Wand vibrators have come a long way in recent years. Gone are the days when the best and only wand vibrator on the market was the Magic Wand. While it’s as popular today as it was way back when, your options are no longer limited to this one product. Now, the market is overflowing with a wide range of vibrating wands to maximize the pleasure.

With their bulbous heads and powerful vibrations, these magic wands can turn partnered play or a masturbation session into an experience with a capital E—and many also offer pleasure outside the bedroom. It works just as well as a body “massager” for releasing muscle pain (which, fun fact, was the purpose for which it was originally marketed by the inventors of the Magic Wand, Hitachi).

Suffice it to say, wand-style vibrators are the ultimate workhorses. Whether you’re looking to intensify your orgasms, decrease muscle tension, or both, pleasure-seekers have many options to choose from, including corded and cordless varieties and in various sizes, ranging anywhere from three to 12 inches in length.

To determine what makes the best wand vibrator, we spoke to four sexperts: sexologists Carol Queen, PhD, and Jess O’Reilly, PhD, as well as Cindy Luquin, CSE, sex educator and founder of Pleasure to People, and sex therapist and licensed clinical social worker Chanta Blue, LCSW, CST.

Below, find 17 of the best wand vibrators, many of which come highly recommended by experts.

Magic Wand The Original Magic Wand Vibrator

Most popular: Magic Wand, The Original Magic Wand Vibrator — $70.00

Material: Vinyl, ABS plastic | Speed: 2 | Pattern: 0 | Size: 10 inches in length | Type: Corded

When you think of a wand vibrator, chances are the Magic Wand comes to mind. The Magic Wand, which was previously known as the Hitachi Magic Wand, remains a popular pick for many, says Dr. Queen—and for good reason. The wand is ten inches long, and the plug-in toy has a six-foot-long power cord, so it’s great for people who don’t want to worry about having to charge up their toy. That way, you can use it—in the words of Lionel Richie—all night long. It also has two different intensity speeds, ranging from 5,000 to 6,000 vibrations per minute, making it incredibly powerful. As such, it isn’t the quietest option on the list. “I like to say it purrs like a kitten, but to be honest, it’s a big kitten, so if you have thin walls and you’re a little shy, or you want to consensually use your vibe next to your partner after they’ve fallen asleep, you might want a different model,” says Dr. Queen.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • Expert recommended
  • Powerful, rumbly vibrations
  • Six-foot-long power cord

Cons:

  • Limited speed and vibration patterns

Magic Wand Mini

Best mini version of a popular wand vibrator: Magic Wand, Mini — $89.00

Material: Silicone, ABS plastic | Speed: 3 | Pattern: 0 | Size: 9.6 inches in length | Type: Cordless

Less intimidating but no less powerful than its predecessor is the Magic Wand Mini. iIt comes with a few upgrades: It has three speeds, ranging from 3,5000 to 6,000 vibrations per minute, and it’s made from silicone as opposed to vinyl. Its size, which is a little over nine inches long, also makes it a great on-the-go option, says Dr. Queen. Plus, it’s powered by a rechargeable battery. It offers over two hours of uninterrupted pleasure—and when not in use, it automatically shuts off after 20 minutes to conserve power. Just keep in mind that it takes just as long to recharge the battery.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • 3 speeds
  • Automatic shut-off function
  • Made from body-safe silicone

Pepper Pamper Massage Wand

Best touch-activated: Pepper, Pamper Massage Wand — $89.00

Material: Silicone | Speed: 3 | Pattern: 6 | Size: Not specified | Type: Cordless

Pepper’s Pamper Massage Wand comes equipped with three speeds and six vibration patterns, along with a flexible head, allowing for some customization. “This looks like a nice vibe,” says Dr. Queen. “I especially like the touch-sensor function, which many others don’t have.” The touch-sensor function makes this wand a cinch to use: it comes alive when it comes into contact with your body, and it shuts off after a certain period of noncontact. A casual swipe of your finger also lets you adjust the speed to your liking. As responsive as it is to touch, it isn’t so sensitive as to accidentally power on without your consent.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • 3 speeds and 6 vibration patterns
  • Automatic shut-off function
  • Flexible head
  • Splash-proof

Cons:

  • Might be delays in powering on unit

Le Wand Petite Mini Rechargeable Massage Wand Vibrator

A more quiet option: Le Wand, Petite Mini Rechargeable Massage Wand Vibrator — $145.00

Material: Silicone, ABS plastic | Speed: 10 | Pattern: 6 | Size: 10 inches in length | Type: Cordless

The Le Wand Petite comes recommended by Luquin. “It’s the most popular one with great reviews,” she says. “It looks like your typical body wand massager with a head and handle, which makes it easier on your hands and simpler to maneuver.” However, Dr. Queen mentions that since it’s smaller and quieter compared to other options featured on the list, it emits less powerful vibrations. Still, it’s worth consideration: It’s made from body-safe silicone, and it features 10 speeds and six vibration patterns. What’s more, it operates cordlessly and is shower-friendly. One tradeoff: It has a battery life of one hour and it takes twice the amount of time to recharge. Shop it in five colors, including blue, navy, rose gold, dark cherry, and violet.

Colors: 5

Pros:

  • Expert recommended
  • 10 speeds and six vibration patterns
  • Shower-friendly

Lelo Smart Wand 2

Best long-lasting runtime: Lelo, Smart Wand 2 — $199.00

Material: Silicone, ABS plastic | Speed: Not specified | Pattern: 10 | Size: 12 inches in length | Type: Cordless

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 comes with the recommendation of Blue and Luquin—and it’s easy to see why. For one, it’s beautiful, but it is also very ergonomic. “Lelo’s Smart Wand 2 features a more curved design for the handle, which is great because you don’t have to do too much maneuvering of your wrist or elbow,” says Luquin. It has a user-friendly interface, too. It only has three buttons, two of which increase and decrease the speed, and one to toggle among the 10 vibration patterns. The wand is made of body-safe silicone and is fully waterproof, and best of all, it has a battery life of up to four hours.

Colors: 3

Pros:

  • Expert recommended
  • Long battery life of up to four hours
  • 10 vibration patterns

Bellesa Boutique Demi Wand

Best for beginners: Bellesa Boutique, Demi Wand — $69.00

Material: Silicone | Speed: 0 | Pattern: 8 | Size: 3.75 inches in length | Type: Cordless

The Demi Wand is the product of a collaboration between sex toy retailer Bellesa Boutique and superstar Demi Lovato—and it was designed specifically for beginners. While other sex wands use patterns, the Demi Wand only offers eight vibration modes, which you can quickly activate with the button at the bottom of the toy. Plus, the wand is also discreet in both size (it’s a little over three inches long) and sound. Unlike other rechargeable models, the Demi Wand comes with a charging case, but like the best wand vibrators of the bunch, it’s made from body-safe silicone and is fully waterproof.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • Well+Good vetted
  • 8 vibration patterns
  • Includes a charging case
  • Waterproof

Dame Com

Best flexible: Dame, Com — $119.00

Material: Silicone | Speed: 5 | Pattern: 5 | Size: 10.5 inches in length | Type: Cordless

Beloved by Blue, the Dame Com bends any way you want it, so you don’t have to bend over backwards to enjoy the pleasure it provides. “I love the flexibility of the wand, which helps get better angles.” The wand itself is waterproof and made from medical-grade silicone. Plus, it features a total of 10 speed and vibration patterns, which allows for experimentation. The wand is a little over 10 inches long, which makes it larger than most options featured on the list, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing—its size is indicative of its power. Just note that it offers up to one hour of use before needing to be recharged for a little over two hours.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • Expert recommended
  • Flexible body
  • 5 speeds and 5 vibration patterns
  • Waterproof

Palm Power Pocket Massager

Best small: Palm Power, Pocket Massager — $43.00

Material: Silicone | Speed: Not specified | Pattern: Not specified | Size: 3.5 inches in length | Type: Cordless

This rechargeable wand vibrator, as the name suggests, fits in your palm. It’s small like a bullet vibrator, with the ball-shaped head of your standard sex wand. “This would be great for folks who are just starting their toy collection, as it’s compact and thus may not feel too intimidating,” says Blue, with the caveat that it might not be the best option for those who want more powerful vibrations. That aside, it has some pretty impressive specs for something of its stature. It has a runtime of 90 minutes, and it has multiple speed and vibration patterns, though the manufacturer doesn’t indicate exactly how many. The silicone wand is also made water resistant, and it operates using just one button. What’s more, its head is removable so you can fit the wand with multiple attachments.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • Multiple speed and vibration patterns
  • Travel-friendly
  • Comes with a carrying case

Cons:

  • Not as powerful as other listed options

FemmeFunn Ultra Wand

Best textured: FemmeFunn, Ultra Wand — $75.00

Material: Silicone | Speed: 0 | Pattern: 10 | Size: 8.25 inches in length | Type: Cordless

One of the first things that struck us about The FemmeFunn Ultra Wand is that its silicone surface is textured all over. “It is so cool-looking, with a patterned exterior that doubles as a grip assist,” says Dr. Queen, adding, “it’s petite, rechargeable, and waterproof.” This model is available in three different colors—purple, turquoise, and pink—and offers 10 different vibrations. It’s a little over eight inches long and the head measures almost two inches in diameter, and while smaller in size, it makes up for what it lacks in flexibility. Plus, it operates with just one button, making it easy to find what feels good for you.

Colors: 3

Pros:

  • 10 vibration patterns
  • Flexible head
  • Waterproof
  • Offers users a firm grip

We-Vibe Rave 2

Best multipurpose: We-Vibe, Rave 2 — $139.00

Material: Silicone | Speed: 0 | Pattern: 10 | Size: 8.5 inches in length | Type: Cordless

The We-Vibe Rave 2 offers double the pleasure, thanks to its dual-purpose functionality. Not only can you use it for external stimulation, you can also use it for insertion. Plus, there are two motors at either end of the wand to target different erogenous zones at the same time. The wand is made from body-safe silicone, and it offers 10 vibration patterns, which you can select among with a quick push of a button. With this toy, you’ll get two hours of uninterrupted playtime and you can submerge it in water. It has a waterproof rating of IPX7, which means it’s able to withstand temporary submersion. It’s also one of the more high-tech wands on the list, as it can be controlled through an app, making it perfect for “partnered play, especially for those in long-distance relationships,” says Blue.

Colors: 2

Pros:

  • Well+Good vetted
  • Can use for insertion
  • Operates manually or via an app
  • Waterproof IPX7

CalExotics Naughty Bits WILF

Best (less expensive) multipurpose: CalExotics, Naughty Bits WILF — $98.00

Material: Silicone, ABS plastic | Speed: 0 | Pattern: 10 | Size: 8.5 inches in length | Type: Cordless

The Naughty Bits WILF (and, yes, that stands for “Wand I’d Like to F*ck”) is a beautifully patterned massager made out of body-safe silicone. While not all sex wands are meant for internal use, this one is. “I know someone somewhere has flipped the wand over to explore the handle’s erotic possibilities,” says Dr. Queen. This rechargeable vibe has 10 functions “of intense vibration, pulsation, and escalation,” per the product’s page. With a full charge, which takes about two hours and a half, you get up to three hours of pleasure. It’s similar in size to The FemmeFunn Ultra Wand—coming in at eight inches long and a little less than two inches in diameter. Plus, it’s also waterproof.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • 10 vibration patterns
  • Battery life of up to three hours
  • Waterproof

Unbound Babes Ollie

Best waterproof: Unbound Babes, Ollie — $76.00

Material: Silicone| Speed: Not specified | Pattern: Not specified | Size: 12 inches in length | Type: Cordless

This 12-inch-long massage wand boasts a total of eight speeds and vibration patterns as well as waterproof status—you can submerge it in three-foot-deep water for a whole half-hour. “I like this toy because it’s a good size and pretty easy to use to stimulate yourself sexually but to also massage your back,” says Luquin. “It’s the definition of multipurpose.” If you have other Unbound toys, rest assured that the charger for that will also work with the Ollie, since it’s universal. It takes about an hour to fully charge and gives you an hour of play thereafter. The head of this toy is a little over three inches long and almost seven inches in circumference, so it covers a lot at once. Whether you’re looking for a “new bathtime buddy or post-workout massager,” you can’t go wrong with Ollie. (Their words!)

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • Expert recommended
  • Waterproof up to thirty minutes
  • Charger is compatible with other Ollie products
  • Large size makes it ideal for both sexual and non-sensual massage

Doxy Number 3 Die Cast Massager

Most powerful: Doxy, Number 3 Die Cast Massager — $213.00

Material: Silicone, aluminum, titanium | Speed: Not specified | Pattern: Not specified | Size: 11 inches in length | Type: Corded

If Dr. Queen were to pick a favorite wand vibrator, the Doxy Massager would be her top pick. “First of all, it’s super gorgeous,” she says. “These are clad in metal, not plastic, have silicone heads, are corded, and are especially rumbly,” she says. She likens it to the Magic Wand, only she notes that this one has worldwide dual-voltage compatibility so it can accompany you on trips abroad. Also, it has multiple speed and vibration pattern options—and it’s extremely powerful, reaching up to 9,000 vibration per minute. So if you’re looking for a wand that, pleasantly, packs a punch, we suggest this one. It is corded, but the cord is 12 feet long, allowing you plenty of space to work with. As a bonus: its head is removable—and you can replace it with one of Doxy’s other attachments.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • Expert recommended
  • Powerful, rumbly vibrations
  • Durable metal construction
  • Dual-voltage compatibility
  • Removable head
  • Works with other Doxy attachments

Gender X The Sunflower

Best innovative design: Gender X, The Sunflower — $80.00

Material: Silicone, ABS plastic | Speed: 10 | Pattern: 10 | Size: 7.87 inches in length | Type: Cordless

According to Dr. Queen, “The Sunflower is a very modern take on the wand vibe. It vibrates at both ends, has multiple functions, is mid-range strong—for those who find the powerhouse wands to be a bit much—and its head is textured for varying sensation.” One look at the waterproof Sunflower is all you need to know it stands out from the pack exactly because of its new-age design. Instead of having a tennis-ball-like tip, The Sunflower features a ribbed head for different sensations throughout your body and a more pointed tip for more targeted stimulation. It also comes equipped with a total of 20 vibrating speeds and functions, all customizable with the touch of the top button (for increasing speeds) or the bottom button (in case you want to slow it all down). A bonus: you also have the option to light up in the dark.

Colors: 1

Pros:

  • 20 speeds and vibration pattern
  • Ribbed head
  • Waterproof
  • Five-year warranty

Cons:

  • It isn’t as powerful as other options on the list

Zalo Kyro Wand Massager

Best with attachments: Zalo, Kyro Wand Massager — $129.00

Material: Silicone | Speed: 6 | Pattern: 5 | Size: 11.46 inches in length | Type: Cordless

This wand massager has it all—a silicone body, multiple speed and vibration patterns, and as if that weren’t enough, two attachments to make it versatile. One attachment is made for nipple and clitoral stimulation, while the other targets your G-spot—both of which are also made from body-safe silicone. Commerce editor Francesca Krempa took it for a spin, and she was thoroughly impressed. “Aesthetics aside, the sheer power of this wand is what’s most impressive. Like its Magic Wand cousin, it packs a punch, featuring Zalo’s innovative vibrating technology that concentrates whisper-quiet vibrations into the wand’s head for serious stimulation,” Krempa wrote. “Add the silicone attachments for teasing and tickling? Your body will feel like the sacred temple it is.” What’s more, it operates cordlessly and it has a runtime of up to two hours (you just have to be sure to charge it for the equivalent amount of time).

Read the full review of the Zalo Kyro Wand Massager here.

Colors: 2

Pros:

  • Well+Good vetted
  • Multiple speed and vibration patterns
  • Includes two attachments

Cons:

  • It’s on the large side

Le Wand Die Cast Plug-In Vibrating Massager

Most speed and vibration patterns: Le Wand, Die Cast Plug-In Vibrating Massager — $210.00

Material: Silicone, aluminum alloy| Speed: 10 | Pattern: 20 | Size: 11.42 inches in length | Type: Corded

The Le Wand Die Cast Plug-In Vibrating Massager offers the most speed and vibration patterns on this list, making it ideal for those who want full control over their experience. Its head is made from silicone while its handle is cast in aluminum alloy, which lends the wand a weightier feel that induces more pressure—and thus, more pleasure—when you press it against your body. This is something to which Well+Good contributor Gabrielle Kassel has attested: “The vibrations were so powerful I couldn’t just feel them through the layers, but I was able to cum from the indirect contact.” The wand also comes equipped with an eight-foot-long power cord, but if you’d prefer a wireless version, Le Wand offers a rechargeable version for a few more dollars.

Colors: 2

Pros:

  • 10 speeds and 20 vibration patterns
  • Eight-foot-long power cord
  • Comes in rechargeable version

Ava Personal Wand Massager

Material: Silicone | Speed: 8 | Pattern: 20 | Size: 7.9 inches in length | Type: Cordless

If you’re looking for one of the best vibrators on Amazon, look no further than Ava’s best-selling Personal Wand Massager. It’s received over 7,000 5-star reviews from happy customers, and it meets expert criteria. The wand is made from body-safe silicone, and it has eight speeds and 20 vibration patterns to choose from—and, not to mention, it’s waterproof. The manufacturer indicates that it offers up to six hours of interrupted play, but some reviewers have mentioned that the runtime isn’t as long as promised. You’ll also have to recharge it for two and half hours to get it back to full speed. This aside, it is ideal for anyone who is looking for a budget-friendly wand vibrator—it’s the cheapest option featured on the list at just under $30.

Colors: 3

Pros:

  • 8 speeds and 20 vibration patterns
  • The most inexpensive option on the list
  • Has over 7,000 5-star reviews on Amazon

What is a wand vibrator?

A wand vibrator, also known as a sex wand, is one of many types of vibrators. Its most notable features include its knob-shaped head and its powerful vibrations—the combination of which makes it so pleasurable when it comes into contact with the clit, prostate, or any other erogenous zone. The wand works for solo play and couples play—and with equal aplomb. And it can be great for bridging the “orgasm gaps” between people with a vagina versus a penis as it can offer clitoral stimulation, and, in turn, help increase chances of an orgasm.

Moreover, wand vibrators can work outside the realm of sexual wellness. As Blue tells Well+Good, “Sex wands are personal vibrating massagers that you can use for sexual pleasure and to relieve muscle tension.” When viewed this way, vibrating wands suddenly bear a striking resemblance to Theraguns, only one is more multifunctional than the other. (We’ll leave it up to you to figure out which is which.)

What to consider when shopping for the best wand vibrator

Choosing a wand vibrator is largely a matter of personal preference—there is no universally perfect model because every body is different. With that said, there are a few considerations when shopping for wand-style vibrators.

Material

First, consider the material of the wand vibrator. “You want to make sure it’s made from a body-safe material,” says Blue. Body-safe materials, like silicone, borosilicate glass, and stainless, are nonporous, making them less likely to harbor bacteria and typically easier to clean, and thereby make them more hygienic.

Speed and vibration patterns

Many top-rated wand toys have at least a few speeds to choose from, so you can adjust the intensity of the vibrations. Wand vibrators may also offer an array of vibration patterns to elicit a variety of sensations, which gives more opportunity to experiment and explore what works best for your body.

Size

Wand-style vibrators come in various sizes, ranging palm-sized wands to options that are as long—if not longer than—a rolling pin. If size matters to you if you want something portable as opposed to a larger, albeit more powerful, model (or vice versa).

Corded or cordless wand vibrator?

Wand vibrators typically come in corded and cordless varieties. Cordless options are more convenient and travel-friendly because they don’t require an outlet. However, you won’t have to worry about the battery dying while in use with a corded wand vibrator, and they also tend to offer more powerful vibrations for their price tag.

How to use a wand vibrator

“When using a wand vibrator for sexual purposes, it’s best for external use when stimulating the genital area, such as the clitoris, the penis, and the scrotum,” says Blue, who underscores that unless indicated by the manufacturer, most wand vibrators aren’t designed for insertion. “I would recommend rubbing the wand along your external genitalia as well as other erogenous zones to explore which sensations you enjoy best.”

As for when to use it? “Solo stimulation is where the wand really shines since its size isn’t usually an issue in this case, and it’s an easy vibe to use,” says Dr. Queen. However, you may opt to use the wand during intercourse, whether you use the vibrator to edge your partner or, honestly, as an actual body massager before delving into the act itself.

Whether you’ve never used a wand vibrator or want to spice up sex with a partner, it’s typically user-friendly. “On the surface, a wand can look intimidating, but it’s actually a great toy for beginners and pros alike as it’s highly versatile,” says Dr. O’Reilly. And should a wand vibrator be more unpleasant than pleasurable, there are other vibrator alternatives to stoke you and/or a partner’s fire and are just as worthy of inclusion in a sexual wellness routine.

Should you use lube with a wand vibrator?

Yes. Regardless of where you put it, you’ll typically want to use a personal lubricant to reduce the risk of chafing, says Blue. Luquin echoes, “You always want to use lube because it’ll prevent friction, making it more pleasurable. Water-based lube is easy to wash off and compatible with most sex toys.”
