Velvet Mini Teddy
The best thrusting dildo

Mini Teddy does one thing really great - it thrusts up to 2.5" in length and the motor goes up to 125 strokes per minute while being fairly quiet.

On top of that there's a suction cup allowing hands-free experience, shaft is bendy (30 degrees).

It doesn't vibrate or rotate - but it has incredible thrusts! If you want higher realism, consider adding Vixskin penis sleeve on top of it (explained further in guide)

Our Pick

LoveHoney Happy Rabbit
Good functionality for price

This thrusting sex toy does a lot: it vibrates, it thrusts 1" and has a separate motor for those rabbit ears allowing you to control both sensations separately.

It's not great in any of things but really good at many. For $55 it's quite a steal. Explore other Happy Rabbit dildo variations for G-spot targeting or rotations.

Introduction To Thrusting Sex Toys

Everyone knows that fucking machines are the best when it comes to simulating the most realistic and deepest thrusting action, but it is quite a leap to take:

  • You need more space to use it or hide it. 
  • It's not that spontaneous if you need to hide it away each time
  • even $360 for a fucking machine is one of the biggest sex toy investments.

Thankfully thrusting dildos are getting better and, for example, with Velvet Mini Teddy you'll get 2.5" thrust which is enough to simulate quite a realistic thrusting experience.

Sure, it's not gonna be as deeply filling, but for the size & spontaneity, it's actually a good tradeoff.

Top it off with Vixen Colossus penis sleeve and you get a girthy and very realistic penis. 


What You Should Know About Thrusting Dildos?

First of all, it's good to identify four main categories that go under this category.

showing what makes a good thrusting vibrator

Some dildos have one, two or even three of these functionalities and it's important that you identify which ones you care the most about:

  • thrusting dildo — this is what you're primarily here for. You want the dildo that would do the thrusting for you allowing you to just enjoy the ride. Just the thing is that some dildos that are marketed as “thrusting” dildos are actually pulsating dildos. Meaning, they don't thrust back and forth, they wiggle back and forth. Know the difference.
  • pulsating dildo — while thrusting dildos usually get to 1" — 2.5" thrust, pulsating dildos like Fun Factory Stronic wiggle back and forth only about 0.3"-0.5". It's not worse, it's just a different feeling. To understand what you like better, it's best to check demo videos and just pick which one looks more attractive. Unfortunately, you'll need to test both to know for sure.
  • vibrating dildo — quite a lot of thrusting dildos have additional functionality of vibrating. Especially thrusting rabbit dildos often have separate bunny ear motor for better customisability.
  • rotating dildo — some G-spot or P-spot has rotating heads to allow great targeted spot sensations. While it's more popular with butt toys — like prostate massagers (Nexus Revo) or Lovense Hush rotating butt plug some dildos have it too. And yes, you can use prostate massagers for G-spot massage. If you want a rotating dildo… specifically designed for vaginal play, there are no high-quality silicone options. There's only one that we found: LoveHoney Happy Rabbit Beaded ($120). A better alternative would be FunFactory Stronic G, which has targeted pulsating functionality for the G spot.

Choosing The Right Material For The Thrusting Dildo

Yes, I know it's tempting to check Amazon and find a decent (dare I say — cheap) prices there.

But Amazon, Aliexpress or eBay is a bad idea because sex toys aren't regulated by the FDA, and you can find plenty of counterfeit products there.

bad thrusting and rotating dildo examples on sites like amazon

Why is it bad?

Well, do you really want to save some bucks and put your health in danger? 

You might get lucky in this gamble, but bets are highly against it.

You might even read the reviews, but most of them are fake or paid.

What's the point of this long intro when you just wanted to find out what's the best material for thrusting dildo?

Well, the only good material for thrusting dildos is silicone.

And you'll find only body-safe, non-porous silicone recommendations in this guide.

Avoid anything that's jelly, TPE, ABS plastic, rubber — you might be fine, but you also might get bad reactions, rashes after using the toy.

Also, these materials are porous, meaning that they over time will harbor more and more bacteria and you cannot fully sanitize these toys since they're not safe for boiling. (silicone, medical-grade steel, borosilicate glass is safe).

But on Amazon, even if you look for silicone toys, there's no guarantee that's what you'll actually receive. Because there is no FDA control, then really there's no liability for these Amazon sellers.

Specialized sex shops are different. 

They need long-term customers, and if they do weird stuff they are quickly exposed.

We only included silicone toys from trusted sex shops like Lovehoney, Shevibe, etc.


Important Questions To Ask Yourself Before Choosing The Thrusting Dildo

We're clear on material, but what about other things?

Here's a quick rundown of things you should look out for (we've identified most of them in comparison chart):

  • stroke length — how long is the stroke? With thrusting dildos you won't get more than 2.5" of thrust. If you want more, you need a fucking machine. But if you're okay with less thrust, you can get more budget options within $100 range and get advanced pulsating sensations.
  • is it 100% hands-free? suction cup? — how lazy do you want to get? Some toys offer a suction cup, but many don't and you might need to consider a sex toy mount like Liberator Wing, which will make it more expensive.
  • how noisy/quiet toy gets? — for many high noise levels can be a dealbreaker. The reality is that the more thrust you get, the noisier toy is. Pulsating dildos like Stronic are the most silent, but they only offer 0.5" wiggle. A quality fucking machine like Hismith is silent too, but it requires more space and costs more.
  • insertable length and girth — length might not be an issue, but sometimes girth is. Know that pretty much all thrusting dildos are pretty slim and insertable length is only around 5". Want more? Consider putting penis sleeve on top of the toy or again you need to consider a fucking machine. 
  • functionality (vibrations, pulsating, rabbit ear) — some dildos just thrust, some just vibrate, some do both. Rabbit dildos could work, but more often than not it's better it's to get a good thrusting dildo and a good clit vibrator separately. We-Vibe Tango is the best clit vibrator in business (in case you were wondering).
  • rechargeable? how long use time? — we only included USB rechargeable options in this chart. You might find cheap battery options, but they are terrible products. Most toys will work around 2–3hours.
  • how waterproof is it? — thrusting dildos, unfortunately, aren't fully waterproof because they require a hole to vent air. Only pulsating toys like FunFactory Stronic are 100% waterproof allowing use in the bath.
  • return policy? warranty? — every company has a different policy. Know that you cannot return used toy, warranty applies only on mechanical issues or manufacture defects. The safest is to test the toy before using it. Most companies do offer a limited 1-year warranty, but you need to read terms individually.
  • the user interface, ease of use, remote? — check the pictures to see where the buttons are located. This is more important if you're considering to use the thrusting dildo for anal play. But in that case, I would look for a vibrating / rotating butt plug or prostate massager.
  • budget — you do get what you pay for. Our top recommendations cost around $150. Cheapest options are in $50 range but the quality of vibrations, stroke length, it's all a lot lower. If you want a great thrusting experience, I would recommend for you to save up for Velvet Mini Teddy and in the meantime stick with simple silicone dildo and do the thrusting yourself.
functionality to look out for in pulsating dildos

As you'll see in the chart below we've listed all of these mayor considerations in a side-by-side comparison chart for easy overview.

All of these toys are made from silicone.

The best of the best, no crappy toys were included.


Consider A Sex Toy Mount For 100% Hands-Free Experience

There's nothing wrong about being lazy. After all, a simple silicone dildo does the work, but we just want to enjoy and relax.

Well, even thrusting dildos are handheld, and some suction cups don't hold very well. The toy mount is an answer 😉

liberator wing sex toy mount

Just position the mount and the toy, and let the thrusts flow.

Liberator Wing is a great mount, just keep in mind that you'll lose a little bit of toy's length when you place it in there.

There are quite a bit of creative things you can do with this mount.

Here's you can see Wing toy mount in action:


What Are The Best Thrusting, Vibrating & Pulsating Dildos Out There? (Side-by-Side Comparison Chart)

Here's the chart, but keep reading for explanations on how to read the chart before you take a deep dive in it:

best thrusting dildos compared on chart

As you see we included the best bang for the buck fucking machine from Hismith in the chart so you can kinda compare how thrusting dildos are different than heavy-duty machines.

Then in the green color, we marked our two top recommendations.

Loudness levels are indicated as:

  • very quiet is the best
  • fairly quiet are the medium levels, but compared to other items there are quieter.
  • loud — are the ones that are really noisy

Not the most scientific levels, but most people don't know what's good decibel count. For better understanding, I invite you to check the review comparison videos below.

Here's the quick rundown of all options and explain why they made it to the chart:

  • Velvet Mini Teddy ( ⭐ Overall Best) ($150) — there is no real competition really, Teddy has 2.5" thrust while being fairly quiet, has a suction cup and the speed is really good for what it does. Velvet company specializes in thrusting dildos and this is the best thruster yet.
  • Stronic Real ($180) (⭐ Runner Up — Pulsating dildo) — Fun Factory has really specialized in pulsating /jiggly/wiggly dildos. It's not really a thrust, but dildo does move 0.5" back and forth. While thrust isn't the best, Stronics are extremely quiet, and they are waterproof since they don't require air that real thrusters do. Plus, there are three design variations to explore.
  • LoveHoney Rabbit ($55) ( ⭐ Budget Pick) — Happy rabbit is good at many things, not great at any. It's a good rabbit vibrator with 1" thrust. It does everything well and is a great budget starter toy. But don't expect your mind to be blown.
  • Calexotics California ($60) — California is similar to Lovehoney's Rabbit, but it's really nicely designed and has specialized in clit stimulation while giving 0.5" thrust.
  • Inja Deep Stroker ($60) — Inja is the best longest thrusting dildo on budget. For the price, you get 2" thrust. Nothing else comes close. On top of thrusts, you get 10 vibrating functions and a fairly quiet motor.
  • Maia Max with Remote ($100) — Maia has few unique features. It has okayish 1.5" thrust, but where it shines is the remote control and the suction cup that is really strong. Teddy has a suction cup, but it needs a really good surface. Maia is best for anal play since it's hard to push the buttons when you don't see anything. Remote saves the day.
  • Commotion Cha Cha ($157) — This rabbit dildo is similar to Fun Factory Stronics because it pulsates 0.4" back/forth, but it also has rabbit ears and G-spot targeting head. Maybe the mix of the features speaks to you.
  • Hismith Fucking Machine ( ⭐ Upgrade Choice)($360 with HSM10 code) — an honorary mention. If you want something that will handle the big toys, a truly hands-free experience and deep (up to 6" thrusts) Hismith is the best machine for the price. Maybe you cannot get it now, but know that fucking machines are the true thrusting masters.

Okay, now you can dive into the chart.

Next, we'll discuss the best options in more detail and give some video demos:

The Best Thrusting Dildo Machine: Velvet Mini Teddy

Velvet Thrusters are best in the business and their bigger models thrust up to 3" — which is the biggest for handheld dildos like that.

The next bigger step is a fucking machine. But the downside with the most popular Velvet Thruster like Jackie is that it's loud. 

Freaking loud.

Yes, the motor is strong the shaft bends in 90 degrees, but you need to be alone at home to use it.

Their newest model Velvet Mini Teddy, however, is a lot more silent, still gives 2.5" thrust, has a suction cup and is also cheaper ($150).

thrusting dildo and fucking dildo machines compared

Hismith is the next level thruster dildo machine 😉

For many toy enthusiasts and experts, Teddy is their favorite dildo.

I even went ahead an negotiated 10% discount with TheThruster company just for you guys: “ALPHA10” (apply on checkout). Yep, you can get Teddy for $135.

Here's an excellent comparison video showing Mini Teddy vs their previous product Thruster Jackie (the one that's loud). 

Also, you get to see the difference between pulsating FunFactory Stronic and actual thrusting Teddy:

The one downside that some mention is the lack of realism though.

Thrusting dildos thrust really good, but their shafts are quite firm.

If you've got a budget though, there is a hack for it.

The most realistic silicone called Vixskin is made by company Vixen Creations. 

And they have penis sleeves, that you can put on top of the Teddy and get a bigger and very realistic thrusting member overnight! 🙂 It's pretty cool.

Here's how it looks in action, video, and idea by Phallophile Reviews:

Finally, if you want to get more serious with thrusting, you might want to consider a fucking machine. 

Hismith fucking machine is the best bang for the buck, and with some athletic tape it can even handle big Bad Dragon or Mr. Hankey big dildos (machine weighs 24.5 lbs after all):

Here's how Hismith dildo machine looks in action just so you can compare:


The Best Pulsating & Vibrating Dildo: Fun factory Stronic Real

Pulsating dildos make for great hands-free toys. 

Since there is not much thrusting happening you can just insert the toy and let it wiggle back and forth.

It's different from subtle vibrations, it does kinda mimic the grinding experience you might have during the sex.

Or maybe it feels like a massage deep inside. The only way to find out is to get it yourself 😉

Seriously though, pulsating is different from thrusting, and maybe it's not for you. Watch the video to see (Stronic Real demo):

While  we picked Stronic Real as the best choice for most people, you must know that there are 3 other interesting variations.

stronic and commotion cha cha pulsating dildos on chart

Also under this umbrella, we included BMS Factory Commotion Cha Cha thrusting rabbit vibrator as it also has the same pulsation functionality:

  • Stronic Real ($180)— this is our top pick because it will work for most people. It's the most realistic of the bunch and has a nicely defined head.
  • Stronic G ($180)— this is the dildo that really lets you target that G-spot and it really does work wonders if you want some targeted stimulation. nJoy Pure Wand gets all the limelight to create squirting orgasms, but the new kid is on the block.
  • Stronic Surf ($180)(previously Stronic Drei — $171)— if you want something different… you might want to consider this ridged and angled version. Some love it, some get nothing from it vaginally, but love it anally.
  • Commotion Cha Cha ($157) — it's very similar dildo to Stronic, just with a rabbit ears attach to it for clitoral stimulation. It does work, and the curve on the tip of this dildo targets the G-spot nicely, but then again it's also slightly bit louder than Stronic. All of these products are quite similar so it will go down to which model speaks to you more. 

Here's a great video demo of all three Stronic vibrating/pulsating dildos:

Stronic also has few additional color choices, so watch out from them too.


The Best Budget Thrusting Vibrators & Dildos

Now we're discussing the best budget options (under $100). 

You'll notice that for this price you'll get less thrust and more of the traditional rabbit vibrator types.

budget dildo machines and vibrators side by side

Inja and Maia Max stand out with some interesting features, but still, you're making tradeoffs.

This is why it's important that you write down beforehand what's important in thrusting dildo for you. 

There is quite a bit of choice with subtle differences.

rotating pulsating thrusting dildos on comparison chart
  • LoveHoney Rabbit ($55) ( ⭐ Budget Pick) — this is our budget pick because for the price it does a lot of things. To be fair it's not the greatest in any of them, but it does everything well. It has 1" thrust, has two motors — one for thrust and second for ear vibrations. It's quiet and lets you experience a lot, for a little money. Also what's great is that Happy Rabbit has several dildo variations to choose from. For example, there is Happy Rabbit Beaded which has a rotating head. Then there are G-spot and slimmer versions. You get quality choices for budget prices.
  • Calexotics California ($60) — this dildo has a short 0.5" thrust, but it has lots of rabbit ear vibration settings, and the ears themselves work nicely to target the clit precisely.
  • Inja Deep Stroker ($60) — this thrusting dildo stands out as being the cheapest good choice. It gives 2" thrust while for the same price others offer just 0.5" to 1". On top of that, it has vibration functions and it's pretty quiet. A good deal.
  • Maia Max ($100) — this dildo is unique because it has an additional suction cup and remote control while having fairly good 1.5" stroke length. This is especially important for anal play when you cannot really see where the buttons are. It thrusts and vibrates, and has quite a bit of setting to shuffle through. The downside though that the dildo is fairly loud.

Here's a nice video comparison between Lovehoney Rabbit budget thruster vs Thruster Teddy and BMS Cha Cha models:

You do get what you pay for. What else can I say?


Bringing It All Together

women enjoying themselves on the bed

As you can see the best thrusting dildo right now is Velvet Mini Teddy

Hands down. There's not even a real competition out there.

Fun Factory Stronics pulsations are interesting, but it's still not thrusting.

If 2" is not satisfying — you must look at fucking machines.

That's where you'll get a true deep fucking/thrusting experience.

But this is still a great first step. 

If you're new to sex toys — getting something like Happy Rabbit is great to experience lots of sensations. 

Then once you know what you like you can really invest in a high-quality option.

That's what I did.
