These Finger Vibrators Make Literally Every Sex Act Better
Put Pleasure At the Tip of Your Finger
Finger-banging. Clit stimulation during penetrative play. Masturbating. Nipple tweaking/squeezing/teasing. All these things? Fantastic. Also all these things: made better with the addition of a finger vibrator.
"Finger vibrators are great because they add a vibrating component to the sexual and sensual activities you're already doing with your hands and fingers," says Jill McDevitt, Ph.D., sex educator with sex toy company CalExotics. "They can be a seamless and hot addiction to masturbation or partnered play," she says.
Finger vibes come in many shapes, sizes, and intensities. Some sit on your tip like a thimble, some cover your whole finger like a finger-condom, some are literally rings (!), and others nestle between your digits like a thong between butt cheeks. What they all have in common though, according to Dr. McDevitt, is that "they're intuitive and enhance all types of touch." Check out eight of the best finger vibrators below.
Mini Marvels Tease
This vibe may look like a weird cartoon leaf, but "it has an innovative design that allows it to fit between your index and middle fingers, which is actually how a lot of folks with vulvas masturbate when stimulating their clit," says Dr. McDevitt. The part that goes against your body is smooth and flat, allowing the toy to provide friction-free vibrations while you rub yourself.
Her recommendation? Add a drop of water-based lube, then start at the lowest intensity level and increase intensity as you get more and more turned on. "Do that and you'll level up your fingering game by 10-fold." (Did you know silicone-based lube degrades silicone toys? Learn more about lube with this guide).
Palma Vibrator Ring
If you follow any sex-positive educators on Instagram, chances are you've heard of this ring-meets-vibe. Made by Unbound, a queer and women-owned and operated sexual health brand, Palma is a social feed fave.
Size stats: About the height of an air pods case and half the width, this statement piece can be worn so its parallel with your digits or twisted around so that its perpendicular.
Made of medical-grade stainless steel, this baby is waterproof, so feel free to enjoy this fashion piece's three speeds in the shower, too. (Related: 10 Waterproof Vibrators for Solo or Partnered Sex)
Folks looking for a finger vibe to use with a partner, order up! This silky-smooth (silicone!) and innocent-looking diddy fits perfectly between two fingers and is a great way to add clitoral stimulation to partnered play.
"Unlike most finger vibrators, Fin is worn between the fingers, so it fits hands of all sizes," explains Alexandra Fine, CEO of Dame Products, the company that makes Fin. It also features a removable tether that you can slip on your fingers for boosted security. "The Fin can be worn at the tips of the fingers, the base of the palm or even on the backside of the fingers," she says. Hello, versatility!!
Hot Octopuss DigiT
The 3.5-inch DiGit slides onto one of your fingers and has five rumbly vibration patterns and six levels of power, which span from low to moderate intensity. So, while it's probably not the best pick for folks who need the intensity of a wand-style vibe to get off, it's powerful as far as finger vibrators go.
IMHO: This toy is an amazing addition to hand sex—especially if your partner uses it to trace your thighs and inner and outer labia before stroking your clit. But because it's one of the larger toys on the list, I don't think it's the best as an add-on to penetrative intercourse.
G-Spot Finger Vibrator
This vibrator slips over your entire finger like a sexy finger glove. But what sets this vibe apart is that, with its naturally curved shape for G-spot play and textured tip for clit stimulation, this vibrator is perfect for folks who are Team Double Pleasure. It has nine vibration patterns that you control from a lil remote control.
BTW: This baby is an Amazon best seller. One customer says, "I highly recommend it to expand your playground and to spice up a little your foreplay." Another writes, "It's a mind-blower." And a third credits this babe for her first orgasm. Pretty impressive for a vibrator that's under 30 bucks, right?! (Related: The Best Sex Toys On Amazon for Women).
Okay, okay, so this isn't a finger vibe… it's a cock ring. But hear me out. I'm a person who sleeps with other vulva-owners, so when I use the Tor 2 , I slip it around two of my fingers and use it against a partner's clit during manual play. Trust, I've gotten G-O-O-D feedback on its six different vibration options.
True: This lil guy is on the pricier side. But because it's a cock ring, you can also use it like a classic cock ring during P-in-V or strap-on sex. Hello, two-for-one! (Want to learn more about strap-on sex? Check out our guide to sleeping with another woman).
Bunny Finger Vibe
This finger vibe is basically a deconstructed rabbit vibrator. Let me explain: Unlike classic rabbit vibrators which feature an insertable shaft for penetrative-pleasure and flickering bunny ears for clitoral stimulation, this baby is alll ears. (Related: The Best Rabbit Vibrators for a Next-Level Orgasm)
Start by flicking the Bunny on, then bring your hand between your legs to feel the ears fluttering against your clit at five different speeds. Try using it on yourself while performing oral on your bae, or while they enter you vaginally or anally from behind.
Shane Finger Banger
Full transparency: After watching The L Word, I have a soft spot for anyone or anything named, Shane. But (!) I'm truly obsessed with this finger vibrator for people who are just stepping foot into the wonderful world of sex toys.
For starters, it's under 11 bucks. If you try it once and hate it (hey, different strokes for different folks!), you've dropped no more than you would on a smoothie. Second, this vibe comes in two parts: a bullet vibe and a ravishly-ridged finger-sheath that the vibe can be inserted into. So you can use it as a finger vibrator or your can take the bullet vibe out and use it in a harness during pegging or strap-on play.
