Review: Maia Destiny, Elegance Dreamy, Twitch Innovation suction vibe review
"A new kind" of sex toy, or just hype?
The Her Ultimate Pleasure's all-in-one licking and sucking contraption became a viral sensation — and other makers wanted to capitalize on the trend. Fluttery and flickery vibrators are growing in variety. Clitoral suction toys are poised to move from the fetish realm to the mainstream.
I don't think many sex toy fanatics would say, "NO, I DON'T want to try more sensations beyond conventional vibration AT ALL." Even the saltiest of us would at least be curious.
That's why I've grouped three such toys in this review. All of them feature "tongue" flickering or suction:
I'll be upfront about where the Destiny, Dreamy, and Twitch rank in my collection, though:
They don't come close to the Fun Factory Volta's flutter OR the NU Sensuelle Trintii XLR8's all-around intensity for me. However, not everyone wants the absolute strongest sensations, so let's talk about the quality-to-cost ratio, too.

Maia Toys Destiny 3-in-1 clitoral suction fluttering vibrator
The Maia Destiny is notably the most affordable ($54.99), despite its bells and whistles galore. This thing offers true one-way suction, along with vibrations in the handle and the flap inside the nozzle.
What's not to love about the Maia Destiny?
Immediately upon turning it on, my hopes turned into a dejected, "Oh…" The vibration in the head barely transfers to the "tongue" at all. I only know it's powered on when I hear the high-pitched whining and feel something.
It's not much — good luck discerning the motor's location by feel alone. There are vibrations somewhere in the Maia Destiny's top half, but beyond that, they get lost. There's not much hope for the Maia Toys Destiny's remaining flutter to transfer to my clitoris, let alone do anything for me.
What's to like about the Maia Destiny?
Meanwhile, the handle's vibrations are fine, I guess — nothing terrible and nothing amazing across its 3 steady speeds and (UGH!) 12 patterns. It's just a 4 out of 10 on my (subjective) intensity scale. I do appreciate the defined edge on the Maia Destiny's mushroom-like flare, though. It focuses the vibration for pinpoint sensation, while the rounded end diffuses them a little if that's what you prefer.
I personally wouldn't insert the tip, though, because the big dip in diameter would easily snag on my pubic bone and be hard to (comfortably) remove.
The Maia Destiny's only saving grace is how strong the suction is for the price. Rather than back-and-forth air pulses, it pulls air in one direction for bona fide sucking and latching.
There are 15 settings to choose from on this motor:
- 1–3 are continuous suction of different intensities.
- 5, 6, and 12 are simple patterns — not 100% steady, but still consistent enough to enjoy and climax!
- Everything else (4, 7–11, 13–15) involves lots of up-and-down that does nothing for me.
Maia Destiny vs. NU Sensuelle Trinitii XLR8
What I'd ultimately recommend for intense clitoral suction
Don't let the Maia Destiny's unconventional facade and bold colors fool you; its sensations feel barely beyond beige. Maybe get it if you'd prefer your stimulation on the gentler side.

While the Destiny's not terrible, I'm sticking to my NU Sensuelle Trinitii XLR8's vrooooom.
Why pick the NU Sensuelle Trinitii XLR8 over the Maia Destiny?
- The Trinitii's handle vibrations are rumblier and stronger (capable of splashing when dipped in water!)
- Its back-and-forth tongue flicking is super pinpoint and can handle more pressure.
- And it sucks in a good way, too.
In short, the NU Sensuelle Trinitii's design isn't for outlandish shock factor — it's actually just the thing for those wanting to go into overwhelmingly-AAAAAH-"forced orgasm" territory.
Elegance Dreamy clitoral flickering vibrator by Shots
Shots' Elegance Dreamy is the simplest toy on this list, with an intuitive handle, a broad lip nozzle, and a flicking tongue.
I can already sense people on Instagram commenting, "Just get a LELO Sona or Womanizer" upon seeing this thing. But I want to be clear: the Elegance Dreamy is not a suction or pressure wave stimulator.
Its raised opening is there to help with positioning — to let the "tongue" hover over your hot spots and flutter back-and-forth. While the flap can't press too hard, it's nice and rumbly through my clitoral hood — making it easy to come on!
The only major downside is that it can get loud if it's not pressed up against flesh.
The one-button control is also simple for cycling through the settings. Fortunately, the options aren't excessive, as with the Maia Destiny. There are 6 functions that I can discern on mine, and instead of cycling 1–2‑3–4‑5–6 and back to 1, it goes 1–2‑3–4‑5–6‑5–4‑3–2‑1. I can appreciate how easy it is to adjust the intensity and go back down without having to click a gazillion times.
Shots Elegance Dreamy vs. other fluttering vibrators
I wouldn't drop $70 on the Elegance Dreamy, but I can definitely see why others would.
It's nowhere near the Fun Factory Volta's intensity or adaptability — you can't splay the Elegance Dreamy's tip to envelope a penis head or distribute broad vibrations.
Twitch Innovation clitoral fluttering and tickling vibrator
The Twitch Innovation by Shots had the fanciest presentation upfront, with its sturdy terrarium-like display box. Its packaging is about what I'd expect from Shots (basically the dudebros of Europe's adult novelty industry), but what about the actual toy?
Of the three clitoral "licking" vibrators in this review, I find the Twitch Innovation the most intense.
Like the Dreamy, the Twitch's silicone bristles and flaps need only the slightest grazing to drive me wild. The vibrations behind it rumble the little ticklers, the two "tongues," and the "lip."
If I want to play with both independently-controlled motors, the suction nozzle also needs to latch on and form a seal. I'm not sure I'd agree with Twitch Innovation's marketing, saying it's a hands-free clitoral suction toy; positioning is finicky for me. To its credit, though, its swooping exterior easily fits in my palm.
Once it's set up in the right place, wooooahhh.
I was skeptical about the bristles at first, worrying that they'd irritate me — my clit usually doesn't like direct touch. However, the filaments have rounded tips and are juuust the right softness. The suction intensifies that, and the combination makes me insta-come without feeling abrasive.
Shots' Twitch Innovation is one of the few wham-bam all-in-one suction toys that I… actually like? And it's not too gimmicky for me. While the rumbly vibrations transfer well through the silicone, the Twitch Innovation is best for users who like (relatively) big, fast movements with a light touch.
