The Ultimate Sex Machine Guide: 10 Things You Need to Know Before Buying 

Sex machines are gaining popularity by the day. It makes sense that this category of toy would follow smaller vibrators into the mainstream, as conversations about personal sexuality and fulfillment are becoming more socially acceptable. And who doesn’t want to have the best possible sex of their life? But with so many options in the market and the relatively high prices of these sex machines, they are certainly an investment you want to make wisely. To help you have your best orgasm with a sex machine and get the most out of your investment, there are certain features that you need to take into consideration before making a purchase. This article looks at what a sex machine really is and five main aspects to consider in order to make an informed decision. 

What is a sex machine?  
A sex machine is a powered device that is designed to simulate sexual intercourse. It usually has a saddle with a dildo attachment that vibrates, thrusts, or rotates to give you an experience analogous to penetrative sex. The speed of the thrusting or rotation can be controlled and altered based on what feels good to you. Designed over 30 years ago, the Sybian machine is arguably the most well-known brand of sex machine, having gained momentum after appearing on the sensational Howard Stern Show. Other brands have appeared and offer more robust features and varying experiences, such as Motorbunny, Cowgirl, and The Tremor. Some of these sex machines also feature long-distance remote control via an app which can be useful to build intimacy in long-distance relationships. For instance, you can compare Sybian and Motorbunny to see how far the category has come. 

A sex machine never gets tired, does not change the thrusting or rotating speed and direction without your instruction, and can go as fast as you like up to high speeds. You can also choose from a range of dildo attachment sizes and shapes to fit your body type. 

Features to look for in your first sex machine  
There are various sex machines available in the market today across a wide range of budgets. Each one comes with different features and attachments and frankly, it can get quite overwhelming for first-timers. To help you pick the right one here are five main aspects you should keep in mind while selecting the right sex machine:  

 

Build and material of the sex machine  
You want to select a sturdy sex machine that will hold your weight when you mount it and ride it. Especially if you are going for a thruster, you want one that has a sturdy footprint as thrusting motions and rider movement may move the machine. The hands-free Motorbunny BUCK saddle weighs only 17.4lbs but will stay stable as it powerfully thrusts in and out. It can carry the weight of two people up to 1,000 lbs at a time and is perfect for those looking to spice up their sex life with their partner.  

The other thing to keep in mind is the material of the attachments that come along with your sexual machine. They need to be made with top-quality, body-safe materials like silicone. Silicone is easy to clean and sanitize, is non-toxic, and feels amazing. Soft TPE is also a great option for those looking for more budget attachments for their sex saddles, but you may need to replace these attachments more often. 

Twirling or thrusting – what gets you going?   
Some machines offer the standard vibrating feature along with a twirling or thrusting option. Before you go ahead and buy your first sex machine, think of what brings your more pleasure, thrusting or twirling. Do you like it to buzz as it thrusts or twirls while vibrating? Both are designed for intense G-spot stimulation, but arrive at that in different ways. The best way to decide is to experiment with a hand-held vibrator first, both thrusting in and out, and leaving it fully penetrated while rotating it in broad circles.

Whether you like thrusting or twirling, your sexual machine or sex saddle is perfect for just relaxing and enjoying the vibration and the ride.

Powerful motor and high thrusting or rotating capabilities  
The motor and thrusting power of your sexual machine is important! So don’t take this one lightly. The more power your machine has, the kinkier you can get with it and the better your experience will be. Powerful machines will be able to give the thrusting or rotational power needed for that perfect and pleasurable experience that will keep you coming.   

The Motorbunny BUCK can go from 39 to 190 thrusts per minute, making the ride enjoyable and satisfying with its unmatched thrusting power and sensitive speed adjustment.

Compare the attachments  
Different sex machines come with different attachments. Some offer basic attachments to get you started and some packages offer additional attachments like restraints and kneepads to make the experience even better. The Motorbunny Original comes with a basic set of four TPE attachments, with the options to add more covers, restraints, and a wide range of 100% silicone  attachments. The Motorbunny BUCK, on the other hand, comes with 3 premium 100% silicone attachments, 2 thrust motion toggles, and a Motorbunny LINK-enabled controller that allows you to control the thrusting speed and vibration intensity via an app with pre-programmed routines. In addition, Motorbunny BUCK is the only sex machine compatible with the Doc Johnson Vac-U-Lock Adapter, giving riders virtually unlimited attachment options. 

You should also check if the sex machine allows you to add different toys and attachments so you can keep experimenting.   

Who are you going to use it with?  
Are you buying your sex machine to go solo? Or are you looking for it to add some spice to your sex life with your partner? The sex machine can be used in both situations. The Motorbunny can take the weight of two people at the same time, making it perfect for couple play. It can also be synced with a long-distance remote control so that your partner can make you orgasm even when he or she is away.   

If you’re looking to use your sexual machine solo, the Motorbunny also offers preprogrammed riding routines, music syncing, Siri voice commands, and more to help you achieve those kinky sexual machine orgasms all by yourself.   

Other factors to consider  
Some other factors to consider while making your decision include:  

Budget  
While sex machines come in a wide range of prices, you do want to invest in a good quality machine, even if they can be slightly pricey. The Motorbunny Original starts at $899 and comes with 4 basic soft TPE attachments. There are various options to upgrade your package to include more attachments.   

The Motorbunny BUCK, on the other hand, is priced at $1,549.00 and can be upgraded to include the Doc Johnson Vac-U-Lock Adapter for a wider range of attachments. It also includes the Right Angle Wedge, which allows the machine to be used for positions other than cowgirl, such as missionary and doggystyle. It is one of the best machines in the market and is the world’s first and only hybrid saddle vibrator and thrusting sex machine. This makes it one of the best investments for those looking for a good sex machine for long-term use. We promise you won’t regret treating yourself to this machine!  

Both the Motorbunny Original and the Motorbunny BUCK are also available with 0% financing options through Klarna and Sezzle that make them affordable for everyone.   

Warranties, guarantees, and certifications associated  
Your sex machine is definitely going to be a toy you play with for a long time! You want to make sure that it comes with the right warranties, guarantees, and certifications. All Motorbunny products come with a 45-day satisfaction guarantee, 5-year warranty, and a 10-year quality guarantee. Motorbunny products are compliant with RoHS, CE, and MSDS tests, and have also passed Amazon’s own approval process.  

Post-sales support  
You need to choose a company that provides outstanding after-sales support, especially if you’re investing in an expensive machine. Many things can go wrong before your sex machine even gets to you! So, make sure you pick a company that has good reviews, a fair return policy, and has high customer support ratings.   

Discreet shipping feature  
Not everyone is comfortable with displaying their kinky side to the world and many companies understand that. Motorbunny offers discreet ordering and shipping to make sure you have nothing to worry about when your portable ride-on sex machine is delivered.

FAQs about the Motorbunny sex machines  
Now let’s answer some of the most frequently asked questions about sex machines. 

Who can use sex machines?  
Men and women can both use sex machines. There are a variety of attachments designed for both men and women, and couples often enjoy taking turns.

What kind of attachments are best for beginners?  
As a beginner, it is good to start with the basic flat attachment, the TPE Versa attachment, or the 100% premium silicone Mt. Gushmore attachment. Once a rider is comfortable with the “buzz” of Motorbunny, there are many sizes and shapes of penetrative attachments to consider to bring “twirl” into play!

Can the Motorbunny products be used for anal sex and double penetration?  
With the right attachment, the Motorbunny can be used for both anal sex and double penetration.   

How expensive are the additional attachments?  
Depending on the attachment and the material, they can cost anywhere from $14.99-$34.99. Silicone attachments are more expensive than TPE attachments, but are much more durable and are easier to clean.

How can the attachments be cleaned?  
The TPE attachments can be easily cleaned with antibacterial (or mild) soap and water, or a water-based toy cleaner. Silicone attachments can be cleaned the same way, and can also be cleaned in the top rack of the dishwasher, with soap and water, or by sanitizing with a 10% bleach solution.   

Can lube be used with the sex machine? And if yes, what kind of lube can be used?  
It is recommended that you use lots of lube while using the sex machine. Use water-based lube with TPE attachments as oil-based lube can break down the material quickly. For silicone attachments, water-based lube is recommended. In no situation should silicone lubricants be used with silicone attachments as they tend to break down silicone and make it gummy.  

How can the attachments be stored?  
While storing your attachments, make sure the toys are kept separate as they can leach onto one another in storage. We recommend the Motorbunny mobility and storage case to store your attachment and sex machine.   

What makes Motorbunny different from other sex machines in the market?  
Motorbunny has various benefits over its competitors that make it the best sex machine. One of the main ones is the price point. Currently, the Motorbunny Original is one of the most affordable products available in the market. Comparable sex machines from competitors cost hundreds more. The second benefit is the design of the Motorbunny. It has been designed with quality and safety as priorities and has no exposed circuit boards. And lastly, it can be used in various fun ways, as long as you decide to get creative!  

How does the 45-day satisfaction guarantee work? 
If you are unsatisfied, you can simply just send it back within the first 45 days. You will be refunded the entire amount minus a $199 storage and inspection fee.   

How does the warranty work?  
The Motorbunny sex machine comes with a 5-year warranty for both parts and labor. However, it does not cover accidental or physical damage. After the five-year period, all sex toys can be repaired for a flat fee of $100. Accidental damage can be repaired at the cost of the customer. For repairs contact support@motorbunny.com.
