One of the most popular categories of sex toys are the dual stimulators, or as they are more commonly known, the rabbit vibrators. They are often the first variation of vibrator that come to mind at the thought of enhancing solo pleasure but this comes with some complications. The famous episode of Sex In The City where Charlotte falls in love with her rabbit is a prime example of why these vibrators are so broadly known and why so many people think they are the best choice when shopping at a sex store. What many people don’t realise is that these toys are completely anatomy dependent. Not every rabbit suits every vulva due to the differences in anatomy. This can make finding the right one frustrating and expensive. However buying through Lovehoney gives you the option to send back the bunnies that don’t work with your hutch for up to a year after purchase with no questions asked.
A white and purple box arrived with a simple product shot on the front, description and diagram on the back and further product shots on the sides. Inside the box I found the VeDO Wink within some plastic casing and a product guide. It doesn’t give much away as it’s more of a small product catalogue than a user manual but there are some of the features listed within and everything else can be found on the box.
The Wink is made up of a silicone body and finished with a plastic handle. It’s completely body-safe, odourless, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. The silicone feels velvety and silky to the touch. It’s surprisingly luxurious considering the price tag but has the expected resistance to its silicone surface. I would recommend using a generous amount of water-based lubricant to remove this and aid penetration. Rinse before each use to remove lint from the surface and again thoroughly afterwards with soap to remove any fluids that may be trapped within the subtle ridged lines on the internal arm.
Unfortunately this is not a rechargeable vibrator, so get a pack of double A’s on hand. To insert the two required batteries, unscrew the base and drop them inside the compartment. Frustratingly there was no diagram inside indicating which way around the batteries should be placed so I had to swap them a few times to get the device working. The base has to be secured in place firmly after removing or replacing the batteries to ensure that it remains fully waterproof.
VeDo’s Wink has a two button control panel. The top button operates the internal arm and the bottom one controls the external. You can press and hold either button for a few seconds to begin. Tap the arm you wish to control to cycle through the speed options and press and hold to turn off. These arms can be controlled independently which means you can use this vibrator with one arm turned off completely if you wish. You can also use completely different settings on each arm if you prefer more intensity in one area and less in the other.
Each button has a number written on them to signify the amount of functions available in the arm that button controls. There are twelve settings in the shaft and three in the clitoral arm. The shaft has three constant modes of vibration and nine patterns whilst the external arm just has the constant modes. I prefer steady vibrations as I find patterns irritating but for people who do enjoy them there are a multitude of options to explore.
The three speeds in the external arm are buzzy but tolerable. I usually prefer my vibrations to be rumbly and deeply stimulating but as long as I’m not wanting to force the toy away from my clitoris because of numbing sensations then I’m happy. Considering the source these vibrations have a first-rate amount of strength behind them and although they don’t penetrate to all of the nerve endings in that area they can bring me to orgasm. It’s not the strongest external arm I’ve ever felt on a dual stimulator, but it is one of the better battery-powered ones out there.
As for the shafts vibrations, the story is similar. Also high-pitched, buzzy and surface level stimulation. The patterns in particular were high-frequency but as I don’t use them this wasn’t problematic for me. One thing I noticed about the shaft was that the highest intensity of constant vibration felt stronger than the highest intensity in the clitoral arm. I personally need my power surge the other way around so this wasn’t the best news for me although it would be ideal for people who prefer stronger internal vibes.
The internal arm offers up 6.75 inches of insertable length which makes it one of the longer rabbits I’ve come into contact with. A lot of the others that I’ve reviewed previously measure in between four and five and a half inches. The extra length is fun to have on days that I’m craving deeper penetration but it’s also a hinderance on other days. I may not have periods anymore but my cervix still sits lower at certain times of the month which makes the vaginal canal shallower and the toy more likely to cause discomfort. If you have a shallow vaginal canal, tilted uterus and/or struggle with length for other reasons then this wouldn’t be a good choice for you. The arm might be slim at just over four inches in circumference but it’s rigid and can batter the cervix when used at the wrong angle or time of the month.
It’s not an everyday occurrence to find rabbits that fit my body well, sometimes I find one that I can make work despite some problems but only a handful have been perfect. The Wink would have been perfect with less length as the clitoral arm is ideal for me. It’s short and rests in place over the clitoris, which is a rare treat. I’m not sure what the term is for an external arm that doesn’t resemble a rabbit-ear or two split ears, but whatever it’s called works well for me.
Achieving blended orgasms with the Wink can and does happen, but it depends on the positioning of my cervix, how sensitive I’m feeling and how in tune I’m feeling with the sensations. I didn’t have much luck with the internal arm stimulating the g-spot despite it having the level of firmness I usually ask for as there wasn’t enough of a defined curve for my body. I can make the magic happen from general vaginal and simultaneous clitoris contact if both arms are turned up to full strength as long as I’m properly aroused and well lubricated.
Overall, I have mixed feelings about the VeDO Wink. There are a bunch of positive things going for it such as the easy to use control panel, accurate clitoral fit, quiet motor, body-safe material, power levels and classic aesthetics but there are also a handful of negatives. Those things include being battery-operated, having a lack of precise curve below the head, having a stronger internal arm when a vast amount of people with vulvas get off on clitoral stimulation and the length. I like it sometimes, but other times I find it uncomfortable due to the positioning of my cervix and uterus. I would be able to recommend it to people who prefer deep penetration, like strong internal vibrations and want a slim shaft and advise those who like slimmer, thicker toys with more external power to look elsewhere.
You can purchase the VeDO Wink Rabbit Vibrator (£29.99) from Lovehoney.
