The Best Suction Vibrators, According To A Sex Therapist

Suction sex toys defy everything you've come to expect from a vibrator. For starters, powerful thrusts and pulses are replaced with targeted waves of suction-y pleasure. Another plus: They are designed to stimulate the clitoris, which is key in helping you achieve the big O.
"Where traditional vibrators use the power of vibration to tantalize the clit, a suction vibrator uses a different technology to evoke the feeling of being sucked," Dr. Kate Balestrieri, CST, CSAT-S, PACT-II, EMDR, TSY, a licensed psychologist and certified sex therapist tells Refinery29.
"Roughly 37% of women report not having an orgasm from unassisted — no clitoral stimulation — vaginal penetration alone," explains Dr. Balestrieri. "When the clitoris is stimulated during penetration, women reported reaching orgasm approximately 51-60%."
If all of this is sounding pretty nice so far, then keep scrolling to shop the best-of-the-best suction sex toys — including ones that have the sexpert-stamp of approval.
