Let’s consider for a moment the humble wand vibrator. The most famous example of this genre of sex toy is the Hitachi Magic Wand, which was introduced as a “personal massager” way back in 1968.
It was — and is — a highly effective device for easing shoulder knots, it’s true. It also was and is very good at bringing people with clitorises to orgasm. It’s the little black dress, if you will, of many a sex toy collection: a reliable classic that’s right for pretty much any (masturbatory) occasion. And when a rechargeable version was introduced in 2014, Magic Wand devotees rejoiced that they no longer had to be tethered to the wall during solo sex sessions.
With their large motors, wands tend to vibrate at lower frequencies than many other toys, producing “rumbly” (or resonant) vibes as opposed to “buzzy” ones. (Buzzy vibrations are higher-frequency, and they can feel less satisfying and even numbing after a while. Not so sexy.) The Magic Wand may be the OG, but it’s far from the only wand out there. If you’ve tried and loved it, you may be ready for your next wand — something even more intense or with more settings, perhaps, or maybe a smaller toy that you can even fit in your purse.
Never tried a wand? If you’re looking for powerful external stimulation and aren’t so worked up about whether or not you have something inside of you, this may be the toy for you. If you’re looking to pair clit stimulation with the insertion of another toy or a penis, a wand may also be the toy for you. Ahead, fifteen of the best wand vibrators on the market right now, all conveniently shoppable from the privacy of your bedroom. There are wand vibrators that look like unicorns, there are wand vibrators that warm up, and even wand vibrators that say they’re more powerful than the Hitachi. Yes, you read that right. And once you find one you like, you’re about to spend a lot more time there.
