Rabbit vibrators are very popular and first made famous by Sex and the City. A rabbit vibrator has two parts: a clitoral stimulator known as the ears and a shaft like more traditional vibrators.

The History of Rabbit vibrators?

In 1998, Miranda Hobbes told her friends on Sex and the City that she had finally found “the One” – in the form of the Rabbit vibrator. The girls were skeptical that a battery operated device could be more satisfying than “the real thing;” but later in the episode, Carrie has to stage an intervention for Charlotte who has practically given up leaving her house in favor of spending all her time with the Rabbit vibe. Shortly after the episode aired, that very model was out of stock in adult shops all over the country.

Why is it called a rabbit vibrator?

Manufacturers in Japan made vibrators look like colorful animals to work around restrictions on producing sex toys. They created several variations with different animals attached to the shafts – dolphins, butterflies, even turtles, but the bunny ears proved to be the most popular shape, thus making the Rabbit shape eponymous with the sex toy.

What is a rabbit vibrator?

Sex toy distributor Vibratex introduced the Rabbit to the U.S market in 1983. A decade later, Seattle-based adult brand Babeland started selling the Rabbit Pearl. In 2006, Oprah magazine named the rabbit the “Rolls Royce of sex toys” and its popularity has continued until present day as the most sought-after women’s sex toy.

How does a rabbit vibrator work?

A Rabbit vibrator is comprised of at least two main parts – a shaft (traditionally very phallic shaped, but smoother shapes are now more commonplace,) and the “ears,” a smaller, more flexible antennae attached to the base of the shaft. When the shaft is inserted, the ears should reach the clitoris and stimulate it, which cause dual stimulation – both internally and externally. There are even triple stimulation models now available which included a beaded attachment meant for anal insertion.

What are the different types of rabbit vibrators?

In addition to a variety of vibrating stimulators, these toys also come in a wide array of shapes and sizes! Some models have curved shafts for g-spot stimulation while others are straight; some have shafts that are 8 inches long while some are very small. Since all bodies are different, you may have to try a few styles before finding one that works perfectly for your body.

Rabbits often come with functions that that allow you to control the clitoral stimulator and shaft independently, or buttons to cycle through intensity and function (pulsation, waves, etc.) or buttons for both. Shafts can vibrate, rotate, or thrust, depending on the model. The clitoral flicker generally only increases in speed. High-end toys tend to be easier to use and have customizable functions – some can even be controlled by an app from far away!

What types of materials are rabbit vibrators available in?

Rabbit vibrators are available in many materials – jelly, silicone, glass, and more. Jelly toys are made of a porous rubber that absorbs natural lubrication and is impossible to completely sterilize. This material is usually less expensive than toys made with other materials, making it a good throw-away toy for vacations, etc.

Most modern toys are made with silicon due to its hygienic properties and its soft, luxurious quality. Silicone toys must be used with water-based lubricants only. Glass Rabbits can be heated or chilled for sensation play, and any kind of lube can be used with them. The heavier weight of the glass also provides additional pressure on the g-spot, which can make an internal orgasm more achievable.

How to use a rabbit vibrator?

To use your Rabbit vibrator, remove from box and make sure it’s fully charged or fresh batteries are inserted. Typically before first use you’ll want to charge your toy for 8-12 hours; after this initial charge it should only take a few hours. Make sure your toy is clean and use lubricant for easy insertion. If your Rabbit vibe is made of silicone, be sure to only use a water-based lubricant.

Then, do what feels natural and comfortable for you. Some people like to start from the outside in and use the shaft externally to get “warmed up;” others like to dive right in. As you insert the toy, make sure you keep a firm grasp on the handle so it doesn’t slip out – this can particularly be an issue with a rotating or thrusting toy. Move the toy around and explore where it feels best for you. Don’t forget that Rabbit vibrators aren’t exclusively for solo play – have a partner use it on you or try it on them!

How do I clean a rabbit vibrator?

Always clean the toy using warm water and gentle soap or anti-microbial Toy Cleaner. Medical grade silicone toys are non-porous so they are easy to sanitize. Glass Rabbits can be boiled to sanitize – some are even dishwasher-safe! It’s important to clean your toy before and after each use. Anti-microbial boxes and bags are the best way to store them.

How much does a rabbit vibrator cost?

Rabbit vibrators can range in price from $40 to $250. As with all things in life, you truly get what you pay for. Low quality jelly, battery-operated toys with few controls and functions will be less expensive but are more likely to become dysfunctional fairly quickly. Most silicone vibrators from reputable companies come with 1-10 year quality guarantees. Many Rabbit lovers (including the SATC ladies) initially scoff at the price tag but then come to find that the investment in their body is worth it – would you rather have a $40 orgasm, or a $200 orgasm?
