You get the idea. So why are these toys getting such rave reviews? Let’s take a look.
Why – and How – Does Suction Work?
Suction isn’t a new idea when it comes to sexual stimulation. Pumps designed to increase blood flow to the clitoris and labia have been around for a long time. But while these products helped expedite arousal, they couldn’t push anyone over the edge. Plus, most of them are kind of a handful in a way that makes them impractical and unsexy.
This new line of toys takes the idea of suction further. They include a silicone nozzle designed to fit right over the clitoris and form a seal. This creates a gentle suction, which is then combined with pulses or blasts of air and mild vibration to stimulate the clitoris effectively and with minimal effort from the user – some people can even go hands free!
When the clitoris becomes engorged, it becomes more sensitive to touch, and also more able to receive touch pleasurably. This is why foreplay is so important! What suction sex toys do is combine both suction and stimulation, creating the perfect storm for a quick, intense orgasm.
Reviewers have described the sensation variously as “suckling,” “nibbling” and “tapping,” and even “alien” and “magic.” Some reviewers also felt that it mimicked the sensation of oral sex.
How to Use a Suction Sex Toy
Using a suction sex toy is simple, but note that it’s a lot different than the clitoral vibes you may be used to. Because these toys rely on forming a seal around the clitoris, you can’t be moving the toy – or yourself – around. To use the toy, apply it to your clitoris (you may need to move those labia out of the way!), find a setting that feels good and just, kind of, wait. It’s a very passive way to orgasm, but that’s what many people love about these toys!
Suction Sex Toy Models to Try

The Womanizer W500 is an upgraded version of the Womanizer that includes more intensity levels, a smoother, waterproof body and a more ergonomic shape.
The Satisfyer Pro 2 is one of the more basic models in the Satisfyer line. It is fully waterproof and provides 11 intensity levels. Some people prefer its longer handle and deeper suction cap.

This one's a bit of a favorite over at Kinkly. It's beautiful, it's powerful and the cruise function kicks into high gear right when you need it, ensuring plenty of pleasure.
