Kicking it Old school: Le Wand Plug In Massager
Updated: Apr 10, 2020
If there is one thing that Alicia Sinclair and I bond over, it’s our love for fucking power- and this mother of brands is bringing in the fucking heat.
If there’s anyone who can pull magical items out of their ass (literally tho, check out B-Vibe), she makes it happen- and fast.
My Usual Le Wand experience
Owning the traditional Le Wand Rechargeable and the Le Wand Petite, they are staples in my bedroom and decor. Throughout my travels, I wouldn’t be caught dead without one of my wands. In my opinion, wands are the best form of clitoral stimulation- the broad heads help stimulate not only the clit, but the entire vulva. They are easy to grind against, use during sex, and a staple in BDSM play (hello forced orgasms).
The packaging on all of Alicia’s products happen to be one of my favorite qualities about them: They are tasteful, offer a traveling case, a super in depth guide, and most importantly… international plugs for wherever you want to get it on in the world.
An ode to the OG Hitachi, Le Wand Plug-In Vibrating Massager in Sky Blue is a guarantee of power, and no chance of dying on you mid-orgasm. While I would like to think I’m a responsible Le-Wand owner, I’m not a responsible sex toy charger… and it’s disappointed my clitoris more than once. With an 8 foot long cord, 10 vibration intensities, and 6 patterns… versatility is something Le-Wand products will never lack.
The travel case makes it incredibly discreet to travel around with a tripod sized orgasm weapon, and makes storage/ cleanliness of the product super accessible.
GET ON MY FREQUENCY
What does it mean to have a powerful wand? Well, you would be surprised to know that more power or heavy vibration doesn’t always mean more pleasure. Discussed over a lovely sushi dinner, Alicia explained to me that it’s not the "power" that makes the difference, but the vibrational frequency the product gives off. High vibrational frequency doesn’t always equal great experience- it finally made so much sense why some massagers feel painful and make me itchy. I remember back in my teenage days buying the most “powerful” wand a shop would offer…but it didn’t make me climax, it makes me wince with pain and just causes overall irritation to my vulva.
For my body type, that super abrasive vibration just doesn’t do it.
Le Wand is the only want I’ve owned thus far that I feel is incredibly powerful without crossing the bridge to overbearing feeling or irritation. You can start light or high, or build up: a choose your destiny story if you will.
Let’s Go Wanda
Yes, I named my Le Wand Wanda.
I always like to pair my Le Wands with a water based lubricant, but this time I wanted something slicker. I used The Butters Cocoa Butter from Peepshow Toys, which is an oil based lubricant (do not use with latex condoms). I had a feeling I would be doing a deep dive in my time with Wanda, so it was smart to use a slicker lube to protect my vulva.
The 8 foot cord is a god sent, I honestly didn’t really notice it was there. If you are in a situation where you may need an extension cord for it, absolutely purchase one.
Plugging it easily next to my bedside, I massaged my lube onto my vulva and put on Le Wands lowest vibrational setting. Now, I love power, but how in the hell was the 1st vibrational strength already so good? It was clear that the corded wand could give off far more power than the rechargeable wands because they are directly connected to a power source. I would say the first level of vibration compared to maybe level 2 or 3 of the cord free Le Wand: we are in for TROUBLE.
Working my way up to the 3rd speed, all I could notice was the ultimate rumble of this wand without sacrificing the effective stimulation of my vulva and clitoris. My fucking favorite part of any Le Wand Massager is the flexible neck, because it lets you really put your pelvis into it without hurting yourself. Even with the intense vibrations, I like to add a little circular, rhythmic movement with it: while simply holding it can get me there, why not add a Little Rock and Roll (as Betty Dodson does. Check out this technique).
Taking my sweet time, at about the 7 minute range I decided to get wild and just blast it…. I was in for the most surprise orgasm I’ve had in a long time! One where you have no idea it’s coming until it just happens- no build up, no queue, just power orgasm. The size of Wanda is magnificent because when your legs cave, you can still hold it onto your clitoris and continue to feel all the sensations. Feeling super intense after cumming, I had to take it off my clitoris to process the intensity of pleasure my body just went through.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed solo play with Wanda, but is Wanda convenient for partnered play?
During a drunk and fumbled night with one of my partners, he noticed it was already plugged in and ready to go on my bedside table. Applying a water based lube this time (don’t break your condoms y’all), I was ready to tackle this question. In my very intoxicated state, I can only describe as picking up Wanda and feeling like Thor when he picks up his hammer: we are ready to fucking rumble.
The size of Wanda actually didn’t get in the way, it was a staple to our shared pleasure! On my back I had my partner hold Wanda on my clitoris as he penetrated me- what a sight that is to see. During doggy style, I was able to prop it perfectly at an angle where it stool still against my clitoris, and the motion of penetration only added more sensation. Only problem was that I came too hard, and sort of collapsed from my doggy style position. Hot right?
Well, I was shaking (In a good way of course).
What Have We Done
I won’t beat around the bush, I have kind of forgotten about all the other sex toys I own. I keep Wanda plugged in more than my phone charger, and she is such a convenient reach to whenever I feel like taking a ride down pleasure lane.
The look, quality, packaging, and FUNCTION is immaculate. There is no doubt that the plug in version definitely has a more refined, direct type of power that caters to us vibration sluts. I also enjoy that It’s a super affordable wand, with the cord honestly not hindering the experience at all.
If you’re looking for your Wanda, it’s your time to shine!
