My Personal Experiences
Breaking the IceMy personal experience with the Arcwave Ion was beyond imaginable. I had never thought that I would personally become so infatuated with using one sex toy and completely ignoring all of the others in my inventory. Initially, I was hesitant to use this toy as it seemed all too intricate for me, from the open-faced design, strange, sleek design that looks a bit like the Aliens head from the movie Alien, and the concept of frenulum stimulation; I may be a male but I did not know at the time where or what the frenulum was. All of these pieces greatly overwhelmed me but I was eager to give it a try.
Utterly CaptivatedAfter a few attempts at using it was not finding much pleasure in the pulsating airwaves sent from the Arcwave, and quickly switched to my other toys to make me orgasm. After a couple more tries with the Arcwave, I was able to find the golden spot, the spot that simultaneously made me feel like I had to pee myself, that is where I quickly became infatuated and obsessed with the Arcwave and the way it made me feel. By stroking up and down about half an inch from my frenulum slowly and rapidly, I was able to achieve mind-blowing full-body orgasms that made me cum more than I ever have. With the easy access controls and clean-up afterward, this is my favorite toy in my whole collection!
The Arcwave Ion is made of medical-grade silicone and designed with the penis in mind, seeing as it is a male masturbator. It looks incredibly aesthetically pleasing, almost like it was modeled after the head of an Orca. It is streamlined and futuristic and truly one of a kind in the world of male masturbators. The masturbator itself fits the hand perfectly with easily accessible buttons and the two-tone black that perfectly split the toy in half and are different materials adds to the aesthetic of the futuristic toy in your hands. When in use the Arcwave Ion feels amazing, provided you are using plenty of lube of course, as it fits your penis loosely with room to move around and adjust at your own free will.
Ease of Use
The Arcwave Ion is incredibly easy to use in all aspects. Turning on the Arcwave consists of long pressing the sensitivity up or volume up button which increases the strength of the air coming from the porthole located directly underneath where the frenulum would be placed. Afterward, you will hear it start up and blow air out briefly before going silent, this is the indicator that the device is now ready for use. Using the Arcwave is incredibly easy after turning it on. You simply apply lubricant to the chamber, slip your penis inside and place your frenulum underneath the porthole on the bottom side of the toy. Your hand should be conveniently placed with the two control buttons where your index and middle finger are which control the increase in air power or the decrease of the air hitting the frenulum to increase stimulation.
The Arcwave Ion is of the highest quality of any sex toy that I have ever reviewed and used in my life. With the materials being Medical-grade silicone and body safe ABS plastic, paired with the aesthetic and sleek design and form factor, the Arcwave provides a luxury and high-class male masturbator experience to those using it. The Arcwave is incredibly sturdy and backed by the ABS plastic whereas it is lined, and the upper part of the sleeve is made with medical grade silicone. This is an incredibly loud male masturbator and cannot be used if you live with other roommates, a college dorm, with your parents, I am fortunate enough to live on my own and the sound resonates and reverberates off the walls as I am using the toy so do take that into account when thinking about purchasing the Arcwave.
The Arcwave Ion off of the direct company website retails for $199.00 USD. Although the quality of the Arcwave is impeccable and provides many features such as 8 stimulation modes, a 60–70-minute run time, 2 hour charge time, a 2-year warranty from the date of purchase, the storage and charging base, charging cable, a sample of Pjur lube and the stroker itself. For all of this being included, the luxury experience of opening the box, as well as the quality of the toy itself I personally do think it is worth spending the 200$ for. I have been using this toy and this toy alone for approximately 4 months. Mind you I have a plethora of fleshlights, dildos, penis pumps, and other male masturbators. Nothing has been able to provide the sensation that the Arcwave has, and if it means paying $100 dollars more than most standard male masturbators such as Fleshlights which commonly retail at about $90-100, then so be it.
The pulsating airwaves provided by the Arcwave are incredibly strong and stimulate not only your frenulum but your entire body. The Arcwave is incredibly loud, especially at the 8th highest setting which is the maximum stimulation you can achieve from the male masturbator. The battery never once got hot and I normally used it for 30-40 minutes at a time and it has a 2 hour 60-70 minute battery life. It did not hurt to use at all as the Arcwave coats your penis with soft, silky, and medical-grade silicone to ensure safety and protection when using the Arcwave Ion. The recharging time for the Arcwave Ion as listed on the products website is 2 hours.
The Arcwave Ion comes in a white box that is seemingly the Rolls Royce of packaging when it comes to male masturbators. It is matte, sleek, and elegant and unfolds on a hinge to unveil the products and the accessories included inside. It provides descriptive and aesthetic icons and images to showcase the product and I’m glad Arcwave put this much time and effort into packaging.
Materials and care
The Arcwave Ion is made of medical-grade silicone and body-safe ABS plastic. It can be twisted apart from the electrical component in order for easier clean up. Since the medical grade silicone is non-porous it can be washed with soap and running water in order to provide a hygienic surface for the next time you use the male masturbator. It can then be reattached to the electrical component and placed in the charging station with the DryTech stick where it can help absorb any lingering moisture and humidity.
The special feature of the Arcwave Ion is its unique Pleasure Air technology. Based entirely on pulsating airwaves aimed at the Frenulum located underneath the Penis Head, the Arcwave sends out air instead of vibrations or rocking back and forth motions like other male masturbators. Making the Arcwave truly the only male masturbator of its class.

Although pricey, I believe the quality and what is included in the Arcwave as well as the experiences you will have far outweigh the cost, and I strongly recommend this to intermediate individuals looking for a new experience.
