You may have heard the big news: Satisfyer have just released an upgrade to their infamous Pro 2 clit sucker! But, is it actually better than its predecessor, and is it worth making the switch? Let’s compare the Satisfyer Pro 2 Generation 3 vs the Pro 2 Next Generation (now called the Generation 2)!
I’ve tried both, had a lot of fun in the process, and now I’ve made an in-depth comparison of new vs old.
I’ll take you through:
- How each toy performed in Bedbible’s reviews
- The biggest and best changes to the Pro 2 Generation 3
- The essential stats of both toys, including what has stayed the same
- And, my personal thoughts on this new and exciting upgrade (+ what I wish they’d improved)
How Both Toys Performed in Bedbible Tests
The original Pro 2 Next Gen may just be the best-loved cheap sex toy in the world, but how did it stack up against the Pro 2 Gen 3 in our comprehensive Bedbible testing process?
Full disclosure, while I did write the Bedbible review of the new Pro 2, the older review was written by fellow Bedbible reviewer Isabelle. She’s a big clitoral suction stimulator fan, and I own both toys as well, so you’ll get both of our perspectives in this comparison.
Let’s take a look at the ratings…
|Satisfyer Pro 2 Generation 3||Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation (AKA Generation 2)|
|Bedbible Tester Rating||4.9||4.4|
|Average User Rating||4.8||4.6|
|Ease of Use /100||90||95|
|Price (on Satisfyer.com)||$49.95 ($59.95 with app controls)||$39.95|
What are the Biggest Changes to the Satisfyer Pro 2 Generation 3 vs Pro 2 Next Gen?
While they may look very similar, the Pro 2 Gen 3 is a significant upgrade to the old version in several ways!
It Vibrates Now!
Satisfyer have added vibrations to a few other toys in their Pro range, like the Pro 3+ (I know, the names get confusing), but now we can have them in the classic Pro 2 form!
The vibrations in the Satisfyer Pro 2 Gen 3 can be turned on alongside the usual Air Pulse suction modes, or used on their own for a more subtle effect.
There are 12 different vibration modes to choose from — 5 steady speeds and 7 patterns. They are definitely on the buzzy side, especially at higher speeds, but I found them to be a nice accompaniment to the lower suction levels.
You Get an Extra Head with ~Liquid Air Technology~
This is my absolute favorite bit of the new Satisfyer Pro 2 Generation 3!
Along with the original removable silicone head, you also get a second head with a thin membrane over the mouth. It feels super soft and velvety, and flutters against your clit when you turn on the suction.
Satisfyer call it ‘Liquid Air Technology’ because it’s supposed to feel like water gently pulsing against your skin. I’m not sure I agree with that assessment, but I do think that, when you use enough lube, it actually feels similar to oral sex! In fact, it’s much more like oral than the original clit sucking head.
The best part is when the silicone has absorbed some of your body heat and you can close your eyes and imagine a tongue down there, doing exactly what you want it to do.
The Whole Body is Silicone
I think Satisfyer have done us a great service by ditching the cheap-feeling ABS plastic body of the old Pro 2 for a silky soft, silicone-covered one.
It’s totally seamless on the sides and around the buttons, making this the easiest Pro 2 yet to clean and dry.
It just feels more like a luxurious sex toy and less like a weird medical device!
You Can Control It via App
Okay, I’ll preface this by saying that you can only connect the Pro 2 Generation 3 to your phone if you buy the app-enabled ‘Connect’ version.
I know that people have been asking for app controls on the Satisfyer Pro 2 for a long time, and now we’ve got it!
By simply downloading the Satisfyer Connect app and holding the power button on your Pro 2 Gen 3, you can access a whole new level of interactivity with your toy.
In the app, you can control and customize the levels of the suction and vibrations (together or separately), use a 30-second turbo boost mode, make your own suction and vibration patterns or explore tons of pre-made ones, link up with a partner and have them control the toy, sync the suction and vibes to music or ambient sounds, and even play erotic audiobooks!
It Costs a Bit More
Since the original was so cheap compared to its many competitors on the market, it’s inevitable that a big part of the comparison between the Satisfyer Pro 2 Generation 3 vs the Pro 2 Next Generation will come down to price.
Luckily, there’s not a lot in it! Prices will vary depending on where you look, but the new Pro 2 Generation 3 is selling in most places in the range of $50-$80. In those same places, the old Pro 2 is selling for around $40-$70.
So, for an extra $10 or so, you could access all of the new features of the latest Satisfyer offering!
Plus, there are two versions of the Satisfyer Pro 2 Generation 3 available: one ‘normal’ and one ‘Connect’ version that you can use with the app. The ‘Connect’ version is $10 more, so you should factor that in if you really love the sound of the app controls.

More New Changes to the Satisfyer Pro 2 Generation 3
As well as the big, flashy changes I mentioned earlier, there are also several smaller upgrades that Satisfyer have made:
- The new Generation 3 has a much longer battery life than the older version, though it does also take a bit longer to charge.
- While the new Pro 2 doesn’t have an actual travel lock function, it is a bit more difficult to turn on accidentally. You actually need to hold down the power button to turn it on, while the old one turns on when you click the button.
- Satisfyer have released the Generation in 3 colors right off the bat, which I love (it took a few years before we got multiple colors in the old version!). You can find it in a wine red, pastel purple or black, while the Pro 2 Next Generation is available in the classic rose gold, pastel purple or light blue.
But What Has Stayed the Same?
As you can see in the comparison table above, there are also some features that Satisfyer hasn’t made any changes to in this Pro 2 upgrade. These include:
- Both versions have the same shape and size. The removable heads are also the same shape and size, so, if you have an older Pro 2 Next Generation, you could attach the new heads to that toy if you wanted.
- Both have the same number of suction modes. These also have the same intensity levels, so it seems like Satisfyer didn’t do a lot of work improving their famous Air Pulse Technology motor this time around.
- Both toys are completely waterproof and submersible, so you can use them in the bath or shower without worry. You can also clean them with water and a mild soap.
- You can use the same charging cable for both toys, since they use the same magnetic charging points.
- And finally, the new Pro 2 Gen 3 still does not come with its own storage pouch. This is likely to save money, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying!
My Thoughts on the Pro 2 Generation 3 vs the Pro 2 Next Generation
Although I didn’t write the official Bedbible review of the Pro 2 Next Generation, I do own both toys. In fact, the old Pro 2 was one of the first sex toys that I purchased!
I was really taken by the amazing experiences that other reviewers seemed to have had. I vividly remember one woman saying that she used it in the bath and that she had her first squirting experience and multiple orgasms! Others said it felt just like oral sex, and I was totally sold on the idea.
However, I struggled to use the old Pro 2. I have a very sensitive clitoris that spends its time hidden under the hood and couldn’t deal with being directly exposed to the pulses of the clit sucker. It got used for a little bit, but was then quickly replaced by the ultra-rumbly bullet vibrator that is the We-Vibe Tango X.
So, when I saw the new Pro 2 Generation 3 and its Liquid Air Technology, I was really intrigued but didn’t expect a lot. How crazy then, that I completely fell in love with it!
Having the two different heads is a total game-changer. I use the Liquid Air one most often, but I also enjoy having a low and slow build-up with it before changing to the normal clit sucker head for an explosive orgasm.
The extra vibrations also add another layer of stimulation which is a great way to switch up your usual masturbation habits. They’re a bit buzzy for my tastes, but when you pair them with the suction there’s a good amount of deep, satisfying rumble.
What Else Do I Wish They’d Improved?
Of course, even in the best sex toys, there’s always room for improvement! While I do really love the new Pro 2, and I think it’s a major improvement on its predecessor, there are still a few sticking points for me.
First off, I think they could have spent more time working on the vibrating motor. Other Satisfyer Air Pulse vibrators actually have fairly rumbly vibes, like the Satisfyer Curvy 2+, so it’s a shame they didn’t use that technology in the new Pro 2.
Another great addition would’ve been to offer a selection of different sized heads. Other clit sucker brands, like Womanizer, quite often offer a range of different sized mouths, whether they come with the toy or are available to buy separately. While I enjoy the larger mouth on the Pro 2 series, every vulva is different and I’ve read many reviews saying that it’s too large for them.
And finally, I’m speaking directly to Satisfyer when I say — give us a storage pouch, I’m begging you.
