Lovehoney BASICS Nipple Suckers

I very much love nipple stimulation but I must admit I’ve never used any accessories or toys designed for such play. I got these as a free product a while ago, back when Lovehoney were doing their weekly Facebook deals (which have now changed to Deal of the Week so make sure you sign up to the Deal of the Day email alerts!) so I guess I shouldn’t complain about the quality…

However, they’re basically (!) rubbish. I used to own a couple of toys from the BASICS range a long time ago (love egg, lady lustfinger) which are all great toys for beginners who want to experiment to see if sex toys are for them without breaking the bank. I was fairly happy with those two toys so I expected these to be of the same quality but they’re honestly not. As you can see, they’re not the sexiest of toys – just look at them! They’re pink, plastic and huge which makes them hilarious to look at.

The idea behind these suckers is that you squeeze, hold up to the desired area – which could be anywhere on the body, not just the nipples – and release to enable them to ‘suck’ your skin. I tried these out on my arm first, and they’re so painful! The edges are very rough and sharp & feel so uncomfortable. I couldn’t actually feel the sucking motion because I was so focused on the pain of them digging into my arm!

It is recommended that a small amount of lubricant should be used to make the suction smoother but that honestly didn’t make any difference in this case. It felt like something was viciously biting into my flesh so I think these would have been great, had it not been for the sharp edges. Unfortunately, I was unable to take a photo of them in use but here’s the mark one of these left after I took it off:

Had the edges been smoothed out these would be great nipple toys so I may have to attempt to do it myself using a nail file – I’ll get back to you on that. I’d only recommend these to people who like serious pain and want to try something new. If you have your heart set on nipple suckers specifically, you can find the whole range Lovehoney has to offer here. Otherwise, the BASICS Nipple Suckers are available to buy here.
