I knew the VacuGlide was big, but I was still very surprised when the actual box showed up. This thing looked gigantic! Fortunately, a lot of that was packaging, and the actual toy is much smaller than the box it comes in. Inside of the package, the toy is encased in a travel backpack. This is great, as it ensures the toy stays safe even if the box is thrown around a bit, while also giving you somewhere convenient to store the toy & accessories.

Testing It Out

I turned on the toy and messed around with it a bit before actually watching the instructional videos. The VacuGlide has no problem suctioning itself to your hand, so I figured the real-life experience would be similar. Still, watching the videos is important, as it tells you how to adjust the stroke length (both manually and with the buttons). I’ll admit, it took me a bit to get the hang of this toy. I think part of this is due to the shape of the sleeves. You get three sleeves to choose from, but they’re all straight, which isn’t ideal if you have a curve in your penis. Don’t get me wrong: you can easily fit inside! However, getting the toy to work hands-free is a bit of a challenge. A lot of this comes down to getting the stroke length correct. Turn it up too much and the toy needs to be held in place (or else it will just jump off!). Still, having shaved pubic hair is extremely helpful when trying to get the toy to work hands-free. Otherwise, the toy basically needs to be held in place.

The Experience

The best part about this toy is that it stimulates your entire shaft at the same time. It messes with you at first, as the VacuGlide seems extremely loud when you’re next to it. However, for what it is, it’s actually pretty quiet, so you can definitely drown it out with a little bit of TV in the background. I found that the best position to the toy was lying down, with the VacuGlide next to me, within reach. This made it easy to adjust the speeds and depth of the toy. Since both the cord and the tube are fairly long, I didn’t have any issues with the toy not reaching. Of course, if the eight-foot tube is too long, you could always cut it down to a better length for your setup. All in all, despite being a fairly large device, the VacuGlide is extremely easy to use. Even if you have limited space to work with, enjoying the VacuGlide should be a straightforward process!

If it wasn't for the large "Autoblow" logo on the front, this toy could easily pass as some sort of niche pump. I mean, technically, it is! The aluminum exterior looks very polished, and the mostly silver design with black accents pairs well with the plain tubing and black sleeve. I really like how the sleeves can come apart, as this makes cleaning the toy extremely easy. The tube is fairly easy to get on/off, and the shaped "feet" on the VacuGlide help to keep it from rolling away during use.

The controls on this toy are extremely simple. There's the start/stop button, two speed buttons, two stroking buttons, and the power switch. As long as you remember that you need to hold down the stroking buttons for them to work, you pretty much have all the knowledge you need to get started enjoying this toy. If you've adjusted as much as possible and still can't get the stroking length right, there's also an Allen wrench included with the toy to help you adjust it even more precisely. Personally, I didn't have to use this, but you might find it helpful!

You can just tell this thing is high-quality. All of the surfaces feel smooth and polished; even the plastics feel well-made. Being well-made can be a downside though, which becomes apparent when it's time to disconnect the tube. Pro tip? Disconnect the end from the VacuGlide first to make your life a bit easier! All of the parts fit together perfectly, from the tubes to the sleeves and even the plugs. The buttons do have a little bit of wiggle to them, but this is to be expected, as they're only plastic.

The biggest downfall of this device is the price tag. To be perfectly honest, I actually preferred the Autoblow AI Ultra over this device! However, whether or not it's worth buying for you really depends on the type of stimulation you're after (I prefer friction). If you prefer suction to friction-based stroking, then you have to ask yourself: how often will I actually use this? If the answer is every day, well then, I'd say it might be worth it. The high-quality device will no doubt last for years to come, which weighs heavily in its favor.

VacuGlide -

Overall, I liked the toy, although getting it to the point where you can use it hands-free takes a bit of effort. As previously mentioned, this will work best if you've shaved your pubic hair, as anything that gets in the way of the seal will ruin the suction. Personally, I found that just holding the toy made the whole process a lot easier, especially since it likes to loosen itself up a bit on higher settings. The entire hands-free experience relies heavily on suction, so I don't think you could do this if you had a thinner penis. I found that using extra lube, pushing the device down to the base of my penis, and adjusting accordingly worked the best.

VacuGlide -

The packaging is fairly accurate when it comes to describing the toy, claiming "vacuum-induced milking action!". Reading it will give you a bit more information about the toy, such as the strokes per minute it can achieve, what adjustments it offers, and what types of penises it will work with. I like how the front of the boy has a QR code right on it, as this links you to videos that will give you more detailed instructions on how to use and adjust the toy. The back lists everything that comes with the toy, showing the toy packed into the backpack (which will be useful if you forget where everything goes).

Being mains-powered, the VacuGlide isn't waterproof. This won't be an issue, though, as the only part you'll likely need to clean often is the sleeve. Since the sleeve is on the other end of an eight-foot tube, cleaning it will be a breeze. You can actually completely disassemble the sleeve, separating the body-safe silicone sleeve from the plastic casing. This makes it easy to clean everything without worrying about missing dips or ridges. As mentioned above, this also comes with a backpack, which is great for everyday storage and travel alike!

  • Highly adjustable
  • Comes with three silicone sleeves
  • Easy to clean
  • No battery constraints
  • Relatively quiet

  • Requires a lot of lube
  • Doesn't offer vibrations
  • Expensive

For people who really enjoy suction, I think the VacuGlide has potential. Penis sensitivity will play a big factor as well. Who is it most valuable to? Definitely people who struggle to get erections. As this toy can be enjoyed with or without an erection, I'd say it's definitely an option worth considering if you fall into this category. The upfront cost is a bit much, but the longevity of this toy should help lower the cost over time. Although I personally preferred the Autoblow AI Ultra, if you're the type of person who enjoy suction and constant shaft stimulation over specific and targeted friction, the VacuGlide is definitely an option you'll want to look into.

The VacuGlide is extremely easy to use once you get the hang of it, but there are still a few quirks and tricks you’ll want to know about. Fortunately, you can head over here for complete video instructions.

No, the VacuGlide does not vibrate. It also doesn't "stroke", at least not in the traditional sense. Instead, this toy offers a unique suction stimulation that's highly adjustable, both in terms of depth and in terms of speed.

Yes and no. Ultimately, your results will vary. If you have a straighter penis and shaved pubic hair then you will likely be able to use the VacuGlide hands-free. However, if you don't meet these two requirements then using the toy hands-free will likely require a bit of extra tweaking in the settings to get things right and ready.

Very much so! Being silicone, the sleeve of the VacuGlide was already easy to clean. However, since you can actually take the sleeve apart, cleaning this toy is extremely easy, even when compared to open-ended stroker toys.

Nope! The VacuGlide has a six-foot tube, which makes it extremely easy for the tube to reach from the VacuGlide to the stroker on your penis, even if you set it on the floor. However, I found that simply placing the toy next to me on the bed worked fine as well. The cord on the VacuGlide is also fairly long, meaning outlet placement shouldn't pose an issue either.

Yes and no. The VacuGlide is much larger and heavier than most other male sex toys, but it comes complete with a backpack that conveniently holds the VacuGlide and all of its accessories. As long as you don't mind carrying around the extra weight, I'd say it's portable!
