Buying a vibrator should be no different from buying a small home appliance like a toaster, flat iron or vacuum cleaner.

There are many brands in the market and one brand can have several variants. The more expensive the appliance or vibrator, the more features it normally has. The lower-priced ones usually vibrate at a single speed, while the more expensive ones will have several speeds. Does this make a difference? Your call, ma’am, your call.

The high-priced vibrators also tend to be sturdier, so if you expect to use it often then the few extra bucks spent should be worth it.

If budget is not an issue – even the most expensive vibrators are still within reach for most women – go for the branded rather than generic model. Look for one that gives some kind of guarantee just to be sure. Remember that there can be lemons in even the best cars or electronic devices sold because they are manufactured in the tens or hundreds of thousands.

Manufacturers with a track record for quality should provide the best buys, although newcomers to the market will want to grab a slice of the pie by offering more in terms of price or features.

The majority of vibrators sold today are made in China, followed by Western European countries. The US, which introduced the vibrator to the market more than 100 years ago, takes up the tail end of the major vibrator makers.

Is there a best vibrator in the market? Not really. Just as there is no single best car out there, it totally depends on what you want and how much you are willing to spend.

What we can say is that the best vibrator is the one that gives you the greatest pleasure. Take your pick!
