The Best ‘Clit Suckers’ of 2024 [Out of 25 Air-Pulse Toys Tested]

All the clit suckers that were tested for this guide
Amie Dawson, with some of her air pulse vibrators

The clit suckers are orgasmic. They feel like a mouth sucking on your clitoris but without touching it. This intense yet gentle stimulation creates waves of pleasure that penetrate deep into the clitoral complex and lead to deep, body-shaking, sheet-grabbing, toe-curling, try-not-to-scream sensations. They are a blessing for people who are unable to reach clitoral orgasm easily from manual masturbation, oral sex, or penetrative intercourse alone. If you have a clit, you need one of these toys by your bed!

Buying air pulse vibrators can be intimidating even for seasoned users – high prices, no returns If the toy does not fit your anatomy and oceans of options. Buying based on reviews can be difficult because every person’s sexual response and criteria for what makes a good suction toy can be highly subjective.

I combined extensive personal testing with concrete performance metrics quantifying pleasure potential. Hard numbers on the motor force, sound levels, ergonomics, and size specs – I translate tech talk into comparable sensation takeaways. You don’t have to waste $100+ on a sucker that sucks when in this guide, you can find advice based on data that fits your personal needs.

The handheld air pulse vibrators tested for this research
Air pulse vibrators that feel more like sucking – to the left and more like blowing – to the right.

I’ve been using clit suckers for more than five years. After three months of research and hands-on testing of 25 of the most popular models side by side and analyzing data from experts, sex shop owners, and hundreds of customer reviews, I have concluded that the Womanizer Premium 2 is currently the best clit sucker that will satisfy most people’s needs.

My personal favorite is We-Vibe Melt. Its deeper rumbles penetrate me perfectly. I can feel the purr and the taps of its soft silicone mouth, and it brings me the best Os. Also, its flat, unintrusive shape makes it most manageable during sex.

However, based on my testing, I found that while all air-pulse vibrators promise touchless sucking, they have huge differences. Brands tune the intensity of air puffs to their definitions of “low” and “high.” And openings range from petite to wide.

For example, if the maximum air flow of Satisfyer Pro 3 is at 30 fpm(feet per minute), the minimum of the Lovehoney Rose is 180 fpm. Yes, the difference is THAT big. And if you do not pick the one that is right for your body, you are up for a big disappointment.

In this guide

This guide to air pulse vibrators is very detailed. I’ll quickly review each section so you can focus on the parts that interest you:

First, based on my testing, I’ll go into the two most important factors you should consider before buying a clit sucker – power and comfort. Brands tune intensities and shapes to their own ergonomics definitions, so one vibe’s bliss might numb another.

Next, based on extensive hands-on testing, I suggest the ideal air pulse vibes for different bodies and priorities.

The main section showcases my in-depth research and analysis comparing 25 of the most popular clit suction toys through quantified metrics like airflow force, pulse speed, and motor capacity. I then synthesize how all this science translates into subjective pleasure across different anatomies.

Further on, you’ll find my personal take on all models tested. I cover standout strengths and weaknesses for each.

Finally, the last section covers key basics: defining “air pulse” technology, proper use guidance, cleaning best practices, body-safe materials, and ideal lube pairings.

With layers to be savored, feel free to nibble into what interests you or indulge from start to finish. I aim to empower your play and intensify your adventures through science-backed insights.

What to Consider

What to Consider

Bodies blossom in all shapes, sizes, and colors – and so do clitorises. Even textbook dimensions are mere averages. The visible glans commonly measure 0.4 – 0.6 in (1-1.5 cm) long by 0.2 cm (0.5 in) wide. But substantial individual variation abounds. Get to know your clitoris and see if it will fit. I have a very detailed table with the air-pulse vibrator’s opening measurements later on. The nozzle orifice also affects the sensation A LOT. If it is shallower and narrower, with sharper edges and harder silicone, it translates to a much more intense sensation.

But anatomy is only one piece of the puzzle. Required intensity levels also swing wildly. Here I categorize models into two groups: clit suckers that most people will enjoy; I put those on a scale from 1 to 10, and my personal sweet spot is somewhere between 2 and 3. And then there are LELO Sona 2 Crusie and the Lovehoney Rose. These I recommend only for those who need the most power; think of Magic Wand at the max level to orgasm. I find them painful and abusive even at their lowest intensity.

I found that the pulse frequency significantly impacts the perceived feeling. Toys with motors that stay ‘rumblier’ at higher intensity feel much better.

Price is an important factor, too. Premium models do deliver better-balanced motors, luxe materials, and additional features. But value exists even among budget-friendly options. While pricier pulse vibes exceed on many fronts, more sensitivity-friendly sensations can come cost-effectively, too.

So, get to know your body’s unique contours and arousal needs. Great pleasure starts from a place of understanding because we are all unique. My guidance aims to help you discover your perfect match.

This guide will keep evolving as I continue testing new arrivals. But for now, allow my years of trial and error to help you choose based on your own tastes. Let’s find your perfect pulse vibrator match!

The Research

How I picked and tested

How I picked and tested

I identified several key features that were the most important to me as a tester, to other experts, and based on the reviews of sex toy owners.

  • A high-quality, easy-to-clean, nonporous body-safe material such as silicone or ABS plastic
  • Sufficiently powerful stimulation to induce an orgasm
  • Good intensity range and multiple or variable speeds
  • Decent battery life
  • A good amount of user reviews and recommendations

Versatility, durability, waterproofing, warranty coverage, aesthetics, and color options were a bonus. Dealbreakers included poor material quality, short battery life, fragility, lack of power, and uncomfortable or inconvenient designs.

After narrowing down the selection, I acquired the top contenders and evaluated them side-by-side over a 3-month testing period. As a 32-year-old woman very familiar with sex toys and an owner of clit suckers for over five years, I am well-qualified to assess these products.

My testing methodology included evaluating noise levels, battery performance, charging time, comfort, grip, and, of course, sexual pleasure potential. I used the toys solo on my clitoris as well as incorporated them into partnered sex. I tested those functions extensively for toys with app connectivity or other advanced features. I also validated manufacturer claims about waterproof ratings and assessed ease of cleaning/care.

In addition to my subjective assessments of pleasure and ergonomics, I measured key performance parameters objectively. This included quantifying air flow strength and pulsation wave frequency, applying pressure on the clitoris, and meticulously examining nozzle design differences.

Combining my own embodied experiences with detailed technical measurements provides consumers with a more complete picture of how these clitoral suction toys compare and, ultimately, which one(s) deliver the best experience. I aim for my reviews to inform both subjectively on sensation and objectively on engineering – helping you make the perfect purchase decision.

Why trust me

Why Trust Me

The author, Amie Dawson tests clit suckers' orgasmic potential

I own all the clit suckers featured in this guide, and I have tested them for months, with many photos and videos to prove it.

My fascination with intimate gadgetry spans more than a decade – evaluating vibrators for 15+ years and air pulse vibrators for over 5. Today, my collection tops 200+ toys tested: some I loved, some not, and some I would not use twice.

I combine academic insight with real-world experience gained through tireless, firsthand trials. My background includes a doctorate analyzing sexuality’s sociocultural impacts from Widener alongside a UPenn master’s focused on sexuality’s links to happiness.

So, I mix this knowledge with extensive toy testing wisdom: dissecting everything from technical specs to ergonomic engineering to emotional and relational ramifications. Beyond simple star ratings, I spotlight how specific models might empower different bodies, nurture self-love, and deepen connections.

It’s uniquely integrated analysis drawing from data AND personal experience – pleasure science meets practical bliss potential. I put each toy through experiments spanning metrics to meaning before pronouncing potential. So rely on thoroughly balanced takes and curated recommendations celebrated by peers and playmates alike!

Waterproofing test

Waterproofing Test

I evaluated the waterproof ratings of the various air pulse toys by submerging each turned-on model in a water bowl for 10 minutes. Besides the Tenera and Flowliper, which are only splashproof, all the clit suckers claim full IPX7 waterproofing, meaning they can be used safely in wet conditions like the shower(but it is not advised because washes the lube away) without performance or durability issues.

This waterproof design also makes the toys much easier to clean thoroughly. I observed no functionality problems after testing. All models continued operating normally after being submerged. The only minor issue occurred with the Satisfyer Pro 3+ – the glued seal around its mouth peeled slightly on one side after being in the water.

So, the testing validated the IPX7 ratings, although I recommend avoiding full underwater use. The waterproof construction proved reliable for cleaning while keeping the electronics protected. Care about fixed nozzles without removable silicone heads to prevent seal deterioration over time.

Evaluating the Nozzle(Mouth) Impact of Air Pulse Sensations

Evaluating the Nozzle(Mouth) Impact on Air Pulse Sensations

A clit sucker’s nozzle is foundational for converting motor power into perceived pleasure. Its area controls sensation concentration – a broader opening spreads stimuli for immersive envelopment, while a narrower focally intensifies each pinpointed pulse. Edge sharpness further defines this intensity transition from the air onto the skin – abruptly severing flow for precision or smoothing its landing for gentle diffusion. And outlet depth mollifies kinetics through distance, allowing channel walls to absorb vibrations and weaken each burst of air slightly before it lands.

So if equal motors churn out smooth, strong airwaves, nozzles ultimately sharpen pleasurable effects – making identical power feel razor-sharp or feather-light. With anatomies proving so unique, brands utilize nozzle engineering magic, seeking ideal pairings. So at the surface level, specification scans miss their deepest impacts: the nozzles make or break the quality of sucking, tweaking the texture of touchless tongues, sculpting whether air kisses tickle or launch users into orbit.

Opening Area and Sensation

The nozzle area can significantly affect the air pulse sensation, even with the same pressure applied. Here is how it impacts feelings:

  • A larger nozzle area will spread the air pressure over more skin, making the pulses feel more enveloping/immersive. It distributes the force.
  • A smaller nozzle area will instead focus and concentrate the pressure into a precise pinpoint. This can create a more targeted, sharper, yet less immersive sensation.
  • A larger area also allows more overall volume/flow (CFM) to be transmitted. More skin covered = more stimulation.
  • But a smaller area may feel more intense given the same total force is concentrated (pressure = force/area).

The nozzle opening area on clitoral air pulse toys like the Womanizer Premium 2 and Satisfyer Pro directly affects the sensation. I compiled nozzle size specs in cm2 across models to compare design differences.

With the largest nozzle opening measuring 2.19cm2, the LELO Sila Cruise generates the most surrounding, immersive pleasure pulses by broadly dispersing air pressure across more nerves. Its wider coverage creates an indulgent sensation.

At the other end, the LELO Sona 2 Cruise’s tiny 0.95cm2 nozzle intensely concentrates every air burst into an extreme, concentrated pinpoint. This channels the most raw intensity per pulse despite lower total flow.

Balancing intensity with immersion, mid-sized stimulators like the We-Vibe Melt (1.73cm2) offer a versatile middle ground. Their moderately wide nozzles provide a little of both worlds.

So, ultimately, choose the LELO Sila Cruise if you crave enveloping, hedonistic pulses. Opt for the LELO Sona 2 Cruise to maximize pinpoint precision. Or select the We-Vibe Melt for the best overall mixture of concentration and dispersal.

The Edges Effect on Perceived Feeling

The design of the nozzle walls and edges that contact the skin can significantly impact the sensation of air pulse vibrators, even with the same motor capacity. There are some solid mechanics and physiology behind those perceptual differences.

A few key factors the nozzle walls affect:

  • Airflow focusing
  • Transition edge sensation
  • Surface friction

Specifically:

  • Thinner walls = air concentrates with less diffusion = stronger tactile intensity
  • Sharper edges = more pinpoint transition sensation from air → skin contact
  • More surface area = increased skin drag and pull sensation

So, a model like the ultrathin We-Vibe Melt concentrates air bursts for intensity, with rounded edges smoothing the transition.

Meanwhile, the more aggressive LELO Sona 2 has thicker walls, diffusing air, and sharp transition edges, causing sharper tactile pinpoints.

And the wider surface of LELO Sila introduces more skin contact and friction sensation around pulses.

Nozzle Depth and the Air Waves Power

The depth spanning a pulsator’s nozzle outlet to the internal motor also dramatically affects sensation. I compiled nozzle depth measurements in cm across models for comparison. Differences in pulse intensity become clear:

With the longest 3.5cm span, the Satisfyer Pro 3+ generates the most gradual, pillowy pulses as airflow weakens, traveling the distance. This subtle diffusion lends a gentler feel.

Conversely, the We-Vibe Melt at just 1.4cm deep creates the crispest, hardest-hitting pulses. Minimal pathway preserves strength and instantaneity for extremely responsive bursts.

Moderately deep options like the Womanizer Premium 2 (1.8cm) and Womanizer Liberty (2cm) offer a middle ground. Pulses maintain oomph yet avoid an overly sharp bite from unchecked intensity that could irritate sensitive clits.

So ultimately, select the Satisfyer Curvy 3+ if seeking softened, indulgent simulation. Pick the We-Vibe Melt to maximize uncompromising immediacy. Or get the Womanizer Premium 2 for sufficiently robust yet forgiving stimulation balanced via depth. Let air pulse nozzle dimensions guide your ideal sensation!

Nozzle Silicone Softness

The nozzle tip directly contacting the body in air pulse vibrators affects overall comfort. Using a durometer across various models, I measured silicone hardness on the Shore A scale.

Softer silicone better conforms to delicate anatomy. The Satisfyer Pro 3+ plush 19A nozzle gently cushions pulsations for comfortable extended wear. The supple We-Vibe Melt also rated a 22A.

Conversely, some firmer designs risk chafing over time, like the Satisfyer Penguin (50A) and Liberty (43A). Their harder nozzles concentrate rigid pressure points insensitive to contours.

Many models like the LELO Sila and Satisfyer Curvy 3+ strike a middle ground around 30A hardness. Moderately moldable, these withstand occasional intensity spikes without turning oppressive. Proper warming is still recommended.

Ideally, choose ultra-soft <30A nozzle silicones for unrelenting comfort. But select mid-range ~40A if you enjoy edging intensity limits. Just avoid hardened >45A tips to dodge discomfort over longer sessions.

Understanding Airflow Metrics

Understanding Airflow Metrics in Air Pulse Toys

Air pulse toys create unique clitoral sensations through focused air bursts. Key motor measurements help quantify power and design performance differences translating to perceived intensity.

CFM (cubic feet per minute) indicates the total airflow volume circulated. Higher CFM enables wider pulsation spread over more surface area. This can lend a deeper, immersive vibration feeling.

Pressure (PSI) measures each pulse’s compressive force – its subjective “punch” upon impact. So, while CFM conveys overall stimulation potential, PSI better represents tactile intensity.

Optimally, high throughput CFM and focused PSI combine for the most intense experience – forceful yet expansive hammering.

The Lovehoney Rose outputs the greatest 0.46 CFM airflow volume for indulgent, far-reaching pulses. And its extreme 19.57 PSI pressure intensity maximizes each pulse’s hammering sensation.

But nozzle design crucially filters raw motor power into perceived intensity, too. Despite nearly identical motors, the wide-mouth LELO Sila disperses pulses for gentle envelopment, while the LELO Sona 2’s narrow canal ravages nerves with a biting sharpness.

Offering a versatile balance, the Womanizer Premium 2 utilizes moderate 0.084 CFM airflow and 1.05 PSI pressure to deliver both immersive breadth and sufficient pinpoint intensity. This is the clit sucker most people would enjoy.

The Pulse Speed Impact on the Sensation

The Pulse Speed Impact on the Sensations

The frequency or how many pulses the clit sucker creates per second defines if it is ‘rumbly’ or ‘buzzy.’

Based on my testing, I have concluded that a higher pulse rate (frequency):

  • Creates a more constant “fluttering” stimulation.
  • Less time between pulses allows sensations to compound.
  • It can make vibrations feel more intense.
  • High frequencies tend to feel more ticklish.
  • It also contributes to the perception of suction feeling.

But I also found that lower vibration frequencies transmit better sensations. Here are the likely reasons why:

More time for skin to respond – Higher frequencies transmit pulses so fast that there’s less time for skin receptors to fire and nerve signals to process between each pulse. Lower frequencies allow more response.

Avoid nerve adaptation – Skin nerves can adapt to very high-frequency stimulation, causing a relative decrease in perceived intensity over time as nerves accommodate. Lower frequencies may avoid this effect.

  • Greater displacement – Slower pulsing allows time for longer motion and displacement per pulse. This activates more skin areas to feel each vibration.
  • Resonance frequencies – The skin and body tissues have innate resonant frequencies they best respond to, often in the range of 10-100 Hz. A lower vibration tempo may hit the resonant sweet spot.

I used an audio frequency counter to compile vibration tempo measurements in Hz across various intensity levels to compare models.

We-Vibe Melts at lower to mid-range levels have lower <100Hz pulses that penetrate deeper as skin fully responds. However, at its highest levels, it gets to 1000 Hz (which translates to 1000 pulses per second), which yields an intense constant fluttering. But nerve adaptation dulls sensation over time.

Mid-range toys like the LELO Sila strike an optimal balance around 200-400Hz. This steady tempo avoids extreme sensory fatigue while compounding pulses for perceivable rhythm.

The Womanizer Premium 2 has the most balanced motor and the best pulsations. It maintains a comfortable, moderate 66-125Hz across all intensities. These slower yet consistent pulses allow fuller nerve transmission and tissue displacement without overwhelming.

Beware irregular designs, which start slower yet suddenly spike intensity by accelerating pulses exponentially. These unpredictable shifts disrupt comfortable stimulation flow.

Avoid extremes on both ends – numbingly fast yet jarringly intermittent for sustainable, pleasurable air pulse play. Instead, pick moderate, steady frequencies around 100-300Hz for comfortable fluttering on the edge of overwhelming.

Testing the Rechargeable Batteries

Testing the Rechargeable Batteries

I’ve had too many rechargeable sex toys fizzle out mid-play after draining their batteries prematurely. Such a tease kill when you’re so close! Also, the pulsations tend to get weaker when the battery drains. A bigger, more powerful battery means you will have the same strong airwaves for longer. So I rigorously tested the runtimes of the clit suckers I own to verify their stamina claims.

The Womanizer Premium 2 has an incredible four hours of non-stop suction advertised. My extended tests surpassed even my personal endurance limits before its impressive motor finally gave out. Now that’s commitment! And the SmartSilence feature helps preserve the battery even more because the toy only works when in contact with the skin.

The Tracy’s Dog Flowliper also has a great battery life and lasts up to 5 hours, but this is no surprise given its extra weak motor.

The LELOs clit suckers, Lovense Tenera and Womanizer Liberty, also have a decent battery life. On my tests, they lasted between 1.5 – 2 hours per charge.

The Satisfyer vibrators are on the lower end; they take a lot of time to charge and then have less than 60 minutes of playtime, but I guess that was expected for more budget options.

So if you too like edging and fluttering about in hour-plus sucking sessions, make sure to pick enduring power players like the Premium 2. Their unmatched battery life guarantees your playtime focus stays on fun, not battery bars!

Usability and Handling

Evaluating the Usability and Handling

I rated grip comfort and control interface ease of use from 1-5 on the clit suckers after extensive hands-on testing.

clit suckers evaluated and ranked based on their grip comfort
The most comfortable from left to right on the top row.

Earning top marks in grip security and intelligently designed controls, the We-Vibe Melt’s gentle contours and intuitively placed buttons make handling effortless even mid-session. It also has an app for granular control of the intensity. The Womanizer Premium 2 followed closely as a high-scoring crowd-pleaser with easy-to-use and understand buttons.

Surprisingly, luxury brands like LELO stumbled a bit on ergonomics – the Sila Cruise’s awkward curved grip forces fingers to overextend while searching out confusingly similar button shapes by feel.

Practically designed budget models like the Satisfyer Curvy 3+ balance sensible shaping and clear, bold button contrasts for accessible play regardless of experience level. However, the Satisfyer Pro 3+ and Satisfyer Penguin buttons are very hard to see. Most Satisfyer models have vibration mode, which can make the navigation a bit confusing.

While sensation quality proves paramount, we shouldn’t underestimate simple, thoughtful design’s role in keeping the fun flowing. A toy that handles as beautifully as it stimulates makes for happier overall experiences!

Measuring the Intensity Range

Measuring the Intensity Range

The clit sucker’s intensity range is one of the most important factors that dramatically impact satisfaction potential across anatomies.

I compiled three visualizations of motor performance, airflow force, and perceived intensity differences across models – displaying the drastic variation.

Chart 1 compares absolute airflow throughput. The Rose and LELO motors operate on another level entirely compared to the majority of the clit suckers tested.

Based on my testing, Womanizer Premium 2 has the best intensity range that fits most people’s sweet spot. It has a low start level and reaches maximum power, stronger than all the pulsators for mid-sensitive people. It also has 14 speed levels, so the build is very gradual.

So, ensure your selection aligns with your body’s needs – narrow and nuanced or wide-spanning and flexible. With charts clarifying capabilities, match the proper intensity range for a personalized pulsating paradise!

Here is a table with the intensity ranges of the tested clit suckers with their minimum and maximum values in the three important categories that make overall intensity: airflow, pressure and pulse frequency. The last column is all three multiplied, so you can have an idea of the power range of each toy.

Noise Levels

Noise Levels

Discretion is important for clit sucker owners living with roommates or thin walls. Using a sound meter, I quantified noise levels at multiple intervals to compare models:

I measured 1 foot away, simulating use while holding the device. Then, levels at 3 feet distance, and finally, intensity with a closed door to determine neighbors’ likely audibility. I recorded across all intensities, too, since higher modes run louder for all brands.

My rating system spanned:

  • <40 dB: Ideal – Completely hushed
  • 40-45: Great – Body hides most sound
  • 45-50: Noticeable – Ambient noise advised
  • 50-55: Noisy – Music required
  • 60-65+: Disruptive – Heard everywhere

Most could pass as a phone vibration or running sink under covers at closer range. But louder clitsuckers risk embarrassing exposure to paper-thin walls, especially when cranked. So ensure your pulsator purrs at volumes aligned with your living situation – from practically silent to background noise masking necessities. And as intensities fuel evocative crescendos, plan what acoustic adaptations positions or props may necessitate beforehand!

As you can see from the table below, all the clit suckers tend to get loud at the higher levels. Still, the Womanizers Premium 2 and Next, We-Vibe Melt, and Satisfyers Curvy 3+ and Triangle are relatively the quietest. These models are quiet enough to be used behind closed doors at the low and mid-intensity levels. It would be a good idea to play light ambient music or a TV in the background if you plan to use them on the highest levels.

Evaluating the Orgasmic Potential

The most orgasmic clit suckers, from left to right, top row first.

Quantifying something as personal as the clit sucker’s orgasmic potential proves tricky, but useful patterns emerge through extensive side-by-side testing. I assigned pleasure ratings on a 1-5 scale indicating climax likelihood and quality across models spanning the sensitivity spectrum:

  • 5 – Ecstatic eruption without oversensitivity leaves me craving endless rounds
  • 4 – Lovely finish, still allowing rapid rebound for more
  • 3 – Mediocre, likely requiring overstimulation; some post-orgasm numbness
  • 2 – Subpar sensation, unable to push me over the edge
  • 1 – Virtually no chance for climax, no matter the effort

Unsurprisingly, the balanced motors and well-engineered mouths of air pulse vibrators like the Womanizer’s Premium 2 and Next and the We-Vibe Melt’s deeper rumbles suited my anatomy best. Most mid-range options finished the job sufficiently but left me numb thereafter or drove me to more superficial Os. And highest intensity models like the Rose primarily overstimulated, while the wispiest teases from the Pro 3+ fluttered faintly to frustration.

While personal tastes dictate, through comparative testing, I matched models to potential based on my sample size of one – illuminating suitable sensation sweet spots across dozens of clit suction toys.

Detailed Reviews

My Top Pick: Womanizer Premium 2

The best clit sucker overall – superb motor, top-quality pulses, and remarkable orgasms

The Womanizer Premium 2 is the latest and greatest model from Womanizer, the pioneers of pleasure air technology. After trying out this luxurious toy, I can confidently say it delivers the most intense and satisfying clitoral stimulation of any air-pulse vibrator on the market.

Design

The Premium 2 features a sleek, ergonomic shape that’s easy to grip and hold against your body. The soft silicone exterior and gold accents give it an ultra-luxurious look and feel. It’s fully waterproof and rechargeable via a magnetic USB charging cord that clips easily into place.

Air-Pulse Technology

Womanizer’s patented Pleasure Air technology is what sets this toy apart. It uses pulses of air to surround and stimulate the clitoris without direct contact, which feels like a sucking/tapping sensation. It’s difficult to describe, but the light, fluttering feelings it produces are out-of-this-world!

Powerful Stimulation

With 14 intensity levels, the Premium 2 delivers vibration that ranges from feather-light to meltingly powerful. Even in the highest setting, the sensations remain focused and pleasurable rather than numbing. I always crave more intensity with this toy; it pushes me to new heights every time.

Smart Silence

The Smart Silence feature ensures that the toy’s motor operates only when the stimulation nozzle is in contact with your body. This keeps things quiet when not in use and helps conserve battery life. It’s a useful feature that makes using the Premium 2 relaxing and discreet.

Accessories

The Premium 2 comes with two silicone nozzle sizes so you can customize the stimulation area for your anatomy. It also includes a storage bag, charger, and an extra safety seal – everything you need to enjoy this luxurious toy for years to come.

Orgasmic Potential

Without a doubt, the Premium 2 gives me the fastest, most intense orgasms out of any sex toy I’ve tried. The focused air pulses bring me to climax in an average of 30 seconds, and I can quickly go for multiple back-to-back Os. It’s an unbeatably satisfying experience that keeps me coming back for more!

For unmatched clitoral stimulation and orgasmic potential, the Womanizer Premium 2 is the best air-pulse vibrator money can buy. With its whisper-quiet operation and luxury aesthetics, this toy is a must-have for anyone serious about their pleasure.

Also great: We-Vibe Melt Review

My favorite air pulse vibrator – the perfect mouth and powerful rumbly sonic waves

The We-Vibe Melt is hands-down my favorite air pulse / clit “suction” toy. As a category, these toys provide touchless clitoral stimulation using pulses of air, mimicking a sucking sensation. While the Womanizer Premium 2 is arguably the “best” based on features and power, I still prefer using my Melt on a regular basis.

Design and Features

The Melt has an oval-shaped mouth that forms a tighter seal around my clitoris compared to round designs. This allows it to maintain suction more easily during use. The opening is also very soft and flexible, adding to comfort.

The slim, streamlined body design means the Melt doesn’t get in the way during partner play. My partner and I have successfully used it during intercourse thanks to its unintrusive shape.

It offers 12 levels of steady air pulse intensity. While fewer than the Premium 2’s 14 levels, 12 is still a broad range for finding your perfect setting.

Experience and Orgasm Potential

The Melt’s pulsations are deeper and “thuddier” than other airwave toys. The sensations penetrate me on a profoundly pleasurable level. I can have multiple, intensely satisfying orgasms in mere minutes with this toy.

The softness of the silicone mouth prevents overstimulation, so I’m able to keep going for additional mind-blowing climaxes. It doesn’t cause discomfort or numbness in the highest settings like some toys do.

The lowest setting might feel too intense for complete beginners and the most sensitive users of these types of toys. But it’s a perfect starter level for someone with some prior experience.

Ease of Use and Care

The Melt couldn’t be easier to operate with just two simple buttons. I just hit plus or minus to adjust the air puffs intensity up or down. And thanks to the waterproof silicone design, cleaning is a cinch with some soap and warm water.

The only small downsides are the finicky magnetic charger, which can detach too easily, and it’s not the quietest toy when ramped up high.

Still, the amazing orgasms I experience with the We-Vibe Melt cement its place as my go-to pressure wave stimulator and a top contender for best clit suction toy. While it doesn’t quite beat the Premium 2 in all aspects, it remains my personal favorite air pulse vibrator for solo and partner play.

For the Power Seekers: LELO Sona 2 Cruise

Mind-blowing power at a cost – the strongest sonic pulses on an air stimulator

The LELO Sona 2 Cruise is undoubtedly the most powerful clitoral suction toy I’ve ever tried. Its ultra-strong sonic pulses deliver sensations so intense they cross the border on overwhelming. This is not a toy for the faint of heart.

Narrow Mouth, Maximum Focus

Unlike the wider mouths of the Womanizer Premium 2 or We-Vibe Melt, the Sona 2 Cruise has a narrow opening. This creates an almost painful concentration of sonic waves directly on the tip of the clitoris. For those who crave pinpoint stimulation, this design is incredible. But it may prove uncomfortable or even painful for those with a mid-sensitive clitoris.

Thick Body, Intense Transmission

The Sona 2 Cruise has thicker silicone walls and a mouth with a very sharp edge compared to similar toys. This allows the air pulses to transmit deeply into the clitoral structure with minimal diffusion. The waves slam the clitoris with their full brute force. Each rapid pulse feels like a sharp slap. But again, this intense sensation leans toward overpowering for most.

Precise Pleasure or Sensory Overload

I could only handle the Sona 2 Cruise’s lowest settings that barely touched my skin before the stimulation became overwhelming. The upper levels literally had my toes curling and thighs clenching from the frenetic waves. This toy delivers precision pleasure and precision pain in equal measure.

It is also on the pricier side. The Lovehoney Rose has a stronger motor, and its pulses feel a bit weaker than the Sona 2 because of its softer and smoother nozzle, but it is about five times cheaper. If you want an ultra-powerful sensation but you are on a budget, the Rose is a good, affordable option.

While the intensity proved too much for me to enjoy fully, power fiends will bask in the Sona 2 Cruise’s extreme stimulation. Just brace yourself for a wild, almost uncomfortable ride toward orgasm. For better or worse, no suction toy matches this one’s mind-blowing strength. Handle with care and lube!

A Budget Option: Satisfyer Curvy 3+

The affordable surprise – thoughtful design with Bluetooth connectivity and an app

The Satisfyer Curvy 3+ proves you don’t need to spend a fortune on an air pulse toy to experience mind-blowing orgasms. At under $70, it delivers delightful clitoral stimulation that outperforms many luxury brands. While it doesn’t match the raw intensity of the Womanizer Premium 2 or We-Vibe Melt, the Curvy 3+ is gentler on sensitive clits.

Perfectly Petite Nozzle

Unlike the wider mouths of pricier models, the Curvy 3+ has a slim oval opening that concentrates steady airwaves on my clit’s sweet spot. The flexible silicone rim creates a tighter seal for pleasant suction sensations. While the Premium 2 and Melt provide broader stimulation, the Curvy 3+’s precision targeting does the trick without overstimulation.

Sufficient Speed Range

With 11 air pulse intensities, the Curvy 3+ caters to different arousal needs. The lower settings offer gentle puffs that slowly awaken my clit’s sensitivity. As I get more turned on, I can increase to faster taps that quickly push me to climax. However, the highest speeds don’t match the raw power of luxury brands. For my preference, that’s a good thing!

It Also Vibrates

The Curvy 3+ isn’t just a one-trick pony either. Its vibration motor delivers robust, buzzy vibrations on par with a bullet toy. Using it simultaneously with air pulses creates unique blended sensations for added fun.

While the Satisfyer Curvy 3+ isn’t the most advanced or feature-packed air pulse toy, it outperforms its modest price tag. The slim nozzle provides precise stimulation without overwhelming intensity. So if you’re new to air pulsation or want gentle clit play on a budget, the Curvy 3+ is a bargain-priced ticket to pleasure.

Other Good Clit Suckers

While the following clitoral suction toys didn’t make my top recommendations list, they each have merits that may appeal depending on your priorities and preferences:

womanizer liberty clit sucker
Womanizer Liberty

Womanizer Liberty – This compact, lightweight, travel-friendly model provides a solid intensity range and quality orgasms. With just two buttons controlling six intensities, it’s simple to operate. The lower levels feel pleasantly rumbly before getting buzzier at higher speeds—battery life clocks in at two hours, with convenient magnetic charging. At $90, it’s a good mid-range mobile option.

satisfyer triangle air pulse vibrator
Satisfyer Triangle

Satisfyer Triangle – Another travel-sized choice, the Triangle sports a protective nozzle cover and a sleek, gadget-like design. It is less comfortable to hold than the Liberty and not as strong on the orgasm delivery, but it is cheaper. Fully submergible with 11 suction levels and ten vibes. The downside is the weak battery, lasting under an hour.

LELO Sila Cruise pressure wave stimulator
LELO Sila Cruise

LELO Sila Cruise – This luxury model is expensive at $190 but fits my anatomy well. A wide mouth with a soft edge makes air pulses gentle yet deep. Comfortable, long-lasting, but awkward controls and no steady speeds, only patterns. Premium 2 and Melt provide better value.

Womanizer Starlet 3 clit sucking vibrator
Womanizer Starlet 3

Womanizer Starlet 3 – Lightweight with simple controls and strong pulses that bring pleasant orgasms. $80 makes it an affordable choice, though the narrow intensity range starts mid-level, so it’s not for the super sensitive. Plus a weak 30-minute battery life.

Satisfyer Penguin clit suction toy
Satisfyer Penguin

Satisfyer Penguin – Another budget-friendly option, but its awkward, hard-to-see buttons and hard mouth make the user experience lackluster. Gentler waves spread over 11 intensities work for some. I’d recommend the superior Curvy 3+ at this price point.

So, while not flawless, these air pulse toys have attributes that may suit some users. But my top recommendations still deliver the best combination of value, power, and ease of use.

The Competition

I also tested several other air pulse toys but could not recommend them due to issues achieving climax, uncomfortable designs, or lack of power:

Tracy’s Dog Flowliper – This model delivers extremely weak pulsations, more of a teasing buzz. While extended use of max might eventually lead to orgasm, it would require great effort. It has a bulkier shape with confusing controls but does come with three different nozzles.

Satisfyer Curvy 2+ – The rounded mouth design makes it difficult to create an airtight clitoral seal for me. Already weak motor leads to barely felt flutter sensations rather than pulsations. Its glued mouth risks damage over time. With only 11 low intensities and 1-hour battery life, the similar-priced Curvy 3+ easily outperforms it.

Lovehoney Rose – Surprisingly powerful motor and comfortable, rounded design. Straightforward controls and a decent 65-minute battery make it a great affordable option at $35. However, the soft mouth and rounded edges reduce the intensity of the sensation compared to Lelo Sona 2. It’s slightly awkward to hold.

Lovense Tenera – A disappointing entry from the typically reliable brand Lovense. The narrow intensity range starts too high yet maxes out lower than competing models. It has stable Bluetooth connectivity and a 2-hour battery with the full-featured Lovense app. It’s still too uncomfortable and overwhelming for my preferences. It might be an option for insensitive users seeking an app and long-distance play.

Satisfyer Pro 3+ – The worst clitoral sucker tested. Weak motor combined with a deep, excessively soft mouth barely transmits any sensation. Peeling mouth glue indicates potential durability issues. It is outclassed by the superior Curvy 3+ for a similarly low price.

Key Basics

What is a clit sucker?

What is a clit sucker?

Clitoral suction vibrators represent an exciting innovation in pleasure technology. These smartly designed toys combine air pulsation and sonic waves to envelop the clitoris and stimulate it in entirely new ways. Rather than providing intense direct vibration like traditional toys, clit suckers send pleasurable pulsations throughout the internal and external clitoral structure without ever making direct contact. This unique sensation explains why so many users rave about the leg-shaking, scream-inducing orgasms these toys can produce.

The mechanism behind the magic is straightforward yet clever. A soft silicone nozzle gently seals over the clitoral glans, using mild suction to draw increased blood flow for heightened sensitivity. However, suction alone is not the star of the show. The real secret lies in the sonic pulse waves that reverberate deep into the internal clitoral tissue hidden under the public bone. Most are unaware the clitoris extends far back internally, packed with nerve-dense erectile tissue. Clit suckers provide a kind of deep-tissue massage to these hidden zones of pleasure potential.

Avoiding direct clitoral contact prevents the numbness that can follow a vibrator-induced orgasm, enabling multiple climaxes as the toy coaxes wave after wave of ecstatic release from these submerged sensitive areas.

Users can enjoy clitoral suction toys solo or during partner play by combining them with penetration, G-spot stimulation, or even anal.  For more tips on use, click here.

These ingenious toys typically have two components. The removable silicone nozzle where the magic happens is usually curved to fit against the vulva ergonomically. And a handle with control buttons to adjust intensity levels or toggle through pulsation patterns to customize your bliss.

What makes a clit sucker 'body safe'?

What makes a clit sucker “body safe”?

Body-safe clit suction toys are:

Nonporous: Nonporous materials like silicone prevent bacteria, viruses, or fungi from getting trapped in pores after cleaning. This makes them more hygienic.

Nontoxic: High-quality sex toys do not contain chemicals that can leach out and be absorbed by mucous membranes. This prevents irritation and keeps users safe.

The best body-safe materials for clit suckers are 100% medical-grade silicone and ABS plastic. Avoid toys labeled “silicone blends” as they may contain other less safe materials.

Unfortunately, sex toys are not well-regulated when it comes to material safety and chemical use. Limited research has found hazardous substances in some toys. While occasional use may be safe, frequent or prolonged use on delicate mucous membranes could cause issues.

That’s why I only recommend nonporous, body-safe clit suckers made from high-quality materials. This keeps users healthy while still delivering a mind-blowing sensation. Safety first!

Cleaning best practices

Cleaning best practices

All the clit suckers recommended here are IPX7 waterproof(except Lovense Tenera and Tracy’s Dog Flowliper, which are only splashproof at IPX6), meaning they can be fully submerged and are easy to clean. You can wash silicone and ABS plastic models with warm water and soap.

Those with removable nozzles are most convenient to clean thoroughly. You can detach the nozzle and wash it separately, then rinse all remaining water out and allow it to fully air dry before reattaching.

Use a cotton swab to gently remove any residue without puncturing the delicate internal membrane. Make sure to angle the toy nozzle down and pump it a few times to drain any trapped water afterward.

Proper cleaning keeps your toys hygienic and well-maintained for consistent enjoyment. Just take care of non-removable nozzle openings and ensure everything is completely dry before the next use or storage. Follow these tips, and your clit suckers will give you countless orgasms in perfect sanitary conditions!

Ideal lube pairings

Ideal lube pairings

As all the clit suckers recommended here have silicone nozzles, it’s crucial to use only water-based lubricants with them. Other lubricant types can damage the silicone material over time, deteriorating the toy.

I also advise against using these toys while showering or in water. The water will wash away natural and applied lubricants needed to ensure smooth sensation on such a sensitive area. Without sufficient glide, even gentle suction can become uncomfortably rough. Friction from powerful air pulsations against an unlubricated clitoris risks pain or even injury.

So keep your fun comfortable and safe – stick to water-based lube and avoid full water submersion during play. This preserves both you and your toys while still delivering mind-melting enjoyment! Proper use lets you focus purely on pleasure.

Final results: which clit sucker is your perfect match?

In closing, if an unmatched clitoral experience is the end goal, air pulsation toys create sensations beyond normal vibrators’ capabilities. Seeking the best model for your anatomy and priorities is key, however, since all clits differ. I hope mapping top options across intensity levels, price points, and styles helps guide your ideal pick.

For those able to invest, the engineering masterpiece Womanizer Premium 2 takes top honors as the best clit sucker overall. Unrivaled precision across all speeds optimizes orgasmic potential and comfortable adjustability from feathery to intensely sucking taps.

My personal favorite air pulse vibrator – We-Vibe Melt, creates indescribable sensations its uniquely contoured mouth shape enhances. But the high-intensity LELO Sona 2 Cruise precisely suits power-chasers wanting uncompromising intensity. The gentle Womanizer Next is a perfect fit for the more sensitive clits, and the affordable Satifsyer Curvy 3+ makes quality sucking accessible to more budgets.

Remember, no “best” toy exists – just the ideal model that suits your priorities. But choosing among top air pulsators mapping distinct styles and intensities guarantees next-level experiences that can forever redefine your pleasure potential.
