VibePad 2 Review

Sarah Riccio

Attention pleasure seekers! The world of grinding toys just got a serious upgrade. 

Today I’m reviewing the VibePad 2, the sex toy sequel to the Original VibePad, a best-selling vibrator designed for folks who like to grind. I was a bit skeptical when the VibePad 2 hit the scene because I couldn’t imagine how the Original VibePad — AKA the grinding toy of my dreams — could get any better.

But now that I've tested both, I'm here to tell you: the VibePad 2 features some exciting differences that make it a very worthy successor to the OG. 

In this review, I explain how to use the VibePad 2, who it’s best for, how it compares to the Original, and much more. I dive into my personal experience with the VibePad 2, and offer tips and tricks for making the most of this uniquely stimulating toy.

Unboxing the VibePad 2

As a vocal fan of the Original VibePad, I unboxed the VibePad 2 with a few reservations and a why-mess-with-a-good-thing attitude. As I examined the Vibepad 2 from top to bottom, there was no denying the intrigue of the little silicone tongue protruding from one of the arches

I flicked the tongue feature with my finger and was surprised at how smooth, flexible, and soft it is. Aside from the tongue and the color of the silicone, the VibePad 2 looks and feels exactly like the Original: oval-shaped, flexible, and smooth against bare skin. And like the Original, the Vibepad 2 includes a remote that allows you to operate its functions with a simple press of a button. 

Along with the toy and remote, each Vibepad 2 box includes a USB charging cable and instruction booklet. 

How Does The VibePad 2 Work?

If you caught my Original VibePad review and were impressed by how user-friendly it is, you’ll be glad to know that the VibePad 2 functions almost exactly the same way. 

To turn it on, press the power button on the underside of the toy once, at which point it will blink, indicating it's in stand-by mode. Press the power button again to turn the vibration on and activate the remote, which can control all of the VibePad 2's features.

Now, it's worth noting that the VibePad 2 can't be turned on and off with the remote. Yes, it can control the vibration, warming, and tongue fluttering settings, but only the power button can turn the toy on and off completely.

Construction and Design

Both the Original Vibepad and the VibePad 2 are vibrators designed specifically for grinding. They have a flat, flexible, oval construction that can be placed on a chair, a pillow, a partner’s lap — anywhere you deem fit for grinding. 

The Vibepad 2 features two arches of different sizes spread out over the toy's surface. Each arch has its own motor so you can control them separately. You can make the arches vibrate simultaneously at various speeds and patterns, or turn on one arch at a time.

Features and Settings

On the topic of features, the aforementioned silicone tongue is designed to flutter against the clitoris, vulva, and other sensitive bits, and that's exactly what it does. The VibePad 2 also heats up and, of course, it vibrates.

Let's take a closer look at each of these features one by one.

Fluttering Tongue

The tongue fluttering feature offers 7 different modes, including a range of intensities and patterns. The speed of the tongue is ultra-easy to control by pressing the mouth icon on the remote. On the lower setttings, the tongue steadily and gently laps back and forth, while on higher settings, it delivers faster, more direct, and more intense stimulation. 

The tongue itself is made from a silicone material that's soft without being too yielding, making it a fantastic oral sex alternative. Before testing, I wondered if it might feel stiff or excessively pointy, but the folks at Orion have done a remarkable job of creating a tongue-like stimulator that feels smooth and arousing rather than irritating.

This is a great toy to try if you like a fluttering type of clitoral stimulation rather than deep rubbing or pressure.  

Warming Feature

The VibePad 2 includes a warming option that can heat up the entire toy in seconds. It warms to 131 degrees Fahrenheit, which for reference is around the low to mid-range for your average heating pad. It's warm and comfortable against sensitive spots like the vulva, perineum, and anus without feeling too hot.

To ignite the warming feature, just press the little flame icon on the remote. Not only did the warming effect heighten my sensory experience with this toy, it seemed to make me more aroused, more quickly. And it just straight-up feels great.

Because you sit on the VibePad 2, the heat spreads over a much larger area than a pinpoint warming toy that targets, say, just the clitoris or penis. If you've ever wished a cold-but-otherwise-enjoyable-vibrator weren't so chilly, the Vibepad 2 could be an excellent option.  

Vibrating Arches 

The VibePad 2 offers 7 different vibration modes, ranging in intensity from very gentle to quite powerful. As with the tongue and warming features, the vibration settings can be controlled using the remote.

Keep in mind that the arches press into your erogenous zones in a very stimulating way, so you don’t need to turn on the vibration to enjoy this toy. The Vibepad 2 is great for vibration-free grinding, or to use as an arousing prelude before queuing up its other features. 

That said, the VibePad 2's rumbly vibrations are what really gets my body feeling stimulated and ready for orgasm. So take some time to play around with the various vibration settings to find what feels best for you.

Should I Buy the Orion VibePad 2?

The VibePad 2 gives me one of the most powerful, hands-free orgasms I’ve ever experienced. But is it the right fit for you? Let’s dig into the details and take a closer look.

VibePad 2 Pros

It’s body-safe

The VibePad 2 is made from 100% body-safe, non-porous silicone. You don't have to worry about phthalates, BPAs, toxic materials, or other irritants. Plus, it’s easy to clean, safe to share among partners when properly cleaned, and feels smooth on bare skin. 

It’s accessible

I love how portable and accessible the VibePad 2 is. You can pick it up, put it anywhere, sit down, and grind away. If you enjoy on-the-go orgasms, you can even put it in the passenger seat of a car. To give your partner a sexy POV show, place the VibePad on their lap and show them what you can do. You might also want to hand them the remote so they can control the sensation. 

It’s hands-free

The VibePad 2 delivers hands-free pleasure which, for me, is one of its top selling points. If you typically use vibrators that require a firm grip, the VibePad 2 is the perfect way to experience a different kind of pleasure that keeps your mind and body guessing. This toy could also be a good fit if you have hand or wrist mobility issues, or prefer remote-controlled vibes. 

It’s great practice for face-sitting

When it comes to receiving oral sex, many of us find it easier to have an orgasm when we’re in the same position we choose for masturbation (often flat on our backs). Then, when your partner invites you to sit on their face, you can’t quite get there because you're accustomed to your usual way of doing things. 

If you want to climax with greater ease when sitting on your lover’s face, a little rehearsing can help. In my experience, the VibePad 2 both feels a lot like face-sitting and puts you in the perfect position to practice. 

It's versatile

The Vibepad 2 isn't limited to one particular position or body part. You can try:

  • Using it for rimming
  • Tucking it under the testicles 
  • Enjoying it while lying on your side or stomach
  • Flipping it around so the smaller ridge is in the front 
  • Massaging the muscles with it
  • Sitting on it in the bath
  • Draping it over the arm of a sofa
  • Using it if you have mobility issues that make operating hand-held toys difficult

It’s wildly pleasurable

We all know that sex toys don't replace human intimacy, so I won't say that the VibePad 2 feels exactly like a real tongue. It is, however, the closest a toy has come to making me feel like I'm riding someone’s face. And being able to control the flicking and vibration settings with the remote makes it even better. 

If you do want a more realistic experience, try experimenting with those vibration patterns. Playing around with the settings while you grind can amp up the stimulation and make it feel more spontaneous. 

Its warmth boosts blood flow

When you bring heat to your erogenous zones — in this case, the vulva, perineum, and anus, in particular — the warmth can boost blood flow to those areas and dramatically enhance sensation. Overall, the VibePad 2 combines pressure, vibration, tongue flicking, and heat, which makes it a 10 out of 10 in my book.

Orion VibePad 2 Potential Cons

Every toy comes with some potential pitfalls. Here are a few things to watch for with the Vibepad 2: 

It's not specifically for penis stimulation

Like the Original VibePad, this toy was designed for clitoral and vulvar stimulation. That’s not to say that men and folks with penises can’t enjoy it, and those who’ve enjoyed grinding toys in the past should absolutely give it a try. 

But if you’ve never tried a grinding toy before and are looking for a surefire hit, you might want to explore sleeves and strokers before jumping into this one. 

It’s not compatible with silicone lube

Because the VibePad 2 is made from silicone, you can’t use silicone-based lube or you risk damaging the material. Instead, use water-based, oil-based, or even hybrid lubes (which combine silicone and water-based formulas). 

The tongue isn’t for everyone

If you want something totally uniform to grind on, the tongue feature may not be your best bet. It's super soft and flexible, and in my experience didn’t feel sharp or abrasive at all. But if you prefer a seamlessly smooth surface, the Original VibePad is a better choice. 

Final Thoughts 

I hope you enjoyed learning about the VibePad 2 as much as I enjoyed testing it! Hopefully, you’re one big step closer to deciding if it’s the right grinding toy for you.

How do you clean the VibePad 2? 

The VibePad 2 is super easy to clean. Just spray it down with toy cleaner, rinse it under water or wipe it with a damp, clean towel, and pat it dry. You can also let the Vibepad 2 air-dry. 

Is the VibePad2 waterproof?

Both the Original VibePad and the VibePad 2 are fully waterproof, so feel free to enjoy them in the bath or shower!

Is the VibePad 2 quiet?

Absolutely! Even on its highest setting, the VibePad 2 is very quiet, which makes it a good pick for those who prefer to keep their vibes discreet.
