Looking for a device to stimulate your (or your partners) clitoris, but aren't sure where to start? Read our guide and find the perfect clitoral stimulator.
When it comes to educating yourself about sex toys, there are a lot of terms you have to learn: internal versus external, clitoral versus g-spot stimulation, a-spot, the list goes on and on.
But for us, we're gung-ho about one term in particular: clitoral stimulation. This term means simply bringing yourself to orgasm by concentrating on the clitoris–that fairy Godorgan of orgasms.
What's so magical about the clitoris?
The clitoris appears to be a small 'button' or fleshy mound right above your urethra, and possibly under your clitoral hood (it can appear different for everyone). But no matter how or where it appears superficially on your vagina, what's important to understand is that the 'button' you're seeing is merely a small fraction of the total organ.
A clitoris extends throughout the pelvic region (imagine deep, spreading plant roots extending from it) with over 8,000 nerve endings connected to the small pea-shaped button that you're able to see.
Stimulating the clitoris is the most important first step to arousal, lubrication, and orgasm for women.
How to orgasm with a clit vibrator
1. Give yourself enough time and space for your solo (or paired) exploration
2. Start slow: circle around the area and use light pressure
3. Increase your intensity in response to your body–if you're in sync with your body (or your partner's body), you'll be able to tell when you need to apply direct pressure
The 10 Best Clitoral Stimulators: Your 2020 Clit Vibes Wishlist
We round up our favorite best sellers along with some lesser-known clit vibes to give you a list of the best.
Whatever you choose–always look for body-safe materials and whenever possible, invest in a rechargeable vibrator. Use the right kind of lube for the material of your vibrator, and wash your vibrator with the proper toy cleaner (for Limon it's plain old soap!) immediately after every use. Store your toys someplace clean until next use.
Discreet, quiet, adorable, and our very own–at the top of the list has to be the Minna Limon. Created to be ergonomic so that it can sit perfectly on your clitoris in any position, during solo or paired sex. Body-safe, with medical-grade, pthalathate-free silicone, and USB rechargeable. Our tart little fruit was developed after interviewing hundreds of women to find exactly what they needed in a vibrator.
The Limon has no buttons to fumble with, simply squeeze to increase its intensity (and your pleasure). Its motor is built to give you a satisfyingly deep, rumbly vibration, instead of the buzzy sensation of other vibrators.
The trendy suction vibrator is here to stay and the Womanizer Premium is one of the best selling, most well-known versions of it. Designed to feel like oral sex, a suction vibrator uses air pressure to vary the intensity and sensation against your clitoris. This brand takes it a step further with their hands-free 'auto-pilot mode' that creates an unpredictable, different experience every time you use it. Just like the real thing.
Another suction vibrator, this one by Lelo is a bit more high-end than the Womanizer. Instead of auto-pilot, they have 'cruise control,' a patented promise to reach an extra 20% more intense as one reaches orgasm.
The world's most (in)famous clit buster. This wand massager is the opposite of discreet, but it's well-known for bringing on intense orgasms. Probably the only clitoral vibrator on any bestsellers list that is plugged into a wall instead of being a rechargeable vibrator.
Both clitoral stimulator and g-spot vibrator, this bunny can do it all.
A pared-down, more discreet version of the rabbit vibrator–this one has the bunny ears for all the clitoral stimulation you might want, with less of a focus on g-spot stimulation. Its dual-motors mean that the bunny ears can vibrate at a different intensity and pattern than its shaft, making it versatile for your needs.
While it might look like a kitchen gadget, this silicone clit vibe will definitely
If you're a first-timer to the sex toy arena, this might be an intimidating choice. But will it feel incredible? Definitely.
This dainty finger vibrator is ideal for achieving clitoral stimulation during sex.
If you're looking for a luxurious sex toy present (or just want to treat yourself), check out this excellent set of versatile vibrator heads for Le Wand's wand massager. Similar to Hitachi's magic wand but USB rechargeable, this is quite the vibrator kit for anyone looking to explore different clitoral stimulation sensations and experiences.
