For people with vulvas, there’s a whole host of ways to have a really good orgasm. One of the most beloved of the big O’s are ones coming from clitoral stimulation. This is for lots of reasons: the clitoris is a super sensitive area totally charged with erogenous energy (with thousands of nerves concentrated in that one intense spot).

As sex educator and relationship coach Dawn Serra previously told SheKnows, the clitoris is a “massive network of swollen, tingly pleasure” — it’s bigger than you might think (looking more like a four-legged animal than one spot), gets an erection of its own (similar to the penis) and the ways it receives/responds to pleasure evolves over time. And while you might have found your way around your own clitoris (or guided a few partners through the Dos and Don’ts), it’s totally normal for the clit to take a bit of time to reach full arousal. “Remember that it takes, on average, 20-25 minutes of stimulation and foreplay before a woman is fully aroused,” Serra says.

While there’s tons of toys on the market — ones that cater to penetration, to high tech bells and whistles or ones that are just unique and a little surprising —  sometimes you want to find a toy that’s really good at one thing. Whether you’re playing all by yourself (you are your safest sex buddy, after all) or with a partner, you’ll appreciate a toy that sends some sexy sensations where you need them most.

Whether you’re just starting your toy collection or looking for a new MVP toy, we’ve rounded up our favorites — ones that mimic oral (right down to the tongues) and ones that vibrate in low-key and high-key ways — that target the clit. Try a few of these out and you’ll level-up your cliteracy in no time.
