This was my first trip into the world of Mystic Wands… and I don’t think I’ll be returning. I don’t feel like this is a toy that will work for a wide range of people. The vibrations are too weak and too buzzy to satisfy most, and I’ve never been quite so disappointed in the construction quality of a toy—especially at this price point of around $100.
You’re probably not surprised to hear that I had really high expectations for the Doxy Die Cast wand vibrator. Do you blame me? It’s gorgeous. It’s a million times prettier than my Magic Wand, it’s stronger, and it’s made from better and safer materials. Oh yeah, it also has more speeds and can be used internationally. It did not disappoint me! My Doxy Die Cast has earned a coveted spot in my nightstand (only my Magic Wand and the Njoy Pure Wand have ever reached this status folks).
Once my Vamp and I were on better terms, I found that there’s lots of good stimulation no matter how you use it. The gradual widening head of the Vamp felt great being slowly inserted over and over, and the super defined coronal ridge offered a lot of pleasant sensations against my inner walls when thrusting. It’s also great if you’re looking for a toy that you can just leave in place to give your muscles something to clench around.
Is there a bee in here? There’s so much buzzing… oh wait, it’s the Bswish Bcurious. The Bswish Bcurious Premium is a small rechargeable waterproof vibrator with 7 settings, has a ton of seams (you know, for lube and what not to get into), and is one of the buzziest vibrators I’ve ever used.
I want to say this toy is good for those looking for both external and particularly internal stimulation, but even the flexibility of the shaft and clitoral arm won’t make it work for every body type. Those also looking for strong non-buzzy clitoral vibration should keep looking. Honestly, the high price tag (<$110) of this toy makes it difficult to recommend because for that kind of money I basically want my toys to make me orgasm and cook me dinner, and this toy did not feel worth the money to me.
If you google the Lelo Ella, you’ll find blog posts that often sound more like love letters then sex toy reviews. Ella is beautiful; mine is a matte plum color and the soft feel of it constantly makes me wonder why my other silicone toys don’t feel nearly as awesome. Seriously, it feels like the cashmere of sex toys and is super silky against your skin. There’s virtually no drag at all with this material, and as a dog owner I can happily say Ella attracts less dog fur then any other silicone toy I own (but a little dust/fur does is unavoidable on virtually […]
Je Joue’s Mimi is a small, flattened egg-shaped vibrator that’s easy to hold, is made of hard plastic encased in silicone, and a bit of ABS plastic around the controls, Mimi has five vibration settings and is waterproof. Mimi sounds almost perfect on paper… so why does it do almost nothing for me? I don’t think it’s the design flaws Mimi has, although clearly there are some. As lovely as Mimi is, my clit is a bit too power-hungry and the vibrations just aren’t intense enough to bring me to orgasm.
The Magic Wand for me is like the ex that you compare anyone who comes after to, and no other toy has really been able to meet the high standards I have because of it. I sometimes picture a world in which I never tried the Magic Wand original: would I like the other toys I own more or would I have just had less orgasms in my life? The world may never know.
