Being a regular on the Lovehoney forum, I’ve witnessed people get wands left, right and centre but I’ve never been bothered by them. Sure, I was intrigued by this powerful, expensive beast but the size and being told about the noise always put me off actually buying one for myself. But an opportunity arose enabling me to get one so I just went for it.
How it works
So the Deluxe Magic Wand is a mains powered “massager”, Lovehoney’s answer to the Original Hitachi Magic Wand (initially designed for the purpose of back massage), which is only available in the USA. The Deluxe Wand has a large head with a flexible neck which delivers the powerful vibrations and is easily controlled by a scroll wheel. It has a UK plug and a 1.8 meter long cable – which sounds like a lot but really isn’t. The body of the wand is made out of plastic but also has this lovely texture to it & features the red Lovehoney heart. The head is also made out of plastic, but the flexible neck looks like silicone so I’d recommend using water-based lubricant with this toy.
I knew it was going to be bulky and probably heavy but I wasn’t expecting it to be as heavy as it is. The head is big, you can definitely tell that this wasn’t designed as a sex toy initially. I haven’t used it as a back massager yet but I can definitely see that it will be perfect to reach because of the sheer size of it.
It’s so loud…
To begin with, the Deluxe Wand is so quiet, it made me wonder if some people had super-hearing or I was going deaf! It gets louder – much, much louder as you turn the power up. This is by far the loudest toy I have ever come across. The first setting makes the whole thing shake, not vibrate and is gentle enough to ease you into the beastly power you’re about to be subjected to. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about so I cranked it up to what I thought was the highest setting – but the wheel just kept scrolling and scrolling and I kept thinking “Surely it can’t get more powerful or louder than this?!” Oh but it can, and it did. I’m not 100% sure what I expected from the wand but the sheer power genuinely shocked me.
My first time with the wand
The first time I tried the wand, I hated it. It felt heavy, uncomfortable and I just couldn’t relax whilst pressing something I felt I should be singing into to my genitals. I was so incredibly disappointed that it seemed to have worked for everyone else except me. But I was used to bullets on my clit, those teeny, tiny battery operated or rechargeable things that are about 10 times smaller than the Deluxe Wand. There really is no comparison between the precision stimulation offered by bullets and the wide area covered by the head of the wand. This is by far the largest and most powerful vibrator I have ever used – which wasn’t a positive thing at first but it has grown on me.
It took me a while to get used to this toy – to work out the best way to hold it, the perfect place to position it, which setting to use… But once I had all of that down to a T – Wow. Seriously. Once I managed to find the perfect spot and keep the wand there it felt sensational. The vibrations are so deep and rumbly, they travel through the head of the wand so well and feel amazing. I found that the ridges towards the bottom of the head feel better than the smooth top and rocking the wand back and forth slightly helps to achieve a quicker orgasm. This is only comfortable if plenty of lube is used – I wouldn’t advise skimping out here, things honestly get painful when I feel the lube is starting to dry up.
I still can’t stand the wand on its highest setting. Hell, I can only get about 3/4 of the way through before I’m either a post-orgasmic mess or frustrated with an over-stimulated and numb clitoris; because I find it can go either of the two ways if I get carried away and go too powerful too soon. So I tend to stay away from the highest settings to avoid those ‘why can’t I come’ frustrations.
Stuff I don’t like
Something that really annoys me about this toy is that I personally can’t use a dildo with it. I used to be able to use a clitoral toy on its own but I seem to have developed this addiction, this need to be filled by a dildo which is impossible when using the Deluxe Wand because it gets in the way when I’m trying to thrust with a fake cock.
Cleaning is also difficult. I tend to use the ridges which means I get tonnes of lube stuck in between them – it’s almost impossible to get out unless I push it out with my fingernails. But then if the ridges weren’t there I don’t think I’d enjoy the wand as much so I can’t complain really. The Deluxe Wand is mains powered which means you need to be extremely careful when cleaning it. I personally use a spray toy cleaner rather than running water to prevent anything from getting inside and damaging the wand or rendering it unsafe to use again in the future.
This toy could be used by couples or men, although I have no experience with that but I’m sure there are plenty of people who have tried it. There are ways to turn the Deluxe Wand into an internal toy for both men and women, which brings me onto my next point.
There are plenty of attachments that fit the Deluxe Wand – internal as well as external. They fit over the head of the wand to provide additional sensations. The whole range is available to see here, in Lovehoney’s extremely useful guide.
I personally do not get on with the one attachment I own, simply because I don’t like internal vibrations. I also find that I need to have the wand on the highest setting to even feel the vibrations inside, which makes the anal stimulator vibrate like crazy and I really don’t like that.
Deluxe Magic Wand conclusion
The Lovehoney Deluxe Magic Wand is still the one vibrator that gives me the most intense orgasms. Sometimes they’re quick, other times they’re deep and dragged out – it really depends on a number of factors. I have to be in the right mood, the right frame of mind to be able to enjoy the Deluxe Wand. I need to be so turned on I can’t think straight and so relaxed I’m only thinking about sex. I also need to be home alone to use this because of the noise, which doesn’t happen often. There is no way this toy is discreet so if that’s important to you, you’re not looking in the right place.
I certainly wouldn’t recommend the Deluxe Wand to beginners, and definitely not to people who have a sensitive clitoris. However, if what you’re looking for is power then you have probably found your new favorite toy.
The Deluxe Wand is available from Lovehoney.
