We-Vibe Jive — Test & Review
Table of contents (16)
Did the We-Vibe Jive live up to my expectations?
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.
What I like/dislike about the design
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.
My User Experience Unveiled
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.
Review of the Quality
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.
Save or splurge: Looking at the price tag
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.
How I think the We-Vibe Jive performed
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.
A closer Look at it’s packaging
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.
Reviewing the Material Choices and Care Guidelines
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.

We-Vibe Jive vs. Lovense Lush 3The Lush 3 is pretty similar to the Jive, but it’s got a bigger, more bulbous design that’s great for deeper G-spot stimulation. The We-Vibe Jive and the Lovense Lush 3 are app-controlled; however, the Lovense sex toys are known for better app connectivity, so if you are after reliable long-distance fun, I would recommend the Lovense Lush 3. On the other hand, the We-Vibe Jive is smaller, making it a much more comfortable choice if you are into public play or are new to insertable toys.
We-Vibe Jive vs. We-Vibe Sync & We-Vibe ChorusThe main difference between the We-Vibe Jive, the We-Vibe Sync, and the We-Vibe Chorus is their stimulation. The We-Vibe Jive is an egg vibrator that is designed for G-spot stimulation, it has a special tail that can be used for clitoral vibes, and the We-Vibe Sync and the We-Vibe Chorus are focused specifically on delivering deeper vibes to the clit. They are made to add extra vibes during penetrative play, while the We-Vibe Jive is made for more for solo internal massages.
We-Vibe Jive vs. Lelo Tiani 3Regarding functionality, the We-Vibe Jive and the Lelo Tiani 3 serve different needs. Unlike the Jive, the Tiani’s purpose is enhancing penetrative play; that’s why its G-spot stimulator is smaller and flatter, making it easier for a penis or a dildo to enter. Another thing is the control, The Jive offers much more versatility than the Lelo Tiani. The Jive is an app-enabled feature that allows you to share the fun with your partner anywhere in the world, while the Tiani 3 only has a remote control. Overall, if you are looking for a luxurious small wearable vibrator that will add some buzz during penetration, the Lelo Tiani 3 is the best vibe for you, but if you want a comfortable love that will bring intense vibrations to your sweet spots that can be controlled via an app, then the We-Vibe Jive should be your new vibrator!
ConclusionIf you want versatile yet simple luxury, go for Tiani 3; for app-controlled versatility and deep internal massage, choose the Lovense Lush 3; for intense clitoral vibrations, choose the We-Vibe Sync or We-Vibe Chorus. And if you want the best toy for public play or for beginners who want to experiment with insertable vibrating sex toys, go for We-Vibe Jive.
