Techno Rabbit Vibrator

A Rabbit vibrator (also known as a Jack Rabbit vibrator or Jessica Rabbit vibrator[1]) is a vibrating and rotating sex toy, usually made in the shape of a phallus with a clitoral stimulator attached to the shaft. However, the rabbit vibrator has evolved to reach a wider market, with many new introductions that do not take a phallic shape. The name of the device is derived from the fact that the clitoral stimulator looks like a pair of rabbit ears.

In the history of sex toys, rabbit vibrators appeared relatively recently, since the 1990s, in response to the growing female demand for more pleasurable sex toys; their popularity was boosted in the United States after an episode of HBO's Sex and the City ("The Turtle and the Hare"[2]) featured Vibratex's Rabbit Pearl, making it a bestseller. Rabbit vibrators are designed to give more intense sensations than the more traditional dildo or clitoral stimulator, by providing simultaneous vaginal and clitoral stimulation. The device can be used for solo pleasure or as part of partner sex. The "Original Jack Rabbit" was designed and manufactured by California Exotic Novelties.


Normally rabbit vibrators are made out of a jelly-like substance (polyvinyl chloride), silicone (semi-organic polymer), rubber (elastic hydrocarbon polymer) or latex (natural rubber) materials. Silicone vibrators are easier to clean and care for, since this material is not porous, therefore no bacteria or foreign matter is absorbed by the toy. Silicone retains heat and has no odour. Jelly material is porous and cannot be sterilised in boiling water and has a scent of rubber that some find unappealing. In order to escape this smell some producers aromatise the products with more pleasurable scents. Rabbit vibrators made from vinyl, plastic, metal, and elastomer materials can be also found. They are much less porous than jelly, or entirely non-porous, but the texture is smooth and firm.

Use and pleasure[edit]

Rabbit vibrators are designed for simultaneous internal (vaginal) and external (clitoral) stimulation. The rabbit-shaped stimulator is held near the clitoris, while the shaft is taken into the vagina, offering deep, "all around" stimulation. Most models offer a choice of shaft rotation speeds and patterns of clitoral stimulation.

While using a rabbit vibrator, users may benefit from using additional lubrication, as jelly can absorb the body's natural lubrication, and both jelly and silicone create friction against skin. Lack of moisture may cause irritation, discomfort or pain.


The rabbit vibrator has been described as "one of the most visible contemporary signs of active female sexuality".[3] The appeal of the rabbit vibrator is its ability to give clitoral and vaginal stimulation at the same time.[4]
