It not only went viral, racking up millions of views, but has gone on to be one of the internet's top recommended adult sex toys. Odds are, if you've done any kind of sex toy searching online in the last year, you've come across the Rose vibrator.

If you’re used to more classic vibrators, you might look at this toy and think, “How on Earth do I use that?” While this flower-shaped unique suction vibrator is absolutely adorable, how to use it might not be immediately obvious. Don’t let that scare you off, though! The Rose Sex Toy can deliver intense, powerful, worldview altering orgasms. So, how do you get there? That's what we're going to talk about today.

Read on to learn about the Rose Sex Toy; what it is, how it works, what makes it different from a standard vibrator, and how you and your partners can use it to reach orgasmic bliss. So get ready folks, it is time to stop and smell the roses!


What is the Rose Sex Toy?

Short answer: The Rose Sex Toy is a sex toy shaped like a rose (I know, duh).

Longer answer: The Rose Sex Toy is a rechargeable clitoris-sucking vibrator and outer sweet spot stimulator with various air pulse or suction modes and intensity levels. From the get-go, folks were comparing the sensation to (really good) cunnilingus and oral sex.

The Rose belongs to a category of toys that has become incredibly popular in the last decade: clitoral suction toys.They are also called clit suckers or air pulse toys, and they work by surrounding the clitoral head with air pressure and pulsation to stimulate the clitoris. For fans of this style of toy, this type of stimulation tends to be especially efficient, bringing on orgasm(s) quickly.

Some extra info: The Rose Sex Toy is a clit suction toy that rocketed to popularity in 2022 with viral appearances on TikTok, countless “best of” lists, and scads of glowing reviews. Social media users claimed it brought about incredibly intense orgasms very quickly. One popular review cited that the user hadn’t even chosen a sexy video to watch before the toy caused her to climax. Additionally, the Rose vibrator was credited with prompting multiple orgasms, squirting, and completely new pleasure experiences for its users. 

I’ll bet that made you curious. Read on to learn more about clitoral suction vibrators. 


Why should you use a sucking vibrator?

If you’re in between choosing a dildo vs. vibrator, then I have an important question to ask you. Do you like intense, precise, targeted clitoral stimulation? Then a sucking vibrator might be right for you!

The driving force behind the popularity of sucking vibrators like the Rose toy is their effectiveness. Truth be told, this form of stimulation -- like anything-- isn’t for everyone. Some people don’t enjoy it. That said, the lion's share of clitoral suction toy reviews will tell you that this type of toy is a good bet for delivering orgasms to the previously orgasm-less and speeding up the process for even the most orgasm-experienced.

But that’s not all! Clit suckers are, despite the name, not just for clitorises! That air pressure technology can be applied to any body part that feels good. The most obvious example here is nipples, but it can also deliver profound pleasure to other erogenous zones like the neck, anus, thighs, navel, thighs, anus, ears, and more.


How to use rose sex toy

I truly believe that there’s typically not one “right” way to use a toy, only the way that works best for you. I also recognize that answer leaves readers staring at a silicone rose thinking, “Cool, but what do I actually do with this thing?” So, I will give you step- by- step instructions to figure out how the Rose works best for you. You might find that these steps are all you need, and that’s great! You also might find that these steps put you on the path to finding a totally different Rose routine that rocks your socks off, which is also great!  If you’re happy, I’m happy. For now though, let’s talk a bit about how you can start out using your Rose, both solo and with a partner!



Here are some steps for solo pleasure with the Rose:

Set the mood

Whenever you use any toy, you want to be comfortable. Take some time to find the position that works for you. Whether you want to lie down, sit, stand, or whatever, you should feel relaxed.

It is important to set the scene before starting so that the right atmosphere can be created. The right mindset is crucial when going for the 'Big O'. Get in the mood by playing your favorite song, taking a bath, lighting some candles, or even treating yourself to a glass of wine. Putting all jokes aside, it is important to be in the right mood before using a vibrator.

Grab the lube

I’ve said it before and I will no doubt say it again (and again): use lube. This might not seem important when using a bullet externally, but even external use can benefit from the smooth, comfortable glide that lube provides.

Get it into position

Center your clitoris in the middle of the suction nozzle and turn the toy on. Not sure if you have the toy in the right position? Be on the lookout for the sensation of a gentle seal. It should feel like it is pinching or pulling but it should definitely feel like the suction is pulling the toy and your body together. 

Explore settings

If all that feels good, you are all set to explore. Many find, especially at the beginning, that the lowest vibration mode is all they need, but you can find the right speed and intensity that works for you.


If it feels good, lay back and enjoy it! You might find that orgasms come on very quickly and that multiple are possible in the same session. Don’t overthink it, just stay with it as long as you want.

What if you are not enjoying it? I mentioned this earlier: like anything sexual, this type of stimulation doesn’t work for everyone. If it’s not for you, don’t feel bad or weird. It doesn’t mean anything is wrong with you. Learn how to choose a vibrator that vibes with your pleasure choices or explore other stimulation options for your body.

With a partner

When it comes to including the Rose while playing with a partner, it is a bit less about following steps and a bit more about playing and exploring. One of you can use it on the other, either clitorally for an intense orgasmic experience or on other erogenous zones for more sensual exploration. 

It can also be fun to incorporate the Rose into your oral, vaginal, or anal sex play. Play around with positions to find what best allows you to engage with each other while allowing the toy to do its thing. Honestly, you’ve got a lot of options here, so have fun!
