I know I have a weird life. I like it that way and really, what is normal? But my life seems especially weird, surreal even, when people get in touch with me because of this blog. I like this blog, I’ve not been so active on here as of late, but this blog is my heart. And I get emails every so often from friends and readers. Once in a while sex toy companies want to know if I want free stuff! (Once in a while= twice—but whatever, who’s keeping score?)
My first thought when someone sends me an email offering me free stuff is that it’s a scam. I mean, really, who expects to be given anything for free? But after a little research and some deciphering I decided that the people at Satisfyer were not out to steal my identity (I mean, Casey McKay is a pen name, so really, you chose poorly to begin with). Anyway, they legitimately just wanted to send me three of their products so that I could review them.
It’s not a bad gig.
Except when they didn’t leave the package at my door because it needed a signature and I was afraid I was going to have to go down to the pick up place and have to convince them that I was indeed Casey McKay. I was home when they came the second time so all was okay.
They sent me three versions of their Satisfyer: the Satisfyer Pro, the Satisfyer 2, and the Satisfyer Penguin. To be honest I’ve never seen a sex toy like this before. Anything I have ever tried was a vibrator or a bullet or some combination of both. If I’m being completely frank (and when am I not) any toy that requires vaginal penetration isn’t really my bag. I get that a lot of women like that, but that isn’t what gets me going and even the vibrators I have I don’t use that way. I usually just end up using it like you would a bullet and give my clit all the attention. To say I was intrigued with these toys that focused all of their attention on this area would be an understatement.
At first glance, they made me a little nervous. I thought there might be some sort of suction or something, but no need to be alarmed, they aren’t built to do anything like that. I unpacked them from their boxes and got them charging. The Satisfyer 2 takes two triple A batteries, but the Pro and the Penguin are rechargeable. I like that capability. It sucks to have to rob the TV remote of its batteries when the ones in my vibrator die. It’s very handy that these come with their own usb chargers, I can swap out my phone and charge up the toy. Already winning me over with convenience.
Next up, actually giving them a whirl. I felt a little out of my element. How do I go about this? Do I need to line this thing up exactly with my clit? Should I be using a mirror? The pressure! Clearly, I was overthinking things. I pushed the little button and then placed the Penguin version (the smallest and least assuming) in the general area. Nothing was happening. I didn’t know what I was doing wrong. I moved it a few times and thought maybe it was me. But then—oh! Wait, don’t move. Right there. Oh, shit. Yeah, that’s the spot.
The website describes it as contact-free pleasure, but I don’t really think that’s the way to describe it. Female toys are either built to penetrate (like real life) or you have some rounded, vibrating thing. The Satisfyer sort of envelopes you. The best comparison I can make is someone going down on you. The reason why I don’t think it’s contact-free is because your clit is resting inside. It’s definitely touching, it feels like every nerve is being pulsed.
I tried all three of them but didn’t notice any discernable difference besides maybe size/portability. All of them are waterproof and one seemed just as powerful as the next. I used them alone first and then we tried one out together. Sometimes you aren’t that adventurous when you’re using it yourself and you almost lull yourself to sleep. And then sometimes your partner takes it from zero to sixty in two seconds and you almost launch yourself off the bed. Okay, zero to 11, because they have 11 settings.
The bottom line is, I really like this toy and they have moved into my regular rotation. I like that someone finally figured out a way to treat a clitoris. If you’re looking for something a little different, you won’t be disappointed!
