My Right Hand Man

I highly recommend the Hitachi Magic Wand. After trying out dozens of other vibrators, this one stands out for its size, intensity, and reliability.
Intense vibrations, large surface area, multiple settings.
A bit noisy, gets very hot with extended use, short cord.

useful review


Although I consider myself a very sexually open person, I have always had difficulty achieving climax. My own fingers took too long, and I mentally recognized them as a part of myself. Shower heads and tub faucets could not easily deliver steady or adequate pressure at the right angle. Bullet vibes were often too weak, or too small, or heated up too quickly (and some ran on those terrible watch batteries that were a PITA to replace). Enter the infamous Hitachi Magic Wand which I received three years ago as a gift from my boyfriend.

Its large, bulbous head provides strong vibration to my entire clitoral region, and can easily be used to apply gentle or firm pressure while in use. Its two settings (high and higher) may overwhelm many, and certainly caused a numbing effect at times when I first began to use it, but I appreciate that it can maintain steady and intense vibration for however long it takes me to cum.

Material / Texture

The Hitachi Magic Wand is made of smooth, nonporous plastic that is comfortable to use. Over time, it can heat up or generate a good deal of friction, so you can use a dab of lube to help keep it gliding if you like. It imparts no odor, and it can easily be cleaned between uses to facilitate hygiene or to share it safely with others.
    • No odor

Design / Shape / Size

The Hitchi is definitely not discreet, and few will believe it is simply a back massager. It is large and in charge, and while that might be an issue for some, it suits me just fine. It is fine for travel though, provided you value your pleasure over the potential embarrassment of a few knowing glances.

The size and shape are well-suited for players of all ages and experience levels. This toy is meant for external use, and although it looks and sounds intimidating, it quickly wins most folks over. The only downside to its size is that it can get in the way if you try to use it for clitoral stimulation during vaginal penetration.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Hitachi Magic Wand is incredibly easy to use. Simply plug its two prongs into an outlet, lie back, and flip the switch. It has two settings, which can be reached by pressing the switch/button up or down, with off being the setting in between the other two. I appreciate that the off setting is located between the two, as it prevents me from accidentally turning the vibrator up when I have had enough. I sometimes wish that there was a dial to have more control over the intensity, and to allow for more settings, but by the same token, that might make things more difficult for me to achieve climax...constantly fiddling to find the right setting.

That being said, the Hitachi is not the quietest of vibrators, and it should come with a longer cord. As I have said previously however, the vibrator works wonders for me - allowing me to climax faster and more consistently than many other vibrators have and without leaving me desensitized, frustrated, or with a dying power source. After three years of moderate use, it is still going strong, and it shows no signs of slowing down!
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

The Hitachi Magic Wand is easy to care for - simply wash the head with some soap and water, or place a condom over its head if you prefer even speedier cleanup. Its head is made of plastic/rubber and works well with both water and silicone-based lubes, though I prefer the former. I do nothing special to store it, and honestly tend to leave it plugged in on or near my bed for ease of access.
