It’s hard to overemphasize Womanizer’s influence in the sex toy industry.

Their epony­mous cli­toral air pulse mas­sager was the first of its kind. Rather than vibrat­ing or deliv­er­ing one-way suc­tion, the mem­brane inside the noz­zle thumped back and forth, like a robot­ic pair of lips rasp­ber­ry­ing against you.

The orig­i­nal mod­el looked about as sexy as that last sen­tence sound­ed. And the name sucked. But users like myself were will­ing to over­look that if it meant mind-blowing, pre­cise­ly con­trolled cli­toral suck­ing and blowing.

It was baf­fling. Air pulse vibra­tors can be flut­tery yet deep and rumbly at the same time. They’re local­ized but don’t direct­ly touch the part they’re stim­u­lat­ing. And they’re (usu­al­ly) stealthy but deli­cious­ly powerful.

(What is rumbly or buzzy? Rumbly vibes are lower-pitched with big­ger move­ments, while buzzy ones tend to be more mosquito-like and sur­face level.)

Lucky for me, almost every cli­toral air pulse mas­sager I’ve tried feels love­ly for my body. But there cer­tain­ly are dif­fer­ences among the dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers’ ren­di­tions since then.


Clitoral air pulse massager intensity and feature comparison

I’ve com­pared 23 dif­fer­ent air pulse vibra­tors to help you decide which one is right for you. Since there are so many, I’ve divid­ed them into a few key cat­e­gories to consider:

I’m rating the intensities on a scale of 1–14, with the Womanizer Premium 2’s 14 speed settings as the standard. 

Because, yes, the Womanizer Premium 2 has the widest inten­si­ty range, encom­pass­ing what the oth­er pres­sure wave stim­u­la­tors can do, and then some.

It’s hel­la rumbly. And its top speed puts it at the most pow­er­ful cli­toral air pulse mas­sager I’ve tried. Yes, more potent than the LELO Sona 2 Cruise and Lora DiCarlo Baci and the Inya Rose (more on all­l­ll of those later).

Womanizer Premium 2 vs. Premium

While I have my favorites, every body is dif­fer­ent. Let’s dis­cuss the fea­tures that might give my read­ers a bet­ter expe­ri­ence with pres­sure wave stimulators.


Most powerful clitoral air pulse massagers

Womanizer Premium 2: the best all-arounder

Womanizer knew what they were doing with their Premium 2. To recap dif­fer­ences between the Womanizer Premium and Classic mod­els, the for­mer comes with way more options:

  • A more com­pre­hen­sive range of intensities
  • Patterns — rhythms, waves, escalation
  • Smart Silence tech­nol­o­gy — the motor stops puls­ing when you pull the noz­zle away from your body. Useful for room­mate situations
  • Auto Pilot modes — “jour­neys” that auto­mat­i­cal­ly ramp up and down for a tease before the explo­sive build-up

The most notable dif­fer­ence between the Womanizer Premium and Premium 2? The new ver­sion has a broad­er range and more pow­er­ful speed settings.

More specif­i­cal­ly, the old Premium has 12 speed set­tings, while the Premium 2 has 14. The former’s bot­tom speed is about 2.5, and the top is about 11 out of 14 on the new Premium 2’s scale. Meanwhile, the old Classic mod­el goes from a 4 to a 10.5

Left to right: Womanizer Premium 2, Premium, Classic 2, Classic, Starlet 3, Liberty

Tl;dr, the Womanizer Premium 2’s com­bi­na­tion of inten­si­ty and fan­tas­tic con­trol pan­el makes it my top choice for the best pres­sure wave mas­sager. That doesn’t mean it’s for every body, though.

Womanizer Premium 2 vs. Classic 2 vs. Liberty vs. Starlet 3

The Womanizer Premium 2 has more set­tings and a wider speed range, but just how much does it dif­fer from the oth­er Womanizer models?

SettingsIntensityControlsPrice
Premium 214 steady, 3 autopilot1 to 144 but­tons + Smart Silence sensor$189
Classic 210 steady3 to 123 but­tons$123
Liberty6 steady2.5 to 8.52 but­tons$94
Starlet 36 steady2 to 7.52 but­tons$75

Let’s start with the new (also recent­ly revamped) Womanizer Classic 2 and Starlet 3.

Compared to the Premium 2’s 14 set­tings, the Classic 2 starts at about a 3 and ends at a 12 out of 14. You won’t get all the frills, but the price makes it a fan­tas­tic com­pro­mise. (To be frank, I nev­er used the Womanizer Premium’s Auto Pilot settings.)

The Womanizer Starlet 3, in con­trast, starts at about a 2 and ends at a 7.5 out of 14. Finally, we have the Womanizer Liberty, which is only a lit­tle stronger, with a range of 2 to 8.5.

All of the Womanizer exter­nal cli­toral toys come with detach­able sil­i­cone “mouths” mea­sur­ing about 16 mm by 12 mm. (They sup­pos­ed­ly come in two sizes by default, but the dif­fer­ence is minor.)

Inya Rose, Dame Aer, We-Vibe Melt

Before the Womanizer Premium 2 came out, I used to rec­om­mend the:

  • Lora DiCarlo Baci (now dis­con­tin­ued) as the most rumbly pres­sure wave stimulator
  • NS Inya Rose as the strongest
  • LELO Sona 2 Cruise and We-Vibe Melt as the most suction-intensive

More recent­ly, I also tried the Dame Aer, per a reader’s request, and I was pleas­ant­ly sur­prised. All of the afore­men­tioned cli­toral air pulse toys are hel­la powerful.

NS Novelties Inya Rose viral sex toy vs. Blossom Rose with flicking tongue vs. Dame Aer vs. We-Vibe Melt air pulse massager.
Left to right: NS Inya Rose, Nasstoys Blossom Rose, Dame Aer, We-Vibe Melt

And there are real rea­sons why some­one might choose them over the Womanizers.

For one, the Premium 2 is expen­sive. But that’s not unwar­rant­ed: it comes with a boun­ty of speed set­tings and pat­terns. And that’s impor­tant if you’re high­ly multi-orgasmic or sen­si­tive after orgasm.

But not every­one needs that. The Womanizer Classic 2 or Starlet 3 is enough range for plen­ty of users. And for oth­er users, anoth­er brand entire­ly may be a bet­ter fit.

First, I’ll com­pare the Inya Rose, Dame Aer, We-Vibe Melt, and Lora DiCarlo Baci. Then, I’ll leave the LELO Sona 2 for the “please avoid” section.

Rose sex toy soul-snatching viral TikTok clitoral suction toy

NS Novelties Inya Rose clitoral suction vibrator: best bang-to-buck ratio

If it’s straight-up pow­er you want, then yes, the infa­mous TikTok “soul snatch­er” rose sex toy is worth the hype for you per­son­al­ly. It’s the most pow­er­ful cli­toral air pulse toy for the price. For bet­ter or worse, you won’t get any sub­tle­ty with it.

The NS Inya Rose mas­sager is also ele­gant and dis­creet, which you might care about more than I do.

Downsides to the rose sex toy: again, the con­trols and set­tings are lack­ing. You only have three steady but buzzy inten­si­ties: “OMG,” “OMFG,” and “OMFG!” and you can’t quick­ly turn the speed down. That’s a deal­break­er for me per­son­al­ly. And, par for its strength, this toy is quite loud.

Dame Aer: strongest air pulse massager for pairing with intercourse

Dame Products start­ed with sex toys for cou­ples to incor­po­rate into inter­course, and their Aer design fits right in with that pursuit.

Dame Aer powerful clitoral air pulse massager with wide opening

The Dame Aer’s noz­zle is skewed, so there’s no over­hang hog­ging vul­var real estate. In oth­er words, it leaves plen­ty of room sur­round­ing the vagi­na to insert a penis or toy.

But it’s not for the faint of cli­toris; if you need some gen­tle set­tings on a qui­et sex toy, the Dame Aer isn’t it. It’s quite loud and proud, though it car­ries Dame’s sig­na­ture flutter.

Its three-button con­trol pan­el is fan­tas­tic (up, down, pat­terns), and its air puls­es are shock­ing­ly intense, mak­ing the Aer the strongest mas­sager by Dame Products I’ve ever tried.

We-Vibe Melt: best air pulse massager for couple play

The We-Vibe Melt has a sim­i­lar pro­file to the Dame Aer, and for the same rea­son: to leave room for a partner’s penis dur­ing inter­course (hence the name, We-Vibe).

We-Vibe Melt massager coral pink

Its high­est speed is only a tad less pow­er­ful than the Dame Aer’s (10 vs. 11 out of 14), and it’s a bit stronger than the Lora DiCarlo Baci’s. Indeed, the We-Vibe Melt is also one of the most pow­er­ful cli­toral air pulse mas­sagers. And the low end of its speed range is quite gen­tle, too. (3.5 out 14).

But that’s not the only thing that makes it unique; you have access to the con­tin­u­ous speed range, custom-make pat­terns, and con­trol a We-Vibe Melt via Bluetooth. And yes, the smart­phone app includes long-distance play with a built-in video chat func­tion. My ex-partner and I used the We-Connect app togeth­er quite often while quar­an­ti­ning in sep­a­rate hous­es in 2020.

The We-Vibe Melt isn’t the absolute strongest, but it’s up there — robust with intense suc­tion and hel­la fea­tures. The oth­ers just can’t top the We-Vibe Melt as the most ver­sa­tile cli­toral air pulse massager.

Lora DiCarlo Baci: best for massaging the whole vulva

Lora DiCarlo Baci microrobotic powerful oral sex simulator with air pulses and travel cover

Meanwhile, the Lora DiCarlo Baci owns its space on the user’s vul­va, opt­ing to vibrate against the labia while blow­ing air on the cli­toris. Its flat base effort­less­ly lays sta­tion­ary on a flat sur­face while rid­ing and hump­ing it.

The con­trols and speed range are great, the air puls­es are rumbly, and it comes with a hygien­ic trav­el cap. While it’s not as strong as the clit-sucking toys men­tioned above, the Lora DiCarlo Baci’s low­er set­tings have deli­cious depth to them.

Plus, the Baci’s oval open­ing is wider than some oth­er air pulse toy noz­zles, mak­ing it a slight­ly bet­ter fit for some­one with a broad­er exter­nal cli­toris. (More on that later).

The down­side: the “lips” around the open­ing are thin and sharp, mean­ing they might not be as com­fort­able as a fuller, soft­er sil­i­cone noz­zle. It doesn’t both­er me, but you may want to keep it in mind if you plan on sit­ting on top of the Lora DiCarlo Baci to ride it hands-free.

Overall, though, I think the Baci is worth it for the rum­ble and labi­al massage.

UPDATE NOV. 2022: Lora DiCarlo has gone out of busi­ness. RIP.

I’ll keep this sec­tion short since I already waxed poet­ic about the We-Vibe Melt and Dame Aer above.

The best cli­toral air pulse mas­sagers for part­ner play are as follows:

  1. We-Vibe Melt — great con­trols and speed range, option for Bluetooth app and long-distance remote con­trol, ver­sa­tile AF
  2. Dame Aer — low-profile design, 3‑button con­trol pan­el, pow­er­ful AF
  3. Satisfyer Curvy 3+ — also takes up min­i­mal vul­var real estate and is affordable
We-Vibe Melt vs. Dame Aer vs. Satisfyer Curvy 3+ side-by-side profile view
Left to right: We-Vibe Melt, Dame Aer, Satisfyer Curvy 3+

Pros and cons of the Satisfyer Curvy 3+

The Satisfyer Curvy 3+ is weak­er and surface-level, with an inten­si­ty range of 0.5 to 5 for air puls­es. Its vibra­tions are also quite buzzy, but they’re at least focused due to the nozzle’s thin rim. The Satisfyer Curvy line also fea­tures 3‑button con­trol pan­els and a Bluetooth remote phone app.

For under $40, it’s hard to com­plain about that. Just bear in mind that Satisfyer app con­nec­tion prob­lems may be espe­cial­ly preva­lent if you have an old­er smartphone.

My old Samsung Galaxy S7 con­nect­ed fine with my Satisfyer toy for solo play. Long-distance cou­ples’ play with the Satisfyer app didn’t work for me until I upgrad­ed to the Galaxy S21. (And yes, I tried iPhones, too. See my Satisfyer Curvy com­par­i­son review for fur­ther details on dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions I’ve tried.)

Satisfyer Curvy 3+ packaging

My verdict on which clit-sucking toy to use with a partner

Overall, the We-Vibe Melt is my top choice for:

  • A remote con­trol cli­toral air pulse massager
  • Pairing pres­sure waves with penetration

However, those who don’t care about the frills and just want intense air puls­es for a fair price would do more than fine with the Aer by Dame Products. Consider also that the Aer’s open­ing is larg­er than the Melt’s and Curvy 3+’s and will fit a broad­er range of users’ anatomy.

Finally, Satisfyer’s Curvy 3+ is more of an entry-level sam­pler of what this cat­e­go­ry can do for you. It’s sub­stan­tial­ly weak­er but also way cheap­er. The air pulse qual­i­ty is quite shal­low and sub-par, but it is real­ly cheap, and that def­i­nite­ly counts for something.


Widest openings among air pulse toys

Let’s say your clit is on the big­ger side, or you have some T‑dick growth action going. Clitoral air pulse stim­u­la­tors work under the assump­tion that the noz­zle can fit over your junk, so mea­sure­ments are essen­tial here.

LELO Sila, Dame Aer

Notably, the LELO Sila and Dame Aer’s open­ings mea­sure 20mm by 14mm wide. And that’s a big win for inclu­siv­i­ty since clits come in many sizes.

LELO Sila Spectrum Journal banner

You don’t have to take my word for it; here’s a trans masc person’s LELO Sila mas­sager review at Spectrum Journal.

LELO designed the Sila in response to com­plaints about the Sona mod­els’ “mouths” being too small. More on that later.

The Lora DiCarlo Baci’s mouth is the tee­ni­est bit wider, mea­sur­ing 20mm by 15 mm. However, its tun­nel is rel­a­tive­ly short com­pared to the oth­ers men­tioned in this sec­tion. I’d rec­om­mend using it over the hood rather than with it retracted.

Satisfyer Curvy 1+ and 2+

Maybe it’s the length that you’re look­ing for. The Satisfyer Curvy line’s air puls­es are gen­tle, rang­ing from 0.5 to 5. But their tun­nels are also among the longest I’ve encoun­tered in pres­sure wave stimulators:

  • Curvy 1+ — 16 mm wide by 16 mm by 42 mm deep
  • Curvy 2+ — 15 mm wide by 15 mm by 48 mm deep

(I find that the Curvy 2+’s rim aligns bet­ter with my cli­toral cru­ra, but your mileage will vary.)

Womanizer Starlet 3

What can I say? I like Womanizer prod­ucts. The Womanizer Starlet 3 offers the same rum­ble as the Womanizer Classic 2 and Premium 2, but for a far small­er price tag: $75.

For that, you get 6 speed set­tings. The low­est com­pares to a 2 on the Womanizer Premium and ends at 7.5. It’s stur­dy and well-made, and the con­trol pan­el allows you to turn the speed up and down with ease.

ROMP Toys pressure wave stimulators

Womanizer, We-Vibe, and ROMP Toys are all under the same par­ent com­pa­ny. ROMP Toys, the newest sub­sidiary, offers more afford­able pres­sure wave stim­u­la­tors, rang­ing from $30 to $50.

Ro

From low­est to the high­est price, that’s the ROMP Switch, Free, and Shine. The cheap­est one, the ROMP Switch, uses AA bat­ter­ies. The oth­er two are rechargeable.

Their motor strength is decent, with set­tings rang­ing from a 3 on the Womanizer Premium scale to a 7.5ish. The main (major, glar­ing) down­side of the ROMP Switch is that the bat­tery plate is hard to take off if you don’t know how to.

Long fin­ger­nails are rec­om­mend­ed. Stick a nail or gui­tar pick under the cov­er at the apex of the han­dle. Then, with the nail or pick still insert­ed, slide it up along the sides of the seams. You’ll hear a “pop” once you get halfway up, after which you can open the ROMP Switch.

Or just save your­self the has­sle and get a ROMP Free or Shine instead.

BMS Factory Pillow Talk Dreamy

BMS Factory Pillow Talk Dreamy Air Pulse Massager with fluttering tip

The Pillow Talk Dreamy air pulse massager’s design has some femme flair. And that’s not pure­ly for aes­thet­ics; the flared “lips” on the open­ing deliv­er vibra­tions all around, get­ting at part of the cli­toral crura.

Its air puls­es are on the buzzy side, start­ing at a 3 and end­ing at an 8 out of 14. On the whole, though, I love com­bin­ing the PIllow Talk Dreamy’s flut­tery and dif­fuse vibra­tions with the pres­sure waves’ zingy focus.

Satisfyer Pro 2 and Satisfyer Pro Penguin Vibration affordable air pulse massagers

The Satisfyer Pro 2 runs about $69. As with oth­er Satisfyer toys, this one is on the gen­tle end, with inten­si­ties from 1 to 6.5. It’s not as ver­sa­tile as the Curvy 3+ but has a lip­pi­er “mouth” and is a tad stronger. 

Satisfyer’s Pro Penguin (to me) also runs from a 0.5 to a 5. It’s buzzy and has a sharp qual­i­ty to it, which some users might like. It’s also cheap­er com­pared to the Pro 2.

Satisfyer Pro Penguin and Pro 2 Comparison

The Satisfyer Pro 1+ vibra­tion is pret­ty okay, too. The vibra­tions are mosquito-like, but the air puls­es get the job done. And I can’t com­plain about the con­trols. The Satisfyers work, and they’re OK for the price, but they’re too buzzy to “wow” me.

Inya Rose

I wrote about this one in more detail in an ear­li­er sec­tion. The main fac­toids you need to know: it has 3 speeds, it’s super strong, and it has no sub­tle­ty. Get a 14/14 in inten­si­ty for just $40. Proceed only if you’re sure that’s what you want.

Beware of these clitoral air pulse massagers

LELO Sona 2 and Sona 2 Cruise

I fuck­ing hate the LELO Sona 2 and how its pow­er stalls with pres­sure, but I can’t deny that the Sona 2 Cruise has decent vroom.

The ele­phant in the room about the LELO Sona 2 Cruise, though, is that the tun­nel inside the air pulse cham­ber is hel­la short. That trans­lates to a greater risk of repeat­ed­ly bump­ing up against the cli­toris, espe­cial­ly when paired with the toy’s strong suction.

20+ Best Clit-Sucking, Air Pulse, Pressure Wave Vibrators, Compared! 2
Left to right: LELO Sona 2 Cruise, Sona 2, Biird Obii / OSUGA Cuddly Bird

Proceed with cau­tion. Use it over the cli­toral hood only. Have one hand on the han­dle and one hand at the ready, near the noz­zle, ready to pry it off if it starts to hurt you. If you have a bigger-than-average clit, I sug­gest entire­ly steer­ing clear of the LELO Sona models.

(I also don’t appre­ci­ate how they han­dled the PR dis­as­ter sur­round­ing these prod­ucts and dis­missed users who had been injured. Yes, injured. Clitoral blis­ters, hos­pi­tal bills, and all.)

Biird Obii / OSUGA Cuddly Bird massager

The Obii / Cuddly Bird has the same issue as the LELO Sona series: the tun­nel is too damn small. Worse, the Obii and Cuddly Bird’s open­ing is the absolute small­est I have ever encoun­tered in an air pulse mas­sager. And yes, it has injured a fel­low toy reviewer.

Beyond clitoral stimulation alone

Want a lit­tle something-something dif­fer­ent? This sec­tion is for rab­bit vibra­tors and a penis stro­ker with air pulses.

The caveat to any review about dual stim­u­la­tors, though, is that they’re very anatomy-specific, so what works for me might not work for you, and vice ver­sa. Read the linked air pulse rab­bit reviews very thor­ough­ly before buying.

Womanizer DUO

I’m so glad I didn’t promise to write a full review for the Womanizer DUO rab­bit vibra­tor. The air pulse stim­u­la­tor is potent, and the G‑spot vibra­tions are rumbly, but the shape just doesn’t work for me.

The inter­nal and exter­nal prongs are just too bendy, spaced too far apart, just too non­com­mit­tal to push up where it mat­ters. Pity. The price is too much of a gam­ble for me to rec­om­mend any­one try the Womanizer DUO.

Let’s wrap it up!

There are so many clit suck­ing sex toys that it’s easy to get over­whelmed. A few tried-and-true favorites stand out, though.

Here are the main take­aways from this cli­toral air mas­sager comparison:

  • The Womanizer Premium 2 is the crème de la crème 
  • We-Vibe’s Melt offers the most bells and whistles
  • Aer by Dame Products has a wide open­ing and a low-profile, intu­itive design for pair­ing cli­toral stim­u­la­tion with intercourse.
  • ROMP Toys and Womanizer’s Starlet 3 are a nice bal­ance of inten­si­ty and price
  • Satisfyer offers some of the cheap­est air pulse mas­sagers, and the (lack of) strength shows it.

You may have noticed that I linked to mul­ti­ple dif­fer­ent shops in this post. When you shop via these links, I get a com­mis­sion at no extra cost to you.

These retail­ers sent me most of the prod­ucts in exchange for my hon­est review. In gen­er­al, I link to whichev­er shop sent me the item, though some­times, I’ll link to a dif­fer­ent one that has an espe­cial­ly good price. They’re all fan­tas­tic shops that I’d rec­om­mend to any of my clos­est friends, though.

    We have a Sona Cruise, a Womanizee Premium 2, a Satisfyer Pro + vibration…but our go-to is the old­er Satisfyer Traveler.

    Kinda bummed to see the Pro Penguin did­n’t make the line­up! I agree about the Satisfyer Pro line, but the Pro Penguin packs a lot more pow­er AND is reg­u­lar­ly on sale for under 30 bucks. I bought two in case mine breaks — I have a Starlet, but the Pro Penguin has at least dou­ble the set­tings and I don’t think I’ve ever made it to the top one! Plus the con­trols are so effort­less — some of these look real­ly tricky to press, espe­cial­ly in the dark/with lubefin­gers. If you’re not burned out entire­ly on suc­tion after review­ing 20 dif­fer­ent toys, I’d def­i­nite­ly rec­om­mend giv­ing it a try!

    Love a good com­par­i­son, espe­cial­ly when there’s a good num­ber scale to com­pare them! I have the Satisfyer Pro 1+ Vibration, and it’s just too weak. Do you have inten­si­ty lev­els for it? 

    Also love the tables. Would be love­ly to see a final table with all the options at the bot­tom of the review for easy comparing.

    Wow, what a comparison!
    I have We-Vibe Melt, Womanizer Duo, Womanizer Premium and Satisfyer Pro 2 (and it is my fave)

    Thank you for mak­ing this exhaus­tive (and pos­si­bly exhaust­ing) com­par­i­son review! There are so many pres­sure wave toys on the mar­ket now that it can be over­whelm­ing to try and decide between them. Your post real­ly helps nar­row down the field of options.

  6. Andrew says:

    We have the Lelo Sona 2 cruise and my wife agrees that it’s not so great. Definitely gonna try a dif­fer­ent one from this list and give it anoth­er try. Thanks for the thor­ough list!

  7. Yam says:

    I’ve been eye­ing air pulse toys for a while, thank you for com­par­ing these!

  8. Trix says:

    This is such a com­pre­hen­sive list, a great ser­vice to us!

    I got a cheap Satisfyer a while ago, but I can’t real­ly say it gets a lot of use…

  10. Jess says:

    I tru­ly appre­ci­ate this break­down! I am still in love with my wom­an­iz­er pro 40, but if it ever fails I know the book­marked post I’ll be com­ing back to.

    OK so I tried Satisfyer Curvy 3, because some­one said it was good for begin­ners (translation=it’s a cheap garbage) and it was BEYOND DISAPPOINTING, it sucks, it went straight into trash bin, and I have now lost trust in Satisfyer toys. I hate buzzy vibes and I hate sur­face lev­el FLAPPY suc­tion and the cold air it blows. I hate every­thing about it! I wish these reviews would focus on what’s impor­tant in such a toy, which is NOT strength. Not an app. It’s the kind of vibes it pro­vides. But I was con­fused, I had no idea as first timer, what’s flap­py and what’s “thrum­my” and what’s “rumbly”. There needs to be a bet­ter guide out there to actu­al­ly guide peo­ple and help them avoid cost­ly loss of time effort and mon­ey. I am eye­ing a Baci toy because it’s prici­er and has more tech. I would love a First Timer Toy Guide where every­thing would be more clear and focused on what’s impor­tant to you per­son­al­ly in a toy. Because it’s your review. I don’t care so much for strength of the toy as I will not use past lev­el 3. I don’t care for pat­terns and apps because I won’t use them (the KISS rule!). Why not focus on the TYPES of stim­u­la­tion avail­able, like for instance a toy with bad vibes is UNUSABLE to me. I like vibes that can be described as a musi­cal bass/base, it’s very low and vibrates on anoth­er lev­el than reg­u­lar vibes which can be “strong” but total­ly use­less. I guess that’s what rumbly is? Perhaps there will be a guide with a bet­ter expla­na­tion one day.

    Thank you SO much for such a thor­ough review of these toys. I’ve been con­tem­plat­ing buy­ing one for a long time, but I’m still unsure of what to get. Here’s what I need: (1) Have used strong vibra­tors for years and seem to need that. (2) I have a large clit so the open­ing is real­ly impor­tant. (3) Would LOVE one slim enough to use with part­ner penetration.

    si lo quiero usar sola cual es mas pla­cen­tero wominiz­er o we vibe melt?

    I got my wife the Womanizer Liberty after read­ing this. I was gonna get her the Rose, but the Liberty seemed bet­ter for two per­son pen­e­tra­tion. Which it is not, not for on top. We are both of aver­age build, but it’s just in the way to be com­fort­able. Reverse cow­girl might work, but she’s nev­er liked that. But from behind works great. Really fan­tas­tic actually. 

    Otherwise she loves it, she was skep­ti­cal at first. And not hap­py with spend­ing that much. She’s hat­ed oth­er toys. But this is 0 to 100 in secs. I was wor­ried that it would­n’t be pow­er­ful enough, but she’s only real­ly used the first cou­ple of speeds. She says she could­n’t imag­ine need­ing to be more powerful. 

    What she’s does­n’t like is the but­tons being on the bot­tom. It’s real­ly dif­fi­cult to adjust with­out hav­ing to move it around and break the seal. I was gonna get the Starlet, but being that it has slight­ly less pow­er I went with the Liberty. Now I wish I had.
