How The Rabbit Vibrator Has Evolved

desireEver since that Sex and the City episode, the Rabbit vibrator has quickly become a girl’s best friend. Yet while the rabbit remains the sex toy industry’s worst kept secret, with all manner of variations and types floating around on the market today, it also demonstrates some of the many glorious enhancements made to our toys in the pursuit of pleasure.

Bedroom Bound!
The notorious Jack Rabbit (alongside the Vibatrex Rabbit Habit and Jessica Rabbit) vibrator is really the original, and some might argue, best of the rabbit vibrators around. It is often considered the archetype upon which most rabbits stem from. Yet this little critter is no small feat on the evolutionary chain.
Featuring a vibrating pearl shaft and iconic phallus shape, the Jack Rabbit favoured a realistic head and shape. Everything your man has and more – as demonstrated by the fun little rabbit shaped clitoral arm! Made primarily of jelly rubber, good old Jack was controlled by a separate attached remote control. These were dual operated and not unlike the wired remotes regular users of egg vibrators will likely be familiar with. To use your Jack Rabbit, a push of one of two buttons was required, controlling either the deliciously rotating shaft and vibrating rabbit ears.
The standard size of this rabbit was around seven inches and more than enough to keep you bound to your bedroom without a set of fuzzy handcuffs in sight! The original Jack Rabbit still has many ladies screaming its praises today and is still a best seller for many industry giants such as California Exotic Novelties or Trinity vibes. These rabbits are a must for any newcomer to the brand and still popular today.
Bathroom and Beyond!
The Jack Rabbit might have been hitting the spot for more than a few of us however, the popularity of this bunny has taught us a lot about diversity. It is no secret that we ladies are as diverse as the men we date. So, gradually, rabbit developers began thinking outside of the box…and even outside of the bedroom! Which leads us to the next stage of our rabbit evolution: how our bunnies learned to swim!
The waterproof rabbit was developed to enable easier cleaning of rabbit vibrators and, more importantly, spice up bath time as well as our sex lives. These updated rabbits came with a slightly longer shaft, inbuilt push button controls and, best of all, came water tight and ready to go. These water babies also upped their game a little, offering more varied vibrating speeds and rotating controls than the original. This addition was so popular that, even today, many modern bunnies such as Love Honey’s own Happy Rabbit Range or the LELO range come ready for bath time.
Moving up in the world
At this stage, our free-roaming rabbits had a whole new world of possibilities to explore. Still, rampant rabbits continued to evolve, most notably in the different types of materials which became available.
Therefore, the next evolutionary stage in the rabbit chain was arguably the luxury and allergen-friendly silicone rabbit. Silicone is usually associated with high end rabbits these days, though actually has far more uses than a smoother, seamless texture. Containing no phthalates, a preservative found in some sex toys, or latex, silicone is the number one choice for sensitive rabbit users with allergies to either.
These toys are also typically non porous, though a little firmer than jelly rabbits. What this particular development meant to rabbit users was that the texture was smoother, the shaft often a little sturdier and a cheaper, water based lubricant was required. In fact, the use of silicone has become so popular these days that you needn’t spend too much to get your hands on one. For example, Bondara, Love Honey and Ann Summers’ own ranges provide silicone sex toys for half the price of more upmarket brands. It really does depend on what you look for in your toy.
Size Matters!
‘One size fits all’ is generally not a phrase we women like to hear, is it ladies? Shirts, skirts, coats, dresses all come in different sizes for different girls. So, why shouldn’t our top drawer bunnies?
And indeed they did and still do! For size queens, came the bigger rabbits, typically between ten and twelve inches in total length, such as Ann Summers’ The Big One.
And for your handbag? Mini-rabbits such as the Ocean BiMINI deluxe. Coming in at around five inches only, these mini rabbits were developed for travel and mobility.
What’s your flavor?
Rabbit vibrators have not stopped there, however. They come in a range of designs, shapes and even uses. In much the same way that most of us go gaga over ice cream or chocolate, each of us has our favourite flavour. The rabbit is no different.
The main attraction of the rabbit was, and still is, it’s dual stimulation properties. However, what toy manufacturers have started to do now is centre their toys towards more specific erogenous zones. So, while you may find a rabbit focused on the power of vibrations, you may also find those which curve up to the G-spot or into the clitoris for more focused attention.
The rabbit’s manoeuvrability as a sex toy has very much paved the way for the types of stimulation we enjoy. So much so that there are various designs and, dare we say it, even mutations of this bunny. In fact, some rabbits, such as Ann Summers‘ Three Way, have even gone so far as to grow an extra limb to include anal stimulation. Some bunnies have become more streamline, favouring a sleeker, more ergonomically designed body, doing away with rabbit ears altogether for a firmer clitoral stimulator. The Fifi by Je Joue and the LELO Ina 2 are both great examples of this. In much the same way that you might ask ‘Ben and Jerry’s’ or ‘Carte D’or’, you may very well scrutinise your bunny in the same way! What’s your flavour, what works for you?
Revolution of Evolution!
What this has essentially done to our toys is bring out the best bits, the bits you love and applied them to many-a-rabbit everywhere. You can also handpick extras, rechargeable, waterproof rabbits not only tailored to your sexual needs but to everyday requirements as well. And, with the cheapest of these retailing at around £7.50 (see the Tracey Cox Supersex mini rabbit), your budget.
So there you have it, the evolution of the Rabbit. Why not get in on the action, pick up your ideal bunny and join the revolution!

  1. Best thing since sliced bread! Everything comes down to whether it is waterproof, made of silicone, multi-functional and rechargeable or not. Having all these features in one toy has its price but with time you will find out that it is completely worth to expend a little bit more for something that you will put between your legs.
