New pleasure level: unlocked.
Most standard sex toys (say, a bullet vibrator) require at least one hand to operate, leaving you inexplicably down one five-fingered tool for providing pleasure, exploring, and feeling—be that with a partner or yourself. Thankfully, hands-free vibrators and other sex toys (many of which are remote-controlled vibrators) exist to remedy that hang-up. That way, you have the ability to use both hands for whatever you—and potentially your partner—want.
A hands-free vibe can "add more excitement, variety, and positions to your sexual experiences," explains Jordan Rullo, Ph.D., a clinical health psychologist, sex therapist, and medical advisor at Flo. She especially recommends them for people with vulvas who prefer clitoral stimulation "but still enjoy simultaneous vaginal penetration." They’re also essential for people with mobility issues who may lack grip or hand strength, and they’re a nice toy to have on hand for those who feel like sex toys can be distracting while getting it on, Rullo adds.

A level-up of your sex life you didn't know was possible awaits. Keep scrolling for the best hands-free vibrators recommended by experts and reviewers.
This uniquely shaped toy is truly one-of-a-kind, which is what makes it our number one pick. It's a best-selling, wearable clitoral vibrator that hooks around labial lips and stays in place during penetrative sex. The idea is that you don't have to consistently worry about holding it in the sweet spot, so you can be in the moment and fully enjoy yourself. "I like it for alone time and to use with my husband," one reviewer raved. "Definitely a game changer!"
This dual-ended, dual-motored toy offers G-spot (internal) and clitoral (external) stimulation with rumbly vibration in its tail and tantalizing whispery suction in its head. Suction vibrators are ideal for those who are overstimulated by intense buzzing bullets, and with the remote, you or your partner can click through its settings and enjoy the ride. "If I had socks on it would have blew them right off," a satisfied customer wrote.
It's a best-seller for a reason. The Chorus is the ideal couple's vibrator for those who have penetrative sex. Worn in the vagina, it stimulates three erogenous zones at once: the G-spot, clitoris, and penis. The Chorus is app-compatible and can be controlled through your phone, but it also comes with a physical remote that's squeeze sensitive, meaning the harder you or your partner squeezes it, the more intense the vibrations get.
This is a wearable vibrator that comes with a magnet to secure it inside your underwear for hands-free and even mobile use. "This is great for masturbation, but also can be exciting to experience with a partner," says Megwyn White, director of education at Satisfyer. That's because partners have the option of controlling the vibration settings from the compatible Connect App.
This is a hands-free, wearable internal vibrator that "provides simultaneous stimulation to the G-spot and clitoris," explains White. Different from a wearable love egg, its "deep shaft offers a fuller sensation, while its hands-free design allows for greater freedom of movement," White adds. The toy can also be used externally (with hands, of course) to graze other erogenous zones from head to toe.
White says this toy is "great for hands-free anal play," adding: "Not only is this product super soft, but it also connects to Satisfyer's free app where one can control the different vibration settings to customize your pleasure experience." It even has two motors that can be controlled separately for a dynamic sensory ride.
Although bullet vibrators are great for targeted clitoral stimulation, their traditional slim, cylindrical shape can be difficult to grip and maneuver, which is a sure-fire way to throw off your mood. This ergonomic vibe is designed to rest comfortably on the vulva for hands-free play—or even for use during missionary—with a grippy stem that's there if you want to take the vibrations elsewhere.
Amir Marashi, M.D., board-certified cosmetic gynecologist, sexpert, and founder at Cerē recommends this wearable egg vibrator, which fits comfortably inside the vagina to deliver G-spot stimulation to anyone "seeking a secure and pleasurable encounter," he says. It's a best-seller for its quality and versatility, as it can also be used externally from head-to-toe, but that part would obviously require the use of your hands.
When worn at the base of the penis, the rumbly sensations delivered by this vibrating ring make erections stronger and last longer. The extended head targets the perineum for added buzz, plus, when worn during sex, your partner can feel the residual vibrations for extra pleasure. You can either push the manual button on the toy and go hands-free from there, or customize the pulses in the We-Vibe app.
This vibrating stroker delivers 360-degree contractions and vibrations to the penis without the need for any manual labor. The sensations can be adjusted in the Lovense app for solo play, and it can even can be paired with the Lovense Nora rabbit for a long-distance interactive couples moment.
Opt for one made of medical-grade silicone: "It will be the safest and easiest to clean," says Rullo.
Choose your player (stimulation): "Some hands-free vibrators provide only clitoral stimulation, others provide vaginal and clitoral stimulation simultaneously, and some are for penetration only," explains Rullo. Then there are anal vibrators and penis vibes, both of which come in hands-free varieties. Knowing your preferred stimulation method will help you choose the best hands-free sex toy for you.
Prioritize a wide vibration range with narrow noise: "A vibrator with a continuum of intensity, variability in speed (versus single or multi-speed like low-medium-high), and different types of vibration (pulsate, surge, escalate) will provide the greatest flexibility and exploration options," says Rullo. And nothing throws off a good time like a toy that's too loud, especially if you have room mates. "If privacy is important, consider how quiet or loud the vibrator is," Rullo adds.
There is no blanket set of directions for hands-free vibrators because there are so many different types, including those that are worn internally and externally, and toys that target different erogenous zones. However, in general, water-based lube is always a good idea.
"Other vibrators require you to hold them in place or move them around, but hands-free vibrators do not require this attention," explains White, which makes them perfect for anyone who wants to experiment with roaming touch or a more meditative, distraction-free masturbation practice that includes breath work, she adds.
Hands-free vibrators are also a great option for those with disabilities or limited mobility "that prevents them from feeling comfortable" with a hand-held toy, White says. And lastly, they’re an ideal option for couples who would like to explore each other more freely during sex, "as it can allow both partners to feel multiple sensations at once," White explains.
