An awesome question: What's the most intense vibrator?

What vibrator do you recommend for significant stimulation!

To which I must respond with another question:

Significant stimulation of what?

For intense stimulation of the clitoris, the Hitachi Magic Wand – a.k.a., The Cadillac of Vibrators – has been the gold standard for a long time. It’s big, it’s loud, it plugs into the wall, and it will get just about anybody to orgasm, under the right circumstances. It’ll generally run you about $55. I recommend getting a plug-in dimmer with it, since it has just two speeds; the dimmer gives you a wider option of intensities – or you can give the dimmer to a partner and let them control the intensity!

When I asked sex toy maven extraordinaire Erika Moen, she pointed me to THE DOXY, which apparently has 30% more power than the Hitachi and also has a variable speeds, so you don’t need the dimmer. It is also, alas, $135. Jeepers.

Erika also recommends the Orgasmatron (which, she points out,  is technically a gyrator, not a vibrator) for internal stimulation. Check it out!

If you’re looking for intense INTERNAL stimulation, then you want to consider not just vibration but hardness – look for acrylic, glass, stone, wood, or steel toys – and width. Width is more important than depth, for intensity of sensation with vaginal stimulation. Harder, wider objects provider more intense stimulation.

And always remember, any toy that you put in your butt MUST HAVE A FLANGE or else you’ll turn into some ER doc’s favorite cocktail party story.

Finally, the good folks at Good Vibrations have made a Vibrator Intensity Chart that organizes vibrators by both vibration intensity and loudness. Thanks, GV!
