Sybian vs Motorbunny: The Battle of the Sex Machines

sybian vs motorbunny

If you’ve found yourself reading this article, then chances are you’re as curious as I am when it comes to the Sybian and the Motorbunny. Both sex machines have a lot of hype surrounding them, which is why I’ve taken it upon myself to figure out which is the best once and for all.

These two products are getting thrown into the ring in a stand off to end all standoffs. They’re about to come face to face in the ultimate battle. Think of it as being like the Battle of the Bastards – only minus the bloodshed. And plenty more orgasms.

I get it, sex machines can be intimidating. Perhaps you’re perfectly content with your trusted dildo/vibrator that does the job as required, and have no desire to purchase a robotic cock – in that case, you do you.

But if you are in two minds about which one to buy, then you’re in the right place. I’m going to pick each of these machines apart bit by bit and compare all aspects to help you decide which one is the best and ultimately – your next ride or die. Pun absolutely intended.

What Are Sybian And Motorbunny?

Both the Sybian and the Motorbunny are similar in that they are both saddles designed for a woman to ride. As the term ‘saddle’ suggests, they look exactly as you’d imagine. Picture sitting in the saddle of a horse, or riding your lover’s dick in the bedroom.

Personally, girl on top is one of my favorite positions when it comes to sex. And sure, you can sorta replicate that with a dildo and a suction cup… but there’s something about these saddle sex toys that offer a little extra. So, as you can imagine, I was keen to try them both out as soon as I got them in the mail.

I’ll go into more detail a little later about my experience with each of the two companies, from purchasing via their respective websites, shipping and delivery, customer support offered, and my overall thoughts so that you can gain a greater insight of what to expect.

But before all that, let’s dive a little deeper into the nitty gritty of each of these toys and compare them side by side.

What Is Sybian?

See It

Sybian are the OG’s of masturbation saddles, so it’s only fair that we begin our review with these guys. The finished product arrived in the late 80s – over a decade after the idea was first conceived by its creator, Dave Lampert. With almost 40 years in the biz, it’s safe to say that Sybian knows their way around a saddle.

The Sybian also featured heavily on Howard Stern’s radio show. Whether you thought that was creepy or not is entirely up to you…

Naturally, everybody wanted a piece of the cake and since Sybian first burst onto the scene, numerous other companies have tried to replicate the Sybian, including Motorbunny – only they came much later.

Here’s what included when you purchase the Sybian Original:

  • Matching stool
  • 4 attachments (you can choose from either beige or chocolate)
  • Lubricant
  • Power cord
  • Instruction guide
  • 5 year warranty
  • 45 day satisfaction money-back guarantee

And what’s the price of the Sybian, I hear you ask…?

Brace yourselves…

As of 2024, the Sybian comes in at a cool $1295.

Now, I know what you’re thinking… You could buy yourself a boyfriend at that price. Well, maybe not – and it’s not something I suggest you do. But you catch my drift. I was shocked, too. But even with that high price tag, Sybian continues to be on top of their game when it comes to ride-on saddles, and undoubtedly one of the most, if not the most popular of its kind.

So, are they worth the hype?

My experience with Sybian

I ordered the original Sybian from their website, and have to say that it was a seamless transaction. The website looks great, and it’s easy to navigate. The shipping is totally discreet and what makes it even better is that it’s totally free delivery if you live in the US. I mean, it’s the least they could do given the price of the damn thing…

It arrived in good time and I only had to wait about 3 days from my initial order date for it to turn up on my doorstep. The first thing I have to say after opening up the packaging was how beautiful it looks! I ordered it in Playful Pink with the beige attachment, and I was blown away with how pretty it was! I’d seen the Sybian a lot in porn, but it looks even better when you’re face to face with it. Safe to say I was excited to try it out! There are so many different color options to choose from, which is fun. Plus you can choose between a beige or chocolate attachment dildo. Other colors for the saddle include:

  • Classic Black
  • Passion Purple
  • Blushing Red

The four attachments that come with the Sybian are the Smooth FlatTop, and classic dildo attachments in sizes small, medium, and large. I honestly think this is pretty generous of them to include four attachments, giving you a bit of variety to choose from. I also like how you can choose from colors beige or chocolate, depending on your own preferences.

On lifting the saddle out of the box, it’s fair for me to say that it’s pretty hefty. So this is something to consider when purchasing and storing away. I’d recommend storing it in the same room you plan on using it mostly. It has a handy grip that makes lifting and shifting a little easier with two hands, but to save yourself the hassle, keep it tucked away close to where you’ll use it most. On the other hand, the fact that it’s heavy means it’s pretty sturdy, plus most sex machines are on the heavier side due to the nature of them being… well, sat on and ridden.

When it comes to set up, it was easy peasy. All you have to do is attach the part you want and plug it in at the wall. It really is as simple as that! If you want to see a manual, however, it’s downloadable via their website in pdf format, along with the instruction guide it comes with.

Before I strapped myself in, I tested out the different settings so as to not give myself a huge shock on maximum speed. What I found when doing this is that the Sybian doesn’t have numbered options meaning you adjust the speed with how it feels when you’re riding it. I quite like this feature as it requires you to focus solely on the sensation, as opposed to specific numerical settings. You start off slow and you increase it as and when you desire.

From what I’ve seen in porn, the Sybian gives you the most insane orgasms. With that in mind, it was time to giddy up, horsey.

The Sybian comes with its own lubricant so for the purpose of reviewing, I lubed up the medium sized classic attachment (although I was that horny, I don’t think I needed much). Within the first millisecond of straddling the sex saddle, I knew I was in for a wild ride. I started off low and slow but I soon needed more.

The controller is super easy to use and teamed up with the vibrations and rotation, the dildo was hitting all the right spots. Before I knew it, I was cumming in minutes.

Yep, big fan of the Sybian.

My only real issue is the noise levels. If you have roommates or live with kiddos, obviously wait until they leave the house. Even if it wasn’t for you screaming out in pleasure, the vibrations alone from this thing are enough to shake the whole house.

Another thing is that it doesn’t have wireless control nor does it have the option to sync up to an app. Sure, this thing was designed in the 80’s, but it’s time to catch up to the 21st century, guys…

I’ve also tested the Smooth FlatTop attachment which is, again, powerful as hell. While it’s obviously not penetrative, the sensation it brings, especially on the clit, is insane. The horsepower on this bad boy is so wild that any other sex toy you own will find itself stuffed at the back of the cupboard covered in dust for the foreseeable. While it’s not exactly easy to lug around, so don’t expect to be able to take this with you when traveling on an airplane, it’s a solid staple to have in your collection.

Maintaining the Sybian is really simple. You clean the attachment just as you would any other sex toy – with a simple wipe. Use a damp cloth to wipe down any other spillages… for lack of a better term, that may find themselves onto the machine itself. It’s super easy and no faff whatsoever. Bonus points for that!

Sybian offers a 5 year warranty which I think is brilliant, as well as a 45 day trial. If you’re not 100% satisfied with the machine, then they will give you a full refund. You do have to pay some return fees, however – so keep that in mind.

What other people are saying about Sybian

With so many years on top of their game, there’s nothing but rave reviews when it comes to the Sybian. People seem to like the fact that it comes with so many different attachments and obviously the crazy orgasms that come with using it speak for themself. One of the best reviews I found online simply stated:

“Thanks. After my purchase, I’m now divorced. Lol.”

Is the Sybian as good as the real thing? Well, no – I wouldn’t go that far. But that’s because I’m big on foreplay, and the occasional spoon.

But the Sybian can be used solo or alongside your partner, plus it’s widely popular amongst members of the BDSM community. Just don’t expect to be able to control the Sybian at a distance longer than about 3 feet.

Final thoughts On Sybian

Listen, Sybian are legendary for a reason. This machine is the blueprint that so many other companies are striving towards. Do I recommend that you purchase it? Yes, I do – but only if your budget allows for it, obviously. My only real qualm is the lack of wireless control and how loud it gets, even when the dials are only turned up halfway.

But before you go ahead and rush to their site and add one to your cart, consider the next machine that might save you a few pennies, but give you just as much pleasure.


What Is Motorbunny?

The people behind Motorbunny undoubtedly found a gap in the market. Where other sex machines were lacking technology-wise. Motorbunny were keen to resolve this. Thus in 2015, Motorbunny became the first wireless sex saddle ever, along with Bluetooth technology designed for long distance pleasure. Right off the bat, Motorbunny is already ahead of Sybian when it comes to technology. But do they compare when it comes to what’s most important? Which is, of course, getting off.

Here is what you can expect when you order the Motorbunny + LINK Bluetooth Bundle:

  • Motorbunny machine
  • 4 TPE attachments
  • LINK bluetooth controller
  • App control
  • 2 x attachment inserts (rod and spring)
  • 2 x risers for height adjustment
  • 11 year warranty
  • 45 day money back guarantee

The price? Well, the Starter Kit alone (non-bluetooth) costs around $1300 from their website, which is the same for the kit that allows for bluetooth. I read online somewhere that apparently the Motorbunny is the cheaper alternative to the Sybian. However, I’m yet to find any online store that backs this up. Both of them are relatively similar in price, give or take 100 bucks.

Okay, the $100 difference isn’t necessarily similar in price… Let’s face it, they’re both fucking expensive. But with the high tag does come quality. So let’s get into my experience with Motorbunny.

My experience with Motorbunny

First of all, I just want to say how grateful I am that these guys deliver in discreet packaging. But before I get to that, the overall ordering process was simple. Much like the Sybian, their website is seamless and uncomplicated. My package arrived within a matter of days after ordering on a Monday. It was with me by Thursday afternoon.

Anyway, back to delivery…

As I was saying, I was out when the postie attempted to deliver my Motorbunny which meant they left it with one of my neighbors. I don’t know about you, but can you imagine the horror of my 85 year old neighbor being handed over a sex saddle, then handing said saddle back to me? Thankfully, I didn’t have to worry about that. It’s always worth mentioning whether or not companies ship discreetly, as I know that’s one major concern for a lot of you guys who buy sex toys online. While it’s nothing to be embarrassed about, I certainly would rather not have other people knowing what I get up to when the curtains are drawn.

Everything came perfectly packaged and I had everything I needed to get going, including four TP attachments (varying in size), and attachment risers. This I thought was a nice touch to add a little height to your attachments if they are struggling to reach you fully. One complaint here is that the attachments are silicone, which is something to note.

The look of the Motorbunny is good, too. Much like the Sybian, as are most of their competitors, it is a sex saddle at the end of the day. But the materials and sturdiness feel really high quality. Again, this is a pretty heavy device – so be aware of that.

While I did opt for the bluetooth controlled saddle, it does also come with a power adaptor, although I doubt I’ll make much use of that. Motorbunny’s whole schtick is that they offer wireless control (something Sybian are yet to introduce). However, for the sake of this review, I tried and tested both ways.

Before I hopped on my new Bunny, I had a quick run through of the controls. There’s the option to increase and decrease both the buzz and the twirl. Both of these are easily done via the remote, or through their app. The app was straightforward to download, whether you’re iOs or Android. All you have to do is search ‘Motorbunny’, and it will come up right away.

The great thing about their app is that you have the option to manually control both the rotations and vibrations, or choose from a selection of routines, OR sync it up to work alongside your favorite sexy playlist. Alexa, play Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye…

Already this is an incredible advancement on the Sybian. I always like to get my partner involved and while the remote control does allow for that, he works away from time to time. So, this enables him to control my orgasms regardless of the fact that he’s out of town.

The vibrations are strong so I advise you to start off on a gentle buzz and then increase it as you please. I really enjoyed the Motorbunny and it definitely did the job, but again, noise levels are pretty high. My top tip is to maybe sit the saddle on top of a duvet or thick blanket to help minimize the noise. Like I said with the Sybian, it’s a high-power, vibrating sex saddle – so you can’t really expect it to be silent which is why I can’t really mark either of them down based on this fact alone, but it’s worth mentioning.

Another reason I like the Motorbunny are the four eyelets attached to the saddle itself. This is particularly good if you’re heavy into bondage. While I’m not exactly big on it, I appreciate that Motorbunny have thought about the BDSM community in their design.

Now, when it comes to maintenance, this is where Motorbunny loses a point. And it’s the fact that their attachments are TPE as opposed to silicone. Is it a deal breaker? Meh, it depends on you as a person. But for me, if I’m forking out the big bucks – I expect quality allround, especially when it comes to the parts that are going inside me. TPE attachments cannot be fully cleaned, unlike silicone which can be sterilized. If it’s just you using the attachments, then maybe you can overlook this. But sex saddles are also popular amongst the swinger community, and for that reason, Sybian is the better option.

  • Strong vibrations
  • Wireless control
  • Four eyelets for BDSM play
  • Good for long distance
  • App integration
  • Discreet shipping
  • 45 day satisfaction guarantee
  • 11 year warranty

What other people are saying about Motorbunny

Motobunny is without doubt Sybian’s main competitor, and this product has proved to be a huge hit amongst sex-saddle fanatics around the globe. One man simply stated that the Motorbunny leaves his wife gushing everytime.

The main consensus of the Motorbunny from online reviews is mainly high praise, the only real complaint that people seem to have with it is just how noisy it is.

Final thoughts on Motorbunny

I really like the Motorbunny and the fact that it can be controlled wirelessly does give it that extra edge. While it’s still super expensive, it’s very high quality so you definitely get what you pay for. The only downsides for me are the lack of silicone attachments and how loud it is! I don’t even know how the noise issue can be resolved, unless someone comes out with a silencer perhaps.

Verdict

When it comes to my overall decision on which sex saddle is better, I’m going to go for the Sybian. Yes I complained about its lack of wireless control (which is valid), however, for what it’s worth, I do genuinely believe that the Sybian offered me a better experience. And this doesn’t just mean orgasm-wise. Their customer support team is second to none, their delivery was quick, and they are the OG’s of sex saddles.

I had no issues whatsoever with either company, and Motorbunny also offers great customer service. However, when I emailed both, Sybian was quicker on the mark. I also like the look of the Sybian, as well as the different colors that it comes in, and the beige/chocolate options for attachments.
