the latest sex toys that are getting all the buzz promise to suckle your clitoris to sweet oblivion in minutes flat. And, as weird as it sounds, for many people, that’s a really, really good thing.

If you’ve taken a tour of a sex shop lately, you’ve probably noticed that there are a lot of goddam sex toys in the world. Like, a lot. And, while a lot of them are good and some of them are great and the rest of them are, well, not so good, a lot of them are also kind of similar. And then, every once in a while, someone comes out with a toy that does something different, something new, a toy that provides a brand-new sensation and experience. Recently, that new sensation has popped up in a couple of toys in the form of suction.

Yup, the latest sex toys that are getting all the buzz promise to suckle your clitoris to sweet oblivion in minutes flat. And, as weird as it sounds, for many people, that’s a really, really good thing.


Suction Sex Toys?

The toys in question here are the Womanizer and the Satisfyer. Now, these toys do have their differences, and each has a few different models, but they both stimulate the clitoris using what they refer to as “pleasure air” or “pressure wave” technology. These toys are designed to form a seal around the clitoris and then blow pulses of air at it.

If this sounds weird, well, it kind of is. But it also works. In fact, many reviewers say they experienced intense orgasms in mere minutes.

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!
