How to Make a Vibrator Quiet

For many women, vibrators are a godsend. They provide orgasms faster, are easier to clean, and come in a variety of sizes that fit snuggly against the vulva.

But some can be loud — especially when you share your home with roommates. Fortunately, there are ways to make your vibrator quiet so no one can hear you masturbate.

Cover it up

As you’re masturbating, it’s important to keep your surroundings in mind so that no one will hear you. Luckily, there are some quick and easy ways to cover up a vibrator so it isn’t so loud during use!

A simple solution is to wrap a washcloth or t-shirt around the base of your vibrator. This will drown out the noise from the battery compartment and motor, making your toy much quieter!

Using a weighted blanket is another great way to absorb the noise of your vibrator. Simply tuck it under your sheets, and you’ll be able to comfortably masturbate without anyone knowing!

You can also try slipping your vibrator inside of your panties to muffle the sound during playtime! This is especially helpful for clit vibrators and vaginal vibes.

For those who have thin walls or roommates, using a white noise machine or fan can help mask the sound of your vibrator. Just be sure to turn it off when you’re finished – no one wants to hear your moans! If you don’t have a fan or white noise machine, simply turning on your TV or music can be a good cover up. That way, the people next door will only hear your sexy playlist or Netflix show instead of your vibrations!

Water makes it louder

While it’s true that many vibrators are quieter than others, there’s no way for any sex toy to be completely silent. Even the smallest motors produce a slight buzzing sound that could cause problems if you use it around people who aren’t expecting to hear anything. But there are ways to dampen the sound if you want to keep your sex toys whisper-quiet.

Wrapping your sex toy in a soft blanket or sleeping with it under your pillow can help muffle the sound of the vibrator. This is especially helpful if you live with roommates or other family members who might not be as thrilled about your self-pleasure as you are. You can also try slipping your panties over the base of a battery-operated vibrator, which will drown out the rattling noise of the batteries and motor.

Vibrators that are designed for clit stimulation, like the stingray-shaped Mimic Plus and rabbit-style Ina Wave, are typically quieter than other kinds of vibes. Their unique shapes make them ideal for pinpointing clit stimulation, and they’re small enough to hold between you during partnered sex.

Water is another natural noise filter that can make your vibrator much quieter, but be careful: It will amplify the sounds of the motor, too. So be sure to use your vibrator on a lower power setting if you want to take it into the tub, swimming pool or hot tub.

Place it next to your bed

While great strides have been made in taking vibrating love toys from sounding like farm machinery to a hum of a microwave, they’re still motors with engines and engines make noise. Unless you live alone, it’s unrealistic to expect that your neighbors or roommates will never hear you masturbate.

That said, there are a few things you can do to help mask your vibe’s noise when you feel like your alone time is about to get a bit too orgasmic and you don’t want to risk alerting anyone nearby.

One of the simplest ways to muffle your vibe is by placing it next to your bed. The blankets and pillows will absorb the sound of the vibration, allowing you to enjoy your time in peace without having to worry about someone else hearing you.

Another option is to place your vibe under a pillow or a towel. This can help muffle the sound even more. This works especially well for clit sucking vibrators, as the noise from the clit opening can be quite loud.

If you don’t have a pillow to cover your vibrator with, try placing it inside of a hollow extender (like the ones we carry in our Extenders section) instead. This will add nubs and a different texture to your vibrator, and the sound from the engine will be muffled by the material and the air between you and your sex toy.

Place it in a tub

If you’re really into silent masturbation (and who isn’t), there are some seriously whisper-quiet vibrators that still pack a punch. Howard recommends looking for ones made of soft materials, such as soft silicones and thermoplastic elastomer. “The squishy stuff can help absorb sounds,” she says, adding that you may also want to consider something with a wacky shape like this rabbit-shaped vibe. Its pliable wings can be pressed against the opposite wall of your vagina and the entrance of your vulva or a man’s prostate for simultaneous stimulation, while its tapered end is great for external sensations. This vibe is also super smooth and easy to clean, making it a perfect companion for your next bathtub date.

However, if you do decide to go full-on water-baby with your vibrator, keep in mind that it will be roughly four times louder in the water because of how sound travels in waves. To minimize the impact, try placing your toy in a cup or other object before getting into the tub.

If you’re looking for a vibrator that’s quiet and powerful enough to still feel good even on the highest setting, try this lipstick-sized plug with a warming function. It has two motors, one at the plug end and the other in its longer arm that reaches toward your perineum or clitoris. Position it to your liking and use it with or without a squirt of lube.
