Everything you need to know about waterproof vibrators

By Ksenia Sobchak

So, you think a waterproof vibrator is simply any vibrating toy that you take in the tub? Wrong. The sex toy inventors out there put some arduous and long days of work into creating vibrators that are specially designed to have you wet, slippery and squirming with delight underwater.

What exactly is a waterproof vibrator?

For starters, a waterproof vibrator is definitely not your Cyberskin™ vibrators or any of the ultra-realistic vibrators. These vibrators are meant to look and feel like the real thing, so they are very porous. Chances are, submerging it in water for a long period of time will make the material soggy and you’ll probably ruin your vibrator.

Your waterproof vibrator is most likely going to be made from a plastic, jelly, silicone or acrylic material. These toys are tightly sealed so that water doesn’t seep into the battery casing or motor, and come in a wide variety of styles. The ever-so-popular Rabbit vibrators even have a waterproof version.

Reminders about waterproof vibrators

When playing with waterproof vibrators, it is important to remember a few things:


Although water is a great lubricant, some people might want an extra slippery feeling. The best lubricants to use underwater are those that are silicone-based. But, watch out. If your vibrator is made of silicone, you won’t be able to use a silicone-based lubricant because it will degrade the material.

After Use

Even though the toy is waterproof, you should still dry it off and remove the batteries after your wet adventure. You don’t want to ruin your toy in any way.

Other things to consider when choosing a waterproof vibrator

Something else to consider is that playing with your vibrator underwater is considerably louder. The reason being is that sound is carried in waves and these waves are largely amplified by water. As one woman said, she used her Waterdancer™ vibrator in the same room as her husband and he didn’t hear it. When she moved into the bathroom and used it in the tub, her husband could hear the sound three rooms away. We all know that no vibrator is a silent one, so when choosing a waterproof toy, if you can, test how loud it is.

Like all other battery-operated vibrators, waterproof vibrators are not going to last your entire lifetime. While wet-and-wild fun might feel extra tingly, be careful not to run out the motor. Remember, your toy is doing double work while it is submerged in water.

Lastly, for those of you that need or want to keep your vibrator use discreet, waterproof sex toys have a few styles that look just like kiddie bath time buddies. There’s a Ducky™, a Wormie™, flowers and even a Frisky Fishie™ and Playful Penguin™ with their own display stand. It’s a new way to get clean for you, but for anyone taking a trip to the john, they will think your vibrators are just pleasant bathroom decorations.

So there you have it, a world of vibrators under the sea. Dive in!
