A Woolfer wrote in that her electric toothbrush had finally died after many years of faithful service, and she was in a sexual crisis … (we, too, had to read her post twice before we got it!). We rallied to her aid, of course, with loads of recommendations for a replacement. Here, our current top six favorite sex toys:

Womanizer Pro40

While IRL we Woolfers try to steer clear of womanizers, the WOMANIZER PRO40 is like one of those bad boys that is just too hard to resist, especially since its brilliant design uses suction in a way that can bring on a mind-boggling orgasm.


The no-frills, one-speed IROHA MINI MASSAGER is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and could easily pass as a tub of lip gloss. For the aesthete, we also recommend the elegant animal-inspired IROHA PLUS, which can hide in plain sight as a sculpture on your nightstand.

Hitachi Magic Wand

For many of us, the HITACHI MAGIC WAND was our first initiation to sex toys. A little clumsy and overeager perhaps, it is still as reliable as our first schoolyard sweetheart so many years later.


The EROSCILLATOR 2 PLUS is not going to win any beauty awards. But with four interchangeable oscillating heads and the imprimatur of Dr. Ruth, this may be a good vibe for the newbie.


If you want a vibrator that does double duty as a G-spot massager, we like the pretty in pink GIGI 2. It’s got curves in all the right places, and a flattened tip for heightened pleasure.

Vesper Vibrator Necklace

This one is a Woolfer favorite! It’s super effective and can be worn as an accessory at your next cocktail party.
