I have a few luxury vibes and no, price is NOT what you go buy. Not me anyways, ever. This is because I've bought very expensive "luxury" vibrators that well, to just be honest, sucked ass. For instance, Zini Deux. Worst luxury vibe ever! Great concept, cheap design, cheaper vibrations, hard material = useless. Even if the company would've spent a wee-bit more on the material and made it squishy silicone, that'd have made a huge difference, but they went the cheap route. In reality, Deux is a $40 quality vibrator, and I would not even pay that.

Now, I have had luxury vibrators that were worth it. For instance Vitality. That is the absolute best vibrator that I've had ever laid... cooter on? LOL. Seriously. I am actually even convinced that it does not get any better than that vibrator, and probably others from the line, but most of them were too large for me to use internally.

I love Vitality so much! I even used it tonight on our mini road trip and guess what? That sucker has been charged ONE time, which was when I first got it and I've used it so many times that I couldn't count. I used it for an hour alone tonight. From the time we left in the vehicle to the time we pulled into the driveway, and even about 3 minutes after we pulled in. It's the best vibrations I have ever felt. No toy gets me off quicker than Vitality. It's also best in terms of charge. Noa is a luxury vibrator and it will totally die on me in 25 minutes. Vitality has hours and hours before that ever happens.

I have some advice: if you have any specific preferences at all when it comes to toys, never rely on price tag. When they're categorized as "luxury" never assume they really are. Be careful.

For some reason, I see people who "love" every single luxury toy they get and review. They claim every luxury toy they own is "the best." I can't get much use out of reviews like that. I am a little more.. objective. Also, I am going to be picky if I'm spending more than $70 on it. I'm going to expect it to get me off and good!

Back to Noa. I love and hate that toy. It's beautiful. The silicone is the best I've used, even slightly better than Vitality. The toy is perfectly soft, flexible -- the design is just perfection for my body. But the vibrations and shitty battery life makes it not worth any more than $40 bucks to me. I hated that. So no, price tag does not mean better.

Oh thanks for this response. I'm already fairly picky on where and how I spend my money, so this extra information on luxury vibrators really helps me.

The "luxury" title did make me think that all must be good, but at the end of the day it's just a title.

Bottom line--it is the same as the cheaper vibes. Some will be amazing and will work for you---some you will wish you never laid eyes on.

Luxury is more in the material, motor and rechargeability. You have a one year warranty, cheaper ones you do not have any. (Eden does give you 60 days to return a defective item though!)

Luxury items also tend to have more creative and absolutely gorgeous and practical packaging. A bonus if you love the item--does not matter how pretty or functional if you hate it.

I have quite a few of them and have to admit the motor life is usually much greater than the cheaper. It is also nice not to have to rotate stores for $50-75 worth of batteries every week!

I don't own a luxury vibe yet, but I have a few high-end dildos. I've got the Pure Wand and Fun Factory's Share.

I'm saving up to get the Ina 2, but I think that's the only luxury vibe on my list. The rest are dildos.

I wait till it's on sale and has free shipping. I sometimes wait till I can get multiple deals at the same time and just build a dream cart of shopping heaven. Like when the Facebook specials are something I want, you can bundle that plus the free item that comes with every order plus your item on sale plus points. Then it's most likely free shipping by then. Or just do a review on them and get 30% off.

Always on sale. And higher price usually, although not always, means a better toy. I think it's important to evaluate a toy based on its merits before buying it, and the reviews here on Eden help so much. I love it when there is an unexpectedly wonderful inexpensive toy.

I have one that I am in no way impressed by. I look forward to giving other luxury vibes a shot, though. At this point I'm more into high quality dildos. When I'm done obtaining the main ones on that list, I'll move over to high quality vibes.

It depends. I've purchased some of my luxury vibes at full price -- for instance, I purchased a second Uma when my first Uma broke, at full price, because I knew that I enjoyed Uma.

For the most part, though, I usually wait for a sale.

I would say the price does throw it up in the luxury bracket. I know that there are a lot of expensive vibes out there that aren't really high quality (and they should be destroyed by sledge hammer) I really hate the one that I have)), and they shouldn't be in the running with the higher priced, high quality ones. I think that higher than $60 throws it up in the lower end of the luxury bracket. From there all types of variables come into play. The material, the design, the company, the longevity, the list goes on. I think it essentially starts with the price, though.

They just live up to more wear and tear and use than other vibrators. Plus, many times with luxury toys you get a really warranty.
