How To Pick Your Perfect Clitoral Vibrator

Even though the majority of women who can achieve orgasm do it through clitoral stimulation, the number of ways that women get off are as varied and wonderful as women themselves. If you’re thinking of adding a clitoral vibrator to your repertoire, or if you still haven’t found one that’s quite right for you, Betty is here to help.

Take a minute to think about what kind of touch you like. Do you like strong, consistent touch on your clitoris, or barely there, teasing touch, or somewhere in between? Do you have trouble reaching orgasm? Are you looking for something to stimulate your clitoris while you’re with a partner as well as solo? Do you want penetration with your clitoral stimulation? Let’s take a look at some great options:

Gentle Beginner’s Vibe

If you’ve never tried a clitoral vibrator before and you think that you’re pretty average in terms of how easily you get aroused, you can start with an inexpensive battery powered vibe like the Luv Silicone Mini Clitoral Vibrator by VēDO. The shape is designed to fit snugly over your clitoris and it is going to be less intense than a rechargeable vibe – which is pretty much always the case with batteries vs. rechargeable. The kind of vibration you get off a less expensive battery powered toy is what professional reviewers call a “buzzy” vibration – more high pitched and more on the surface of your clitoris.

Small but Powerful with Deep Vibration

This category is won by the We-Vibe Tango Bullet Vibrator hands down. It’s rechargeable, so you’re going to get more power but it’s also a smaller bullet – only 3 ½ inches long! This vibe has a tapered tip so you can pinpoint where you need it and it has a rumbly, deep down kind of vibration that helps to resonate further into your body. It’s also small enough to use with a partner without getting in the way!

Sheer Power and Deep Vibration

There’s a reason why the Doxy Extra Powerful Massage Wand Vibrator is the favorite of sex toy reviewers. It has a deep, penetrating rumble that you can feel to your core. It is a plug in, which means you are limited by how far the cord can reach, but don’t let that dissuade you. Compatible with most wand attachment heads, this is the perfect clitoral vibe for anybody who needs a firm touch, or for anybody who is having trouble achieving orgasm.

Penetration and Clitoral Stimulation

If you want the best of both worlds, you have a couple of choices. You can get a clitoral vibe, then use a dildo and multi-task, or you can buy a dual stimulator or rabbit-styled vibrator. If you’ve never used one before, you can start with something inexpensive like My First Jack Rabbit which is battery powered. This will give you a good idea of whether you’re a rabbit kind of gal. Does the two in one work for you? Does it reach your clitoris and give you good penetration?

If you think you’re on the right track but want more power and better quality, you may want to aim for the Ina 2 Dual Action Luxury Vibrator by LELO. Rechargeable, powerful, silicone, and more ergonomically shaped, this is the bestselling dual stimulator out there. It also gives you a range of escalation, stimulation, and patterns that you just don’t get in the less expensive vibes.

Power and Suction

This option is a game changer in the world of clitoral vibrators and it comes in the form The Womanizer Deluxe W500. The cup at the tip fits over the clitoris and creates a light suction along with vibration for a unique sensation. In the W500, they have added 8 levels of intensity and redesigned the shape slightly to make it easier to handle. Either way, this is for those who like direct and firm stimulation of the clitoris.
