Review: Satisfyer Lipstick Vibrator / Satisfyer Ice Cream “Spinnator”

The cheapest Satisfyer product (that’s rechargeable) is the Satisfyer lipstick vibrators ($24.99 each): Secret Affair (pictured in this review) and Sparkling Darling (same power, different button controls). TL;DR: These Satisfyer vibrators are quite strong for their price, and Sparkling Darling is much easier to operate than Secret Affair. I’ll compare the two Satisfyer lipstick vibes vs. an affordable bullet vibe favorite, the BMS Essential Bullet; and give tips on how to use them. But I have a favorite Satisfyer vibe that’s $5 more…

Satisfyer-cheapest_-Satisfyer-bullet-review-vs-Satisfyer-Sweet-Treat-review-rotating-vibrator

The Satisfyer Sweet Treat ice cream “spinnator” is the best true novelty sex toy I’ve ever owned. This is 100% worth the $30 price if you (1) like a soft touch rubbing against you, and/or (2) are obsessed with ice cream like I am. I love this little ice cream cone, it’s so fun I had to speed up this review writing! I’ll take you through its functions and describe the feel, so you can ask yourself: Would you like Sweet Treat or a firmer bullet better?

Satisfyer Sweet Treat Ice Cream Spinnator

I tried leading with the Satisfyer bullets, but… The Sweet Treat is my favorite here, the funnest rotating sex toy I own.

At first glance, I thought Sweet Treat looked cheesy, like a cheap bachelorette party favor. Not a true pleasure product. BUT WAIT, hold that judgment—in reality, the Satisfyer Sweet Treat combines two things I truly love in life:

  • Soft silicone, rubbing on me
  • ICE CREAM

Maybe Sweet Treat is a little cutesy… but also quite orgasmic for me. It’s all down to those swirling silicone tips.

Sweet Treat, My Experience

I love soft silicone things massaging me externally. Because: Squishy silicone offers comfort—it’s not too hard for a sensitive clit. And it can be awesomely texture-filled too, like if you jerk a good fantasy dildo or wand topper over the vulva. It’s softness plus more stimulation: win-win if you’re a fan of cumming by grinding on things.

The Satisfyer Sweet Treat rotating vibrator is like a fantasy toy came to life and started moving itself for me. Hell yes.

These silicone flaps, you see them? The pink below. They’re pointy, so I was a little scared since I don’t like sharp objects near my clit. But they are truly soft silicone, yay! So very flexible. In fact, they’re approximately a 2A Shore durometer, the same pretty-darn-soft firmness as my favorite handmade G-spot dildo.

Sweet Treat’s easy to operate: hold the + button down to turn on (or off). Then use the – and + buttons to cycle thru the 15 functions.

Sweet Treat’s got 8 longer flaps that form a circle up top, then 8 shorter flaps interspacing the longer ones. And they all swirl together, spinning, in 10 functions. In those different functions, you get your choice of: They go clockwise, they go counterclockwise, or they change directions partway through; they go at one speed, or they complete one rotation then halt for a half-second and spin again.

đź“ťNote: Please use a good lube with this toy, unless you are really, really naturally wet all the time. Sweet Treat will be less comfortable spinning dry.

As far as I can tell, there are 3 steady spinning speeds. The fastest one honestly isn’t too much faster than the lowest. And then come the change-direction functions.

Wait for a sentence I never could’ve foreseen myself typing in a vibrator review: I like the “patterns” (the non-steady rotation) as much as the consistent speeds. OMG. Usually I’m such a fan of steady vibration, because pulses and breaks in the vibration don’t make my clit orgasm well. Consistency is key.

Not so with the Satisfyer “Spinnator” here. I’m a fan of the highest steady speed, the third function; and then I get really into the fifth and sixth functions. Those twirl one way, then the other, back and forth—like windshield wipers made to softly massage your clit.

The Satisfyer Sweet Treat is vibrator-esque, but not actually a vibrator. The draw here is the pulling, the moving, of those soft silicone tips.

If you’re a fan of motion—being rubbed on externally, or rocking your hips to grind on toys or pillows or balls or whatever—then this toy is indeed a treat. It’s not pinpoint clit focus, because the flaps fold down when you press on them; and it’s not hard pressure. It’s soft rubbing.

I come much more easily from external fingering than from a focused bullet vibrator,1 so letting the Sweet Treat swirl for me is A+! Its rotation is like rubbing a dildo on myself, except my wrist is doing less work.

See it in motion! đź’– the soft silicone flaps.

To add to the Satisfyer Spinnator’s natural rotation, I like to change it up and move the silicone tips up and down my vulva. Down one lip, and then the other; around my clit; and even inserting Sweet Treat’s soft tips just inside my vagina. Finally, I move the Sweet Treat’s focus back right underneath my clit, so I’m coming best.

And that, my friends, is why I love my little ice cream cone—the “novelty” item that’s turned out to be right up my “squishy-silicone-loving” alley.

Satisfyer Vs. Other Rotating Vibrators

I’ve written about rotating toys before, but the focus was on insertables: spinning dildos, gyrating rabbit vibe shafts, and rotating butt plugs. That’s because rotating external vibes are rarer!

But self-propelled toys are booming, so we are seeing new ideas.2 Like: the Satisfyer Sweet Treat Spinnator here, which I’m compare vs. the Lora DiCarlo Filare.

Imagine how expectant I was to try out the Filare “oral sex stimulator” after I hadn’t had cunnilingus personally for like 15 months.

And, I mean, I guess the motion is interesting, but HELL if I’ve ever managed to orgasm on this $180 piece of “biomimetic technology.” The issue: Filare’s beads can spin pretty good, but they’re enclosed underneath a layer of firm silicone. They don’t pop out enough, they don’t emerge from the toy like the Sweet Treat’s floppy ice-cream tips. They’re too set into Filare’s body. And Filare is oval and a bit bulky, harder to move up and down. And I certainly can’t tease my vaginal opening with it successfully.

The Satisfyer Sweet Treat is $150 cheaper and gets me off without any problems. Every time, if I only spend a few minutes moving it across my sensitive spots.

Neither toy feels like oral sex. And that’s OK. The Satisfyer Sweet Treat is actually more fun for me than real-life oral without internal fingering. There’s just something marvelous about pressing its soft flaps down all around and into my vulva, my clit, even inserting the inch of soft silicone for a vaginal spin.

Pressure Resistance

Note that the Sweet Treat has some limits. You can make the toy stop if you press down onto the cone firmly. For example, I tried using it scrunched between my thighs once while I was standing: and since I had the whole rotating head surrounded, with nowhere to go, it stopped.

The saving grace is that if you’re pressing a little hard but not a lot hard, and the Sweet Treat stops gyrating, you just move it back half an inch or whatever—and it’s swirling ’round again. No need to hold down the + button to restart its motion.

That makes Sweet Treat so much more usable for me when I’ve stuck it in my vag a couple times… a tad too deep, so the whole silicone head was covered… and stalled it out. Again, just pull it back slightly, and Sweet Treat is up and running and I can let it flick against my labia again, good as new.

Sweet Treat Rotating Vibrator Cleaning

As noted, the ice cream part is a soft silicone, so it’s stickier than the plastic of the cone. It’ll attract hair and such. Just wash to clean. Soap and water works well, and run your fingers into the center of the cream, and around any flaps where you see fluids and lube sitting. Yes, it does take more work than a normal vibrator, the only real drawback for Sweet Treat for me.

I felt compelled to stick my tongue into the swirling Sweet Treat in this demo, so I got lipstick on it, and hadda clean that off the silicone afterward. That took a couple minutes of scrubbing, with 70% isopropyl alcohol plus soap and water. Clean as new.

Do store this toy downward while drying: With the cone-bottom sticking up in the air, so water doesn’t sit between the flaps. Shake it out before you leave it to dry.

The tips are not perfect: slightly uneven, with dots and blips down the long flaps’ inside. That’s because soft silicone is harder to cast perfectly and tends to have slight imperfections. No worries, it’s safe and sanitizable silicone. As is the ABS plastic of the “cone” itself. The Sweet Treat is waterproof submersible.

Satisfyer Secret Affair Lipstick Vibrator Review

A big power bullet for 25 bucks. Vibrator pricing just keeps getting better and better—it’s a good time to be a fan of sex toys.

The Satisfyer “Secret Affair” and “Sparkling Darling” (same vibe functions, different colors) are actually stronger than the We-Vibe Tango (including the new Tango X).

Satisfyer bullets are powerful, but also high-pitched. Buzzier than a We-Vibe product. They’re along the lines of the Nu Sensuelle Point Plus: Use Satisfyer’s Secret Affair on the higher speeds (out of 6 steady intensities) for long, and your fingers will tingle.

Secret Affair and Sparkling Darling can be classed as “lipstick vibrators” because they have a removable cap, like a lipstick does. (But they don’t have slanted tip for focus, like the comparable Nocturnal Bullet does.) You take the Satisfyer bullets’ plastic cover off to reveal a smooth, matte silicone beneath.

I like the feel of this silicone: it’s firm, but has a certain skin-like quality. Secret Affair’s silicone has the kind of touch that reminds me why I personally prefer silicone over the ĂĽber-slickness of glass, plastic, and metal toys. It simply feels more natural to me.

Satisfyer says you can use the bullet with plastic cap / travel cover on too, and that’s true, you could. (Even if I personally am confused about why you’d want to do that.) But. No matter what, you need to remove the shiny cap to turn on the vibrator. More on that next.

How to Operate Satisfyer Secret Affair

This Satisfyer bullet—Secret Affair, not Sparkling Darling—is unusual in terms of how to control it. You may think yours is dead / not working, first, if you don’t follow these steps:

Time needed: 1 minute.

How To Turn On Satisfyer Bullet: Secret Affair

  1. Remove the plastic cap.

    Take off the rose-gold cover of Secret Affair.

  2. Hold the plastic body (marked with “Satisfyer”).

    It’s easier with your non-dominant hand: that’s the left hand, for most of us.

  3. Twist the silicone top.

    Clockwise, with your other hand. About 20 degrees?

  4. A glowing circle will light up.

    Right above the SF letters.

  5. Press on / around that lit-up circle to change functions.

    It’s got 15 functions, total.

  6. Twist the silicone tip the other direction to deactivate the vibes.

    You can also hold down the glowing button for 5 seconds to stop vibration. But not twisting the tip will leave the vibe on standby, draining power.

The glowing button on Secret Affair isn’t raised up from the vibe body, and it’s “touch sensitive.” So I’ve found myself bumping it and changing speeds by accident, even accidentally turning the vibrator off. If you’re someone who jerks your vibrators over your clit to orgasm, like me, then for sure opt for a different toy.

Like the Sparkling Darling by Satisfyer, which has actual raised control buttons (+ and –) that you can’t accidentally press, and that allow you to decrease power much more easily. Move down 1 intensity level without powering off or cycling through! Sparkling Darling also has a textured handle that’s easier to grip, and that may shield your fingers from the high-pitched vibes a lil more.

Recap: The rose gold of Secret Affair certainly seems sexy at first, but there’s no way I would’ve chosen this vibrator over the Sparkling Darling had I realized the difference. Sparkling Darling is simply better to control.

Power vs. BMS Essential Bullet

So Sparkling Darling ($24.99) is a strong pick: But how does it compare to the very cheap BMS Essential Bullet ($21.00), which I frequently recommend?

BMS Essential Bullet vs. Satisfyer Secret Affair review
Essential Bullet includes the little hard storage case, left; super-duper convenient.

I would class the Satisfyer Bullets as a 9/10 on my bullet power scale, which is good. It’s edging toward that “wand vibe”-kinda strong level that the Blush Exposed bullet practically bangs you over the head with.

That means Sparkling Darling is slightly stronger than the Esssential Bullet. Still, it’s also buzzier than the Essential Bullet.

In the end, that means that I would personally pick the Essential Bullet to use on my clit first. Satisfyer vibrator motors are, without fail, buzzy. And the BMS Essential Bullet—though not quite Tango-level rumbly—delivers deeper vibrations overall.

Vs. Satisfyer Curvy

Since we’re talking the cheapest Satisfyer, I have to throw these air-pulse vibrators: Satisfyer Curvys are frankly unbeatable for $40. See my fuller review here. They’re “suction” stimulators like the original Satisfyer toys, imitating Womanizer—plus each Satisfyer Curvy has 10 vibe functions, if desired. (Its air pulsation and vibration can be used separately, or both at once.)

I’m a particular fan of Curvy 3+ because I like the smaller, softer mouth compared to the Satisfyer Pro 2. I would definitely pick up a Curvy 3 and Sweet Treat for myself (if I didn’t own them already)—they’re becoming fast favorites!

Review Recap & Ranking

I’m totally fan-girling over the Satisfyer Sweet Treat ice cream spinner in this “cheapest Satisfyer” comparison. The spin-rubbing feels great in soft silicone for me. Too cute, and way more effective than I’d expected.

I can see why someone might prefer the Sparkling Darling bullet, though: the vibration + flat, firm tip can deliver more powerful pressure. The longer length of the Sparkling Darling (or Secret Affair, if you don’t mind the touch-y controls) is easier to grasp than the BMS Essential Bullet—though in the end I commend the Essential Bullet for being not high-pitched / buzzy like the Satisfyer bullet.

NOTES

  1. That means I like this toy more than the We-Vibe Tango!
  2. “Moving tongue”-type vibes are hotter too: from the pricey Zalo Hero, to the CalEx Casanova vibes, to the 3-in-1 Sensuelle Trinitii and Maia Destiny, and even the Fantasy for Her pump-vibrator-tongue. (Christ I’m going to have to write a moving-tongue vibrator guide now.) All those toys’ flip-flapping motion runs up and down, rather than ’round and ’round.
