When the subject of sex toys comes up, most people I’ve encountered automatically picture them only being used for solo activity. The truth is, there are some fantastic sex toys made for couples, but many don’t know where to start. Once you are past playing with the little finger tip vibes and cockrings you can pick up at the drug store, where do you go from there? This list of my 3 favorite couples vibrators is for you!
Far from being a sign that your love life is somehow lacking, using sex toys with your partner shows that you’re open to some fun and adventure. Many couples are looking to explore and try new things. This can be for a lot of reasons – you could be stuck in a rut, it could be a special occasion, you might be struggling to be intimate after life changes (postpartum, menopause, life events), or even just plain lazy (couples vibrators make getting off that much easier). I support all of these reasons and any other one you have for trying out a new toy! “Sex toys shouldn’t be considered a novelty item,” says certified sex educator Logan Levkoff, PhD. “There is something to be said for using an enhancement that ensures orgasm and pleasure for both parties” on a regular basis, she adds.

This darling little heart vibrator is a great first-timer couples vibrator. It has 10 speeds, is fully re-chargeable and very discreet. You can tuck it easily between yourself and a partner or hold it against your clitoris for gentle stimulation. This also makes a fantastic gift!
Unique Qualities: Heart-shaped and Discreet
My Rating: For the cost and simplicity? 7/10 His Rating: 5/10
Who I’d recommend it to: A beginner or someone looking for a simple vibrator.
I’m in love with this amazing little couples vibrator. The story of how Eva came to be has my heart as well (she’s crowd-funded and invented by women for women!). Eva is a small vibrating device that has “wings” that tuck under the labia so the vibrator can stay on top of the clitoris.
It is a brilliant design and an even more incredible orgasm!! Like, almost too incredible. It was a little tricky at first to get it placed just how I wanted, but after that it was smooth sailing. It easily switches positions with you and keeps clitoral stimulation happening. I’m really loving this little toy!
Unique Qualities: Hands-free
My Rating: 9/10 His Rating: 9/10
Who I’d recommend it to: Someone wanting a basic vibration with a not-so-basic application.
3. We-Vibe Sync
The We-Vibe Sync is an interesting toy and is currently ranked the number 1 vibrator for couples. It’s adjustable to fit and vibrates both internally and/or externally using a remote control to change the settings or an app. I love that the vibrations are separate, meaning you can turn off or turn up the inside or outside one, independent of each other. It’s one of the few vibrators that does a good job not only giving me vibrations, but him as well. With the app you can customize the vibration pattern and it can be controlled by someone far away – making it perfect for a long distance relationship.
You definitely want to use lube with this one and be turned on before placement. My absolute favorite is a pre-programmed setting called “tide”. The vibration ebbs and flows from the internal head to the external one like waves from the ocean and is not only very satisfying, but incredibly relaxing.
Speeds: 10, plus you can program unique vibration patterns on the app AND it will sync to music!
Unique Qualities: Adjustable shape and mostly hands-free
Waterproof: 100% waterproof so you can play anywhere.

Who I’d recommend it to: Someone looking for vibrations for both partners or a couple in a long-distance relationship
