What's The Difference Between a Clit Sucker and a Vibrator

In recent decades, there have been groundbreaking innovations in the field of clitoral and vaginal sex toys. You have dildos, traditional vibrators, rabbit-ear vibrators, bullet vibrators, and now, you also have clitoral suckers.

Clit suckers are widely being hailed as the best kinds of sex toys for instant orgasms.

A clit suction sex toy is a new kind of sex toy that uses air pressure to create a suction force against the clitoris, providing full-bodied clitoral orgasms. Clit suckers are widely being hailed as the best kinds of sex toys for instant orgasms.

However, lots of vulva-owners are confused about how exactly they differ from vibrators. And that’s what we discuss in this article — the difference between a clit sucker and a vibrator.

How Do Clit Suckers Work?

Clit suckers are small sex toys with a nozzle at the end, usually made with high grade silicone. These devices generate air pressure and deploy powerful sonic pulses that reverberate through the entire clitoral structure. They provide indirect clitoral stimulation, which means you have to hold them a little removed from your sweet spot. They deploy powerful sonic pulses that enter your body through the clitoris, shaking you from the inside to induce instant full-bodied orgasms.

How Do Vibrators Work?

Vibrators are sex toys that vibrate, as the name clearly suggests. They provide direct stimulation instead of indirect stimulation, i.e., you have to hold the vibrators against your genitalia to stimulate them and induce orgasms. However, there are several different types of vibrators that target different parts of your anatomy — bullet vibrators, classic vibrators, and rabbit-ear vibrators.

  • Bullet Vibrators: These are extremely small bullet-shaped vibrators, perfect as a travel companion. These are generally used for pinpoint clitoral stimulation. You move them around your clitoris, the part of your body with the greatest concentration of nerve endings.
  • Classic Vibrators: These are large dildo-like sex toys with a massive shaft. These vibrators are used for vaginal stimulation instead of clitoral stimulation. The larger size makes them suitable for vaginal penetration and stimulation. As such, classic vibrators simulate penetrative sex.
  • Rabbit-Ear Vibrators: These are a combination of both bullet-style and classic vibrators. These vibrators have a massive shaft with two “bunny ears.” As the large penis-shaped shaft enters the vagina, the bunny ears tickle and stimulate the clitoris. As such, rabbit-ear vibrators simulate penetrative sex while also providing clitoral stimulation.

How Do Clit Suckers and Vibrators Feel?

The easiest comparison for a clit sucker’s sensation is oral sex. They use air pressure and suction force, which feels a lot like good oral sex. However, that comparison isn’t totally adequate because clit suckers also produce sonic pulses that shake your entire clitoral structure — something no other pleasure product or sexual partner can do.

The clitoris can be compared to an iceberg. It’s a large structure, but we can only see the little clitoral tip rising above the water's surface. All sex toys and sexual partners stimulate the little tip, producing a pleasant tingling sensation. However, clit suckers deploy sonic pulses that vibrate the entire clitoral structure, making them far more powerful.

Vibrators, in comparison, only provide direct clitoral stimulation or penetration. You can either use them to simulate penetrative sex, vaginal stimulation, or clitoral stimulation. However, their clitoral stimulation pales in comparison to clit suckers because they only activate the clitoral tip — leaving the rest of the clitoral structure untouched and passive.

Describing the sensation of a vibrator is easy. Depending on the type of vibrator, it either feels like traditional penetrative sex or like clitoral orgasms. However, describing the sensation of clit suckers is a lot harder — they’re the only types of sex toys capable of triggering the entire clitoral structure, so they’ve tapped into a new kind of sensation that most vulva-owners have never experienced.

Vulva-owners often compare the sensation of clit suckers to standing in front of massive loudspeakers and woofers in parties. When you stand in front of loud woofers, the sonic waves seem to flow through your body, shaking you front the inside — you can feel the sonic waves inside your body. Clitoral suckers do something similar — the sonic pulses shake your entire clitoral structure, inducing instant orgasms that are more powerful, more effective, and quicker than anything you’ve experienced.

Can a Clit Stimulator Vibrate?

Most clit suction toys only provide the suction feeling, so they don’t vibrate. However, some of the new generations of advanced clit suckers have started combining traditional vibrations and suction.

For example, Biird’s Obii is a new clitoral suction vibrator with features for traditional vibration and suction. The suction feature produces sonic pulses for complete clitoral stimulation, as described earlier. The vibration feature turns the toy into a traditional bullet-styled clitoral vibrator — facilitating direct stimulation.

As such, if you don’t want to choose between direct and indirect clitoral stimulation, get a clitoral suction vibrator. Depending on what you want at that moment, you can use either suction or vibrations. You can also alternate between them to find the perfect rhythm for a powerful orgasm.

Tip: Don’t Choose One or The Other… Use Clit Suckers and Vibrators/Dildos Simultaneously!

All types of sex toys have their unique advantages — bullet vibrators are great at direct clitoral stimulation, classic vibrators and dildos are great at vaginal penetration, and clit suckers are brilliant at indirect clitoral stimulation. So, why choose between one or the other?

Use clit suckers and vibrators/ dildos simultaneously! While you stimulate your clitoris with a clit sucker’s powerful sonic pulses, you can also use a classic vibrator or dildo for vaginal penetration. Doing so will allow you to simultaneously unlock all the pleasures your body is capable of!

The most important thing is to experiment and learn what your body loves best. Try different combinations of different sex toys until you find a pattern or rhythm that you can ride to a blissful climax!
