We-vibe Tango - slim bullet by We-vibe - review by Kkay

Va Va Numb

I wanted to love the Tango, but at the end of the day it had one fatal flaw: no matter what I tried, it couldn't get me off.
Sleek design
Usable during intercourse
Buzzy, surface vibrations
Power dies down significantly with pressure applied

extremely useful review


The We-vibe Tango is basically a bullet vibe, and for what it is, it does it well. It's incredibly strong for being in such a tiny package, and I was amazed the first time I turned it on at exactly how much vroom it has.

Strong, small enough to use during sex, waterproof, rechargeable, and compatible with more than just water-based lube. Sounds like heaven, doesn't it?

And it would be, except for one thing: for me, the Tango was -impossible- to get off with.

Material / Texture

The We-Vibe tango is a plastic bullet vibrator. I couldn't find any information on what the button at the base is made of. The small, brief manual suggested using water-based lubricant only so I initially thought it must be silicone, but it didn't react at all to silicone lubricant when I used it. The button itself has a good solid click to it.

There's no noticeable scent to the toy. The plastic is smooth and hard with no flex or give and no imperfections. We-vibe is written on the base of the toy, near the flare, and on the other side Tango is written. It's very flush, barely able to be read, much less felt.

One thing that I didn't like about the flare to the base is that it's not adequately smoothed off, leaving an unpleasant ridge that can scratch fingers.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the We-vibe Tango is pretty basic. There's a single button on the bottom that is use to turn the toy on or off and to cycle through patterns, and there are two small metal dots on either side of the button that connect to the magnetic charger. It's a simple, easy to use toy, and anyone who spent thirty seconds with it would be fully comfortable with it.

The shape of it is ideal. The flat tip offers broad stimulation, while the point can be used for pinpoint vibration and the domed side can be used for a mix of both. It offers a great deal of variation in sensation in a small toy, and that's one thing I like about the Tango.

It's also small. Coming in at three and a half inches, it's approximately the size of one of my fingers. This has upsides and downsides. It makes it small enough to use during sex, but also small enough that even a hint of lube makes it difficult to hold onto.

The magnetic charging allows the toy to be truly waterproof, and it's easy enough to connect. The charger won't hold the toy upright, but it's stronger than some magnetic chargers I've encountered. (Looking at you, JeJoue.)

As far as discretion goes, looks-wise while it's off, I could see it passing as a lipstick in a purse.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations of the We-vibe Tango come in four strengths

1 LOW 3000 rpm VIBE
2 MEDIUM 3600 rpm VIBE
3 HIGH 4200 rpm VIBE
4 ULTRA 4800 rpm VIBE

And four patterns

5 TEASE (10 slow, strong pulses then a quick flutter of pulses)
6 WAVE (the traditional rollercoaster pattern, stays at the top well)
7 PULSE (quick sharp bursts, my least favorite)
8 CHA CHA (buzz, buzz, BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ, buzz, buzz, BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ.)

The vibrations are strong, especially for such a small toy, and they don't really center at any point of the vibe. They make it difficult to hold onto the Tango, especially with lube-slick hands.

With so much strength, I expected to be able to get off with it easily.

When I put it into use, though, I was disappointed.

The issue with the Tango, for me, is that whenever pressure is applied to it, the strength of vibrations die down significantly. This means that I can lightly place the tip of it on my clit and it'll be firm and strong, but when I try and press more firmly or let my labia surround it, the vibrations taper off.

This might work better for someone who likes a light touch, but for someone like me who needs pressure and rubbing along with vibration to get off, it's miserable. I've tried over and over and over again to get off with this toy, but nothing I do works. It feels good at first, but when I try to take it beyond foreplay I end up numb and frustrated.

Also, though it's discreet in shape and size, the Tango is not discreet in volume. It's not loud enough to be heard through a door, but it will be heard clearly underneath blankets from across the room.

It is waterproof, and I had no issues with completely submerging it.

Care and Maintenance

The We-vibe Tango is plastic. This means that it cannot be sterilized, and if you plan to use it on partners who are not fluid-bonded you will need to use a condom or a toy cover.

As far as basic cleaning, I haven't had any issues. The plastic is smooth and rigid and it easily wipes down. The only seam is where the plastic and the base of the toy meet, and I find that it doesn't get gunked up.

Lubricant-wise, the manual says to only use water-based lubricant.

For storage, a bag comes with the Tango. I recommend keeping it in there for one main reason: it's TINY. I've lost this thing more times than I can count.
    • Easy to clean


The packaging of the We-vibe Tango was largely uninspiring, and not suited for storage. It did advertise the toy clearly, so that's something to keep in mind. Included is the We-vibe, the charging port, the actual charger, and a cheap-feeling satin bag that could feasibly fit twenty of the Tango.

One thing I was surprised by was exactly how brief the manual was. Very little information was offered, and I feel like this was an oversight on the part of the company.
