What is a coil vibrator?

Short Answer: A coil vibrator is an electric vibrator that uses spinning electromagnetic coils to produce vibrations. They tend to be very quiet, and powerful but focused.



Long Answer: Coil vibrators usually look something like a hair dryer. They have a grip with a switch, and a vibrating head that comes out at a 90 degree angle. They are marketed as massagers, rather than as sex toys, and Wahl is probably the best-known and most reliable maker of this type of device.

Because they use spinning electromagnetic coils to create their vibrations, rather than a motor, they run very quietly and smoothly, and usually have a couple of speeds. They produce a very concentrated, or localized vibration, so if you like a lot of direct and intense clit stimulation, a coil vibrator may hit your happy spot. They usually come with attachments that can disperse the vibrations somewhat, and dildo or twig-shaped silicone attachments are available through some sex toy outlets. If you buy insertable attachments, make sure they are specified as fitting coil or "Wahl-type" vibrators, as many similar attachments are made for the Hitachi Magic Wand.

The drawbacks of the coil vibrator are that it may be too intense for some people, and it can get hot if used for a prolonged period of time. However, mechanically, they are very dependable and can last a very long time, tending to break down and wear out less often because the coil mechanism has fewer moving parts and less internal friction than a motor.
