Vibrators have come a long, long way from the OG Magic Wand, which plugged into the wall (!!) and looked more like a neck massager than a sex toy. Nowadays, you’ll find vibes of all shapes and sizes, including those you can take on the go, use in the shower, and even (*drum roll pls*) control with a remote. Yes, the future is here, and it is bright, friends. Remote-control vibrators are not only great for pinpointing the EXACT pattern and vibration setting you want—they’re also a lifesaver when it comes to ensuring you don’t need to fiddle with any buttons right on the brink of an orgasm. Plus, these toys mean you can add vibration and other sensations into the mix while keeping things as close to hands-free as possible.

Another bonus: If you’re looking to introduce new elements of teasing into your sex life, then you’ll love that many of these remote vibrators can be controlled from a distance so your partner can totally take the reins. Pretty neat, huh? Ya, it might be a few more years until Siri or Alexa (or both) can cycle through vibration patterns and speeds, but these remote-controlled sex toys will make masturbation way, WAY easier *and* introduce a whole new level of partner play.

How to choose the best remote-control vibrator

According to certified sexologist Gigi Engle, remote vibrators are great for taking control of your own experience during solo play, but what really makes ’em great is how they “allow you and your partner to control each other’s sensations.” As she explains, “You can tease your partner by controlling the speed, pattern, and vacillation of their toy, which is a little dom/sub and can make things really hot.”

And while app-controlled sex toys may be a bit more convenient (since you can access the remote from your phone and don’t have to worry about losing it), bringing a phone into le boudoir can sometimes kill the mood…which is what makes remote-operated toys so great. They’re also useful when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi or a reliable internet connection, which happens!

A few things to keep in mind when picking out your high-tech new toy:

Consider the material

When it comes to vibrators, the material matters, ’cause you def don’t want to irritate your most intimate areas with a poorly-made toy. It’s best to steer clear of vibes and remotes made with PVC, as those tend to be more porous and pretty much impossible to fully sanitize (not to mention they may contain toxic chemicals called phthalates). Instead, Engle suggests looking for toys “made from body-safe or medical-grade silicone,” which work great with water-based lubes.

Figure out the remote range

Unlike Bluetooth-enabled vibrators that can be controlled from any distance, vibrators with physical remotes can usually only be operated from so far. Make sure you look at the maximum distance allowed between the sex toy and remote before buying to see if it will suit whatever ~escapades~ you and your partner have in mind.

Check out the bonus features

As with all sex toys, the best remote vibrators tend to have a few key features: They’re fully waterproof (so you can use ’em in the tub or shower), they’re USB rechargeable, and they tend to have several different vibration patterns and strengths, ’cause variety is the spice of life. Likewise, it’s also helpful to look for a remote vibrator that’s enabled by both a physical remote *and* an app, so you don’t “wind up digging around your drawers looking for the remote,” as Engle points out.
