If you spend time with your battery-operated-boyfriend only when your real guy isn't around, you're both missing out: Forty-one percent of women and men have used a vibrator during foreplay, according to researchers from Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion, and up to 37 percent of women and men have used one during intercourse.
Not only do women who use toys report a host of pleasure perks, but guys say vibes increase sexual desire, erectile and orgasmic function, and intercourse satisfaction, says Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., lead author of the surveys and WH sexuality advisor.
So it should come as no surprise that his-and-her vibrators are the hottest trend in sexy accessories. Ready to get into a good rhythm? These four new options are fun to enjoy solo but were created specifically to be shared with him. Take a peek at our recommendations and then read these six tips for using vibrators (plus how to convince your man to get on board with tech in the bedroom)!

The remote for the waterproof and ubersoft Tiani uses SenseMotion technology that lets you shift between eight modes by simply shaking your wrist or tilting your palm. What's more, the remote vibrates as he controls the patterns and speeds, allowing him to feel the same sensations that you do.
Vibe well together: Inserting the Tiani not only gives you double pleasure with clitoral and G-spot attention, but the vibration on the head of his penis feels amazing for him. If you're worried that both he and the vibrator won't fit, use some water-based lube.

Hold the bulbous end of this rechargeable, waterproof vibe in your hand like a computer mouse and press the vibrating touch pad. The touch pad bends, allowing you to focus the sensation exactly where you want it.
Vibe well together: "Your guy is very much involved in the stimulation—the toy enhances it, but he's the one doing the work," says Lori Buckley, Psy.D., a sex therapist in Pasadena, California. And because the silicone is so thin, you can actually feel his finger pressing through the material. He can stroke your clitoris while going down on you, and he'll love the vibrating sensation on his perineum and scrotum as you give him oral attention. When it's time for the main event, place the larger end on your pubic mound so the vibrating end hits your clitoris.

When an engineer struggled to figure out how to use a sex toy with his wife, he decided to design his own—and the Ola was born. Unlike other vibrators, this one doesn't have any preset patterns; instead, you create your own pleasure pulse by stroking or squeezing the pad. The rechargeable and waterproof Ola repeats whatever you request and can be used for penetration or the ever-important clitoral stimulation.
Vibe well together: "This is like an extension of his hand, because he determines the way it stimulates you, so he'll feel more involved," says Buckley. Let him set a pattern and guide him (with words or moans) until he finds the beat you like best. Or slip it between your bodies during sex to target your clitoris. You can also use it on his penis and scrotum to give him a pleasing buzz.

This toy is truly his and hers. The egg-shape gadget splits into two vibrators: a convex one for clitoral stimulation and a concave one for cupping his testicles. Each is ergonomically designed to fit your hands perfectly and has its own set of buttons that increase or decrease intensity.
Vibe well together: The concave half may have been conceived with his sac in mind, but it also feels great on the butt, the neck, the head of his penis, and, uh, pretty much anywhere! "The cupping action comes in handy because most men say they love having their scrotum held," says Patti Britton, Ph.D., a certified clinical sexologist in Beverly Hills. "It is truly the most sensitive part of a guy's anatomy."
