Wand vibrators – or magic wand vibrators, as they’re often otherwise referred to – are the OGs of the sex toys world. With over 50 years of pleasure-inducing experience, wand vibes are widely renowned as being one of the best vibrator varieties for clitoral stimulation.
While your sonic wave clitoral vibrator is epic and that rabbit vibrator you invested in TIME ago ideal for blended orgasms, a wand vibrator trumps all in terms of versatility. And it’ll help you level-up your self-care routine in an instant.
How are wand vibrators different to other kinds of vibrator?
First up: wand vibrators – or wand massagers – have larger motors than most other vibes do, which means they vibrate at lower frequencies. They produce rumbly, deep vibrations – as opposed to those high-pitched buzzy pulsations you might expect from a bullet vibrator which can leave you feeling numb. Rumbly vibrations of lower frequency are slightly paired-back but still super intense and high-quality, taking you from zero to orgasm in no time at all.
Secondly, wand vibrators are designed for external use only, unlike g-spot vibrations, dildos or designs with bunny ears. They focus less on G-spot stimulation and more on the clitoris, and the fact they have a large head means they can stimulate a larger surface area. Think: your entire vulva. Since the clit is actually larger than many people realise, this larger tip can result in more powerful orgasms.
Lastly? Wand toys are easier to hold and manoeuvre with thanks to their steady handles and ergonomic design. This gives you more control over the sex toy and means you can use them to stimulate other parts of your – or your partner’s – body. Think nipples, labia, testicles… Yep: they’re a great sex toy for men, too.
How to use a wand vibrator
As previously alluded to, the joy of the humble wand vibrator is in its versatility. Use the magic wand for masturbation, to stimulate your clit or labia. You could even put the wand on your pillow if you don’t own a rideable toy.
Wand vibrators can also be used during partnered sex: pair your wand vibrator with the insertion of a penis for heightened penetration, or use it to level-up oral or anal sex. And yes – the rumours are true. Wand vibrators can also be used to alleviate sore muscles – as your massage gun does. Think of it as your own personal massager. That’s what the iconic Original Magic Wand by Vibratex was originally meant for, and massage is a very underrated form of foreplay.
What are the best wand vibrators to buy?
Coming in either the mains powered or USB rechargeable variety, there are a tonne of wand vibrators on the market that’ll help you achieve an orgasm in minutes. But there are 13 which really stand out as the “best”.
Look for something made from body-safe silicone, with varying intensity settings and vibration modes. Consider a mini wand if you want to pack it away in your weekend bag, and a waterproof wand if you’re keen to play in the bath or shower.
There’s Kandid’s Magic Wand Massager which has a soft silicone head, eight massage modes and three intensity levels, or LELO Smart Wand 2 – the more recent iteration of their Smart Wand Medium which comes with a one year warranty. Acting as the ultimate foreplay tool for yourself or your partner, it boasts ten different massage patterns, a longer-lasting charge than ever before and a steadier handle than previous models for total control. Elsewhere, you can pick up the iconic Hitachi Magic Wand or the Le Wand body massager (complete with an array of built-in vibration speeds) on Amazon.
