How to Use a Suction Cup Dildo

Free up your hands and embark on mini adventures around your house and beyond with a suction cup dildo.

A far cry from a one-trick pony, suction cup dildos can be used in many different ways, locations and scenarios, and come in all shapes, sizes and types.

Now, when it comes to using your suction cup dildo, you could take a ‘stick it and see’ approach and we’re sure you’ll do just fine. But why not let our experts and community members give you the low-down on the many ways in which you can use a suction cup dildo?

The list is endless but we’ve narrowed it down to the absolute best tips and tricks for solo and couples play with a suction cup dildo. Here goes:

Essentials first: always use lube

It goes without saying that water-based lube will help you on your way to a more slippery, pleasurable encounter with your stuck-tastic friend. Most suction cup dildos are made from materials that are compatible with water-based good stuff, so you’ll never go wrong with your fav water-based lube.

“It slides in very easy with lube and hits the spot with the curve instantly. Teamed up with a clit vibrator, all I can say is it took seconds.” - Gem c

To keep things squeaky clean, we recommend a post-playtime tip-to-sucker wash with a sex toy cleaner, and somewhere safe and dry to store it until its next outing.

Positioned for pleasure

One of the best things about suction cup dildos is that they can be adapted to suit a multitude of sex positions.

Doggy-style is a favourite with fans of suction cup toys - simply attach it to a wall or headboard and back onto it. Tailor the height to your liking and control the angle, depth and speed at which you enjoy your dildo.

“That cock is so thick that I G-spot orgasmed from a doggy position! Wonderful toy. Worth every penny I spent.” - AuronsBelovedBunny

Quite the workout for your leg muscles (who said exercise was boring?), try sticking your suction dildo to a horizontal flat surface and squat or sit on it, before bouncing your way to that special place.

Stick it somewhere: wet

A sturdy, smooth, flat surface is a must for your suction cup, and then you're away! Wooden or tiled floors or walls are the most tried and trusted options, opening up your play to a number of locations in the house.

“This is our first suction cup toy and has had a trip to the shower almost every day since, by one of us, myself and the wife.” - Trine

The side of a bathtub means you can straddle the dildo (as you would a partner) by sticking the dildo to the side of the tub and lowering yourself down onto it to ease into your rhythm. The toilet seat gets a firm thumbs up from our community members as it provides a good height and sturdy base for your bouncing endeavours.

If the added dimension of warm water running over your body as you pleasure yourself ticks all the boxes, stick your friend to the shower tiles at a height that's right for you and ride away to your heart's content. If the shower head ends up providing extra stimulation then life just gets better and better.

Stick it somewhere: firm

Chairs have the advantage of giving you something to hold onto while you ride your dildo. Stick your dildo to the seat of the chair and face the back of the chair, using its back for added support and to take the pressure off your legs from doing all the hard work.

“After lying back and using my hand to pound myself with the delectable dong, I tried it stuck to a chair to straddle and stuck to the wall for doggy. Both amazing and the dildo never moved a fraction out of place.” - curvy_kim

If you are fortunate enough to have access to a massage table, they can also make excellent bases for your suction dildo play as they are designed to be able to take the weight of most adults. We would advise you to lower it to its lowest level for safety.

Stick it somewhere: reflective

Mirrors provide the perfect surface for attaching your dildo to, and give you the added bonus of a fantastic view.

“The headboard, a dining room chair, the kitchen work top and most kinky of all, the mirror, are just a few places I have used this! I love this toy, I especially use it when my husband is away as it's so lifelike.” - Horny Hairdresser

Watch yourself ride up and down on your dildo by attaching it to a mirror on the floor, or if you have a wall mirror that has a stable mount, doggy-style with extra visual stimulation (for you and your partner) is the name of the game for you.

Strap in for a good time

Ever-versatile, most suction cup dildos can be teamed with a variety of strap-on harnesses, creating lots of exciting play options for you and your partner.

“I needed a strap-on compatible dildo that wasn't overly realistic, wasn't too thin or small, had a reasonable price tag, and was a realistic (but filling) size. This is the answer.” - PrfsrChaos

Strapping on a dildo leads the way towards vaginal and anal penetration that may have been difficult to achieve without a toy, whether or not you’re a couple that has a naturally-occuring penis. Check out our collection of Strap-On Harnesses and Kits for further inspiration.

Add a third

If the idea of a threesome gets you hot and flustered but the reality of another person joining you has been poo-pooed by your partner, a suction cup dildo is a great alternative.

“I ordered this for my fiancée to play out our MMF fantasy. It doesn't disappoint. Seeing that slide into her and watching her face is something magical.” - LPMG

Stick it to wherever you please and ride the 'other' man in the threesome simulation, or perform oral on it while your partner penetrates you from behind (aka a 'spitroast'). These are just a couple of suggestions, but take full advantage of experimenting with your extra erect penis in the room.
