The best wand vibrators, also known as magic wand vibrators, double up as sex toys and all-over muscle massagers to use alone or with a partner. We put top brands to the test, to bring you this round-up of the best.

Wand massagers, or magic wand vibrators, are the original sex toy of the 70s, thanks to a wand-shaped body massager called the Hitachi. While the device wasn't marketed as a sex toy, the Wand gained a reputation for being excellent for clitoral stimulation. Fast forward to the early noughties, and sales soared once again when Sex and the City's Samantha was seen using a toy that looked similar to the infamous Wand. Ever since, sex toy brands have been bringing us their take on the highly versatile pleasure toy in a range of shapes and sizes. 

Compared to other types of the best vibrators, wands come in different sizes with an array of attachments that can be used for everything from clitoral play to massaging stiff neck muscles. Most wand vibrators resemble a microphone, featuring a round bulbous head and a flexible neck, however, you’ll also find ones with rabbit ears and textured handles for internal use. They're great all-rounders, whether you're riding solo or with a partner. See our top picks below, and trust us, you won't be disappointed.

How we tried and tested the best wand vibrators

Why you can trust Woman & Home Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

We tried and tested multiple wand vibrators from top brands, including Le Wand, Lovehoney, Lelo, We-Vibe, and Svakom. 

When testing, we considered the key factors below, including design, size, power and the attachments available. But, if you need any more convincing, check out the health benefits of using a vibrator that you might not know about...

  • Design: We considered how to use a vibrator in the best way, choosing toys that were easy to hold with great grip so you can move it around your body, whether you're using it for loosening tight muscles or during play.
  • Size: Smaller, lightweight and portable wand vibrators are best if you plan to travel with your wand vibrator. Larger wands are more versatile but anything too bulky or awkward to handle could be a real mood killer so consider what size you're comfortable using. However, Gigi Engle (opens in new tab), ACS, certified sex educator points out "its weighty design is ideal for intense, rumbly & powerful stimulation".
  • Power: Speaking of mood killers, no-one wants a wand vibrator with a battery that's going to run out just as they're about to climax. "Rechargeable vibes are fabulous because you can use a USB cable or charging cord to charge them, whereas, with battery powered devices, you need to keep changing them every time it runs out of juice," says Gigi. "Plug-in vibrators are considered to be the créme de le créme of power because they get an extra 'boost' of energy from the wall socket."
  • Added extras: The more attachments and functions = the more variety in the bedroom. "Some toys are available with wand attachments that can offer every kind of stimulation imaginable, turning the toy into multiple toys," Gigi adds. 
  • Price: The best wand vibrators aren't cheap. You can find an affordable body wand massager that gets the job done; however, pricier options tend to be more tech-savvy and durable, lasting you many orgasms to come.

Noisier than other vibrators on the list

Ultra-powerful and extremely sizeable, you definitely get what you pay for with the Lelo Smart Wand 2 - and that means quality vibes that won’t disappoint. When it comes to the Smart Wand 2, which is available in black, dark pink, and aqua, it's smooth and sleek with a look-at-me-now shiny gold handle, that makes the design leagues above the competition.

In fact, the super-soft silicone is incredibly pleasurable to handle. While it’s great to use with a partner, it’s worth noting that the extra-long shaft makes it easy to give yourself a massage, and can help target those harder-to-reach erogenous zones. 

Using this LELO wand isn't too different from how you use a bullet vibrator, if you're a fan on the smaller vibes then this should be right up your street. There are 10 vibrating modes to choose from and, once this body wand massager is charged up, the intensity of some of these settings is insane. You can definitely tell the difference between the buzzing variations, which isn’t always the case with cheaper models. The bulbous head changes direction and intensity with ease. So, if you’re looking for something to give you pleasure - and fast - then this is it. 

The Lelo Smart Wand 2 is definitely one of the best body wand vibrators we’ve tried. With four-hour battery life, you really won’t want to go back to cheaper versions any time soon. Just be wary if you live with other people. This beast of a vibrator is noisy - so prepare for the bedroom to rattle in more ways than you might expect!

2. Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Wand Massager

Best rabbit wand vibrator

Specifications

Length: 266mm
Weight: 200g

Running time: N/A

Added extras: Latex-free, bunny ears give targeted clitoral stimulation
RRP: $99.99 / £79.99

Only available in black 

If you love the Happy Rabbit G-Spot Vibrator, but find you only use it for clitoral stimulation, then switching to the Happy Rabbit Wand Massager is a great choice. The clever design is a hybrid of a typical wand vibrator but it has bunny ears where the bulbous head would normally be. This means you get really targeted clitoral stimulation, which can help you prioritize your orgasm. 

But, it’s not just the bunny ears that will help give you pleasure. As one of the best rabbit vibrators, this toy also buzzes and can be used on erogenous zones, such as nipples, your stomach, or your back, making it good for use with a partner too. Fully charged in 150 minutes, it's also waterproof, so great to use for some added fun in the bathroom. 

The tapered handle makes it easy to hold, which is good as there are 10 different vibrations to choose from and three different speeds. These get intense, so you need to hold on tight.

Our tester thought the added extras made this such a good buy and one of the best of its kind. Not only is there a travel lock so it won’t go off unexpectedly in your bag, but the Happy Rabbit Wand Massager is latex-free and phthalate-free, and so is ideal if you have allergies or are sensitive down below. The only downside is that if you like to have your sex toys in an array of bright colors, sadly, it’s only available in black.

3. Wand by We-Vibe

Best luxury wand vibrator

Specifications

Length: 309mm
Weight: 413g
Waterproof: Yes
Running time: Up to 2 hours
Vibe patterns: 10
Added extras: Latex free, two extra attachments, can be used with app via Bluetooth, joystick-style control, Smart Silence mode

No storage bag

The Wand by We-Vibe is an XXL choice with an ultra-flexible neck for added versatility. But that’s not all. Thanks to the Smart Silence function, the Wand will buzz only when it touches your skin or a surface. This is due to the clever sensor in the head, which makes sure that the vibes start only when you want them to. This stops unnecessary buzzing and so makes the whole experience a lot quieter. 

Another benefit of the Wand by We-Vibe is that it comes with two custom attachments to slip around the head, which means your toy can be used in multiple different ways. The vibrations are intense, even in the softer settings, so it can help you climax very quickly. And, thanks to the free We-Vibe app, if you want your Wand to be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world, all you have to do is connect your toy via Bluetooth.

The reason we rate the Wand so highly is that the usual two buttons most wand vibrators have to change the speed of the vibes have been given a total upgrade, and have been replaced by a joystick-like controller. You simply push the joystick either up or down, depending on whether you want to go faster or slower. Not only is this great if you have mobility issues in your hands or are using it in an awkward position with your partner, but it just makes you feel so much more in control. It’s a lot more seamless than other toys.

You’ll use the Wand by We-Vibe for many years to come, so it’s certainly worth your investment.

Satisyer’s Wand-er Woman is great to use for giving yourself a neck massage. You could stop there and still feel it was worth the price. But, this device also doubles up to stimulate your clitoral area and vulva, meaning orgasms will be intense. Although huge, this toy isn’t intimidating, as it’s not meant for penetration. In fact, most of the length is simply the handle, and it’s the circular end that has the motor in it. A mix between the massager and sex toy, it’s ideal for foreplay and those using sex toys for the first time.

If you’re not sure which wand vibrator is for you, then spending less is the obvious choice. But, that doesn’t mean you have to make a sacrifice on quality. The Satisfyer Wand-er Woman is a great pick for this reason, with the only main difference between this choice and the more premium ones is that it’s a bit heavier and doesn’t come with a complimentary storage pouch.

You may have to watch out for the charge time, though - and plan ahead. The first charge can take up to eight hours and, after that, a full charge is around five hours. And the battery will run down after 70 mins, which isn’t much considering you might want to use it for a full-body massage for you and your partner first. 

You don’t have to spend long reading a manual to work out how to use it. To turn it on, simply hold down the control button for a couple of seconds and then click through to find the vibe setting you like. The trouble is, with 10 to choose from, it takes a while to get back around to your faves! 

This XXL best wand vibrator is far too big to hide, so keep it by the sofa for mutual pleasure when you need it most.

Smaller than most wands

Short battery life on high

Wand vibrators tend to be big. And, by that, we mean extra-large, jumbo-sized toys that can seem intimidating at times. So, while at 197mm, the Adam & Eve Intimate Curves Rechargeable Wand is certainly not small compared to other sex toys, it is petite when lined up against other wand vibrators. 

Being more compact can be a good thing as, despite the small stature, this rechargeable wand is still just as powerful. It has 10 vibe functions to choose from, and there’s enough variation to find something you like. Plus, if you’re new to sex toys or maybe want a body wand for solo use rather than with a partner, then this is the best choice before you move on to something bigger. 

Yet the main reason our tester rated this as one of the best wand vibrators is that, unlike a lot of others on the market, it can be used for G-spot stimulation. That’s because the design allows you to insert the cleverly curved handle inside you if that’s what you choose. It's impressively versatile.

Fully waterproof, this choice is ideal for use in the bathroom (hello sex in the shower) - and it's here the smaller size can make all the difference when it comes to manoeuvring around awkward angles. The handle also has extra ridges, which is great for easy grip, especially when things get slippery!

The only downside we can find is that it only comes in pink.

If you like using your sex toy solo while imagining sex play with a partner, then the INMI Ultra Thrust-Her Wand Massager is one of the best wand vibrators for you. That’s because this double-ended delight has been designed to feel like the real deal by offering not just vibrations, but throbs, thrums, and thrusts. While you can use it as a full-body massager or to help arouse external areas and the clitoris, you can also turn it the other way round and the device turns into a thrusting sex toy to use internally.

To enjoy the extra thrusting setting (which is around 152mm long), you do have to make sacrifices. At 273mm, the INMI Ultra Thrust-Her Wand Massager isn’t quite as large as some of the other mega massagers, which means it’s hard to reach the trickier parts of your body without the long handle. However, it’s great for seeing which sensations you prefer, which can help you make decisions on what sex toys should be in your arsenal going forward. 

And, it’s not just the thrusting ability that helped give this wand vibrator a coveted place on our list. The phthalate-free silicone means it’s super soft, which is essential when you’re using every inch of it. Be warned, though - the thrusting action can be intense when used inside, so our top tip is to make sure you have plenty of the best lube (water-based) on standby.

Reasons to avoid

Controls can be tricky

Lovehoney’s Desire Luxury Rechargeable Wand Vibrator looks more like an ice-cream cone than a wand, but it still has the right magic to help you achieve orgasm - fast. This is largely thanks to the added nub, which was included in the updated design of Lovehoney’s popular sex toy, and means it can really target clitoral stimulation. The cone-shaped design also makes it really easy to handle.

But, the main reason we’ve included this in our round-up and given it such high marks is the intensity of the vibrations it gives off. With eight vibration patterns and 12 speeds to choose from, this is ideal for those who want something ticklish and gentle one minute, and really powerful vibrations the next. The only downside is that it can be slightly tricky at times to slip between them when you’re in the middle of pleasure.

Fully waterproof, the Lovehoney Desire Luxury Rechargeable Wand Vibrator is easy to clean and can be stored in the complimentary storage pouch included. See our guide to how to clean a vibrator if you need a refresh.

Le Wand Rechargeable Massager looks like a traditional wand vibrator (which is very similar to a microphone) except much, much bigger. This means you can easily grip the handle while working the vibrating head over every area of your body, making it one of the best wand vibrators on our list. And, if someone sees it in your house or bag, they may just think it’s a device to help relax tired and aching muscles.

Sleek and smooth, you’d expect something this size to be powerful, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. There are a staggering number of vibration patterns to choose from (20 to be precise), which is more than any other wand vibrator we tried and tested. 

At around 68dB at its loudest setting, the Le Wand is on the noisy side (this is about the same level as a standard conversation). But, it won’t go off unexpectedly in your bag thanks to the travel lock, which is just one of the reasons we think it’s one of the best available right now.

Not only can you use it for muscles and sweet spots, so you won’t get bored easily, but if you go for the Le Wand brand then you can keep adding to your collection and improving the toy you have. That’s because they sell textured silicone accessories which can be attached to the head of this toy to spice things up even further, instantly giving you a whole new way of using it.

Large sex toys can not only be intimidating, but they can also be heavy. Step forward, Kandid Wand Vibrator The Small One. At just 159g, this is a super lightweight pick, which is ideal if you like to use your wand vibrator for a lengthy time and don’t like to be weighed down. After all, you want to get in all the angles you desire, without having to worry about aching wrists or having to stop.

But, that’s not the only reason why Kandid’s Wand Vibrator The Small One made it into our picks. Everything about this choice is well thought out. This includes how it’s super quiet, and how delicate the vibes can be if you like it that way. Even the box it comes in features a pretty design that wouldn’t look out of place in a boutique.

Just one downside is that it is only submersible and not fully waterproof so, if you plan on using yours underwater for more than 30 mins at a time, it might be safer to look for a different option. The best bit? If you love this easy-to-use buy, you can always upgrade to the larger model at a later date.

When technology and sex toys combine, sometimes the results can be out of this world, and the Svakom Emma Neo Interactive App Controlled Warming Wand Vibrator is just that. This is why we voted it one of the best wand vibrators. Not only can it be controlled by an app (great for long distance love), but this must-buy wand vibrator comes with bunny ear attachments and can gently heat up for extra pleasure.

If you have already tried one of the best remote vibrators controlled by an app, such as the We-Vibe Sync, then you’ll already know how enjoyable the thought of someone else controlling your orgasm from a distance can be, even if it’s just from a different room in the house. Not only can you sync the vibes to music, but you can even connect the toy with a webcam if that's something you're interested in. 

Our tester really rated the warming function that heats the Svakom wand to 38°, which means you never have to worry about putting something cold on your body ever again. Amazing.

Smaller than others 

From eco-conscious sex toy brand Love Not War, the KOI is a small but mighty wand vibrator that's perfect for travel and equally at home on our list of best sex toys for beginners as it is here. With seven vibration patterns and four intensity levels, it ranges from slow deep rumbles to intense quick vibrations so you’ll never get bored. 

Despite its petite size, it’s deceptively powerful. It’s great for clitoral stimulation but can also be used on tense muscles. Our tester found it particularly satisfying on neck muscles and the flexible head made it easy to manoeuvre. It’s made from waterproof, body-safe silicone so you can use it for shower play too. And, there's a handy travel lock so you never have to worry about it going off unexpectedly in your luggage (press the button firmly for six seconds to lock). Plus, it comes with a fabric storage pouch for safe-keeping.

Here at w&h HQ, we're big fans of Love Not War (check out their small vibe in our pick of the best bullet vibrators) and we admire its eco credentials. The sex toy brand's products are built to last, with repairable and recyclable batteries. If there is an issue with your toy, the brand will repair it for you, and if it's not repairable it will be recycled at its custom-built green-powered factory. What's more, the rechargeable battery is also compatible with other Love Not War toys so you can mix and match with other toy heads. 

The only downside to this wand, is that on the more intense vibration settings the handle shakes and can be quite uncomfortable and distracting in the throes of passion. Other than that, it's a powerful wand that will become your go-to travel buddy.

Handle shakes when vibrating 

Mantric's Rechargeable Wand Vibrator is a bestseller for a reason. The wand has a curved handle and flexible neck that makes it easier than ever to find your sweet spots. Our tester rated the ergonomic design, and thought it made this wand even more accessible for those with mobility issues who may find a flexible, curved handle easier to use. 

With seven vibration modes and five intensity levels, its rumbling sensations feel great on the clitoris, erogenous zones and on tense muscles. The silicone head is soft on skin, but is best used with a water-based lube. Our tester appreciated the LED panel on the side of the wand that changed colours as they cycled through the settings, meaning they could easily remember which vibration modes they enjoyed the most. 

Despite the helpful curved handle, our tester did notice that it vibrated quite a lot on the more intense vibration patterns which might be a total mood-killer and difficult to hold for some. However, in this case, it could be used hands-free with the support of a pillow or cushion.

Another small but mighty mini wand with a rotating head that easily competes with the larger models on the market. The Lovense Domi 2 is one of the best app controlled vibrators for long-distance love. The free Lovense Remote app means your partner can still get in on play time no matter where they are in the world. With a special Long Distance setting, all you have to do is connect with your partner's smartphone and give up control. There's also a video call option for those who want to use it.

But, this mini wand isn't just for couples. It's equally fun for solo play, and thanks to the app, the vibe patterns are endless. You can use pre-programmed settings, discover patterns created by other Lovense users or create your own. Our tester also enjoyed that the Domi 2 could sync up with their favourite music for a totally different sensual experience. 

At just 234mm, this rechargeable wand is small enough for travelling and will fit easily into your carry-on, however it doesn't come with a storage pouch. It's also worth noting the Domi 2 is only splashproof, so it cannot be submerged or used in the shower. It's an expensive toy, so it's important to consider if waterproof properties are a deal-breaker for you before you invest. 

The benefits of a wand vibrator

Wand vibrators have lots of benefits, for both solo fun and couples play. According to Gigi Engle, who is also the author of All The F*cking Mistakes: a guide to sex, love, and life (opens in new tab) ,and Nadia Deen, founder of AM Appointment (opens in new tab), wand vibrators are versatile and accessible toys that offer broad, external stimulation. 

  • More stimulation: The long wand-like base makes it easy to access the clitoris without having to reach down and adjust your toy too much. "The toys offer deep, rumbly external vibration to the person who wants or needs more base in their bump,” says Nadia. “Unlike a smaller bullet vibrator, wands offer broader stimulation, meaning they cover a wider area, and therefore give you more chance of an orgasm.”
  • External toys: "They’re non-intrusive, not internal, and are not phallic shaped,” adds Nadia. “This means that they’re really great for all genders and genitalia, but also a perfect toy for people who have experienced some form of sexual trauma, genital mutilation, or have medical or physical problems (such as vaginismus), which causes pain during sex." 
  • Versatile: You can use them hands-free in lots of different positions. “Don’t be afraid to get creative with it. You can straddle it sitting up, or bend over it like in doggy style. You can use it alone, as part of mutual masturbation, or in tandem with a partner.” Gigi says.
  • Accessible size: Don’t be turned off by the toy's typically large form. “With technology getting better at putting stronger motors into smaller items, it is possible to get smaller wands. However, the larger ones do have their benefits too. The bigger sizes make it easier for people with limited mobility to use and reach their erogenous zones," explains Nadia.
  • Doubles as massager: Of course, you can also use them to massage aching muscles. “Use on your back or thighs after sports activities or place on your tummy as a great tension relief for period cramps,” adds Nadia. 

How to use a wand vibrator

These types of vibrators are great for both solo and partnered play. Regardless of their size, they can be rather agile when used with imagination. Whether you're playing alone or with a partner, use plenty of lube, and go slow, working your way down to the clitoris.

How to use a wand vibrator alone: 

  1. Grinding: "Sitting on or rubbing against wand vibrators is an easy, hands-free way to control the intensity of the vibration. Add a textured attachment head to play with different sensations," Nadia suggests. 
  2. With another toy: "Approximately 70% of people with vulvas need clitoral stimulation in order to have any type of orgasm," explains Nadia. "To increase your chances of both a clitoral and G-spot orgasm, consider combining a wand vibrator with a sturdy metal or glass dildo.”
  3. Edging from a distance: "This is the tantalizing art of bringing yourself to the tip of an orgasm and then stopping or slowing down, only to work your way up again," Nadia tells us. "Sit with one of the best wand vibrators as close to your clitoris as comfortable, then when you’re close to coming, simply move it further away. You’ll still get the vibrations, but less intensely. Repeat until you absolutely have to finish.” 

How to use a wand vibrator with a partner: 

  1. Share the vibes: "As the vibrations of body wands are so strong, both partners will be able to feel them whether or not they are directly touching them," Nadia explains. "That means, if you’re being penetrated with a penis while using a wand on your clitoris, the penis owner will be able to feel it too.”
  2. Choose your position carefully: "Any position that allows easy access to the clitoris is a winner. Missionary is good if you sit the body wand vibrator in between you both," says Nadia. "Doggy, person-on-top and even anal are also great, as you have the freedom and access to use the wand on the clitoris.” Try the best sex positions until you find one that feels good for you both and your new toy. 
  3.
