The most common cause of vibration in the perineum is usually stool that's obstructed. This isn't the same as constipation. But when softer stools backs up behind harder stools then it can cause a vibration sensation. This can be worse when you lay down vs when you sit or vice versa. Other causes are what we call in the neuritis, which is when the nerve is inflamed and it can cause a sensation of vibration. this is much less common and usually happens only in patients with neurologic disorders such as diabetes.
