Providing dual G-spot and clitoral stimulation, the rabbit vibrator isn’t as innocent as it sounds — but it will make you want to hop into the sack with it every chance you get.

Although rabbits are primarily used to stimulate the clitoris and G-spot, they vibrate like crazy and can be used to stimulate:

  • Vulva
  • Labia
  • Nipples
  • Anus
  • Labiocrural fold (where the thighs meet the outer labia)
  • Frenulum (just beneath the head of the penis)
  • Perineum (found between the genitals and anus)
  • Any other erogenous zone that enjoys vibrating stimulation

If you’re ready to up your game and try something with a few more bells and whistles than your traditional vibe, a rabbit is a perfect toy to add to your collection.

What Is A Rabbit Vibrator?

A rabbit vibrator is similar to a G-spot vibrator with one major distinction: It has an arm that protrudes from the shaft, curving away from it slightly to stimulate your clitoris when the shaft is inserted into your vagina.

The first rabbit vibrator hit the market in Japan in 1983 before it was introduced to the United States, where its adorable design and incredible stimulation would eventually become nothing short of legendary.

The rabbit’s namesake characteristic — bunny ears — were designed to provide functional stimulation of the clitoris, but they were also a clever way to skirt around obscenity laws in Japan.

The rabbit gained widespread popularity when it was used as a key plot point in the first season of HBO’s Sex and the City in the 90s.

On contemporary models, the arm is often rounded at the tip but many modern rabbits still have the namesake “ears” of the original design, which rest on either side of the clitoris, cradling it while they vibrate.

Yeah, it can be as intense as it sounds.

Rabbit vibrators can offer many features that may include:

  • Having dual motors (in the shaft, and the arm)
  • Being rechargeable
  • Being waterproof
  • Having a textured surface on the bunny ears or the tip of the arm
  • Offering a variety of vibration patterns and settings
  • Customization of patterns and settings for the arm and shaft independently
  • Having a heated shaft
  • Having a thrusting shaft

Because this type of toy provides dual stimulation, the protruding arm often has its own motor and speed settings that operate independently of the shaft, allowing the user to customize both as needed.

These vibrators tend to be on the larger side because they are meant to be fully inserted, generally 4 to 6 inches, to stimulate both the G-spot and vagina.

Although the noise level can vary between different styles of rabbits, they do tend to be on the louder side because of their multiple motors.

In terms of price, the cost of a rabbit vibrator can vary — widely — depending on where you buy your vibrator and the types of features it offers.

Taking a look at the selection on Adam & Eve’s website — a trusted retailer we personally reviewed — rabbit vibrators can run anywhere from about $20 to nearly $200.

No matter your speed or budget, there’s a perfect rabbit vibrator for everyone who’s searching for dual stimulation just the way they like it.

How To Use A Rabbit Vibrator

As a general rule, if it feels good, you can use it any way you like!

The rabbit vibrator is designed to provide simultaneous internal and external stimulation — the shaft is inserted into your vagina to stimulate your G-spot while the bunny ears rest against (or around) your clit.

This can require some positioning and experimentation, depending on the model and your anatomy, but the basic steps are fairly simple.

Using a water-based lube, it’s easiest to insert the shaft before placing the arm or ears against your clit.

However, if you’re not in the mood for penetration at all, you can also stick to the basics and just use the shaft to stimulate your clitoris as a classic wand vibrator would.

Beyond that, you can use your rabbit to stimulate yourself anywhere that feels good, such as:

  • Nipples
  • Labia
  • Labiocrural fold (where the outer labia meet the thighs)
  • Penis or frenulum (beneath the head of the penis)
  • Testicles or perineum (between the genitals and anus)
  • Anus

If you are using your rabbit to stimulate your anus, be sure to properly clean your toy before using it on any other area of your body.

How To Use A Rabbit Vibrator For Masturbation

When enjoying some solo time with your rabbit, begin by slipping the shaft into your vagina to a comfortable depth — water-based lube is a good idea here — and then angle the bunny attachment so it lines up with your clit.

From there, play with the speed and pattern settings to see what you like.

If your rabbit vibrator has many to choose from, you can and should explore all of its settings before you start trying to use it, just so you can become familiar with the way they cycle through — and where the controls are.

One particular downfall of rabbit vibes is that they’re not necessarily one-size-fits-all.

The size of our anatomy and the distance between the clitoris and G-spot can vary from person to person — sometimes, the best rabbit vibrator in the world just isn’t going to hit your sweet spots in the right way.

A rabbit vibrator that features a flexible arm, movable bunny ears, and bendable shaft can offer more manipulation to better fit your body.

Again, that can take some experimentation and at times, it might mean trying a different rabbit vibrator altogether.

The best way to figure it out is just to play with your toy and see what works — and doesn’t work — for you!

​​How Can Couples Use Rabbit Vibrators?

Couples can use rabbit vibrators together in creative ways.

As we talked about earlier, rabbits can be used to stimulate erogenous zones all over the body — regardless of gender.

With that in mind, a rabbit can be used to tease one partner’s body from top to bottom, grazing their neck, shoulders, nipples, stomach, inner thigh, the back of their knees — everywhere but their genitals.

(Saving those for last, of course!)

One partner can use the rabbit vibrator on themselves while their partner watches — or as they masturbate together.

Similarly, one partner can use it on the other at any point during sex play to add stimulation wherever it’s needed most.

The possibilities are endless!

How Can You Use A Rabbit Vibrator During Sex?

A rabbit vibe is a great addition to partnered sex, although it does have some limitations in certain scenarios.

Providing dual stimulation of the clitoris and G-spot, a rabbit vibrator is primarily designed to be inserted into the vagina, making it a little tricky to incorporate into penetrative sex.

It can, however, be a tool for exploring double penetration, being inserted vaginally during anal sex. The bonus? The partner on the receiving end gets to enjoy triple stimulation of their clitoris, vagina, and anus at the same time.

The shaft of the rabbit can also be used to provide clitoral stimulation during vaginal sex, too — you don’t have to insert it to enjoy it!

Additionally, if one partner reaches orgasm while the other hasn’t, it’s easy to call in some backup. Rabbit to the rescue!

  • Do You Need Lube With A Rabbit Vibrator?

Because the rabbit is meant to be used internally, this is a toy you’ll probably want to use with lube.

Make sure you’re using a lube compatible with your toy’s material.

Water-based lube is always the safest bet because it can be used with toys made from any kind of material, plus its texture is similar to your body’s natural lubrication.

Silicone-based lube should not be used with a silicone rabbit because it can degrade its material. Similarly, oil-based lube is not compatible with toys made from latex or jelly rubber.

Our best advice? Check your rabbit’s manual to see what material it’s made from and if there is any doubt, stick with water-based lubricant.

Can You Put A Rabbit Vibrator Inside You?

Of course, you can — rabbit vibrators are designed to be inserted into the vagina.

They are safe for anal use, as well.

Although anal toys are designed with a flared base that prevents them from slipping all the way inside the anus, rabbits have an external arm that manages the same.

That said, you’re probably not going to get the rabbit inserted very deeply before the arm or ears make contact with your body — likely around the area of your perineum, which is located between the genitals and anus.

If it feels good, however, go for it.

Just make sure to clean your rabbit vibrator before using it on any other area of your body (including your vagina) afterward.

Are Rabbit Vibrators Safe?

Yes, they are, when they’re made from body-safe materials. The best ones to look for are high-quality silicone (medical-grade or body-safe) and ABS plastic.

Most of the rabbits available on the market are made from one or both of those materials — but not all of them.

Unsafe sex toy materials include:

  • Rubber
  • Jelly Rubber
  • TPR/TPE blends
  • Other porous materials

Some people worry that using a vibrator might desensitize their clitoris, but it would take a lot more power than your average rabbit can muster to cause permanent nerve damage.

Extended vibrator use can sometimes lead to temporary desensitization, but a short break is enough to bring all feeling back to your lady bits.

In Conclusion

If you’re looking to try something with a little more oomph than your basic wand or G-spot vibrator, look no further than the rabbit.

There’s a reason this style of vibe has been dominating the market for almost 40 years. Dual stimulation? Yes, please!
