15 Vibrator Facts That Everyone Should Know

More than half of individuals with vaginas and almost half of those with a penis use a vibrator during sex.123 However, there is a lot of mystery around these hot sex gadgets. Are vibrators only for masturbation, or may they improve the quality of partnered sex? Who created the Rabbit feeling, and why is it in the shape of an animal? Is it true that using a vibrator too frequently can cause your vagina to become permanently numb?

We asked the experts these and other critical issues in order to collect the 15 most significant and fascinating vibrator facts that everyone should be aware of.

On a pink and grey background, two vibrators are placed next to each other.

7.Thrusting Vibrator


1. Depression and anxiety were treated with the first vibrator.


The vibrator was invented in 1869 by American physician George Taylor. Taylor's initial gadget, a steam-powered vibrator, was intended to cure symptoms of sadness and anxiety in women, which were then referred to as "hysteria," according to Carol Queen, PhD, a sexologist and curator of the Good Vibrations Antique Vibrator Museum.

"Hysteria was treated by vulval or clitoral massage and vibration," stated the queen. People would lie on a table, and a vibrating ball under their pelvis would help them orgasm. This was considered a medical treatment at the time, not masturbation that resulted in sexual fulfilment.4

2. A Medical Device Intended for 'Male Muscles' Was Another Early Vibrator

In the early 1880s, English surgeon Joseph Mortimer Granville produced the first electric handheld vibrator. Granville, on the other hand, did not invent this device to cure "hysteria" symptoms and was strongly opposed to using it on persons with vaginas. Instead, he recommended that doctors utilise the device on "male skeletal muscles."5

Nonetheless, it is speculated that other healthcare providers employed Granville's gadget on vaginal patients anyway. More physicians might acquire similar gadgets as more businesses promoted vibrators as medical devices. Vibrators were made available to consumers at the turn of the century. They were even available in the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalogue in the early 1900s.5

3. The very first modern vibrator was a back massager.

The use of massagers as vibrators is a historical theme. The Hitachi Magic Wand hit shop shelves in 1968, igniting a sex-positive vibrator revolution. Hitachi, on the other hand, marketed the device as a "personal massager," not a vibrator. Nonetheless, feminist sex toy shops began selling it as a sex toy as early as 1974.5 Betty Dodson, a New York-based artist and sex educator, increased its popularity by using it in workshops where she taught individuals with vaginas how to masturbate.6

Hitachi never explicitly affirmed or denied producing one of today's most popular vibrators. However, it was widely known that the Magic Wand was utilised as a vibrator. Hitachi was not pleased, thus it is now marketed without any company branding.5

4. The Rabbit Vibrator's Shape Aided in the Avoidance of Legal Issues

Vibratex invented the iconic "Rabbit" vibrator in 1984, however the Japan-based company did not choose the rabbit shape solely to stimulate the clitoris. Penis-shaped objects were rendered unlawful under Japan's anti-obscenity law. To get past the rule, they disguised the sex toy as an innocent animal. It was originally sold in the United States in 1993 at Babeland in Seattle.7

5. Vibrators Aren't Just Vibrant Penis Shapes

Vibrators of today come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can vibrate, pulse, and suck. External vibrators can replicate locations such as the clitoris, vulva, perineum, penis, or testicles and range in size from small bullets to big personal massager wands. Some external vibrators for the clitoris also offer a suction or licking action that helps to simulate oral intercourse. Penis vibrators can also look like vibrating rings or sleeves.8

6. Internal Erogenous Zones Can Be Stimulated by Vibrators

Internal vibrators, which pulsate or vibrate, can be inserted vaginally or anally. These are also available in a variety of designs, such as cones for the anus or long curved shapes to aid target the vagina's G-spot. If you use an internal anal vibrator, make sure it has a flanged base to avoid becoming stuck in your rectum.

Dual-stimulation vibrators offer the best of both worlds as well, but are typically aimed towards persons with vaginas. These are frequently rabbit-shaped or C-shaped to resemble the inside of the vagina as well as the clitoris.8

7. If You Have a Vagina, Vibrators Provide Reliable Orgasms

More than half of all vaginal users use a vibrator—but why? "They're dependable, and they never tyre, as long as you have a charging cord or fresh batteries," sexologist Megan Stubbs told Health.

According to research, just 18% of people who have vaginal orgasm from penetration alone, and 36.6% require clitoral stimulation to hit the Big O.9 A vibrator provides the clitoral stimulation required by many to climax.

"[Vibrators] act as power tools for intense orgasms," sexologist and trained sex therapist Jenni Skyler, PhD, LMFT, told Health. "Especially for busy, tired, stressed, or lower-libido women, a vibrator kicks arousal into gear way faster than most any other means."

Is it ever a good idea to fake an orgasm?

8. Vibrators aren't just for sex.

"Vibrators are a fun addition to erotic play," the queen stated. "They can be a creative 'let's switch it up' rut-buster, or they can help women come when partner sex doesn't."

According to two studies published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2009, 80% of people with vaginas and 91% of people with penises enjoyed partner play with vibrators.21

When sharing toys, you can also put condoms over some vibrators to protect yourself from sexually transmitted infections (STIs).8

9.Vibrators do not impair sensitivity or cause nerve damage.

Using a vibrator may cause numbness in your vagina and vulva. However, vibrator-induced numbness is uncommon and not lasting. According to research, around 16.5% of people with a vagina reported brief and mild numbness.3 There is also no proof that using a vibrator on a regular basis destroys vaginal nerve endings or creates the fictitious "dead vagina syndrome."10

If you experience any momentary numbness, it's most likely due to overstimulation.3 Change the angle or position of your vibrator by modifying the parameters. You can also take a break to allow your body to rest.

10. Using a Vibrator Is Associated With Improved Sexual Health

Aside from inadvertent tearing or irritation, "overusing" a vibrator poses little threat. In fact, persons who use vibrators on a regular basis tend to take better care of their sexual health and have greater sexual performance.

According to a big nationwide poll, vibrator users with vaginas were more likely to attend an OB-GYN in the preceding year and to self-examine their genitals in the previous month.1 Vibrator use has also been shown in studies to boost sexual desire, erections, and orgasms in people with penises. It can also help people with vaginal arousal, lubrication, and orgasm.3

11. Can a Vibrator Be Tested in Public?

Assume you're in a store looking for a new vibrator and stumble across one you think you might like. How will you know if it provides the appropriate level of stimulation? There is a solution that will not result in your arrest.

"The best way to test a vibrator in public is to touch it to the tip of your nose," he stated. "The high concentration of nerve endings will give you a good idea of how it will feel on your sensitive areas."

12. The Material of Your Vibrator Is Important

When selecting a vibrator, choose silicone over other materials. "It's easy to clean and it's not a permeable material," Queen recommended. Permeable or porous materials (such as jelly vibrators) can accumulate dirt and bacteria, which can then be transmitted to the vagina, causing an imbalance or even infection.8

According to research, some unregulated jelly rubber vibrators include phthalates, which are chemicals that may cause cancer.3 Additionally, when rubber toys come into touch with latex condoms, they might break down.8

13. You Must Clean Your Vibrator on a Regular Basis

Make careful to clean your vibrator after each usage, regardless of its material. If you share toys with a partner, cleaning your vibrator can help avoid infections or the spread of STIs.

Use soap and water, as well as antibacterial sprays. Some silicone vibrators, depending on the model, can even be washed in the dishwasher, but always verify with the maker.8

14. The Incorrect Lubricant Can Ruin Your Vibrator

Using a vibrator with a personal lubricant can make the encounter even more slippery and pleasant. It also lowers the chances of tears and discomfort. However, when using silicone sex toys, only use water-based lubrication.3

Silicone and oil-based lubes can both degrade the surface of your silicone vibrator, resulting in tears and cracks that can harbour bacteria. If you're covering toys during coupled sex, silicone pre-lubricated condoms can also break down silicone vibrators. Not only would the improper lube destroy your favourite vibrator, but it may also raise your risk of infection.3

15. It's Difficult to Recycle a Vibrator

Is your vibration damaged or past its prime? Unfortunately, no matter what it's made of, you'll most likely have to throw it away. The majority of vibrator materials are recyclable, however there is no reliable method for recycling sex toys.

"Most municipalities in North America will not recycle vibrators because they are considered a biohazard," Skyler said. "And for most sex stores, it tends to cost more to recycle old toys than just dump it and make a new one." Throwing your dead vibrator into the recycling bin may result in the entire bin being marked for contamination and discarded. Your best bet is to look for a sex toy recycling programme run by the manufacturer. If it doesn't exist, toss your vibe in the garbage.
