Guide on wand massagers

Believe me, I know how it is.

You want to find a toy that’s satisfying, and made of high-quality materials.

But let’s be real:

Wand massagers can be a bit pricey. No one wants to spend that kind of money and not get what they expect.

The good news is you have plenty of safe, amazingly orgasmic options, which are 100% worth the money!

That’s why I’ve created this ultimate buying guide to find the best wand massager for women.

Save yourself the research time and take a look at what I’ve laid out below.

Get More Comfortable Sensations With Softer Materials

the top of a wand massagerVibrators can be made from a lot of different materials.

A lot of women’s first introduction to vibrators is with a cheap, hard plastic, vaguely phallic shaped vibrator.

That is not what you want.

When you’re purchasing a wand, make sure that the business end is made of silicone.

It is safe for your body and is probably the most comfortable sex toy material out there.

Save Money by Knowing Which Features Matter

These toys can range in price anywhere from $60 to $200.

But different options have different pros and cons. A $200 wand isn’t always your best option.

Do you need something waterproof?

Do you need 20 different speed settings?

Does the color matter?

The answer could be yes or no for any of these. The point is that you must know what matters to you.

Check all the features and make sure you’re not paying for things you won’t use or don’t care about anyway.

Get There Quicker With High Powered Toys

If you ask any woman familiar with sex toys what a wand massager is for, they will tell you right away — extraordinary power.

These types of vibrators are specifically used for providing intense vibrations to the clitoris.

This makes not only for faster orgasms, but also for much stronger ones.

If you haven’t used one for sexual pleasure yet, trust me, you don’t know what you’re missing.

So it makes sense that what a lot of women are looking for in these toys is the highest power they can get for the most intense orgasms.

Stay Discreet With Quieter Motors

One thing some women are looking for in wand vibrators is something quiet enough they can use without alerting the whole house.

If you live with kids or roommates, you probably don’t want to sound a notification that says, “Hey everybody! I’m masturbating now!”

And fortunately, many of the newer models have quieter motors than the original massagers. So if discretion is important in your choice, you can certainly find vibes that fit the requirements.

Additionally, some women just don’t like the distraction of loud sounds coming from their vibrators.

Have Your Choice in Convenience

Wand vibrators come in basically two main varieties — those with a cord and those that are rechargeable (cordless).

Many ladies stand on one side or the other in preference. And each option has its pros and cons.

Corded vibes have the advantage of pretty much never running out of power (barring an actual power outage or electrical issue). And they tend to have the strongest vibrations available.

Rechargeable cordless vibrators, on the other hand, allow for maneuverability without worrying about a cord getting in the way or not reaching far enough. You can use them pretty much anywhere.

The disadvantage to rechargeable toys, however, is that they can run out of power in the middle of use. As long as you keep your toy charged between uses, it’s not a big deal.

But different cordless wands have different charging times and run times between charges, so you’ll want to pay attention to that.

Enjoy Fun in the Shower or Bath

If you’re interested in rechargeable choices, you may want to take a look at the varieties that are waterproof.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all cordless vibrators can go in the tub or shower with you.

Only the varieties that safely encompass all the electrical components are water safe.

But if you find a waterproof massager that you like, oh baby, that opens up a whole new world of fun.

Save Yourself from Embarrassment With Innocent Styles

I mentioned discretion regarding how loud a toy is, but there is also the issue of someone potentially finding your vibrator lying around.

If you have nosey kids, visitors, or roommates, no worries.

You can rest assured that there are wand vibrators that look like harmless back and shoulder massagers.

And of course, if that’s not a concern, there are also some very sexy looking options. Whichever side you fall on, you can get amazing orgasms with either discretion or a super sexy design.

Okay, now that you know what you’re looking for, let’s check out the wands.

The Top 9 Wand Vibrators for Women

1. Hitachi Original Magic Wand

The Original Hitachi Magic Wand Vibrator
This product is now discontinued.

Of course this vibrator is on my list.

However, as of 2019, it is discontinued from some online stores.

That being said, I have left up my quick write up in case you come across it in a local sex shop.

I’m also starting off this list with the Hitachi Original Magic Wand because it is the 30 year reigning champion of wand vibrators.

What makes it so special? Power, power, power.

It has loads of power for deep, rumbling vibrations, thanks to the 6-foot attached cord and big internal motor. And it has won its place as champ thanks to the intense orgasms this provides.

For some, the cord is a nuisance, and it does prevent masturbating in the tub or shower. But with 6 feet to work with, you should never be prevented from reaching a climax.

The best part?

The Original Magic Wand doesn’t look like a sex toy at all. In fact, it was originally sold as a back massager, and only later marketed specifically for use as a clitoral massager.

Pros:

  • High power.
  • Spongy, textured end piece provides perfect comfort for clitoris stimulation, unlike vibrators made from hard materials.
  • Flexible neck that allows you to get just the right angle.
  • Discreet — it does not look like a sex toy.
  • Affordable.

Cons:

  • Only 2 speed settings — low or high.
  • Loud.
  • Not waterproof.

You can certainly buy an attachment to add more speed settings, and you’ll probably still come out ahead on your budget than with some other options.

Maybe you’d rather have a wand that doesn’t need additional tools to get what you want, though.

Let’s see if any of the other contenders can outperform the champ.

2. Magic Wand Rechargeable

Magic Wand RechargeableThis is the new kid on the block.

It takes everything I love about the original and puts it into a form that can be taken anywhere — no cords to get in the way.

Like the Original Magic Wand, the Rechargeable Magic Wand has a discreet appearance.

If someone finds it lying around your house, they may not question at all whether it’s just for muscle relaxation. After all, it does take the tension away, doesn’t it?

And this wand massager is actually registered with the FDA as a medical device, which says a lot about its quality.

Now:

The big difference between this cordless version and its predecessor is that instead of a switch with two speeds, the rechargeable wand has buttons that provide four different speeds and four distinct vibration patterns.

You get a 3 hour running time on 3 hours to full charge.

That means you should get multiple uses out of it before it needs recharging. I do not suggest trying to ride its intense vibrations for 3 hours at a time!

But you can certainly use it for sensation play on other parts of the body before getting to the final act.

Pros:

  • High power.
  • Long run time for a rechargeable wand.
  • Flexible neck that allows you to get just the right angle.
  • Discreet — it does not look like a sex toy.

Cons:

  • Loud.
  • Not waterproof.

3. Lelo Smart Wand

Lelo Insignia Smart WandI love the sleek look of the Lelo Smart Wand.

Simply put, it’s sexy. Which can be surprisingly hard to come by in wand vibrators.

Lelo has clearly put a lot of effort into creating a luxurious experience with this vibrator.

It’s shape is reminiscent of the Magic Wand, but with a more modern design. The handle, neck, and end are all one piece, covered in comfortable silicone.

It gets better:

This rechargeable wand vibrator is also waterproof, which is a huge selling point when you’re talking about creating a luxury experience with your sex toy. Nothing is more luxurious than bubble bath orgasms.

Yes, it’s completely safe to masturbate in the tub. Don’t worry about those old myths that dirty bath water will get inside your vagina. That’s not how it works.

In addition to the bath time perk, this is also one of the quietest wand vibrators I’ve found.

Now, here’s the really special thing about Lelo Smart Wand. It changes the vibration intensity on its own with special sensors in the tip and has 8 settings you can adjust with the touch of a button.

The downside to this wand is that it has a slightly shorter running time than other rechargeable units. It runs for about 2 hours on a full charge.

Pros:

  • Looks sexy.
  • Waterproof.
  • Super quiet.
  • 8 different settings.

Cons:

  • Expensive.
  • Only gets 2 hours of charge.

4. Lelo Gigi 2 Pleasure Object

Lelo Gigi 2 Pleasure ObjectThe Lelo Gigi 2 is another rechargeable option.

Whereas the above vibrators are best for clitoral stimulation, Lelo Gigi 2 is shaped to provide powerful vibrations to the G spot. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t also use it for clitoral stimulation.

It has 5 different vibration patterns, as well as multiple power levels. I love that I can mix up the different intensities and patterns to find just the right sensation.

This wand’s big selling point is that it is much quieter than many other wand vibrators out there. That helps a lot if you share a house or apartment with other people. Nobody wants the embarrassment of trying to explain what all the noise is coming from your room.

Unlike Magic Wand, this wand vibrator’s business end is attached to the handle in one piece, rather than having a flexible neck between the handle and the end.

The shape and size are designed to be insertable.

It’s covered in comfortable, body-safe silicone that is easy to clean. And even better, this wand is waterproof, so you can use it to make a relaxing bath even more indulgent.

Another big plus?

You can get up to 4 hours of play time on a full charge.

However, the long-lasting charge does seem to come at the cost of power, as this wand provides less intense sensations than most others on the list.

Pros:

  • Insertable for multiple types of orgasm.
  • Long run time for a rechargeable wand.
  • Waterproof.
  • Super quiet.

Cons:

  • Not very intense vibrations.

5. Coco de Mer Emmeline Rechargeable Wand

Coco de Mer Emmeline Rechargeable Pleasure WandCoco de Mer Emmeline Rechargeable Wand is the wand vibrator used in the Fifty Shades Freed movie.

Competing with the Lelo Gigi 2, Emmeline is the only other wand on this list designed to allow for G spot stimulation in addition to clitoral stimulation.

It has a beautiful, simple shape, and I really like the chocolate brown and gold colors of the Coco de Mer line of toys.

Like the Lelo Gigi 2, it is rechargeable and has 5 vibration patterns. It also allows for shower time play, with its silicone exterior (the safest material for insertable toys).

With Emmeline’s USB charger, you get 90 minutes of play from 1 hour charging. The low amount of play time until recharging is needed is a bit of a letdown with this.

That being said, it feels much more powerful than the Gigi 2. So if you’re looking for a combo clitoral and G spot massager, you’ll have to decide whether you want longer lasting sessions (or more sessions between charges) or quicker, more intense O’s.

Unfortunately, the Coco de Mer Emmeline Wand is one of the most expensive wands on this list, so it may be a bit pricey, especially for first time buyers. And you still won’t get the super intense vibrations provided by wand vibrators that focus more on clit stimulation than G spot reach.

Pros:

  • Insertable for multiple types of orgasm.
  • Beautiful design.
  • More powerful than other G spot vibrators.
  • Waterproof.

Cons:

  • Expensive.
  • Not as powerful as regular wand massagers.

6. Fifty Shades Freed Awash With Sensation

Fifty Shades Freed Awash with Sensation Plug In Wand VibratorIf you’re hard to please, the Fifty Shades Freed Awash with Sensation wand could be a winner for you.

It has an amazing 20 different vibration patterns and 10 power levels, giving you more options in sensation than other of the other vibrators on this list.

This is a corded option, so you get the usual pros and cons of this variety. It doesn’t run out of power unexpectedly, but you can’t take it in the shower.

This Fifty Shades wand is also pretty to look at, with its purple and gold colors. The color scheme gives it an air of luxury, but the shape is the kind of standard design you expect from a wand vibrator. So there’s not much learning curve if you’re already used to this kind of toy.

Pros:

  • Tons of variety in vibration patterns and power levels.
  • Beautiful design.
  • Flexible neck that allows you to get just the right angle.

Cons:

  • Not the quietest option, but not super loud.
  • Not waterproof.

7. Lovehoney Desire Luxury Rechargeable Wand Vibrator

Desire Luxury Rechargeable Wand VibratorHere’s some good news if you’re lusting after the level of sensation customization offered by the Fifty Shades Freed Awash with Sensation wand, but want something a little more economically priced.

Lovehoney’s Desire Luxury Rechargeable Wand Vibrator also features 20 distinct vibration patterns. It only has 5 intensity levels compared to Awash with Sensation’s 10, but that’s certainly more than enough variety to hit the spot.

Its design mimics the Magic Wand, with a flexible neck to help you maneuver. The drawback of this design, however, is that it is not waterproof.

On the plus side, this toy comes in a pretty purple color that can really help to set the mood, and it’s covered in smooth silicone.

You get 3 hours of play from 3 hours of charging with this rechargeable model.

Pros:

  • Long run time for a rechargeable wand.
  • Lots of variety in vibration patterns and power levels.
  • Less expensive than similar wands.
  • Flexible neck that allows you to get just the right angle.

Cons:

  • Loud.
  • Not waterproof.

8. Fifty Shades Holy Cow! Rechargeable Wand Vibrator

Fifty Shades of Grey Holy Cow! Rechargeable Wand VibratorIf you’re into a wetter play experience (and who isn’t?) Fifty Shades also makes a Holy Cow! Rechargeable Wand Vibrator.

It’s designed as all one smooth silicone piece so that water doesn’t get into any components. And like most high quality wands, the exterior is soft, hypoallergenic silicone.

You get 8 different vibrations patterns with this massager. I find that to be more than enough, since too many options can get confusing and take longer to find the right one.

Holy Cow! Wand Vibrator can charge at any USB port, which sets it apart from many other cordless vibes that charge at regular outlets. Unfortunately, it takes 120 minutes to get to a full charge, which only lasts for 1 hour.

That’s considerably less charging power than the other massagers on this list, including the other USB-charged wand.

Pros:

  • USB charging.
  • Waterproof.

Cons:

  • Only holds 1 hour of charge.

9. Doxy Wand Massager

Doxy Extra Powerful Massage Wand VibratorThis is probably the closest competitor to the Original Magic Wand.

The Doxy gives deep, rumbling vibrations that tons of women have given positive reviews about.

Whereas the Magic Wand has only a switch with 2 speeds to work with, Doxy has simple buttons that allow you to adjust up or down between many intensity settings.

This vibrator also has a longer, 9 foot cord, which really means you should never be too far from an outlet for play time.

Another bonus:

Personally, I prefer the smooth head on this and other massagers to the textured head of the Original Magic Wand.

The Doxy Wand does get loud, but that’s pretty much to be expected with higher powered massagers.

Pros:

  • Seriously high power with deep, rumbling vibrations.
  • Variety of intensity settings.
  • Long, 9-foot cord to reach power anywhere.
  • Less expensive than similar wands.

Cons:

  • Loud.
  • Not waterproof.

It’s Time to Pick a Winner!

Before I announce the winner, the runner-ups:

The Coco de Mer Emmeline is certainly a contender, especially if you want a combo massager and insertable toy. But the high cost is prohibitive for many toy shoppers.

I also really like the Lelo Smart Wand. It has a lot going for it, including a quiet motor, waterproof power, and long-lasting charge. And if you have the money for it, I definitely suggest springing for this massager.

Doxy wand massagerFor the win:

But when I suggest a toy, I want to make sure that it’s reasonable for the largest number of people.

So the winner in this roundup is the Doxy Wand Massager.

I love the Hitachi Original Magic Wand, however it’s not always available.

The good news:

Doxy has improved upon the classic by including more speed controls and longer cord length for maneuverability, without an inhibiting price tag by comparison to other competitors.

So I’m more than happy recommending this one. Enjoy ladies!
