This one just screams Valentine’s Day! The Satisfyer Cutie Heart Suction Toy is a pocket-sized air pulse stimulator shaped like an adorable little heart. The shape adapts surprisingly well to solo use. During testing, I found the buttons to be a little fiddly, but overall it was a solid suction toy.
The Librator Fascinator Sex Blanket is exactly what it sounds like. It has a waterproof lining, a soft exterior, and rolls up easily when not in use. This is a great option for anyone who has a drippy partner, or if you just want to make sure your sheets stay dry when you’re having a good time. During testing, I found that the waterproof lining may be a little wrinkled at first, but once you get a little wear, it feels less sticky.
The Lovense Hush is a vibrating butt plug, but instead of having to fumble for buttons on a device, it includes a remote control. This feature came in handy during solo and partner use; Being able to adjust the intensity using the remote control makes it a versatile and fun toy to use.
Lelo’s Sila Cruise is a suction toy designed for slow-builders. During testing, WIRED reviewer Louryn Strampe praised its wide intensity range, which allows it to start extremely gently and build to a deep, powerful orgasm. This is the Cruise version of Lelo, which will automatically increase the intensity of the vibration when you press it harder against your body.
This plug doesn’t vibrate and there’s no remote control, but the Blush Temptasia Pom Butt Plug is a small, affordable size, with an attached (faux fur) bunny tail for an extra touch in the bedroom. I found the size to be perfect for casual gaming and not the kind of stuff you need homework widely to use.
The rose-shaped suction toy is a popular category lately and this is one of our favorites. The One Rose is covered in soft silicone and the buttons are clear and easy to use. The wide, soft mouth facilitates stimulation of a wide variety of erogenous zones, but excels at clitoral stimulation.
The price of the Magic Wand Mini tends to fluctuate frequently. It’s been this price since early December, but every now and then it goes back up to its MSRP. This is our top pick in our Best Vibrators guide, and for good reason. I love its remarkable multi-session battery life (around 2.5 to 3 hours, depending on the intensity of the vibration) and its smaller size compared to the classic (and gigantic) Magic Wand.
I normally don’t put much stock in Amazon reviews, but I was struck by the sheer volume of rave reviews for Ava’s Vivv wand vibrator. The Vivv is a wand vibrator with a silicone unibody design, easily discernible buttons, and a battery with surprisingly long life. During testing, I got almost two hours of battery life. In addition to that, the vibrations it produces are deep and rumbling, even at high and low intensity.
The Ava Mini Go is like a scaled down version of Ava’s Vivv wand massager. It’s surprisingly powerful, but I think it’s very high. This is not a discreet toy, but it is a small and intense toy. The vibrations it produces are more humming than noise, which can be good for more superficial stimulation of sensitive erogenous zones.
