Sex toys have been around for decades, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that they finally had their time in the spotlight. In fact, researchers found that sex toys made the list of “panic purchases” during the pandemic—right next to toilet paper, canned goods, and hand sanitizer. As a longtime fan of vibrators, this was not surprising to me.
Thankfully, the taboo surrounding sex toys has dwindled quite rapidly since then. Now, you can even find sex toy reviews in practically any wellness space—because let’s be honest, if the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that a satisfying orgasm is just as important for our health as our matcha in the morning.
With that in mind, there are hundreds of options on the market now that sound especially promising except for the fact that so many of them cost more than our monthly student loan payment. Because we know that not everyone can swing that *raises hand* and that everyone deserves to orgasm, we’re sharing a list of seven affordable vibrators under $40 for you to check out so you can enjoy as many orgasms as you want without having to sacrifice your favorite iced latte in the morning or your monthly HBO subscription.
This toy was designed to mimic receiving oral sex, and with six different intensity settings for clitoral stimulation, you might even like it better than the real thing. The small size and waterproof design are nice benefits, but the best part is that it has a powerful but quiet motor. Its $35 price tag is hard to beat, and there is ultimately nothing more satisfying than pleasure on a budget.
I think everyone can benefit from a cute vibrator bullet in their toy collection, especially if they’re new to using sex toys. What’s fun about the Gaia Eco Bullet is that not only is it small and easy to take anywhere, but it’s also quiet, totally waterproof, made with eco-friendly plastic, and is essentially the price of an avocado toast.
Because this is basically two sex toys in one, it’s hard to believe that it’s under $30. The Bionic Vibrating Cock Ring can wrap around the shaft and balls, which is already a step up from a standard cock ring. It also has a bullet attachment at the top of the ring, which gives off two different intensities and three vibrating combinations. This means that both the person wearing the ring and their partner benefit from these good vibes. The coolest part, in my opinion, is that the bullet vibrator can actually detach from the cock ring and instantly be used as another vibrator.
It’s really nice to find a wand massager at a more affordable price, especially if you’re new to using sex toys. This one comes with six different vibration intensities and four combinations to choose from and is fully rechargeable. This massager is also super quiet, which is a benefit for those of us who want to enjoy ourselves without our roommates knowing.
The Teazer Butt Plug is great for beginners because of its size and its price. If you’ve been curious about using a butt plug but aren’t quite sure, this is the perfect one to start with. For one, it’s smaller and more narrow than most other plugs, so you can ease into this type of experience without a ton of anxiety. And the fact that it only costs $27 allows you to try out the idea of anal play without investing a ton of money in case it ends up not being your thing.
A good rabbit is hard to find—or at least one that is affordable, trustworthy, and pleasurable at the same time. Thankfully, the Phanxy G-Spot Rabbit fits the bill at under $40. This dildo vibrator comes with nine different vibrating intensities and combinations as well as silicone bunny ears for clitoral stimulation. This is one my personal favorites for affordable vibrators because it’s so versatile and can really meet whatever unique need you have at the moment, whether you’re alone or with someone else.
If you’re looking for something simple, inexpensive, and discreet that still gets the job done, add this to your cart. This vibrating egg is just under $20, which is a steal considering you can use it externally and internally and alone or with a partner. Its remote control allows you (or your partner) to easily adjust the intensity for versatile and hands-free pleasure.
