Vibra King Review: There’s a Reason It’s Called the King

This review has been a long time coming, and since there are very–and I mean very–few of them available, I’m going to try and make it thorough. Which means this won’t be like some of my other toy reviews, where there’s a sexy story involved.

No, this review is going to tell you why the Vibra King is worth every penny you spend on it.

So first things first.

This is a Vibra King.

vibra kingThe Vibra King is a vintage personal massager that hit the porn scene a few years ago. If you tend to like watching girls masturbate, then there’s a chance you may have come across this beast before.

Vibra Kings are hard to find, really only available on e-Bay and at estate sales. But they’re a hot commodity, so be prepared to get into a bidding war over this baby. I got mine in March on e-Bay. I got a deal on it for about $100 (they normally go for around $150), because the seller didn’t know the market.

Mine was originally purchased in 1957 for $29.95.

If you’re lucky enough to get one in the original box, you’ll see it comes with four different head attachments, similar in style to every personal massager made from 1950 to 2000.

An original will not come with the white tip you see on porn. Repeat. It does NOT come with the plain white attachment the girls on porn use.

And honestly, I don’t recommend any of the attachments it comes with for masturbation purposes. You’ll want something similar to  what the porns have, but I have yet to find it. We’ve tried a variety of things, from golf balls to rubber chair guards, and what’s worked best for us is the end of a silicone dildo.

Speaking of attachments, you can see that each one screws on, not snaps. That made the silicone really easy to deal with, as M just drilled a hole in it, and I can tighten it to where I want it.

The Vibra King is small, about the size of a compact blow dryer, and it has a similar shape. It’s heavier than more modern vibrators, but when compared to the Hitachi, it’s about the same. Maybe a few ounces heavier.

The design of the handle makes it easy to manipulate over your pussy, and you can easily change angles without having to bend your arm backwards.

The Vibra King doesn’t have any speed control, just an on and off switch, which you can see on the right side below.  Basically, it’s either off, or rocking your socks off.

It plugs in, and the cord is rather long–thankfully–probably close to eight feet. It’s long enough that you don’t get stuck up next to the bed or have it accidentally unplug while you’re playing.

And because it plugs in, it keeps consistent and constant speed.

The vibrations are strong, but not thuddy, and do not radiate through the whole device, like with the Hitachi. This means that your hand’s not going to go numb if you’re playing for an extended time.

What makes this thing great, is that the vibrations are concentrated, unlike any other vibrator I’ve used (and I’ve used a lot). I can’t really compare it to anything, but imagine taking the power of an Hitachi, and compressing it into a half inch surface. Yeah. That’s sort of what it’s like. Pinpointed on wherever you place the little devil.

Now, from my experience with Vibra King porn, mine is pretty damn quiet. Extremely quiet as long as the silicone head is on it. Quiet enough to use even if there’s other people in the house. Now I will say that when you press down on it, it does get a little bit louder, but not even close to the majority of the vibrators I own, and definitely quieter than the Wand.

As far as use goes, with the Vibra King you can isolate the vibrations to get them right where you want them, whether it’s over the whole clit, on one side, on the top, or even under the hood.

I typically keep my panties on when I use it, simply because the vibrations are so strong on my clit. If M and I are playing, I go without, but when I’m just trying to get off, it works better with a layer of cloth between my clit and the vibrator.

This has quickly become one of my favorite toys. Now, I don’t use it exclusively, but I’d say the King makes its way to my pussy just as often as the Hitachi, if not a little more.

The day I took this picture, it made me cum so hard I had change my panties. I typically use it just as shown, right over my clit, and within only a few minutes, I’m gushing.

Now, I’ve always been a squirter, so I can’t promise that this thing will make you ejaculate if you never have, but I can tell you it’s the best shot you’ve got as far as vibrators go. While I can soak a sheet with the Hitachi, it’s never on the first orgasm and I typically need M watching to get me there. The King’s not like that. It can get me there within minutes, and keep me there for as long as I can stand it.

I’ve only got one complaint. If you’re playing for an extended period of time, say more than 30 minutes or so, the machine gets hot. Too hot. When this happens, you need to shut it down and let the motor cool.

So that’s it. All I can think of to report. Please feel free to post specific questions in the comments or email me for more information.

Oh. One last thing. It’s one of the best $100 I’ve ever spent and I’ve never regretted the purchase.

  1. I was wandering about the net a while back, as you do. I happened across a couple of articles about reducing the intensity of the vibrations from a Wand with a dimmer switch. I know somebody who has tried this and it works well for her:-)
    It will probably work for the new-to-you Vibra King, too.

    Every good girl should have a Hitachi, add a dimmer for even more fun

  2. You’re right about the bidding war. After losing out on one that jumped in price over $50 in the last seconds of the eBay auction, my best offer for another was accepted for a good deal more. Couldn’t not get one.

    It was supposed to be a Christmas present, but 1) I don’t think I can wait that long to give it to my bride and 2) I’m not sure it’s exactly something we want to open with the family around. I do now need to begin the process of finding the the right tip.

    Loved your review.

  3. When ours arrived in the mail, I was riduclously anxious to open it, it was all I could do to wait til my Hubby got home!

    Head to the hardware store. And good luck!

    Stop back after you give it to her, whether it’s this week or at Christmas, and let me know what you think!

  4. This is such a great review for so many reasons: 1) Obviously you were not paid by Vibra King to do it! 2) What dedication! You went out of your way to find this vintage product. 3) You were brave enough to try it even though it looks like it would electrocute you! 4) Pics! Love your pics!

  7. There is a MASSIVE uptick on the Vibra-King prices now. As HIGH as $500 “buy-it-now” pricing.

  8. Thank you for the review!

    Just got my Vibra-King today, and went to the hardware store, and a sex store, to look for an attachment to fit on it, because as you wrote in your review, the attachment which came with mine doesn’t fill too good.

    I think I found a great attachment solution which I’m happy to share:

    In a hardware store, buy a rubber/plastic hose, the simplest one, like the one used in air conditioners, or to transfer fuel from one tank to another (Communicating vessels way), which is 0.5 inch in diameter. As it is made from rubbery plastic, cut it with scissors to your desired length (about 2 inch) and it can be very easily screw on the metal head of the vibrator.
    In a sex store, buy a Silicone Finger Sleeves, like ticklers, to fit on the plastic hose.

    The only thing which needs a bit of creativity (but very little) is to fill the silicone head with something round and not the end of the hose.
    I made two attachments, in the 1st I filled the head with silicone glue (through the hose, very easy) and left to cure for a day. For the 2nd I warped masking tape around the rubber hose, to look like the white attachment they use in porn, and then covered it with the silicone finger sleeve for a nice feel (the masking tape is sharp at the edges),

    I didn’t try both yet, but for now it seems like such a good fit, especially the one with the masking tape, and I wanted to share it with you.

    Will be happy to share more information later 🙂

  10. How does the Vibra King compare to the Wahl All Body Therapeutic Massager [small white tip] – which is readily available?

  11. I got one at a thrift store for 7 bucks

  12. Have you used a Wahl? Is the Vibra King similar?

  13. I just bought one on eBay for $368 and it has everything and a custom handmade box just for the king
