In the adult products industry, Vibrating Toys, an essential part, are highly prevalent in all adult stores or online shops. They are also the most common product type for most beginners in the sex toy category. In this article, we, in the capacity of sex toy manufacturers, will share information about vibrating toys and their classification. Additionally, we will provide a brief introduction to each type of sex toy to assist beginners in the sex toy industry or retailers and wholesalers new to this sector in gaining a better understanding of different types of vibrating toys.

1. History of the Adult Vibrators

The history of vibrators dates back to the late 19th century when they were initially designed as medical devices to treat various health issues. It wasn’t until the mid-20th century that the first vibrating sex toys emerged. With advancements in science and technology, the category of vibrating sex toys has expanded significantly, offering a wide range of options. The introduction of remote control and app-controlled vibrators has added a new dimension of playfulness and excitement. Today, vibrating sex toys are ubiquitous adult products, playing a crucial role in sexual health and education for individuals of all genders.

2. Categories of Vibrators

Currently, vibrators have branched out into many categories, with several common classifications found on major retail websites, including the following:

2.1 Classified by Purpose

Vibrators for Men, primarily vibrating toys designed for male stimulation, including Penis Exercisers, Prostate Vibrators, etc.

Vibrators for Women encompass a wide variety of vibrating toys, targeting female G-spots, C-spots, or P-spot stimulation, as well as products like Nipple Massagers, and more.

Vibrators for Couples come in a wide range, catering to both heterosexual couples and same-sex couples, including options for female-female and male-male use.

2.2 Classifying by Product Function

G Spot Vibrator: These products are designed for G-spot stimulation. They work by inserting into the vagina and providing continuous vibrations to stimulate the G-spot for sexual satisfaction. These vibrators are characterized by their ability to enhance sexual pleasure by targeting the female G-spot with varying vibration frequencies, making them a very common type of sex toy.

Clitoral Vibrator: These products are designed primarily for achieving sexual pleasure through vibrating massage of the female clitoris. According to our market research, tongue-like stimulators generally provide more intense clitoral stimulation compared to traditional vibrators, making it easier for women to achieve sexual satisfaction.

Thrusting Vibrators: These vibrators primarily feature both vibrating and thrusting functions, simulating a thrusting motion akin to real sexual intercourse, enhancing stimulation.

Classic Vibrators: These are more traditional vibrators that can be used for clitoral, vaginal, or nipple stimulation.

Double-Ended Vibrators: These vibrators feature motors at both ends, suitable for use by two people or for providing dual stimulation.

Wearable Vibrators: This category of vibrators can be worn on the body, typically within underwear or other internally worn items, offering a high level of discretion and playability.

Remote Control Vibrator: Vibrators with remote control functionality, allowing for remote operation and enhanced playability.

2.3 Classifying by Product Shape

Rabbit Vibrators: These vibrators resemble an erect male penis and feature a small rabbit-shaped attachment designed to stimulate the clitoris through vibration or swinging motions.

Dildo Vibrators: These vibrators have a shape resembling a traditional phallus and come with vibration functionality for internal stimulation, simulating real sexual activity.

Rose Vibrator: This is one of the most popular vibrators of 2022, inspired by the design of a rose. It is developed to provide suction, expansion, vibration, or swinging motions as a sex toy.

3. Usage Scenarios for Various Vibrators

As a first-time user of adult toys, you have the option to choose from the above-mentioned vibrators. Please pay attention to selecting the appropriate size and material. Typically, during the foreplay stage, most people prefer to start with external body massage stimulation. For this purpose, you can opt for Classic Vibrators or Clitoral Vibrators. When a certain level of sexual pleasure is achieved, you can consider internal stimulation, such as G Spot Vibrators or Dildo Vibrators. Of course, Thrusting Vibrators are also an excellent choice.

For couples’ play, wearable Vibrators are highly recommended, and these are also suitable for outdoor use.

4. How to Choose the right vibrators?

4.1 Material and Safety

 When purchasing Vibrators, the first consideration should be selecting a safe silicone material that is harmless to the body. It’s essential to check for relevant safety certificates for the product. Additionally, it’s advisable to gather feedback and reviews from other users.

4.2 Size and Functionality

Bigger is not always better when it comes to the size of vibrators. Choosing the right size is crucial, as excessively large vibrators may cause discomfort or even harm to the body, while too small ones may not provide sufficient pleasure. In terms of functionality, typical vibrators come with features like suction, vibration, oscillation, and expansion. However, it’s important to note that the choice of multi-functional vibrators should also be considered carefully. According to feedback from our product testers, some Clitoral Vibrators with both suction and vibration functions may not be effective because intense vibrations can overshadow the sensation of suction. Therefore, more functions do not necessarily equate to better performance.

4.3 Noise and Waterproofing

Generally, the product information provided by adult toy manufacturers will specify details about noise levels and waterproof capabilities. When making a selection, it’s essential to carefully review this information.

5. Trends in the Development of Vibrating Sex Toys

Currently, the integration of sex toys with Bluetooth and WiFi technology has provided consumers with comfort and convenience through technology and innovation. With the maturation of AI technology, it is believed that in the near future, AI-powered sex toys will also bring significant changes to the sex toy industry.


Vibrators are versatile and diverse products suitable for various purposes and personal preferences. This article has introduced different types of vibrators, including rabbit ears, wand massagers, classic types, and more. We also explored their features such as various vibration patterns, intensity settings, and waterproof capabilities. Finally, we provided advice on how to choose the right vibrator for yourself to ensure you get the best pleasure experience.
