There are tons of cheap vibrators out there, but cheap and inexpensive are two different things, especially when you’re looking for a powerful vibrator for a lower price tag. A powerful toy doesn’t have to break the bank. What should you be looking for in a vibrator, anyway? Start by figuring out what body part you want to stimulate to narrow down your search, then you want to make sure that your vibrator is comfortable for you, is relatively quiet, not too loud, has multi-speed vibrations, a variety of pulsation options, and is waterproof. If it’s rechargeable instead of battery-operated, it’s a major plus since rechargeable toys tend to last longer because they’re constructed as one piece.
While Spectrum Boutique purposely doesn’t carry toys made out of toxic materials, other stores might not have the same standards.
You should never compromise on the quality of your vibrator, even if you’re trying to stick to a tight budget. Why is that? While Spectrum Boutique purposely doesn’t carry toys made out of toxic materials, other stores might not have the same standards. Then you could purchase a potential safety hazard. Not only are some materials porous so they’ll hold onto bacteria, but lower quality electronics can short out. So looking for products with a warranty is always worth it.
There are tons of powerful options for vibrating external erogenous zones, like the clit, nipples, or stimulating under the head of a penis. With this style of toy, the main consideration is the size of the toy. Some folks prefer bullets because they’re a more pinpointed shape — they not only will focus on smaller areas but they tend to feel more intense since they’re focused on a smaller area. There are incredibly small and powerful toys like the Purity Bullet, Joie Bullet, OMG Bullet, and the Intense Compact bullet. Or if you love pinpoint vibration the Noje Quiver might be perfect for you. It is the most pinpoint style you can find, but with a longer handle and a nice strong motor.
Liking bullets doesn’t mean they have to be super small or pinpointed. There are longer styles so you have more of a handle to grab, and less pinpointed shapes like the Chiamo Bullet, VeDO Bam, VeDO Bam Mini, Blush Exposed Bullet, or the Realm Bullet, and the Svakom Daisy. Broader shapes will distribute the vibration and work on the shaft of a penis or more vulva stimulation, so toys like the VeDO Izzy are amazing because the curved shape will ergonomically work to curve around erogenous areas and still has a pinpoint nub if you like options. Even the VeDO Kitty is curved and ergonomic with two prongs that are made for teasing nipples or more pinpoint stimulation. The VeDO Yumi and Vivi have an easy to hold finger sleeve so it’ll be easy to hold onto and incorporate into couples play.
Wands, even mini wands, tend to be powerhouse toys in general. The FemmeFunn FFix mini wand is so powerful that putting batteries that aren’t strong enough into the toy won’t run its powerful motor. So make sure if you grab this toy you get strong batteries to support it. Or they have the same strong motor in a bullet shape. Strong wands that are truly mini are the Palm Power Mini, VeDO Winni Mini wand, Noje W1 Mini Wand, or Noje W3 Mini Wand with a curved more ergonomic handle. Or wands that will still have a decent length handle will be the Charmer Wand, Pillow Talk Cheeky, or the OMG Wand.
Cock rings are a great toy to incorporate into couples’ play, add to your favorite insertable toy to add more vibration or add external vibration by sliding it on the shaft of a dildo or g-spot vibe.
Sleeves and Rings
Cock rings are a great toy to incorporate into couples’ play, add to your favorite insertable toy to add more vibration or add external vibration by sliding it on the shaft of a dildo or g-spot vibe. The VeDO Roq is one of the rings with the strongest motor, it holds its own against more expensive models power-wise. If you prefer a more narrow design, the Tyler Ring is pretty powerful but slightly less intense than the Roq.
You might not immediately think of a suction toy when thinking of a powerful vibrator, but most folks who prefer stronger vibration also tend to enjoy suction toys. But who wants to spend so much on a sensation you’re not sure you’re going to love? Try the Romp Shine or Free. They’re both still rechargeable and affordable. If you’ve seen the viral Rose suction toy you can also give that a shot without breaking the bank. Feel free to google the many stellar reviews this cute little toy has received!
Powerful Internal Vibes
What makes these toys good for G-Spot is they’re curved to help get behind the pubic bone and easily access it, but it’s also important to note that they’re all missing any sort of base, so they’re not anal safe. These only work as a G-spot toy, or as an external toy with a longer handle.
Looking for dual stimulation, or want your internal toy to be anal safe?
Looking for dual stimulation, or want your internal toy to be anal safe? Rabbit-style toys can work either as a dual stimulator for the clit and g-spot together, or the external arm makes it anal safe. More specifically for the prostate and the taint on penis owners. The most powerful and affordable rabbit-style vibes would be the Harmony, VeDo Wild, and any of the OMG Rabbits.
Back Door Vibes
Plugs are great for backdoor warm-ups. They’re intended to get you warmed up for penetration, or add anal stimulation while you’re exploring other parts of your body. Typically the less expensive plugs don’t have a motor running through them, so they have a bullet through the base to transmit vibration through the toy. The Rocks-Off Petite Teazer Plug, Petite Smooth Plug, and Bubbles Plug come with a bullet that can easily be replaced with something like an OMG Bullet to make the vibration stronger. Want a thicker plug? These Blush Plugs are thicker and can also add a stronger bullet to intensify the toy. Or for a one-stop-shop for one strong plug that’s rechargeable, powerful, and still affordable is the VeDO Bump plug, which for a few dollars more you can also get a remote control version of.
If you’re looking for something more prostate-targeted the NYTC Curly Q, or the Rocks-Off O-Boy plug is ideal, because it’s curved and the bullet can be replaced to add a stronger bullet also. The Svakom Vick is a rechargeable option for the prostate that won’t break the bank. Or if you’re wanting more penetration practice, the Vixen Mistress has a space for a bullet, so you can add your bullet of choice and the shape is nice and smooth which is ideal for backdoor exploration.
Stimulating oils and gels are a simple way to make all sensations intensified.
Amp up all stimulation!
Stimulating oils and gels are a simple way to make all sensations intensified. They can be used on many different erogenous areas like the clit, nipples, or the head of the penis. What they do is they draw all the blood to the skin’s surface and make those areas more sensitive and tingly. All the following use all-natural ingredients to stimulate the body.
Water-based formulas are compatible with all toys and barriers and are slightly less intense because of the way they absorb into the skin. Water-based formulas would be Sliquid O gel, Intimate Earth Gentle or Intense gel, Wicked Awaken, or the Dame Arousal Serum. You can also try a lubricant like Sliquid Sizzle that contains menthol, so it’ll go on cool and heat up with friction.
Oil-based stimulating oils aren’t going to be safe with latex barriers, but they will tend to feel more intense because of the way oil absorbs into the skin. The Southern Butter Enhance is an all-natural way to amp things up and take them to the next level. Or use the Radiant Love Oil Based Warming lube for an immersive erotic experience.
Build your toy box!
It’s just nice to get to try a variety of different toys without breaking the bank. While there are plenty of people that one good vibrator is all they’ll ever need, I believe it’s better to have an arsenal of sex toys. Sometimes you want the reach of a wand vibrator, and other times a simple bullet will be what you’re in the mood for. And since no one sex toy can do it all, having more than one at your disposal means you’ll never have to miss out on the type of sensation you’re craving. And the good news is you don’t need to shell out hundred dollars to fill up your sex toy toolbox. There are plenty of strong vibes to please you and tease you on a budget.
