Clit suckers, sucking vibrators, suction toys – no matter what you call them – these vibrators are unlike any other vibrator you’ve ever tried. They offer intense, enveloping, all-over clitoral stimulation that is said to produce intense clitoral orgasms within minutes. 

Some say these suction devices even resemble sensations of oral sex. (Whaaaat?)

    7 more tips on how to use a clit sucker for maximum pleasure 

    For those who want to go a little more in-depth on how to use a clit sucker like a pro – we’ve got your back. Below we have 7 tips to help you get the most out of your new sucking vibrator. 

    To be honest, there’s no one right method for how to use a clit sucker but, there are some tips that may set you up for orgasmic success.


    #1 Keep a full charge for best performance 

    Most sucking vibrators, like Aura and Kai, are powered by rechargeable lithium batteries. In order for the sucker to operate at full capacity, it needs a full charge. 

    It’s also best to keep it charged as it is said to lengthen the lifespan of the battery – and thus, your new clit sucker vibe. 


    #2 Get hot and bothered first

    Don’t go in cold. 

    It’s always best to work yourself up to using a clitoral stimulator. We’d recommend you don’t start out with guns blazing. (I mean you totally can, but sucking vibes get you off very quickly. The longer you work up to it, the better it will feel.)

    So, get aroused, turned on, and “ready” before you try your new sucking vibrator. 

    When getting in the mood, remember your five senses – sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste – are all involved with arousal. So watch or listen to something that turns you on, light a scented candle, touch or massage your erogenous zones. 

    Use all your senses to get you ready for clitoral stimulation.   

    #3 Use a water-based lubricant

    Even though BerryLemon’s clit sucker devices are all made with silky smooth silicone, we still recommend using a bit of lube when using one. There are a few reasons for this. 

    No matter the type of stimulation – you don’t want any friction. And lube adds that extra layer of feel-good slip and slide. 

    Some have gone so far as to say combining lubricant and sucking vibrators is the recipe for simulating oral sex. (Reason enough.) 

    Secondly, when you’re using a sucking vibrator you might not have worked up enough build-up arousal to become naturally lubricated as you might during foreplay. So, adding a bit of lube helps bridge that gap. 


    #4 Position and cradle the clit within the sucker 

    The best tip for how to use a clit sucker is: position it correctly

    In the photo above you’ll notice a circulator opening on the front of Aura, our 3-in-1 stimulator. That is where all the air pulse magic happens. 

    Unlike a traditional vibrator, sucking air pulse vibrators offer enveloping, indirect, and all-over clitoral stimulation. You get that by placing the clitoris in the center of the air pulse circular sucker. 

    Before you turn on the vibrator it’s best to place the circulator bit over the top of your clitoris. When you turn it on, the gentle air pulse will create a seal.

    When you’ve got it in the right place, you’ll know it. 

    #5 Start low and slow

    When you’ve got your sucking vibe on, start at the lowest vibration setting and stay there for a bit. If you want more stimulation, explore the rest of the settings. 

    There are often “slow and pulsing” settings on pulse toys where the device will vibrate in a “pulse-pause-pulse-pause-pulse-pause” manner (as opposed to constant vibes). This might be another nice place to explore when you’re new to these sucking vibrators.  


    #6 Try using the barrier method

    Try using the sucking vibrator over the top of the panties to create a barrier between yourself and the air pulsations. 

    The barrier method is great for those who want to create a build-up, make their self-pleasuring time last longer, and for those who prefer a lower intensity.  

    The barrier method is also a great place to start for the very first vibe session. This may help you get familiar first without jumping into the deep end. Just remove the barrier when you want to try direct stimulation. 

    #7 Explore the range of pulse patterns and intensity levels 

    Most sucking vibrators have a handful of pulse settings to enjoy. Our pulse air toys have 7 pulse patterns and intensity levels. This is to ensure that there are settings to please everyone. 

    Most often people find one or two they like and they stick with them. But, we recommend trying them all at some point to experience everything the sucking vibrator has to offer. 

    Remember everyone is different. So, if any particular setting is unenjoyable, stop and go back to what you do enjoy.

    For vulva owners everywhere, suction vibrators now have “prime of place” in our bedside tables. 

    How you use a clit sucking vibrator matters. Get aroused before using, use a bit of lube, cradle the clit within the sucker to create a seal, and start low and slow.
