DIY Sybian: How To Build Your Own At Home [2022]

Discover the hidden side of a DIY Sybian – the costs, the work involved, and how to do it in the most economic fashion…

DIY Sybian

If you’ve ever heard the name Sybian thrown around, you’re probably aware of the reputation that goes along with it. 

This ride-on sex machine has amassed what I’d dare to call a cult following. With a powerful dual motor and an array of pleasure-giving attachments, the Sybian is a formidable addition to any bedroom.

With all that hype, though, comes a hefty price tag. 

If you’re not in a position to shell out thousands of dollars for the real thing, don’t despair.

Here’s how you can make your own version for a fraction of the cost.

Is It Hard Replicating The Original Sybian Design?

This is hard to do, just check this video of how the motor looks inside the Sybian.

The original motor is quite big, and it has a belt that transfers the rotation to the screw. Platform sites on 4 springs that help with the rotation.

A belt system is tough to make and will require welding between the 2 bolts. Exact replica is thought to pull off as it’s very complicated and requires making precise parts.

Is A DIY Sybian Safe To Use?

The main concern is the motor – if you’re not sure what you’re doing, you may end up using a motor that’s way too powerful. And no, that wouldn’t be safe.

Before attempting this, make sure you have a decent grasp of DIY electronics and construction. If you don’t, and yet you’re comfortable with it, you could ask someone else for help.

How Much Is It Gonna Cost You?

The biggest consideration is where will you get the parts and how much they will cost.

Ebay is a great source for components for Sybian building like:

  • Motor – a quality motor will cost you around $100 (one from eBay or reuse from a fan)
  • Speed control – around $20
  • Bearings – the harder part is to weld the parts together.

As for attachments themselves, I would actually buy them either from the official Sybian or Motorbunny website.

Pro Tip

You can use discount code SEXUALALPHA to get $40 off your order on Motorbunny.

If you have a 3D printer you could make them yourself, but the machine is what’s expensive, not the attachments.

How To Actually Build Your Own Sybian

Option #1: A Basic DIY Sybian

Choose A Sex Pillow

Sex pillows are already designed for getting down and dirty, so they’re the perfect base for a simple DIY sex-machine

One of my personal favorites is the Liberator Heart pillow. It’s a wedge-shaped pillow with a distinctive heart shape that’s perfect for our little craft project.

Another fantastic option is the Liberator BonBon. This pillow is actually shaped just like a Sybian, and includes a sex tox mount.

Attach your favorite dildo or vibrator to the pillow either in its dedicated sex toy mount or with a strap-on harness.

Add A Chair

You’ll want a chair that’s low enough to position you directly over the toy and allow it to penetrate you. 

It will also need to have a hole in the seat

If you have a low-lying chair at home that you don’t mind destroying, go ahead and use that!

Otherwise, there are chairs designed specifically for this. The one I recommend is the Bondage Boutique Sex Position Enhancer.

It’s a simple stool with wide, comfortable slings to support your weight and add a bit of bounce. 

A gap between the two slings allows for genital access. Position this over your mounted sex toy.

Test It Out!

Now all that’s left is to have fun! 

If you’re using a vibrating or rotating dildo, you’ll get a taste of the Sybian’s motorized functionality. 

Plus, the sex stool can be used for partner sex or pussy worship, and the sex pillow can be used as a standalone sex toy mount, plus a sex aid for trying out different couple’s positions. 

It’s win-win-win!

Option #2 – Simplified Sybian Design

  • Build a platform that holds on 6 hard springs (to support vibrations)
  • Add 2-3 double sided 24v vibrating motors
  • Build the outer design with padding, foam, leather to make it comfortable sitting (Sybian dymensions are 10″ height, 13.25″ wide, and 12.5″ long)
  • Add on top Sybian or Motorbunny attachment.

This is a way to do it, but the question is will the vibrations be strong enough.

Then if you want a speed control that adds extra layer of complications.

Hah, and option #3?

  • Just get a Magic Wand with Liberator BonBon sex toy mount…and ride it!
  • The bouncy chair will add the thrusting sensations!

In my mind it’s the best DIY sybian option. And all 3 pieces will cost you $300 max, but you can use them separately… mix and match with other toys.

Sounds like a good simplified solution.

Oh, and here’s another user who actually made even cheaper version of Sybian sex toy by using pillow, strapon harness and Magic Wand:

If You Know Your Way Around…

If you feel at home with power tools and aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty, the options open up even more.

Use a more powerful motor

If you can get your hands on a powerful motor, you can go up to 10,000RPM for your DIY Sybian. 

That said, 6000RPM will give you plenty of oomph, so don’t stress too much about that – it’s always better to work with what you already have.

A good source for this could be a jigsaw, an orbital sander, or a wood router. You just want to make sure whatever it is, it’s speed-adjustable.

Use a stronger casing

Along with a stronger motor, you’ll want a stronger casing to make sure it stays together in light of all those powerful vibrations.

Sturdy wood, or even metal, would make for a good casing

You’ll also want well-padded materials for the seating, so you’re not getting knocked around on a hard surface.

Other People Homemade Sybian Experiences

I made a Sybian from an 800 Watt Jigsaw and a Hitachi Wand, the VFD on the Jigsaw is controlled by a lamp dimmer I got off eBay for a dollar.

This is my first sex type build, I have a background in mechanical engineering and am trying to make cheap sybians for around $300. I’m working on my second one now using a whetstone bridge resistor dimmer I found on eBay for 2 bucks. Here’s a link of it operating.

I built a big assed vibratory with a 900rpm motor and an off weight pulley, it was not fast enough. You need to be able to at least go to 6000 rpm, that’s 100hz and about the same frequency as a low growl. No matter how powerful it is, you need the speed. I think sybian go to 10,000 rpm.

Get a used adjustable random orbital sander, it’ll be much easier and better.

The problem is that they (dremels) don’t have the torque needed to get the rumble. Mine hade plenty of amplitude, just not enough frequency. Also it was an ac motor so it got hot around 30 minutes and only had the single speed. I think if you could find a variable speed wood router or sander that it would work much better, but the girl I was doing it for isn’t there any more so I’m hard pressed to build a 30 lb vibrator any more.

You can rent one, as well as buy them locally, I saw them at the Vancouver Sex Show last year. I can’t recall the name of the place, but I’m sure if you Googled “sybian for rent/sale Vancouver,” you’d find it. Btw, I rode one and was unimpressed, so renting for a week might be a good option to start, anyway.

Finally, if you’re super handy then you might like the work of a guy building his own sybian saddle sex machine.

He said he worked on it for 2 months and built vibrating part from scratch. Then he decided to upgrade the machine and add the thrusting features too.

While schematics aren’t available anymore, he did share that for vibration motor (the main part) he used a heavy duty 2-speed fan from Homedepot.

After watching this video you’ll understand why Sybian and Motorbunny cost so much.

But the main takeaway is that you gotta be creative and scrap the stuff you have around, and plug random pieces together.

Bringing It All Together

If I were you I would first rent out a used Sybian (silicone attachments), and then try that BonBon Liberator mount + Magic Wand combo.

You’ll get a quality experience for less money and no work.

Then if you’re hard-pressed to build your own version, check out like-minded communities like DIY Electronics to get help and advice on building process.

The basic design is simple, the main issue is the power. Then the comfort.

You may also want to consider checking out the best fucking machine guide for more options.

Finally, you could consider cheaper Sybian vibrating saddle alternatives if you’re okay paying at least a few hundred bucks for it without any work.

Good luck, and I hope this DIY Sybian guide helped you.
