Review: Partner Whale Couples Vibrator

The term “couples vibrator” is one that sparks a great deal of debate on social media, blogs and forums. This is because these types of sex toys tend to be inclusive to one particular type of couple (a straight, male/female partnership) and don’t vouch for other couplings. I’m not majorly fond of the term myself but for the purpose of this review I shall be using it as this toy has clearly been designed with a couple in mind. I bet you guessed that based on the name Partner though. I do think this was intended to be used by a straight pairing but I believe that anyone in a partnership consisting of a vulva, clitoris and something penetrative (be that a finger, a penis or a dildo) could potentially make it work.

I haven’t tried many couples vibrators over the past couple of years that I’ve been reviewing, but the handful I have tried have all been at the higher end of the pricing scale. I was intrigued by the Partner range for that very reason as all of their current models come in at entry-level to mid-range price tags. I understand that not everybody wants to, or can afford to, splash out over $100 on a We-Vibe Sync or Classic, so I had high hopes that one of these models would be good enough for me to recommend as a more affordable alternative. I have tried all three of the existing models now so it’s time to answer the big question. Which one is the best? The Partner? The Partner Plus? Or the uber cute Partner Whale?

Arriving in a white and blue cardboard box with a glossy product shot on the front and back, I was pleased with the presentation. The images were tasteful and gave off a welcoming, non-intimidating vibe that would be ideal for those who may be new to the sex toy scene or introducing a toy within their partnership for the first time. The box lists some key features on the sides such as the number of functions, materials used and the fact that it’s waterproof. Inside, I found the Partner Whale, the charging cable and a user manual. There’s no storage included.

Made from a combination of velvety soft, smooth silicone and a touch of abs plastic, there’s no concerns about the safety of this toy. It’s non-toxic, latex and phthalate free, odourless and hypoallergenic.   I expected the Partner Whale to have some drag to its silicone body because of the ridged texture on the internal arm but there wasn’t much at all. It has some, as silicone always does, but nothing that a quick coating of water based lubricant couldn’t remove. I lube up both the internal arm and the area of the external arm that makes contact with the clitoris for comfort. After use, I give it a thorough rinse with warm soapy water and leave it to dry.

It is a rechargeable vibe with a USB connector on one side and a magnetic cap at the other which attaches to the corresponding prongs on the toy. The control panel flashes whilst the Whale is charging and the light goes solid once complete. The manual states that each charge should take around two hours, which I’ve found to be accurate, and this should provide up to sixty-five minutes of use. We’ve found the use time a little less but we tend to use it on the high power speed consistently.

There’s only one button on this vibrator and that is located on the external arm. Press it once firmly for a few seconds, wait for the control panel to light up and the vibrations will begin. Tap to cycle through the ten available functions and press and hold down for a few seconds to turn off. One button means it’s easy to understand but it also means you have to scroll through all of the settings if you miss the one you were looking for. I’d have loved a central power button with up and down arrows to change settings more conveniently. I hope this will be the case with future Partner vibrators.

The Whale has the same irritating order of patterns as the other two models that I tried. The manual states that pressing and holding the button down for two seconds will start the vibrations at the lowest massage level but from my experience with the Partner range so far, this isn’t true. All of them have started on high intensity before going down to medium, low and then the seven patterns. This is deeply confusing to me as the majority of people seem to like to start at the bottom and work up to full strength, not start on full and crawl back down.

I personally whack my vibrators up to full power straight away on most occasions so this wasn’t majorly problematic for me but I can see why it would annoy other people who prefer the opposite. I like a ton of strength with rumbly vibrations but this combination seems to be hard to find in these types of couples vibrators. Partner’s Whale doesn’t have any depth to its vibrations whatsoever. All of the sensations are surface level and buzzy. They couldn’t reach most of my external nerve endings. They do have a reasonable of strength to them and the buzzing is tolerable but it takes a while for me to get off from them.

The Whale has a very similar shape to the Partner Plus but the dimensions are different. The external arm is 3.5 inches around at its widest point which covers the entire clitoral area. The internal arm has 2.3 inches of usable length and a maximum girth of 2.5 inches. This is not very wide at all so I expected my above average partner to have no problems inserting him underneath it. My partner has a larger girth that provides a full feeling at the best of the times so I did feel rather like I had reached full capacity with both of them inside. If it had been much wider then I think I would have struggled to accommodate them both but it was manageable with warm-up and splashings of lube.

I can’t say that our encounters with the Whale have been the most comfortable sexual experiences for my partner. He felt that thrusting was difficult with this toy as the external arm kept sliding out of position each time he pulled back, poking his schlong. I think external stimulation is the most important part of a couples vibrator so the fact that the pressure kept disconnecting as the external arm moved back ruined the experience for me. This was not an issue with the Partner or Partner Plus so I can’t put my finger on a reason why this occurred with the Whale. I would have thought that the subtle texture made for better grip than the silky soft silicone that the others have but apparently not.

One thing I loved about the Whale was the internal arm. I wasn’t fond of the squishy, flexible arm that the previous models had and Partner have improved on that massively with this version. It has a firmer shaft that gives me adequate pressure and the added bonus of ridged texture on its inside. These ridges aren’t defined enough to bring me to climax on their own but I always appreciate some love and attention against my front wall. I felt the shaft was just about long enough to hint, grind and push against my g-spot in sync with my partners movements but it may not fit everybody’s anatomy in the same way.

Overall, I think the Whale has adorable aesthetics, a fitting colour scheme, better firmness than the previous two models and fun texture to add some extra flavour. It has all of the benefits of the others such as body-safe materials and being rechargeable, quiet and waterproof. It unfortunately also has the downside I’ve commented on previously – buzzy vibrations. For the next model I would love to see a change in motor. Low frequency, rumbly vibrations would be fantastic. I’d also love to see a three button control panel for ease of changing the settings. If those two things were combined with the shape of the Partner Plus, the dimensions of the Partner and the aesthetics and texture of the Whale then I think I’d have found my perfect match.

Review: Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl Costume

I’ve been trying to cut back on the amount of lingerie reviews that I post to my Lovehoney account as I seem to have reviewed so much that I’ve made my profile load slowly – oops! As a result my still-to-review box has been overflowing with gorgeous pieces that are waiting to be written about. I decided it was time to write something new and as I rooted through the options I came across this piece and knew I had to talk about it. The Dreamgirl Tartan Tease is one of my favourite costumes that I currently own and certainly one of my best schoolgirl related outfits. It is often a struggle to find the right combination between sexy and slutty with certain costumes but this particular one has struck the perfect balance.

Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl CostumeArriving in simple fashion, the Tartan Tease comes inside a cardboard sleeve with an image of a model wearing the outfit on the front and back. The outfit was wrapped in some plastic inside and the included novelty glasses were in their own plastic pouch. I hadn’t actually realized glasses were included as I assumed they were just a photo prop (as is often the disappointing case with outfits like this) so I was pleased to see them as I unraveled the plastic.

I’ll keep the quality and materials section of this post short and sweet as it’s important to know, but boring to read. The top portion of the outfit is made from a stretchy mesh. The bottom portion of the outfit consists of a blue, black and grey plaid combination and there’s also a tie attached to the upper half made from the same fabric. The glasses are made from a hard plastic. The outfit felt great quality and had no obvious flaws. The glasses were also surprisingly sturdy considering the fact that they’re a novelty extra.

I own a multitude of schoolgirl costumes but this one is the only ‘all in one’ type. Most of the ones that I own are a skirt and cropped shirt combo, whereas this one is more of a dress. It is a one size garment so I had concerns that it may not fit. It is said to accommodate a size six to sixteen and I wear a UK four. I did not mind taking the risk as Lovehoney have a wonderful no questions asked returns policy for any and all items that are not suitable. It fit me beautifully which leads me to believe that it would be tight-fitting on someone who wears a sixteen. It isn’t as stretchy as I thought it would be. If you wear fourteen or above then the plus size version might be more comfortable for you.

Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl CostumeThe shirt is very sheer. It doesn’t leave much to the imagination, but I suppose that’s the idea. I personally wear nipple pasties underneath to add some anticipation and not give everything up straight away. I find this has a better effect on my partner and teases him efficiently. It doesn’t provide any bust support whatsoever, which was fine for me as I have a basically non-existent bust and don’t need it. However, you could wear a nude or white bra underneath this if wanted or needed. It makes for a nice alternative to the pasties too.

It’s extremely short. Just skims past my butt and I’m only a mere five foot. If you’re taller than me (which lets face it wouldn’t be difficult or shocking) then this may show off a lot of cheek. If you’re around 5’11 or above then I suspect that this outfit will be more of a shirt on you and may not suit the designed aesthetic. It is a flowing style of skirt which skims the hips nicely and makes the wearer’s waist look smaller and their thighs slimmer. It doesn’t cling to the stomach or draw attention to the area at all which I thought it might due to the material. It’s incredibly flattering and super-duper sexy.

Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl CostumeIt fastens via a velcro strap around the neck so it’s quick to put on and tear off. This makes the fit adjustable along with the aid of the elastic band around the top. This is comfortable and pretty supportive. It doesn’t dig in and provides a decent amount of stretch to accommodate several sizes.

It doesn’t come with suspender straps but you could wear silicone banded hold-ups with or wear a flat suspender belt under the skirt and attach stockings that way. I opted for a slightly different option and wore suspender tights (crotchless of course) and some Pleaser heels.

Overall, I think this outfit is lovely. I’m fond of the colour scheme, the design and the fit. There wasn’t anything particularly wrong with it. I can still remember my partners reaction when I wore this for the first time and I can feel myself melting at the thought of those memories. His jaw dropped as I entered the bedroom and I couldn’t help but giggle. He managed to squeeze out a few words before fetching our favourite spanking tools and throwing me on the bed. Those words were “May I have a word with you miss? I believe you’re in three major violations of our dress code”. I never did find out what the third violation was…

You can purchase the Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl Costume (£29.99) from Lovehoney. It is also available in plus size for the same price. Yay for equal pricing!

Review: Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation

It’s no secret that I loved the original Satisfyer Pro 2. I raved about it on my blog, Twitter and the Lovehoney forum for months after I received it. It is still one of my all-time favourite toys and part of my regular rotation, but I think it might finally be time to demote it. Satisfyer contacted me recently and asked if I’d be interested in reviewing the Pro 2 Next Generation and obviously I could not refuse this offer. I was really pleased to see that this brand had taken reviewers feedback on board and gone back and improved their devices in order to create the best products possible. I have tons of respect for that, as that’s exactly what we as reviewers want to achieve in this industry. We want to encourage companies to do their best, so we can offer our readers the best in return. So, did Satisfyer ruin a good thing by upgrading the Pro 2 or did they manage to make a good toy even better? Keep reading to find out!

The packaging is pretty standard for the Satisfyer range, just a white cardboard box with a glossy product shot on the front and back and basic product information on the sides. Inside this, there’s some plastic casing that stores the device and charging cable. A user manual is tucked away underneath. As I’ve mentioned in my previous Satisfyer (and Partner) reviews, this company does not include storage bags so be sure to get something suitable on hand if purchasing one of their products.

Upon setting sights on the Pro 2 Next Generation for the first time, I noticed a couple of obvious aesthetic changes. The first, and most noticeable difference, was the colour. My original Pro 2 is a bright rose gold shade whereas this new version is more of a light bronze. The second thing I noted was the change in texture. The original has a glossy finish which makes it difficult to hold at times, especially if lubricant is in the picture, but the new version has a matte texture that removes this potential problem. The third change I picked up on was a subtle thing that’s been added; the Satisfyer logo embossed onto the front of the shaft. I like this as it looks like more of a finished product now.

It is still made from a combination of abs plastic and high-grade silicone. The body is all plastic but the head and buttons are premium silicone. The head feels a little softer and smoother than the previous models did, but I would still recommend using lubricant for comfort. As the head is made from silicone, the type of lubricant needed is water based as other types may cause damage to the material. It has the same visible seams as the original, which isn’t majorly attractive but once the toy is in use I honestly couldn’t care less what it looks like. It’s also still completely waterproof, making it a breeze to clean. I remove the head and clean with a 10% bleach solution but the rest of the toy is just rinsed with warm soapy water. It’s then left to dry naturally for as long as needed.

Magnetic charging systems usually frustrate me to no end, but Satisfyer have nailed a sturdy, secure system that doesn’t disconnect easily. I swear We-Vibe’s disconnect just by looking at them, so maybe they need to switch to these cables instead. The manual states that the initial charge could take up to eight hours but I found mine ready to go after half that time. It now takes only 150 minutes, which is not bad at all, and this gives ninety minutes of use. An improvement on the original which offers only a third of that.

There are now three buttons on the control panel. Hallelujah! I am beyond happy about this as the two button interface was one of my only criticisms regarding the original. Use is so much easier now and I love the fact I can go back an intensity if I should need to without having to cycle through all the settings again. There’s a round button which is the power hub, press once to turn on and hold for a few seconds to turn off. The longer oval button is the intensity changer and you just press the + and – buttons in accordance with your preferences.

As I’ve had some experience with these pressure wave stimulators now, I know exactly where I need to place the head in order to get the most accurate, direct and comfortable sensations. So, that’s what I did. I lay back, lubed up and turned the toy on. I felt an immediate difference between the low settings on this model and the low settings on the original. Both are very subtle, tickle-like sensations but the new version feels more refined and precise. I don’t know whether this is due to the new nozzle shape, which is longer and wider than the original or whether the motor has been tweaked slightly, but it feels noticeably better to me.

It feels more refined throughout the entire range of intensities actually and I’d say these sensations offer more depth to them than I could have received with the original. They penetrate below the surface with all their might and reach a whole bunch of sensitive nerve endings that can’t be hit with any other sort of sex toy. I haven’t used my original model much since this one arrived as I feel this one is more polished and finished, giving better results. I still love the Pro 2, but the Next Generation model feels a bit stronger and as a suction slut/power queen, that’s exactly what I’m looking for.

This type of stimulation can take some getting used to, so I’d recommend trying one of the entry models first to see whether it works for you or not, but this is the one to go for if you want the best of the current Satisfyer models and know pinpoint stimulation is right for you. It offers very direct clitoral contact and as it is designed to stay in place from start to finish, this is not a toy that will work for those who need broad stimulation or are very sensitive clitorally. I love precise contact, so this is a joy for me to use, especially on intensities seven and above. I can orgasm in less than three minutes 99% of the times I use this. I love a toy that is reliable and consistent, so I’m struggling to fault this at the moment.

Outside of the suction/vibration thing the Pro 2 Next Generation has going on, it also offers a cooling breeze to the clitoris. Have you ever tried an orgasm gel or balm that’s designed to increase sensitivity and heighten sensations? Well, it feels like that and makes my clitoris tingle a little. This is part of the reason I believe my orgasms are achieved easily with this toy as I become so heightened by the combination of everything that’s going on that my body just can’t hold the pleasure waves in any longer.

So, how do I rate this in comparison to the original? I would personally say that it is better and the improvements were all welcomed. It looks better aesthetically, is easier to hold/use due to the matte texture and new control panel and the new nozzle makes the stimulation feel more refined. It’s marketed as being quieter too and I’d have to agree with Satisfyer on that. It is quieter. It’s never going to be a silent toy as the mechanisms that go into the motor make some noise when in action, but some of the noise levels decrease upon skin to nozzle contact and a closed-door drowns out the rest. The only thing that I’d love to see from them now is the inclusion of a storage pouch with each device. I’m not sure they could do anything else to make me fall deeper in love with the Pro 2.

Review: Tokidoki x Lovehoney Jolly Roger Bullet

Back when I first heard about the Tokidoki x Lovehoney collection, I didn’t know much about the brand or what they sold. I decided to do some research and discovered that Tokidoki make a whole plethora of products based around their own adorable characters. Cute and colourful items are all over their website, so of course the sex toys were made to match. I love this because the products aren’t just limited to pink and purple tones. I don’t mind a hot pink vibrator on some occasions, but other times I want blue and red, and thanks to Tokidoki, I can now do that. I think I only own one other red toy out of the 200+ plus I own, so I was pretty excited to get my hands on this third-generation mini bullet.

Tokidoki x Lovehoney Jolly Roger Bullet VibratorThe packaging follows the same theme and style as that of the past two series. It has remained true to branding and is decorated entirely with their famous characters and other adorable things. The bullet protrudes through a cut-out window in the front of a cardboard sleeve, safely secured within some plastic casing. It can be a bit of a pain to get out, so keep some scissors on hand. I think this packaging is lovely and simple, but it’s nice enough that it could be given as a gift as is.

Once I had the bullet removed from the packaging I gave it a once over. I found no faults with the build design, but I did find a love for the design. It’s my favourite of the three bullets that I have from this range so far. The Jolly Roger is made from a robust, body-safe plastic and is very soft to the touch. It has a velvet-like finish because of the coating that has been used on the plastic. It is recommended to use a splashing of water-based lubricant with this toy although I didn’t feel like I had to use much as the material has basically no drag.

Tokidoki x Lovehoney Jolly Roger Bullet VibratorIt’s operated via a single triple A battery which is inserted by unscrewing the cap of the bullet and placing inside the compartment as directed. It’s essential for the cap to be screwed back into position firmly to ensure that the vibrator functions properly and remains completely waterproof. As it is water-friendly, it can be used in the bath or shower and cleaned easily after use. Just add a drop of toy cleaner or soap and rinse off.

As I have tried a couple of these bullet vibrators now I had a good idea of what to expect regarding the power and type of the vibrations. I wouldn’t class them as lacklustre or unimpressive, but there is only the one speed which limits play options. I usually associate single-speed vibrators with the cheap kind that you can buy for less than £5 that provide barely there buzzing, but these Tokidoki bullets are different. Instead of tickle-like, boring vibrations, these bullets offer a decently powered speed. I may be a power queen by default who relies on strength to get her rocks off, but these bullets can get me off if I leave them pressed against me for long enough.

You may now be wondering how something that’s powered by a single battery can please a girl who likes her power straight from the socket and to be honest, so am I. I don’t have any answers. It’s rare for me to orgasm with vibrators like this, but I can get there if I’m patient. It does take quite a while, but it’s not impossible to reach the end result. I can’t say that the orgasm is the most intense, satisfying kind that I’ve received either, but hey, an orgasm is still an orgasm. If I press the Jolly Roger against my clitoral hood then I could orgasm in about fifteen minutes and directly against the clitoris could take about ten minutes. This is long for me as I prefer fast-paced clitoral climaxes, so I wouldn’t use this bullet in the heat of a give-me-an-orgasm-now moment, but it’s ideal for prolonged play or multiple orgasms.

Tokidoki x Lovehoney Jolly Roger Bullet VibratorThe only thing that I’m not particularly fond of is the buzziness of the vibrations. I don’t feel that the Tokidoki bullets reach below the surface as a rumbly vibrator like the Tango would, but it’s not so high-pitched that it becomes numbing. I have a strong preference for rumbles or at least a motor that is somewhere between the two, but this is definitely on the buzzy side. It does not make me hypersensitive, tingly or numb though so I will happily use it every once in a while.

My partner (who happens to be more sensitive than me) does not mind buzzy vibrations. I think he actually prefers them, and for that reason, he gets on incredibly well with the Tokidoki bullets. I think he’d have the entire collection of them if I’d let him. He likes it when I place the Jolly Roger (with some pressure) against his glans during a hand job or against his nipples during a blowjob or some of kind of penetrative sex. He can also use them on himself during masturbation. He says that these bullet vibrators bring him to climax faster than some of our other bullets as the strength is perfect for him.

Tokidoki x Lovehoney Jolly Roger Bullet VibratorNoise wise, the Jolly Roger is quite fair down on the scale. It’s not completely silent, but I’ve never used a vibrator that is. I think this is one of the closest things to it though. It does sound louder up close due to the buzzing of the motor, hardly surprising, but it can’t be heard from outside of the closed bedroom door. I think this bullet would make a great choice for someone who relies on discretion because of their privacy preferences or living situation.

Overall, I’d be happy to recommend the Jolly Roger to anyone, regardless of anatomy. In our experiences, the power is decent enough to bring us to separate orgasms despite having polar opposite tastes in vibrations. It can be used in multiples ways, making it highly versatile, and it’s also hand-held which is great for easy storing and travelling. I can definitely see why more designs of these cute bullets have been added as they are such fun, effective models for those looking for something a bit different. They are non-intimidating, couple-friendly and perfect for anyone who’s a fan of the kawaii scene. Tokidoki x Lovehoney is not a range that will appeal to all age groups and tastes, but for the market it’s aimed at, I can see why it’s successful.

Review: Womanizer 2 Go

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.

Womanizer 2 Go

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.

Womanizer 2 GoThe 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.

Womanizer 2 Go

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.

Womanizer 2 Go

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.

I received the Womanizer 2 Go (€159/£139.59) from Orion in exchange for my honest review. Thank you! No affiliate links have been used within this post.
