How To Use A Clitoral Suction Vibrator

Ever heard of the vibrator that mimics oral sex? Clit sucker, suction vibrator, clitoral vacuum stimulator, whatever you call them - there’s a lot of public praise for them, but there’s also some confusion about how they actually work. Let’s unpack everything you need to know about clitoral suction vibrators with VUSH’s sexpert, Steph.

 

What Is A Clitoral Suction Vibrator?

A clitoral suction vibrator is a sex toy designed specifically for the clitoris. It uses vacuum suction or air pulse technology to send waves of sensation to the clit, without touching it directly. This differs from most other clitoral toys which vibrate right against the clit. Suction vibrators work by creating a seal around the clitoral glans, which is that external nub on the clit. (To learn more about clitoral anatomy, read our blog on Helen O’Connell's discovery of the clitoris.) To sum clit suckers up - think less direct vibration, more air sensation.

Empress 2 Clitoral Vacuum Vibrator is a best-seller at VUSH, so let’s find out why clitoral suckers are so popular.

 

Why Use A Clitoral Stimulator?

1. Clitoral Stimulation

While many focus on the vagina or internal genitalia during sex and self pleasure, the clitoris is where it’s at. The clit is the only body part that is designed purely for pleasure! It is more sensitive than the vagina, penis, or anus. External toys such as clitoral suction vibrators are perfect for stimulating that super pleasurable spot that can sometimes get neglected - the clitoris. Clitoral stimulation is often the fastest and easiest way to orgasm for a person with a vulva.

2. Unique Pulse Sensation

Many people rave about the brand new sensation that a clitoral vacuum provides compared to other vibrators. It feels like sensual waves of pleasure, rather than powerful vibrations. People often don’t know how to describe the feeling; they just know they like it and it’s unlike any other toy they’ve used in the past. You really can feel the difference.

3. Small & Subtle

Clitoral suction vibrators are subtle enough for a first time sex toy buyer to not be intimidated. It’s not always obvious that they’re even a sex toy! Some of them do look like vacuums, after all. Most of them are small enough to be incorporated into partnered sex.


 

How To Use A Clitoral Suction Vibrator

A suction vibrator can take some getting used to because it is so different from other vibrators. Take your time and don’t give up if it doesn’t feel right on the first try - trust us, it’s worth the wait. Here are our tips on getting started:

1. Get In The Mood

Sex starts in the brain. Clear your mind of any stressors and commit to your pleasure (we know, easier said than done). Focusing on your breath or noticing how your body feels can help you get there. Try sexual affirmations such as “I deserve to feel good” or “I dedicate time to my pleasure”. Clean your room, light a candle, and create a sensual space that makes you feel safe.

2. Add Some Foreplay

Foreplay is not just for partners and penetrative sex. Explore the various erogenous zones on your body by touching areas such as your neck, chest, hips, and thighs. When you’re ready to take things down to where the magic happens, start with your hands. It’s always good to touch the entire genitals yourself first before using a toy on the clitoris. Tease yourself!

3. Use Lube

Extend the foreplay a little longer by adding some lube to the entire genitalia, focusing on the clitoris. This step must not be missed! Lube is a self pleasure essential, even for external toys. For clitoral suction vibes in particular, lube takes things up a notch by making the idea of mimicking oral sex feel more realistic. Lubrication is guaranteed to level up your solo play!

4. Start Slow & Low

Start on the lowest setting and see how it feels before turning up the intensity or trying different modes. The beauty of a clitoral suction vibe is that it’s subtle and not direct. Because of the seal the toy creates on the clit, you don’t need to apply hard pressure. Allow some time to feel the sensations. Higher settings mean higher speed, but the faster the setting, the less suction-like the vibrations feel. Be patient and focus on relaxing your entire body to feel the good vibrations.

5. Adjust The Settings

As you become familiar with the toy and confident in the buttons, get a feel for the other settings. Many clitoral stimulators have multiple functions, often with (+) and (-) buttons to adjust the level or buttons to change the mode. VUSH's Clitoral Vacuum Vibrator has 40 personalised pleasure settings with steady suction vibrations and different pattern modes, so there’s bound to be something you love.

6. Explore Pressure, Positions & Parts

Along with the various settings on the toy, don’t forget to adjust your positioning too! Try lying on your back with your legs open or flipping over to lie on your stomach. You can even adjust the pressure of the toy based on how you’re holding it (remember to try it slightly further away from the clit to create that seal). You can even angle it on its side since some people find their clitoris more sensitive on one side compared to the other. If your toy is waterproof, use it in the bath or shower! And don’t forget, while clitoral suckers are designed for the clitoris, they can also be used on other body parts, such as the nipples.

7. Invite A Partner

Don’t gatekeep the fun - invite a partner! Small, handheld clitoral vibrators are great for partnered use because they don’t get in the way of penetrative sex. Clitoral vacuums can also be used during mutual masturbation. If your partner has a vulva too, why not get one each? Alternatively, the vibrator can be used on the clit while a partner pleasures the rest of the vulva, vagina, and anus with their hands, mouth, or genitals. Check out our guide to incorporating sex toys into partnered sex for more tips on partnered sex toy play. 

8. Relax And Enjoy

Once you get in the habit of using your new toy, we have no doubt you’ll start to feel very good very soon. If you do feel an orgasm coming on, breathe into it and let it happen. Alternatively, try edging - this is a technique where you take the intensity down a notch before orgasm to delay the finish, then bring it back up when you’re ready to orgasm. The various speeds and patterns on a vibrator make this process easier since you can go down a level or switch to a patterned mode to extend your solo play, then increase the pleasure settings when you’re ready to orgasm.

If you don’t feel like you’re going to finish, don’t stress - masturbation and sex doesn’t always have to end in orgasm! Pleasure and orgasm are not always synonymous and can exist separately from each other. If it feels good and gets you hot and heavy (or alternatively, rested and relaxed), then it’s doing its job.

9. Rinse And Repeat

The final step in the self pleasure process is to clean your toys so you can do it all again ASAP. Many suction vibrators are made from silicone, which should be rinsed with warm water and a gentle soap or sex toy cleaner. Be careful when rinsing the head of a vacuum vibrator - if the product is not fully waterproof then this could mess with the mechanics of the toy.
