Nothing kills a hot masturbation session like the fear of someone listening in and knowing exactly what you’re doing. Your main sex organ is the brain, after all, so feeling distracted with worry is a *total* mood killer. Luckily, whisper-quiet vibrators exist.
Plus, "having a vibrator that has a lower and quieter setting may be more arousing for individuals who want to put the vibrator directly on their clitoris versus above the nub, which can handle more stimulation," says Jordan Soper, an AASECT-certified sex therapist in Nevada.
It can also extend the time of your sex sesh. "Having a device with a lower vibration setting can elongate the pleasure experienced by making for a longer build-up of arousal and tension in the body versus a high vibration which, for some, may even be overstimulation," she adds.
Peep a few of the best quiet vibrators below:
On the flip side, a good rule of thumb is to avoid buying any toys that thrust or have beads that spin, recommends Soper, as the motors in those devices tend to be loud.
Whether you're traveling, dealing with roommates, noise-sensitive pets, or just don't want to hear the sound of a buzzing tool in between your legs, check out the 23 best quiet vibrators and sex toys below.
