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.
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.
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!
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:
- Get the red rose at SheVibe, Peepshow Toys, Spectrum Boutique, or Romantic Depot
- Red rose gift box — get it at SheVibe
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 the solid pale pink rose at Cherry Poppins or SheVibe
- Mine was sent to me by Chery Poppins. Use code CY-20 for 20% off your first order.
- Get it with the heart-shaped gift box at SheVibe
- 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!
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.
Get the red and white swirled rose toy gift box at SheVibe.
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
(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.
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.
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.
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 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:
- ROMP Rose — limited edition fuchsia with a yellow base
- Lovehoney Rose — standard romantic red
- Fifty Shades of Grey Black Rose
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!
Where to get them:
- ROMP Rose — SheVibe, Spectrum Boutique, Lovehoney
- Lovehoney Rose and Fifty Shades of Grey Black Rose
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.
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.
Get the biting lips vibrator from Bestvibe.
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!
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.
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.
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 the Zalo & Upko 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.
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.
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.
