I love a brand-new sex toy as much as the next guy, but that doesn’t mean I’m out here falling in love with everything that touches my dick. The devices in my dresser have to be slick, sleek, and sexy enough to make me feel like less of loser for the fact that I’m single. Fortunately, there are plenty of options to explore and some of them are even made for horny hermits like me.
Take the new ArcWave Ion, for example. It’s not exactly the most high-tech pleasure product on the market but it’s certainly getting lots of attention. That’s most likely because it operates in a completely different way that anything I’ve seen so far. But is this machine worth the money it requires, or did I get ripped off (again)? Let’s find out.
What is the ArcWave Ion?
Table of Contents
This thing is described as the world’s very first Pleasure Air™ stroking device for men but I’d venture to say it’s a whole lot more than that. Made by one of the most inventive sex toy manufacturers in the world, the AWI offers external pleasures through intuitive technologies that are integrated ergonomically into a compact, lightweight design. As such, the manufacturing company has already sold thousands of units worldwide, with their biggest customers being busy men on the go.
ArcWave Ion Review: The Main Features
The ArcWave Ion is designed to pinpoint the user’s penile pleasure centers for a more focused sensation. It thereby offers a conveniently customizable experience, with a gentle yet robust functionality that’s appropriate for men of all sizes and skill levels. This sextech phenomenon sends pulsating air waves right to the shaft, corona, and glands to create a clean and intense experience with every stroke.
It’s also one of the easiest male pleasure products on the market to maintain. That’s because it features a twist-off cap that doubles as a protector for the silky-soft masturbation materials. The device uses skin-safe silicone as the main component and provides an extra layer of convenience thanks to its waterproof properties. It’s almost completely silent too, which means you don’t have to compromise cleanliness just to keep it hidden from nosey bastards.
This thing is completely rechargeable as well. It uses a standard USB cable and requires a relatively short downtime before it’s ready to go again. The AWI features built-in controls over a palm-sized casing for better control and comes with a limited 2-year warranty from the manufacturer just in case something goes wrong. Overall, it’s an ideal sex toy for men with premature ejaculation issues, erectile dysfunction problems, or trouble finding pleasurable products for uncircumcised penises.
How Does The ArcWave Ion Feel?
The way you feel when using the ArcWave Ion will depend heavily on your ability to follow instructions. It’s not a complicated device or anything, it’s just that getting it to hit the right spot might be difficult at first. The Pleasure Air™ technology is a nice touch – far better in many regards than traditional vibrations or suction. However, it may not be powerful enough for some men, especially if their cocks are desensitized for any reason.
This device is also extremely lightweight, which may be bad news for guys who need extra pressure or who suffer from mobility limitations. It’s not something that can be used 100% of the time and it certainly doesn’t substitute real sex at all. The sensations mimic nothing in the real world and they’re not complex enough to satisfy every fantasy. However, the AWI is perfect for opening the quick release valve when it matters most.
What Comes in the Box?
You don’t get a whole lot when you buy the ArcWave Ion and maybe that’s because the device itself needs very little to do its job. Most lightweight, compact, rechargeable devices are packaged with very few accessories and this bad boy is no exception. Here’s what you’ll find in the box:
- The AWI Pleasure Air™ Stroker
- A recharging storage base (good for drying)
- A USB charging cable
- The user’s manual
- Safety instructions
- A small packet (10ml) of Pjur™ personal lubricant
You’ll still have to buy a bunch of other accessories to make this magic work. For example, the toy doesn’t come with any cleaning products and the charging cord is shorter than my patience. So, make room in the budge for extras because you’re gonna need them.
Meanwhile, you can purchase replacement parts at your heart’s content from the manufacturer’s website. They even offer substitute charging bases for about a third of the price that you originally paid for the whole shebang. Compared to other sex toy brands that do the same thing, that’s a relatively decent price point which makes the ArcWave Ion a smart buy and a lazy lover’s dream.
The Pros & Cons
Easy to use or not, there’s no such thing as a perfect pleasure product in this world. Men are vastly different; thus, they desire vastly different things. Therefore, it’s hard for any manufacturer to please everybody. The point is to find something that has more pros than cons, and I think we may have a winner with the Arc. Check this out:
- Discreet design for easier storage
- Made from hypoallergenic materials
- Completely submersible in water
- Ideal for subtle travel
- Compact enough for couple’s play
- Long-lasting battery life
- Perfect for men with mobility limitations
- Silent operations for optimal privacy
- Ergonomic button placement
- Compatible with water and oil-based lubes
- Can be used alongside other male sex toys
- Easy to use for beginners
- No special skills or equipment needed
- May not accommodate all penis sizes
- Requires constant manual power
- Slow charging battery
- Sleeve is not removable or interchangeable
- No texture for enhanced sensations
- Does not offer suction or vibration
As it turns out, this device has more pros than cons, so it’s a winner in my book. Besides, the downfalls of the AWI are pretty commonplace things. I don’t know of many toys than can accommodate all penis sizes while still being this compact and discreet. Plus, manual strokers aren’t necessarily bad because they offer a more customizable experience for most guys. As for the slow charging battery, a little planning goes a long way with that one.
When we’re talking about removable and interchangeable parts, that’s something relatively new in the sex toy industry. So, I don’t expect companies to automatically offer mix and match designs. The lack of suction is fine with me too, especially since the PA technology makes up for that and the missing vibes. I don’t even mind the smooth, texture-free surface either because it helps keep things simple enough for experimentation.
Tips For Making The ArcWave Ion Feel Better
Your experience with the AW Ion will no doubt depend on how you use it (and when). So, it’s important to learn ways to increase your pleasures, especially if you spend a couple hundo on a sex toy you probably don’t even need. Here are some of the ways I make the AWI feel better:
Keep it clean as a whistle.
The materials used on this device can attract airborne dust and debris pretty easily. That, in turn, can negatively affect your lube’s performance. So, clean the surface before and after you masturbate for best results.
Use the right kind of lube.
This toy is made out of skin-safe materials, but those materials aren’t compatible with every kind of lube. In fact, you probably shouldn’t use anything silicone-based with the AWI. Instead, opt for oil-based or (even better) water-based lubes like the sample that’s sent in the box.
Concentrate on the tip.
You’re supposed to be targeting your corona with this device, so please use it as intended for the most satisfying experience. That means concentrating the fun and functions on the tip of your dick. You can always use supplemental sex toys to make up for what this device can’t do, which brings me to my next tip.
Wear a cock ring or butt plug with it.
Create a full-body experience and have a melt-down of an orgasm by combining the powers of multiple devices. Stick the AWI on the tip of your dick after rolling a vibrating cock ring to the base. Or put a vibrating/rotating butt plug or prostate massager into your anus for a more robust climax.
There are several other things you can do to enhance your pleasures with the ArcWave Ion. For example, changing positions, playing with a partner, or watching porn while you masturbate can all help boost your boner quality.
