The suction cup is stuck!!

Vac-u-lock suction cup plug
Related to: 
I bought this suction cup to go with the Doc Johnson super vac-u-lock dildo. I had trouble getting it in, so I decided to get it a bit wet to help push it in all the way.

This was apparently a very bad idea, as it's now stuck in there. No matter what I do, I cannot get the suction cup out! I've tried everything, even waiting almost a full day to see if letting the water dry up would help, but it didn't! How do I get it out??

Can you try and get some lube around the plug so it can slide out? Basically, you want to try and somehow break the vacuum seal.

In the future, I think there is a powder lubricant to use for the vac-u-lock system. Alternatively, a little water-based lube would probably also work.

I have this and I don't use the powder along with it, though it would make it much easier. I broke the suction by gently pulling on the area near the hole at the same time that I would pull the suction part out.

I think using a water based lubricant is an excellent idea as well. If this seems like it might become a common issue, I would suggest using some corn startch in the hole to prevent this issue from happening again.

I guess I'm too weak, because I've been doing that for hours, and it still doesn't want to come out...

I don't have any lube, but I do have some cooking oil, which I guess would do a similar job... And I do have the powder, and I was going to try it right after I put it in the water! I thought I'd be able to get it right out...

Pull away from the suction cup, and turn, pull, turn; all the way around it, see if that might help.

Also, you could try going into the bathroom and attaching it to the tub. Get a really strong stuction, and pull hard! That might also do the trick.

I can't get it turn very much... and I tried putting it on the tub, after a lot of pulling and struggling, the whole suction cup just popped off!

I am *this* close to seeing if this is grounds for a refund, it might just be easier to send them back in exchange for replacements that aren't fused together... Wish the suction cup had come with some kind of warning against this.

Damn, I was hoping mine was just defective I wish I had some advice, but I never got it out, even after I broke the toy! I had to return it with the suction cup still inside...

Yeah, I stopped trying because I was afraid I was going to break something!

Oof I'm sorry you had to go through all this frustration only to end up with a ripped toy.
