I first learned about mains powered wand vibrators while doing a little research into the more powerful sex toys available on the market. Like lots of women, I could sometimes struggle to reach orgasm through manual stimulation. There was nothing wrong with me physically, but I was putting a lot of pressure on myself to please my partners. Psychologically, I was so focused on not taking too long, or boring him to sleep, that I crippled my ability to climax. Of course, I did not realise this at the time. Instead I just assumed that I was just “difficult” and so I decided to look to sex toys for help.
The first mains powered magic wand vibrator I stumbled across was the well known and much loved Hitachi wand. The Hitachi was launched in the 70’s as a sports massager and was not initially designed for use as a sex toy, but being the imaginative creatures we are, we soon began putting it to use as one. Pretty soon, women were speaking out about the body shaking orgasms they were experiencing with this massager and Hitachi became a well known name in the sex toy industry. Unfortunately Hitachi was not happy about this association and so the product was re-branded in 2013. It is now known as the “Magic Wand Original” and for those curious, you can find this re-branded magic wand at maxiwand.com.
Of course, being a sex toy newbie, I glanced briefly at this huge, clunky vibrator and moved swiftly on. The wand vibrator was not designed to appeal to those looking for a sex toy and as such, the packaging and overall aesthetics screamed ‘functional’. I thought it looked more like a medical device, placing it worlds apart from the pretty, petite (and often very pink) vibrators I was used to ogling in sex toy stores. I struggled to see what all the fuss was about and deciding that I knew better, I purchased a battery operated bullet instead. I did notice an immediate improvement in my orgasmic ability, but I still felt that something was missing. I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.
I spent the next few years expanding my sex toy collection. My experience with sex toys grew and I learned about the kind of stimulation my body craved. I also discovered that, although no two vibrators felt exactly alike, there was a sliding scale in terms of sensations. On one end of the scale are the vibrators that produce extremely shallow vibrations. Often, this type of vibrator will vibrate at incredibly fast speeds, producing a high pitched buzz that sounds similar to a mosquito. When I place these vibrators against my clitoris, the sensations do not travel deeply. Instead, they stay on the surface level and feel quite ticklish. At the other end of the scale are vibrators that produce a much deeper sensation. These are often described as “rumbling” or “thumping” vibrations and this type travel deeper, stimulating many of the nerve endings that reside below the surface. It was those deep, rumbling vibrators that pleased me the most and took me to orgasm more reliably.
Many women have a preference towards deeper, rumbling vibrations and this makes sense when you realise that the clitoris is much like an iceberg. The part of your clitoris that is visible between your labia is just the tip, but there is much more to the clitoris than meets the eye (Don’t believe me? Go check it out the clitoris on Wikipedia). Your clitoris has two “legs” and these legs extend below the surface, curving around the anterior wall of your vagina. Because rumbling vibrations travel deeper into the tissues, they are much more likely to stimulate deeper into the clitoris, hitting the sensitive nerve endings that sit below the surface.
The more I understood this, the more I was drawn towards the magic wand vibrators, so I finally bit the bullet and purchased one. I still remember the first time I used my new wand, because it was the first time I experienced multiple orgasms. I now understood why the wand had so many fans. Yes, it was loud and no, it didn’t look anything like the sleek and classic sex toys I was more familiar with, but when it came to deep and rumbling vibrations, nothing else could compare. Mains powered magic wands are in a league of their own when it comes to power and intensity. My experience with my first wand vibrator taught me that I should not judge a book by its cover. It was difficult to care about all the things the wand wasn’t, when it was just so damn good at what it was. As I experienced my third orgasm of the evening, the last on my mind was how “functional” it looked.
I purchased the wand vibrator because it was well known for its insanely deep and powerful vibrations and it certainly delivered, but I soon discovered it was more than the one trick pony I had pegged it as. The magic wand is much more than a powerful clitoral vibrator and through hands-on experimentation, I learned of all the unique ways I could use it to produce pleasure. Not just for me, but for my partner too. The wand might not be designed for internal use, but it has been designed to massage and stimulate any area of the body below the neck. The powerful vibrations feel just as enjoyable against my partner’s penis and perineum as they do against my clitoris. We both experience multiple orgasms using these vibrators and they are so powerful that they can even get me off when I am not in the mood to get off. The mains powered wands are the only vibrators I can rely on to please me 100% of the time, whether I am in need of an orgasm or a great massage.
Pretty soon I discovered another great advantage to owning a mains powered wand; many companies have designed “made-to-fit” head attachments. These attachments, or caps, fit snugly onto the head of the wand and they come in a wide variety of different textures and materials. I discovered attachments with protruding shafts, designed for internal use and even male attachments, such as prostate stimulators and masturbation sleeves. I could turn my wand vibrator into a variety of different sex toys, each providing its own unique sensations, but all containing those powerful and deep vibrations provided by the wand. As the wand grows in popularity, more companies strive to create new and exciting models, which means more variety in size, shape, power options (e.g. rechargeable wands) and materials used to form the wands head.
Sure, the magic wand, just like many other sex toys, comes with its own unique flaws, so you should definitely research the features and limitations of each model before deciding if it is for you. For me, I feel that the benefits far outweigh the downsides. I now own three different wand vibrators and they continue to hold a special place in my sex toy collection. I will often recommend them. Wand vibrators taught me to avoid being swayed by aesthetics and instead pay more attention to function and how versatile the product could be. Of course, if you don’t enjoy intensely powerful vibrations, have extremely thin walls or are completely new to sex toys, then you might want to think carefully before purchasing (and feel free to get in touch with me if you need any advice). If, like me, you occasionally find yourself wishing that you could turn up your vibrator another power level, then the mains powered magic wand vibrator might just be the sex toy for you.
