I was offered two models of the Satisfyer Pro 2 to test. The “original” model was actually the second release of the Satisfyer Pro 2, but since the very first model is now obsolete, I’ll be referring to it as the Original. It was supplied by the manufacturer. I was also sent the Satifyer Pro 2 Next Generation by Peepshow Toys. There are a couple of key differences, and some interesting similarities.
If you’ll recall, the last Satisfyer I reviewed had problems, but I mostly liked the Penguin. My problems with the Penguin are echoed here with the Original, and all but solved by the Next Generation.
Both Satisfyer Pro 2 models, like the Penguin and Satisfyer 2, are “suckling” or “pressure wave” toys. The exterior of the toys appear very similar. The opening you put against your genitals is a big, cushy silicone ring, much more pronounced than both the Penguin and the Satisfyer 2. The opening of the Next Generation is larger than the Original. The body of each toy is body-safe hard plastic in a rose gold tone. Both toys can be cleaned in soapy water with a good rinse and allowed to air dry, but note you may want to use a cotton swab to make sure the inner chamber is dry. Don’t use your finger, or you could damage the membrane that makes it work.
Both are supposedly waterproof, but there have been some concerns about this around the sex toy reviewer blogosphere. When I reviewed the Satisfyer 2, their base (and least expensive) model, the membrane that controls the suckling motion tore, making the toy no longer functional or waterproof. I dunked both Satisfyer Pro 2’s in water and both survived. I will say both Satisfyer Pro 2 models seem much more well-constructed than the other Satisfyer products I own.
The biggest difference between the two toys is the Next Generation model has + and – speed controls, whereas the Satisfyer Pro 2 Original only offers one button that increases speed. This profoundly changes how I feel about each of them.
Another difference is the ease in pressing the on/off button. On the Original, it’s very easy to press, although you have to hold it down for 2 seconds (which I hate). On the Satifyer Pro 2 Next Generation, the button still needs to be held down for 2 seconds, but it’s perplexingly hard to press.
Both models have a 12-month warranty, but you won’t find this information in the manual. The manual just states to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have problems with it.
The sensation of both toys is thuddy and pinpoint. If you like direct clitoral stimulation, you’ll love these. If you don’t like that, definitely pass these up in favor of a vibrator that can be used off to the side, or just provides more gentle stimulation in the first place. These are not for those that need broad stimulation.
My biggest gripe with the Satisfyer Pro 2 Original is the speed control button. There’s only one, and it only goes in one direction. Much like the Penguin, this was its downfall. In addition, pressing and holding the power button to turn it off was an awful design choice. Once I have an orgasm, I’m very sensitive, and like minimal stimulation, but a little bit of pressure, as my orgasm ends. With vibrators that have a “press and hold to end this torture” button, I can relieve the pressure gradually as I’m turning it off. With the Satisfyer Pro 2 Original, breaking the seal means all stimulation stops immediately, leaving my orgasm feeling stunted. Yet, it hurts to hold it against myself past the peak of the orgasm.
The Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation solves this problem with the addition of + and – controls, so I can turn it down as my orgasm peaks, which is so much more comfortable. I’m annoyed that the power button is harder to press, but it’s much less of an issue and not a deal-breaker for me since I can turn it down all the way to the first, barely perceptible speed.
The Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation is much quieter than the Original. The speeds seem to be gentler, too. On the Original, I think I’d like the 2nd speed for the majority of my arousal process if it weren’t for the fact that it’s sputtery and clunky. This was a major let-down. Speed 3 is much more smooth and brings me to orgasm pretty reliably on the Original. Most of the higher end speeds are way too intense for me, and that’s true for both toys. Higher speeds feel like intense, thuddy, pinpoint vibration. The Next Generation seems to start at a more gentle pace, and it’s Speed 3 that is my happy place. It’s slightly clunky, but barely noticeable. It isn’t as distracting. Speeds 4 and 5 on the Next Generation bring me to orgasm consistently.
While I can orgasm easily with these toys, your mileage may vary. I’ve heard some folks say it takes them an unusually long time to orgasm with these toys, if at all. Luckily, Satisfyer is at a lower price point than the Womanizer toys, so you might want to start with the Satisfyer 2 to see if it’s stimulation you like, but know it’s a much lower quality toy than the Pro 2’s.
For all their faults (allegedly copying from Womanizer, not notifying users of the warranty in the manual, using shoddier materials), I think Satisfyer has done something right with the Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation. I’m going to assume it will take the place of the Original, and think it should. Prices have already started to drop for it, and it’s been removed from some of my affiliate partners already. In my opinion, there’s no reason to have a button that only increases functions and a power button that takes seconds to stop the stimulation.
If you know you like thuddy, strong, pinpoint clitoral stimulation, the Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation is a solid option. It’s the clear winner here.
