The Hitachi Magic Wand (Original Magic Wand) is marketed as a personal massager, but we all know what we really use it for. Okay, I massage my entire body with it, but that’s definitely not why I bought it! When this item was released initially released in 1968 (yes, that long ago and still going STRONG), it was originally manufactured for relieving tension and relaxing sore muscles, but is most famous for its use as a sex toy.

Sex educator Betty Dodson popularized its use as a vibrator and masturbation aid for women during the sex-positive movement in the late 1960s. It functions effectively as a clitoral vibrator and is able to bring many people to orgasm. The wand is 12 inches (30 cm) long and weighs 1.2 pounds (540 g) with stimulation provided by its rubberized 2.5-inch (64 mm) head. This is important to note, as anything lighter is most likely a knock-off.

Be sure you’re getting the real thing.

Well known as the Cadillac of vibrators, the Original Magic Wand (as it’s now branded) is the world’s most recognizable sex toy.

What’s the Fuss About the Magic Wand?

I’ll admit, I’m a skeptic when it comes to the boasts of sex toy companies. Of course, they all want to sell their product. What impressed me the most about the Original Magic Wand is, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad review!

What makes this toy so popular is the type of vibrations it gives. They’re not buzzy at all, but rumbly, which for people like me, means an almost instant clitoral orgasm.

Though this toy isn’t made for insertion, you can purchase attachments that fit over the head to accommodate any insertion fantasy you may have. The covers also act as a barrier to the rubberized head (which is porous) to make clean up even easier.

There Has to be a Down Side, Right?

No toy is perfect, thought the Original Magic Wand comes close. But it does have its downsides. The head is made of rubberized material, not body safe silicone. It can’t be exposed to water at all, so cleaning is not the easiest. We recommend a soft, wrung out cloth to wipe it down after use. You can also spray a toy cleaner directly on the cloth and clean.

The Original Magic Wand is corded, which limits your movements a bit. The cord is six feet long, so you have a bit of wiggle room, but not much. There is a cordless version available now, which also features a silicone head, so it’s close to perfect.

If you’re looking for a discrete toy, this is not the one. It is LOUD. If you cover yourself with a blanket during use, it cuts down on the noise a bit, but not much. So if you need something your neighbors or housemates won’t hear, this isn’t the toy for you.

It’s recommended for use up to 20 minutes, otherwise, you run the risk of it over-heating. From personal experience, I can tell you, it does begin to get warm around the 15-20 minute mark.

But for me, that’s not a huge deal when I’m using it for clitoral stimulation. Why? Because never has it taken even 15 minutes for me to cum with this toy. Ever. If I get close to that mark, I’ve already had multiple orgasms.

The Bottom Line

Overall, this is a must have for any sex toy connoisseur. I highly recommend everyone have one in their bedside table. Being honest, if for some reason this toy doesn’t do it for you sexually, you’ll have one helluva powerful personal massager on your hands. I really do use it both ways! My husband has enjoyed the vibrations before a back massage at least as many times as I’ve enjoyed the sexual pleasure it brings.

If you choose the Original Magic Wand, the price is around $60 USD, which isn’t unreasonable. If you upgrade to the Magic Wand Plus (which has a silicone head and cord you can store), you’re looking at around $80 USD. For the ultimate upgrade, there’s the Magic Wand Rechargeable, pricing around $129 USD.

Being honest, the Rechargeable is not really worth it for the cost, unless you’re adamant about not being corded. The Magic Wand Plus will be your best option for body safe material with rumbles you’ll feel for years.

Sex toys have often been considered a solo adventure, especially for women. Using sex toys as a couple is a conversation that can be awkward for some, but well worth the results. When it comes to our pleasure, being open-minded is not a bad thing.

A few months ago, I learned through experimentation, my husband enjoys having certain toys used on him. There’s never been an issue bringing toys into bed with us, other than lack of toys, but he never expressed interest in having one for himself.

When Sex Toys and Your Man Are a Great Combination

I gave my first hand-job to completion to my husband back in October and added my vibrating bullet to the mix. While using my hand on his shaft, I placed the bullet under his testicles. It was a clear winner. Lots of lube, slippery hand up and down the shaft (paying lots of attention to the head) and a vibrator on his testicles was the perfect combination for ejaculation.

It wasn’t long after the epic hand-job we had our first experience together using a toy, on him, internally.

The same vibrating bullet from our first toy run came into play again. It’s the first time my husband ever had anything larger than a finger inserted in his anus.

After five years of being together and learning he won’t be judged, he was finally able to let go and experience the pleasure he’s desired.

Stepping Up Our Game With a Vibrating Wand

Since our first experiences, we’ve been lucky enough to add more toys to our collection. Being asked to review toys has been a blessing for many reasons, not the least of which is bulking up our collection and learning what toys we do and don’t like.

We have an awesome inflatable that’s become a go-to anytime we break out the toys. I can use it on him or he can use it on me. My favorite is using it to stimulate his p-spot. I love the orgasm this causes and the look of sheer ecstasy on his face.

Recently, we got a new vibrating wand to try. I’ll admit, I was a bit leery as I own a wand already. I wasn’t sure what owning two wands would do for me, but I was willing to try.

We’ve been due a toy night, so last night was the perfect time to test out our newest addition to the toy family.

Hubby requested to be tied up, so who am I to deny such a lovely request?

After trussing him up, I wanted to tease him a bit. He loves to tease me and make me wait and I wanted to return the favor, when he wasn’t able to do anything about it.

Yes, I’m evil.

Starting with our newest toy, the  mushroom head vibrating wand , I turned it on and ran it over his thighs. The first thing I noticed is the strength of the vibrations. Holding it in your hand, it feels like it might be too much. It does have seven different settings and I flipped through them all to test them out.

Now, personally, I’m not a big fan of the changing patterns for myself. It’s frustrating when you’re trying to get off to have the pattern and intensity changed. If we’re playing and not going straight for the O, then it’s awesome. But if I’m using it alone, I go for the single pattern vibration.

Once you place the toy on the body, the vibrations are diffused. Hubby said it felt fantastic across his entire cock and balls. I have to agree, as he was attempting to break the restraints to buck off the bed.

Taking Teasing to Pleasing

I had my fun teasing with the vibrating wand and decided to add oral to the mix. That’s always a winning combination and this time was no different. It wasn’t long before he was ready to come out of the restraints and get down to more fun.

Taking matters into my own hands again, I rode cowgirl for a while before letting him have his way with me.

It was time to let him test the vibrating wand on myself, so I could see just how great it is.

The large surface of the wand’s end covers a lot of area. I love how it covers my entire clit and the area around it, giving good targeted vibrations.

It’s curved shape fits easily in your hand and the curves of your body making it easy to hold while getting the pleasure you desire.

Due to the shape, it’s perfect for holding between your bodies while having missionary sex. It also worked well in doggy and cowgirl.

The Final O

After more orgasms than I can count, it was time to call it a night. Our new toy is an awesome new addition to our toy collection and definitely goes on top. We love that we can both enjoy it and use it in different positions. The curved shape makes it easy to hold without causing discomfort over time to your hand and the large head gives you diffused vibration over your body.

Talking about what you want with your partner makes your time together so much more fun. You’re in for the adventure of a lifetime when you have an open-minded partner. Don’t let societal pressures and expectations stop you from getting everything you both desire.
