I need some advice and I hope you can help me. I've heard good things about the Magic Wand, and I'm curious. Is the Magic Wand the same as wand massagers, or are they different? Which one is best to start with? Thanks!
Hello and welcome to Sh!
We can absolutely help you choose a magic wand vibrator.
The OG - Hitachi Magic Wand
First, a bit of Magic Wand history.
The original 'Magic Wand' was manufactured by Hitachi (listed in 1968). Originally designed to relieve tension and relax sore muscles, Hitachi had no idea what their product would become famous for.
American sex educator and Grandmother of Masturbation, Betty Dodson, soon figured out what the wand was really 'magic' for, and the rest is female orgasm history. Thank You, Sister!
Betty taught women how to masturbate and have clitoral orgasms with the help of Magic Wands until her passing in October 2020.
Hitachi ceased production of the massager in 2013 because of concerns about having the company name attached to a sex toy (booo!!). Vibratex persuaded the company to continue manufacturing it under "Original Magic Wand" and omitting the Hitachi name.
The Hitachi Magic Wand is the world's most famous massager to date.
So the Hitachi Magic Wand is the most famous, but it's made for the American market where voltage requirements are different. Instead, we stock wand massagers made for UK voltage (230V).
Magic Wand Massagers
Magic Wands, or wand massagers, are super-popular with our customers. They deliver deep, throbbing vibrations which rev you up to the core and can help with pain management.
There are several different brands and designs, but ultimately, Magic Wands have long handles with squishy ball-shaped heads. Wand massagers deliver intense vibrations and are the tool of choice for Power Queens.
Let's look at some options.
Cordless Magic Wands
Cordless sex toys are best when you don't want to feel restricted by being tethered to a cord and wall plug. These are USB rechargeable and travel well. If you have a USB port, you can charge up your bed buddy!
The downside is that you need to charge your cordless babe regularly, or it may run out of charge mid-sesh... (Not so 'magic')
The Belle wand massager is perfect for newbies. Magic wands can be somewhat cumbersome, but petite Belle is lightweight and easy to use. Belle offers 20 pleasure modes (wowzers!) and 8 speeds, so you'll *never* be bored!
Plug & Play Massagers
Plug-in wand vibrators are great if you don't usually move around the room during play. Most have fairly long cords, but it's worth considering if you have a wall plug near your bed.
Plug & play Magic Wands travel less easily. Ensure you check the voltage before plugging in your massager during travels (or you may be left with an expensive maintenance bill and a faulty sex toy).
The bonus with plug-in wands is that they won't run out of power until you do - they deliver pleasure for as long as you can take it!
And herein lies their popularity.
Plug-in Magic Wands can go for hours - so if you need hours of play to feel satisfied... Well, here's your perfect match!
Bestselling Wand Massager
Our purple wand massager is our most popular plug-in wand by far. It's full size (12.25 inches long) but light to hold and easy to manoeuvre.
This Magic Wand delivers all-over body pleasure and is a go-to for women who struggle with elusive orgasms. Having the deep throbbing of a wand buzzing away at the vulva and clit can help kick-start a stubborn libido, which leads to arousal and - fingers crossed - a thundering orgasm.
The purple wand offers 10 powerful modes, plenty to keep your clit happy!
Position the Magic Wand anywhere on your vulva and you'll feel the thrills intensely in your clitoris without direct contact - perfect if you find zingy vibes desensitizing.
Customer review: 'Great rumble and the head is flexible too which is fab when pressing against. Strong enough to begin over clothes before heading to the main event'
Luxury Massage Wand
If you want to go all-out with your wand experience, there is only one massager to consider: DOXY.
Doxy Number 3 Massage Wand is made from cast metal alloy body, adding to its retro-futuristic design. It's light to hold and easy to manoeuvre, and its smaller head allows you a better ability to focus the powerful vibrations where you really want them.
Doxy 3 offers 10 settings, including escalating speeds and pulse modes. Made in the UK, Doxy is a power tool to behold.
Customer review: 'Great, very powerful, and the metal finish looks really nice. Removable head makes cleaning easy, buttons are big, which is good'
Magic Wands for Pain Management
We all get aches and pains from time to time, and we like using our massagers to help manage some of the aches.
- Period pain - massaging the lower part of your stomach can help relax cramping.
- Backache - rolling the Magic Wand over your back feels... Well, magic, for lack of a better word!
- Neck ache - rest the massager against your neck and close your eyes for a few minutes.
- Leg & foot ache - massaging up and down the leg or under the soles of the feet can help revive tootsies and calves after a long day shopping, for example.
Of course, a massager isn't a doctor, so please book an appointment if you are feeling unwell or believe you have a more serious medical issue.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST: LUBE
All sex play becomes better with a few drops of lube. Even though a massager is for external use (not for internal use) and you may be super-turned-on, sensations will be more sensual.
The above massagers have soft silicone heads, so you want water-based lube. Coat your vulva in lube, and add a little extra to the massager for good luck :)
