Wand by We-Vibe – Test & Review

My Personal Experiences
I knew I was going to love the Wand by We-Vibe. I love wand vibrators, and I love We-Vibe’s products (especially the Tango!) So I had a hunch this combination of two wonderful things would not disappoint. And oh, was I right! As soon as I switched the Wand on, I couldn’t believe the sheer power rumbling through it. I know my body well enough, after testing hundreds of sex toys, to know what will work for me, and I immediately knew the Wand by We-Vibe would be a winner.
How I Use ItUnlike buzzier toys, I do not need to start a session with the Wand at the highest level of power. Instead, I can start with the lower settings and move up through them gradually. The pulsing patterns don’t really do much for me. I know some people like them, but I can pretty much take or leave vibrating patterns. I much prefer to stick to the steady vibrations and slowly ramp up the intensity as I get closer to climax (which happens quickly with this gem of a toy!)
Testing the AppWhen I received this toy, I was still dating my long-distance ex-partner, and we had a lot of fun playing with the app controlled functionality. Them having the ability to control my toy from a distance gave our sexting sessions (a pandemic- and distance-induced necessity) an extra hot edge. However, the toy’s responsiveness was a problem, with it sometimes taking up to 3 seconds to register a change in setting via the app. As someone who is very sensitive to even small changes in stimulation, this was a pretty significant downside.
Using with a PartnerI did try using the Wand during penetrative sex with my nesting partner, but we found it a little too bulky for that purpose. Smaller toys like bullets tend to work best there. Overall, this is a toy best enjoyed as the main event by itself, either by using it on myself or having a lover use it on me. If I’m in the mood for something gentler, I enjoy the flutter attachment, which provides a completely different type of clitoral stimulation. And my penis-owning partner was a big fan of the penis stroker attachment.
VerdictSeriously – the Wand by We-Vibe is so, so good. I still reach for it all the time.
There's a lot to love about the Wand by We-Vibe's design. The broad head offers all-over stimulation, which flattens at the top with a ridge that allows for more direct pressure. The neck is a little flexible, but not so much as to be problematic if you like plenty of pressure. The inclusion of two attachments is an especially nice touch, offering different ways to use and enjoy the product no matter what type of body you have. The curved handle is comfortable and ergonomic to hold. The Wand by We-Vibe is a gorgeous plum purple color and adorned with a decorative pink band at the base of the neck.
Ease of Use
The controls are intuitively placed for easy use on the back of the handle, close to where the user's hand naturally sits. I love that the We-Vibe Wand is joystick controllable, as this allows for an extra level of control over the exact speed. The buttons are simple: an on/off button, a button to scroll through the 10 vibration modes, and then the little joystick to control speed. My big complaint in the ease-of-use department is that it's so heavy. This could be a real problem for people with certain disabilities or who suffer from pain in their hands or wrists. Connecting your Wand to the free We-Connect app offers interesting different avenues of play, especially if you have a long-distance partner (as it can be connected from anywhere in the world). The app is simple to use, but response times are slow, which is frustrating.
The Wand by We-Vibe is an impressively well-made product. It is made of high-quality materials and feels solid and well put together. I've had mine for over 2 years and it has withstood regular use brilliantly and still functions like new!
The Wand by We-Vibe is expensive, retailing for $179. Though it's a high-quality toy, this is still a significant price-tag, especially for those new to toys or on a budget. For this price, I would have also liked to see a storage bag included. That said, the Wand is built to last and comes with two quality attachments, so I can't complain about the value too much.
The Wand by We-Vibe is a product that gets the job done. Its incredibly powerful, rumbly vibrations are seriously impressive and knock my socks off every single time. If you like rumbles and lots of them, you can't go wrong with the Wand. And, since the Wand is rechargeable, you don't have to deal with power outlets or any annoying power cords trailing across your bed! You get about 90 minutes use out of a full charge with the Wand. Given the level of power, it's even relatively quiet. Unlike some wand vibes I've tried, this one doesn't sound like a small power tool!
The Wand by We-Vibe came in an attractive box with a picture of the toy on the front. With that said, it contained what I'd consider to be an excessive amount of packaging. In a world where we are trying to cut down on single-use materials and most of them will be thrown away, I would like to see companies switch to a more eco-friendly way of presenting toys.
Materials and care
The Wand by We-Vibe is made of beautiful and silky-smooth matte silicone. Silicone is body-safe, non-porous, and built to last. You can also use it with all lubricants except silicone-based lubes. The included attachments are also made of silicone, this time in a pretty turquoise color. You can clean your Wand using warm water and gentle soap or a sex toy cleaner. Clean the attachments in the same way.
Though the app functionality and bonus features such as Smart Silence are impressive, the sheer power of the Wand by We-Vibe is its outstanding feature. Whenever I choose rechargeable toys as opposed to plug-in toys, I feel as though I am compromising on power in exchange for convenience. Thanks to this product, that is no longer the case.

How to use We-Vibe Wand
The Wand by We-Vibe takes a little getting used to but is easy once you've mastered the controls. I recommend starting with just the toy itself to see how it feels and find out what settings you like best. Experiment with different ways to hold the toy to see what feels most comfortable for you. Use the bottom button to turn the toy on, then the joystick to scroll through speeds and the upper button to scroll through the different patterns. Once you have got used to using the toy, download the app and follow the instructions to sync it and add your partner if you want to. When using a powerful vibrator like the Wand by We-Vibe, using plenty of lube is always a good idea to make your experience smoother and more pleasurable.
