We take one each.
OUR BESTSELLING VIBRATORS
The perfectly curved vibrator
Made with Dame’s most powerful motor to date, the Arc will help you figure out what feels good to you. Its deep, rumble vibrations are designed to be enjoyed both internally and externally: it’s curved to hit sensitive spots on the vaginal wall, and the squishy, onion-shaped head comes on a comb for targeted clitoral stimulation. You can cycle through five speeds and five different vibration patterns and take the time to figure out what feels best – it can take over an hour and a half on a single charge.

The classic bullet vibrator
This spherical vibrator is easy to use and designed for beginners: you just press the button on the end to start, press again to switch modes, and explore different emotions from there. For internal stimulation, hold the end of it to insert it into the vagina. It feels especially good when pressed against the front wall of the vagina, where it can bump against the internal structure of the clitoris on the other side. (If you’ve ever been taught that the clitoris is the size of a pea, that’s inaccurate. Every body is definitely different, but usually the clitoris extends about four inches from the head to the tip of each of its two inner ends.) You can enjoy that too External Vibrations: The rounded tip feels good for targeted stimulation, or you can flatten the length of the vibrator against the vulva for a wider, less intense feel. Unlike the rest of the group, this vibrator is battery operated. An AAA gives you four hours of gameplay – keep a supply ready.

The Nova 2 by We-Vibe is a rabbit-shaped vibrator with longer “ears” that ensures constant contact with your body while you move. The long head is firm and adjustable so you can get the angle just right for your internal pressure points, and the short head bends, keeping it in constant contact with your clitoris as you explore different levels of penetration. Each head has its own motor that you can control independently, with ten vibration patterns and thirteen intensity levels. The surface feels smooth and gentle on the skin, the ergonomic handle makes it easy to control from any angle and has a travel lock so it never turns on if you don’t want to.
This also comes with an associated app. What’s sexier than it sounds, when you download We-Connect and sync it with your Nova 2 over Wi-Fi, you can program any custom patterns that feel good to you. And while this vibrator was originally designed for solo play, a partner from across the room (or from around the world) can join in by operating Nova 2 remotely. Just send him an invite from the app and he can control the vibrations while you play.

The air pulsating clitoral vibrator
The Womanizer is a clitoral vibrator that feels a lot like oral sex. Here’s how it works: turn it on and place the stimulation head over the clitoris to form a seal. We recommend doing this with a water- or oil-based lubricant such as Nécessaires Sex Gel or the provincial pharmacists’ sex oil. (This “thing”: it emits pulses of air and slight vibrations that create a sucking sensation around the clitoris.) It fits well in the palm of your hand and is almost effortless to use. This is especially true when you turn on the autopilot, which toggles the vibration patterns and intensity to mimic the variation in partner oral sex. It was made using “Smart Silence” technology, which means it only turns on when in contact with your skin and turns off when you have to put it aside. But while the toy may be silent, you may not – we’ve found it to be a consistent path to an extremely satisfying orgasm.
