Remote Control Vibrators – The Definitive Guide

Are you someone that’s getting tired of the traditional vibrators and are looking for something extra? Are the old dildos just not doing the job well enough anymore? Well, you’ve come to just the right page. Remote controlled vibrators are the next best thing that you could possibly hope to find to reinvigorate your private solo sessions. In this guide, we’ll be going over all there is to know about remote controlled. Without further ado, let’s get right into it.

What is a Remote Controlled Vibrator?

There’s not much to say about this, the name itself is pretty self explanatory. They’re basically a sex toy with a vibrator installed in them that can be controlled remotely. There’s not much rocket science to this definition, everyone probably knows this.

Most remote controlled vibrators have literal remotes with them that can be used to control the vibrations, patterns and varying speeds. But, some vibrators even use an app on your mobile for added controllability. A mobile app allows way more customizations along with unique features like syncing vibrations to songs.

Types of Remote Controlled Vibrators

There’s not really types of remote controlled vibrators, but if we had to name a few, we can probably categorize all in three sections


Once again, the meaning behind wired remote vibrators is pretty obvious. They are vibrators, with a corded remote. Wired vibrators have their perks. The remote is pretty decent and won’t require a change of batteries every now and then. But, a wired vibrator greatly restricts arm movement and using the toy might not be as convenient as you’d hope for. Plus, wired vibrators are never good in showers or tubs. You’d probably get the same reaction you’d get when you jump into a tub with a wired toaster in it.


Wireless are more commonly found (and preferred) type of vibrators. Wireless vibrators open a wide range of possibilities as you’d be able to play without any restrictions. The best thing is that wireless  vibrators are usually a couple’s toy. Meaning that your partner will be able to give you great sensations while sitting in the next room.

Long Distant Remote Controlled Vibrators

All hail the savior of long distant relationships! If you’ve ever been on a holiday or a business trip without your other half and seem to be missing them, you can always buy a LDR remote controlled vibrator to help shorten the distance. These bad boys can be hooked up to your phone via Wi-Fi and then your partner could go ham with the vibrations. These vibrators are the ones that come from the app on your partner’s phone. There are certain producers that create devices for him and her. There’s going to be a vibrator in your hand, while your partner has a fleshlight type object in theirs. This offers a much higher standard of long distant sex. It might seem complicated, but this is actually pretty fun.

Lovense Lush explanation

You could talk about wireless and LDR in the same category, but a standard wireless vibrator can’t even communicate two stories down, let alone from Houston to Hawaii.

Whether you are a sexual maverick or not, being in a long-distance relationship will turn you into one. You will be having way more phone sex than actual sex. Showing your other half what you are wearing and that leading to what kind of underwear you have on to sending plain old nudes and sexting just as often as talking will be the new norm for you. Your phone calls will be filled with sexual innuendos and your fingers will itch to simply get a hold of the other.

At such a time, either things have a tendency to get boring or you actually succumb to the one thing that will quite literally murder your relationship – a short fling. Now that just isn’t right, now is it? Thus, in order to make sure that your relationship stays intact and the spark between the two of you stays alive and well, there is one thing that would prove to be a favorable investment for the two of you and that is sex toys.

It may sound bizarre, but we do have a good reason behind this recommendation. You can start with something small like a remote-control vibrator and take it from there. Now, if you would like to know how something like this could help, then imagine this for an instance. You and your partner are on a video call together, with your partner dressed in your favorite naughty lingerie and are immensely into each other right now. At such a time, when you cannot physically please your partner, a remote-controlled vibrator can come in handy. You can not only watch your partner play with themselves, using the vibrator, but you can join in by controlling the intensity of the vibrator, slowing it down or putting it all the way up to drive your partner insane.

It comes with the added benefit of reminding your partner and giving them a pleasant memory to look back at if and when they choose to feel themselves using that vibrator once again, and they get to feel closer to you, even with the lack of physical intimacy that the two of you are craving.

Features To Look For


For most women, noise is a make or break factor for their sex toys. If a toy is noisy, most women try their best to steer clear of it. Basically, there are two reasons women buy remote controlled toys. 1) They plan to hand the remote to someone else. 2) They want to use it on the go. If you’re a woman belonging to the latter category, sound is a crucial factor. A remote controlled vibrator should be completely silenced. Even a slight buzzing could give away what’s happening in those pants. And trust us when we say this, your facial expressions should be the only thing that give away the vibrator, not the noise.

The range of play is another most important factor and this feature varies from one woman to the other. If you plan to use the vibrator yourself, then a device with a small range of just two or three feet, or even one with a wire might suffice. If you plan to use it as foreplay, a range of at least 15 feet is a decent idea. But, if you’re going all out with the distance, then you should get a vibrator meant for long distant play. These products usually have apps associated with them. Make sure you get the right range, otherwise your sexual play will just be countless hours of struggling with the remote / app to get connectivity.


If it’s a clit massager, then the quality doesn’t matter that much. It does matter a bit, but not as much as when we’re talking about an interior vibrator. If you plan to use it on the inside, make sure you get a toy with a great quality material. Usually silicone is a great option. But, whatever material you like, make sure you get something a little expensive. Cheap materials work out sometimes, but they’re just a hassle to clean, use and maintain for a long time, and at the same time, they don’t last very long. So, it’s better to spend some cash once and on something worthy of the amount.

  1. Lovense Lush

The Lovense Lush is one of the best selling products from the manufacturers and it’s truly a marvel of a product. The design is pretty uncanny. There an oval shaped section with the vibrator and then a small stick extending outwards. This stick is the reason why Lush is so popular. Basically, even the best of the best vibrators have connection problems at times, especially when the toy is deep in there. But, Lovense aimed to completely get rid of this issue by extending an antenna outwards in a way that creates reliable connections and doesn’t get in the way at the same time.

The second great thing about Lush would be its design. The device is curved in a way that it hits the G-spot at the perfect angle and creates an amazing sensation exactly where you need them.  You can purchase the Lush here.


  • An extremely powerful device
  • The extended antenna ensures seamless connectivity.
  • Premium quality silicone
  • A long list of settings available at the app


  • A bit stronger vibrations in the tail could really elevate the device. However, this is, by no means, a con.

Thus, when LoveHoney decided to come up with their very own pair of remote-controlled vibrating panties, what could serve as a better inspiration for both the product and the title then Fifty Shades Freed.

Whilst remote control vibrators are great and as versatility to your play, they’re not as good as my top rated vibrators.

An honorable mention must go to the Lelo Ida.
