It Was Good While It Lasted

The hitachi is a staple of my sex toy bag; it deserves the hype it gets, for sure. Strong, but loud, the hitachi might just be too much for some, but for those who are disappointed by weak vibrations in other toys, the hitachi delivers.
Strong vibrations, easy to use solo or with a partner, might be too strong for sensitive women.
LOUD! And it died mid-session.

useful review


A classic personal massager, the Hitachi Magic Wand is certainly magical. With a large head for huge stimulation and a powerful vibration speed (even on low!) the Hitachi is sure to hit the spot, wherever the spot is. It also works well to stimulate your partner's penis; if you are using it while being fucked, he'll be able to feel the vibrations, too.

Because the vibrator's head is so large, it can also be used for anal stimulation, or as an actual massager--use it on your arms if they're tired from too much masturbation!

Material / Texture

The hitachi's head is smooth, slightly ripped plastic; but as it's corded and not waterproof, full sterilization can be tricksy. One of my issues with the hitachi is that I used it while menstruating, and was subsequently unable to restore the head to its former pristine white condition. A lesson learned--use a condom over your hitachi if it's gonna get dirty!

And, because it's latex free, those who are allergic don't have to miss out on a thing.

Design / Shape / Size

It's large, so it won't fit in an ordinary toybox, but for those who think bigger is better, the Hitachi delivers. The only issue is that if you're using it for solo stimulation for a long period of time, the straight shaft can hurt your forearm--so remember to switch off and give your dominant hand a break!

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls are easy to use: Low, off, and WOW. Even on low, the vibrations are intense. . . And LOUD. The hitachi sounds like a jackhammer in the bedroom--but it can be muffled under a blanket and a TV show. But the vibrations are serious, so people with difficulty reaching climax may find this toy satisfying.

While some don't like electric--I do; it means that the hitachi is never going to die on me from low battery power when I need it to live on.

Care and Maintenance

The hitachi is easy to care for; the plastic means it's safe for use with all lubricants, and safe for cleaning. Because of its size, I cannot store it in a toybox with my dildos and vibrators, so I make sure it is wrapped in cotton before storage, to prevent anything nasty from soiling it.


It came in a fairly bland cardboard box: I was suspicious and underwhelmed when I first saw it. Looks were totally deceptive.

Personal comments

A fabulous toy that every woman should own; if not for daily use, then for those special occasions where a quick fix isn't quick enough.


I must say that I am the first among my friends to actually KILL a hitachi! My hitachi died, mid-session a few weeks ago, refusing to turn on to its low setting. While I'm saddened that the hitachi only lasted about a year, it was used daily and did its job quite well while it lasted.

    I think your Magic Wand was defective. I've had mine for 30 years. Its possible they don't make them the same way now, but even so, a year is too soon for it to die.
  • Contributor: DeliciousSurprise
    It's possible that it was defective; it has since started working properly again, but it concerns me that it fritzed out; I'd rather have a new one than one that's got an electrical short. Even so, it was a great product while it lasted; it worked quite nicely.

    Sucks that it might be defective but ya better safe than sorry I say!
    Nice review!
  • Contributor: DeliciousSurprise
    It does suck that it's defective--and it full well might not be, but I'd rather not take a chance and just buy a new one. Thanks!

    The Hitachi's just one of those classics that I've never tried. Maybe someday Smile Thanks for the review.
  • Contributor: DeliciousSurprise
    I was never interested in the hitachi, but my partner insisted. . . I'm so glad she did! It's definitely something else--but it's a little rough on sensitive parts at times.
