Manual masturbation is great, but we can all use an extra hand (or sex toy) sometimes. According to a survey about sex toy ownership in the U.S., nearly 80% of women over the age of 18 own a sex toy. Vibrators are by far the most common toys to own (78%), followed by dildos (60%) and anal toys (16%). Of course, these toys are awesome for anyone with a vagina and vulva – not just women!
This guide will go over these categories of sex toys for vulva owners, and then some! Whether you’re looking for the best vibrator, G-spot stimulation, or even a sex toy that mimics oral sex – we’ve got it all. Help us close the orgasm gap, one pleasure maker at a time.
*Please note that we use the phrase “sex toys for women” as often indicated by pop culture. However, these products are designed for everyone with a vulva or vagina (we’ve even seen people with penises get creative with the toys), regardless of their identity.
Power to the clit! The overwhelming majority of women (99%!) report orgasming from clitoral stimulation during masturbation, either alone or coupled with penetration. Did you know that the visible part of the clitoris shows only the tip of the entire sexual organ? That’s why these toys are designed to stimulate much more of the clitoris compared to standard clitoral vibrators.
Chances are, if you’ve done your research on suction toys, you’ve probably heard about the SONA line of clitoral stimulators. It’s the most popular item by a landslide. Unlike other toys that stimulate the surface of the clitoris, SONA sends sonic waves deep into the clitoris to stimulate 75% more of it. If you read the reviews on it, many people also say it made them squirt for the first time – that’s some intense orgasms! You can check out the differences between the first and second generation here, and check out what Cruise Control technology is here.
Defining Features: Cruise Control technology saves overall power to be unleashed when you’re pressing the toy hardest against your body for maximum pleasure.
Customer Reviews: “It’s unlike anything else I’ve seen on the market and really uncovers new sensations. It was fun learning about a part of my body I thought I’d explored thoroughly for decades. It was like the awesomest cunnilingus + vibrating. I had multiple deeply satisfying orgasms within moments of using it, and recommend it to every person with a clitoris! I wish there was a version for men (save me on the lockjaw, lol).”
SILA is dedicated to the warm-up and steady pace of pleasure. When there’s no rush to reach orgasm, why not edge yourself to an intense and long-lasting climax? SILA does this by offering a wide range of vibration intensities, from very soft pulsing to incredible power. It also has a larger mouth to encompass not only the entire clitoris but also the surrounding erogenous zones like the labia and other areas of the vulva. If you’re more of the type to light some candles, slip into something sexy, and enjoy a night in than hit the town, this clitoral vibrator was made with you in mind.
Defining Features: A wide array of intensities for buildable pleasure and edging, all while being whisper-quiet for extra stealthiness.
Customer Review: “SILA is the home companion I’ve been hoping to find. Cutting to the chase, SILA lives up to any and all hype: it’s powerful but ever so adjustable, quiet and discreet, easy to handle, and best of all so, so, effective. From gentle stimulation to mind-blowing orgasms, Sila has taken me wherever I’m in the mood to go. Bravo, Sila!”
If you’re looking for a multi-purpose massage wand that nobody would ever suspect was designed for sexual purposes, the SMART WAND is the queen of all massagers. Not only does this toy vibrate deep for ultimate relaxation, but it’s also incredibly powerful for those who know they can handle it. It’s cordless so you don’t have to worry about the hassle of having a plug nearby, plus the USB rechargeable battery gives you 2 hours of exploration with this magic wand. It comes in two sizes, SMART WAND Medium and SMART WAND Large. The second generation was also recently launched with a few added features including 10 different vibration settings.
Defining Features: A body massager that gives you powerful and reliable vibrations that double for pleasure and pain relief.
Customer Reviews: “Purchased this (in black) as a muscle massager. The vibrations are powerful and it’s discreet and fits very nicely in my purse for when you’re on the go and need a simple neck massage while sitting in traffic or in the office. As a pleasure object, well…it doesn’t disappoint. The vibrations are those that we all know and love, the feel is smooth as silk, and for me, I found that it fits perfectly in between the labia if you should so choose to rub up against it cowgirl style, in the shower (oooof!) alone or with company, it will get you there!”
Let’s give a hand for one of the best vibrators for beginners and seasoned pros alike. IPO 2 is a tiny vibrator that is particularly convenient for people who travel or are looking for a discreet sex toy with plenty of power. This pocket vibe has super soft silicone and fits comfortably on your finger – or someone else’s. It’s so small that you can even keep it inside your underwear and wear it in public or use it while grinding against a pillow.
Defining Features: When it comes to bullet vibrators, the IPO 2 is about as discreet as they come.
Customer Reviews: “Lovely little something for when you’re with a partner or just want to amp up your night alone.”
Love the eroticism of receiving oral sex? Then you’ll love ORA 3. It’s a clitoral stimulator with a rotating nub that mimics the human tongue, but without any strings attached. Who says you need to have a partner to get your fill of being eaten out? Not with ORA 3. This ring-shaped device contains a handle that makes it easy to control and press against yourself for direct clitoral stimulation. Make sure to add lots of lube to get this bit of silky smooth silicone feeling just like a mouth.
Defining Features: Its revolutionary rotating nod mimics the human tongue, especially when in random mode.
Customer Reviews: “I bought this a couple of months ago. I love it! Looking at the item I did not see how it could possibly emulate oral sex. But it sure does. I love getting oral, but this is the safest way ever. Very happy I bought the Ora 3.”
We consider the SORAYA Wave as a perfect example of a sex toy that satisfies both external and internal stimulation. Its diversity is just one of the reasons it’s been a top 3 seller month after month. Not only does this rabbit vibrator contain a smaller, flexible arm and a large shaft to explore the multiple vibration patterns, but it also contains wave technology. What does this mean? The two arms can also move towards each other in a “come hither” pinching motion to create tantalizing G-spot stimulation. Take a dive into the SORAYA WAVE for maximum pleasure.
Defining Features: This dual vibrator gives you G-spot and clitoral stimulation for a wonderfully intense orgasm.
Customer Reviews: “I have this gem, may I say if you don’t know what your G spot is or just don’t seem to be able to get that toe-curling vaginal orgasm that you read about, get this, invest in your own pleasure. You will not be sorry. I still have not been able to last through more than 2 settings, I love this thing.”
Another popular form of stimulation for vaginas and vulvas is vaginal or internal stimulation. However, many women prefer the option of a blended orgasm, so all of our internal toys also contain vibration that can be used externally on the clitoris or erogenous zones for dual stimulation. If you prefer stimulation that mimics a phallic movement or know that your sweet spots are internal, check out the following toys.
Another great rabbit vibrator is the INA 2, which has both a thicker shaft and a larger arm for internal and external stimulation. Its shape is quite unique to a rabbit vibrator because the shaft is curved to hit the inner wall of the vagina. It’s also 100% waterproof so you can have fun in the bath or shower. To check out more comparisons between INA 2 and SORAYA 2, click here.
Defining Features: Shaped like a shaft with a little thumb on the side, this toy guarantees double joy – clitoral and G-spot stimulation.
Customer Reviews: “I purchased this to add some variety into the bedroom and also to introduce my wife to a g-spot orgasm. She likes it a lot and likes it when I use it on her. It’s very good quality, well made and works well. The power setting range is good…very low to very intense. She will have a g-spot orgasm after it’s inside her for a few minutes, then want me to get inside her for another orgasm. It’s definitely enhanced our intimate time. No complaints here!”
A tip crafted to perfection, GIGI 2 is one of the best female vibrators for internal stimulation that hits all the sweet spots. It may appear small compared to some of our other vibrators, but it’s the perfect length for stimulating the internal erogenous zone commonly known as the G-spot. Although technically a G-spot vibrator, the versatile GIGI 2 can also be used to stimulate both clitoris and other erogenous zones like the nipples and anus. Incorporate it into some partner play and let your sweetie explore your body while you’re blindfolded!
Defining Features: This G-spot vibrator has an un-intimidating size and a flattened tip that is amazing for those who like internal and external stimulation.

One of the best vibrators for women and other folks looking for G-spot stimulation, the MONA Wave is a great option to give your insides an erotic massage.

Defining Features: A stand-out amongst G-spot vibrators, the WaveMotion technology allows the shaft to “curl” onto your sweetest zones.

I grind on top of it for clitoral stimulation. I never use any of the movement settings. I love that I can increase or decrease the strength of the vibration. It is easy to clean and charge.”

Since these toys are designed with functionality in mind, almost all of the internal stimulators can be used as an anal vibrator as well. Please just remember to wash them thoroughly or use toy cleaner before switching stimulation zones! Another very, VERY important reminder is to always use lube or personal moisturizer when exploring anal play, especially if you’re new to it. Let go of any stigmas and enjoy the art and satisfaction of a perineal sponge massage.
*Make no mistake-these anal toys aren’t just for prostates, they’re for anyone who wants to explore the backdoor. We receive tons of emails from women who get just as much joy using these toys as their male partners do. Just make sure to clean before swapping.

Customer Reviews: “An excellent gift idea to keep in the back pocket for that REALLY special someone.”
TIANI 3 is all about mutual stimulation. Of course, it can be used during solo play, but using it during partnered sex stimulates both the internal wall and clitoris of one partner while massaging the shaft of the other partner. TIANI 3 also contains SenseMotion technology, which means the intensity of the vibration patterns can be controlled by tipping the remote. Use it on a romantic night on the town as a form of foreplay to have you both begging for more when you return home.
Defining Features: The remote control lets you play with exhibitionism and can provide stimulation for both partners.
Customer Reviews: “This was a joint Valentine present. We’ve tried other products before but they didn’t really work. Often they were far too uncomfortable. The Tiani 3 is an absolute top-quality project. I suppose the most surprising thing about it is you don’t really know it’s there until you really know it’s there!”

Another great remote-controlled toy is LYLA 2. It’s a more traditionally thought of bullet vibrator that delivers big sensations with 8 vibration settings. It contains the same SenseMotion technology and is worn completely internally in the vagina to stimulate the inner walls. You can again use ait s a wearable panty vibrator for some exhibitionist foreplay, or keep it inserted during anal sex.

Versatility is key, whether that be with solo or partnered sex!
Defining Features: The LYLA 2 is perfect for foreplay or in addition to anal sex.
