The 9 Best Remote Control Vibrators for Lovin’ at a Distance
Because being in a long-distance relationship shouldn't stop you from having sex.
Vibrators have been around for a very long time. And when we imagine them, we most likely picture classics like the ever-favored Rabbit that gained popularity from appearing on Sex and the City. Of course, classics like those deserve their buzz (pun intended), but as with any other technology, vibrators have advanced a fair amount in recent years and now have features even the Jetsons would never have imagined possible.
One particularly innovative category of vibrators is remote-controlled. These toys come in various forms and functions but can be operated or controlled remotely (via either an actual remote or an app), from across the room or across the world.
A remote-control vibrator can be an amazing asset in maintaining that all-important physical connection in long-distance relationships. It adds another dimension to phone or cyber/video sex, which makes playtime a truly interactive experience, even when you can’t be in the same room. So ready to knock some boots?
The 9 best remote control vibrators
To the casual observer, this looks like many other vibrators. It’s well-sized (about 7.5 inches) and has a strong mix of vibrations, from gentle to high. Your partner can have their own toy (the Pearl for a female partner, or the Onyx, which is the male equivalent from this line) and connect via the FeelConnect app for Android and iOS. When you aren’t using it with a partner, this one works just fine for solo play, too.

This vibe is tiny, but don’t let that fool you—it packs some serious punch. It gets tucked into panties (and actually comes with a free pair) and comes with a remote that works up to 20 feet away, which is great if you’re looking to keep some distance for discretion or just for fun. But that’s not all; it also has an added interactive element, where the built-in microphone will pick up on the vibration of the partner’s voice (or music you’re listening to as you play) and set its own vibration to match that particular rhythm. There are also pre-set vibrations, available for anyone who is not feeling the music. But if the sound of your partner’s “bedroom voice” really gets you going, this is the right toy for you.

The Lelo Lyla is another remote-control bullet vibrator but it has a bit more range—just over 100 feet.

What’s cool is that this one has SenseMotion, which means your partner controls the intensity of the vibrator by moving the remote. It’s like being a conductor of an orchestra. This one can be worn externally or internally, so it all depends on which variant of vibrating panties work best for you.
