How do Vibrators work?
If you’ve made it this far, you probably already know that vibrators work- but do you know HOW they work? If you cut open your vibrator (which we don’t really recommend) you would see an electrical motor inside with a small off-center weight attached to the shaft. As the motor spins, so does the weight, causing the entire unit to shake. This peculiar shaking sensation is what we call vibration.
Have you ever wondered why some vibrators don’t work as well as others? The amount of power a vibrator can generate is largely dependent on the size of the weight/motor components, so you’ll find that size actually matters when it comes to battery-operated vibrators. A small pocket-sized sex toy will almost never have the ability to generate as much power as a full-sized massager .
That said, some high-end adult toy manufacturers like Lelo have found a way to improve the size/power ratio by housing a second “supporting” motor inside a small vibrator shaft. The strongest vibrators are typically the plug-in models like the Hitachi Magic Wand and the Miracle Massager. A popular choice for women who require more power or who have difficulty reaching orgasm, this style of vibrator employs a large and significantly heavier body to deliver deep, penetrating sensations.
