To be able to use a product and know that you’re guaranteed an awesome orgasm with minimal effort is a coveted experience. A reliable toy is worth its weight in gold and the Sh! Cordless Massager is worth every penny.
This particular Cordless Wand Massager is not made by Sh! but, rather, is the standard cordless wand stocked by them. Sh! is a women’s sex shop with a vested interest in helping people achieve sexual pleasure and well-being. With that in mind I requested the Cordless Wand Massager to review hoping that it would be an effective, reasonably priced, body-safe wand.
When it first arrived I did have some doubt, but looks can be deceiving. This is one of the most effective wands I own, proving that sometimes simplicity can produce the best results.
The Sh! Cordless Wand Massager
Why did I doubt this toy at first? Well, put simply, it was due to its appearance and general build quality.
With a plastic body the Cordless Wand Massager’s felt very light a kind of flimsy. It definitely had that classic plastic-y feel to it which left the massager feeling kind of cheap. While the head of the Cordless Wand Massager has a silicone sleeve the underneath is simply foam too, furthering my caution.
Put simply the design on the Cordless Wand Massager just felt very basic—a far cry from the ‘luxury’ wands that I usually review.
At the bottom of the Cordless Wand Massager is a little plastic insert that acts as a little lock for the charging area. This is removed to insert the wand’s charging cord, which can be plugged in via the mains or USB. Initially you have to charge your wand for 6 hours but each subsequent charge should only take 4 hours maximum. A single charge should last you for about 2 hours. I have to admit I’ve used my want a lot and it hasn’t died on me once, despite only having a single charge so far.
One note of importance: The Cordless Wand Massager doesn’t have a light to let you know when it’s charging (or finished charging) so it’s best that you keep an eye on the time manually.
I think by this point it should be apparent that this product is a bare-bones item in many ways; it has what it needs to have in order to give you a powerful, body-safe orgasm but that’s about it. Nothing more and nothing less.
The lack of added features might annoy some. It certainly threw me off at first, but as time has gone by I’ve actually grown to love the simplicity of this toy. There’s no fuss and no complications. All I need to do is turn it on and enjoy myself.
In terms of controls there are only two buttons—one to turn the toy on and off and another to cycle through its 10 settings. Two of these settings are consistent vibrations, one of which is powerful and the other of which is even more powerful.
In terms of vibrations the Cordless Massage Wand is pretty damned respectable. The first level is a low, buzz-rumble combo with reverberating depth. The second level is a bit buzzier, even more intense and adds even more depth. They aren’t the most powerful (or deepest) vibrations on the market but they are still quite formidable and shouldn’t disappoint a power queen. In fact I usually use mine on the lower setting, that’s how assuring the power of this wand is.
One of the things that really aids the Cordless Massage Wand during use is its head. The silicone used for the head of this wand has a very fine, almost grainy texture to it which adds a very unique form of stimulation when applied to the vulva and clitoris. It’s kind of gritty without lubricant but becomes sensational when lubed up, augmenting the experience further.
The Cordless Massage Wand also has an incredibly flexible neck, which can aid or hinder use depending on your preferences. For me it was beneficial—as it meant I could hold the wand firmly against myself when I wished and then release my grip for a less intense experience.
Personally I got along with this wand exceptionally well. I’ve never failed to orgasm with it and the orgasms have always been exceptional. They’re strong, fulfilling and everything you might want out of a wand vibrator.
I always feel like I’ve got enough vibration intensity when using this wand and I would easily consider it a hidden gem. It’s something that is so easily overlooked if you’re used to expensive wands but it performs equally well. In fact it’s become one of my favourite wands to use.
So, are there any downsides with this wand? Yes, a few.
The first is cleaning. Because the Cordless Massage Wand has so many nooks and crannies it can be difficult to give it a thorough and assuring clean. There have been a few times when I think I’ve done a good job only to look at the wand when dry and find gunk just under the silicone sleeve. It’s frustrating. And because this wand is only splash proof you have to be cautious when cleaning it, exasperating the problem. In short a toothbrush and some patience might be needed during the cleaning of this toy.
My partner also found that the edges at the bottom of the wand can feel quite sharp. This was a problem during partnered use because the wand seemed to find ways to rub against him, irritating his skin.
I feel like beginners or those who like gentle vibrations may also find the vibrations provided by this wand to be too much. There really is no gentle setting on this wand—only powerful and more powerful—because of that users who like a lighter touch may want to steer clear of this product.
Usually with wands sound can be an issue. While this wand certainly does make a humming noise I wouldn’t say it was overly loud. Mr. Peaches and I couldn’t hear it through our door and some music would probably cover it up. However if you have very thin walls and need an absolutely silent toy then this wand may be a tad too loud for you.
At £50 the Sh! Cordless Wand Massager is one of the most reasonably priced wands on the market of this size and strength. The vibrations from this wand aren’t exceptionally innovative (and neither is its design) but sometimes there’s nothing wrong with a conventional wand, especially when it still manages to feel so outstanding.
I adore my Cordless Wand Massager and I know it will continue to stay close to me during my masturbation sessions. I wholeheartedly recommend it and hope it can give you as much joy as it does me.
