Suction Cup DildosLike the rabbit vibrator, suction cup dildos are (for me) a great idea in theory but terrible in execution. I’m no spring chicken anymore and I have the knees of a person twice my age. I can’t deny though that plenty of people love these things. One reason why I have trouble with suction cup dildos is the lack of a compatible surface. The surface has to be completely flat and perfectly smooth, no imperfections that would break the suction seal. Bathroom tiles can sometimes work, but they need to be at least 1/2″ bigger than the base on each side to have a chance at working. Mirrors and windows work, of course. Painted walls though, normally do not. Before you get it in your head that the suction cup is for you, make sure you have a surface that’ll work with it. I see a lot of people buying the porous / possibly-toxic versions way, way too often so I’m providing a list of all known safe versions. There’s a surprisingly larger selection than I expected! As of my most recent January 2016 update, I’ve counted literally 101 silicone suction dildos (and plugs and vibrating dildos). This also doesn’t begin to take into consideration the smaller, fantasy dildo makers like Bad Dragon etc. I haven’t included any of those because I don’t own any, don’t review them, haven’t really seen them much in person.

Suction Cup Dildos Under $50

Early2Bed carries a few that I’m not yet seeing in many places. Max, Fairy, and Astral. Max is realistic-looking but small while Fairy and Astral (Maia brand) are completely non-realistic. It looks like SheVibe is now carrying a bit of the Maia brand, and using the manufacturer’s naming they carry the Maia Porpora D1 in hot pink and purple and the D3 (lightly ribbed) in Blue or Purple.  For a moderately sized (7″x 1.6″ for the D1, 1.75″ for the D3) silicone dildo, the price ($30) is quite decent. I want to note that the only products I recommend from Maia at this time are these dildos. They have a core that is another, non-silicone material (presumably to lower production costs) which you should never see and should not at all affect the safety of the silicone material on the outside (and it is silicone, and quite thick at that). I’ve also been told that the Maia silicone is very firm and has texture to it, making it a bit of a lube hog. Also at Early to Bed is this Rippler Love Rider dildo.

New-ish from CalExotics is their Packer Gear line. I don’t know anything about it other than the fact that it’s silicone. I don’t know if there’s another material at the core, but the prices are great. These are apparently, from the product line info, meant for packing. They’re flexible! They’re also all under $35. ETA: I have received one to check out and the silicone feels nice and smooth, without any grabby texture to it. The silicone is relatively firm but it still has bend. I don’t see how one would pack with this, but whatever. It’s still a very nice dildo.

Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Elite line has a number of silicone dildos & silicone vibrating dildos with suction cup bases but you know they’re not a company I trust. The price is pretty low for the dildos but I’m just in general unconvinced of their overall quality. I’ve not flame-tested anything from them; until I can get my hands on one to flame test and dissect, I’m reluctant to really recommend them but there they are. There’s such a big line that I can’t really ignore them, and they do offer the vibrating aspect which isn’t common for this list.  I’ve never received any reports that they are not silicone, but they are “hollow” with a foam core. The silicone covering the foam core is thick and I can’t see it really becoming a problem.  Silicone is strong and I can’t see it ripping or anything. But, it is false advertising on Pipedream’s part, reporting these as “100%” medical grade silicone. I don’t believe it to be medical grade; why would they cut costs by adding the foam core and then use a more expensive grade of silicone? It’s probably food-grade which is no less pure or safe. Regardless, that’s a bit of false advertising that is slimy, but not surprising to me given Pipedream’s basic reputation. Pipedream isn’t a company I can see supporting at all, but the choice is yours so I’ll list the option.

Blush, who makes a lot of crappy vibes and realistic cocks (and is in general not a company I fully support right now) has a dual-density pure silicone line out that is vaguely realistic. Every model (except for the ones now with balls as the base) in their Real Nude line at Shevibe has a suction cup. Prices range from $39 to $56 so they’re priced lower than Vixen Vixskin and Tantus. The Real Nudes seem to come in some non-realistic colors now but I’m waiting on retailers I work with to pick them up, otherwise there are limited realistic skin tone choices. The silicone on the older models is very shiny and attracts lint like crazy; I’ve been told that the squishy portion (all of the head and a layer along the shaft) is softer like Vixskin, but the core is very firm, like Tantus. However, photos have shown the Sumo (supposedly 2″ diameter) easily able to bend in half. I know that my larger Tantus O2 dildo can’t do that. Early To Bed carries a red version of one of the designs! Also from Blush the new Luxe Mio is short and very fat, 1.8″ and reasonably priced. The new Nude Impressions line are under-$60 suction-cup vibrators in 4 non-realistic colors – half of them are priced at $49.

Doc Johnson’s Vac-u-Lock line was always baffling to me – they require a special harness (none of which look all that awesome to me) and they were all always porous/toxic materials. But in recent years Doc Johnson came out with some silicone vac-u-lock options. These can be used by themselves as a dildo, but I noticed that Shevibe carries a Vac-u-lock suction cup accessory, directly copying Tantus. Since I’ve never owned a vac-u-lock toy I don’t know if the Tantus accessory could be used here instead, but the DJ version is only $10.  This means you can get a realistic, suction-cup silicone dildo for right around $50.

 The Colours line, from NS Novelties, has a variety of sizes of suction cup dildos in a bunch of colors.  The overall styling is realistic, but the most of the colors aren’t (there are pale skin tones but also pink, blue, purple, etc).  Sizes range from 1.5″ wide to 2.1″ wide, and only the 8″x2.1″ is priced over $50. I’ve been told that this brand is very firm and combining that with the veiny texture has been uncomfortable for some people especially when used anally.

 Available only from Lovehoney: LH-branded has a 7″ purple smooth dildo and a 5″ slender black smooth dildo. There’s a realistic one from Adrien Lastic (?) and they carry only one Malesation dildo but the Malesation dildo they carry is a direct knock-off of Maia and the two companies are not related. If you value company ethics, I’d avoid Malesation. But if the Maia Wavy D1 looked fun but you hated the pink and purple, pick up the Malesation Wavy in black. There’s now two vibrating, realistic silicone suction cup vibrating dildos at Lovehoney, and one of them is under $50. At $69 this one has a remote!

You can find all of these at Lovehoney UK also.

BUTT TOYS! Not to be left out, there are a few silicone butt plugs with a suction cup base: Cocolicious from CalEx (might have a foam or bead core, like Pipedream); Colt brand Jumbo (over 2″!) plug, and Marc Dorcel’s Ultimate Plug which also vibrates (but not much).

High-quality Dildos from Reputable Companies

Of course with Tantus, there’s the silicone suction cup attachment, which works with their vibrating dildos.

Fun Factory, usually known for the vibrators, have a few dildos. Amor, maybe the Boss (unconfirmed), Bandito and Tiger all claim to have suction-cup bases. The Amor and Boss are subtly realistic while the Bandito and Tiger are not at all plus are heavily textured. New to the line-up is the Bouncer, also with a suction-cup base.

Smitten Kitten carries CJ Hooker, a somewhat realistically-styled dildo from Hole Punch that comes in vivid color blends.  It’s got an interesting taper to it, but is 1.75″ at the widest.

Happy Valley vibrating dildos (Perk, Hottie and Little Hottie) might work with the Tantus suction cup attachment. When I contacted them, they responded with:

All of our dildos are designed with ergonomics and harness compatibility in mind. As the bases are shaped to conform to the natural curves of the body, this does not readily lend itself to suction cup styles. Whilst the Tantus attachment would definitely fit into the vibe hole for both Fuze and Happy Valley toys, I doubt that it would either be comfortable or function to its full potential, due to the different design criteria of ourselves and Tantus.

Vixen dildos sometimes have a naturally occurring suction cup base. I contacted Vixen to get the complete current line-up:

Vixskin: Tex, Raquel, Randy, Maverick (rumors have it that the Mustangs can be suction-cuppy, but Vixen didn’t list it)

Original Formula: All with the exception of vibe versions, or anything with testicles (Johnny). i.e. All of the Realistic Bents, Randy, Leo, Mistress, and Woody.

Filed under “but how would that even stay on the wall” is the ginormous Tom of Finland Kake Cock. Tom of Finland also makes a few sizes of a standard butt plug with a suction cup base.

  • I haven’t tried most of these, but I can definitely speak to the effectiveness of the Vixen Tex’s suction cup! I didn’t even realize it was there until my partner pointed it out to me, but it’s suction-y enough that I can use it on a high-gloss wall with half-decent results.

    Accent walls, you guys. Always paint ’em glossy.

  • C

    My Vixskin Mustang has some effective suction going on, to add to the list. Definately needs a smooth surface to work though.

  • I’m a bit reluctant to add it to the list; I asked Vixen directly and if it’s not one they listed, they can’t say for certain it’ll have a suction-cup-y base. Why, I don’t know.

  • Ah, okay. I don’t know anything about these brands. I’ve read a LOT of bad things about BD’s customer service, so I’m kinda reluctant to even recommend them to those who do want that type of dildo.

  • Glossy, huh. Interesting. I’ve never had a wall painted glossy, so in my experiences walls never worked out. Good to know!

  • I believe that BD has been working to improve their customer service. A lot of the issue was them taking SO LONG to fill orders even longer than like 4-6 weeks even on pre-made toys. I heard a few other things, but I haven’t dealt with them in awhile now, so I can’t speak for them. My issue with BD is that they raised prices on their items that I already felt were expensive and shipping even in the US is INSANE. Anyhow, Exotic-Erotics is amazing. I seriously love them. The suction cups are awesome. They hold up really well and the silicone is really awesome. I’ve never once ordered a toy that I had to wait more than 2 weeks on and that was completely customized. The staff is very friendly, well, Justin is who I speak with and I’ve always enjoyed communication with him. Shipping is a reasonable price ($6.15 in US) and you can find completely custom toys starting at $30ish (depends on what you order).

  • I follow afew people on Tumblr who have been talking about and documenting problems…not just with customer service, but their forums. Problems with custom orders arriving with a defect, and BD not wanting to take care of it.

    Regardless, I don’t like representational dildos, either human or animal, so BD and the other company are just two that I simply won’t be trying out, for personal reasons.

    My Vixskin Mustang has a totally flat base (vs the suction cup one on my Maverick) but has suction that is about as good. I don’t use them but I hang them on the shower wall to dry and in my experience it’s been quite impressive for something that’s not technically a suction cup.

  • Bex

    I have the NY Toy Collective Shilo and it has some accidental suction due to the shape of the base but it falls as soon as you touch it so it wouldn’t be any good for actual use.

  • New kid on the block – Blush Novelties Real Nude line. All with suction cups, all silicone, all dual density and less expensive than other dual density dildos.

  • Amanda

    Would you say you trust The Colours line from NS Novelties?

  • I have not heard anything bad about them. Someone else did say it is definitely silicone.

  • CallistaR

    I just got a Colours Small, and it was amazing!! (placed order for the Large immediately XD ). It was nice and firm enough to make riding easy, but had enough give to make it comfy. The material is very high-grade and easy to clean, but lint, lint everywhere :'( Wiping it down with a bath towel resulted in fibres all over it; I ended up just sucking it to something and letting it air-dry.

    Lilly, do you know any strong, rumbly vibrating dildos shaped like/similar to the Colours dildos? Something about the shape just does it for me when the vaunted Jopen Key Comet II left me wanting. Thanks!!

  • Not really, no. For some reason the realistic shaped soft silicone VIBRATOR is not popular in silicone….just the crappy materials. Only one I know of is Fun Factory’s Big Boss: http://www.shevibe.com/fun-factory-big-boss-g4-vibrator.aspx#oid=1011_1

  • CallistaR

    Huh. I would think that more people would be interested, considering how well regular realistic dildos sell.

    I just ordered the Big Boss, and I cannot wait to try it with my Tango! XD

    Thank you so much!

  • CallistaR

    Just wanted to tell you that the Big Boss is amazing! Thank you so much for the rec <3

  • I have a Fun Factory Tiger bought in 2012, and while I’ve seen photos of older models with a thicker base that incorporated a suction cup, mine is completely smooth and flat. The information currently on the Fun Factory website seems to reflect this change.

    If it’s helpful to any of your readers, the suction cup on the VixSkin version of the Randy failed pretty quickly for me. I stored it in its tube as suggested, but the base significantly deformed in the way that dual-density dildos often do, rendering the suction cup completely unusable. I’ve had no such problems with my Maverick though, as that base is much thicker.

    Hi, Lilly I’m a first timer here and I’m newly to idea of a dildo I’ve always wanted to be penetrated with a penis shape item which do you recommend best I want one so realistic and that has a suction cup thanks again!!
