Quality orgasms aren’t as hard to come by as they once were. Back in the day, decent sex toys were difficult to find, not to mention virtually impossible to afford. These days, however, there’s almost no end to the things a well-educated pervert can’t do. In terms of pleasure products, the wand vibrator seems to be maintaining its popularity in lieu of other, more high-tech competition. So, what makes them that amazing and are there any good examples?
I recently had the pleasure of trying out a bunch of different wand vibes, one of which was the Lovense Domi Wand. I didn’t have many expectations upfront, mostly because I’ve learned how much of a bad idea that is. I did, however, have a ton of criteria to compare the device to. High-tech or not, I wanted to see it for myself. High-quality vibrating wands aren’t as prevalent as you might think. And as someone who has experienced nearly every marital aid and accessory on the planet, I knew it would take an amazing product to get me off better than my partner could.
There are a ton of options out there, but here’s what I think you need to know about this one:
What Is the Lovense Domi Wand?
Described as one of the world’s mightiest mini machines, the Lovense Domi Wand is a handheld vibrator that produces a wide range of pleasurable sensations through direct external contact with the body. Viewed as more of a muscle massager than a dildo by some, this incredible device is most certainly a sex toy and is said to perform best as such. Ideal for both male and female users, the powerful mechanisms are designed to offer a pungent punch to the private parts by way of customizable settings and unique ergonomics. So, is this wonder wand all it’s cracked up to be or did somebody lie to us?
The Main Features
The LDM, as I like to lovingly call it, has a bunch of user-friendly features that make it one of my favorites (despite my somewhat unremarkable first impression). Not only is this well-balanced thingamajig made out of two durable skin-safe materials (ABS and high-grade silicone) but its also silky smooth on the top yet equipped with slight texturization on the handle for improved control. It cycles through 10 different vibration patterns and has three distinct intensity levels to explore. Everything is controlled via the built-in buttons and/or the wireless remote control, plus the battery is fully rechargeable and it features absolutely zero cumbersome cords or wires.
The overall ergonomics of the Domi are most noticeable when the toy is in use, and boy do they shine when that happens. Not only is the handle well placed and equipped with a perfectly positioned control interface but the fact that the device itself is only about half the size of most competing models helps make it easier to move around. It features a reinforced neck for optimized pressure and uses dual rotating heads for some amazingly strong and rumbly stimulation. I thought the optional light ring was a nice touch for visual feedback too, especially when you’re using the app or engaging in long-distance couple’s play. Best of all, this toy uses Sync-to-Music Technology which means you can jam out with your clam out in new and exciting ways.
What Comes in the Box?
With this particular sex toy you only get the bare essentials, plus the packaging isn’t all that great. For that reason, this thing probably wouldn’t suffice as a romantic gift unless you repackaged it inside another container. Within the rather commercial-looking box you’ll find the following objects:
- The Lovense Domi Wand
- A USB charging cable
- A set of instructions
- Access to the free smart phone app
The app is probably the most useful piece of content aside from the charger, plus the app is fully compatible with every mainstream operating system on the market. Be sure to register your machine within the first 30 days of your purchase though, because the manufacturer offers a money-back guarantee for up to a year. Keep in mind that you don’t get any lube or toy cleaner, so stock up to can keep your massager in top working order for as long as possible.
I ordered my LDM from on unnamed online source and then waited the mandatory eternity until it finally arrived on my doorstep. Fortunately, the merchant shipped it in an unmarked box because my parents were visiting at the time and that would not have gone over well. I quickly tucked it inside the foyer and shuffled off to dinner with them, forgetting all about my little monster waiting at home. As soon as I walked in the door, I made an excuse to go to straight to the kitchen where my box cutters were. Of course, everyone in the entire house followed me. Thinking I could get away with it anyway, I proceeded to open the package while everyone was standing right there. I regret nothing, mother!
Anyway, my first impression when I saw the Domi Wand was that it looked just like a microphone, not a sex toy. However, I was obviously the only one who thought that. So, I immediately shut myself in the bedroom and locked the door before opening the rest of package. I hoped with all my might that the machine wouldn’t sound like a jet engine when I turned it on; that’s one of my biggest pet peeves. Much to my chagrin, it was louder than I anticipated, alerting my partner in the other room. I didn’t lose my shit too quickly there, but only because this thing is part of the brand’s “Programmables” lineup, which means it’s designed for customizable couple’s play as well as solo stimulation.
We make sure everybody’s settled in and we sneak back to our bedroom to test this bad boy out. First things first, he puts it on the lowest possible setting and some arbitrary vibe pattern starts pulsating on my pussy. The more pressure he puts on this thing’s head, the more intense the sensations become. He hands it to me, I take the reigns and he starts downloading the app so he can control things from afar. I can’t even imagine what he must have in mind; the thought of it makes me blow my load for the first time. He wipes me down, shuts the light off and starts experimenting the app – florescent lights beaming from the toy to match our rhythm. Things get to loud so we slap on some music. . .
It completely slipped my mind that the Domi Wand had a Sync-to-Music feature until my partner began sending “Top 40s” tingles through my body from across the room. Little did anyone in the house know, we weren’t in there doing Jazzercise. Inspired by all the different options, I asked my partner to let me use it on him. As a result, I’m pretty sure my hubby has a new obsession with anal play and prostate stimulation now. This thing is like a gateway drug for other sex toys. It’s certainly not the most powerful or the fanciest pleasure device I’ve ever encountered, but it definitely has a noticeable presence and a remarkable work ethic. Our favorite thing to do with it is stick it between us during rough sex. I personally like to shove it between my legs and give it a squeeze with my thighs. There’s just something so satisfying about exercising that kind of pussy power without restraint.
The Ups and Downs
I try to remember, as you should, that there’s no such thing as an absolutely perfect product. No matter how hard manufacturers try, mankind is just too diverse to ever be satisfied with one single sex toy. And even if that product was eventually invented, we’d still find something to complain about on it. Meanwhile, the Lovense brand is offering up a high-quality vibrating wand with the following ups and downs:
- Free downloadable smart phone app included
- Option to reset button cycles within app
- Splashproof body
- Made from skin-safe materials
- USB rechargeable
- Free tech support
- Not compatible with other sex toys
- Does not sync with online porn content libraries
- Noisy motor
My day ended with mixed feelings about the Lovense Domi Wand. First of all, I wasn’t impressed by this device’s overall execution. I felt like it was rudimentary and ridiculously loud. However, and this is a big “however,” the toy never once failed to get me off. And while it seems to be made primarily for external stimulation of various erogenous zones, its body-friendly size makes it appropriate for some shallow penetration experimentation. So while it may be a noisy little bugger that’s only half the size of its competition, the power packed inside this mini wand is downright amazing. Overall, the handling is superb, the power is commanding, the button placement is ideal, and the price is just right for almost any budget. That’s a winner in my book.
