Lovense Tenera Review: FINALLY a Good Clit Sucking Toy!

Lovense has created many orgasmic masterpieces over the years, but the Tenera is the only one that gives me the playful suction I need for oral-like stimulation. Finally!

The fun doesn’t stop there, though. Its soft texture and realistic movements put me directly in the O-zone within minutes. It’s my pleasure to review this great product and share my findings.


About the Lovense Tenera

lovense suction toy

The Lovense Tenera can pull you into your innermost fantasies in a heartbeat. It’s a suction-based sex toy that simulates the insanely-pleasurable feeling you get from oral experiences. The manufacturers designed it with a vacuum-type mechanism to make this delightful experience possible. These are some of its main features.

A Kissing Cubby

The Tenera’s design looks similar to a small blue banana with an opening at the top for its suctioning features. It isn’t an insertable device, though. Its body is shaped that way to give you enough toy to hold on to, grip to maneuver it, and enough width to keep it in place.

When in use, the Tenera emulates the sucking and kissing your partner might do while spending some time down below. It’s a great companion when you’re separated from your playmate, flying solo, or just in the mood to get kinky.

You can have it blow soft breaths on your clitoral area and tickle erogenous zones you never knew existed. Be sure to slow down and have fun exploring these areas. Experts say more than 8,000 nerve endings exist in the clitoral and the vulvar regions, and I think the Tenera may have touched them all for me.

Lifelike Breathing

This feature is for anyone who has ever received skillful oral sex and had their partner deliver a subtle blow that put them over the top. The device puts all the power in your hands to deliver a toe-curling experience to yourself. You can relive that experience using this unique feature and erupt your little lady volcano all by yourself.

Soft, Gentle Materials

The Lovense Tenera is also crafted of soft silicone materials that feel like genuine skin. You can even add a touch of water or lubricant to enhance the oral sex experience because the device is water-resistant.

Another good quality that I found helpful is its hypoallergenic attributes. I get irritated easily, so it was nice having something that didn’t set my allergies off. It might be beneficial for you if you have similar issues.

Quick Charging

The Tenera takes approximately 1 hour to charge and can provide up to 1.5 hours of non-stop action. The feature is beneficial if you’re into longer sessions and teasing yourself to develop discipline.

Since the product was so effective for me, I hardly used any of its battery life. I think I reached my peak in less than 60 seconds, so there’s plenty of time left to wear the battery down.

Useful To Many People

Anyone who misses having a partner’s lips in their secret garden will love the Tenera. Lovense already had the market cornered on vibrators, G-spot massagers, sex stations, couples toys, clit hitters, etc. This time they remembered the users in the world who like to receive oral stimulation but might not have access to a generous giver.

The Tenera can do the work of a missing, absent, or not-so-gifted partner without exposing you to rejection or causing you to compromise your values. Couples, single people, and playful, adventurous souls can have the same level of fun with this device.

I felt that it performed how it was supposed to, and it stood out from other devices I had tried because of its sharp focus on the life-like gestures of the oral technique.

How to Use the Lovense Tenera

What makes a sex toy preferable to me is its usability. I found that the Tenera was very easy to understand and did not require me to read through the user’s manual and search for information, just to be able to use it.

The package is straightforward and comes with everything you need for your activities: one Lovense Tenera and one charger. Nothing additional comes with the unit at this time. I was hoping for a cute little storage case, but no such luck.

Initial Charge

The Lovense Tenera may not come with a full charge, so it’s wise to connect it once you’ve removed it from the package. It will take about one to two hours to complete its charging process, and then you can enjoy its abundant features.

Sadly, the Tenera doesn’t provide a super-lengthy amount of playtime, but it isn’t the worst item on the market. Playtime will be between 1.5 and two hours total and will depend on how much tinkering you do. If you’re a quick climaxer, you can get many uses out of it before reconnecting it to the charger.

Powering On

Lovense always designs its toys to provide its users with a hassle-free experience. Thus, you only need to press and hold the power button down to turn on your device. A light will indicate that you’ve successfully turned on your Tenera, and you can then begin to have fun with it.

Adjusting the Intensity

You will see two buttons on the side of the Tenera. One indicates “up”, and the other indicates “down”. Use these two buttons to adjust your intensity level upward or downwards. Use low settings for long sexual experiences, extended foreplay, and teasers, or turn up the rumble and unleash your wildest screams with high vibrational pulses.

Sucking Actions

To get the most out of the sucking actions, place the Tenera’s opening over your clitoris. You will not need to hold it in place, as its design will keep it there. Then lie still and allow it to service you.

You can activate the breathing action by squeezing the Tenera’s body so that the air expels onto your clitoral area. Do this as frequently as you need to get the desired effect.

App Usage

The app comes in handy when you want to spend some time with a partner but are too far away. The Tenera connects to the app like most of Lovense’s other toys. To connect, download the app to your phone and turn on the phone’s Bluetooth.

Next, turn on the Tenera, then press and hold its power button until you see flashing lights. That means you’re in pairing mode. Press the connection icon on the Lovense remote application, and it will find your Tenera and connect to it. Once you can control your toy from the app, you’re good to go.


Cleaning the Tenera is a breeze because of its silicone materials. Either antibacterial soap or a special sex toy cleaner is acceptable for this process.

First, run your Tenera under hot water, and don’t worry about causing damage to it. It’s water-resistant and can stand to get a little wet. Next, put a small amount of soap or cleaner on your finger and then work it into the toy to clean its entire surface.

Rinse it with warm water and allow it to dry in a sanitary location. Store it in a safe and clean area so it will be well-sanitized the next time you want to use it.


The Tenera does not come equipped with a special carrying case or separate container. However, you can clean it well and place it back into its original box and plastic to store it when you’re not using it. I found this process to be an acceptable solution.

The Lovense Tenera should be stored in a sanitary and safe location, away from children and pets. The surrounding area’s temperature should not be any warmer than 77°F (degrees Fahrenheit) or colder than 32°F to ensure optimal functionality once you retrieve the unit for use.

How long does shipping take for a Lovense Tenera?

Shipping can take between two and seven business days, depending on the buyer’s location and chosen shipping method. However, some shipments can take as long as 14 days.

Can I get a Lovense Tenera at a pharmacy?

Unfortunately, you cannot purchase a Lovense Tenera at a pharmacy or typical store location. The item is only available online, from the company’s official website.

Does the Lovense Tenera have bad reviews?

I was unable to find any negative reviews about the Lovense Tenera. Most testimonials were positive and complimented the Tenera for its unique features. Its ratings fell between 4.7 and five stars, indicating that consumers’ experiences had been almost perfect in most cases.

What are some Lovense Tenera alternatives?

The Lovense Exomoon is an excellent alternative option because it’s an external stimulator like the Tenera. The Exomoon focuses on stimulating the clitoris rather than insertion, and it’s compact and completely unnoticeable as a sex toy because of its size and design.

The Lovense Ambi is another alternative to consider if you seek pinpointed and precise clitoral stimulation. The Ambi can distribute broad or targeted stimulation to the clitoris, all while sending powerful vibrations to the surrounding areas. It’s also versatile enough to use in different sex positions and small enough to sneak into taboo areas.

You might also like the Ferri if you’re looking for something more portable that focuses on outside stimulation. The Ferri is a non-insertable device like the Tenera but doesn’t have suction features. Instead, you’ll get a straightforward vibrator with a magnetic element for panty attachment.

  • Multiple stimulation features.
  • App compatible.
  • Natural materials.

Lovense Tenera Cons

Lovense Tenera Review: The Verdict

I was excited to purchase the Tenera because it had a few features I’d never used before, but I wasn’t sure how the experience would pan out. It turned out that the orgasms were intense and came much quicker than I expected or imagined, and I had a fantastic experience I would recommend to anyone.

What I enjoyed most was the variety of ways I could use it and how it gave me several avenues to take when pleasuring myself. I could switch between massaging the vulvar area, letting the Tenera “nibble” on my clit, and giving myself a gentle breath that sent me over the top. The experience could never be boring with that much versatility.

The only downside to using this particular model is the not-so-long battery life compared to other toys and the lack of a dedicated G-spot stimulator (like the Womanizer Duo or the Lelo Enigma). But the suction and breathing features make up for it 10 times over!

It’s definitely worth a try if you want a brand-new experience. Head over to the Lovense website and order one for yourself. You might be astonished by how well it can blow you away.
