DIY Sybian: How To Build Your Own At Home

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

Sybian in a sense is just a vibrating saddle, bench with three important parts:

  • The vibrating and/or rotation motor
  • Speed control
  • And the thing you sit on – attachment, dildo.

The seat itself is easy – just pick a bench or something laying around.

Here are three paths of making a homemade Sybian machine:

  1. Get the parts and if you’re handy – do it all yourself.
  2. Get the necessary parts (from eBay, Homedepot) and ask for help from local waterjet companies, for example, to get necessary metal parts welded. You don’t need to tell what is that you are building.
  3. Get used or cheap Sybian knockoff machine from Amazon and either fix it or upgrade it.

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

In total it shouldn’t cost you more than 200 USD to make. It’s not gonna look pretty, but it will work.

Option #1: Trying to replicate the original design

This is a 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 though to make and will require welding between the 2 bolts. Exact replica is though to pull off as it’s very complicated and requires making precise parts.

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:

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.

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.
