My Verdict

The Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen is unlike any other vibrator I own in my collection. The wand is as powerful as a traditional wand but offers a unique experience being ergonomic to hold and offering deep sensations through oscillation movements in the wand's head (underneath the silicone plate). I thoroughly enjoy how the oscillations can be increased by multiple levels and reach to a very powerful level. I love how easy to maneuver the light Pulse Queen is during partner play; I don't have to find just the right place for the oscillating plate because the plate is broad enough to cover an area of skin where I can let go and not have to think about placement so much. In summary, if you are looking for a lightweight, wand toy that delivers a powerful, unique sensation, I highly recommend the Pulse Queen!

About The Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen

The Pulse Queen doesn't vibrate like a traditional vibrator but uses high amplitude bassy oscillations that penetrate deeper into the body. The wand has 9 oscillating speeds and 7 vibration modes with adjustable frequency. There is a silicone soft plate in the head of the wand that oscillates (the plate measures about 2.5" long by 1.5" wide and 3/4" high). The wand is ergonomically designed to be held in your hand and to hug your body when you use the wand. You can use the Pulse Queen during solo play or in partner play. The Pulse Queen is made of body safe silicone and ABS plastic and is lightweight, rechargeable, and 100% water-proof.

Personal Experience

My Personal Experiences with Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen

A New Vibe in the World of Wands

Wand-type vibrators have never been my favorite. I prefer toys that can be used in solo or partner play where they can easily fit in-between bodies, positions, or in my hand. However, the Pulse Queen really did live up to its promise of reinventing the wand. I enjoy how easily this wand fits in my hands and it is surprisingly light for a powerful wand toy compared to other wand-type vibrators I’ve tried. I was delighted to be able to use this toy in partner play as well; I found the wand worked well for many positions, with penetration or without. The Pulse Queen has three different raised buttons: an “up” and “down” button to toggle through intensities and one button for turning the device on/off and to toggle through the patterns. I love, love how the patterns are separate from the “up” and “down” buttons, where I can easily toggle up and down and avoid the patterns (I’m not much one for patterns myself).

The Vibes are Delightfully Distinct

I prefer rumbly, medium to strong vibrations and the wand delivers on this front as well. Although the vibrations are delivered through oscillations, the vibes have a similar effect as rumbly vibrations (penetrating deeper into the skin) and the top speeds of the oscillations are powerful but not so powerful where the vibrations are felt much in the wand’s handle, which can be a complaint with other powerful wand vibes. Also, the vibrations cover enough area where I don’t have to think too much about where I need to position the wand in order to receive adequate vibrations, whereas with small vibes during play, I can have difficulty finding just-the-right-place to receive adequate stimulation. I love how I can sink into the delightful oscillations and not think too much while using the Pulse Queen.

Design

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Design

The Pulse Queen generally feels lovely, and its visual look is distinct and pretty. The wand has ergonomic smooth ridges and curves making the design look sleek and concurrently easy to hold. The wand's silicone is a light sea green color — I certainly appreciated this color amongst my collection of pink and purple toys! The ABS plastic on the handle (where the buttons of the device are located) is an artistic fading of black and green colors. The buttons on the ABS plastic handle portion are raised and grey in color, a color choice distinct enough where I can find the buttons easily but doesn't distract from the overall design's color theme.

Ease of Use

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Ease of Use

The Pulse Queen ranks high on the ease-of-use rating. The wand is easy to hold and easy to operate: The wand is ergonomically shaped to fit in your hand during solo play or partner play. The buttons on the wand are easy find and also easy to use and press. I do find the vibrations start at medium-low and so I recommend warming up before using the wand, if you are sensitive. In addition, if you grind against the plate, the oscillations stop, so you have to become accustomed to not placing a high amount of pressure on the plate itself. Lastly, the charging of the device is through inserting a USB charger into the hand's end; I find this type of charging not as convenient as an external type of charging system.

Quality

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Quality

Overall, the Pulse Queen is effortless to use and feels like a high-quality product. The wand is pretty to look at and the vibrating plate of the wand is integrated well into the handle of the wand (the head and the wand are covered completely in silky silicone). The handle has a smaller piece of ABS plastic that is also smooth and has an artistic touch of a blend of colors, which makes it pretty and soft to hold. However, between the ABS plastic and the silicone of the wand, there is a very small gap; The gap doesn't affect the function of the wand but makes the wand more difficult to clean. Furthermore, a high-quality charging system would offer external charging, whereas with the Pulse Queen you have to insert the charger through a hole in the silicone itself.

Price

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Price

The Pulse Queen is a more expensive vibration toy (though not the most expensive wand-type vibrator out there), but I feel the toy is worth paying more than a moderately cost wand. The wand is powerful, pretty, ergonomic, and offers a unique experience for advanced or new vibrator users alike. The Pulse Queen has easy controls, is easy to handle, and can be seamlessly used in solo or partner play, and the oscillating plate of the wand's head offers a new broad, rumbly, deep sensation. The wand also comes with a one-year warranty. I would definitely pay the higher price tag to have this in my toy collection, as it will be one of the vibe wands that I regularly power up and put into play mode!

Performance

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Performance

The Pulse Queen promises to be a wand that offers a new vibration-like sensation experience through "pulse plate technology" through oscillations that are under the silicone head (plate) of the wand. I do find the sensation to be a unique experience because the rumbles of the oscillation plate are broad and simultaneous powerful; Combined with the ergonomic shape of the Pulse Queen, this wand is indeed a new experience I thoroughly enjoyed. In addition, the device never got hot when I used it, the battery life is 40 minutes long, and the charging takes only about two and a half hours. The wand is not the quietest vibrator out there but the sound it emits is still moderate on the scale of vibe loudness.

Packaging

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Packaging

The Pulse Queen comes in a paper box with a picture of the wand on the front of cover. I found this packaging attractive and eye-catching (there are splashes of color that give the presentation vibrancy), but I do prefer to see the toy I'm buying through a clear, plastic window. I feel boxes that do have a clear covering allow the toy to be show-cased and displayed too.

Materials and care

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Materials and care

The Pulse Queen is made of body-safe silicone and ABS plastic. The wand feels and looks high-quality: The silicone of the wand is very silky and the handle of the wand (the ABS plastic) is smooth to the touch. The wand is 100% waterproof, and you can use a toy-safe cleaner and rinse to keep the Pulse Queen clean. Overall, the toy is easy to clean except the handle's buttons and the gap between the ABS plastic and silicone require extra diligence to keep clean around. For the buttons and the gap as described, I would recommend a Q-tip or other small cleaning instrument to assure a more thorough clean. The wand can be stored in the black, draw-string fabric bag it comes with.

Sex Toy Enthusiast and Health Advocate: Sex positivity was a journey I fully embraced after my initial awakening. I didn’t have my first orgasm until I was 30 with the help of a little bullet vibrator. Now I’m an enthusiastic sex toy fan and user. I’m also queer, nonbinary, and have explored sex and intimacy with all varieties of genders. I work in education and public health, so sex toy safety is a special interest of mine. I thoroughly enjoy connecting folks with fun and safe toys—just call me the vibrator match maker!
