This is a bit embarrassing, but here goes…
My best friend is buying me a rabbit vibrator for my birthday – and I’ve never used one before. I don’t want to ask her about how to use a rabbit vibrator! I’ve not had much sex either, so I wondered if I’ll be able to enjoy a rabbit vibrator, or should I ask her for vouchers instead? Will my rabbit vibrator come with instructions?
Hope you can help.
Thanks for getting in touch. Don’t panic – women who’ve had any level of experience can have a lot of fun with a rabbit!
The thing to remember with any vibrator is that there is no right or wrong way, just your way…
Generally, the instructions on the box are practical and cover what kind of batteries it needs and what the buttons do, but never fear we’re here to help, so here’s some advice and tips on how to start playing with your rabbit.
As, it’s a new experience for you, we’d suggest taking some time to enjoy it – maybe wait til you’ve got the house to yourself, turn off the phone and give yourself lots of relaxed, uninterrupted time to really explore its sensations.
Before you start to play, it’s good to familiarise yourself with all the settings. Usually with rabbits there are 2 different buttons or sliders
- One controls the vibration of the bunny-shaped external clitoral stimulator
- One controls the sensations of the shaft
Taking some time to learn how to press the right buttons, will make sure it presses all your right ones too!
How you use your rabbit vibe is ALL about exploring what feels great for you.
Some people think that a rabbit vibrator is too ‘complicated’ for a first vibe, but this isn’t so.
In fact, because it offers a lot of different sensations a rabbit is actually a great first vibe for exploring what you do like, what you love and what you can leave…
Basically, a rabbit has rotating shaft for penetration and an external vibrator for clitoral stimulation.
The beads inside the shaft provide a massaging sensation inside the vagina and the twirling motion can also stimulate the G-Spot – although G-spot orgasms aren’t a terribly common experience for most women enjoying their rabbit.
Actually, for most women it is ALL about the clitoral stimulator in the shape of a bunny with two long ears.
In fact, many women tell us this is the only part of their rabbit they play with ie, they don’t actually use the shaft portion of their during masturbation.
The vibrating rabbit ears work so well because they can sit either side of the clitoris, delivering vibration that’s indirect but intense.
Explore the sensations of the clitoral-stimulating rabbit first
Start out by exploring just the sensations of the bunny ears on and around your clitoris ( without using the shaft at all) , This makes it easier to experiment… to hone in on the pleasure it’s giving and to discover what sort of angle, pressure, level ( low, medium, intense?) and type ( steady, escalating, pulse?) of vibration that suits you best.
If there is one ‘complaint’ we hear about the Rabbit, it’s that it can make you orgasm too quickly!
So, you may not even make it to the shaft-discovery for a while and don’t worry about that, just enjoy the journey…
We always recommend using a water-based lubricant with toys (and with all kinds of sex, actually) as it makes everything smoother, sleeker and way more sensual…
So, with a few drops of lovely lube, coat yourself and the areas of your vibrator that will come into contact with your delicate bits, then wipe any excess off fingers and toy-handle, as having a vibrator shoot out of your hand, or fingers too slippery for button-pushing, is the way to fast-forward to frustration…
Rabbit Vibrators are famous for ‘blended orgasm’
A blended orgasm is one that feels like it comes from both inside and from your clitoris, at the same time.
So, when you’re ready, slip the beaded shaft inside you. This doesn’t have to be on your 1st go, or even on your 10th, just whenever you feel like trying it.
The shaft of the Rabbit vibe rotates, so gives a swirling feeling inside, whist the beads stimulate just inside the vagina, where most of the nerve-endings are. It’s a massaging sensation you will never have felt before and totally worth exploring because it’s this, coupled with the clitoral bunny thrills, that offers the chance of a blended orgasm.
Using a rabbit ( or actually any vibrator) in a ‘thrusting’ motion, maybe the stuff of porn films, but, in our experience, it’s not a big thing in most women’s solo sex repertoire. Rather, it’s held in place to do it’s fabulous whirling massage, with little manual movement.
At 1.25 inch diameter, the shaft of the Sh! Rabbit Vibrator is slimmer than most vibrators, so it’s ideal as a first rabbit, as it is not too overwhelming.
It also features clear, easy to understand and operate buttons that control the 12 different settings ( including low to high vibration, escalating, different pulse patterns & two-way shaft rotation)
It sounds like your friend has got a great present lined up for you – hope you have a fab birthday and lots of fun!
