I purchased my We-Vibe Tango from my favourite adult retailer Lovehoney a few months ago, it is one of my all-time favourite toys and resides next to my bed for easy access. This was the first luxury toy that I purchased, following some persuasion from Tango enthusiasts and the access to a 10% discount. I did question why I was spending £60+ on a tiny vibrator, but after doing my research into sex toys, brands and materials, I decided luxury or at least rechargeable toys would be good investments long-term.
I have been in love with the We-Vibe Tango since day one and I have re-written this review countless times trying to convey why this toy is so brilliant. I really wanted to do this toy justice by knowing everything I could about it. If I had to sum it up in one word, I’d choose fantastic.
I love neat, clean packaging and that’s exactly what We-Vibe provide. I was really impressed from the outset as the packaging tells you that you’re receiving something of quality. The Tango arrives in a pink and white classy box with a picture of the toy on the front and all the key features on the back. As you can see below, I ordered the pink version, but there’s also a delightful blue version available from other retailers.
Inside the box, I discovered the Tango resting within some foam and underneath this foam layer of protection, lay the USB charging cable, magnetic charging cap, a full set of instructions, a card explaining the registration process and a lovely satin storage bag to keep everything in. Registering a We-Vibe product is extremely straight forward. You simply press here, fill out the required information including serial number and date of purchase then you’re all set. It couldn’t be simpler!
Insert the small end of the charger into the magnetic charging cap and the USB into your chosen charging point, before joining the base of the Tango directly onto the magnets of the charging cap. A full charge takes around 90 minutes, which gives roughly 2 hours of play time if used on lower settings. If used on full speed, then it lasts for just over an hour. The charging cap lights up whilst the toy is charging and will turn off once the toy is fully charged or if it’s been disconnected, so make sure to check on it every once in a while to determine which of the two it is. It’s important to also keep the Tango on a flat surface as it separates from the cap easily otherwise. The light on the base of the Tango will also flash once your Tango is running low on charge, so there’s no disappointment of it dying halfway through a play session.
The Tango is controlled by a single button on the base, making it extremely straight forward to operate. Tap once to begin the vibrations, tap again to cycle through and press and hold to turn off. This toy has a memory function too, so your last-used setting will be the one that starts whenever you turn on the toy. I love this feature on toys as I tend to stick to the same couple of functions.
The Tango has eight functions, 4 constant speeds and 4 patterns. I don’t care much for patterns usually, but two out of the four are interesting to me. I’ve only liked the patterns on one other toy before, and that would be those of the Happy Rabbit 2.
I was surprised by the first speed, I thought that I had turned it up accidentally, but I hadn’t. I find it to be fairly rumbly with some pretty good strength behind it. I usually neglect the first speed on toys as they tend to feel more of a tickle than a vibration, but the Tango is strong enough for me to use to prolong an orgasm or provide a gentle warm-up to higher settings. This is the perfect setting to use during sex with my partner, as it provides that extra bit of stimulation to my clitoris without being a complete game changer and bringing me to an orgasm before my partner has finished. The medium setting feels like the highest setting on some of my other vibrators, so you can only imagine the high and ultra-high settings. Pretty intense, but that’s the way I like it.
The patterns that I like are named ‘Pulse’ and ‘Cha-Cha’. I find the Pulse to be super rumbly. I dislike the patterns ‘Wave’ and ‘Tease’ as these are stop and start vibrations that I avoid at all costs, no matter how strong those quick pulsations are. They take me further away from orgasm rather than closer to it, so I choose to ignore them. If you like these types of vibrations, then you might get along with them, but they’re not my cup of tea.
During couples play, I find that this toy is petite enough to hold between us during sex, it doesn’t get in the way like a wand does and my partner is not intimidated by it at all. He wasn’t overly excited until I turned it on, but he soon stopped talking and began moaning when I held it against his balls. Combine the third constant speed with a blowjob and it’s a sure-fire way to bring him to orgasm within minutes. I worry that he might take this back to Uni with him and use it for himself!
For solo use, this toy provides excellent pin point stimulation due to the angled tip. I’m yet to find another that can circulate my clitoral hood and stimulate it in the way this toy does. I love to use the higher speed settings directly against my clitoris, as this is just guarantees a speedy orgasm.
I find the constant speeds to be fairly quiet considering the power, it’s nothing that some background music couldn’t disguise. It only really makes obvious noise if it’s left on whilst on a flat surface. I still live at home and have no issues using this discreetly. I don’t use the patterns with others home though as I find they are a little louder.
I was told this was the most powerful bullet vibrator out there, so I expected a whole new level of power, and that’s exactly what I got. It has everything that I could ask for, minus a travel lock. It’s fully waterproof with four intense speeds, a couple of notable patterns, amazing pin point precision and fairly quiet. It’s an unbeatable bullet so far and I think it would take something extraordinary to knock this off my top spot.
