We-Vibe Jive — Test & Review
My Personal Experiences
I had never played with a We-Vibe product before, so I was excited to get a feel for the quality of products that they make and how well it would work. I already had the Lovense Lush 3, which is a very similar product, and I was curious to see how the Jive would compare.
Trying it Solo FirstI was very excited to put the Jive into action, so as soon as it arrived, I opened it and put it on the charger. I let it charge for the afternoon and then had some alone time for myself in the evening. I started by applying a little bit of lube to the Jive and putting it in. The app was really easy to download and start using for myself. I was able to work through the different vibrations and patterns and was able to achieve a very nice orgasm on my own.
Bringing in the PartnerI was very excited to give this a try with my husband, so before he went to work, we made sure the app was downloaded on his phone and we had sent the link to him so that he could connect with my user and toy. Once he was on his lunch break, we got on the phone and opened the app to play. It was a little difficult to get the toy to connect to him in the app at first. It kept saying one of both of us was offline, or it wouldn’t send the request for control. We finally got it all synced up and working but as soon as I tried to lock the screen on my phone or it turned off from not being touched, the toy automatically disconnected, and my husband lost control of the toy.
I absolutely love the shape and flexibility of the We-Vibe Jive. I already had the Lush 3, which is a very similar product to this, and I can honestly say that the design of the Jive is much better, The end is wider and more flexible, which allows for easier placement on or off the clit when desired. I think my favorite part about the design though, is the egg shape and silky texture. It is so comfortable to wear in or out of the house and wasn't noticeable or uncomfortable when sitting.
Ease of Use
This is where the Jive fell as little bit short for me. The product on its own is amazing, but the usability within the We-Vibe app with a partner is very difficult. If your sole purpose for this toy is for your partner to control it via the app when they aren't with you, you may find some irritation when trying to play. When trying to connect with my partner we had issues connecting our users and the toy staying connected during play. It was a fairly steep learning curve.
I was very impressed with how expensive and smooth the Jive felt when I first pulled it out of the packaging. It is somehow very flexible, yet sturdy at the same time. I have already used this multiple times and I don't anticipate much wear and tear as I continue to use it.
The price for We-Vibe Jive would definitely be considered expensive. I am willing to spend $100+ on a toy if the quality, durability, and excitement is there. I 100% felt like the Jive covered all of those aspects as far as the product itself. The app is where the product fell short for me, but that is always something that can be improved overtime without me having to buy a new version of this toy.
When it was just me using the app and the toy myself, the Jive fully met my expectations. It was fairly easy to control once I played around in the App for a little bit. There is an option to create a playlist for yourself so you can set the vibrations and then leave it and get on with what you are doing. As far as your partner controlling the toy for you from their phone goes, it fell very short for me. I tried to play with my partner in the app multiple times and we were not very successful either time. It would have trouble connecting or staying connected to the toy while trying to play. It got to the point where there was so much stopping to try and figure out what was going on that the arousal was kind of ruined.
The packaging was perfect! It came with everything that you could possibly need to start playing with the toy, including a little sample packet of lube.
Materials and care
As far as materials go, the Jive is made of high quality silicone and can be submerged in water, so it is very easy to clean. I use a fragrance free body soap to wash mine, but there are a lot of toy cleaning options online if you want something sold specifically for toys. There is also a nice silky storage bag that I keep it in to protect it was any external damage when it isn't in use.

Overall, the We-Vibe Jive as a product alone is amazing!! I like the shape, feel, and charger connection way better with the Jive than my Lush 3 for Lovense. If you are only wanting this toy for solo play then I would fully recommend choosing this one for that. If the app would have been easier to navigate and didn't have so many connectivity issues, this easily would have outranked my Lush 3. I would be willing to re-review this section for this toy if the app has some major improvements made.
