As toys are getting more intelligent and elegant in design no longer does a conventionally shaped sex-toy seem unique, titillating or a good investment. While the unpredictable follows with the unknown exploration of the newest toys in the industry, the pleasure can be unprecedented. The future of vibrating sex-toys is undoubtedly rechargeable, water-proof and app-controlled. We-Vibe is one such company at the forefront of innovative sex-toy technology and one of their newest products: the Rave absolutely delivers.
With a simple design that packs a fantastic rumbling punch of vibration, the Rave is great as an insertable toy. What can be really frustrating about some older toy designs is that they do not work with the anatomy of the body to achieve the goal set, especially with toys marketed as G-spot (female bodies) or prostate (male bodies) centered. Neither the g-spot nor the prostate are located straight from the entry point but rather both require a curved, bulbous head to really stimulate the respective areas. The
Rave is a toy which does have a dramatic curve built into the toy design itself so that operators do not have to stretch the opening in hopes of hitting the right spot which can be very uncomfortable and exhausting. While the Rave is marketed as a G-spot vibrator, as mentioned above, the prostate can be stimulated with the same shaped toy (just be careful to keep a firm grip on the toy for anal play). Yet really what consumers want to know about this toy is: how’s the vibration? Is it powerful? Absolutely it is powerful and has 10 different settings including a huge range of different pulsating settings that are pretty amazing. Personally, I love pulsating because it essentially takes the work out of masturbating because I don’t find you really need to move the toy much. The Rave is powerful and made from medical grade silicone making the vibrations seem a little duller then other plastic or hard rubber toys. Though I am a silicone girl at heart because I love how easy the material is to clean, its durability and its soft texture which is not abrasive on the skin.
I particularly loved the water-proof function on this toy as it is incredibly quiet so the sound of the toy doesn’t echo off of the bathroom walls and bath
time is even more fun now. The rechargeable port located just above the + on the toy closes over when it is not plugged in. I really appreciated that We-Vibe changed their charging design from past toys as I found the magnetic charging was irritatingly easy to knock off of the toy themselves. The toy also charges fairly quickly, a few hours for a full charge and holds its charge for a very long time, depending how often you use it and how high the power level is set.
What is truly unique about this toy is that it can be app-controlled. It is included with the
product and the app itself is for iOS and android (free to download). I found the instructions a little confusing but figured out that for this toy, you sync with the app by holding the middle button with the toy turned off and with two buzzes from the toy, you know that you’re connected. From the app you can control the intensity, the setting or pattern used and the timing. You can even create your own vibration settings and name them too. You can also have the toy synced to two separate phones so your partner can control it with their own phone too. Now while the app application is pretty cool and made my geek happy, it isn’t necessarily needed nor do I use it often at all. Firstly, you have to sync the toy every time you want to use your app which is not overly convenient. This toy is also a handheld toy which means that you have to have one hand occupied with the toy and the other trying to play with the settings and hopefully your finger coordination is on point. I might have dropped the phone once or twice trying to check out the different settings. With toys like the We-Vibe 4 plus, the app makes sense because it is a hands-free toy (and is great as a vibrating panty!). While the app doesn’t take anything away from the Rave, it just isn’t overly necessary for regular use. Though it is nice to not have to fumble with the buttons on the toy itself while already playing, the app is not a wow factor in my opinion.
Another feature which sets this toy apart is its asymmetrical design. I found this was great for internal stimulation because the body just kind of took hold of the toy and made it go into the right spot. While this toy can be used for external purposes on the clit (or wherever else you wanna try) and I did quite enjoy it, the asymmetrical design made it hard to keep the toy on the exact right spot without having it kind of slip off the sweet spot. This was frustrating at times but I wouldn’t say this problem makes the toy bad because it is marketed as an internal toy; it is just a bonus if it works on other places too.
Overall, I really enjoy the new edition to the We-Vibe family and I am excited to see what other toys they have in the planning. Even the other solo toy the Nova which was also newly released has gotten some very positive reviews and I just might have to try that one too! The Rave is a reasonable $149.00 + taxes in store, which considering all of the functions like being rechargeable, the app features and the 1 year warranty, the toy is a good investment and worth the extra doe. I would absolutely recommend the Rave for those looking for a classy, powerful internal vibe with a beautiful design.

My Newest Bedroom And Travel Essential
Every woman has GOT to have her go-to mini vibe, whether it be the ones shaped as lipsticks that you can keep in your purse, or the classic mini-egg vibes that you keep in the nearest drawer to your bed. The one downfall is this: How many of these have you owned so far? I bet many. Although practical and versatile, most of them don’t last very long. The Tango by We-Vibe™ is a game changer. Available in pink or blue for $99.00 from Wicked Wanda’s, you get a one-year warrantee included; this li’l dude is definitely worth the investment. Not only is it THE most powerful mini vibe I’ve encountered so far, it’s also quiet, rechargeable AND waterproof.
With summer here, i’ve been traveling a lot, especially by plane to visit some family. This lil buddy has been so discreet and loyal to my needs, which I admit, are usually put on the side burner during travel time. I often travel by plane with only a carry on and i’ll admit, I leave my dildos at home out of fear of having my personal items inspected publicly at the airport security checkpoint. The Tango was brought through 3 different airports without any questioning! It’s also extremely quiet for the amount of power it offers, which is great if you’re living with roommates or simply wanting discretion.
The tapered tip is awesome because it allows you to vary from general massage to very pinpointed vibrations.
By comparing it to the classic vibrating eggs, there are just so many features that makes the WeVibe Tango a gazillion times better. For one, there are a variety of vibration strengths and patterns for different moods and preferences. The button at the base is easy to push and allows you to find the perfect setting and intensity. It also frees you of the wired controller that came with the classic egg vibe. YAY! Oh, and did I mention it’s 100% waterproof?
Proof that nothing is perfect. This lil champion has a downside. It’s not horrible, but it can be pretty embarrassing under certain circumstances. Being waterproof, my first Tango experience in the shower was interrupted when I dropped it onto my bath’s porcelain bottom. Not only did it go from extremely quiet to VERY LOUD, it took off on me and bounced around everywhere, which to most would probably look pretty hilarious, almost cartoon-like. However, if you have people in the next room, this would definitely require some explanation upon exiting the bathroom. My suggestion? Avoid having soapy hands and perhaps opt for a bath instead of a stand-up shower.
The other downside would be the very wobbly magnetic adapter that attaches to the toy itself and connects it to the USB cable. The magnet itself could be stronger, therefore it can easily disconnect. Try charging it on a high shelf.
“The most powerful mini-vibe” ?
Hands down. YES. Yes yes and ooooh… yes.. Seriously. Trust me on this one. You will not be disappointed.
You can also buy the Tango with the most powerful couples toy the WeVibe 4 Plus! The Passionate Play Kit is a fantastic value! $219.00 + taxes In Store only!
