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 Personal Experiences

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.

Verdict

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!

Conclusion

The Satisfyer Product is a well-designed toy that has earned its place on the nightstands and in the hearts of thousands of users. Whether you want to try clitoral suction for the first time or are looking for something a bit different, it's a worthy addition to your collection that I wholeheartedly endorse.

How to use Satisfyer Penguin

I recommend getting familiar with the Satisfyer Penguin's controls before you try to use it. Get used to the buttons and how the different speeds sound and feel. Next, experiment with different ways of placing it against your clit to see what feels best. Some people like direct contact, while others find that using the toy over the hood or even against the side of the clit works best. There's no right or wrong way! Add a little water-based lube to the nozzle for maximum comfort and pleasure. After that, start at the lower speeds and gradually ramp up until you find the setting that works for you.

Lube up!

Pressure wave toys can be intense. One way to guarantee more comfort and pleasure is to use plenty of lube. I recommend applying it generously to your clitoris and surrounding area, and also adding some to the nozzle of the toy before you begin.

Make sure you're in a comfortable position and, ideally, in a warm cosy space where you won't be disturbed. Try softening the lighting to set the mood if you like!

You might find that lower speeds work for you, or that you need a bit more of an intense buzz. There's no right way to play, so see what feels good for you and don't be afraid to experiment.
Turn yourself on
Try watching some porn or reading some erotica to turn yourself on and get yourself wet and ready to play. You could also talk dirty with a partner, either in person, by text, or over the phone, if you're into that.

FAQ

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.
