How to use a Remote Control Vibrator

Discreet and effortless, remote control vibrators are perfect for couples

Ah the humble remote. Not only do they allow us to leave our feet up while we’re flicking through channels, but they can also give us show-stopping orgasms.

For those who are yet to experience the fun of a remote control vibrator, let us break it down for you. Small and discreet, a remote control vibrator is a vibrating sex toy that comes with its own, separate controller.

This means that you can pop one of these little gems into your knickers, or inside you and use the remote to send lush vibrations to your bits - without anyone being the wiser.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through a few different types of remote control vibrators and show you how to get the most from them.

Whether you're looking to buy your first sex toy, or your hundredth, there are some things you just gotta know. Watch this video guide and let Jess Wilde show you the way

Choose your perfect match

When choosing your remote control vibrator, there’s a few things to consider.

Firstly, where do you want to stimulate?

Our wide selection of remote control vibrators come in a range of shapes and sizes. Some of them set up camp in your undies, while others are designed to be inserted. The smaller knicker vibes are shaped in such a way that they rest against your clitoris. While the larger egg-shaped vibes sit inside your vagina, stimulating your G-spot.

We also sell a range of remote control prostate massagers. These are inserted in your bum, with the wide, flared base sitting on the outside, anchoring it in place.

“After a while, I gave the remote to my partner and the next 20 mins were mind-blowing I had orgasms that I never thought were possible.” - Billy 32456

Secondly, how much range do you need your remote to have?

Most of our remote-operated vibes can be used from several meters away, with the average being around four (think the length of a Volkswagen, or about twice the length of André the Giant). These are ideal for face-to-face fun, or even some outdoor exhibitionism - as long as you stand quite close together.

However, if you’re looking for a remote control vibrator that works from across the room - or across the seven seas, you’ve got to check out our range of app-controlled toys.

“So, I purchased this for my other half while deployed... And it's serious fun...There's nothing better than watching your partner's face as she's about to climax and then kicking it up another notch while being 4,500 miles away.” - Mike-with-lou

These innovative toys connect to your phone, are powered by an app and work from anywhere in the world. They are an ideal choice for long distance relationships. Now, you can pleasure your beau, wherever you go.

This must be the place

First things first, whether you’re using a panty vibe, a prostate massager or a love egg, always slather your toy in plenty of high-quality lubricant. The lube will aid your insertion and enhance your pleasure - so, don’t skip this step!

Next, find the sweet spot. If your vibe goes in your undies, make sure the tip of the vibe rests against your clitoris. If it's an insertable toy, slide it gently inside, making sure the retrieval cord remains on the outside.

Blissful buzz

Once your toy is in place, you can turn on the vibrations. Use the remote to explore the various speeds and patterns. While some of our more affordable toys are single speed, some of our premium models have 12 or more levels of intensity.

“It's not loud at all. The array of settings are brilliant and it’s the perfect size. Not too large, not too small! It’s a very strong product and is almost guaranteed to please!” - Zecpo

You, me and the remote makes three

Remote control vibrators are great because they are perfect for solo use, or couple’s play. To get your lover in on the fun, simply hand them the remote and let them control your orgasmic destiny.

“Good fun out and about with my lover too - he gets the control and randomly turns it on whilst watching me trying to keep my composure talking to others.” - Eggcitable

If you’re feeling really naughty, pop your vibe in place, give the remote to your lover and take your fun on the road. Because these vibes are so small and discreet, no one will be able to tell you’re wearing it (as long as you keep those orgasms quiet).
