Like 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 2018 update, there are a lot. SheVibe’s updated website lists 115 silicone, suction-cup dildos with prices ranging from $21 to $125, which doesn’t include the butt toys or vibrators. This also doesn’t begin to take into consideration the smaller, fantasy dildo makers. 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. Wanna know about those? Go see Lunabelle.
Affordable Silicone Suction Cup Dildos Under $50
When I first made this post in 2014 the list overall was a little slender and there were fewer options under $50. Nowadays we not only have options under $50, but I count 37 options for $29.99 or less at SheVibe. And many of these under $50 are actually really well made – affordable no longer means being limited to ultra-firm single density or silicone shells stuffed with foam/rags/etc.
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 (updated to Riley) in hot pink and purple and the D3 (updated to Kendall) 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 glow-in-the-dark blue dildo that is actually the NS Novelties Firefly in Silicone.
New-ish from CalExotics is their Packer Gear line. There is a foam core, but you’ll never see it and it won’t affect the dildo. 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 nice dildo – not my favorite, but you may like it and I don’t see anything wrong with the foam core.
Blush Novelties continues to expand their options for affordable silicone dildos. Every model (except for one) 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 soft outer layer is delightfully squishy and the core is very firm, but they can bend in half. 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. Also included in the link above for Real Nude line is a line of single-density affordable, brightly colored silicone dildos. In Late 2017 Blush introduced the Avant line – vague shapes colored in block sections like striped socks, and the silicone is matte and dust-resistant. The Blush line may be listed in the “budget” section here but their dual density options and the Avant line are gorgeous, well made, and feel great. I fully recommend them.
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 Cloud 9 brand has a wide range of realistic silicone suction cup dildos in a few sizes and a few flesh tones. I’ve flame-tested another Cloud 9 item and at least the items listed at SheVibe as silicone are definitely silicone. Their prices range from $21 to $25!!
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/rough texture has been uncomfortable for some people especially when used anally. Yes, this is the brand with the rainbow dildo.
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, the gorgeous Funkit Cashew, two different styles from CalExotics, and some Tom of Finland girthy plugs.
Vibrating Suction Cup Dildos
The Blush Nude Impressions line are under-$60 suction-cup vibrators in 3 non-realistic colors – most of them are priced at $49. I loved the blue one, and have been told that they’re working on revamping this line – adding more colors and a magnetic charger – with the revamps arriving late 2018.
CalExotics Luxe line has a vibrating suction cup dildo that is “touch responsive”, claiming the deeper you stroke, the stronger the vibrations. I haven’t tried it, but I don’t expect the vibrations to be super powerful. Then they have a cheaper rabbit style suction cup vibrator that, frankly, I’m skeptical about in terms of vibration. It’s $36 so at least you won’t be out a ton of money. Unfortunately, the suction cup (removable) is PVC. Similarly made with a PVC suction cup is the CalEx realistic vibration suction cup dildo – G-spot style or Standard. Both come in two unrealistic flesh colors.
Higher-End Silicone Suction Cup Dildos over $50
Of course with Tantus, there’s the silicone suction cup attachment, which works with their vibrating dildos. You can also find them at SheVibe, usually for a better price (catch a 10-15% off SheVibe sale for the best deal).
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 purple and blue gradients. It’s got an interesting taper to it, but is 1.75″ at the widest. SheVibe now also carries it, in green and for $20 less. FYI, it’s modeled after the creator. There’s a new one called Chewie, in some gorgeous colors, that is fairly realistic and a little more slender than CJ Hooker.
Funkit, maker of clear silicone with vivid pigment swirls, has an entire line of sex toys based around that innovative hinged suction-cup base. Shevibe carries 3 models – 1 plug and 2 dildos. The NoFrillDos do not have the suction cup base.
New York Toy Collective has a very realistic “uncut” dual density dildo with a suction cup base called Ellis.
Vixen dildos sometimes have a naturally occurring suction cup base. I contacted Vixen to get the complete current line-up:
