There are so many affordable vibrators women can choose from online, how do you know if you are selecting the best one? To save you from ending up with wrong one, we’ve compiled this list of the nine best vibrators for women.
It is based on popularity, independent online reviews (from ladies who review sex toys for a living), design, quality and usefulness.
If you want to know what the best vibrator for women is in 2018 read on.
And if you are reading this in Australia or the UK, then good news. You can purchase directly from our site and have it delivered free, very discreetly, to your door. Buying your vibrator online will save you about half the price from buying it in a physical shop.
First let’s cover some basics.
How does a vibrator work?
Vibrators house a motor, it might just be one, sometimes two (as in a Rabbit Vibrator – also known as dual stimulation), and sometimes even three. The motors in vibrators can create different sensations like buzzy and rumbly, and they are weighted to enhance these sensations.
If your vibrator has more than one speed setting, then it probably has a small PCB in it to easily control the multiple functions. Then the PCB and motor are housed in hard plastic or metal which is then covered in a silicone skin or other material like ABS plastic.
What’s the best way to use a vibrator?
Just about all vibrators work best with a little water based lubricant on them first.
From there it is really dependant on the vibrator. The best way to use a vibrator for the first time is to use it on your own without feeling rushed so you can find out how it can get the most out of your body. So set aside some private play time and settle in for serious pleasure.

We-Vibe Tango II
This bullet vibrator has been around for a number of years, and this is the second edition of We-Vibe’s other best seller, the first being their couples vibrator. There isn’t a female sex toy blogger around that doesn’t rate this as one of the best vibrators they own.
The We Vibe Tango mini vibrator is rechargeable, made from body safe ABS thermoplastic, waterproof and comes with a USB charging cable and a silk storage bag.
It is very easy to use with one button to control everything. You can cycle through four speeds and then try three different patterns, but you’ll probably just keep it on the speed setting, making it go faster when you are about to climax.
The most important question – will it deliver an orgasm? Hell yes! One reviewer got 10 orgasms in one hour. This toy tops the list of best vibrators for women due to its design, reviews, build quality, very low return rate, usability (on your own or during intercourse), eco-factor and affordable price tag.
As an added bonus, We-Vibe are a carbon-neutral company so the manufacturing of this product has been offset and the packaging is recyclable.
This vibrator has a one year warranty and if you purchase with Mimi De Luxe we provide free returns should something go wrong in the warranty period.
|Strong vibrations||Battery doesn’t always last 2 hours|
|Easy to use & clean|
Nalone Rock is more commonly known as a magic wand style massager. Usually on a “Best Vibrator List” you would expect to find a Hitachi Magic Wand. But things have moved on a bit since then, and not everyone is into the kind of heavy power that the Hitachi delivers.
So, the Rock is on this list as it is discrete, affordable, entirely body safe (made from silicone), far more appealing to the eye than the Hitachi Wand and it is rechargeable and waterproof (something that the Hitachi is not).
The Rock isn’t intimidating, it is a modest size, and the best part is it actually works! You can use it all over your body, so if you are afraid of someone finding your vibrator, you can always say “It’s just a massager!”.
The Rock has seven vibration modes and ships with a USB cable for charging. It also has a one year warranty.
|Strong vibrations||Near buzzy vibrations might not be for everyone|
|Seamless silicone – easy to clean|
Tenga Iroha+ Kushi
You can see Tenga Kushi takes its shape from a clam shell, it is distinctly Japanese in its design. The evenly spaced ribs evoke images of zen gardens, and the soft texture of Kushi will make you immediately fall in love with it.
All of the vibrators in the Iroha line are squishy. Imagine you are holding a perfectly ripe peach and you squeeze it, that is kind of what these vibrators feel like. There is something about squishy vibrators that make them more feminine – I don’t know why, perhaps its because they are more comforting, but squishy is definitely a big plus when it comes to womens vibrators.
Don’t think this isn’t powerful just because it is cute and squishy. Iroha+ are the second generation and have more powerful motors than the previous Iroha vibrators (of which Kim Kardashian is a fan). It’s also impressively quiet and is dead easy to charge as you just place it back in its display case.
Kushi is a clitoral vibrator that you use externally and the texture means you can play with having the ribs against your clitoris or the smooth side against it. You might want to start with one and move onto the other.
It is rechargeable, waterproof, has five vibration strengths and two patterns and a one year warranty.
|Soft and squishy||Rumbly vibrations might not be strong enough for some|
|All over Silicone – easy to clean|
Matryoshka by Rianne S
This clitoral vibrator has been around for a few years, but is only recently getting the attention it deserves. I think Rianne S will become very popular in 2018 as she hits all the right buttons for women seeking toys that are feminine and don’t look like conventional sex toys.
Before we go into the vibrations on this toy, we have to let you know, the packaging is sensational. Someone once said you eat with your eyes, and your eyes will be feasting on the luxury packaging on any Rianne S sex toy. If design and aesthetics are important to you, this is the brand for you (actually most of our brands are, but I digress!).
So, this vibrator is easy to hold, if you happen to have RSI, this is the toy for you. You can place the small bulb against your clitoris and move the body of Matryoshka all around your vagina to see what feels good. You can even insert the smaller bulb into your vagina or backdoor as well, although it doesn’t go in very deep, but does provide a lovely full feeling.
This vibrator sits on its own recharging stand that just makes it look very important and stylish. Not at all like a regular sex toy. It is covered in a smooth body safe silicone and is waterproof and you’ll be able to choose from five intensities and five patterns (you can vary the intensity of each of these patterns) from one motor.
Matryoshka produces a mildly rumbly vibration. It is not quite pin-point, but great for moving around your clitoris and will certainly entice you to orgasm.
|Beautiful, art like||Rumbly vibrations might not be strong enough for some|
|Internal & external use|
|Stylish storage case & charging case|
Strictly speaking, the Satisfyer isn’t really a vibrator. It is part of a new breed of women’s pleasure toys called stimulators. It doesn’t vibrate, it uses pressure waves to bring the blood to your clitoris which magically delivers an orgasm. It is a vibrator that can only be used externally.
We had to include it on the list of the best vibrators, because this toy is a guaranteed orgasm inducing piece of equipment. If you’ve heard of the Womanizer you know what we are talking about. It uses the same technology, but is half the price.
The Satisfyer Pro is waterproof, has 11 speeds to choose from and is rechargeable. It also comes with a one year warranty.
Trust us, you won’t be disappointed. The only bad point about the Satisfyer is that you can’t use it with a partner. You kind of just have to lie there and not move around too much, so it is definitely one to use on your own. But, Satisfyer are bringing out a couples vibe (like We-Vibe) that will solve this problem. Although not sure if that will make great sex as you’ll be done after about 30 seconds!
|Orgasm inducing||Not suitable for couples play|
|Easy to use|
Rocks Off Bamboo
Bamboo by Rocks Off is another bullet vibe, like Tango, with pin point precision to hit that helps you find just the right spot on your clitoris to get you off.
It is a luxury vibrator for a fraction of the cost. The rose gold edition of Bamboo makes it looks not like a vibrator at all, but more like a Yves Saint Laurent lipstick.
Rocks Off are famous for their bullet vibrators, with their RO-80mm being an international best seller. It’s good, but a bit too buzzy for my liking. The Bamboo spreads the vibrations out more over a slightly bigger body, so it’s not as buzzy as the RO-80mm, it’s in the middle of buzzy and rumbly.
It’s not made of metal, like the Crave Bullet, but you still get body safe materials with ABS plastic. It is the most affordable vibrator on this list, but that means that it is battery operated. However that is the only trade off you have to make for the price, as it is waterproof, has a one year guarantee and three speeds and seven functions to choose from.
Bamboo is a great vibrator to use externally on your own, or with your partner. You can explore your partners body using it around their penis and balls.
|Super Affordable||Not rechargeable|
|Sleek, luxury design|
Fin by Dame
Fin is a play-thing vibrator. It is a foreplay vibrator, that is a useful arousal tool. It’s not one I would recommend for a guaranteed orgasm, however it is definetely one I would recommend for any woman who wants to orgasm during sex.
Fin is made by the remarkable young women at Dame Products. Two college graduates who want to make sex better for women, you may have heard of their other product, Eva, which was the most highly funded sex toy in the history of crowdfunding.
Fin is finger vibrator that straps to your fingers, you can use it against your breasts or clitoris to get warmed up, then during intercourse, move it around your clitoris until you find the right spot, or let your partner wear it and put them in control.
It is simple to use with just three speeds. It is waterproof, rechargeable, made from body safe silicone in eye catching colours and of course has a one year warranty (and we provide free postage for returns in the unlikely event something goes wrong).
|Easy to use||Can be noisy when pressed against the skin|
|Will bring you closer to shared orgasm|
|Versatile – use everywhere|
This is another magic wand style all over body massager, but it is great shape that doesn’t conform to the usual style of magic wand vibrators. The Swan Wand is an elegant massager that can be used externally or internally.
This wand is powerful. It provides deep, rumbly vibrations and is double ended which allows you to take your pick as to which end is going to provide you with pleasure today. The large bulbous end or the more delicate end that is perfect for stimulating your G-spot.
Being double ended makes this wand very versatile, you can use it all over your body. There are two motors, one in each end that are controlled independently. So you don’t have to have both motors running at the same time, again pick and choose how you like it.
In terms of popularity, the Swan Wand is a bit like the Satisfyer and We-Vibe Tango in that there isn’t a sex toy reviewer out there who doesn’t love it.
The Swan Wand is rechargeable, waterproof, has a one year guarantee and you can store it in the supplied satin bag when you aren’t using it.
|All over Silicone||Buttons in the middle may be pressed inadvertently|
Je Joue Mimi
Je Joue Mimi is nearly a cult classic. When Good Housekeeping started its vibrator reviews a few years ago, Mimi took the golden crown and it has stayed there ever since.
It is slightly squishy, like Iroha, and very soft. This, combined with its silky smooth silicone and curves make it a non-intimidating vibrator, so it is very popular with first time users.
Mimi is a clitoral vibrator that you use externally, by placing on or around the clitoris. It has five vibration patterns and five speeds, all accessed with is rechargeable, waterproof and has a one year warranty. Mimi provides deep and rumbly vibrations.
You can use Mimi on your own or with your partner. And it makes a luxurious gift for a romantic getaway.
|Squishy||Doesn’t provide pin-point stimulation|
|Great for first time users|
|Use with a partner|
