I spotted this massaging vibrator from Adam & Eve a few years ago and while it looks extremely similar to the Hitachi Magic Wand, could it be an equal? My love for the Hitachi stopped me from cheating with another similar toy for years. However once Adam & Eve sent this for review, I had no choice. Besides my curiosity needs to be fed at this point.
I will admit it’s difficult for me to do this review without comparing it to the Hitachi Magic Wand because that’s what the “ultimate vibrator” has been for me for years. However, I also feel it’s important to review this item independently and grade it on its own performance, separate to the Hitachi Magic Wand. So I’ll do my best to keep Hitachi out of this, but I’m sure it will creep in every now and then.
It’s looks like a body massager through and through; so leave it out by the couch, next to your bed or happily throw it in with your luggage; no one will care or take notice. This also means it can be a great first time toy for partner sex, it doesn’t look phallic at all, so there should be no jealousy issues and it doesn’t look like a sex toy, so there should be no feelings of inadequacy. Sometimes toys that look like sex toys make a partner feel like they’re not good enough and that can cause resistance. This is just a body massager that can also be used to massage some naughty places. It’s also a great first sex toy because if you don’t like to use it for sexual pleasure, you have a great body massager to tend to all those other achy places instead.
So you receive maximum power from this puppy which is positive and negative. You need to make sure you always have an outlet available, so outdoor play can be tough. However, if you keep your Vibrator plugged in to an extension cord, like I do, you’ll have maximum range of where you can use it. Mine’s plugged in all the time, so it’s always ready to go.
It doesn’t feel cheap or flimsy either. I think I even dropped mine off the couch and nothing bad happened to it, it functions just the same. So the lightweight plastic and possibly absence of certain things inside the unit makes it lighter than the Hitachi.
So I love that it offers you only two options of vibrations: low and high. All the wacky pulse, escalate and roller coaster sensations have their place, but for the most part, I just want it to vibe, that’s what really gets me not only off, but damn aroused and excited. So there are 2 options to tickle your fancy. So far, I’ve mostly used it on low, unless I’ve had one too many cocktails, then ‘whiskey clit’ sets in and I need to kick it up a notch. I love power in a vibe, but the high setting for me, after all these years of vibing myself is still too much.
Even though it’s squishy, the material isn’t slick so you need some lube if you’re going to be moving it around on your body. It doesn’t glide as smoothly as the Hitachi does. There’s more friction. Is that a big deal? No, but these vibes are so similar, that it’s the minor details that makes them different and I’m all too familiar with the Hitachi.
It’s pretty loud and that might be were the difference in motor and lightweight materials come in. Maybe the motor isn’t insulated enough. It has a much higher pitched sound on the two speeds which makes the experience of using the vibrator drastically different. The lower humming sound of the Hitachi doesn’t make me feel like I’m using power tools to get off, where the higher pitched Adam & Eve Massaging Vibrator gives me a bit more of that feeling. It’s similar to when I use a vibe and I can hear the batteries rattling around inside the plastic unit. It can be annoying. So if you’re looking for really quiet, this one’s not it, you’ll definitely need to turn up your music or TV or whatever you have to muffle out the noise of the vibe. It lessens a little when held against the body.
I usually use a baby wipe on the head of the vibe and the handle. That seems to work well. I’ve also used a damp, soapy washcloth or spray toy cleaner. I’ve even sprayed a little rubbing alcohol on the head, wipe it away and then clean the whole thing with a damp, soapy washcloth. If you want to share it with others, you can use a condom over the head, it will fit.
Hell yeah!!!! And it got me off in the same way, with the same intensity as the Hitachi. I don’t only use it against my clit, but I like to explore my entire vulva with it. I’ve found that pressing the squishy head against my lips and vaginal entrance (sounds very enticing doesn’t it? LOL) provides extremely pleasant vibrations. So it’s not just for the clitty kids, move this sucker around and do some exploration. We all have our sweet spots and a smooth, powerful vibe like this can help you find them.
I’ve had my Hitachi Magic Wand for over 10 years now. It’s the original one I bought and I’ve used it over and over and over and over again. It’s the first vibe I grab during sex and usually the first vibe I think about using. I’m hooked on it. After 10 years, the Hitachi Magic Wand shows no signs of slowing down or pooping out. I’ve had the Adam & Eve Massaging Vibrator for a few months now and have used it about a dozen times or so and while it doesn’t seem to show any wear or tear, I can’t say without any doubt that it will last me over 10 years. I guess I’ll have to update this review then.
It’s discreet in appearance, making it easy to leave out and available. It’s an easier sex toy to incorporate into partner sex and is a good first time vibe because it has multiple uses, sexual & non-sexual. It’s a plug in vibe that offers you the ultimate in power, so much that I can only use it on low and it ultimately gave me and some other lady friends I shared it with, great pleasure! If you’re a fan of power, this vibe is an option of you. However, if you have a very sensitive clit, you may feel that this vibe, even on low is just way too powerful for any pleasure. It’s only real downside is the sound where, to me, it feels a bit cheap. If you’re looking for a vibe that’s discreet in appearance and almost silent while operating, neither this or the Hitachi is the way to go. The Adam & Eve Massaging Vibrator give you discretion in appearance only, but you’ll definitely need other sounds to cover up not only the use of this toy, but the orgasmic sounds that it will most likely cause you to create.
The Adam and Eve Massaging Vibrator has found its way into my life. While the Hitachi Magic Wand has a permanent home plugged in by my bed at all times, the Adam & Eve Vibrator has found a permanent home in my naughty sex toy play bag with its own extension cord and that means that deep down I feel this toy is good enough and pleasurable enough to share and recommend to others. In fact, if I didn’t have my Hitachi or if my Hitachi broke, this would be THE vibe stationed at my bed.
