My Wand Has Chosen Me – and I’m Not Talking About the Wizarding Kind!

If you’re expecting something Harry Potter themed, let me just say right now, before you take a seat and make yourself comfortable, that you’ve come to entirely the wrong place. Sorry, I did try to give you a hint in the article title.

Likewise, if you are of a more, shall we say, ‘conservative’ nature, you too may want to slip out of the side door before we begin.

Because ladies (and gents), I’m here to discuss the merits of the iconic wand vibrator and trust me, you’re going to want to buckle up, ‘cos it’s a hell of a ride!

What is a Wand Vibrator?

Wand vibrators are famed for giving even those who find it difficult to climax, toe-curling orgasms. But you may be surprised to learn that the original ‘magic wand’ released in the 1960’s was intended as a ‘body massager’ – you know, like an all-over-body sports massager for sore muscles, rather than a pleasure-giving device for the genital area! So along with penicillin, microwave ovens, and x-rays, we could technically add wand vibrators to the list of greatest inventions that were made by mistake. And if you think that’s a big call, all I have to say is, “you madam, might need a little trip to the wand shop for yourself! Then we’ll talk!”

Thanks to the now legendary sex educator Betty Dodson – known for teaching millions of women to masturbate and enjoy clitoral orgasms at her workshops in New York in the 70’s – the original Hitachi Magic Wand has reached cult-status as one of the most renowned toys in existence. She referred to it famously as ‘the Cadillac of vibrators,’ on account of it being big and powerful just like a Cadillac. But, of course, she might have also been referring to the loud sounding engine. Brrrrm! Brrrrm!

Thankfully, they’ve come along way since then, and many are much quieter than the originals.

So, for those of you looking at it and wondering “WTF do I do with that?” Let’s just clear one important thing up before we go any further and cause ourselves some mischief…wand vibrators are for use externally ONLY. Ok? Good. As you were.

Thanks to the wonder of technology, the wand vibrator has gone through many upgrades over the last 50 years, and the fact that there is such a variety available is testament to the fact that women everywhere are still embracing the magic of the wand!

Mantric Rechargeable Wand Vibrator from Lovehoney Review

Our friends at Lovehoney kindly sent me a Mantric Rechargeable Wand Vibrator so that I could experience some of the ol’ abracadabra for myself! Despite considering myself something of a sex toy connoisseur, having amassed quite a collection over the years, I’m almost embarrassed to tell you that I’ve never given a magic wand a trip around the block! I know! Shocking, right? Rest assured though that I have been making up for lost time, since this black beauty rocked up on my doorstep, in its discreet packaging!

When it comes to first impressions, I really love the understated cardboard box packaging that the Mantric wand comes in. I must admit though, I’d had it a week before I realised what the stylish mandala type logo was made up of!

You’ve got to love a cheeky logo!

Key features

  • Powerful massage wand vibrator for solo or shared external pleasure
  • Large, rounded head and flexible neck are perfect for deep-tissue massage
  • 7 modes of vibration for thrilling and versatile play
  • Rechargeable for sensational pleasure without cords or batteries

It’s hard to put into words just how soft, sleek and luxurious this wand feels on your skin. The curved handle and flexible neck makes it comfortable to hold and use. For a wand vibrator its also on the smaller side making it the perfect travel accessory! Did I mention that is has a travel-lock feature, so there is zero chance of it turning on by accident. Some people may not realise the importance of such a feature. Unfortunately, experience has taught me otherwise. Remind me to tell you one day about the time (back in our early 20’s) that my husband and I were staying at his grandmother’s house, and while she went to investigate where the strange rumbling noise was coming from, something on her stove caught on fire! Oh, the shame! Luckily after we’d put the fire out, she thought the whole thing was hilarious and would regularly bring it up at family gatherings. I’m not even joking!

Other things I love about it

  • It’s USB rechargeable
  • Waterproof
  • Its cordless
  • Has 7 different pattern modes and 5 speed settings so you can find your sweet spot
  • Features an LED light panel on one side that changes colour depending on the setting you are on. (So, I don’t recommend taking the Mantric with you if you’re camping in a tent!)
  • Its non-porous, body-safe and easy to clean
  • Can last for about 90 minutes on a single charge…apparently. Trust me, you’ll be lucky to make it to 90 seconds!
  • Great for solo or shared play
  • Quiet – (You know like when your phone is on silent and it rumbles on your dresser to let you know someone is calling – similar to that!) Not silent, but not loud!
  • At $109.95 it represents great value for money. It really is amazing quality for a mid-range toy.

Conclusion

Several scientific studies have shown massage wand vibrators to be the most successful method for women to achieve orgasm. Let’s just say if it was possible to roll your eyes back far enough that you could see your own brain, I’d have studied every inch of my grey matter by now!

The great thing about the wand is that you don’t need a clitoris to get pleasure from it. It can be used on male erogenous zones too. No one is exempt from the pleasure of a little rumble in the jungle! My advice? No matter what junk you’ve got in your trunk, life is too short not to experience the magic of a wand! But, start off slow and ease your way into it. These bad boys are really packing some power!
