It's fun that you plug in!

I always thought of this toy as one “for old people,” and it took me many years before I tried it out. How I wish I had tried it sooner! While not a toy for a beginner, the powerful vibrations are just what I need sometimes! At 31, I don’t consider myself “old” either. If it is too strong for you, get a dimmer switch and plug it into that, but everyone should have this in his or her toy box!
Huge vibrations!
Noise level is high, heavy

extremely useful review


The Hitachi Magic Wand has so many uses! We have used this to loosen up back muscles while giving each other a massage while also using it around and directly on my clit. This is not a beginner’s toy! Even on low, the vibrations are very strong and directed at whatever the soft rubber end is touching. I would also recommend not starting with this toy. I find it too strong to start out with whether I am “going solo” or my partner and I are playing together. Because the vibrations are so strong, my partner does not care to use this particular toy near his “equipment," but it is great for stimulating the rest of him. On low it feels great on nipples too! Do not set this toy down when the actual sex begins; it is great fun to use during penetration too! Our favorite “non-foreplay” way to use this is doggy style while I hold it against my clit on high while he goes to town! The vibrations are strong enough that he can also feel them! It works wonders in other positions too, but we are not small people, so the logistics of getting any toy positioned can sometimes be tricky.

Material / Texture

The wand’s handle is hard plastic; it is very smooth and is contoured nicely for an easy hold. The head end is a softer material, but I believe still plastic. The soft end has a faux leather type texture to it, but the packaging is labeled as smooth. The texture is more for look though, you cannot feel it at all. When we purchased ours, we also purchased an attachment for it. The attachment is made of very soft latex and we choose to not use it as the vibrations do not transmit through to the end well. The texture on the head of the wand helps to hold the attachment in place.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

This is not a toy I will travel with unless it is by car! The shape is great for massaging out any tension in your muscles while also being compact enough to feel great on any of your more “private” areas. The head end measures just over 2 inches across but is not insertable (or I wouldn’t do it anyway). If you want something that goes "in," get one of the many attachments for it! Overall, the wand could be a little shorter in length for us (slightly over 12 inches from head to handle tip) but is great for home use. It isn’t easy to store since it is so long and the cord always seems to be in the way, but if your nightstand has a nice big drawer or two, it can be stuffed away fairly easily. The hardest part for us is having room to hide the extension cord. It has a 6-foot cord on it, but our house is lacking outlets close to our bed. Because this plugs into the wall and does not use batteries, some planning has to be done when using this in your foreplay or sex activities. It is a little inconvenient to have to stop, unwind the cord, plug it in, etc. Get this one set up in advance if you think you might want to use it!

Functions / Performance / Controls

All of the vibrations for this wand are in the head with very little of the vibrations even making it into the handle! This is a great feature for us; it is difficult to use a vibrator well once the vibrations have made the controller’s hand go numb! The controls for this are a simple high/low switch. You press it one way for high and the other way for low with off being right in the middle. A sliding control might be better for this since it packs such a strong vibration, but I think it would lack some of the “punch” if it had a slider! This is a very noisy toy! Don’t plan on this one if you are trying to be quiet or don’t want your roommates knowing what you’re up to! This is one of those toys you save for when you have the house to yourself or you have somehow convinced everyone else in the house that you only use this to work out those knots you get in your shoulder. Since the wand isn’t shaped like a penis or anything, that claim may work on the kiddos until they get old enough to go to school. This toy is not waterproof! It plugs into electricity; do not play with this anywhere near water!
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

Unplug this to clean it! We clean this the same as we clean most of our toys: rinse carefully if needed, spray with an antibacterial toy cleaner (ours says to let sit for a few minutes and rinse), then air dry. For this toy specifically, I am extremely careful about how I get the head wet. I don’t submerge it by any means. A wet washcloth works well. I also make it a point not to play with this toy for a few days afterward on the off chance I did get water where it shouldn’t be. Storage is simple as well. Since it is all plastic, it goes straight in a drawer or back into the box. If you have a large enough toy bag, use that! It measures over 12 inches not including the cord, so the bag would need to be very large!

This comes packaged in a cardboard box that has nothing even remotely sexual on it, making it something the kids could run across and not know they had just found a sex toy (unless you keep it with a pile of dildos or something). While we don’t have any children in our house, I still think of these things for the rare occasion we have visitors!
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Minimal
    • Would make a nice gift
Follow-up commentary
Where’s the “I still love it” option?

This is one of those things that gets ignored for a while in favor of the smaller toys and/or other items to review. It tends to make all the rest feel “insignificant” after using the Hitachi. Nevertheless, we do opt to bring this one out from time to time.

Nothing has changed since I wrote my review, the wand still plugs into the wall and provides minutes of fun (if I use it any longer at one time, I don’t think I would be able to stand up for a week!)

There are no batteries to change so you don't have to worry about them leaking.

The only real downfall to the Hitachi Magic Wand is that it is hard to clean! We recently remedied that in this house by purchasing a small package of baby wipes and shortly after that, a package of After Glow Toy Wipes. Using the wipes on the head of the Hitachi makes cleaning this one up so much simpler.

    Great review, thanks.

    Never thought about a dimmer switch. I have the fairly wand and I love how it has a scrolling wheel for the speeds rather just just High or Low settings.

    I can't take credit for that idea...I have read it many places before we worked up the nerve to buy this. lol.
