I’d seen this toy advertised on Twitter prior to receiving it for review and I was quite excited about it. It was being marketed as unique and innovative, so I couldn’t wait to see for myself if that was the case. After spending several weeks attached to the Satisfyer Pro 2, I am going to have to disagree with claims that this is a completely innovative product. It does feel quite similar to that of the Womanizer W500 and the Femme Fatale Clitorizer. The Satisfyer Pro 2 does have advantages over its similar predecessors though, which make it a very worthy competitor.
I received a sample version of the Satisfyer, so it didn’t arrive in full packaging, but from what I’ve seen, it’s presented nicely. Mine arrived in a clear, sealed packet, along with the charging cable and a brief key features guide.
The Satisfyer is rechargeable via a USB and magnetic clip system. It’s extremely sturdy and doesn’t disconnect easily at all, unlike the similar We-Vibe chargers. Before charging, I checked the website for an estimate of how long a full charge would take and it said the initial charge could take up to eight hours. It actually only took around three hours for mine to charge fully, but I’m not sure if this is because mine was a tester. It’s been charged a few times since and now takes roughly 2 and a half hours. This 150 minute charging time gives roughly 30 minutes of playtime, which doesn’t sound like much, because it isn’t. I’ve never needed to use this toy for that long in one session, so I don’t mind too much, but I would have preferred a little more use from it before needing to recharge it. At the moment, it lasts maybe 3-4 sessions per charge.
The Satisfyer is made up of a rose gold plastic body and a high-grade silicone head. The buttons are also made from the same smooth silicone, so I’d only recommend using water-based lubricant to avoid any damage to these areas. Due to the plastic body, there are some visible seams on the Satisfyer, which isn’t the most appealing thing to look at, but all is forgotten once the toy whirls into action. I think the design of this toy is much nicer than the Womanizers, but it still ended up resembling a thermometer.
The Satisfyer is a very easy toy to get to know, as it’s operated by a simple two button interface. The smaller button at the bottom turns on the toy with a gentle tap and turns it off when pressed and held for a few seconds. The longer oval button changes the intensity and cycles through the eleven different settings with each tap.
During the first use, I lay back and placed the Satisfyer over my clitoris, finding the most accurate and comfortable position for me, before turning it on. This toy doesn’t need to be moved again once you’ve found the right spot. Once I’d pressed the button, I immediately felt this cooling breeze against my clitoris, that started to increase the sensitivity to the area. I also began to feel a gentle tingling sensation, that reminded me of an orgasm enhancing product like the Sliquid Organics O Gel. A few months ago, I would never have thought that a toy could create a similar feeling to an orgasm enhancer, but I’m so glad that this technology now exists and appears to be becoming very popular.
I have been using the Satisfyer quite frequently since I got it, mostly on settings 7 and above. I can orgasm in less than 5 minutes on anything higher than seven. It’s hard to describe exactly how a toy like this feels, as it’s in-between suction and vibration. It can feel quite strange at first and is a type of stimulation that may need a few tries to become accustomed to. It provides extremely pin-pointed stimulation, so if you’re one of those people who dislike this, you probably won’t enjoy the Satisfyer. If however, you are like me and you do like it, then I’d highly recommend this toy.
I prefer direct stimulation over most other kinds and that’s exactly what I get overtime from the Satisfyer. The pin-point stimulation combined with the gentle suction/cooling/tingling sensation is enough to produce a pretty powerful and reliable orgasm. This has become like a suction version of my beloved Tango, but dare I say it? a little bit stronger. If this were a vibrator, I’d class the suction from this toy as ‘deep’ because it manages to penetrate below the surface, rather than being surface-level and numbing.
So what are the key differences between the Satisfyer and the Womanizer? Well, the Satisfyer is fully waterproof! I (and many others) have been longing for Womanizer to make a water-friendly version, but alas, this hasn’t happened (yet), so I think this is a great feature that makes the Satisfyer stand out and be possible competition for the Womanizer. (Update June 2017 – a waterproof womanizer now exists!) It’s still less offensive to look at than the Womanizer, with no leopard print or crystals in sight and also much cheaper at £69.99, making it a more affordable option for those who’ve been waiting for a drastic sale on the Womanizer.
Being waterproof, makes it a breeze to clean. The head is removable, so I like to detach it from the toy and place close attention to it with an old toothbrush and some antibacterial cleaning spray, as it seems to attract lube. This makes me feel reassured that it’s as clean as it can be. I then just rinse the rest of the toy, spritz it with cleaner and leave it to dry.
One last thing I must tell you about the Satisfyer is that it’s rather quiet when in contact with the skin, even on the highest intensity! It’s quite noisy when it’s not against the clitoris, but nothing that a duvet couldn’t disguise. I would feel comfortable recommending this to people who are in need of discretion, as when in use, it’s one of the quietest toys I’ve tried so far.
Overall, I’d highly recommend the Satisfyer Pro 2 if you enjoy pin-point, direct and intense clitoral stimulation. I think it feels similar (in terms of intensity) but it just beats the Womanizer W500 for me. It has a couple of extra levels of oomph that I just adore. To sum it up, it’s a waterproof, not-so-tacky, suction toy that ticks all the same boxes as the Womanizer (if not more), for half the price.
I received the Satisfyer Pro 2 (£69.99) from Lovehoney, in exchange for my honest review. Thank you! Affiliate links have been used within this post.
