While you may be most familiar with roses in the context of wedding bouquets and bodega buds, the classic floral has made its way from tabletop vases to the bedroom. If the rose vibrator is all over your TikTok "For You" page, you're not the only one. Since its debut, this category of floral-shaped sex toys has cemented itself as a viral sensation. So, obviously, we had to know: Does the rose vibrator live up to the hype?

We've uncovered why everyone is loving this powerful little rose toy. And, as a bonus, we found the best rose vibrators on the market in case you wanted to snag one yourself. (Isn't everything just coming up roses?)

In this article:

What Is the Rose Vibrator?

Shaped like its namesake, the rose vibrator is unlike traditional vibrators being that it's a suction toy. Designed to deliver suction stimulation directly to the clitoris, it utilizes air-pressure technology for a sensation inspired by oral sex. Due to this truly fab function and its ultra-approachable appearance, the rose vibrator has gained quite the following on TikTok and has earned itself a reputation for delivering mind-blowing orgasms to its scores of fans.

Vibrator vs. Suction Toy

Rose vibrators fall into the suction toy family of sexual wellness products. Instead of stimulating the genitals and erogenous zones with vibrations, suction toys do so using pulses of air. For many, this results in a sucking or an oral-sex-like feel. (Intriguing, no?)

While some may find traditional vibrators to be overstimulating, suction toys don't come in direct contact with the clitoris, often making them a more comfortable choice. But rest assured that these babies don't skimp on power: Many reviewers hail suction toys (and the rose vibrator in particular) for their knack for producing powerful orgasms—and quickly for many. And with their whole slew of available settings and features, a suction vibe may just be the upgrade your toy collection needs.

What Makes the Rose Vibrator So Unique?

While its teasing air pluses may set the vibrating rose apart from the toys currently taking up residence in your nightstand drawer, other suction toys on the market perform in similar function. So what makes the rose vibrator so unique?

In addition to its pleasure prowess, it's hard to ignore the rose vibrator's extra-cute aesthetic. Sure, some think of that as simply a bonus—but who knew sex toys could be so darn precious?

Between its unusually adorbs appearance and leg-shaking sensations, you've likely haven't tried a toy quite like the rose vibrator before.

How to Use the Rose Vibrator

Whether you're a beginner when it comes to sex toys in general or are just unfamiliar with floral-fashioned vibes, there's no need to be intimidated.

Since there are a few different rose suction toys available for purchase, it's worth noting that each works slightly differently and comes with its own set of instructions. But the basic steps are likely the same to get started: After reading the directions and ensuring your toy is fully charged (or loaded with batteries), go ahead and switch it on. Start on the lowest setting and gently place the toy's head over your clitoris. Once you're familiar with the sensation, explore the different settings to see which you prefer and consider the following tips:

  • Foreplay can still exist even if you're playing solo: Tend to other erogenous zones first, or begin by masturbating with your hands if that's how you're used to pleasing yourself. If your rose vibrator is waterproof, consider drawing a bath and bringing it into the tub.
  • Try using your rose vibrator during partnered or penetrative play.
  • Use lubricant for best results. (Remember to only use water-based lubricants with silicone toys.)
  • Experiment using your rose suction toy on your nipples and other erogenous zones.
  • Don't rush! If this is your first time using a rose vibrator or suction toy, take time to learn what feels good.
