The Old Classic That Never Fails

The Hitachi Magic Wand is an old cult classic that is certainly deserving of its title. Strong, deep vibrations both provide earthquake-inducing orgasms and relieve your aches and pains. Discreet, and versatile, no one can go wrong the Hitachi Magic Wand.
Excellent for getting rid of aches and pains
May be too strong for some
May require an extension cord

extremely useful review
Ever since I discovered vibrators, the Hitachi Magic Wand never failed to appear before me in the form of rave reviews. The Caddy of all Vibrators, the Queen, entranced me and I longed for her for three years. The only thing scaring me away from the Hitachi was the price tag; being a college student, I couldn't afford such an expensive vibrator. A few years after I purchased my first vibe, I discovered Eden. I saved up all my points, and finally came the day when I could purchase the legendary Hitachi for myself!

The Hitachi Magic Wand is a white electric-powered massager that resembles a microphone. Twelve inches in length, 6 3/4 inches in circumference, and 2 3/8 inches in diameter, she's one big, heavy vibe! A large, foam, flexible head and a long handle allows for easy maneuverability. She comes in two speeds: the "low" 5000 RPM, and the what I call "OH SWEET JESUS" high 6000 RPM. The settings are controlled by a simple switch. Pushing the switch down activates the low speed, pushing it up activates the high speed. Leaving it in the middle, or in neutral, turns and leaves it off. The cord is not too long, about six feet in length, so those who don't have beds near an outlet should look into getting an extension cord.

I'll start with the cons first: the Hitachi is LOUD. If you don't live alone, you WILL need to blast your TV or some music to cover up the noise, and/or run a fan. Covering up the Hitachi with a thick layer of blankets and shutting the door won't cut it. I know; I turned it on in the low setting, covered it up with all my blankets, and left the room and shut the door. I could hear it buzzing away from outside the door. So, there's no discretion when it comes to sound. Also, like I mentioned above, the cord is not too long. Some may need to use an extension cord with it. Being an electric-powered vibe, the Hitachi is NOT WATERPROOF. Do NOT, under ANY circumstances, even let her near water! Electrocution can be FATAL. One last con (that will also be mentioned in the pros) is that the Hitachi is STRONG. Very strong. I've got a clit o' steel myself, but for at least a week after using the Hitachi, no other vibe can get me off. For those with extremely sensitive clits, I'd maybe look elsewhere, or at least put something between your labia and the tennis ball-head to reduce the vibration strength. I actually use it with my clothes on. One last con: it tends to get warm after extended use, but that's never a problem for me because it gets me off in less than five minutes flat.

Now for the pros: it's strong! The Hitachi produces some of the strongest orgasms I've ever had and it's one of the only two toys to have ever made me squirt (I've only ever squirted from clitoral stimulation). The Hitachi never fails to leave me gasping and shaking after a round of solo fun. Second, there's no need for batteries. You won't have to worry about the vibrations decreasing as the batteries drain. No more spending money on batteries or having to steal from the TV remote. The Hitachi produces strong, unwavering vibrations through its electric power. Third, it can be used all over the body for aches and pains. And fourth, it's discreet in looks. You can leave this out and not get a raised eyebrow. When I first got this, my little cousin said, "It looks like a microphone," and then proceeded to grab it and start singing into it. So funny!

The packaging is also discreet. There's a woman on the box demonstrating use on her shoulder, but nothing about it even hints that it can be used as a standard clitoral vibrator. I wouldn't use it for gift packaging, though. I'd put this in a nice gift box with a nice bow. A toy of such power deserves special treatment.

Cleaning is rather easy. I use a toy wipe on the foam after every use, and it works perfectly. DO NOT put it under running water, even when it's unplugged. Use a wipe or an alcohol swab. It's all you need to keep it clean. Storage-wise, this can be kept in a drawer, or you can store it in its original packaging. As I've said before, it can be left out unassumingly. Just keep it out of reach of children and/or pets. For traveling, I wouldn't advise it, at least for overseas. The Hitachi is not meant for use outside the U.S., and it's not covered by warranty when used with a voltage converter.
I have leg, back, and hip pain, and so when I purchased the Hitachi, it wasn't just for "creative" fun. The deep, throbbing vibrations penetrate right through tissue and deep down into the muscles, working out any kinks you may have. Five minutes on a sore spot and the pain is gone. It's absolutely wonderful to have a toy that not only produces earth-shattering orgasms, but helps quell my pain. I can safely say that the Hitachi is worth every single penny, and I look forward to using it for many years to come.

One last note: I haven't tried any of the attachments for it, but the Gee-Whiz look promising. I plan on purchasing it someday.
Follow-up commentary
There's no way I could ever stop liking my Hitachi...but a week ago, it broke! The plug got bent (I have no idea how), so it's completely unusable. I actually cried a bit, and I'm still pretty upset. I guess that right there shows you just how much I loved my Hitachi if my earlier review didn't do it for you. I'm going to have to save up all my Eden points so I can eventually afford a new one. To everyone who is considering buying one or has just bought one: be VERY careful with the plug. Other than that, the Hitachi will last you a long time. I definitely plan on buying a new one!

    Outstanding review! So cute about the microphone! Ha Ha. It DOES look like one. Never even noticed that before, but it would pass. What a fun review! I enjoyed this so much. NOw I am wondering... why the heck have I not bought one of these? Shame. Shame. Thank you for the review. You brought me one step closer to buying this!

    Great review on a classic toy. I'm glad it also works on your sore muscles. I use it on my hubby's back from time to time and it works wonders.

    Great review. I want to order one of these soon for my fiance!
  • Contributor: Veracity
    Thanks everyone .

    @kendra: Yes, buy one! You won't be disappointed! And I think you'd get free shipping for it, and I think the 20% off 'MAGIC' code can still be used.

    Fantastic Review; I really want one of these, but "was" sensitive to vibrations so I stayed clear for a while. Now my body's becoming used to vibrators and it takes more power to get me where I want to go. I think I'm going to have to get this at some point. If all else fails I can use it for a back massager b/c my hubby suffers pain.
