Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About A Rabbit Vibrator (Complete Guide)

There have been a few inventions that changed the way we live our lives. Fire, the Wheel, the Telephone and Internet were all pretty impressive, but there was a certain type of genius needed to invent the Rabbit Vibrator. Luckily for us, necessity is the mother of invention.

 

A brief history of the Rabbit Vibrator

In the early ’80s, Japan had strict laws governing obscenity. A sex toy company called Vibratex (who also invented the Magic Wand) were the first to make dual-action vibrators and to circumvent these laws, they designed their toys in all sorts of animal shapes with bright, vibrant colours in order not to resemble anything phallic-shaped. The Beaver, Kangaroo, Dolphin and Turtle were all pretty popular, but one stood head and shoulders above the rest. The Rabbit Vibrator.

The Rabbit Vibrator slowly gained international exposure and eventually made its way to America where it swiftly became a hit. So much so that in 1998 the producers of Sex and the City dedicated an entire episode to it. “The Rabbit and the Hare” aired on 2 August 1998, and in this episode Charlotte borrows Miranda’s Rabbit, making her unable to leave her house for days. History was made, and the Rabbit Vibrator was firmly cemented at the No 1 spot in the Sex Toy Hall of Fame.

 

The Mechanics of a Rabbit Vibrator

Rabbit Vibrators come in almost any shape and size imaginable. Still, most feature a penis-shaped vibrating shaft for internal G-Spot stimulation with a smaller clitoral stimulator (called the tickler) attached to it. The tickler is often in the shape of a rabbit with little bunny ears, although this is not necessarily the norm anymore.

Almost all premium Rabbit Vibrators have dual motors, one in the tickler and one in the shaft. The original Rabbit Vibrator also had a set of rotating beads in the shaft but to cut down on noise levels these are not very common anymore (although the Exotic Waterproof Rabbit Vibrator will always have a special place in our hearts)

 

What to look for when buying a Rabbit Vibrator

To be honest, you can’t really go wrong when buying a Rabbit Vibrator; there is a reason why they’re the best selling sex toys in the world. They are designed to stimulate both your G-Spot and clitoris at the same time and provide you with those intense blended orgasms that no other toy (or person for that matter) can. With that being said, they come in so many beautiful styles that there’s bound to be one that fit’s you perfectly.

Here are a few things to consider:

Shaft Size

All Rabbit Vibrator shafts differ in length and width, so it’s essential to put some thought into what your personal preferences are. You should have a pretty good idea of the size you like to work with, but you’re unsure it’s always better to err on the smaller side. You can still have a lot of fun with a toy that’s just a bit too small while a toy that’s too big will just gather dust in your closet. It’s worth mentioning though that a shaft that might seem too big at first may be a perfect fit with the addition of a little bit of lube. For beginners, we would recommend something non-intimidating like the Bunny Love Slimline Rabbit Vibrator.

 

Shaft Shape

Most Rabbit Vibrators have a slightly upward curve in the shaft for G-spot stimulation, but because not all G-Spots are the same, there are a few things to keep in mind. Would you prefer a smooth, bulbous or textured shaft? Do you want it to look like a penis or not? If you prefer more intense G-Spot stimulation, we would recommend a toy with a rigid shaft like the Happy Rabbit Slimline Curve or if you would like something a bit more adventurous you could go for a straight thrusting vibrator. There really isn’t a right or wrong option here as it’s all about personal preference.

 

Tickler/Rabbit Size

The shape and size of the tickler are important as this will determine how big the surface of external vibration on your clitoral area is. If the toy has a large tickler, it will usually give you deep rumbling vibrations over a broad area, and if it’s on the smaller side, it tends to deliver more focused, buzzier vibrations.

 

Tickler/Rabbit Shape

Most Rabbit Vibrators have little bunny ears that will hug your clit tightly, and if you have a larger hood over your clitoris, these are especially handy (although the Lelo Ina Wave might change your mind). The flexibility of the tickler is also important as not all vaginas are the same, and a little bit of manoeuvrability might help you reach your sweet spot.

Some women prefer a stiffer tickler though as you get to apply more pressure on the clitoral area. Think about the way you masturbate and imagine what it will feel like pressed against you, you’ll figure it out.

 

Noise

Unfortunately, if it vibrates, it makes noise and as the power goes up, so does the volume. Almost all Premium Rabbit Vibrators are designed to be as quiet as possible nowadays and won’t be heard through a closed door. Rechargeable vibrators tend to be quieter than battery-operated ones as the battery is moulded into the toy and can’t rattle around.

Silicone also absorbs sound better than plastic so opt for a silicone toy if you can. Just do your research and read some reviews, you’ll be fine.

 

Settings & Control

Any premium rabbit will have at least two separate vibration settings; Speed and Vibration pattern.

The Speed setting controls the speed and intensity of vibration so you can start with a gentle purr and work your way up as the need arises. Different vaginas also prefer different vibration intensities, so this feature is non-negotiable.

The Vibration Pattern setting will let you navigate through different types of vibration. Some women enjoy constant vibration while others prefer short pulses, patterned pulses or a combination of these. Some Rabbit vibrators even remember your favourite or last used settings which is really handy. Having these options are important, they allow you to experiment and ensure that you don’t get bored. A girl has to have options.

Some rabbits have other fun setting options such as thrusting, bead rotation, rotating tips, and independent motor control, to name a few. What’s important is that these controls are simple and easy to learn; there’s nothing worse than having to fiddle with a user manual in the middle of playtime. Luckily they’re designed for hassle-free use and even though it might take some practice, you’ll get the hang of it in no time.

 

Batteries vs Rechargeable

Your two options will be Battery Operated or Rechargeable. We will always recommend getting a rechargeable Rabbit, they might be pricier than the battery-operated rabbits, but you will more than likely save in the long run as batteries are expensive to replace.

Rechargeable rabbits are usually better quality and quieter than battery-operated ones as the battery is moulded into the toy and won’t rattle around once the vibrations start. The only benefit of battery-operated rabbits is that you can quickly replace the batteries if you run out of power, just be sure to stock up because running out of power mid-orgasm sucks big-time. In our experience, just get a rechargeable rabbit.

 

Material

Most Rabbit Vibrators are made from Body Safe Silicone, ABS Plastic or a combination of the two although glass, metal and jelly coated toys are not uncommon. The material you choose is important because this will affect how firm the toy is, how well it vibrates, how it feels against your delicate skin and how easy it is to clean.

Premium Rabbit vibrators usually consist of a plastic frame covered with quality body-safe silicone. This ensures that the toy is rigid enough and properly resonates the vibrations while at the same time being silky soft to the touch and non-porous. You want to also make sure that the material is phthalate-free (phthalic acid is sometimes added to plastic to make it more flexible) as many people are sensitive to phthalates and may suffer reactions. We always take special care to only select phthalate-free toys for our store.

Important note: Only use water-based lube with your silicone toys as silicone-based lube will bond with your toy and turn it gummy.

Waterproof vs Water-Resistant/Splashproof

If you want to add your Rabbit Vibrator to your bath time routine, we definitely recommend getting a waterproof toy. This means you can safely submerge the toy underwater without causing any damage.

A water-resistant or Splashproof rabbit will usually work fine in the shower but should never be completely submerged underwater, even when cleaning. It’s always best to take some time and read the manual of a new toy to make sure whether it’s Waterproof or Water-Resistant. If it’s not clearly marked as Waterproof, Water-resistant or Splashproof, don’t buy it.

 

Cost

In most cases, you get what you pay for. If you want a premium Rabbit Vibrator that’s quiet,  waterproof, rechargeable, made from body-safe silicone, has all the bells and whistles and will last you a lifetime, you can expect to pay a bit more.

Don’t let price be your determining factor though. First decide which features you would like your rabbit to have, what type of design would best suit you and then weigh up your options from there.
