Clitoral Stimulators

A 2017 study in the journal Sex and Marital Therapy revealed only 18% of womxn can orgasm from direct penetration alone; the rest of us (all 72% of us) need clitoral stimulation to orgasm. Read all the clitoral stimulator hype down below

What's the hype about Clitoral Stimulators?

Clitoral stimulators are one of the latest and greatest innovations in the sex toy industry. I often get questions from womxn asking how they know which one to buy, asking what the difference is between them and if clit stimulators are as A-Ma-Zing as the word-on-the-streets says. On the last point yip, I totally assure you that they are, so definitely keep on reading.

The original suction-type toy is from the brand, Womanizer which is founded on the belief that all womxn have the right to orgasm and a study they conducted revealed that 80% of womxn orgasmed in 3 minutes or less – ooh la la, bring it on!

What makes CLIT STIMULATORS different?

While vibrators send vibrations through the clitoris to stimulate and delight: clitoral stimulators mimic oral sex and have a gentle push and pull of air over the clit.

It is referred to as touchless stimulation and it never overstimulates the clitoris, like vibrations esp buzzy ones can.


Choosing the right clitoral stimulator for you comes down to how you intend to use the stimulator.

Are you someone who loves features? If so, Womanizer Premium is beyond amazing with 12 intensities. Smart Silence technology ensures that when the stimulation head isn’t in contact with your skin it is perfectly quiet and an autopilot that gives you a fresh and unpredictable experience every time.

The Womanizer Duo Dual Stimulator is ideal if you enjoy penetration with your clitoral stimulation. The internal arm can be independently controlled from the clit stimulation giving you complete customisation. The internal arm is flexible to fit you comfortably and to massage your G-spot like a dream.

If you travel a lot and want a product that doesn’t look like a sex toy (for airport security) then the Womanizer Liberty is a great choice – it will also be a fab choice for you if you want to trial the sensation as it only has 6 intensities.

Womanizer Starlet 2 is the entry-level version of Pleasure Air Technology and there is lots of vooma within the 4 levels. It is comfy to hold, comes with a single stimulation head, is 100% waterproof and unlike the others has no travel lock.


Personally, I find the Womanizer range an amazing sensation, for me, I find it is more for solo pleasure or mutual masturbation as there isn’t enough space, on my body, to position the head over my clitoral hood and have penetration simultaneously.

For a couple’s experience or for penetration with a clit stimulator I highly recommend We-Vibe Melt. It was designed with exactly that in mind and it boasts 12 intensities of Pleasure Air Technology which can be controlled by a lover anywhere in the world through the We-Connect app.


Oh wait, yes these two weren’t mentioned above. Why? Because the sensation is not really the same and the technology is different but it’s close enough to share a broad category.

So what makes it different to the others? While the others in the category deliver waves of air to take you to an orgasmic high. In contrast, the Lelo Sona 2’s use sensonic technology that sends sonic waves through the full structure of the clit.

How exactly is this different – well it means that you aren’t placing the nozzle of the Lelo Sona 2’s over the clitoral hood and you can place the nozzle anywhere on your clit to enjoy the pleasure. The sonic waves are sent through the clit and reverberate back – it is absolutely sublime.

How to choose between the Lelo Sona 2 and the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise. The big distinguisher between the two is that the one has cruise control technology, a patented technology, to ensure you never lose the strength of the waves if you push the product into yourself – a nifty feature.

Is noise a big issue for you?

On the whole, I find clit stimulators a bit noisier than my favourite, whisper-quiet vibrators. To be fair though, once the clit stimulator is in place and the seal is created then it definitely is quieter and more muffled. The Lelo Sona 2 & Sona 2 Cruise are a bit noisier still.

The Womanizer Premium and Womanizer Duo both have smart silence technology so when they aren’t in contact with your body they are silent so if noise is an issue for you then they are both great options.

I hope this has helped – do let me know if you have any further questions as I would love to connect you with the amazing pleasure of a clit stimulator.
