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, they’re widely renowned as being one of the best vibrator varieties for helping people with clits achieve mind-blowing orgasms.
While your sonic wave clitoral vibrator is epic and the bullet vibrator you invested in TIME ago discrete and super portable (hello, steamy weekend break), 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. The vibes they produce are deeper and more “rumbly” – as opposed to those higher buzzy vibes you might expect from a bullet vibrator that can be too intense – or leave you feeling a bit numb. Lower frequency vibrations 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 rabbit vibrators or dildos. They focus less on the G-spot (pick up a dedicated G-spot vibrator for that) and more on the clitoris, and the fact they have a large head means they can stimulate a larger surface area. Since the clit is actually larger than many people realise, this larger tip can result in more powerful orgasms.
Lastly? Wand vibrators are easier to hold and maneuver with thanks to their steady handles. 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…

How to use a wand vibrator
As previously mentioned, the joy of the humble wand vibrator is in its versatility. First up, you can use it 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 with your massage gun does. That’s what the iconic Original Magic Wand 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 rechargeable variety, there are a tonne of wand vibrators on the market that’ll help you achieve an orgasm in minutes. But there are 11 which really stand out as the “best”. There’s Kandid’s Magic Wand Massager which has a silky-smooth silicone head, eight massage modes and three intensity levels, or LELO’s Smart Wand Large 2. This is the more recent iteration of their Smart Wand Medium (also great and currently reduced to £83), 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.
