Toy Review: Vibratex Mystic Wand

When I first talked to the owner of Venus Envy about doing a review for Venus Envy, she wanted to know if I would review the Vibratex Mystic Wand. Normally I am not a fan of battery operated clitoral toys. I have found the exception. Thank you for the chance to do this review.

I received the Vibratex Mystic Wand from Venus Envy Ottawa in exchange for an honest and fair review.

  • Silicone Head
  • AA operation lasts long time
  • Easy to control
  • Comes with storage bag
  • Fits well to body
  • Intense Rumbly Vibes
  • Shower Friendly (Splash resistant)
  • Light weight

Cons:

  •  Head is not removable

The Vibratex Mystic Wand is a true wand. I was skeptical about a battery operated wand, so much so that before I agreed to review it I stopped by Venus Envy to check it out in person. The rumbly vibrations seemed satisfactory and I was in, it takes 4 AA’s. Surprisingly it has the same strength as my other rechargeable mid sized wand, the Please Satisfy Wand. This excited me since one of the saddest things about my rechargeable wand is when it dies I have to wait a minimum of 30 mins and by then I am off doing other things.

I got home and took it out of the box and compared it to my Please Satisfy Wand, and it’s head was slightly larger. I went through the settings I noticed that it starts out low with a green light, followed by an orange light for the middle setting, and on the 3rd function, the strongest setting, there was a red indicator light. The next 3 functions were patterns, The first one pulsed in short medium strength vibrations ( – – – – – – ) the second was two short beats followed by one longer ( – – — – – — ) the third vibration pattern is a solid vibration that escalates slowly from off to high.

Using a mid sized wand with this much power was a great experience. It was small enough that it easily fit to my body and targeted the clitoris. It is also light enough that it didn’t take much effort to hold. I found that I could still use it to provide added stimulation by moving the wand on my clit. A great feature of this wand is that you can purchase wand attachments for it so that you can use the strong vibrations internally. The attachment made specific to this toy is a rabbit style, providing internal stimulation as well as clitoral.

I am surprised by the fact that this wand has lasted as long as it has with the batteries I first put in it. Shout out to Panasonic. I fully expected to go through a set of batteries each time I used the wand for 30 mins. Clearly Vibratex must of put some thought into the making of this toy. It manages to remain strong, while not burning through batteries in the process.

If you are looking for the perfect battery operated mid-sized wand that fits easily to your body, I recommend the Vibratex Mystic Wand. I know many people who have kids don’t like having toys charging and opt for the battery operated versions. This option will not disappoint. I have seen other options on the market and they do get close to living up to power of this toy.

This toy is available for $89.95 on the Venus Envy website, and if you can make it into the Ottawa or Halifax store, you can get it for $89.95 without having to wait for the item to shipping. I always recommend going in store if it is an option so you can get a first hand look of the toys before deciding to purchase. This is the reason I started blogging, so that people who didn’t have access to stores with educated staff could learn more about the purchases they want to make.

Venus Envy Ottawa:

Venus Envy’s staff were knowledgeable and inclusive. The walls each had labels to let people know what each section was all about. With my Vibratex Mystic Wand I received an information paper to tell me about my warranty and necessary batteries. They sell a variety of gender expression items, including a variety of cyber skin and silicone packers, binders and gaffs, as well as stand-to-pee devices.

As well as having inclusive products, Venus Envy also has workshops, so that everyone who wants to go to a workshop can, they are also sliding scale so that the attendee pays what they can.

Despite being a small store Venus Envy has a huge selection of stock. Each item they sell has a display model for customers to get a great idea of the product. All ready to turn on, making the experience easier for shy visitors.

Recently someone under the age of 18 had walked into Venus Envy to purchase a binder. (Chest restraint to flatten breasts). When their parents found out Venus Envy got in a bit of trouble. Since this happened Venus Envy has removed porn from the store making it okay for people of all ages to enter. This action proves Venus Envy’s true ideals. Not only does Venus Envy make the purchase of these items easier for all, they also have an initiative to help people to get binders and gaffs if they can’t afford it. If you want to donate to this effort you can go here. It is clear that Venus Envy is a store for everyone to feel safe and comfortable.

Venus Envy Ottawa is located in Ottawa’s LGBTQ village on Bank street. Venus Envy has a second location in Halifax if you can make it there, as well as being online at Venusenvy.ca.   Both stores are LGBTQ+ friendly, and accessible so all are welcome.

Pink B.O.B Rechargeable Desire Wand

The Pink B.O.B Desire wand is my first ever full sized wand I get to review for the blog. I was so excited to try it out. The benefits of using a full sized wand was that I could start to buying attachments for internal use of the strong vibes of a full sized wand. I also suspected that it would have a longer lasting battery than my mid sized wands.

Specs:

Price: $35.95 at PinkBOB.com
Material: TPR Blend & ABS plastic
Functions: 10 total; 2 Speeds, 8 patterns
Noise: Medium-Loud (They are transparent about this on the site)
Wand Strength: Intermediate (If you are new to wands)
Colour: Pink and White
Battery: Rechargeable (Can not use while charging, but lasts a while)

The desire wand has a similar design to most of the wands that are available. The head is made out of a removable TPR blend. The ability to remove the head makes it easy to clean. Similar to many wands, the head is TPR and that is a porous material. I would recommend using a silicone attachment over this wand to avoid bacterial problems. Clitoral wand attachment available here.

I believe this would be the perfect wand for someone who is uncertain about using a wand but want the aesthetic of it. I know before actually grasping the amazing strength of a wand I had seen it used in many porn videos. This wand has similar strength to my Please Satisfy Wand (a medium sized wand). It isn’t as extremely powerful as an original Magic wand, or a DOXY, but those are some of the strongest wands available. The price on this wand is part of the appeal of it. It is a rechargeable wand option for almost 1/3rd the price of the other options. Since I love pink this was a perfect option for me.

The vibration of the Desire wand is lower range than many full sized wands available, but is not lower than some full sized wands I have felt. It stays within the expected range of a large wand and it had a rumbly vibration that stimulates deeply. It has 10 total settings, 2 speeds: Low and High, and 8 pattern options. One of the benefits of using this wand over other wands is that it seems to be much lighter and easier to hold.

I chose the rechargeable wand over the plug in one which is also available for $28.95. The only drawback some people have about the rechargeable wand is that when it is plugged in it cannot be used. Honestly I have found the battery amazing. I have yet to charge it, and it has been used for approximately an hour and a half. It is strong enough that this was about 15 uses. Normally toys come about half charged to fully charged when they are received. I will always run my battery to zero before charging it the first time. I find it allows the battery to get properly charged. One thing I love about this wand is that when it is not being charged or used it has a plug in the charging port that protects the motor from having energy sent to it when it isn’t on, thus making the toy have a longer life. When the charging port is plugged the wand will not turn on, this is also good for travel.

I am happy to have this new option and it has become one of my go-to’s I love the rumbly vibes and ability to be used with most wand attachments. The battery is long lasting and that is perfect!

TL;DR:

For $35.95 the Pink BOB Desire Rechargeable wand is a cost effective, lower strength full sized wand. It is great for someone who wants to experience a wand but worries they will find the pricey options too strong. This wand is extremely rumbly and stimulates deep into tissue. It is light enough to be easier to hold than other stronger options.

Let go,

Toy Review: Please Mini Wand

image

Comes with a soft storage bag and charger cord. Has a beautiful design.

Pros:

  • Silicone
  • Rechargeable
  • Waterproof
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Intense Rumbly Vibes

Cons:

  • Not as powerful as large wand (DOXY or Magic Wand)
  • Can be too strong for certain people
  • Not for use of magic wand extentions

This was my first wand I have ever owned, and I absolutely love it! It is very strong and rumbly and everything I expected it to be. I needed this in my life. It isn’t as strong as a magic wand or DOXY.

I absolutely loved to use it clitorally, when combined with the Tantus Slicks I got recently it was a match made in heaven. The intense clitoral stimulation was great for helping swell the g-spot causing amazing sensation from my internal toys.

This toy has the intensity of the low-medium setting on the large wands. It is a rumbly as apposed to buzzy.  It is so strong that after a minute or two of use it feels overwhelming, and direct contact with the clitorous can be too much, verging on painful (but honestly I like it?). Luckily the wand has  8 different vibration intensitys. If the highest intensity vibration isn’t for you, then you can just click the button to a lower setting (I’ll be real, I rarely stray from the strongest setting)

I have seen many “mini wands” fall short on vibration and rumblyness. I am so happy to say this one did not fail me. Truthfully, I still want to try a stronger wand, but this one provided me long awaited orgasms. If you have read any of my other posts you may have noticed I don’t throw around the word orgasm. Truthfully, it takes a lot to get me off, this is why I gave in and made this purchase. It was definately worth it.

If you are choosing between mini-wands I recommend this one, it is rumbly and intense like a wand should be. It also has a reasonably sized head for stimulation. I have seen many wands fail to be intense as is expected from a wand.

The please wand has 8 intensitys. They do not change by much, to the point that when I originally bought it I thought it was defective until I realized that the 8th setting was much lower than the 1st. It comes with 20 different pulsation options, one being a solid vibe, you’re sure to find one or two you like. The short fast vibes sent an electric feeling through my body everytime it pulsed, I enjoyed this feeling, although my favourite and go to is a solid vibration.

Noise: 3/5 Drums

Vibration: Rumbly 4/5

Modes: 5/5

Battery: 4/5

Do not use with silicone lube. Use only waterbased.

I thought I was a wand girl, and this toy let me explore that and find out it was true. I still want to get a DOXY or magic wand, but this has become my go to toy for all alone time. If you are looking for a everybody friendly wand, Tantus inc. has made a lightweight ergonomicly designed wand called the Tantus Rumble.

If you prefer a strong buzzy sensation check out the We-Vibe Tango or the Jimmy Jane form 2.

Free the orgasm,
