Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine Vibrator Review

The Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine: Fuck Yeah, It’s Yellow

Do you want to know why I wanted the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine so bad? Do you really want to know? The simple answer, not the well-articulated, well-thought out professional writer answer? Alright, here’s the secret: I like it because it’s yellow.

I’m extremely simple! Yellow represents some of my favorite things, like fat 90s Pikachu, Pompompurin, lemons, and a stick of butter I’m about to take a bite out of before turning it into sugar cookies. I love sex toys that are bright and colorful, and especially sex toys that aren’t yet another tired shade of pink or purple. 

But, aside from its color, the main reason I wanted to try the Sunshine was because even before I started this blog, I knew I wanted to do a direct product comparison experiment.

The Knock-Off vs. The Real Deal:

The Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine is, for all intents and purposes, an unapologetic knockoff of Fun Factory’s G5 Tiger. When I was making my big first sex toy purchase in early 2020, I found myself contemplating if I should splurge on the Tiger or pick the Sunshine as a budget choice. I wound up picking the Tiger at that point and, don’t get me wrong, it’s a fantastic vibrator, but the Sunshine still lurked at the back of my mind for months after receiving and using the Tiger.

I knew the Tiger was the higher quality, objectively better option, but I still wanted to know what the Sunshine had to offer.

Is the Sunshine Worth It?

While the Sunshine is a knock-off and I don’t love Satisfyer as a company, I have to say…I really loved this vibrator. The Fun Factory Tiger was $140, but the Sunshine’s standard retail price is only $50. This vibrator is an amazing budget option with strong vibrations, an ergonomic handle, a cute color, and a rippled texture that I absolutely LOVE.

The Sunshine’s primary appeal is as a budget-friendly alternative to the Tiger, but I strongly recommend it as a stand-alone vibrator. I love the Sunshine in its own right, and it provides unique textural sensations compared to the Tiger, making it able to solidly stand on its own two feet. Also, it made me squirt all over the place, so my vagina speaks for itself. For a budget-friendly vibrator, I seriously cannot recommend the Sunshine enough.

Anyway, here’s the review!

Packaging and Marketing Complaints:

When I received the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine in the mail, the first thing I noticed was that its packaging….really wasn’t my thing in terms of design aesthetic.

I appreciate the construction of its packaging a lot. I like how the box opens like a storybook to reveal a cut-out window where you can view the toy in its plastic clamshell within the box. I imagine this would be great if I were purchasing it in a brick and mortar sex shop, since it would give me a great visual preview of the toy. I also like that the box closes over the cut-out window with a little magnet.

Is the sexy woman drawing really necessary? SHE’S NOT EVEN USING THE VIBRATOR! SHE’S JUST POSING! AT LEAST USE THE VIBRATOR!

But, that’s the end of my positive commentary.

The packaging is excruciatingly gendered, and covered with illustrations of seductive, conventionally attractive women. It makes me feel like this product is “not for me” and just perpetuates a traditional image of womanhood and femininity that I am…super not a part of. Again, I have a lot more to say about this, but there wound up being so much to say that I had to make a completely separate post.

Name Complaints:

I also hate that this vibrator is named “Yummy Sunshine.” This is just because I hate the word “yummy.” Just call it the “Satisfyer Sunshine!” Call it the “Satisfyer Ray of Sunshine!” AUGH!

Like, the word “yummy” inherently makes me barf in my mouth, I can’t express this enough.

This might just be a “me thing,” but this is my blog so I can complain about it if I want to. 

I’ve written a separate blog post that goes into more detail about how much I hate the packaging for this specific toy as well as how painfully gendered Satisyer’s marketing is in general. It was originally going to be part of this blog, but…then I just went off on too long of a tangent. Instead, I decided it would be better to save that rant for a separate blog in the future.

For now, on to the rest of the review!

First Impressions of the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine:

Fortunately, after initially losing my mind over the packaging/marketing decisions of Satisfyer, I had an immediately pleasant experience when interacting with the Sunshine itself.

I’ve never felt compelled to use the phrase “buttery smooth” before, but with the Sunshine, that was immediately the word I was struck by–”buttery.” It might just be the bright, buttery yellow color playing tricks on me, but the silicone of this vibrator really is exceptionally smooth. I’ve interacted with other smooth silicones before, but usually in the context of a thin layer of smooth silicone covering a harder plastic body. With the Sunshine, even the squishiest parts of the vibrator are a delightful silky smooth.

The silicone of the Sunshine is firm with a slight squish, and very nice to feel. However, I will note it’s easy to feel the hard internal part of the Sunshine through the silicone coating, even without trying very hard to do so. The Fun Factory G5 Tiger, again, has a very similar design (being the original, duh), but the internal aspect is a lot less noticeable and a lot less drastic to feel in the G5 Tiger. The Sunshine’s silicone also isn’t a lint magnet, which is definitely a plus.

I can’t emphasize enough how much I love this vibrator’s texture–when it initially arrived I just sat there absentmindedly petting it for a few minutes, and in between tasks while preparing dinner that evening I kept going back to the bedroom just so I could touch it. 

Truly…I can’t believe it’s not butter….

Insertable length: About 6”

Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine Shape and Texture:

The Sunshine has a rippled texture that spans the length of the vibrator up to its head, which has a gently scooped shape. These ripples aren’t overwhelmingly pronounced or intense, but definitely still noticeable enough to create an enjoyable texture experience. There is also a slight external nub protruding outwards from the main shaft of the Sunshine, which is covered with the same rippled texture.

As I mentioned before, you can feel the internal part of the Sunshine easily at a certain point in the vibrator’s body. That point just so happens to be right at the junction where the external nub protrudes. Since the motor is at its most powerful here, the combination of texture and intense vibration made penetration really enjoyable, as well as rubbing the textured parts all over my clit.

The shape of the head of this vibrator really feels great, and the ripples feel fantastic internally. The texture of the silicone doesn’t eat up lube and feels very smooth when inserting. Additionally, this vibrator doesn’t feel too large, and the ripple texture is still relatively mild, making it good for days when more pronounced texture feels like too much for me.

This vibrator would be a great choice for people who enjoy internal texture, but have limits on how much they can handle. I appreciate how flexible the shaft of it is, and while everyone’s body is different, I found I’m usually able to combine thrusting/internal stimulation with the nub hitting my clit enough to reach my ideal combo of internal and external stimulation. 

Handle Design: A Half-Assed (Literally) Knock-Off of Fun Factory:

Looking at the controls area, you can see another area where Satisfyer tried to copy Fun Factory, but fell short in a weird way. Fun Factory toys have a white plastic looped handle that I love. It makes holding on to their toys much easier and Fun Factory’s raised control buttons easy to locate and find.

The Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine has a looped handle…but only half of it is plastic?? The back half of the loop, without the buttons is…silicone??? That connects to the rest of the vibrator? To me, this seems like a really weird design choice. I’m honestly concerned about this design choice deteriorating and coming apart over time if the silicone starts to detach from the plastic, as the connection in the loop doesn’t feel that secure to me.

Looped handle of the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine

Making the loop half plastic and half silicone also just feels weird when holding it, and it results in a vibrator that feels a lot less sturdy and stable to hold onto compared to the Fun Factory handle that Satisfyer was clearly trying to imitate. I know that some things are done to avoid completely ripping off patents, but like…surely there’s a better way than a weird half-silicone looped handle.

However, I will say that I would rather have a looped handle that isn’t perfect as opposed to no handle at all. Looped handles as a design concept, period, make sex toys a lot easier to use and a lot more accessible. As a person with shitty wrists, I appreciate this a lot. The looped handle works very well, even if I think the design of it is a little questionable.

Controls:

Unfortunately, the looped handle is where my praise for accessibility ends. The controls themselves are….not great for me. In use, I found it was difficult to feel out the buttons, as the textures aren’t very distinctive both in terms of differentiating from each other or from standing out from the body of the vibrator. The power button is the most textured, located in the center, but the button to increase intensity can barely be found at all. Even as I’m sitting here writing a review, lights on, fully dressed, no distractions at all, finding the buttons on this thing is a pain in the ass.

The texture of the buttons does very little to assist in feeling them, and pressing them feels really weird. To me, it feels like my thumb jams into the silicone, which results in a really bad sensory feeling.

Please, I am begging vibrator manufacturers to make distinct, easy to feel and press buttons. Don’t make me have to smash my thumb into it in order to operate it. I have to clarify, it’s not that the buttons feel difficult to press. Rather, the way my thumb sinks into the silicone is simply unpleasant from a sensory perspective.

On the bright side, the controls are intuitive and easy to understand, and you can easily cycle back and forth between settings, which is always a plus. 

Vibrations and Patterns for the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine:

To turn the Sunshine on, you have to press and hold the center button for a couple seconds. It comes to life on option 3 (out of 5) total intensity options. Aside from intensity option #1, which felt too weak for me, I thought all of the intensity options were very good quality vibrations, and I would describe them as strong with more rumble than buzz. It’s certainly not as deep and rumbly as the Fun Factory G5 Tiger, but by no means does it feel weak or disappointing.

I was very happy with the vibration quality of the Sunshine, and I think that it’s an extremely solid pick based on vibration quality alone. 

It also has six patterns, which directly copy the patterns of the original Fun Factory Tiger. However, the Satisfyer’s patterns have much more distinctive….sounds….compared to the Tiger. I’ve done my best to describe the auditory experience below:

Pattern Setting 1: wwwwwhOAAAAHhwhhhhhWHOaAAHHHhhhhh (a gradual wave that slowly builds up and comes back down)
Pattern Setting 2: wAOwAOwAOwAOwAO (a more steady wave-type pattern)
Pattern Setting 3: WUWUWUWUWUWUWUWUWUWU (a pulsating pattern)
Pattern Setting 4: Sounds and like an alien spaceship rapidly taking off??? Like a weird very rapid laser beam sound effect? I think this is the only pattern I would actually use because it’s both very fast and very strong.
Pattern Setting 5: WUWUWUUWUWUWUWUWUWUwwwwwwwwWUWUWUWUWUUWUWUUUWUUwwwwwww–An alternation of the rapid fire PEW PEW PEW alien spaceship pattern taking off contrasted with a dull lull, so rapidly dropping to high and fast to a low, steady vibration.
Pattern Setting 6: A sequence of 6 moderately spaced vibrations, then 6 more closely spaced vibrations, then 6 rapid vibrations

I’m not a person who typically enjoys patterns in vibrators, but like I said, I think I could use pattern 4 without getting too annoyed. I will also note that you can’t adjust intensity of the different patterns–the pattern setting determines the intensity.

I will note, though. I’m not just being cute or dramatic or entertaining by describing the sounds of the vibration patterns with alien noises. It reminds me of the sound effects from this Scooby-Doo alien movie I saw as a kid. While it’s not overwhelmingly noisy, it really does sound like it’s going to blast off and return to outer space on some settings.

Anal???

I couldn’t find any clear information regarding if this toy is anal safe or not. Satisfyer’s manufacturer website says:
“Stimulation: Vaginal. Suitable for: Woman.”

Since we all know women don’t poop and therefore don’t have buttholes, I suppose that means this toy is a no-go for anal. My personal assessment is that I don’t think the external nub is pronounced enough for this toy to be truly safe for anal.

Side view of Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine
As you can see, the nub doesn’t protrude enough to be a safeguard for anal sex.

On SheVibe’s listing for this product, it isn’t marked as being anal safe either. I would take their word for it and refrain from putting this toy up your butt.

Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine Performance:

My partner and I first tried out this toy separately, but when we discussed our experience we found that we had the same initial results. We both really enjoyed how it felt externally, with internal use being more of an afterthought. The rippled surface of the Sunshine, combined with the motor placement, means that rubbing this toy on your external genitals feels SO fucking good. The ripples…I can’t stop thinking of them….I love them.

Praising how this vibrator feels externally isn’t meant to imply it performs poorly as an internal vibrator. The ripples are just as enjoyable stimulating the internal walls of my vagina, and the gently curved tip provided excellent G-spot AND A-spot stimulation. I truly went to town pounding myself fast and deep with this vibrator, and that’s because it’s so easy to go nuts with it. Once I started using the Sunshine internally, it was almost impossible for me to stop.

Because the Sunshine’s silicone is so smooth, it’s easy to insert and lends itself really well to rapid thrusting. The Sunshine glides easily in and out, and never feels like it drags in use. Because the top portion of the Sunshine’s silicone is so soft and cushy, it’s easy to thrust rapidly without any sense of discomfort. Only unceasing pleasure…like, I felt like I went into a masturbation trance using this thing. It was fantastic. I had to change the sheets afterwards.

Holding the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine

You’ve Heard of Dancing in the Moonlight, Now Get Ready for Squirting with the Sunshine:

While squirting is very much a “your mileage may vary” situation, I squirted a LOT with this toy. My go-to squirting method is fast, rapid internal thrusting alternating with targeted, strong clit vibration. I have frequently squirted with the We-Vibe Rave in the past using this method, and I found the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine delivered similarly squirty results.

The Sunshine works really well for this method of conjuring a squirt—I’ll say a little bit better than the Rave—because compared to the Rave, the Sunshine’s squishy tip combined with its ergonomic handle makes rapid thrusting really easy. Because of the rippled texture, which I can’t stop emphasizing, pulling the Sunshine out of my vagina meant that not only were the vibrations concentrated on my clit, but my clit received even more stimulation because of the ripples.

I couldn’t stop fucking myself when I was using the Sunshine??? Seriously, it seemed to last forever. Inside, outside, squirt, inside, outside, squirt more….it was great.

Thanks for the squirts, friend.

Final Thoughts on the Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine:

For $50, this is absolutely a worthwhile vibrator.

If you’re looking for a quality vibrator on a budget and if you’re interested in a vibrator capable of providing both external and internal stimulation, I would absolutely recommend this vibrator.

I love EVERYTHING about the texture of this vibrator, from the rippled element to the smooth, buttery feeling of the silicone itself. While it’s a knock-off of the Tiger, I have to say, I sometimes reach for the Sunshine over the Tiger because the texture is just so good.

The controls aren’t what I would like in terms of button texture, but they’re still easy enough to use and find, they’re just not my ideal. The looped handle, while its design isn’t perfect, is still a huge step in making this vibrator more accessible and easy to use.

A Bright and Sunny Delight:

I think the Sunshine would be a fantastic “first sex toy” for someone who doesn’t know exactly what they’re looking for yet. It offers the opportunity to try out both internal and external stimulation as well as experiment with texture. The Sunshine has rumbly, powerful vibrations, and it offers the opportunity to try out a solid range of vibration intensities as well as a range of diverse vibration patterns. The Sunshine is highly affordable for a first time sex toy, and most importantly, all of the materials used in this vibrator are body-safe. 

For someone who already has several sex toys, I still think this is a solid pick. Despite owning the Fun Factory G5 Tiger, which this toy is essentially a knock-off of, the smooth silicone and rippled texture of the Sunshine make it different enough from the Tiger for me to even pick the Sunshine over the Tiger when I’m in a mood for the unique texture sensation the Sunshine offers. Additionally, its affordability compared to the Tiger makes it perfect for someone who is interested in the Tiger but simply can’t afford the price point of the Tiger.

I’ll end this review the same way I started it–I really do just love the color yellow. I also love that for $25, I was able to get a body-safe vibrator with great texture and powerful vibrations. You can get a Sunshine of your own here at SheVibe!
