Suction Cup Dildo Solutions: Ideas for Hands-Free Toying

silicone suction cup dildosLooking to screw yourself totally hands-free? Or does your wrist just need a break every now and then? If so, a suction cup dildo is a great solution. But it’s easy to miss that there are lots of options beyond the typical (usually realistic) dildo with a built-in suction cup! For the past several years, I’ve tested lots of different suction cup toys and lots of different suction cup positions too, and here’s what I’ve discovered:

  1. Yes, many silicone dildos do have built-in suction cups. Besides the realistic kind, there are also more-abstract and fantasy options. Silicone is the only body-safe material for suction cup dildos. But be careful not to buy suction cup dildos made out of PVC, TPR, UR3, latex, etc., and don’t trust just any Amazon listing!
  2. Dildos with bullet holes (for a small, bullet-style vibe) typically will also fit the Tantus suction cup attachment. Vac-U-Lock-holed toys + Doc Johnson’s suction cup work the same way.
  3. Buy double-sided suction cups (preferably NYTC’s new silicone one!) to stick on the flat base of most suction-cup-less dildos.
  4. Dildo mounts (like Liberator sex pillows) allow you to put a dildo in a hole in the pillow/stick a dildo on top and then ride away.
  5. Buy a thigh harness, put any dildo in it, and wrap it around your favorite (flat) pillow to ride.

Built-In-Suction-Cup Dildos

There are a lot of silicone suction cupped options, but these are the ones I feel really confident recommending as quality, safe toys. I’ve broken them down into realistic, semi-realistic, and fantasy categories below.

Realistic

Most realistic, suction cup dildos are inexpensive because they’re mass-produced in China. These cheaper options include:

The dildos listed above are great for many people, but if you’re sensitive, know that their silicone tends to run a tad firm, around the 20A-shore range.2 Thankfully, there are also a few softer realistic options with built-in suction cups:

Semi-Realistic/Abstract

Here are some details about quality, semi-realistic toys with suction cup bases:

Other options include the Packer Gear silicone line, which I haven’t tried; and the Maia Kendall and Maia Riley lines, which I strongly dislike because the silicone is extra firm and doesn’t bend with my body. Also, I didn’t find the suction cup of my Maia Kendall that great; it was passable.

I would recommend against the CalExotics Silicone Emperor Vibrating line because the PVC suction cups screw off the silicone dongs, leaving the battery compartments exposed. This means that you can neither boil the toys nor soak them in a 10%-bleach solution. You could try dousing them in rubbing alcohol, but…there are so many good options out there that don’t include PVC.

Fantasy

Some (not all) of Bad Dragon’s and Exotic Erotics’ toys can include a suction cup as an optional add-on. Twin Tail Creations is a good option too: a suction cup can be added to all their current toys, though it works best on the ones without balls. Plus, the new maker Lust Arts has a very nifty-looking Unicorn Horn with an optional suction base and customizable firmness.

Twin Tail Creations’ Cortez has an excellent suction cup.

For me, the biggest benefit of fantasy toys is that they typically come in softer densities: they’re much more yielding to the touch, and flexible inside your body. Plus there are so many textures available! Read more about why I love fantasy sex toys here.

Bullet-Hole Dildos + Suction Cup Attachments

Tantus Suction Cup Attachment

I highly recommend Tantus’ suction cup accessoryIt’s high-quality silicone that you can fully sanitize. It sticks well on very smooth, flat surfaces but can still detach itself from more textured surfaces (like a bumpy, painted wall). Because the suction cup isn’t actually part of the dildo’s base, toys can wiggle back and forth/up and down more this way. I prefer the Tantus suction cup on horizontal surfaces (like my fave nightstand) because I can’t quite get the upward angle I prefer when it’s stuck to the wall.

Vixen Creations Woody Vibrating + Tantus suction cup.

You can insert the Tantus suction cup in any dildo with a standard bullet hole in place of a bullet vibe. Here are my top bullet-holed picks:

Vac-U-Lock Suction Cup

Another kind of dildo hole is the Vac-U-Lock hole, created by Doc Johnson. This hole is a good bit wider than the standard bullet hole, especially at the top, so the Tantus suction cup and tapered bullets (see the We-Vibe Tango) will wiggle around in these holes—and may even fall out.

There are all kinds of “Vac-U-Lock attachments” that can fit in these holes. Unfortunately, none of them are made entirely of materials that you can sanitize, so I’d recommend replacing them occasionally (every eight months or so?) if you get bodily fluids on them. Here’s the frosted Vac-U-Lock suction cup, and the large Vac-U-Lock suction cup (which supposedly holds more weight). I haven’t tried the latter, but I found the former to be just OK on flat horizontal surfaces and pretty bad on vertical surfaces.

Double-Sided Suction Cups

If you have the perfect (but sadly suction-cup-less dildo) already, then check out some double-sided suction cups. 

When I first wrote this post, I could only find PVC double-sided suction cups (more on that next). But now New York Toy Collective has released silicone Double Sided Suction Cup for only $10. I think it’s a really great solution for smooth surfaces. This is a big deal because the silicone suction cup can be fully sanitized and won’t leach chemicals onto your silicone toy bases. Read my full review to see exactly what toys and surfaces it does and doesn’t work with.

Before NYTC came out with its silicone suction cup, I was OK with this set of cheap suction cups I bought on Amazon. The multiple stickers adhere really well to flat surfaces and can hold a good amount of weight. (Though they tend to make annoying popping noises when they come detached.) But…the PVC suction cups smell. I definitely made sure to wash my silicone toys well after using them, to remove any plasticizers that might have leached onto the base. Also, I think that they’re likely to retain bacteria, so I eventually tossed mine. 

Dildo Mounts

Liberator, the leading brand in sex positioning pillows, now offers three toy mounts for hands-free riding: the Wing, at 24″ long x 15″ wide x 9″ high; the smaller (but taller) BonBon, at 15″ long x 8.5″ wide x 12″ high; and the Pulse, which allows you to rock back and forth. Or buy the Wing or BonBon from Liberator on Amazon; this is one of the few sex toys that I would recommend getting there, since many dildos and vibes on Amazon claim to be body-safe but are actually made of porous materials.4

I recently bought a Liberator Wing, and I think it’s very nice for simulating cowgirl overall. I do have an issue with it: the dildo hole is not very wide. I have to struggle to fit even my smaller5-based Tantus realistics in, and my Vixen Large Realistic Bent is even more of a challenge. The problem is that the pocket is meant to hold small, thinner vibes too, so that the rider can grind against them. (I wish Liberator would make a toy mount with a hole specifically for medium- to large-sized dildos instead of one that you have to struggle to get your flared base into.) After I manage to get my dildo situated, though, I’ve had some really great orgasms riding toys on it, and it saves my wrists.

Or, if your toy already has a suction cup, you might consider the T.O.M. dildo mount (read my full review here). It’s made of plastic, so not as comfortable to sit on, but it offers multiple angles and is better geared toward doggy style. Shorter users may find the top mount a bit tall (especially with longer dildos), while taller women and most men may find the angled sides too short. I have to stick a pillow under mine to take advantage of the slanted sides.

Thigh Harness

VixSkin Maverick thigh harnessIt’s certainly possible to wrap a thigh harness around a very flat (or abnormally small) pillow. But I found it awkward to position all my pillows comfortably, and they didn’t have the resistance that a Liberator pillow’s firm foam has. I also tried wrapping the harness around a lumbar support pillow, but that ended up being too short and also a bit awkward to position. I tried to solve this problem by adding towels underneath the pillow, which was slightly better but still a little awkward. If you’re less of a perfectionist than I am, this solution might work fine for you.

If you found this guide useful, please consider buying through the affiliate links used in this post. You pay the same price as you would normally—or 10% less at some of my affiliates when you use my discount codes—and I earn a few bucks so I can justify all the time I spend trying to write quality sex toy reviews and keeping the Silicone Dildo Guide totally up-to-date.

I strongly recommend Peepshow Toys, SheVibe, VibrantGood Vibrations, and Tantus. Lovehoney also carries a wide range of options, though many are not body-safe. See my Where to Shop post for even more options.

  1. In my experience, “soft” often means “not absolutely rock hard” in silicone toy descriptions.
  2. See my Silicone Dildo Firmnesses page for more info.
  3. Woody, Leo, and Mistress also have vibrating versions, which you can stick a Tantus suction cup into. See later in this post for more about that option.
  4. I want to flame-test and cut into one of these Anfei “dual layer liquid silicone” dildos so bad. Mass-produced silicone dildos do not have a different-colored head like that, nor does the outer layer of (actual) silicone pull away from the core.
  5. But still flared.

    I’ve always wanted to try one like this! Have you ever heard the terrible story about a girl masturbating anally with her dildo stuck to her bedroom door and her mom walks in swings the door open and then is shocked and slams it shut again 😀

    Your guides are so helpful! I recently got the NYTC double-sided suction cup, but find it pretty hit-or-miss. It suctions to my dildos well, but not to other surfaces.

    This is so helpful! Any experience with the LoveArc? It looks so tempting, but it’s expensive and probably not the most easily disguised package…
