Womanizer vs. Satisfyer vs. Lelo Sona: Best Clit Suction Stimulators Ranking

Womanizer vs. Satisfyer vs. Sona 2

Blow me?!? Have u ever wondered: What’s the difference between Womanizer vs. Satisfyer vs. Lelo Sona? I study & rank the 12 best Womanizer-style “clit suction vibrators” comparatively here, based on extensive testing. They’re all fiercely stimulating: going right for the clit & giving it everything they’ve got. Their pulsing technology has a certain passion about it—and I respect that.

These top clit “suction vibrators”1 all surround the clitoris and blow air out onto it. Their intensity levels range from “white & fluffy clouds” to “A tornado is coming!” I’ve never seen anyone describe precisely how Womanizer, Satisfyer, and Lelo Sona vary in terms of sensation, so I’ve spent two months analyzing the distinct feelings these “Pleasure Air” vs. “pressure wave” vs. “SenSonic” pulsators create. Plus my complete speed chart below ranks the intensity of each toy, with a dot for every single speed level.

A quick best-of & top recommendations for pressure waves / suction toys:

  • We-Vibe Melt: Most sucky (in the good way); Easiest during vaginal sex; My favorite!!!
  • Satisfyer Duals (Pleasure & Love): Best for the first-time buyer & perfect for air-pulse toy fans too. Good power and good speed range for the pulsing air, PLUS you can switch to the vibrating end (opposite side from the air-pulse mouth) anytime: I love the variety here.
  • Lora DiCarlo Baci: Incredibly rumbly vibe-pulsing. Tears of joy.
  • Womanizer Premium: Thuddiest pulsing tech, whoa! Also found in the excellent G-spot vibrating Womanizer Duo.

If you’re looking for *intense* + clit stimulation, then you’re in the right place! Only wand vibrators (ranking here) can compete with air pulsation toys for sheer orgasmic power.2

Womanizer vs. Satisfyer vs. Sona Sensation

Satisfyer vs. Womanizer, Womanizer vs. Sona—Do They Feel Different?

Yes, yes, they absolutely do! To explain the differences between Womanizer, Satisfyer, Sona, and Melt, I’ve devised a “thuddy vs. flappy” divide. It’s like the “rumbly vs. buzzy” dichotomy that sex bloggers often employ in vibrator reviews.

Thuddy pulsations have more impact and, to me, feel higher-quality—though others may prefer flappy pulsations, like how occasionally I’ll see someone specifically looking for surface-level (buzzy) vibrations. In summary:

  1. (New) Womanizer toys are, without fail, thuddy. Overall it’s thumpity-thump-thump, with a bit of flip-flappy-ness on the very highest intensities.
  2. Satisfyer pulsations are more flappy throughout. (To match, Satisfyer vibe motors are quite buzzy.) On higher levels, the Pro 2 sounds more shrill—more like an electric toothbrush. Satisfyer has improved this lately, luckily, with the new Dual Pleasure / Love and Curvys sounding less racous.
  3. The We-Vibe Melt is most sucky (due to the flexible mouth), with a good degree of thuddiness underneath.
  4. Lelo Sonas are vibro-pulsation. (I could’ve sworn mine had a vibrating motor too, for 20 seconds the first time I used it.) I get the “sonic waves” marketing, because Sona resounds a *little* deeper into the internal clit. Or, if you’re looking for a toy that will practically assault your clit with vibrating pulses, see the Vedo Suki; it strong. Or the Inya Rose vibrator’s extremely powerful for $39.99 — for anyone whose clit wants A LOT, from start to finish.
  5. The Lora DiCarlo Baci is thrumming-pulsation that stimulates more of clitoral shaft and labia, as well as the clit head you can see. Fast, but on high it’s not as aggressive-feeling as Womanizer Premium and Classic. It’s similar to the Lelo Sonas, but IMO stimulates deeper; and I personally prefer Baci to the Inya Rose due to Baci’s lower speed options & easier button control.

So how *fast* do these all go?

Pulsation Intensity Chart

This chart marks the intensity of each pulsation function in each of my 12 best Womanizer style toys, with a dot. From slow (left side) to fast (right side), here’s how Womanizer, Melt, Sona, and Satisfyer stack up for air-pulse speed, chart below. TL;DR: Womanizer Premium ($199) has the best speed range overall; Satisfyer Duals are IMO the best beginner option due to their lower start, vibrating functionality, & cheaper price ($40.95); and Vedo Suki ($54.99) is strongest on high — with the Inya Rose ($39.99) coming in a close second.

We-Vibe Melt (#1)

We-Vibe Melt: 10 out of 10 intensity; Full review here
Shop We-Vibe Melt ($149.99)

The We-Vibe Melt is my first love in terms of air pulsation stimulators, and the reason this guide exists. I’ve read many a rave review from other users since 2019, as well. Melt’s flexible oval mouth latches on and practically nibbles at my clit. I believe it’s the air pulsation stimulator that’s most like oral sex.3 This is a strong toy, and takes a little getting used to, is the only complaint I’ve heard from a few real-life Melt users. It’s Womanizer’s original Pleasure Air technology, improved with a more comfortable shape.

The We-Vibe Melt’s shape is über-convenient: I love sitting on it while writing reviews (!!!) and it’s made to fit better between bodies during penis-in-vag sex. It’s much easier to use while squeezing around / lightly jerking a dildo, for example.

Left to right: Womanizer Premium, Womanizer Classic, We-Vibe Melt, & new Womanizer Pro 40.

And it’s hella strong: The lowest setting starts air pulsing faster than other Womanizer/Wow Tech products, and ends just as fast as Womanizer Premium. Levels 9 to 10 especially are insane: they lose some thuddiness, as the pulsations are *all in*. 

The We-Vibe Melt’s beautiful shape has lately been imitated by the Dame Aer: which isn’t quite as powerful on high, nor as easy to grip because it’s a lil bit shorter and thicker.

Satisfyer Curvy + Dual Pleasure & Dual Love (#2)

Satisfyer Duals: 8.5 out of 10 intensity; Review vs. Pro 2 here
Shop the 2 Duals ($40.95)

Satisfyer Curvy: 6.8 out of 10 intensity; Review vs. Pro 2 here
Shop the 3 Curvys ($39.95)

This is truly the next generation of Satisfyer toys, IMO surpassing the famous Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation. Satisfyer Dual Love and Dual Pleasure—and Satisfyer Curvy (3 models)—all have 11 air pulsation speeds, vibrate too (optional), and you can have a partner control them locally or long-distance via the Satisfyer app. Did I mention they’re all4 only about $40 too?!? Fantastic.

Satisfyer mouth size comparison Pro 2, Dual Love, Dual Pleasure, Curvy 3+
From top: Pro 2 Next Gen. (the classic); Dual Love (a good buy); Dual Pleasure (my fave Satisfyer, with the rumbliest vibes); and Curvy 3+ (my previous fave).

I personally would pick the Satisfyer Dual Pleasure first (over the Satisfyer Curvys) — my favorite Satisfyer model. Why? More options. Because in the Satisfyer Dual Pleasure and Dual Love, the opposite end from the air-pulsing mouth vibrates, meaning more variety. I love to start coming on the Dual Pleasure’s mouth, then flip the toy 180° degrees to rub off on the vibrating end. (Vs. in the Curvys, where the vibration comes out the mouth-hole and is harder to focus on your clit.) This is amazing if you’re not 100% sure you’re going to enjoy the feeling of an air pulse toy (not everyone loves it at first, and it was a learning process for me). You always have the more “normal” vibration to fall back on — and wait there’s more: The Satisfyer Dual Pleasure has the rumbliest vibrations of any Satisfyer toy I’ve ever felt. More on Dual Pleasure vs. Dual Love here.

Still the Curvy lineup is worth checking out too: I go into depth about the differences between Curvy 1+ vs. 2+ vs. 3+ in this review. I’m the biggest fan of Satisfyer Curvy 3+, bottom in the above pic: it’s got a smaller, more flexible mouth. Before the Satisfyer Duals, I said it was hard to beat the Curvys’ “orgasms per dollar value.” Do note: They’re not feeling quite as strong as Satisfyer Pro 2 to me (25% less powerful on high), and the Curvy vibration is buzzy / high-pitched (but pretty powerful).

Lora DiCarlo Baci (#3)

Lora DiCarlo Baci: 10.25 out of 10 intensity; Full review here
Shop Baci ($160.00)

A toy whose thrumming intensity is worth its price tag: I’m impressed. Lora DiCarlo, a newbie company, has created an “airflow” toy that can rival Womanizers, then some. The Baci has a thrumming resonance underneath its pulses: it’s like vibration, but also thumps. And the Baci’s intensity range is just slightly better than the We-Vibe Melt’s. Plus the vibration is intensely rumbly. Baci is a rare toy that makes tears start pooling in my eyes, a minute before I come repeatedly. And that’s only on speed #7 of 10! I enjoy the more reverberating feel of Baci, how it does stimulate more of the clitoral shaft and nearby inner labia with its power. It’s fast-paced, but not as aggressive as the Womanizer Premium when each toy is on high.

Lora DiCarlo Baci review suction stimulator hearts

My only issues with Baci, and why I still use the We-Vibe Melt a little more personally, are that (1) Baci has a very fine rim to its mouth, slightly less comfortable for the sensitive user; and (2) Baci’s body is bulkier and does not curve up toward the belly button, so Baci is tougher to use (than Melt) during vaginal play like PIV sex. Baci is a very rounded shape that fits swimmingly between my thighs; I love sitting on this vibrating pulsator. It’s meant to be “palm-held”: you press your palm onto its bottom to apply more pressure. Also note that the vibrating effect is built into the air pulsation, it’s not an independent function like in the Satisfyer Curvys.

Womanizer Classic & Premium (#4)

Womanizer Classic: 9.5 out of 10 intensity, vs. Premium’s 10/10; Full comparison review here
Shop: Classic ($89.99) and Premium ($199)

Wait for my point here: So I’ve got this Lindt chocolate bar sitting on my desk, with the word “EXCELLENCE” written really big under the brand name.5 That’s how I feel about Womanizer: it’s a brand that makes excellent products. The originator, the start of the air-pulse craze. But have they now been surpassed by other brands? Hmm.

Womanizer Classic and Premium are similar toys that I compare-contrast in detail here. The Classic is a beautiful toy, but I’m most sold on the Premium’s:

  • more-thuddy quality,
  • full silicone coating (and more color choices—5 shades!),
  • and upward-curved handle.

That leads me to the other big difference between the two. Premium has a better speed range than Classic: 4 more pulsation speeds—a couple slower (and deeper!), and a final speed that surpasses Classic’s already WHOA intensity. If you enjoy either gentle, whispery build-up or super-thumping speed, then Premium is best for both. It also has a Smart Silence function that I find pretty useless. (It doesn’t make the toy quieter when it’s pressed against your clitoris, where it’s supposed to be!)

And if you want a G-spot plus clit toy, the the Womanizer Duo has the Premium’s intense pulses plus really rumbly vibration. It’s squirting-level good.

Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation (#5)

Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation: 9 out of 10 intensity
Shop Satisfyer Pro 2 NG ($49)

A sex toy classic. The Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation is a popular, budget-friendly clit stimulator. Satisfyer air pulsators are uniformly lower-priced than Womanizer ones, but still come with a good speed range. Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation starts and ends maybe 5% slower than Womanizer Premium, with 11 speeds vs. Premium’s 12. Not much difference there.

So you get a lot of range, a lot of options, for much less than a Womanizer. Many clits love the Satisfyer Pro 2 and can come superbly on them.

That said, if you’re clitorally critical / like rumbly vibrators, Satisfyer toys are more surface-level than Womanizer ones. Flappy air pulsing vs. Womanizer. They feel less resonant—it’s more surface stimulation. Because of this and the Satisfyer Pro 2’s very large opening, thick mouth, and generally big head, I don’t enjoy this toy as much personally. I like the smaller, more grippable Satisfyer Pro Penguin better! Isn’t it cute? Still, I’d buy the Dual Pleasure over Satisfyer Pro Penguin because I like the Dual Pleasure’s versatile vibration option.

Womanizer Liberty (#6)

Womanizer Liberty: 9 out of 10 intensity; Full review here
Shop Womanizer Liberty ($99.00)

Best Womanizer under $100. The Womanizer Liberty matches Womanizer Classic’s next-to-highest level—and it’s more conveniently sized. I can totally close this thing between my thighs and use it hands-free. (I might even be doing so right now.)

Womanizer Liberty review vs. Womanizer Classic Premium-1
Left to right: Womanizer Classic, Womanizer Premium, and Womanizer Liberty.

Liberty is the best value for thuddy Womanizer air pulsing. You get a toy that reaches Womanizer Classic intensity #7 of 8, or Womanizer Premium intensity #10.5 of 12, for $30 and $100 cheaper, respectively. The downside? There’s a big jump between Womanizer Liberty functions #5 and #6. If you like to escalate more slowly on the higher end of the speed range, definitely pick up a Classic or Premium instead. (Premium has the widest intensity range overall, the most variety.)

Like Classic and Premium, Liberty has the two barely-different-sized, removable mouths. Unlike either of those toys, it includes a plastic cover so you can not have the mouth exposed while you’re storing it or traveling with it.

And (unlike Womanizer Classic), Liberty’s available in 5 different colors! I’m loving the powder blue + silver accented one I own.

Lelo Sona 2 and Sona 2 Cruise (#6)

Vs. Lelo Sila

Lelo Sona 2: 9 out of 10 intensity, vs. 9.5/10 for Sona 2 Cruise; Full review here
Shop Lelo SenSonic Sonas & Sila here ($69 to $169.99)

I call Lelo Sona 2 & Sona 2 Cruise “vibro-flutterers.” They have this “SenSonic” sonic wave technology that makes the pulsations feel totally different. It’s like a vibrating element added underneath the blowing air. (Now equaled, and even surpassed, by the Lora DiCarlo Baci, discussed above.)

The revamped Sona 2 & Sona 2 Cruise have a pulse plate that’s deeper into the hole, to avoid it accidentally grabbing anyone’s clit. (I feel 100% safe using the original Sona & Lelo Sona Cruise—but anatomy does vary.) The mouth in Sona 2 is fractionally wider, and has a slight upward-curved rim that I find less comfortable but am able to ignore once I get going. Indeed, all Lelo Sonas make me feel like crying, then coming hard.

So what’s the difference between the Sona and Sona Cruise? Cruise Control is the function that adds $30 to Sona 2’s price. Basically, it makes Sona Cruises jump up in power when you press hard on the mouth. I don’t like this, having speed ramped up almost against my will, and would recommend the cheaper non-Cruise Control version, which I feel is more consistent because you have complete control via the buttons. That said, the Cruise Control version goes harder on high speed, is more intense. Both Sona 2 models start on high when you hit the + button, but you can dial it down to go as slow as Womanizer Classic speed #1. No Lelo Sona gets as fast as Womanizer toys (besides Starlet 2), but it feels like MORE because of the whole SenSonic effect and the tight fit.

Lelo Sila review vs. Lelo Sona 2 featured
Sila, left, lilac; Sona 2, right, black.

And versus the newer Sila: Sila is quieter, and has rumblier vibes. Plus a few folks have complained that the Sona’s tightness has injured them, so if you’ve got a big clit, then Sila will be the obvious choice. For average size clits, though, the Sila’s LORGE mouth makes the pulsation feel less intense: full comparison here. How much strength do you need? The Sila’s teardrop shape is interesting to experiment with, and Sila’s vibrations are almost G-spot vibrator-width—so my labia get more stimulation. Downsides, though: Sila’s button placement is awkward, on the underside of the toy so you have to memorize which way is up and down (the buttons are easy to confuse too). And unlike the Lelo Sona, the Lelo Sila is not a suction toy. Sona has mild suction, if you get the right fit; vs. with Sila, which is air pulsing pressure waves all the way. In the end, if you’re wondering: Satisfyer or Lelo, the Satisfyer Duals will give you more for a better price — unless you like a tight clitoral seal, then the Sona is still a good choice.

Inya Rose Vibrator, by NS

10.5 out of 10 intensity; Full review here
Shop Rose Vibrator by NS Novelties ($39.99)

Rose vibrator_ NS Inya Review, suction mouth size in hand

This “viral” sex toy got real popular, real fast because it is BAM 💥 in terms of power — not to mention, it’s cheap and it’s damn cute too. The Rose vibrator that’s part of NS Novelties’ Inya line has 3 steady vibrating/suction intensities, and LOW power is like the Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Gen. on HIGH. (I can’t guarantee that all Rose vibrators have this same power motor, as I’ve heard reports that the Sohimi one is less strong.) The Inya Rose has pretty rumbly vibration to start, and then surpasses the We-Vibe Melt’s power. Overall, this Rose reminds me most of the Lora DiCarlo Baci — but Baci with its first 7 speeds completely eliminated. Don’t let the Rose’s adorable body fool you, it’s a power tool through and through! Do not expect a gentle warmup from this toy.

Other Choices: In a Nutshell

I’m cutting down the bulk here, because we have so many options!

  • I am no longer recommending the Satisfyer Pro 2 & Pro 3 Vibration because I believe the Satisfyer Dual Pleasure / Dual Love are superior choices: they have pulsation, independently controllable vibration PLUS app control (can be long-distance if desired) PLUS are cheaper. Win-win. 😊 Previously I ranked the Pro 2 Vibes & Pro 3 Vibes: 9 out of 10 for pulsation intensity.
  • Lovehoney Womanizer Pro 40 (9.5 out of 10 intensity; $119.99; comparison w/ Womanizer Classic & Premium here): I’m not saying the relaunched Womanizer Pro 40 is a bad toy at all…I just think it’s outdated now, given the new Womanizer toys (like the Premium) and especially the We-Vibe Melt. Womanizer Pro40 does get as strong as Womanizer Classic, but has 6 speeds instead of 8. The pulsations also feel slightly less thuddy, and revived Pro 40 makes a rattling kinda noise on higher speeds. If you were sold on the protruding, round mouth of the original Womanizer Pro 40 and want a replacement, check out this toy.
  • Vedo Suki (11 /10 for intensity [I ran out of numbers😮]; $54.99; full review here): WHOA there, tiger. The Suki is ridiculously powerful, the strongest suction vibrator I’m aware of. This is a clit stimulator for the person who knows they like it strong. Real strong. The Vedo Suki is like the Lelo Sona 2 (almost SenSonic, vibro-pulsations) except without any even kinda low intensities, and it finishes stronger too. Like Sona, the Vedo Suki has a smaller mouth that’s not suitable for above-average-size clitorises. On the rare occasion I can stand Suki (it’s overwhelming for my clit!!!), I find the smaller hole creates a better seal for me personally: it’s more sucking. Suki’s uniquely cool feature is the finger-loop. It’s a raised bar on the back of the toy so you can slide it between your first and middle fingers. That should make it easier to maneuver during sex with a partner. And hey, the price is sweet, so I would recommend Suki if you’re seeking out the most clit-pummeling suction toy out there.
  • Womanizer Starlet 2 (6 /10 intensity; $79.99): The lowest-priced Womanizer. Starlet 2’s pulsations are still thuddy enough, it’s just a lighter-weight toy in terms of how intense the pulsation gets. Starlet 2’s four speeds are a big improvement from the original Starlet’s only 2 speeds, that’s true. Starlet 2 doesn’t quite have the muscle the other Womanizers do—and really, not every needs the high power of the Womanizer Premium’s top levels. So consider your preferences! Starlet 2 is quieter than other Womanizers, because it’s more gentle. Womanizer Starlet 2: 6 out of 10 for intensity
  • Satisfyer Luxury: Pret-a-Porter/Haute Couture (9/10 intensity); & High Fashion (7.5/10 intensity; all $129.99; full review here): IMO, Satisfyer Luxury clit pulsators were the best products Satisfyer had ever created—back in 2019. But they’re expensive, and people don’t buy them a lot because isn’t Satisfyer supposed to be cheaper? If you are a fan of gentleness, then High Fashion’s lower pulsation intensity will be a benefit. Prêt-à-Porter, in contrast, has the same top strength as Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation: a wide range (11 speeds) that starts and ends slightly lower than Womanizer Classic. Prêt-à-Porter/Haute Couture and High Fashion—though their pulsation strengths differ widely—both have 3 steady vibe speeds that start powerful and pretty buzzy. Plus 7 patterns, which I would ignore in a vibrating dildo, but that help me get off harder along with the clit pulsation. Overall, an OK attempt, but overshadowed by newer & cheaper Satisfyer releases.
  • Romp Shine & Free (6.5/10 intensity, my review linked because no one loves this product, don’t buy it): So the makers of Womanizer & We-Vibe products decided to make a budget brand of toys, “Romp,” and they’re really for the beginner. Or for anyone who doesn’t demand too much clitoral stimulation. The two Romp rechargeable models, Shine and Free, have 10 intensity levels. That sounds like a lot, but they’re all tightly packed, and you are not getting Womanizer-level strength at all. You’re also not getting Womanizer thud: Romp Shine and Free’s pulsations simply don’t have the same weight. I have a serious grievance against the battery-powered Romp, Romp Switch, which is even worse and made me break a nail trying to open its battery compartment. Also even less power than Shine and Free. These toys are genuinely bargain-bin compared to Womanizer products. The magnetic chargers are awful, really difficult to keep connected to the toy. The plastic feels cheaper, they only last 45 minutes per charge, and the buttons are harder to press as well. You really get what you pay for with Romp, unlike with most Satisfyer toys.

Tracy’s Dog Clitoral Suction Vibrator (😱)

This dual-stimulating “suction toy” sells like wildfire on Amazon, so I accepted one in order to have an educated opinion.6 I do not recommend buying sex toys from Amazon in any situation, and the Tracy’s Dog Clitoral Suction Vibrator is a prime (no pun intended) example of why that is:

The product manual lists the materials as “ABS + Silica Gel.” YIKES. Silica gel is a desiccant: like in those little packets that dry out everything around them and come with “DO NOT EAT” warnings. Silica gel is porous and not a stable sex toy material. And silicone gel is used in breast implants. Liquid-injection-molded platinum silicone is what I *hope* this product is coated with… But if the manufacturer is confused about what its products are actually made from, do you really want to put them in/against your genitals?

The Tracy’s Dog (brand name even more poorly chosen than “Womanizer”) toy has not-bad pulsation speed, though getting a good clit-fit is mission impossible with me and the large circular opening due to the insertable vibrator’s length. That internal arm bends, but isn’t flexible enough to let the clit nozzle rest on my clit when the vibes are on my G-spot. Surprise: the vibes are pretty rumbly. I liked them enough to try using the G-spot arm alone, but then the clit section was a hassle, torquing into my mons.

So this toy may be silicone, but no one outside the production facility really knows for sure. The Womanizer Duo is honestly the best alternative, a beautiful machine for dual stimulation—and $197.10 best pricing (w/ code FELICITY at checkout). I believe that within the next couple years, trustworthy dual stimulators with clit pulsation (instead of vibration) will become much more affordable. For example, I’m liking the Voodoo Beso Plus a lot more, and I trust it more.

On *Fit*: How Do You Use a Womanizer / Satisfyer

Since they are very different from traditional vibes, often people wonder: How do you use a Womanizer toy? How does a Lelo Sona work? Well, Womanizer, Satisfyer, and Sona are meant to fit around the clitoris. They create a sort of seal. Quick tips:

  • Lube is essential! Much more comfortable with.
  • Spread your labia first.7
  • Find the highest intensity that doesn’t feel like TOO MUCH.
  • Alternate going up, then back down if you feel overstimulated.

Keep in mind: You do not actually have to get a perfect seal/vacuum to use these toys, especially if your clit is sensitive. But it will increase intensity if you do manage a tighter fit. You also do not need to have an exposed clitoris; the pulses can still stimulate strongly through the clitoral hood. To answer a question I had when I got into air pressure technology testing: Womanizer toys do work effectively for buried clits too.

As mentioned, please use lube for more comfort, and to avoid irritation. With the air blowing outward, it’s so much better to be extra-super-duper wet when you start. A thick water-based lubricant will help.

Important tip: You may want to start slow!!! Do note that air pulsation clit stimulators are *A LOT*. Many clit-owners report coming hard and sometimes too fast, especially when they start using a Womanizer/Satisfyer. Sometimes these toys create multiple orgasms when the user thought that was something they couldn’t do. If you want a slower build-up or you’re one-and-done, then be gentle at first. Linger on the lower speeds. Go up in intensity…then back down for a little while. And repeat till you feel ready to come. Otherwise, air pulsators will practically extract the orgasms from you. Personally I’m most comfortable backing down a couple speeds right before I orgasm, because damn, this is strong stimulation!

We all have different stimulation preferences—so not everyone likes their clit treated the same way. Some like broader or more pinpoint stimulation; some like it to the right or left. (I like pressure underneath!) So getting the right fit may take some experimentation. Important questions before buying are: How wide do you want the mouth? How thick, and how hard? 

When Womanizer Pleasure Air stimulators first came out, their openings were all (almost totally)8 circular. Satisfyer toys still, and the revived Womanizer Pro 40, follow that trend. But in 2018, Womanizer began releasing toys with oval openings instead: noticeably longer than they are wide. The We-Vibe Melt followed suit. I believe this is a huge improvement because clitoral-size studies uniformly indicate that clitoral glandes (heads, the part that can be exposed) are longer than they are wide.9

Many users do enjoy circular openings too. (With their softer silicone, the Satisfyer Luxury toys’ circular openings are still pretty mouth-y.) For the most streamlined fit, however, an oval shape will suit more clits more precisely.

Size is also a potential issue: clits vary in size much like penises do. The best new Womanizer models—Classic, Premium, and Liberty—try resolving this by giving you two silicone heads. The size differences are small…but may help a bit. For full “mouth” size info, see the chart in the previous section. In brief, smallest is the Lelo Sonas (original, & then Sona 2 is just *barely* wider); and largest is Satisfyer Pro 3 Vibration, followed closely by Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Gen. & Satisfyer Luxury High Fashion.

NOTES

  1. Some vibrate, but most don’t. Exceptions—like most Satisfyers discussed below—are noted.
  2. But a wand’s strength is broader than these Womanizer “clit sucking” toys—which concentrate their efforts on the clitoral glans (head). Some people have a strong preference for broader stimulation, so it’s worth considering your personal preferences before buying.
  3. Except, you know, it all stays in one place instead of moving around and licking. 😝
  4. I’m ignoring the Satisfyer Love Triangle, as I keep pressing the wrong buttons on it and dislike the shape for that reason. It’s tough to grip.
  5. 90% cacao, baby. Gotta go intense with the chocolate too.
  6. I turned down money for a review, for the record. I only promote products & services that I would consider buying for myself, a partner, or a friend.
  7. Especially if they’re fleshy / your clit doesn’t stick out.
  8. They’re very circular ovals, to be precise, just barely longer than wide.
  9. Some sources: This 2018 study of 657 women gave mean clit width as 4.62 mm, vs. 6.89 mm length. This 1992 study of 200 women measured mean width as 3.4 (+/- 1.0 mm), vs. 5.1 (+/- 1.4) mm length (standard deviation in parens).

  1. Wow so much data!♥️ I’ve always known I’m not into full strength, but thanks to this lovely speed comparison chart now I know just how much, since I only use the first 3-4 speeds of my Satisfyer Pro 2 – thank you so much!

    Reply
  2. I love your detailed reviews! I too love data and comparison. I could use advice. My partner is usually on her back and I usually sit between her legs grab onto them and thrust for PiV. She’s unable to hold a toy because of a disability so I have to. We’ve tried wands but it’s hard to hold it on her clit while thrusting which means we have to stop and I need to try to get it in position again. We’ve tried Eva 2 and it doesn’t stay because it’s hard for it to get any purchase and it ends up causing pain when I try to get it more in place. We found these and she’s definitely interested but we’re wondering how well you think it will work given everything above? Really interested in the melt. Do you find that the head keeps your labia spread so it stays? Also can you recommend another toy that might help? Thanks!

    • Thanks so much for the compliment!

      I need to either hold Melt or reposition it frequently to keep the seal optimal while being penetrated. My labia don’t really need to be spread once my legs are fully open, but I can’t imagine Melt keeping them back really effectively if they were larger.

      Honestly, I think a We-Vibe Sync is probably your best bet. It’s definitely worth the price over We-Vibe Match because Sync has adjustable joints plus a separate motor in the clit section. And it’s specifically designed to be hands-free (but without the interesting wings like Eva—which I haven’t tried but myself but which kinda scares me).

    • Good question! It depends on whether you’d want stronger power at the end: because these feel less fluttery once the pulsations start going really fast. I do think that Womanizer Premium is very fluttery on the first 3 levels.

      Vs. High Fashion, which has that whispery quality going on through a few more speeds: it’s the most “muted” / gentle feeling of all these, with the lighter pulsations and the super-soft mouth.

      I like Liberty a lot, I just think it’s a “lite” version of Premium.

  3. Hi Felicity,
    Stumbled upon this post while wondering what others compared to my toys. I currently own Sona 2 and Satisfiyer 2 and would say they definitely feel VERY different! I loved all of your charts and information! Thanks for the information!

  4. I have the sona cruise (not the 2). I find that it is not strong enough to always bring me to orgasm (can get there sometimes but it takes a while). It does feel good tho. I’m not sure which other product to try. I’m thinking the melt or womanizer premium or maybe even the the cruise 2. Would love some help in my decision.

  5. Hello,
    Just dropped in to tell you that your comparison helped a lot. I got myself a lovely new Womanizer Premium – Raspberry, and I’m absolutely blown away by the toe-curling sweaty orgasms it brings me to!
    Thank you so much for your informative posts.

  6. My wife had a very sensitive clit and some vibrators work for her and others don’t.
    What vibrator do you advise for someone with a highly sensitive clit? She struggles to cum with anything but she does occasionally.

    • I’d say the Pillow Talk Racy! I love how rumbly it is, and it’s not overpowering. The fully adjustable speed control is nice in these Pillow Talk toys: You press the control button to turn on, and then you hold your finger down and release when you find the intensity you like. So you have access to the full power range, instead of a few pre-set intensities chosen by the manufacturer.

      Racy is a normal vibrator rather than an air pulsation toy, of course. It can be used either for clit or for G-spot play.
