Satisfyer Sweet Treat, Yummy Sunshine, and Charming Smile Vibrator Mini-Reviews
If you’re looking for affordable and body-safe sex toys, you can’t ignore Satisfyer vibes! They’re cheap, they’re cute, and they come in a range of colors, from pale lilac to a buttercream yellow (fittingly named Yummy Sunshine). The latest addition to their line is an ice cream-themed rotating stimulator with silicone “flaps” to sweep over the clitoris, penis, nipples, or other external hot spots.
My first thought upon seeing the Satisfyer Sweet Treat was, “Oh my gosh, it’s adorable,” and my second was, “It’s probably going to be terrible, but I have to have it.” Cue flashback to the Emojibator Chickie, a.k.a. “The Butt Chicken” suction vibrator. I’ve only ever written negative (full-length) reviews of Satisfyer products in the past, and it’s been about a year since. But the miniature ice cream cone was what finally motivated me to break my silence.
I dislike Satisfyer as a company, if you couldn’t tell. They started with the eponymous pressure wave devices— their cheaper renditions of the Womanizers — and hackish attempts at “innovation.” Over the years, they’ve expanded to include (decent and affordable) butt stuff and vibrators of varying quality.

Satisfyer’s theft of Fun Factory vibrator designs
Bearing in mind Satisfyer’s shady history, I was disappointed but not surprised when they copied Fun Factory’s vibrator shapes. Consider the following analogous pairs:
- Fun Factory Volta vs. Satisfyer Flower Power
- Fun Factory Lady Bi vs. Satisfyer Mr. Rabbit
- Fun Factory Big Boss vs. Satisfyer Master XXL
- Fun Factory Patchy Paul vs. Satisfyer Petting Hippo
- Fun Factory Tiger vs. Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine

They’re not exact knock-offs. Consider, for example, that the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine‘s texture is far more subdued than the Tiger, and the Flower Power has three petals, unlike the Volta’s two flaps. Satisfyer’s vibrators also have a smoother matte finish, while Fun Factory’s is grainier with a bit more drag. This difference is less pronounced with lube, of course.
Still, the similarities in handle design and shaft shapes are striking; it doesn’t sit right with me. However, when Satisfyer vibes are about a third of Fun Factory’s prices, I understand. I wouldn’t judge anyone for choosing the cheaper option.
Satisfyer vs. Fun Factory vibration quality
Satisfyer’s vibrators pretty much come down to “you get what you pay for.” They cannot compare to the quality of the Fun Factory insertables’ G5 motors, which are rumblier and quieter. That doesn’t mean that Satisfyer Vibes are bad or even buzzy per se. And with six steady speeds, six patterns, and three buttons, the quality-to-price ratio is nothing to scoff at. It’s just that their motors are generic with less voom.
You’ll still get the fluttery action with the Satisfyer Flower Power, but with a more prickly “zing” and a smaller range of motion than the Fun Factory Volta. Fun Factory’s vibrators, in contrast, have a signature deep purr that I find more conducive to multiple orgasms.
Satisfyer Vibes Yummy Sunshine long G-spot and A-spot vibrator
Regular readers of my blog will be 0% surprised that I am enamored by the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine‘s 8.75″ length (6″ insertable) and forward-tilting tip. It’s a stellar combination for sliding behind and massaging my cervix with fast but short, smooth thrusts.
I can’t stop. Thrust, thrust, come. Thrust, thrust, come. It’s not a quickie kind of toy for me (though it can be) — I much prefer setting aside ample time to come on it over and over again. The ridges on the shaft mostly disappear in use, but that’s fine. It’s that length and curve that I crave.
Likewise, though it’s no Uberrime Night King or Tantus Tsunami, the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine has enough length and flexibility that I can target pressure against my G-spot, even without an especially bent or defined head. Only the last 4 inches is bendy, while the rest of the shaft and handle have a rigid core. I could see it being helpful for those with big bodies who need toys with extra shaft for aiming.
It’s also worth noting that the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine vibrator has a non-committal bump, ostensibly for clitoral stimulation where the vibrations are concentrated. I have an average clit-vag gap of 1 inch, so my clit does indirectly absorb some of the buzz. However, those who want more clitoral pressure or friction should look into getting a separate toy for external stimulation. Alternatively, the bump can serve as a stopper when inserting the Yummy Sunshine anally.
Overall, for the price tag, the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine is a versatile option for clitoral stimulation, cervix massage, and G-spot exploration. I would have been thrilled to try something like the Yummy Sunshine as a first sex toy.
Satisfyer Vibes Charming Smile G-spot vibrator
The Satisfyer Charming Smile‘s color also caught my eye. It’s a pale lilac, more feminine than the Yummy Sunshine, but a welcome break from pink and sad purple. It features a relatively slight 4.25″ insertable portion, which is still long enough for my G-spot. The sharp head allows for some pinpoint pressure, not unlike the Lumberjill Grace‘s shape, though slender in comparison.
Unfortunately, this vibrator doesn’t neatly tessellate with my G-spot, and (unfortunately) tends to dig in a little bit past where I’d like. There’s some flexibility to the silicone, so getting off with it internally is doable, but I find the Satisfyer Charming Smile stubborn and difficult to aim. It might work better if it was longer— like I said, nobody should be surprised that I enjoyed the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine more.
It’s also worth noting that the Satisfyer Charming Smile‘s G-spotting shape is available in a rabbit vibrator form. The Mr. Rabbit comes in a darker (lackluster) purple and has a flexible clitoral stimulation arm. For my taste, it’s too bendy to do diddly squat for my clit. I’d much prefer sticking to my We-Vibe Nova rabbit vibe or use a separate external toy, like the Hot Octopuss Digit.
Satisfyer Sweet Treat rotating “licking” clitoral stimulator
The Satisfyer Sweet Treat doesn’t vibrate— instead, it’s like a rotating fan with 16 super, super soft silicone flaps to tickle your external erogenous zones. There are 7 settings: 4 steady speeds and 3 variations of back-and-forth direction switching. Its adorable presentation reminds me of the Lovehoney Sqweel Go but unfortunately doesn’t measure up.
Both the Satisfyer Sweet Treat and Sqweel Go stimulate by rotating, but the Sweet Treat is sooooo much softer and less powerful. It doesn’t feel bad. It can get me off, but it doesn’t feel like much of anything, really, and is too bendy to be memorable. The Satisfyer Sweet Treat’s movement initially looks impressive, but as soon as you apply pressure, it stalls.
It’s a shame because the shape of the flaps had potential. The tip of the “ice cream” could have rotated around my clit, and the rounded edges could have fanned it side-to-side.
But no. While the Satisfyer Sweet Treat is adorable as a gag gift and feels pleasant, it’s pathetic for the price tag. At least the Sqweel Go adds something to my sensory smorgasbord, and for not much more in cost.
Wrapping it up: my verdict on Satisfyer Vibes & Sweet Treats
Satisfyer’s insertable vibrators are a treat for the eyes, but they have Fun Factory’s designers to thank for that. I dislike Satisfyer as a company but have nothing against the consumers who are shopping for body-safe sex toys on a budget, whether it’s for beginner butt stuff, pressure wave devices, or phallic classics. I understand— If I wasn’t a reviewer, I might consider buying a Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine as an everyday basic.
For now, though, my advice is to stay away from Satisfyer’s attempts at creativity. That advice applies across the board to Satisfyer products I’ve reviewed in the past: the Satisfyer Pro 4 Couples, the Satisfyer Multifun, and now, the Satisfyer Sweet Treat. It’s no surprise that a company built on cheap knock-offs struggles to make anything stellar or substantial on its own.
