Battery-Operated Boyfriend, Jesse Pinkman, Orgasmatron, Buzz Nightgear or plain old Vibe—no matter the term of choice, the humble vibrator is arguably the best known of all sex toys on the market. Buzzing onto the scene (officially) around the end of the 19th Century, the vibrator started out as a medical device used to treat, among other ailments, the fabled “female hysteria.” Doctors would administer electromechanical stimulation to bring on “hysterical paroxysm,” or what we now know as an orgasm.
Fast forward a few decades and a sexual revolution later to the good ole Magic Wand, a still best-selling electric massage wand originally designed as a body massager. Word of mouth spread that the screamingly powerful wand doubled as a pleasure tool, and to this day, it’s one of the top toy recommendations for people who have trouble climaxing. Vibrator design has come a very long way since, and it’s continually evolving as we continue to learn about pleasure needs, wants and ways.
Some vibrators are super versatile, like the traditional vibrator of the smooth tapered variety, the classic bullet vibrator or the famous wand. Others are geared to more specific pleasure purposes, like the G-spot vibe and clitoral stimulator, and some, like the Rabbit vibrator, offer dual or even triple stimulation. Recently, a new trend of touchless pressure wave/pleasure air technology has taken the toy word by steamy storm with the suction vibrator.
At PinkCherry, most of our vibes are backed by honest reviews and ratings, plus, they’re organized by bestseller (unless you change the option). Take some time to browse, or head straight to the bestsellers. Just remember that a vibrator is not one-size-fits-(or pleases)-all—everybody is different, amazing and deserving of pleasure.
