What is the Difference Between Dildos and Vibrators?

The very basic answer is that vibrators use batteries (whether rechargeable or not) to vibrate and dildos just don’t. But lets explore this a little deeper.

We all know that for as long as humans have been having sex, they have also used sex toys. Penis shaped objects carved by hand have been discovered by archaeologists dating back up to 30 000 years. These toys were crafted from all manner of materials, including stone, wood, bone, clay and even Ivory. These days however, a lot more science goes into making a new sex toy and they still come in a variety of materials, colors, shapes and sizes. Despite the years of history, the two most popular types of sex toys are still Dildos and Vibrators.

But What is the Difference Between Dildos and Vibrators you ask? This is a question we get asked daily in an adult shop and that we answer in full below.

What are Dildo’s?

Dildo’s are made to resemble or simulate the Penis during sex, so they are Phallic shaped sex toys often times looking like very realistic copies of the real thing. They come in a variety of materials ranging from silky soft Silicone to 24ct gold. And generally they DON’T vibrate.

Dildos are made to be used on their own but are often designed with a flared or suction cup base that fits into a strapon herness. Strap-on Dildos are particularly popular amongst lesbian couples and couples interested in pegging (What is Pegging?), there are also hollow strap-on dildos and various double penetration style dildos.

What is a Vibrator?

Vibrators are just that, toys that are made to stimulate you sexually using vibration. They run using batteries, or are nowadays more commonly rechargeable. This is the biggest difference between dildos and vibrators. Some vibrators, often referred to as G-Spot vibrators are meant to be inserted vaginally or anally and others are only meant to stimulate you externally, like bullet vibrators, clitoral stimulators or vibrating massagers. 

Vibrators can be shaped like a penis, but are not limited to any specific shape or size. It’s a fairly broad term covering sex toys that vibrate. Realistic vibrators are very popular but so are vibes that look nothing like a real penis at all.
