From the very first moment of my encounter with my first suction stimulator I knew I was onto something new and exciting. It’s something I’d never experienced before but I fell in love with it instantly. I think I even love it as much as my favourite bullet vibrator now. I have a multitude of these toys at this point so there are naturally some that I like more than others. Out of the five original Satisfyers there was one that I didn’t particularly like and one that I felt indifferent about. The Pro Deluxe was the latter. When Satisfyer announced that they’d be releasing next generation editions of each model I asked them if they’d be willing to send me the updated version to review. I wanted to see if there were any changes that would redeem the Deluxe and make me fall in love with it. After a thorough testing I still can’t say that this model is a favourite of mine although I do think I got on with it better this time around and I can see it working for some people.
The packaging for the Deluxe was as expected, minimalistic and classic. It hasn’t changed from the original models at all. It still shows a product shot on the front and back along with a few key features printed on the sides. Inside the box, the toy rested inside some plastic casing alongside the charging cable and glossy user manual. It does not come with any storage which is a minor downside. I’m holding out hope that they’ll include a small pouch with future products.
It’s made up of a smooth plastic surface and a high-grade silicone head. Both of these materials are free from phthalates and latex and are completely body-safe. You have no need to worry about bad odours or bacteria trapping itself in the pores. It can be used with any water-based lubricants and I recommend applying some to the rim of the nozzle and some to the clitoral area. Don’t use too much or it will be hard to keep in position but some will make use more comfortable. It’s fully waterproof so cleaning is no chore. It can be rinsed with warm soapy water after each use and simply left to dry. You can also remove the nozzle for a more thorough clean and the heads can be sanitized properly with a 10% bleach solution.
The Pro Deluxe Next Generation is rechargeable via a USB and magnetic clip system. Just attach the clips to the magnetic prongs on the base of the device and wait for the flashing light to start. It goes steady when the charge is finished. It takes around ninety minutes or so for a full charge and offers the same amount of use time on the lower intensities. I can get several uses from each charge and it holds battery life well between those uses.
A key difference between the Pro Deluxe and the Pro Deluxe Next Generation is the control panel. It now has two clear buttons that function as I wanted them to on the original model. You press the four wave button down for a couple of seconds to turn on. This should start on the lowest intensity. You can then tap this button up to eleven times to scroll through the rest of the options or press and hold it down for a few seconds to turn off. The two wave button will take you back down through the intensities allowing you to go back a setting if you accidentally turn it up too high. I’m really glad they implemented this control panel this time around as it’s much easier to use and removes some of my previous irritations with the product.
So, who is best suited to a product like the Pro Deluxe? Someone who likes direct clitoral contact. If you know that precise pressure in this area is overwhelming, numbing or uncomfortable for you then this style of toy won’t be suited to you. It will not work for everyone. I personally prefer pinpoint and direct stimulation so these models work well for my preferences and needs. The Pro Deluxe works by parting the labia to reveal the clitoris and placing it over the area at whatever angle feels best.
What were my previous issues with the Pro Deluxe? I had three main problems with it. The first was the control panel which has since been addressed. The second issue was more of a personal preference rather than a fault of the product itself. The shape. I just prefer long-handled suction vibrators as they seem to be easier to hold and I can vary the way that I position the toy to keep things interesting or vary the amount of pressure I’m using. For those reasons, the Satisfyer 2 and Pro 2 are more comfortable for me to use and give me the variation I’m looking for. If mobility or reach issues are something that you struggle with, the longer handled models will probably be better for you too.
The third issue was the biggest hinderance. If you look back at the previous models (minus the Penguin) then you’ll notice that they each have heads that are made from a thick oval of silicone. The Pro Deluxe has a dramatically thinner nozzle which doesn’t provide the same amount of comfort and suction as the others do. It feels less intense to me and it’s somewhat of a battle to find a placement over my clitoris that allows me to feel enough of the sensations.
I could put this down to my anatomy as I have a small clitoris and innie labia which doesn’t seem to fit with the design of this flatter nozzle. If you have fleshier labia than I do and/or a large clitoris then this may be more inclined to work for you. I looked at this as a downside last time but having tested this again I have half changed my mind on this. I think it’s wonderful to see different vulva types being accommodated for and hopefully this means that there will now be a suitable Satisfyer model for everyone who likes direct suction stimulation.
So whilst this might not be the perfect model for me, I can’t fault the level of intensities that it has. It doesn’t force orgasms from my body like some of the others do but this is due to the nozzle shape not being right for my anatomy rather than a fault of the product. I can orgasm with this although it takes several minutes more than my beloved Pro 2 Next Generation or Pro Penguin Next Generation. I admittedly won’t use this as often as other models as I like quick, reliable orgasms from my toys but it could be fun to use during sex.
As I said in my review of the original Pro Deluxe, none of the Satisfyer models are completely quiet. The mechanisms involved simply won’t allow total silence. Having said that, this version makes slightly less noise than the original when used on high. If discretion is a must have for you, then you could easily drown out the sound of the motor by covering up with a duvet or playing some sort of background noise.
You can purchase the Satisfyer Pro Deluxe Next Generation (£38.40) from Amazon. I will update with more links when retailers update their stock to include this new model.
