We-Vibe Tango Glow (pink) and Dusk (gray-blue) Pleasure Mate CollectionI’m in love. Its name is the We-Vibe Dusk, and I’m using it all wrong.

This toy is supposed to be a vibrating butt plug. It looks like a butt plug. It functions adequately as a butt plug. But something compelled me to put this toy in my vagina, and it was absolutely one of the smartest things I’ve ever done. Like, on par with buying my first mug warmer, or thinking “hm, maybe I’ll start a blog.” Immediately, the Tango vibrator in the base nestled up against my clit, so closely that it seemed there was a chance of bringing myself to orgasm without touching anything. Just sitting there like a blob.

Could I do it?

I gripped the Dusk with my PC muscles, pulling it against my clit even more. I took some deep, shaky, slightly-confused breaths, eyes wandering over my computer screen but not actually reading anything. The rumbly vibrations of the Tango, not even turned up to high, reverberated against my clit. It felt awesome. It didn’t take long.

Afterward, I sat there in awe. It was unreal. And I didn’t have to work for it at all. Like, I rightfully did not deserve that orgasm. Which made it even sweeter.

Before I gush any further, let me clarify everything I’m actually reviewing today, which is not just the Dusk but its companion, the Glow G-spot dildo. They’re sold separately for $50 and $60, but together in the We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mate Collection ($150), which comes with the glorious white Tango vibe that fits in each of their holes. This is a wonderful thing, because We-Vibe has finally realized the true power of the Tango — that it can enhance all manner of other sex toys.

Hilariously enough, I thought for sure I’d prefer the Glow. It has that flat tip shape that many G-spots adore, and it does feel quite nice against mine. But the tip is a bit small, the shaft gets wider in a spot that my vagina doesn’t agree with, and grabbing hold of the base to thrust with the toy is pretty awkward. So using it internally is pleasant, but not as effortless and satisfying as, say, using the LELO Ella or PicoBong Moka.

But the Glow can always be used clitorally — if, for instance, the shape of the Tango alone is too pinpoint for you, or its plastic too harsh against your genitals. The Tango is a ridiculously powerful toy, so its vibrations travel well through the silicone. It’s stronger than the LELO Gigi 2 and rumblier than the PicoBong Moka. The trade-off: it vibrates my hand a lot more than a traditional vibrator, and it’s pretty loud.


When I use the Dusk vaginally, I position the Tango the same way it’s shown in my photo above, then insert the Dusk so the flat tip of the Tango rests against my clit. That way the sheath for the Tango is angled toward my body rather than away from it, and it really does snuggle right up against my vulva. For less pressure, you could flip the Dusk around. The Tango could also be shifted in the sheath depending on how much you need it to reach upward.

What’s freakish is how terribly normal these hands-free orgasms have now become with the Dusk. I’ve propelled to a new level of lazy masturbation, and you should probably stage an intervention. I sit there at my desk, legs spread, “working” and whimpering like a sad little puppy. I use my PC muscles to pull the Tango even closer against my clit, squeezing and releasing, working myself into a frenzy. (This toy should seriously be marketed as a kegel exerciser because my PC muscles have never been so toned.) The insertable portion doesn’t do a ton for my G-spot, but my clit is in fucking heaven.

I’m like a dude just waiting for the orgasm I’m certain I will get. The orgasm the world owes me. Like I’m wearing a suit, hands behind my head, self-satisfied smirk on my face, while my secretary blows me under the desk.

For those who require more intense pressure or more movement on their clit, it might not be as good. But for me, the Dusk is what every “hands-free” vibe claims to be and never delivers. It’s what the We-Vibe 4 and LELO Hula Beads wish they could be. It’s what the Aneros Evi should have been. When I stand up and walk around, it doesn’t even budge.

We-Vibe Tango Dusk Pleasure Mate chillin' on my dining room tableOne time, I not-so-subtlely put the Dusk out on my dining room table before my girlfriend Aerie arrived. You know, to make a statement. It worked. Aerie tried it vaginally, became horny, and we had sex. The We-Vibe Dusk totally got me laid.

Another time, Aerie wore it while scissoring me, and while it required a lot of adjustment, it was great once positioned correctly. Then, I wore it while wielding Buck in my Joque harness. Not only did it add to my enjoyment of strap-on play, but Aerie could feel the vibrations in the dildo as well.

I even wore the Dusk while writing this review at Aerie’s place, then after I had my obligatory hands-free orgasm I pulled the toy out, raised it to the skies à la The Lion King, and yelled “DUSK!” I don’t know why. It just seemed like the right response. (Also, I’m convinced you could re-write Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” to be about jealousy over a partner’s over-zealous relationship with their Dusk.)

I guess I should talk about how it fares in my ass. It’s nice. It’s really comfortable and reminds me a lot of the Fun Factory Bootie, although the Tango makes the base a bit bulky and long. The vibrations do not enhance the experience, though. Even on low, they travel more to my butt cheeks than inside me. It becomes unbearably itchy on high. I prefer it as a non-vibrating plug.

A few details diminish my love for the We-Vibe Dusk, but only slightly.

  • The Tango fits too snugly in its sheath and can be hard to wrest out.
  • It’s kinda difficult to change settings because the controls are at the bottom of the toy.
  • The Tango still only lasts an hour on a charge. Sometimes I end up furtively glancing at the clock trying to calculate how much time I have left before its inevitable death.
  • I have to turn the toy off quickly after orgasm because the intensity becomes overwhelming. So I don’t recommend it for secret office wanking unless you have the freedom to suddenly stick your hand down your pants.
  • It turns me into a unintelligible (you should have seen the way I tried to write the word “dudespread” while wearing it) and sweaty mess. But I guess I can take a shower.

Buying the magic combo of Dusk and Tango separately will set you back $130. The whole collection is $150 and includes the Glow (more of a bonus than a necessity), saving you $40 over buying each component individually.

The We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mate Collection is an excellent kit for someone wanting to explore G-spot stimulation, anal play, awesome vibrators, and apparently, hands-free orgasms. Just make sure to thank me each time you come. I have a copyright on Dusk-induced orgasms, you know.

    This changes everything. A new era of hands-free orgasms is now upon us and it is a promising one.

  • Hands-free orgasm?! I need this shit! I want it near my vulva! ASAP! All hail to the new born highness, Dusk! orz

  • I must have the Dusk! Lazy orgasms are my fave, & using it with a strap-on–genius!

  • “It’s what the Aneros Evi should have been.” NAILED IT.

  • Huh. Never occured to me to try it this way; when I use the Tango by myself it’s already hands-free because my labia can keep it in place when I’m sitting or laying. But this would be brilliant for use in a harness, yes yes. Good call!!

  • Whitney M

    You once recommended that I buy the Tango, and since then it has became my favourite method of receiving a guaranteed orgasm (which can be very difficult on antidepressants as you know!). I am so happy I invested in the Tango back then because now I only need to shell out 50 for the Dusk! Guess what’s now on the top of my Christmas list?

  • Wow. Just… Wow. I’m a huge fan of using prostate toys vaginally, but never thought of using a butt plug vaginally. And hands free orgasm? Yes, please! I’m all over that. I’ve already written my review on this set, but I think some extra experimentation is in my future.

  • Now I not only need this set (white Tango!! yes please!!!) but I need a strap on to go with it. Because reasons. Jerking off reasons. Oh my god. This is so exciting!!!

  • This set is waiting for me at a friend’s house and this makes me think that my disused Salsa (it’s just too small for me!) will finally fulfill its orgasmic destiny!

  • Maybe! But it still feels just as small. It just stays in place and doesn’t vibrate your fingers.

  • Perf.

    The dusk sounds like it’d be good for shower sessions, which haven’t been my thing as of yet, but maybe hands free while i go about my other shower business.

  • Pegasister42

    Could you review the picobong transformer? it seems like an awesome idea, but i’d like to know if the motors are any good before getting one.

  • I gave it a quick mini review on my Tumblr. The answer to your question is no, the motors aren’t any good. Oh, and here’s another review I agree with.

  • Pegasister42

    That’s a shame. I was so excited about another yellow toy on the market.

    Does the Dusk or Glow do anything to dampen sensation? I have a friend who likes her tango but finds it can be a bit much on even the lowest setting; I was thinking of getting her the glow if it will provide a bit of cushioning

  • Heaven

    This sounds so neat, I think I need one in my life.

  • bestboyfriendever

    Do you think the dusk could hold the novel creations sensuelle point instead of the tango?

  • The vibration is dampened in the Glow, for sure, so that could totally work! But not really in the Dusk, because the way I position it results in the bare tip of the Tango resting against my clit.

  • Yes, with lube. I don’t have that toy (which is apparently .84″ in diameter), but I do have the LELO Mia, which is .875″ in diameter, and I just made it fit by lubing up the hole first.

  • bestboyfriendever

    Thank you!

  • Pegasister42

    I think she meant using the Glow externally to diffuse the Salsa’s vibrations

  • stellaronan

    How loud is it? Like, could I use it in a quiet office without anyone hearing a suspicious buzzing?

  • I doubt it. It’s audible in a quiet environment on pretty much every setting. You might be able to get away with having it on the first setting, which is just a generic low rumble, but beyond that it becomes iffy.

  • Mia

    Okay, so, I’ve wanted one of these pretty much since I read your review. I work in a sex shop and have fondled the Dusk & the Tango many times, but have so freakin’ many sex toys, I couldn’t quite justify the money.

    BOOM we have a we-vibe training session and they give everyone these. Literally the first time I do when I get home is stick the tango in the dusk and stick the whole thing in my vag.

    Look, I’m a fussy masturbator. I can orgasm in approximately 1.2 positions, have very specific needs, and it doesn’t always happen. I also don’t like super pinpointed vibration and have generally eschewed bullets b/c they just don’t do it for me.

    I’ve used the dusk/tango combo two times and have had two hands free orgasms.

    This changes EVERYTHING.

    Thank you Epiphora <3 You made my vagina very happy.

  • Mia


    I timed it this time, out of curiosity. FOUR MINUTES.


  • You’re MY hero!
