How to Use a Vibrating Dildo Alone or with a Partner

Editorial Team |

When it comes to sex toys, nothing beats the features of a trusty vibrator. However, there is a better option out there, and that is the vibrating dildo, as you get a two-in-one toy that looks like a penis but has all the features of a dildo.

The appeal of a vibrating dildo is in its features, and in the multiple ways these can be used. Of course, you can use them for solo play, but also during shared play. You can use a vibrating dildo vaginally or anally, and even use it to tease yourself and your partner. It is why we have prepared the following guide on how to use a vibrating dildo where we’ll cover all the basics and much more.

What Is a Vibrating Dildo?

A vibrating dildo is a dildo with a vibrating mechanism; it is regarded as a particular type of vibrator that resembles a natural penis. It usually features a realistic size, veins, and tapered tips; some models come with balls attached for extra visual satisfaction. A vibrating dildo is great for those who want to experience the feeling of a man's penis inside them without participating in actual physical intercourse.

Vibrating dildos are often made of Cyberskin or silicone, giving them a realistic feel. Additionally, some vibrating dildos can be very bendable, which allows you to explore different positions and intensities. Regarding the vibrating features, some vibrating dildos have one or two vibration modes, while others have multiple settings that allow you to control the level of intensity of the vibrations. Moreover, specific models feature mode buttons on the bottom of the shaft, while others have a remote controller that you or your partner can use from a distance.

Practical Sexy Companion

The beauty of vibrating realistic dildos is that they are practical. As they are a crossover between regular dildos and vibrators, you get the best of both worlds - a realistic sensation and vibrating intensities.

You can also use vibrating dildos in many positions or scenarios. They're great for solo play, as the realistic sensation paired with vibrations is the perfect blend for an intense orgasm. Using a vibrating dildo in the shower or the tub is also an option, although you'll need to search for a waterproof model. Some vibrating dildos come with a suction cup to stick to any flat surface and have your way with it.

Improved Shared Play

If you want to add a slight vibration to your sex play with a partner, a vibrating dildo can greatly intensify orgasms. Different couples can take turns using a vibrating dildo on each other. If you spend more on a bendable vibrating dildo, you can also use it to hit the G-spot and increase your pleasure tenfold. Moreover, most vibrating dildos are designed to fit into adjustable strap-on harnesses, so playing with them can be even more fun.

Your partner can use the vibrating dildo to hit your G-spot while stimulating you anally with his penis. Best of all, the vibrating dildo doesn't have to limit the use of other toys during sex. It can easily be combined with a clit-sucking toy, anal dildo, or butt plugs for increased stimulation.

Types of Vibrating Dildos

We are offering a great range of vibrating dildos in our store, but in the interest of covering all the bases, in our guide on how to use a vibrating dildo, we’ll list the main categories of vibrating dildos you’ll encounter. Also, please note that you can use these for solo or shared play and add some vibe to your play:

Vibrating Realistic Dildos with Suction Cup

While discussing the hands-free play, you can also enjoy suction cup dildos and vibes designed to stand still while you ride them. The suction cup is usually placed at the bottom of the vibrating dildo, allowing you to stick it to any flat and clean surface. You can enjoy your vibrating dildo on the floor, have fun backing up on it attached to a wall, or take it in the shower if its design allows it. The suction cups are robust and designed to remain in place no matter how hard or demanding your sexual desires get.

Thrusting & Vibrating Dildos

Thrusting vibrators have a unique thrusting mechanism that mimics the movement of a penis during sexual intercourse. If you're ready to experiment, a wireless thrusting dildo with a rabbit extension will give you hands-free pleasure, penetrating and stimulating your clitoris at the same time.

Vibrating Strap-On Dildos

This type of vibrating dildo can fit in a harness. The flare is usually bigger, so it can be placed in an adjustable O-ring, or some cases, the strap-on vibrator comes attached to the harness. This sex toy is entertaining since it opens opportunities for vaginal or anal penetration, double penetration, and pegging. The shaft is usually realistic and resembles the classic vibrating dildo, but you can also choose strap-on vibrators with different mechanisms and shapes. A most popular option are the strapless strapons.

Choosing the Right Vibrating Dildo for You

Vibrating dildos offer a range of features and come in multiple forms. Depending on your sex life and how you want to incorporate a vibrating dildo into your life, here we share the key aspects you need to know before you decide which model to buy:

What Do You Want to Use Your Vibrating Dildo For?

Before you start shopping, ensure you clearly understand why you want to use the vibrating dildo. While penetration is its primary purpose, you may want to think ahead if you plan on combining your vibrating dildo with other toys. For example, if the vibrating dildo doesn't feature a flared base, it won't be able to fit and stay put in a strap-on harness or be used anally.

If you plan on using the vibrating dildo solo, a solution cup will give you the freedom to enjoy it hands-free. Moreover, if you want water adventures and enjoy achieving orgasms in the tub, choosing a waterproof vibrating dildo is a must.

What Material Should Your Vibrating Dildo Be?

As mentioned, most vibrating dildos are made from silicone or Cyberskin; however, you'll also find models made from latex, rubber, and plastic. These materials are more porous and less body-safe, meaning they can be unsafe in the long run, and can be less durable for prolonged use. The material choice is essential as it directly leads to the type of lube you must use. Most vibrating dildos made from non-porous materials easily pair with quality water-based lubes, the safest and least irritable option for your skin.

Consider Battery Life

While vibrating dildos generally last longer than a real man, they still have limited battery life and need to be charged occasionally, depending on how frequently you use the sex toy. Corded vibrators are another option that needs to be directly connected to a power socket to work. While this option is practical and will allow you to play with your sex toy much longer, it restricts your flexibility with the vibrating dildo.

Carefully Select a Suitable Size

Size matters, no matter how you want to use your vibrating dildo. For beginners, it's best to start with smaller sizes and see how your body responds. You can take your regular dildo as a baseline measure; however, if you don't have experience with vibrating toys, a bigger vibrating dildo may feel overwhelming. That is why we’ve prepared a detailed dildo sizing guide for you.

What Type of Vibrations you Need?

The vibrating mechanism of the sex toy is just as important as its realistic design. You want to choose a vibrating dildo with as much power range as possible. The more vibrating modes it features, the easier it will be to adapt it to your sex life. For example, mild vibrations are great for foreplay, and your partner can use the vibrating dildo to tease your clitoris or nipples without stimulating penetration. Other times, you can use its more powerful features to increase the pressure on your vaginal walls during penetration and achieve explosive orgasms.

What is Your Available Budget?

Sex toy manufacturers constantly develop new designs, so we are constantly bringing you new models and it can be challenging to pick only one model. So, we advise you to set a budget and look for the best model within that budget. Also, we always recommend you buy your sex toys like a vibrating dildo from reputable manufacturers that stand by their products and offer warranties and guarantees on using body-safe materials.

How to Use a Vibrating Dildo

If you've previously used a dildo, chances are you'll know how to handle a vibrating dildo as well. However, the vibrating mechanism can be a game-changer, and here we share a guide on how to use vibrating dildos to get the most out of your experience:

Clean before and after every use

Whether you've just bought it or had it stored, we always remind you to

clean your vibrating dildo before you use it. You can never be too hygienic regarding sex toys. Always consult the label of the product regarding cleaning the vibrating dildo; but oftentimes using soap and warm water works well, as do various sex toy cleaners.

If your vibrating dildo is waterproof, you can be more comfortable with washing it; but if you have a non-waterproof model, wiping it with antibacterial wipes or rinsing the insertable part carefully will do the trick.

Get in the mood

The beauty of solo play and trying a new sex toy is the ability to dictate the pace. Get into the mood by playing some music, putting on your favorite lingerie, and dimming the lights. The realistic design of a vibrating dildo can be enough for some people to get turned on and adds to the reality of kissing or sucking it. You can use it on your erogenous zones or start pressuring your clit with mild vibrations to get things going.

Have Lube Handy

Before you get to the penetrating part, add some lube on top of the dildo. Silicone lubes are among the most commonly used lubricants for dildos, as they are the most similar to natural body fluids and provide seamless penetration. However, they cannot be used with silicone toys, as the surface of the toys can get damaged during friction.

Water-based lubes typically go well with all sex toy materials because they're slippery enough to ensure frictionless penetration without making too big of a mess. However, they need to be reapplied more often, especially during long erotic sessions, and since they dissolve in water, they can't be used in the shower.

Let the vibrations begin

Once you've heated up, the action can begin. Turn up the vibrations and choose your preferred mode. In general, vibrating dildos have somewhere between 3 and 20 different modes of vibration, differing in power and patterns. Which mode you choose depends on the intensity of the stimulation you desire. The most potent modes are best for a quick orgasm, while patterned modes are better if you like edging.

Experiment with different positions

Typically, as a first-timer, it's best to explore how the vibrating dildo feels lying on your back; this will give you the fool control over the penetrations and also allow you to switch between modes as soon as something feels off. Once you learn to handle the different modes, you can explore different positions alone or with a partner.

For example, vibrating dildos with a suction cup allow you to move over the sex toy and ride it cowgirl-style. Some vibrating dildos feature remote controllers or can be controlled by a downloadable app on your phone. If you're feeling naughty, you can allow your partner to handle the vibrations of your vibrating dildo while you penetrate yourself. You can also use the vibrating dildo to explore anal play; however, it's not advisable to use the sex toy for both holes.

Extra sex toys for extra fun

A vibrating dildo won't limit you from enjoying other sex toys, especially if you engage in couples' play. Add anal toys, nipple clamps, a C-ring, restraints, or other sex toys to the mix. As we mentioned, many vibrating dildos also pair well with a harness, allowing you to switch up positions and the type of play. It's important to stay safe and discuss consent beforehand; however, once that's out of the way, there's no limit to your fun.

Final Thoughts

Vibrating dildos are multi-purpose toys as you get a combination of features rolled into one: a realistically designed penetrative device that stimulates via multiple vibration intensities and patterns. Whether you want to make your masturbating sessions more efficient or spice up the erotic plays with your partner, adding a vibrating dildo can take your sex life to another level.
