The core of any good toy chest!

In conclusion, I'd say the hitachi is a must-have for every woman. The hitachi is versatile, powerful, and a damn good deal financially. For me, the hitachi is a valuable deal you just can't beat. Empower yourself and give your body fantastic orgasms, over and over again!
Strong vibrations, durable, great for use with a partner
Must be plugged in, noisy, somewhat bulky
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The hitachi magic wand is a must-have for every woman and couple! The powerful hitachi comes with two vibration settings: low and high. Low is powerful enough to induce very swift (<2 minutes), intense orgasms with little-to-no warm-up. The high setting is VERY intense, to the point that I've only used that setting once.

The hitachi was a gift from a friend, and I am a very grateful girl indeed. The hitachi's shape precludes it from being used for insertion, but insertion can be achieved with the purchase of certain accessories. Personally, I prefer the hitachi for external stimulation. Pairing the hitachi's powerful vibrations with couple play - during intercourse or while giving oral - increases the number of orgasms exponentially. The hitachi can be used in a huge variety of positions; all that's needed is a couple inches of space between your clitoris and your partner's body. On men, the hitachi can be used to stimulate the perineum, testicles, and shaft.

Don't let the cord dissuade you from buying this fantastic toy. The hitachi is wonderfully versatile and has a long cord, so lovers aren't restricted by excessive proximity to a power source.

Material / Texture

The "head" of the hitachi feels like a semi-firm sponge with a plastic coating, making it ideal for toy users of all experience levels. The head is mounted on a moderately mobile stem. In conjunction, the spongy head and flexible stem give under pressure, tilting and allowing for squishing between bodies with very little discomfort (unlike hard plastic toys). One drawback is that the hitachi is in no way water proof, making it somewhat difficult to clean after use. If using with a non-monogamous partner, slip a condom over the head to prevent fluid transfer.
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The hitachi is long with a hard plastic handle and a soft, bulbous head. The size and shape can be off-putting; at first glance, the hitachi seems incompatible with discreet solo or partner use. Don't let yourself be fooled! The long handle and slim design make the hitachi easy to slip between two bodies, and is incredibly easy to use solo. The handle can be laid along the stomach with the head on the clitoris, held in the hand and pressed to the clit while on top, or laid between the legs with the head beneath her clit so she can grind against it while being fucked from behind. The shape of the hitachi is great for women who crave clitoral stimulation during sex play.

Functions / Performance / Controls

There's only one control switch for the hitachi, which means no frustrated fumbling for the correct function during sex. The simple switch has the option of high or low vibrations. All of the vibrations are centered at the head of the hitachi, which is the only part of the toy really intended for stimulation. The high setting is intense in the extreme; unpleasantly so, for me (that said, I'm fairly sensitive to vibrations, and tend to never use the "high" setting on any toy). The low setting is absurdly powerful and can provide GREAT orgasms.

The hitachi is pretty loud; plan on using it under the covers and with music playing if you don't want to be heard. This toy is in no way waterproof, and must be used within 3-4 feet of an electrical outlet. The necessary proximity to an outlet can be frustrating, however, it means the toy will not lose power, vibrations, or have the motor burn out. I've had mine for over three years, and haven't had a single performance problem yet!
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

The hitachi is relatively low-maintenance; just make sure you keep it plugged in! Because the hitachi is not waterproof, you want to make sure you use some sort of barrier protection between it and a non-monogamous partner to prevent fluid transfer. It is incredibly simple to slip a condom over the head of the hitachi, a must if you plan to use it with multiple partners. Otherwise, clean up is incredibly easy - take a damp cloth, wipe the head of the hitachi, and then dry it.

Storage can be tricky. I have a bedskirt, so I simply slip the hitachi under the edge of the bed when not in use. No guests see the hitachi or the cord, and the toy is within easy reach whenever I'm feeling frisky. If you can't put the hitachi under the bed, use becomes a bit more of an ordeal. The hitachi can easily be stored in a drawer, but that then requires removing the hitachi and plugging it in before use, rather than spontaneously reaching out for it.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The hitachi comes in a white box with a full-color picture on the front. Definitely not discreet packaging; I wouldn't recommend reusing the packaging unless you're pretty brazen. If you plan on giving the hitachi as a gift, save your giftee a few blushes and wrap it or put the box in another container/bag first.
    • Not discreet
    • Would make a nice gift
Follow-up commentary
I can't gush enough about how much I LOVE my Hitachi! It's still my go-to gal when I need a quick pick-me-up. After two years of use, my Hitachi is still as powerful as the day I received it and has never failed me. Love at first orgasm!
