What Is a Thrusting Vibrator?
Thrusting vibrators are designed to simulate thrusting action. They provide the most satisfying effects when moving back and forth inside the vagina rather than simply staying there and vibrating like G-spot vibrators, for example.
How Do Thrusting Vibrators Work?
Currently, there are two approaches to making a thrusting vibrator. One is a contraction mechanism that works similarly to the accordion, i.e. it expands and contracts to produce a back and forth motion.
The second approach involves unique motors that somehow use magnets to create a pulsating/thrusting motion. The best example of this technology is the Fun Factory Pulsators. In the case of the pulsators, the back and forth movement is much shorter than in accordion-style thrusters. Also, because of the use of magnets, pulsators should not be used by people with pacemakers.
Different Types of Thrusting Vibrators
There are no specific subtypes that are common only for thrusting vibrators, but you can find rabbit, G-spot and realistic thrusters. There are even self-thrusting butt plugs.
Thanks to the super obvious and unique thrusting feature, it is really easy to overlook some of the other important features of a thrusting vibrator. That’s why you must pay attention to this part.
Here are some very important features of thrusting vibrators that you should always put into account when buying such a device.
Thrusting vibrators usually have multiple intensity levels to choose from. In other words, you can set the device to thrust back-and-forth much faster or much slower. This allows you to personalize your experience and move at your own pace.
You mainly need to remember that the more intensity levels (or speeds) it has, the better.
A Suction Cup
A suction cup instantly turns an ordinary thrusting vibrator into a hands-free thruster. A suction cup adds a lot of value to this particular type of a toy, much more that to other types of vibrators.
It’s a shame that not many thrusting vibrators come with a remote control. If the thrusting vibrator allows hands-free use, a remote control is an absolute delight.
The majority of thrusting vibrators you will find on the market will be rechargeable. They do not feature long cords or replaceable batteries. Corded ones would be too inconvenient to use while replaceable batteries would easily make this type of device too weak for anyone to enjoy.
Considering these are rechargeable devices, you will need to recharge them after a certain amount of use. The average battery life for most of them is about 2 hours on a single charge. When buying one, make sure it doesn’t take much longer than 2 hours to fully charge the device. It should be a closely even ratio.
Some thrusting vibrators not only thrust, but also vibrate and rotate. Although vibrating or rotating thrusters are not as common, such toys may be good for users who crave for extra intensity.
How Much Do They Cost?
Thrusting vibrators are not exactly cheap, especially when it comes to a highly realistic thrusting vibrator. In most cases, you’ll rarely find one that costs under $100. From what the market today presents, the average price point you’ll find most thrusting vibrators is around $160.
You can occasionally find ones that cost under $100, but it’s not recommended you use cheaper ones since they might negatively affect your experience. On the other hand, if your budget allows it, you can also find vibrators that thrust costing close to $300, offering better materials, better controls, and an overall more effective design.
Best Thrusting Vibrator Brands
There aren’t too many brands that exclusively make thrusting vibrators out there. However, there are several very high-quality sex toy manufacturers that can meet your requirements.
If you’re feeling confused in terms of which brand to buy your first vibrator from, here are a few choices you can’t go wrong with.
- Velvet Thruster

How to Use One?
There are a couple of different ways to go about using thrusting vibrators. Additionally, it also depends on the type you buy as well. When it comes to learning how to use one, you only need to worry about three types: the regular ones, self-thrusting vibrators, and ones with suction cups.
- Regular: The regular thrusting vibes will do the thrusting by themselves but they require you to hold the toy in position during the whole process. This way, you can easily adjust the angle, the intensity, even the depth of each thrust.
- Suction Cups (Hands-Free): The last type is pretty self-explanatory. All you have to do is find a nice place to stick the suction cup, position yourself comfortably, and let the toy take you on a highly satisfying trip.
Whatever type you purchase, make sure to take things slowly at first. Explore its functions, get familiar with the toy, and be generous with the lube.
Using a thrusting vibrator can offer a very satisfying experience. However, given these toys aren’t usually cheap, it’s best that you use this guide to get educated on the topic. Hopefully, what you’ve seen here will help make a better decision.
