Vibrator Reviews

Should vibrator reviews ever guide you in your choice of which vibrator to buy? After all, what could be more subjective than choosing a vibrator? I’m very picky about vibrators, but also believe that the only bad vibrator is a dangerous vibrator. Even the most poorly made and ill conceived vibrator can give you pleasure. These vibrator reviews are less about telling you what toy you should buy and more about offering a framework for you to do your own vibrator reviews. Of course after over 20 years of reviewing vibrators I’ve got my opinions, and they’re in there too. Reviews are listed by date not preference.

Image of the Ola Silicone Vibrator
Minna

A completely innovative vibrator from a new Bay area sex toy designer.  What makes the Ola unique is the way you use it.  One end of Ola has a soft pad that is pressure sensitive.  When you squeeze the area, Ola starts to buzz.  Squeeze harder and Ola gets stronger, reduce the intensity of your grip and you'll reduce the intensity of vibration.  And Ola comes with the most intuitive programming interface available, which easily allows you to tell Ola what you want and have it played back.

Trojan Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager
Babeland

Following in the footsteps of other condom manufacturers, Trojan entered the vibrator market with wearable and disposable vibrators (the kind that can be worn on the finger, around the base of a penis or dildo).  Tri-Phoria represents it's first significant foray into making serious vibrators.  For a first attempt it's not bad.  Simple and discreet design, a powerful motor, and the three interchangeable attachments offer three distinct sensations.  But for the price, Trojan has a lot of design and customer service catching up to do if they want to give people a reason to buy Trojan instead of the dozen or so other companies offering better designed, more responsive product lines.

Zini Ran

Babeland

This high end rechargeable vibrator is looking to give manufacturers like LELO and Jimmyjane a run for their money.  Ran is one of the first products from Zini, a new Korean based luxury vibrator maker, and it pays homage to many of the first generation luxury sex toy makers, while adding a few extras of it's own.  Two powerful multi-speed motors make this a toy equally good for external or internal stimulation. The push button controls are intuitive, and the control pad is lit by a multi-color LED display.  It's cost (around $120) make it probably not the best for first timers, but if you know you like vibrators, you may love the Zini Ran.

Toyfriend Bubbly Vibrator
Babeland.com

Based on the premise that for some, a vibrator is like a best friend  (or maybe more like best friend with benefits), the Toyfriend line of vibrators offers products that are as powerful, functional, and thoughtfully designed as they are cute and adorable.  Bubbly is a versatile, battery powered, silicone vibrator, suitable for both external and internal use, good for all body parts, sizes, and shapes, and well priced, for the quality.  It's three graduated spheres and five function motor will inspire as much frivolity as it's bright magenta body and bubbly design.  An excellent choice for starter or mid-career vibrator lovers.

Soraya Dual Action Vibrator
LELO

In 2010 LELO introduced a new line of vibrators under the brand Insignia, which included Soraya. A design response to the Rabbit Pearl Soraya is a rechargeable, waterproof, dual action vibrator with a completely unique look and feel. The push button controls are a huge improvement over LELO's earlier control pad, and the two powerful motors and silky smooth finish to the silicone feel great. The only difficulty (one that may be unavoidable with dual action vibrators) is that the shaft is long and for some may not allow for maximum contact when using it for both vaginal penetration and clitoral stimulation.

Babeland.com

Ignore the name and unnecessary race car design, the Cobra Libre is a revolution in male sex toys. It's a powerful vibrator and an enveloping silicone sleeve and a toy that will make you touch yourself, and experience pleasure in new ways. Not since the Fleshlight has a sex toy designed for penises offered the possibility of such an open, intense, unique, and rollicking-good-time sexual experience. Highly recommended! More »

Lovely Planet

A vibrator that you'll laugh at, and with, the Sex A Peel is a neon pink silicone vibrator that is shaped like a full banana (stem included). Designed for vaginal insertion, but strong enough for external stimulation as well, the Sex A Peel Banana Vibrator is a prayer answered for foodies and food fetishists who want to occasionally mix their culinary and erotic interests more explicitly than watching or flipping through their favorite food porn. It's adorable and functional, and with a relatively good price for a silicone toy, the occasional fantasies it may inspire make it a good addition to the shelves of sex toy collectors. More »

BonBon, the newest vibrator from Candida Royalle and her group of designers at Natural Contours, features a Japanese motor, easy push button controller that cycles through three speeds (including one pulsing setting), and an ergonomic shape that makes it great for solo or partner play. It's noticeably stronger than some of the earlier Natural Contours vibes, and living up to it's name, it looks discreetly like a chocolate (in the box) and like a tiny electronic device when it's not in the box. It can also double as a hands-free vibrator that fits snugly in your underwear and perfectly hugs the pubic bone.

Rocks Off

Designed in the UK, the Rock Chick was one of the first vibrators to offer simultaneous g spot stimulation and clitoral stimulation in a high quality silicone vibrator. The design and execution is simple, featuring a single speed vibrator that is powerful and easy to remove for cleaning or to replace it (since the body is made of silicone, it will always outlast the motor). Ideal for people who prefer pressure and grind to penetration, the Rock Chick envelops the user in vibrating mass of love. More »

Sqweel Vibrator
LoveyHoney.com
Sqweel was developed from a design-your-own-sex-toy contest run by the industrious folks at LoveyHoney, one of the UK’s biggest and most creative online sex shops. The toy is meant to mimic the experience of oral sex, and how much it does or doesn’t feel like an actual tongue hardly matters since it feels so good. Sqweel offers a genuine, and deeply satisfying, alternative to vibration. It’s easy to use, easy to clean, and it’ll make you laugh in all the right ways. Highly recommended. More »

Form 2 Vibrator by Jimmyjane
Jimmyjane
Inspired by the rabbit ears from a Japanese classic, Form 2 is a unique external vibrator and further evidence that manufacturer Jimmyjane isn’t messing around. Two motors, one in each ear, operate separately and in unison and are controlled by an easy push button system that offers variable speed and vibration style. The vibratory effect is sort of erotically cacophonic, like there’s a small street festival going on in your vibrator. The Form 2 invites you to explore different ways of creating and experiencing external stimulation. Easy to clean, long lasting, body safe materials, and a smart and sexy charging unit. More »
Nomi Tang
Better Than Chocolate ups the ante on functional and well-designed clitoral vibrators. It improves on the design of similar shaped vibrators with its larger, flatter body, and with the wonderful addition of a touch pad to control both the strength and the style of vibration. Indeed the real innovation of Better Than Chocolate is the touch pad controller that creates a kind of kinesthetic onomatopoeia, where the motion the user makes to control the vibrator mimics a classic self-pleasuring movement. In this way the toy represents an important addition to the development of smart, sex tech, sex toys. More »
Fun Factory
The Laya Spot is one of those vibrators I find myself coming back to again and again when asked to recommend toys for friends. It does what it’s meant to do (provide external stimulation) consistently, durably and, like all Fun Factory toys, with a colorful sense of fun. Compact and discreet in design, Laya Spot is perfect for travelers and/or anyone who has a lack of privacy. It’s hand held design also allows it to be used for manual massage and easily integrates your own touch into the stimulation from the motor. More »
silver bullet vibrator
Babeland
There are dozens of different versions of this classic vibrator. The silver bullet is great for beginners as it is inexpensive and relatively powerful. Because the vibration comes from a small area it’s also ideal for exploring your whole body and discovering where you enjoy vibration most. The main drawbacks to the silver bullet vibe is it’s short lifespan and the hand numbing effect it can have when holding it for too long. More »

Pocket Rocket Vibrator
Jimmyjane

An iconic vibrator, the Pocket Rocket was one of the first fully waterproof Japanese vibrators to carve out a brand name for itself (with the help of Howard Stern).  A simple, single speed vibrator, powerful for its size, comes in two colors.  Discreet and good for travel, the drawbacks of the Pocket Rocket include only having one speed (may be too strong for some people) and, because of it's size, holding it for too long may numb the hand of the holder.  But it's high quality at a low price.
