We've come a Long Way from Vibrating Panties

When it comes to remote controlled sex toys, the ol’ vibrating knickers is probably the stereotype. They’ve been around for decades and open the door for all kinds of misunderstandings and shenanigans - which makes them a popular comedy plot device. As seen here, in the 2009 film The Ugly Truth. The film generally is a sexist trashfire, but the female protagonist losing the remote to her vibrating underwear while at an important business meeting does make for a funny, cringe-inducing scene.

 Even in the last ten years since the movie was made, remote control sex toys have stepped up their game considerably. Today, we’re going to look at how far they’ve come and talk you through some of our favourites.

  1. Instead of having to invest in a pair of literal underwear, these days you can find all kinds of remote control vibes at all different price points. We love the Loving Joy Remote Control Wireless Egg and the Spirit Anal Plug with Remote Control. If you’re hoping to try out a remote controlled toy (either anally or vaginally) these toys can’t be beat for dependability at a lower price point.
  2. Another cool thing that’s changed about remote control toys is that they’re no longer just for female bodied people. You can get all kinds of penis oriented vibrators for example the Main Squeeze Original Vibro Pussyor the Spirit Vibrating Remote Control Cock Ring. Now, based on basic anatomy we reckon they’ll be a little bit harder to use in public than the vibrating panties but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
  3. One vibe that is definitely on our Christmas list this year is the We-Vibe Unite Couples Vibrator- it’s a remote-controlled vibrator that can be used by both partners at once! Another step up from the girl wearing the underwear and the guy holding the remote
  4. Remote Control vibes are high-tech now too! The We -Vibe Nova Combi Rabbit Duel Stimis controlled by an app on your smartphone. You can build custom vibration patterns and control the toy from anywhere in the world. One for the long distance relationships maybe.
  5. These days, remote control vibes are not just limited to your knickers. They’ve gotten bigger and more intense like The Cowgirl Premium Sex Machine. This thing is a monster; it rotates and vibrates and each function is individually fully remote controlled. We also think it would make a great feature in your bedroom. Statement furniture is in, we’ve heard.
