What it Says on the Tin

The Magic Wand is a near mythical figure in terms of vibrators. It is a powerhouse and absolutely, positively will rock your world if you're ready. However, the old girl is showing her age. The Magic Wand wasn't designed as a sex toy, and it shows: it's awkward to use, noisy, and may be too powerful for many. It still has its place in the pantheon of sex toys, but, for me, it is a very occasional use toy and may not be worth the cash you'll drop on it.

Vibration. Period. Anything you want to stimulate (nipples, clitoris, feet, whatever), the Magic Wand is there for you. When you need to get off, fast, reach for your magic wand!

The Magic Wand is primarily for solo play, as its large size and cord do not make it conducive for intimate moments between partners. It is also not insertable (or at least, not recommended for insertion!), and absolutely cannot be used anywhere near water, as it does plug directly into the wall.

It honestly is also a fabulous non-personal massager, great for sore muscles in the back, shoulders, and neck. So, there is that, too!

Material / Texture

The Magic Wand is made of hard plastic and, initially, has a bit of a plastic smell. However, the smell wore off quite quickly. The head of the wand is slightly textured, enough so that it doesn't slip and slide around during use. It is also fairly inflexible, and I would not recommend trying to flex it, as you may break the mechanism.

Design / Shape / Size

This is not a sexy toy. In fact, it is much closer related to some of the first medical vibrators designed for alleviating "female hysteria." This is not surprising, as the Magic Wand really isn't designed as, or marketed as a sex toy.

The wand is also very big. The head is about the size of a good-sized apple, and the wand and head are about as long as your forearm. This can make for awkward moments during use. It can be a bit difficult maneuvering wand, cord, and delicate bits all at the same time.

In terms of discretion, it is incredibly discreet in its own way. Mine actually lives in the box, next to my bed. I have no problems with someone seeing it, as it is clearly marketed as a back massager. Now given the wand's reputation, I can imagine that some people would come to the "sex toy" conclusion almost immediately. However, there is enough plausible deniability there to make it less awkward than leaving your big old rubber dildo on the sheets.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Magic Wand has two settings: High and Blast Off. These settings are controlled by a switch on the body of the wand, and operation cannot be simpler. The positioning of the switch didn't seem to be a problem for me, although others may have different experiences.

The vibrations themselves are incredibly intense and constant (no fancy patterns for this toy!). In fact, I rarely use the highest setting unless I'm pretty much ready to go. Long-term use (more than a couple of minutes) actually numbs you up and makes it next to impossible to feel anything.

You will also hear this toy. In fact, your neighbors can probably hear this toy. It is extremely noisy and WILL attract attention during use. Definitely not recommended for dorm/shared living use (unless you don't care about that). Some people may even find the noise to be distracting enough to prevent full concentration on the task at hand, but I've not had that problem, personally.

Care and Maintenance

I absolutely do not recommend using the Wand directly on your naughty bits without putting a condom (or something) over the head. The hard plastic and its texturing make it near impossible to truly sterilize, and using soap and water on it is not recommended. Keep the Hitachi away from water! If you must use it directly on your clit and tackle, then toy cleaner is your best option.

I would not use the Wand with any kind of lube. Again, a direct current with no waterproofing and liquid is not a great idea.

Storage is actually pretty easy. While it is very big, it is also pretty discreet in terms of appearance, so you can easily bung it up in its box and shove it in a closet/drawer/whatever.

Personal comments

When I use the Magic Wand, it's generally because I'm pretty needy, short on time, and don't want to muck about.

I've actually never used the Wand directly on my clitoris. I don't dare. The vibrations are super powerful and are enough to actually numb my hands when I'm holding the wand. Instead, I typically use it over my panties (or even over top of jeans). As a result, it is not a precision instrument. It is to clitoral vibes what an air strike is to a sniper.

The truth is that the vibrations provided by the Hitachi may be way too powerful for a lot of people. I tend to require quite a bit of vigorous stimulation, but if you're really sensitive, I would stay away from the Hitachi, as it could become almost painful.

Since I've purchased it, I've used the Hitachi more frequently for actual back and neck massages than masturbatory purposes. It does wonders for knots in the back and cricks in the neck!
