There’s one thing that power-hungry hedonistic junkies such as us at subsmissives are on the search for, and that is the ultimate cordless wand. The doxy we have is a staple of our collection, but there are some times when a cord just gets in the way. We had the fortune to not only review but also give away an O-Wand recently, and now it’s the turn of the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand.
Wanna know about the packaging? It’s purple and black and box-shaped, but that’s not why you’re reading this review.
The Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand is a lump of silicone and hard ABS plastic in the familiar Lovehoney purple. I’m not a huge fan of this colourway, I prefer my toys black, but M is pretty pleased with purple, so who cares what I think about that. The storage solution is a leatherette pouch type toy bag not dissimilar in texture to a boot bag I had back in my school days. It has a wee hole in the bottom through which you can stick the charger.
3 hours. That’s how long you’re going to need to charge the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand before you can use it. I make that 1-0 to the mains powered wands right there. But y’know, good things come to those who wait, so if it’s good then 3 hours will be worth it, and well, it promises the same amount of play time.
The Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand is a fine piece of kit, that’s for sure. The smooth silicone head, heavy and flawless; the long hard body, smooth and simple; the neck and shoulders, tough and purposeful. It feels well made, solid, and reassuringly heavy. The buttons are half way up/down the body of the wand, and are pretty intuitive to use regardless of which way up you’re holding the wand. The buttons are more / mode / less; from head-end downwards.
Turning on is a simple press on the + sign, and much to our extreme joy, we were met with a grunty gnnnrrrrrr type vibration. Playing around a bit, it seems that whatever you do with the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand, it always comes on at the same place, and that is mid-way through the 5 power settings of constant rumble. This suits us perfectly, since as regular readers will know, M likes the constant settings. If you don’t though, then this wand offers a total of 20 patterns. 20 patterns, 5 powers, that’s a mahusive 100 settings. There’s bound to be something you like in there somewhere. There’s also one of them fancy travel locks for when you don’t want the wand to come roaring into life unexpectedly.
Cranking the power up to full and we are suitably impressed with what the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand has to offer. There is some proper decent power output from this wand; and without too much in the way of decibels. It’s not quiet, that’s for sure, but then we are talking POWER! and power is never quiet; it’s less noisy than the regular doxy, but more noisy than the doxy die-cast (review coming soon). I would describe it, in scientific terminology, as a noise commensurate with the results, we certainly have noisier toys that offer less in the way of orgasmic delight.
The weight of the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand is your ally here, meaning that you don’t have to press hard, since the wand does that for you. Straight out of the pouch following charge, M was able to orgasm with this through her clothing in just a couple of minutes. Stripping off the clothes, her orgasms came thick and fast, until she was left in a panting heap on the bed. Of course, since it’s rechargeable, it doesn’t have to be the bed, it can be pretty much anywhere you want.
The Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand is not quite on a par with our much-loved doxies, but it is bloody awesome, and the fact it doesn’t need a wire to operate really is an ace up its sleeve. It is a proper viable alternative to a mains wand for power junkies. The one downfall is that it’s not waterproof.
I just want to round off by talking about the cordless wand that our friends on the other side of the pond went all euphoric about in the latter half of last year. The Magic Wand Rechargeable (MWR). I have an inkling that the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand is actually a repackaged and rebranded MWR. Now, I don’t own a MWR, but I’ve researched it a fair bit, and if anyone who does own a MWR wants to compare notes, I am happy to. The design is bloody similar, even down to the flare at the base and the buttons are positioned in the same place, and in the same order. The charging cable, which is pretty unique, is identical, and y’know, it just seems the same. Where they are different though is that the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Wand has a significantly wider variety of settings. So maybe my speculation is just that. I’ve asked the good folk at Lovehoney, and here is their response:
It’s pretty awesome, and you can buy yours here
