We-Vibe Melt – Test & Review
My Personal Experiences
I went into this testing experience of the We-Vibe Melt with a bunch of excitement and anticipation for a high-tech, high-performance sex toy. I’d never managed to get my hands on an app-controlled toy before, and I was ready to be blown away by the sheer futuristic-ness of it all! I mean, a sex toy with Bluetooth?! What a time to be alive. There was just one thing that dampened my excitement a little, and that was that the We-Vibe Melt is a clit sucking toy. I know, I know, they’re beloved by women everywhere and a godsend for those who need some good clitoral stimulation to orgasm, but I just haven’t had any amazing experiences with them. I already own a Satisfyer Pro 2, and I don’t hate it, but it’s just never been my go-to toy either for solo sessions or with my boyfriend. It’s something about the more direct clit contact paired with the lack of vibrations that I haven’t been able to get on board with. But, with all that being said, I wanted to go into this with an open mind! Perhaps the We-Vibe Melt would blow me away with its ergonomic design and clit sucking technology and I’d become a true convert…
Using the We-Vibe MeltOnce I’d done all the necessary prep and lubed up sufficiently, I got down the real testing phase. And… it was a mixed bag. There were some parts I loved. The shape and size of the ‘mouth’ was totally different to what I was used to, and it felt great! The smaller, oval-shape enclosed my clit almost perfectly, which meant I could really feel the air pulses and suction. I didn’t really get the feeling of it imitating oral sex, as some claim it to, but that wasn’t necessarily a negative. It was its own sensation! Because of the close contact it was making with my clit, the feeling was intense. I had to go slowly and build-up the intensity level, but I didn’t make it more than about half-way up before the big O happened. It was efficient in that way, but in reality it was more of a game of trying not to get too overwhelmed. In the end, the orgasm it gave me was nice, but it wasn’t mind-blowing. There was just too much back and forth involved and it ended up being a quite abrupt but subtle ending. I understand that might seem like a bit of an oxymoron, but I feel that the lack of vibrations meant that I couldn’t build-up to an orgasm the way that I’m used to.
And Then Came the App…Of course, the We-Vibe Melt’s biggest selling point is that it can be app-controlled. I’d heard about the We-Connect app before, and all of the wonderful things that you can do with it, from creating your own vibration patterns to syncing your toy to music! So, you can probably imagine that I was pumped to give it a spin. In the box were simple instructions on how to pair the Melt with your phone, which were easy and quick to follow – just download the app and press and hold a button and you’re basically there. There was no tutorial on how to actually use the app once you’re in, however, and that’s when my problems began. I started off by moving the intensity level up and down, which felt smooth and easy. So far, so good. Then I moved on to trying to create some patterns. It seemed easy – go to ‘My Vibes’ and ‘Create Your Own Vibe’. I made one, but when I tried to use it I realised that it wasn’t doing anything. Then I tried again, only to find that that function had disappeared completely! After their help center turned up nothing, I did some Googling to find out that most of the cool things the We-Connect app promises? Only available for vibrating We-Vibe toys. What a bummer. But it didn’t end there. Having accepted my lot of only controlling the intensity levels remotely, I suddenly couldn’t even do that! The Melt disconnected, and I had to go into my phone’s Bluetooth settings to reconfigure it. While I did get it going again, I was starting to really dislike the whole experience. But this was a thorough review, and there was one thing left to test: controlling the Melt over wifi. I commandeered my boyfriend’s phone and installed the We-Connect app, then invited him to connect with me. The process was not intuitive at all, and took a lot of back and forth and a bit of random pressing to figure out. Then I handed him the reins and let him see what was what. As well as being able to control the intensity levels from the other side of our apartment, he could also message, voice call and video call me. All of these features seemed to work fine when we were connected, but we experienced occasional connection-losses on both his end and mine. Not quite the sexy and romantic experience we were hoping for – I’d rather just use it the old-fashioned way.

In the end, judging the We-Vibe Melt turned out to be pretty difficult for me. Still, my main mission here is to give you an objective review based both on my personal experiences with the product as well as my expertise on sex toys and sexual wellness. Did it feel good? Yes! The We-Vibe Melt got me there every time I used it with its powerful and unique stimulation abilities. It was actually a nice change of pace to take things slowly and build-up to a soft yet great-feeling climax, rather than going in for the kill with a high-speed vibrator. And the piece of kit itself is incredibly well-made and high quality – a really special thing to have in your nightstand. Were there things that made it disappointing? Also yes. Using the We-Vibe Melt with the We-Connect app was a thoroughly frustrating experience and not one that I’d like to replicate in a hurry. Additionally, if it had worked as promised, I’m still not sure that I would make use of the remote control options. Controlling the intensity or patterns of my toys is something I feel that only I can do with any great success – my boyfriend is great in many ways but he doesn’t know what’s going on inside me at each exact moment. Do I think the We-Vibe Melt is worth buying? Yeah, it could potentially be a great companion for some clitoris-owners. If you love clitoral stimulation and/or dislike vibrations, the Melt could work like a dream. It’s still a fantastic clit sucker option, and I would recommend checking it out further and seeing if it could be for you.
How to use We-Vibe Melt
Each clitoris works in a slightly different way. For some people, the magic can happen almost as soon as the clitoral stimulator is in place, for others it might require a little more experimenting, and for some, it might not be the right match. Here are some simple steps to follow for the best results with your We-Vibe Melt...
