As you may have guessed from its name, a clit sucking vibrator is a sex toy that stimulates your clitoris with a sensation that feels like cunnilingus.

Well, they’ve made a vibrator that can simulate oral sex. Welcome to the future!

These vibrators are meant to create an almost realistic mouth-like feel, usually using negative air pressure that creates suction directly over the clitoris.

Clit sucking vibrators are primarily used to stimulate the clitoris but they can also be used on:

  • Nipples
  • Vulva
  • Labia
  • Labiocrural fold (the crease where the outer labia meets the thighs)
  • Frenulum (located beneath the head of the penis)
  • Perineum (located between the genitals and anus)
  • Any erogenous zone that’s craving a sucking sensation

Like most sex toys, there’s no wrong way to use them as long as it’s safe and you’re having fun — and the same holds true for clit sucking vibrators.

We’ll explain everything you need to know about using clit suckers, but if you’re thinking about trying one, click here for our top recommendations.

What Is A Clit Sucking Vibrator?

A clit sucking vibrator uses sonic or air pulses to create a suckling sensation on and around your clitoris.

With just a touch of water-based lube, most will “latch” onto the clit, gently pulling it in soft, rhythmic patterns through motorized suction.

These toys contain a different kind of motor compared to phallic vibrators and simulate the feeling of having a partner suck on your clit pretty realistically, as I discovered when I tried the Baci.

(Now imagine if your partner’s lips also vibrated…)

To accommodate the type of motor required for such sensations, however, you might be hard-pressed to find a petite clit sucking vibrator — most will fit into the palm of your hand, but not a small purse pocket.

If you’re looking for something super discreet to take with you on the go, this may not be the toy for you — a small bullet vibrator might be your best choice.

Clit suckers have a round or oval opening that is placed over your clitoris during use. Although the size of the opening is not typically adjustable — unless the vibrator includes interchangeable “heads” — clit sucking vibrators are designed to accommodate most clitorises.

Clit sucking vibrators can have a range of features that include:

  • Being waterproof
  • Being rechargeable
  • Providing internal G spot stimulation (in some models)
  • Having a ridged texture or tongue-like flicks for added sensation (in some models)
  • Offering varied vibration pattern and intensity settings
  • Providing multiple “heads” of different sizes (in some models)
  • The ability for hands-free use if they “latch” onto the clit
  • The ability for use during penetrative intercourse

Some are round like an egg (such as the Lora DiCarlo Baci I mentioned earlier) while others are shaped more like a non-contact thermometer, like the Womanizer Starlet 2.

Different clit suckers make a range of noise but they can be a little louder — particularly when they are latching onto the clit or being unlatched. If the vibrator is waterproof, it can be used underwater to muffle the sound.

When it comes to the price, however, these vibrators tend to be a bit more spendy no matter where you buy them from, with the average clit sucking vibrator going for about $100.

Some higher-end clit suckers top $200 or more.

But you get what you pay for!

The technology behind these vibes is more advanced compared to vibrators of the past, and can you really put a price tag on a clit sucker that never tires?

How To Use A Clit Sucking Vibrator

Most clit sucking vibrators are designed to be used by placing the opening over your clitoral hood and clitoris. Once it’s pressed against your body and the device is turned on, suction is created.

That sounds easy enough, but there can be a bit of a learning curve involved.

Everybody is different, and the precise placement of the clit sucker will depend on the style of toy, the shape of your vulva, your body’s position, and your personal preferences.

The best advice we can give is just to experiment with the placement of your toy until you find what’s right for you.

One important aspect to note about this “sexperimentation” involves the use of lube.

As we’ll talk about in just a bit, water-based lube can help clit suckers to “latch” onto the clitoris more easily. You likely won’t need more than a drop or two, but a little slippery moisture will improve the suction — and the sensation you get from it.

How To Use A Clit Sucking Vibrator For Masturbation

The majority of clit suckers have different vibration settings for patterns and intensity. Once you find the correct placement for your toy, you’ll need to decide which settings you enjoy.

Do you want a randomized pattern that keeps you guessing or uninterrupted vibrations you can predict?

Would you prefer a low, rumbly intensity or do you want to put the pedal to the metal and see what it can do?

It’s a good idea to start on the lowest setting — especially as you’re getting familiar with your new clit suction toy.

Some of these suckers can be surprisingly powerful and depending on your sensitivity, the suction might come on too strong if you crank it up to “10” right away.

(And no, they’re not going to suck hard enough to leave hickeys on your clit.)

When using a clit sucking vibrator during masturbation, try altering the angle of the toy, as well — you might open yourself up to new sensations you never imagined.

Speaking of that, clit suckers can tantalize more than just your clitoris. Try adding a drop of lube to each nipple and use your vibrator on them one at a time.

Just because “clit” is in the name, doesn’t mean your vibrator can’t be used elsewhere. Place the opening along your favorite erogenous zones that are craving a little suction and see where the night takes you!

​​How Can Couples Use Clit Sucking Vibrators?

Clit suckers can enhance partner play in myriad ways.

As we mentioned earlier, they can be used to create suction along any erogenous zone — so using a touch of water-based lube on the toy’s opening, partners can tease each other all over.

A clit sucking vibrator can be used anywhere along the vulva or labia during oral sex for additional sensation, and even along the labiocrural fold — the crease where the inner thighs meet the outer labia.

During oral sex, the receiving partner can use the clit sucker on their own nipples or elsewhere as an “extra mouth” wherever they’d like to feel it most.

Similarly, a clit sucking vibrator can create suction along the frenulum (the sensitive underside of the head of the penis) or the perineum (located between the genitals and anus) during oral sex or hand jobs.

Although they’re designed for vulvas, clit suckers can explore a whole lot more.

How Can You Use A Clit Sucking Vibrator During Sex?

A clit sucker can be a great addition to penetrative sex, as many women don’t orgasm from that alone.

However, depending on the overall design of your toy, your clit sucking vibrator may cover the opening of the vagina too much, making simultaneous penetrative sex difficult.

For this reason, if you are hoping to use your clit sucker during penetration, you may have better luck picking a model with a handle that can be held pointed toward the abdomen during use, like the Satisfyer Pro 2 or the Womanizer Pro40.

That said, a clit sucker shouldn’t interfere with access to the anus, so it can be held against the clitoris during anal penetration, regardless of its design.

  • Do You Need Lube With A Clit Sucking Vibrator?

Although clit suction vibrators can be used as they are, some people like to use lube (or even their own spit, although we don’t recommend it) to create better suction.

Lube is a great idea, but make sure you’re using the correct lube for the materials your toy is made from. Many clit suckers are crafted from silicone, and silicone lube should never be used with these.

If you’re unsure of what your vibrator is made from, water-based lube is your best bet. Water-based lubricant can be paired with toys made from any material and has a similar consistency to your body’s natural lubricant.

Oil-based or silicone lubricants may not be compatible with certain sex toy materials so if you plan to use either of those it’s best to get to the bottom of what your toy is made of.

Can You Put A Clit Sucking Vibrator Inside You?

It can be  — if the toy’s design allows for it.

While many clit sucking vibrators are waterproof, not all of them offer a design that’s suitable for insertion into the vagina or anus.

Particularly with clit suckers that have a rounded, or egg-like shape, it may be impossible.

Those that have an elongated shape and a “handle” of sorts may do well for internal stimulation, especially if you’re looking for suction over your G-spot and it isn’t located too deeply inside you.

Still, it may not be the best use of your toy’s suction superpowers — the sensation may be “lost” inside you and not strong enough to do much of anything.

But as always, if it works for you, run with it!

Similarly, you may be able to use a clit sucking vibrator anally but it’s unlikely you’ll be able to get the full suction sensation with nothing to “latch” on to.

Additionally, it’s not a good idea to use toys anally if they were not designed for that use. Anal sex toys feature a flanged or wider base that prevents them from going all the way up into the anus.

If a toy gets “sucked” into it, you may be looking at a trip to the ER to have it removed.

Are Clit Sucking Vibrators Safe?

When it comes to any type of sex toy — including clit suckers — the safest ones are made from ABS plastic and high-quality silicone.

Most clit sucking vibrators on the market will be made of these two materials, with silicone typically being used for the parts that come in contact with your body, and ABS plastic on the buttons or accents.

When shopping for clit suckers, materials to avoid include:

  • Jelly rubber
  • Rubber
  • TPR/TPE blends

Toys made with these materials or any other non-body-safe materials can be dangerous, resulting in irritation, infection, or worse.

Some people worry that clit sucking vibrators can desensitize their clitoris. In reality, you would need much more stimulation than a clit sucker can muster, and it’s highly unlikely that it could happen at all.

Although it’s possible to experience temporary desensitization (not to be confused with actual nerve damage) from prolonged use of a vibrator, taking a break for a bit will be enough to renew sensation.
