Review: (Hitachi) Magic Wand Plus

An upgraded version of the classic Magic Wand, with vibrations ranging from “tantalizing rumble” to “buzz your bush off.”

Last updated:

There are still people making good decisions in this world. The reason I know this is because the Magic Wand Plus exists.

The Magic Wand Plus is an upgraded version of the Magic Wand Original, the classic 50-year-old “back massager” famous for “relieving aches and pains.” We’re not supposed to call it the Hitachi Magic Wand anymore, precisely because Hitachi was starting to sense those suggestive quotation marks, but it remains colloquially known by its former name — and forever revered for its ability to cause near-instantaneous orgasms. The cat is out of the bag, so to speak, and it’s never going back in. (Uncharacteristically.)

But updating anything without ruining it is an art form. You run the risk of merely reminding people how much more they loved the original, especially when something is a beloved and established piece of popular culture. Case in point: me at the theater seeing the Lion King re-make, realizing maybe I didn’t want to see hyper-realistic animal mouths moving in such an unsettling, uncanny valley way. I’m sure the folks who made The Lion King are fine people, but in the push toward cutting-edge innovation, something was lost.

Lucky for us, Vibratex is careful with the Magic Wand, and their upgrades to it have never felt superfluous. In 2013, they reinforced the inner workings of the original and removed Hitachi’s name, as requested — saving the Magic Wand from extinction. In 2015, they released the revolutionary Magic Wand Rechargeable (MWR), with four vibration intensities rather than two. Finally, the Magic Wand was free of its cord, and it offered lower settings to ease into things. I quickly married mine in an informal orgasm ceremony, and we remain a happy couple to this day.

Now there is the Magic Wand Plus, a corded wand that bridges the gap beautifully. Vibratex didn’t hipsterify the toy at the expense of useful features — it still resembles the classic Magic Wand, but now it has a smooth silicone head and four steady vibration intensities. The cord detaches, if you need that for some reason,1 and it’s compatible with 100-240V electrical systems, so it won’t fry if you use it overseas. Most notably: it’s priced at a cool $75-80, about $50 cheaper than the rechargeable version.

I still haven’t acquired the perfect wine rack for my wand vibrators (I know, a great travesty), so for now I’ve been messily storing them in a heap on my desk, behind my computer monitors. It’s not ideal, but it enables me to grab one at a moment’s notice. For example, any time I so much as glance at pornography on Twitter. It’s right in front of my eyes, what am I supposed to do, suppress my urges!?! My pattern: 1) remember sex exists, 2) grab a wand, 3) pull up some porn, 4) get off through my underwear.

Bonus steps: 5) take a brief break, 6) notice the porn tab again, 7) repeat.

That’s what power does to me. That’s the role wands play in my life, particularly the Magic Wand Rechargeable (MWR). The cost-per-orgasm with that thing is becoming laughable. I got it in May 2015 and I probably have 3 orgasms a week with it, conservatively. Which means we’re down to 17 cents per orgasm, likely less. The MWR is one of my most prized possessions, and the only reason I have not plastered it with cute stickers is because I need it to look pristine for ~professional~ blog photos.

The Magic Wand Plus technically contains the exact same motor as the Magic Wand Rechargeable, but they do not feel exactly the same. The Magic Wand Plus feels somewhat sharper, buzzier, and stronger, particularly on the higher settings. I asked Vibratex about this, and they theorized that the added weight of the rechargeable battery in the MWR slows the motor a bit, creating rumblier, slightly subdued vibes. Seems true. Makes sense.

This disparity only really bothers me between levels 2 and 3, where the leap in vibration intensity seems more extreme on the Magic Wand Plus than it does on the Magic Wand Rechargeable. I wish I could just crack the toy open and re-program an extra level into it. That’s all it needs! Well, that and a longer cord. Why they keep insisting on this 6-foot malarkey, I do not know.

I should also warn you that the Magic Wand Plus has that same ridiculous 20-minute auto shut off “feature”(MISTAKE) that the MWR does, which I suggest you circumvent by training yourself to periodically flick the toy off and on again to reset the timer. It sucks, but it’s doable.

Because the power in this puppy is fucking wild. The highest intensity more or less matches that of the Magic Wand Original,2 and the range from “tantalizing rumble” to “buzz your bush off” is astonishing, especially for the price — this vibrator is cheaper than the Doxy, Le Wand, O Wand, and only $20 more than the classic corded Magic Wand. In my humble opinion, it’s worth $20 merely to avoid watching the vinyl crevasses of your vibrator’s head turn ever yellower with each passing year. Silicone, wow, look at it go! Bleed all over it and worry not!

The power in this puppy is fucking wild, and the range from “tantalizing rumble” to “buzz your bush off” is astonishing, especially for the price.

I also remember what it was like, as a sex toy novice, to try to derive pleasure from the harsh, untempered vibrations of the original Hitachi Magic Wand. To awkwardly buffer my genitals with a towel because internet forums told me I should. The internet wasn’t wrong, either. This lack of vibrational subtlety was always an issue with that first Hitachi — and the reason I refuse to recommend it to sex toy beginners. It’s far too big of a leap from no vibration against your genitals to THE MOST VIBRATION AGAINST YOUR GENITALS.

With its lower vibration modes, the Magic Wand Plus is finally accessible to novices, removing (some of) the elements of overwhelm. It still looks ancient and bumbling, yeah, but now it inflicts pleasure rather than instant vulva itch, and that’s all I ever wanted from it. I didn’t need an elegantly-curved handle or an app or imaginary technology, I just needed that shit toned down a notch. More precisely, I needed that shit to be adjustable.

The Magic Wand Rechargeable is still my fave, because cordlessness sways me very much and the slightly rumblier vibrations win out. But if you don’t mind a cord and the little bit of a power edge piques your interest, or if you simply want to save some money (extremely valid and smart!), consider the Magic Wand Plus.

I’ve come full circle from that person struggling on the couch under layers of towel, as I now regularly utilize wands for stress relief throughout the day. Clitoral stress relief, obviously. Using a wand is not something I must endure but something that adds genuine value to my life, and which wand I grab from the pile on my desk is of less consequence than the security said pile represents. Knowing orgasm is a minute or two away at any given moment is a powerful feeling.

Get the Magic Wand Plus at SheVibe, Spectrum Boutique, Early to Bed, Smitten Kitten, Peepshow Toys, Lovehoney US, Pleasure Chest, Good Vibes, Babeland, or Come As You Are (Canada).

  1. It also clicks securely onto the base so you can’t accidentally yank it out during use!
  2. Although the head of the Magic Wand Original creates a unique sort of whirring movement that has yet to really be replicated.

  1. Commenting because I managed to break my Doxy (D:) and am yet to be able to afford a replacement. Vibrator goddesses, please be kind. <3

  2. OMG BEST NEWS EVER
    I’ve always wanted to try the MW because I love rumbly vibes. But after I felt the display one at my local sex shop, I assumed I wouldn’t enjoy it (without the light dimmer hack) because of it’s crazy power. The new model looks right up my alley, though!

  3. Love the review! I wasn’t a huge fan of magic wands until I started using vibrators 2-3 times a week but now it’s firmly cemented its self as the one toy that will get me to orgasm every time. I’m a little bit in love.

  5. Would love to try one of these! Have you ever reviewed the Wahl Deep Tissue massager, Epihora? The heads are different, and no one seems to make any attachments for it that I’ve found, but it’s by extremely powerful!

  7. What is this, the fourth post reviewing the Hitachi on your blog? Is that a sex blogger record? :p It’s been wonderful to see you bonding with your Hitachi(s) WHILE ALSO RECOGNIZING the reasons you didn’t like it initially and not dismissing your past self entirely!

  8. I have been eyeing this thing up since I first noticed it but didn’t really understand what the difference was besides the head so thanks for the review! I don’t think I can justify buying yet another wand but lord do I want to.

  9. I don’t currently have a wand that works and would love to get my hands on one. This momma needs relief on a daily basis.

  10. Aww geez I want a wand upgrade!

    (Fun fact: my first wand — I think The Original Magic Wand? — came on the recommendation of my then-35yo partner’s OT ((following so far??)), who suggested vibrations, and the wand specifically, as part of his post-stroke rehab. Since he was heading home by then and we knew he was gonna heal fully, that was a fun shopping trip.)

  11. LOL rehab for his HAND. Left that part out. (And it worked! He got full dexterity back, and quickly. 😉 )

  12. holy shit, i gotta get one. i need to experience an orgasm that makes me see god. plus, my job gives me carpal tunnel.

  13. So, it’s basically a rechargeable but cheaper than the original rechargeable? Or it just unplugs in case a tangled mess happens?

  14. You certainly have a way with words. Buzz your Bush off is the best phrase ever. Unfortunately I shave so I dont have one to buzz off lol.

  15. I am absolutely about to go do just this. Happy 2020!! You’ve come so far!!! …I swear I don’t mean that to be an unoriginal joke.

    Edit: okay if you count the “A trans woman’s orgasm savior” post it is FIVE posts explicitly about this wand. Five!!

  16. I never need 20 minutes with the Wand and laughed very loudly at that notion.
    (Please still enter me into your contest. That 3.5 minutes is still very precious to me).

  17. Awesome! I always love reading your Hitachi reviews – they’re a whole genre of comedy omg!

  18. Buzz your bush off made me laugh; my best friend has one of these and it frightens me it is INTENSE.

  19. I need to get my girlfriend one of these. She finally killed her original Hitachi in a spectacular shower of sparks that actually tripped the breakers in our house! We were horrified that we might have to call an electrician and explain!

  21. Definitely rumbly. The power settings don’t really seem to be too intense, sometimes I realize afterwards that it has left me a little numb.

    The Wahl 4340 seems to be the one I have.

    It comes with 3 or 4 different heads, and one of them is a curved disc that I hope to see soon if a suction cup toy will stick to it (it is textured and not smooth, so not sure) and how well that will work.

  22. Great contest! My partner was just saying he wants to make sure we have multiple magic wands in the house haha.

  23. My wife has the same reaction to the original Wand. Which of the ones you’ve tried would you say is the best for actually allowing a range of sensations? And do all the “full size” ones have the same head? Some of the attachments available are….intriguing, but I’m never sure about compatibility.

  24. If there’s something I look forward to being a full on adult is having my own place and privacy so I can have my own wands and vibrators available to use on my desk or sofa any time I want. Piph, you have become an inspiration.

    I certainly want in on the contest. Ever since I found your blog, I’ve been curious about the Hitachi wands. I mean, pop culture had already made me aware of them, but not what they could do, and you opened my eyes.

    And since that moment it very much entered the will-eventually-get-at-some-point-in-my-life-don’t-know-when-but-certainly-some-day sex toy list that has been on the making since I realized sex toys were a thing.

    I actually don’t know if I’m ready for it yet, having had only three off brand vibrators before (sadly, I don’t get much variety on local stores in my city), but I am most certainly eager to launch myself at the prospect of knock off orgasms on the daily

  25. Love the review! I wasn’t a huge fan of magic wands until I started using vibrators 2-3 times a week but now it’s firmly cemented its self as the one toy that will get me to orgasm every time. I’m a little bit in love.

  26. The vibrations are SO RUMBLY that when my partner uses the Magic Wand while I’m inside her, it’s all *I* can do to not climax within 15 seconds XD

    Stellar review as always!

  27. *praise hands* at international voltage compatibility and also more power settings!! Love, an international shy-clitted orgasm-hungry reader

  28. You’re extremely convincing. I need one of these in my life! I’ve purchased all my best goodies per your recommendations. Thanks Piph <3

  29. Thank you for this review! I have been pondering wands, and this helps me break down what I am most interested in!

  30. I haven’t tried the hitachi yet, this could be the perfect opportunity to jump on the magic wand band wagon. I love knowing that it has gentler settings for a warm up.

  31. Oh gosh! Thanks so much for your review! I’ve been wondering what this version of the MW was like! I’m still a tried & true fan of my Hitachi Magic Wand (HV-250R) but, I think I should dig my Rechargeable Magic Wand out and give it another go.

  32. Wow, I feel like there are a couple oboe people in my life for whom the previous cord models where both to expensive and to intense in the lowest setting at first, so Im definitely recommending this to them now! Thanks for the review

  33. You certainly have a way with words. Buzz your Bush off is the best phrase ever. Unfortunately I shave so I dont have one to buzz off lol.

  34. Ooooh FOUR settings. That’s very exciting to me. I’m curious what exactly the purpose is of the detachable cord though.

  35. *praise hands* at international voltage compatibility and also more power settings!! Love, an international shy-clitted orgasm-hungry reader

  36. Hoo boy, I finally just got a place without roommates and now that I don’t have to worry about noise levels, this is looking veeeeeery tempting…

  37. Wait a minute… they brought out a new model?? When did this happen?? I’ve been looking at getting myself one for ages now

  38. I haven’t tried the hitachi yet, this could be the perfect opportunity to jump on the magic wand band wagon. I love knowing that it has gentler settings for a warm up.

  39. Damn, I wasn’t even aware that they had a new one! I’m still loving my Doxy Die Cast, but it’s horrendously expensive if you don’t get it on sale. Would you say its stronger than the Doxy as well?

  40. 20 minutes has never bothered me as I’ve never even come close to having it on for that long. Am I doing the sex wrong? lmao

    Also totally unrelated– is it as loud as the other magic wands?

  41. oh god, i’m still working with the corded one i got back in 2015, though it’s starting to refuse to turn on at the low setting, which is heartbreaking. i am beyond excited about this new one.

  42. It’s always a good day when a new Piph review shows up in my inbox! I’ve always been curious about the magic wand but tbh it makes me nervous

  43. I, too, laughed out loud at this post — It’s far too big of a leap from no vibration against your genitals to THE MOST VIBRATION AGAINST YOUR GENITALS.

  44. A magic wand has been “next” on my list for… awhile. But this one being $50 cheaper might just move that purchase up a bit. (Unless I win one of course haha. Thanks for the chance!)

  45. The magic wand is the toy I have always wanted to try but I’ve always been a bit intimidated by it. Have lower levels for a novice to build up from is PERFECT. Now I need one badly!!

  46. Having my phone read this review to me while I was attempting to chop cabbage was dangerous. giggles and chopping should not mix. Also though, informative. I very much want one of these now.

  47. I’m both fascinated and scared by all iterations of the magic wand. I would love to try one to understand the hype, but it just seems like… a lot.

  48. Im more the rumblier and cordless girl, but not having crevices has advantages. Auto shut off is a waste. Please enter me into your contest

  49. Magic Wands are the lifesavers of my sex life. Sometimes, I come easily with a partner; sometimes, I really really don’t and the ridiculously strong vibrations are exactly what I need.

    (Also, I think I keep breaking mine by squirting on it???)

  50. You wordsmith, I now want this toy more than life itself! Thanks for letting us know about the existence of the rerelease.

  51. For years I thought I didn’t want one, since I was all about waterproof vibes and I thought it would be too strong. Most of my wanking is on land these days since the California drought has me too guilty to linger in the shower anymore. The large, diffuse area of the head appeals to me, and I notice that sometimes lately I feel like I need more power mid-orgasm or I feel like it’ll die on me. So, it may be Magic Wand time for me at last!

  52. 20 minutes has never bothered me as I’ve never even come close to having it on for that long. Am I doing the sex wrong? lmao

    Also totally unrelated– is it as loud as the other magic wands?

  53. I actually won the Magic Wand Rechargeable a year or two ago in one of your giveaways it has become the best power tool in my little toy bag! Had the corded version previously but that hard head made the most annoying rattling sound if I didn’t take my piercing out first or position it just right.

  54. I’ve always been curious about the magic wand but am also a bit afraid… Winning one would be the best and a great opportunity to see what all the love is about! Great review and thanks for the giveaway.

  55. I bought the MWR as a Christmas present to myself this past Black Friday sale which was solely based on your high praises and I am so glad I did. Thank you! To be honest I no longer buy any “mood enhancers” unless you have given a favorable review(s). Again, Thank You!

  56. The magic wand is the toy I have always wanted to try but I’ve always been a bit intimidated by it. Have lower levels for a novice to build up from is PERFECT. Now I need one badly!!

  57. Thanks for your (always) thoughtful review–I’d been wondering about this new wand, and now I’m not sure if I should get this or the Doxy… Please enter me in the giveaway and maybe I won’t have to choose, lol.

  58. You wordsmith, I now want this toy more than life itself! Thanks for letting us know about the existence of the rerelease.

So, it may be Magic Wand time for me at last!

  60. oh YO! when i participated in the kink scene in a place i no longer live, i had the pleasure of using someone’s (very old) OG magic wand pretty frequently, and i miss that bad boy. my clit is not super sensitive so i’ve been searching for something as powerful ever since!! i’m loving the knock down on the price tag on this, i’m definitely gonna have to keep my eye on it. my boyfriend just ordered me a sassy after both my current vibes kicked the bucket, though, so i’m not sure if i’d need it?

  61. I’m kind of surprised to see this move but as someone still using an original, corded and marked with the Hitachi name, I am so down with the silicone head and extra speeds!

    And the cord detaching makes sense to me. Do your older corded ones have a weird and obnoxious tendency to kind of twist all up? Don’t know how else to describe it without taking a photo but is my number one annoyance. Also, I’ve probably told this story before but that twisted up cord was irresistible to my cat when she was younger. I lost my first Hitachi to the cat chewing up the cord. Lol. Well, funny now, devestating at the time.

    Lastly, I so appreciate the effort you go through describing and comparing vibration types. One thing I’ve learned to be true of my body is while I need rumbly like most, I still need a little buzz too? Like some of the most rumbly toys just won’t quite do it for me (super frustrating!) But a tiny bit of buzz is my sweet spot. So while I thought I wanted a cordless one day, this new corded one sounds ideal for me.

  62. To be completely fair, while the too setting is unabashedly intense it’s the god awful sound it makes that’s most frightening and literally sounds like a weed (er, bush? Lol) whacker. Haha. Like when I read that line, I immediately heard that sound in my head.

  63. Totally forgot to say it before but when I saw the mention of the wand wine rack I immediately thought “OMG, GENIUS!” I want one now too. I think I have just enough wands where I would still have room for a few bottles of wine too and the combination absolutely amuses and delights me too.

    Can you imagine- I invite a fab queer woman over for the evening and there’s a wine rack with wands and wine. Next to the bed, obviously. I could be a legend.

  64. Nice! I have the Magic Wand Original, but have been wanting to switch over to the cordless, but then wasn’t sure about that versus the Plus. Thanks for the comparison!

  65. Oh my gosh. Your reviews are my favorite! I kinda wanna try this toy now, hehe 😀

  66. I’d love to try it! Please enter me into the contest! Plus I just started working out and could use a bad ass massager also!

  67. Thanks for the awesome review! I’ve used the rechargeable but was considering buying a replacement, since I’m going to be losing access to it soon. This certainly complicates things.

  68. thank u fr acknowledging the dreaded vulva itch from wands!! it’s the reason i have yet to enjoy a wand and because it’s such a classic it makes me feel “broken”

  69. My setting knob just broke on my current vibrator which is unfortunate because it had a big power range and all were super rumbly. Knowing the magic wand plus can be suitable for people who don’t like intense vibrations from their toys puts me at ease. I despise anything buzzy feeling

  70. I don’t know how it’s 2020 (which, as I type it for the first time, doesn’t seem like a real year/what even is time/life, how, what, wow) and I still haven’t tried a wand. I need to remedy this!

  71. Welp now I’m even more hesitant to purchase one. I want to try it so badly but I’ve been so let down by so many toys that I don’t think my clitoris can take anymore heartbreak. I want power but sometimes more power just equals tingly fingers and a numb vulva. I have a toy named Maude, she has 3 setting #1 way to low #2 almost there #3 fuck it feels like billion bees buzzing me make it stop! That’s how most vibes I’ve tried are for me, either too little or too much and I’m still searching for my perfect in between.

  72. Good article, my wife was thinking of replacing the old original we have with one of those models with more speed, now she only need to decide if she want it cordless or not.

  73. It looks awesome Yay that the Hitachi has gotten an upgrade. I have had the original one for nearly a decade. While I do love it (and other wands), this one sounds like it would be a new favorite to own.

  74. I am intrigued by the Magic Wand but thought it was out as I’m in the UK. I just haven’t been able to get that wand joy with my Doxy but always wondered if I could tap into it with this. Thanks for including international!

  75. 17 cents per orgasm, what a deal!

    I should look into either this or the rechargeable model. Due to medications it’s basically impossible to orgasm. Everything I’ve read says to use the magic wand, but the original is too intense for me. :/

  76. I love reading your reviews, they’re always so fun to real and super useful!
    Plus I really need a good magic want *wink wink*

  77. I don’t know how it’s 2020 (which, as I type it for the first time, doesn’t seem like a real year/what even is time/life, how, what, wow) and I still haven’t tried a wand. I need to remedy this!

  78. Please enter me in your contest! I have the old version of the wand and 2 settings was great when I was on my meds after my hip surgery, but now, WOW the second setting is tooo intense and the first is missing a little oumf!

  79. Good article, my wife was thinking of replacing the old original we have with one of those models with more speed, now she only need to decide if she want it cordless or not.

  80. I have always wanted to try an adjustable Hitachi .I love intense vibration but the 2 is to much. Would you say this one has a 1.5 setting? Cause that would be fantastic to try.

  81. navigating the world of sex toys always seems impossible but your reviews are so honest and accessible that, even with the many awful or unsafe toys there are, i still feel like i can make informed decisions. i dont usually have money to spend on myself so its extra tough.
    thank you for your work, epiphora!

  82. 17 cents per orgasm – awesome pricing!! Now just need to get it down to be able m 2 cents in!!

  83. I’m glad they remade a corded version. I don’t really mind the cord, and I am awful at charging things.
    My oldschool “Hitachi” wand one day decided that ONLY HIGH SPEED was the way to go and I’ve been mad about it ever since. Like, I obviously still use it, but haven’t been mad enough to save up to replace it.

  84. Oh God, I remember using the original Hitachi. My clit throbbed for what felt like hours, and I didn’t even remember the vulva itching until you mentioned it, but yeah. That was a thing too. I felt like I was having an orgasm forced from me, and not in a hot way.

    This is really good timing. I was just looking up the Magic Wand because my ex had one, and God, I miss it. Just being able to be lazy and pull it out and get off in five to ten minutes. Magical. Although it worries me about the 20 minute timer. Even though the Magic Wand has usually done the job by then, there are exceptions to the rule.

    Also, please get a wine rack for your wands. They deserve one. And I really want a picture when you do.

  85. I’ve got the original one (Hitachi) and man do I hate how short the cord is! It was one of my first vibes and I think it’s over 15 years old and still going strong.

    Thanks for your Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale round up. I spent way too much money!

  87. I’m so glad to hear that there is a hitachi for $50 cheaper. I can realistically add it to my toy wishlist now.

  88. I have the original Hitachi Magic Wand. I bought it many years ago. I believe that was when I was living in my first apartment. I remember having an orgasm in a flash. It was way under a minute and blew my sex-toy-inexperienced little mind. It quite literally took my breath away, and I was left wondering, “Holy shit – what was THAT?!” Until then, I had bought only a hard plastic vibrator for $25 at a seedy sex shop near my college campus. Don’t get me wrong – that purple plastic vibrator was my best friend for a long time. I even bought a second one when the first one died. It had many settings – both speeds and patterns – and I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread (until I knew better). I would love to have an updated version of the Magic Wand, especially one w/ a silicone head. That’s really the only thing I could ask for from my original version. It would be nice if it was more… clean. And extra levels of vibration seem like an improvement.

  89. This is my issue. I store the sex toys I use most often in a tote bag, and I wrap the cord around my Hitachi Magic Wand. I don’t know what else to do w/ it, and I really need to think about (discreet) sex toy storage now that I bought a house.

  90. I’m so glad to hear that there is a hitachi for $50 cheaper. I can realistically add it to my toy wishlist now.

  91. How does it compare to a Mona 2? I’ve always wanted a Magic Wand but didn’t like the permanent cord, so I might actually get one now! (Or win one if I’m lucky~)

  92. Okay, I’m opening an online store which will only sell body-safe toys and I thought I had the beginning stock list sorted but now THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.

  94. I once owned a Doxy but I couldnt really handle it. I guess i cant handle this one either :’) Idk how anyone survives this rumbliness on their parts.

  95. I got to try the Magic Wand Rechargeable with my partner recently, and it was nice but SO much to the point of overwhelming and it wasn’t quite satisfying because of that, so this sounds right up my alley tbh. Hope it’s still up to win!

  97. I would absolutely love to win one of these! Its so difficult to buy genuine Magic Wands here in australia and Ive wanted one ever since I first found out about them years ago on your blog—(at least four or five years I think??)

  98. My wife LOVES the Magic Wand, especially with the Blue curved insertable attachment and we haven’t burned it out yet!!!. Always puts a smile on her face. Fun for me too!!!

  99. Oh man the timing of this review could’t be better. I bought a Magic Wand from Good Vibrations about 5 years ago. (my second toy yay!) It was glorious but it only lasted a few months, GV kindly replaced it for me. That replacement has recently started making ominous noises. It’s odd, I’ve read everywhere that these things are supposed to be built like tanks and I’m fairly certain I’m not mishandling it. Still, for how good it is and at this price point I’m not complaining.

  100. Lovely written review as always. It’s odd for me to think that reading toy-review is a stress relieving thing for me now. But you make it so easy to comprehend.
    Also, good luck to everyone else entering in the contest.

  101. Did the contest happen yet? I can’t buy the hitachis anywhere in my country, but it’s the dream!!

  102. Are you going to review the Lora Dicarlo Osé? I’m so curious what you think!

    Also this looks awesome.

  103. Somehow the wands remind me of a dentist’s tool (maybe it’s the coloring?). 😀 Anyway I definitely need some (clitoral) stress relief in my life, so please enter me into the competition! 🙂

  106. I would love to try a magic wand! I had a smaller white label wand when I was younger that I liked until the rechargeable battery went haywire on me. I also bought a mystic wand that I never even got the chance to use because I put the batteries in wrong and fried it TT.TT. Maybe 2020 is the year though!

  107. I’ve never tried what I would call a wand just my Mona 2 and a Womanizer that I still can’t get the hand of.

  108. A vibe wand wine rack is exactly the missing piece of sex positive home furnishing that I need in my life.

  110. I didn’t think I needed another Magic Wand, because I love mine so dearly. Your review leads me to believe I was wrong to think that. Thanks for the excellent (as always) write up!

  111. Oh man, I always find your advice invaluable but this in particular sounds AMAZING. I have always wanted a wand but the intensity is too much for me.

    Came by to say I bought my bf a pure wand for xmas using your black friday codes and he loves it, but I would also love to be entered into the competition, thank you! And thank you! And thank you again.

  112. I got a MWR and…dont love it? Theres something about the texture of the head on the old school non-silicone one that makes my bits happy.

    Also that 20 minute limit sounds awful.

    If I end up winning I will bequeath this gift to a friend who is magic wand-less. Or perhaps to an ex of mine who has 3 older wands that are all in some state of slow death and all sound a little like they are going to explode.

  114. So funny story – I had a long distance partner for a while with whom I had lots of phone sex with on the regular. I also work at a computer doing a lot of ten key.

    My right arm started hurting like whoa and so I went to our on site minute clinic and they gave me a wrist brace and anti inflammatory meds and etc.

    We split up a couple months later and it was 100% the Hitachi time that was jacking up my wrist (pun intended)

  115. i’ve got a MWR, and that was definitely a worthwhile purchase for both actual toy purposes and chronic pain stuff. (i was also amazed at even the first-level strength on my rocks-off chiamo which is basically somewhere between traditional vibe and overgrown bullet so that might suit your needs as well.)

    i’d say whether you want to go with this or the MWR amounts to “do you like patterns ever for any purpose and if you do do you care enough to pay the extra?” (i have really non-standard sensory hardwiring, so i like patterns and EVERYTHING including we-vibe’s tango tends to feel buzzy to me and i am therefore not well-suited to compare buzziness.)

  116. that’s basically how i ended up with a MWR, i wanted a wand that was also good for literal minor chronic pain management and got a rec from another blogger as well as epiphora that “yep good dual-purpose”.

  119. Two things:
    1) I’ve found that a powerful wand, applied appropriately, can get *me* as a penis-haver off as well, and this is amazing information that I offer up as a potential tryout for any penis-haver who might be interested. It’s intense, but it works.

    2) I know several folks who have ruined their wands with squirting by accident. When will the world listen and make them squirt-proof? or is it just that squirters are a growth market and insure magic wand profits year in and out?

  120. one of the attachments i have in the toy box is actually for the Mymagicwand European version that afaik isn’t even the same company, so if it says “will fit standard/full size” you are PROBABLY good. (i also struggled to get the attachments from another totally different but basically “full size” wand on FOR SCIENCE!!! and while it didn’t exactly fit perfectly the attachment DID vibrate, so….)

    also, while this is not PRECISELY an attachment (more like a combo platter), it is possible to have a good time by inserting a quasi-dual stim designed something like these examples and then using a Magic Wand on top of the external portion for extra power. (i seriously hate 50 shades as a social phenomenon, but from what i hear lovehoney’s line of “inspired by” toys is actually decent. i have the second, but i don’t think anybody on epiphora’s preferred list actually carries it.)

    may y’all have fun experimenting.

  121. I want one of these SO much. I’ve been eyeing the MWR but I just can’t pull the trigger. I’d be ecstatic if I won (and I think that’s the most literally I’ve ever used that word!)

  122. Would love love love to win one for my love, she has a disability and this would meet her needs perfectly <3

  124. I kind of don’t like mine lol.
    The 3rd and 4th setting are SO LOUD in the MWP (Magic Wand Plus) that is kind of well….distractingly annoying.
    To where I focus on how loud it is more than enjoying myself. Should I get the MWR instead?

  125. I’m so glad you took the time to review this version of the Magic Wand. The rechargeable version sounded good, but the price kept me from getting one. I’m very tempted to buy a Plus, now.

    I’m also glad to hear that the intense vibrations have been toned down a bit. I’d seen what the original wand could do an it was always a little scary-sounding! XD

  127. You are VERY welcome. I’ve been there. Considering the amount of vibration, it’s completely normal! What I learned to do was to hold the toy diagonally against my clit (so only a small portion is touching my body) and also to re-position it frequently. That helped me acclimate better to the intensity of the vibration, eventually. But wands are not for everyone, and I hate it when people act like they are.

  128. Hey there William! I’ve chosen you as the winner of the Magic Wand Plus. Can you shoot me an email at [email protected] to discuss details? Thank you! If I don’t hear from you within a week, I will unfortunately need to choose a new winner.

  129. I went the better part of a decade between my first and second Magic Wands; to own two at once would be luxury beyond compare.
