Review: The Shibari Wand Helped me Find the Secret to the Universe . . . in my Pants

Shibari My Wand reviewI recently acquired the Rechargeable Shibari My Wand Wireless 10x. On the surface it appears similar to a Hitachi Magic Wand with a few updated features. You may remember me giving my review of the Hitachi in my Hitachi vs Wahl Massager video. Turns out I’m not a Hitachi girl. Although I like intense jack-hammer like vibration, the Original Magic Wand’s deep, penetrating power messages me in all the wrong places and in all the wrong ways. Every time I use my Hitachi my entire vulva becomes numb before I have a chance to get off. While it’s power is incredible, it just doesn’t give me the precision I need.

Needless to say, I was a little skeptical of the Shibari My Wand. Not saying wand style toys aren’t amazing– they are for many people. My body simply has a hard time adapting to them.

Turns out I really dig the Shibari My Wand. Like, A LOT. It is not just a knock-off Hitachi. Its features and unique feel differentiate it from the competition. After sampling it many, many, many times in various positions and situations (all for SCIENCE!) I discovered it’s really good for 2 things: Hands free orgasms and for use during bondage. Let’s get into the basics first and then I’ll move on to my experiences.

Product Details

The Shibari My Wand Wireless 10x is rechargeable by USB or wall outlet. Three hours of charge time will get you about 2.5 hours of use. Like many massager style wands, it isn’t waterproof nor should be be used for more than about 25 minutes at a time to avoid the possibility of overheating.

The control interface consists of two simple buttons, one for on/off and the other to cycle through the 10 speeds. The use of the word “speeds” is a bit misleading as I assumed it meant the wand had a lowest speed, eight medium-ish speeds, and a highest speed. The actual setup is: low constant pulsation, high constant pulsation and eight other varying pulsing rhythms. Still great features but not what I would call “speeds.”

It is designed for external use only, meaning it can be used to stimulate the vulva, penis and testicles, perineum, or anal area. You can even use it on the nipples or most large muscle groups to relieve general muscle strain. For penetration, insertable wand add-ons can be used.

The Shibari Wand also has a travel peg that should be inserted in the wand when it is not in use. The peg locks the toy so it can’t be accidentally turned on in a drawer or travel bag.

The Power

Is it as powerful as the Hitachi? No. Is that a bad thing? Not at all. Don’t get me wrong, the Shibari Wand is pretty damn powerful but not being a plug-in toy, it’s never going to quite have the punch the Hitachi does.

Rechargeable Shibari My Wand 10xThe Shibari Wand has a completely different feel than the Hitachi and this is precisely why I like it so much. When comparing them side by side (you should have seen me laying my bed switching back and forth comparing and contrasting!) the head of the Shibari Wand is softer which feels a bit more pleasant against my precious lady parts. It also has a completely different kind of vibration.

The reason the Hitachi doesn’t agree with me is its vibrations penetrate incredibly deeply. This is great for a deep tissue massage but not on my genitals. After a few minutes with the Hitachi, everything in my genital area feels like it’s vibrating to the point of numbness– my entire vulva, my pelvic bones, butt cheeks, tail bone, etc.– it’s just TOO MUCH. The shallower vibrations of the Shibari Wand affect my clitoral area and vulva and stop there. That’s exactly where I like it and how I like it.

I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed the Shibari Wand’s pulsing patterns. Usually on-off-on-off pulses annoy me. I rarely use them. The Shibari Wand has some interesting patterns that feel completely random. These are great for a slow build orgasm. I usually find the longer I take to build up to climax, the stronger that climax is. So when I have the time, I use the pulses and when I’m in a rush, the steady vibration gets the job done quickly.

Best Ways to Use the Shibari Wand

I quickly discovered this was an awesome hands free toy. Laying down with legs closed (think “mermaid legs”), it wedges nicely in between and doesn’t slip. This leaves my hands free for porn, nipple pinching, or giving the person hovering over my face some good oral. I love using it this way!

BDSM is something I enjoy indulging in. Laying there one afternoon with the Shibari Wand nestled between my tightly closed legs, it hit me. This toy is a riggers dream! Whether legs are bound with rope, bondage tape, or cling wrap, this toy can be easy wrapped into the set-up.

This is something kinksters often do with a Hitachi but I’ve found, for me, the Hitachi is too much for a forced orgasm scenario. It’s too much, too fast and makes me miserable (and not “miserable” in a fun, kinky way). The patterns of the Shibari Wand are a perfect tease for this type of situation. And not having to deal with a chord makes the whole set-up so much easier.

My Final Word

I love this toy. It gets way more use than my Hitachi ever did. I love the feeling of hands-free orgasms and there isn’t much on the market that is as powerful and stays put as well as the Shibari My Wand. Being I enjoy devious, orgasmic bondage, this one fits the bill too. It’s great for stimulating vulvas or penises.

Best yet, the Shibari Wand is relatively inexpensive. Although I’ve found it online in the $60 range, it can easily be found on sale for under $40.

As I said before, the vibrations of the Rechargeable Shibari Wand really make this sex toy work for me. I’m not sure of the exact specs or the science behind the mechanisms, but the Shibari Wand feels as if it’s vibrating at a different frequency than the Hitachi. Whatever frequency it is, it’s one my body likes better! And if you want to get all metaphysical and mind blowy, watch this and remember:

“ If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ~Nikola Tesla.

Thanks to the Shibari Wand I think I found secret to the universe in my pants ;)

    I LOLed at the headline. I like the Shibari Wand…but I’m all about the power, so Hitachi is the one for me. I guess you can chalk it up to my size queen ways. I like REALLY big (real) d*cks too.

    lol
