Q&A: How to Use a Rabbit Vibrator?

Dear Sh!

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.


Hi there,

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!

If 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.

The thing about any sex toy is that there is no right or wrong way to use it .

How you use your rabbit vibe is ALL about exploring what feel 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 it's great for exploring what you do like, what you love and what you can leave...

Basically, a rabbit has rotating shaft for penetration and a external vibrator for clitoral stimulation.

The beads inside the shaft provide a massaging sensation just inside the vagina and the twirling motion can also stimulate the G-Spot - thou 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-bit during masturbation.

The vibrating rabbit ears work so well because they can sit either side of the clitoris, giving clit vibration that's indirect but intense.

Enjoying the bunny ears, without the shaft, makes it easier to experiment and find what sort of angle and pressure of vibration suit you best.

The beaded shaft provides a massaging sensation you will never have felt before and deffo worth trying!

A Rabbit offers the chance of a blended orgasm!

A blended orgasm is one that is external (clitoral) and internal (possibly G-Spot) at the same time.

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.

The shaft of the Sh! Rabbit Vibrator is slimmer than most vibrators, so it's ideal if you've not had much experience with penetration.

We'd suggest always using a water-based lubricant with toys (and with all kinds of sex, actually) as it makes everything smoother and more sensual.

It sounds like your friend has got a great present lined up for you - hope you have a fab birthday and lots of fun!

Please do give us a shout if you've got any more questions.

Best Wishes

    I would really appreciate your advice re vibrators. I am currently undergoing psychosexual therapy, and my therapist has advised me to get a vibrator to 'do some work by myself.' I find penetration quite difficult,and have worked through problems with vaginismus. Although I can tolerate penetration without pain now, I don't seem to derive much pleasure from it, and during intercourse with my partner, any sexual arousal and pleasure I derive from clitoral stimulation in foreplay is wiped out when penetration takes place. I have always been able to reach orgasm on my own through purely clitoral stimulation. I've had vibrators in the past, but they lived in the drawer for a few years, then got thrown away. I found them a bit scary! I would be very grateful for any help or advice you can give,
    Many thanks.

      Hi there,

      Many thanks for your email.

      Firstly, may we apologise for the time it has taken for us to reply - we get so many emails!

      Relaxation and time is important. Make sure you have time to yourself (turn your phone off, make sure flatmates are out for the day etc), and this also includes your partner. This is easier to do by yourself, to begin with. That way you don't have to worry if your partner is having a great time or not, and you can just concentrate on your own body.

      Arousal starts in the brain, so it's a great idea to read erotica (we have many great titles written by women for women) or download some porn if you prefer.

      Lubrication is really important, and in your case we'd recommend a nice thick, water-based lube like our Pure Plus. It's almost like hair gel in consistency, and it offers "padding" to make everything softer and slidier.

      We would recommend starting off small - very small. We sell vibrators (like Sh! Discreet) that are no bigger than a finger, and these are very good for training/dilating. The vibration can really help relax tense muscles, but it's important to take baby steps. To start off with, you might not even want to put the vibrator inside ~ which is perfectly ok. It's about learning to relax, and letting your body tell you when it's ready. You may only put a small bit (the tip) inside, and that's perfectly ok too. Think of it as a marathon, not a sprint.

      Over time (marathon, remember!), you'll feel more confident and will be able to insert more of the toy. When it begins to feel almost "too easy", it's time to move up to a sightly girthier toy, maybe a vibe that's 1.5-2 fingers wide in girth. Then you do the same again. Over time, your vaginal muscles will become accustomed to penetration, and hopefully your brain will recognise it as something pleasurable. At this point, and only at this point, is it time to attempt penetration with your partner. Trying too soon will ensure that the vaginismus kicks in, and the brain will think of sex as something painful.

      Best of luck, and let us now how you get on!

      Team Sh!
