Sometimes products exceed my expectations. This was definitely the case with the Twilite Wand massager I received from Nasstoys. It wasn’t something I sought out. A rep from the company offered to let me host a giveaway for one, and as a thank you they sent me my own Twilite Wand to keep.
At first glance it looked to me like just another novelty-grade vibrator. I’m not a fan of the Pepto Bismol pink hard plastic (they also come in black, for the record), but as I’ve mentioned before I don’t pay a lot of attention to what my sex toys look like while I’m using them, so that’s a petty gripe. I also thought it was an odd shape, and it takes those C batteries, which I rarely have on hand because most stuff takes either AA or AAA batteries. But it’s waterproof, and not many wand massagers are.
I’m not one to let a new sex toy go unused for long. Curiosity always wins, and I want to know what it feels like–just in case it’s better than anything else I’ve ever used, because every once in a while that does happen. Granted, I didn’t have very high expectations to begin with, but I was pleasantly surprised with the Twilite Wand, even though it only has 3 settings: 2 speeds of constant vibration that are powerful and of a deep, rumbly quality, and a pulse pattern that I can take or leave.
For a while this vibe lived in my bathroom cabinet because I often used it in the shower. But then it got moved during a massive cleaning-and-throwing-out-session. I knew that I wanted to keep it, and since it’s made from hard plastic, it would be nearly impossible to tear up for a What’s Inside Wednesday post, so I stashed it in my sex toy drawer. There it managed to migrate to the very back of the drawer, out of sight and mind for many months, forgotten.
A couple of weeks ago, I was rummaging through the drawer looking for something else entirely, and my Twilite Wand rolled into view, so I ended up using that instead. A change is as good as a rest, you know, and I needed something for a Follow-Up Friday post this month. So, without further preamble, here are my thoughts on Nasstoy’s Twilite Wand Massager.
- While the Twilite Wand is not the most discreetly sized vibe, it’s smaller and more convenient than the Hitachi Magic Wand, and the Hustler Mini Mistress. Especially since there’s no cord and it’s waterproof.
- There aren’t any attachments available for this wand, and with its wide rounded head, I’m not sure the design will even allow for them. That’s a downside for those who need internal stimulation.
- The Twilite Wand’s motor does make some noise, but it’s nothing compared to the loud Hitachi racket.
- The single button control is squishy and a bit clicky, but it’s super easy to find and press.
- The shape and design doesn’t scream “I AM A SEX TOY!” or anything, but I think nowadays most folks know what a “massager” is and what many women do with them.
- I still don’t understand why it has to be spelled this way. Neither does my spell check.
- While the vibrations aren’t as strong as the Hitachi on high, they’re more rumbly and I think certainly enough to do the job for most people.
So, the bottom line is that I’m glad I have this vibe in my arsenal. I’m not sure I’d go out of my way to acquire another Twilite Wand when/if this one breaks, but for what it is, it does the job well and is very affordable.
