And though it seems bulky, “it’s actually the long handle and broad head of this wand-style toy that make it so amazing,” says Lisa Finn from Babeland. “That large handle houses the famed motor that makes the Magic Wand able to pack such a powerful punch — and the reach that it allows makes it accessible to use with a partner, and to provide some extra length for the harder-to-reach spots of the body during solo play. The broad silicone head offers more surface area for vibration to really coat the body instead of being super pinpoint and direct, allowing users to feel those sensations deep throughout the body.”
Additionally, as Finn explains, “the original has a TPR (a body-safe, yet slightly porous material) head, and the rechargeable has a nonporous silicone head.” That means this newer version is easier to clean and generally feels better against your most sensitive areas.
And the attachments! Oh, the attachments. From penis stimulation to a triple stimulator (clitoral, G-spot, and anal) to a perineum and prostate attachment to a harness that keeps the toy in place, there are seemingly endless opportunities to use the Magic Wand in various pleasurable permutations. It also has a remarkable three-hour battery life on a full charge, but note that after 20 minutes of continuous use, its auto-shutoff feature will go into effect.
One con (which, dependent on your preferences, may not be a deal breaker at all) is that the Magic Wand Rechargeable isn’t waterproof or splash-proof. If you’re looking for a top-dollar toy that is, and one that’s totable and elegant to boot, the Crave Duet makes for a worthy investment. The Crave is designed with tips that essentially hug your clitoris, with dual motors as well as different beveled edges that make it narrower on one side than the other, for different sensations. The body detaches to charge directly in a USB port and runs for 40 to 120 minutes on a 1.5-hour charge life. It features four patterns, four power modes, and a “turbo” setting, and our testers were impressed by its quiet motor and ability to build up to an intense orgasm. As one put it: “This thing is small but mighty. I love its unique shape and it allowed me to ~explore~ with it in other ways that, say, you can’t with something in a similar shape.” Its sophisticated leather case is a nice touch, and it offers an engravable option — good to know if you’re gifting this to a lucky recipient.
