Toy Review: Lovehoney Deluxe Magic Wand Vibrator

A strong toy with great potential for the right partner.

So here it is. The big one; Lovehoney’s alternative to the Hitachi, and I have to say that I had a rocky start with this toy.

While it may have been love at first sight when I looked at Lovehoney’s Deluxe Magic Wand Vibrator on their website, my first few experiences with it were hardly the bed-rocking bliss that I had expected. Regardless I have since got to know this toy better and can now say that I believe it is well worth the money.

But enough about me for now, let’s talk about the toy.

The Lovehoney Deluxe Magic Wand Vibrator is a UK-friendly take on the Hitachi wand.  The most significant changes are that the Lovehoney version is actually legal to use in the UK and has a UK plug. This means that you’re able to plug it in and go without worrying about getting an adapter and whether or not that greedy adapter is stealing some of your charge (for more information see Lovehoney’s own video, Magic Wands Compared).

The toy itself is 13 inches in length and has an overall circumference of 7.5 inches, so expect it to have some heft about it. The head of the toy is 2 inches long and has the same circumference as the toy.  It comes with a 1.8 meter long cable. The cable hasn’t been a problem for me (as I have a plug socket right next to my bedside) but users who aren’t so fortunate might want to be mindful of this, as you will want a bit of wiggle room when it comes to this toy’s cable.

Unlike the both the Hitachi and Lovehoney’s other wands, the Lovehoney Deluxe wand has a scroll wheel to control the strength of its vibrations, which you scroll down to increase the vibrations. At first I thought this was rather counterintuitive but as soon as you start using this vibrator it becomes apparent that the dial is just right, as you’ll often be holding the vibrator ‘upside down’. Personally I think this shows a lot of forethought from Lovehoney which I really appreciate. It shows that they care about the efficiency of their products. This can’t always be said when it comes to the sex toy industry, so bravo to you Lovehoney.

That being said the handle of the Deluxe is quite girthy and is best described as unwieldy. The material used for the handle is also rather unappealing, especially when compared to the silky texture provided by Lovehoney’s Mini wand. However, these are small gripes and are perhaps just par for the course when it comes to such a large toy. While the Deluxe is quite large, its cumbersome frame does come with some benefits. With such a big head this toy has multiple applications and can be used on most body parts.

So how does this toy perform?  Well, those who dislike buzzy vibrations are in for some good news when it comes to the deluxe. I’ve never owned a Hitachi, so I can’t compare the two, but the Deluxe has impressive strength and knows just how to use it. The vibrations that this toy produces are rumbling, deep, and tremble-inducing if used in the right way. Also, unlike the Macro and the Mini, the vibrations in the Deluxe do not travel through the handle much, which is a definite plus and leaves the user free to enjoy the vibrations that the head produces.

When I first received this toy I have to admit that I wasn’t instantly won over by its vibrations. As most of my previous vibrators had been of the buzzy-variety I found myself strangely indifferent to the rumbling treat that the Deluxe was trying to offer me. Even on the highest setting I found that my clitoris couldn’t be won over, and I wondered in some dismay if I would ever be able to enjoy the wand that I had looked at so longingly over on Lovehoney’s website. But, with some perseverance, I not only earned my orgasm from this toy, but gained immense satisfaction from it, so here are some of my personal notes.

When it comes to couples play, if you want to use this toy with your partner on top of you (one of my favourite positions for foreplay) then you’re probably out of luck. This toy is rather large and so it really doesn’t fulfill this role well.  This particular problem, though, is easily remedied with a little bit of position switching. Using the wand while on top of your partner can be very enjoyable.  For me this lead to the strong and persevering orgasm that I had hoped to get from this toy—which was a great relief as well as a huge source of satisfaction.

During sex this toy can still perform. My partner and I found that the best position to use for this toy was doggy style, with me applying it to my clitoris. On the stronger vibration levels your partner will be able to feel the vibrations rumbling through you and get the dual-satisfaction of feeling the vibrations themselves and knowing that the vibrations are so strong that they are travelling deep into your body.

When it comes to masturbation this toy has its own set of perks and complications. For those, like me, who like to put a vibe between their thighs, hold it close and squeeze for enjoyment then this toy may not be the best choice for you. Due to the size of the head and its flexible neck this toy tends to shy away from such methods and leaves you feeling thoroughly frustrated. The solution to this is to simply change method altogether. I found that lying on my back and adopting more of a thrusting motion meant that I got to enjoy the full-effect of the toy without having it shy away from me with every motion. Now, if you’re the type of person who prefers the first type of masturbation-method and has no desire to change style then it might be worthwhile to keep these points in mind. For others, though, this could be the perfect toy for solo play, and allow for a bit of steamy sexploration.

So, after all I’ve said, would I recommend this toy?

Yes I would.

This toy does have a few flaws. The handle is chunky, like all wands it’s not the quietest of vibrators, and like all Lovehoney wands it can be difficult to clean due to the ridges on its head and neck. Its chord can be a bit short for some, and it can sometimes be a turn-off to navigate when you’re in the moment. However, if you want a strong toy (with a variety of power levels) that provides rumbling vibrations and good body coverage then this toy is the gift that doesn’t stop giving.

£49.99 might sound like a rather steep price for a sex toy, but when you factor in its lack of batteries, its durability, and the experiences it can offer you and your partner then £49.99 seems like a small price to pay for a long term sexual investment.
