Yes, I'm talking about the Original Magic Wand.
It all started a few months ago, when I was naive enough to think that there was one sex toy to do the trick, one holy grail free for all that would take care of everything my body needed it to with little effort on my part, and even less originality. I combed through the internet, and saw countless reviews touting the Original Magic Wand as an excellent beginner vibrator, and the only toy you'd ever need. Well I'm bringing these pieces of "advice" to a halt, I am saying here and now to stop suggesting this vibrator to beginners.
This is one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful vibrator in the world. Why would you suggest it to a beginner? Do you want to give them nightmares for the rest of their lives where the wand is chasing them, numbing them until they are numb with regret? (thankfully the cord on this thing prevents it from chasing after you, but the buzzing sound it makes might cause your roommate to think that you're getting it on with a power tool)
It's not even supposed to be a sex toy- it's meant to be a muscle relaxer. It has an obnoxious cord that plugs into the wall, it's heavy, and has two settings- I'd like to ejaculate in a minute, and I'd like to ejaculate right now and not be able to feel my clit for 10 minutes. It's also not safe to attempt insertion unless you have an attachment for it, but really, at that point just get an insertable vibrator.
Recommending this to someone as a "beginner" vibrator is like telling them you're going to take them on a rollercoaster, but then you roofie them and take them skydiving instead. So just don't. My vulva isn't cynical enough to resort to this sort of power- yet. It's a great toy for some, but it has to be at the right time. If you're just starting out, this vibrator isn't for you. But if you've tried a wide variety of external toys and they're just not doing it for you anymore, then by all means, get this beast and some attachments that can give it more variety.
If you're interested, you can get it here at Good Vibrations, where you can be absolutely sure you're getting an authentic one, not a counterfeit model.
