Smart IndeedIf you don't have the Smart Wand yet, I would recommend that you strongly consider it. It is rare that I can find nothing wrong with a product but that is the case here. This massager is simply amazing and I can't imagine bothering to purchase a different one in any other brand.
The intended uses for this product are sensual massage and sexual gratification. For both, it works very well. It is intended for external use only, meaning it is not insertable. It may be used all over the body, including the back, neck, shoulders, thighs, butt, nipples, penis, testicles, and clitoris.
The Smart Wand is for both beginners and advanced users due to the wide range of vibration intensities to choose from. This particular toy is also equipped with Lelo's patent pending "sensetouch" setting, allowing the user to control the strength of vibrations by using pressure rather than the control pad. This setting will allow for wonderful, more natural deep tissue massage as well as a build up to an intense orgasm.
Since the Smart Wand is rechargeable, waterproof and wireless, it can go anywhere with you. Additionally, it offers a certain level of discreetness, since it is shaped as a traditional massager.
Silicone rates a ten out of ten on Eden's safety scale. This is largely due to the fact that it is non-porous, which allows it to be completely disinfected. This, in turn, makes it a great toy for sharing, as long as any body fluids are washed off between partners.
There is a light scent to this toy but I do not find it at all unpleasant. There is no adverse taste.
The handle of the wand curves ergonomically for a more comfortable grip. The gold metallic panel on the inner curve of the handle makes it easier to grip during use. The weight is more top heavy on this toy, which makes it easiest to use with the handle angled up while the vibrating head is down on the body.
I found that the size and shape was well designed for solo use as well as partner use. The length of the wand is large enough so that I can access my entire back for a self-massage. The length is also perfect for keeping the wand out of the way as a couple's sex toy.
This toy is more discreet than many since it is non-phallic and in the shape of a massager. This makes it well suited for travel as well, as it will not be a huge embarrassment if your bags are looked through at the airport security check. Additionally, the Smart Wand has a locking feature so it will not turn on during traveling. It also comes with its own travel bag. It is a little bit on the bulky side if you aren't packing an entire suitcase though.
The Lelo Smart Wand may be used in two ways: the traditional key pad approach and the patent-pending "sensetouch" function. The keypad has three buttons. The top button is marked with a "+", the middle button has two arrows to indicate cycle, and the bottom button has a "-". As you may have guessed, this toy is pretty user friendly. To turn it on, simply press the "+" button. Press it additional times to reach your desired intensity. Likewise, press the "-" to decrease intensity. Once you are down to the lowest intensity, an additional press of the "-" will turn the wand off. The cycle button will allow you to choose from the eight different functions. When the toy is turned off, it will again begin at the first function.
I will do my best to describe the functions to you:
2.slow pulsing (2 pulses/1 second)
3.medium pulsing (4 pulses/1 second)
4.fast pulsing (8 pulses/1 second)
5.slow surge (bursts of lower to high intensity)
6.roller coaster (bursts of lower to higher, then back to lower intensity)
7.medium surge (similar to medium pulsing, but more of a steady vibration than an off/on effect)
8.random mix (if there's a pattern to this, I haven't cracked it...it's like randomly switching between slower and faster intensities)
Now, there is also the "sensetouch" function. In order to use it, you must hold the cycle button for 3-5 seconds until you see it flash. The wand will then sense when the head is pressed against your body and increase strength as it is held there. It is set automatically to be at 100% strength, so use the "-" button if it is too intense. When the wand is removed from the body, it goes back to a lower speed. The theory behind this is that muscles are better stimulated during massage when there is a build up to a higher speed, as opposed to constantly receiving the same level of high speed. Holding the cycle button down again will switch the wand back from "sensetouch" into the keypad mode.
A few important notes on the "sensetouch":
1. it only uses steady vibrations, you cannot use the functions
2. it cannot be used with any wand attachments; the head of the wand must make direct contact with the skin
3. in "sensetouch" mode, the wand will automatically turn off after 1 minute of non-activity to conserve the battery and will need to be powered back on by pressing the "+" button again
4. if the wand is turned off in "sensetouch" mode, it will still be in "sensetouch" mode when turned back on; to switch off the "sensetouch", you must hold down the cycle button
This toy has a large range of intensity and noise. At the least, it has an intensity of 1 vroom and a noise level of 1 bee. At the most, it has an intensity level of 4 vrooms and a noise level of 3 bees.
Lastly, this toy comes complete with a locking feature for traveling. This feature may be accessed by holding the "+" and "-" simultaneously until the light goes off. To unlock, you repeat the action until the light goes back on.
The Smart Wand may be used with any water-based lubricant or oil-based lubricant. Do not use it with a silicone-based however, as it will melt the silicone material.
As a bonus, it is also incredible for sexual pleasure. Sometimes, I keep it low and steady to let the anticipation build up and other times, I use it on a higher intensity and have a quickie. However, the function that really drives me crazy is the last one, where it is seemingly random when the intensity lowers and increases. Not being able to anticipate what's coming next adds a whole new level of pleasure. When with my partner, I find it works easiest using it in the doggy style position or with me flat on my back with my legs straight up against him. This keeps it from getting in the way, while still allowing me access to stimulate myself. He loves it as well, saying the strong vibrations carry through me into him.
