Quality alternatives to vibrating panties
The sex toy industry is full of gimmicky ideas, and only some of them are as effective as they claim. One such gizmo is the “panty vibe”: a genre of small vibrator you wear in your underwear.
These have many fun potential applications. You could wear a vibe while you go grocery shopping, during your commute, or to other various boring day-to-day activities, as a way of making them more interesting. You could give your partner control of the vibrations while the two of you are out on a date, to add a little kinky excitement to an outwardly vanilla evening. You could pop the vibe into your underwear before you leave to go see your partner, so you’ll be super turned on and ready for them by the time you arrive at their place. See? Wearable vibrators allow for all kinds of imaginative play!
The trouble is, though, that a lot of these vibrators are badly designed. They don’t stay where you need them to stay, their motors are usually weak and buzzy, their remote-control capabilities (if they even have them) are often disappointing, and they’re usually not made to last for the long haul.
However, there are several better-designed vibrators that can be adapted for a lot of the same uses as panty vibes! The We-Vibe Sync, for example, is a C-shaped vibrator that rests on both the G-spot and the clitoris simultaneously. Unlike other We-Vibe models, it has two hinges in the middle, so you can adjust it to fit your body, ensuring it’ll stay in place better than a typical panty vibe. It’s even controllable via smartphone app, so you and your partner can play kinky games together whether they’re across the ocean or across the table from you at dinner.
We-Vibe also makes the Dusk, a butt plug sleeve that fits over their Tango vibrator – but though it’s designed for anal play, it can also be worn vaginally, for hands-free clitoral and vaginal stimulation while you’re out and about. Neat!
Along similar lines: the Dame Eva vibe has two little arms meant to nestle under your labia and keep the vibrating part firmly pressed against your clitoris. If your underwear is relatively tight, you might even be able to get away with tucking a standard bullet or egg vibe down the front of it, for surreptitious clitoral stimulation while you go about your day.
If you prefer your vibration internal, vibrating Kegel balls will achieve the same effect as a panty vibe, except G-spot-focused – and better for the health of your pelvic muscles!
