How do I choose a remote controlled vibrator?

Published:

Dear Sex Counselor,

I see some different remote-controlled wearable vibrators on your website. How do they compare in terms of quality, loudness, variability of sensation and wearability for a 1X size woman? On the one that has straps instead of a panty, is it difficult to keep it properly positioned?


Of the remote-controlled items that we carry, the Remote Butterfly is the best choice for a 1X sized woman who wants to wear a vibrator externally.

The Remote Butterfly has a vibrator that sits over the clitoris and a battery pack that sits on the pubic bone. The narrow elastic straps on the Remote Butterfly are very adjustable, and all reviews about it have said that you can set it to hold the butterfly in place without too much trouble. It can be a bit bulky, but can be worn for extended periods of time. It can also be worn during intercourse, since the design allows access to the woman's vulva and vagina.

The Remote Butterfly is fairly quiet when worn snugly next to the skin, is about a medium in vibration intensity, and does not have variable intensities.

Lacey is a vibrator that slips into the crotch of a lacy panty that's included with your purchase. The panty fits 28"-40" hips comfortably; however, it could be adapted for a larger person by creating a little pouch in the crotch of a panty that fits you well. Alternativrely, try slipping the vibrator into a condom, knotting the condom to keep it clean and allow for easier retrieval, and inserting the vibrator into the vagina.

The We Vibe 4 is a U-shaped wearable vibrator that does not need to be held in place with a panty or harness. One end is inserted into the vagina, while the other rests outside the body against the clitoris, and this design helps the toy stay put. This option is rechargeable, waterproof, and can be operated with a remote control or with a little button on the outside of the toy; while it's an investment, it's a high-quality, well-designed product that may be a great alternative to the noisier, battery-operated options. 

Another option is an egg-shaped remote vibrator such as the Pastel Remote Egg, Fancy, or Tiny Dancer. These vibrators consist of a waterproof egg-shaped capsule that can be tucked into a pair of panties or worn inside the vagina. A loop of soft plastic stays outside the vagina for easy removal. All of these have a variety of speeds and pulsation modes. 

There are a lot of new remote-controlled toys coming onto the market, so watch for new and innovative ones to appear here as we find good quality, effective toys.
