Well now! The Satisfyer Pro 2 is one of maybe a dozen products I’ve needed – no, not wanted needed – on sight. It’s lovely to look at, and it promises big things, but that wasn’t what made me long to review one. No, what grabbed my attention, was the price.
From what I’d read about it, it seemed to be based on the same premise as the Womanizer products; simulated ‘suction’ caused by outward pulses of air. Except the Satisfyer Pro 2 is around 40% cheaper than the original Womanizer W100, and 50% cheaper than the W500 Pro model.
With that in mind, I was itching to discover whether or not that difference in price meant that the Satisfyer Pro 2 was either cheaply cobbled together trash, or if the functions were weak imitations of the more expensive brand. I wanted to be able to compare it with both models of Womanizer, because I’m aware that their hefty price tags are impossible for some to meet, and I wanted to be able to say to those people, “Get this one instead, it’s just as good, if not better.”
Well, after a few emails, I soon had a Satisfyer Pro 2 in my hands! Read on to find out whether or not I’m recommending it…
On the box:
The packaging the Satisfyer comes in is no nonsense, informative, and quite pretty. There are no ‘O’ faces or greasy bods in sight, so it doesn’t look like the 70’s barfed it up, nor does it look like cheap and nasty pound shop fodder. I like to see thought go into packaging, because it gives me hope that, if the designers have put effort into small details like the box most people are gonna bin, there’s a good chance that they’ve put a good effort into the parts peeps are gonna keep.
In the box:
In a disposable plastic carton you’ll find your Satisfyer Pro 2 unit with 1 head, already attached, the usb charging cable, and an instruction booklet.
My first impressions of the unit itself (just looking at it) were very positive. Even though the entire body is made from a bronze coloured hard plastic, it doesn’t look at all cheap or flimsy. Once it was in my hand, I could feel the quality of the build in the weight of it. Most of that weight seems to be concentrated in the handle, which gives the business end a lighter touch.
The Satisfyer Pro 2 is approximately 6.6 inches in length, with a girth of 5.75 inches at the base, and 7 inches around the head. The handle is nicely contoured, offering a thumb rest on the front (the part that goes against the body) with two silicone control buttons situated within the reach of the fingertips on the back. Said thumb rest is high up the handle enough that my thumb doesn’t have to be between my labia, and that means no interference between the silicone head and my clit.
I was a bit horrified when I saw that the charger connects to the toy magnetically right at the base, as I despise this type of charger as a rule, but this is possibly the strongest magnetic connection I’ve seen in a toy thus far. I can’t pick the thing up and swing it over my head on the strength of that connection, but it does take a lot of shoving to get it to disconnect accidentally.
Charging takes around 2.5 hours from flat, and you get 30 minutes play out of a full charge, but the booklet recommends that you don’t use the product in the same spot for any longer than 15 minutes. That doesn’t seem like much at all, but when you see how quick the results are, you’ll realise that it isn’t really an issue.
So, all charged up and ready to go. The smaller of the two white silicone buttons is the on/off switch, and giving it a quick click brings the Satsifyer Pro 2 to life. The oval button above the LED light controls the intensities, of which there are 11. Yes, 11, and even the lowest of them makes my clitoris sit up and think, what the fuck is that?! It’s mega powerful from the off, and that surprised both me and my poor clit.
The difference between lowest and highest settings is very noticeable, but the incremental increases aren’t really noticeable in my opinion. The noise it makes barely changes until the higher settings are reached, and the sensations feel less sucky and more like an aggressive, clit shattering rumble.
Just skimming a ring of lube around the opening on the head and holding it against my clit on the first setting is enough to get me wanting to wriggle, but I fight myself and remain still. By the time I’ve clicked to the third or fourth intensity, I’m cumming, and it’s not a shallow, unsatisfying climax. Every orgasm I’ve had from this toy has been strong, and the Fella loves to watch the contractions while I moan away in orgasmic bliss.
The downside to that is that the sensations I get from the Satisfyer Pro 2 are so intense, I can’t carry on and have multiple orgasms like I can with the Womanizers. My clit ends up far too sensitive, and any further stimulation becomes painful.
For those reading this and thinking, fuck that, my clit would have a coronary if I dared use this thing, listen up! The Satisfyer Pro 2 has a feature that the Womanizer’s don’t: IT’S WATERPROOF! Not splash proof, but full on waterproof. You can take it in the bath with you, and that’s why people who are scared of it shouldn’t be.
Once it’s submerged, the water acts as a buffer for the uber powerful sensations, and it becomes a lot gentler on the clit. The product jargon suggests that the opposite is actually the case, and water supposedly intensifies it, but I didn’t find that to be true at all. For me, there was less of a suction feeling going on, and more of an all-encompassing vibration. It agitated the water, and that tickled my vulva, vaginal opening, and thighs, which led to a great orgasm.
I’m not actually a huge fan of masturbating in the bath though, as I find the limited space a hindrance, but for those who do consider themselves water babies, I can see this being a much used bath mate.
As is always the way though, there are a couple of things that irritate me about this toy. Even though it covers my clit perfectly, the silicone head is a lot bulkier than those of the Womanizers, and that’s not something I love. It is lovely and smooth, with a soft touch quality to it, but it’s very firm, and it does dig in a bit when smothered by my labia. I also don’t love how much of a pain in the arse it is to get the head settled back in place once it’s been taken off for cleaning, nor do I like that there’s only one head included with the unit.
I can see this product getting a lot of use from those who own them, and as the head doesn’t like to go back on 100% perfectly after first wash, it’ll likely need replacing sooner rather than later, so at least one more in the pack would have been appreciated.
Finally, I would have been very happy to have found a storage pouch in the box, but I didn’t. The packaging isn’t suitable for long term use, so I’m gonna have to buy one separately to ensure my toy doesn’t get scratched and battered. For £70, I’d have expected it to at least have a satin bag.
So, when it comes to recommendations, which side of the fence do I sit on? Team Satisfyer, or Team Womanizer?
Personally, I prefer to use the W500, because the stimulation I get from that can be as gentle as a lovers kiss, or as aggressive as the top speed of the Satisfyer, depending on what I want. But if it came down to recommending a product to a friend, I wouldn’t hesitate to say, get a Satisfyer Pro 2! It’s well made, very powerful, yet tameable by water, and in my opinion, is worth every penny of its reasonable price. If you’d like to try one, you can get one at Lovehoney.
