A Guide to Clitoral Suction Toys: What Are Clitoral Suction Sex Toys, How to Use Clit Toys & More!


All the rage in the sex toy world right now: clitoral suction sex toys! The world seems to finally be realizing that a large majority of women can’t reach orgasm without clitoral stimulation and sex toys are being made that specifically stimulate the clit!

Clitoral suction sex toys provide stimulation to the clitoris in a way that makes it feel as if the user is receiving oral. The suction part of the toy completely surrounds the clit, whether placed directly on the clit or at a distance and provides a mouth-like sensation. This can then provide the receiver with intense, incredible, immeasurable orgasms!


In this article, we’re going to take a close look at clitoral suction toys! We’ll be taking a look at how clitoral suction toys work, how you can incorporate them into sex, how you can clean them, and give you an insight into the best clit suction toys out there.

How Do Clitoral Suction Sex Toys Work?

Clitoral suction toys stimulate the clitoris by creating an airflow and applying pressure around the clitoris. This stimulation promotes blood flow into the area and increases sensitivity. This sensitivity further stimulates the clitoris and can bring the user to orgasm.


So how do you actually use a clitoral suction vibrator? To begin, the user gently separates the labia with their fingers. Then the user placse the suction head over the clitoris so it encloses the clitoris. Sit back, relax, and begin adjusting the modes on your clit toy to find your heaven!


What Is The Difference Between Clitoral Suction Toys and Clitoral Pumps?

Clitoral suction toys are different to clitoral pumps that are also used to stimulate the clit in the way that they use air. Classic clitoral pumps remove air and create a vacuum, pumping up the clit and causing sensitivity, whereas clitoral suction toys create an airflow around the clitoris.


Clitoral suction toys also always have electrical components, whereas clitoral pumps are typically devices that are used manually.

How To Clean Clitoral Suction Sex Toys

Cleaning sex toys is absolutely essential if you want to reduce the likelihood of getting infection from your toys and keep yourself safe. You need to clean your sex toy every time after using it and store it in a clean, dust-free space to ensure that it stays bacteria-free. However, not all sex toys can be cleaned the same (check out our article on how to clean sex toys!).

Most clitoral suction sex toys are made from silicone (one of the most safe and clean materials for sex toys to be made from!), but they do have electronic components. Therefore, to properly clean clitoral suction sex toys, you should take a bowl of warm water, mild antibacterial soap, and a clean cloth. You can then clean the clitoral suction toy with the cloth. Make sure you take time to clean the small circular suction area of the toy! Since most clitoral suction sex toys are electrical, you cannot fully submerge them unless they are fully waterproof.

Once you’ve cleaned the clitoral suction toy, you need to put it somewhere clean and dust-free to air dry. Once the toy is fully dried, you should store the toy in another clean, dust-free, dry space to ensure that bacteria cannot cling onto or harbour on the toy whilst you’re not using it!
