I thought it would be fitting to photograph my old Hitachi Magic Wand against my old, retro orange countertopThe Hitachi Magic Wand was one of the first really powerful sex toys I reviewed. Except that it’s not REALLY a sex toy, it’s a back massager. That’s what Hitachi thought, until they caved and let Vibratex distribute it instead but with a rebranding of removing the “Hitachi” because they were so ashamed of its fame.  I loved the Magic Wand for awhile. It was cumbersome and clunky, but sometimes I really needed that power boost in order to orgasm.


Nearly 6 Years Later Update…

The more vibrators I try, the more I learn. I learned that although the Magic Wand is certainly powerful, it’s not the *right kind* of powerful for me. I’ve found that what I need is vibration that travels deep and vibration that is rumbly, instead of buzzy. The Magic Wand is pretty buzzy, but you don’t really notice that because of the sheer power. However when you compare it to the deep, rumbling penetrating vibrations of the Lelo Smart Wand Large (not the Medium), you’ll see what I mean. Even the attachments originally made for the Magic Wand, but various companies, perform better with the Smart Wand because the deep, rumbling vibrations travel better. I’ve also found that the head of the Magic Wand is incredibly difficult to clean, when compared to the smooth silicone of the Lelo Smart Wand or even the silicone of the Vibratex Mystic Wand – although the ridges on the side of the Mystic Wand do present a few issues now and then. Also, as much as I disliked the Fairy Wands, I found that the variable speed options on them made for a better arrangement than the Magic Wand’s two speeds.

5+ years later I find that I haven’t touched the Magic Wand in at least a few years (except to use as comparison during review research). It’s gathering dust, because better vibrators have come out – smaller, lighter, less noisy, rechargeable. I find that I actually don’t need the extreme intensity of the Magic Wand if I can instead have the right kind of vibrations. I found that right kind, and it’s perfectly at home in the diminutive We-Vibe Tango. These days I stick firmly to my little We-Vibe Tango, actually. It is used 90% of the time.  For someone who prefers the broad sensations of a “massager style” vibe, though, I’ll recommend the Mystic Wand first, and if you have the cash to plunk down, the Lelo Smart Wand Large. The Smart Wand has mixed reviews when it comes to longevity, though, so really make sure you use the hell out of it during its first year and don’t hesitate to contact Lelo if ANY hint of a problem arises.

Whew, what a mouthful of a title! So this review is for something that is pretty unique and can be viewed as the “Sybian Lite” in a way. It fits into the sex furniture category but also the Hitachi accessory category. As you’ve gathered from the title it’s a cushion meant to hold the Hitachi Magic Wand so that you can straddle it and grind away hands-free to orgasm.

The product was originally called “My Buddy”; maybe it’s my age but there’s one thing that pops into my head when I hear that name and it will always and forever be this annoying child’s talking doll from the 80’s. Or 90’s. whenever it was.


The Love Seat is a block of foam covered in a stretchy nylon-ish fabric. The foam is carved out a little up top and there’s an opening sliced open from top to bottom that you thread the cord through and then the handle of the massager through; the massager is then surrounded by foam. It’s really very simple to figure this thing out. You don’t need to remove the cover to insert the massager, you just shove a hand down the center with the plug of the cord in hand, and get that through to the bottom of the Love Seat. Keep pulling and then push the handle down inside. Continue reading »

I think that my G-spot has been trying to pick up the slack from my clit.

Meaning, despite having a clit o’steel, my G-spot is mightily responsive now that I know her exact address. She was an elusive bugger, akin to locating Platform 9 3/4. Thanks to my Pure Wand though we’re now very friendly neighbors.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned that my clit o’steel leads to another sad occurrence: clitoral orgasm from oral sex is nigh on impossible. “Close but no cigar” is the usual outcome. Thankfully my hubby has no issues with letting a vibrator finish me off.

Last night was no different in that regard but on the plus side he has become as well acquainted with my G-spot as Mr. Pure Wand has. The women whose orgasms aren’t falling like ripe apples will know what I mean when I say that he had me in such a frenzy that my body was quite literally climbing for release. My legs writhing, my pelvis rocking and humping his hand and mouth; my arms reaching for unseen extra partners and my hands grasping empty air or bunching up the bedsheets; my torso arching up off of the bed. I must have looked like a woman possessed and that’s just what I felt like.

Something else amazing was happening as I was pleading with my body to tip over that edge of clitoral orgasm (in one moment of delusional insanity I was picturing that awful yodeling Swiss plastic man from this one Price is Right game except this time I wanted him to topple off the mountain), my G-spot took the wheel and holy wow. I wanted to ask him how many fingers he was pumping inside of me but I couldn’t form words. Like the angel and the devil on your shoulders my mind and body alternately begged for clitoral orgasm and reveled in the G-spot orgasm. I finally brushed off the devil representing my clit and rode out the G-spot waves. To his credit he didn’t stop his fingers and hand until I closed my thighs and silently let him off duty.

Still unable to speak, he carefully climbed up and started fucking me. I say carefully because the fibromyalgia can even affect sex when my whole body is extra-tender to the touch – this even included my cunt. There had been an underlying achy pain as he was thrusting his fingers inside of me but the pleasure greatly outnumbered it. Hubby came after a few minutes, which is good because my G-spot couldn’t take any more pleasure. He had commented prior to the sex that I was a lot wetter than usual; I could tell as he was fucking me that it wasn’t my usual wetness – thinner and more slippery than silky.

Despite all that goodness my clit was still thumping for attention so I asked him to hand me the Hitachi. I spread myself open so that the head of the Hitachi had more direct contact with the pelvic bone buried under flesh just to the right of my clit – this placement allows the vibrations to spread to the legs of my clitoris, the portion that’s internal. When I turned it on, I knew then that I had indeed squirted/gushed earlier. There was so much fluid and wetness pooling in between my plump outter labia that the vibrations of the Hitachi sounded like a mini motorboat  churning in the water. It’s an obscene sound, no hiding how wet I am. He helped me along after a few frustrating moments of “almost there” and his fingers again felt fatter and larger than normal. I likely woke up the neighbors with that orgasm.

The details of downtime moments are lost to the haze of orgasm recovery but I can recall us laying there, panting, him asking me if I’m alright and I just laughed insanely. I recall asking him if he could tell when I gushed while his fingers were in me and he said:

“I have no idea, my hand was numb.”

I was silent for a few seconds and then apologized while laughing. And then thanked him while giggling.

Oh and I finally asked him how many fingers he had used. I fully expected him to say 4, with the way it felt. But no, it was only 3. Perhaps it felt like more because of the flare-up. I’m simultaneously looking forward to and doubting a future attempt at fisting. Can he? But oh it might feel awesome! My cunt says “it might hurt!” but my G-spot says “I don’t fuckin care, bitch!”.

Don’t know what yodeler I’m referring to? It’s ok, I know my brain doesn’t always make sense. Here, watch this short Price is Right clip and you’ll know.

There’s one big thing to be said for the “electric massager” style vibrators. Actually, two big things.

1. They don’t take batteries

2. They’re inconspicuous, because their original purpose is as a muscle massager


But which one should you try? I’ve reviewed a bunch, the most common ones. In these two reviews I’m going to do my best to compare them to each other to help you pick the best one and the right one for you.

In the plug-in style corner we’ve got the Hitachi Magic Wand; the Miracle Massager and the My Miracle Massager (both by CalExotics).
In the rechargeable corner is the Ideal (by Natural Contours); the Acuvibe and the Acuvibe mini.

Should you choose one style over the other? That depends on the environment you’d be using it in and your masturbation style. The plug-in style boasts all power, all the time, always on. However this means you are tethered by a cord and must be near an electrical outlet to use it. The rechargeable style means that you can take it anywhere you please, so long as it’s charged. The downside is that your usage hours will vary depending on how hard you press down on the head, and you could very well find yourself mid-wank with a waning vibrator (been there, done that). The rechargeable is also more expensive. They aren’t lacking on power though. I’d rate that the Acuvibe falls in between the Hitachi and the Miracle Massager. Whereas the MM can’t get me off, the Acuvibe will. My verdict is to start wherever you want but eventually own one of each style.


Plug-in style massagers

The Hitachi Magic Wand is the more well-known and more established in this category. It’s a powerhouse and generally long-lasting. Built like a tank and as powerful as one, too. Like most massagers it has two speeds, both are pretty darn powerful. I’ve known women whose clits are sensitive enough that they can’t tolerate the Hitchi. If you’ve had a number of fairly decent vibrators that you feel are just not strong enough for you, then I’d recommend the Hitachi. The Miracle Massagers, both of them, are not as powerful as Hitachi. However, they’re more cheaply made (they are CalExotic) and I couldn’t see either outlasting the Hitachi.


The difference between the Miracle Massager and the My Miracle Massager seems to be … not much! MMM is pink and white, and the head has a few “ribs” on it. The MM is black and red with a completely smooth head. I don’t think there’s any other design difference or power differences.


  Hitachi Magic Wand
Miracle Massager My Miracle Massager
Price at EdenFantasys
$45.99 $35.99 $41.99
Power Strong! 5000-rpm for low, 6000-rpm for high. The power combined with deep penetrative vibrations means that it can do a very good job at transmitting vibrations through other materials like rope, silicone dildos, etc. High is a bit less power than Low on Hitachi. It doesn’t achieve the same deep throbbing feel-it-to-your-core vibrations as the Hitachi. same as MM
Noise Level Can be noisy. Both low pitch and high pitch sounds to it. Not very discreet through thin walls Quieter than the Hitachi because it’s not as powerful. No high pitch whine like the Hitachi. Probably the same as the MM
Head design Textured “leatherette”. Little bit hard to clean (can use condom over head to negate this). Mostly stationary Head. Can be removed. Head will heat up with extended (past 15 minutes) use but not to the point that it will burn you. I don’t find the heat to be a deterrent. 2.5″ diameter head. Smooth PVC. Easy to clean. Spring mounted head. Head does not heat up. Head size is a bit narrower than the Hitachi, base of head even more narrow. 2 1/8″ diameter head (at widest?) Smooth PVC with 4 ridges/ribs. Relatively easy to clean, take care with cleaning ribs. Spring mounted head. Head does not heat up. Less bulbous head design, slightly narrower than MM at 2″ diameter.
Body design Straight body. Weighs about 1.25 lbs. Entire massager is about 12″ long. Smaller, rocker-style switch is in about the middle of the handle. Curved body. Weighs about 1.1 lbs. Entire massager is about 12″ long. Sliding-style switch is lower on the handle, towards the curved end (which is actually a pain in the ass spot) Curved body. Weighs about 1 lb. Entire massager is about 13″ long. Sliding-style switch is lower on the handle, towards the curved end.
Available Attachments 1 head replacement, 1 head cover, at least 4 internal stimulation, 2 dual stimulation 1 made specifically for it which is dual stimulation, some Hitachi attachments can be used on it with varying success. Likely usable on the MMM. 1 made specifically for it which is dual stimulation, some Hitachi attachments can be used on it with varying success. Likely usable on the MM.

None of these massagers are made of a material that is safe for sharing because they cannot be sterilized. If you’re in a sharing situation, be sure to stretch a condom over the massager head. I clean these with Afterglow Toy Wipes. No risk of getting sensitive electrical parts wet, and they’re tough enough to really scrub the original head of the Hitachi.

My pick? The Hitachi. Not just because the Miracle Massager can’t usually get me off – Hitachi has more attachment options, and the attachments can muffle the powerful vibrations sometimes. If discretion in appearance is a must then definitely pick Hitachi. While the MM and MMM don’t immediately scream “I’m a sex toy”, the “California Exotic Novelties” label does. Perhaps your parents / roommate isn’t familiar with the brand, but the “Exotic” part is a giveaway to me (you could conceal this with electrical tape, however). I also feel the Hitachi is more sturdy and longer-lasting. If any of the following applies to you then I would recommend the Miracle Massager:  you think you’re sensitive enough that any use of the Hitachi would be overkill; you want this as a clitoral vibe and don’t give a shit about attachments for internal or dual stimulation.

I’ll be talking about all the attachment options at length in a separate review next week.

Part 2 is up – the rechargeable massagers!


This is the same video that is in Part 2 but I wanted it on both posts in case someone comes here from a link or search and only looks at this post.


Jan 252009

There is a downside to dating this girl. Oh yes, it’s not all perfection and light filled with endless hot sex! My partner gets teased a lot, sexually speaking of course. He reads this blog, and he takes half of the pictures. During the few weeks he was sick with a pretty bad chest cold, sex or just about anything that would raise his heart-rate too high was out of the question. Those photos for the oral fixation posts? Killed him. My devouring of the large bag of lollipops? He begged for mercy. Needless to say, he was um well….I’m sure you know.

The other night he finally declared he was well enough and I felt obligated to pull out all the stops.

I pulled him into a joint shower with me – what better way to get things heated up right quick than 2 wet soapy bodies in the very close quarters of an old-school tub/shower? I will admit to running my very sudsy shower poof over my breasts a little more than necessary.

(I like breasts as much as any heterosexual man, but I don’t get what it is about sudsy tits that makes men into drooling hornballs.)

In the bedroom I intended to work him up to an amazing orgasm. I put the leather mattress corners on the bed,  my leather wrist cuffs on him, and clipped him to the bed. If I’m going to be the best cocktease I can be,  his hands can’t have the opportunity to help things along. As the flat of my tongue ran firmly up the length of his cock, he gasped. When I stopped and held my tongue there at the edge just about to go over the top, with open lips poised to engulf him, he moaned. Seconds ticked by and still I did not move my mouth; unthinking he went to move his hands to my head but quickly remembered the restraints.

Rest assured I soon gave him what he wanted. I added in the Hitachi for a few minutes before I moved it under me. As I laid on my stomach sucking his cock, my pussy was grinding against the head of the Hitachi. He could hear the sound of the vibrator, he could see my ass moving as I fucked the vibrator and he could feel my moans around his cock as the vibrator drove me crazy. Which in turn drove him crazy. Soon, I found that the mattress corner restraints were failing as I felt his hand on my head. I gave in and removed the restraints. An enthusiastic blowjob became something more as his hands in my hair and at the back of my head took on a life of their own, controlling the speed of my mouth suctioning his cock and the depth to which I sucked it into my mouth.

Soon, I climbed on top and sank down onto his cock, an act made easy by my soaking wet cunt. I brought the Hitachi to rest snugly against my clit and the base of his cock and I slowly rocked my hips back and forth, in circles, up an down. Within a minute I shuddered screamed and collapsed in a huge orgasm. The second I clicked off the Hitachi and threw it to the floor, he grabbed me by the waist, pulled me close to his chest and started to roll us with his cock still inside of me. It’s a move he does often, not wanting to break contact while we change positions so that he can fuck me hard.

I need to interject here and explain something. We have a unique bed situation. We couldn’t afford a king or queen sized bed, so we put to use the 2 matching twin bedframe sets he inherited. We used our own twin mattresses, and have the beds pushed together side by side. It’s actually worked out well, no chance of hogging the covers! He is accustomed to using something called a feather bed topper on his mattress, it’s underneath the fitted sheet. Every so often he has to re-center it, for some reason it likes to slide around a bit under there.

Back to our story.

And there is a point to this story. Sometimes readers assume that sexbloggers, with their trunks of toys, have sex lives that are better than most everyone else. Sure, my toys have led to better masturbation, have helped me further explore my sexuality, and have indeed made the sex I have better. But it’s not a porno. We’re not perfect sex goddesses.

He rolled us from my bed to his to continue fucking me. Pretty much as soon as my back is on his bed, I feel the discarded restraints under my back. His powerful roll combined with a slippery comforter and the featherbed topper hanging off the bed a bit resulted in…..the both of us sliding right off the bed to the floor. This wasn’t just a simple slide-off-the-bed, haha, lets-continue-fucking. Oh no.

You see, the dresser on his side is a mere 2 feet away from his bed. As we landed quite awkwardly, still me on bottom him on top, my kneecap (my bad knee) had a nice hard greeting with the dresser. I was bent funny. He says “Are you ok?” amidst the sound of glass bottles of cologne tumbling over on the dresser. Loudly.

“Owwwww no……getoffme!”

We unwedged ourselves from the spot and got back into bed to nurse our wounds. It wasn’t anybody’s fault, but I felt bad he didn’t get relief for his um discomfort. He felt bad for me crashing and hurting my knee. After a few minutes of laying there, I started to giggle. I couldn’t help it. It was pretty comical. I usually wonder if our neighbors can hear us fucking; boy that night I really wondered if they heard the fall and what they thought.

A day in the life of real sex.

So this is going to be the first time ever with this sort of review…..because not too long after I was sent the Nexus G-pod, Nexus discontinued it. We’ve had no word if the company plans to replace it with something “new and improved”. Sadly, this means that there are even fewer attachments for the Hitachi out there that are silicone. But, being the good lil reviewer I am, I’m trying to find out what your other options are.  We’ll get to those in a minute though. First…….

The fairytale of……. The Geeky Princess and her Magic Wand.


There once was a Princess, geeky and fair.

Suitors across the land gave her their wares

Her opinions they sought

Be it positive or not:

“Princess, was it orgasm or despair?”


{Nexus G-Pod vs Miracle Massager Attachment}

The Princess compared betwixt her two toys

She tried out the new one as instruction implied

But she cried out “Ouch! I do not enjoy!”

And so she thought for something different to try



The local wizard applied ribbons and magic

The Princess, determined, tried all sorts of things

But her final spell ended up quite tragic



She thought she could make her friendly pussy purr

By a tap or a flourish of her trusty Magic Wand

But her efforts backfired, a horror did occur!

Her pussy turned to lion and ran away with a roar.


Tada! (I apologize for the poor rhyming)

Anyways.  The nubs, in theory, are good but the whole thing was just too firm. Once it vibrated at Hitachi Warp Speed, holy ow. And y’all know I kinda have a clit o’ steel. Vibrating nubs become kinda itchy. Not fun.

We’ve got some options. There’s a few here that are affordable but not silicone, not do they stimulate more than one area at once. Here is one that is the same design, but “soft jelly” – likely not Phthalates-free, and not for sharing but “soft jelly” might mean that the nubs are no longer owie and itchy. Here is a nice non-nubby alternative dual-stimulator. It’s not specifically for THE Hitachi, but should fit nonetheless.

Since this thing IS silicone and boilable, therefore can be shared, perhaps I’ll try it out on someone else someday and see if they like it – I’ve read other positive reviews, others have liked it.
