Helping people discover their favorite vibrators is a job we take seriously, but we also like to have fun doing it. We’d also like you to have fun doing it. Whether you’re looking for yourself or a partner or a friend, please enjoy our deeply subjective personality guide to vibrators. And keep in mind: Like us, you may contain multitudes.

  1. THE GEMINI

    You’re never boring. There are many reasons for this: You’re good at adapting to other people’s needs, you’re curious and playful, and there’s a duality to almost every aspect of your personality. You’re popular.

    What your vibrator does: Our Double-Sided Wand Vibrator is the ultimate intimate massager—one end has a wonder-ball wand with deep, rumbly vibrations for external stimulation, and on the other side, the slim, flexible end provides powerful and precise vibration for clitoral or internal stimulation. Each end of the wand offers eight pulsating patterns that vary in intensity, with subtle, ergonomically placed controls for uninterrupted navigation. And it’s a thing of beauty on a nightstand.

  2. THE CONTROL FREAK

    It’s 2021, and this is a sex toy guide: “Freak” is a compliment. You’re the friend who puts together a twenty-row Google Sheets itinerary for a weekend trip to Palm Springs. You never go with the flow; you resent people who use that expression. It’s not that you don’t like to have fun—you just take responsibility for your own pleasure.

    What your vibrator does: This air-pulsing clitoral vibrator comes with three different-size mouths you can swap out depending on your best fit and preferred sensation. But what makes it unique is how you control its varied sucking sensations: Apply a bit of water-based lube, cup the suction mouth around your clitoris, and give the device a squeeze. (It’s controlled by a pressure sensor.) When you find the intensity you like best, you can lock it in with a single click. Five preprogrammed pulsation modes are there for you if you feel like letting loose.

  3. THE GRANDE DAME

    Timeless and chic. You don’t like to get your hands dirty if you don’t have to. You keep a standing biweekly gel manicure appointment.

    What your vibrator does: Wands provide a powerful rumbly external vibration, which is good for those who need more stimulation to get off. But the issue with most traditional wands is that they need to be plugged into a wall (bummer town), plus they’re usually heavy and huge. Enter Le Wand Petite: It has all the same power in a smaller size that’s lightweight and easy to maneuver, and it has a flexible neck that bends along with your movements.

  4. THE CHARISMATIC

    Everyone is drawn to you. You’re well-versed in the Brené Brown canon and you also listen to Sex with Emily. You radiate warmth.

    What your vibrator does: Tilt has two independently controlled motors—one in the plug end for stimulation of the G-spot or the prostate, and another on the longer, outer arm that can be used to stimulate the clitoris or the perineum. It lies very flat to the body when it’s inserted—and it’s designed to remain in place as you explore. And it has a warming function, which increases blood flow, making it easier to relax and eventually climax.

  5. THE STRAIGHT SHOOTER

    Big things can come in small packages—and you know that just because something is cute doesn’t mean it can’t also be serious. You work smart, not hard.

    What your vibrator does: Lipstick vibrators are named for their slanted tip, which helps you angle stimulation exactly where you want it. You use one as you would a classic bullet vibrator for external stimulation: The cupped part can be applied for broad vibrations to your whole vulva. The fluttered tip reaches higher speeds when you want precision. And the shaft has two ridges that help make it easy to hold and maneuver.

  6. THE HUSTLER

    “Compromise” isn’t in your vocabulary. You want it all. And you won’t apologize for that.

    What your vibrator does: The external end of the Womanizer Duo is equipped with a cup-shaped head that you place over the clitoris to create a seal. Turn it on and quick pulses of air create a sensation that feels a lot like oral sex. The second, tapered head massages internal points at the same time. There are ten vibration patterns to choose from, and each head’s intensity can be adjusted independently of the other’s.

  7. THE BIG PERSONALITY

    Haters call you “too much,” but that’s on them.

    What your vibrator does: A riff on the classic rabbit vibrator, Nova 2 is made with longer “ears” designed to provide constant contact both internally and externally as you move. Its long head is firm and adjustable, which allows you to shape the angle just right for internal pressure points, and the short head bends, which keeps it on your clitoris as you explore different levels of penetration. Each head has its own motor that you can control independently. It’s a lot of stimulation in both places.

  8. THE TASKMASTER

    You love a to-do list. You sync your calendar with your partner’s and plan every hour of your day two weeks in advance. Everything in life is about the finish line, and you’d like to get there sooner rather than later.

    What your vibrator does: The Womanizer is an excellent pulse-and-suction clitoral stimulator. How it works: Turn it on and place the stimulating head over the clitoris to form a seal—we recommend doing so with a water- or oil-based lube—and let it do its thing. It works quickly and is nearly effortless to operate. This is especially true if you turn it on autopilot, which switches up the vibration patterns and intensity to mimic the variation of partnered oral sex.

  9. THE CONSCIOUS CONSUMER

    Once a month, you shop in bulk at your local co-op. You were the first in your friend group to shun plastic straws. You compost, and we love you for it.

    What your vibrator does: Just like the original Womanizer Premium, the Premium Eco is an air-pulsing clitoral vibrator that feels a lot like oral sex. Functionally, it’s the same, but the Premium Eco is made with a lot less plastic. In addition to plastic-cutting design elements (a shorter charging cable, zero-plastic packaging), its body is made from Biolene, a mostly bio-based polymer. But the real earth-saver is that this vibrator’s rechargeable battery is replaceable—so a few years down the line, when the battery isn’t doing so hot anymore, you can replace it without chucking out the whole device.

  10. THE PRINCESS

    You sleep exclusively on silk pillowcases. And a California-king Avocado mattress with the attached plush pillow-top. You live a deeply satisfying life.

    What your vibrator does: Designed to stimulate not just the clitoris but the entire vulva, the Ballerina fits in your palm so that you can position the narrower end at the tip of your clitoris and the wider end on your vaginal opening. It’s all about the shape and the texture, which feels ultraluxe—a silicone gel coating makes it squishable enough that you could indent it with your finger.

  11. THE FREE SPIRIT

    You have the carefree attitude of someone who spends very little time on the internet. You reframe time spent in traffic as an opportunity to listen to your favorite podcasts and call a friend. You’re a game plus-one for any occasion.

    What your vibrator does: Pom’s soft, flexible body sits comfortably in the palm of your hand, providing targeted clitoral stimulation. It’s built to bend and move—just apply pressure with your fingers and it’ll bend, hugging close.

    You know what you want, and you know how to communicate it. You have Global Entry and a CLEAR membership. By grace of both luck and planning, you never have to wait for anything. Alexa knows your sex playlist.

    What your vibrator does: Finger vibrators, like the Fin, are designed to be effortless, feel natural to wear, and not distract from the moment. Just slide your pointer and middle fingers along the grooves and change the intensity with the power button on top.

  13. THE DEEP THINKER

    Wherever you are, you like to gaze at the moon. You have bookshelves in every room of your apartment—they were tidy when you first moved in, but they can’t contain your every Bookshop whim. You ask only open-ended questions.

    What your vibrator does: Made with Dame’s strongest motor yet, the Arc delivers vibrations that can be enjoyed internally or externally. The best way to use the bulb-shaped head is first externally on your clitoris and vulva to warm up, before inserting it into your vagina for internal exploration and stimulation of the G-spot. (Everyone’s different. Using a toy like this will help you figure out where yours is; it’s less of a precise spot and more of a region on your vagina’s front wall that bumps up against the internal structure of your clitoris.)

  14. THE COOL GIRL

    For more than a decade, you’ve been successfully layering jewelry, and you don’t rely on trends to be stylish. You’re comfortable doing anything alone. Everything in your life is carefully cultivated, and as a result your annual Spotify Wrapped is never embarrassing.

    What your vibrator does: Smooth stainless steel provides a different sensation from that of regular plastic or silicone vibrators. You might prefer it, or you may just like to switch it up. The Wink+ is a sleek bullet vibrator with an optional silicone cap so that you can choose the material based on what you’re after in the moment. And it looks like a chic mascara tube.

  15. THE LIFELONG LEARNER

    You’re always looking to optimize your life, whether through a devotion to The Tools or a rare and sustained commitment to the Duolingo app. No one knows exactly how old you are, and you’ve never cared.

    What your vibrator does: More a tool for pelvic-floor connection than a sex toy, vFit uses red light and gentle warmth to stimulate blood flow and promote intimate well-being. But it vibrates, too. Pair with a clean lube for a nonhormonal, noninvasive approach to improving pelvic floor muscle tone and sexual function.

  16. THE FORMER THEATER KID

    Shy about: nothing. You relish any opportunity to tell a story for a captive audience. You’re either the life of the party or the most annoying person in the room.

    What your vibrator does: This pretty, bullet-shaped pendant is made of stainless steel, finished in twenty-four-karat gold, and completely waterproof (so it’s easy to clean). And it looks great layered with other necklaces.

  17. THE TEASE

    You flake on plans, but you’re always invited anyway because you have a PhD in flirting. You haven’t finished a book since your freshman year of college. No one can tell.

    What your vibrator does: The French Lover’s very thin, soft silicone tip is designed to stimulate not just the clitoris but any erogenous zone—the flexible end lightly vibrates and can be flicked around. It’s great for teasing buildup and for those who are sensitive to strong pressure.

  18. THE SENSITIVE SOUL

    Likes: puff-sleeve blouses, the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, and Phoebe Bridgers. You will never understand the person who recommended that you read A Little Life, although you read all 720 pages in three days. You love the rain, but you live somewhere where it rarely rains.

    What your vibrator does: It’s just like a G-spot vibrator but with ridges that provide unique internal sensations when you move the toy in and out of the (sensitive) vaginal entrance.

    Spontaneous but capable of sustained periods of focus. If there’s a cocktail on the menu that needs to be lit on fire, you order that. You’ll do anything once.

    What your vibrator does: Made to stimulate sensitive spots all over the body, the We-Vibe Touch X is a versatile vibrator that fits nicely in your—or your partner’s—hand. You can press the entire shallow cup on your vulva for broader sensation or use the ridge for targeted stimulation of the clitoris or nipples.

  20. THE SLOW WALKER

    In the winter, you make a lot of stews. You’re a patient person who enjoys forest bathing and sand between your toes. You live in the after of a Nancy Meyers movie. You don’t know what Slack is.

    What your vibrator does: One thing we love about all Lora DiCarlo’s toys is the range of speeds—they’re fantastic if you like a slow buildup to something very intense. Filare is no different, and it’s a clitoral stimulator with a twist. Instead of a vibrating motor, Filare has two balls that sit and move underneath its soft silicone surface. Turn the device on and those balls rotate around a center point. On sensitive spots—clitoris, nipples, what have you—it feels like a partner’s finger or tongue. There are ten different speeds to choose from, as well as three rotation modes: one clockwise, one counterclockwise, and one that alternates direction and varies the depth of sensation.

  21. THE INNOVATOR

    Restaurant openings, movies that haven’t seen national distribution, books still on preorder for the masses—you’re the first of your friends to know about the best of anything. You have mysteriously had an Android phone since 2015.

    What your vibrator does: Made to mimic touch, Onda makes a come-hither motion like a finger against the vaginal wall. See that subtle bump along its length? When you turn Onda on, that bump lifts up and moves back and forth under the soft silicone surface. You can pick from four positions—long and short strokes included—and ten stroking speeds. And it vibrates at ten speeds that are great combined with the stroking or on their own.

    Round shapes soothe you. Your friends come to you for advice about natural wine and tablescapes. You probably know when ranunculus are in season.

    What your vibrator does: Sila has an extra-wide mouth that cups over the whole head of the clitoris, using sonic waves that generate pulsation and suction. It comes in a soft lilac, which is fitting—the stimulation is gentle (yet effective).

    You’re a straight-up baller. We don’t know you, but we want to.

    What your toy does: This twenty-four-karat-gold dildo is sculpted with a rounded end for deep penetration and a flattened end for clitoral stimulation. Of course it’s heavy—but that added weight lends itself to a deeper G-spot massage.
