When it comes to vibrators, pricier doesn’t always mean better. Case in point: My favorite vibrator for years was Babeland’s Silver Bullet that I got for free when the store gave away vibrators to those who voted in the election. Talk about rocking the vote — I literally wore that baby out, and it retails for only $15. Had I purchased it, I would have definitely been able to say that I got my money’s worth and then some... and then even more than some. Yep, it's safe to say that I have an affinity for affordable sex toys. And, really, who doesn't, right?
Because as much as we all love vibrators, sometimes we just don’t have the cash to buy one of those $200 ones. Because, you know, rent and student loans and food and stuff. But you know what? That’s totally fine! The always sex-positive and convenient Babeland has the perfect vibrator for even those of you who don't have hundreds of dollars to drop. That way, you can get off without having to, well, get off your budget plan.
So, without further ado, here are the 10 best vibrators for under $50, because everyone should have the pleasure to get pleasured.
I mean, this is a favorite, so how can I not put it on the list? It’s small enough that you can bring it everywhere with you, if that’s your thing. And at $15, it’s an absolute bargain. Don’t be fooled by the size of the Babeland Silver Bullet ― that vibrator packs one hell of punch.
I have this one in my collection, too, because, well, of course I do. Similar to the Babeland Silver Bullet, it’s super discreet and slides perfectly into a stretchy cock ring, so both you and your partner can enjoy. While the Babeland Buzz Vibe is $12, if you get the Sonic Ring Set ― the vibrator and cock ring combo ― it’s only $20 total. So, basically, it’s a steal.
The best part about the Water Shimmer vibrator is that it makes for a great bath tub companion, because, true to its name, it’s waterproof. For only $22, the Water Shimmer, in all its beauty (seriously, it’s quite aesthetically pleasing), is exactly what every vibrator connoisseur needs. I mean, sure, you can use your shower head in the tub to get off, but isn’t something shimmery with varying levels of intensity what you really want? I’ll answer that for you: Yes.
I love Jimmyjane products. (So much that I still mourn the loss of one of my Jimmyjane vibrators... that was stolen from my apartment two years ago. Imagine that.) And the best part about the Jimmyjane Iconic Wand Petite is that it’s, obviously, petite. You can easily stash it in your bag to bring over to your partner’s for two-person play or bring it on home to mom and dad’s this Thanksgiving (because we all know you’re going to need to relieve some stress). Forty dollars and nine powerful patterns of vibration later, your clit will be thanking you.
If we learned anything of extreme importance from Sex and the City, it’s that the Rabbit Vibrator is crazy addictive. But if you can’t shell out the $90 for the Rabbit Habit Deluxe, you can still get in on the rabbit action with My First Rabbit Vibe. Though it doesn’t deliver quite the power of the Rabbit Habit, is does stimulate your clit and vagina for only $39. Then, when you get that holiday bonus, you can upgrade if you want.
While I’m not one for glitter when it comes to fashion, when it comes to a great vibrator, I’m totally game. So the Starlight Gems Vibe is totally up my alley. For $26, the Starlight Gem Vibe is ideal for both clitoral and vaginal stimulation at a light to moderate level of vibration. It’s a perfect vibrator for women who have ultra sensitive clits and can’t handle super powerful vibrations.
Coming in three different shapes, the Toyfriend Mini vibrator has the prefect curvature for clitoral and G-spot stimulation. Each one is a little different, but each one gets the job done for $29. You can choose the Mystic, which has an antennae-type tip, the Bunny, which, of course, has bunny ears on its end, or the Rebel, which is shaped to deliver the G-spot goods.
Another waterproof vibrator that’s small, powerful, and bath tub- or shower-ready. It may be on the small size, but don't let that fool you. The Waterdancer vibrator, at $30, is a powerful waterproof vibrator you can sneak into any of your favorite swimming holes (if you so dare).
Truth be told, I have never tried the I Rub My Duckie vibrator, but I have more than a few friends who give this $33 vibrator a whopping five stars. Even the reviews on Babeland's site are overwhelmingly positive, which obviously means I've been missing out. Not only is I Rub My Duckie waterproof, because that only makes sense, but it's so quiet that you can use it while taking a bath and your roommates won't suspect a thing. Not that it matters if they hear a faint buzzing, because they masturbate, too.
10. Blueberry Buzz
For starters, the Blueberry Buzz vibrator is pretty easy on the eyes. It's slick and its shape makes it look like an interesting work of art you picked up at an auction. But unlike a piece of art you got at an auction, the Blueberry Buzz is only $24, waterproof, and offers a variety of speeds for every person's needs.
Enjoy! And collect all 10! (At this price, you really could!)
