For the uninitiated, it’s like “Once you’ve seen a vibrator, you’ve already seen them all.” For those who know their vibes however, there are different types of vibrators and that choosing the right one can spell the difference between so-so masturbation and mind-blowing self-pleasuring. You can’t tell the difference just by looking at them. This guide will give you an idea on the types and features of various vibrator types you can buy from an adult sex toy store.
Types of vibrators
When it comes to purpose, there are three main types: the vaginal vibrator, the g-spot vibrator and the clitoris vibrator. Again, the difference should be self-explanatory. Each one targets a specific area for optimum pleasuring. But now there are multi-purpose vibrators that can do the work of two vibrator types. Vibrators that penetrate are also equipped with extra strong vibrations and attachments that can reach out to the clit. A great example of this is the very popular rabbit vibrators, which stimulate the inside of the vagina and the clit at the same time.
There can sometimes be vibrating dildos, basically realistic looking dildos that vibrate but I haven’t found a great one yet. I have found some pretty great squirting dildos though.
When it comes to power sources, there are two main types: the electrical/plug in vibrators and the battery-powered vibrators. The difference between them should be self-explanatory. The benefits vary; plug in ones give you uninterrupted power (unless there is electricity outage) while the battery-operated ones give you mobility and convenience. I personally prefer battery operated because I don’t like getting cords in the way.
Shapes of vibrators
When it comes to shape, there are three common types: the phallic, the bullet, and the egg. Phallic vibes are good for those who prefer lots of penetration, while the bullet and egg is perfect for spot stimulation of the clitoris, although these can be inserted inside the pussy also. The newest models of bullet and egg vibrators are equipped with remote controls (with or without wires) for more comfort and flexibility for the user. Bullets or eggs that are equipped with extra strong vibrations can also qualify as mini massagers and can be used on other parts of the body.
Another type of multi-purpose vibrators that are worth mentioning includes those that double as body massager, such as the Hitachi Magic Wand. The extra strong vibrations and the wand make it perfect for relaxing massages before and after masturbation. Other sub-categories of vibrators include the waterproof vibrators. These babies can be used in the shower and bath, and some models can even be used in the pool as well.

10) Twirling Cuddle
This rabbit vibrator is designed to lightly suck on your clitoris giving you double satisfaction as you insert
9) California Exotics Butterfly Kiss
Touted as the vibrator created by women. I can be used for both insertion and clitoral stimulation. It has nine setting which range from gentle to intense.
8) Womolia Emotional Bliss
This little wonder has a small fluttering butterfly for g-spot arousal and antennae for tickling the clitoris. Has 9 speed settings.

6) Doc Johnson’s The Original Pocket Rocket
One of the most discreet, yet powerful vibrators around. It has 4 interchangeable soft silicone tips that delivers so much pleasure.
5) LELO Mona 2
Every review site on the internet will tell you that the Mona 2 is one of the most spectacular toys out there; and they’re absolutely right. The Mona 2 is indeed spectacular in everything from it’s design to its functionality.
The first thing to notice would be the power in this bad boy. The motor is so powerful that at full speeds, it will feel like your vagina is about to explode. This toy is not one for the faint of heart. But, this is actually good news, once you’re fed up of those boring vibrators, you have this beast to look forward too.
The toy is structurally well-built, but it might lose the edges if you’re using a silicone-based material. We recommend using a water-based lube since it works really well with most silicone toys. There’s a decent battery life on this thing as well. You can easily play for 2 hours before the toy is in need of another charge.
- Quite a few different intensities
- Several different modes and functions to play around with.
- Decent battery life
- Fancy storage pouch included
- The only con would be that it also stimulates the urinary tract. So, during play, you might instantly feel the need to urinate. Definitely a mood killer when you’re close to climax.

4) We-Vibe II
Lelo is known for producing vibrators that seamlessly blend fashion and femininity with amazing engineering. This sculpted wonder offers a dramatic shape for your ultimate pleasure.
3) Lelo Gigi G-spot Vibrator
The LELO Gigi is a G-Spot vibrator, and to be fairly honest, the only thing we can say about it is that it knows how to do it’s job amazingly well. The design of this toy is so impeccable that it knows exactly how to hit the right spots and give you the most amazing orgasm of your life.
The soft, velvety material of this toy is another reason why it’s so popular. The surface of the toy is nothing short of absolute royalty, and you can see that as soon as you lay eyes on this thing.
The toy is amazingly discreet. The length is about 9.5 cm and is as quiet as a toy can get. It’s practically dead silent, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t pack a punch. The Gigi has an absolute beast of a motor with several different vibrating mode that will rock you to your core.
- The length of this toy is spot on. It’s not too deep for beginners, or too ‘shallow’ for the pros.
- Handy controls make it easy to change the setting during play.
- An INSANE battery. A full charge will last you about 15 hours of kinky play.
- The flawless design hits the right spots and makes every woman think that the toy was made just for them.
- The toy is pretty far from being waterproof, even though it’s wireless.
This has a twist-bottom control and is one of the most popular options available out there. And is perfectly shaped to reach that extreme sex spot. Check out my review of the Lelo Gigi 2.
2) Fifty Shades of Grey: Greedy Girl
This is another toy from the Fifty Shades series; and well, it’s one of the finest things ever made. Basically, this is a rabbit vibrator that’s going to make you scream as loud as you possibly can. It’s that simple.
If you want the specifics, listen to this; Greedy Girl has 36 different possible vibration mode combination. Yup, you read that right, 36! There are two powerful motors in this little speeds and the amount of kinky stuff you could do with this toy is just absolutely endless.
Just the rabbit vibrator has 3 speeds and 9 patterns and one thing’s for sure, the shaft definitely knows how to destroy your G-Spot. Just slap on some lube and watch as this wonderous toy gives you the orgasm of a lifetime.
The toy is also amazingly quiet. You’d think that something with two motors wouldn’t be too quiet, well, you’re dead wrong. This thing is silent enough to be used in a library and no one would guess that there’s something going on downstairs. If you’re the type of girl that likes to her toys to the bath tub, Greedy Girl’s got your back. This little rabbit is entirely waterproof!
- You’ll definitely be surprised at how powerful the motors are.
- The size and the shape is everything women could ever hope for.
- Long, LONG list of vibration patterns and combination.
- Luxurious satin bag included in the box
- The battery just runs barely an hour; which does leave a bit to be desired, but this toy is running two motors, what else could you expect.
- The shaft does get hot with extended use.
1) Hitachi Magic Wand Massager Winner!
This has been a bestseller for many adult stores for years due to its non-phallic super effective shape. It offers high and low vibration modes.
After the original, old school Hitachi Magic Wand Massager, it was pretty obvious that Hitachi would realize that they needed to amp it up a bit and release something that’s more up-to-date with the current world of sex toys. So, Hitachi was good enough to bless us with a wireless version of the Magic Wand and really amplify everything good with the OG version of the toy.
So, first let’s talk about some features the Wand shares with its predecessor. The toy is almost a foot long. The vibrating head is almost 2.5 inches across and 7 inches around. The vibrator weighs over 2 pounds, making it one of the most powerful vibrators out there. Apart from the vibrating head, the whole toy is made of plastic with the exception of a small piece of metal. It’s cordless, but that doesn’t mean that it’s completely waterproof. This vibrator is unlike anything else available in the market, and sometimes, that has it’s own disadvantages. The uncanny design means that it’ll be quite some times before Hitachi can come out with a waterproof version.
Understanding the need of the public, Hitachi considered it a good idea to optimize the toy for the purposes it’s being used for; orgasms. So, they made it body-friendly by changing the material of the head to pure silicone. Other than that, they added button to increase or decrease RPM as well as change the modes of vibration. Hitachi might not have made the original Wand for sexual pleasure, but they definitely had pleasure in mind while making this fine piece of machinery.
