Body Massager Buyer's Guide

 

Which is the Best Body Massager?

A tough question to answer. Perhaps you should ask yourself "Which body massager would best suit my needs?" We are all different and as individuals, our experiences with pleasure differ greatly. Take a look below at the details we have put together for you. The decision can be difficult so read the information and consider your options before making a choice.

If pushed to name our most popular and greatly favoured massager, it would have to be the LELO Smart Wand. It is the most luxurious, high quality, powerful and clever device there is, and you will find the LELO’s SenseTouch Technology hard to beat. Once activated this feature starts the vibrations gradually, building to a natural and ultimately relaxing climax. As soon as the tip of the wand breaks contact with your skin, it stops. Not that you will ever want it to end so bear in mind that the rechargeable battery will last for a good two hours.

Here is a detailed description of the top 5 best-selling body massagers in Australia:

Lelo Smart Wand

When fully charged, you can expect two hours of relaxation and pleasure from this best-selling body massager. Ideal for relieving all-over body tension with no power cords dragging around and catching on things. A truly travel anywhere, use anywhere, body massager.

LELO has incorporated eight contrasting vibration patterns in their revolutionary programme. You can scroll through until you find the rhythm you feel most comfortable with until you decide it is time to change tempo and get the job done. Alternatively, there is the genius SenseTouch option, activated when you hold the centre button down for three seconds. This innovative technology powers the vibrations to intensify on contact with your body, gradually building the longer you hold it in place. The reasoning behind the technology is a design to provide a professional massage, gradually and ultimately building to climax. Despite being the most powerful cordless massager you can buy, it is whisper quiet.

The device will remember the last setting you chose to rest on, so once you find your preference, you will not have to spend time finding it again next time around.

Being a completely waterproof product, you can take it in the bath, hot tub or shower. It is also much easier to clean because you are not dealing with any electrical cords.

It is one of the more expensive massagers available, but you will be making an investment when you buy the LELO Smart Wand. You will very quickly become accustomed to an incredibly high level of power along with a luxurious body safe silicone encasing the hardware of the wand. Consider too that you will experience the benefit of the LELO ground-breaking SenseTouch Technology at your fingertips.

Bmine Classic Curve

This reliable little pocket-rocket has so much going for it. As one of the more affordable massagers on the market, it is small enough to pop in your bag and take with you for adventures outside the bedroom. It’s got a range of features that make it stand out among other similar sized products. The standout feature is the tapered tip, which has been designed to accurately target sensitive areas such as the clitoris, nipples, perineum and head of the penis.

The ABS plastic finish has a PU coating, giving it a smooth finish that’s made even silkier when you add some water or silicone-based lube. At just 8.7cm long with a 2cm girth the Bmine Classic Curve comes with 5 different functions: choose from three sustained, steady levels of vibration or two levels of intense, escalating patterns. It’s user-friendly with the control button underneath, and an LED light around the buttons makes it’s easy to use in the dark. Take it into the shower or tub, but just make sure the battery cap is screwed on tightly. It comes with a battery so you can get started right away.

Bsoft Premium

There is no wrong way to use this uniquely shaped vibrator. Sure, there are other leaf-shaped products of interest in the marketplace but will they have all the features that this little beauty has? The short answer to that question is no! The Bsoft Premium has some great stand-out features that you do not want to miss. For example, there is a concave top and a ridge in the middle that sits securely between the labia. It has been created to nestle snugly against the clitoris and vulva and is so compact that you can even wear it inside your panties when you go out. Ideal for solo entertainment and equally as good for using with a partner. Remember to close the flap on the rechargeable socket before you use the toy. It is impressive with seven diverse settings, ranging from a low, steady rumble to varying degrees of pulsing arrangements.

Because of the smooth angles you can experiment using all the different sections and angles - for example, there is a hard ridge that is ideal for targeting specific areas like the clitoris and nipples. And the velvety smooth texture makes it perfect for teasing your partner and building gently to orgasm. It is quite a noisy vibe, but you will possibly overlook this when you add up all the positives. Phthalate-free, hypoallergenic and waterproof, but we would not recommend submerging it in water as there is a risk of the charging socket getting wet. You could take it in the shower, though. The silicone material grants an easy clean process in warm, soapy water, and we recommend you only use a water-based lube with it.

Embrace Body Wand

An independently controlled motor in each end delivers the best of both worlds with the Embrace Body Wand. Powerful vibrations from the broad head as well as targeted stimulation from the tapered handle. Use the head of the wand for stimulating the clitoris, then turn it over and use the handle for more precise stimulation and shallow penetration. You can activate both ends at the same time, or use them independently. Each end presents seven vibrating, pulsating and escalating settings to choose from, so it is almost like getting two products for the price of one! There are just two buttons - the top one activates the wand, and the bottom one is for the pinpoint handle. You simply press each button once to activate, then press again to cycle through the vibrations and simply hold for three seconds to turn it off.

We love that this wand recharges via a USB connector, (charging cord included), eliminating the need for batteries. Simply plug it into your laptop or use a smartphone wall charger. It is waterproof and is easy to clean after use with the usual warm, soapy water. The sleek silicone finish is of a high quality, with no drag and the whole wand is hypoallergenic, non-porous and free of latex and phthalates.

Lelo Nea

Not just a delight to use, the LELO Nea is a delight because it delivers. Discreetly packaged, encased in a white satin storage pouch with three trendy colours to choose from: Black, White and Deep Rose. The delicate, floral motif adds a feminine touch as the perfect gift for your special someone, - or simply as a treat for yourself. And we do mean "treat" because it is one of the more expensive products of its type on the market, but it is unique.

At just 7.6cm long, it has been designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. It looks quite similar to a computer mouse, albeit a very stylish one! The sleek, porcelain-like finish fashioned for maximum clitoral stimulation, will glide easily in, out and around your entire body. The tapered end allows you to pinpoint certain areas, and it is perfect for solitary play or use with a partner.

So discreet is the Nea that even the most powerful setting is extremely quiet. Much like a computer mouse, there are two buttons - a plus and a minus. Simply click the plus button to activate the vibrator, and keep clicking to ramp up the speed through five different settings, ending with intense pulsing. Press both buttons at the same time and hold for five seconds to lock your preferred setting in place and to make sure it does not turn on at an inappropriate moment. A full recharge takes approx two hours and you will be able to enjoy seven hours of fun on that single charge. It is not waterproof due to the charging port type and positioning, but the ABS plastic finish allows easy cleaning with a good quality antibacterial cleaner.

The Different Types of Body Massagers

If you have decided that what you want is a body massager, the next step to consider is the specific type you would benefit most from. Yep!, you got it! There is a fairly extensive range on the market to choose from. So, let’s have a look at the traditional wand massagers, travel-friendly palm massagers and add-on attachments for your existing massager.

Wand Massagers

Wand Massagers

It all started with the Hitachi Magic Wand. Way back in 1968, designed to relieve muscle tension, it rapidly rose to fame for delivering pleasure to women, men and couples all around the world. Nowadays, you can buy a range of similar wand massagers in all shapes, sizes, levels of intensity and differing grades in quality.

The idea behind the wand massager is that should mimic the feel of a hand, or the palm of the hand when operating. The additional benefit of the wand, of course, being that it vibrates at numerous levels of intensity to deliver benefits that a hand or palm could never achieve. From light, superficial vibrations to a deep, low rumbling range. You can apply firm pressure to areas like the clitoris, and stimulate sensitive areas like the nipples and rim of the anus or more particularly in men, the scrotum, head of the penis or perineum. In general, the head of the wand will be flexible and enjoy a variety of speeds with the vibrations. Attachments are available for some wands but not all, and so you need to check if they are available for the wand you wish to purchase as this could make a difference to your choice. Regardless of whether you want a full body massage to relieve muscle tensions in the back, shoulders, legs, feet or wherever, or you want a more intimate pleasure toy, the wand will deliver both.

You will find there is a variety of mains plug-in wands with a power lead attached, some rechargeable via USB and others via a plug-in to a household socket. There is also the battery type where you need to buy and replace batteries as and when they run out.

The bonus runs in favour of rechargeable simply because you need only to recharge after each use and not continually spend money on new batteries, but this will come down to personal preference. There is no power loss with a rechargeable type as they are fitted with more powerful batteries in the first place to ensure this does not occur.

Handheld massagers

Palm Massagers

In general smaller, more petite and delicate in appearance but just as effective at muscular tension relief. Usually sculpted to fit in the palm of your hand and perfect for taking out of the bedroom and slipping easily into your handbag or purse. Some are designed to fit so snugly against your clitoris that you can wear them inside your panties and nobody but you will know it is there.

A definite benefit in favour of the small massager is that there will be less noise, making them ideal if you want to be more discreet about your activities. Some have been designed to provide a soft, sensual vibration while others pack a real punch.

Body massagers with attachments

Optional Attachments & Addons

There are some attachments or add-ons available for wand massagers; You just need to make sure each product is compatible with your particular wand. The size and shape of the head on each wand massager vary greatly, and it’s important to get the right one for yours. Some attachments are interchangeable between brands; for example, if you have a Large LELO Smart Wand you can use Hitachi Magic Wand attachments.

If you are specifically looking for a device that you can purchase attachments for, the Medisil and Bodywand massagers on our site will certainly be you first stop. The most popular attachments are the g-spot and rabbit, but male masturbators, dildos, bumps, tongues, anal beads and fluttering attachments also prove to be of value for some customers. So, increase your level of variety and make the most of the one item you may already have, being a very versatile wand massager.

Mains powered vs battery powered

Regular-Battery vs Mains Powered

The original massagers were, and still are available with a mains lead attached to the bottom. You will need to be close to a regular household wall plug socket or have an extension lead handy to be able to use the wand. The restriction on the length of lead the manufacturers are allowed to fit imposes a 2mtr maximum. You will need to learn to work around the lead if it gets in your way. Having said this, you will benefit from the expertise that has been years in the making and never ceases to impress with its power and quality. A mains powered device will never be waterproof, but they are still very easy to clean.

Battery operated massagers, usually waterproof so that you can take them into the bath, shower, hot tub or swimming pool are becoming very popular. Cleaning is a breeze simply because you can get it wet, and soap and water do a great job, or if your preference is anti-bacterial cleaners, we have plenty to choose from here on the website. Take care to read the manufacturer instructions regarding cleaning because if your massager is water-resistant only, you cannot immerse it in water. Always ensure that the battery compartment is tightly sealed before taking it near water.

The rechargeable wands these days are generally via USB socket to plug into your computer or a USB adaptor plug for a mains socket on the wall. The younger generations of users seem to prefer this type of wand massager. Easy to pack, easy to transport, easy to use and with no loss in power or convenience, they make the perfect toy.

Things to Consider When Buying A Body Massager

Whether your first massager or an upgrade to replace an existing device, there are a few things you should consider before purchase. We have outlined quite a few points so far, but you may also wish to consider some of the points below. An informed decision is usually the better decision.

Materials/Compounds

Take a look at what the product is made from before buying. If you have an allergy to latex or rubber, it is essential that you do this. There are cheaper silicone items available, but products made from 100% best quality silicone will be more expensive. Less expensive devices could be manufactured using a cheaper composite material or even something like rubber jelly. You need to take extra precautions with these types of materials, as they are not always termed body-safe. Bear in mind that we would not sell them if we did not believe they were still a high enough quality to bring into your home and not everyone has allergy issues. If you clean your device thoroughly after each use and store them according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, you should have no problems at all.

  • Silicone - We highly recommend you look for a device made from silicone, because it is 100% body safe, hypoallergenic, non-toxic, non-porous, odourless, is not damaged by heat or hot water and is easy to clean. Silicone also has a silky smooth finish and is incredibly sturdy. Most importantly, silicone is free from phthalates; a controversial substance used to increase the flexibility of plastic and vinyl products but which has also been linked to a range of health issues, including cancer. It is important that you do not use a silicone-based lubricant with your silicone device as it can break down and damage the material.
  • Composites - If a product you buy is not labelled 100% silicone, then there is every chance it could be a composite of silicone and another material, such as PVC. These products will often be a lot softer and more flexible than a 100% silicone product, and will usually be cheaper. Something labelled as a silicone composite toy means it has to have at least 10% silicone in it, so always check the label before you buy.
  • Rubber - Jelly rubber is not considered to be a body safe material because it can contain substances like latex and phthalates, which are non-porous and can, therefore, become a breeding ground for bacteria. Rubber products will often be very squishy and soft (due to the addition of toxins) and priced at the cheaper end of the scale. They will probably have a slightly unpleasant odour, and so we highly recommend you always use a condom with a rubber device. They cannot be sterilised in boiling water, so you need to protect yourself from infection. You will also need to clean the device thoroughly after each use. Keep in mind that there are some jelly-like rubber materials on the market such as Elastomers, which are considered to be slightly safer. Although of a higher quality than jelly rubber they are hypoallergenic but still porous and so a condom is a must.
  • TPE - This stands for Thermo-Plastic Elastomer and is a blend of polymer rubber quite commonly found in massage devices. It is quite soft and flexible and comes in a mid-range price bracket. You can get porous and non-porous TPE massagers, but you should always choose non-porous where possible, being free of latex and phthalates and will not harbour any nasty surprises in bacteria. Do not confuse this with TPR, which stands for Thermo-Plastic Rubber, as this is not a body safe product.
Materials
body massager/vibrator sizes and shapes

Size & Shape

Get the ruler or tape measure out and find out how big your massager is before ordering. Some people can get quite a shock when it arrives in the mail! This is especially the case with a wand vibrator, as a large wand is exactly that - large. For example, the large sized LELO Smart Wand is 30.4cm long. Then again, you might prefer something more intimate like the Bsoft Premium, which is just 12cm long.

Body massagers come in all sorts of shapes to suit all sorts of people. Something the size of a wand massager might not be comfortable for people with small hands, or those who only require light levels of clitoral stimulation. Conversely, a palm massager might not offer the amount of power some women need i.e. women with a less sensitive clitoris. If you have small hands, you might not be able to change the vibration setting single-handedly, meaning you will have to interrupt your session to locate buttons and change settings. This tends not to be much of an issue once you are used to the vibrator, the location of the buttons and its power settings.

Speeds and Vibration Rhythms

When it comes to the speed and vibration rhythms of your body massager, the world is your oyster. By nature, a wand massager offers a deep, low, rumbling vibration designed to stimulate the clitoris. Some are designed with a curved end for pinpoint accuracy. If it is the intense power you want, then it is best to go with a mains powered device. The vibrations are much stronger due to the fact they’re receiving a direct source of power. Look for a user-friendly device, and one that you don’t have to think about too much during operation. There is nothing worse than missing out on an orgasm because you’ve accidentally pressed the wrong button and lowered the vibration setting.

We like massagers that offer a variety of rhythms, from a sustained vibration to a pulsing pattern. It might sound funny, but the tip of your nose is rather sensitive and, therefore, the ideal place to test out the vibration of a body massager before you start using it. If you touch it to the tip of your nose, you will get a good idea of how it will feel on your clitoris as they both tingle when touched.

Remember, the more powerful the motor, the more intense the vibration and this also affects how loud your device will be; something that many people ask about, as a loud massager can be off-putting. Others want to keep their playtime discrete. On the whole, a mains powered wand will probably be quite loud due to the size of the motor inside. So this is something you need to weigh up - power and sound. What is more important to you?

A product like the Bodywand Magic Wand comes with a scrolling wheel instead of buttons, which is a clever way to increase or decrease the vibrations in small (or fast!) increments. It also means you have no need to remember which button is plus and which is a minus.

speed of vibrations
Batteries vs rechargeable

Regular Batteries vs Rechargeable vs Mains Powered

There are pros and cons to choosing either a battery operated vibrator or one that is mains powered. It’s fair to say that you won’t get as much power from a battery-operated massager as you can from a mains powered one, so this is something to consider.

If you like to play in the bath, shower or swimming pool, then it is worth going with a battery operated device. These are generally waterproof, whereas a mains powered device will almost always become damaged if you dunk it in water. A product like the LELO Smart Wand Rechargeable Vibrator is both rechargeable AND waterproof, which is a testament to the innovative technology LELO is adopting.

Some massagers are not compatible with rechargeable batteries as they tend to be slightly larger than normal batteries and can become jammed in the battery compartment of the wands, so this means keeping a spare packet of regular batteries nearby at all times. Also, check whether your chosen device comes with batteries before you buy - not all them and it can be very frustrating to get home and realise you need to pop back out for batteries! The rechargeable wands are better for the environment for obvious reasons and your wallet. Those rechargeable via USB, which means you can plug them into your laptop or a smartphone wall charger, are a handy option, but you need to be careful not to get the charging port wet.

Trusted Brands

There are some brands out there that we will always recommend to our customers, based on our many years of experience. People will often remain loyal to one, or maybe two brands, and continue buying from within that product range for years to come. Others are open to options and trying new brands, particularly if they have previously had a negative experience. We highly recommend the following trusted brands: LELO and Medisil.

In our experience, these brands consistently produce high quality, long lasting devices and are continually pushing the boundaries of excellence.

Brands of body massager
The warranty of the vibrator might make a huge difference

Warranty

If the wand or body massager comes with a warranty, then this is to be strongly considered. After all, if the manufacturer offers a warranty of 12 months or longer, then they obviously stand behind their product and believe it will last. It is for this reason alone that we must also consider their product to be of higher quality than the brands that don't offer such warranties.

Regardless of how much you pay, your massager cannot last forever. So make sure the warranty is clearly set out and that you understand the terms.

Price

Having read this guide, you will know that as well as coming in a range of shapes, sizes, speeds and colours our massagers also vary in price. The good news is that there is something to suit every budget. Most purchases come down to the price, and we understand how important that is to many of our customers’ decision-making process. As a rule, the higher the price, the better the quality. Our more expensive devices will generally include a greater range of features, are made from more luxurious, safer materials and will last longer. That’s not to say that you can’t purchase something from the lower end of the price range and still be satisfied.

You need to take all the features you would like to experience from of your massager into consideration before buying, not just the price. In the end, you may consider it worthwhile paying a bit more for quality and inclusion of everything on your wishlist. Or, if just starting out then perhaps something cheaper will suit until you are ready to upgrade.

Always consider the price of the vibrator

Summary

Hopefully by now you have come to a decision, or you have got a list of features that you would like your body massager to have. Now comes the exciting part - shopping! Keep our guide handy and refer to it if you have got any questions along the way. Stick with something traditional, experiment with something new, or simply grab a new attachment to liven up your existing model. You have to please YOU and nobody else.
