We-Vibe 4

10 Jan

we vibe 4 with remoteThe We-Vibe is a toy that I have always the loved the concept of but have never really enjoyed the actual usage of.  On paper it’s such a clever concept – a slim vibe that you can insert in order to gain hands free clitoral stimulation during penetration (or any other type of sexual activity). When the We-Vibe 2 came out, I rushed out and bought one and ran home with visions of joyful romps with my partner that didn’t require me awkwardly holding onto a clitoral vibe only to have it shoot out of my fingers and across the room because it had lube on it … er, or am I the only one that happens to? <_<  Anywho … we gave it a try and, well, it was just underwhelming. The vibration wasn’t very strong, the shape was awkward, it kept slipping and the insertable part was just plain painful for my partner during penetration. In short – it was a disaster. We shoved it in a drawer and I never gave the We-Vibe another thought … until now.

It’s like a little scoop!

The We-Vibe 4 came out amid a flurry of “new and improved” claims which I was skeptical of until I felt the display that was sent to the store.  The silicone is no longer  that shiny, sticky, dragging silicone that I’m not a huge fan of  but a beautiful, soft brushed silicone. The insertable portion has been slimmed down and flattened out to accommodate a larger range of bodies and has changed shape from the original ovular shape to more of a spoon or tear drop like shape to help it stay in better. The vibration? SO much more powerful! And the pulsation modes are great!  Could it be? Could this be the toy I had wished for all those years ago (well, ok 4) when I bought the We-Vibe 2? Yes! Yes it is!

First off, the We-Vibe 4 is a great toy for solo play. The vibrations are strong and rumbly and it makes very little noise. I can control the intensity via the remote so I don’t have fiddle around with the button on the toy itself. And I can use it in the shower! The toy is even better with my partner. Whereas with the We-Vibe 2, penetration with the toy inserted was painful for me and my partner, with the 4 penetration just felt amazing. The insertable portion gives an incredible amount of G-Spot stimulation and the toy doesn’t fall out during use. Also, because the silicone is softer now, there isn’t as much drag on my partner’s bits so we avoid the unfortunate and painful chafing that occurred with the 2 (and yes, we were using lube. It was still a one way trip to Chafeville.) My only major complaint with this toy is actually the remote. There isn’t much range on it (about 10 ft) and it seems as if you have to point it directly at the toy to change the modes. But this seems minor to me compared to everything else that this toy offers.

If you are like me and had high hopes for the prior We-Vibes and they fell short for you, give the 4 a try. As is true with all toys but very specifically with dual stim toys like the We-Vibe, it isn’t one size fits all. You may need to do some experimenting with what positions will work best for you but I think this toy will work well for a lot of folks. It certainly has earned a place of honor on my nightstand.
