Deep Purple.Lelo has definitely wowed me with this wand. It delivers some of the most deep vibrations I have ever felt, and they are powerful to boot! The design is very common in the massager world, but Lelo is known for putting classy spins on original ideas. It is large and bulky at times, but the Sense Motion Technology makes for some awesome massaging and foreplay. I was not expecting to love the Sense Motion, but it really shined for us in the bedroom. Lelo has made me fall in love all over again!
This thing is a beast when it comes to using this for bedroom play. I say this because the vibrations are deep and powerful. I have never felt anything like it. The wand can be used on the clit, but the large head will vibrate everything it comes into contact with. This is best served as a broad stimulator. There is no way, that I have found, to get pinpoint stimulation with this wand. The broad head makes everything a little more sensitive and overwhelming. Just as this can be used for body massages, this can be used to stimulate and pleasure any erogenous zone you can think of. The head can be used for penetration, vaginally or anally, but it is very large and most will not be able to use it this way. I know I can't. The flexible neck and head are completely covered with silicone, so it makes this waterproof and anal safe. The head, if you can make it fit, would make a delicious vibrating anal plug (the head and neck). Even if you can't insert this anally, it feels awesome as an external anus vibrator/teaser. I had Bob (Lelo's prostate toy) in my last night, and my hubby turned it into a vibrating machine by touching this wand to the base of Bob.
This wand is waterproof up to a certain degree. The body is completely waterproof, but there is an open charing port located at the bottom of handle. Lelo says that this is a waterproof open charging port. I am just not comfortable with getting this part wet. I would say that this could be taken into the shower, but I would not fully submerge this in a bathtub. The large size and jackhammer vibrations may seem intimidating to beginners when it comes to using it for sexual purposes, but this is perfect for anyone who is willing to give it a shot.
The entire toy is luxurious and would absolutely make an excellent gift. The toy could be used for masturbatory reasons during solo play. It can also be used for orgasm torture when playing with a partner. Although this is too big to fit between two bodies, it makes a wonderful foreplay tool. This is just a perfect all around toy except that it is way too big for travel. I would take my Smart Wand Medium instead.
The handle has a gold ABS plastic section. It helps the toy achieve that glossy, polished look. Plastic has no smells or tastes, and it has all the same great features (non-porous, etc.) of silicone. The plastic is smooth and shiny, and this can potentially make slippery fingers harder to hold onto. This handle has the name Lelo etched into it at the top, and they can collect fluids every once in a while.
I know that a bunch of people wanted a review that compared the large and medium Smart Wands, so I decided to buy both and grant those wishes! I even took some pictures comparing the two. First of all, I just want to say that for the record I did not expect there to be such a huge difference when it came to these wands.
The biggest difference between these two is, of course, the size. The large has a total length of 12 inches, and the medium measures 8 5/8" in total length. The Medium's neck is more flexible than that of the Large wand. The large wand's head has a 2 1/4" diameter, but the medium's head only has a 1 5/8" diameter.
The second most noticeable difference is the vibration quality and quantity. The large wand has very, very deep vibrations. I can feel the vibrations all the way down into my muscles. It is very relaxing even when it feels like it could vibrate my clit off. The medium wand has somewhat deep vibrations, but they feel buzzy towards the highest settings. Also, the medium does not stand up to pressure well at all. I need pressure to orgasm clitorally, but the vibrations diminished greatly when I tried to apply that pressure. The large wand is a totally different situation. I can apply as much pressure as I possibly can, and the vibrations continue to vibrate at the intensity I had set it to. I can still orgasm with the medium wand, but it takes a lot longer. The orgasms don't feel as deep or instense either. The large wand does carry some extra bulk and weight, but it also delivers better vibrations. If I want pinpoint stimulation, I go to the medium. I guess I am caught between two great wands. What a fantastic dilema!
There are three buttons on the front of the wand: +, -, (). To increase the pattern intensity and to turn the toy on, press the + button. To turn the intensity down, press the - button. You can also press and hold the - button in order to turn the toy off completely. When you first turn the toy on, it will be in steady vibration mode. To get to the patterns, press the () button once. You can increase and decrease the intensity of each pattern, which is very cool. The following are your patterns:
1.) Long, slow pulses with a short break in between each pulse
2.) Long, fast pulses
3.) Short, rapid pulses
4.) Escalating fast from low to high
5.) Rollercoaster vibes (low to high, back down to low)
6.) Escalating pulses (low to high)
7.) Chaos mode (no pattern detected)
8.) Back to steady vibrations
Along with all of these amazing patterns, Lelo's wands come with Sense Motion Technology. To turn this mode on, press and hold the () button until the lights start to blink. Do the same thing to turn this mode off. I have found that it does not matter which pattern you are on when it comes to this function. Sense mode can be turned on at any time. While it is in Sense mode, you can press the () again to change the pattern just like you would if it was in regular mode. What I am trying to say is that the patterns can also be used in the Sense mode as well. It doesn't just work with steady vibrations. I thought this was super cool. You might be wondering what Sense mode is. Well, Sense mode turns the head of this toy into a senstive massager. If the head is not touching skin, then it will idle in the lowest intensity. When it comes into contact with skin, the intenisty increases. This is perfect when using this as a teasing tool, or orgasm torture tool, as the longer you make this touch your skin the more intense the vibrations become until it reaches the highest level possible (this usually takes only 3-5 seconds to achieve)! If using this as a torture device, this really saves the battery and it makes this last longer! What a win-win situation. I have said it before and I will again: the vibes on this thing is ridiculous! When I hold this, I can feel the deep vibes travel all the way down the handle and into my elbow. After a long session, my lady parts and my hand are usually throbbing from the intense vibes. It could make sensitive users feel irritated or sometimes numb. I love this overwhelming piece of genius!
