The 27 Best Wand Vibrators, According to Sex Experts

There are a lot of sex toys out there to choose from, all made for different kinds of pleasure. If you’re looking into the best wand vibrators, you’re probably looking for a powerful motor for clitoral stimulation.

The O.G. wand vibrator became wildly popular in the early 1970s when legendary sex educator Betty Dodson started shouting its praises—and for good reason. Keep reading to see just why we love wand vibes so much, plus a variety of expert-approved options to look into. 

What are wand vibrators?

Wands are characterized by big, tennis ball-shaped heads and intense motors, and use the pressure of their vibrations to provide external stimulation to the clitoris. They’re “all about power, pressure, and coverage,” says sexologist Jess O’Reilly, Ph.D. If you’re looking for G-spot stimulation, you’ll find that with rabbit vibrators and dildos, but some experts encourage using a wand vibrator during penetrative sex for both clitoral and G-spot love.

That translates to deep, intense vibrations that diffuse over a wide area of nerve endings. In the world of sex toys, vibrations are thought of as either buzzy or rumbly, says Elani Davidson, general manager of Smitten Kitten, a sex-toy store in Minneapolis—who adds that this can determine their vibration strength. Buzzy vibrations are high-pitched surface vibes while rumbly vibrations are lower, deeper vibes that penetrate further into tissue. Wands tend to fall on the rumbly side. So if you’re a fan of deep, powerful vibrations, wand vibes are the toys for you. 

Because of their wide head, which covers a lot of surface area, they’re also easy to use during masturbation or to share the vibrations with a partner, and can be used on erogenous zones all over the body (like the nipples, testicles, and beyond). Some people even like to get creative with their wand vibrators, using them as personal massagers for aches and pains thanks to their strong vibrations.

What should you look for in a wand vibrator?

Some wands are smaller and more discreet, while others are veritable powerhouses, with a variety of different speeds and settings. These days, most options are wireless, but there are still some wands with cords so that you never have to charge them (or replace batteries). The head of the wand vibrator should be made out of body-safe materials, like smooth silicone. You’ll also want to ensure that your vibrator is waterproof before you take it into the tub or shower. (Many wands are not, since the motors are typically made with plastic.)

Davidson fell hard for the Magic Wand (formerly known as the Hitachi Magic Wand, which is probably the most popular wand vibrator of all time), but she notes that nowadays, there are many other excellent wand vibrators available. To help you narrow down your options, here are 27 of the best wand vibrators that sex experts (and reviewers) love.
