We're all just looking for a good time. Sometimes, it is best spent on one's own, slowing down, feeling it out, making space for yourself. Other times, it is partnered, rousing, experiential. It is eros, unbound and unguarded.
In the words of Federico García, who inspired our Desire issue, “to burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves.” A new wave of gratification has been welcomed into the folds, one of self-satisfaction and indulgence where it matters most. Masturbation, to cut to the chase, is finally having its moment in time. A trashing of taboos and suddenly we're all getting off - so to speak - on the idea of it. Enter: the vibrator. Once synonymous with Samantha's prehistoric Hitachi plug-in, the vibrator has transcended the moment, evolving into subtle accouterments good enough for our bedsides and even better for our sex lives. Some are hands-off (literally), some are more robust. Knowing which works for you is paramount to the process. In hot pursuit of the leading offerings, these are the best vibrators for myriad scenarios.
An affordable option for the sensitive. Ultra-quiet and made from body-safe soft silicone, the Tia is palm-sized and ergonomically curved to fit the shape of your hand, it is aimed towards external use, is shaped like a small leaf, and features a subtle knoll that helps to hone in on vibrations. Simple and effective.
Suitable for solo play but designed with couples in mind, the Eva has flexible wings to nestle under the labia for a secure, comfortable fit, and hands-free experience while switching up positions *Ariana Grande plays*.
