Part of the perks of working for Penthouse means I get to play with a lot of sex toys. A lot. I reckon I probably even handle sex toys more than a pornstar. From vibrators of every size and shape imaginable to blow up dolls and twerking ass masturbators, I literally get paid to rate my orgasm and see how many ways I can fuck a thing. Throughout 2018, hundreds of dildos, buttplugs, vibrators, couples toys and toys for the boys have come across my desk.
A good portion of these toys have been vibrating wands – and for good reason.
While vibrating wands are obviously a clitoris’ best friend, they’re also an excellent addition to a couple's toy box for the following reasons:
1. THEY SAVE YOU WORK
I’m not suggesting you slack off in the bedroom, but a wand can add a certain type of stimulation no hand, tongue or cock can replicate. Unlike palm-sized or small vibrations, the length of wands makes them easy to add additional stimulation in various positions.
Vibrating wands are practically made for edging! If you don’t know what edging, or orgasm control, is it’s basically bringing someone to the edge of orgasm and then stopping… then repeating it. It’s the ultimate tease, and when you’re finally able to climax, it makes the orgasm heaps stronger.
3. THEY’RE VERSATILE
A vibrating wand is the most versatile toy you can buy. They can deliver powerful vibrations to external hot spots like the clitoris, penis or balls. You can buy attachments to add to them so the vibrations can be delivered internally (hello G-spot). You can also slather them in lotion and use them to deliver a delicious massage to your partner's shoulders, thighs, bum and calves to relieve aches and pains.
Here’s are four of the best vibrating wands that have passed through Penthouse this year.
1. SMALL BUT FIERCE
BODYWAND USB RECHARGEABLE MASSAGER
At a wee six inches long with a diameter of one inch, this mini bodywand is small but fierce. Size isn’t everything, though, and this Bodywand certainly does what it says on the box. Despite its size, the wand does have a bit of power behind it. Its small size makes it perfect for travelling and more discreet while using it during sex. Some of the larger vibrating wands on the market are heavy, loud and can make you feel like you’re having a threesome with heavy machinery. This bodywand, on the other hand, is quiet, cordless and controlled via a dial with one finger.

2. DEEP VIBRATIONS IN A SMALL PACKAGE
NALONE ROCK MASSAGER
Nalone vibrators don’t have a reputation for deep vibrations, but the Rock totally… rocks. A medium-sized vibrator, the Nalone Rock is big enough to be powerful but small enough to be both manoeuvrable during sex and portable for travel. You get the power you crave with a wand, without the bulk and weight. It’s a win-win. Unlike larger wands, the Nalone is slender enough to provide more localised sensations. The toy features seven modes of intense vibration through its silicone head, guaranteed to caress her sweet spots. The Nalone is 100 percent waterproof, hypoallergenic, USB rechargeable and comes with its own storage bag.

3. THE ALL-ROUNDER
RANDY POWER MASSAGING WAND
The Randy Power Wand may look like a giant purple sperm, but it's being heralded as one of the most powerful vibrating wands on the sex toy market. While it’s powerful, it’s not RIP-your-clitoris strong. It’s stronger than a tickle and not as intense as some of those wands that feel more like jackhammers than sex toys. The Power Wand has a soft and velvety silicone body with ergonomic curves and contours, giving it a nice feel when you’re gripping it between your legs. It's cordless, USB-rechargeable and has 20 different vibration massage patterns. While it’s a great toy for using solo, wands can also make sex hotter. As we know, most women need clitoral stimulation (rather than just penetration) to actually orgasm. So unless you have a two-pronged cock with a built-in vibrator, penetration alone probably won’t be enough to get her over the finish line.

4. THE BIG BITCH
LE WAND RECHARGEABLE MASSAGER
When I saw the internet going gaga for the Le Wand massager, I knew I had to try it. Health.com praised Le Wand as one of the best sex toys for solo masturbation, and it won Men’s Health’s approval for Best Sex Toy for Couples. I must say… the Le Wand is a beast and she’s worth every penny. First, there was the infamous Hitachi Magic Wand – fantastic but only had a high or low vibration setting… then there was the Doxy – more control over power than the Hitachi but required a power cord at all times… now there is the Le Wand – fully customisable power and a power cord only required to charge it up when you’re done. From its deliciously deep and rumbly 20 vibration patterns to its flexible neck, The Le Wand is a versatile, super-power packed, easy to hold wand. Because of the power packed into it and its size, it does run on the heavy side. Bigger is better in my books but if the size puts you off, you can get the Le Wand’s little sister – the Le Wand Petite.
