Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer BarginHunta
Satisfyer has built quite the reputation in the sex toy world for its style of toys, and combined with our love for penguins we were keeping everything crossed when the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation was offered for review at CaraSutra. As luck would have it, we were chosen to review it – and could not wait!
The Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation comes packed in a compact little box with a very smart looking penguin on the front, complete with his cute little bow-tie!
Also pictured in the lower corner of the box is the image of the USB magnetic charging cable.
The Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation box has a “Hygienic Seal” on the openable flaps, which is a nice touch and gives the reassurance that it at least has not been opened since it left the supplier.
After breaking the seal you can slide the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation out of the box in its clear plastic tray.
As well as the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation itself, and the magnetic charging cable, there is also a simple instruction booklet.
As with most rechargeable toys the recommendation is to charge it fully before first use.
This does not come with a USB mains adaptor, so you’ll either need to already have one, or else charge this from a computer or similar device.
The charging cable connects to the base of the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation via two metal contacts that it simply magnetically ‘snaps’ to.
We did actually have some trouble maintaining a good contact for charging initially. Although the magnetic contact was good the cable only needed to change directly slightly and the charging would stop, albeit that the cable was still connected to the toy. Looking closer we noticed that the contacts on the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation appeared to have a sticky residue over them. We carefully removed this thin film, which seemed to be from the manufacturing process. Once the contacts were clean the cable connected easily and the charging was a lot more reliable allowing for variations in cable angle.
Aesthetically the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation really appealed to us, and the penguin “figure” of the toy is achieved well without detriment to the toy itself. Even the cute little bow-tie is a nice touch; it serves no functional purpose, but finishes the look off nicely.
The silicone is lovely and smooth to the touch, without any obvious seams or joins, and certainly no rough edges. We have the original Satisfyer Pro 2, and did have some concerns as to how the shorter, dumpier shape of the penguin would feel in the hand in comparison, but we found that it was actually a really nice size & shape to hold; compact but not so small as to be fiddly.
The control button area is chunky enough, and well placed to be easy to locate, and to operate, for either partner during use.
The nozzle opening appears to be wider than on the Satisfyer Pro 2 (original), but in all honesty there probably isn’t very much difference.
How It Feels
If you’ve never tried one of these pulsating suction toys then we would highly recommend them!
It is a ‘different’ sensation than ‘direct stimulation’ toys give; the closest I can describe it is as a pulsating vibration without the buzzing that a direct vibrator causes. Personally I find that this means a can play harder and for longer, as I do not get the numbing sensation that buzzing clitoral vibes can sometimes cause.
Something that was new to me with this model was the ability to be able to step the intensity both up and down at any time, whereas previously models had to be taken to the full setting before stepping back down again. For us this is a big improvement; it allows a lot more control during solo play, and gives great ‘teasing’ ability when playing together.
It has 11 intensity levels, but at the lowest levels it seems to be struggling, almost sounding like it is going to stall. I find the best starting level is around level 3 which gives a great sensation, and then up to 7 or 8 for some great intensity. Personally I find that once I go above around 8 the sensation really changes, rather than just being more intense, and I think this is probably down to how the pulsating air operates. My clitoris at that point is no longer being sucked into and released by the toy, but rather just subjected to intense non-contact “vibrations”. This is where the ability to step up and down in intensity is really appreciated as it means you can easily switch between these really different sensations during your play session.
If you do have any other Satisfyer products I would say that the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation is quieter than the Satisfyer Pro 2 that we have, but neither are particularly noisy when in contact with the body, (if operated away from the body they are noticeably louder, but where’s the fun in that?!)
Being silicone the whole toy is very easily wiped clean. The nozzle of the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation (the white section) can also be carefully teased from the body to be given a full clean. Do take note of which way around it goes into the toy though, as it can be a bit fiddly to get back together, but overall it is generally easy to clean.
The Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation is a really cute addition to the Satisfyer family, and definitely one that will be staying in our collection. We have a selection of different toys, and all give different sensations on the path to orgasm. With most of my toys I can stifle myself enough that I can happily use them in the house with other people around, however with both the older Satisfyer Pro 2, and this Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation it is strictly only for use when my other half and I are the only ones home (and the windows are all closed!)
At £69.99 the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation is quite pricey, and probably quite daunting if you’ve never tried one before, I know I was wary to start with. However there really isn’t anything else like these non-contact pulsating air toys and I highly recommend it; if you buy from Lovehoney you also have the backing of their excellent returns policy should you find it doesn’t suit you.
Having tried two different styles the “next gen” model is definitely an improvement due to the ability to step up and down in intensity, and on a personal level the fact it’s a Penguin scores extra credit for cuteness.
Overall rating 11/10
