When NYC-based Maude hit the scene with its elevated range of modern sexual-wellness essentials, we knew we were in for something special. On top of its subtly sensual massager that can be used in a myriad of ways, bestselling aloe-based organic lube, and hyped-up fragrance-free body oil that you'll want to slather from H2T, there was the tiny-but-mighty vibe that could (and it did). After selling out, restocking, and selling out again, Maude's reader-favorite Vibe is not only back in stock, but in a limited-edition hue. Cue the bedroom confetti. As of today, October 19, you can finally preorder the elusive olive green Vibe — which, may we add, feels oh-so-right for fall. It'll start shipping the week of November 2 and, according to the brand, this will be our last chance to score the top-selling vibe before the holidays.

"Since our launch in April of 2018, our vibe has been our bestseller even though we can't advertise it," Maude founder Éva Goicochea tells Refinery29. "Last year, we briefly sold out a few times, but in 2020, in all regards, was unprecedented." She can say that again. "We never could have anticipated the success and surge in demand for the product," Goicochea adds. The sex toy market is far from new, making it rife with opportunity for reinvention and disruption: "The intention of launching with one, neutral, and the easy-to-use vibe was to redefine it as a basic — just part of your everyday sex life," Goicochea explains. "That our customers have fully embraced and champion it to their friends means that they are also actively destigmatizing and changing the category with us, which was our hope."

The most wanted vibrator has not only topped R29 readers' hit-lists but also reviewers, boasting a whopping 5-out-of-5-star rating on the brand's site with extensive reviewer praise: "I have probably invested almost a thousand dollars in sex-related purchases, and I think this may be my favorite one. I have bought multiple $100-$200 devices, but they don't compare to this little guy. Other vibes have 10+ settings that I get lost wading through in the moment. Not this one. It's the perfect size and the perfect reach. It's super easy to clean. I'm buying a second one today to have on hand so I'm never without. I climax every time. Just buy it." Something tells us this just-under-$50 crowdpleaser won't stick around on Maude's virtual shelves for very long — which, quite literally, makes this your time to shine (if you're also looking to restock your favorite bottle of Shine lube). "Sex is human and all people deserve to feel like they can buy what they need without shame or guilt so we're thrilled," Goicochea told us. "Vive le vibe!"
