WHICH IS THE QUIETEST VIBRATOR?

How loud can a vibrator be? How can one distinguish between loud sound vibrators from quiet ones? This article explains some of the quietest vibrators on the market. 

A vibrator can't be completely silent, but some vibrators make less noise than others. Some of the quietest vibrators include luxurious vibrators, rechargeable vibrators, bullet vibrators, and silicon vibrators. Read this article to find out which vibrators are the quietest.

Most people who want privacy while using a vibrator would not want a noisy vibrator. Imagine having a vibrator that is so loud that you cannot use it at home because your kids will wonder what you are up to. Or wanting to include the vibrator in sex with your partner, but you are distracted by the vibrator because it sounds like a chainsaw. Isn't it nice if you can use a vibrator under your sheets that your roommate does not even know? Old-fashioned vibrators tend to be the noisiest. Nowadays, manufacturers are keen on making vibrators as discreet as possible because that's what most consumers want when they go searching for the perfect vibrator. The following are vibrators that you should consider purchasing if you are looking for the quietest vibrator;

Luxurious Vibrators

These are also known as designer vibrators. Wilner & Huff (2017) explained that the manufacturers of these vibrators work tirelessly to ensure that their vibrators suit almost every need their customers would expect of a vibrator. Discretion comes on top of the manufacturer's priority. There can not be discretion with noise; hence, most luxurious vibrators have speed, volume, and vibration settings. 

Rechargeable Vibrators

GABARDO et al. (2017) explained that rechargeable toys tend to be more silent than battery-charged vibrators because the batteries emit that rattling sound. Mains-powered vibrators are notoriously loud. Cheap vibrators generally make the most noise, but if you want a cheap and silent vibrator, make sure that the batteries are rechargeable. If you go for the cheap, battery-charged vibrators, they will be noisy as it is a guarantee.

Silicon Vibrators

If a vibrator is made of silicone material, chances are high you'll cope with the sound it will produce because silicon tends to muffle out the noise, and it keeps the motor low. Silicon material is very popular among shoppers interested in luxurious or designer vibrators. Entwistle et al. (2018) explained that silicon is popular because the material is non-porous and easy to clean. It is safe for use because the genital areas are sensitive. But individuals like the material more because its vibrators are not loud. When you shop for vibrators that are made of silicon, you will indirectly be shopping for discretion.

A  Vibrator With Several Volume Settings

There's nothing worse than a noisy vibrator with no volume or vibration settings. A vibrator that you cannot control is a nightmare. It is common for cheap vibrators to be noisy. Beginners who buy these vibrators feel that they are learning their lesson very soon that a vibrator that has no settings is a nightmare; the next time they go shopping for a vibrator, they will buy a vibrator with several settings to at least pick the vibrations they want, and at the volume that they want. 

A USB Powered Vibrator

Most people generally shop for vibrators and want to know how they are powered. They want to know if the vibrator uses rechargeable or motor batteries and whether the vibrator is corded or cordless. That is how these USB-powered vibrators came into play. The manufacturers wanted to create something discreet and hassle-free. You place it in any USB portal, and it charges. No one can even tell that it is a vibrator. The best deal about USB-powered vibrators is that they are silent. It may cost you more than a classic vibrator, but it's a small price to pay when you consider the benefits you gain from purchasing this small vibrator.

Vibrators Made of Gold and Silver

According to Fletcher & Cooper (2018), a vibrator coated with gold and silver is a high-end vibrator, and it comes with all the good things you would want in a vibrator in this context, and they are usually almost silent. If you like loud vibrators, there are settings for you to get whatever you want from them. 

Remote-controlled Vibrators

Instead of fumbling for the settings button on your vibrator, the remote control does everything you want it to do for you, including controlling the vibrations, the speed, and the volume. You get to decide whether you want to be discreet or not with your remote control. Technology is stepping into the sex toy world to ensure that users have the most fun possible with sex toys.

Bullet Vibrators

Rossolatos (2017) stated that bullet vibrators are small external vibrators meant for the clitoris. They have been described as tiny but mighty because they transmit powerful vibrations. They are as small as the noise they give. Although a vibrator may be small yet produces the loudest noise but not the case with bullet vibrators.

USB Rechargeable Vibrators

USB rechargeable vibrators were meant to be discreet. You wouldn't even suspect that it is a vibrator from their appearance; thus, they are also quiet. 

Vibrations with Silent Motors

The buzzing or rumbling sound comes from the motors. The sound produced will be determined by the quality of the motors. If the motors are of low quality, you'll complain about your vibrator being very noisy. You'll probably need to dig deeper into your pocket to buy a vibrator with good-quality motors. Sometimes the number of motors in the vibrator matters. The more the motors, the less the noise, especially if the motors are of good quality. 

Conclusion

Some people do not mind how loud or quiet a vibrator is. Some people are interested in knowing if a vibrator is functional and noisy, so they come up with ideas to muffle the noise, like using a vibrator while under the covers or placing a blanket under the door to ensure no sound leaves the room. But for the ones that would love to have the quieter vibrators, it could be a matter of quality. Vibrators of the lowest quality will be loud, so they are usually cheap. If you want a quiet vibrator, it may cost you more than you budgeted, but it will give you the peace you yearn for in owning a quiet vibrator.
