Guide to Self-Propelled Thrusting Dildos & Thrusting Rabbit Vibrators

The thrusting dildos I’ll discuss are mini fucking machines—but less expensive, easier to store, and easier to position than a quality sex machine (one that’ll last and not stall out with heavy use). And as for thrusting rabbit vibrators: I’ll rank those a little differently, for vibration quality too. (Also check out my guide to rotating dildos and rotating rabbits if you’re looking for spinning options instead!)

Riding a suction cup dildo hands-free can be great, but if you’re like me, sometimes you just want someone else to do the work for you. A thrusting dildo or vibrator makes this possible even if you’re playing solo. This updated guide to body-safe *silicone* moving dildos and thrusting vibrators covers three distinct toy types: (1) Fun Factory Stronic jiggly pulsating dildos, (2) handheld thrusting machines like the Velvet Thruster Mini and the vibrating Maia Max/Monroe, and (3) silicone-coated thrusting rabbit vibrators.

All these toys thrill me—a huge fan of motion + penetration—and they all have their own strengths and weaknesses. That’s why I’ve tried to consider: Which would I choose if I was the average buyer, looking to purchase just one for myself? What’s the best thrusting dildo??? It’s a hard call! Jump to each toy’s comparative review to see how it stacks up for speed, thrust length, noise level, and price. Or read the next section for a quick recap!

Best Of

  • Powerful thrusting: Velvet Thrusters, hands down. The Velvet Mini Teddy is quieter & easier to position than the original Velvet Thruster models (like Jackie).
  • Easiest to use: Fun Factory Stronics, because of their convenient size, low noise level, & waterproof-ness.
  • Best budget option: Maia Max & Monroe, for $99.1 Not-bad thrust speed plus OK vibes, a remote control, & an adjustable suction cup. Also my fave anal option. (And hey, the Inya Deep Stroker is even cheaper at $69.99: check it out if you’re good with a nonrealistic shape & less-rumbly vibes.) Any cheaper than this, and you’ll be getting less-safe materials (just say “no” to porous TPE dildos) and/or weaker thrusting power.
  • Dual stimulation: Want clit stimulation too? Lovehoney’s Happy Rabbit Thrusting is the best body-safe bunny that thrusts.

Thrusting Dildos

Here are my top choices for self-propelled penetration! All are anal-safe except the Fun Factory Stronics (option #2).

Velvet Thruster Mini Teddy Thrusting Dildo (10/10 Stars)

It is 100% possible to make a good thing EVEN BETTER, Velvet Co. has shown me with the new Velvet Thruster Mini, nicknamed Teddy.

The Velvet Thruster Mini:

  • is much easier to hold than the original Velvet Thrusters (like Jackie, the most popular),
  • is considerably quieter, and
  • heats up less during use!

The Velvet Thruster Mini Teddy has a shorter (and less flexible) shaft too. I prefer how Jackie’s shaft bends more, and Jackie has about 30% more speed, but…it’s hard to argue with Teddy’s more convenient size & simpler button control. See my video comparison between the two models here, and here’s a size comparison of the Velvet Thruster Mini Teddy (top) vs. Velvet Thruster Jackie (bottom):

Plus, Mini Teddy can be suction-cupped to smooth, flat surfaces. I think it’s mind-blowing when stuck on top of a T.O.M. dildo mount: truly the laziest hands-free fucking setup out of all the options in my collection.

Or, FOR THE MOST REALISTIC THRUSTING DILDO IN EXISTENCE (rating: 11 out of 10): stick a VixSkin soft silicone sheath (Holster or Colossus) on Teddy to create a big self-propelled toy. My enthusiasm for this dual-density thrusting dildo is through the roof: it’s my favorite sex toy setup in my over-$19,000 collection. Find the VixThrust combo here.

Thrust info: 2″ max. stroke length (like mid-range strokes during penetrative sex); up to 120 strokes per minute; 6 steady speeds
Price: $135 here

Fun Factory Stronic Thrusting Pulsators (10/10 Stars)

The Stronic pulsators are the best-known thrusting dildos on the market. The Stronics pulse back and forth rather than vibrate—watch them move in my video here. There are currently 4 different Stronic shapes (the original three: Stronic Eins/One, Stronic Drei, and Stronic Zwei, have now been discontinued):

Fun Factory Stronic G Stronic Real Stronic Surf Pulsator comparison shot

From top to bottom: Stronic Real, Stronic Surf, & Stronic G.

Compared to fucking machines and true thrusters, the Stronics have a subtle movement. They do move extremely fast on the higher rhythms, but they wiggle in and out rather than really screw. That’s why, in the end, I have to disagree with Fun Factory’s claim that the (now discontinued) Stronic Eins “authentically mimics sexual thrust movements.” This is only true if you have a lover who doesn’t go deep or hard, ever (and who can go at super speed too!).

Many people will prefer the Stronics’ shorter stroke length because it’s gentle, yet insistent. The Stronic Real is mind-blowing for me because its quick little pulsations keep me on the edge of orgasm for up to ten minutes at a time, until I’m forced to give in and thrust it a little by hand—leading to an explosive climax. And these pulsating dildos are much easier to use while holding a clit vibe than a full-speed thrusting dildo is.

The Stronics have a couple huge advantages over full-on thrusting dildos: They’re fully waterproof (since they don’t require a hole to vent air); they *may* be used totally hands-free (depending on the user’s anatomy; more on that here); and they’re quiet. You can easily hide their noise with just a blanket, vs. the louder sounds that true thrusting dildos produce.

Thrust info: A little under ½” jiggle length; ≈120 to over 200 strokes per minute; 4 constant speeds & 6 pulsing patterns; super-quiet & lightweight

Velvet Thrusters (9/10 Stars)

The original Velvet Thrusters are now discontinued. The most popular model, Jackie, is in the process of being revamped. It will return to my thrust guide once it’s back in production—because I love these toys with all “the power of a full sized fucking machine,” in handheld form.

Maia Max & Monroe Thrusting Dildos (8.5/10 Stars)

The Max (black) & Monroe (purple) thrusters—the same toy, in different colors—by Maia Toys offer a smooth, nonphallic shape and a shorter length (5″ insertable) than other thrusters in this guide.3 I think this makes Max easier to hold, plus more anal-friendly. (Though maybe that’s partly because my butt likes it smaller!)Maia Max Anal Thrusting Dildo Suction Cup Remote Control

I think the Maia Max’s motor is pretty good. The three thrusting speeds don’t offer as much variety as the Velvet Thrusters. But given Max’s much lower price point, I’m quite pleased with these speeds: from 60 to 100 thrusts per minute.

And beyond the thrusting, Max vibrates too—that function is independently controllable from the thrusting. Out of the three steady vibration intensities, the first is fairly low-powered and has some rumble to it; the second is pretty powerful, and starting to buzz a bit; and the third is definitely buzzy. When I match the second steady vibe intensity with the second steady thrusting rhythm, Max makes me happy. (And it makes me ecstatic when I want larger penetration and I stick a VixSkin soft silicone sheath on it.)

Especially because Max is so texture-less, I need a little more stimulation to orgasm vaginally, so the vibrations really help; and anally, the power just feels nice around my asshole.

There are also cool extras, like on the Pipedream Fantasy for Her thruster (discussed next): an adjustable suction cup and a remote control. Positioning Max’s suction cup was a learning experience for me—but I figured it out pretty quick! (Just don’t try to move the suction cup around while actually using the toy!!!)

Max/Monroe do share one big downside with the original Velvet Thrusters: it’s pretty damn loud, possibly even a little worse than the Velvets. I need to invest in ear plugs, I’m thinking.

Thrust info: About 2.25″ stroke length; 60 to 100 strokes per minute; 3 thrust speeds + 10 vibe functions (3 steady, 7 patterns); remote control included
Price: $99 at Peepshow Toys with code FELICITY | $100 at SheVibe

NS Novelties Inya Deep Stroker Thrusting Dildo (7.5/10 Stars)

The NS Inya Deep Stroker stands out for one huge reason: it’s the cheapest good thrusting dildo around. With 2 inches total stroke length, it’s actually a realistic range of motion. (The original Velvet Thrusters’ 3 inches sometimes seems like a lot!)

The Inya Stroker-thruster has a super-satiny finish that I love, and the thick accordion folds aren’t pinchy at all. This is a less-realistic shape, with textures that I can only describe as “interesting.” (They’re hard to see in pictures, but they’re almost totem-pole-like!) I find those abstract textures very gentle.

The Inya Deep Stroker includes three thrust speeds, and, like Max Max/Monroe, it vibrates too. Unfortunately, Inya’s vibe quality is buzzier—doesn’t penetrate deeply—than the Maia toys’ vibes. (It also has no remote control or adjustable suction cup.) The short base is easy to hold, though I had to learn to not accidentally change speeds mid-use while tightening my grip as Inya did thrust deep in me!

For only $70, I think the NS Inya Deep Stroker offers a lot of positive features. If you don’t need the deepest vibrations or a realistic shape, it’s a good deal.

Thrust info: 2″ stroke length; ≈90 to 110 strokes per minute; 3 thrust speeds & 10 vibration functions (3 steady speeds + 7 patterns)
Price: $69.99 here

Other options that didn’t quite make the best-of list, but that have positive points about them:

Best Thrusting Rabbit Vibrators

Thrusting rabbits aim to do even more: stimulate your clit while their heads thrust in and out. With these toys, the shafts as a whole need to stay in place to ensure steady clitoral contact. As a result, they won’t have the stroke length of the thrusting dildos above: they’re best for shallower G-spot stimulation.

Thrusting vibrators best rabbit vibrators

From left to right: (1) Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Thrusting; (2) CalEx Orange County Cutie; (3) Blush Lush Iris; (4) FemmeFunn Essenza; and (5) BMS Commotion Cha Cha.

I’ll rate the vibes in these body-safe bunnies’ ears on a 10-point scale for power and rumbliness, so you can measure them against other toys in my comprehensive vibrator guides! See the full chart at the end for detailed info on speed & stroke length too.

Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Thrusting

This bunny ranks first because it has the longest stroke length, about three-quarters an inch! I thought it wasn’t possible for me to enjoy rabbit vibes, and then I got off hard on this one—so Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Thrusting has it going on, as far as I’m concerned.

With its jutting coronal ridge, the Happy Rabbit Thrusting gives my G-spot lots of attention—more than the finger-like heads in most other rabbits here. I would definitely buy this shaft shape in a full-size thrusting dildo.

The external stimulator is a classic bunny shape, with wide ears. They sit right above my clitoral hood, and I can feel the vibes really traveling through my internal clit. I like this classic ear shape, but widened, most because I dig the broad stimulation.

And as for the vibes? Happy Rabbit’s first vibe speed starts stronger than the FemmeFunn Ultra Bullet—a measurement of power for me. Overall, Happy Rabbits aren’t as rumbly as the renowned We-Vibe Tango, but—especially on the lowest 2 (of 3) steady speeds, they have a good depth. The only real inconvenience with Happy Rabbit? There are 12 vibe functions all controlled through one button, so you have to cycle all the way around to go down one intensity level. Overall, Happy Rabbit has good thrusting power and vibes for a reasonable price compared to other body-safe thrusting vibes.

Thrust info: About 0.75″ stroke length; 3 thrust functions, from 70 to 115 thrusts per minute
Vibration quality: 7 out of 10 for power; 8 out of 10 for rumbliness on low, 7 out of 10 for rumbliness on high.
Price: $69.99 here

Other Thrusting Rabbit Vibrators

Happy Rabbit Thrusting is a good one…but these bunnies all offer something a little different—from flickering clit stim, to pulsing air, to pulsating shafts.

  • CalExotics California Dreaming Orange County Cutie Thrusting Rabbit is a great toy if you like intensely pinpoint/flippy sensations against your clit (rather than Happy Rabbit’s classic clit-surrounding ears). Orange County Cutie has a slightly shorter stroke length than Happy Rabbit Thrusting, but the second speed feels like it’s really kneading my G-spot (in a good way). And the external arm’s motion is a crazy flapping on the top speed, and a few of the patterns! I find myself liking the alternating/escalating functions more in this toy than most. Orange County Cutie’s shaft is slightly slimmer than Happy Rabbit, and more tapered, and some users may find that more comfortable.
  • Blush’s Lush Iris is two hot sex toy trends rolled into one: self-propelled thrusting and air pulsation clit stim! Iris’ shaft thrusts in a spinning-kinda way. Its soft head is lined with ripples underneath, for more texture. This air-blowing bunny gets pretty strong (of course not Womanizer-Premium powerful!) in the clit section. Lush Iris’ external arm is very straight and hard, so there’s little adjustability: your clit-to-vag distance will need to be “average” for the best fit.
  • FemmeFunn Essenza reminds me a lot of the Commotion Cha Cha (next) but with a *slightly* wider shaft and a shorter, solid clit arm. The body is quite pliable, squeezable, which is great. The pulsing is speedy-speedy on the top levels, and the last one gets loud! Essenza’s clit arm is pretty flexible (but again, short). For the $200 price tag, I wish the vibes in the clit section were a touch more intense. Overall, it’s a cute toy, and well put together. I’d recommend it more highly if it went for $150 or less.
  • BMS Commotion Cha Cha is the equivalent of a Fun Factory Stronic pulsator in rabbit form. It wiggle-jiggles. FAST. Cha Cha’s curved tip is like a finger fluttering at super speed against the G-spot. (See a demo of it in motion vs. Happy Rabbit Thrusting here.) Unfortunately, it’s also significantly noisier than the Stronics, especially on the last couple speeds. Cha Cha biggest selling point? Its external arm is very flexible, so it’ll fit pretty much any clit-to-vag distance. Since this is a BMS Factory toy, and I’m used to the Pillow Talk Sassy’s and the PalmPower Extreme’s kick-ass vibes, I was expecting the clit arm to really rock my world—but perhaps there’s only so much power you can fit into such a tiny area. Cha Cha’s strength is pretty good, especially along with the thrusting, but no PalmPower.

      Thanks!!! And there are new thrusting toys being released, so I’ll keep updating it!

    I’m actually really glad you started out with a break-down of straight-up fucking machines; I still think I’ll end up getting one because I LOVE dildos but rarely use them because I’m so supremely lazy. I think the price and downsides to use would be worth it to me–but these will be excellent points to keep in mind when I start shopping around!

    I found you when I was looking for the best thrusting toys to buy. I really enjoy your reviews, you give a lot of information to help people find what’s right for them. I noticed that Velvet Cock has a new improved version called, Teddy, the new thruster mini. It looks promising but there’s no reviews yet so there’s only the little info that’s in their description. I’m not sure if you’ve checked it out yet but I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

      The Velvet Mini/Teddy became available to retailers last week, so full reviews will take a little while yet! I should be getting mine by the end of May, and I’ll be updating this guide by this time next month. I’m excited to see how it performs because it looks so much easier to hold (and honestly, 6 speeds should be enough variety for me!).

          Right, they arrived at the few online retailers who sell them two days ago! Mine just shipped. I’m looking forward to putting together a full compare-contrast with Jackie, for sure.

    Love your reviews and guides 😉
    Thank you!
    If you needed to choose between the velvet jackie and the mini version teddy, which one would you choose?
    I kind of want them both, but worried it will be a waste (will use one of them, jackie maybe?) also money wise I should probably buy only one.. will appreciate your opinion
    Thanks:)

      Thanks so much!

      It’s a hard decision. Right now I think I’d go with the Mini Teddy because I’m liking how it’s more hands-free (especially with the dildo mount setup I show here) plus the lower noise level is awesome.

      The thrust speed on Teddy isn’t quite as fast, though I usually only go up to speed #7 of 10 on Jackie anyway because the last ones are smoking! I’d recommend either one with hybrid lube, actually, to reduce friction if you wanna go fast.

          I’m a little late replying to your review so hopefully you see this lol but I have a question about the Teddy thruster noise level. Do you think a 7 out of 10 in noise could be hidden by a pillow and/or some TV. I have roommates but I love the idea of Teddy’s deep thrusts vs. fun factory’s thrusters.

          Thanks! Love how in depth your comparison reviews are.

            Hi, thanks for writing and for the compliment! So Teddy gets up to 65 decibels. Here’s a chart saying what decibel measurements roughly compare to. I tend to cover the noise by playing fast, driving music. I think TV could work if the TV noise level doesn’t cut out between scenes or commercials, etc.!
