nu Sensuelle Trinitii: Sex Toy Review
The nu Sensuelle Trinitii offers threefold delights with vibration, suction and a teen tiny mechanical tongue to lick all your cares away.
The Verdict: (out of five)
As a lot of vulva-owners rate oral sex near the top of their "loves" list, it's literally no surprise that oral sex toys have really popped up - and become a constant staple in the sex toy industry. Designed to replicate the sensations of a tongue licking the clitoris (at least for vulva owners; penis owners have their own oral sex toys!), oral sex toys try to bring the sensations of partnered pleasure to a toy that can be used solo (or with a partner, too! Your choice!).
The nu Sensuelle Trinitii is one of those oral sex toys. At first glance, this pretty silicone sex toy might look like any standard air suction vibrator, but if you take a closer look, you'll see the mini "tongue" situated inside of the air suction tip hole. You might also see the three push buttons on the handle which hint at "something more" - and "something more" is exactly what the nu Sensuelle Trinitii offers.
In fact, the trinity in the name refers to three different sensations: air suction, tongue-flicking, AND vibration. While the tongue wagging design is there to replicate oral sex (and is definitely the star of this show!), the air suction sensations and vibrations are there to enhance the sensations even further - and add more versatility to this sex toy.
As most of the old-school oral sex toys in this genre are focused purely on the tactile sensation of a "tongue", the nu Sensuelle Trinitii attempts to go above-and-beyond the standard oral sex toy by offering a body safe vibrator that's equipped with three separate types of sensation - which adds more pleasure AND offers more uses within the bedroom. (Who doesn't like more value out of their toy?!)
So let's head into this nu Sensuelle Trinitii review and find out whether this clitoral vibrator lives up to its unique name!
How'd You Use It?
The idea of a "tongue on demand" sounded so amazing that I might have overlooked some things I might have thought about ahead of time if I'd had my sense about me. For one, despite the Trinitii having a tongue, in this case, it's all about the size- and in this case, bigger might be better - at least for me.
That's the thing about the human tongue - the vast majority of it is slick, soft, plushy, and wide. Not only that, but it's attached to a powerful muscle which can apply pressure - but unless your partner is specifically licking the clit with the very tip of the tongue (imagine trying to scoop ice cream off a cone with as little of your tongue touching the ice cream as possible), there's a lot more contact with the clitoris from the full tongue than this tongue that's 1/5th the size can provide.
Now, if you're someone who really, really loves that "tip of the tongue" sensation, you're going to fall in love with the Trinitii. I, however, was definitely a bit surprised (and disappointed) to find that it didn't feel much like oral sex, really - more like a finger pushing my clit back and forth instead of firm strokes of a tongue during oral sex.
That being said, the Trinitii tongue did not seem to jam up. With any type of toy that offers a back-and-forth motion, jamming is very much a possibility - but not a reality with the Trinitii. No matter what I put it against, it seems to keep going.
The suction functionality is something else too. Don't go into this expecting an air suction toy if you're familiar with air suction toys. The Trinitii is all-together something else (which, hey - is pretty cool). When the Trinitii says "suction" - it means SUCTION. As in, with this toy in place and the suction on, I can (and literally did) walk to the sink and back in a weird, squatted-waddle - and it will stay in place, hands-free.
That's just not something that the typical air suction toy does. While most air suction toys feels amazing through its suction capabilities, it doesn't literally latch onto the skin like the Trinitii does. And once the Trinitii latches on, you actually have to "break the seal" to pull it off too - like, full-on, suction-cup mode.
That being said, possibly due to the fact that there's a full-on suction that adheres itself to my body, I don't find much sensation from the suction functionality of the Trinitii. I can't tell you if that's my anatomy (having a "large" clitoris that seems to fill the mouth of the toy) or just the design of the suction (where it sucks on and doesn't let go unless you tug at it).
My guesstimation would be that so much skin/flesh has filled the tip of the Trinitii that there's not a lot of leftover air to pull through the Trinitii - which means there isn't any air to trigger the usual "sensations" of an air suction vibe. It's just so powerfully suctioned on that it's - quite literally - suctioned onto my body unlike any other air suction vibe I've ever played with.
The Trinitii doesn't seem to so much as "surround and gently tug" the clitoris like most air suction vibes; it feels like it more "surrounds, keeps tugging, and then eventually pulled so much skin that it feels up the tip chamber and makes it impossible for it to keep tugging".
That sounds like it should be painful, but it really isn't. It just feels really, really suction-y - but not in the usual air suction vibrator way. It leads to a relatively mild sensation that doesn't feel anything like other air suction toys - and air suction vibrators are my absolute go-to favorites, so I own a buttload of them to compare this to.
If you don't like the Trinitii, don't be shy about getting another air suction vibrator (like the Satisfyer Pro 2 or the Womanizer Premium) because they feel entirely different. (It goes the other way too. If you love the Trinitii's suction, don't expect most air suction vibrators to feel like that.)
The Trinitii also seems to have some issues if I fill "too much" of its tip with my body in a way that I haven't experienced with air suction vibes before. As far as I can tell, if there's no "room" left in the "tip" of the Trinitii, it turns off all of its functions.
When I'm trying to enjoy myself - and push the vibrator closer to my body - this tends to happen - which then shuts off the Trinitii's sensations. I had to be careful to keep the Trinitii slightly pulled away from my body - and not do my usual air suction vibrator habits which include pushing it into my body as I get closer to orgasm.
Finally, we have the vibrations. The vibrations are NOT really all that noticeable in the tip of the vibrator where the tongue and suction are located. I actually can't feel them much at all through the tip; this might be because of the super-soft, flexible silicone that the tip is made of.
However, if you flip the vibrator around and use the "handle" as the contact point for the vibrations, you actually get a pretty fantastic vibrator. Normally when an air suction vibrator packages vibrations with the air suction sensations, the vibrations tend to get the shaft. That isn't the case with the Trinitii. The vibrations, while not uber-powerful, are noticeably strong, and they're enough for orgasm for most - especially if the suction and tongue-flicking end has already added a lot of sensation for you.
While this still makes the Trinitii a 3-in-1 sex toy, I wouldn't necessarily expect to be able to enjoy and feel the vibrations while using the other two sensations (air suction and tongue-flicking); I'd consider it more of a separate functionality on the same toy.
Only caveat there: if you go back and forth between the handle vibration and the suction tip, make sure you keep the small channel marked "clear" on the backside, well, clear. This channel is the air intake valve, and in order to make the suction work, the Trinitii needs this to be open and clear. This also means you can't use the Trinitii while wearing tight clothing - or anything else that will press up against it.
So can I orgasm with the Trinitii? Yes, but only through vibrations. The suction, while neat (I've never had a suction toy literally "stick" to me over and over), doesn't really provide much sensation. The tongue flicking could possibly be really pleasurable - but I don't think it is for MY body.
After trying (and failing) to orgasm from the air suction and tongue-flicking tip for about a half an hour, I usually end up having to flip the toy around and use the vibrating handle - which gets the job done. I keep thinking it's just something I need to learn to use, but after 5 attempts to get the tongue-flicking and suction to work for my body, I just think it isn't built for how I tend to experience pleasure.
Which is a shame because the idea of enjoying air suction sensations AND even more pleasure from a moving stimulator at the same time sounds like a sex toy dream come true.
With the Trinitii's current design, though, I consider the Trinitii more of a tease and foreplay toy - with the tip of the tongue providing some unique sensations when used with a feather-light hand. I have yet to be able to figure out how to get the air suction design to work for my body.
How Else Could It Be Used?
The "suction tip" design really lends itself well to nipple use as well. I actually enjoyed it a lot more for nipple use than clitoral use. Since I had a lot more visual feedback on the nipple (versus the clit), I was able to keep the Trinitii at an appropriately-far-away distance to get all of the sensations of the tongue flicking and air suction without overwhelming the toy.
As a fun bonus, with the air suction's actual suction-pump functionality, if you adhere it to the nipples, you can get some serious engorgement just like a nipple pump. The difference between my Trinitii nipple and non-Trinitii nipple was pretty drastic in size and skin coloration.
We've tried the tongue-flicking functionality on my partner's penis, and he actually liked it - especially on the frenulum. It's a really feather-light sensation that reminds me a lot of the Nexus Eclipse toy's frenulum stimulator. He says it isn't anywhere near orgasmic for him, but it was a fun experiment and a neat way to get more couple's use out of this sex toy - especially for experimenting purposes for my nu Sensuelle Trinitii review. (I did a full Nexus Eclipse review if you're curious.)
If you have the flexibility and inclination, with the toy's dual-ended design, you could end up using the air suction and tongue-flicking tip on one person's body - while you could snuggle up with your partner and let them enjoy the vibrating handle somewhere on their body.
The nu Sensuelle Trinitii is fully crafted in silicone - the parts that touch your body and the handle. The "handle" of this oral sex toy doesn't have any texture that makes it easier to grip, so I'd definitely avoid using this toy with any sort of slickness unless you have a towel or hand cloth to wipe your hands and it - or else it slides.
As long as there isn't excess lubrication, though, the Trinitii is pretty easy to hold with a broad handle that fits nicely into the hand - and buttons that are perfectly placed for easy thumb operation - but the broad surface area of the handle also prevents accidental presses too.
The vibrations seem to really originate in the handle, so if you're someone who feels uncomfortable with buzzing in the fingers, I'd definitely recommend keeping the vibrations off until you're holding the air suction tip; that puts you far away enough from the vibrations to feel less of it through your fingers.
Let's go through the power levels and noise for each one of the three functions:
The air suction is the quietest mode of the three. With the air suction functionality gripped onto something (like your body parts), it's relatively quiet, and you can easily use the air suction functionality in a home with a closed door between you and others - as long as there's background noise going on.
The air suction functionality offers 7 suction modes. Only one of those suction modes is a steady suction mode; the rest are patterns. The Trinitii only has the single suction intensity.
The vibrations on this oral sex toy sound like vibrations - however, they're decently loud and high-pitched buzzy. The buzzing pitch gets higher with each speed intensity increase. With music on, multiple layers of blankets, and a closed door with decent space between you and other people, I think you could get away with using the vibration with other people in the home. It's loud enough that you might feel uncomfortable with the idea of doing that, though.
The nu Sensuelle Trinitii offers 15 vibration modes. It has 7 steady vibration modes - and 8 patterned modes. The 7 steady vibration modes come first in the line-up, so if you want to reach the patterned modes, you need to click through the 7 steady vibration modes. I rarely, rarely use patterned modes, so this is very functional for me, and I prefer it over the "only-1-steady-speed" of the suction functionality.
Since the Trinitii uses mechanics to push the tongue back-and-forth, powerfully, it makes sense that the tongue flicking action is the loudest of the three. It's a not-quiet whirring noise that gets slightly louder as you progress through its speeds - but it starts off decently loud to begin with. I'd be cautious about using this if anyone else was in the next room - even if there was music and a closed door separating both of you. It's a very "out of place" noise that's loud enough to call attention to itself.
The tongue functionality has four speeds. It goes from a medium, to a fast, to a really fast, to a really, really fast. I wouldn't say the toy offers any sort of "slow" tongue flicking; even the lowest setting is a lot faster than most human tongues would comfortably be able to move for more than a minute.
For the obvious reason, using all three functions at the same time is the loudest. It is not a quiet toy. The suction is the quietest (and gets even softer when attached to a body), but both the tongue-flicking and vibration make decent noise. The tongue-flicking makes a whirring noise while the vibration makes a high-pitched buzzing noise. Neither of them are particularly quiet, and joined together, they don't get quieter.
I would NOT attempt to use this in a household with anyone closer than a couple rooms away with closed doors between you. Especially on the higher settings, this can clearly be quite easily heard through a closed door.

How It Works
The nu Sensuelle Trinitii 3-in-1 oral sex toy has three buttons on the shaft. These three buttons control the three functions of the Trinitii: tongue-flicking, air suction, and vibrations.
Each one of these buttons uses the same control system to make it easy to control the entire toy. A single button press turns on the function. Another button press lets you cycle through the modes/speeds attached to that function. Pressing and holding the button will turn off the function. When you press the button again, the function will start back at the start of its progression; it doesn't remember which function you were on.
