Let's consider for a moment the humble wand vibrator. The most famous example of this genre of sex toy is the Hitachi Magic Wand, which was introduced as a "personal massager" way back in 1968.

It was — and is — a highly effective device for easing shoulder knots, it's true. It also was and is very good at bringing people with clitorises to orgasm. It's the little black dress, if you will, of many a sex toy collection: a reliable classic that's right for pretty much any (masturbatory) occasion. And when a rechargeable version was introduced in 2014, Magic Wand devotees rejoiced that they no longer had to be tethered to the wall during solo sex sessions.

With their large motors, wands tend to vibrate at lower frequencies than many other toys, producing "rumbly" (or resonant) vibes as opposed to "buzzy" ones. (Buzzy vibrations are higher-frequency, and they can feel less satisfying and even numbing after a while. Not so sexy.) The Magic Wand may be the OG, but it's far from the only wand out there. If you've tried and loved it, you may be ready for your next wand — something even more intense or with more settings, perhaps, or maybe a smaller toy that you can even fit in your purse.

Never tried a wand? If you're looking for powerful external (read: clitoral) stimulation and aren't so worked up about whether or not you have something inside of you, this may be the toy for you. If you're looking to pair clit stimulation with the insertion of another toy or a penis, a wand may also be the toy for you. Ahead, seven of the best wand vibrators on the market right now, all conveniently shoppable from the privacy of your bedroom. Once you find one you like, you're about to spend a lot more time there.

From top to bottom: O-Wand ($199, o-wand.com) // Vibratex Mystic Wand ($55, amazon.com) // Le Wand Rechargeable Vibrating Massager ($170, lewandmassager.com)

First up is the O-Wand, which is advertised as "the most powerful, safe and stylish personal massager on the market today." First things first: This toy is heavy. It's like a club. A silicone, gold-embellished, cordless, rechargeable club. And it is indeed powerful, plus surprisingly quiet for how intense it is. It's not cheap, but power queens who enjoy serious stimulation will not be disappointed by this newcomer to the sex toy world.

The Vibratex Mystic Wand, on the other hand, may be the pick of choice for those who find the Hitachi Magic Wand and the O-Wand a little too big. The silicone has a velvety texture, and while this isn't rechargeable — it takes two AA batteries — it's likely petite enough to fit in your purse. It's also not as intense as either the O-Wand or the Magic Wand, which some folks may consider a good thing.

Back in Super Big Wand Land is Le Wand, an exciting toy for people who like to customize their play. It offers a whopping 10 vibration speeds and 20 vibration patterns, and you can also purchase silicone texture covers and attachments to slip on the head of the vibrator and essentially transform this into a different toy altogether.

From left to right: Doxy Massager ($139.99, amazon.com) // California Exotics Key Comet II Rechargeable G-Spot Wand ($49.65, amazon.com) // Lelo Smart Wand ($199, lelo.com) // Hitachi Rechargeable Original Magic Wand ($90, amazon.com)

Next up is the plug-in Doxy wand, which has attracted a dedicated fan base with its deep, rumbly vibrations. It's durable and long-lasting, if a little loud. If you find that you like the feeling of the vibes but that they create some skin discomfort, try a dollop of high-quality, water-based lube. (While we're on the topic, lube can improve pretty much any kind of sex, partnered or solo, even if it doesn't seem like you "need" it.)

If you're not looking to drop serious cash, check out the curvy Comet. Unlike most wands, this can be used for both internal and external stimulation: This rechargeable toy is shaped to target the sensitive, nerve-ending-rich front wall of your vagina (what some call the G-spot). (Like all of these picks, this toy is body-safe. That's a must with anything that interacts with your reproductive anatomy.)

Then there's the Smart Wand. It's a classy-looking toy that comes in ivory, black, and plum, and it's designed to deliver varying power without you having to fiddle with controls; as Lelo describes, the vibrations "build on contact with your body and the intensity increases naturally."

Because no wand roundup would be complete without it, the Magic Wand is still here for you, as it has been for nearly 50 years. Power just doesn't go out of style.
