Finding the right sex toy can be difficult — especially if you're on a budget or you've got limited space in your bedside drawer. It means every toy you invest in has to count, which is why the best vibrating dildos are worth researching; not only are they reliable, but they're like getting two sex toys for the price of one.


Whether you're looking for penetration or some external stimulation, realistic vibrating dildos have got you covered. The best options are typically made from body-safe silicone and feature adjustable settings, so you can really explore different sensations and intensities. Unlike more tech-focused toys that can sometimes require a learning curve, most standard vibrating dildos are quick and easy to figure out. (That makes them really terrific for people who are just starting to build out their sex toy collections).


Besides material and settings, the most important factors to keep in mind are the shape and size; be sure to check the measurements as well as what other buyers have said about the experience. Since you're making your purchase online, these extra steps can ensure that you're choosing the best sex toy for your needs.


What Is A Vibrating Dildo?


A vibrating dildo combines the best features of both a vibrator and a dildo to form a ‘wow’ inducing toy. Dildos are typically not powered at all, and vibrators aren’t always the same shape as an actual penis.


With a vibrating dildo, you get the best of both worlds. Solo or partnered, they are awesome.


Types Of Vibrating Dildos


Vibrating dildos all offer slightly different types of vibrations. There are many kinds, but you’ll often come across these two words when browsing vibrating dildos: ‘rumbly’ and ‘buzzy’.


With both types of buzz/rumbles, the vibrating dildo can be used both penetratively and for clit stimulation.


Buzzy vibrating dildos give off a lighter, but faster vibration (similar to bullets). Some get off on the buzz (think, the buzz of the electric toothbrush) teasing their clit or nipples, but it feels amazing inside your pussy, too.


On the other hand, rumbling vibrations tend to reverberate through you. So they’re perfect for deep fucking and rumbles on your G-Spot.


Add Some Extras To The Mix


It might just be a vibrating dildo you choose, but why not get some extra perks with it?


With suction-cupped vibrating dildos, you can go hands-free. A good suction-cupped vibing dildo will stick to anysmooth surface (sexy shower anyone?) for a freeing experience.


If you’re seeking aquatic play, be sure that your suction-cupped vibrating dildo is 100% waterproof and submersible!


Most vibrating dildos are rechargeable, but some are battery-powered. Remember that battery-powered toys are usually less powerful than rechargeable alternatives.


Strap-on/double-ended dildos are perfect for couples who love to experiment. Like, nothing’s off the table. You can both be insanely pleasured, with his P-spot being massaged and her clit and G-spot simultaneously stimulated.


Find The Perfect Girth And Size


Consider that the average penis size is around 6” (in America) so if you’re just starting out, look for something similar.


Girth-wise, you’ll need enough to make you feel full, without overstretching. 


Actually, the ‘ideal girth’ has been claimed to be between 4.5” and 7.5” circumference (whoa), so look within that ballpark.


Choosing The Right Shape, Texture, And Level Of Realism For You


Shape: The shape you choose depends on what kind of stimulation you desire.


Vibrating dildos tend to mimic real penises by nature, and a more true-to-form shaped toy will provide you with a more real ‘full of dick’ feeling than a bullet-shape.


Texture: Vibrating dildos pretty much come in two kinds of texture; veiny and real-feeling, or smooth and polished. 


It can be kinda intense if you select a toy that’s realistically textured, and made from rigid material (like ABS). Remember though, more texture equals more lube…Have a bottle handy! And make sure it’s water-based if you’re using silicone toys.


If you’re not bothered about veiny texture, and you love the feel of soft silicone brushing against you (and inside you) a smoother, bullet-like model is a great choice.


Realism: Toys with a thrusting motion are more realistic. Although being toys and not real dudes with real penises, the range of thrust sometimes isn’t quite as realistic as expected.


Also, soft, pliable silicone tends to feel more ‘real’, than some of the harder, plastic options.


Pay Attention To The Materials


Silicone: This material is popular because it’s super soft, velvety feel is amazingly sensuous on the skin, plus it’s easy to clean and skin-safe.


ABS Plastic: Can be a good choice for your vibrating dildo as it’s highly durable (great for going wild) and it’s non-porous, so it won’t retain any nasties on it after cleaning.


Plus, it doesn’t dull down vibrations. So, often the highest magnitude vibrators will be made from ABS.


Stay away from toys made of PVC, jelly, latex – those are not safe to use materials.


How To Use A Vibrating Dildo


The capabilities on these toys allow for so much playing, whether it’s penetration, buzzing around your nipples, teasing your ass, or whatever you like.


You can also explore your sensitive areas, or use it to massage your partner.


Talking about the partner…There’s nothing sexier than watching you go crazy with a dildo. Even better if they can help them out…


If you want double penetration without needing a third wheel, vibrating dildos are a must-have! Or if your partner wants to explore a little prostate play, they’re perfect.


You can even make sexy blowjob videos for your partner with a real-looking cock (if you’re both into that).


Seriously, the options are endless.


How To Store A Vibrating Dildo


Cleanliness is key when looking after your dildos! Make sure you properly clean them soap and water (or whatever the brand suggests). Dry your toys properly, before storing them in a cool, dry place away from dust. 


If you are not sure about the materials of you sex toys, keep them in separate pouches.


Conclusion


As with all dildos, vibrating dildos are intended for penetration. They can be used to mimic vaginal or anal sex. However, to prevent the spread of diseases, you should never move a vibrating dildo from the anus to the vagina without thoroughly cleaning it.


While they are designed for penetration, vibrating dildos can also pleasure external body parts like the nipples, external labia, and clitoris. They may stimulate these body parts with the vibrations turned on or off. There are also some vibrating dildos, including rabbit vibrators, designed to stimulate internally and externally at the same time.


Most vibrating dildos are handheld toys. However, you can also find strap-on vibrating dildos designed to be worn when vaginally or anally penetrating a lover. The vibrations can be felt by both the wearer and the person being penetrated, ensuring both parties are stimulated. Many strap-on vibrating dildos have additional features to stimulate the wearer’s genitals.


Many vibrating dildos have settings which allow users to choose their preferred vibration intensity. However, intensity will also vary depending on the dildo’s materials. Soft materials like jelly rubber and cyberskin dampen the vibrations and are less intense than harder vibrating dildos made from silicone or vinyl.


Vibrating dildos can be used with lubricants for easier insertion, but you should always check which lubricants are compatible with your vibrating dildo to ensure you don’t damage its material. Clean your vibrating dildo after use before storing it in a cool, dark place.
