[Oh hey! I have reviewed the updated (Hitachi) Magic Wand Original
and it's a much better review. Read that instead, yeah?]

The Hitachi Magic WandHello, hello, the reigning champ of vibes! Pleased to meet you. I thought I never would, as I was always put off by your grandma-esque appearance. But, presented with the offer to review you via Babeland, I could not resist. I had to know. What makes you so great? Why do the bloggers shorten your name to the majestic Hitachi? Am I going to shudder and squirt when I orgasm?

You came in a laughable box plastered with photos of dorky people using you on innocent spans of skin: backs, arms, shoulders, legs. But I knew the truth. Babeland’s cute plus and minus logo was taped on the box. I opened the box and flipped through the instruction manual.

Hitachi positions of massaging

I think you’re missing one spot.

I plugged you in and turned you on “low.” Hey, I actually expected you to be louder. I guess all the hype worked in your favor this time. You sounded somewhat like an appliance; a higher-pitched vibration than most battery-operated vibes. I pressed your large head against my vulva through my pajama pants. Even then, the vibration was nearly too much. But I would persevere.

Ladies on the Hitachi box having great fun.

Whenever I was horny, I plugged you in and tried to enjoy you, but it was always too much. Your whirring head made my vulva itch. I tried putting three layers of towel between us; it worked at first, but after not much longer, the itch was back. Four layers of towel was too many, and just felt like a general vibration of towel. Not so fun.

The only time I have been able to handle your intensity has been when I’m about to come anyway. I toss my Xtreme Pack G-spot bullet away and pull you over to me. My orgasms with you have not sent me into orbit yet, but I will be patient. I know eventually I will sing your praises just as everyone else has. I just need time.

Buy the Hitachi Magic Wand at Babeland!

    Great review. I love how you include photos. It really spruces it up. :) & I agree about them totally missing a spot!!

    I’ve always been curious about our friend the Hitachi… You know..whenever I see that name I expect to hear some sort of sound like a gong or some sort of ding in the background…teehee. Anyway, I too think it would be too much for me, but I’m sure some day the hitachi will join the rest of my toys in ye-‘ole-toybox.. :)

    To me, the Hitachi looks good for back massages, but not like something I’d want to use as a sex toy. Too big, too strong, needs to stay plugged in… not my thing.

    This thing frightens me with its hugeness. The idea of actually putting that anywhere near my clit terrifies me; it looks like it could grind the damn thing off! AUGH. At best, I think it would make me go completely numb. But then I know a bunch of people who swear by it. So I don’t know what to think.

    At any rate, I’m glad to hear there’s at least one person out there who’s not wild about it.

    The Hitachi is too much for me, too — save for using it to apply vibrations to the base of a silicone dildo. Then it’s a godsend! Try it with your Jollet, if you haven’t already. I love it with my Jollie!

    I love my fairy mini mini, I don’t think I’ll ever try the Hitachi…there’s just no need.

  • Crystalline

    Ahhh, yes, the itch. Complete turn-off! And “grandma-esque appearance,” right on, LOL!

    Nice review. The Hitachi is definitely not for everyone, I don’t think you have to feel bad if its Magic doesn’t seem to be working on you (although it’s worth persevering a little with new things, I agree). I personally feel like I’ve had an epidural after about 30 seconds with it: numb from the waist down!

    Love love love this thing! Having someone else hold it on you while you grip the sides of the bed… I literally screamed and yelled. You can’t control your own body, I pretty much go into full body spasms! Definitely couldn’t handle using it on myself, but it is A LOT of fun with someone else!!

    My very very very favorite vibrator of all time…I own 3!

  • Destiny Cat

    hmmm, this makes me wonder if i would even be able to handle it.

  • My new best friend

    I think the point of this – and why it’s so amazing – is it gives many women who weren’t able to orgasm easily or even AT ALL the ability to orgasm at will. I know there are women who use it who aren’t that way, but I suspect that you hear such praises from women like me. Think about it: As a teen you experience something in the tub that feels good but is so minimal you don’t realize it’s an orgasm…you just feel sensitive and not horny suddenly. As an adult you try a dozen toys then stop wasting your money on stuff that doesn’t work. You orgasm maybe once every two months when you have a ton of time and patience for frustration on your hands. Your weak-ass battery-powered vibrator is the only thing that even gets you close. The rare times you orgasm are more “meh” and “god that was a lot of work” than mindblowing.

    Enter the Hitcahi Magic Wand. When it finally gave me, after 14 years, the ability orgasm at will, and to feel what a good orgasm actually feels like, I probably masturbated 150 times that month.

    This toy is definitely not for women who are sensitive to light touches and can cum easily from them. Could be wrong, but I imagine someone who has taken to reviewing sex toys doesn’t have much trouble in that department.

    But this toy is a miracle for the very high percentage of women who have difficulty achieving orgasm. THANK YOU HITACHI.
