When I saw that We-Vibe were branching out from couples and clitoral vibrators into rabbits and g-spot vibrators I knew that was a sign of good things to come. What I didn’t know was that they were planning to release their first butt plug. I’ve been really getting into all things anal recently so this was some of the most exciting news that I could have possibly read about. I began to envision the Ditto as a butt plug with the motor of the Touch that had the bonus of a remote control. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one and see whether that prediction was accurate. Thankfully I didn’t have to wait too long to find out as the lovely folks over at Betty’s Toy Box offered me one to review.
It arrived in a small purple and navy box (these happen to be the two colours the product is made in) with a striking product photo on the front. The back advertises a few of the Ditto’s key features and the sides list relevant product information and a brief description. Inside the box I found the Ditto and its remote resting on a foam tray and the charging cable, user manual, warning leaflet and a sachet of Pjur’s We-Vibe Lubricant underneath. There was no storage bag which was an annoyance to me as We-Vibe usually include these and considering that this is an expensive plug I would expect one.
Charging is very straight forward. The Ditto has a magnetic charger which attaches to the points located on the base of the plug and a USB which goes into any available port. I wasn’t thrilled by this at first as the Tango and Touch’s magnetic chargers are frustrating and disconnect easily but this one turned out to be the opposite. It’s a huge improvement and is actually strong enough to remain attached to the toy even with some movement. When it’s charging a blue light flashes and this goes solid once the charge is complete. It takes roughly ninety minutes for a full revamp and this is supposed to give about two hours of use.
We-Vibe’s Ditto is made from a gorgeous supple silicone that is of course odourless, latex and phthalate free, non-toxic, odourless and completely body-safe. It feels smooth and luxurious to the touch but is possibly not as polished as some of their other products. The silicone feels a bit grainier than the silicone used on their other toys – more reminiscent of Fun Factory than the cushy silicone used on the Rave or Touch. It attracts quite a lot of lint as a result so make sure to rinse thoroughly before each use and obviously afterwards with soapy water or toy cleaner. You can use a 10% bleach solution for a deeper clean if more than one person’s butt will be introduced to the Ditto.
To control this plug, there are three methods you can use. The first is by pressing and holding down the singular button on the base for a few seconds then tapping further to cycle through the vibration patterns. I tried this one first but soon realized it was next to impossible to change setting when the plug is being worn. It’s fine if a partner is there to do it for you, but this only works if they can actually see what they’re doing so is only really possible in rear entry positions. The second option is the remote control. Press the up arrow to turn it on and the down arrow to turn it off. These buttons also control the intensity of the vibrations. The side arrows flick through the various modes.
The final option is by We Connect, the We-Vibe app. It no longer stores data without your consent or knowledge, so please do not worry about this or let it put you off trying it. My partner and I found this most useful as we’re in a long-distance relationship and like it when he can take control of my pleasure even when we are not physically together. Before you can do anything else, make sure the device is turned on and activate Bluetooth on your phone or tablet. Find each other and pair up, then follow the instructions on the screen. Press the control button to find the first function and start the vibrations. You can swipe from side to side to change functions or pinch and pull on your selected setting to change the intensity. It’s pretty cool.
I have never tried a butt plug with this sort of shape before. I’ve used those with round bases and t-bars mostly, but I don’t think I’ve ever even seen one with this L formation before. My partner amusingly told me that he thinks it looks like a surfer riding the waves. I really like this style as it feels incredibly sturdy and provides me with reassurance that it will stop the plug from travelling into the body. It is a good preventative base and I can’t see myself having any issues with it.
The plug itself is rather petite so it’s a toy we would class as an introductory plug. It has an insertable length of three inches and a maximum girth of three-point seven five inches at the widest point. I found it very comfortable to insert with a coating of Sliquid Sassy. It may have been designed with the novice anal players in mind but I see no reason why it can’t be enjoyed by all users regardless of experience. Its shape is perfect for PIV sex as it doesn’t get in the way at all and there’s no possibility of it getting lost if my partner gets too excited and pushes on it. This is something I worry about with small, rounder plugs.
We-Vibe don’t seem to know how to make mediocre vibrations and that is one of the reasons I adore them so much as a company. I’ve tried six of their products now and have been impressed with the power of each one. I’d say that the Ditto’s vibrations are a tiny bit weaker than the Touch’s but this could be due to the fact that there’s no squish at all to the Ditto’s silicone and this dampens the sensations slightly. I don’t feel that this is a bad thing though because the power is still above and beyond what I’ve encountered with other vibrating butt plugs so far. I also don’t need as much power in my butt as I do on my clitoris, so a small decrease in strength isn’t the end of the world.
I decided to use it as a clitoral toy first because I wanted to get an idea for the intensity. I wasn’t expecting anything to come from it other than knowledge about the product but it cosied into my clitoral hood with ease and the base made a useful handle to grip onto.
The Ditto has a pinpoint tip that I found perfect for direct precision. I adore pin-point stimulation and as the vibrations were strong I had no problems achieving orgasm this way. I was pretty shocked that I could reach a clitoral orgasm from a butt plug as that’s not something that’s ever happened to me before, but I think the shape has everything to do with why this plug works as well as it does.
Following that experience I opted to try this as a vaginal toy too. It’s a firm plug, so I felt that I may be able to get a good amount of pressure against my g-spot if I could angled it correctly. To my surprise, I again found myself writhing around in pleasure. It has an ideal amount of firmness to hit my sweet spot and push me over the edge and the length is perfect for reaching the places I needed it to hit. I didn’t need to thrust with it at all to reach a g-spot orgasm as a simple twisting motion seemed to work beautifully. Again, the base worked as a magical handle that made manoeuvring extremely easy.
As a butt plug, I really have nothing to complain about at all. It’s very comfortable to wear, doesn’t get in the way of other play and is a great size for warming up to larger anal toys or having anal sex. It provides a somewhat filled sensation when being worn and it’s certainly noticeable, but it doesn’t give that stretching feeling. If that’s something that you crave or prefer in an anal toy then I don’t think this one will be the right one for you.
It can be worn in two different ways – with the magnetic points on the base facing upwards or downwards. I have tried both and like the feeling of both, but I have preferences for which I like to use in certain scenarios. For example, I prefer to have the base facing upwards during sex as I find this the most comfortable and desirable for my body when being penetrated, but the other way is better for me when using the plug alone. I change sides depending on how I plan to use it and both provide fantastic sensations although upwards is my preference at the moment. It’s great to have the option to switch things up and keep things interesting as a plug is usually a one position only sort of toy. It’s one of my favourite aspects of this plug actually.
In terms of noise, I was very impressed. It’s near whisper quiet and it’s extremely rare for me to say that. I usually despise that term as it’s hardly ever true, but this one is genuinely low on the sound. It even dissipates whilst being worn, so it makes this plug an excellent choice for people who want or need privacy and discretion for whatever reasons. I’d be happy to recommend this to someone looking for a quiet vibrating plug although they may outgrow it quickly because of the size. It is quietest when used on one of the three speeds as the patterns (of which there are seven) are up and down with their frequencies and this makes them a bit louder.
Overall, I really hope that We-Vibe bring out a medium and large version of the Ditto at some point so I can continue to test my limits but maintain this level of rumbling and strength. I love so many things about it such as the multiple methods of controlling it, the diverse functions, the unique shape and sturdy base, the gender neutral colouring and design and the fact it’s powerful, body-safe, waterproof and quiet. The only faults I can find are the lack of storage bag and the fact I may outgrow it in a years time.
I received the We-Vibe Ditto ($129/£99.27) from Betty’s Toy Box in exchange for my honest review. Thank you! Affiliate links have been used within this post.
