Vibrators can be a lot of fun. Sometimes I just wish I could bring one with me anywhere. BUT WAIT! We have the technology! I CAN wear a vibrator wherever I want!
What’s more is that I can also hand over the controls to someone else and let them watch from a safe distance as I give myself over to pleasure, or furiously resist it. In fact, I can give the controls to someone across the globe and not even leave the safety of my own apartment. That means you can totally have covid-safe sexperiences that are still plenty pleasurable, even while in quarantine!
I tested out comparable panty vibrators from OhMiBod!, Lovense and We-Vibe and learned so much about them all. Honestly, all of these toys are incredible and I highly recommend mixing and matching combinations of them for some really mind-blowing experiences ( I’m looking at you Ferri & Lush combo ).
Here’s the inside scoop that may just….shake you up…. *wink wink*
Also, make sure to see our guide on what lubes to use as well as how to clean your toys to avoid any complications.
With that being said, here’s our top 6 list of best panty vibes, not necessarily from worst to best, because everyone’s needs and budgets are different.
Club Vibe 3.0H
This vibe was pretty fun and discreet.
It has a multitude of vibration settings, none of which varies in intensity though, so you have to be ok with a decently strong vibration that doesn’t increase or decrease.
The patterns are pretty great. There are a couple of speeds of pulses, a solid buzz, and a couple of varied patterns. You can also manually deliver vibrations with a button that vibrates as long or as short as you hold it.
But the star feature of this vibe is that it buzzes in response to ambient sound.
Theoretically, it buzzes to the music, hence the name, but I didn’t find this to work how I expected it to. I didn’t notice it picking out clear beats, but it does stop when the music cuts out, so if you’re at a live show, you don’t have to worry about buzzing between songs.
The remote has some holes that let sound in, so a really fun way to use this is to talk directly into the remote. It’ll buzz with every word uttered and you can literally get off to the sound of someone’s voice! The vibrations are on the buzzy end and you definitely need the panties to hold it in place (don’t lose your panties!), but the remote never lose connection so long as you’re within 20 ft of each other, which is a huge plus!
I would’ve liked a bit more control over the power of the vibrations and maybe some more accurate music syncing but all things considered, it’s a fun vibe for a playful night out in a loud venue together.
OhMiBod Esca 2
No need for underwear! Esca 2 is great if you want some rumbly g-spot stimulation commando-style. So if you like the idea of vibrating panties, but you’re not too into underwear in general, this is it!
It’s Bluetooth app-enabled, so even though you can control it directly from the toy, it’s worthwhile using the app for added features.
One of the added features is a club vibe setting that vibrates to ambient sound. All of the toys in this article had this as a feature in one way or another, but I found that the Esca 2 had the most accurate music syncing.
Bluetooth signal doesn’t go through bodies though, so if you’re prone to closing your legs tightly when you get excited, you’re likely to experience connectivity issues. I also found that connecting to the OhMiBod! app was pretty touch-and-go, especially since I often got distracted by other apps on my phone.
Once I lost connection, it really didn’t want to connect again and I’m still not sure why. This app had really awesome features, so it’s worth giving it a shot, but if it’s not working for you, the Feel Connect app is a more reliable option.
The Esca 2 is powered by KIIROO, so if you’ve got other KIIROO toys, you can sync up with your partner at any distance using the Feel Connect app.
You can also call each other while playing. You can turn your camera and microphone on or off, or if those options are a bit too much vulnerability at the moment, you can also send text messages.
I must say, overall, this is a great budget g-spot panty vibe!
Lovense Lush 3
The Lush is Lovense’s g-spot vibrator, so much of the same benefits of the Esca 2 are what makes the Lush a great time, but there’s a noticeable step up in quality. The silicone feels more luxurious and the tail has more of a curve to it which makes it a lot easier to wear with underwear. This also makes it easier to combine with a clit vibrator.
Though you could use whichever clit vibrator you fancy to pair with the Lush, I highly recommend using it with the Ferri.
The app makes dual control simple and fun and partner play has a lot of options to allow for you to set your own level of risk or boundary-setting. Just watch out for accidentally pinching your bits between the tail of the lush and the Ferri.
The vibes are a bit rumblier than the Esca 2 and once it’s in place, it’s very comfortable.
I didn’t get the same connectivity issues with the Lush that I had with the Esca 2 either, so the step up in price is definitely worthwhile if it fits your budget. But be careful with the intensity! I found that it was so powerful that at the top intensity that it got past being fun for me. Fortunately, it goes quite low as well, especially if you’re controlling it with the app!
It’s also super powerful so if you need a mean vibe it doesn’t get much better than this.
I LOVE this vibe!
This ended up being my favorite toy, though to be fair, I didn’t get to try the Moxie first-hand ( there was a bit of a mix-up with the toys we were sent! ) and that may be even more fun for me.
According to my editor, the Ferri is a touch buzzier than the Moxie while being a touch stronger on the higher levels as well. He must be right because this has the highest external vibration intensity of all the vibes I tested!
The design, originally pioneered by the Moxie, is highly effective for clit stimulation on-the-go thanks to its powerful magnet keeping it in place ( the magnet sits outside your underwear steadily holding the toy inside ).
The Lovense app was also the most fun to use with the best connectivity.
Once more, my editor tells me Lovense has the best, most reliable app in the game and it isn’t hard to believe.
I still lost connectivity every time I closed my legs, which was a lot, but it reconnected quickly and automatically once my body was no longer in the way. I found I could also easily wear it on stand-by mode for hours without really noticing it too much and I could send a link to my partner to gain control over it whenever he wanted to give me a surprise.
The vibrations are a bit rumblier than the Club Vibe and there’s a lot more of an intensity range, especially while using the app.
I might have needed a bit more intensity if I wanted a truly hands-free orgasm, but added pressure with my fingers was more than enough to get the intensity I craved. One suggestion I have for the next incarnation would be to swap the positioning of the button and the charging sensor for increased ease of use during manual control.
Plus, being Lovense, it has some of the best connectivity and app controls in the business!
Before the Ferri came around and more or less copied its design, the Moxie was THE panty clit vibe, and I’m sure for many it still is. Wireless, hands-free, and magnetically held in place with any underwear, it was truly a pioneer in this category of toy.
It basically made vibrating panties obsolete, since this converts any piece of lingerie into the best pair of vibrating panties in the business.
On top of app control, you also get a physical remote with it that offers a nice range of intensity.
So you have a lot more options for local play than either the Club Vibe or the Ferri. This is especially handy in the bedroom, where bringing your phone in can be more of a distraction than anything else.
The Moxie’s vibrations are impressive and rumbly.
At maximum strength, its vibrations are comparable to the We-Vibe Tango’s 3rd setting. So, if you liked the Ferri, but prefer a deeper rumble, the Moxie’s got you covered! Just know that while the rumbles are a touch better the Ferri still has a slight upper hand strength-wise. So it all comes down to power VS rumbles here, even if it’s subtle.
It also has more of a range in the lower intensity settings. Great for the more sensitive of us, and especially great for secret public play!
The app is fun and not too suspicious. It’s not obvious that you’re controlling a sex toy with it, which is quite helpful while out in public. I have heard that there were issues with the connectivity in the past that has since been fixed. But hey, you can always use the remote if the app ever gets in the way. Yay for backups!
I also love the fact that it comes with an optional remote controller for when you just want to ditch your phone and focus on the fun!
The Chorus feels luxurious. The packaging definitely adds to this feeling and the quality of the material does stand out.
It also comes with a charging case so if you’re confident no one will open the case, you can charge it out in the open and no one would know you were charging a sex toy. They might yell at it to try to get it to play music though!
The Chorus is seriously rumbly and some of the pre-fab patterns are divine.
I definitely blissed out on a park bench to the wave for about 15 minutes. The two motors can be controlled separately in the app, so if you like a certain pattern, but want more g spot rumbles and less clit stimulation, or vice versa, you can do that easily in the app.
The C design allows for both clit and G-spot stimulation in one toy, and its body is fully adjustable.
Even so, I found it a bit tricky to get the vibrations to go exactly where I wanted. While the adjustable body is meant to help with this, this is still a very common issue found in most dual toys since there isn’t a set of bits that are exactly built the same.
The smaller internal part allows for easy insertion and is meant to be used with a penetrative partner, or you can double up on the internal toys. For this reason, it isn’t the best vibe to walk around town with on its own because it will likely fall out of you eventually ( though very tight underwear might remedy this ). But if you do go out with it, it’s pretty quiet and I found that just the ambient sound of a city was enough to drown out the sound.
The internal part has a flat angle and a wide angle. This makes it a lot easier to put it in place, but a lot harder to keep it there. On my body, it was prone to twisting, so you might need to adjust it periodically.
I love that the remote responds to how hard you squeeze it!
Finally, a toy that adjusts to how we fuck, rather than us adjusting ourselves to a toy. I also didn’t have any connectivity issues whatsoever. Once you’re paired, you’re paired, and the connection won’t be dropped until you run out of juice.
While the adjustable body goes a long way to make it fit with all kinds of anatomies, this doesn’t mean that’ll it’ll match every variation there is under the sun. If that worries you and you don’t mind ditching the option of using the Chorus during PIV sex and the sweet squeezable remote, another great dual alternative would be the Ferri & Lush combo!
So, the best toy(s) for you will depend on what you want to do.
For a low-tech, no fuss, simple toy, the Club Vibe is a lot of fun, had zero connectivity issues, and won’t break the bank. OhMiBod’s passion for music syncing paired with your phone’s capabilities to pick out a beat has made the Esca 2 a great music-syncing love machine you can share with your KIIROO-enabled partner(s).
The Lovense toys are the clear winners for long-distance partner play, especially if you need to place limitations on your partner’s control.
Finally, for high-end, deep rumbles with a lot of options, We-Vibe’s got you covered!
A Note on Public Play
As much as the risk involved in public play is absolutely thrilling, keep in mind that the general public has not consented to be a part of your scene.
If you can’t COMPLETELY hide what’s going on, keep a decent distance from actual people and it’s a good idea to limit your public play to places where sexy things are likely to be going on anyways like bars and clubs.
As with anything, think about it before you give it a try and do your best to limit and reduce harm. You don’t want to ruin someone else’s day trying to make yours. All of these toys can be SUPER fun from the privacy of your own home. And if done with a certain amount of caution and respect for your fellow human beings, getting a surprise delight while you’re out and about is just divine!
We would like to thank We-Vibe, Lovense & OhMiBod for sending us the panty vibes & wearable vibrators included in this review. This roundup wouldn’t have been possible without their help!
