A Guide to the Perfect Rabbit Vibrator for You

A guide to the perfect rabbit vibrator for you… But first, a little history:

Wednesday 31st March 1999 was a very important day in Britain’s history (Reference 1), proving not only to be a game changer for the adult toy industry but it also provided a shot in the arm to a much-needed sexual revolution that is still ongoing and we’re happy to report, in ruder health than ever.

This was the day that iconic US comedy-drama Sex and the City introduced most of its UK audience to the rabbit vibrator.

For many women, even those that had used a vibrator before, their lives over the following days, weeks and months pretty much played out the storyline of that particular episode: Miranda introduces Charlotte to a sex toy called “the rabbit”, at first Charlotte’s not sure about it but trusts her friend and experiments with “the rabbit” anyway, resulting in …

… Charlotte realising it’s her favourite invention of all time and doesn’t leave her home for days.

Whilst rabbit-style vibrators have been around since the mid-1980s (Reference 2), it was this moment – coinciding with the start of online shopping that kick-started the long process of stigma shattering and liberalising a nation’s attitude towards not just rabbit vibrators but sex toys in general.

What needed changing?

Everything; from how sex toys are viewed, how people who use them are viewed, how people who use sex toys viewed themselves, to how sex toys are discussed in public (and not just after a few glasses of wine) to how much easier it is to buy them (online and in bricks-n-mortar shops).

Whilst the final chapter of this particular revolution is still to be written, the feeling is the ending isn’t too far away. The evidence being lived by our shop floor staff certainly backs that up; knowledgeable, open-minded individuals who on a daily basis chat to (mostly) equally mature folk from all walks of life who view sex toys as just another part of a well-balanced, healthy sex life.

Sub-culture to pop culture

Even if you have never set foot inside an adult store in your life, the evidence that British mainstream culture is embracing sex toys rather than gawking at them can even be glimpsed on popular morning television where sex toys are occasionally discussed in a way that, a few giggles aside, is overall informative and sensible.

For a nation of people that have a world-beating reputation in the art of being buttoned-up and where closing the curtains is a way of life, that’s huge progress.

While there will be debate about how much credit that famous episode of Sex and the City truly deserves, the steep increase in public demand for rabbit vibrators after it premiered cannot be denied, doing for sex toys – the rabbit vibrator in particular – what the famous Meg Ryan/Billy Crystal diner scene in When Harry Met Sally (1989) did for discussions about the female orgasm.

 

And now for the billion dollar question: Why are rabbit vibrators most women’s favourite vibrator?

The reason rabbit vibrators are, for most women, the sex toy they treasure the most is its designers eventually hit upon the winning formula, which was (and still is):

  1. Their smart appearance; even if you’re someone who doesn’t consider the rabbit a particularly attractive design you can’t exactly call it an eye-sore.
  2. More sophisticated than toys that were available before it, yet still simple to operate.

Whilst we shouldn’t undervalue the importance of these two design aspects, arguably the most important piece of the puzzle is:

3. Penetrates the vagina while sending extremely pleasurable vibrations to the clit at the same time, the ultimate 2-in-1.

To today’s generation, the idea of sex toys being snazzy, uncomplicated and offering internal and external (clitoral) pleasure seems like such a basic idea, a no-brainer, but prior to the mid-1980s the only vibrators for vaginal stimulation were dildos designed to resemble erect penis’s and vibrators that were several inches in length and straight as an arrow.

Before anyone thinks “wow, they sound alright”, we must stress the cock-looking dildos and basic vibrators on offer back then are nothing like the realistic dildos and shaft-only vibrators being sold today.

To quote the owner of the company that first introduced Western consumers to dual-action vibrators, Vibratex’s Shay Martin, not only were toys back in the day made of cheap tacky plastic but appearance-wise had “the unappetizing colour of uncooked hotdogs” (Reference 3).

By the time “the rabbit” made its guest appearance on Sex and the City, Vibratex had already given it three important make-overs:

  • Use bold, vibrant, eye-catching colours only.
  • They settled on a rabbit head/rabbit-eared clitoral stimulator (“the rabbit” began life as “the kangaroo” before evolving into “the turtle” and numerous other animals).
  • Putting the battery compartment and control buttons at the base of the toy (prior to this innovation rabbit vibrators operated by wired remote control).

There is no debate about the vibrating clit stimulator being the star of the show. However, it would be wrong to not give a little credit to the less celebrated half of this now legendary double act, the shaft.

The visual spectacle of a shaft rotating, round and round, continuously at variable speeds, with a portion of the shaft packed with small beads that also span round undoubtedly sealed the deal for many shop assistants showing rabbit newbies their first rabbit.

Impressive indeed, up until this point most people had never experienced or even seen a toy that moved like this before. A far cry from the reliable but familiar vibrating shaft, this was fresh, dramatic, exciting. If you became acquainted with the rabbit after many companies upgraded their beads from plastic to one’s fashioned from metal it would have planted the tantalising fantasy of many tongue-studs working their magic all at once, only now for female kicks.

 

You’re talking, we’re listening. You’re buying, we’re hiring.

The continued success of the rabbit vibrator is down to one thing: women.

Women are the reason why a lot of rabbit vibrators look and function differently in 2019 to how they did in the late 1990s. Women are also the reason why some rabbit vibrators look, feel and operate roughly the same as those that were available twenty-odd years ago. In short, some women thought the rabbit they bought back in the late 1990s/early 2000s was sex toy perfection, others were impressed but “you know, if they just changed this and tweaked that”.

Of course, there was the odd occasion when toy companies would bring out a rabbit with a never-seen-before new feature and take both retailers and customers by pleasant surprise …

… Though women should be credited with many of these successful ‘Eureka’ moments too, the companies that had a strong female influence in decision making – be it middle to high ranking employees or at the very least had women test their prototypes and not pay lip service to their feedback – got it right more often than not.

To sum up, the companies that didn’t move with the times and populate their business with women…

Enough learning, start playing

As mentioned earlier, some women thought the traditional rabbit vibrators didn’t need improvement as they were already sex toy nirvana, others thought they hadn’t yet reached their full potential and could do with a few adjustments here and there.

As that old saying wisely teaches us, different strokes for different folks.

That’s the reason why you can walk into any Pulse & Cocktails and see a row of different rabbit vibrators, some retaining that traditional look and feel, others kitted-out with the latest innovations the industry has to offer, and others occupying the middle ground – striking a nice balance of keeping ‘this’ but redesigning and hopefully improving ‘that’.

 

The Rolls Royce of Rabbit Vibrators

Seduction G-Spot Vibrator, £119

Features arguably the most revolutionary innovation the rabbit has undergone this century.

The vibrating rabbit ears have been replaced with an oval-shaped electro-powered suction cup. Put simply, instead of vibrating against the clit, it sucks on it.

·         12 modes of suction; varying tempos and intensities (slow, deep and intense to quicker, shorter, lighter sucks).

·         Vibrating shaft features 12 modes of vibration; multiple speeds/intensities, pulsations, escalations.

Our powerful Rabbit Vibrators

My Amour Luxury Rabbit, £119

Where the Seduction (see above) features a redesigned clit stim but keeps the classic vibrating shaft, My Amour does the opposite, keeping the world famous vibrating rabbit ears but giving the shaft an entirely new ‘throbbing’ sensation; offering a more natural throb-n-thrust movement that is closer to real life sex than standard shafts that either rotate or vibrate.

Like the Seduction, this bad boy is also USB rechargeable; you need not take the batteries out of the TV remote ever again.

A good all-rounder Rabbit Vibrator

The Romping Bunny strikes a nice balance at bringing together popular features from last decade and this decade, keeping the vibrating rabbit ears and vibrating shaft but gracing it with a few modern touches by making it from gorgeously smooth silicone and having it be USB rechargeable.

It also scores big in the power stakes, producing eyebrow-raising levels of intensity in the shaft and rabbit ears. One neat little innovation is each rabbit ear has been fitted with a vibrating motor, one motor servicing the whole clit stim is standard, this bunny goes one better for a more satisfying result.

·         Vibrating shaft and rabbit ears.

Our Quietest Rabbit Vibrators

Hush Rabbit Vibrator, £39.95

As the name suggests, the Hush Rabbit Vibrator is one of the quietest vibrators we’ve (just about) heard in a long while.

Like the Mysterious Pleasures Vibrator (featured above), it has done away with the rabbit ears and replaced it with a flat surface that works its magic by smothering the clit with vibrating goodness.

Pink Rabbit Vibrator with Electro Sex Feature, £59.95

·         Vibrating shaft and rabbit head/eared clit stim.

·         Both shaft and clit stim produce multi-speed/intensity vibrations.

·         Made from body-safe materials.
