Rose Sex Toy Guide: Air Pulses, Colors, Variants, Plugs, and More!

The ele­gant­ly dis­creet Rose sex toy is here to stay. “Roses are a per­va­sive sym­bol of love. That makes it a can­di­date for gifts on Valentine’s Day, anniver­saries, etc.,” I told the writ­ers at Sexual Health mag­a­zine.

Variants of rose sex toys: air pulse massagers of different color roses, brand comparison, and rose butt plugs

Sex toy man­u­fac­tur­ers and retail­ers every­where have want­ed to cap­i­tal­ize on The Rose toy’s hype — releas­ing roman­tic gift box­es, col­or vari­ants, and adding nov­el fea­tures like lick­ing and thrusting.

A blue rose suc­tion toy? I, for one, was quite excit­ed to see that in my influ­encer box from Romantic Depot. What can I say? Their CEO knows my tastes very well — while I had my wild-​type red rose toy, a blue one is rel­a­tive­ly uncom­mon, both in nature and in Toyland.

This post takes a peek at a few dif­fer­ent rose sex toys I’ve tried since sam­pling one of the most well-​known mod­els. Explore the fas­ci­nat­ing flo­ra with me — and find the best rose for you.

Why Do People Love the Rose Sex Toy So Much?

If you’re not already famil­iar with the small but mighty rose, here’s a quick sum­ma­ry of what launched it into virality:

  • It’s pow­er­ful AF — The Rose toy’s 3 steady speeds range from a 9 to a 14 out of 14, match­ing the lux­u­ri­ous Womanizer Premium 2’s top speed set­ting. It lacks sub­tle­ty, for bet­ter or worse.
  • The Rose sex toy is afford­able for every­thing you get — while it can’t match oth­er air pulse toys’ ver­sa­til­i­ty, it eas­i­ly con­jures sig­nif­i­cant sen­sa­tions with­out break­ing the bank.
  • Last but not least, it has room to be both cute and ele­gant, depend­ing on what col­or you get.

How Does the Rose Toy Work?

The rose sex toy's motor push­es a mem­brane inside the hole back and forth. When its noz­zle seals around your cli­toris (or an area on your penis), the air inside this cham­ber rhyth­mi­cal­ly puls­es in pres­sure waves.

It used to be that your main options for air pulse mas­sagers were the Womanizers, which are on the expen­sive side, or the Satisfyers, which are quite gen­tle. The Rose mas­sager filled a mar­ket gap: robust, afford­able, and aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleasing.

As always with clit-​sucking vibra­tors, the Rose works best if your cli­toral glans can fit inside the hole. Most vari­a­tions' open­ings are 13mm by 13mm wide. See my air pulse mas­sager com­par­i­son and decide if The Rose is right for your body.

Why Are There So Many Different Names for the Rose Toy?

You may have noticed that I didn’t men­tion any par­tic­u­lar brand of rose yet. The Rose sex toy is white-​label, mean­ing that no one com­pa­ny owns it. The fac­to­ries that make it are more or less all doing the same thing — then putting dif­fer­ent pack­ag­ing on it for the retail­ers to mark up.

Rose sex toy colors and sizes

If you see the same:

  • Flower petal pat­tern with scal­loped edges on the out­er rim
  • Narrow, cir­cu­lar opening
  • Button engrav­ing with droplet shape and lines for "shad­ing"
  • Magnetic charg­ing con­tacts at the bottom
  • General price range

… it like­ly con­tains the same met­al machin­ery under­neath, pow­er­ing the intense­ly thrum­ming air puls­es. Note that the big­ger rose sex toy in the image above, with the tongue base, has a dif­fer­ent but­ton — a tell­tale sign you're not get­ting quite the same power.

I will dis­cuss some mechan­i­cal vari­a­tions of the rose lat­er, but let’s start with the surface.

Where to Find Viral TikTok Rose Toy Color Variants

For the more sea­soned toy col­lec­tor, col­or the­o­ry goes a long way in giv­ing your toy­box char­ac­ter and personality!

Rose sex toy colors shown: pale pink, red, blue

Red is the pre­dom­i­nant rose sex toy phe­no­type, sym­bol­iz­ing pas­sion­ate devo­tion, inten­si­ty, and car­nal sen­su­al­i­ty. They’re easy to find at my favorite sex shops:

Other rose col­ors have dif­fer­ent cul­tur­al con­no­ta­tions, which can vary by context.

Pink Rose Air Pulse Toy

Pink ros­es, for exam­ple, might car­ry soft­er, more play­ful, and inno­cent under­tones than red ones. They can also be asso­ci­at­ed with emo­tion­al heal­ing, like rose quartz’s uses. Want a pas­tel pink rose mas­sager? Try one of the following:

  • Get speck­led pink and white rose at Spectrum Boutique

Purple Rose Massager

Much like pink ros­es, the light pur­ple rose sex toy vari­ant is also asso­ci­at­ed with del­i­ca­cy but with a touch of mys­ti­cism. Think of enchant­ment, intrigue, seren­i­ty, and chan­nel­ing cre­ativ­i­ty — like witchy pas­tel goth vibes. Or maybe you just like pur­ple a lot!

Get the pale pur­ple rose sex toy at SheVibe or Spectrum Boutique. I’ll also dis­cuss the pur­ple Uberrime Rosae grinder in a lat­er section. 🙂

Speckled Red and White

Red and white ros­es togeth­er don’t quite have a ubiq­ui­tous mean­ing. Maybe it could mean one of the fol­low­ing to you:

  • A com­bi­na­tion of pas­sion and purity
  • The blood of defile­ment and trans­for­ma­tion (wed­ding night role­play, anyone?)
  • The har­mo­nious­ly car­nal and spir­i­tu­al dual­i­ty of humans

Or maybe it’s just not that deep.

Blue and pink rose toy massagers

Other Rose Color Meanings

Here are a few oth­er, less com­mon rose sex toy col­ors and their meanings:

  • Light blue ros­es — the ether, hope, tran­scen­dence, rare and unique beauty
  • Black — mys­tery, ele­gance, mag­ic, resilience, strength, death, rebirth, the unknown

I got my ice-​blue rose toy from Romantic Depot. It’s not on their web­site any­more, though you can find one at Rose Toy Official in blue, black, plum pur­ple, light pink, or red.

(Again, no one shop owns the rose at this point. Rose Toy Official is just the shop name.)

And I’ll talk about anoth­er black rose toy soon — one with the beau­ty but not the brawn of the more well-​known version.

Red rose vibrator variations with tongue

Mechanical Variations of the Rose Clitoral Suction Stimulator

I’ve seen a few vari­a­tions of The Rose toy — some big, some with a flick­ing tongue, some flut­tery — and I’m here to set the record straight about what I hon­est­ly think of them. Here are a few muta­tions of the viral rose sex toy I’ve seen.

To reduce con­fu­sion, I’ll refer to “The” Viral Rose toy as the NS Inya Rose since that was the brand I test­ed first. 

All in all, I appre­ci­ate that there are gen­tler alter­na­tives to the NS Inya Rose. Still, I want my read­ers to be aware that the oth­er vibra­tors are veeeeery dif­fer­ent from the well-​known (read: pow­er­ful) ver­sion of the Rose toy.

Blossom Rose With Licking Tongue on the Base

This ver­sion of the rose, made by Nasstoys, is big­ger and has a flut­tery tongue at the bot­tom. Sensations, both strong and mild, are built-​in and con­trolled by one but­ton and motor.

Red rose massager variations with tongue or without

It has 3 steady speed set­tings and 6 pat­terns. The options range from 5.5 to 8.5 com­pared to the Womanizer Premium 2’s 14 inten­si­ties — putting the Blossom Rose’s high­est at just a tad below The NS Inya Rose’s low­est setting.

NS Novelties’ Inya Rose ranges from 9 to 14 out of 14 on the Womanizer Premium 2’s scale.

The big­ger Blossom Rose lick­ing tongue vibra­tor is sub­stan­tial­ly longer and slight­ly wider than the NS Inya Rose. Nasstoys’ Blossom Rose mea­sures 3.00” long (not includ­ing the tongue) and 2.35” wide, while the Inya Rose is 2.58” long by 2.30” wide.

Another fea­ture to con­sid­er is whether you care about hav­ing a flat base; the Blossom Rose’s round sur­face and tongue aren’t exact­ly made for bal­anc­ing, but some users could (body weight, strength, and mobil­i­ty allow­ing) low­er their hips onto the Inya Rose and mount it.

In short, the Nasstoys’ big­ger Blossom Rose is fine if a light­ly flut­ter­ing tongue is a must-​have for you. Its air puls­es are decent — cer­tain­ly stronger than Satisfyers — but don’t mea­sure up to the small­er, more well-​known mod­el.

Get the Nasstoys Blossom Rose at Peepshow Toys.

ROMP rose massager with extended nozzle in fuchsia with yellow base

Romp Rose and Lovehoney Pleasure Air Stimulator

I’m group­ing three prod­ucts under this head­er because they’re all the same thing from the same par­ent com­pa­ny but with dif­fer­ent col­ors and names:

Consider ROMP and Lovehoney’s ver­sion of the rose the “lite” ver­sion — their high­est inten­si­ty is about 5.5 out of 14 com­pared to the Womanizer Premium 2.

It doesn’t come close to the NS Inya Rose in strength, but you might appre­ci­ate the sub­tle­ty and fin­er incre­ments between speed set­tings. The ROMP and Lovehoney ros­es have 6 steady speeds and 4 pat­terns. One but­ton turns the unit on or off, and the oth­er cycles through the functions.

ROMP and Lovehoney’s ros­es have a nar­row­er, more pro­trud­ing “lip” than the NS Inya Rose, poten­tial­ly mak­ing it eas­i­er to form a seal around the cli­toris to iso­late the air puls­es. It’s also remov­able for eas­i­er clean­ing! The open­ing diam­e­ter is about the same (14 mm) but a tad short­er (11 mm vs. 14 mm), and they both have flat bases.

Tl;dr the ROMP Rose, Lovehoney Mon Ami, and FSOG Black Rose are gen­tler with small­er speed incre­ments than the NS Inya Rose, but the plus sides include eas­i­er clean­ing and quick­er cli­toral latch­ing. We love options!

Rose air pulse massager and rose vibrator with licking tonuge

The Oh Club Rose Gold Licking Vibrator

Okay, now we’re mov­ing a lit­tle away from the air pulse stim­u­la­tor cat­e­go­ry and more towards rose cli­toral vibra­tors in gen­er­al. I got the Rose Gold as part of an influ­encer gift box from The Oh Club. Its tongue licks back and forth, and it’s fine, I guess:

  • 2 motors — one vibrat­ing and one licking
  • 3 steady set­tings and 6 pat­terns on each
  • Independently con­trol each motor
  • The tongue is about 1.1” long by 0.6” wide
  • 2.2” wide by 3.1” long with the tongue or 2.6” with­out it

Its vibra­tions were buzzy, and the top speed can get me off; the only things this lick­ing rose sex toy has going for it are the aes­thet­ic and nov­el­ty. You’ll prob­a­bly rec­og­nize this white-​label design else­where, too.

Bestvibe biting lips oral sex simulator

Bestvibe Biting Lips Vibrator

Yeah, I know. It’s not a rose unless you squint real­ly fuck­ing hard, but if the lick­ing action of the pre­vi­ous rose drew you in, you’ll want to pay atten­tion to this oral sex sim­u­la­tor. The BestVibe bit­ing and lick­ing toy:

  • Has a vibrat­ing tongue
  • Puckers its lips open and closed
  • Has inde­pen­dent con­trols for the buzzy vibra­tions (3 steady speeds and 7 pat­terns) and lip motion (4 steady set­tings and 6 patterns)
  • Is sur­pris­ing­ly sup­ple at the lips. The struc­tur­al scaf­fold­ing doesn’t go very high up, mak­ing it firm but flexible.
  • Feels deli­cious if you have a clit-​vag gap of about an inch; I like how the upper lip feels against my clit while the tongue is in my vagina.

The one down­side is that it does stall if you stick some­thing reeaaaaal­ly deep between the tongue and lips. But you’re prob­a­bly not going to do that with a cli­toris or a nip­ple, right? I was sur­prised at how quick­ly it made me come — if you like tip drilling and have a C‑V gap of about an inch, you might like it, too.

Uberrime Rosae purple pearl silicone clitoral grinding toy et al.

Uberrime Rosae Silicone Clitoral Grinder

So let’s say that motor­ized toys aren’t your thing. You’re all about the squish, the tex­tures, the pillow-​riding, and dry-​humping. And you want some­thing handmade.

Uberrime’s stu­dio has a rose for you, too. The Rosae is made of suu­u­per soft sil­i­cone, with one defined bud at the cen­ter for scis­sor­ing against your cli­toral glans while the petals line up with your… well, petals. Measuring 3” wide by 1.5” deep, it’s ele­vat­ed and cushy, giv­ing plen­ty of resistance.

Sit on it, place it on top of a pil­low to raise it fur­ther, or stick it to the base of a strap-​on dil­do for exter­nal stim­u­la­tion while pen­e­trat­ing a part­ner. There’s a wide range of sen­sa­tions with the Uberrime Rosae grinder, whether press­ing on it doorbell-​style or sway­ing it side-to-side.

Rosy Cheeks Glass Dildo With Rose Base

I just love how light refracts through glass toys, whether you’re dis­play­ing them, set­ting them down, or see­ing inside someone.

This rose glass dil­do from Cherry Poppins, and I’ll always have a soft spot for glass toys. They’re slick, easy to use with minimal-​to-​no lube, body-​safe, and look how frig­gin’ pret­ty the Rosy Cheeks dil­do is with the flo­ral base!

Pink glass dildo with rose-shaped base and textured shaft

Here’s how the C (tex­tured shaft) vari­ant mea­sures up:

  • 6.05” total length
  • 4.45” insertable length
  • 1.35” diam­e­ter bulb
  • 1.00” diam­e­ter shaft

It slips in super eas­i­ly, and the tex­tures ever-​so-​slightly push and pull at my labia and walls. Ideally, I’d want more insertable length to aim right where I want on my cervix.

However, some­one with a low­er ceil­ing or prefers butt stuff would enjoy this dil­do. It’s best for those new to toys but not new to pen­e­tra­tion, and it makes an eye-​catching gift for the aes­thet­i­cal­ly inclined.

Rose Butt Plugs by Oxballs and Love to Love

We’ll start with the pret­ti­er option by Love to Love before dis­cussing a plug essen­tial­ly made for ruin­ing holes. There’s some­thing for every­one here.

Black rose silicone butt plugs

Open Roses Plug by Love to Love

There’s a del­i­cate flair to these flower petals that the oth­er rose sex toys on this list don’t quite have. Five flex­i­ble lay­ers blos­som from the cen­ter, and while they can’t be as com­fort­able as a slim, T‑style stem and base, they can squish a little.

The Open Roses plug tip is tapered, suit­able for warm-​up, though quite firm and pointy, and the one I have ramps up to 1.5” max­i­mum diam­e­ter, then quick­ly ramps back down to 0.6”. The round­ed bulb bot­tom and flex­i­ble, nar­row neck might give the impres­sion that this plug was intend­ed for longer-​term wear, like while you’re out and about.

Anal toys for thrust­ing tend to have less con­trast between the max­i­mum and min­i­mum diam­e­ters. However, the bulky base and pok­ing tip con­flict with that. Don’t get me wrong, though — it’s beautiful.

Open Roses silicone butt plug black rose base by Love to Love

A ser­vic­ing sub­mis­sive would be hap­py to bend over, spread, and dis­play it while get­ting spanked or rubbed. The most fit­ting con­text for the Love to Love Open Roses plug would prob­a­bly be a short­er kink ses­sion, espe­cial­ly paired with a rose ball gag.

Here are the large Love to Love Open Roses plug’s measurements:

  • 4.80” total length
  • 3.75” insertable length
  • 1.50” max­i­mum insertable diameter
  • 2.60” bulb length
  • 0.60” neck diameter
  • 2.75” base diam­e­ter relaxed
  • 2” base diam­e­ter folded

It’s also avail­able in a small (pur­ple) and medi­um (Bordeaux red) size option. See the oth­er sizes’ mea­sure­ments or get the Open Roses plug at Peepshow Toys.

Black rose silicone butt plugs: Oxballs Rosebud plug and Love to Love Open Roses

Oxballs Rosebud Hole Opener Spec-U-Plug

I can’t even bring myself to make a rose­bud joke, but if you’re the kind of per­son to crave the Oxballs Rosebud Hole Opener, you prob­a­bly wouldn’t have mind­ed, anyway.

Personally? I think my eyes were big­ger than my vagi­na — even with the small­er ver­sion of this plug.

See, you squeeze the three tips togeth­er to insert the plug, and it opens up like the Pear of Anguish, hence the nick­name, “spec-​u-​plug.” Yeah, it’ll bend, but it comes up as a Shore 12A; by no means is this plug squishy.

Oxballs Rosebud Hole Opener plug compressed

Here are the Oxballs Rosebud Hole Opener plug’s mea­sure­ments:

  • 4.25” total length
  • 3.75” insertable
  • 3.10” diam­e­ter expanded
  • 2.55” diam­e­ter folded
  • 1.40” diam­e­ter at “stem”
  • 2.75” bulb height

The Oxballs Rosebud Hole Opener is a lit­tle thick­er than a soda can when fold­ed. And I can han­dle that. But I don’t know if I’d use this toy for fun. For those tak­ing on the chal­lenge, I’d say to def­i­nite­ly use a warm-​up toy first. The way the tips splay out isn’t ide­al for back­ing away quick­ly if it gets to be too much.

Once it’s in, it’s prime time to GET REKT. Pair this plug with an intense wand and feel the rose expand­ing and con­tract­ing inside you, push­ing your cli­toral cru­ra apart while the glans is pul­ver­ized from the outside.

Get the Oxballs Rosebud Hole Opener at Peepshow Toys. It comes in two sizes, avail­able in red or black, and the one I have is the small­er one.
