About The Satisfyer Penguin

The vibrator that looks like a penguin wearing a tuxedo you didn't know you needed! The Satisfyer Penguin is a clitoral suction toy designed to look like a little penguin with a pink bow tie. It uses a suction nozzle and rapid air pulses to deliver "touchless" clitoral stimulation for a more intense orgasm with none of the temporary numbness that can sometimes result from using buzzy vibrators. It is USB rechargeable and fully waterproof, should you wish to use it in the bath or shower.

My Experience With Satisfyer Penguin

My Personal Experiences with Satisfyer Penguin

Clitoral suction toys were an aquired taste for me. The first time I tested one, I admit that I wondered what all the fuss was about. Why was everyone raving about these things? But I’m glad I persevered through the initial challenges, because now I frequently reach for this type of toy.

Finding the Right Position

On my first go around, the problem I encountered with the Penguin was that the stimulation was so intense it was almost painful. If this is your experience, I recommend experimenting with different positioning to see if you can find a way of using it that’s comfortable for you. My usual position for masturbating is on my back with my legs spread. However, after a little trial and error, I discovered that suction toys actually work best for me with my legs much closer together than normal. I think it’s something to do with the positioning of the clitoral hood, which protects the sensitive glans clitoris from being overstimulated. I prefer to use the Penguin from above, focusing on my clitoral hood, or sometimes from the left side.

Getting to Orgasm

It takes me a while to orgasm with suction-based toys such as the Penguin. Some people have reported that these toys get them off in record time, but this is not my experience. But I don’t mind the slow burn style of play, because the eventual orgasm is always impressively explosive! Clitoral suction toys are often sold as an equivalent to oral sex from a partner. I can sort of see the comparison, in that the pressure waves caress your clit in a way that is a little like a lover’s tongue. But ultimately, the Satisfyer Penguin doesn’t feel very much like cunnilingus to me. It’s a wonderful sensation and I love using it, but it’s a very different thing. I’m honestly not sure the sensation of oral sex is possible to entirely replicate with a toy. The sensation of the Satisfyer Penguin can be gentle or intense, depending on positioning and the setting you use. With vibrators, I often begin on the highest setting and stay there. With suction toys, I prefer to start with the gentle teasing, flickering sensations at the lower end and then slowly move up through the speeds.


The Satisfyer Penguin is a genuinely excellent toy for its price point. It’s solidly made of body-safe materials and most importantly, it delivers reliable and satisfying orgasms every time. A winner that won’t break the bank!  


Satisfyer Penguin Design

The Satisfyer Penguin is super cute, non-threatening in appearance, and it's not pink (which always wins points from me.) The shape of its body is ergonomic and comfortable to hold, even for someone with small hands like me. Interestingly, the silicone of its nozzle is noticeably thinner than many other suction toys I've tried. This isn't really a pro or a con, just an observation. It's small in size and very light, making it comfortable to use and easy to take with you when you're travelling or off on a hot date.

Ease of Use

Satisfyer Penguin Ease of Use

Suction-based sex toys do take some practice. The Satisfyer Penguin is one of the easier products to use when you get to grips with it, however. The buttons are well-placed and easy to press, and the toy easy to hold and manipulate. With 11 levels of intensity and simple +/- buttons, the controls are easy and intuitive. I've always found it very difficult to successfully use a suction toy with a partner. The placing is just too precise to easily get right on another person's body. Be prepared for a steep learning curve or keep this one for your solo play.


Satisfyer Penguin Quality

I have no complaints in the quality department. The Satisfyer Penguin is sturdy and well-made, and mine has happily lasted several years at this point. Satisfyer toys come with a 15 year manufacturer's warranty, so you know the company really stands behind the quality of its products.


Satisfyer Penguin Price

Satisfyer first rose to prominence as a cheaper alternative to the much-lauded Womanizer toys. If you want to try a suction-based toy but aren't ready to drop $100 or more on a product, the Satisfyer Penguin is a great entry point that doesn't compromise on quality. The Satisfyer Penguin retails for $59.95.


Satisfyer Penguin Performance

This fun, playful toy gets things done. Its 11 impressive levels of power offer something for even the most power-hungry clitoris, and it delivers a wonderful slow-burn orgasm every single time I use it. Run-time wise, I get about 90 minutes of use out of a full charge. The Penguin sounds quite loud when you first switch it on, but the sound is considerably dampened once the nozzle is against your body. Useful if discretion is important to you!


Satisfyer Penguin Packaging

The Satisfyer Penguin came packaged in a simple white box with an image of the toy on the outside, and some printed information and instructions. Inside, you will find the charging cable and an instruction booklet along with the toy. The packaging is simple but sufficient and is recyclable.

Materials and care

Satisfyer Penguin Materials and care

The Satisfyer Penguin is coated all over in body-safe, super soft silicone. This durable material is hygienic, non-porous, easy to clean, and will last many years with a little care. Since the Penguin is waterproof, you can clean it with gentle soap and warm water. The nozzle is also removable and can be boiled to ensure it is fully sterilized.

Special feature

Satisfyer Penguin Special feature

The Penguin’s special feature has to be its adorable design. I don’t know who decided to make it look like a penguin or why, but I’m glad it exists because it makes me smile every time I look at it. Many beginners feel anxious purchasing their first sex toys and I feel like this toy is made more accessible due to its sheer cuteness factor.

Who is the Satisfyer Penguin for?
Anyone with a clitoris! Some people also report that it can feel great on nipples. If you're a beginner, pressure wave toys like the Satisfyer Penguin can take some getting used to, but they're worth taking the time to practice with them and find out what works for you. If you have a larger clit, you might want to consider a different suction toy with a wider nozzle.
What type of lubricant should I use with the Satisfyer Penguin?
A gentle, water-based lubricant is best. Sliquid H20 is my favourite, but Lovehoney Enjoy is also a great option. You can use oil-based lubes if you like, but be aware they take more cleaning up. Avoid silicone lube with silicone toys as it can damage them.
How do I store my Satisfyer Penguin?
Keep it in your nightstand or a drawer. On its own is fine, or you might prefer to store it in a small bag to keep dust and lint off your toy. The myth about not storing silicone toys together is just that - a myth. It's fine to store your Satisfyer Penguin with any other silicone products.
Can I use the Penguin with other toys?
Yes - using it with a dildo or anal toy can provide intense sensations and even blended orgasms! Try holding the Penguin on your clitoris while your partner penetrates you with a dildo. Another option is to insert a toy such as a butt plug or a set of anal beads, and leave them in while you play with the Penguin. And, of course, you can always use it for clitoral stimulation during penetrative sex with a partner if you want to.
