Is the Rabbit vibe really all it’s cracked up to be?

Debby: Not as far as I’m concerned, but other responses is legit too. Some people love using Rabbit-like toys for masturbation or partner play. Others (even people who otherwise enjoy vaginal stimulation) think they’re pretty meh. That’s the thing about sex and sex toys — what pleases one person turns another person off. There’s also no such thing as “the Rabbit vibe” in the sense that there are many iterations of a similar product but not one standard. Usually when people talk about Rabbit vibrators, they’re referring to battery-powered vibrators that have a handle with multiple speed options, a shaft for vaginal stimulation, and a little “arm” that comes mid-way off the shaft and that’s intended for clitoral stimulation. The little “arm” has bunny ears (hence the name). Those are just the basics, though. Some Rabbit vibrators look just like that and others are rotating balls, pearls, or beads. Some versions even include electrical stimulation. And while some Rabbits are made with high end silicone (and thus are pretty pricy), others — like the original versions — are made with cheaper Jelly-like material. Water-based lubricant can be used with any of these; silicone-based lubricant should be used only with the non-silicone toys.
