Wet for Her Two finger dildoThe Wet for Her Two is… um, actually, what is it? Is it a dildo? A sleeve? Should I call it a “finger extender”? I don’t know. It’s just… long silicone fingers with a hole in the end for human fingers. The first 3 inches or so of the toy are hollow, leaving the last 2 inches solid.

The Two comes in a semi-classy oversized cardboard box with a plastic window. The back of the box features an awkward black and white photo of two fingers resting strategically atop a boob, concealing the nipple. The dildo itself sits in a rectangular foam cut-out, and is not wrapped or sealed in any way. When I opened mine, the dildo was covered in little white fuzzies. It went straight to the sink.

One aside before I get into the toy. I feel the need to address the way this company, Wet for Her, chooses to market the Two. This is probably translated from French, but the box says:

Wet for Her is the lesbian company who have created the first and original lesbian sextoy. Our concept is that when a girl couple wants to introduce a toy in their sexual relationship they use a regular toy which is not shaped or designed to represent our sexuality. Now more than ever the lesbian community is coming out. We have chosen a theme which gives us an opportunity to keep developing our world. Our sexuality is our common point.

Things wrong with this paragraph:

  1. First lesbian sex toy. Really.
  2. “Girl couple.” This is probably a bad translation from French, but still. Women. WOMEN.
  3. “Not shaped or designed to represent our sexuality.” So all the lesbian-identified people who use cock-shaped dildos are doin’ it wrong? Sorry, sexuality is not cut and dry.

Okay, I get it — you’re lesbians and you’re REALLY EXCITED that you made a finger extender. Doesn’t mean that non-lesbians don’t have fingers. Or vaginas. I just don’t get this kind of marketing. Why alienate anyone who doesn’t identify as a lesbian, when you could instead play up the fact that most people HAVE FINGERS? It boggles the mind.

That said, let me contradict myself. While my boyfriend does have fingers, it’s not often I want to be fingered. Other things, like dildos and cocks, hit my G-spot better. So I suppose I was hoping the Two would be so amazing that I’d suddenly love being fingered.

Nope.

But that doesn’t mean it sucks. It’s just for very particular people (no, not just lesbians!). It’s for people who are really into the concept of fingering. If you masturbate by inserting a few fingers and thrusting (and probably aren’t reading this blog…), this toy is awesome. It extends the fingers nicely and makes fingering one’s self far more comfortable.

If, however, you are me, sex toy fiend Epiphora, the Two gets in the way. If I wear it on my fingers, my hand gets in the way of my clit, and clit obstruction is just not tolerated around these parts. I can grasp it without putting my fingers in it, but that’s awkward and messy.

It hits my G-spot marginally well. I feel it the most when I leave it stationary and clench around it. Strangely, thrusting with it produces only mild G-spot sensations — I think because it’s just not big enough to put adequate pressure on my G-spot. I did squirt a little with it, once, because I was clenching it while I came, but I can squirt at the drop of a hat these days.

The Two is made of 100% silicone, which is not exactly a replica of human skin, so it does feel somewhat synthetic in use. The shape is a decent representation of fingers, but it won’t fool anyone. The entire length of my fingers fits into the Two snugly. My boyfriend has larger fingers, though, and the Two only fits halfway down his fingers.

When my boyfriend used the Two on me, it was lackluster. It feels like a toy, not like real fingers, and thrusting didn’t do much for me at all. Wearing a silicone sheath over one’s fingers also dulls the sensation of fingering someone, which may take away from the ~intimacy~ of fingering, if that is important to you. And as you might imagine, making the Two do your bidding is a lot harder than making your own fingers do your bidding (e.g., you can’t curl your fingers much while using the Two).

The Two is a great idea, and I’m glad it exists. It does a decent job of extending the fingers comfortably. But — despite what its creators believe — its target audience is a small one. In any case, Halloween is coming up, and I can think of more than a few awesome, non-sex ways this toy could be used. They mostly involve scaring children, which I fully endorse at any and all times.

    I don’t get this toy. At all. I love being fingered, but the whole point is that fingers are flexible and can do all sorts of interesting things. Since it’s rigid, all the Two does is take away the entire point of fingering, for me. It’s like someone coming out with a GREAT NEW TOY that makes a penis soft.

  • http://pollyvincere.wordpress.com Polly Vincere

    I would HATE this. I love to finger-fuck women because I can feel them clinching down on me – even with a glove. I imagine this would take that sensation right away. It also looks like it would be difficult to use in more ways than one.
    Thanks for trying it out & please take pictures of using it to scare children. :)

    I give them kudos for what they tried to do, honestly. There is a valid point to the idea that dildos as a group are usually pretty phallocentric (or non-sexual in shape. Praying Mantis? Giraffe? Nonphallic, but not… sexy, either). I can see how they’d design this for those who enjoy penetration, like fingering, and have no interest in anything that looks like a penis. I can kinda follow their logic that far.

    HOWEVER. They really, really, REALLY need to fire their toy designer (since this sounds like an epic flop), their marketing team, and their translators. And probably everyone in the company that OK’ed this idea. TRAINWRECK and a half.

    You had better have some stories about terrifying children with this when Halloween gets here! :P

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @Luscious Lily: Yeah, I can follow that logic too. If they’d framed it in terms of “here’s a toy for those who want a non-phallic shape,” that would’ve made a lot more sense — and wouldn’t alienate anyone.

  • http://ofsexandlove.com Adriana

    Interesting read!

  • http://twitter.com/hopeandmemory Liz

    I think the entire point of wanting to be fingered is feeling… you know… actual, human fingers that move and curl and such. But, y’know. Whatever floats your boat.

    The marketing bit about lesbians was weird, though. Because obviously the only things lesbians can use to get off are fingers. What is this I don’t even. I’d be interested to see the actual French text, though, because I took French for seven years, so I’m curious as to whether this is a reliable translation.

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @Liz: You should try going to the French section of Wet for Her’s website!

  • Bri

    I would like to make a formal request for a list of your scaring children ideas. Because I see absolutely NO OTHER USE for this in my world. I agree that focus on non-phallic shape marketing would have been better.

  • Brittany

    Yeah, I can’t see using that, ever. I’d rather just use a dildo. Thanks for the review, though!

  • sophie2229

    It looks like it would break your fingers?

    @Epiphora:

    All right, I read the “about” bit and then the part about the toy, and here’s what I translated it as… which seems to make a bit more sense than what you found.

    About the Two
    “In a very refined form of medium size, the toy Two allows the ability to control the sex toy by gliding one’s fingers inside the body and having a free thumb to play with the clitoris all while penetrating one’s partner. (Specs etc) The toy Two was given four stars by Babeland, a lesbian sex shop in the US.”

    About WetForHer
    “WetForHer: a company of which the name itself defies preconceived ideas and political correctness in proposing a new approach to female sexuality. Impertinent and glam, incorrect (improper?) and elite, playful and unique, chic and shocking: such is the gamut of products by WetForHer, initiated and conceived by girls who prefer girls. (They use “filles,” which means girls. I suspect this is because “femme,” which means “woman,” is another word for “wife.”)

    Toys, gadgets, clothing, the line WetForHer allows girls from 18 to 78 to affirm their difference and preferences with humor and elegance.

    Emblematic of the label Wet ForHer, One is the first of such toys that bring forth a question: why must all sex toys be phallic? Other questions follow, brushing away stereotypes: Why wouldn’t lesbians have toys specifically created for them? Why wouldn’t such a toy profit from a truly elegant design? Why deprive lesbians of the opportunity to discover new, playful horizons?

    Many of these questions WetForHer took into account with a big dose of style and… two fingers of humor! (I suspect there’s a joke in there but it gets lost in translation.)

    More than a simple designer and retailer of products, WetForHer also wants to reflect a certain state of mind. True to their identity, our company upports the community and so donates to LGBT groups, sponsors events, supports new lesbian companies and groups… Believing in open-mindedness, WetForHer can’t function without reciprocity to that effect, and thinks that the similarities between people are more important than their differences. Do you think so as well?

    Welcome to WetForHer.”

    @Liz: Haha, that is glorious! My favorite: “girls from 18 to 78.”

  • http://twitter.com/hopeandmemory Liz

    @Epiphora: Haha, I know, right? I burst out laughing at that (before I was briefly horrified by the image of, like… my grandma going to town on herself, ahhhh. I know older people are sexual beings and all but… no).

  • http://duskinchains.wordpress.com Dusk

    Thanks for the review! I had been wondering about these, but…eh. Looks like they weren’t all that great. Makes sense, since I feel like people would either want a funky shaped dildo or their partner’s fingers, but not funky black fingers.

  • Selective Sensualist

    I’d been curious about this, but am less enthusiastic about trying it out now. If I was offered one of these, I certainly wouldn’t turn down trying it out, but I won’t be prioritizing it on my out-of-control Wish List either!

  • http://www.carynska.blogspot.com CarynSKA

    Huh… I’ve honestly never seen a toy like this before. Thanks for the review though!

  • Trish

    @Liz (and everyone else wondering about the “two fingers” pun on the original product website):

    The “two fingers of humor” is indeed a pun. It refers to, on the one hand (ha!), the sex toy, which is shaped like two fingers, and on the other hand, a method of ordering alcoholic drinks. In the past (this is a somewhat old-fashioned way of ordering drinks), when ordering straight alcoholic beverages (as opposed to mixed drinks), people would indicate how much of a drink they want by saying how many “fingers” they wanted – one finger, two fingers, etc. If you’re not sure what I mean by this, it essentially refers to as much alcohol as would cover the width (not length) of two fingers, when measured from the bottom of the glass (if you hold your fingers against the outside of the glass). You could also order one fingers’ worth, three fingers’ worth, etc. So, “two fingers of humor” is a fairly substantial amount of humor, and is a cute play on the product.

    Hope that helped!

  • http://twitter.com/hopeandmemory Liz

    @Trish: Aha! Well, that makes a bit more sense now. Thanks for clearing that up.

  • http://sexxxay.blogspot.com Sexxxay

    I don’t know about scaring children, but seeing the bit about 78 year olds using it has definitely changed me for ever. Scarred and scared. *shudder*

  • http://www.namelesschaos.com namelesschaos

    @Sexxxay: I’m clearly not normal as my first thought was why stop at 78, why didn’t they pick 88 or 98? I mean if your going to town on yourself at 78 I don’t think your going to wake up on your 79th b-day and decide to stop.

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @namelesschaos: That’s what I thought too, haha.

  • MF

    I find this super creepy. Even though getting fingered is my favorite, this is kind of a boner-killer.

  • Trix

    It just looks intimidating and unsensual. I can imagine it in some sort of BDSM play for some reason, maybe because it evokes a black welding glove. (BTW, I assumed the “two fingers” reference meant that WetForHer was metaphorically flipping off the patriarchy. In the UK and Ireland, holding up two fingers in peace sign formation with your palm facing in instead of out is the equivalent of flipping the bird. Don’t know if it is in France, though, and the fingers are together on the toy, so I probably just took too many symbolism classes in college.) And yes, the child-scaring reference is WIN.

  • LucyLemonade

    This seems like a gadget Edward Scissorhands would use. Nice concept, but yes, slightly creepy looking.

  • http://heartbreaknympho.com Wilhelmina

    um… what? i echo the sentiments of many of the previous commenters. my fingers are short, but i may as well use a dildo (easier to control & gain leverage!) instead. i love the act and intimacy of fingering, using this toy would spoil the experience rather than enhance it, IMHO.

  • NawlinsDawlin06

    I loved your sarcasm in this review. You made me chuckle on more than one occasion.

  • http://mmafterhours.blogspot.com/ Missy

    This is one of the strangest toys I have seen, and like others have said – it makes no sense. I guess they just wanted to make something new?

  • http://www.fantasticallynaughty.com Jess Manifesto

    Just goes to show, different strokes for different folks. Though the marketing is stupid, I’ve had a great experience with this toy. It helps my partner hit my g-spot every time and major squirting happens.

    I find the emphasis on girl-only use silly (and obtuse), since the reason /I/ want this toy is to “finger” my boyfriend. His prostate is slightly too far in to reach comfortably with my stubby digits, and he doesn’t like much pressure on it. Shucks :-P

    I’m not sure about this toy. Me thinks it wouldn’t be a favorite.
    Show us pics of scary Halloween fingers though!
