We-Vibe Touch X — Test & Review
Table of contents (16)
My Personal Experiences
We-Vibe was my “gateway drug” into the world of pleasure products many years ago. I loved their sleek, simple, and body-safe materials, and the Touch X has gone above and beyond that. This simple, multitasking vibrator is powerful, discreet, and practically silent. If you’re looking for your first vibrator or your fifteenth, I promise We-Vibe’s Touch X will be a great addition to your sex toy treasure chest. We-Vibe consistently impresses me. While they offer the versatility and accessibility that only an app can provide to kinky-hearted and long-distance lovers alike, they also know when to take it back to basics. That’s what the Touch X is: an elevated, simplified, ideal general-purpose external vibrator. I had a few fun romps with this sleek and robust vibe. It’ll be a fabulous new addition to my sex toy collection!
First ImpressionsOnce I finally had time, I set the Touch X up to charge. It features a nearly universal charging cord for sex toys, the magnetic style. This toy is fully submersible and can be used in the bathtub, shower, or wherever you want it to go! I also marveled at the simplicity of it. This powerful vibe has a rounded end and a pointed one. However, the entire toy vibrates not just one single end. That means it’s ideal for any body out there. Another thing I noticed is that the packaging didn’t say anything about the smartphone application, and I breathed a sigh of relief. Although We-Vibe’s app has worked for me on four continents with partners thousands of miles away, I was grateful for a simple toy designed for personal intimacy.
Description and Personal FeelingsAfter charging and washing the toy, I quickly turned it on and noticed the intensity of the vibrations. It was incredibly “buzzy,” for lack of a better descriptor. Even on the first setting, this toy packs as much intensity as its larger and noisier counterparts. It has an intuitive three-button design that lays nearly flat against the surface of the vibrator. This is great for those who spend a lot of time with a single toy and get familiar with its design. But the first use made it a little tricky to remember where to click when I needed that extra push. But it won’t be an issue if you’re more observant than me (that can be a low bar). While writing this, I went back through the vibration modes, pulse, wave, cha-cha, tease, tempo, heartbeat, and the classic vibrate. It’s been several minutes since I turned it off, and I still feel my hand vibrating! While it may look commonplace and uninteresting, the simplicity makes this toy remarkable.
The We-Vibe Touch X is visually stunning. Many other toy companies have tried to come up with ideal clitoral vibrators, but We-Vibe always takes the cake. The pointy tip is great for pleasure mapping your body, clitoral stimulation, nipple play, and anal opening stimulation. It's a firm tip but has a little give, so it's a crowd-pleaser. The simple design also makes it ideal as a lay-on vibrator. It can nestle into your panties easily for a quick, fun round while watching something steamy with your partner. It's also designed so that the vibrations can be shared. Suppose you're in the missionary position or something similar. In that case, it can be placed on the female's pubic mound so the partner on top can share the vibrations.
Ease of Use
I love that this simple vibrator didn't come with an app. Using an app during masturbation and solo sex can often be confusing or distracting. We-Vibe's app features so many different options I often struggle to know where to start. The Touch X is different, and it, thankfully, only has three buttons and a charging point. That's it, and frankly, that's more than enough. I also love that it immediately defaults to the solid vibration mode when first turned on. Consistent stimulation is my preference, although the ability to switch between each mode at just the click of a button is a great selling point. While there are countless vibrators out there with 20+ patterns and modes for you to choose from, I'm crippled when I have to go through all that work. What if I like pattern 4 to get started and pattern 19 to tie things up? I'd be clicking through patterns for ages! With just the 7 modes, this is an ideal design for me.
The quality of all We-Vibe toys is outstanding. They never compromise on safety, only using body-safe, phthalate, and latex-free silicone in their products. The bright coral color and design are inviting and friendly, and the silicone is soft to the touch. With a two-year warranty, this is an excellent purchase.
For $99, this toy is a steal. You don't have to worry about safety when you shop with a big brand name like We-vibe because they're consistent across the board. Also, it's much stronger than many similar vibrators I have in that size. The ability to chuck it in your purse in the hygienic storage bag is another feature that needs to be highlighted. Because if you're popping over to someone's for a quick date and want to bring a surprise, no one would notice this in your purse. All in all, it's definitely a worthwhile buy.
After use, I left the We-Vibe Touch X on a stopwatch to see if it held up to the promised 2-hour performance time. Yes, I am thorough when it comes to toy testing. This was after use as well. That thing kept buzzing for a solid 1 hour and 48 minutes. The best part? Other than my cat's consistently confused hunting around the house looking for the source of the vibrations. It didn't slowly lose power. It kept going at FULL force until the very last second.
My first impressions of the packaging were, as always, 10/10. We-Vibe's consistent and easily recognizable design makes it easy to spot their products in any adult store. Inside the box were the luscious vibe, two manuals, a sample of lube, and the discreet, sumptuous carrying bag. The charging cord is sturdy and reliable, so you shouldn't worry about damaging it easily.
Materials and care
Made from body-safe silicone and featuring a magnetic charging point, the Touch X couldn't be easier to clean. The steps are easy and should be done before and after each use. Just rinse the toy in warm water, spray on some sex toy cleaner, wait a few seconds, and rinse it off. Dry it thoroughly before storing it in the hygienic bag that came in the packaging. As usual with silicone toys, don't store two silicone toys so they touch, as that can compromise the quality of the materials. Keep them in individual fabric bags in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight. Also, make sure to only use water-based lubricants with a toy that has silicone. It isn't worth the risk of damaging such a high-quality product.

I think that the We-vibe Touch X is an excellent product overall. The only reason it isn't a 5/5 is that it is relatively limiting in terms of where and whose body it can be used on/in. Also, the fact that it isn't some earth-shattering design. This is a very high-quality product that is both powerful and approachable even for a vibrator beginner. If you're looking for an entry-level sex toy, then then We-Vibe Touch X is the product you're after!

How to use We-Vibe Touch X
The We-Vibe Touch X is a very simple vibrator to use, but it can be used in many, many different ways! Here's a quick guide to give you inspiration... When you first take your We-Vibe Touch X out of the box, charge it up fully. Simply plug in the USB magnetic charger and attach it to the two small metal bits at the rounded end of the toy. Then, when it is fully charged, give it a quick wash. While it should be relatively clean due to the hygienic seal on the box, it still may have residual manufacturing materials on it. So rinse it off in warm water with some sex toy cleaning spray.
