Most sex toys are small and (relatively) inexpensive for a reason. Everyone’s body is different, and even a highly-rated toy can be a risk if it doesn’t … er, do it for you. Plus, the more complicated a device is, the harder it is to muster the motivation to break it out. All that makes the $1,650 Motorbunny Buck a tough sell. Yet I find myself sold.
The Motorbunny Buck is a Sybian-style sex toy. For the unfamiliar, these devices consist of a half-circle saddle with a vibrating seat on top. The seat can be fitted with several different attachments, most of which include an insertable component for internal stimulation. (The term “Sybian” is a bit like Kleenex in that it’s a brand, but you also might have heard it used as a generic term for similar devices.)
What makes the Buck unique, however, is that it can also thrust. A second, separate motor inside this Motorbunny provides a back-and-forth motion behind its phallic attachments. Not only does this add a whole new dimension to the experience, but it means the Buck is one of the few devices out there that can do the job of other sex machines.
Combined with a host of bells and whistles—including a wedge for horizontal use, some bondage eyelets, and remote control via a phone app—the Motorbunny Buck makes the strongest possible case for a sex machine. If you were in the market for one that costs almost as much as an average month of rent, that is.
Before we even get into the specifics about how the Motorbunny Buck works, we have to talk about its psychological impact. Perhaps you’ve seen a device like it in porn. Maybe you’ve stumbled upon it on a sex toy site. But there’s nothing quite like seeing (and hearing) it in person.
In addition to testing it myself, I asked my partners—both cis women—if they would be interested in trying it out. They were both interested, but also intimidated. This isn’t quite like trying a new vibrator or suction toy. On separate occasions, I sat with each of them to show them the different attachments and demonstrate the thrusting and vibration functions.
“It sounds like a jet engine,” one of my partners said.
She wasn’t wrong. The Link controller—a physical box that controls the vibration and thrusting—has two large dials that, naturally, go to 11. But even in the middle of the range on the vibration knob, the device shook so hard that there was no way for our downstairs neighbors couldn’t hear it through the ceiling. This thing is not discreet.
Most of the attachments are also rather, uh, generous. There are three basic attachments: a flat attachment, which, contrary to its name, has a small mound that can be used for grinding without penetration; the Sweet Spot, which is smaller, at 4.45 inches, with a slightly curved tip; and the girthier Thumper, which the company says measures 5.32 inches but to my eye seems a bit longer. The attachments are made of silicone and easy to remove, making clean-up simple.
