Will I ever get bored of suction toys? No, probably not. That’s why my ears pricked up so quickly when I heard that Womanizer would be releasing a new version of their popular pressure wave device. This one is called the 2 Go and is the fifth model to join Womanizer’s repertoire. You might be wondering what else I could possibly say about this brands products at this point, but I’ve concluded that all of the models are so darn different which leaves me with tons of differences to comment on. The technology in each of the models may be the same, but ultimately the sensations and the way my body reacts are not.
It was presented in a clean white and gold box with the Womanizer branding on the front. It’s classic and understated, but I think that it’s nice enough to give as a gift as is. Inside the box I found the 2 Go alongside the charging cable and user manual. I had expected to find a larger head inside the box as these as usually included, but I couldn’t find one at first. It had been pushed up into the back of the tray that the toy was resting on so I had almost missed it. There’s no storage bag or case included, but as this device comes with a cap to cover the nozzle, I don’t think it was necessary.
The model that I received arrived with some charge but as I wasn’t sure how much I decided to give it a freshen up before taking it on a test run. To do so, you have to open up the covering over the port on the base and plug in the jack. Then place the USB into a suitable port and wait for a flashing green light to appear on the Womanizer. It takes approximately two hours for a full charge and you’ll know that it’s finished when the light turns steady. This provides up to 240 minutes of use, although of course this depends on the settings used. If the device begins to flash red at any point this indicates that the battery is running low and needs to be placed on charge. I love this as I’ll never be caught out thirty seconds away from a climax.
The Womanizer 2 Go is made up of a glossy plastic body and a pink silicone head. Both of these materials are latex and phthalate free, non-toxic, odourless and completely body safe. It’s waterproof, which is something many of us have always asked of Womanizer and they’re starting to deliver that with their newer models. The manual advises to clean the device by removing the head and rinsing out the pressure chamber. It says that the device should then be switched on and ran at high intensity for one minute. Shake out all of the water in a sweeping motion until the gurgling noise dissipates, turn off the leave to leave to dry. As for the heads, you can use good old soap and water or bleach/boil them for extra peace of mind. I’d recommend the second method if two clit owners will be using the 2 Go.
Before I go any further into this review I think I need to address the elephants in the room. The appearance and the size. The presentation of the 2 Go is completely different to the other designs that Womanizer have made. It doesn’t resemble an ear thermometer at all and I think the colour options are lovely. I chose the white and gold version as I felt that was the most luxurious and attractive, but it also comes in black and gold and green and pink. There are no leopard print patterns or gemstone buttons in sight, so I’m rather satisfied with the way that it looks. I hope future designs will follow in this direction rather than going back to the crocodile prints of the original W100.
I am not the first person to comment on the dimensions of the Womanizer 2 Go and I definitely will not be the last. I had heard jokes about the size before I received my own device and I thought that people were exaggerating, but it turns out that the one-liners are all true. It is comedically large for a lipstick shaped sex toy. I have previously tried Lovehoney’s Oh! Lipstick Vibrator so I decided to compare it the 2 Go and was shocked to discover it was at least twice the size of it.
I can see why it might need to be larger than the average lipstick vibrator to hold the required technology inside, but I do feel that this sort of defeats the purpose of a disguised design. It doesn’t look discreet enough to be passed as a lipstick in my opinion and I don’t know anyone who’d believe this was a cosmetic. I feel that my friends would quickly guess that this was a sex toy trying to pass off as a lipstick, and they’re not totally clued up in the world of toys. I would say that it looks more like a classy fragrance bottle when the cap is on.
The 2 Go is not much smaller (height wise) than the W500 which again, makes the discreet design a bit redundant in my opinion. Having said that, I don’t leave sex toys lying around outside of my bedroom so discretion isn’t too much of an issue for me. I don’t really leave my house to travel, although I’ll admit that I probably wouldn’t take this on the go if I did. This is due to the cost, rather than the dimensions or shape. I wouldn’t want to risk losing it, so I’d take the more replaceable options like the Pro 40, Satisfyer 2 or the Satisfyer Deluxe. I wouldn’t be too bothered if I lost the latter two.
As for the controls, there’s only one. A singular button located on the base. One press will turn the toy on, each further tap will cycle through the six available modes and after this it returns to the lowest intensity. I do have a preference for multiple buttons on my sex toys, as I like to have an on/off switch and an up and down arrow to change through the intensities as I desire with the option to go back a setting if needed. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lipstick shaped sex toy with more than one button (hell, finding them with more than one speed is difficult) so I will give Womanizer a pass on this occasion. I would love the multiple buttons back on future devices though.
Down to the nitty-gritty now, let’s discuss the sensations. I found it difficult to even get to the point of feeling them at first as it was hard to locate a way of holding the device that was both comfortable and effective. The original nozzle is slightly different to the oval shape of the nozzles on the other versions of the Womanizer, which took some getting used to. I had to adjust a few times to get it to sit over my clitoris properly. This was made more difficult by the glossy finish that the toy has as it kept slipping out of my hands.
Eventually, I learned that holding it upside down so that the button pointed upwards towards my belly button was the best position for me. When I turned it on for the first time I was taken back. I was expecting the subtle, gentle intensity that the other four models offer, but this version doesn’t really have them. It starts off at a more medium level than the others, which makes me think that it’s probably not the best choice for those who have never tried a toy like this before. I would prefer to recommend the more varied Pro 40 as a first time Womanizer.
The sensations are similar to that of past models once I’ve found the correct positioning but I did note that it definitely felt more intense. I have needed to switch to the larger head with past versions in order to get more than one orgasm as I became too sensitive with the original head, but due to the change in nozzle shape, I can actually get off comfortably two to three times with the smaller head. I get quite sensitive and tingly afterwards as the stimulation is quite precise and the cool air sensation heightens that further.
The second (or XL head) would be great for those who have bigger or buried clitoris in my opinion. It has quite thin, rounded edges and the perfect amount of open space in the centre to cover most clits. For me, I found this head reduced some of the intensity as it wasn’t as precise as the first head. I have a smaller clitoris, so I sort of expected this once I saw the size of the second head. I felt like I needed to up through the intensities faster with the XL than I did with the regular. I can use settings two and three comfortably whilst still reaching intense orgasms with the first head, but I need setting five and six to get off with the second.
Overall, I think the Womanizer 2 Go has been the most surprising model so far for me. It looks kinda comical because of the size, but don’t let that fool you. This thing has great levels of intensity and I was amazed that the smaller head allowed me to reach multiple orgasms this time around. I still lean towards preferring the Plus Size, but I prefer this to the W100, W500, Satisfyer 1, Satisfyer 2, Satisfyer Pro Deluxe and the Femme Fatale Clitorizer, so that should tell you that this is a suction toy worth trying.
