the bullet vibrator, clitoral vibrators are designed to externally stimulate the clitoris, but do so through mimicking the feelings experienced during oral sex.
The hollow tip allows for the vacuum technology to really massage the clitoris, and with 11 modes to choose from you’re bound to find the right setting for you or your partner.
One of the first sex toys to come out of 2018, the Satisfyer Pro G-Spot rabbit vibrator is the perfect device to help you get lost in wonderland.
Based on Charlotte York from SATC’s favourite sex toy (you’ll find yourself just as addicted, we’re sure), Satisfyer have given the rabbit a new lease of life with their latest design.
The G-Spot rabbit vibrator brings the pleasure of dual action, combining penetration and clitoral stimulation at the same time.
Some vibrators feel great but then, just as you’re getting going, fwoop!, it slips out of your hand. Not with Lelo’s Alia. It’s ring-shaped so you can hold it easily. No orgasm will slip through your fingers with this bad boy!
If you’ve ever had the unhappy experience of a vibrator’s battery running out during a session of self-love, then you’ll appreciate the value of a mains-powered device. Take all the time in the world with the Deluxe Magic Wand Vibrator, which can tease you with soft fluttery vibrations then lets you increase the power until the vibes are so strong and fast there’s no way you can hold back.
Some women like to use the same vibrator every time, and that’s fine, but if you’re the kind of person who likes to shake things up every now and again, this is the sex toy for you. It has double motors that together work to give you an option of 20 different settings, so you can find your way to orgasm in a different way each time.
