Waterproof Vibrator Perks

Waterproof Vibrator Perks

waterproof vibrator can quickly become your best buddy – perfect for a little bit of me-time when you need to get away from flatmates, kids or parents. Lock them all out by locking yourself into the bathroom; run a warm bath and relax into the warm water with a waterproof vibrator. 

A waterproof vibrator is specially designed to be - well, waterproof!

The battery/charge compartments are sealed to make it watertight. Submerging a non-waterproof vibrator into a bath is not recommended; the vibe will go *pop* and end your hot-tub fun.

Make sure to read the Tech Spec before ordering a new vibrator, especially if you want a 100% waterproof vibe for bathtime shenanigans! 

Should I use lube with my vibrator in the bath or shower? 

Water washes away your natural juices, so using lube will help keep moves sensual and friction-free. Of course, this depends on how and where you are playing. 

For purely clitoral stimulation in the bath or jacuzzi, the water will wash away everything. In this case, adding a drizzle of lube is pointless. Instead, press your vibrator to your clitoris or vulva area and let the vibrations and warm water combine to work their magic. 

For penetrative play or gliding your vibrator over your clitoris and vulva (in the shower, for instance), you will need lube. This will help avoid the distinctly un-sensual prospect of squeaky sex. 

If you use a toy that’s made from hard plastic or glass, we’d recommend a silicone lube as it’ll stay slick throughout your session.

Silicone lube is the best lube for all water play, whether with toys, fingers or partners. But, take note: Everything silicone lube touches becomes and stays slippery, including tiles, bath rims and floors. Be careful to apply only where necessary, and clean up any spills to avoid a passion-halting and potentially dangerous bathroom tumble.

With silicone and elastomer waterproof vibrators, silicone lube is not recommended. Combining the two silicones can, over time, potentially damage the smooth surface of your toy as the material can react to the silicone lube. So, for these vibrator materials, we recommend using a thick, water-based lube like Sh! Pure Plus, as it has more staying power.


Are rechargeable, waterproof vibrators better than battery-operated vibrators?

Because the lid to the battery compartment is such a tight (watertight!) seal and can be tricky to open or close, especially if you have a weakened grip or arthritis, for example. If this is the case, a rechargeable waterproof vibrator is a better option.
