In 2015, a new toy rocked the clitoris-owning world: one that vaguely resembled some sort of thermometer to pulse air against the clit. Some users described the sensation as akin to cunnilingus, others said it was the first thing to ever give them an orgasm. That toy was the original Womanizer. In addition to being ugly as fuck, the Womanizer had several downfalls. Other companies started developing their own versions of these air pulse toys, with the most popular coming from the brand ‘Satisfyer.’ Not only was the toy produced by this company (blessedly) gender neutral, it was also waterproof and easier to clean. In the last five years, the sex toy market has seen an increase in toys of this type, with countless options for air pulse tech, and prices have become significantly more accessible. But can they actually make me cum? Let’s find out with the Satisfyer Pro 2!
HOW THIS TOY WORKS
At the time of publishing this article, Satisfyer’s website listed ten toys in the category “Air Pulse Technology.” The Satisfyer Pro 2 consists of a bronze-colored hard plastic that is 6.5” long and 1.8” wide. Two metal dots on the bottom connect to the magnetic charger. The back features two silicone buttons (a small circular power button and an oval button with subtle ‘+’ and ‘-’ on either end) and the front has a silicone oval head meant to be placed over the clit or other sensitive body part.
Press the power button once to turn the toy on: the button will light up with barely any sound to indicate the toy is on. The Satisfyer Pro 2 starts at its lowest setting but has 11 levels of ‘intensity.’ At any time, holding down the power button will turn the toy off & return it to the lowest setting. According to the manual, 90 minutes of charge gives 90 minutes of use (though its initial charge may require up to 8 hours).
HOW I USE THIS TOY
I’ve used air pressure tech toys before and didn’t hate them. For me, the Satisfyer Pro 2 actually worked less than the bougie Womanizer I’ve used in the past. Sure, I can get off with The Satisfyer Pro 2, but it takes a lot longer and requires more focus. The first time I used this toy, I got bored and switched to my tried-n-true method of humping, which worked but was pretty meh. I had a similar problem with this toy as I had with the last air pressure toy I tried– the sensation went from “okay, I guess? I barely feel this” to “this feels actually pretty good, let’s ramp it up!” to “oh no oh no this feels like post orgasm torture and I (a) didn’t ask for that and (b) haven’t even cum yet!!!”
I also tested the Satisfyer Pro 2 in the bath, since the Satisfyer touts its waterproof feature and interestingly enough, I have found myself horny during tub time lately. The intensity of the toy remained about the same in water, which meant I still couldn’t get off. However, if I didn’t create a clitoral seal with the Satisfyer Pro 2 and instead held it about a centimeter away from my clit underwater, it pulsated the water kind of like a hot tub jet. But like, I’ve gotten off with hot tub jets and shower heads before, but those things are not designed to give me orgasms!
My orgasms of late tend to be utilitarian. I want to quickly satisfy an itch and (usually) go to bed immediately. Even when I tried this toy while fantasizing about how my current partner gives me head, I kept losing focus because the sensations were too varied. It took so long I eventually gave up and got out of the tub, opting to test a different toy instead.
Your mileage may vary. My experience is mine, and there are a lot of folks who like air pressure tech. The Satisfyer Pro 2 is $50 at Early to Bed, SheVibe, or $71 CAD at Come As You Are1sometimes is better than USD prices! which isn’t that much of an investment. Since it’s waterproof, you can sanitize it (see below) and pass it along if it doesn’t float your boat.
LUBE & CLEANING
Since the head of this toy is silicone, which can bond with silicone based lube, I recommend a water based lube so you don’t risk ruining your toy.
The Satisfyer Pro 2 is waterproof, which means you can wash it with soap and water and rinse it off. If you’d like to sanitize the toy, you can do so by using a 10% bleach solution (and then rinse it off).
